RUSH: Monmouth, Maine, as we head next to the phones. This is Mick. Mick, it’s great to have you here, sir. How are you?
CALLER: I’m well. Thank you for asking. And how are you, sir?
RUSH: Very well. Glad to have you with us today.
CALLER: Well, thank you for taking my call. It’s a quick question. During the second presidential campaign for President Obama, you had mentioned that you weren’t sure if we could take another eight years, that the first four years were brutal and the second four years, you had serious doubts. And he ended up winning and the country went the way that you predicted it would go, and I’m just wondering now, has the pendulum swung too far? The voice of political correctness and snowflaking and all this, or do you think we can come back to a more friendlier place?
RUSH: Well, I got confused in your Obama timeline. Did I say a second term of Obama we couldn’t recover from? Is that what you remember me saying?
CALLER: Yes, sir. That is correct.
RUSH: I think I said four years or even especially eight years of Hillary would take us there. I know that after the second term of Obama I was still planning on staying here, and that was because it wasn’t over. Now, to get to the thrust of your question, all that’s really happened here — it’s not all; that’s the wrong way to say it ’cause we’ve won one election.
But I stand by what I said last week. We remain a great nation at risk in a dangerous world because there’s still a lot of swamp draining that has to happen, and we have to fix this immigration problem or we’re simply gonna lose the kind of country we were founded to be, regardless of what else happens. Now I’m up against it on time. I will continue this. I’m not skating on this. I never skate on anything.
RUSH: Okay. I’ll briefly answer the guy’s question when we get back. Just the short version: We are in much, much better shape. I mean, it’s not even close than if Hillary had won. We have a fighting chance now.
