Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Monday, 9/20/10
Student NOTES from Institute seniors, not 'official'
Opening: This stuff isn't going to work (witch comment).
Seg#1: Is TOTUS tweaking media and Rush Limbaugh?
We know more about Christine O'Donnell than POTUS Obama. For crying out loud, Obama dabbled in cocaine when young. Can we talk about the Democrat Party and the lives they have destroyed: AGW Global Warming Hoax, Marxist Economy, Obamacare. What about those?
Obama dabbled in Saul-Alinski-ism. ((Clip-Obama: We hold these truths to be self-evident: Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.)) He leaves the Creator out. He doesn't mention where these rights come from. Endowed? By whom? The government? Where are his values sourced from? Teleprompter?
Comments like this are what lead people to question his faith. He could have mentioned Allah. He could have credited himself. From his book ((reading: they are endowed by their Creator, etc., they are our common creed. We are born into the world free and it can't be taken away by the state. It sets our course each and every day.)) Is Teleprompter tweaking media to leave it out?
The Values Conference would notice. Is Teleprompter laughing? I come down on the side "this is a tweak", but who know? We are talking about the President of the United States, not a community organizer (or both). This is not common.
There is probably a WH pool over who will go nuts first.
>> >> >> And I am leading in the pool.
Obama rhetoric is for Democrats to have values but they ignore his words.
Seg#2: RINOs stuck in mud, pool of power and are slow to wake up
Good news folks, the 'Recession' is over according to economists. It lasted 18 months, from Dec 2007 ending June 2009, the longest slump since WW II. Is it better? If the recession is over, when did the Depression begin?
DbM says there is rift in the Republican party but look at the Democrats. They are expected to lose historic number of seats in the House and may lose the Senate and Democrat candidates are running from Obama. Sept 15 letter of 31 Democrats to Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer begging to extend the Tax Cuts.
Obama is even going to church now; he gives speeches and people refuse to show up. They have to bus them in.
"We can't be a majority party if we can't appeal across the spectrum", says Olympia Snow. So will they welcome in Conservatives? Lisa Murkowski shows it is all about her power not supporting the primary race winner. The political elites will still 'own' Congress and run the show even if Reagan Republicans win six new seats. How dare we the people intervene in their games? Who do we think we are when we lead to record levels of votes for Conservative Republicans? They are exposing who they really are.
Elites will continue to fight it. They will continue to smear. Watch what happens right after the elections when Conservatives win and try to reign in Elites. "Do it our way, slowly and surely."
>>> Republican elites join in The Ruling Class whisper-campaign.
S#3: Against a Marxist-Democrat, O'Donnell is closer than Brown was
Precious Independents are 20%, between 40% Republicans and 40% Democrats, some consultants erroneously believe. They claim they can swing the Independents. It bugs me when 'Moderates' are thought to be smarter than anyone when they can't even make up their minds.
It is better to do like Reagan and try to convince Independents and Democrats. Put forth your positive Conservative principles. On FNC ((Clip-Krauthammer: I would like to see Senator DeMint help elect Christine O'Donnell. Show me.)) Karl Rove said the same thing. Murphy too. Is there an elite-Republican talking point memo going out? Did they all think of this on their own?
MA Scott Brown had more ground to make up than DE Christine O'Donnell does at this point against the Marxist Democrat. What if we had applied the Buckley Rule on Scott Brown?
The America people (country class) are beginning to reject all of the intermediaries telling us how to think! We don't need priests and mullahs to tell us who the best candidates are.
We used to think we are all on the same team; now we find out that the 'starters' on the team really don't want you in the game. And when you, the bench, get in the game, the starters want the other team to win.
>>>>>> It is time for a timeout.
Segment#4: Elite Ruling Class will not just roll over and change
When Chris Shays or Arlen Specter wins, we are supposed to 'get on board', and we did. Castle hasn't endorsed O'Donnell, has he? Lisa Murkowski rebels. McCain wins and we all stay loyal. Except for Colin Powell who endorsed Obama. "I have all kinds of illegals working in my house; I bet you do too." This is the "ideal Republican candidate"?
Colin Powell is exactly why we have a Tea Party movement, more like him.
Caller: We are all paying attention now. We are done with Elites.
They are angry and knew it was coming (polls). They are not going to just roll over and change their ways. Watch fireworks in January. It is Washington vs the rest of the country. They just waited during eight years of Reagan.
Elitist Republicans will try to make us believe they have 'seen the light' but what makes them elitists isn't going to change overnight. DbM/Democrats will try to do everything they can to get Republicans back into the minority.
The royal family never accepted Princess Diana. She was immensely more popular than they were, worldwide.
>>> Democrats working w/O'Donnell will be less popular w/[kookbase].
The Ruling Class will not like working with Country Class freshmen.
Seg#5: UK may now have company checks sent to gov't first.
They will deduct what they want and then send the rest to workers.
>>>> I am not surprised. We approach that in ObamaNation.
Seg#6: DbM/Obama act as if all money belongs to The State
(Theme Music) Can I point out: Isn't it amazing how DbM hated Karl Rove and now they love him? Is he the State-Media rising star now? Why is that?
Rasmussen has 67% saying they are better informed than ten years ago, even as newspapers and cable except Fox struggle to survive. Just 8% consider themselves less informed.
Fascinating! Once we stop depending on Old Media, people get smarter.
I was not making it up: UK wants all companies to send the checks to the government to ensure the right tax is applied, "Pay as you earn". The UK will then wire what is left to accounts of the workers. These are Leftists and if it doesn't happen soon, they will just keep working on it.
In the case of a dispute, how long will negotiations take? And will the citizen ever win. They assume, like some in USA, all money belongs to gov't.
((Reading: There is another version of the Republican Party waiting to emerge.)) ((Clip-Mike-Bloomberg: There is a party in there wanting to come out. We can't be 'anti-immigration' because this country runs on immigration.)) We are not anti-immigration, just against illegals.
((Clip-Powell: You have probably seen illegals at your house.)) We are told this is wisdom and intelligence you and I can only dream of. Then he uses the clique, "we need to bring them out of the darkness." If that's how you build the country, why stop there? David Gregory then asks if he is disappointed in Obama.
((Clip-Powell: He has to focus now on governing, not campaigning. He has to get above it: yes, Mr President, they will kick you like a dog, treat you like a dog, but that is the nature of the [Oval Office]. Tea Party people are going after you on nonsense.)) There you have the wisdom from on high.
Colin Powell says Tea Party people ought to be going after President Obama on policy, not nonsense. We are not going after Obama on nonsense. Powell is said to be brilliant? He is using clichés .
>>> We were told that Colin Powell was the ideal Republican.
Rush contrast the Valery Plame nonsense, (blaming Scooter Libby), when
everybody knew it was Richard Armitage who leaked her nothingness.
Segment#7: Discussions with angry or smart Independents
Why did they vote for Obama, hoping he would change?
Caller-Independent: Ideology is important now. Power corrupts.
You believe there is a Democrat that will hold your values? [No] You clearly are a conservative Republican; why stay 'Independent'? [Don't want the attachment.]
Caller: You are independent from Democrats and Republicans.
OK, thanks for the call. Some Republicans don't like me.
Caller-LA: I switched after Jimmy Carter; Reagan was the only president worth anything; 2006 mid-term Bush took us for granted. Now, we're Independent.
>>> Relax, Linda, I'm not even talking about you as 'Independent'.
Seg#8: Obama Townhall softball questions turned into hardball
((Clip: Mr President, is this my new reality? Beans and hotdogs?)) Meanwhile President Obama and Moochelle are living high on the hog. ((Clip-Obama: There are a whole host of things we have put in place to make your life better; we are moving in the right direction.)) So no matter how bad you think your life is, we are moving to tax you more. You got suckered in by my clean articulate manner, he is thinking.
((Clip-on-student: I can't find a job and can't make mortgage payments. I was inspired by your message but that is dying away. Is the American Dream dead for me.)) It translates to this: why haven't you paid my student loan?
I guess Teleprompter only expected 'softball' questions. The first one to ask a question was a government worker. ((Clip-Obama: Millionaires would get a check of $100,000 and I would benefit too. We are the least likely to spend it.)) No, nobody is going to get a check of $100,000. Nobody has tax cuts on the table, only extending Bush rates. Obama is talking about raising them. His objective is not economic growth. In no way does he want to help those questioning him.
((Clip-woman: I am deeply disappointed. We were promised Change.)) This woman knows it isn't getting any better. She is a Stimulus recipient with a guaranteed pension and healthcare. Obama stammers.
>>> Obama implies it would be even worse without his measures.
Segment#9: The Magic is gone?
((Clip-Obama: some think I have been too soft on Wall Street.)) Engines of profits are slowing down at wall street companies. ((Reading: layoffs)) This will result in lower revenue for NYC.
He is asked, what will you do if these activists are elected? ((Obama rambling)) The Deficit was going down and Obama has broken the bank. Every one of his answers is a blatant lie.
If Obama Economics works, why are Democrats not for your Agenda.
>>>>> If tax cuts got us into this mess,
>>> why are Democrats pressing for extensions?
S#10: Citizens are rising up and leaving Democrats/Obama.
>>>> They are not buying the tax hikes Obama is peddling.
Segment#11: Revenue went up with JFK, Reagan and Bush tax cuts
(Music) Going back to Obama's sound-bite, so insulting to intelligence. Focus on the last one. ((Clip-Obama: America has a healthful suspicion of gov't. We came out from England. The problem in the Tea Party debate is they mis-identify who the culprit is: unpaid for war, tax cuts not paid for. What would Tea Party do?)) Get rid of you and Democrats. Tax cuts not paid for? You do not pay for tax cuts. Obama thinks all US earning money is his.
Under JFK, Reagan and Bush, revenue went up with tax cuts.
Every dollar you earn is yours, your property. Democrats look at taxation as class envy punishment. Two wars not paid for? Nothing is paid for because we have no money now. SocSec, Medicare, War on Poverty, all are not paid for.
The Tea Party exists because we are on a Deficit death watch. You are not paying for a damn thing, Mr President, we are. We are in hock for generations and you blame the people? This is why citizens are rising up and abandoning this delusional president. Tax rates are not lower.
He keeps taking care of his union buddies and now is concerned about the budget? It is the precursor to tax increases. In December his Deficit Reduction Committee will give their answer. We will pony up to pay for what doesn't work. Nothing is being paid for was we didn't pay for tax cuts?
>>> Our economic engine gave hope around the world, before Obama.
Seg#12: Rush updates his "Top Ten GOP Moderate Moments" See web
What a fraud his whole argument is: tax cuts are not being paid for? They are not paying for anything. DbM focus instead on Christine O'Donnell. Sarah Palin tells her to not react and waste her time. Just connect with DE voters.
Caller: Powell confuses. How did he know he has illegal aliens? Is he guilty for racial profiling? This is his 'Macaca' moment.
DbM will not challenge anything he says but treats him with proper respect. Our Archives have the top ten GOP moderate moments.
Caller: I'm waiting for Obama to say, "We have to stay the course."
After people tell him how bad it is, he says it is getting better.
All during the Bush era, DbM/Democrats told us it was worse than Hoover. Why don't they note this now? It is clearly worse than under Bush.
Caller-Black-lady: I didn't vote Obama but principles. Colin Powell lies.
>>> Thank you very, very much. [Rush ran out of time.]
Segment#13: Yes, I study Pelosi witchcraft, don't you
"I don't hire illegal immigrants", is all Powell will say now. He says he has other people to do that, but he eventually pays them. He sees them at your house also, he is certain. It's OK, from Mount DC.
Caller-WA: 1999 O'Donnell witchcraft comment. Rove attacks. Why?
I don't know. Clearly, Karl Rove has become more popular. Before, Liberals wanted to 'frog-march' him out of the White House.
The real question should be, "Why was she on the Bill Maher Show, anyway?" She said she looked into witchcraft and didn't like it. Hillary Rodham Clinton had séances and Obama blamed Nancy Reagan, getting it wrong. During the Lewinsky era, Hillary Rodham Clinton was seeking solace, and guidance from Elinore Roosevelt. FDR was doing what Democrat presidents do.
>>> O'Donnell should say, "Yes, I study Pelosi witchcraft, don't you?"
Seg#14: Many Democrat leaders know that O'Donnell is going to win
My question to Colin Powell: "are there not Americans there to do the work?"
You can still see the Constitutional discussions from Hillsdale College:
www.RushForHillsdale.com You can still watch, for a period of time.
Scientists, like those that study Global Warming, find that men in bars who are looking for a short-term date look more at curvaceous bodies. Who knew? They look at a pretty face and intelligence when they try to find a wife.
Caller: Delaware voters should look at this great woman. Scott Brown poised nude in Cosmo, right? It as his resume enhancer. Women would be blamed.
Bigger point on double-standard is Democrat compassionate Liberals are attacking the women. They joined in the chorus against those who accused Clinton. Nobody comes to their defense.
I like Plain's advice via Twitter: stay on point with DE voters. There is nothing to prove to the inside-the-beltway media types.
>>> Dirty little secret: Many Democrats know O'Donnell is going to win.
Seg#15: O'Donnell is accused of trying to look like Sarah Palin
If you are an attractive Conservative woman, then DbM will really go after you.
>>> It is open season on attractive Conservative Republican women.
Closing: See you tomorrow, folks.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Blind Justice"
A year ago, Amazon, the online bookseller and retail operation, announced a win-win plan to provide selected universities with their Kindle electronic reader. Princeton, Arizona State, and Case Western Reserve wanted to find out if the e-reader would be less expensive and more efficient for students than traditional textbooks. It wasn't a large deal; Princeton, for instance, only used the Kindle in three courses, with a total of 51 students. It was voluntary; the students could opt out at any time.
This didn't sit well with everybody. Although the Kindle has a text-to-speech function that "reads" books aloud, a sighted person is still needed to start the device. Activist groups, including the National Federation of the Blind, protested, accusing the universities of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act -- the protest went all the way to the Justice Department.
Obama's Civil Rights Division has now reached a settlement with the offenders. (I guess other electronic readers are fully accessible to the blind, but universities cannot use them.) This is the same Justice Department and Civil Rights Division that turned a blind eye to videos of the New Black Panther Party intimidating white voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election, because, according to insiders they will not prosecute black-on-white offenses.
There's an old cliché about the blind leading the blind -- but we're not being led by the blind. America's now being led by liberal morons, who are also world-class bigots.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"You know where the greatest repository of greed in the world is? It's in Washington, DC, and it's in everybody who lives off the pile of money in there every day."
"Snerdley had an interesting observation: American women, particularly newswomen, when they head over to these Islamic countries, they observe every sexist, bigoted custom. And in our country, they tell us to go to hell."
"Now, if it's true that Michelle Obama thinks her job is 'hell', this would go a long way in explaining her endless string of lavish vacations and parties."
"Look at me as the defensive coordinator for the conservative movement."
"Christine O'Donnell of 'she can't win' fame has now raised over a million dollars, which means, ladies and gentlemen, that Christine O'Donnell is not in debt now -- unlike some of our friends and their websites."
"Given the vicious attacks on O'Donnell by the partisan political operatives in the media and the partisan political operatives on the Republican Party side, how is it possible Christine O'Donnell is this close?"
"Just yesterday Christine O'Donnell had 50 grand on tap, was down 25 points, and had no prayer. Today she's got over a million dollars and she's only down 11 -- in one day! Don't tell us we can't win!"
"We're not talking about purity here. We're talking about loyalty. We're talking about right versus wrong. If you're for Obama, become a Democrat. Don't tarnish our brand."
"I resent this attention being focused on independents and moderates. I can't stand so much money and attention being spent on people who won't have the guts to tell us what they think."
"Obama put Vice President Bite Me in charge of making sure Porkulus money would be spent wisely, but almost a million dollars of the money was spent teaching people how to wash genitals."
"By the way, Mr. Brown, with all due respect, if it weren't for conservatives and Tea Party activists nationwide raising money for you, you wouldn't be in the Senate."

Democrats often take comfort from the fact that, while Sarah Palin commands the allegiance of millions of Americans, poll data suggest that even more disapprove of her. Perhaps so. Yet, when matched head-to-head against President Obama, most voters say it is Palin who better represents their own views:
Fifty-two percent (52%) of Likely U.S. Voters say their own views are closer to Sarah Palin's than they are to President Obama's, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Just 40% say their views are closer to the president's than to those of the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate.
Among voters not affiliated with either party, 59 percent say Palin represents their views better than Obama.
True, to describe someone as "better than Obama" may be damning with faint praise nowadays. But that fact, too, can hardly give the Dems comfort. www.PowerLineBlog.com
Stop the illegal alien student bailout now: DREAM Act Senate phone list; Update: Vote scheduled Tuesday 2:15pm
By Michelle Malkin • September 20, 2010 05:10 AM
Melt the phones
Last Friday, I dissected Harry Reid's cap-and-gown illegal alien amnesty — i.e., the DREAM Act amendment to the defense authorization bill up for a vote this week.
Last Wednesday, I warned you about the shamnesty Republicans who have voted and sponsored past DREAM Act nightmares.
The open-borders lobby is out in full force to get the illegal alien student bailout passed. The NYT this morning pleads with the McCain/Soros Republican wing of the party to come back to the DREAM Act fold. Alinsky's avenging angels are pounding the pavement, staging rowdy sit-ins, and shutting down traffic to get what they want.
As the Socialist Worker Online puts it: They are "undocumented and unafraid."
