Your Rush Limbaugh Echo for Monday, 10/8/12
Student NOTES from Institute seniors, not 'official'
Opening: Columbus Day, Is Elizabeth Warren working today?
Segment#1: Expect pollsters to be more honest: Romney leads
Another tremendous speech by Romney; showing presidential leadership; he finished right on time to make room for this program. Romney was rock-solid and confident. It was given amidst events in the Middle East. Military strength deters war.
It is something the Left never understood, and still doesn't. You build the B-2 bomber to prevent attacks on America and our interests. Obama's speeches on foreign policy are only his ideas—this invites attacks. Today Romney blamed the terrorists. Did you know that on the day of the Benghazi attack our ambassador asked for protection and was denied?
Americans have died under the Obama foreign policy. Romney's speech was a message of peace through strength. And it was delivered like a president.
The current administration sets up green lights to aggressors; they set up the timeframe to withdraw. They have led from behind. The New Yorker magazine shows the debate with an empty chair where Obama stood. Is California 'in the bag' for Obama? So why did he go to L.A. last night? Hollywood types could mail the money in.
Polls have Romney with a 5% bounce among likely-voters and tying Obama at 47% overall. A new battleground-state-poll is out and Romney leads 51% to 35%, a +16% lead for Romney with Independents. That was before the debate. Historically, the polling becomes more honest at this stage in the election cycles.
It's funny, all the excuses being made for Obama: ((Reading various sources: Does Obama even want to win? Has he been overrated? Has Obama become bored as POTUS? JFKerry is to be blamed.)) JFKerry (who served in Vietnam) went soft on Obama because he wants to be Foreign Secretary?
On the other hand, Portman was a great sparing partner for Romney,
> > > "Get him out of here—I'd rather face Obama."
S#2: USA likely voters who pay attention see a great president Romney
Actually, Rasmussen counts Independents at 29% of the electorate. ((Clip-Romney: [Jihadists] attacked us . . . not the video. Perpetual war on the West.)) In blaming the video, Obama wants everybody to think it was someone on the Right, probably someone close to Romney. Secondly, Obama Regime wants everyone to think he killed UBL and al-Qaeda. NO, they are still there.
((Clip-Romney: Obama distanced USA from Israel, our lone ally in the region.)) True. ((Clip-Romney: Hope is not a strategy.)) He is not table-pounding, and is reasonable and presidential.
>>> Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize on the basis of Hope.
ED: This is great! It puts out the foreign policy message before the debate.
Seg#3: Contrast Barack Obama to Mitt Romney in leadership
At dinner last night, Allen West was with us. His campaign is going well and everyone flocks to him when he speaks. Media is starting to treat Obama like a candidate "Hope" and as if he doesn't have four years as president. On the other hand, Romney is being treated as if he has responsibility.
In The Regime, we don't have anybody who knows what they are doing; instead, we have BHObama who believes America was founded and run all wrong. The entire Arab Spring was characterized as Obama freedom. It was nothing of the sort, but was thinking Obama would be on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Watch Romney's speech and see who is presidential; Obama is not. The VMI cadets gave him respect and applause. Obama thinks America is the problem, not the solution. Romney will lead from the front, not from behind.
Romney's executive leadership is shining through, with the economy and foreign policy. ((Clip-Romney: I'll roll back the deep cuts in the Military . . . prevent war . . . build 15 ships per year, including submarines. [Kick Putin]. Only 3 of the 28 NATO nations meet this criteria.)) On the other hand, you have "Obama-phone!"
Iranians will not; ChiComs will not; Russia will not;
>>> but Obama wants to get rid of our nukes.
>>> They would rub their hands in glee.
Seg#4: Romney pounds home Conservatism and the Left is confused
Another observation: Washington Post ran a 'pre-buttal', "We are not going to be lectured by the guy who offended Europe." Gaffes? There were no gaffes!
It has been four years since we have had a president speak with respect for America rather than running around the world bowing and apologizing.
Don't doubt me! The Left believes all their cliques about Romney, "He gave a great performance but that is not the real Mitt Romney."
>> >> >> The Obama campaign and the Left are in disarray.
Seg#5: Drive-by Media has the narrative that Romney was just acting.
>>> But The New York Times writes it was Obama with lines not right.
Seg#6: Since when does Obama need Congress to agree with him?
(Theme Music) Good point, Sullivan Group documents me as 99.7% Right.
Jack Welch and I suggest the unemployment numbers were fudged.
"Obama didn't say his lines right that they had practiced" notes aides to The New York Times. You don't need to practice what you really believe. The Romney camp made it a debate of substance, not zingers. So who is the actor?
There wasn't one lie that Romney made up. Everything was factual. He laid out every mistake Obama has made, and Obama saw that. So Obama tried to be aloof, "Why do I even need to be here?" Obama is brilliant?
Why didn't Obama say, "You are lying" or "Are you the real Mitt Romney?" He could have asked to see his birth certificate. The president of the United States is thrown off his game by an amateur liar?
This is the first time Obama has been confronted and he forgot his lines? Either that, or he knew his prepared lines would sound so bad he didn't use them.
For two years, Republicans in Congress did not have the votes to stop Obama on anything.
>> Plus he uses executive orders to make an end run around Congress.
Segment#7: Pacifism never wins with al-Qaida Jihadists
David Axelrod gives the Talking Points from on high. He asks as the president to explain policy: "Romney lied." Who is Axelrod? He has made millions on TV going out to lie for a liar.
Three times in the last debate, Obama accused Romney of planning to raise taxes by $5TRILLION, which is as much as he put up more into debt. Finally, Obama backs away; until the next day—a sure sign of a coward. He didn't use his prepared zingers because he knew he would look ridiculous. He was naked and all alone up there at the debate and he knew it. Obama literally doesn't like Romney and how be succeeded.
((Reading NYTimes: Mr Obama made clear to advisors he was not happy debating Romney, who he disdains. He would endure it.)) Ask Obama his favorite time of the debate and he would say, when it ended.
You may not want to believe this, but I'm confident of this. Believe it!
Lara Logan (CBS state-controlled media) says there is a major lie being propagated: that al-Qaeda has been tamed. They hate us as much as ever.
>>> That wasn't supposed to happen, due to Obama, remember?
Seg#8: State-controlled US media covers up the Arab Spring failure !
Let me remind you who Lara Logan is, speaking to 1,100 in Chicago. They had to blame the video tape. She was gang-raped by the democracy-loving Muslim Brotherhood during Arab Spring. She learned the hard way. State-controlled media covered it up, brief mention. She was four days in the hospital.
Caller-MO: Romney is right-on-target. He sees America's role in the world.
The difference is striking! We exaggerate to say he bows to dictators? Democrats do it all the time, like B.Clinton doing nothing about killings in Africa.
Caller-TN: Will this debacle hurt HRClinton in 2016?
If Romney wins, Hillary doesn't have a prayer.
> Tell me how she has any reason to be in presidential consideration.
The only thing she did was save her husband's rear end.
Seg#9: Rush Limbaugh explains the 'two-fer' effect from the past
Talk of Hillary is rooted in fear; we just accept the new norm? She puts her pants on one-leg-at-a-time, just like all the other guys. She ought to be fired over Benghazi. She is 65 right now [and looking aged.]
Bill and Hillary met at Yale and she latched on. Legend has it that Bill can have anybody, which makes little sense. The legend of Hillary was that she was great and didn't need a man. But instead, she hitched her wagon to Bill Clinton (1) subordinating her own ordained future; (2) tied success to Bill and moved to Arkansas.
And when she got to AK, Bill humiliated her every day and in public with Jennifer Flowers and others. She stuck with him. He gets elected governor and she makes it all possible, forgiving indiscretions. She is owed? She ended up on the board of Walmart and made a lot in cattle futures. Then there was the 'two-fer' election and she ran the White House and HillaryCare. It's her turn now.
She was the first 'Smartest One In The World' and that was never true. She was going to be the nominee and POTUS. Then, out of nowhere, comes this skinny community organizer to knock her out of the race and throwing her under the bus. It was I that extended her chances with Operation Chaos.
>>> DNC would throw her under the bus again, no worry.
Liberals would choose somebody else again—I don't worry about the Clintons.
ED: Two-for-the-price-of-one may apply now to the New World Order / UN.
Breitbart website: Will Bill Clinton be given the Nobel Peace Prize?
Segment#10: There is one big hour of Excellence In Broadcasting left.
Seg#11: Reagan and Bush were more respectful of the Oval Office
(Music) Unemployment numbers come out momentarily. Gallup guys say the numbers look 'cooked' and The Regime asks Eric Holder to sue Gallup. The U-6 total unemployment number is probably higher than the reported 14.7% and represents real human lives. There is no positive trend. We should be better.
New normal? They are culturally and morally depraved. I thought that the election of 'W' Bush was the repudiation of Clinton lying and depravity. But now, I don't think we rebuked it—the Bush terms were just an interval.
Lowering of standards and low expectations go right back to Bill Clinton.
Ronald Reagan would never even take his jacket off in the Oval Office. Moral decline at the upper levels of leadership came in with B.Clinton; and the new norm for everybody came in with Obama. 7.8% and 14.7% total is not cool. Our ambassador in Libya dead, not cool. Debt at $16TRILLION is not cool.
Not the people responsible for this failure, but the successful in business are the target. You are the ones that are threatening and need a target on your back. It's up-side-down. There is an acceptance in the Moron Class. We are told that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are an example of what's wrong. It started with B.Clinton.
The eight years of Bill Clinton were more damaging than Watergate. We expect our leaders to be morally rock-solid as much as possible, and good leaders. If a Democrat perpetrated a 'Watergate' today, it would be accepted; and if it were criticized, the criticizer would be portrayed as a rebel rouser.
Nothing is any better as we move from 8.3% to 7.9% to elect a Democrat. Just accept the new norm? Sex in the oval office is no big deal? The Obama Campaign solicits foreign donations of under $200 so they don't have to be reported.
There are 3.5million free ObamaPhone subscribers and Abigail Pollock is an Obama bundler, $1.5million. They hosted Obama in June, $40,000/plate.
Segment#12: Why accept the Obama/Marxist "new norm" ?
www.FreedomConnector.com is by Freedom works to get you connected.
((Reading Gallup: 7.8% unemployment lacks validity.)) Why settle for this?
>> >> >> I want the 'old norm' of America back.
Seg#13: Are you respected for writing in The New York Times ?
Two professors from Colorado predict the presidential election based solely on economic conditions, and predicted last summer Romney would win. They have not been wrong since 1980. Will they be wrong this time? It is scientific.
F. Chuck Todd says Republican enthusiasm is a big problem for Obama. ((Clip: Young voters are more enthused. Hispanics were won by Obama four years ago. Less of them could turn out. And that was before the debate.)) Obama may lead in some polls, but it Obama's supporters don't show up, that is huge. Romney's tax plan will work says a Princeton professor.
China is losing its shirts on solar panels just like everyone here. NYTimes Thomas L. Freedman is an idiot.
Mary Matalin puts Leftist Paul Krugman in his place, finally. He is also an angry, lying Liberal who just makes it up. He won a Nobel Prize but he is a 'know nothing' and would put USA in the grave with his policies.
No one is going to force anyone into a voucher program, but the Obama campaign lies about it, Paul Krugman also.
>>> Obama, Krugman, and Freedman are absolute jokes.
Segment#14: Would Romney or Obama be better for farmers?
Caller-MN: I switched to Republican; how can I talk to my fiancée and family?
Do they know why they think they like Obama? Tell them only what you figure out, not what others say. "Look, if you like 47million Americans on food stamps and climbing, 25million people out of work; if you like that, go ahead. This is not the country I want to live in." They are farmers? Do they get government subsidies for not growing things? They think that will end if a Republican is elected? Look at the cost of fuel. Ask them where they saw that.
Most people vote self-interest and if they think Democrats give them what they want, I would make them feel guilty: "You want to participate in the downward spiral of the country?" and then just walk out.
>>> Get her phone number, Snerdley; I need more farmer details.
S#15: Obama congratulates Venezuela's Hugo Chavez on reelection.
> Obama can probably call David Axelrod back from helping Chavez.
Closing: Watch the NY Jets with quarterback Tebow vs 666.

So we've noted here before the "Hey Girl, It's Paul Ryan" Tumblr site, but now there's a full-blown Paul Ryan music video. All I can say is if you like the theory that the coolest campaign wins, Romney-Ryan are indeed heading for a landslide: »
The Democrats are trying to rebound from last week's disastrous Colorado debate by portraying Mitt Romney as a liar. The problem is that it is Barack Obama, not Romney, who plays fast and loose with the facts. Obama's favorite attack on Romney is his claim that Romney's tax plan involves a $5 trillion tax cut. As Romney pointed out during the debate, this simply ignores the fact that Romney advocates »
We've been following the story of the Obama campaign's slipshod fundraising methods since 2008. I took a whack at explaining what we had learned as of October 27, 2008 in the New York Post column "Dubious donations." We returned to the subject earlier this year in several posts, the last of which was "Dubious donations: Obama campaign statement." The campaign statement was issued to Rick Hasen's Election Law Blog, with »
The U.S. response to 9/11 is mostly a success story, but that story has not been without its discouraging aspects. For example, I wrote here about the hijacking of key aspects of American anti-terrorism policy by military lawyers. Another example, from my perspective, is media disclosure of U.S. government anti-terrorism initiatives, the efficacy of which depended on secrecy. In his new book Power and Constraint, Jack Goldsmith devotes considerable attention »
