Idiot? Rush Opens His Mouth And Removes All Doubt


Raving Lunatic

This post is dedicated to my friend Bob who has to put up with this on a daily basis.

The Prophet Limbaugh is mad..or is he..that Buckley thinks Bush should go. Pieces of the transcript.

RUSH: Okay. Now, what explains this? You know, we dealt with this once before. This is not the first time that Mr. Buckley has been highlighted by the Drive-By Media ...

For those confused as to what "drive-by media is..When you are in your car scanning the dial and you come across El Rushbo or Sean Hatteity or the like and go right on by.

in his disagreements with President Bush -- and, look, I don't want to speak for him. As to sound bite number three, let's tackle that one first because that's the easiest. I have said this, Buckley just said it in a different way when he says, "I think Mr. Bush faces a singular problem best defined, I think, as the absence of effective conservative ideology." Well, I'll climb on board. I'll agree with that. But all he's saying is that Mr. Bush is a Republican, but he is not the leader of a movement.

Not the leader of a movement? Needs more fiber.

We have a Republican president who is conservative on some things and others he's not.

Wow!! A flip flopper!

He's going about his job in his own way.

Yep-Incompetently.

That certainly is no crime,

Welllllll, actually the way he does it, legally it is.

but to the Drive-By Media, why, why, that would be an indictment. He's lost his wheels as a conservative because they are interested in conservatism losing its wheels,

The wimpy liberal juggernaut is destroying Bush.

they are interested in conservatism falling apart because they know conservatism is the foundation and the dynamic of the Republican Party.

Geez he sounds so intellectual doesn't he?

So when you have somebody as powerful as Mr. Buckley saying it, they get all excited and they start panting. (Panting.) "The Republican Party is about to fall apart! Bill Buckley says so, we've got it on tape, Saturday night CBS Evening News!"

I didn't hear anybody say the Republican party is falling apart..I heard Buckley say Bush is a failure. You know , Oxycontin can cause hearing loss so that is probably not Rushs' fault either.

That's why I spent some time in my first-hour monologue here trying to draw some similarities between the spread of communism worldwide and the attempted spread of militant Islam worldwide.

Likely wacky, total nonsensical similarities.

Let's not involve ourselves out there in the world. We don't have the power to do it. It's not our prerogative. Let's just leave it alone. We've dealt with the big enemy. We've put it down, and we can now, you know, take care of our own domestic problems and do so responsibly and so forth.

And lordy, lordy who would dare advocate taking care of domestic problems or responsibity!?

But the thing that it seems to be so many people forget here is 9/11, when we were attacked.

Not as long as Rush and the wingnuts bring it up as an excuse for every failed policy they they try to foist on their sheeple audience
.
It's going to happen more and more if we ignore it, if we put our heads in the sand and say, "Well, you know, this is not something for us anymore. The world can fight its battles without us because we're going to head back." I don't hear from any of these people who have opposition to what we're doing, their own plan, other than isolationism. Now, they don't like that word when I use it, but I don't know what else they're talking about, because I don't hear another plan. I don't hear a plan to deal with this,

I guess that Oxycontin hearing problem is rearing its ugly head again.

and it's clearly something, in my mind, has to be dealt with.

Rushs' mind...that open space he would like to open up for oil drilling.

RUSH: ... I hate to say this, but you have to trust me. There are people in this White House who would blow you away with their intellect,

Trust Rush. I think he is talking about Harriet Myers.

and the president is one of them if he chose to address you in that way. Why he doesn't is not because he doesn't think we can't understand it or won't believe it.

He just loves secrets.

There's something else going on here. There is a shadow government out there, Len. There's a shadow government going on out there that's doing its best to sabotage everything that we're doing.

Rushs' paranoia about the liberal juggernaut in the totally owned Republican government is kicking in again.. or else he forgot he was for personal responsibility.

The one mistake that Bush -- well, the one mistake -- one of the mistakes Bush

Well thanks for making that clear.

made was the new tone, when he assumed office. He didn't clean out the Clintonoids in some of these positions at the Pentagon and at the State Department, and the CIA, and they've been free to leak all this gobbledygook war plans and what have you.

Yep, Clintons fault...as usual the personal responsibility is lost in translation.

Bush was trying to show that it was going to be a new Washington. We're going to stop all this partisans infighting here. We're going to come together as a country and get along,

I guess that is why the Democrats are forced to hold hearings in a basement, their proposals are not brought up for a vote and people that disagree with Bush are called traitors and America haters. They try soooo hard!

and once again it was it was well-intentioned but naïve.

Naive to believe it was anything but electioneering.

The liberals don't want to get along with people, they want power --

The nice Republicans don't want power, and as noted above they have tried sooo hard to get along.

and they will sabotage whoever has it in order to get it back themselves.

sabotage..three syllable word. I bet Rushs' listeners went straight for the dictionary.

-- and I think this is something that probably is bothering a lot of people, may be bothering Mr. Buckley, for all I know. The idea that we can't take care of this in three and a half years is what's astounding to people, and they're right. We could. We could take care of this much sooner than we have.

For once Rush IS right!

Well, the media's on scene every day showing the civilian casualties and showing the results of the military action, and that's going to temper people because the world is going to say, "Stop it! Stop it! Stop this killing! Enough violence, enough is enough!"

Damn those people that are repulsed by violence and death..You see, Rush is use to horrible scenes. He looks at himself naked in the shower every day.

It was easier in the old days when nobody saw this stuff. Nobody saw 92,000 battle fatalities in the Pacific theater in World War II, and nobody saw the million and a half Japanese deaths so it was easier to do.

Ah the good ol days when mass carnage was easy.

It's a different set of circumstances today, and it results in the United States and its allies not using the full force of the power that we are able to project in order to appease.

We could turn that place into diamonds but we have to appease those uninformed people that oppose massive destruction of the planet.

You get caught up and worried about what other people think of you and world opinion and so forth and you're going to get hamstrung, and we're hamstrung, precisely where we are.

Ya ,who needs friends when you advocate unending war.

I have to joke about this to keep from crying.

Sadly, so much of what passes in the media for information is hateful entertainment filled with interuptions (so opposing views can't be heard and if they had anything to say the audiance wouldn't be able to hear it anyway), insults, lies, etc. or obediance to the "liberal" corporatist media establishment view, by boorish egotistical clowns
interested in fame, fortune or whatever. An indicator that there is just too much empty time and space in the media or that the people want their hate circuses. Its more than just benign neglect or passive surrender on seeking the truth. And its more than just culture in the U.S., although it is certainly a leader in this.

According to a story in the NY Times, the Bush Administration has succeded through its administrators
in cutting about Half of the more than 300 IRS Auditors who were assigned to audit those returns dealing with transfers involving gifts and estates. They couldn't get in done through a normally compliant Congress so they used other means. Reports still indicate an increase in the number of auditors doing audits for everyone else. In addition to being part of this Administrations ongoing Corporatist Class War, it will bring about more sentiment to oppose "government" which is used to attack resources for Social Security, Medicare, National Healthcare, infrastructure, etc., while increasing the "government" of serveilance, militarism and wealth transfer from most Americans to the Global Corporatists.

An article in the Financial Times and reported on MSNBC states that Richard Lugar in a letter to Secretary of State Rice says we can no longer be "passive" with others in regards to energy policies. The letter was sent particularly regarding the alleged proposed actions by Venezuelan President Chavez of cutting off oil supplies to the U.S. and trying to get other OPEC and non-OPEC nations to do the same. More green lights to invade Syria, Iran, whomever, not for the advantage of most Americans, although there will be Administration and Corporatist Media spins to that effect, but for the benefit of Global Corporatists. Regardless of whether Chavez is really planning on doing this and whatever his motives or actions, and his actions regarding citizens of Venezuela and the U.S. has certainly been no worse than those of the U.S. Administration, since when does the rest of the world exist to service the U.S.? The U.S. is supposed to populated by up-by-your-bootstraps, no-help-from-the-government types anyway. So, why should the U.S. be forcing itself on others financially, militarily, or by whatever means even if the rest of the world does (and I am not saying they all do) since we are supposedly "special"? Shouldn't we be advancing development of alternative energy sources and keeping our national resources public rather than selling them off? Oh, I forgot the braindeads response to this: 9/11, fear, guilt, 9/11, fear, guilt, 9/11, fear, guilt, etc., etc.

Ron, I am still working on getting the Blog to accept some version of my name without a bunch of numbers and symbols.

Larry, I wish I could make it work that way but blogger seems to require this from all their blogs..sorry.

If we could have the comments inserted inbetween rushs comments as here his show could be quite entertaining. Without them I have no idea how anyone can listen to this constant dividing and hate of other Americans and enjoy it. Or think they are getting anything that remotely resembles news or even thoughtful commentary.
As far as Chavez goes..once again i will climb on my soap box and say WAKE UP AMERICA it is time for a national uniting effort to alternative energy.
It is quite interesting that the wingnuts and their sheeple cry about class warfare when their own side is fully engaged, and not to the benefit of the largest number of people. So goes the land of opportunity.
