Rush Limbaugh says he’s ashamed of America

If a liberal pundit of radio blabber Rush Limbaugh’s prominence ever declared him- or herself ashamed of America, the right-wing noise machine would blow a gasket.

It serves El Rushbo right, then, that THIS LEFTY is giving him a little what-for:

The thrice-divorced, draft-dodging, drug-addicted college dropout was born in 1951. So he’s lived through the Kennedy assassination, the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing along with the rest of the violent death of Jim Crow, the assassinations of MLK and Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam War, My Lai, Cambodia, Watergate, Iran-Contra, Columbine, the Iraq War, Abu Ghraib, Katrina, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook — just to name a few — and none of that made him ashamed of his country.

But a manufactured budget crisis, engineered by the GOP — now that’s a national disgrace.

What a loon.

    Rush can certainly feel free to leave this country at any time. I’m sure there would be plenty of volunteers to hold the door open for him.

  2. Will Limpbaugh America is ashamed of you.

  3. The budget crises was not “engineered by the GOP.” The idea of the sequester was first proposed by Jacob Lew, our new Treasury Secretary.

    This crybaby liberal claim that “Republicans won’t let us do whatever we want” is absurd. Nearly 58 million people voted for the House Republicans. The Democrats don’t have a mandate to do anything. Polls clearly show the public wants real cuts, not this faux stuff the Democrats have been throwing out. The fact is that it is a real crises. The debt is too high. Even if the sequester does take place, the amount of spending will still be too high.

  4. Neftali: Now you’re just making stuff up.

    You say: “Polls clearly show the public wants real cuts, not this faux stuff the Democrats have been throwing out.” What polls are those?

    According to the latest Pew poll for USA Today on the issue of sequestration negotiations, only 19% agree with the Republican position that tax increases should be off the table. A full 76% agree with the President and Democrats that the deal should involve a combination of spending cuts and tax increases.

    And here’s the best part: Even among Republicans, more favor a combination of spending cuts and tax increases to just spending cuts (56% vs. 42%).

  5. Neftali: Has it occurred to you that there’s a reason why the Republican brand is so low in the polls?

    Has it occurred to you that Obama’s favorable rating is at a three-year high?

    Has it occurred to that most Americans side with Obama on most issues?

    Wake the hell up, Dude!

  6. Why is the Republicans brand so low in the polls? A variety of reasons. The lamestream media does a much better job of showcasing the crazies from far right much more than the far left, and most media types are lefties anyway. But there are several things Republicans did to themselves. All the candidates except Romney and Huntsman last year were a complete joke, so that didn’t help. Their stance on gay marriage has never made any sense. And finally, being the instigators of a decade long war doesn’t help. But the core stuff still rings true with a majority of people. Low taxes, less government, more individual responsibility. As crazy as it sounds, the party is on a rebound, albeit barely. I think I read somewhere about 15% approval compared to 10% a year ago. Its a start.

    Obama’s favorable rating are worthless. He still has the lowest approval of any re-elected President since WWII. Its akin to saying that my Yugo is now running better. Its still a Yugo.

    Finally most Americans Disagree with Obama on every issue but national defense. Here’s the proof:

  7. Poor Neftali: He’s not only resorting to the silly Palinism “lamestream media,” he’s also denying the reality of public support for Obama’s positions on the issues over those of congressional Republicans.

    He should read this stuff:

  8. By the way, Neftali, I notice that you had nothing to say when I pointed out a couple of months ago that the total tax burden — federal, state and local — was at a 30-year-low in 2010.

    Check it out:

    It might also interest you to know that the federal budget deficit shrank by about $300 billion over Obama’s first four years and that it will be $600 billion lower this year than when he took office.

    Nef,

    Go look at your link again. Especially the table down below where ratings are given for Reps, Dems, and Independents. While it can be expected that Dems would rate Obama high and Reps would rate him low, what is the reason that Independents also rate him high? That’ why he’s in the White House and Mr. “Binders” isn’t.

  10. Craig – Are you nuts? That chart shows Independents overwhelmingly disapproving of everything Obama does except national defense. The next highest approval is 42% for his energy policy. You call that high?

    If anything, that chart only proves how Democrats are overly weird and distant from the majority of Americans with their extreme approval for Obama. Its almost creepy. In their eyes, the man can do no wrong. It proves that Democrats are the true extremists, not Republicans.

    And as far as your “Binders” meme, there’s not a ounce of truth behind it. Romney had more women in his administration than any other governor. Try looking up who Romney’s Lt. Gov. This meme is a prime example of how liberals can’t deal with facts, so they try to distort the true information.

  11. “The president and Lew had this wrong. My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.”

    Sounds like Pat,
    The thrice-divorced?, draft-dodging?, college dropout? was born in 1942 or there about,
    except his audience is 25 million, I wonder how many you reach?
    That’s right it was a medical condition…

    A bald-faced LIE. Obama and the Senate have REFUSED TO PASS ANY BUDGET FOR FOUR YEARS. Cunningham don’t quote morons who have no clue what the heck they’re talking about!

    >Neftali: Has it occurred to you that there’s a reason why the Republican brand is so low in the polls?

    A news media who operates as Democrat party activists to paint liberals as saints and conservatives as devils will net that result. You’d be one of those minions. A public who has decided everyone telling the truth about Obama is a liar.

    >Has it occurred to you that Obama’s favorable rating is at a three-year high?

    Artificially high, because people are in a comfortably numb state as everything falls apart around them, programmed to believe nothing AT ALL that goes wrong is his fault.

    >Has it occurred to that most Americans side with Obama on most issues?

    Once again the brick-headed public refuses to listen to anyone who speaks ill of this president and has chosen to learn things the HARD very painful way.

    >Wake the hell up, Dude!

    I’m wide awake, and you certainly aren’t. You’re the little kid who refuses to get outta bed to go to school in the morning.

    Nef,

    Your link says “President Obama will make his State of the Union address Tuesday with an overall approval rating slightly above 50%, but with approval that is below that majority threshold on a number of key issues.”

    While it says Obama is low on some key issues, the OVERALL approval rating is “slightly above 50%”. Got it? Unfortunately, Gallop didn’t provide any actual numbers with this, just percentages of people sampled in groups. We can’t assume the three groups were all equal in size, can we? Especially since Obama got the majority of the popular vote in the election last fall. Wasn’t the winning margin about 3 million votes?

  15. Craig: Obama’s margin of victory over Romney in the popular vote was 4.9 million — 4,970,508 votes, to be exact.

  16. I must of touched a sore spot..sorry Pat

  17. Wilson: Don’t flatter yourself. Besides, I have no idea what you’re talking about.

  18. I didn’t realize we that in common.
