The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Friday, January 20, 2012
The EiB Network ^ | 01/20/2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 01/20/2012 8:33:48 AM PST 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).

Bets Rush will be so in the tank for Romney today that he plays a bazillion clips of Noot, and praises Noot, from the debate pings.

JMHO, any time we get a chance to stick things up the DBM’s ...er, nose, the more the merrier. Couldn’t happen to more deserving SOB’s.

Also MHO, maybe somebody should hit a couple of bars on Keystone XL, just as a sop to us poor little critters huddled out here in the snowbanks while we try and figure out how to get jobs/fuel......

(I’m only two or three times as PO’d about that as yesterday at this time, and I’m being real calm about it.....some folks around this jobsite look like they’re mad enough to chew razorwire....)

No, I don't have SIRI, I only have an iPhone 3 much less a 3S, much more less the 4S needed to run SIRI.

I do have MacSpeech Dictate voice recognition software and it works very well. I would assume SIRI works similarly. You "train" it by reading preset paragraphs and it records your pronunciation. If you have a 'say' thick western PA accent you can correct certain words to recognize what you mean like for instance yinz or (second-person plural) yunz or you’uns.

So, yeah, I'd think SIRI is pretty cool. Especially if you're a girl on the go like yourself.

Regardless of what anyone thinks of Newt as a potential nominee, he did what folks have been wishing someone would do .... gave the Obamamedia what they have deserved (and then some) for a long, long time. The debate itself, for the most part, had the substance of a Jerry Springer show. We need respectable conservatives to run our debates (imagine Sarah asking the candidates questions on energy, perhaps Ollie North on foreign policy/military issues, for example!), not lib “enemedia”. Just a thought.

I think the sorts of calls that Rush will get today are going to revolve around these two subjects, the first being with how effectively Newt took it to the MSM (Something people have been clamoring for, for many years):

That “question” at the beginning of the debate (as well as Newt’s answer) seemed staged, pre-planned, and well-rehearsed.

I’m loving Newt in these debates with his attack on whiny Juan and now CNN. He’s got balls. I don’t like Mitt and I don’t think Santorum has the voice or money to win. Won’t even give a mention to crazy uncle Paul.

I would like to see a brokered convention because I think the ruling class would be happy to elect any of the guys currently running. Any of them. I opt for none of the above. I had a nice rant on the Scarborough thread on that subject :-)

Nothing different Rush, it’s how the American People viewed the debate, and hopefully Newt opened some eyes with his backbone.

Went here to see the hubub about the cancelled appearance by Noot, and stayed at this link to read Paulbot delusions. For example:
Del Sharp · Top Commenter
Key Qi, it’s too bad that you haven’t figured out that the establishment pick is Gingrich. That should have been made clear when Rick Bilderberger Perry endorsed Gingrich. If you support Santorum, you are not a conservative, and you are part of the problem, as Ron Paul has proven time, and time, again that Santorum is a big government warmonger Republican.

I have an Android phone rather than an iPhone, so I downloaded their version of a personal assistant.

I’ve been playing with it for the last few days. Sometimes it works; sometimes it has no idea what I’m talking about. I did manage to engage it in a fairly extended conversation last night; it even told me that I was “an inquisitive one.”

Kind of creepy, sometimes.

And, BTW, I don’t have a thick Western PA accent. I’m not a “yinzer,” and I don’t go “dahntahn.”

I’m sure Newt knew he was going to get that question and he had pre-loaded both barrels .... so yeah, it probably was rehearsed although I hear his debate preparation is to have a soft drink and look over the notes his grandkids give him (smile more, etc.).

Wow. TELL ME that Rush doesn't read Free Republic. Just heard him go off on (paraphrasing as best as I can recall seconds later during a commercial break) "don't for one minute think that John King went slinking away with his tail between his legs! Don't for one minute think that exchange with Newt gave John King an elevated heart rate!" The first thing out of his monologue this morning looks very much to me like he's responding directly to made on the live debate thread.

We know, Rush. We know that the MSM didn't learn a lesson. Try telling us something we don't already know. But if you think King wasn't shaken and embarassed, even if only for a few moments, then you're seeing the world through smoke-colored glasses, which provide just as distorted a view of reality as rose-colored glasses.

Newt’s response was geared towards the voters. He knows the MSM has no shame and there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell of changing them. This was raw meat for the electorate.

Mission accomplished

actually you are wrong....King was stuffed, sacked, DEA and he knew it, showed it, and rapidly analysed it.

if there was no commie larve he would be out in the cold to die as worm food...

and he knows it.....

pack with the pack, he realized he did not die and said the only thing he could

” I showed him , right ? “

So what Rush?
So what if Newt knew this question was coming right away?
So what that the media doesn't care about the whipping it got?
So what that John King thinks he's still the man and looks at this as a gold star? SO WHAT??
The point should be that Newt got standing ovations for not being the typical Republican whipping boy and had the balls to stand up for himself and for the party at whole. WHy do you wish to diminish or deflect that point?

To me, it doesn’t matter how the MSM feels or comes across. The fact of Newt’s performance is that what he did will move people to the polls in November. We need more of that kind of bravado.

While I like Rush and agree with him much of the time this is one instance in where I'm only in about 30-50% agreement with him on King v/s Newt last evening. Newt was right to go after King the way he did. Maybe the other candidates will start to find their spines, hopefully anyway.

THAT SAID (post #35), I'm glad and grateful that Rush doesn't mention Free Republic as a source of how he gauges (did I get that right, b9? I love you dearly! {^) where conservative sentiment lies.

IF Rush, or Levin, or Hannity, or any of the others, indicated that they frequent this website (if they do, though I know the wonderful Levin mentions it at times), then IMO, it would be overrun with frivolous posters from here to Christmas, people who'd never come here otherwise, but who post simply because they think maybe Rush or Levin will pay attention.

God bless Rush Limbaugh, and GODSPEED NEWT GINGRICH.
