    (Snip) At long last, it appears that Rush Limbaugh has run out of steam. I have to acknowledge that I have sensed Rush getting by on fumes for some time now (yes, I tune into his show from time to time to enjoy his broadcasting skills if not his message). However, it was only recently that the world of Limbaugh crossed that thin red line from partially serious to total self-parody and audience deception—a line crossed from which there is often no return. It happened on the occasion of Stephen Colbert’s appointment to fill David Letterman’s soon to be vacated...

    RUSH:  I understand, ladies and gentlemen, that my occasional usage of the word "concomitant" and "concomitantly" is irritating Freepers at FreeRepublic.com.  "Yes, and if I hear that word and his pronunciation one more time, I will scream!"  I guess some prefer "con-com-i-TANT-ly."  At any rate, I was watching a show, a BBC show -- a fascinating show, by the way.  I hope it's made available in America. It's from the BBC, about Kim Philby.  It's a two-parter. I think it's an hour and 45 minutes each, whatever. It's an hour, hour and a half, maybe it's two hours. So there...

On his daily radio show, Limbaugh pointed to "plenty of evidence" for the potential sweep, citing the retirement announcement last month of California liberal icon Rep.

    One of the groups behind the Obamacare “Brosurance” ad campaign featuring keg-swilling doofuses is now trying to make the Affordable Care Act’s birth control subsidy seem hot and sexy in a series of ads. ProgressNow Colorado, which is highlighting horny women on the prowl for men who are “easy to get” in the “got insurance” ad campaign, attacked radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh last March for calling one of the major advocates for free birth control, Sandra Fluke, a “slut.” Limbaugh apologized for his comments. “Let’s Get Physical/ OMG, he’s hot! Let’s hope he’s as easy to get as...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I sometimes wonder, and I'm sure you do, too, if the Republican Party really knows what they're up against. Let me tell you a little story here that happens to be true. I don't think the Republicans have the slightest idea. I think they are so far behind the times, in terms of where the culture is. They certainly do not know, I'm convinced, enough about their political opponents to effectively deal with 'em. Try this. This is a short little story, not a big deal. It's from CBS Eyeball News in Annapolis, Maryland. Just recently last...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH:  Look at that, even Fox is getting this wrong.  Fox is reporting that Obama said that he's sorry people are losing their plans.  He did not say he's sorry people are losing their plans.  He did not say that.  He said he's sorry you feel the way you feel over having lost your plan.  He's sorry that you believed him.  Or he's sorry that you misunderstood him.  It's the EIB Network, and it's Friday, my friends.  So let's go to. JOHNNY DONOVAN:  And now, from sunny South Florida, it's Open Line Friday! RUSH:  Yes, sir.  On the...

    The Blaze ^ | 11/1/2013 | Jason Howerton
    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday argued that “Americans are losing [health care] coverage by political design” through Obamacare. He said the White House knew millions of Americans would lose their coverage, adding that “Richard Nixon resigned over a lie nowhere near this big.” “And you know the hell of it is that Obama doesn’t think he lied. I don’t think Obama, in his mind, is capable of lying. Whatever is necessary to say or do to advance the agenda is what is morally correct. Doesn’t matter. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t think he lied,” Limbaugh said. He went...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I mentioned earlier, folks, that there's a website, CampusReform.com. They're out there surveying students, and they're telling them the truth about things. This is the demographic that voted for Obama. They're doing great work out there. What they did, they went to a campus, in this case the University of Northern Colorado, and they started asking questions of the students while showing them video of Obama lying about being able to keep your plan if you like it, being able to keep your doctor if you like him, and having your premium reduced $2,500. They're playing these...

    (excerpt) All Obama cares about is that every day the general direction of the country is toward where he wants to go. The day-to-day minutia and the problems and the apparent failures of what he's trying to do, irrelevant. Because the chaos and the dismantling is the success. And when you're gonna start dismantling something as big as the health care system, of course it's gonna be a mess. These guys don't know what they're doing. They don't really have an alternative and they don't care right now. All they care about is that it gets so bad that there...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/30/2013 | C. Edmund Wright
    Rush Limbaugh won't say it in so many words, but he (very correctly) called into question the discernment capabilities of Charles Krauthammer and George Will this week on his show. Rush insists he was "merely flabbergasted" at their slow to evolve perception of Barack Obama -- and was only using them as examples to make a bigger point. That notion doesn't really line up with his very words however. Very clearly, Rush is somewhat irked that Dr. K and George Will were so badly bamboozled by Obama -- while so many of us racist 'rubes' never were. To be fair,...

    Rush Limbaugh: “You’ve got to make sure that when it fails, the right people get blamed, and this is what Obama can’t even do. You have to competently, in an evil mastermind kind of way, design the failure so that it looks like it’s the fault of who? The insurance companies, the hospitals, the doctors, the pharmacies, and, of course, the Republicans. Everybody EXCEPT government.”

You know what this feels like, folks? I’ll tell you exactly what it feels like to me. You tell me if this isn’t close. It feels like we’ve lost a war to a communist country.
