"Okay, what I really want, Rush, for our side is to have somebody in the Oval Office who is gonna be a street fighter for us, not the class president; and that's why I have a problem with Romney in addition to not being sure of how conservative he really is. He has all the right answers, he has all the politics down, but does he really understand how angry and upset -- as you have so well articulated over the last couple of years, how mad -- we really are and how much we've yearned for action to turn this ship of state around?" -- a caller to the Rush Limbaugh program on Thursday
