  • usa8888

    Hey Rat–what’s REALLY got to hurt is your big loss to Obama, and in the Senate and some House seats.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also,, the country siding with Obama on gun control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “I have never, ever seen such an open and admitted-to association between a political party and a so-called news media that exists for one reason, and that is to eliminate, wipe out, and pulverize everything I believe in. That’s never happened, at least not in my lifetime.” -Rush Limbaugh

    “We’re not in a poor economy. We’re trucking right along. Everything’s great. The government’s great. Are you having trouble getting your unemployment check? No. Are you having trouble getting your food stamps? No. Are you having trouble getting your government health care? No. What’s wrong with the economy?” -Rush Limbaugh

    The Media Has Never Been So Happy

    RUSH: So, folks, I just want to prepare you. I know to some people it’s immature, it may be unseemly, it may seem insecure. It’s not any of that. I have been making predictions, and I should call those predictions warnings, it’s actually what they have been, about the media, about Obama, about the intentions of both, their intentions toward the Republicans, what Obama’s grand vision is. I have been warning and doing so under the guise of predictions for a lot of things, for four years. But some intense stuff that I’m gonna address here today, at least in the last three to four weeks, even going into last year. I’m gonna spend some time explaining it.


    RUSH: I don’t think the news media has been this happy since they forced Nixon to resign. And that’s a tough contest. I mean, when were they happy? That was orgasmic nirvana for them back then, but I think this is even a bigger deal, because there’s so much involved in this. I mean, all the pretense is gone. It’s not just that Obama won, and it’s not so much what Obama’s plans are. It’s not so much what Obama’s agenda is, other than — and I mean this and I’ve never been more serious. I think the number one objective for these people they think has been met, and that is the elimination of any viable opposition to Obama. I think they really are ecstatic and happy over what they think now is the final nail in the coffin of conservatism. I think that has been the prime motivating factor for many people in the media, the biggest objective.

    The biggest obstacle to them has been domestic political opposition and eliminating it, getting rid of it, discrediting it, making it infinitesimally small. I think that’s what they’re really celebrating. Obama is the vessel for it, and Obama fits the bill. I mean, he’s the first African-American president, the glib, they think he loves them. It’s just all made to order. It is as though they have conquered the country and that they alone run it, and they’re drunk with power and delirious with that achievement, and they think it’s final. They think it’s over. They think it’s the end of the NRA, the end of the pro-lifers. It’s the end of any viable, serious opposition to them on anything. They think it’s happened.

    And to the extent that there’s still pockets of opposition, they feel confident they can take that out, too. They’re very confident. They see more and more conservatives caving, basically conceding and walking away from any opposition. I mean, it’s amazing. They are deliriously happy and it is the universe in which we find ourselves. Primarily it’s an Inside the Beltway phenomenon, but that’s how they perceive the whole country to be going.

    Republicans are Scared to Death of Obama Because He Wins by Demonizing Opponents

    RUSH: Reagan won in the arena of ideas. Reagan won people’s hearts and minds. Obama’s not doing that. Obama’s not winning with his ideas. Obama’s not garnering support for his ideas. This is what frustrates me. Obama is winning purely and simply by lying and demonizing his opposition.

    Nobody Seems to Care About Obama’s Hypocrisy (Except Possibly The Oprah)
    January 22, 2013

    RUSH: Four years ago The Oprah was all over the inauguration, was all over everywhere, and then Michelle (My Belle) said, you know, we gotta keep fat women out of the White House because they’re a bad example, and ever since then, Oprah’s had nothing to do with the Obamas. She jetted out of the country for the immaculation yesterday.

    Morning Update: Oops!
    January 22, 2013

    The Wall Street Journal reports that Obamacare is causing problems at our institutions of higher education. Colleges. The pesky Obamacare mandate, which requires employers to offer coverage to people who work 30 hours or more, has caused shocking consequences: colleges are forcing “adjunct professors” to work shorter hours.

    The Senate can use “reconciliation legislation” to pass a budget. See some (maybe all) of the Bush tax cuts & Nobamacare. Both passed the Senate without 60 votes. With congress being divided it makes it harder, but can be done. IMO Reid won’t bring even a budget resolution to the floor because the D’s will be on record for what they voted for…ie cuts in spending or tax increases.

    The “reconciliation legislation” is boring reading. Evidently both parties have read it & used it to their advantage. I agree with Cathy on this one. Reid could have put the House bill on the floor any time he wanted. Let the record show how each Senator voted. The D controlled Senate extended the Bush tax cuts & let the assault weapons expire, yet some folks want to blame the R’s for both. :roll:

    I think those top numbers need to be fixed….

    First Year Senator Nathan Dahm Gives a History Lesson on the2nd Amendment and the US Constitution

    What a concept. Follow the Constitution. This is the kind of Senator needed in Congress. Get rid of all those who are usurping the Constitution. All of the Democrats and a huge majority of Republicans need to be purged.

    CBO Says Electric Vehicle Subsidies to Cost $7.5 Billion With Little Benefit

    Submitted by Mark Modica on Fri, 01/18/2013 – 10:50

    I recently came across a report written by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) which estimated the cost to taxpayers for “federal policies to promote (aka subsidize) the manufacture and purchase of electric vehicles (EVs).” The piece also predicts the short-term benefits of the subsidies and includes the effects of rising federal requirements for fuel economy (known as CAFE) standards. The outlook is that federal subsidies will cost taxpayers $7.5 billion over the next few years for little or no benefit (even when including the impact of CAFE) to total gas consumption or emissions.

    The most egregious aspect of the wasteful policies is that the manufacturers are being forced to build cars (like the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf) that help them to meet CAFE standards, but that consumers do not actually seem to want to buy! The overall result is that, by offering plug-in cars that few want, manufacturers can build lower-efficiency vehicles that are offset by cars like the Volt. The non-partisan CBO confirms this by stating, “However, the tax credits have other, indirect effects: Increased sales of electric vehicles allow automakers to sell more low-fuel-economy vehicles and still comply with the federal standards that govern the average fuel economy of the vehicles they sell (known as CAFE standards).”

    The CBO report also breaks down the cost to government (they should say cost to taxpayers) for every gallon of gas saved by buyers of electric cars. The cost estimate is $3 to $7 for every gallon of gas saved. I don’t see that this cost includes lost tax revenue from gas taxes, nor would it include state subsidies. I have previously calculated that the cost per gallon of gas saved would increase to about $10 per gallon for short term leases, like the subsidized 2 year leases that have helped manufacture demand for the Chevy Volt. Ponder that logic, taxpayers pay $10 for every gallon of gas that the lessees of those Chevy Volts save. We would be far better off having these people drive gas-powered cars for two years and paying for the extra gas in full!

    We have learned from the recent “fiscal cliff” drama and subsequent agreement that our government is not really serious about making a dent in our budget deficit. A politically-driven token effort was made to increase taxes on the wealthy while wasteful spending and useless subsidies remain untouched. I’m sure that companies that manufacture wind mills and charging stations are doing their part to lobby politicians to continue the pork. Green energy subsidies are a prime example of how logic and facts are overruled by ideology and cronyism when it comes to our government’s fiscal responsibility. The CBO report confirms that.

    Gallup: Obama Average First-Term Approval Ratings Among Lowest of Post WWII Presidents

    This will make liberal’s ears bleed. Obama had a lower approval rating than Bush.

    PRINCETON, NJ — President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages. Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents.

    Obama’s First Term: Food Stamp Recipients Increased 11,133 Per Day Under Obama

    During President Obama’s first term, the number of persons taking federal food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), increased by approximately 11,133 persons per day.

    When Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, the number of SNAP recipients was 31,939,110. By October 2012, the latest month reported, they had jumped to 47,525,329.

    It’s the “majority coalition” Obama wanted to turn into hardcore voters for Democrats.

    That means the food stamp program grew by an of approximately 11,133 recipients per day from January 2009 to October 2012.
