Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Friday, 7/13/12
Student NOTES from Institute juniors, not 'official'
Opening: It doesn't matter a hill of beans . . .
Seg#1: Stephanie Cutter is a professional disinformationalist
When Romney left Bain doesn't matter and I don't care. It doesn't matter how Romney sent his money. What matters is when Obama leaves the WH and stops spending my money! Call in on OpenLine Friday. Also, I don't care about the Condi Rice stuff.
Whitehouse in the White House, media, everywhere else: what a pathetic group and all they have is to complain about Bain. And I didn't tell anybody I wanted Condoleezza Rice on the ticket; [less important] and
With an executive order, Obama yesterday just stripped away and gutted welfare reform. It was hard to get reform past Clinton and it was working. Let there be no doubt what this man's intentions are. Now, just sitting on your couch is defined as working.
When are you in DbM going to realize and admit Marxist Obama never was what you wanted and projected onto him. If I were Romney, I would wear being CEO of Bain as running the Utah Olympics as a badge of honor, "See what I did." For Obama to be even near the WH is obscene to me, he is not qualified. Who cares when Romney left Bain, and it was not a 'felony'.
Everybody in DbM and DNC are knowingly pumping up the 'felony' charge when it has been proven false. It is like saying Bush 41 was charged with going overseas to negotiate, "It's the seriousness of the charge" knowingly politicizing.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephanie_Cutter "Democrat operative!"
Stephanie Cutter is a professional disinformationalist "When did Romney leave Bain? Now we are to be concerned with what Romney did with his money? NO! I'm ticked off.
((Clip-Cutter: Either Romney is lying or misrepresenting when he left.)) Is there just one reason you can give for supporting Obama? They have nothing!
CBS Insider Sophie Solacy ((Reading: 91% were aware of Tom Cruise divorce and only 87% were aware of the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare.)) And Anderson Cooper is marrying the muscle-bound man he knows at a gym.
CNN John King exposes what The Regime could do ((Reading: Although Romney was not working after Feb 11, 2009, the rumor could come out in an October Surprise on Christian radio.)) Low scum. ((Clip-Gergen: It is up to the Obama Campaign to prove this. Is this the kind of campaign we were promised.)) They can't prove it—it isn't true! It was proved as a lie months ago. Why is this even a story? We all know the obscene answer.
This is who the guy is; this is how David Axelrod runs an Obama campaign.
>>> No one should be surprised with lies from The Regime !
Now Fortune has obtained new evidence that supports Romney's version of events.
Seg#2: Voter turnout against Obama would be a landslide today
We'll get turnout to get rid of Obama, no matter what. ((Clip-Rove: Condi Rice is a very important voice in this election cycle, and Rush Limbaugh mentioned her.)) There was a secret meeting in Park City Utah and she knocked them out. Here is some ((Clip-Rice: Obama has never been part of the American dream [applause]. We need a change in Washington because of the emphasis of who we are.)) She correctly says America is hanging by a thread.
>>> She is revved up about it and that got everyone else revved up.
[[ED: In the clip (seemed to me) she was not that passionate.]]
ED: Some say, "Announce after London Olympics to not lose PR-visibility."
PG: I think suspense is good: Condi Rice vs Marco Rubio decision comes later.
PG: Actually, do we need help more in America with Paul Ryan than overseas?
Some of these people can serve where they do best and another can be VP.
Seg#3: 'We need to storm DC before disconcerted masses do!' Rice
Jun 22-24 ((Clip-Rice: If we don't storm DC, someone else will, it is time for everyone of us to mobilize and reform DC.)) She is profoundly worried. Buzzfeed has these extracts.
A lot of people were surprised that a 'diplomat' would speak this way. Some note that she could be pro-choice (pro-Abortion) and hasn't run for anything "and, she was pro-choice". I met her a couple of times, didn't talk to her. I've spoken to her a couple of times on the phone.
[Ditz] Katie Couric interviewed her on Abortion ((Clip-Rice: A tough topic. Abortion is a terrible thing. I don't want to see the law changed. I'm for parental notification.)) Social issues are prominent in the debate. Republicans have a cowardly view that they can be swept under the rug. Fact of the matter is that social issues are winning issues.
Sarah Palin was on with Greta ((Clip-Palin: She has more credibility than current sitting VP/president.)) Oh, she throws in with Condi Rice. ((Clip-Palin: A pro-Life candidate is important, but VP doesn't decide. The Congress does.)) Romney has said he would not have a pro-choice running-mate, and C.Rice is mildly pro-choice.
((Clip: Romney will out-spend Obama)) Another lie!
Obama is out-raising Romney even as we speak; that is all he does. Super PACs have the same right to contribute as individuals — and The New York Times and unions. Corporations can do the same thing. Now, Congressional Democrats want names of non-union people listed so they can be attacked.
>>> It is coming up Monday and Republicans should hold firm.
The more they squirm and maneuver, the more obvious they become.
Seg#4: What matters is what Obama does with OUR money
Caller-MI: Democrats construct a real problem, Whites & Blacks; if the Economy goes all the rights don't matter. Get the country back.
Stories on blogs talk about turn-out energy. Condi Rice suppress turnout? They are dead-wrong. What the Hell is going on in their minds?
If they fully implement Obamacare, more than babies-in-the-womb will die, is his point. We win by running on true principles and values! I don't know you if you don't vote for Romney.
Caller: Jeffrey Immelt was GE CEO, didn't pay any taxes, and move a division to China. He works with Obama on outsourcing all over the place.
It comes to perspective: I DON'T CARE WHAT ROMNEY DOES WITH HIS MONEY, "capital 'H', capital 'I', capital 'S', HIS money.
>>> What matters is what Obama does with MY money.
Seg#5: Obama's executive command just obliterated welfare reform
>>> >>> >>> >>> >>> I have details when we return.
Seg#6: News of gutting welfare reform is not reported — Bain distracts
(Theme Music) Traditional work requirements now have a SocSec waiver. While everyone is worried about the VP choice and if Romney left Bain in time, Obama keeps dismantling America. The attacks are purposeful.
Become a member of Heritage Foundation and search the work of Bob Rector. As part of his need to be reelected in 1996, Bill Clinton signed welfare reform put together by Republicans. Jessie Jackson wanted Clinton to change it later, but he didn't.
The prior welfare state paid for babies out of wedlock, bringing more, and a family without a Dad. ((Reading Heritage Foundation: Able-bodied adults were required to work to receive welfare. States had some flexibility but were required to implement changes. In the four years after reform, half dropped off welfare and employment surged.)) You had to find work and it worked. Federal work requirements worked, and Obama can't abide that. Those are voters.
Instead, The Regime has food-stamp promotion programs, while distracting with Bain. ((Reading: Section 11-15 under Social Security, allows to 'waive' specified parts of the law. However, it is not open-ended and must be listed in 11-15. They are deliberately not listed in 11-15, but in 11-14 so they cannot be waived.)) Yet Obama did it yesterday!
Congress Republicans knew Liberals would come along, and so enumerated what was allowed. It is not the law, but just their lawless interpretation. It is like Obamacare. [Rush reads on, commenting further. See his website.]
I'm not making this up. To get around the law that says you must work, Liberal Democrats define hula-hoops and bed rest as 'work'. It clearly guts the Law!
Have you seen this reported in DbM? It is not part of the Bain narrative.
Basic foundations and fiber of this nation are being gutted: you are rich and they are poor (because of you).
>>> All you have to do is sit on your duff and that is work enough.
Seg#7: Romney criticized Obama on promoting welfare, not work
I thought BHObama was working on creating jobs, not outsourcing. He intimidated the Supreme Court "you do not overturn Congress" and he just did that with no announcement. Romney responds, "The president's action is completely misdirected [and work is noble]." He should make a TV ad.
The welfare rolls were reduced by 50% in the first four years. Barack "Mr Jobs for you" Obama has just gutted what was creating jobs and reducing welfare.
Caller-Kate-CA: Other VP picks are pro-Life [or pro- choice]. Do you care?
Who can believe their rhetoric? It rates -2 on my scale of importance.
Caller: What Obama said about Obamacare and now welfare is hypocritical.
Worse than that: he just zeros out the process of legislation.
>>> Caller will vote for Romney with any VP, but wants it discussed.
She says Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, and Tim Pawlenty are pro-Life.
"We can't just accept anything that Romney does", she says.
Seg#8: Watchdog of America fiddles while Rome burns
CNN is reporting that 'tax on the rich' would slow economic growth by 1%. When our growth is already at 1%, which could halt any economic growth. Is that 'fair'?
I have a ban on msNBC. Do you know the origins of 'kitchen Cabinet'? It described those around Andrew Jackson. Now it is called 'racist' by a radio show host on msNBC. Romney said he would bring someone from MA to the WH from his 'kitchen cabinet'. So Romney is criticized, I kid you not. Is Mark Thompson, Black?
Early on, I warned you that electing Obama would make racism worse. Any Obama criticism is racism and it is getting ridiculous. We are surrounded by lunatics, stupid people, and we are also governed by them.
Caller-small-business: I may shut down and get a job with the others. You keep me going, my sons are in the Marine Corps. Will it get better?
You are not 'quitting' but changing your strategy. Move from Chicago. I am so ticked off today, I can't even describe it. It frosts me and frustrates me. Many people know what to do: we are hamstrung by people that are happy you are in this circumstance. More people need to realize.
>>> So we sit around and say, "When the Hell did Romney leave Bain?"
Seg#9: Obama doesn't care about people—just wants reelection
Last caller was a painter: look into painting foreclosed Chicago properties.
The country is literally crumbling except in DC where all the money is. They literally don't know even though it is their job to know. Liberals in media and the Democrat Party seem not to care. They only care about supporting Obama. What is happening that these people want more of? It should scare you.
Meanwhile, real people see their lives and businesses ruined.
>>> DbM/Liberals/Democrats are unaware and unconcerned.
Seg#11: Barack Hussein Obama couldn't run a nickel&dime store
(Music) Obama is campaigning again. He's in VA, "Why would you try something again that doesn't work? [Meaning Bush]" Doesn't he mean the Great Society of FDR? Romney should make a TV ad, picture of Alfred E. Newman and quote Obama.
It is clear that The Regime establishment had no clue about America. The unemployment numbers represent real people. Obama says there is a disconnect in Romney ads. What about the disconnect with you? He runs lies about when Romney left Bain Capital.
Forbes Magazine Kerry Hannon writes on why you should plan on working till age 70. Figures are based on Social Security as it is today. She makes assumptions.
((Clip-Obama-speaking-slowly-to-sound-thoughtful: The mistake of my first term as president was to communicate optimism.)) What a laugh. Charley Rose asks him further about Romney business expertise bringing a disaster. Obama wouldn't know the first thing about a dime store. ((Clip-Obama: A head of a hedge-fund is to make profits, not create jobs.)) He speaks against profits.
There isn't one successful CEO or entrepreneur that started to create jobs. They do so to earn money. Nobody starts a business to create healthcare for the community. With success, jobs are created and communities are improved.
Obama has not one clue about what he mentions, but he sounds eloquent. Who put these ideas in his head? Marx or Alinsky? ((Clip-Obama: I want to know his theory about how to grow the economy.)) You have a theory?
>>> You don't know Jack. [ED: Jack, who? . . . must be a colloquium.]
Segment#12: Where are Obama's college transcripts?
Not that long ago, DbM/Democrats didn't support Obama talking about the Economy, but I guess they were all taken to the woodshed and stand with Obama again.
This morning in NBC Today Show they talked to Bill Clinton about Romney and Cayman Islands, and Democrats having accounts there also. ((Clip-Clinton: I am a little surprised he only release a year of tax forms.)) How about your health records; or Obama's college transcripts. Clinton is the arbitrator of virtue?
((Clip-Clinton: Senator McConnell said his #1 priority was to defeat Obama, not get the Economy rolling.)) They are tied together.
Caller-youth: Had a speaker at school saying "coal is evil".
From 'Greening Detroit'. What does he heat his house with? Etc.
Caller-still: Polluting water, blowing up mountains, and killing animals.
>>> Of course, approved by the school/district. Hang tough.
Seg#13: Dingy Harry wants to burn the US uniforms for Olympics
Should Mitt Romney have as many holdings outside USA as Bill Clinton has girlfriends? I was going to ask the last caller but he had to do chores. They want to 'reforest' Detroit where they bulldozed houses.
Did you hear about the Ralph Loren dress uniforms for opening and closing Olympic ceremonies for USA athletes? Blue blazers, white pants and a beanie, made by ChiComs. Why would The Regime be angry? ((Clip-Dingy-Harry: I am so upset; be ashamed, embarrassed, burn them, start over.)) Just because they are made in China? Liberal-Marxist-Democrats love ChiComs.
Half of Detroit street lights could go out from lack of money. If Reid and Pelosi would just get half as mad, as over where clothes are made, when lives are ruined.
((Clip: DC mayors in the past have also been corrupt, what's new? DC has no power on the voting in Congress.)) They consider it natural. CNN asks and I'll answer: They are all Liberal Democrats. That's what they do. "the B-i-ich set me up", said Marion Barry.
> > > And there are mood-changes in Washington DC.
Seg#14: A Rush-Grandma is upset with her wussy son
Caller: My son has patents but calls 'rich' olde-fashioned. Say 'successful'.
You are Tea Party and your son is 'wussing out'. The word 'rich' has been demonized and your son doesn't want to be a target. Ask your son if 'rich' and 'kitchen cabinet' are racist.
Ask him why he is so concerned about what people think about him. Then ask him who is putting these thought into his mind.
Caller-NM-truck-driver: How can I be making $70,000/yr and others won't drive because they won't get their HazMat fee. [Hazardous Material]
>>> I would clam up, lest they hear about you in the White House.
Segment#15: It's still "the Economy, Stupid!"
Reason there are truck jobs open is the urine test, many fail drug-testing.
Ed 'Fast Eddy' Rendell doesn't like Obama criticizing Romney over Bain.
>>> We'll see if this opens the floodgates.
Closing: Have a great weekend, adios.

From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Home to Roost"
After San Bernardino, California declared itself to be bankrupt this week a local paper, The Sun, sought out reactions.
The president of the San Bernardino Convention and Visitors Bureau, Wayne Austin, called on residents to help. "We can't just lock ourselves indoors," he said. "We've got to do what we've done in the past, we have band together as a city." Mr. Austin doesn't think the city's reputation will suffer permanent harm, though bond ratings might go down.
Others aren't so optimistic. Longtime resident Dana Stidham admits she and her husband are "nervous," because they don't know "what's going to happen next." She says things aren't looking good, though they "pay really high taxes to keep the city stable." Some residents worry crime will increase if the firemen and the cops go. Others don't understand how it got to the point that the city would "just go bankrupt."
On the East Coast, the mayor of Scranton, Pennsylvania has swung the axe at state salaries. He's paying government workers minimum wage; they're suing. Bottom line in Scranton, like Stockton and San Bernardino, is that the piggy bank is empty. There's no more local government teat for the unions to suckle. It's run dry.
This is only the beginning. Liberals and unions have scammed taxpayers in cities all over America for decades. And, to quote Reverend Wright "American's chickens are coming home to roost." In this case, those chickens, are liberals!

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Obama wants to be elected president by the takers. Obama wants to be the president of the non-producers. And I'm here to tell you that our country has not gotten to the point where there are a majority of them. Now, when it comes to turnout, that's a whole different thing."
"I have to share with you the quote of the day, and it comes from Charlette Stoker Manning of the NAALCP. She told the website BuzzFeed after Romney's speech at NAALCP yesterday, 'You can't possibly talk about jobs for black people at the level he's coming from. He's talking about entrepreneurship, savings accounts. Black people can barely find a way to get back and forth from work.'"
"The Obamacare tax gets cheered because Obama has lied about every aspect of it. Democrats are convinced they can trade food stamps for votes, cash in on the ignorance of the people that they lie to. I mean it's the lowest form of politics. It's a betrayal."
"I think that across the Democrat Party there was a collective, 'Uh-oh,' combined with the fact that Romney looked good. He didn't break down during the boos. He didn't lose his composure. He didn't lose his place, kept smiling, as though he knew it was going to happen."
"How much cynicism do you have to have to sit there and think Romney purposely went in there to get booed by the NAALCP so as to benefit him with other voting blocs? I can't imagine anybody doing anything like that, not in American politics."
"That's the express reason for the NAACP's existence. It's the primary objective, is to make sure that blacks don't vote Republican. That's all it's for, 'cause it's certainly not accomplishing anything else. Is it?"
"You know, one of the biggest lies that the news media and the rest of the Democrat Party is foisted on us for the past 50-years-plus is the lie that the Democrat Party is the savior of blacks and all minorities."
"The KKK was a wing of the Democrat Party. It was the militant wing of the Democrat Party. The KKK was created to stop blacks and whites from voting for Republicans. The earliest targets of the KKK were Republicans!"
"Romney came off as a guy who wasn't pandering to his audience. He thinks Obamacare ought to be repealed. He knows that audience doesn't want to hear that. He said it, he stuck with it, and when they booed him he smiled about it. He didn't change one thing he believes in. He didn't make one alteration in a policy that he has planned. He didn't pander in any way, shape, manner, or form."
"I want to get this on the record. When Hank Johnson told the Navy he thought Guam was going to tip over and capsize because of population, I did not join the chorus of laughter."
"Barack Obama doesn't want to change what's going on. He doesn't want to improve the circumstances of this economy. It's altogether true. Barack Obama wants a bigger government, him in charge of it. He wants more people depending on it. It really isn't any more complicated than that."
"Obama ceased being black to me a long time ago. He's just a full-fledged disaster (chuckling) and it doesn't matter to me."
"We all know who tore up the black family. The American welfare state tore up the black family. The American welfare state, as personified by the federal government, assumed the role of father and husband. That's how the black family got torn up."

When President Obama looks back on his "first term," is this really what he tells himself? I'm afraid it is: "The mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and »
Orin Kerr at the Volokh Conspiracy wonders whether, in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's decision upholding Obamacare's individual mandate, liberals and conservatives are about to swap positions on the proper role of the Supreme Court. For decades, Kerr notes, liberals have tend to view the power of judicial review as an unambiguously positive thing. If the exercise of that power entails striking down statutes, then good: it means that »
Two constitutional amendments are set to be on the ballot in Minnesota this November. One is to recognize marriage as the union of a man and woman.

It is now to carry the title imposed by Ritchie: "Limiting the status of marriage to »
Plenty of uncertainty surrounds this year's election. Will Romney defeat Obama? Will the Republicans gain control of the Senate? Right now, both seem like roughly even money propositions. When it comes to the House, however, considerably less uncertainty exists. In all likelihood, the Republicans will retain control. This, Politico tells us, is the view of all three major congressional political prognotication services: Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball, Rothenberg Political Report, and »
Obama's Interior Dpt still going Rogue
The Obama administration's loathsome cowboy, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, won't take no for an answer. He's been smacked down repeatedly by federal courts for imposing a draconian, junk science-based moratorium on the oil and gas industry. Yet, the job-killing zealot and his boss just introduced another ruinous offshore drilling ban two weeks ago.
~~ ~~ ~~
Instead of haranguing GOP opponent Mitt Romney with questions about his offshore bank accounts, this search-and-destroy White House should start accounting for its offshore drilling obstructionism. Salazar's reign has been a shady, secretive and rotten deal for America.
