    My natural reaction was to rush to post what an idiot he is. But even a blind dog finds a bone now and then. This country could find a billion dollars in graft in a week to cover the "sequester". Obama is selling fear on this one. Bring on the sequester. The do your job and veto every bill with pork in it.

    Here in the Twin Cities the first things the Democrat mayors do, when faced with opposition to raising taxes, are to cut high profile services. Instead of taking out pork projects (bike paths, dog parks, city beatification projects, ect) they go after the police, fire, and social workers.

    @Yank Both parties do that man. It's "selling fear" to the public so the public won't mess around with their pet projects to pay off their political investors.

    @jessejaymes True, and sad but politics have become who can best scare people away from voting for the other guy instead of extolling their own strengths.

    What Rush is pointing out, is the fact that Democrats ALWAYS resort to "POLITICAL TERRORISM" every time someone mentions bringing the budget under control! It never fails! They'll threaten to take away every government "entitlement" in existence if you even HINT of a budget cut!~ And you know what? There are so many Americans ignorantly dependent on government for their sustenance... IT WORKS!~ THAT is something to be ashamed of!

    Your assessment of the basis of the government's control over so many people is the government's control of the purse.

    LImbaugh is right, we are all being played and have been for many years. The DC crowd,every one of them, are all about the money and power for themselves. We have allowed them way too much power and how we rescind it,is anybodies guess.

    We "rescind" by not voting anymore "tea-party" types into office...That's how we do it!

    @marine1 I may be "one-sided" old friend...But at least I would be willing and able to negotiate with the opposite party...And get the people's work done!...But you have heard them (the tea party types in congress)---"we will not negotiate"...So there you have it my friend.

    Take the blinders off they're all hypocrites

    ABC News’ Jonathan Karl confronted Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) over his past support for the sequester, just as the one-time GOP vice presidential candidate sought to blame President Obama for the automatic across-the-board cuts scheduled to go into effect on March 1.
    During an appearance on This Week, Ryan argued that President Obama “proposed the sequester” and hasn’t “put any details out there” to offset it.“We are here because the president back in the last session of Congress refused to cut spending in any place and therefore we wound up with the sequester,” Ryan insisted. But Ryan hasn’t always opposed the automatic cuts.
    As Karl pointed out, when Congress was debating the Budget Control Act in August of 2011, Ryan supported the framework and urged his fellow Republicans to vote for the sequester:

    I think just 2 people...Limbaugh himself and that poor slob of a gopher who works for him..."Snerdly" I believe limbaugh calls him.

    I'm embarrassed over this sequester business. None of the DC players have clean hands on this, but now hearing some members of Congress say it's a good idea is unbelievably irresponsible.

    No it's not ... Sequester should be forced.. It will not do Any of the things claimed because it not a Cut of any kind.. and it's a measly 68 Billion bucks... Not in Cuts... But in reduction of Increases of the budget... We would still spend Billions more than we spent last year even with the 68b taken out of the increases... If it was a problem then when we spent an Extra 400 Billion on bailout, 1 Trillion on medical, and 100's of Billions of other New Spending we should have had an Apocalypse...

    It's a 68 Billion dollar reduction in New Spending for christs sake... It will not be noticed in the big picture of 2.5 Trillion in spending this year...

    @Quantummist .. In fact .. I would call for Zero increase over last years budget... that would be more like 500 billion... and we would still spend as much as we did last year ......

    @Quantummist Typical liberal scare and fear tactics. " Oh we will have to lay off cops"

    The question is: Why do they cut 'essential' services? And not pencil pushing bureaucrats- folks double dipping on pensions and the like?

    Politics and to scare people, that's why.

    No one would care if 1000 people were cut from the FEMA payroll (an office that has lost over 30 billion in 10 yrs with no accounting for it)

    I think it is a good idea to let the sequester happen. The sky won't fall and maybe a few more people will wake up.
  • #26

    Perhaps, but many, many, many millions of people will loose their jobs and I don't think they should become the "sacrificial lambs" of this country---just because of the extreme right-wing Republican's in the House of Representatives.

    @Sonny ...I just don't buy it Sonny, just fear mongering in my opinion. What will you think if sequester happens and those things we are being warned against just don't happen? I would be interested in your answer.

    @Sonny Limbaugh was talking about you. You freak out over 65 billion, but what is going to happen when we have to cut a trillion more?

    @Yank Limbaugh does not have a clue of what he is talking about..If you choose to believe him, then so be it...I do not...So what ever he has said and what ever number he has thrown out there- is....as far as I'm concerned....NOT worth listening to...He's YOUR leader, not mine!

    Rush has a great point.EVERYONE should be ASHAMED right now.I guess it was OK for obummers wife to say that back at the first of his presidency..I HAVE NEVER BEEN PROUD OF THIS COUNTRY TILL NOW, so why do you liberals have such a problem with the truth and not with moochelle 5 years ago???

    If I'm not mistaken we elected "president Obama" in 2008. This country does not elect "kings".

    Ladies and Gentlemen, For the first time in my life I'm ashamed to admit that I am in agreement with Mr. Limbaugh. While I don't care at all for his over-the-top style (or any of the over-the-top Info-tainers on either side), I have to agree with his statements.
  • #42

    I agree wth him 100%...who could be proud of the sorry condition we find ourselves in?...
  • #158

    I agree with the master of oratory, El Rushbo. He obviously was referring to the wannabe despot and the 'low information' voters bought off by 'geeks bearing gifts.'
    Where was the outcry when 'pagoda hips' proclaimed: "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country," when her significant other was elected. Oh, and how about her statement caught on an open mike during a ceremony; "All this for a damned flag?" 'Domini go Friskcum'.....

    I have no belief in Washington, none! Why would I believe them now? I am reasonably certain that the sequester will hurt in the short term, but I don't believe that police and firemen are going to be laid off in mass. Government workers, perhaps they need to feel what minimum wage workers have felt for a long time..fear.
  • #121

    Police and fireman work for cities and counties, how is this going to effect them? Mayb federal employees need to experience what the rest of us deal with on a daily basis. If a business can't make a profit they lay folks of and if goverment can manage a budget,maybe they need to do the same. welcome to our world.

    @marine1
    My thoughts exactly. I don't necessarily want the economy to suffer, but my question is; if we can authorize 60 billion for Sandy relief then we can probably manage 85 Billion in cuts, 1/2 of which won't ago into effect till 2014.

    I have been ashamed the last four years because Obamas presidency was a sham. I am not convinced he was born on American soil. I am more displeased with everyone on capitol hill disregarding the overwhelming legal American polls on illegals, gun control, and spending. All the polls point to the immediate deportation of ALL illegals, no more gun control, and quit spending what you do not have. Obama and others continue to ignore facts and have their own agenda in ruining this country. It is an embarrassment!!! The whole world is laughing.
  • #165

    1 thing Obama has succeeded in, which I'm sure makes him and Michelle glow with pride , is that they have made at least half the country ashamed of itself . Limbaugh's comments are not outrageous at all. especially in light of the fact that the media went wild supporting Michelle Obama when she claimed " for the first time I'm proud of my country"
  • #156

    I'm not ashamed of my country; rather, I think the better way to say it is that I'm ashamed of fellow Americans for letting the country become a basket case of overspending, lack of responsibility, and for acting like petulant children when it comes to politics. It has literally become a waste of time to argue facts when it comes to political issues because Americans are so childish when it comes to their political dogma that they are unwilling to admit when their Party's positions are not good for the country. The Republican and Democrat parties have become CULTS and Americans have become freeloaders, excuse-makers, and hacks. Let's be honest, who is really concerned about national debt, especially if it's really addressed the way it must be, it means cutting back on handouts? As has been stated many times, the so-called "rich" or top 2% income earners can be taxed at 100% and still it would not be a spit in the bucket compared to what is needed to address out of control spending and national debt. Do Americans really care? Not really. The more conservative Americans have a greater sense of awareness of national debt, but liberals seem to be only concerned with one thing--STICK IT TO THE RICH--even though doing so will do little to nothing to stop the train from going off the cliff. Party politics has become Americas second civil war with no end in sight.

    So the view of Rush angers ?(For the first time in my life Im ashamed of my country) on the opposite side of the spectrum you have Michel obama after the first election(For the first time in my life Im proud of America)Honest views from the right and the left in todays America I would say.

    Obama's wife said for the first time in her adult life she was proud of America! Can you imagine? She has not been proud of America all the past years until her Husband was elected? What kind of hate America Liberal activists have you democrats elected!!!!!!!!! I totally agree with Limbaugh. I am ashamed of every person who voted for this traitor to our nation. He is a pure activist who wants to transform the greatest nation this planet has ever had. He wants to make it yet one more dead lifeless Socialist European nation being controlled by a corrupt United nations.

    Every body is going to starve. Old folk a are not going to get their medication. School teachers are going.to loose their jobs oh ya first responders are also going.to loose their job. The community pays first responders. School system pays the.teachers. How can this bunch of ass clowns in D.C. talk about budget cuts when there has not been a budget in 3 years(which for you folks out there that don't know is against the law). So let's just fire the whole dam bunch and.get the monkeys out of the zoo and let them run things.
