CALLER: Hey, Rush, I wanted to talk to the mayor of Realville about something you said almost a year ago to the day that I’ve never forgotten.
CALLER: I always turn to you after elections because I need to get your take on what happens, whether we win big or we lose. And the day after the election, I want you to jog your memory. You spoke of something I’ve never forgotten. You said that it’s gonna take events to change what’s going on in America. And we are seeing those events go on right now.
RUSH: That’s right.
CALLER: Could you elaborate that —
RUSH: Yeah, because I remember exactly. My point was that there was no longer anything anybody could say —
RUSH: — to Obama voters to change their minds. We’re talked out. We’ve told everybody before it happened what was gonna happen, and we were right. We warned everybody. We’ve told the truth, and they choose not to believe it or not to see it or what have you. So I said, given that, folks, just be patient, because the only thing now that is going to actively change public opinion in a big way is actual events, which we can’t predict. We don’t know what events are gonna happen. But if anything is gonna cause there to be a reduction in support for Obama, it’s going to be events. And so you’re saying that you get to keep your doctor, that lie, and your premiums are gonna be reduced $2,500, and that the Obamacare rollout itself is an event now that you think I was using as an example.
RUSH: “We now have to be patient.” This is a year ago I said this. “Only events are going to upset the current status quo.” I said, “At some point [people] are gonna see that there is a better life. It’s always happened, it’s a cyclical thing, and I don’t know when it’s gonna happen, but events will happen that will cause Republicans to win again,” even in spite of themselves. “But it will be the events, and it will be the decline due to these big government policies that leads to the Republican victory,” the next Democrat loss.
