RUSH: Ryan in Illinois. I’m really glad you waited, sir. Welcome to Open Line Friday on Wednesday.

CALLER: Oh, my God. How you doing, Rush? It is an honor, an absolute privilege, and happy Thanksgiving to you, sir.

RUSH: Thank you very much. And ditto to you.

CALLER: Sorry about this. I had to hop out of my car because I can’t hang out in my car because there’s a camera, and it may be kind of windy, so I apologize. Can you hear me?

RUSH: Yeah. I hear fine. Look, I can’t hear anybody. I have to read what you’re saying. You just go ahead and talk.

CALLER: Okay. Give you a little background about me. I’m 26. I’m a male. I live in Illinois. I don’t want to give away exactly where I live because I’m afraid I might lose my job because Big Brother is always watching, so —

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. You would lose your job just for appearing on this program because of what you’re gonna say?

CALLER: I believe so. I personally believe so. May be not true, but I believe I could, yes, absolutely.

RUSH: Ah. This is East Germany.


RUSH: Caller’s afraid to be known.

CALLER: Yep. Hm-hm.

RUSH: Well, then you’re very brave, sir, to take the chance.

CALLER: Thank you, sir.

RUSH: You bet.

CALLER: Moving forward, the reason why I’m calling is actually because of my roommate. He’s a 28-year-old African-American who I’ve been living with now for two months. Before I jump into that, I’d like to start with my background. I’m a success story that you and I would both agree with. I grew up, obviously, in a middle class family, worked my way up. I play basketball, got a Division 1 scholarship, worked my butt off to graduate, took about a year and a half to get a real job and now working for that same job. I’m also a director of a basketball program as well. So I really moved my way up with my basketball job, and I’m just, you know, working my butt off to get where I am, so thank you, kudos to you for that.

RUSH: You know, in days past, in years past, your story would actually be inspirational and relevant, but a lot of people hearing you talk about it don’t know what you mean by work, and they can’t understand a year and a half to get what you want? My God. They’re thinking you maybe don’t get it. But continue with the story.

CALLER: Okay. Well, the real reason why I’m calling is because I deal with a lot of people of other races, African-American, Mexican, because I usually date women that are not white, and I go out with everybody, but I’ll listen to, you know, politics, and I’ll put my two cents in, and I definitely talk about what you talk about. But I have a feeling we’ve lost the women between 20 and 27 or 28, personally. I have not met a woman, besides one of my ex-girlfriends, that would not vote Obama, obviously. And no matter how I talk to them, it’s impossible. Now, I could be completely naive —

RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I’m really having trouble following this. You said we’ve lost the women between 20, 27, 28 but —


RUSH: — you have not met a woman who would not vote Obama. Okay, okay.

CALLER: Yes. Not vote Obama, personally. Now, I could be naive, you know, it could just be where I’m at, but it’s a reoccurring theme every single weekend.

RUSH: Every single weekend, every single woman that you date votes Obama?


RUSH: Have you tried dating a married woman?

CALLER: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. Yes. (laughing) No, I haven’t. No. Yeah, so I started rooming with my new roommate. He was very black oriented, you know, he always talked about Obama this, Obama that, which is fine, you know, I can deal with it. I can sit back there, but you know what, I didn’t sit back. I started chirping in his ear. Not aggressively, and I just started telling him how it really is. All the people I’ve talked to have never even heard of Benghazi, first of all. I had to explain about Benghazi to him. I had to explain Benghazi to all of his friends, nobody has an idea. They’re all on autopilot. Unbelievable. Nobody has any idea.

RUSH: Including the single women that you’re dating?


RUSH: They didn’t know about Benghazi?


RUSH: Doesn’t surprise me. It’s not being reported in the media that they watch. It really isn’t.


RUSH: In fact, Tom Friedman, New York Times, says it’s not even a story. It’s a distraction, not even a scandal. It’s not even a scandal, just a distraction.

CALLER: Yep. They’ve heard about Petraeus. They know about Petraeus over Benghazi, makes sense.

RUSH: Well, of course they know Petraeus, he dated his biographer. That’s cool.

CALLER: Yep. Yep. So getting back to my roommate, I’m chirping away in his ear about what’s going on with the politics, and he literally made me cry the day after the election. I’m a 26-year-old male, don’t get me wrong. I’m a male, I’m strong.

RUSH: Tell me, just cut to the chase, how did he make you cry? Why?

CALLER: He told me in front of all of his friends that he voted Romney. He told me, came out and said it.

RUSH: Oh, because you did get through to him?

CALLER: I got through to him, Rush. Unbelievable.

RUSH: That made you feel good, I’ll bet?

CALLER: That made me feel unbelievable.

RUSH: And it made you feel optimistic?

CALLER: It made me feel like our country is not lost, Rush.

RUSH: Long term, I don’t think it is. At the moment, we are outnumbered.


RUSH: But in the long term, we’re not.

CALLER: Yeah. So that’s really the reason why I called is because of him. He gave me the strength to call you up and have a reason to call you and say thank you so much for everything.

RUSH: Well, I’m glad that you got through. I really appreciate your patience in waiting. He’s been holding on since Monday, folks. We will be back after this. Don’t go away.


RUSH: You know, the Republicans do have a single women problem. This guy is right. And the polling data all shows it. Single women vote Democrat. They are insecure and government’s there for ’em, Obama and all that. I mean, it is what it is. Why is this? Snerdley, you’re not gonna like this. It’s because men just won’t commit to relationships. If men would marry them, these women would turn conservative. Well, some of them. Probably a majority of them would. It may be, to save the country, men are going to have to marry these women. You know, rather than the Republican Party run around, “Okay, well, you know we got our own brand of contraception, we got our own brand of pill here, try ours?” Instead of doing all that, just propose marriage and have a family and 2.8 kids and have the traditional nuclear security blanket. It may be something American men… we may have to call on ’em to save the country.
