Skip to comments.Our People Won't Stay Home

RUSH: Here's Michael in Columbia, South Carolina. I really appreciate your patience, too. Thank you for holding.
CALLER: Well, thank you. It's a pleasure and honor to have a chance to speak with you. I tell everyone I was on a conference call with 30 or 40 million people.
RUSH: (laughing) All right, cool.
CALLER: Snerdley helped me to condense my question. I'm really curious what your thoughts are on just how many conservatives you think so are really gonna be persuaded to stay home or will be influenced by polls. Most of us conservatives out here are smarter than that, you know? I mean, we're the vast majority of the population.
RUSH: I don't think it's going to work.
RUSH: I think -- if I may use this phrase "our people," I think -- our people are so revved up that there's not one bit of media fraud that can make 'em sit home.
RUSH: I think we're beating them in early voting. I think we're beating them in absentee. I think our people can't wait to show up. I'll tell you, there's another segment out there that nobody will ever poll, at least not the Gallups and the CNN's and the New York Times and all that. There are a lot of people out there who are not happy at all over the encroachment on their religious freedom. There are a lot of people who do not like Obama telling the Catholic Church where to go and to get off doing that and so forth.
They do not like that. They're never gonna be polled, but I will guarantee you (call 'em the Values Voters) they are sitting out there and they, too, want to vote. They are chomping at the bit waiting to get to the polls. So I don't think the suppression effort is going to work. However, the reason I spent time today addressing this and the reason I decided to is because there's genuine fear that others will sit home.
I hear from people, friends of mine. "Oh, gosh, Rush! Do you see this? I'm worried our people aren't gonna show up." Nobody is worried about themselves. Nobody tells me, "I've had it! I'm fed up. Screw Romney. Screw Ryan. Screw voting." Nobody's telling me that. They're still saying, "Screw Obama. To hell with Obama." But they're worried that people they don't know are gonna be affected by it and will sit home.
CALLER: Yeah. The only people that I know that really ask me about what I think about the polls are people that are not necessarily conservative for the most part. So they look at 'em and they kinda sorta wonder about 'em if they're believable or not. And I tell them, "No. It's all BS, and I think it's gonna be a landslide and I look forward to it." They look at me like I'm a little crazy and I say, "Hey, just wait."
RUSH: Well, they look at you like you're crazy because nobody's saying that. The landslide is Obama. I'm gonna tell you something.
CALLER: Well, I say that just to (garbled).
RUSH: On Obama's side right now, there's nobody... Although I'm gonna take that back. I was gonna say that I don't think the Obama people think they could possibly lose. I think the truth of the matter is they're worried. They're in Ohio. They're spending less time in Iowa. If they've got this wrapped up, why are they there? Why are they sending Obama out there? Why are they having him go on The View and Letterman and Jay-Z and blow off all these world leaders? I'll tell you what: The base that's unsettled is his. He's got the base-turnout problem, not us.
CALLER: Well, there are very dear friends of ours that are die-hard Democrats, and even they're -- I mean, it's a good sign that they're -- pretty much not voting for Obama this time. So I think there's some hope for even folks like that.
RUSH: Well, that's interesting. I hope there's a lot of that. People vote for all kinds of different reasons. Democrats vote for Democrats just because they're Democrats. There are a lot of people, I don't know what percentage, that don't look at this election the way I just described it. I look at this election as ball game for America as founded. Now, if Obama wins, the next day is not gonna be the gulags or anything like that. But I know the guy. I know what his plans are. I know what his intentions are.
I know liberals!
I know what happens when they're in charge of things economically. Look at New Orleans and Detroit. Take a look wherever they run things and there's no opposition. I just challenge you. Moscow, Beijing, Havana, go anywhere. You will not find the kind of prosperity that you are accustomed to in this country. They are just incapable of it. No, I don't think it's over forever if Obama wins, 'cause at some point the people of this country are as resilient as they could be.
If Obama wins, I guarantee you it isn't gonna be two years before a lot of people that vote for the guy are gonna wake up and they're gonna start asking themselves what they have done. I don't want to think about that in those terms down the road. Now, I need to correct this: Not all of us all of us are gonna end up in the gulags. There will be some who are targeted for the gulags shortly after the election. The regime has plans, I'm sure. But you're safe. You're safe.
I appreciate the call very much, Michael.
If Obama wins re-election, I wouldn’t bet any money that there will be a free election in 2016 to worry about at all.
Maybe there is, hell I expected that Romney would win anyway based on the economy. There’s no way in hell that Obama deserves to win, conservative discontent notwithstanding.
-But the media is covering up how bad the economy is, if Romney wins the media will suddenly discover we are in a depression.
-And Romney is a horrible candidate optically. I mean really GOP, a Wall Street guy? A WALL STREET GUY!?! Geez.
But maybe Romney can convince his GS and Banker buddies to throw a market crash in October in return for some wink-wink-nod-nod stuff.
And then we can all breathe a sigh of relief that the Republic is saved for all time.
If you were in Germany in 1933 and Romney had been running against Hitler wouldn’t you have voted for Romney knowing what we know now. I would suggest to you that the election that we are facing is that sort of election. When our national survival and our freedom is at stake we can’t be as picky as we would be otherwise.
Amen and B U M P
I’m not sure if we got a free election in 2012...
Winning nominees are definitely pre-vetted by TPTB.
At least they let us peons still argue about (some) social issues.
The first person that invokes Hitler is automatically the loser of the argument.
I would like to get a crack at you...communist!
HTF do you plan on getting to 2016???? Thank God you and those like you never got into WWII to draft up battle plans or I would be speaking Japanese right now....This 'effin commie take over is real, Einstein..and going on right here and now..and this election, you slow minded simpleton...and you, you freakin milktoast, are concerned because "Romney" ain't conservative enough for you????. Get off your self imposed morals and think about the survival of MY KID.
Eff' you, "Jeanious...Just eff you and your "I'll not vote".
I am not threatening you, but again, I would effin' DIE FOR A CRACK AT YOU...
Stay out of my fighting hole, long hair...I want to live until tomorrow....
It doesn’t matter if Thelma is driving the car at 100 MPH, or Louise is driving at a more sedate 80 MPH, the car is still going off the cliff.
The folks that spend so much time demanding that we violate our principles and vote for Louise for their sakes, would be better served preparing themselves and their loved ones for when the car DOES go off the cliff.
Wake the hell up yourself.
If ROMNEY(!) is your savior... YOU ALREADY LOST!
He will screw you over in a heartbeat. And you know it.
Yeah we’ll speak japanese, but I’d rather speak japanese THAN WILLINGLY VOTE FOR VIDKUN QUISLING!!!!
Normally that is the case but some of the similarities here are very eary and so I think the analogy is apropo. Similarities, (1) Hitler built a personality cult - Obama is building a personality cult. (2) Hitler controlled the media so that he could define truth - Obama is more and more controlling the media. (3) Hitler gradually subverted the German Constitution and illegally accumulated more and more power in his own hands - Obama is subverting the American constitution and accumulating more and more power in his hands. 4. Hitler did not respect the lives of the unborn and the infirm - Obama does not respect the lives of the unborn and infirm. 5. Hitler devided the people and turned them against certain groups (like the jews) that he scapegoated and blamed for Germany’s economic collapse - Obama is turning the poor against the middle class (which he calls the rich) and is blaming them for America’s economic problems. Obviously I don’t know his end game but the starting positions are earily similar.
cults - Romney is currently in and has contributed much $$$ to propagation of the same.
media - nothing has changed since Nixon in this regard.
The constitution died in 1933. No one bothered to tell you I guess.
So I guess Romney is now the savior of the aborted? News to many of them unfortunate enough to be conceived in MA.
Hitler was smart, evil, and had a great stump speech. Obama can sometimes give a decent stump and may be evil, but you know he’d rather be golfing.
Not voting or voting third party doesn’t “send a message”, sorry, but only actually changing the office holder sends a message.
The Fourth Estate is the Fifth Column.
Depends on who you are sending the message to.
Does the GOP elite actually need our vote? Do bears crap in the woods?
Maybe in 2016 they’ll listen to us.
I'll second that. And it's the Third Rail to talk about it in public.
A good candidate “optically”? Now, what the hell does that
mean? We had NO “optically” good conservatve candidate.
They were all either posers or GOP lite ala Romney.
Wall Street? I’m not so sure that Romney fits that category.
He is a businessman. If you are going to hire a person to
help put money in your pocket do you want a community
organizer or a businessman (even from Wall St) on your
True. But I do anyway. (Clever with the second and third)
You must have the sixth sense!
We won't make it 2016 with another 4 years of Obama.
Obama wins the November election. Republicans strengthen their positions in the House and Senate setting up gridlock. The media has two years to blame Republicans for everything down to toenail fungus.
The zombies, a.k.a. American electorate, get tired and bounce the Republicans out of the House and Senate.
Obama has the final two years of his lame duck presidency to completely destroy what is left of America.
