September 21, 2011 Limbaugh: Obama jobs bill is ‘nothing more than a wet dream tax bill’

By most calculations, the latest proposal from President Barack Obama to improve the economy has little chance of making it through Congress. And according to Rush Limbaugh, the president does not even have good intentions.

On his Tuesday radio show, Limbaugh questioned the motivations of the president with his latest jobs legislation. He called it a disincentive instead of something that would encourage hiring.

“This bill would only punish people who work,” he said. “This bill would act as a disincentive for anybody to try to improve themselves.”

According to the conservative radio host, the president’s real intention is to raise taxes.

“This is nothing more than a wet dream a tax bill,” he continued, adding that the president’s health care reform law passed in 2009 was also just a tax increase effort.

“Obamacare is not about health care,” he said. “ObamaCare is a tax bill. All Obama has done is introduce tax bills or spending bills. Nothing else.”

The BP Spill: Has the Damage Been Exaggerated? – TIME

Rush was right again, maintaining his record of being correct 99.56% of the time.

The Deepwater explosion was an awful tragedy for the 11 workers who died on the rig, and it’s no leak; it’s the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. It’s also inflicting serious economic and psychological damage on coastal communities that depend on tourism, fishing and drilling. But so far — while it’s important to acknowledge that the long-term potential danger is simply unknowable for an underwater event that took place just three months ago — it does not seem to be inflicting severe environmental damage. “The impacts have been much, much less than everyone feared,” says geochemist Jacqueline Michel, a federal contractor who is coordinating shoreline assessments in Louisiana.

Conservative protest is motivated by a love of what America stands for

Liberals and the Violence Card

Conservative protest is motivated by a love of what America stands for

By RUSH LIMBAUGH

The latest liberal meme is to equate skepticism of the Obama administration with a tendency toward violence. That takes me back 15 years ago to the time President Bill Clinton accused “loud and angry voices” on the airwaves (i.e., radio talk-show hosts like me) of having incited Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. What self-serving nonsense. Liberals are perfectly comfortable with antigovernment protest when they’re not in power.

From the halls of the Ivy League to the halls of Congress, from the antiwar protests during the Vietnam War and the war in Iraq to the anticapitalist protests during International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings, we’re used to seeing leftist malcontents take to the streets. Sometimes they’re violent, breaking shop windows with bricks and throwing rocks at police. Sometimes there are arrests. Not all leftists are violent, of course. But most are angry. It’s in their DNA. They view the culture as corrupt and capitalism as unjust.

Now the liberals run the government and they’re using their power to implement their radical agenda. Mr. Obama and his party believe that the election of November 2008 entitled them to make permanent, “transformational” changes to our society. In just 16 months they’ve added more than $2 trillion to the national debt, essentially nationalized the health-care system, the student-loan industry, and have their sights set on draconian cap-and-trade regulations on carbon emissions and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Had President Obama campaigned on this agenda, he wouldn’t have garnered 30% of the popular vote.

Like the millions of citizens who’ve peacefully risen up and attended thousands of rallies in protest, I seek nothing more than the preservation of the social contract that undergirds our society. I do not hate the government, as the left does when it is not running it. I love this country. And because I do, I insist that the temporary inhabitants of high political office comply with the Constitution, honor our God-given unalienable rights, and respect our hard-earned private property. For this I am called seditious, among other things, by some of the very people who’ve condemned this society?

I reject the notion that America is in a well-deserved decline, that she and her citizens are unexceptional. I do not believe America is the problem in the world. I believe America is the solution to the world’s problems. I reject a foreign policy that treats our allies like our enemies and our enemies like our allies. I condemn the president traveling the world apologizing for America’s great contributions to mankind. And I condemn his soft-peddling the dangers we face from terrorism. For this I am inciting violence?

Few presidents have sunk so low as Mr. Clinton did with his accusations about Oklahoma City. Last week—on the very day I was contributing to and raising more than $3 million to fight leukemia and lymphoma on my radio program—Mr. Clinton used the 15th anniversary of that horrific day to regurgitate his claims about talk radio.

At a speech delivered last Friday at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C., the former president said: [T]here were a lot of people who were in the business back then of saying that the biggest threat to our liberty and the cause of our domestic economic problem was the federal government itself. And we have to realize that there were others who fueled this both because they agreed with it and because it was in their advantage to do so. . . . We didn’t have blog sites back then so the instrument of carrying this forward was basically the right-wing radio talk show hosts and they understand clearly that emotion was more powerful than reason most of the time.”

Timothy McVeigh was incensed by the Clinton administration’s 1993 siege on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. It’s no coincidence that the bombing took place two years to the day of the Waco siege. McVeigh was not inspired by anything I said or believe and to say otherwise is outright slander. In the aftermath of the bombing, I raised millions of dollars for the children of federal employees killed in that cowardly attack through my association with the Marine Corp Law Enforcement Foundation.

Let me just say it. The Obama/Clinton/media left are comfortable with the unrest in our society today. It allows them to blame and demonize their opponents (doctors, insurance companies, Wall Street, talk radio, Fox News) in order to portray their regime as the great healer of all our ills, thus expanding their power and control over our society.

A clear majority of the American people want no part of this. They instinctively know that the Obama way is not how things get done in this country. They are motivated by love. Not hate, not sedition. They love their country and want to save it from those who do not.

Limbaugh: I’ll Leave US If Health Care Reform Passes (VIDEO)

Limbaugh: I’ll Leave US If Health Care Reform Passes (VIDEO)

Once again, a comment made by Rush Limbaugh has been distorted and taken out of context in attempt to sway public opinion about the “Leader of the Republican Party”.  On the air, Rush’s lamented that if the current Health care proposal passes that he would go to Costa Rica to get his Health Care rather than put up with the proposed system in this country.  Of course, Huffington jumped on this and interpreted the comment to mean that he was moving out of the country.  What followed was the usual diatribe and garbage comments from the bleeding hearts.  I posted these comments on Huffington:

I have friends who cry about Rush Limbaugh in much the same vile and childish language that I’m reading in these comments. The interesting fact about this is that many of these friends have never really even listened to him or tried to understand where he is coming from. I doubt whether many of you really have listened either. Anyone that has listened to Rush, as I have since his early days in NYC, knows that he only wishes for people to be the best that they can be, on their own, without the help of the government to hold their hand. When did America turn so hateful without cause and when did they start becoming so weak and dependent on the government to hold them up.

Joepferr – Seriously? You think the language in the comments is vile and childish? May I ask without upsetting you – In what way does Rush want people to “be the best they can be on their own”? Can you give a specific thing he has said to encourage us to rise up from the governments help?

20 years ago, Rush, on his daytime show said he didn’t believe that Republicans were honest about their political agenda’s, that ” their real agenda’s were hidden beneath their lies….”? Did you know that he used to call the people who followed Bush Sr. SHEEP?? Rush went from a man who had a sense of humor and as an entertainer kept his comments in their place – which would fall under the correct category – entertainment – to a man who spews hatred to the public on a daily basis.

A man who said “I hope our president fails” 1 month into his presidency? A man who is now deemed by you and many conservatives as the “VOICE OF REASON” today. A man with no experience in governing yet you fall on his every word and repeat his catch phrases at every opportunity.

The only childish whining here is coming from you and your inability to perceive hatred and evil when it’s laughing at you right in your face. Republicans eat their own so don’t be surprised one day when you are hit with this stark realization that they’re nothing but BIG GOVERNMENT

Joepf:

Yes, seriously. While it’s true that I am a strong believer in conservative principle and tend to use language that may offend some, I really am not trying to be confrontational with you or anyone else.  I am just a little guy with my own company who, through these mediums, is trying to render a few words occasionally to unload, when I get a chance.  I have come to believe that there is such a wide gulf between our beliefs that it may be impossible to come together. Your questions and comments make me believe that, like me, you may be searching for ways to do that; I applaud you for that!

Has Rush said every word correctly and do I believe everything that comes out of his mouth so as not to think for myself?  Of course not!  If you happen to tune it once in a while and catch a few words from him, it’s very easy to get the wrong impression, unintentionally or intentionally.  One really has to listen to him to understand where he’s coming from.  You seem like a nice guy and I don’t want you to take this wrong but if you did actually listen to Rush you wouldn’t have to ask the question about “being the best you can be” and “a specific thing he has said to encourage us to rise up from the governments help”.  There are daily examples of this.  Yes, he is an entertainer.  He’s making too much money to claim to be anything else.  He has an amazing large following numbering in the millions but I guess you think that all of those people are wrong too.  Remember, MysticalPippin, you are in the minority as polls suggest that more people believe in conservative principle than liberal or progressive principle.

I certainly don’t remember the comment 20 years, and I’m sure you knew I wouldn’t but I agree with it.  I admire “W” and believe him to be a good and honest man.  You need to understand that this isn’t about Republican vs. Democrat.  It’s about Conservative against Progressive.  In the end “W” was too liberal for most but the bottom line about him is contained in this quote from him that I keep over my desk, “Government does not create wealth.  The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States”.

Like this Huffington article that prompted me to comment, the meaning of your failure comment is actually inaccurate as well.  If you turned in at the right time, you could have heard him say “I hope our President fails”.  But if you listened to him rather that choosing phrases that suit your purpose, you would have heard him say, many times, that he hopes that Obama’s policies fail.  It was not a comment about the man.  Anyone with good sense would agree with that.  All that you have the do is to look at the direction we seem to be heading.  November can’t come too soon.  I hope you remember this comment in November when I expect the masses to object to his policies in numbers that you’ve never seen.

Your counter accusations about childish whining and my perception of hatred and evil is a contradiction in terms.  Just read this comment column and then tell me that I’m the one with the hate and remember everyone has the right to express themselves. But is it really necessary to spew such lies and garbage?  I try to keeping an open mind and learn how other people are really thinking.  That’s why I visit this site to begin with.  I would suggest that you attempt to not be so closed minded about the way that I think and I believe before you simply trash me with your inaccuracies as demonstrated in your last  sentence.  BIG BUSINESS, maybe, but my God man wake up to take notice how progressive and big government are sleeping together!!!!  Your comment is simply not rational.  I say these things with the upmost respect for you as another human being looking for answers.  I hope and pray you and other progressives find those answers soon before we are all living under total BIG GOVERNMENT control.
