Rush Limbaugh: ‘I Went To
Bed Last Night Thinking
We’ve Lost The Country’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 2:52:31 PM

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh offered a dire prognosis for the Republican party following last night’s defeat of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Limbaugh said that it is difficult for any candidate to run a successful campaign against “Santa Claus.” He went on to say that his last thought as he went to bed on election night was the Republican party had “lost the country.” Limbaugh said that he thought Romney and his family would have been great for the nation, but his recipe for a turnaround – hard work – is no longer accepted by

Rush has always been optimistic in the worst of times. He sure wasn't today.

I went online to look up 2012 election numbers in Illinois, where Obama’s vote total dropped by 506,556 from 2008. In Chicago and Cook County alone they dropped by 193,736. The problem is that Romney surpassed McCain’s totals by only 56,378 statewide. This baffles me. This means that 450,000 or so voters who voted for Obama in 2008 just disappeared and did not vote for Romney. Those 450,000 voters were nowhere near enough to turn Illinois, but where in the heck did they go?

Wish he would spend less time doing commercials during his on-air time. Those spots are getting very, very annoying. One other thought: Rush has been out of touch for about ten years now. He didn't have any idea how bad the entitlement culture has become until last night. The Libs have succeeded, and to add insult to injury, he didn't tell us it was time to panic. He is now panicking. We should be too.

#1 the voters didn't disappear. It was that ACORN was fully functioning back then and so many dead people and fictional characters voted in 08.
I think it is worse that folks voted for the idiot boy than that they stole the election.
Either way of course we are *_(*)*)_(*.

Well, when you have been on the front lines of American conservatism fighting for as long as he has, it's understandable that sunny optimism was hard to find this morning.

Stop trying to pander to Mexicans and blacks, Jews and homosexuals, unwed mothers and welfare scum. Nominate a conservative candidate who will not compromise. When we run as ourselves, we do better.

Rush stated very specifically on one of his shows that he does not trade stocks or invest in the stock market. He didn't say what he does invest in if anything.
If you don't like what stock traders pay in taxes then talk to congress. The traders are just following the law.

I got to listen to bits and pieces of Rush today. I started out terribly angry at him for feeding us a false optimism. (God, I hate being lied to)...but as I listened to him I realized he was asking aloud the same questions I was asking.
How do the Republicans attract minorities? Answer is, we don't. We don't have anything to give them that the dems haven't already given them. All the Repubs have to offer is a chance at productive, satisfying work with personally earned success. No way that beats the free stuff the dems have to give. As long as it lasts. Then this country will be torn apart with blood and thunder and there won't be an America, the shining city on the hill. What an unimaginable loss.

Some of this grows wearisome: Let’s all attack Rush for being optimistic! Now let’s attack Rush for NOT being optimistic!

Conservatism is not an easy sell to natural born socialists. To this point, there really has not been any hard price to pay for the expanding dependency class. People are willing to pay $4/gallon for gas if they get EIC in return. It’s only when there is no gas that people get upset. The “fiscal cliff” is nothing but a scare tactic that will never actually happen. If it does, Congress will raise the debt ceiling and move on, because USA is too big to fail. $16T in debt is such an incomprehensible number that it literally has no meaning at all. No one could pay such a sum, and it’s clear that no one intends to.

That’s the mentality at work. There are very few adults left, so by all means pounce on the messenger.

I don't care what anyone says, many of these polls were rigged by incredibly long early voting, voting with no I.D., electronic machines that magically default select the Dem candidate, etc., etc.

After the 2010 THUMPING the Dems took, I can't believe that that many abandoned fiscal responsibility to reward the biggest debt spender in human history. There are just TOO many things not adding up here. I'm waiting for someone at the voting machine companies to come forward and admit they rigged the election, South American style.

Obama won because the Takers outnumbered the Makers in 2012. And this will not change until Takers run out of other people's money. They need to get to rock bottom before they learn that they are not entitled to the reward of people's efforts.

Neither Rush, Warren Buffet or any other investor should pay any more than a moderate capital gains tax on INVESTMENT INCOME!

You see, for it to be investment income you would have to, at some previous time, have earned it and paid the full tax rate on it. AS EARNINGS.

If you try to tax investment income at a 35% you end up discouraging investments in our country.

Obama loves it. love the feel of the lie as he tells it right out in front of God and everybody knowing he has thousands of followers and media worshipers to repeat the lie over and over, and act holier than thou against anyone who points out that capital gains investments have already been taxed.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
