It is now time for Rush Limbaugh daily quotes to have its own thread. I will post daily and comments on his quotes are welcome.

Limbaugh quotes for 3/26/09!!!!

"When Bush was president, the jokes were on him. With Obama, the joke's on us -- and it isn't funny."

"Obama signed a $500,000 book advance five days before being inaugurated to escape ethics rules and to earn a lot of money before his own tax increase goes into effect. Now, I wonder if President Obama will redistribute any of that $500,000 to his brother living in a hut or the brother who has cholera."

"So Obama opened his little statement today with the prompter, and the prompter told him again to say that he had inherited all this. This guy is a gutless wonder."

The day's going to come when you lose control of government, liberals, and then we are going to have that control. And once we win, we're going to have the new sweeping federal tyrannical powers that you initiated during your time in power, and we are going to use them against you."

I listen to Rush sometimes. Not often. But I am amused sometimes by how he can turn a phrase, or point out hipocrasy and do it in an amusing way. I listened to Air America, when they actually had a station I could pick up on my radio. They pointed out things as well as Rush does, but, of course, from a different perspective. But, damn it, they just weren't entertaining or funny. Maybe I could start a program and damn both sides of the political sprectrum and be funny while doing it and make a fortune. Nawwww. Anyway, OP, looking forwards to these Rush gems.

I try not to listen to Rush because I can understand why the Libs really hate him, he does tend to be snobby, obnoxious and cocky.

...but people really shouldn't hold that against him because he always starts making points that make so much sense you tend to forget about his arrogance and focus on the topic at hand.
This only works if you are objective.

Looking forward to the gems as well.

Living in Canada, I am exposed to a wide range of non American-centric news sources. From this perspective I am at a loss to understand how Rush Limbaugh can be taken seriously by any in the US. Well, I suppose that has to be taken in the context of a society where many people actually believe that FOX news is a real news network.

Outside of the Fox News demographic in the US, Rush would accomplish nothing more in the rest of the world except embarrassing himself.

Prediction. If the US economy tanks, Rush and Fox will claim that it is a direct result of Obama and the democrats mismanaging the economy. If the US economy recovers, Rush and Fox will claim that Obama and the Democrats had nothing to do with because the markets naturally corrected themselves but the evil liberals needlessly put the country into debt for a crisis that didn't really exist.

I listened to todays broadcast and he also advocated that every body put up christmas lights around their yards and turn on every appliance in the house to revolt against a proposed measure or whatever that would like to reduce the general electrical consumption of the average american home. He thinks that electricity has no environmental impact and that it doesn't need to be conserved for any reason and that we should all just use every volt of electricity thats on the grid. Sorta naive.

But he did have a point that it was dumb to ban the sale in california of black painted cars to reduce emissions. But again he missed the point as to why it would be a stupid idea. he thinks it's dumb because then all the limos that were black would now be white. and white is a tacky color for a limo. Not kidding he said that.

What he missed is that although it's true that black cars conduct more heat on hot days and the drivers generally use more gasoline due to the heavier usage of the air conditioner, the real problem is that the extra gasoline thats used up on hot days by AC is nothing compared to the reduction of gasoline by increasing MPG or going more electrical or hybrid. TO tackle the problem by banning black cars is a backwards way of going about gasoline usage reduction. But he could deduce that instead he said that the initiative was racist. Yep rush is the genius thats gunna save the GOP...Not.

Wrong! Sorry to burst your freedom-raft, but they are commonly known as "pearls of wisdom". And they are funny. It is why I visit his site linked via Matt Drudge.

For the record, "Rush" and "pearls" of anything is like saying a dead turkey poops gold teeth from its butt--to be used as nuggets in a popular childrens' breakfast cereal...it simply does not exist.

Limbaugh quotes 3/27

"We don't need to worry about infiltration from foreign enemies. It's being done from the White House."

"I can tell you that whatever number of troops Obama's adding to Afghanistan, he's doing it on the cheap because, while he's doing all this, he's cutting defense spending. I'm telling you: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are disasters."

"Now, if the North Koreans reply to Greta Van Susteren, that's great news for Greta. That means she has an audience in a nation with no electricity, which means they're making a special effort to see her."

"Hillary Clinton is incompetent. Going on Greta and begging the North Korean communists to call her? The scary thing is, she's twice the man Obama is."

"I understand the tradition of inviting newly elected presidents to Notre Dame, but do none of our institutions value their principles anymore or their religious foundations? Are they so easily discarded for public relations?"

"The Obama administration's back to releasing Guantanamo Bay prisoners into this country! Mind-boggling! So all of you libs who were just hell-bent on shutting down Guantanamo, are you okay with those 250 detainees being released into the neighborhood?"

"I know this is going to perhaps be offensive to some of you who are new to this program, but the truth is the truth, and this program is about truth. And the truth is that President Obama, by virtue of his votes, is the most anti-life president we have ever had in American history. This is a man who three times voted for infanticide in Illinois."

"At least we can get rid of Harry Reid in Nevada if the people in Nevada have the guts to do so -- or the brains."

Some great stuff today! Be back Monday!

....just like the Republicans to spout hypocrasy about 1) earning money and 2) "giving away" money to the needy.

Not that it's important to the millions on disenfranchised Americans, who can thank ONLY the Republicans for their grievances.

......Foreclosures and an executive bonus, anybody????

Speak to me when Bush (2) has ever written ONE speech of his (and NOT messed it up).

Speak to me when any President since Eisenhower HASN'T used a Teleprompter for an address.

Speak to me when it matters.

....just because your radio show doesn't broadcast the piece of paper in front of you, Miss Limbaugh...

Peoples. Glass houses. Stones.

One of my personal favorites:



He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He's moving all around and shaking and it's purely an act. ... This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting.
Watch video


I am also rather fond of:


Too many whites are getting away with drug use...Too many whites are getting away with drug sales...The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river, too.
-- Which - if you don't get the humor, just check out my avatar (Ol Rushbo is a big druggie)

Proof in the pudding by his quote 8 years later:


I am addicted to prescription pain medication.





"Sorry to say this, I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well." --on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, while working as a commentator on ESPN



Ahhhh, you could literally write a book about stupid Rush Limbaugh quotes.

So entertaining. His stupidity is the gift that keeps on giving.

Oh Fremd...I was waiting for you to show up


But you forgot these gems!!!!!

"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed."

"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back"(to an African American female caller).

"Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.”

And my favorite concerning Iraqi prisoner abuse....

"Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what
happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going
to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper
our military effort, and then we are going to really
hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these
people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about
people having a good time, these people, you ever heard
of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some
steam off?"

Blow some steam off? Like how you do with prescription drugs?

Honestly, heres the thing with Rush. He's just a guy who knows how to use inflammatory tactics to make money and probably somewhere along the line in the amount of time hes spent doing that he might have lost himself in this personality he created. So sad.

His drug addiction probably stemmed from the fact he knows this to be true and he can't even look in the mirror without being depressed.

The thing is not the nonsense Rush says...its that not only to people listen but they think he is actually serious. Thats why Steele couldn't believe his ears when that whole "leader of the Republican party" thing went down.

There are alot of moderate Republicans who are scared to pieces over this because they know the Republican party will never, ever recover if this is to be. You can't get those in the center to join your party if its full of blubberous fallacy.

Anywho, I bet this thread will be very successful in gathering responses.....

Mike Fox admitted he didn't take his meds...for effect. What is wrong with pointing this out?

It's not like Rush made fun of the Special Olympics.

Good thing its not near as bad as telling someone to go put a bone
in your nose. Along with those other types of racial comments.
Is anyone more special than someone else or are we not equal?
Do you realize how much money he makes a year? Do you think
he would say anything different than what he does? Yes he brings
up good points. So do I. So do you. So what. Sorry.
He is a soap boxer and hate monger who wants the country to fail.
Gee if the shoe was on the other foot(which it is for a change)
and a dem ever said that? Wow, look out. He'd be hung in texas.
I'd be ashamed to even admit I'm conservative after what the've
done to us with the intentional war, unregulated greed and massive
tax cuts for the rich, all while still justifying and hiding all of it!
And dont even get me started on the "keep us safe BS".
Repubs are for the big wigs and war. Dems are for people and peace.
We're all for more money.....

Dont get me wrong, it takes everyone to screw things up this bad.
Living beyond your means is just as unhealthy for the economy
as running a company into the ground is.
Takes something more powerfull to do it this bad; lust for power.
(which of course brings even more money)

Is this like saying a blow job is worse than starting a war?
A lie is a lie and people die....
Didnt you get the memo? Its not a right/left thing.
Its us against the mob, apparently. Ever read the bankers manifesto?
Does no one come from the RATIONAL middle anymore, anyway?
Seems to me its the same-o same-o!
The money/war train still chugs along on its own no matter whos operating.
Wonder if mccain would do any better? Cant imagine him being
anymore like bush than obama is! Good luck everyone!

he absolutely did not. More lies propagated by Rush Limbaugh. Seriously, when will you people start thinking for yourselves and stop taking what he tells you as the gospel?


#1.)


On his Web site Tuesday, Limbaugh appeared to back away from his accusation.

"All I'm saying is I've never seen him the way he appears in this commercial for Claire McCaskill," says Limbaugh. "So I will bigly, hugely admit that I was wrong, and I will apologize to Michael J. Fox, if I am wrong in characterizing his behavior on this commercial as an act, especially since people are telling me they have seen him this way on other interviews and in other television appearances."
source


Oh, and the time he DID admit to not taking it to prove a point?


In his memoir, Lucky Man, Fox wrote that he did not take his medication prior to his testimony before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee in 1998. "I had made a deliberate choice to appear before the subcommittee without medication. It seemed to me that this occasion demanded that my testimony about the effects of the disease, and the urgency we as a community were feeling, be seen as well as heard. For people who had never observed me in this kind of shape, the transformation must have been startling
source




and what of this "political ad" that got Limbaughs panties in a bunch?

Marty McFly himself:

"The irony is that I was too medicated," the four-time Emmy winner said. "Because the thing about...being symptomatic is that it's not comfortable. No one wants to be symptomatic—it's like being hit with a hammer.
source




So lets see what we have in summary from the Excellence in Broadcasting Network, and it's listeners....like the OP.



1.) We have Limbaugh making a wild and despicable accusation to a man suffering from a disease.
2.) We have that same man offering his apologies at a later date because he realized he's an idiot and made a bad decision.
3.) We have the OP coming in here claiming MJFox really did admit to not taking it prior to that tv ad(which is, of course, a total and complete lie)


The moral of the story, of course, is the only way right wingers like this can have any credibility amongst other right wingers is to make up lies and spread them to as many people as they can. This thread is proof in the pudding.



edit to add one final note: There are millions of people with Parkinsons disease....out of those millions of people, how many do you think can't afford the medication like MJF can? So.....by Limbaughs prejudices, as long as you have your medication, parkinsons is okay......if you have it you should be taking your medicine so we dont have to worry about you.

Who cares if he chose not to take his meds during the senate hearing. Really? Who cares? If he took his meds, it'd be covering up the true effects of the disease....which brings me to another wonderful characteristic of the hate mongering GOP: "Push it under the rug, we dont want to deal with it"

Gotta love that old-time thinking.

Hey...the 1950's called....they said it's time to move on and get with the picture.

Not medicated or over medicated. The effect was the same. He has admitted making deliberate choices on medication before public apperances before.

yup, and so your argument hinges that taking your medication makes the disease go away.
(you obviously didnt read my post, or you would have seen that i quoted the exact same thing you did.....sad
)
He was over medicated because he thought it'd make his shivers go away, because he does not want to be an idol of sympathy.

That does not mean you can't have compassion for his disease.
instead of saying he's faking it, why not say "he's showing you what really happens when you have parkinsons"


Oh, but El-Rushbo didnt tell you to say that yet....so i'll wait patiently until he does.

Rush quotes 3/30

"There's always been a line over which no president would cross with respect to the distinction between the public and private sectors. Obama has crossed that line."

"GM's not going to be working with the government. They're going to be taking orders from the government. It's what happens when you run around with your hand out and take freebies, loans, whatever. You become obligated."

"I cringe when I see so many people mindlessly, blamelessly, turn off the lights for a meaningless, symbolic act that will change nothing other than empower the people who want to usurp our freedom and liberty."

"Obama is taking 500-plus people on his trip to the G20. Out of 500 people, 200 of them are Secret Service and other security. But 500-plus people, that's a little excessive, I am told, from what previous presidents took with them on international trips like this."

"In some places going dark for an hour and then firing everything back up actually increased the output of CO2, the carbon footprint, because the surge in powering back up at 9:30 after this thing wiped out any gain -- and even the organizers know it's just symbolism."

I love this quote, i really do.

It says that Obama is supposed to act like the president before him.

You know....millions for Private Helicopters ??

Yeah, Obama is supposed to be just like Bush, Mr. Limbaugh.

Let's hope for that just like we hope for the doom of American. Oh wait, you've already done both.

Way to live up to your name, EIB

I support Rush Limbaugh only because he pisses off the liberals and Democrats so much.

I don't listen to the radio at work so I never hear his show but if he's tweaking them soooo bad that the POTUS actually talks about him regularly then I can only applaud his efforts.
