RUSH: We’re gonna start with Rebecca, who’s 18, she’s in Gainesville, Florida. Hi, Rebecca. I’m glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you. It’s an honor to speak to you, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you. Thank you very much.
CALLER: I was listening to the debate on Tuesday, and afterwards I was watching Fox, and a focus group came up, and one of the ladies said an interesting point. She said her undecided vote wasn’t between voting for Obama and Romney; it was between voting for Romney or not voting at all.
RUSH: Yeah, I saw that.
CALLER: And it’s kind of scary, but I don’t know what to think about it, ’cause at my college, I’ve had some people who kind of have the same opinion.
RUSH: You are very shrewd, Rebecca. I, too, was a little surprised by that, because it’s hard for me to conceive of somebody sitting this election out. Isn’t that what struck you, that her option was either Romney or not voting?
RUSH: What is that?
RUSH: But anyway, she did say — correct me if I’m wrong — she did say that the debate had convinced her to vote for Romney, right?
CALLER: That’s good, I would say. That would show that Romney earned it.
RUSH: Yeah, but she did say that before the debate, she was either not voting or voting for Romney. That was the nature of her being undecided, and then she said after the debate, in this focus group, it was the Luntz group, that she decided to vote for Romney. But I’m like you. I was shocked that one of her possibilities was not voting.
CALLER: Yes. This is my first election. I’m voting.
RUSH: Thank you. Thank you. Vote three or four times. It’s Florida. You’re a student. They’ll think you’re voting for Obama. They’ll let you in there as many times as you can get in. Just kidding.
RUSH: Just kidding, folks, just having fun with the caller here. You’re very shrewd to pick up on that, and I’m glad that you called and reminded me, because — by the way, you’re a student. Do you have everything you need? Do you have an iPad?
CALLER: No. Actually, my mom does, but I don’t have one. I thought about buying it.
RUSH: Would your mom be upset if I gave you one?
CALLER: I don’t think so.
RUSH: Let’s try it.
RUSH: If she gets upset, you can always send it back.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: That won’t happen. Hang on, Rebecca, and Mr. Snerdley will get your address and we’ll FedEx you an iPad and you’ll have it tomorrow.
RUSH: Very simply put, ladies and gentlemen, not voting is a vote for Obama. Same thing. If you’re not planning on voting, you may as well be saying you’re voting for Obama. It’s no more complicated than that.
Obama is on his way now to New York City for his sixth appearance on The Daily Show. Nope. Nope. Gonna be on The Daily Show, taping an appearance on The Daily Show. This is the Jon Stewart show. And then he’s heading over to the Al Smith Dinner that the archbishop holds at the Waldorf “Hysteria.” I was frankly kind of surprised they invited him. It’s Catholics, and Obama’s undermining their religious freedom, and they’re gonna invite him, gonna be polite to him, they always are. Candidates show up there with their comedy routines.
