Rush Limbaugh: ‘I Went To
Bed Last Night Thinking
We’ve Lost The Country’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 2:52:31 PM

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh offered a dire prognosis for the Republican party following last night’s defeat of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Limbaugh said that it is difficult for any candidate to run a successful campaign against “Santa Claus.” He went on to say that his last thought as he went to bed on election night was the Republican party had “lost the country.” Limbaugh said that he thought Romney and his family would have been great for the nation, but his recipe for a turnaround – hard work – is no longer accepted by

Comments:
Rush has always been optimistic in the worst of times. He sure wasn't today.

I went online to look up 2012 election numbers in Illinois, where Obama’s vote total dropped by 506,556 from 2008. In Chicago and Cook County alone they dropped by 193,736. The problem is that Romney surpassed McCain’s totals by only 56,378 statewide. This baffles me. This means that 450,000 or so voters who voted for Obama in 2008 just disappeared and did not vote for Romney. Those 450,000 voters were nowhere near enough to turn Illinois, but where in the heck did they go?

Wish he would spend less time doing commercials during his on-air time. Those spots are getting very, very annoying. One other thought: Rush has been out of touch for about ten years now. He didn't have any idea how bad the entitlement culture has become until last night. The Libs have succeeded, and to add insult to injury, he didn't tell us it was time to panic. He is now panicking. We should be too.

#1 the voters didn't disappear. It was that ACORN was fully functioning back then and so many dead people and fictional characters voted in 08.
I think it is worse that folks voted for the idiot boy than that they stole the election.
Either way of course we are *_(*)*)_(*.

Well, when you have been on the front lines of American conservatism fighting for as long as he has, it's understandable that sunny optimism was hard to find this morning.

Stop trying to pander to Mexicans and blacks, Jews and homosexuals, unwed mothers and welfare scum. Nominate a conservative candidate who will not compromise. When we run as ourselves, we do better.

Rush stated very specifically on one of his shows that he does not trade stocks or invest in the stock market. He didn't say what he does invest in if anything.
If you don't like what stock traders pay in taxes then talk to congress. The traders are just following the law.

I got to listen to bits and pieces of Rush today. I started out terribly angry at him for feeding us a false optimism. (God, I hate being lied to)...but as I listened to him I realized he was asking aloud the same questions I was asking.
How do the Republicans attract minorities? Answer is, we don't. We don't have anything to give them that the dems haven't already given them. All the Repubs have to offer is a chance at productive, satisfying work with personally earned success. No way that beats the free stuff the dems have to give. As long as it lasts. Then this country will be torn apart with blood and thunder and there won't be an America, the shining city on the hill. What an unimaginable loss.

Some of this grows wearisome: Let’s all attack Rush for being optimistic! Now let’s attack Rush for NOT being optimistic!

Conservatism is not an easy sell to natural born socialists. To this point, there really has not been any hard price to pay for the expanding dependency class. People are willing to pay $4/gallon for gas if they get EIC in return. It’s only when there is no gas that people get upset. The “fiscal cliff” is nothing but a scare tactic that will never actually happen. If it does, Congress will raise the debt ceiling and move on, because USA is too big to fail. $16T in debt is such an incomprehensible number that it literally has no meaning at all. No one could pay such a sum, and it’s clear that no one intends to.

That’s the mentality at work. There are very few adults left, so by all means pounce on the messenger.

I don't care what anyone says, many of these polls were rigged by incredibly long early voting, voting with no I.D., electronic machines that magically default select the Dem candidate, etc., etc.

After the 2010 THUMPING the Dems took, I can't believe that that many abandoned fiscal responsibility to reward the biggest debt spender in human history. There are just TOO many things not adding up here. I'm waiting for someone at the voting machine companies to come forward and admit they rigged the election, South American style.

Obama won because the Takers outnumbered the Makers in 2012. And this will not change until Takers run out of other people's money. They need to get to rock bottom before they learn that they are not entitled to the reward of people's efforts.

Neither Rush, Warren Buffet or any other investor should pay any more than a moderate capital gains tax on INVESTMENT INCOME!

You see, for it to be investment income you would have to, at some previous time, have earned it and paid the full tax rate on it. AS EARNINGS.

If you try to tax investment income at a 35% you end up discouraging investments in our country.

Obama loves it. love the feel of the lie as he tells it right out in front of God and everybody knowing he has thousands of followers and media worshipers to repeat the lie over and over, and act holier than thou against anyone who points out that capital gains investments have already been taxed.

Most of the ultra-leftist-talking-heads are no longer on the air but that's no excuse to accuse Rush Limbaugh of "escaping taxes". BTW, Conservatives do not think that way. And YES, he DOES employ many people in his businesses.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

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'

On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

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

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.
