RUSH: Salem, Oregon, Bob, glad you called. You are up next on the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Hello. Yeah, what country did your forefathers come from?

RUSH: What country did my forefathers come from?


RUSH: They had mixture of the Dutch and English.

CALLER: Then why in the hell don’t you get your ass back over there? Seems like I listen to your ass all the time and you know what? You need to go back over there and live, not here. You are running our country into the ground.


CALLER: And Obama, who’s trying to do something good —

RUSH: Wait a second.

CALLER: — for the poor people —

RUSH: Bob.

CALLER: — and not you rich bastards like you’ve got now.

RUSH: Bob.


RUSH: I am running the country into the ground?

CALLER: Yeah, you are.

RUSH: What have I done, Bob? How have I made your —

CALLER: You’re constantly on Obama, constantly, because he’s black?


CALLER: Is that why?

RUSH: What’s that got to do with anything? That’s got nothing to do with it.

CALLER: You guys came over here and took over our country.

RUSH: Ohhhh, you’re an Indian?

CALLER: That’s right. That’s right.

RUSH: And I’m a white guy, right?

CALLER: Born and raised and everything, and my whole family was here. All my forefathers way back to when before the white man settled on the Pilgrim over there —

RUSH: See?

CALLER: — you know, the pilgrims and Plymouth.

RUSH: Snerdley, thank you for finding this guy. Bob, you’re a godsend. I mean you have just made my point. You sound like Helen Thomas, who said the Jews ought to go back home, and now you’re telling me I need to go back home. You’re saying the white guys came over here and destroyed the country. That’s exactly what Obama thinks. No wonder you support Obama. See, this is exactly what I mean.

CALLER: Yeah, and you run him in the ground when he tries to do something for the poor people.

RUSH: What’s he done for the poor people, Bob?

CALLER: Well, what has he done? He’s got health care for everybody. I got a brother-in-law who’s Indian —

RUSH: Bob, come on —

CALLER: — and his girlfriend who’s not, but she got insurance for nothing because they don’t have a job —

RUSH: You know what, I really —

CALLER: — and he can’t find a job because he’s Indian. Nobody will hire him. Now, what are you going to say about that, huh, Rush?

RUSH: Bob, I feel sorry for you.

CALLER: Now, why do you feel sorry for me? I don’t (bleep) yet.

RUSH: You got it. Anyway, Bob. Don’t bleep him. This is your average Obama supporter and I think people need to hear average Obama supporters.

CALLER: You’re turning it around. I’m not a supporter of Obama.


CALLER: Okay, I’m just saying the man is trying, and you’re saying he’s not doing nothing. All this he wants everybody to love him, and all this kind of garbage. That’s (bleep).

RUSH: Bob, here’s the thing. Obama’s destroying health care for everybody, and he’s pricing it outta everybody’s existence. That’s the truth. He’s done nothing but make more and more people poor by eliminating jobs in this country. There are fewer jobs to be had. The economic activity has slowed down to virtually nothing.

CALLER: I pity Bush and them did that (bleep) when they signed that NAFTA or whatever the (bleep) it is with Mexico, send them (bleep) every one of them back. I don’t care if they’re born here or not. Send their (bleep) back there and let ’em have their own country to run and live off of. They can’t. They come over here and we buy and we — do you have one in your household?

RUSH: Do I have what?

CALLER: A Mexican.

RUSH: No. I don’t have a Mexican in my household. What does that got to do with anything?

CALLER: Well, I just said, we all need to send them back to where they belong, too, give this land back to the Indians. Hell, we had to all jump through the hoops to put our dam over here on the West Coast to put in on our own land that’s governed by —

RUSH: Bob.

CALLER: — the United States government, white people.

RUSH: Bob, now you sound like Jeremiah Wright. Join the club. There are some farmers in Bakersfield that lost their land to a snail darter and they’re white guys.

CALLER: — job, and the casinos over here. If you’re not 50-50, you don’t get a job.

RUSH: Bob, did you vote for Obama?

CALLER: No, I did not.

RUSH: Who did you vote for?

CALLER: I didn’t vote.

RUSH: Oh. What tribe do you belong to?

CALLER: Cherokee.

RUSH: Cherokee. Is your view rampant throughout the Cherokee nation?

CALLER: Pretty much.

RUSH: Pretty much?

CALLER: The meetings I go to, yeah, when I go back to Oklahoma where the Cherokee nation is, yes, I fly back there. I try to fly back there at least every other year or so, and to the Nation. (yelling at dog) Get up here! Come here! Gotta yell at my dog. Come here!

RUSH: What kinda dog do you have?

CALLER: A little poodle.

RUSH: A poodle?

CALLER: Yeah, I’m disabled and he keeps me company.

RUSH: You don’t sound like a poodle guy.

CALLER: Yep. I’m a poodle guy. He’s a baby poodle. He weighs seven pounds, six pounds, something like that. Come here. He’s just a pup. He’s four months old.

RUSH: Four months old? He’s a cute little SOB, right?

CALLER: — and not rag on Obama all the time. You know what, I don’t ever listen to the radio, I mean I like to listen to KEX radio channel 1190 in Oregon.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: But when you come on I turn it off, man, because all I’m gonna hear —

RUSH: Well, then how do you know what I’m talking about?

CALLER: I’ve listened to you enough, you know, and I just got tired of it.

RUSH: What did I just say that made you mad that caused you to call here?

CALLER: Raging on Obama.

RUSH: What did I say?

CALLER: He’s a president of the United States of America.

RUSH: And that’s a shame, but what did I say? What specifically did I say?

CALLER: Man, don’t the guy deserve some respect?

RUSH: Uhhh —

CALLER: He’s the first black man that ever got in there and he’s trying to do something for people and you driving him in the ground for it.

RUSH: Well, Bob, let’s accept your premise, just for the sake of discussion, that he’s trying to do something for people.


RUSH: He’s failing. What he’s doing is to us. The man is destroying the nation. He’s destroying the engine that creates jobs and economic prosperity and opportunity. The man is a one-man wrecking crew. I say this with all respect. He would agree with me. He is accomplishing what he set out to accomplish. He’s happy, Bob, he’s having a grand old time. No president has ever had the kind of success Obama’s had in such a short period of time.

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: Do you think Obama’s unhappy?

CALLER: You crack me up. Yeah, ’cause he thinks he’s doing something for the United States. He thinks he’s doing something for the American people, which is me. Not you. Me.

RUSH: Oh. Okay. I see. I’m not the American people, you are.

CALLER: Yeah, that’s right.

RUSH: Okay.

CALLER: ‘Cause you weren’t born, your forefathers weren’t born in this country, and then here comes the poor black people.

RUSH: Wait a minute.

CALLER: — they’re rounded up and they mutilated them, they raped them, they pillaged them —

RUSH: My forefathers were born in this country.

CALLER: Pardon me?

RUSH: My forefathers were born in this country. Are you the rightful owner of the country? Is that what you believe, do you think that you’re one of the rightful owners of the country that —

CALLER: Yes, I do.

RUSH: — you were here at one with nature —

CALLER: The Cherokee nation, yes, I do.

RUSH: One with nature and you guys, you’re never at war with one another, all the tribes got along and you got along with the Mexicans and never slaughtered the buffalo, everything was hunky-dory, and then Columbus showed up and then the white guy showed up and here came syphilis and here came racism and sexism and bigotry and homophobia and environmental destruction?

CALLER: That’s right. You got it.

RUSH: Thanks, Bob. Appreciate it. There’s your average Obama voter, and it’s exactly what Obama thinks. Bob, God, I love you, man. That’s a classic make the host look good. It’s the primary job of caller, and Bob did it.


RUSH: Well, there you have it, folks, all summed up into one little call on the EIB Network: ‘Obama is trying to help the poor people.’ The poor people are the real Americans. I’m not a real American. That’s Bob, a member of the Cherokee tribe. Snerdley asked him how he got a name like Bob, and he didn’t answer you? (interruption) He didn’t have an answer for that. Well, who knows? He’s got a French poodle. I wonder if Bob thinks all the Mexicans ought to go back to Mexico. (interruption) He did? He did? Oh, okay. (interruption) Oh, that’s right, ’cause he asked me how many Mexicans were in my house. Okay. I guess he should ask Meg Whitman that.


Man! My forefathers, actually, they’re from Germany. German, Dutch, and English. There actually was a town in Germany, Limbach, and my family emigrated to North Carolina. Yeah, we did a whole genealogical trace. There was a town in Germany named Limbach. L-I-M-B-A-C-H. Yeah, my grandfather did this huge, massive genealogical trace, and came up with that, yeah. So German and Dutch is basically it. Some English, but primarily German and Dutch.


RUSH: You people think I was lying to you. My own staff is looking it up. There’s a town in Germany, it’s in Saxony, it’s called Limbach. It’s actually Limbach-Oberfrohna. It’s in the Zwickau district of the free state of Saxony. Snerdley is in there looking it up! You know what? I ought to get Hank Haney in here to guest host the program tomorrow while I’m out taking my own golf lessons. And I wonder… Hey, Bob! Indian Bob. Do you have a town named after you, Bob, in Oklahoma? You come from a town named after you? Cause I do: Limbach in Germany.
