Even Chris Matthews doesn’t listen to Chris Matthews. [edited]
(Via The Corner) Indeed, Mr. Barone [OOPS! York]: we knew that this was coming. Talking head Chris Matthews was instructed to take umbrage at Rush Limbaugh’s use of the term ‘regime’ to refer to this administration: “…The use of the word ‘regime’ in American political parlance is unacceptable, and someone should tell the walrus [Limbaugh] to stop using it.” Matthews didn’t stop there. “I never | Read More »
NYS’s brilliant new plan to discourage business (“Tax man at the gates”)
Is New York State trying to encourage or discourage business? From Sunday’s New York Post editorial: Tax man at the gates Last Updated: 4:25 AM, March 28, 2010 Posted: March 28, 2010 Just when it seemed as if Albany had run out of ways to suffocate New York’s economy, along comes word that tax authorities are taking a stopwatch to the state’s borders. New York, | Read More »
Mr. Ed! Socialist. Rush Is Saying What?
“Ownership has its privileges” “congress needs to equal out the audience” “there aren’t any poor people with microphones” “hell if we’re gonna be socialists, let’s be socialists all across the board” “[rush] is now opening admitting that he going to work against, and campaign against the democratic party and compaign against Obama” Mr. Red: You sir, are a useful idiot.
Rush: We Need to Defeat These Ba***rds
I’m sure you all have seen this already… …but it’s worth reiterating: “…and by repeal, I mean use every single legislative and bureaucratic tactic we can muster to obstruct, derail, and defeat them.” We must embrace “obstructionism” with pride, and effectively articulate its merits. No more bipartisanship for simply its sake; no more empty threats. We’re seeing it already in just the few days since | Read More »
Trillions Of Dollars – The Money They Are Hiding.
It’s a new chapter in the daily soap opera that has become Obama’s headlong rush to entrap seventeen percent of the national economy. It’s right out of Marx. Nothing is what it seems and nothing the Democrat Congress says will hold up to scrutiny. They lie with numbers faster than they lie about facts, if that’s possible. Obama’s Fox News interview with Bret Baier was | Read More »
You made your bed, now lie in it…
I believe that I’ve finally figured out what it will take to make the liberal proponents of Government Healthcare see things from the conservative side of the argument. Before I show you my idea though, we need to get one thing straight… conservatives are not opposed to fixing the issues that need to be fixed (i.e. helping those that truly need the help with healthcare). | Read More »
72 Hours and Counting, small wins in trickles, Heat stays on (w/UpDate)
(See my 3 PM update below) The White House announced (I think with the Bret Baier interview on Fox) that there would be a 72-hour reading period of the health care bill, pushing the vote up to no earlier than Sunday, assuming the president didn’t lie or was misinformed. He has been known to lie. This means the vote will not have occurred when the | Read More »
CBO Count…No Account – The Chief Cluck Calls In The Chicks.
There’s no CBO count as promised on Wednesday, but the word is that they are desperately trying to get the monster genie stuffed back into a three sizes too small lamp. No matter what the Congressional Budget Office does, it can’t make this trillion dollar boondoggle revenue neutral. Dennis Kucinich (D) Ohio was a really cheap vote and he sold his for the price of | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh on Net Neutrality
Rush Limbaugh weighed in on Net Neutrality. As to be expected, he’s against it. A kindly listener has uploaded it to Blip for us: Writing quickly here, I’ve only read a transcript given to me. Sadly I think he gets some points wrong. First, Net Neutrality isn’t yet a content-level fairness doctrine, but it’s true that if the FCC does as expected and deems ISPs | Read More »
America:”Screw You!”; Obama:”I Want It Now!”
You could tell just as soon as his props started filing out, most likely low-level White House staffers in the obligatory white lab coats left over from the rose garden hoopla a while ago. You could tell by the overbearing look of arrogance on his face. You could tell from the first sentence out of his mouth that there wouldn’t be a word of truth | Read More »
Making “Socialist” a Dirty Word Again
I’ve put off writing this long enough. Some weeks back while I was abroad St George posted a piece about Liberals “not of the Left” here at RS, which I’d written back in ’07. As far back as I can remember I’ve sent off an annual ceremonial email to Rush Limbaugh for his misuse of this term, reminding him that not all liberals are “of | Read More »
Post-Beck CPAC, Rush defends GOP
This post originally appeared at MatthewHurtt.com: Rush Limbaugh defended Republicans today in the wake of Glenn Beck’s criticisms during his keynote address on Saturday night at CPAC. Let’s take a listen:
Romney’s Rage: A Manifestation of Tea Party Anger?
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was recently involved in a physical altercation with rapper Sky Blu aboard an Air Canada flight heading from Vancouver to Los Angeles. While the politician’s spokesman claimed that Romney had been assaulted by a hostile passenger, the rapper (whose real name is Skyler Gordy) claimed he was actually the victim of assault. Gordy, a member of the group LMFAO | Read More »
Cramer in the tank? Not *quite*, Rush
So I’ve got Rush streaming over my iPhone while running an errand (ain’t technology grand), when he brings up a topic I’ve written a thing or two or fifteen about in this diary, that of one Jim Cramer of CNBC and how he’s handled matters political since being called into Principal Stewart’s office last winter. Rush basically dismissed Cramer as being back “in the tank” | Read More »
