Errata: We typed incorrectly the age of the last open-minded Liberal:
"Wm Raspberry was 76—mother IS 104." [Mom, 27yrs older.]
HatTip to Echo reader, rsklaroff,
RUSH: He was one of the last of the liberals with an open mind. I don't say that just because way back in 1993 he admitted that he was wrong about me. We even created a term to describe it. It's called the Raspberry Effect.
"Your best shot at happiness, self-worth and personal satisfaction — the things that constitute real success — is not in earning as much as you can but in performing as well as you can something that you consider worthwhile." William Raspberry (1935-2012).
From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "More Slush!"
President Obama claimed he was "too busy" to attend the NAALCP convention in Houston last week. We've since learned that on that day, he was being interviewed by The Oprah.
This week, Obama flew to Texas for two fundraisers, targeting gay supporters and Latinos. In San Antonio, Obama said he's running for re-election to ensure that America has the best education system from kindergarten through the post-graduate level. Nobody asked why one of his first acts as President … was to strip school vouchers from poor minority children in Washington D.C. that let them attend private schools. Like the one his daughters attend.
Obama also wasn't questioned about his new election-year plan — to create a "Master Teacher Corps." Under the plan, $100 million will be spent now, a billion later … to give teachers $20,000-a-year "bonus payments." Twenty-five-hundred teachers will launch the program; in four years that number will grow to 10,000. The goal, says Obama, is to boost achievement in science, technology, engineering, and math.
Speaking of math, let me explain the formula: A) call these "the best" teachers and pay them a bonus out of the Treasury; B) grow the program until it includes hundreds of thousands of teachers; C) in return, teachers' union donations flow to the Democrat Party. A + B = C. It's just another slush fund so Democrats can launder taxpayer money. With an added political bonus: if Republicans object, accuse them of cutting "the best" teachers. Folks, it's bait. Billion-dollar Democrat Master bait.

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Elizabeth Warren is back doubling down on this whole notion that if you got a road in front of your business, that road and the people that built it are the reason you succeeded. You have nothing to do with it. She's back; they're doubling down on it."
"Think about how frail your position must be if you really (and don't doubt me on this) think that you can score political points by associating a villain in a movie to an American human being running for office." [Obama Team has only distractions to present.]
"I can't intellectually understand why anybody would hate this country. The freedom, the opportunity... The freedom is such a big deal. That's why the rest of the world still wants to get here."
"There is a new Mitt Romney. Now, we need more than two days out of this. This needs to be the real new Mitt Romney for the rest of the campaign." [Rush has said to treat BHObama like he treated Santorum and Gingrich, and it is working. ! ]
"Vacations ought not be pressure, but they're pressure now. I got to take everybody else into account when I figure out when I'm going to do mine."
"We have not gone in a positive direction in this economy in 3-1/2 years. Everybody knows it. That's what people are talking about."
"This is what real people are living, what real people are talking about. And what real people are starting to understand is Obama doesn't care about them. And even if he did, they're starting to realize there's nothing he could do about it 'cause he doesn't know how and he doesn't really care."
"If you really think that you can score political points by associating a villain in a movie to an American human being running for office. If you really think you can do that, if you think you must do that, where are you? How pathetic is your current situation if that is a campaign strategery, trying to link a movie villain to a candidate?"
"When most people look at you like you're an idiot, does it make you feel like maybe you are an idiot? That's not how it affects me. When somebody looks at me like they think I'm an idiot, I think, 'How thick are they not to understand what I'm saying?'
"That whole 2008 campaign was deceit. The Obama team figured out that what he was: was an empty canvas. The media did such a good job of depressing everybody that Obama quickly found out he could just go out there and say a bunch of platitudes and not get specific about anything other than lies."
"This is a man conducting a war on achievers. Not just a war on achievers. Obama is conducting a war on people striving for success. And the way he's talking to that crowd in Roanoke, that's what a community agitator or organizer does."
"Most movie critics are like anybody else in the media -- sports, news, it doesn't matter -- they're all liberals."
"You prolong poverty by ensuring that people cannot provide for themselves. That's what Obama's doing here."
