The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread, Monday, January 23, 2012
The EiB Network ^ | 01/23/2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 01/23/2012 8:25:36 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).

“Removing Australian Open and recording Fear Factor.”

SHEESH!!!

I just checked TV guide again:

10-11 pm on NBC is “Rock Center with Brian Williams.” That IS definitely the debate, so tape that also.

I am going to do the same, i.e., tape Fear Factor and Rock Center

Also, I am going to tape MSNBC from 9-11pm, just in case.

We will probably get more accurate info between now and then.

This debate has been scheduled for weeks. What can be so difficult?

Red China has tons of engineers we don't so we should adopt what the Chi-Coms do..

guidelines at google, search for, china university cheating

Tons of how-to's, here's one

CHINA: Rampant cheating hurts research ambitions

Thanks, Rush! Let's go for it!

There's just one minor detail

The Real Problem With China

"For the United States, the No. 1 problem with China’s economy is probably intellectual property theft. Technology companies, for example, continue to notice Chinese government agencies downloading software updates for programs they have never bought, at least not legally . . . China’s leaders have reason to be nervous about all the barriers they have built. China’s elite, in government and business, are deeply concerned that their companies remain unable to create truly innovative products."

But they got hundreds of thousands (millions?) of engineers -- come on, people, let's do what the Chi-Coms do! Rush says so.

uh.. thanks again, Rush. I think. Are you pimping for Red China now?

Rush is disingenuous, and I believe he has to know it, when he spins Newt's criticism of Romney at Bain as "an attack on capitalism." For those who have the guts to listen to this -- the whole thing, all of it, every single second -- it is clear that Rush has betrayed the trust of his listeners.

I say, shame on Rush. Romney as a politician is a proven statist whom Rush refuses to condemn for being that proven statist. Odd, since Rush readily and plainly condemned McCain in '07 and '08. Romney is a statist through and through and we know it, yet Rush couches Romney's problem instead in terms of "not being able to articulate conservatism."

Hello, Rush? That's NOT why I, and I think I can safely say many of us here, reject Romney. We reject him because he's repeatedly, consistently demonstrated that he's a friggin' statist!!! All statism, all the time! In government, anyway. In business, something else entirely.

Yes, absolutely, Gingrich has been a statist at times, and having him in the White House would be a big risk. On the other hand, if Romney got the White House, there would be ZERO risk. Romney would certainly advance statism and more and bigger government as he always has advanced statism and more and bigger government.

Yet Rush assiduously avoids stating such a plain thing. Thomas Sowell, superior man that he is, had this to say about the differences between Romney and Gingrich -- Sowell has the guts to call a spade a spade.

Rush doesn't.

Rush thinks people like me are asking him to come out for Gingrich. Wrong -- I expect him, if he's the "voice of conservatism" he claims he is, to come out AGAINST Romney. It's the least he can do if he is what he says he is.

Romney has done NOTHING ZERO ZICH NADA to advance conservatism in America, while Gingrich, no matter WHAT else he has done, has done significantly more than any other candidate running to advance conservatism in America.

Gingrich blew it in how he articulated his criticism of Romney at Bain. RUSH MADE THAT MISTAKE TEN TIMES WORSE, to Romney's advantage. Rush screwed the pooch big-time, far more than Gingrich did.

Rush ain't what he used to be, except for one thing: he is mentally incapable of admitting he was wrong, even if it means sacrificing the best chance we've got to reverse the tide of statism in America.

Godspeed Newt Gingrich.

:) I’ve enjoyed our conversation. Provocative without rudeness and I agree, you and I more than likely share similar takes on the Constitution.

As someone who works as criminal appellant attorney, the Fourth Amendment is something I encounter a lot. I fear my articulation has suffered from my attempt to both work and FReep and for that I apologize. I do believe we should stick to original intent/strict constructionism, and am frustrated when we don’t however I am not a big fan of subverting the law and legal process to change the law. It really irritates me when people do it for a political stunt!!!!!

Is Rush therefore advocating we copy the Foxconn/Apple model, of all living in the same dorms, working 12+ hours a day and getting our daily serving of rice and pork from the factory?

What then happens to American icons like
the individual owning his white picket fence home
and apple pie?

Chopsticks!

Jim DeMint, Rick Santorum, The Club For Growth, Rush, Sean, Mark and so many Tea Party conservatives you can’t name them all disagree. Newt screwed up with his anti capitalist rhetoric and the Newtards just can’t accept it. Even Newt admitted on several occasions he shouldn’t have gone there.

But they got hundreds of thousands (millions?) of engineers -- come on, people, let's do what the Chi-Coms do!

One other "little" problem with the Chicom engineering system (also with some recent grads right here in USA):

If they don't have CTRL C / CTRL V or if the 'puter goes down, they are all but dead in the water.

Got no real math capability, any imagination they ever had was beaten out of 'em in 9th Grade and they can't hand write a legible, coherent simple sentence.

Shut off the Main Circuit Breaker and most of 'em couldn't even feed themselves, let alone design their way out of a paper bag.

Oh, yeah.....I'm an Old School Engineer, still got a sliderule and drafting equipment stored under the table.

"Rush thinks people like me are asking him to come out for Gingrich. Wrong -- I expect him, if he's the "voice of conservatism" he claims he is, to come out AGAINST Romney."

I too wish Rush would take a no Romney, no way, no how, not ever stance. But he needs to keep Gingrich's feet to the conservative fire.

[Rush is] trying not to bash any particular candidate, just as he won’t endorse.

I'd respect that in Rush if I believed it of him, but if I'm correctly remembering his words in in 2007 2008, including "If McCain wins the nomination, it's the end of the GOP," he BASHED McCain back then.

I think Romney amd Romney's supporters intimidate Rush's self-confidence in a way that neither McCain nor his supporters ever could.

I must be listening to different Rush program. I hear him calming the elite, telling them why we vote Newt, and that it isn’t Newt we like, but rather him standing up for conservative principles. That we have a long way to go, etc. and if the other candidates would just stand up, they could win too.

Yep. That's the show I heard until I turned it off halfway through, though my heart thrilled when Rush talked about Gingrich's passion and "love of country." But on balance ... I think you nailed it but good, Sister FReeper.

I disagree with Rush on this, it had nothing to do with articulating conservatism. It had to do with telling the enemy (msm) to go to hell in plain and simple terms that we could all understand. I don't think Rush is crazy about Newt, I wasn't either, I was for Cain, but have just been waiting for someone with guts that remain...I hate to say it, but I would vote for Newt, of those left, he is the best we have...I like Santorum but the guys in the middle east would eat him for breakfast...He may be good as president but as CIC he doesn't have it...

Would you rather be sitting across the table with Santorum or Newt when it came to international talks...

Rush has been off his game for the past couple of months. Have heard him disagree with some things he has said in the past.

The loss of a child must be pure torture. I remember Britt Hume discussing the loss of his son when he made some sort of religious comment a while back. I don't think he blames Newt for his son's death. Hume probably does not like how Newt does political business. I'm not a Washington Insider. From my POV, I thought Newt was railroaded at the time. I was mad that Newt gave up so easily.
