From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Inheritance!"
According to USA Today, young Americans expect to inherent wealth from their parents -- that doesn't exist.
A study by TD Ameritrade found that only 16 percent of parents plan to leave anything to their children. TD's managing director for investor services, Carrie Braxdale, says the odds are slim that young adults will inherit much, due to stock market turmoil and rising health care costs.
The attitudes of parents with at least $100,000 in assets is surprising. Almost 60 percent say leaving money to their offspring isn't a "primary concern." Only a measly 2 percent say it's their main focus. Parents are, instead, much more concerned about their own retirement.
The underlying reason is the "Great Recession." Obama's Recession is wiping out wealth today, along with the inheritance kids are expecting tomorrow. They bought into Obama's "hope and change" BS, they voted, and now their inheritance is being wiped out by the guy they believed was their savior. Talk about karma.
Add this to the mix. You have 30-something-year-olds living at home, still on their parent's health plans, an entire generation of adult slackers, mooching off their parents. So their parents can't save, they're spending the "inheritance" supporting grownups who want to live like kids. And who, thanks to Obama, can't find jobs.
So tomorrow, the kids of today, will be broke, without the inheritance they expect! And in the future, they can say they "inherited" this mess – being S.O.L. broke – from Obama!

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"We're in the middle of an absolute foreign policy disaster. We're only supposed to have one president at times like this. Well, we don't have one, unless Romney speaks up, and that's the sad reality."
"Does 'hurt feelings' justify terrorism? Is that what Embassy Cairo believes, and we must therefore avoid hurting their feelings, otherwise we should expect what we get? You know, when I hear Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claim that he wants to wipe out Israel, that hurts my feelings."
"Today is a day to praise Romney for his guts and courage for coming out, knowing full well what was going to happen to him, sounding presidential, acting presidential."
"Barack Obama doesn't think this country should be number one. If it were number 35 it'd be fine with him."
"They attack your embassy and kill your ambassador, that is an act of war. There's no question Obama's not going to look at it that way. He turned his back and walked away."
"Do you think that militant Islamists will be as hopeful of getting rid of Israel with a Republican president or with a Democrat president?"
"It's so obvious we have somebody who doesn't know what the hell to do with the economy, doesn't know what the hell to do to revive our economic plight and is totally lost -- totally lost -- on the foreign policy stage. The incompetence is frightening."
"This administration is eager to blame this country and people who live in this country, and the militant Islamists know it."
"The Obama camp, the White House, and the media all condemned Romney before they condemned the attacks. Obama thought it more worthwhile to hit Romney for what he was doing than the terrorists for what they did. Romney got hit first."
"We're looking at a coming financial collapse of this country. This cannot go on."
"The Arab Spring, what was it supposed to be? The outbreak of democracy. It was the coming to fruition of the democracy project."
"Reagan won because he was real. He believed in America. He told people he was going to make it great again coming out of a disastrous four years of Jimmy Carter and Watergate before that."
"Yes, people still want to vote for Obama 'cause he's black, because it inoculates them from the charge of racism. All of that is still in play, but we've got serious circumstances that face this country."
"Why shouldn't we be able to get answers to simple questions from this president?"
"Do you know what our foreign policy is? I defy anybody to explain it. I defy you. 'We have this charismatic, messianic guy that you love so much that you're not going to mess with him.'"
"Maybe the real source of the outrage here is Obama and the Democrats bragging 21 times during their convention, 'We killed Osama!'"

Is it looking more like 1979 every day? That's what Steve says. When you think 1979, you're thinking Jimmy Carter; actually, most people have been thinking Jimmy Carter for most of the Obama administration. The resemblances are eerie, and a good cartoonist–a great one, in Michael Ramirez's case–can blend Obama and Carter into one awful president with one awful message: »
Barack Obama, the man who never in his life has taken responsibility for anything, has started trying to shift the blame for the State Department's too-revealing response to the Cairo embassy mob attack. Our friend Jennifer Rubin has the scoop: Right Turn has learned that the ambassador to Egypt, longtime foreign service officer Anne W. Patterson, was not in Egypt during the siege of the embassy. According to sources directly »
It would not be fair to blame yesterday's disasters in Egypt and Libya entirely on Barack Obama's failed Middle East policies. The Muslim extremists who attacked our embassy and consulate are alone responsible for their actions; they are, as a former president memorably put it, evildoers. Nothing we say about American foreign policy excuses them to the slightest degree. It is nevertheless true that what happened yesterday in Egypt and »

Team Romney Must Sharpen Its Message
The November elections are a Republican landslide begging to materialize, but will the GOP make it happen? I believe so. I'm not buying these negative polls, but to increase our chances, let's sharpen the message, not dilute it.
A recent Fox News story reports that Romney and Ryan are both beginning to emphasize a bipartisan message rather than sharpen the contrasts between Obama's manifest failures and their plan for America. They must not follow this suicidal path.
Now is not the time for them to go all John McCain on us and downplay what Obama has done or to apologize for their own winning message. In the campaign's homestretch, they must bring more passion and urgency. It's not enough to calmly assure the American people that they'll do better. They must convince them they believe with every fiber of their beings that the nation, as we know it, would not survive four more years of Obama's assault -- that unless Obama is defeated, their children will not enjoy the same America they have enjoyed.
Their message should be: Sure, President Obama inherited a tough economy. But enough already. He knew and stated how bad it was, and he promised that if we implemented his agenda, the economy and debt would vastly improve. He implemented his agenda, yet the economy is still doing terribly, and the debt is dramatically worse. He still refuses to accept responsibility for his failures. He has no new ideas and offers the same failed policies and promises nothing but prolonged malaise if he's re-elected. Under a second Obama term, we'd experience catastrophic financial collapse. [ED: Then detail his Marxist background/teachings.]
Romney/Ryan rejects the defeatist idea that economic malaise is inevitable. Historically, the worse the recession the stronger the recovery, except with Obama, who has given us the worst recovery in 50 years. Romney/Ryan would implement tax and entitlement reform that would spur economic growth and greatly reduce our deficits and debt.
