    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Did I not tell you yesterday, did I not make the case yesterday, and today it's borne out to be true. All of this inevitability of Barack Obama is manufactured. It started in The Politico, with two guys named John Harris and Jim VandeHei. They're the ones who got this whole ballgame running on, "Obama's inevitable. Obama got the great bounce." And, folks, it's all phony. There's nothing to it. Even the CNN poll that's out that's got Obama up six. It's a joke of a poll. The Democrat sample in this poll is absolutely unbelievably high....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Last week I asked a stupid question, and it took me a couple of hours on Friday to figure it out. I've been hoping I wouldn't forget it all weekend. And here we are, and I remember what it was. The stupid question I asked was: "Why are the teachers in Chicago going on strike?" The answer is very simple: So Obama can solve it as a campaign issue. That's why they're on strike. It won't be long before we hear Moochelle say that he's up late at night on the campaign trail practically crying, reading letters...

    “We’re doomed,” Limbaugh said this afternoon on his top-rated talk show. “If Obama’s re-elected, it will happen. There’s no IF about this. And it’s gonna be ugly. It’s gonna be gut-wrenching, but it will happen. The country’s economy is going to collapse if Obama is re-elected. I don’t know how long: a year and a half, two years, three years.” Limbaugh is expecting California to go belly up first, setting off a chain of financial calamities. “California is going to declare bankruptcy and you know what Obama will do? He’ll go to states like Texas or Arizona, Florida to bail...

    TAMPA, August 31, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – While political observers watched Rick Santorum, Paul Ryan, and Marco Rubio, the Republican National Committee pushed through new rules that could change the face of the party for some time – including one rule that Rush Limbaugh said was designed to freeze pro-life Christians out of the GOP. Under rules proposed by election lawyer Ben Ginsberg, who said he was acting on behalf of the Romney campaign, the presidential candidate who wins a state primary would get to select all state delegates to the convention and “disavow” anyone who meets his disapproval. The delegates,...

    RUSH: There's an AP story here today. This rules change what everybody thinks got solved yesterday. Let me briefly, as I understand this, tell you what's going on. There was an attempt, by the rules committee yesterday, to change the rules of the convention in determining who the delegates to the convention are from the various states and to strip away all of the BS. The purpose of the rules change, which was orchestrated by Ben Ginsberg -- he's working for Romney, but it's the establishment GOP. The express purpose is to eliminate any influence of Tea Party activists or...

    Rush just blew the whistle on the Repub Convention. Here is the official line: "Obama is a nice guy who just doesn't know what he's doing." Wow! I don't know about you, but that forceful denunciation just rocked me back into my seat when I heard it! Also according to Rush, one of the messages of the Dem Convention will be that Romney is a monster who murders people who have cancer. I know, I know. Can't put the edge of a ruler between the space separating the two messages. Combined with the trouble from the storm, we are looking...

    August 9, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Radio host Rush Limbaugh this week said that Democrats should take a harder look at their own sources of funding before they criticize the GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney for making his fortune as co-founder of asset management firm Bain Capital. Rush Limbaugh “So they say now in the Huffington Post that Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, way way back when it was originally founded, was seeded with money from Latin America deaths quads,” said the conservative radio guru August 8. “Well let me ask you a question. What’s the difference in that and the Democrats...

His wife still has insurance, though, from her employer, Saver's Thrift Store. A year later, Romney formally leaves Bain, and it's that year, 2002 or perhaps 2003, Soptic tells CNN, that his wife leaves her job...
