Rush Limbaugh Says Obama Named Time's 'Person of the Year' Because He Represents 'New, Stupid America' By Randy Hall Created 12/21/2012 - 9:43am
Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has slammed Time magazine's selection of President Barack Obama for the 2012 Person of the Year award when he charged on Wednesday and Thursday that the Democratic incumbent was re-elected because he appealed to low-information morons who make up a new demographic in the nation.
On Wednesday's syndicated program, Limbaugh responded to the announcement made that morning on NBC's Today Show by stating that Richard Stengel, the editor of the liberal publication, said Obama was chosen because he is a symbol, the champion, of the new low-information American voter.
While explaining why the president was selected, Stengel said:
He won reelection despite a higher unemployment rate than anybodys had to face in 70 years. Hes the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 percent of the vote. Thats something we havent seen since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
And hes basically the beneficiary and the author of a kind of new America, a new demographic, a new cultural America that he is now the symbol of.
Limbaugh also indicated that Stengel said 15 percent of voters actually dont care about politics. These are the people we didnt know who are gonna show up at the polls who actually like Barack Obama, in the sense they feel like hes outside of politics.
The radio host then described Time as a failing magazine with a dwindling subscription and a dwindling advertiser base that's no longer relevant in the media world but still holds onto this Man of the Year thing.
However, the conservative commentator saved his harshest barbs for Obama, who was also chosen for the honor in 2008:
Weve never had a more radical, weve never had a more partisan politician in the White House than Obama. Its only a low-information voter (we used to have call em morons) that could think hes outside of politics, but there you have it.
I wonder what these elite Democrats really think about that. So this guys Man of the Year because idiots love him? Because believe me, if they think low-information voters are idiots, I guarantee you theyll be glad to take their votes. The new stupid America? That should have been Man of the Year, Person of the Year: Stupid people, the low-information voter.
Then on Thursday, Limbaugh continued his discussion of the subject by pointing out that Obama is the first politician to get votes from people who don't care about anything and who aren't paying attention. That is worth honoring in 2012, almost 2013 America.
The conservative host then stated that this development adds even more insult to the injury we're already facing. We already have a debacle.
Do you know what the real worry here is given this? If you don't feel bad enough yet (chuckles), let me add this. Ronald Reagan -- and Obama knows this, by the way. Ronald Reagan was the last transformative president we had, a man who genuinely changed the direction the country was going.
Limbaugh stated that Obama wants to follow in Reagan's footsteps, except for the fact that he's promoting socialism, redistributionism, big government expansion.
If the Democrat's agenda is seen by a lot of people as transformative and good, then we're gonna lose the country for a generation or two, he added.
As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC Today's co-host, Matt Lauer, stated in November that if he was deciding the Person of the Year, he'd select either President Obama or climate change.
Soon after, the selection process generated some controversy when it was learned that Sandra Fluke, the former Georgetown University law student who became embroiled in a national debate over whether women should receive free contraception from insurance companies, was named as one of the 40 candidates for the award.
At that time, many people stated that the honor was Obama's to lose since most of the other candidates did not have a prominent impact on America or the news in the past year.
Rush is right to point out the danger the GOP might soon have to face. The Democratic Party is a compilation of several minorities -- including liberals, union members, environmental activists, feminists, African Americans and homosexuals -- and the addition of this new demographic might be enough to give them the majority vote they need to win elections in the future.
:: Stupid people, the low-information voter. ::
Rush has hit on something here but he may not have thought of one “angle”.
The Dhimmicrats have figured out that the “low-information voter” isn’t prone to showing up to vote. Actually, you can count on the fact that they won’t show up. Once you check the past voter-rolls, you know ^exactly^ (by name and address!) who won’t be there in November.
The Dhimmicrats vote for them.
This doesn't make sense to me. If Obama is the first, how can this be something we haven't seen since FDR? That would make Obama the second unless I'm missing something.
Keep ‘em stupid.
Keep ‘em scared.
And keep ‘em votin’ DemocRat.
So much for a new tone of civility from the Obamunist DNC.
In Chapter X of the Debate Handbook, we discuss this point. (See Universal Suffrage--Threat To Liberty.)
The obvious place to start to challenge inappropriate voting, is with those who receive unearned benefits from the taxpayers. That does not mean Romney's 47%, many of whom paid into the social security system, or paid with part of their lives for veterans benefits. It certainly means those who choose to remain on Welfare, rather than work; and those who have children out of wedlock, expecting the taxpayers to support them.
That AND the fact he proves that Santa Claus is REAL to millions of Americans. The Takers have overtaken the Makers.
What a choice: the stupid party (republicans), or stupid people party (democrats).
“A mind is a terrific thing to waste!”
He’s the first elected Democrat President to win two consecutive terms since Bill Clinton (who never got above 50%) since FDR. Democrat presidents haven’t been elected twice much since The Big Mistake of 4 terms for Roosevelt.
*** people who don’t care about anything and who aren’t paying attention***
These would be the people on drugs of one kind or another, which I would guess would be about 50% of the population. People who are stoned don’t want to work, take responsibility for anything (including their children), don’t pay their rent or mortgages and get evicted, just want to have fun or sleep all day, never read anything, get their “news” inbetween episodes of “American Idol” or “Survivor” and don’t give one tiny thought to the future. The downfall of our country is directly attributable to drug usage, IMHO. This is what makes this whole scenario so depressing. How do you get 50% of the population off drugs to the point where they can pay attention and care again? Answer, impossible - especially without God, who has been banned from public view our “government.”
Less than 9% of the population used any illicit drug in the past month - but over 50% used the legal mind-altering drug alcohol in the last month. Are you saying the downfall of our country is directly attributable to alcohol use?
“Keep em stupid.
Keep em scared.
And keep em votin DemocRat.”
And keep ‘em parasites.
Hes the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 percent of the vote. Thats something we havent seen since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.The author should have said:
Since FDR, Obama is the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 percent of the vote.Or, maybe I'm still missing something. It's days like this I wish I drank coffee.
Keep em stupid,Keep ‘em dumb.
Time magazine’s “Man” of the Year... President Barack Hussein Mountain Dew Comacho Obama.
