Recent Rush-isms

These are GREAT so I'm reposting from a REALLY cool site I've recently found called Frugal Cafe Blog Zone. And of course, the source is Rush Limbaugh himself...

... and people wonder why Rush has so many listeners to his daily radio show

Random quotes from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, week of August 28, 2009:

  • “Honor Ted Kennedy by putting his picture on the $100,000 bill. With hyperliberal policies, we’re going to end up with hyperinflation.”
  • “There’s actually a piece at the Huffing and Puffington Post on what Mary Jo Kopechne would have thought of Ted’s career. The last line: ‘Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.’ Are we to believe now that liberal young women like to die for the cause of advancing Kennedys’ careers?”
  • “The truth is, the health care plan is collapsing under the weight of its own undeliverable promises and the fact that people have lost trust in the president of the United States. I mean, he tells us that doctors want to sever limbs for profit.”
  • “That is sick. Folks, that’s just not normal. I’m sorry. You’re in a car, it goes off a bridge, a woman dies, you don’t report it and you try to get out of it, and you want to hear jokes about it for the rest of your life?”
  • “Senator Kennedy is beloved for one reason: He used the government to take money from people that work and give it to people that don’t.”
  • “Sad news today, according to the latest Gallup poll, ladies and gentlemen: 19% more Americans are racists. Well, Obama’s approval number was 69% shortly after the Immaculation, and now it’s dropped to 50%.”
  • “I want to revise and extend my remarks on Ted Kennedy, man of the people. He certainly was a man of the people — especially if they had big boobs.”
  • “By the way, did you know that Obama’s buddy, Bill Ayers, dedicated one of his books to Sirhan Sirhan? Did you know this? You had forgotten that, but I hadn’t forgotten because I have a flawless memory.”
  • “E-mail: ‘Rush, many of us want to know what specific steps could be taken to take control away from the insurance companies and return it directly to the patients and providers.’ Very simple: Pay for it yourself!”
  • “The minute the Democrats started talking about health care as a right… I mean, that was the death knell. Something cannot be a right if the government can take it away from you.”
  • “The Alinsky trick is to use words and language that fit within the experience of your audience, the people that you’re trying to screw — and we’re being screwed. No, we’ve already been screwed, we’re just trying to prevent the pregnancy.”
  • “The death panel phrase Sarah Palin came up with is precisely controversial because it was accurate. It helped people understand exactly what was in store.”
  • “If Obama cared about your lot in life, he would yank his stimulus plan and his health care plan, and he would enact across-the-board tax cuts.”
  • “All these people in media are saying, ‘Oh, it’s so horrible for Obama, this great young president, he had so much potential.’ But it is Barack Obama himself who is directly responsible for the problems that confront him today. Like every other paranoid schizophrenic, his problems are self-created.”
  • “Just as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were the foundation of this country, nationalized health care is the foundation on which all of that founding vanishes.”
  • “Obama’s not looking at this opposition and saying, ‘Wow, I’m really out of touch with what the American people want.’ No, he’s looking at this and saying, ‘I’m going to have a tougher time ramming this down their throats! Damn Limbaugh! Damn talk radio!’”“Where is the specific constitutional language authorizing the president and Congress to dictate — yes, dictate — our medical and health care decisions? Is there any Founding Father who would have imagined such a power exercised by the government they were establishing?”
  • “I’ll tell you what else, folks — our beloved president is a laughingstock around the world. And if you don’t like that, I’ll say he’s ineffective. He’s just a hapless little college kid. God, what happened to us?”
  • “The Democrat Party is going to go down the drain and toilet before the country does.”
  • “The left in this country is not made up of thinkers. It’s made up feelers; it’s made up of emotional self-loathers. People that don’t like themselves and they don’t like the country. They’re unhappy with their lot in life and they want everybody else to be miserable. And the only way to make everybody “equal” is to make everybody miserable. You have to spread misery around to make everybody equal. They want equality of outcomes. ”
  • “Fascism is where the private sector still owns what it owns, but the politicians run it — and fascism is exactly what we’re getting under Barack Obama.”
  • “You want to hear the most ridiculous headline of the day? Here it is from The Politico: ‘Obama Vows Further Deficit Cutting.’ When are these people in the media going to understand this is not a game?”
  • “Tell me, is your life better off now than it was a year ago? After all of these rescues began? After all of these bailouts?”
  • “Snerdley, is this mark a new development in my career? To be singled out in a rap song by the famous rapper Jay-Z? I guess it is. I guess this means I’ve made it.”
  • “Obama says he ‘brought our economy back from the brink’ on the very day he announces deficits of $9 trillion over the next ten years. Good Lord. How about your job? How is that hope and change working for you?”
  • “If all you do is use the government to take money away from people who work and give it to people who don’t, you are compassionate! You are caring, and you are virtuous, and you can go into La Brasserie in Washington with your buddy Chris Dodd and start having waitress sandwiches.”
  • “I’ve been looking at the health care bill, and I’ve found two things that will not be rationed: abortions and assisted suicides. Well, it’s not a laughing matter, but sometimes that’s all you can do.”
  • “These new unemployment projections ought to serve as an indictment on this administration; this is stunning information! To all of you who trusted Obama to help the economy: How’s that hope and change working for you?”

    I appreciate the kind words, and I'm glad that we're in there blogging together. Hopefully the Democratic Party is going to implode. If people can't see what's being done to America, then they simply don't want to see it. Kind of like THE MATRIX.

    Here's to hoping we can still save your nephew before he refuses to be unplugged. I'd love to sign a book if you purchase one, but well..NZ is a bit out of my way. I think you'll enjoy it.

    Let's keep the pressure on.
