Rush Limbaugh: 'We’re Doomed' If Obama Re-elected
Newsmax ^ | September 26, 2012

Posted on 09/27/2012 5:31:59 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Radio host Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy. And now, a few short months before the November elections, Limbaugh is predicting a disaster scenario for America if Barack Obama is re-elected. He went so far as to say that if President Obama is voted into office for another term, the national economy is in serious trouble.

“We’re doomed,” Limbaugh recently said on his talk show.

“If Obama’s re-elected, it will happen. There’s no if about this. And it’s gonna be ugly. It’s gonna be gut-wrenching, but it will happen. The country’s economy is going to collapse if Obama is re-elected. I don’t know how long: a year and a half, two years, three years.”

Limbaugh thinks California will collapse first, setting off a disastrous chain of events.

“California is going to declare bankruptcy, and you know what Obama will do? He’ll go to states like Texas or Arizona, Florida to bail them out. That’s what he’ll do, and that’s gonna precipitate this stuff. California is showing where we’re headed in every which way,” Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh continued his attack on the president’s policies, stating, “We’re on an unsustainable course. You simply can’t pay people who aren’t working. You just can’t. You cannot pay them anything, much less full-fledged incomes, lifetime healthcare and lifetime pensions. You can’t do it. Even if you wanted to, even if that was your definition of fairness and equality, you can’t do it. The money isn’t there.”

Limbaugh also said he hoped he was wrong about his prediction....

I am afraid the country may be doomed even if he isn’t re-elected.

Obama has pretty much destroyed what was once a great nation. I don’t think I would want to follow him in office.

If Obama wins the only way back for the economy is a world war.

go after the NYS govt workers first.......they retire in grand style, early, with medical for them and their spouses, forever, and they don't pay state tax.....

but I'm so harsh....afterall, these people "deserve" it because it was "promised" to them and they all worked at those "low" wages and the pension and medical makes up for it, right?......

I think that an economic crisis would be a good thing in the long run. We nearly had a total meltdown in 2008 but we panicked and squandered the opportunity to let the thing fail and then reform the system. But that just means we’ll get an even bigger correction in the future. Heck, T-bill was downgraded again, and I think that most would agree that even at AA- it’s still over valued. California is broke, and they still won’t allow offshore drilling in proven oil and gas fields with easily accessible oil. A collapse will simply mean a chance to take back the government and adults will be in charge again. It will suck for awhile, but we’ll win the day. Don’t fear the coming crisis, friends. It’s 90% gold for us.

Obama is an enemy of America. He sat under Reverend Wright for twenty years who preached “God Damn America.” I believe Obama wants the U.N. Agenda 21 implemented just as fast as possible and probably wants to angle for a top position in whatever New World Order emerges from the collapse of America.

I’ve been writing TEOTWAWKI survival books the last two years. There are a lot of variables so maybe we muddle through, but the economic graphs I dig up as research just don’t show a lot of optimism even if Romney sneaks in. You have to cut $1.5 trillion per year in gov spending - ain’t gonna happen. The Fed QE3 just topped off the whole mess.

Try not to be bitter about people (i.e., state workers); the problem is the system. It's the same with illegal aliens. If I lived in Mexico, I'd do whatever it took to get to the USA, including hiding in a truck and living here illegally. I believe, however, we need to tighten our borders and end illegal immigration. You can believe laws and systems should be changed without becoming bitter towards those who benefit from those laws and flawed systems. Liberals want to make all of this personal, when it's just an objective truth that the current state of affairs is unsustainable.

We’re doomed not because Obama is re-elected....we’re doomed because anyone with such an awful record as Obama’s should have no chance of getting re-elected. He’s truly the worst president ever...worse than Carter. Carter was just an inept fool. Obama is a leftist menace. His re-election would mean we’ve more imbeciles than adults, and we’ve finally turned the corner to a complete socialist state.

He should’ve never been able to become a state senator, much less a US senator or president. I have more foreign policy, business and military experience than Mr. Obama and I would never even consider running for city council. How presumptuous do you have to be to think you're qualified to run the world's only superpower with no real experience?

America is doomed anyway; it will just be a bit slower if Romney wins, but doomed it is.

The only thing that could bring America back to a Constitutional government is drawing blood, and todays Americans are too fat, stupid, lazy, greedy, and cowardly for that.

‘I got’s my Obama money’ - ‘Obama gave me a cell phone’ - ‘Where my foodstamps’ - ‘Who gon’na pay my bills’
No class, no dignity, no honor, no self-respect; doomed we are.

The potential of the Muslim threat in the Philippines is very limited. The UK and France probably have a higher proportion of Muslims than the Philippines, and their Muslim populations are more widespread. In the Philippines they are very concentrated.

A bomb here and there, thats all.
No real war, even in the worst case fighting would be limited to a single small region in the far south.
And the force ratios are 95-5 against the Muslims.

Carter was just an inept fool.

I thought that for years too, but after observing Clinton's foreign policy and Zero's, Carter was also deliberately destroying the U.S. Although giving the Panama Canal away was pretty darn stupid as well as destructive.

So true, DL2. It's so maddening to read every day that this total idiot is still even in contention - if there was any sanity, Obama would be polling about 25-30% .... How the hell does he stay above 40%?

Are there really that many blacks, homosexuals, gullible women, and leftist dreamers?? Or is the whole media-complex lying??

Rush says it’s going to be a landslide for Romney, and says, “don’t doubt me”. Today he talked about the polls with the bad sample #’s. unskewed polls.com has Romney up by double digits. Romney’s no panacea, but the revolutions down the toilet will slow down. My hope is that we win big in the Senate, and House, in the vision of the Tea Party, and they will put Conservative Legislation in front of him and he’ll have to sign it...just like he did with the liberals in Massachusetts. Mittens can go down as one of the greatest Presidents in American History if all that happens. All he’ll have to do is sign legislation.

I disagree. Carter was a liberal tool who wasn’t deliberately trying to destroy the U.S. A lot of famous conservatives like W. F. Buckley also supported giving it away. Carter was just way in over his head. Obama is a different breed of cat. He’s a real leftist who would like a radically different U.S.

I wish we could blame it on Obama, but the truth is that Obama didn't destroy this country; it was on its way to hell long before he got to office. He's just hammering the final nails into the coffin. The fact that a commie hustler like him could even get voted in was a sign that we were already done. The fact that complete idiots like Pelosi, Reid, Frank, etc. could get in office was a sign that we were done. And, if you've talked to any people in the 18-30 year-old range these days, you'll be shocked to see how much of the left-wing agenda they've absorbed and internalized. Heck, I'm constantly shocked at how much left-wing BS some FREEPERS have internalized. The seeds of this country's destruction were sown long before Barack Obama was even old enough to give his first BJ.

It is the media almost totally.

I no longer watch the network news because it just makes me mad. I did watch it this afternoon. The reason was as I was scanning the channels I happened to notice CBS was having a segment on Bonnie and Clyde’s guns.

When they gave the Democrat and Republican views on the election, they started with the Democrats. Not only was the Democrat side given several times more exposure, they began with: “the Democrats believe”.

When they got to the Republican side they said: “the Republicans say”.

The difference sounds slight, one “believes” and the other “says”. It gives a completely slanted view.

Rush is a billionaire?? REALLY? I thought he was worth a 100 million or so, but a billionaire?! WOW! I would think he would fork over some bucks and form some type of PAC and make some outstanding political ad. WHAT he gotta lose? If America goes down in flames so shall Rush and his billions...The black turd's govt will see to it that we and he will never have free speech again.... We are literally witnessing the beginning of the PC birthing pains of limited free speech as it enfolds before our eyes by the arrest of the film director who made the moHEMmed movie! Be afraid RUSH, BE VERY AFRAID...as our freedoms go so does your bank account and freedom radio waves!

Exactly. Carter was a peanut farming left wing populist - who I am sure loved his country.

Obama hates this country. His flexibility will be apparent starting on Nov 7th. God help us.

In the past this kind of talk would have rightfully been regarded as silly and over the top. Now....I agree with it. I am not sure we will fully collapse, but I know Obama’s policies will intentionally push us past the tipping point to where so many people are dependent it will be near impossible to elect responsible politicians, and the few who manage to get through will find it impossible to cut anything.

I think u r on to something. We have already passed the point of no return.
Even if Romney is elected, how will that help if the Rats still hold the senate? Congress already has shown it is incapable of solving the debt.
What outcome does that leave? A collapse. Why do u think the civilian
Govt is buying millions of rounds of fire power?
They know what’s coming. Most Americans do not.
Decades of deal making from both sides has brought us to the brink.
These hacks past and present, will live in relative comfort when the collapse comes. While the rest of us dumpster dive to survive.

Nicaragua, in spite of a dictator-for-life Ortega - is one of the safest of all South/Central American countries due to cultural practices - e.g., never break into someone’s home if someone is there.

The people are warm and friendly in general. Of course, there are places gringos should never go near, but that is true in many nations.

Many Americans have been moving there and/or purchasing property there. The collapse of ‘08 put a big dent in a lot of it, but it’s still happening....and land is still relatively cheap there. If you have a couple hundred grand to put in property, and a couple thou a month income you can live well......

I too listen to Rush almost every day and have done so since
1985 when he was first at KFBK in Sacto. If Rush thinks the US
is doomed then before you, me and a considerable number
of others ponder pulling up stakes I would sure like to see
him make the Sunday talk show circuit and give them hell.
He doesn’t like to do that sort of thing but if he truly thinks
we are doomed then he needs to get off his ass and get busy.
