Limbaugh responds to Obama: 'Never in my life have I seen a regime like this'
The Washington Examiner ^ | April 2, 2010 | By Byron York

Posted on 04/02/2010 7:22:47 AM PDT by MaestroLC

In his new interview with CBS, President Obama refers to the "troublesome" talk and "vitriol" of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. "Keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out," Obama says. "It happens often when you've got an economy that is making people more anxious, and people are feeling like there is a lot of change that needs to take place. But that's not the vast majority of Americans. I think the vast majority of Americans know that we're trying hard, that I want what's best for the country."

I asked Limbaugh what he thought about the president's comments. His program's popularity is undeniably soaring now, but has it risen and fallen with economic anxiety -- that is, was he less popular during times of economic security and more popular in times of economic worries? Since Limbaugh has been broadcasting nationally for more than 20 years, there ought to be some sort of pattern, if what Obama says is accurate.

"I have yet to have a down year at the EIB Network," Limbaugh responds. "I and most Americans do not believe President Obama is trying to do what's best for the country. Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people, purposely. I have never seen the media so supportive of a regime amassing so much power. And I have never known as many people who literally fear for the future of the country."

The point, Limbaugh says, is not that listeners are feeling anxiety about the economy, although many undoubtedly are. It's that they are feeling anxiety about the Obama agenda.

Rush is right. This regime is not listening to the will of the people!!! I feel we are living in very dangerous times and Washington has turned a deaf ear to us...So now we are yelling, protesting, and making plans to take back our country in the voting booth...

OT: During Thursday's program, did Rush mention where he went on his extended weekend trip?

Rush is right. Yeah, the economy is really shaky, but my greatest concern is for what Obama is going to do to our country. After so many years of listening to Wright preach “God D*mn America” and worse, why would anyone think he would do anything that would help our country? And why couldn’t the voters see this back when it would count? Can you get grape juice out of a lemon? Why would people think they could? You’re going to get plain, bitter lemon juice. That’s what we’re seeing now.

Obama wants what is “right for the country” according to the liberal agenda. Not what is right based on any moderate or conservative viewpoints, but only from the LIBERAL point of view.

The bottom line is that Obama, Pelosi, etc. are too liberal for the mainstream of America as they pursue their agenda. They want this country to be more left than it is.

In spite of electing Obama and Democratic congresses, America overall is a center/right country, politically, socially, and economically.

You have got to know Obama and the Democrats are in deep trouble when they start believing their own Press Releases.

Furthermore, Obama has to be a real doofus in picking a fight with Rush Limbaugh. Such a fight is a positive for Limbaugh and a negative for Obama. I call this a lose-lose proposition.

I look forward to hearing Rush every day.

I can remember his program on 1/20/09, Obama’s crowning day of triumph. I was so down, his words gave me hope.

Everything Rush has said about Zero has come true.

Obama is a Marxist, and dangerous. He will not stop unitl the American people take away his power.

The last peaceful chance we have to do this is on November 2, 2010.

That’s only 7 months away.

That’s 7 months to demolish his lies and to expose the Democrats as the anti-American Communists that they truly are.

We have to speak up to our, friends, neighbors and co-workers, becasue the future of our families and theirs is on the line.

The year 2010 is a milestone year in American history—make no mistake about it.

Those in the futuer will look back and either say “Why didn’t they stop this when it was so easy?” or “Thank God patrotic Americans preserved our freedoms!”

The clock is ticking—and the choice is ours.

Rush is correct...we haven’t been this scared since the Cuban missile crisis.

Back then my Mom had us cleaning out all empty food jars and filling them with water. Also we went to many different grocery stores to buy food to store in the basement.

Even after the crises was over she swore you couldn’t trust the Russians and expected a first strike. Her parents were for eastern Europe.

My feeling is Rush understands the magnitude of the threat. And he understands what it means to him personally.

If I had to bet money, I'd wager he's been out of the country planning his escape hatch. I'd imagine he is preparing setting up residency somewhere and finding places to secure his wealth. And I don't blame him, I'd be doing the exact same thing.

7 months for them to jam as much stuff through as they can before they get kicked out of office, if they do.

They can cement their hold on office with some “election reform” and “amnesty”.

We watched “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”, starring Jimmy Stewart, last night. When the press conflated his first appearance in Congress and published ridiulous pictures of him and storylines, he went out and did what I’d have done...sought out each of them and punched them in the nose.

The Obamamedia has done such a disservice to the American people, it borders on treason in this writer’s opinion. At least their numbers are tanking...but they still dominate the airwaves. We have conservative talk radio and we need to keep it. Thank you Rush.

If you haven’t seen that movie, it’s recommended viewing for all. Some things never change. Until they do.

In 1944 my grandfather landed on the beach head at Anzio, He volunteered even though as a Mennonite his religion prohibited armed military service.
He left as an outcast from his family and church, he returned as a hero with the three German bullets on a key chain that were removed from various parts of his body.
He said that he did it so that his children and grand children wouldn’t have to.

So now we have the kenyan’s ass parked in the white house and I’m supposed to go along quietly?

The Constitution is the limiting document upon the feds; the federal government cannot become greater than the granting power. That is, the federal servant cannot become greater than its master........the states.

.......according to judicial analyst, and judge, Andrew P. Napolitano healthcare reforms amount to "commandeering" the state legislatures for federal purposes, which the Supreme Court has forbidden as unconstitutional. "The Constitution does not authorize the Congress to regulate state governments. Nevertheless, the Congress has told the state governments that they must modify their regulation of certain areas of healthcare, they must surrender their regulation of other areas of healthcare, and they must spend state taxpayer-generated dollars in a way that the Congress wants it done.(Excerpt) Read more at newsmax.com............

States Can Check Washington's Power; by directly proposing constitutional amendments
WSJ 12/21/09 | DAVID B. RIVKIN JR. AND LEE A. CASEY
FR Posted 12/2/09 by rhema

For nearly a hundred years, federal power has expanded at the expense of the states—to a point where the even the wages and hours of state employees are subject to federal control. Basic health and safety regulations that were long exercised by states under their "police power" are now dominated by Washington.

The courts have similarly distorted the Constitution by inventing new constitutional rights and failing to limit governmental power as provided for in the document. The aggrandizement of judicial power has been a particularly vexing challenge, since it is inherently incapable of correction through the normal political channels.

There is a way to deter further constitutional mischief from Congress and the federal courts, and restore some semblance of the proper federal-state balance. That is to give to states—and through them the people—a greater role in the constitutional amendment process.

The idea is simple, and is already being mooted in conservative legal circles. Today, only Congress can propose constitutional amendments—and Congress of course has little interest in proposing limits on its own power. Since the mid-19th century, no amendment has actually limited federal authority.

But what if a number of states, acting together, also could propose amendments? That has the potential to reinvigorate the states as a check on federal power. It could also return states to a more central policy-making role.

The Framers would have approved the idea of giving states a more direct role in the amendment process. They fully expected that the possibility of amendments originating with the states would deter federal aggrandizement, and provided in Article V that Congress must call a convention to consider amendments anytime two-thirds of the states demand it.(Excerpt) Read more at online.wsj.com ...

People are anxious about a rogue legislature working in conjunction with a marxist thug while being given a blind eye by the media. Great guns full speed ahead on the government take-over of the private sector, jobs be damned.

People don't need Rush to get them pissed off. They just need eyes, ears and a bit of common sense. These idiots will soon have a large group of unemployed and very angry people who feel that their voices are not being heard through peaceful protests. They will not simply go away.

I think we are going to have to cart out the good reverend again in 2012. We can show some choice excerpts, and use as a tagline a variation on your post: "Well, what did you expect of a man who listened to this for 5 years?".

It would be a variation on Reagan's "are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?" line.
