RUSH: Nikki in Pittsburgh. Nikki, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. A few weeks ago you referenced a song in the movie Camelot in relationship to Hillary Clinton, ‘How to Handle a Woman.’
CALLER: Well, in that same movie Guinevere points out to Lancelot that he lacks ‘hum-il-i-tay,’ humility. She said that in French so he understands it. I think Obama lacks humility, and I think you’re right that the Americans are going to turn against him for that reason, too.
RUSH: Yeah. You know, it’s an interesting — curious and interesting — way to look at him. He lacks humility ’cause that is almost required if one is arrogant, as arrogant as Obama is. I got an e-mail note, Nikki, from somebody (I just read it during the break) saying that I should stop calling Obama names; that is beneath me and it’s not productive. I should stop calling him a jerk and that kind of thing.
RUSH: Maybe that’s true. I just got so mad listening to this stuff today. It’s infuriating. It is unconscionable, and it is infuriating, and you’ve nailed it. He has no humility whatsoever. So I’m going to stop calling him names and I’m just going to call him a con artist, ’cause that’s what he is. He is a con artist. He is conning everybody, and he’s getting away with it ’cause so many people want to be conned. There are a lot of people in this country who want to believe that a guy can come along snap his finger and give them health care, that a guy can come along and make all of other enemies love us. They want to be conned into building this. It’s not that it has to be true; they just want to believe that it’s true, so we got a con man. We have a con man operating here — and that’s not calling him a name.
