RUSH: This is Felicia in Marianna, Florida. Hi, Felicia. Nice to have you with us.
CALLER: Well, hi, Rush. It’s wonderful to actually be able to speak to you. I’ve been listening to you since you started in Sacramento. I used to live in the big town of Rio Vista.
RUSH: Yeah, dangerously close to Rio Linda.
CALLER: Dangerously close to Rio Linda.
CALLER: But now I live in Marianna, which is almost the end of — you can kind of see it from here, but anyway. Monday, my husband, well, he was contacted last week by an Obama operative and this past Monday he agreed to have one of those Obama birthday parties —
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait. When is Obama’s birthday?
CALLER: It was Monday, I believe.
RUSH: It was Monday — oh, you already had the party?
CALLER: We had the party this past Monday. And he wanted to have it in my house, and I said, ‘No,’ of course not. So he has it in our office that we share here, and I find out from my brother-in-law later that he’s taken my Reagan posters and all of my Rush Limbaugh memorabilia, including the letter you sent me thanking me for the spotted owl coffee mug I sent you, he turned it all to face the wall so that the Obama people wouldn’t see them.
RUSH: How long have you been married?
CALLER: Well, I think maybe a little too long. I’m wondering if you can help me out with that.
RUSH: I’m the last person you want advice on either marriage or relationships from, ’cause mine is, ‘Don’t do it.’ But that’s just for me. The fact is, how long have you been married? I need to know this.
CALLER: Oh, well, we’ve been married 17 years now.
RUSH: Seventeen years. Has this guy always been a commie lib?
CALLER: No, no.
RUSH: So how did he get roped into the Obama mania?
CALLER: They called him and I don’t know if he’s —
RUSH: Wait a sec. You mean this just happened? Wait a minute. This guy has not been for Obama before he got the phone call from Obama campaign asking him to host a stupid birthday party?
CALLER: Well, I think he was on the fence and they just kind of pushed him on the other side.
RUSH: Well, what, what got him to the fence?
CALLER: You know, I’m not sure. I’m not sure if he consumed the Kool-Aid —
RUSH: Are you aware of where your husband goes when he leaves home?
CALLER: Well, I think I may have to have him followed.
RUSH: Well —
RUSH: — something is not right here. Your guy has been pretty much a liberal and has not been bothered at all by your Reagan and Rush memorabilia?
CALLER: No. When we met he purported himself to be a conservative. But now…
RUSH: You just can’t erase 17 years. How was he during those 17 years?
CALLER: Well, you know, he’s been pretty much to the right side of the fence all along. But recently, I don’t know.
RUSH: Well, then something’s happened here, and it’s gotta be more than just this phone call from the Obama camp asking him to host the Obama birthday party in your house. Something else is going on.
CALLER: Well, I definitely —
RUSH: These things just don’t happen overnight like this.
CALLER: Well, no, they don’t, not normally. I mean, I myself am firmly to the right, and I don’t know what has been pulling him to the dark side.
RUSH: You have been politically abandoned.
CALLER: Yes, I have.
RUSH: And the Obama campaign is responsible for alienation of your husband’s affections.
CALLER: That could be. That could be actionable.
RUSH: It could be.
RUSH: Because now all your memorabilia is being turned backwards.
RUSH: Did any of the Obama people wonder why it was turned backwards? Did they see any of it?
CALLER: Well, you know, I don’t know, because I myself refused to attend the party so I’m just getting this information from my brother-in-law.
RUSH: Well, that was another mistake. You don’t abandon the fortress and leave it to the enemy, especially when you’ve got a husband doing inexplicable things like this. You should have hung around. You could have learned a little bit more about how this has all happened. Plus, you don’t know — have you checked your memorabilia? Is it all still there?
CALLER: Well, it all seems to be there, yes.
RUSH: I’d do a quick inventory if I were you because if any of those Obama people saw any of it, particularly stuff with me on it —
RUSH: — it might have mysteriously vanished.
CALLER: Right. Now, he seems to think, he’s now telling me that he is conducting his own Operation Chaos. Could that be possible?
RUSH: Felicia, this is a serious matter. You’re describing someone here who does not sound well.
CALLER: He’s not well, Rush, no. He definitely is unbalanced.
RUSH: Who is that laughing in the background? Is that your husband?
CALLER: That’s him.
RUSH: That’s your husband laughing in the background. You are making this call in front of your husband?
CALLER: I am. Unlike him, I don’t need to hide my actions, you know, at night with only Obama people around.
RUSH: Well, you’re right to call.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: You are right to be concerned about this. You are right to be suspicious. I mean, turning over your domicile, your home, where you live, where you eat, where you sleep, to a bunch of brain-dead messiahaniacs. I understand why you decamped, but you shoulda hung in there. Well, I don’t want to cause any more problems than there already are in this relationship, which is clearly teetering on the edge of solvency.
Joe in Romeo, Michigan. Welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Yeah, thank you, Rush. It’s a pleasure to talk to you.
CALLER: Listen, we were talking about this gas, the tire pressure stuff, inflated or not inflated, what is it going to save on a tank of gas, you know $60 versus $59? You know, it’s just like another tax here in Michigan. We are dead here, Rush, in Michigan, totally dead.
RUSH: Yeah, I know, and I watched Obama in Lansing on Monday and all the architects of Michigan’s death were in the audience, he’s praising them for actions that resulted in the death of the state and they’re all applauding.
RUSH: Michigan is a great little microcosm to watch if you want to see what Obama and liberals in charge of everything could lead to nationwide.
CALLER: Right. And this guy wants to raise the CAFE standards which is another tax, and the auto companies —
RUSH: Wait, wait. See, here’s what you need to say about that. ‘Oh, okay, Messiah, you want to raise the CAFE standards?’
RUSH: But when do they go into effect out there, Joe? Seven, ten years, right?
CALLER: Yeah, another ten years.
RUSH: Because they have to give the auto companies time to ramp up to get their fleet CAFE standards into compliance. So they come up with these CAFE standard increases, but they’re not implemented today, they’re not implemented tomorrow. They’re implemented years out. You can’t CAFE standard your way out of this, folks.
