Skip to comments.Limbaugh on Michelle Obama booing at NASCAR event: A recognition of 'uppity-ism'(Audio)
Posted on 11/21/2011 11:20:52 AM PST by Rufus2007
There has been a ton of backlash from the media for Michelle Obama being booed at the Ford 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida on Sunday. However, even if it is considered disrespectful to the office of the First Lady, is it justified?
On his Monday show, radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh suggested it was certainly justify and deserved. According to Limbaugh, it was rebuke of the Obamas and some of the policies they have promoted while in the White House.
Bottom line: We dont like being told what to eat, Limbaugh said. We dont like being told how much to exercise. We dont like being told what weve got to drive. We dont like wasting money. We dont like our economy being bankrupted. We dont like 14 percent unemployment. The question is, what is there to cheer for when Ms. Obama and Ms. Biden show up?

I feel bad for the vet and fam but I’m sure they understand. I’m sure they had a great day anyway.
I agree that the possibilities you cite exist. But we get into this conflict between what is “truth” and what is “reality”.
The question is, what are the dynamics that are likely to exist *at the moment* of the election. With the proviso that “nobody can predict the future”; My recollection of the 2008 election is that McCain probably would have won except for the seriousness of the financial crisis AT THAT VERY MOMENT of the election. Meaning, one week earlier, IMO the finan crisis was not especially bad enough to cause McCain’s defeat. And then McCain returned in that dramatic move (which I felt at the time could have sealed the election EXCEPT he ratifed TARP and thus assured us he was part of the problem) So the first thing I would say is that with our polls we can get into the ballpark of the operative percentages of voting, but there are events that can warp things out in THAT WEEK of elections.
Now, you say that folks will remember a crappy 2011 holiday season, and I think that is 100% valid, but not necessarily all-controlling. With these obamabots, if it gets 4.3% better, they will be back on board.
We/you have to remember, that for many of the obamabots, for them to flip GOP, they are going to have to turn their FSA and redistributist thinking inside out. They are going to have to inflict upon themselves the notion that “we were dead stupid wrong”. And I say, you have to ask yourself, is that flip-around more likely, or, is it more likely that those folks just say “what the hell, he inherited a turd from GWBush and he really needs 4 more years to shine”.
I don’t know the answer, but I suspect the hard core left will not flip to GOP. They may stay home, and I am happy with that. But I sense that plenty of Repubs will stay home too.
If things get really bad, and I mean incredibly bad, worse than we can imagine it now, civil-disorder bad in the US over the next summer, we/you could see the rise of a movement that demands that government come to the rescue. 0bama appoints three new czars for “National Park Renewal” and “Public Arts Programs” and whatever other New Deal nonsense redux and you and I do not know and cannot predict how it will play.
We could see the gutting of most supervisory agencies charged with overseeing Fed elections. I mean, this is now a pattern, this notion of gutting supervisory agencies so that laws on the books have no effect. This is what happened in large part to the OTS Office of Thrift Supervision in advance of the current banking fiasco. Most of the FBI agents who were charged with looking at financial fraud were looking at terrorist stuff just when financial fraud went hyperbolic. Where is the prosecution of Corzine? Or Mozillo? What about Fast & Furious?
All I am saying is, we could have a LOT worse economy than we have now and still re-elect the zero. Is it likely? Maybe not. Is it possible? Oh sure.
I personally do not think the economy will improve to any degree, but it just might get 3-4% better just as a matter of noise and people might “buy” it as an indication of pending improvement. WE JUST SAW (even though it was a false signal) the stock market flip around from doom to quasi-exhuberance about a month ago. The stock market has an INCREDIBLE amount of influence on the nation’s mood. Few people are talking about it, but we had an ENORMOUS stock market rally over the past 6 weeks or so. 1500 DJ points. Probably one of the top 10 rallies of all time on a percentage basis. IF THAT HAPPENS right before the election there is nobody on the planet who can apply logic and analysis and history and deep consideration to what might happen and come up with an accurate result.
We are not dealing with logic and rationality. If people get panicked enough, I believe they will beg (vote) for salvation. You and I, we may think that is stupid. It being stupid means nothing probative.
In my adult life I’ve seen how every President since Johnson has been treated. Not one has ever been treated with respect.
Hay hay LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?
You've advocated your points quite well and are worth adding to the analysis of what may happen (and be in the mind of the electorate) one year hence.
Most salient is your comment that "We are not dealing with logic and rationality." At the risk of offending some here, I think that Tom Tancredo's idea of a civics literacy test for voters is not without merit. I'd hate to devise the scheme whereby it would be implemented -- far above my pay grade. Still, the idea that those who cast votes solely on emotion and without knowledge of the issues has long been troublesome to me. I dare say that if only those who were intelligent and had a genuine investment in America, a Democrat would never again hold office.
It is good that average folks are seeing Moo woman and Biteme for what they are, elitists folks who want to find ways to make life harder for the common man !
Sort of curious what sort of moron at NASCAR invited her anyway. This guy needs to be removed from his cushy position. He needs to be filing his unemployment papers today.
look for the pictures posted of her on the USS Carl Vinson refusing to put her hand to her heart during the National Anthem.
As much as I love NASCAR as a truly All-American sport, the recent tilt to the left has been a very poor move. The attempt to diversify the fan base (and the drivers) is ill-advised, IMHO, along with the embracing of some of the envionmental whacko agenda.
I thought things started heading in the wrong direction when pressure mounted to drop the RJR sponsorship and, of course, the name Winston Cup.
NASCAR would be wise to realize that its core fanbase is Americans who are pro-God, pro-gun, pro-military, pro-family and against the homosexual and diversity agendas. Trying to reach out beyond that only serves to diminish its appeal to real, red-blooded Americans.
look how big her thumbs are...
Do folks not see this as a stunt in order to gain support from Obama’s base?
Rush points out that the NASCAR crowd doesn’t like being told how to live. Chris Matthews says a day earlier that Obama isn’t telling us what to do. The reason for Michelle Obama to go to a NASCAR event was not to gain votes from the crowd there but from the “tell us what to do” plantation workers. Now they know. This is us versus them.
CHOWTIME FOR MOOCHELLE
Lol, I’ve seen so many of those large Michelle graphics that I’ve run out of words.
Slow day on the forum too.
“Worst Lady” not “First Lady”
Mz Arugula Obama -
Be careful, you’ll make her cry......lol.
Lol, a month on Arugula and she might fade away....which would be good...
Moo Moo recently said that arugula and steak is here favorite meal
- But a Food Channel Chef said Moo Moo was the biggest food hog (extra heavy duty disposal) she ever saw in her life - constantly eating - and that Moo Moo said her favorite food is.....
FRIED CHICKEN WINGS
Is that Food Channel Chef still alive and kicking? heh.
Metabolism, I eat anything I want, but I don’t over do it and stay the same weight. An elderly woman relative of mine constantly ate sweets - cakes, pies and candy, and stayed small. I was amazed that she stayed healthy as long as she did!!
Food Channel’s Paula Deen -
She recently released a new book
I believe she included Moo Moo’s huge appetite and the fact that Moo Moo eats tons - constantly - and that what she eats is not at all what she demands/mandates (I thought Barack is the man-dater) that schools, McDonald’s, and restaurants put on their menus and serve
Evidently Paula Deen is not afraid of any retaliation from Moo Moo
Sean Hannity is longtime friend of Paula Deen and her two sons
[Food Channels Paula Deen -]
Is she Italian, plump and goes barefoot? I never watch cooking shows but have had glimpses. I don’t care what Michelle eats, just her trying to tell us what to eat!
Paula Deen is a Southern blonde, not as plump, and wears shoes
Paula Deen said everything in her book - except call Moo Moo a hippo-crat
Wears shoes huh? Lol. I know someone else who watches some of them and have seen the one I spoke of but don’t know her name.
The other one?
The Barefoot Contessa?
Cooking stuff for friends and husband?
The Get Plumper Diet?
Not my speed -
Is she young and pretty cute? Italian I’m sure. Lol, I don’t know how many cook shows there even are!
Now I’m getting confused!
The 40ish tall very thin Blonde Barbie is (now) NY State Governor Cuomo’s girlfriend
I used to watch the FOODIE Channel when the Geeky looking crewcut guy (I forget his name) was on more - he explained things logically and showed his recommended knives and gizmos and I picked up some good tips from him
No longer watching FC much now - I do like the show of that spikey-blonde haired guy that travels around in his red (67-68 ?) Camaro 396 SS/RS convertible hitting all the obscure diners and diner chefs all over the USA
Great man-cave food
The folks weren’t booing Michele Ubama, they were booing Barak.
She was just the proxy. Barak wasn’t there so the crowd made do with what they were given.
Lol, confusion reigns! I’m surprised there aren’t more men chiefs on TV - maybe there are??
Wonder if you saw the depression food thread recently?
-A- Food 4 during the Obama Depression
-B- Food 4 while you are Depressed - because of Obama?
I think Chris Matthews finally may have -B- now
There was a long thread about what people ate during the big depression. It showed how inventive people could be with so little.
Hope Matthews keeps turning on Obama, the thrill is gone, lol
Depression food: :
Ketchup soup in a (urban) diner:
Rice, hot water, ketchup
Bread (1-2 days old) Pudding
During WWII we had huge gardens - taters, onions, sweet taters, squash, corn, carrots, peppers -
Enough to sell on a little red “Flyer” wagon down nearer to Long Island Sound - Housewives waited for my older brother and I each week -
Chris Matthews: :
His “Trickle-Down-Tingle” Infatuation is waning......
You could be right. I am going to read that whole thread because I am *not* much of a NASCAR fan and thus my booing theory is of low value!
