Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Friday, 6/1/12
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: Clinton says Romney is a great businessman . . .
Segment#1: Obama is fiddling and fundraising while our nation burns
... supposedly helping Obama with his campaign. The folks at Bain Capital are doing a great job. Most of our 'stack' is about unemployment news. Cory Booker, MA Gov Deval Patrick, Artur Davis, a lot of Black politicians are defending Romney, including now the First Black President, Bill Clinton.
Heartbreaking: the unemployment news today. Some of the Drive-by headlines, "Another Nail in the Obama Coffin". Lending to small business is down. Not one thing that Bernanke and The Regime have tried has worked. When will they learn? These numbers are heartbreaking. "The Recession Ended in June of 2009" and the Stumulus/Slushfunds had kicked in.
That means that ALL of this is from the Obama Regime. When Obama/Biden claimed it had turned around, they claimed credit for themselves. My fear in January of 2009 was this would be the results from Obama. I knew his politics.
It is depressing. Obama has nothing to run on. Reagan had 'Morning in America' and a recovery; Bush, 'I kept you safe and will continue to do so.' Clinton did some things.
This Adm/President/Regime is dominated by events. A week ago I said the event of the Obamacare ruling by the Supreme Court is the event they worry about. Obama was caught saying that he might need a second term to redo Obamacare. Why would he create a sense of doubt in the people closest to him?
Has he been given a heads up? I have no idea. Everybody has their opinions but no one knows except those nine justices, and maybe Obama.
Obama is not going to get even close to the $1billion war chest for his campaign; Republicans are raising more money then Democrats.
Our Economy and nation isn't going to get fixed with Obama in WH.
Obamacare was and is to be fully implemented in 2014; now in 2013 we have massive tax increases. Obama will be taking even more out of the private sector. Today is as good as it gets with Obama. People are coming around.
Everything Obama wanted he got, except 'union card check'.
Let me give you some context for the bad JOB news. The consensus U-3 was to be 8.1% (150,000 new jobs). That consensus was as good as AGW consensus. There is a huge flight of capital out of world stocks today. Experts missed it by 80,000 new jobs, only 69,000 new jobs. The past two months were revised down by 49,000 jobs. If the labor force were the same as when Obama took office, the unemployment would be 10.9%
We are down 2million people with jobs then that have given up looking for work. With a backdrop like that, remember this AEI James Pethokoukis reporting, we have had three profoundly weak quarters of economic growth. Our debt is spiraling out of control. Tax-mageddon is coming.
>>> With all of this, Obama will attend six fundraisers in one day.
Seg#2: The Republican Congress brought us the benefits, not Clinton
The reason Clinton had Legacy to sing about was because a Republican congress was elected in 1994. All the good things came from them.
Obama doesn't have that.
Five anonymous sources reported to Bloomberg News that Obama said he needed a second term to retry on healthcare.
He doesn't have the guts to go into Wisconsin because Scott Walker is going to win next Tuesday; but he does six fundraisers nearby.
>>> We are looking at total incompetence here [and malpractice].
Rush sees both a Marxist-on-purpose, and a POTUS not at the wheel.
Seg#3: Governor Scott Walker is going great — Obama is not
So we are at 8.1% and at 10.9% in reality. George Bush is so much smarter than people give him credit for. He cracked a joke, "When you are wondering the halls, trying to figure out what to do, and you pass this portrait, just ask, 'What would George do.'" There are fewer women employed now.
No business in their right mind will hire under Obama. He runs against on what made America great. Democrats praise Bain/Romney but don't dare (for the most part) say what they really think, "Obama is wrong!" Prominent Democrats governors are distancing themselves from Obama principles.
At the fundraiser, Obama demanded cellphones and recorders be confiscated. Yet, Bloomberg found five people who thought some or all of Obamacare will be struck down.
Governor Walker has not laid off anybody, nor raised taxes, and reduced the deficit and budget. Socialism fails every time it is tried. They are in panic in The Regime and DbM. What did they think would happen? We have had 3.5 years of Obamaism and there has been no good news. Why would today be different?
All of these experts were expecting 150,000 new jobs. Why is that number always coming up? That is the number of jobs you need to keep the unemployment number from going up. It is like the USSR wheat report. I followed it because Mr Buckley did. Every year they had a good forecast and were always wrong. DbM reported it because they knew they were in trouble if they reported the truth, that USA would always bail them out with ships of wheat.
Where was any indication of 150,000 jobs in May? Part of why I am depressed is that more people don't see it. I have a love of country; sadly, some are happy with this to gain more power by promising to fix what they caused.
The number, 69,000 that found jobs is larger than the CNN viewership. They hit another low, worst since 1981 when they had no competition. ((Clip-CNN: Groan . . . the private sector had 82,000 jobs and April was downgraded. Three months with job creation less than we thought.)) Not us!
>>> You are the 'professionals' — why were you surprised?
Segment#4: Take in a great movie this weekend
I've been given a movie to review and it is excellent, about persecution of the Catholic Church in 1917 in Mexico. Andy Garcia promotes Christianity. There are parallels to attacks today. "For Greater Glory" opens today.
The military goes into Catholic churches to take away religious freedom to take total control of the nation. Does that sound like Obama today?
>>> "For Greater Glory" opens today and is a great movie.
Rush says he will watch the rest of it with Kathryn tonight.
Segment#5: Charley Rose is a Liberal
Charley Rose asked his guest why Republicans were so passionate to beat Obama. What do you think was the answer?
>>> "Because they are racists." We'll play the clip.
Seg#6: Obama is not a politician, he is a community activist
(Theme Music) Some learn today that JOBS were revised down in March and April, yet every media outlet said then, "We are heading in the right direction." Now, how in the world can these journalists look themselves in the mirror. We haven't moved in the right direction since Obama took the Oval Office. Send in an eMail or call in.
Obamacare runs roughshod over religious freedom of the Catholic Church. The movie was made before the Supreme Court and the Catholic Church was tied to Obamacare. When was the last time such a religious movie was made? "The Passion of Christ" was a while ago, uncommon for Hollywood.
Charley Rose asks ((Clip-answer: This is an element that has hated the president since he took office, associating with Saul Alinsky and Chicago thugs. He is not socialist, by any means.)) Taking over 1/7 of the economy is not that? NY magazine editor Heilamann doesn't get it. You live here too—what more of Obama do you want?
((Clip-DbM-Bill-Plant: It is very close and it comes to Independents. Democrats have to appeal to their base and know the economy is their enemy.)) They really think Obama is working hard to get the Deficit down, even without a Budget in three years. They are delusional.
I have never seen a set of blinder bats than the WH-press corpse. What is one thing that Obama is doing to appeal to Independents? Is it the Keystone Pipeline? Bankrupting Solyndra? Causing unemployment? War on Women?
Obama is not a politician, he is a community activist. He blows off members of his own party. Now, they blow him off. Obama wants to transform America and he is doing just that. Obamacare was to have been a slam dunk. This was his victory over America that was founded. "It is not working, it has never worked."
((Clip-Rush: That dismal healthcare was shoved down our throats.)) Hans Nichols reports what Obama said at his fundraiser. Obama says he thinks the law is on his side, and then gives his BUTs. He wants a second term to redo it.
Is he sending a message for when Obamacare is stuck down in part. Did Elena Kagan tell him something? Why show a lack of confidence to donors?
>>> And it adds to the intrigue over the Supreme Court coming ruling.
Seg#7: For goodness sakes, say that this is now the Obama Economy
I think Obama is telling the donors the true dope scoop. Fat cat donors deserve to know. He blames Congress for the lack of jobs, "we can't come out of this overnight." For the last two years, he said we did come out, on the rebound.
Caller-gal: Let me brighten your day with our HS grad Two if by Tea story.
> > > Liberals will love it, and hate that they love it.
Seg#8: Harvey Weinstein interviews Bill Clinton on little-watched CNN
Chris VanHolland said millions were losing jobs under Bush, not entirely true. You can track job lose but it is after Obama wins the election. David Phlouff and also Obama said that Obama owns the economy. It is absurd to say that this lingers from Bush. They have locked themselves into a corner by not talking about anything positive. They are flailing and looking like jerks. Media people are depressed.
DbM hoped to carry forward the Lie. Bush has been off the radar for three years, by design. Bush isn't tied to any of this—it is all the Democrat Party. ((Clip-Steny Hoyer: We lost jobs under Bush; financial meltdown.)) Did you hear the reporterette say, "No argument." Why not blame George Washington or Lincoln.
Or go back and blame it on Nixon. They are gutless wonders. They claim any glimmer of positive news, and just one jobless report, continuing, throws them flailing. Some Democrats now leave Obama.
CNN had a substitute for Piers Morgan with Harvey Weinstein, a huge Bill Clinton supporter. When the portrait of Bill Clinton was uncovered in the WH, he was there in the front row. ((Clip-Clinton: You can make a company more productive and try to save it. It is good work. Romney had a brilliant business career. Yes, I do think Romney can produce jobs that Obama can't.))
[Rush uses his great Clinton impression next.] "When I fly around the world, I get there on jets of private equity executives, not Obama's. Etc. I chase women with them. Etc." Clinton praises Romney: been governor, saves companies; and meanwhile, Obama has six fundraisers in one day and blames Congress and Bush.
The private equity guys are at the top of the list with politicians, playing golf.
It's all been thrown back in Obama's face like a giant pie. ((Clip-Clinton-CNN: I still think Obama will win by 5% but closer today with the economy. "People get up in the morning, look in the mirror, and think they have failed."))
>>> No, they think Obama has failed.
Seg#9: Will ranking Democrats 'sell the store' to buy votes for Obama?
You've heard my prior thought/theory: All of the sudden the Bain Capital issue hits, and Democrats defend private equity. What you just heard is Bill Clinton endorsing Romney. What I think is happening is this: this economic disaster is real, genuine destruction taking place directly tied to Obama policies. What party does he represent? The Democrat Party has people scared to death with the effect.
Obama is passing but their careers go on. Are there any adults with a sense of what is happening to them? There is nothing good happening to the Democrat Party. All these democrats, elected and otherwise, are defending the private sector. My gosh, if we had a Republican in the WH, we would feel "all is lost for the party." We would see a losing Tsunami/Landslide loss coming.
>>> Adult, ranking-Democrats, must be asking themselves this.
S#10: Even Steny Hoyer says Clinton was correct.
>>> So add him to the list endorsing Romney.
KFI clip: "We've got a lot of work to do, before we get to where we want to be", Obama.
Seg#11: Caller was in Germany before/after Berlin Wall
(Music) Democrats defending Romney and private equity is great; at the same time they are undermining Obama. He had better do something about the political insubordination. It is public humiliation spinning out of control. Obama needs to do something about it.
Look at it like football mafia. His #1 campaign issue is to take Romney out per Bain Capital. Fast-Eddy Rendell, Lannie Davis, Deval Patrick, Clinton and Steny Hoyer say Romney was right.
Somebody like David Axelrod has to take them to the woodshed for disciplining. How do you discipline a former president when he tells the truth. It is shocking to go against Obama, and a double-shock they tell the truth. When have they done this before?
Clinton might be doing this only because Obama is Black.
But that does not explain Cory Booker and MA Gov Deval Patrick. I'm not only being funny, it is profound. Democrats are defending Capitalism. Are they aware they undermine Liberalism, their sitting president, and their whole Ideology.
Once you admit one truth, other truth revelation follows. If Democrats cause a world depression, the Democrat Party will be done, no the ash heaps.
When Gorbachev wanted to save his office by parceling out a little bit of freedom, and all it took was for one Marxist to say Socialism didn't work, and it all crumbled down. What happens now is profound. A little honesty is dangerous to them. They endorse Obama's opponent and credentials. It is not coincidental and happenstance.
((Clip-Duval-Patrick: I don't think Bain Capitol a bad company; question is, 'What happened when Romney was there?')) Anderson Cooper wants him to criticize vulture capitalism and he doesn't.
((Clip-Tyler-Matheson: We break away now. We will come back as he tries to put Vets back to work.)) CNBC (GE) cut away from Obama's speech to point out the stock market was tanking, "It was 200 pts down when he started, and 250 pts now."
Clip-accent-German: Before the Berlin Wall you had to have permission to buy appliances or take money from your bank account. They did not want you to have anything private. Etc.
So they wanted you to realize all came from the government.
Caller-still: They used news propaganda; here we have mainstream.
Not just one guy but institutional/media propaganda now.
Caller-still: We have thousands of stations like wasps flying in sync.
USSR had one station. Caller is right about many stations here.
>>> Obama wants you to think everything comes from Gov't.
Seg#12: Thousands of propagandists working for a Democrat president
Anderson Cooper is not so interested in Duval Patrick has to say, but in defending Obama's position of criticizing Romney/Bain. It is the role of a propagandist! Obama is the only guy that holds his opinion on Bain. This is why DbM is in panic and depression. They can't get all these Democrats to 'walk it back'. And they won't.
Chris Matthews calls Cory Booker, Black American new star, a traitor since he switched to the Republican Party. Soviet Union had one station and we have thousands of propagandists working for a Democrat president.
>>> >>> >>> Think about it.
Seg#13: Thank the military when you see them traveling
Caller-NM: I complimented a military man on a plane from TX. I said I am doing everything I can to support. He said, thanks and he sees OWS, but fights for us.
You realized that you are also fighting for your country.
In DC at a museum, National Review had wounded warriors and they started thanking me. I put my hand up, "Wait a minute. All I do is talk." He said, "We all have our role."
Caller-military-Mom-still: If we don't fight now, when will we?
It is a great reinforcement to remember our great Military and those that serve, leaders and youth. [Rush uses a Kleenex.] Why doesn't it get reported? Because of our media and also because trouble is reported and they are doing a great job. Share the story with others.
Caller-TX-gal: Adore and pray for you. We have Rush babies, now they just voted in the Texas primary. We used to get your Limbaugh Letter.
Why didn't you do a bake sale to pay for your subscription? Hang on.
Caller-still: Sex-selection abortion, EU vs USA. They get a paycheck for every child, and dark eyes and dark hair get more in Sweden. Where are USA morals?
Abortion, in and of itself, then: "I really wanted a boy" can't be good for the culture and sanctity of life.
"We don't need them born into poverty", Liberals used to say, a cheap excuse. So many are not born into wealth.
>>> What is it that leads to poverty? Liberalism.
Rush sends Brandy a new MacBook Pro and Limbaugh Letter, signed.
Segment#14: Those in The Regime were selected on purpose
George Zimmerman has his bail revoked because he had a second passport and more money in his PayPal account than his wife knew. So we are learning about 'social justice' and it ain't blind.
Caller: People around Obama are avowed Communists, tearing down USA.
When the Van Jones thing happened, people asked, "How did that happen, how did he get by vetting and screening?" Obama wanted Van Jones there. Most of the original financial advisory team got out. They wanted no part.
>>> There is nobody in there by accident.
Seg#15: It's not coincidental that everything Obama does is bad for USA
Look at it this way: If economic destruction were accidental then occasionally he would do something good. In Realville we see what is on purpose.
>>> Obama hasn't done a single thing that is good for the economy.
Closing: Have a good weekend, see a movie, see you on Monday.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Spouting Bull!"
David Cornsilk, a member of the Cherokee Nation, is leading a group of Native Americans who want the Massachusetts Democrat Senate candidate to come clean. The group even has a website: "Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren."
A little backstory. In 2011, Obama crony Warren set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which is yet another government agency making life tougher for businesses, under the guise of helping consumers. Obama handpicked her for the "Ted Kennedy" Senate seat in Massachusetts. Even though that seat is now held by Republican Scott Brown, Democrats believe it is theirs.
Recently we learned Elizabeth Warren claimed to be a Native American while at Harvard, because supposedly she has high cheekbones. And supposedly her mom told her she had Cherokee high cheekbones. Then an old marriage announcement was supposedly discovered, which was never made public. Warren said it confirmed she was 1/32 Indian.
Cornsilk and the other Cherokees aren't buying. They say they've done their own research, and Warren speaks with forked tongue. It's impossible for her to be 1/32 Native. As for her family stories, Cornsilk says, "My mom called me 'David Crockett' when I was little, because my name is David. That doesn't mean I'm related."
The Warren campaign is ignoring the Cherokees. They hope the truth will be buried, and the pale-face, high-cheekbone Elizabeth Warren, also known as "Chief Spouting Bull" can finally put this thing to bed. In her tepee, I guess.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"I wonder if Mayor Doomberg has a backup plan in case some people get the idea of buying two drinks and combining them. How's he going to deal with that? Has he even stopped to consider that people might just buy two? Once he figures that out he's going to have to ban that as well."
"The lesson in Wisconsin is that conservatism works. Scott Walker has done everything that Obama says is impossible to do. He cut spending and expanded the economy while lowering taxes and laying off no one. It's amazing."
"People are living the reality of the job market. And AP and Reuters and the rest can do everything they want to try to convince people that everybody else is doing well. There's no evidence. You don't see it. Nobody's living it. So they're now becoming jokes."
"Do you realize, folks, only outlaws are going to have Slurpees in New York? In addition to guns, only the outlaws are going to have Slurpees."
"The portrait of George W. Bush -- it's hidden behind a drape, and they lift the drape and everybody looks at the portrait, and they applaud and so forth, and I was just hoping that somebody would have put a cartoon bubble near Bush's face and inside the bubble it said, 'Miss me yet?'"
"There are only three of them, maybe only two, golden Electro-Voice microphones in the whole world, made especially for the EIB Network and me, El Rushbo, your guiding light."
"As a rugged individualist and as a resident of Realville, one of the things that I, as mayor, realize is that no two people are alike. And in something which is medical or health-related, you simply can't say that something is true for everybody."
"I defy so many premises out there in medicine that it makes my doctors mad. My cholesterol is normal. My blood pressure is normal. My triglycerides are normal. I ought to be off the charts! I don't exercise. My lung capacity ought to be zero."
"Democrats have escaped the consequences of their actions for over a hundred years. History doesn't record them accurately when it comes to destroying things."
"Look at all the new taxes. Look at the further shrinkage of the employment base. Look at the slowdown of the economy that is, without question, coming. What part of that do the Democrats not want? It's all happening because of them."
"This fiscal cliff that we're headed towards? The Democrats are driving the car. If they don't want us headed to the cliff and going over, they would change the direction the car is being driven. But they're not. They're doubling down on it."
"What part of this agenda do the Democrats not want? Do you hear any Democrat arguing against the Obama agenda, other than Artur Davis who's leaving the party? You don't."
"If Obama and the Democrats don't want to be in power during the forthcoming economic train wreck, they would change their policies. But they're not doing that. They're doubling down on the speed, and it's full speed ahead."
"Obama is taking money out of the private sector every day. Obama is killing jobs in the private sector every day. There's no way that the private sector can grow. The government sector can and is, but it doesn't produce anything."
"Obama is a dinosaur. Obama is 50 years ago. Obama's still living in this mythical world where FDR almost had it right but he just didn't spend enough money."
"There's nothing 'forward' about Obama. There's nothing really 'progressive' in the sense that we are engaging in progress or having any, or moving forward in that way. We're going backwards. And the guy in charge thinks that he's making a gigantic transformation for the good!"

Today's poor jobs report, and President Obama's ungracious reference yesterday to the parlous state of the economy at the end of the Bush administration, will renew the debate about how much responsibility Obama bears for the current weak economy and how much of it is Bush's fault.

The May jobs report came out this morning, and it is dismal: a mere 69,000 jobs were added, and unemployment rose to 8.2%.
