    And you know what you’re gonna hear?

    You’re gonna hear a desire that everybody elevate, that everybody get better. You’re gonna hear conservatives talk about ways that everybody’s lifestyle can expand and everybody’s quality of life can improve. You’re gonna hear optimism. You’re gonna hear hopefulness. You’re gonna hear policies and strategies to make that happen. Any conservative, any genuine conservative you talk to is going to look at somebody and look at their potential and want to see potential — growth potential.

    It is Democrats, it’s the left who have contempt for people, who have no faith in people. It’s the Democrat Party who doesn’t think people have the ability to succeed on their own, Ms. Weaver! But she’s not alone. These people are just ignorant. They’ve been raised to believe this stuff just like Obama has. They buy into all these stereotypes. They’re brain-dead. They’re not even thinking. They’re just regurgitating. But the facts on the ground are just the exact opposite.

    It’s the Democrat Party that keeps people down.

    It’s the Democrat Party that breaks up their families.

    It’s the Democrat Party that has no faith in people to get by on their own.

    It’s the Democrat Party, the American left, that writes policy — and program after program — designed on the assumption that people are incapable and incompetent. That’s the basis for liberal policy! Not freedom. Not equality. Liberalism and the Democrat Party are oriented around the fact that people cannot succeed on their own and will not succeed on their own. Conservatism, on the other hand, is oriented around the belief that everybody can be great.

    And the more people trying it, the better off everybody is.

    The Democrat Party is ensuring that the lower classes stay there. It’s the Democrat Party that looks at “average people” and sees them as average — after they see whether they’re black, gay, Hispanic, male, female, or what have you. It takes about five examinations of a human being before the Democrat sees a human being, before he sees any humanity. They see groups prior to that! They see victims. “Everybody knows the Democrat Party is a party of the people and the Republican Party is the party of big business.”

    Well, no.

    The Democrat Party is a party that grows as people suffer.

    The Democrat Party is a party that expands its power as more and more people have their lives ruined in the sense that they cannot provide for themselves. The Democrat Party does everything it can to create victims! And when it runs out of victims, when too many people in this country finally find their way out of dependence, what do the Democrats do? They try to find the next group of people to become their permanent underclass!

    That happens to be the illegal immigrants right now.

    That’s who the Democrats want to be their permanent underclass, because a lot of Democrats in the permanent underclass don’t want to stay there.

    They want to improve their lives!

    They want raises.

    They want better jobs.

    How can there be improved or increased risk when Obama’s taking money out of people’s pockets who would otherwise spend it that way? This is hideous what’s happening here. And it’s frustrating to have to sit there and explain this to people, after 230 years. But, the education system in this country has been so perverted and corrupted that every day they turn out brand-new brainwashed little angry victims who think, if not for the guy that owns the dry cleaner down the corner, I’d be something. The guy that owns the dry cleaner, he owes me. I built the sidewalk in front of his dry cleaner shop. He wouldn’t have that if I hadn’t built that sidewalk. Then you say, “Well, yeah, when were you out there building it?”

    “Well, I paid for it.”

    “You did? Really?” Well, who is it paying the lion’s share of taxes in this country today? The top 1% are paying 70% of all taxes. Where is it that these nameless, faceless people are paying all this to make it possible for the rich to succeed. I’ve never understood the math. The rich got rich by stealing from the poor? It doesn’t add up to me. I’ve never understood the math on that. But, if you’re sitting out there and you think your life is worthless and has no meaning, somebody comes along and says you coulda been something if not for the guy that owns the dry cleaner store. Okay, that’s good for me. I’ll latch onto that. Yeah, I coulda been something if it weren’t for that guy. I coulda been something if it weren’t for the guy that owns the car dealership out there. I coulda been somebody. I coulda been a contender. But the car dealership guy, he has what was mine, or he has what should have been mine. And how do I know? ‘Cause Obama’s telling me every day.

    This guy cannot possibly like or respect this country. He cannot have any respect or admiration at all for the way this country was founded; the way it grew; the way it’s exceptional; the way it became a world superpower because he’s trying to dismantle it brick by brick, doorjamb by doorjamb. If the American dream is a giant mansion, Obama’s going at it door by door and ripping it apart. And there are too many doors being torn apart in this mansion for this to be accidental or circumstantial or coincidental. And it’s been going on for too long now, three-and-a-half years, for it to be just somebody who doesn’t get it and who’s wrong.

    No other way to put this now. He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. He was raised by a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep in Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced by the professorate, the faculty lounge. Moves to Chicago. Oh, yeah, that’s a great environment to grow up in. Home of the radical left movement, hooks up with Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Rashid Khalidi, Tony Rezko. He’s out there claiming that Romney’s a felon, when Romney doesn’t even know any, and half of Obama’s inner circle are felons.

    RUSH: I just got a note from a legal eagle buddy of mine who says, “You know, Rush, it just occurred to me listening to you, if Obama even handed one of his friends a joint, or gave them some blow, he’s a felon. The law doesn’t require money to be exchanged. All you need to do is distribute drugs and you have committed a felony.” Now, do we really think Obama never gave weed to one of his buddies or any coke? We know, he admits he passes it around. What are they doing, chonging, whatever it is in the car, they were passing the joint around. Anyway, folks, this guy is out of control. No other way to describe this

    DougZ, at the time after 9/11 and based on the misinformation, yes I did. Granted I used to watch Fox News at the time too and was mislead as millions were. I did not like the politicians (Cheney) running the war as poorly as they did. They totally embarrassed our military and our standing around the world. Too many of our finest were killed by the stupidity and lack of an exit plan by Rumsfeld and a group of madmen that wanted to profit off the invasion with no bid contracts with companies like Halliburton, etc.

    I think the liberals that celebrated that show moment were wrong!! Even if I didn’t support the war. I would NEVER want A shoe being thrown at any President, or members of their cabinet protested in other countries in the manner Ratboy shared in his post, that he thought was what Hillary deserved apparently.

  • Suikostinger

    Mitt Romney had millions in a Swiss bank account, Barack Obama campaign ad says. TRUE!!!


    Wasn’t it the right that attacked the Democrats for living in other states so they can use the loop hole to ignore taxes?

  • Suikostinger

    “you can’t make this up folks!!!!”

    Fox News caught plagiarizing a childrens website, admits no fault.


    A Fox News magazine editor, Amber Milt, is being accused of plagiarizing a children’s website for ideas she published in an article titled “10 Pranks That Will Spice Up Your Relationship.” Among the pranks she advocated to “take a picture of the toilet in your bathroom, then plug your digital camera into a computer or TV and load the picture onto your screen. When he comes out of the bathroom, start laughing and pointing.”

  • TheBoss1

    Okay, I will admit, the MAIN reason why I would like to see Pres. Obama get re-elected … I just want to see Rush Limbaugh’s fat head explode. The entertainment value in that alone would be worth it.

  • TheBoss1

    @usretiredX2 … sorry I missed you earlier. I had a meeting I had to attend. Thank you SO MUCH for asking about my recovery. It’s going well. Wednesday of this week will be four months post-operation. During my three-month follow-up visit, my surgeon was pleased with the x-rays and said the fusion was taking place as planned, but that I still had another three-to-six months to go. However, he gave me the green light to start swinging the golf club again, so I was very pleased. I see a physical therapist once a week and work out each day with the exercises he has given me. So, everything is going really well with my recovery. Thanks again for asking. I hope all is going well with you and yours.
