Rush Limbaugh Greta FULL Wide-Ranging Interview
http://www.youtube.com ^ | July 30, 2013 | You Tube

Posted on 07/30/2013 8:38:15 PM PDT by Whenifhow

Rush limbaugh Greta | Rush Limbaugh joined Greta Van Susteren for the full hour Tuesday night, and Limbaugh spent the first segment of the program bashing President Obama, sharing the "Limbaugh Theorem" for how the president governs, and taking the "slavish media" to task for not holding him accountable. He also had some choice words for Republicans capitulating too much to the Democratic agenda.

On the "phony scandals" controversy, Limbaugh admitted he was stunned that the president was able to survive 2012 with the bad economy on his back. He came up with the "Limbaugh theorem" to explain why so many people hate Obama's policies yet like him and vote for him: he's "constantly campaigning" and never governing who keeps insisting nothing that ever happens in Washington is his fault.

Limbaugh surmised that Obama could only get away with this because of the "slavish media" that will never call him out on anything. He said that most journalists are "all part of the elitist New York-Washington-Boston media academic corridor and they think they are Obama."

He admitted the 2010 midterms, while it resulted in Republican gains, were not necessarily that good for the party, because no one was "articulating an agenda" and all the Republican votes were "anti-Obama" votes, not votes for a viable alternative. He also slammed Republican leadership for brushing aside the tea party and "its conservative base on a number of issues," saying the big problem with the GOP is too much capitulation to what the Democrats want. Why doesn't the Republican Party embrace them, bring them in and try to grow and have at least come up with a way to reach out and attach themselves to these people, a majority of voters? Instead they're capitulating with what the Democrats want. And not just on this, but on immigration, amnesty, whatever you want to call it.

Watch the full segment below, via Fox News:

Speaker John “Cave-In” Boehner is the Welfare Democrat’s favorite RINO.

I wish Rush would throw his hat in the ring for 2016. He’s as politically smart as anyone we’ve seen in the last 50 years. He should test the waters and see if he has the support. He could at least give it a shot and let the chips fall where they may. His country needs him to save it.

People are ready for a new direction and it would fry the liberals brains (what’s left of them). Never mind he’s never held any office he’s already created more wealth than Obozo could ever dream of. Only problem is, would he even take the pay cut?

Limbaugh/Palin 2016 anyone?

I would vote for that ticket in a heartbeat. I guarantee that Rush and Sarah between them know enough good people to have a superlative administration. And Rush, being the smart guy he is, would have Sarah Palin so busy with putting things right that it would look like a double presidency! hellya! I’d vote for that ticket and contribute time and money for their campaigning.

The only problem with a Limbaugh candidacy is that he would not be able to endorse himself until it was too late and Karl Rove has another Rino locked in for the nomination.

We've had quite enough of Rove's Romneys and McCains.

I wish Rush would at least give it some thought. I think he could actually win.

Even if you don't win it's never wrong to try to save your country from evil.

Rush has my ears nearly every day. What he said tonight was not new nor different from what he says every day.

And therein lies the problem: he’s singing to the choir. Every day. Same choir. (although it’s always fun to see the voice I listen to. And he’s looking great, by the way).

We need (somehow) to get voices like Rush’s to other choirs. Appearing on Fox (same choir) won’t do it.

Failing that, his words are becoming meaningless, I fear, as they have been said since 1989 or so by him to us. (albeit, 20 million of us)

Let’s be real: he will never run for an office. Too much baggage. He needs to find a new tune to get 20 million of us energized. Other wise, same old same old.

Sorry to be a poop on his message, but it and us are not reaching out (as happened in the 1994 elections or when the Tea Party was “hot”).

No man or woman could possibly fix the mess we’re in. It’s so far gone that it’s going to have to all come tumbling or crashing down before it can even begin to be repaired.

Actually Limbaugh spoke to quite a number of folks he doesn’t
reach on a regular basis. Unfortunately a cable channel such
as FOX doesn’t command the viewership that the alphabet
networks do. And, of course, on any network a Rush interview
would consist of one hour of him having to explain why he
deserves to breathe the same air as the rest of the human race.
Absolutely no alphabet network interview toadie would throw
out topics and allow Rush to run with them like Greta did. That
is why he won’t do TV interviews as a rule. I would, however,
like to see him appear on a few panel format programs where
he would have the opportunity to demonstrate the art of
challenging the idiotic premises and statements of the libturd
guests.

For us dittoheads, Rush said nothing really new last night, which is like reading the Ten Commandments on a granite monument & then coming back later to see that nothing on it has changed.

For those of you in Rio Linda, I mean that about
Rush in a positive way. But the whole show was worth watching just to see the awe on Greta’s face, as though she were thinking, “Everything I have ever been told about this man is a lie!”

Running spots during DWTS, America gots no talent, Bravo channel, or American Idle is the only way to get air time with a certain demographic (uniformed or stupid people).

GREAT Image, simply GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you do Obama posing in a T-Shirt with the Jolly Roger (Skull and crossed bones) with words underneath:

FEDERAL OVERSPENDING WILL CONTINUE
UNTIL THERE IS NO NATIONAL DEBT

I got the idea from a T-Shirt I saw that had the words:

THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE
UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES.

The inertia of the RINO Wing mindset of the Republican Party has kept the Welfare Democrats in power after the National defeats of Dole, McCain and Romney.

One would think that those 3 painful losses would be called an “out” by the Republican Party.

What has happened is that the Republican faithful just chalk them up to 3 foul balls.

What is lacking is the desire to judge each action or inaction on the merit of whether or not it is good for the Country.

As a result, our political system has been in the Roman end times where the decadent rulers just try to appease the masses by giving them “stuff.”

Our “stuff” is the Welfare Borrow and Spend Shadow Federal Government that consumes 40 % of the Total Federal Government spending.

We beat our chests and complain about our high taxes that go to pay for this Welfare Shadow Government.

The truth is that not one penny of our taxes goes to pay for Welfare, as ALL of Welfare is financed by borrowing from our Grandchildren’s descendants.

Thus, we have two Federal Governments: one that is financed mainly by income from those 54 % who still pay Personal Federal Income Taxes, and the other financed by debt which must be repaid with interest by our Grandchildren’s descendants.

None of the above is recognized as being valid by those that we elect to govern us.

If the economic reality cannot be clearly communicated to our sorry Federal Politicians, then the Financial Markets will do so at the worst possible time.

________

My second point is that of leadership. This is a generational topic, and thus difficult to analyze.

History will show that the Post-WW2 generations in America produced poorly motivated patriotic political leaders, with few exceptions.

History will also show that we, as a Nation, lack the will to punish our politicians who violate the ethics, morality, financial obligations or the written Laws of our Nation.

For example, who was the last US President who went to jail for violating his oath of Office for violating the US Constitution? BTW, he/she would be the next one and also be the first.

__________

The third point is the desire to fail. RINOs are masters at it, and for that reason have kept (for FIVE YEARS) as their Speaker of the US House none other than John “Cave-In” Boehner.

With Sobber John at the helm, there will be no Special Investigation of the Benghazi Massacre, IRS harassment of Welfare Democrat opponents, legal pursuit of Contempt of the House AG Holder, or year to year reduction in Total Federal Spending, etc.

B. Hussein Obama’s legacy will remain intact and in effect as long as “Cave-In” Boehner is kept as Speaker by the sorry House RINOs.

RINOs have their defenses up to label as “Wacko,” “dangerous,” or “radical” any challenge to their dedicated goal of failing to act in the best interests of the Country, and to always Cave-In to the Welfare Democrats.

Blackmail to them is a badge of honor, as they laugh their way to a gold-plated retirement paid for by the debt that they have created.

_________________________________________________________________________

BTW, think about the above comments the next time that someone tries to con you into believing that “we Americans still have a Federal Government that we can be proud of.”

He is only singing to the choir because the media limits him the same way it works against conservatives.

IMO, just the way liberals have been boycotting and putting pressure on conservatives; maybe all the conservatives should do the same things to reporters and the companies that sponsor them.

Hit them in the wallet for the next ten years and see if that changes up things.

In fact, few people have a liberal view, but the press is so overwhelming that you would think they were a vast majority.

IMO, there needs to be a peaceful coordinated effort to boycott sponsors of liberal media. Work it!

Stinkprogress and other lefty websites are trying to spin his comments on Detroit into “Rush says Detroit failed because blacks drove out the whites” . . . this is beyond tiresome.
