The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Friday, September 2, 2011
The EIB Network ^ | September 2, 2011 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 09/02/2011 9:58:03 AM PDT by pyx

AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back — just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! America’s anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do—that’s host. Get ready to what you were born to do—that’s listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

Rush is really way off on the size of the labor pool. He was implying the administration has been cooking the books to keep unemployment lower than it would be.

Its pretty embarassing. People with jobs and those seeking jobs are the work force. The number shrinks when people go underground, or give up, or move back to Central America. He made the changes in this number sound so sinister. If there has been a change in calculation method he should document it. I guess its one of the .4% of times he is documented to be completely wrong!

Yes. People stop officially looking when their unemployment insurance runs out they work under the table and don’t ‘count’ any more. They have to show up and keep ‘looking’ to get the unemployment insurance.

Nice bookkeepers answer, but tell that story to one of the folks walking around here applying for ANY kind of job at all to keep feeding their family and you might wind up with a fat lip.

We’re not hiring ‘cause we’re running out of work to keep the guys we’ve got right now busy.

Guess it’s only a matter of time before I can be another of your unpersons.

Stick it up your nose.

One of the drawbacks here is that there is a real shortage of housing, made worse by floods this summer that destroyed over 4000 houses and apartment buildings. Construction jobs and contractors are also in demand.

John Fund is an idiot.

Pay him no mind.

She is not going to endorse Rick Perry.

She knows we need robust debates and a robust primary season.

sloop, we are spinning our wheels. I look at this election in 2012 as the best chance we’ve ever had to actually clean up government. My support for Sarah Palin is all about doing that. Perry will make a good enough president but he will not seriously tackle government corruption. I see no reason to keep beating myself up fighting against government corruption if the American people are too damned stupid to recognize it as a problem. I’ll save my time and money for the golf course, cruises and my family.

However, I don’t believe John Fund anyway. He is just another one of the Establishment Elitist Pigs.

RUN SARAH RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks; I just read the Fund article. This shocked me (if it was a reliable poll):

She polls only 8% among Republicans in the latest Fox News poll. Surely, her support would climb if she actually entered the race but she faces another obstacle. Many Republicans just don’t believe she is qualified to be president or think she is damaged goods in a general election.

The Fox poll found a full 71% of Republicans and 66% of Tea Party supporters don’t want her to run.
~~~~~~~~~~

66% of Tea Party supporters??? Are they nuts??? Have Tea Party supporters gotten behind Perry so quickly?

Right, quoting from that idiot Fund’s column.

Her speech tomorrow actually blasts some of Perry’s claims according to an article at C4P.

Just think about it: Why would Governor Palin want clear sailing for a candidate instead of robust debate and challenging primaries?

Re The 0’s World Famous Jobs Speech, I wish (humbly) to make the following prediction:

After a weekend at Camp David, three or four days back playing golf and conducting meetings, the whole “Speech Thing” will be very quietly and discreetly dropped like a dead skunk.

This isn’t a faculty lounge discussion on fine theory, it’s the Real World come knocking and The 0 simply hasn’t got anything to say about things he’s never had to face.

You need to read the poll correctly and I need to ping you to the pollster: It’s Perry’s pollster!!!

26% want her to run which puts her in a tie with Perry .

Put another way, 76% do not want Perry!
