Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Friday, 10/29/10
Student NOTES from Institute seniors, not 'official'
Opening: Yes! Clintons are onboard for Reverse CHAOS.
Seg#1: Democrats have nothing // turn to character assassination.
We had a great photo op yesterday for a cover of Newsweek: if you are a fan, the fan says "Come on in!" and if a distracter, "Screw You!"
www.RushLimbaugh.com [A great picture, article about top 50 shows.]
"Sneak Peek: Rush on Upcoming Cover of Newsweek"
Andrew Meek is the next Democrat candidate to fall victim to shoveling. Core Democrats hear for the first time that Meek isn't going win. What is it about Democrats and Black candidates? Clinton goes down to ask him to withdraw, same as Karl McCall, Cuomo, and The Torch Torricelli.
Now, Andrew Meek says Clinton never asked him to quit; rather, he says, it was Charlie Crist.
Christine O'Donnell is within 10% points. Coons has withdrawn; O'Donnell has support of Independents. If she loses by only 3%, it will be the fault of [Moderate Republican] our guys on our side.
Crist starts out as a Republican and when he doesn't win the Primary and gets support of WH and the Democrat is asked to get out of the race for Republican Mark Rubio to lose for them. The Left just can't live with the thought that a bright, young, Hispanic would be a Republican in the Senate.
They did the same to drag Anita Hill out of the closet to try to trash a great Black American going to the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas.
Comedy Central had the host of the show looking bigger than POTUS. It goes beyond calling Obama, "dude", and the audience laughed at him as they joined John Colbert in laughing at him.
Clinton-gate has been exposed in Florida and it will help Mark Rubio. Andrew Meek is trying to save Clinton's bacon by saying it was Crist that asked him to get out. It is Operation Reverse CHAOS right before your face — love it!
An anonymous source paid by Gawker says he had a sexless one-night-stand with Christine O'Donnell, and it is now discredited. What is a sexless one-night-stand, anyway? Making out? When they have nothing, they try for character assassination. And Meg Whitman moves back up in CA against Moonbeam. She is in
Barney Frank and Kucinich are both in genuine trouble; and Russ Feingold in WI is toast. Patty Murray may fall. Angle is up by 4% and may 'pull away' from Dingy Harry. We know John Raese and Sharron Angle will win because John McCain has gone in to make you think it was his influence.
> We have good vibes and we shall return right after this [ad break].
Democrats are finding they cannot run on a winning record.
Seg#2: You could say, once again, it is a test for the USA Electorate!
Gawker had that anonymous story for 11 days and sat on it for maximum effect. They wanted to leave no time for response. This stuff is not going to work in a Tea Party environment. Republicans attack the Obama/Democrat Agenda, and Democrats don't even try to attack what Republicans will try to do. If O'Donnell is such a dunce to Liberals why not attack her positions? They have nothing!
It is laughable for Dingy to call grandma Sharron Angle "an extremist".
>>> All they can do is try to smear, no accomplishments; no policy.
Segment#3: Race Professionals would be disposable also
It is important to point out they are trying to derail Rubio. It is Miguel Estrada all over again. Democrats say they are the party of the little guy and they stab minority candidates in the back. Clinton and Crist put out into the press that Meek promised to quit, twice. He is not going to get out.
Just the story that Meek agreed to vote is a message to Blacks to not waste their votes. This is also historic for the first Black president to take out a Black candidate in favor of a White candidate who switched from Republican. Obama puts Black candidates into the back of the bus if not liberal enough.
((Clinton: In the end, I told Meek he had say whatever he saw was right.)) Clinton was also lying about Sestak, "I never said he would have a job."
Charlie Crist has been conniving with the WH to get rid of Meek. FNC Greta VanSusteren gave him names, asking to whom in the White House he talked to and he would not name names. They are trying to take a job from a Black Guy and give it to a Cracker. BTW, definition of 'cracker' is a Floridian.
((Clip-Borger: It could upset the African American voters.)) They are shafting a loyal African American to step down. Charlie Crist has the open pipeline to the WH, not xxx Meek. Where is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? And that is because they are loyal to the party line. They deliver voters and are given recognition.
>>> When they don't, they are just as disposable.
Segmenty#4: If you can't win, Obama sends you back to the Plantation
I find it very telling that Meek says it was Crist not Clinton. You see Clinton finger prints. We know it was Clinton, for sure. The Democrat Party, not me, puts people in groups. Can you Black, African American Democrats say, "Civil Right"? Guess what matters most to Democrat leaders. They take you for granted.
Obama will be back to Delaware tomorrow. This wasn't supposed to be.
> The party being led by Jackass tells a Black guy, "We don't want you."
Seg#5: Liberals not in power are hilarious; and in power, dangerous
The haughty John "F-ing" Kerry, JFKerry (who served in Vietnam) spoke.
He said that Hannity, Beck, and I lead the nation into nothingness.
Seg#6: People we elect should not govern against our American will
(Theme Music) I did that? Senator Kerry (who served in Vietnam) knew enough to pick John "Breck Girl" Edwards as his running mate.
Taking 40 airplanes — sounds like an escape to India for Obama.
((Reading)) What is JFKerry doing talking to the Boston Chamber of Commerce? Doesn't he know they are evil? Economic problems? Why would anybody think that? You are not smart enough to see that happening and have to be told by the Elite. ((Reading on: Kerry singled out attacks on Cap and Tax. "Have we lost our minds? Where is the Science? Republicans block progress.)) Senator, you guys had 60 votes for a year and 59 now, and Republicans could stop nothing. What in the world have we stopped?
We had Obamacare rammed down our throats, against the will of the people.
((Reading: Limbaugh and Beck did not respond to eMail.)) We get 100,000 eMail notes a day and I guess I missed it, but I am responding now.
"Cash-to-ride-Cab-free" allows pollsters to fill in a questionnaire. Host Ben Bailey asked about Operation Chaos and contestant wins. If you answer incorrectly, I guess they drop you off downtown where you don't want to go.
Christine O'Donnell is up w/Independents 45% to 42% over the Marxist with a beard, now shaving. Do Democrats believe Republicans will work with them? If they do it is because of experience with Snow, McCain, and Murkowski.
With this Regime, on what would you want to compromise? Republicans are led by their base rather than governing against the will of the people.
>>> That is the way it is supposed to work isn't it?
Seg#7: Keep up pressure to build the voter Tsunami on Nov 2nd Tues
I know about the cargo planes in UK, Dubai, etc, as "Middle Eastern Liberals" [Jihadists] try to influence our elections. I can't say much until more is discovered.
Caller: Media was 'shocked' as values came up with O'Donnell.
And with "Republicans will cut your SocSec", you can only go to the well so many times. That isn't working since Florida. If you cry wolf too many times and the wolf doesn't woof back, people know it isn't true.
Frank Lunz was on with Hannity and I hear myself [in echo]. There was one Black person in the audience standing by Obama, but he was being ganged up on.
>>> There is very strong support for Tea Party conservative values.
Seg#8: Rush is passionate about creeping Socialism robbing Freedom
Robert Fibbs talked about the packages starting in Yemen. ((Reading)) A lot of them are being announced now as 'nothing'. Maybe they remember Obama saying we could withstand another attack, he did say that.
Caller: Who are the 800 people going to India w/Obama?
A lot of Secret Service people. 520 rooms in Taj Mahal Hotel; are they coming back? This trip starts a few days after the election, so Obama will not be anywhere near the Disaster. Czars do not have to go through Senate confirmation/hearings. 40 aircraft! You have Teleprompter; and the press.
Caller: Schwarzenegger vs video games goes before Supreme Court.
I am glad it comes up because I am in the Free Speech business. Get on board, buddy: they should leave your video game alone [Caller is age 21]
> Welcome to Conservatism; tell your friends about the Constitution.
Seg#9: Get with it, GOP, or you could be the 10% third party
Caller-Ashville: RoboPoll asked me if I was aware that the Speaker of the House could be chosen from among someone not in the House. It was multiple choice with you as #5. Then it asked if I would call my representative.
You can be a member of the Supreme Court without being a lawyer or a judge, but I hadn't heard that about Speaker. We are looking at it here and every speaker has been a Congressman. It seems to be correct and I could run for Speaker. I wouldn't have to run for office in Florida-4. Who could disagree with my agenda?
There would be down sides: Pay cut; have to be there; have to sit next to Bite Me during State of the Union Speech and not make faces. Who would be my competition? Newt or Colin Powell?
Caller: I am against Op Reverse Chaos; Obama will be so toxic.
Third party is not the way to go since you have no structure in Congress when you get there. What is happening is what is best — Tea Party ascendancy! Got an eMail from Politico Mike Allen that says Establishment is looking for someone to run instead of Sarah Palin. They always tell you who they fear most. What is the point of writing a story like that now? To sow dissention right before an election?
>>> Regardless, you do not want to create 3rd party unless it is them.
Seg#10: Where is the criticism over hyping 'no bomb' packages ?
Look folks, no matter how you look at these packages on the airplane story: it is either being done by [Jihadists] as a dry run to show they can; or the stories are being over-hyped by DbM/WH to change elections.
>>> If it is hyping by the Regime, they think it will help Democrats.
"If not us, who; if not now, when?", Ronald Reagan
Seg#11: Do you kill the American Way to be a happy Marxist ?
(Music) Final Hour, of the fastest three hours in media! I change not. Let's talk a little bit about the mysterious packages throughout the world. So far, no bomb. So either these package stories are a dry run to let us know they can, or the stories are being hyped by The Regime. Who are Liberals trying to help? Clearly they are imposing themselves on our election.
Does our government think bomb threats will help Obama? Does al-Qaeda think it will help Obama? They wanted to kill the Dubai Ports deal because ports were our weakest point. Now, they seem to say it is true. They charged, "It is not true with Bush. It is just political."
It shows you do not have to have a bomb to terrorize travelers.
Alaska supreme court says it is OK to have a 'cheat-sheet' to remind voters about the write-in candidates like Lisa Murkowski. Polls say she is neck and neck with Joe Miller but they still have to write a name. How do you spell 'Murkowski' without a cheat sheet? 'Murkowski' in Alaska is like 'Ewing' in Texas.
That ruling has inspired 100 new candidates to file as 'write in' and the Murkowski move has backfired. It is hilarious; Tea Party people responded. ((Reading: Will misspelling 'Murkowski' count? It has not been decided.))
((Clip)) So how can you support Obama, not in the center? He is no more "in the center" than Hitler was. Show me great legislation written by 'Moderates'. Who moved when Democrats 'owned' Congress and Ronald Reagan went to the people and got Congress to pass tax cuts?
Fareed Zakaria wants a 5% tax on innovation; he is a statist.
>>> Damn it! We are the only country that does not have a VAT.
Seg#12: "Making trouble for Obama" is actually saving America
Newsweek Fareed Zakaria doesn't see several levels of income taxes, dividend taxes, water taxes, property taxes, consumer taxes, car tax, gasoline tax, licensing taxes. Fareed Zakaria wants a Value-Added-Tax to pay for Obamacare and 5% tax on innovation.
Goodman looks at me as the "American Taliban". ((Clip)) Hatred towards gays; agenda against women; etc; all not true.
When Republicans win, I will be the one standing in the way of them selling out. "The Limbaugh Problem" according to Fareed Zakaria, thank you!
Who is going to win the Elections Tuesday? Who do I say is going to be destroyed? "Is Rush Limbaugh Good For America" was a cover article. If I am the guy 'stopping progress' then we need more guys doing that.
>>> We still have half an hour to "make more trouble for Obama".
Seg#13: You should join Heritage Foundation and help save America
Heritage Foundation has published their list of commonsense cuts in government. They are ahead of the curve in the national discussion. There are over 700,000 members via www.AskHeritage.org Sign up today. It is fabulous and starts with a charitable contribution of $25 to keep them going.
Caller: American Dream dead? Not with me. Don't give up, people.
What do you do?
Caller-still: Three of us design custom cabinets and then build them.
Caller-still-Rush-baby: I was not indoctrinate but encouraged by you.
You made my day (telling story of starting).
Caller-still: Work is still an option: work hard to succeed. You have opportunity to pursue your dreams. You have the freedom in America.
People voting on Tuesday fear it is being taken away.
Caller: Even if taxes go up, I will continue working because I love it.
You are only 26 but will never be homeless, ahead of the game.
>>> You made our day for all of us; God bless your continued success.
Seg#14: After what he has done, are voter opinions surprising?
Time.com notes Pelosi and many will retire if they lose the House. That is sufficient reason to vote Conservative.
Lots of eMail notes including the Conservative running against Kucinich. He is a Rush baby.
((Parody about shopping cart and no one willing to dislodge the one blocking the line. "You give up to easy.")) That was 10 yrs ago.
>>> Doug Schoen Poll: Most want Obama fired; Bush was better.
Seg#15: Staff wants to know if Rush has ever pushed a shopping cart
Closing: It may have happened once; store people surprised.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Defiance"
Well, the house organ for the Democrat Party -- the flagship newspaper of the State-Controlled media, The New York Times -- went to Defiance, Ohio to try to understand why a traditional Democrat stronghold is not a sure bet for the Democrats this time around.
Now, this town of Defiance, 17,000, is a big United Auto Workers district. Surrounded by Republican districts, it maintains a Democrat majority. Although Obama's takeover of GM kept a local foundry in operation, unemployment is over 13 percent, and the people there are unhappy.
One of those unhappy Democrats is a 31-year-old woman who runs her own insurance agency. She didn't like the bank bailouts, but the primary reason she now regrets her vote for Obama? "He rammed health care down our throats." This woman understands that Obamacare will foul up her business.
The New York Times reports: "Bonds to the Democratic Party seem to be loosening here in northwest Ohio, after two years of economic hardship and a growing sense that many children will be financially worse-off than their parents. Skepticism about big government has hardened," especially among small business owners. (That was in the New York Times!)
My friends, put aside the ruling class Democrats, those in the political class. Put aside the hard-core Democrats who would vote for Lucifer if he had a "D" after his name. Average rank-and-file Democrats, in places like Defiance, Ohio, are suffering under this regime (like the rest of America), and they are defiant because they don't like it -- and they know who to blame now... and it ain't us.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"No, I'm not watching Dancing With the Stars. I live in mortal fear they're going to ask me to be on that show."
"This is not the time to be defensive, not the time to be afraid of the charge of racism. Drop this fear of the media, Republicans. The support of the American people will dwarf whatever damage the media can do to you."
"Ladies and gentlemen, I can reveal the Bush book. It ain't bad. In fact, it will remind you, as it did me, of when we had a president who loved America."
"The Reagan Democrats, the Scoop Jackson Democrats... I mean, they're still there, but this is not what they're about. They're not about a president who hates the country. They're not about a president who wants to preside over an America in decline."
"Make no mistake: Barack Obama is very happy about what he's done to the country -- very happy. He sees himself as Reverend Wright's chickens come home to roost."
"If I were in CNN's circumstances, I'd be long gone. I could not survive that kind of audience plummet. I mean, I would fire me. I would realize the time's up."
"When Obama calls us 'folks', like he did on The Daily Show, we know what he really means: the enemy. Say what you want about presidents we've had in the past, but most of them have at least viewed themselves as representatives of all the people. Not this guy."
"Here's the dirty secret. Well, it's not a dirty secret. It's just that if you want higher unemployment, if you want fewer jobs, vote Democrat."
"The Republicans should state openly they will not tolerate any more radicals on the federal bench -- no more Kagans, no more idiots. If the Republicans do this, they will go a long way toward restoring the republic."
"Everybody asks, 'How can a liberal be that way?' It's in the brain, and now we have science actually backing it up. Liberalism is genetic defect."
"I can say with relative confidence that Sharron Angle will beat Dingy Harry and John Raese will beat Joe Manchin, and this is because John McCain's gone in to help both of them. Now, don't misunderstand me on this. It's not because of McCain -- he just wants everybody to think it's because of him."
"Let's go to the audio sound bites to prove it, and what better subject to prove that liberalism is a genetic defect than Chris Matthews at PMSNBC."
"Obama is on television every day. Every day. That means it's not special. And every time he goes on television, he diminishes himself and the office of the presidency."
"The Hill Buzz guys confuse me a little bit because they claim to like Sarah Palin, and I don't know how you like Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton at the same time."
"I scratch my head and say, 'Why are these smart people two years late in seeing what was plain as day in front of their very face?' I mean, Obama's a radical who's got a chip on his shoulder about this country."
"The left's view of America will get even worse precisely because of the election. Obama and his supporters will look at the results next Tuesday and see in their minds a confirmation that racism, sexism, bigotry, and homophobia has risen to the top."
"'Disgraceful' does not begin to describe the Illinois election system. 'Disgraceful' doesn't even scratch the surface."
"If there were media back during the days of Nero, they would write glowing stories about how well he played the fiddle while Rome burned to the ground -- which is what they're essentially doing with Obama today."
"What kind of self-loathing must you feel in order to occupy the position that Obama and his crowd does?"
"The thing that worried a lot of us in 2008 was: Did Obama's election mean that a majority of America looks at the country the way he does? I think we're finding out now that it did not."
"I think Obama would take it as a huge compliment to be seen as the American Mandela; a huge, huge compliment. I mean, Obama is a proactive anti-American. He's not just an apologist."
"Obama's base is livid with Obama over health care. Now, you and I look at this and think: they ought to be happy, they ought to be doing threesomes in the Lincoln Bedroom -- but they're not."
"I predicted to you the Democrats would never close Club Gitmo or lose a war when they're in charge of it. They will engineer a loss when a Republican's president, but they will not saddle themselves with a loss militarily while they're running the show."
"We're not electing people to go up there and wait two years until we might win the presidency to do stuff. There is a sense of urgency about this. Win, lose, or draw, the Republicans should be fighting for the right things."
"I've been told that Obama uses a teleprompter in staff meetings, and I believe it. I mean, we know he took a teleprompter with him to a grade school."
"Liberalism is a genetic defect. And why not? In fact, liberals are descended from pond scum. They say so. They teach that they are descended from pond scum. 'What do you mean by that, Rush?' Well, very simple, folks. They don't believe in creation. They believe in evolution."

October 29, 2010 Posted by Paul at 12:18 PM
In early August, I ended a post about four Michigan congressional races (MI-1, MI-5, MI-7, and MI-9) by speculating that "in a pretty good Republican year, the party picks up two Michigan seats. In a "wave" election, it picks up three; and in a blow-out of historical portions, four" With election day almost upon us, let's take another look at these races, plus one that wasn't on my radar in August.
MI-1 is currently held by Bart Stupak who is retiring. Republican Dan Benishek has maintained a small lead throughout the campaign. In the last poll I found, he was up 42-40. A conservative third candidate was pulling 8 percent. Some of that margin may fall Benishek's way on election day. Both Nate Silver and Larry Sabato prefer Benishek's chances in this race. I think it will be a Republican pick-up.
MI-9 is held by Gary Peters. His challenger is Rocky Raczkowski. This has been nip-and-tuck in the polls. A recent EPIC/MRA poll had Peters up 48-43. However, EPIC/MRA has its detractors and a new poll by Great Lakes Strategies shows Rocky ahead by the same numbers. Both Silver and Sabato see Peters as the favorite, but in light of the new poll, perhaps it should be considered a toss-up (I don't believe Sabato is using the toss-up category in his final predictions). With the Republican gubernatorial candidate holding a 17 point lead in this district, I'd probably bet on Rocky.
MI-7 is held by Mark Schauer. The challenger is Tim Wallberg. Two recent polls have Schauer ahead by 7 points. However, I've heard that internal polling has the race basically even, and both Silver and Sabato see Wallberg as the favorite. The Republican gubernatorial candidate is strong in this district, but Wallberg's Republican backing reportedly isn't as solid as it could be. This is a race I wouldn't bet on.
MI-5 is held by Dale Kildee. The challenger is John Kupiec. Kildee has been ahead in every poll I've seen, although one recent poll has Kupiec within 4.5 points. Silver and Sabato see it going Democratic. However, John Fund sees the real possibility of an upset. The district, which includes Flint, is economically depressed, and Kildee is 81 years old. Even so, I think I'd bet on Kildee to hang on to this seat.
Since I wrote my August post, MI-15, held by John Dingell, has come into play. In early October, a poll showed him trailing challenger Rob Steele. But last week, an EPIC/MRA poll had Dingell leading Steele 53-36. Silver and Sabato see Dingell holding the seat, and tht's how I would bet.
So the over-under on Michigan pick-ups looks to me like 2.5

My column today pays tribute to some of the conservative women on the campaign trail who have not only weathered the nastiest ad hominem attacks, but who have risen above them with amazing grace. Is it any wonder that women are abandoning the Democrat Party? Readers of this blog have known that women played a critical role in the Tea Party movement from day one. Now, the "fire in the heartland," as Citizens United calls it, has liberal elites like Katie Couric wringing their hands over "unwashed" moms, grandmoms, and young women in revolt.
Speaker Mop and Glo Nancy Pelosi had her chance to clean up Washington. She failed. Miserably. Move over and make room for the ladies of the Right.
