RUSH: I’m gonna start with Rob in Columbus. It’s great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Hi. Thanks very much for taking my call and it’s a great honor and privilege to be a part of helping spread the light of truth.

RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.

CALLER: Oh, it’s a great honor. Well, I just wanted to let you know that on the Ohio State University campus there were very active campaign functions going on. They were going door-to-door pumping people up to get them to the Obama event and passing out literature.

RUSH: Is that right? What day was this?

CALLER: It was actually last week. I tried to get through. It could have been last Sunday, but through Monday and Tuesday it was an ongoing event.

RUSH: So they knew. They knew or suspected a week prior to the event they weren’t gonna sell the place out and they were going door-to-door trying to get people to show up Saturday?

CALLER: Absolutely. And also under the guise of, “You know, this really doesn’t have anything to do with politics. It’s just that the president’s coming.”

RUSH: That’s what they were saying?

CALLER: That’s what at least some of them were saying.

RUSH: Some of these people going door-to-door trying to get people to show up said, “It has nothing to do with politics. It’s just the president’s coming”?

CALLER: Yeah. Denying that it’s politics.

RUSH: It was only his campaign reelection announcement.

CALLER: Exactly!

RUSH: Nothing to do with politics?

CALLER: Right. You know, I kind of —

RUSH: What’s he gonna do, introduce Julia?

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: By the way, you know Julia is a character in the book 1984 by Orwell? Oh, yeah! Yeah. I wish I’d-a remembered that last week. Julia is a character in Orwell’s 1984. Anyway, this is interesting to note here, Rob, that they’re going door-to-door. Why didn’t they go on their website, Organizing for America? Where were the union people breaking legs to get people out? I mean, sending kids, college students door-to-door trying to drum up a crowd?

CALLER: I think they’re afraid of adults, as you well know.

RUSH: I’ll tell you what: You know, it’s an excellent point. Rob, you are very shrewd, because Obama has given up on “white working-class voters.” They made that announcement last November. He’s speaking to mostly college audiences where celebrity trumps accomplishments. He is trying to pass himself off as celebrity. That’s what I think it means when you say they’re going door-to-door saying, “Oh, it’s not political that the president’s coming. The Celebrity of the United States is coming, not the President of the United States!” So they’ve basically accepted that the only crowd they can get is college students. That’s who’s at every speech in the last couple of weeks, anyway.

CALLER: Yes. May I please add that I have a theory about this? There’s a pattern not just of his campaign but he has a three-pronged programming of deceiving. He says the opposite of what he really means. The second thing he does is he destroys what he actually says he cared about. And then the third thing is he deflects attention away from it and denies he has everything to do with it.

RUSH: All right. Here comes the final exam: Give me examples of each.

CALLER: Oh, sure! For example, the stimulus program. “Oh, I care about the economy or I care about green energy,” and that’s the deception. The second part is —

RUSH: Whoa, whoa, whoa. He cares about…? You mean he really doesn’t mean it?

CALLER: Of course not.

RUSH: He doesn’t? He didn’t believe in the stimulus?

CALLER: He says he does. He acts like he does. That’s the deception portion of it. And then the second part is he actually goes around and destroys it. He makes sure that he spends money with nothing left to show for it at the end of the day.

RUSH: He’s doing this on purpose you believe?

CALLER: Absolutely.

RUSH: For what end?

CALLER: Well, the only goal that I can see is that he does not like the way things are here in the United States and he wants to change them and it’s kind of payback time.

RUSH: Okay.

CALLER: I don’t know. I mean, that’s —

RUSH: I know. It’s tough. It’s tough to get your arms around this. I know. Why destroy it? Even though you hate it, why destroy it?

CALLER: Well, take the “Cash for Clunkers” program. There was not a penny in cash or a clunker accepted. It was a trade-in destruction program. You had to first take a perfectly good running automobile to then be eligible for buying a brand-new car and using that as a trade-in to get an additional discount. And here you’ve got both Republicans and Democrats calling it “Cash for Clunkers.” It had nothing to do with either of those two. It was a trade-in destruction program. So the first thing you do is you deceive saying —

RUSH: Well, now, wait a minute. You know, he’s right about this. The cars that were traded in were destroyed. They were, folks. It was basically, “Get rid of the gas guzzler,” which equals the clunker, “and we’ll give you a deal buying a car you’d really rather not have.” You know, some tiny little golf cart-type thing with a couple seats on it. Now, what’s your third example?

CALLER: Well, if anything… For example, I know that this is supposed to be taboo but let’s say with his birth certificate. He says he was born in the United States. He has not shown a genuine, authentic, verifiable original. In order to authenticate any document, you need to have the original.

RUSH: Wait just a second. They did release a birth certificate.

CALLER: An original?

RUSH: Even Donald Trump is said to be satisfied with it.

CALLER: But from a copy of anything you can’t be satisfied. You have to actually examine the original. In order for any document examiner in a court of law — or a George Washington or Abram Lincoln autograph or whatnot. To have an expert authenticate it, you can’t go by a copy. You have to examine the ink on the paper as well as many other things.

RUSH: Okay. What are your thoughts on the fact that Obama’s Social Security number is from Connecticut and he’s never been there?

CALLER: Exactly. That’s what you call a “red flag.” A red flag is also, “I’ll give you my birth certificate. First of all, I don’t need to give you my birth certificate,” and then finally, “I’ll give you a copy. Oh, that’s a modern copy.” Oh, we want the other copy. We don’t need copies. We want originals.

RUSH: Okay. Well, um…

CALLER: The third example. How about another one? Release your college records. You’re going to all these colleges, Mr. President. How about releasing all of your college papers and let’s see what you really thought about America when you were in college? He’s deceiving us.

RUSH: Right. Well, yeah, that’s true. They don’t want us to see what those term papers and doctoral theses were actually about. Nor do they want us to see the grades.

CALLER: (chuckling) Yeah.

RUSH: They don’t want us to see the grades. Okay, well, look, Rob, this is cool. I’m glad you called.
