RUSH: We go to Indianapolis. Jeff, I’m glad you called. Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Yes, thank you, Mr. Limbaugh. Now, I wanted the liberals out there to have this (unintelligible) for a long time. I started back in 1992 listening to you from WLS Big 89 in Chicago. Now (unintelligible) I listen to you on WIBC 93.1 FM in Indianapolis. Now, this call is ironic because I was the first caller you took on Election Day in 1994.

RUSH: You are the first caller I took on Election Day 1994, the very first caller?

CALLER: Yes, I am.

RUSH: On Election Day, or the day after?

CALLER: Election Day.

RUSH: All right. Okay. Well, you’re the second caller Election Day 2010.

CALLER: Yes. And also, I am the one who is very aware all the things that the conservatives listen to. And it’s kinda strange that the Tea Party movement is running around talking about Obama is a socialist. Obama is a communist. I’ll betcha half of ’em haven’t even read the Communist Manifesto or Das Kapital. I read both of them and I also read The Road to Serfdom by Hayek and I also read some (unintelligible) stuff, too. I know where it comes from.

RUSH: You read The Road to Serfdom by who?

CALLER: Frederick von Hayek.

RUSH: Yeah, Friedrich von Hayek.


RUSH: I’m impressed if you got through that because that’s a tough slog in spots.

CALLER: Yes, I have it on my computer, I downloaded it.

RUSH: Well, that’s excellent.

CALLER: I also downloaded Free to Choose by Milton Friedman

RUSH: So you’re calling to congratulate me, then?

CALLER: No, what I’m saying is there’s a lot of distortion going on, and you are part of it.

RUSH: What? What am I distorting out there, Jeff?

CALLER: Because you’re actually getting people to think that Obama is the Second Coming of socialism or communism. I can’t see it.

RUSH: Well, then you’re blind.

CALLER: No, I’m not blind. I’m not blind.

RUSH: Well, then you’re wearing shades that are too dark.

CALLER: I’m not blind. I can see very clearly.

RUSH: Okay, if you don’t like communism, socialism, he’s a Marxist, he’s a Stalinist, he’s a totalitarian. Jeff, you know who he really wishes he could be? I think Obama regrets that he wasn’t born soon enough to be alive in the sixties. I think he really identifies with people back then. If he could be anybody, it would be Castro.

CALLER: Oh, come on, please, please.

RUSH: Oh, yeah. I think if Obama could be anybody, either Castro or maybe Che Guevara.

CALLER: No, no, no, never.

RUSH: Look, John McCain even called him a socialist.

CALLER: Yeah, because it’s easy to put that label on somebody. You guys are good at that.

RUSH: Well, yeah, McCain doesn’t do that. That’s my point. McCain would call himself a bad name first.

CALLER: Yeah, anything to try to win an election. Of course, you try fearmongering and stuff like that. That’s good.

RUSH: What’s —

CALLER: (unintelligible.)

RUSH: So you read — wait a minute, now.

CALLER: — (unintelligible) but a lot of people don’t even understand what socialism or communism really is.

RUSH: All right, so what’s the point of all this?

CALLER: The point of all this is if the Republicans take over the House of Representatives you guys are gonna be in for a rude awakening.

RUSH: You don’t think the Republicans are going to win control of the House?

CALLER: They might, but if they do, your side is gonna be in for a rude awakening, especially the Tea Party movement who actually think the Republicans are actually gonna do something about cutting spending. The first thing they’re gonna do is raise the deficit — (crosstalk)

RUSH: Oh, I see, I get it, you think that the Tea Party and me and a whole bunch of others, we’re gonna be disappointed no matter what happens today?

CALLER: You’re gonna be shocked, you’re gonna be disappointed somewhat because the first thing they’re gonna have to do is raise the deficit to keep funding the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq because they don’t want those troops out of Afghanistan or Iraq. Obama does, people on your side don’t. Somebody’s gonna have to pay for that.

RUSH: Jeff, I have to tell you something. I have to agree with you on one thing. We are gonna be disappointed tomorrow. Obama is still gonna be president. There’s gonna be a lot of people very sad about that. We know that today and tomorrow are just the first steps to fixing things and people like you, get your mind right, get you to join the virtuous side of things. ‘Cause if I were to ask you the difference between socialism and what Obama is doing, you wouldn’t have an answer, you’d say I’m fearmongering and so forth. Jeff, it’s worth fearmongering, it’s worth being afraid. It’s worth being frightened of where the Democrat Party is taking this country. It makes total sense to be frightened, it makes total sense to be angry, it’s common sense. Anything else and I would have to question the mind-set of the American people.


RUSH: You know, the real question here, I mean the guy calls from Indianapolis saying we’re gonna be really disappointed tomorrow, what’s gonna happen tomorrow. The real question is what’s gonna happen tonight on CNN and MSNBC as the election returns come in? The real question is what will the liberals do tomorrow? How will they decide they want to prolong their lives?
