Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Today, 6/13/12
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: Now we know times are tough on everybody.
Segment#1: "Politically Correct" Liberals never stop
The cash award that comes with the Nobel Prize is reduced to $1.1million, down 20%. Will Obama blame it on Bush? Pretty soon he will blame Jeb Bush. Barack "Kill-List" Kardashian got the Peace Prize for doing nothing but talk; and I was a nominee but lost out to "Ozone" Algore.
Folks, we know this brave woman "Duck" encountering turbulence. We send our love. [Watch website to find out more.]
Once they start they never stop until they get what they want. Liberals like NYC Mayor Doomberg takes the fun out of Fun City: smoking; trans-fats; salt; big gulp drinks; and now this. City Council bored member Bruce Bladick wants to attack other diet items like movie popcorn.
Coconut oil is healthy and not available now. Part of my job at Kansas City Royals baseball was to deal with vendors. I met the head honcho and asked about the coconut oil: it holds the popcorn for two weeks and can be heated later. I have three machines through my homestead. Liberals got that banned.
And milk drinks. Where do Liberals stop? They are not content to limit themselves, they have to limit everyone else. Charley Rose asked Mayor Doomberg (we are giving Charley Rose more draw than he gets for himself.)
msNBC has stupid people and stupid broadcasting. My life is so much better when I do not listen to them or have staff get quotes from pmsNBC.
((Clip: Science will tell us what is in their best interest.)) Junk science is bogus. It is dominated by the Left and Doomberg is on the Left so listens to them. Tell us, but don't impose on us! If big vats of popcorn are not healthy, tell up, even put a big picture of a clogged artery on the outside if you want.
You might think it is a minor thing, but Liberals never stop. Where does it stop? It doesn't, and that is the point. Liberals want to limit freedom of everyone else. We are not smart enough to decide ourselves: buying a house, getting into college, healthcare, cars, SUVs, diet, everything they can get their hands on.
Liberals were wrong about salt.
Point is: Junk Science doesn't know; but they make policy on it. FDA moves to regulate cigars as they do with cigarettes. I'll torch my cigar up again. FL Republican Posey wants to block the FDA regulation on cigars. He has 23 co-sponsors. Liberals represent 30% of this country, imposing on the 70%.
>>> Minorities don't get to impose on the rest in the United States.
Segment#2: "What, me worry?", says the Celebrity in Chief
I'm nervous citing polling data in June. More people ARE paying more attention in this Economy. Obama is down 2% in NC, and down significantly among Black voters.
Obama is doing his Alfred E Neuman impression, "I'm not worried."
Tea Party is helping people pay attention. Rasmussen has Romney at 47% to Obama 43% in Wisconsin.
>>> I don't pay attention to polls that go against common sense;
>>>> but Democrats do. Their internal polling may be even worse.
Seg#3: Will Obama campaign on his record and "Who do you trust?"
A poll is a snapshot of today and indicates only a trend, if that. But professional advisors live and die with focus groups and polls. If Obama loses North Carolina, it is over. That is why the Democrat National Convention is in Charlotte, NC [a week after the Republican National Convention in Tampa Florida starting August 27.]
Obama is counting on getting over 95% of the Black vote in NC; he has 'evolved' over GAY marriage; and they causes the Black community to 'evolve' also.
Public Policy Polling group has Romney leading in NC. Obama barely won in NC by 12,000 votes. Public Policy Polling is in NC, a big bunch of Libs. It does affect what they will do going forward. Obama was at 87% last month and is down now to 76%, a loss of 11% in the Black community.
Then you throw in Wisconsin into the polling mix, and advisors are forced to face reality. I would ignore the polls, but these people won't. Traditionally, Obama is not where incumbents need to be. He is under 50%. Their fund raising is also way, way down.
Obama can't run on his record and so all he can do is try to scare people with TV spots [free or paid]. The one shoe to drop is Romneycare. Obama at his fund raisers he tells them it is still about Change and Hope. But Democrats leaders want him to change his message.
With Obama and Biden gaffes on the economy boosts Romney. If Liberals are jittery now, can you imagine if the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, in whole or in part.
David Pluff in The NYTimes talks about Obama in November, "Who do you trust?" How can he say that? Obama is responsible for 1/3 of the national debt, and Romney is not responsible for one penny of that.
Anybody could have gotten Obama elected in 2008: look at who we ran; look at what DbM did to Bush for eight years. [And Rush does not say, "Look at who was 'The First Black President', Clinton excluded."] Now, Obama is running against himself. "Who do I trust more to create an energy future?" What about Keystone pipeline and gulf of Mexico drilling and exploration.
>>> If Obama runs on his record, no wonder Democrats are worried.
Seg#4: Only NewsBusters report 164 rallies against Abortion
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-bozell/2012/06/12/bozell-its-disgraceful-networks-deliberately-ignored-rallies-protestin One of the reasons The Regime has faith in Obama is because DbM isn't reporting. NewsBusters reports 164 rallies of religious leaders and Conservative politicians against abortion, not reported. DbM didn't think it news-worthy. Instead, they report on a few nuns going against their Catholic Church.
Do you know what the nuns are doing? They are going Feminazi on us. The Catholic Church puts the clamps on them, and that is what DbM reports.
Spike Lee is predicting a hard election for Celebrity President Barack Kardashian. "People ain't got jobs, man. Obama is not helping." Take the Teleprompter away from the Celebrity President and it will be a train wreck. They are deceiving themselves.
>>> And these nuns are a bunch of Flukes [(rhymes with 'ducks'.)]
Seg#6: Even on his 'bad weeks' Obama succeeds in fundamentally
changing the America we know and love !
(Theme Music) I know it's a 'thrill and delight' to listen to me. I wish I could listen to me. So media tells us it has been a bad week for BHObama. It has not just been a bad week, but a bad 3.5 years for us (and America). Every week is a bad week, under Obama. Barack Hussein Kardashian pops up everywhere, including a Breitbart headline.
We were better off before Obama and we will be better off after Obama.
Every day, "How will this affect Obama and his reelection". To Hell with that; it offends me; what about America? What is a bad week to Obama as he flies on Air Force One, getting off the plane and asking for money? There is a new Obama ad [Black accent] ((Clip: We have his back. "I refuse to raise tuition", etc. [to cheers and hip music] register to vote for Obama.)) What about Obama having their back. Black youth unemployment is over 50%.
Look at how "President Barack Kardashian" has become popular, check Google hits. He asks for money, praise, and those he hurts the most to have his back.
The State of Florida is trying to purge illegal voters and the Kardashian Justice Department with Eric Holder is suing the state of Florida. Let a Bush Adm try that. Democrats are in a state of denial about DbM and alternate media. They can pretend that people don't know and find out.
Eric Holder supported voter suppression with New Black Panthers; he also sues Arizona for enforcing their own boarders; he give taxpayer dollars to Solyndra and other Green companies, and then won't allow oil companies to expand.
When will someone do something to change the direction of the Economy, people ask. Obama has fund-raising dinners with other celebrities, his wife and daughters flying to Spain for vacations. I'm getting weary about hearing that Obama had a bad week. The people that make this country work had a bad week.
The scary thing is what it would take for DbM to say Obama had a good week.
We have Watergate-scandals all over the place today (three of them) and all we hear about is Nixon and what nobody understands. My Father would say, "What did Nixon do?" They drummed him from office because he tried to protect his boys. I'm not saying nothing happened but where is the sense of proportion?
We have a regime that ignores federal judges on drilling moratoriums. They run money laundering. Deep Throat Mark Felt played Woodward and Bernstein like a violin. Nobody died in Watergate. Eric Holder was taunting at his hearing yesterday. He has a sense of entitlement like Obama does.
Lanny Davis mentions 'really vicious people working for Obama'. So don't tell me Obama had a rough week. We are more concerned about America. Wages haven't budged for four years. Votes in Congress has been bought, encouraged by DbM; and we are told that 8% unemployment is the new norm.
>>> Obama doesn't have 'bad weeks' — we do!
S#7: A first Black and Conservative president would have done better
Retail Sales fell 0.2% after being revised. They fell in consecutive months as reported in Wall Street Journal and that is going backwards. There were $5TRILLION in deficit spending. Pelosi said that unemployment payments would result in $2 for every $1 and so why are retail sales falling?
Caller-Black-no-accent: I would have voted for the first minority, but sorry now.
Totally understandable—what are you going to do now?
Caller-still: My wife and I will vote from Romney; we have a small business.
Obama is losing the Black community vote in North Carolina.
> A lot of White and Hispanic voters voted for Obama for same reason.
Seg#8: It is charitable to say Obama is incompetent [ignoring Marxism]
Politico reports wages are stagnant. 'Minimum Wage' harms the economy and entry-level workers. When Bush left office the price of gasoline was $1.10 and now it is over $3/gallon. People are paying attention.
The average hourly wage has gone up $0.42 over Obama's 'recovery'. Maybe it hasn't been a recovery and we are still in a recession. So Obama created a 'two-fer' with a jobless recovery and a wage-less recovery. The smarties say only Obama can do it the right way.
Obama has been unwilling or unable to make the transition from community organizer to president of the United States. ((Clip-Carville: People want to see the president dealing with deterioration.)) What deterioration of the middleclass? I thought we had turned the corner.
((Clip-Obama: I inherited a $1TRILLION deficit; we had a surplus and they turned it into a deficit, baked into the cake with their tax cuts. It is like going into a dinner party, they leave and leave you with the tab.)) Who is going to dinner while the taxpayers have no jobs?
((Clip-Obama: This crisis did not happen over night and it will not be solved over night. We did better than the decade before.)) No one believes him. Not only is it a lie, it is a lame argument. Nobody remembers the prior recession.
((Clip-Obama: He should be proud of his success, but he draws the wrong conclusion. His success is not for everyone.)) Sheer ignorance on how an economy works. It is charitable to say his is incompetent.
>>> Barack Kardashian is not rooted in understanding reality.
Segment#9: Obama's message is stuck on "It is Bush's Fault"
W-Post Ed Rogers ((Reading: Narrowing to six states, CO, IA, NV, NH, OH, WI for a combined 53 electoral votes. FL, VA, NC are now lost to Romney. Obama Team will not have the money, imagination, nor drive. The president will wear out his welcome.)) He makes a good point that if Obama spends all his time in those six states, they will get sick of him.
A Pew Research study shows that Europeans don't like Obama as much now. If the Germans can figure it out, what do Americans see. The guy has only one stump speech, "Bush's fault" repeated over and over. They tacitly admit we are in a big mess.
>>> It is exactly what we predicted Liberals/Obama would say.
Seg#10: Ed Rogers is a Conservative that writes for the W-Post
I've always thought the 2012 election would be a referendum on Obama.
>>> Ed Rogers helped with prior Republican presidential campaigns,
including presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
Seg#11: Can you believe CNN canceled the John King show?
(Music) The center of Obama's campaign: "It's Bush's fault". Lies were exposed with the Wisconsin vote, including the value of exit polls. Obama is not beating Romney by 9%. Where do we sign to get DbM recalled?
The property tax in ND went down by a vote of three to one. ((Reading: A blow to Conservative leaders. The Religious Freedom proposal also went down.)) 78% to 22% was the vote to keep property taxation. The state is flush because of their oil boom. They had $3billion surplus and $5billion expected in the next two years in state funds. In North Dakota that is huge.
They feared that Obama could kick the wheels off. What would I do, Snerdley asks. I would be sure to make sure the federal government, Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson didn't find out.
This afternoon at the White House, Tapper asked Jay Carney about economy not doing well. ((Clip-Jay: this country has been through the worst economic cataclysm. We climbed out of the hole, our primary mission.)) So it is Bush's fault, coupled with a couple of lies. Let them lie to themselves, fabulous. It will taint everything they are doing.
((Clip-Carney: Look, we are highly cognizant of the fact that 9 million jobs were lost and people are hurting. From the 4thQ of 1008 to 1stQ of 2009, 40% of personal wealth dropped out.)) I won't analyze, but not their theme.
John King's show is gone, and The Blitzer extends his show by two hours. It's strange to cancel King's 'hard-hitting' show in an election show. You could say the CNN ought to be canceled.
((Clip: I think the American people can understand three things: (1) We were in a deep Bush hole; (2) We are working hard; (3) Obama is bringing us out.)) They are heading the Carville message and not talk about the Economy — so they blame it all on Bush.
>>> We'll see how all that works out for them.
Seg#12: People are not being fooled by Obama's blame of Bush
Why didn't they call John "Breck" Edwards to replace John King? CNN called in Client#9 for a time-slot gig. They have only 57 viewers.
The Bush recession ended in June of 2009, and Obama's Stimulus was signed into law in March but hadn't gone into effect. Blaming it on Bush is bogus. The recession was over and we were coming out of it. Obama's policies began to kick in and we made a beeline to the gutter again. Someone will begin to say, "You can blame Bush no more. It isn't working anyway. Get off of it."
>>> November will be nearly four years and time for Obama to take credit.
ED: And the bad economy was due to Democrats, not Bush. Will Romney explain?
Segment#13: The only joke told on Obama is edited out
Caller-NC-trucker: Obama put me out of business per fuel-charge.
Your financial problems came also from Obama against your customers.
Hang in because it is going to get better.
Caller: You played the FL ad targeting Obama-supporter Black Americans. You will remember the "Too Cool" ad against Obama. He can use overt racial ads?
We all know the double-standard of saying Blacks can't be racist because they are in the minority. They are grasping at straws, blaming everyone else.
There was a big celebrity TV-Land show with a Don Rickles joke, edited out. He was insulting everybody, like he always does. "Obama is a friend of mine; he came over to the house and was going to mop the floor but the mop broke."
In the 2008 campaign, Bill Clinton said to Ted Kennedy, "Just a few years ago, this guy would be bringing us coffee." Clinton thought they had played the race card first.
>>> It's hard to joke about Obama (no one does) and nothing is funny.
Seg#14: Two great books ... ... ... Check them out!
You've heard me speak of my Grandfather, Rush Limbaugh, Sr. There is now a biography The Original Rush Limbaugh. It was a labor of respect and love. He never had a moral flaw and everyone who met him saw he was a gentleman. Dennis Bowman worked very hard on this and talked to many of us.
Freedom is felt and expressed in many ways and makes America great. Friedrich von Hayek wrote long ago and you can get his book from Heritage Foundation.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Sum of Fears!"
The New York Times notes "the falling value and failing business models of many American newspapers." The Times then reports on "a growing worry" that this could lead to "moneyed interests" buying papers, and using them "to prosecute a political and commercial agenda." That's rich, isn't it? The New York Times is worried about newspapers with an agenda.
Here's why. A wealthy developer, Douglas Manchester, now owns U-T San Diego, the old San Diego Union-Tribune. The Times describes Mr. Manchester as "anti-big government, anti-tax, and anti-gay marriage." He also favors building a waterfront stadium and arena to revitalize San Diego.
Manchester's paper supports those positions. But liberals complain that a sportswriter who disagreed was canned, that some public agencies have been investigated journalistically, and that some of Manchester's associates have gotten favorable profiles. But the "oddest part," says The Times, is that Manchester and chief executive John Lynch "are completely open about their motives." Lynch says his newspaper is now "pro-conservative, pro-business, and pro-military."
Now you understand why papers like The Times, and the sycophant libs who still read them, are worried. They are circling the drain by failing to adapt to a media environment that no longer belongs exclusively to liberals. And the sum of their greatest fears is imagining their own rag, one day, being bought by unapologetic conservatives.
If you owned a liberal rag, you'd be worried, too, and you should be!

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"I am Rush Limbaugh, just like the brand-new MacBook Pro, thinner and more powerful, and easy to see."
"People in the media and on the Democrat side of the aisle are coming right up against the reality here that this guy can lose. They have been under the impression that Obama's reelection was a slam dunk."
"Police and firefighters are great, but they don't create wealth. They protect it. That's crucial. Teaching is a wonderful profession. Teachers help educate people to become good citizens so that citizens can then go create wealth. But they don't create the wealth themselves."
"When was the last time you went to a police officer or teacher or a firefighter to apply for a job? They have a value, but it's not measured in the same way that traditional economic output is."
"Detroit is a petri dish for what happens with unchecked liberal Democrat power and control for decades. And what Detroit needs is a rebirth of private sector growth and entrepreneurism, people moving back into the city and rebuilding it."
"Public sector employment is up 11.4%! Unemployment in the public sector is at, what, 3%? I mean, the two are not even comparable. The public sector is going gangbusters, and it's not possible for it not to be. Obama is taking as much out of the private sector as he can."
"Obama's got an ignorance combined with an arrogant condescension about the private sector. He thinks he knows everything about it. He doesn't know anything about it. And those two things combined equal an arrogant condescension and a dangerous lack of understanding that should never occupy such a position of power in this country."
"The stimulus was used practically exclusively to either hire teachers or to ensure that they weren't fired. The stimulus was not used as it was promised: For productivity jobs."
"The jury is still out on what Obama thinks about the economy. The jury is still out on what he knows about the economy. The jury is still out on what he intends for the economy! He clearly does not want a growing and robust private sector."
"As far as Barack Obama's concerned, the private sector is where all the unfairness is. It's where the lack of social justice is. It's where the immorality is. The private sector's where all this phony American exceptionalism is."
"From CBS and the Associated Press: 'Liberals Threaten Not To Vote In November Over Disappointment With Obama.' He's not wacko enough for them. No matter where he turns, the news is not good. I don't expect it to hold up, by the way, but it's the case as it is now."
"The computer is my life. It's my primary form of communication."
"The people we have running this country, the Democrat Party, we may as well be living back in the 1930s and driving Model A's and Model T's, that they want to replace with hundred-year-old electric car technology."
"Obama doesn't take national security that seriously. He doesn't think of us as a superpower."

This new video by American Future Fund, titled simply "Fast and Furious," is an excellent, effective introduction to the scandal. Someone should spend a great deal of money to put it on television in all of the swing states: With calls for Eric Holder's resignation growing–John Cornyn's is the most recent–the time is right. The beauty of pounding away on Fast and Furious is that the administration can't respond. »
In the wake of Scott Walker's decisive victory over the Democrats in Wisconsin's recall election, many wondered whether that state will now be in play at the presidential level in November. Democrats took hope from exit polls that showed President Obama with a solid lead over Mitt Romney, but that was whistling past the graveyard, as the same exit polls got the Walker-Barrett vote entirely wrong. Today the first meaningful »
Democrats are panicking as they see the presidential race slipping away from them. Privately, they acknowledge that they don't expect the economy to improve enough between now and November to give President Obama much of a boost. No doubt unforeseeable events between now and Election Day will shake up the race in ways that we can't know, but there is at least one foreseeable event that has the potential to »
During the summer of 2009, conservative activists turned up the heat on Democratic politicians to protest the innovation-destroying, liberty-usurping Obamacare mandate. In the summer of 2012, it's squishy Republican politicians who deserve the grassroots flames.
In case you hadn't heard, even if the Supreme Court overturns the progressives' federal health care juggernaut, prominent GOP leaders vow to preserve its most "popular" provisions. These big-government Republicans show appalling indifference to the dire market disruptions and culture of dependency that Obamacare schemes have wrought. ~~~
