Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Friday, 9/16/11
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: Welcome to Open-Line Friday, from Florida.
Segment#1: Ford buyers are patriotic Americans
I have not reached out to partner up with a Tea Party group. They used my name for promotion. Call in 1-800-282-2882 or send to ELrushbo@EIB.net We are going to give some "Two if by Tea" to a caller that can identify these two guys: "Tom Ridge endorses Jon Huntsman." Tell me who they are.
Obama takes his bridge talk to the Ohio-Kentucky border. It is a slap in the face to Boehner from Ohio and McConnell from Kentucky. This is The Regime civility. McConnell and Boehner should say, "We gave you $800billion dollars to already fix this bridge; why should we believe you now."
US News & World Report, real truck drivers were interviewed for Ford. It is unscripted with a Ford F-150 ((Clip: I wasn't going to buy from a company bailed out by our government. When you get knocked down, pick yourself up. Ford is that company for me.)) I reported him to AttackWatch.com and also reported Hillary Clinton.
www.DrudgeReport.com [Picture of Hillary Rodham, did she have a face lift?]
CNBC has a picture of Hillary that to me ended any hope of a Hillary challenge to Obama. A story from John Fund says (14 months out) Obama is 'toast'. I happen to think a lot can happen. The Democrat isn't going to toss off Obama, especially since he is Black. They have to convince him to leave on his own.
"You are bigger than this; you need to run the World Bank and IMF; you don't need to be making speeches at bridges, man", DNC will say to Obama.
Left-leaning Gawkers has a story that Obama is clinically depressed. So they go to a clinical doctor and find he may have 'low tea', testosterone. [Does he need Two if by Tea?]
>>> If he lost some, figure it out on your own. [His wife, Michelle?]
Seg#2: Bob Turner and other Conservatives win by not 'getting along'
((Clip-Ford-buyer: I bought from a company standing on their own.)) Great!
Bloomberg national poll says Americans blame Republicans, 45%. 20% blame Obama, and 35% blame Democrats in Congress. Birdbrain of Alcatraz, Nancy Pelosi, says, "Where's Dingy Harry?" I think this is why Boehner wants to work with Obama since even Republicans read the polls.
((Reading-AP poll: Obama has poor performance among Independents, 63% disapprove and 29% approve of Obama.)) This is contrary to the Bloomberg poll. Explain this to me. It is troubling to me that our guys believe push-polls.
>>> The only poll that counts is Conservative Landslides at the booth.
>>> Our guys need to stop listening to this pre-poll crap.
Seg#3: Democrat-Liberal policies do not create Utopia
Gawker guys are not claiming Obama is depressed—it is The New York Times preparing a story. ((Reading-Gawker: From inside we hear Obama is tiring from politics.)) [Butthead] Bob Beckel says Obama might not run. Sometimes he doesn't want to get out of bed. NYTimes is not a manly place and if they accuse Obama of 'low-tea' that is bad.
You never hear that Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband Bill are depressed. [Liberalism is indeed depressing and now they didn't get everything.] Their policies do not create Utopia, happiness and wonderment. They are staring the results right in the face.
"If we just get the right person in there and a Democrat Senate and House, we will get all the socialism we want." They did get everything with Obamacare and they are still not happy. If they are not enraged, they are looking for something that will make them enraged.
Tavis Smiley says Obama is ignoring Blacks and his base. NYC Mayor Bloomberg says there will be riots in the streets if jobs for youth are not created. He is a Democrat at heart that ran as a Republican. Obama wants the riots.
Tavis Smiley doesn't see Obama down for the struggle. He doesn't see any manifestation of Hope and Change. For Blacks, Democrats never deliver.
>>> Hillary said, "I no way tired" and she wasn't low on testosterone.
Seg#4: Secure the US borders and there will be more American jobs
There is more and more talk on the Left of Obama losing or leaving. Don't fall for it. There is even an article in The Hill naming Democrats that could run against Obama in the primary. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/181909-senior-white-house-officials-work-to-quell-democratic-dissent-over-jobs-bill
Bob Turner didn't say, "We want to work with the president" like Boehner and McConnell seem to be saying. Why would anybody listen to stupid polling?
Even the state-run AP is becoming skeptical ((Reading: Before the program ends on Sept 30, companies want to have the gov't money for green windmills. Etc. Teachers want Stimulus money not spent.)) Meanwhile, Jay Carney said Obama didn't even know about Solyndra, "He wasn't briefed on it."
I have a question for NYC Mayor 'Doomberg' who predicts economy riots:
>>> Would NYC have more job opening if borders were protected?
America immigration laws could be enforced to not hire Illegals.
Seg#5: Our Republican leaders are watching push-polls too much
Blaming Republicans? This is the same polling company that said most American wanted Obamacare passed. Now they say Americans want his next Stimulus passed.
>>> It is no wonder our Republicans say what they say, reading polls.
Seg#6: World Liberals in Spain tried the Green approach and it failed
(Theme Music) It may be true that Obama is depressed. DbM is too. This is not how it was supposed to be. They throw credibility to the wind. Drive-by Media is in the tank for Obama, propping him up but it is now depressing.
Why should Obama be depressed? He is a Liberal. On his blank slate he was whatever people wanted him to be, treated in a special way all his life. Now, he is finding out he is not all of that, hitting the brick wall of Reality.
Falsifying Miami student tests, the pupils were feeling so smart. I was heartened in the student response, they felt they had been cheated.
((Reading: Rushing through questionable loans could lead to 15 more companies failing like Solyndra.)) Is that like unqualified home sales? The Regime is like the USSR Politburo, picking the right companies of their liking. It is corporate cronyism as Liberals know it.
Spain has tried the green approach and it failed. Do we really have to worry about the ChiComs cornering the sun? Yet we funnel money to them for solar.
AP Matthew Daly is the stenographer for the Whitehouse. ((Reading: Solyndra falling will be bad timing for optics.)) Can we learn that green technology for profit is a fraud? Algore becomes a problem for the movement.
Liberals are depressed as they watched Algore's latest PowerPoint, filled with wild claims. The central Regime is lousy at picking winners and losers.
Caller-NJ: I'm voting for Romney. Perry wants $$ for illegals.
I don't pick this early. I praised six on the Republican debate stage. They all have defects but less than Obama. You cite Perry illegal [education], and Romneycare is around his neck.
Caller-still: I think Romney is the only one that can beat Obama.
I disagree there. Keep focused on vulnerability of Obama.
Barry Manalow says he agrees with everything Ron Paul says.
>>> I wonder if they tortured Sheik Mohammad with his records?
Seg#7: Rush doesn't talk about Obama to cover a new possible tax
A person hung up who wanted me to stop talking about Obama, "Give him a chance." Let's push Obama aside for a moment.
Celebrities are talking about it openly, the cradle of life in the central of civilization ((Reading: Marketers are using ads that are shocking about [Vagina]. Women say, "Hey, we are not embarrassed to talk about ourselves.)) I didn't know the term 'JJ' became popular when Oprah used it in 2007.
So we didn't talk about Obama for 90 seconds in honor of last caller.
The Left is going to want their fair share of the Vagina business;
and Obama is going to want to tax it for his Stimulus.
>>> Obama could consult Elliot Spitzer on taxing that.
Seg#8: We need a genuine Conservative, i.e., who is conservative .!.
Housing continues to slip and Democrats see Obama not caring. The Whitehouse has totally lost control of the Democrat Party. Dingy Reid says the Obama Jobs Plan would go anywhere. The only ones giving credibility to Obama is Boehner and Cantor.
James Carville is now going 'verbal' to back up what he wrote. CNN Blitzer questions him. ((Clip-Carville: This is not working; bring in a new team; don't play over and over the same hand, not working.)) Who should be fired? ((Clip: How many generals are fired when things don't go well. You are right: he can't fire himself or VP [Bite-Me].)) He is right.
Obama can't fire his economic team, they all quit.
Austan Goolsbee was the last one out; Geithner wants to quit and they won't let him. It doesn't matter if Obama has no clue or he [destroys] and redistributes on purpose.
James Carville remembers how easy it was to beat Bush One in an economy that was far better than it is now, 5% unemployment. Blitzer asks for names ((Clip-Carville: It is more than somebody.)) James and Mary Matalin packed up their kids and moved to New Orleans. James sits on the beach and ask himself, "What would Stalin do?" Go in and shoot every tenth soldier?
This did not sit will with [Butthead] Bob Beckel. ((Clip: I don't think it is helpful for James Carville to suggest Obama fire everyone.)) Beckel never ran a successful campaign. There is genuine Democrat discord.
Democrats running for office now want to distance from Obama. They got all they wanted with their ideology of socialism and spending — but it turned out to be a far cry from what they expected. Winning will be against Obama.
Some people will always support Leftist causes. People see what is happening because they are living all of it. They are living the inflation of the dollar. They don't need to be told.
On the other side is the repair and is not another RINO in the WH. We need someone with Conservatism in their heart, not needing a Telepromter to explain. We must nominate and elect the right person and also others to support.
Even if Obama loses, there are still career Leftists in the bureaucracy. There is a lot of hard work that remains.
>>> You and I know we need a genuinely Conservative candidate.
'Conservative' is a political noun; and 'conservative' is a good adjective.
Seg#9: No, manmade Global Warming is NOT 'settled science'
Nobel Prize winner Dr Ivar Giaever was at GE and did research on electrons tunneling in superconductors. He now resigns from the American Physical Society of their support of manmade Global Warming. It is nowhere near 98% consensus of people in science.
[[ED: Junk Science, cover up, and Liberal 'consensus' is not true science!]]
www.theblaze.com/stories/nobel-prize-winner-resigns-over-an-incontrovertible-stance-on-global-warming/ More and more,
>>> things are happening every day to show the AGW Hoax and Fraud.
Seg#10: Another busy broadcast hour goes to Limbaugh Archive
> > > I feel refreshed and still have 80% of what I need to cover.
Segment#11: A great website: http://TimScott.house.gov/
(Music) Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act from Tim Scott yesterday to limit the federal government Relation Board hovering over Boeing. By the way, Tim Scott is Black and Conservative, which some say is impossible.
The summary is a few words longer than the bill, not likely to pass in the Democrat-run Senate. http://yallpolitics.com/index.php/yp/post/30172/
Environmentalists worry that Algore is becoming a Joke and hurting the Global Warming movement. Tim Scott is the first Black American who is Conservative from the Deep South since Reconstruction. There are a lot of people out there doing great things, such as Andrew Breitbart publishing the pictures followed by a Weiner denial. Andrew Breitbart got to the Weiner presser and made his case. Then when Weiner showed up, he looked even more foolish.
Huma made her statement, and they rekindled romance in So.FL and Italy.
((Clip-Carville: the NV and NY-9 elections do show something. Obama needs to show he is unsatisfied with the pace of Recovery and the way you do this is to change policy.)) James, do you think he really is unsatisfied with the 'pace'.
I know James and I ask this sincerely for them to consider. James, If I were unsatisfied, I wouldn't make changes in people but in policy. Obama could fire everybody and continue his failing policies.
Another thing, your party said the first was a Bush recession. If you say Obama gave us recovery from recession, then Obama now owns the Obama Recession. Republicans didn't have the votes to stop anything.
Boehner and Cantor are begging to work with Obama, not Democrats.
My honest question is, "Is Obama really dissatisfied with the pace of recovery?" I don't think showing up at bridges shows how he is interested in creating jobs.
>>> Snerdley, why do you keep asking me if Weiner voted for it?
Segment#12: Save America in one step, not six
Caller-TE: [Identifies Tom Ridge and Jon Huntsman and wins the Tea.]
Like listening to this show, try Two if by Tea and you are addicted.
Caller-still: Tea is also anti-oxidant.
That's a 'crock' but if you want to believe it, that's OK.
Caller-still: Six-step solution to solving the Economy: Cut regulations; Keystone pipeline; Drill; secure the boarder; put troops on the border. Step down Obama.
Your fatal flaw is that you think Obama wants solutions.
What do you think has to happen for your six steps to happen?
>>> Yours is a One-Step Solution: Defeat Obama.
Seg#13: Concentrate on picking our candidate on the large issues
Look at this: NV has over 15% unemployment; CA has over 12%. Has a president ever carried California with unemployment that high? The Democrat will carry CA and we have to admit that. It's a lost state. That brings me to Texas where Illegal Immigration is important.
One of the reasons we lost CA is immigration. Ronald Reagan could not win California today, that is how far gone it is. [Just watch us.] We can't afford to lose Texas. We can't lose both. Democrats know this and will press Perry.
After that, Florida. If we lose Florida, the issues won't matter. Some vote for any Democrat. That's the recent history. Upsets happen and we could have a 50 state Landslide with the right nominee. The borders have to be controlled—it is a very serious thing. This is why Axelrod says they have the Hispanic vote locked up.
We can't afford to lose Florida, California, and then Texas. Ronald Reagan was the exception; we have some today that could be close [to Reagan].
>>> Don't be distracted by smaller things in picking the flag bearer.
Seg#14: Sarah Palin could change the whole Bachmann dynamic
Caller-TX-gal: In last debate, Michele Bachmann repeated over and over. She began to not look at him face-to-face. It was not presidential.
It's television, talking to the audience. Her intent was to find the camera lens. She wanted to look strong to the American people—Obama does the same thing.
Remember that Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll, Perry entered and she lost the lead. She was going to keep after it and after it regardless of what Perry were to say. It is important how she acts.
This is why I am a firm believer there should not be cameras in courtrooms. It becomes a reality show, including the judge and witnesses.
Caller-MS: Sarah Palin is the answer. It will be a Tsunami and she has four million people on her Facebook.
Nobody knows for certain; she times her comments and may be signaling and telegraphing that she wants to get in. Time will tell. DbM is split on this. I bet it is in the back of Bachmann's mind.
>>> Palin getting in would change the whole Bachmann dynamic.
[ED: Palin entering could split Bachmann supporters and give us Perry or Romney.]
Seg#15: We enter Week Two of National Football League football
Closing: Next week I'll give you some Environmental-Wacko picks.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Imagine!"
There's a movement afoot by Pennsylvania Republicans that could be a political game-changer. The idea is simple. Instead of the "winner-take-all" rule that awards all of Pennsylvania's electoral votes to one candidate the state's electoral votes would be awarded to candidates based on the districts they win. After the most recent census, Pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes and 18 congressional districts. Republicans control 12 of those.
If the measure is passed Pennsylvania would become the third state to divvy up electoral votes like this, along with Nebraska and Maine.
Now, what does this mean in practical terms? As Washington Post blogger Aaron Blake reports, Democrat presidential candidates have won the state since 1988. But under the new system, even if Obama wins Pennsylvania in 2012 Republicans could walk way with 12 or 13 electoral votes.
Those numbers have Democrats worried. Scratch that. They're downright panicked – you can smell the fear! And they're not just worried about their own state Democrats fear other states with Republicans in charge of the legislature will follow suit. Angry Democrat state Senator Daylin Leach says the plan desecrates "224 years of history," and is "geared toward making sure a Democrat can never win another presidential election."
Hmm. To quote John Lennon: "Imagine! " Democrats unable to win another presidential election. Why, we'd all be singing America the Beautiful with new meaning!

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"When I die, which is going to be a long time from now, I want my last check to be written to the IRS, and I want it to bounce."
"How do we think we can fix 153 bridges Obama says are at risk when after ten years we still haven't rebuilt the World Trade Center?"
"Did The Beast (Obama's limousine) cross any of those bridges? The Beast weighs eight tons -- without Michelle in it! Eight tons, 16,000 pounds. Did they drive that thing and the rest of the motorcade over one of those Beltline bridges?"
"The bloom was off the Obama rose long before anybody was willing to admit that it was."
"What this country wants is a conservative leader."
"There is no jobs bill, and there's no jobs in that bill. All that is is tax increases."
"Obama is not about fixing the problem. He's about attempting to fix the blame."
"Tim Geithner says the economy is in the early stage of crisis. No kidding."
"Some of Obama's best friends are on Wall Street. It's called crony capitalism. Some of his best friends are CEOs of the biggest American corporations. You want to start indictin' people, the people to indict are in the regime."
"Families USA was the public relations team for Hillary Care, and their intention is to get as many people as possible dependent on government provided health insurance as soon as they can in order to make it impossible to repeal."
"The more Washington spends, the worse unemployment gets. If Obama would just say that he had a plan to drive up unemployment, he'd be hailed as a genius."
"We need to be told where these 153 bridges are, because if he doesn't tell us, then the regime -- Obama -- is holding drivers hostage. He's letting us drive over 153 bridges that could apparently fail and people could plummet to their deaths at any moment."
"You have the president of the United States going out there, 'If you love me, you gotta help me pass this bill.' Hey, Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta lower our taxes."
"The only thing that liberals ever point to funding or cutting is the stuff that we all do agree on, important use of tax dollars."
"If we really loved Obama, 9.1% unemployment wouldn't matter! If we really loved Obama, losing our homes wouldn't matter. The point is we don't love Obama! We don't love you, Mr. President."
"Bob Turner said the reason he ran was to stop Obama, not to work with him."
"I firmly believe that Washington Republicans are influenced by polls and commentators and conventional wisdom. I don't think that they are influenced as much by election returns, and I don't think they care so much that the public is fed up with Washington because it's fed up with big government."
"I'll be stunned if Obama doesn't get 70, 80% of the Jewish vote like he always does."
"For some reason, elected Republicans have it in their heads that if they don't say they want to work with Obama that they're gonna lose independents, and I think one of the reasons for this is consultants."
"Playing chess isn't a vision! Playing chess actually comes from wanting to play defense. Our views are popular and winning. Take it to 'em! Obama's views are unpopular and losing. So why play chess?"
"Obama is going crazy with this bridge nonsense. Obama's next campaign swing, jobs pitch, is going to be at the Brent Spence Bridge linking Ohio and Kentucky, states represented by Boehner and Mitch McConnell."
"You may not believe this. I am not a political junkie. I don't get a big thrill out of this chess playing and a step ahead here and there. I know a lot of people do and wish that our guys were better at it."
"We have a conservative ascendancy happening here .Our leaders need to embrace it and set forth with great confidence what we believe in, not play chess. Don't play defense. Put Obama on defense. Make this election about his record and our vision."
"It's been 23 years, folks. At some point you're going to stop doubting me."
