"The tea parties were not even about health care, President Obama. The tea parties were about your irresponsible spending, your irresponsible growth of government, and your irresponsible power grab over individual liberty and freedom."


Here's another reason i hate Rush Limbaugh.

He blasts Obama for spending on Americans, but praises Bush for spending on Iraqi's.

Hypocrisy.
It runs rampant in the conservative party....especially when this blow hard is anywhere near.

I would rather have both sitmulus bills going to help Iraqis build then have it go toward a bank or auto company that is in trouble because of bad decisions.

I rather Iraqis get the money rather then some CEO who makes millions a year.

I rather Iraqis get it rather then have it divided up for bonuses.

By the way.

Thats exactly what the tea parties were about. So how exactly is he blasting Obama when he is basically telling the truth?

*sigh*

Let me spell it out for you line by line

this is Rush talking to Obama:

your irresponsible spending
your irresponsible growth of government
and your irresponsible power grab over individual liberty and freedom


So, then by your assertions...i can gather that you probably believe

Bush's spending on the war never happened
the Department of Homeland security was not created by Bush
and The Patriot Act came from Bill Clinton?

Well...at least you're honest with yourself....

Personally, i'd rather Iraqi's dont have anything that belongs to me.

Atleast when a Bank has lots of money, it's in that banks best interest to loan it back out.

I was against 'invasion' from the beginning. I do not think the Iraq war was good for anyone...especially America....and it's still spending money.

What you are saying is:

"I hate government spending"

but

"Its okay to spend a trillion on Iraqi's"

but

"It's not okay to spend a trillion on Americans"



....WOW

He was talking about the tea parties.

The tea parties were about the exact reasons he listed. They were about people finally getting fed up with the government.

Last time I checked the President was the government.

I'm sure your blind hatred will lead you to say something about how he should have said government spending.

He could have gone that route. But Obama is the one who said those who are protesting are just playing little games.

If someone says


"Mr Obama this is about YOUR...this is about YOUR...this is about YOUR"

They are talking to Obama.

The tea parties are about OBAMA's spending, not Bush's.

You are refusing to see that concept because of your own prejudice.
I'm sorry, but you can't be helped.

If the moronic masses want their tea parties, let them have it.

But blaming Obama for Bush's mistakes isn't going to solve anything.
Rush Limbaugh or not.

We loan the bank money and you say it is in that banks best interest to loan it back out.


Why the hell would I want my money going to a bank just so that they could loan it back to me with interest?

Why don't I just keep it?

I rather my money stay in my pocket. But if I had the choice I would give it to the Iraqi people.

Really? You are the one who has stated that they hate the person they are quoting.

Between the two of us who has admitted prejudice?

Why we listen....Rush quotes 4/30/09

"This Chrysler bankruptcy is a huge Barack Obama failure. Well, actually, at the end of the day, it's a dynamic success for Barack Obama. This is precisely what he wants to happen: the United Auto Workers ending up with majority control of this company."

"Obama will pretend to love us as long as he gets what he wants, and he's told us what he wants: he wants to 'remake America'. When I heard that he said that last night, hello blood boiling!"

"This press conference last night underscored for me how wide open an opportunity exists for an articulate, attractive, conservative candidate to take Obama and the liberal media apart and win the White House."

"Obama makes everybody think he's on their side, makes everybody think that he agrees with their point of view on things, but this man is like every other liberal to come down the path: he lies."

"The media can celebrate Obama as an effective president after a hundred days, but we can't criticize him? We can't point out the toilet that the country is about to be flushed down?"

"Obama has been able to slither between the lines, been able to say he stands for America's traditions while he trashes them. And it's not because he is so clever or so good at spin, it's because we lack the leadership to seize the moment and call him on his phoniness."

"So Arlen Specter left, and we're supposed to just give up? Sorry, my friends, but I don't buy that. For me, it's offense, baby. Or, as Al Davis would say: 'Just win, baby.'"

"The FBI is running around trying to find out if we have any sleeper cells in this country. Meanwhile, people at Club Gitmo are going to be released with no questions asked. That's the Obama plan. Hope that makes you feel better, folks."

Personally, I think Rush may have an honest-to-God working crystal ball.

I listen to him because just about everything he predicts, within a few months, at odds with conventional wisdom, comes true.

Jeez. Look at all the things he predicted about Obama, who while campaigning, tried real hard to look like a moderate.

A masquerading Marxist.

Sure enough!

That is utterly idiotic... Chrysler's problems have been building for decades and if the hedge funds hadn't refused to budge... they wouldn't be in bankruptcy... and the situation would be the same if McCain were president.

Hey, RR!

Why not look for some 'gems' from your favorite oracle regarding that nutjob Rep. Michelle Bachman, or the other crazy lady Rep. Virginia Fox.

I mean, bashing Obama?? 24/7, it's just a broken record, empty rhetoric and immature schoolyard nyah!, nyah!, nyah! garbage.

While you're at it, if you want your 'hero' to be taken seriously by people who can think for themselves, try searching for some substantitive criticisms he made (if any) about Bush. Or Bush 41. Or Reagan. Oh, forgot....you likely pray at the Altar of Reagan? Or does the "RR" mean something else entirely?

Rush destroyed Bush 41 over his renigging on his "No New Taxes" Pledge.

Rush pummelled Bush 43 over immigration.

Rush never messes with Reagan. You just don't mess with perfection!

Weeell,.(remember him saying that all the time?)... I sure dont remember
the whole iran contra whatever thing either!
(I can do a good impression of him btw)
Reagan was an actor, nuff said. Hate to burst any bubbles, so is Rush.
In other words he was the perfect politician!

It all seems like a bad movie being played out right before our eyes now.
Or its like a game show, probably jaywalking.

Can I get a great big amen for trickle up economics?
He started the-corporation is god-path we're on now.

That time is when we seriously went wrong.
If it wasnt for reagan we would have an actual energy policy
that has nothing to do with opec. Imagine that.
The only thing good he did was helping tear down the wall
and actually he was late, it was already in the works but he took
the credit for it. Kinda like bush did with the war.
Hopefully we are starting to see through the
utter bs that is constantly spouted by ALL OF THEM.
It is a big risk game and we're all expendable.
When will we ALL learn they dont care about us....at all.
Thanks for your posts KK!
Edit to add, as GC used to say, bs is the glue that holds society together.
If we have no bs to believe in(and that we're told to), we will
really come unglued then, hence the distractions. Dont blame me,
you all brought up Reagan.

If I'm not mistaken Reagan was a very good teleprompter reader too, just like Barack.

Yeah Reagan was perfect alright... perfect if you were rich, white and male or wanted to be.... but if you were poor, a minority, a woman, someone with AIDS or anyone else who was somehow occupied the margins of society... he just didn't give a rats ass about you.

RR you really need to go and meet people outside of your klan... you are sounding more and more disconnected from reality every day.

Gosh Grover, I wish I had your "stones." ( Not to mention the points to spare for telling it like it is.)

I got more "flip-flops" than a Parrot-head in Key West, so hear goes.........

We should be thanking RR. He answers your original question in OP.

We don't need to waste time listening to RL if he condenses a 3 hour program into 4 or 5 minuscule sound bites. ( Shhhhhh........He thinks he is annoying us but is actually doing us a favor.)

"Never interrupt your enemy while he is making a mistake." - Napoleon

Warm and fuzzy regards...KK

You're sounding a little bitter there!

Ou contraire!

Ever hear " A rising tide raises all boats!"? That was made popular durring the Reagan era because of his tremendously successful tax cut Reaganomics that benifited everyone.

"Tax and spend" economics had been the governmental mind set since FDR. Reagan ended a 50 year cycle by lowering all taxes and opening a flood gate of economic activity and increased federal revinues. The democratic lawmakers of that time quickly spent the surplus and called Reaganomics unfair. And ever since, liberals speak of "Trickle Down" as bad policy but history speaks for itself.

Whenever it's tried it works! LOL!

Yeah really. Have real data to back that up? I seriously doubt it. The national debt skyrocketed during the Reagan years and the average wage fell. The first three years of his term saw the worst recession we'd seen until now.

Bitter? I did a lot of advocacy work during the Reagan years for the poor through community outreach programs and I saw first hand what his policies did to those not fortunate to have been born a rich white male.

I saw mental instiutions closed and the streets flooded with the homeless mad... I saw friends dying of AIDS while the GOP was selling bumper stickers at its conventions reading... AIDS... its killing all the right people... and that senile old fart did nothing.

A rising tide lifts all boats only if the boats are sound.
