Obama: 153 Bridges Will Collapse (Another Scare Tactic)
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | September 2011 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So I'm walking through the library last night, the television set's on, I had it on for other people. I don't watch it. I had it on. One thing there's no football on, so why have it on? Anyway, Damages hadn't started yet, so no reason to have it on. And I walked by and I hear Obama, I'm not even looking at the screen, I hear Obama say this and I stopped dead in my tracks and I almost started trying to pull my hair out. I said, "Who in the world is gonna believe this?"

OBAMA: There are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls? (applause)

RUSH: When did the last one fall? What was the first stimulus for? What was the first trillion dollars for to fix all these bridges, 153 structurally deficient bridges. He's admitting that during his reign, he hasn't done anything about any of these deficient bridges. You've got this little bill he's waving around. He hasn't filed a bill. There is no jobs bill of Obama's that has been filed in Congress. Louie Gohmert filed his own two-page job bill, and it's called the American Jobs Act. They stole little Barry's title, stole his name, stole the name of his bill. Little Barry's out there waving this thing around as though there are millions of jobs in that 155-page thing he's waving around. And Gallup, I just saw this, Gallup's got a poll result apparently out there that a majority of Americans want the jobs bill passed. Sorry, majority of Americans, it isn't gonna be passed. There's no intention for this thing to pass in all or in part, there's no way.

How many Democrat senators are up for reelection in 2012? That's the main reason it's not gonna be passed. Well, it's over with 20. There are a lot of Democrat senators up for reelection in 2012. There's no way this jobs bill is even gonna get a vote in the Senate. There's no way Dingy Harry is gonna subject his people, not after what happened in New York 9, not after what happened in New Jersey and what happened in Virginia and Scott Brown's election in Massachusetts.

Hi, folks. How are you? Rush Limbaugh. I think, therefore I am here, behind the Golden EIB Microphone. Our telephone number if you want to be on the program is 800-282-2882. The e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.

Don't worry about looking up the exact number, Snerdley. It's not that big a deal. I just heard this, "Why wait 'til another bridge fails?" He's in Raleigh, North Carolina, yesterday with this, and Bite Me is in North Carolina today. So those people got two days of traffic tie-ups.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So what we have here: Here we have a guy who said that we're gonna get rid of political as usual, gonna be unified -- all of the utopian stuff. And what do we get? Nothing but a continuing of the usual politics of fear, crisis, and panic. So now Obama says there are 153 bridges out there on the verge of collapse. Once again, grab audio sound bite number seven. Listen to this one more time, folks.

OBAMA: There are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls? (applause)

RUSH: People are cheering this! Why would we have to wait for another bridge to fall? The question is: Why didn't you fix these bridges with the first trillion dollars that you spent? But more importantly than that -- more importantly than that -- if there are bridges about to fall down, shouldn't the Secretary of Transportation shut them down? If there are 153 bridges...? Did he say here on the verge of collapse? No. Hundred fifty-three "structurally deficient bridges" need to be repaired. Where? We need to be told where these 153 bridges are, because if he doesn't tell us, then the regime -- Obama -- is holding drivers hostage. He's letting us drive over 153 bridges that could apparently fail and people could plummet to their deaths at any moment.

Name the bridges! You remember how they demanded specifics from Bush and Tom Ridge on terror threats 'cause they accused those two guys of politicizing terror threats? Well, here. The Bamster says he knows of 153 bridges that could fall down at any moment, and four of them are "near the Beltline in North Carolina," four of them. name 'em so that people can avoid them. It is his job to shut them down, not hold their repairs hostage to passing his little tax bill. Do you understand? If he's serious, 153 bridges are structurally deficient, and rather than fix 'em, he's holding the repair hostage and endangering the lives of people that drive on these bridges just so he can get his nonexistent bill passed?

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: How do we think we can fix 153 bridges Obama says are at risk when after ten years we still haven't rebuilt the World Trade Center?

Sort of a reminder bump ... Although we snicker about LEOS taking out the family pet it is an actual outrage in many, many cases.

Not hitting at you - I think that nationwide we need to press for the protection of our pets, kids , etc. during SWAT or swat-like home-invasions by authorities.

We have many state legislatures in our control we could push on this issue. Now is a great time. 2012 we may take everything with the “right”people.

Warrant or no we could establish standards delineating exactly what cop equipment they can bring to bear in a particular situation.

No battering rams for a domestic broken window for instance. Like I say bump for more thoughts tomorrow.

Not a rant - just a thought.;-)

About the only good thing about the Sherman-Minton being shut down is that it might help with pushing the new bridge project forward. It's hard for people to be sympathetic to the enviro-wackos when it takes two or three hours to drive to work, compared to the twenty or thirty minutes it used to take.

One of my dad's coworkers at Fort Knox lives in Clarksville. It used to take him forty minutes to drive to work; now it takes almost four hours to go through Louisville. He's found that it is actually faster to drive down to Corydon and cross at Brandenburg, but that still takes almost two hours.

We surely don't want to lose any bridges.
