RUSH: Brad, Cleveland. Great to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: It’s Fred from Cleveland, Rush, but that’s okay. Can you hear me?
RUSH: Yeah, I hear you fine. You’re right, it’s Fred. I didn’t have my glasses on there and just misread it, Fred. My bad.
CALLER: Hey, that’s all right. Okay. I have a different view on things. I’m a fellow student of the EIB Network. I live in Realville. And my big picture, I see Trump winning all over the place, no one sees it. I have a feeling that Putin is going to give up Assad. I have a feeling Obamacare is going to be repealed within the next month or two. I think there’s going to an avalanche in the CIA of whistleblowers and the FBI. There’s too many good people working for the government that can keep secrets and keep quiet. They’re gonna start coming forward. It’s all falling apart for the Democrats. They are stalling for time, and they’re just about out. The Russia thing with Trump is over and done. The investigation should be called off.
RUSH: Well —
CALLER: We’re seeing the difference right now between an agitator-in-chief and a commander-in-chief. That’s what we’re seeing, a leader and a follower.
RUSH: Well, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Who’s the agitator-in-chief right now?
CALLER: No, I’m saying what we dealt with for eight years, President Obama.
CALLER: The agitator-in-chief.
RUSH: Well, yeah, I just wanted to hear you say it. You could have been thinking of a media person.
CALLER: I’m sorry for not being clear.
RUSH: That’s all right. So you think, let me summarize, you think that Trump is just gonna just blow everybody away and win everything and it isn’t gonna be long and the Democrats are gonna be embarrassed and humiliated and every effort they are engaging in to destroy Trump’s gonna backfire on ’em?
CALLER: Yes, 100 percent. I think Chuck Schumer will be running from the cameras. Hillary Clinton will be running back to the woods. President Obama won’t be coming back to Washington. He’ll do everything he can to stay away because what I saw when the transition took place is their lack of preparedness for Trump to win. So they could not hide all their illegalities over the eight years because they were so confident that Hillary was gonna take over and then they could take their time and wipe the slate clean. They didn’t have enough time with Trump’s election and they all know it. Obama knows it, Rice knows it. They’re panicking.
RUSH: You’ve stumbled into something. When you said that they were not prepared for Trump winning, I think that is just shy of profound, in the implications. They weren’t prepared for Trump winning, and so they’ve been blindsided by a lot. And they are reacting to everything Trump’s doing in panic. But I like your confidence.
I know what he’s saying. He thinks that eventually we’re gonna get Obamacare repealed. We’re gonna get the tax cuts, that Trump is going to prevail. He’s gonna figure everything out, figure out how he needs to do this and do that to get it done. He’s in the process of this happening. And the Democrats have nothing to fall back on because everything they’ve done is not based in reality and substance and so forth. And so it’s flimsy, it can fall apart. I like the thinking and I know a lot of people are hoping that a circumstance or situation like you’ve described does eventuate.
I have to confess that I am more like this guy than I am anywhere like any detractors. I really am, folks. I’m not nearly as troubled by these day-to-day little spitballs they’re launching at the guy. I have an inexplicable optimism about how most of this is going to turn out.
