Sometimes, You Just Gotta Laffer
Rush Limbaugh Show, by Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here's the Art Laffer sound bite. Cookie found this. I tell you, earlier today I'm watching Fox News and Art Laffer's on, and he says, "Oh, Martha, I've never been more optimistic in my life." And coupled with everything else, I was reduced to almost uncontrollable giddy laughter. LAFFER: I'm very, very hopeful about what's gonna happen, Martha. I think this was the election not to win. We have the 2013 Taxmageddon that I think is gonna lead to a very sharp drop in economic activity and, you know, looking at 2014 I'm very excited about how the elections

Love Art Laffer and his curve. And I'm trying to be optimistic. I am just so bummed out. I feel like I have been hit by a Mack truck. I really feel bad for Romney. He did a great job and it really looked like we were going to do it. I'm so afraid for my country, and I admit it, for myself. I'm scared sh**less.

I truly believe that we would have won the election but for Sandy.. the polls moved just enough for Obama to win.

I am convinced this was not accident, or misfortune. It was an act of God.

The problem is that while politically Obama's continued failure may eventually help the country (I'm not sure how), there are real people with families who are going to suffer immeasurably. Many already have for the past 4 years. Now we're going to drag it on for another 4 years.

Sorry Mr. Laffer. There is nothing funny here. Nothing at all.

Laffer is spot on. The only way to deal with the second Dear Leader's second regime is to laugh at it. As an aside, laughing at liberals makes them absolutely apoplectic. Laughter is the only sober response to absurdity.

Obama is the dog that chased and finally caught the car, now the shatstorm that follows will belong to him and the despicable democrat party.

The GOP should not give a inch, let them own what happens next, lock, stock and barrel.

While Laffer may be right, I concur with #s 1 & 3. I, along with many others, have been on the wrong end of this, much to our detriment and our families futures. I don't need another 4 years of steep economic decline. This election should have been like 1980. I shouldn't have to wait until 2016 and hope for, what?

What are we supposed to do; be like the Russians and stay drunk on cheap vodka and lower our life expectancy to 60 or less just so we can "ease the pain"?

Maybe Limbaugh and Laffer can laugh. I can't.

I do agree with Laffer .... Team 44, the NYTimes, WPost, B'berg, NBC, etc. are the ones facing the steep slope with the obviously wrong plan & delusional hero worship agitprop news coverage.

Maybe Team 44 can recruit New Jersey Governor Christie to head FEMA

As your parents probably told you, you made your bed, now lie in it. Obama was re-elected, and the whole Country will suffer, and many of them will be those who voted for him. They will rue the day because they stand to lose jobs, incur a depression and/or inflation, definitely incur far high health insurance premiums, and on and on. I fully expand whole companies to move production out of the USA, if they don't move out entirely.
Its already begun as businesses are learning exactly what is in the Obamacare law and they cannot live with it.

I hope the people who voted for Obama and his policies really do put it together when the real suffering begins. I hope they are smart enough! Based on what we have seen so far, they may just look for someone else to blame. These people are just not very bright.

We take it like the founders: with our life and fortunes, for the future of our beloved country.

Face it, Romney would have just been a slower boil of the frog. If we have to have this happen--and with half the country thinking 0bama's the guy, we do--then let's get it over with. Let's turn up the flame until the frog jumps out of the pot. Anything else is just a slow march to the inevitable. I'd rather fight myself, now, than leave it to my kids or my grandkids to do.

Let's roll!

So now we filled the arsonist's gas can. Great, they will get everything they want and that will show parasites and dreamers how wrong they were. Nifty unless the country goes into a super depression, because we ARE at Great Depression levels in many areas right now. Then there is the matter of a ACLU, Marxist, Supreme Court. All they will do is tear up the constitution and reinterpret laws and amendments into ways even the most paranoid Alex Jones fan can't imagine. Yeah, we sure lucked out.

I do have an evil thought that those who voted for him should get what they asked for.... but I also realize that Obama gives waivers to his pals.

Financially, we will be in horrid shape the next 4 years. My real concern is we will lose all freedoms to UN control of our lives. If the house can stop it... we'll see.

I think some folks have forgotten who initiates Laws in this Country. According to the Constitution the House does. Then it goes to the Senate then to the President for signature.

I laughed hysterically when Harry Reid claimed that the Republicans were blocking progress. Doesn't he have an IQ high enough to look in a mirror? The Senate has blocked every move made by the Republican House.

The Democrats have not come up with a budget for over 3 years, yet they have blocked every budget that the Republicans came up with. So I defy Hypocrite Reid to state who the blocker is here.

The Senate Democrats should be ashamed of themselves and fire Harry from his position. But since Democrats have no clue what Shame is they won't. I think they are in Ted Kennedy's car.

Hit the button too quick. I meant to add, at the bottom of Limbaugh's article are two stories. One business man fired 22 employees on Wednesday morning, and Boeing is now going to lay of 30% of its employees.

Are the liberals proud yet?

Here's the question......Will PURIST republicans cost us the elections in 2014 and 2016 like they did in 2012? WIll we even HAVE elections in 2016 after the PURISTS sold out the country waiting for their perfect non-existent candidate?

MONROE, La. — In a matter of days, Republican Vance McAllister has gone from being the unlikely congressman — a special election winner who trounced his party´s establishment candidate — to the "kissing congressman," a faith-and-family politician caught on video embracing an aide married to one of his friends. Amid some calls for his resignation, he has said he will respect the verdict of his constituents this fall. Residents interviewed here by The Associated Press expressed disappointment, but not surprise.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A serial killer was put to death Thursday in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it gets its lethal injection drug. Tommy Lynn Sells, 49, was the first inmate to be injected with a dose of newly replenished pentobarbital that Texas prison officials obtained to replace an expired supply of the powerful sedative. Sells declined to give a statement. As the drug began flowing into his arms inside the death chamber in Huntsville, Sells took a few breaths, his eyes closed and he began to snore.

PITTSBURGH – A 5-year-old bows her head at lunch to say Grace before she eats may be considered cute and heartwarming by some. That was not the case for a student in Florida. The young girl was told by a school lunchroom supervisor that her actions were wrong. The girl’s father, Marcos Perez, is outraged to the point where he is considering homeschooling his child. Today, the Liberty Institute sent a letter to the school administrators demanding they stop allowing religious discrimination, which is in violation of not only state, but federal law. The school denies the incident.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith appeared on Arsenio Hall and gave a stirring commentary regarding L.A. Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant’s unorthodox comments on why he wouldn’t want to wear a hoodie in honor of slain young black man Trayvon Martin. On the night of February 26, 2012, the 17-year-old Martin was killed by “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman after an altercation; after a jury acquitted Zimmerman in July of 2013 on manslaughter charges, it ignited a public outrage in many communities across the nation.

East Lansing, Mich., The stories of friends and loved ones inspiring players and coaches in the NCAA Tournament often are as memorable as the games themselves. Every so often, they can transcend the madness taking place on the court. The tale of Princess Lacey and her "Superman" from Michigan State is one such story, a lesson in friendship that warms hearts before melting them. Princess Lacey is 8-year-old Lacey Holsworth from St. Johns, Mich. She continues battling neuroblastoma, a nerve cancer, all the while drawing strength and joy from Spartans center Adreian Payne.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
