Just Wow. For those that were listening, it was one of the most facinating exchanges between a listener and Rush Limbaugh. Rush was speaking to an out-of-work grandmother who loves Pittsburg, and used to live there when Rush was working at a local radio station. She said that she couldn't afford the trip up, and was nearly indigent, and Rush is going to get her and her son a hotel room, a ride from their home in FL to Tampa for the Super Bowl.
Between hearing "the hutch", and the profound gratitude of this grandmother, Rush's generosity and humility really made this one of his best shows ever....
....sniff... I love a happy ending
Rush does more for those in need in two minutes than Bambi has done in two weeks.
Are you nuts? Obama is going to pay everyone’s mortgage and put gas in everyone’s car (with your money)!
All hail, Obama!
That really choked me up. What a sweetheart!
Listening made me tear up. She was so stunned...just appreciative that he would even try. Really a nice moment.
I think Rush wound up giving her five tickets. Could be wrong on that.
That was great! And I’m betting El Rushbo ends up getting her the five tickets for the whole family.
Just a correction, its Pittsburgh, not Pittsbur or just “Da’ Burgh” for short.
I agree, that was a beautiful thing that you won’t hear on your local news station. They only talk about Rush when they can twist something he says out of context.
I needed that ending to get me through next week. LOL
Those of us who listen to EL Rushbo know that he is one of the most generous people out there.I know of no liberal/leftist who is remotely as generous (unless it is with other people’s money).
And yes,it brought a tear to both that lady’s eye and mine.
Rush gave away a car to a caller last year (again it happened at the end of the show on a Friday if I recall).
And quite a few listeners thought it was not a genuine offer.
I didn’t learn of Rush until the late 1980s when he subbed for Pat Sajek on his tv show one week. I was conservative then too but listening to Larry King’s late night radio show (which spouted every liberal talking point and had a number of Democrat politicians as guests).
Well Act-Up held a protest during one of the Pat/Rush tapings in the studio and the audience had to be cleared (they kept shouting out during the taping). He interviewed the latter guests without a studio audience.
Larry King called it a publicity stunt.
Larry got his own daytime radio show years later but he didn’t last there (and he would hang up on callers and say “you’re dumb” when he couldn’t challenge their ideas).
I just heard that on my drive home. I got all choked up, too.
Rush is just a lovable fuzzball!
I she’s “out of work” maybe she should sell the tickets and use the money to help her family with more essential goods and services.
I was looking around for the daily Rush thread to comment on this.
There is no one like Rush. No one.
Expresses his undying hatred for everything in Arizona. Demands Grand Canyon be filled in.
< /MSM reaction to Rush's act of generosity>
From what I gather, Rush is a softy where women are concerned.
I heard that..........got a lump in my throat. That’s the Rush I know. Puts his money....HIS money where his mouth is. Great ending to today’s program.
You mean YOU didn't get an Obama gas card?
Pay as you go!
It is yet another one of those remarkable spontaneous events that have kept me listening for over 20 years. God Bless you Rush!
