RUSH: Here’s Kent in Iberia, Missouri. I’m glad you waited, sir. Welcome to the program.
CALLER: Mega dittos from America’s Heartland, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you. I’ll be very quick because I know you got a lot of people in the queue. I couldn’t agree with you more that Obama revealed his heart when he made that statement about, you know, you are nothing without the collective.
RUSH: That’s right.
CALLER: This whole idea of the individual versus the collective. But he’s right about one thing. There is a collective out there without which every entrepreneur that Romney named in his speech today would not be successful, and that collective is the market. As defined by Adam Smith, it’s the collective economic will of all the suppliers and producers and consumers, you know, that participate in the market. And that’s the engine that drives that success. And if Obama had one logical thought, it would be to get the hell out of the way and let the market do its job.
RUSH: He doesn’t want the market to do its job.
CALLER: I know. You know, you’re absolutely right that he wants a permanent underclass.
RUSH: Don’t doubt me on that.
CALLER: I don’t doubt you on that. A permanent underclass requires one other thing and that’s a permanent class enemy, okay? And that’s this whole campaign against the rich.
RUSH: Well, that is an excellent point. The underclass needs an enemy. And the enemy of the underclass is the achieved.
CALLER: Yep. Stalin did the same thing with the kulaks.
RUSH: You know, you’re talking about the word “collective.” I know what you’re saying, but the problem is collective is a Marxist word. I’m not really fond of it being attached to the market but I know the point that you’re making. Obama doesn’t use the word collective. It’s just you who are educated and informed in these things know exactly what he means. The collective is all of us sacrificing our individuality. The collective is, we’re the masses. We’re the great unwashed. We are not the elites. We are the masses. We’re the nameless, faceless people that comprise the collective, all working together, all equal in a wonderful, magnificent utopia. Of course, led, ruled, reigned over by “Barack Hussein Obama! Mmm! Mmm! Mmm!”
RUSH: Rob in Buffalo. Buffalo Gap, Texas, it is. Hello, sir, and welcome.
CALLER: Yes. Greetings from a huge George Washington fan in Texas.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, very much.
CALLER: So I went up to Virginia this summer, and as I’m listening to the radio, all these stations are talking about Obama saying we’ve gotta have his back, we’ve gotta have his back. Obama’s campaign is counting on the ill-informed. And so it’s not unusual for Hollywood to give free advertising to progressives. Bain is just a fortuitous name for them. Just like the most recent Spider-Man movie when Sally Field is standing in the kitchen, what’s over her shoulder? A large union magnet on her refrigerator.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. In fact, Chuck Dixon, the creator, says, (paraphrasing) “I love all this. I just don’t like Rush calling me a liberal, I’m not a liberal,” but he says if this controversy makes ’em buy Batman paraphernalia and movie tickets, that’s fine. The Democrats clearly want people to go see this movie because they are hoping people make the connection to the evil villain Bane to the Bain Capital of Romney. No question. That’s what we’re up against. We have a struggle going on here, folks, between Romney’s Bain Capital and Obama’s Das Kapital. That’s the nature of the struggle. We have the struggle, this election is a struggle between Romney’s Bain Capital and Obama’s Das Kapital. That’s what’s going on.
