    Rush: Republicans clueless in stopping Obama

    'If this keeps going this way, we're going to lose it all, folks'
    Published: 14 hours ago

    PALM BEACH, Fla. – Though he usually focuses criticism on Democrats, top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh is scorching Republicans as “clueless” in their efforts to stop President Obama and his health-care agenda, and what he expects to be its “disastrous” impact on everyday life in America.

    “We’re left with Obamacare, and we are left with a damaged Constitution, and we have a Republican leadership that’s clueless in how to slow any of this down,” Limbaugh said this afternoon.

    “If this keeps going this way, we’re going to lose it all, folks. Unless some people get their heads in the game and focus on what really happened here and what really is happening, we’re going to go down the tubes.”

    Limbaugh says last week’s 5-4 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding President Obama’s signature legislation is disastrous, severely harming the Constitution.

    “And apparently it hasn’t sunk in yet in the Republican establishment how outrageously bad this is,” he explained.

    “This is why Republicans and conservatives make no progress in pushing back massive government. We don’t live in Realville. Well, they don’t live in Realville. They refuse to accept the reality of what’s going on. And so they try to dress it up. They look for silver linings.

    “We’re so used to defeat that we try to find a morsel somewhere in the defeat that will make us feel somewhat comfortable and secure, in the midst of huge defeat. What we need to do and what everybody in that town needs to do is get fired up and furious even, and push back and find ways to win and beat this thing back into submission.”

    Limbaugh says Republicans and those on the political right truly need to realize, “We lost a huge case in the Supreme Court. There is no silver lining. What now has to happen is we regroup. We have to inform as many fellow citizens as possible what is in store for them, their freedom, their health care, their lives, the lives of their children or grandchildren, if this stands.

    “We have to stop deluding ourselves if we are to beat this back. We can fight to repeal Obamacare, and we must, but we have to win the next election big. We can’t tolerate any Republican capitulating in advance of this fight or accepting any aspect of Obama.”


    Seems to me that with Limpballs help and advise, the repubs are shooting themselves in the foot. Romney has so many hypocritical stands on the issues that it should be impossible for him to win.

    Rush is a smart man. He knows exactly what he is doing. There's a method to his madness. He knows he has the most listened to radio show in all of radio, and he doesn't want his listeners to become complacent in the home stretch.

    I've listened to Rush since the beginning ... sometime in the mid 80s I believe, and he is a good man and a good patriot.

    Now I know what your problem is, you are like my radical far right brother who listens to the fat toad limpballs for about 3 hours a day, yelling and belittling anyone that disagrees with his far right Ideology. He has you folks brainwashed into believing the only way is Ideological way, his intransigence is catching apparently. I'd be embarassed to admit being a fan to that loud mouthed obnoxious pain in the ass. Whether you realize it or not, he's a national embarassment and getting rich doing it too. What a sad testament to US inteligence.

    Just because you don't like the brand that is Rush Limbaugh does not make him a national embarrassment. Millions would argue that he's a national treasure I suppose. He's built an empire with the most listened to radio show there is, and there is nothing "embarrassing" about that. That being said, I'm not a fan of Limbaugh's, in fact, don't even remember the last time I listened to his show. I find him a bit of a pompous ass and blow-hard, and I don't like his bully-like tactics. But I get his appeal. He is quite good at what he does. His audience eats up what he feeds them, and at the end of the day he is paid to entertain and, as he sees it, enlighten them.

    Well CJ, you gave the exact reasons why he is a national embarassment. That so many people are duped by his "pompous", "bully-like" tactics and making him rich doing it, is an embarassment to US collective intelligence, or lack of it. Like my other brother said the other day about the Supreme Court Decision on Health care. "God I'd bet toad limbaugh is really bouncing around in his chair and flailing his arms over this one". LOL

    IF THE PICTURE THAT PAINTS ISN'T A NATIONAL EMBARASSMENT, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS !! Imagine that many duped sheeple supporting and daily following this obnoxious bouncing fat ass as he belittles everyone who is outside his Ideology. The world watches in amazement at the influence of such right wing nuts leading the Republican party to intransigence and the nations Congress to a standstill.

    Why is Rush Limbaugh still in the U.S. when he swore he would leave the country when Obamacare was declared constitutional?
    I assumed he would keep his word since he is a man of well-known integrity. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    technically the commerce clause argument was rejected. It was upheld as being a tax. For his brand of conservatism it was a hidden win as future commerce clause endeavors for the foreseeable future will not even see a vote in Congress.

    “yelling and belittling anyone that disagrees with his far right Ideology” Replace ‘right’ with ‘left’ and who do we have .... that’s right, the frantic fanatic, RLD.

    You'd be wise to spend your ample free time worrying about your problems instead of what is or isn't a national "embarassment" or what is a sad testament to US "inteligence"

    Yes Ex_MIL8 tell me why the statement is not true? You typically do this. Just refute something without a shred of anything to back it up.

    Seriously do you even know what we are talking about?


    John Roberts
    Construing the Commerce Clause to permit Congress to regulate individuals precisely because they are doing nothing would open a new and potentially vast domain to congressional authority. Congress already possesses expansive power to regulate what people do. Upholding the Affordable Care Act under the Commerce Clause would give Congress the same license to regulate what people do not do. The Framers knew the difference between doing something and doing nothing. They gave Congress the power to regulate commerce, not to compel it. Ignoring that distinction would undermine the principle that the Federal Government is a government of limited and enumerated powers. The individual mandate thus cannot be sustained under Congress’s power to “regulate Commerce.

    Indeed I do and I find it rather disturbing that a (presumably) intelligent medical doctor would give credence to anything a crank like Limbaugh has to say.

    I never gave credence to anything Limbaugh said.
    Again you did not refute 1 think I said.

    You probably couldn't tell the difference from Justice Roberts words from Limbaugh's.

    I understand that, by citing a technicality, you were seeking to justify Limbaugh's failure to vacate the US (as he vowed to do, if Obamacare was not overturned by SCOTUS). If nothing else, you appear to be conversant with the man's weasel worded and self-serving tactics.
