The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Friday, October 5, 2012
The EiB Network ^ | 10/05/2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 10/05/2012 8:05:05 AM PDT by IMissPresidentReagan

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).

The Romney camp needs to dismiss the new unemployment numbers as Chicago Math. They must not accept the data, period.

Hopefully this will continue, but expect the Regime to get even more aggressive and dangerous as they are seeing now that they are up against the wall.

She can be indignant all she wants, but the comments on Yahoo News are running about 10-1 against the accuracy of these numbers.

Plus just wait, there will be no industry movement in new manufacturing orders, decreased inventories, etc, etc that suggest the business world is buying off on them.

My brother and his wife both became unemployed in 2008.

After over two years, they are finally working again now—both part-time, minimum wage jobs.

Barack Obama be praised.

Romney needs to not only dismiss these number, but also point out, even if they are 100% legit (which there is no way in hell that they are), 8.1% and 7.8% are a lot closer together than Obama’s promised 5.5% which we’ve yet to see...unless you’re talking about government workers. . . .

The regime is desperate and their followers are desperate. Reading stories about O’s sycophants crying about unfair it is he can’t have a teleprompter at a debate.

I say let him have the teleprompter. Mitt could so easily make him look like a chump then by saying unexpected things and watch Obama’s programmed response be foolish and look .... well insane.

These people have to be incredibly stupid to think you can have a teleprompter during a debate, unless the questions (and answers) are provided to Obozo in advance, which is always a possibility.

And doesn’t it ever occur to them that, if their guy can’t even function without a teleprompter, that there might be something amiss with his fabled rhetorical skills, hmmm?

While Michelle Obama pushes out these ridiculous Government School Meal Requirements (why aren't these "requirements" a state issue, and who elected Michelle Obama to anything?), here is a lunch calender for Sidwell Friends:

Sidwell Friends Lunch Menus Calendar

Granted, there are a lot of items that my kids would probably not eat on that menu, but I bet they receive decent size portions! This is just another shining light on what would happen with Obamacare! Centralize a program, see the full costs of that program and then reduce what you get! Had a friend of mine be told that their child could NOT purchase two lunches if one lunch did not satisfy!

Oh and I'm not sure if others are seeing the Obama Coal ad that shows coal miners on a stage for a rally and then claims:

1) They were forced to go
2) Would receive no pay
3) Mine permanently shut down due to the rally

What I have been able to learn:

1) The meeting was mandatory but nobody was forced to go
2) The rally was considered a political event and there are laws on the books that you cannot pay people to go to political rallies
3) The mine WAS shut down, but just for that day due to safety and security reasons. The mine also shuts down due to weather and power outages (power outages at a coal mine? interesting).

Coal Miner’s Donor

Coal miners lost pay when Mitt Romney visited their mine to promote coal jobs

The owners of the Ohio mines are big Republican supporters right now because Obama and Biden have declared war on coal. And what is the big difference between some of what happened above and what happens at EVERY Union rally?

Brilliant, Ohio coal plant mine[*] closes: guess why?

Reading stories about O’s sycophants crying about unfair it is he can’t have a teleprompter at a debate.

The ONLY points in a debate where a teleprompter would help is with opening and closing statements. Everything else is improptu. Of course, the progs desire DEAR LEADER to cheat to win. WIN BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!

I would just keep going after the US economic growth charts, the fact that more and more people STOP looking for work, our continuing increasing debt with NO budget voted on by Harry Reid and Obamacare estimates have tripled since the law was passed and it hasn’t even really begun yet. I would also throw in the school lunch stuff that our kids are eating less and less and being told to suck it up!

the regimes war on coal is one of the biggest stories out there and its all bullsh_t.

By now every one should know that clean fired coal plants are readily available and on on line. To start a war on coal and use phony stats just to close them down is nothing more than communism at work. Destroy capitalism and instal Socialism, Marxism, Communism. Its all crap and no one is talking about it.

I'm torn on it being a bad move. Some people like an apology because he did need to clarify the difference between income taxes and other taxes. The "OTHER TAXES" category makes up the "being buried" remark that Biden said and that Romney and Ryan are clamping on to.

Obama also opened himself up for a HUGE uppercut with this soundbite:

President Obama: If You Want To Be President, You Owe The American People The Truth

This is just hanging there waiting to be smacked out of the park! For starters, play that sound clip "If You Want To Be President, You Owe The American People The Truth" and then flash to Eric Holder and Fast and Furious. Then play it again "If You Want To Be President, You Owe The American People The Truth" and then flash to the burning Libyan Embassy, show the 9/11/2012 date and show the clip of the new Libyan President saying that there was NO protest going on.

I’m not negative!! I am VERY upbeat today!!

I'm outraged by this FAKE 7.8% unemployment number. My mood is about the same as Rush's today.

I know several FReepers predicted that the rate would drop down to at least 7.9%, however it's so difficult to explain that this number is indeed FAKE to the average voter.

This is so disgusting... I hope it doesn't erase Romney's positive bumps in the polls because he obviously won Debate #1.

By the way, my husband said Jack Welch was all over Twitter and CNBC this morning screaming that this unemployment number is fake and probably manipulated by the Obama Regime. Anyone see a link for that?

The problem is for Romney to concede this misstatement is just insane.Especially, when you look at all the damage zero has done to the country from dead soldiers/ambassadors to 5 trillion in debt. No budget in over 1,000 days, a near war with Iran and sheer chaos in the mid-east.Add in An economy that is near disaster all in four years and all we get is it was all GW’s fault. Seems like he wants us to apologize all the time. And yet his side never does anything wrong. Just more BS to me.

Seems there were two different ways of measuring unemployment. One showed over 8% the other under 8%. Guess which one they picked? And, its puling stuff out of thin air as well.
