WHY OBAMA LOST! RUSH LIMBAUGH OPERATION CHAOS! TRANSCRIPT OF CALL


here is the transcript of the phone call.


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: We have an Operation Chaos volunteer on the phone from Exton,
Pennsylvania, by the name of Bill. Bill, you're doing the Lord's work
out there. Thanks for the call. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. Yeah, we went to vote for Hillary. I was a
gun-toting evangelical clinging to those guns and clinging to my God.
I went out and voted. They asked me on the way out, the pollsters
asked me, "Oh, were you one of the people who switched parties?" I
said, "Yeah, I switched parties." "So why did you do that?" I said,
"Because of Operation Chaosssss."

RUSH: All right!

CALLER: And then they went and they said, "Okay, what are the issues?
Were they Iraq, global warming?" "No," I said. "No, it's because of
Operation Chaos, led by the commander-in-chief, Rush," and she just
laughed. She laughed her head off. Then I went over to the Hillary
table and I was there with my Republican committeeman, which he's on
board with Operation Chaos as well, and I said, "I voted for Hillary,"
and she said, "Oh, thank you very much. Thank you very much." "But," I
said, "Tomorrow, I'll be reregistering Republican," and she just
laughed. It was just a classic moment.

RUSH: That's all they care about is the now anyway. You know,
they'll deal with the general later. They just care about the now.
They're so happy you did it. I know the Clinton campaign's grateful
as they can be for Operation Chaos. They can't ever say so, but
they're grateful as hell.

CALLER: It was awesome.

RUSH: So you had an exit pollster, it was an exit pollster, and they
asked you if you're a switcher --

CALLER: Yes.

RUSH: -- and which issues mattered, and when you said Operation
Chaos, Rush Limbaugh, commander-in-chief?

CALLER: She just laughed and laughed. I said, "We want to keep this
going through the convention," and she just laughed. They were young
kids. They didn't really know until that day that it was in effect,
but this Republican Chester County. There were quite a few there.

RUSH: Couple more questions. You say they were young. How old were
these exit pollsters?

CALLER: 18, 20.

RUSH: Don't be so convinced that they don't know about Operation Chaos.

CALLER: Oh, no. They knew about it because they'd heard about it that
day, I'm pretty sure. They didn't say that.

RUSH: Okay, so they laughed about it. So they must be hearing this a
lot.

CALLER: Oh, yes. I'm saying, there was before -- I got there around
11 o'clock, and there was about 150 people already voted. But that's
a lot because we're in a Republican county, and they were just
laughing. Especially when I said, "Well, we're there to make sure the
Dems keep fighting it out 'til they go to the convention."

RUSH: Way to go. Well, there you have it. There's Bill from Exton,
Pennsylvania, one of the hundreds of thousands of volunteers in
Operation Chaos scattered across remaining primary states. He was
happy to be in Pennsylvania today voting as an Operation Chaos
operative, following, by the way, to the T orders from headquarters.
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: York, Pennsylvania. Tim, I'm glad you called. An Operation
Chaos volunteer on the phone. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Mega bitter Pennsylvanian dittos.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: I have two reports, actually. One report from Saturday. I
waited nearly all day for the live campaign representative to call me
from the Hillary campaign, and finally the call came in.

RUSH: Wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait. Why did you know that a call
was coming? Why were you waiting for a phone call?

CALLER: Oh, I have never received so many phone calls. I thought I
was on the Do Not Call list, but I'm not sure now.

RUSH: Wait a minute. I want to set the stage here so people
understand. You're a Republican, Operation Chaos volunteer, and you
registered Democrat to vote for Hillary?

CALLER: Yes. And finally that registration went through.
Unfortunately, it didn't for my wife. She remained Republican,
although she had tried. She did a mail-in and it didn't work.

RUSH: Yeah, there was a deadline. There was a deadline.

CALLER: Yep. But I did. I succeeded in becoming an operative, and I
succeeded in getting the live phone call on Saturday, and the
gentleman, very politely asked me, you know, if I was going to show my
support for Hillary, go out and vote. I said, "Oh, absolutely. I
wouldn't miss it," and he started thanking me, and I said, "Sure, I'm
an operative for Operation Chaos." He was laughing so hard, he could
barely say, "Thank you for your support," and hang up.

RUSH: They know. You know damn well he know. Despite the Drive-Bys
trying to make it look like it's insignificant, ineffective, it isn't
happening, they know. The exit pollsters today are laughing when
Operation Chaos volunteers tell 'em they're operating with Operation
Chaos orders.

CALLER: Well, the second report is from the polling station. I
haven't been able to go over yet. I'm just chomping at the bit, but
my wife was by earlier, and like I said, she voted Republican today
for a couple of local things, and she reported that in-line campaign
representatives were going down through with a notebook and just
taking notes, asking people if they were part of Operation Chaos.

RUSH: (laughs) No kidding.

CALLER: They weren't throwing their bodies down in front of people
telling them they couldn't vote, but they were taking notes. Not
taking names, but seemed to be taking notes of what the responses
were. I don't know what they're preparing for, but --

RUSH: Now, let me ask you specifically: Were these campaign workers
or were these pollsters?

CALLER: Well, they were probably -- no, no. They would have been
pollsters, you know, outside the campaign building.

RUSH: Okay.

CALLER: Outside the whole building.

RUSH: Before you'd gotten in there where where's no electioneering
involved, before you got in there, before your wife got in there and
got in line to vote. This is outside --

CALLER: Outside.

RUSH: -- before she's gone up and signed up, signed in -- and
operatives, campaign operatives, pollsters want to know how many
people are with Operation Chaos?

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: (laughter)

CALLER: There were several of my neighbors there that I know are
Republican that were just kind of smiling, you know, giving the thumbs
up to my wife. (laughing) You know, to believe that it's not a force
to be reckoned with, I can't wait 'til tomorrow when I switch back. I
really can't, because I've been getting these cravings for tofu. I
stopped by and looked at the new Priuses. It's making me sick.

RUSH: Yeah, you can't hang onto this too long because --

CALLER: No.

RUSH: -- of the addictive forces that can overcome you.

CALLER: It's mentally straining, I tell you. (laughs)

RUSH: Well, they're actually asking people in line -- both
Republicans and Democrats, by the way?

CALLER: Oh, yeah, yeah.

RUSH: If you're a part of Operation Chaos?

CALLER: Just going down through the line.

RUSH: "Are you Operation Chaos?" All right, that's great news.
Well, you're going to go reregister tomorrow, and probably a lot
others are too. A lot of others will too but that story will never be
written, about the shrinking Democrat voter registration.

CALLER: I know, I know.

RUSH: (laughter.)

CALLER: I just want to get it over with as quickly as possible and am
trying to make an impact.

RUSH: How come you haven't voted yet?

CALLER: I work. I'm a Republican. I'm busy working.

RUSH: Right. Well, don't --

CALLER: I'm hoping I can get through at the end of the day.

RUSH: No, no. There's no hoping in Operation Chaos.

CALLER: (laughs)

RUSH: Our mission relies not at all on hope. You've got to get in
there and vote. Those are your orders!

CALLER: I will get in there and vote.

RUSH: All right. That's the only reason to switch party registration.

CALLER: Oh, believe me; I wouldn't miss it for the world.

RUSH: Tim, thanks for the call.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush.

RUSH: We really appreciate it.

1. This makes sense. She only started winning after the republican process ended.

27. Yes. I mean her numbers went up after McCain got nomination. Before that, Obama won states by 30%.

3. Nice try. But the data has consistently shown this argument to be false.
Obama people cling to this notion that Barack inspired the American people the way he did them in order to win over the swing voters and beat Clinton. This is nonsense. Barack tried to do that in 2007 and failed. So instead he turned to a hateful campaign of personal destruction to redefine Hillary Clinton as a human being.

19. I confess, I read your post two times, and neither time did it make
a lick of sense. I'll guess that you are comparing the Operation Chaos thing with Obama's claim to be getting swing voters? If so you are missing the point entirely. Chaos voters aren't swing voters and will never vote Democrat (except this time, to help Hillary screw the Dem Party). They are flying monkeys with brown shirts and they are helping your gal fuck this process up worse.

34. That isn't what I was saying at all. I had two distinct points:
1) I dispute the relevance of "operation chaos." And it was Obama who advertized on Rush Limbaugh, for the record.

2) On a seperate, but related, point I don't believe Obama go where he is by inspiring people. He inspired his hard-core base, but that's it. He has won by tearing her apart on a personal level.

23. WTF??????
Barack "turned to a hateful campaign of personal destruction to redefine Hillary Clinton as a human being." ?????

I have had some bad thoughts about Hillary, I admit. But I have always considered her a human being.
You should be thanking Barack for redefining her as one.


WTF???

5. I honestly think there needs to be a law against this
Or the existing statutes need to be enforced.

THIS is why caucuses are useful. You can't affect a caucus with this kind of BS.

33. It's all about the publicity.
His goal is not to have Clinton win the nomination, it's about causing chaos in the Democratic party. It's about invading the party to cause confusion and lack of clarity as to who is getting what votes. By spreading the message of his Operation Chaos, you promote it. I read about this last night on a site that ridicules DU. It became crystal clear to me what this operation is all about and gave me some clarity as to why some RW sources are promoting others to cross over and vote for Obama.

That's the f.

37. Scarborough, Coulter, etc.
One of the guys last night was spinning RIGHT AFTER her speech... saying how "positive" it was and how she didn't say anything negative at all... which was utter bullshit. Thank GOD Olbermann was there to point out that actually she had taken a few potshots at his campaign.

40. I don't support RW media or most of the MSM
I do this by not watching them. I've read some of the stories about Coulter and I think she is playing the same game as Limbaugh. I honestly don't give a damn about Scarborough and couldn't pick him out of a lineup. Couldn't pick Olbermann out of one either, for that matter.

They are all playing us, even the ones who say what you want to hear. That's my opinion. I won't lend them a hand in doing it.

I have a bit more trust in the pundits on publicly supported sources. The one conservative pundit that confuses me is David Brooks. He does come across as being quite positive about Clinton and I am not at all clear on what his motives may be.

They have to sign an affirmation as to the truth on their application to register to vote.

9. Of course this has an impact. The media underplays its importance.
This isn't just a few Rush Limbaugh fans doing this. There are millions of Republican voters with nobody to vote for- of course they are voting for Clinton. They want to win in November! It's not just a "mind game". They are doing it and bragging about it for crying out loud!

The right desperately wants to run against Clinton.

29. Yes but what you leave out is that before Texas...
Obama was winning more of the Republican vote... only after the start of "Operation fatboy" was their a spike in the amount of Republicans voting...with most of the new votes going to Clinton... thus making Obama's win of Republicans much smaller.

21. It's naive to think that some of Clinton's votes DON'T come from dittoheads
There was a post yesterday about an entire PA repub family doing exactly that, and planning proudly to switch back over and put their true support back behind McCain for the GE.

That's the difference between repubs voting for Clinton and Obama - Obama's getting the people who are true crossovers who plan to stick with him in the GE; Hillary is getting the ones who want to pit her against McCain because that gives McCain the better chance. Rush dittoheads do not WANT Obama in the GE.

The M$M doesn't report it for the same reason they try to give Clinton every perceived boost...they don't want HER, they want her to run against McCain. They see what kind of grassroots support Obama generates, and they don't want to fight that. They want the establishment, the status quo, in place.

28. I have a question . . .
. . . If someone changes their registration from Democrat to Republican for whatever reason, can they change it back before the general election? I guess it doesn't really matter, since it won't effect their vote in the general. They'll still be able to vote for McCain regardless of party affiliation. That's not right. There should be some lasting negative ramification for switching parties under false pretenses.

32. I'm speechless.
I'm livid. It's un-fucking-believable. I don't know what to say. :shrug:

Is there any way to track how many people call in and switch their party back to R?

38. It might be interesting to compare primary-general vote totals...
...for Clinton is she runs against McCain.

What are the chances she has substantially lower Democratic vote totals in these states after the Republicans switch back? My guess is that the chances are very good.

39. OMG, I've never heard such a solicitation for filler!
No wonder this guy can fill a 3 hour yap program every day! He has the callers fill his time by saying the same thing 8 or 9 different ways!

I gotta hand it to him, it fills the period between hair tonic commercials.

48. Anyone Have an Estimate of How Many Votes
Operation Chaos was responsible for? Just wondering if it could have been a major factor.

51. Hillary is triangulating with the GOP against Barack.
That's surreal in a :puke: kind of way.
