RUSH: Look, folks, I really don´t like being a "see, I told you so." I mean, I know I do it a lot ´cause it happens a lot, and I used to even have a little jingle with it. "Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah! See, I Told You So," because it used to be somewhat unique. Now it´s not difficult at all. It is important, however. I do, when relevant, like to remind you of things that you´ve heard in the past on this program that you may have forgotten, things that I´ve said. Here´s a story that leads into my point.
Comments: MORE Fallout from the Go Along to Get Along Gang in the Republican Party.
This just shows how easily manipulated our politicians are. They are stupid! Perception is NOT reality. The only reason Obama won was not just because of lo-fo voters. There was a LOT of election fraud, there was a LOT of lies and propaganda that were never countered, etc. But the biggest problem is that the Dems know how to shape perception and obviously they not only manipulate the lo-fo voters but the opposition party politicians too! We have elected a bunch of idiots and wimps and they all need to be replaced. We need to get involved at the lower levels and work our way up to influence our party. We need to stop letting clueless idiots decide for us.
First we have to win at the local and state level. From there we have to take on the establishment national party. ALL our representative and senators are not gutless whims, just 90% of them. We will always have to put up with a few weak sisters. A strong conservative R just will never be elected in some states and parts of the country.
Addicts will never vote to cut off their drug supply. The simple purchase of ammo is a far cry from actually using it. The sissified will succumb when the ATF agents come knocking at their doors as confiscation begins.
I agree with #3 and #7. Frankly, I am sick and tired of all the gnashing of teeth and gloom and doom and whining about "dumb" republicans. IMO, the only thing "melting away" is Rush Limbaugh´s audience. I was a loyal member of his audience from 1988 up to the last election when he threw everything but the kitchen sink at Mitt Romney for months, just so he could say "I told you so". Okay Rush, you win, we lose. Enough is enough. Why not try to encourage our Congress members rather than joining the old circular firing squad with the demonrats to undermine and defeat our OWN party? Good Grief!
The Obama administration, in an 11th-hour change just before the holiday break,announced a major exemption in ObamaCare that will let people who lost coverage and are struggling to get a new plan sign up for bare-bones policies. The move Thursday to allow potentially hundreds of thousands of people to sign up for "catastrophic" coverage plans was blasted by the insurance industry as a shift that would cause "tremendous instability.” The administration downplayed the sudden change, saying they expected it to impact fewer than 500,000 people. Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said, "This is a common sense clarification of the law. For
Ethan Krupp, the little man who played “Pajama Boy” in a widely-mocked Obamacare ad, was accused in college of racism and anti-Semitism. Krupp, an Organizing for Action (OFA) content writer who became the face of progressive America when he sipped cocoa and smirked while wearing a onesie pajama suit in a recent Obamacare ad, is also a failed comedy writer whose work was not appreciated in his own time. Krupp was the editor of Wisconsin’s college-town “Madison Misnomer” as recently as 2010, noting that “Nothing is ever accomplished” at editorial meetings and “It probably won’t last more than another year.” But while
Have you heard about “Pajama Boy”? He’s in an ad tweeted yesterday by a political nonprofit associated with President Obama, wearing what appears to be a plaid onesie while cradling a hot beverage and looking to one side through arched eyebrows. The point of the ad is to promote Obamacare among young adults. “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance,” says the ad copy.
Iran: Protecting President Obama from embarrassment precludes protecting America from nuclear terror. That´s why Harry Reid is blocking a bipartisan coalition of senators from voting to increase sanctions on Iran. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., hit the detonator on the head Wednesday when he pointed out on the Senate floor that his Democratic counterpart "can´t stomach a vote on Iran sanctions" because "he knows the administration would lose that vote decisively, and he knows that many members of his own caucus would vote alongside Republicans to strengthen those sanctions." Reid was pushing through a defense spending bill under floor rules that
Last month we told you about John Beale, the Environmental Protection Agency employee who bilked taxpayers out of almost $900,000 by pretending to be a secret agent. Telling EPA colleagues that he was a CIA operative, Beale was paid for long absences while on imaginary missions for "Langley." Now there is a disturbing new question about John Beale that goes to the heart of the EPA´s mission. What was he doing when he actually showed up for work? In September, Beale pleaded guilty to theft of government property and agreed to pay $886,186 in restitution and to forfeit another $507,207. On
Redistribution: Imagine lower-income families watching their incomes drop while their tax burden goes up. Patently unfair, right? Yet it actually happened under President Obama. According to a Tax Foundation analysis of new IRS data, the bottom half of income-tax filers paid 36% more in taxes in 2011 than they did in 2010 — even though their incomes barely budged. The top half, in contrast, saw their tax burden climb only 9%. The average tax rate paid by the bottom half has climbed every year under Obama, going from 2.35% in 2009 to 3.13% in 2011. Viewed another way, the share of "adjusted gross
There are all sorts of time bombs embedded within ObamaCare. Will we force doctors to treat millions of new Medicaid patients who are signing up for services that can be only partially reimbursed? How will the IRS collect penalties from millions of off-the-books youth who choose not to buy coverage? For those who chose not to buy health insurance in the past, will these newly insured really follow through on their initial sign-ups with steady monthly premium payments? If not, how will we collect what they owe? Will all those who lost their coverage have enough money to buy the costlier
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
A&E broke its silence on Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay comments late Wednesday. The cable network announced Robertson is off the hit show for the time being. The network issued the following statement to EW: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
President Barack Obama sent Russia a clear message about its treatment of gays and lesbians with who he is — and isn’t — sending to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Billie Jean King will be one of two openly gay athletes in the U.S. delegation for the opening and closing ceremonies, Obama announced Tuesday. For the first time since 2000, however, the U.S. will not send a president, former president, first lady or vice president to the Games. Russia has come under fierce criticism for passing national laws banning “gay propaganda.” Though the White House did not specifically address
The gay and lesbian rights group GLAAD is slamming ´Duck Dynasty´ patriarch Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine, and challenging the show´s network, A&E, to take action against its most popular star. In a wide-ranging interview, Robertson shared his thoughts on homosexuality and religion. After stating in very graphic terms his preference for heterosexual sex over homosexual sex, Robertson launched into more thoughts about homosexuality and sinning. “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong... Sin becomes fine,” he said.
Yes, she really said it. On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live Tuesday, in a brief discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, “We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn´t say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah” (video follows with transcript and commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
Everyone is doing thoughtful year-end pieces on President Obama. Writers and reporters agree he’s had his worst year ever. I infer from most of their essays an unstated but broadly held sense of foreboding: There’s no particular reason to believe next year will be better, and in fact signs and indications point to continued trouble. I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration, its ability to perform the most fundamental duties of executive management. One reason I worry is that I frequently speak with people who interact with the White
O ne year removed from re-election, President Obama´s approval rating has sunk to the lowest level of his presidency. Furthermore, Obama´s popularity among the Democratic Party base — whose rejuvenated support proved crucial last November — took a huge hit this past year. Only 54 percent of self-described liberals "very strongly" approve of Obama´s job performance, according to a Pew survey released this week. That´s down from an all-time high of nearly 90 percent, and a significant decline from the 73 percent who strongly approved of the president back in June. Why the steep drop? Well, the first year of Obama´s second term
