I listened to this caller, it was great. All I could think of, was Rush saying "winning over one voter at a time." The caller was obviously a thinker. I believe that a person should make quick decisions, and be very slow to change. This callers change, seemed well thought out and very genuine, to me. It was great that
Rush gave him a Ipad. Not that the caller deserved a reward for his decision, just that Rush was just so blown away and overjoyed, that he just had to express it.
The WOT will go on as long as the jihadis bring it on. Our objective: to defeat those who would destroy us. That's not going to be easy, but it is very simple and necessary.
It's good to see Rush reconnecting to working people. I'm still doubtful of Gingrich, but the cause of ABO is far more important than any one candidate. ABO America, ABO!
Dang. I'm a black republican (from Chicago of all places) who didn't support BHO even when he ran for the Senate. I should have called in to Rush, too; I would have loved to have gotten a free iPad... but I'm holding off for the iPad 3 anyway. ;-)
Hang in there Dennis, if not before, by January 2013 with a new Republican President the Keystone Pipeline will be back on line.
It's great to hear people wake up finally, especially enslaved black American’s. I love hearing epiphanies like this. Hello and thank you for joining the thinking class Dennis.
I honestly think it's going to be up to Hispanics like Rubio and blacks like West and this caller who are going to be the ones to turn this country around. Too many whites have this weird soft bigotry coupled with their downright evil ideology that only looks good on the surface but has literally destroyed black communities and kept many people of color in a perpetual cycle of poverty. Like the great Thomas Sowell said "When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear." That last part is what the Democrat party has always been. And there's a pantload of money and lifetime job security in it.
AnnR, in the past, many whites were undeniably racist, especially here in the south. My ancestors were southerners, deep south southerners, but I can tell you unequivocably, that in the 1960s the vast, vast majority of middle class whites were simply bewildered by the violence against blacks, both official and unofficial. It's also true that middle class whites of that era and place didn't really understand how difficult life was for black people, and that is something we thank the civil rights leaders for even to this day. But the past IS still the past. Our direction is what's really important. Remember too, if you're religious that St. Paul was once Saul of Taursis, the feared Christian hating persecutor of Christ. The Lord temporarily blinded Saul, that he might see the truth, and so that Paul could preach that truth to millions of theretofore lost and blind souls.
WOW Dennis, just WOW.. You have stood your ground and have spoken the TRUTH! in all honesty you could influence a lot of people with what you have said. Just Imagine how many minds you have and could change just by these statements. I am proud to say that I am a 48 year old white woman who holds no judgement against any Blacks and I never have, and you have proven to me that all HOPE may not be LOST when it comes to Our Country. God Bless you for standing up for your Family and coming to Realize that Obama being Black has nothing to do with Him being President rather it having to do with him DESTROYING us as a NATION.
I hope this is a turning point. He was forced to choose between enviro-kooks and other member groups of the Democrat coalition. He choose the enviro-kooks because they have more sway in terms of campaign contributions (Hollywood types). Let's all hope this bites him in the ass.
Good for you grenadiadrian, welcome to the side that thinks. Democrats/Liberals don't look at history, facts, or use simple common sense, and here is how I know this. Republicans fought Democrats to free the slaves! If the black culture in this country knows this why do they predominantly support Democrats, the party of slavery? Many blacks also believe their hero M.L.K. was a Democrat also, he was a Republican. If people are so lazy they don't even desire to know the truth they will choose Democrat every time. The Democrat party is the party of slavery, for all skin colors. They want every American dependent upon the federal government for their survival. This way they secure power for eternity, making us all their slaves.
Amen, Jaynie. I don't CARE what brought you over to the side of light, truth and decency. I'm just GLAD YOU'RE HERE, and honored to have you on my side. Screw the negative ninnies.
God Bless you, grenadiadrian. Welcome aboard, and THANK YOU! We need everyone we can get to turn this country around, and I'm proud to call you my brother.
Damn, wish I would've tuned in today. Sounds like it was a really good show from the couple of clips you posted.
The best, and most revealing part of the phone call is near the very end...and although it is worthy of discussion, it does not make for good radio, but does expose how the Democrat party works.
Caller: -I was angry at white people
I'm paraphrasing- but it opens up the can of worms on the Democrat Party. They work on fostering racism and creating victims to empower themselves politically....truly evil.
I had to laugh when I heard Rush's reaction to Mitch Daniels giving the rebuttal for tomorrow night. He's my governor & I like him - a lot. But... he's a policy-guy through & through. There is no pizzazz with My Man Mitch. He's on the right side of issues, but style - he ain't got it. Anyway - welcome to the light Dennis! We're glad to have you!
This is a case of Obama over-doing it with his loyalty to OPEC.
They say the devil always over-plays his hand and people finally wake up.
This man's change shows that people really can come to change through thinking of things in a common sense way. He took a while, but if enough people hear common sense for a long enough time, they can "come to the light". Welcome Dennis.
I'm not impressed. Nevermind the fact that the democratic party is one founded on racism, murder, terrorism, treason, abduction, oppression and slavery; he "abandons" Obama over the Keystone Pipeline. While its an important issue, to be sure, but that looks more like a personal issue, to me, and just because he's abandoned Obama and claims he might not support his party, anymore, he's still a liberal, chances are. Joe Lieberman is no longer in the liberal socialist democratic party, either, and supports the Global War on Terror. However, make no mistake, he's still just as big a leftist as he's always been, and still just as bad for America, as ever. Now, instead of "D" behind his name, there's an "I". See any difference?
VirusX, please consider that whether a person is a conservative or not, it's really the DIRECTION of a person's opinion and views more than his or her past affinities that really counts. Both Romney and Newt can be defended for their direction, if they can't be praised so highly for their respective pasts. I encourage you to think of this man as one who may have experienced a "Saul of Taursis" moment. "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" While I agree with your historical observations of the Democrat Party, we all must claim spiritual progress rather than spiritual perfection.
Remember that Reagan was a life time Democrat that saw the light to become one of the strongest conservatives since the earlly 1900's. I myself was a brainwashed liberal when I was in my teens and twenties, going through the cult of a university education.
Sometimes it takes a lot of reality to turn someone from fantasy land. Thank goodness for Newt preaching the truth.
Take the negativity somewhere else, jackass. Attitudes like yours help keep minority folks away from conservative ideas and policy proposals. Welcome him aboard and rejoice that we have a new brother at our side.
Patience, VirusX, patience. He's had the same mindset for 48 years and just began to digest new thoughts, new vision for 3 weeks. Quite honestly, the Establishment Republican party hasn't exactly been on the right track for awhile either, so he's been a man without a country, so to speak. Once his wheels start turning and he starts to take it apart & put it back together, he'll start looking at other things differently too. I'm pleased to hear that he's on the right track and is beginning to question all the things he's been taught and conditioned to over the past 48 years. Faith, hope, & love is what we need brother!
Wow, grenadiadrian this bears repeating (SO TRUE!):
"Then I look at the policies and the living conditions of Democratic stronghold states and cities and realized that instead of being the party for the little guy, they're the party that CREATES the little guy."
That should be on a poster. Maybe you should post this @ www.Newt.org.
A wise man.
I guess being on the road and listening, really thinking deeply and caring about his family caused him to correct his course.
He's thinking like an American husband, father, citizen now, not as an African-American partisan.
Note also, he has outgrown and set aside his grudge against whites.
Welcome to the 100%, Dennis!
Here is an article by a former liberal who knew Obama back in the day:
Young Marxist Islamist Obama - http://www.americanthinker.com...
Note that Obama was being squired around by a rich radical US-hating Pakistani.
Good for him , I hope he tells all his friends and family who are Obama supporters NOT to vote for him.
hope he joins http://blackgop.ning.com/
Say "Amen!" somebody.
Fuel costs and taxes ripple throughout the economy driving the prices of everything up or down.
If we reduce the cost of fuel or taxes or both our economy will become more competitive with the world.
An IPad is a great office tool for a trucker to receive. This should save him lots of money and time.
I live near Charlotte
I am hearing more of this type of sentiment on the local station from locals
I pray that America is waking up to this phony Obama
Maybe real Hope and Change is coming !
