Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country, Rush Limbaugh said Thursday. To be watching all of this, to have my intelligence all of us to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way its being, is it just makes me ashamed.
The conservative radio hosts ire was the result of the sequester, the looming federal spending cuts set to automatically go into effect at the end of this month unless Congress and the White House can reach a deal. He called it deja vu all over again and ripped President Barack Obama for keeping himself above the fray and painting himself as a Washington outsider even though it was his idea.
Here we get worked up over $44 billion thats the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year, Limbaugh said. And in truth were going to spend more this year than we spent last year. Were just not going to spend as much as projected. Its all baseline budgeting. There is no real cut below a baseline of zero. There just isnt. And yet here they come, sucking us in, roping us in. Panic here. Fear there. Crisis. Destruction. No meat inspection. No cops. No teachers. No firefighters. No air traffic control."
Im sorry, my days of getting roped into all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class both parties play along with all of this, he continued. Its insulting. I dont know how else to describe it.
In 2008 (by my reckoning) the MSM transitioned from “heavy liberal bias” to “full member of the Baraqqi regime”.
So we’re not only swimming upstream, but against a very strong and fast current.
So he was never ashamed of his country during the Clinton administration? That tells you a lot about his (lack of) character. Face it, Limbaugh was never a conservative. He just pretends to be one on the radio for money $$$$.
The government simply cannot keep delaying the inevitable. No one is going to like it at first but it needs to be explained in terms of avoiding a much worse fate down the road, and the cuts need to be continued until we do get a baseline reduction. Hopefully a momentum shift in adjusting people’s expectations will take hold sooner rather than later.
>> So he was never ashamed of his country during the Clinton administration?
It’s a play on Michelle Obama’s statement that went something like: “For the first time in my life I am proud of my Country”
You obviously didn't listen to the whole program today.........you were listening weren't you, even for a little while?
I'm just being silly, of course you weren't......and you've never been a fan so I can't figure out why you continue to drop in on the Rush threads and leave your pile of crap unless you're still craving for attention.
It's getting so we smell you ahead of time.......
I was ashamed when Clinton took Elian Gonzalez at gunpoint and sent him to communist hell in Cuba. - hence my handle ‘aelian nation’
Other than the millions of abortions ( and that is no insignificant other ), that was when this country started to lose its way and moral core.
Clinton was also responsible for the killing of dozens of children at Waco.
He knows that, he's just making his expected appearance on a Rush thread in order to take a dump........
50% of the cuts are military related.
Yet Rush, only mentions cops, firefighters and air traffic controllers.
Radio Hostess Vicki McKenna of WISN and WIBA in Milwaukee and Madison, WI calls the bald-faced bogeyman talk
I think she came up with a great term, and hope it catches on.
He was being sarcastic. Obama mentioned firefighters, cops and teachers. None of which are paid by the Federal government.
Exactly correct. There is simply no way Obama could be getting away with this without the full and absolute support of the corrupt, partisan MSM.
The media has become the propaganda arm of the left. They use it to destroy people, repeat talking point, and repeat lies and false information. We don’t have a real news media.
You are so wrong!
take every kinky tax exemption you can.....do everything LEGALLY to avoid taxes....start bartering....start buying at the 2nd hand stores.....
the America that my father fought for in WW2 is no longer....
Rush and the rest of the conservative talk show hosts need to go after the Republicans in congress. We already know what the dems are like but to call John Boehner a “nice guy” while he continues to go along with the destruction of America as we once knew it is criminal. Major pressure must be put on the Republican Party to straighten up. Rush and others need to start promoting 3rd Party, ie. Constitution Party. Otherwise they are backing a self serving party that doesn’t give a crap about it core conservative constituents.
It’s tough when decades of good-natured work being “America’s Anchorman” is all for naught. The leviathan rolls over all things good...large and small, young and old, strong and weak. Evil. There is much of it...foreign and domestic. Be prepared.
He may feel that way. Any of us might in his position. But the fact remains he and any other person who fights the "Leviathan" does have a beneficial effect. The left has been scrutinized in our generation in a way it never was during its conquests of the 20th Century. Many of those folks never saw the evil lurching toward them. We are priviledged to have had so long to see this coming. It has materially changed the equation for the left. It has rendered their "victory" far more shallow and transitory than it might have been. If God's grace is with us, we will emerge from this winter. Keep on believing ...
Amen, Springfield Reformer. Amen.
“In 2008 (by my reckoning) the MSM transitioned from heavy liberal bias to full member of the Baraqqi regime.”
This is why I am reveling in this story out of NYC where the local CBS news anchor choked his wife, who is also a local CBS newsperson. I am sorry for their children, but I am assuming that they are both Obamabots, and not enough bad things can happen to those people. They are our enemy!
