Everything's Cool Here Because of You (Rush Limbaugh thanks his listeners)
Rushlimbaugh.com ^ | March 6, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/06/2012 2:07:27 PM PST by NYer

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Everything we do here is about you. If you're not here all the rest of this is academic. All the rest of it is of no consequence. Even now, I'm getting more e-mail than I have ever received in my life in both the ElRushbo@eibnet.com account and the Rush 24/7 subscriber website account, and it's all wonderful, it's all fabulous, and so many of you are asking, "How do you put up with this?" And the answer is very simple, I know you're there, and I know you get all this, and I know you know what lies are being told. I know you remember all of these things. You remember Obama laughing when a comedian wishes for me to die. You remember. You are not fooled by Obama. You in this audience understand exactly, as well as I do, what we're dealing with, who we're dealing with, and I know that you're in this every bit as deep and as committed as I am to it.

It's not an exaggeration and it's not a cliche to say that I know you're in this with me. I don't feel like I'm in this alone, by any stretch of the imagination. And then my family, radio broadcast partners, everything's cool. I often say to myself this is the league that I play in, and I know the rules. And I know that they're not fair. It's just the way it is. I don't lose sleep over it or cry about it. I will call attention to the hypocrisy and all that, but as you know, we laugh about it. My whole aim is to have as many fully informed voting Americans as possible. If I ever had to attach a mission statement to this show, that's what it would be. So there's no lying to you. There's no misleading you. I don't want you all involved in the public arena, believing a bunch of stuff that isn't true. Policy-wise I'm talking about here.

We're not like them. Even when these people make these vicious, crude remarks, we don't demand they be shut up. We don't demand their advertisers leave 'em. We don't demand that they be fired. We don't demand that they quit. That's what they do. We're not afraid of words, and we're not the ones that lie about them. It's the other way around. When you have a moral core, that's a firm foundation, a moral code and core is a firm foundation. Now, everybody strays from it; nobody's perfect; everybody falls off of the moral foundation they're on. You try to get back on it as quickly as you can when that happens. We don't try to pretend there isn't a moral code and we don't advocate for the abolition of the moral code, all of which they do. My primary source of strength, folks, is you. A little bit of me, too.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: See, here's the thing, folks. Even for a moment when I slip up like I did and talk like a Democrat, you know that I don't really think like one. Even when I slip up and sound like 'em, which is not very often, you know that's not me. And therefore you're able to keep everything in perspective. I love you for it and we'll see you tomorrow.

I sent Rush an email of support last night. I'm not a subscriber but I have enjoyed listening to him for years, even if there are times we don't agree...and that's ok.

They tried to pin the Oklahoma City bombing on him.

He’ll be fine.

I'm going to send him one too, right after this post.

There is one thing this whole thing has showed me though, and that is how fast so called Conservatives here are willing to turn on and eat their own, as if the primary discussions here weren't evidence enough.

These past few days have showed me how we have earned, and seemingly work diligently to earn the label party of stupid.

How in the hell does anyone listen to this old fool. This old man is painful to listen to. Sorry but I would be off that show in NY nano second.

He used to be a big host in NYC. He’s had his own controversies in radio, and he isn’t defending Limbaugh.

Rush was right in attacking the absurdity of going before congress and asking for your contraceptives to be paid for and should have really laid into her for it and congress for even listening to her.

But he had to be back on drugs to think he could do it the way he did.

Of course Sarah Palin has just pointed out the double standard .

But both were wrong it is just the left doesn't get held accountable

Rush, nor any of us, should use bad language. We should hold ourselves to a higher standard.

Rush is a great teacher as well as an entertaining speaker. I hope that he always humbly appreciates his historic power and influence.

He probably did that, because he was fired for comments he made when Brown died.

One of the indisputable facts of life that I learned from Rush........

Are you still the same old jackass using that line on every Rush thread that comes along? What the hell you trying to prove? We know you hate Rush, and you've made your point. So give it up dude, you don't accomplish anything other than reinforcing your reputation as being a big hemorrhoid and begging for a thread fight.......

I was a Bob Grant baby. My mom loved him. He always said “Get Gadaffi”. He must be senile by now.

There are a lot of people on the right who dislike RL for some reason and are not unhappy at hos troubles. I am not one of those but I have heard plenty of caustic, dismissive comments from those who are. A relative who loathsBO and is a major Pro Lifer considers RL to be an ‘immoral person’ for his multiple marriages and viagra fueled Central American golf vacations as well as being a ‘drug user.’. Another old money conservative GOPErconsiders him ‘crude’ and a ‘junkie’ and ‘not someone I would ever want to entertain’. There are also numerous ‘egotistical blowhard’ comments heard. I cannot get across to these people the RL is the only prime time commentator who will actually offer sophisticated analytical commentary both on substantive and philosophical issues and it is framed in a clear but serious manner. RL’s importance as a commentator cannot be dismissed but many who are on the right find him an uncomfortable presence because he does cast such a long shadow and they would not be unhappy to see him toppled.

I want to give a nod to Rush. I am disgusted by the pile on of creeps.

Buying his tea....hmmmm...that’s a good idea.

Can you tell us...is it good? I’m a tea purist...my best find is Tea Java at Trader Joes/Whole Foods. Straight, pure black tea. Never cared for sweet tea....But, even before this CRAP that Rush is enduring, I did think of trying the fruit tea of his.

Which is best? I can always cut it with Tea Java and reduce the sugar. ....And, it’s not that I don’t like sugar! I love me a Mexican coke made with real cane sugar...so...have an open palate.

I do want to support Rush. He has taught me more than I learned at 4 years of state univ.
