Grandma and Grandpa Gum It Up Again in Another Painful Democrat Debate

RUSH: After watching this thing last night, I do not understand why in the world the Democrat Party wants to let more immigrants into this country.  This country sucks so bad, this country is so horrible, this country is so decrepit, why in the world would they want anybody to come here and live here?  It's a mind-boggling thing to listen to these people talk about this country, and then to try to outdo each other. 

Bernie Asked If He's Thwarting History

RUSH: I'm convinced that these people listen to this program, 'cause it was earlier this week that I accused Hillary Clinton of racism and bigotry because not only did she try to stop the first black guy from becoming president -- that would be Barack Hussein O -- and now she's attempting to stop the first Jewish guy from becoming president. And they are asked this question last night. Bernie Sanders was asked the question.  

Why the NFL Kept the Raiders Out of LA

RUSH: What's been revealed here is that deep in the bowels of NFL hearings, meetings, somebody said, "We don't want the Raiders back anywhere in LA, Carson, Inglewood, Southern California, we don't want 'em anywhere because gangs here are gonna co-opt 'em and the Raiders are gonna end up wearing gang apparel and the gangs are gonna wear Raiders apparel and we don't want this kind of an image in the NFL."  But, I mean, the point is, it's already happened... When all these teams started adopting alternative jersey colors as black or putting black somewhere in the uniform predominantly when they had never, ever, had black as part of the color scheme...

Cruz's Brilliant Office Space Ad

RUSH: If you've seen Office Space, if you've seen that scene where they beat up the printer, and if you understand Hillary's got a problem with her e-mail server, this ad will be uproariously funny and brilliantly creative to you. 

We Must Take the Democrats Seriously

RUSH: I check e-mail during the breaks and there's some people thinking, "You know, you're not taking this seriously enough, Rush.  These people are really posing a threat." I think I, of all people, know that.  But it's a long campaign.  People's emotional reservoirs are only so deep, and they're gonna empty out long before we get to November.  People's emotional reservoirs are gonna empty and refill and empty and refill numerous times.  I don't think there's anybody more attuned to the clear and present danger that we face with either of these two, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, because we face it with Barack Obama.

Tiger Woods and the Game of Golf

RUSH: It's a very, very hard game.  This is my point about it, for those of you that don't play, never played it, the aspect of it that you'll never get is the mental.  It's just you.  There is nobody else to rely on.  There's nobody to pick you up.  There's nobody to give you a day off.  It's just you, and it's just your head and whatever is going on in your head, and it doesn't take much to shatter confidence. 

Mrs. Clinton's Epstein Strategy

RUSH: I was thinking that idea for Hillary Clinton to ingratiate herself to young women would be to take a personal interest in the Epstein case, the underage abuse victims... The problem is, her husband's involved here.  But then they could fall back on, "It's just sex. It's nobody's business." 

The Democrat Party Is the Most Destructive Force in America

RUSH: I believe that liberalism, Democrat Party, whatever you want to call it, is the most destructive force in America, outside of weather calamities that are acts of God.  It is an organized force.  It has an active philosophy with a multiplicity of objectives, and together they are oriented and aimed at destroying and tearing down this country. 

Libs Come Up with Reason Algore's Prediction Didn't Come True

RUSH: Ten years ago Algore said that if we didn't do whatever he said we had to do, that the end of the earth would have happened by now.  January 27, 2006, he said in ten years, it was gonna be over.  The earth was gonna be largely uninhabitable.  Sea levels would have risen to the point that New York City would be underwater.  It would have been just an abject, utter disaster -- and, of course, nothing of the kind has happened because they're all lying.  

Why I Don't Endorse in Primaries

RUSH: I'm not running.  I look at newspaper endorsements and I read about all these people that do, and I think they're full of it to think they're bigger than the process.  The process is where we determine who wins.  It's up to the candidates to win, not me or anybody else.  Now, I'm flattered that people think that I could be the margin of victory for somebody, but I don't look at myself that way.  And, if I ever did, you would not be able to put up with me. I would make Max Headroom look like a dwarf.  

The Democrat Party Will Schlong Crazy Bernie and His Young Idealist Voters

RUSH: What I was gonna say about Bernie Sanders and his young idealistic voters, is wait 'til they find out that Hillary is getting all the delegates.  Bernie Sanders wins New Hampshire by 22 points.  I mean, it's a wipeout.  And Hillary ended up with nine more delegates than Bernie Sanders.  Now, you want to talk rigged game?  Bernie out there saying, "Everything's rigged.  The economy's rigged! Wall Street's rigged!"  Hey, Bernie? So is your party's nominating process. 

Political Ideology Is a Circle

RUSH: I long ago made the point to a caller... The first time was in either the late eighties or the early nineties. It was a caller calling to ask me in the early days of the program what I thought of the often repeated thought that Nazism and Hitler were conservatives, and this is why Jewish people don't vote Republican.  I said, "Nothing could be further from the truth! In the first place, I said, you cannot diagram the ideological existence in a straight line.  You have to do it as a circle."  I remember the caller reacting like a giant lightbulb had been turned on. 

This Trump Tweet Could Make News

RUSH: Some people are gonna see this as Trump admitting he's not a conservative. Some people are gonna say: "See?  Trump is now so in the driver's seat he feels free to come forward and admit that he's not a conservative and it's actually conservatives that screwed everything up." Others are not going to see it that way.  Others are gonna see that Trump is right on the money here.  

Liberal Democrats Sell Socialism, Expand Government, Shrink the American Pie -- and Blame Republicans for All of It!

RUSH: The American economy has always grown.  That's how wealth has been created, with people trying to get their piece of it.  It's never been a zero-sum game.  Somebody gets a piece, somebody loses a piece.  It's always been the pie grows, and it grows as Americans work hard and produce more, create more.  Well, that's not happening.  The government's taking ever bigger chunks of that pie.  Fewer people are working in that pie.  It isn't growing, and therefore whoever gets pieces of it, it's becoming a zero-sum game, all brought to you by the American left and the Democrat Party.  If they're in charge of who has money, can you blame people for turning to them?

President Obama Faults a Guy on Radio for the Tone in Washington

RUSH: I mentioned earlier Obama's blaming me for the lack of a good tone in politics, blaming me for the lack of improvement in the good tone of politics.  Well, he's worked hard, he's the president, he's the most powerful man in the world.  I am holding him back.  And I held back Bill Clinton, folks.  The same thing.  If it wouldn't have been for me, why, we'd be in so much better shape in this country.  I'm just a guy on the radio. 

It's Official: The Establishment Is Panicked (But Is It Really a Revolution?)

RUSH: Well, it's now official.  Panic has set in.  Panic has set in maybe in both establishments, but certainly in the Republican establishment, panic is now official.  And it's all because, up until last night, everything was theoretical.  But now Trump won, and he outperformed the polling.  But before you get too crazy, I want to remind you of something.  People are talking about a revolution going on out there, and I can understand why people might be saying so when you look at Bernie Sanders over Hillary, and Trump coming out of nowhere and dominating the Republican side. I don't know about a revolution...

Limbaugh Theorem on Display in Bernie and Hillary Speeches

RUSH: Here are these two people who have made the last seven years possible.  They are the architects, along with Barack Hussein Obama, they have voted for every dime of it, they have supported everything. To listen to these people criticize the health care system with 29 million people still uninsured and to complain about the costs, the rising premiums and the deductibles, and to hear them talk about unemployment, and to hear them talk about low wage, who do they think is responsible for this? 

Bernie Got Schlonged on Delegates

RUSH: Hillary Clinton tried to stop the first African-American from being elected president. Now she's trying to stop the first Jewish-American from being elected president.  What a bigot! Doesn't Mrs. Clinton realize she should get out of the way and let these minorities finally have their shot at things? She tried to stop the first black president; he won.  Now she's trying to stop the first Jewish president, and he just mopped the floor with her.  Do you want to know how screwed up the Democrat primary is?

Trumpster: Cruz Isn't Tough Enough

RUSH: If Cruz is too nice to deal with the powerful forces that are currently shaping the world, and if Reagan might not even be able to, what is Trump gonna do?  What are you convinced Trump is going to do to beat back these powerful forces?

If Conservatism Is Your Only Priority, There Is No Choice Other Than Ted Cruz

RUSH: When I saw what Jeb and Kasich were doing in New Hampshire at the last minute in order to get votes, they were going left as fast as Deion Sanders can backpedal.  They were moving left faster than anybody I've ever seen go left.  And I opened the program yesterday saying, "You will never, ever, have to worry about that with Ted Cruz."  And then I expanded on it.  And let me say one thing: If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz.

Reality Bites Washington

RUSH: It is this endless cycle here of theorizing and pretend and fantasyland with an occasional hard, cold shower of reality that brings everybody back for a while.  But then the whole process starts repeating where everybody tells you what they know is gonna happen in South Carolina and why it's gonna happen in South Carolina.  And yet, in the two states so far, there have been shocks, despite what everybody thought they knew.  Bernie winning as big as he did was a shock.  And as far as the establishment's concerned after Iowa, they really thought maybe it's all overstated for Trump. 

Pandering Bush, Kasich and Christie Run as Democrats in New Hampshire Primary

RUSH: All three of these guys try to make themselves look like the biggest squish moderates you have ever seen.  They're certainly trying to make themselves not look like they are Republicans.  And that's what annoys me.  They're in a Republican primary, and rather than stand up and try to sell and try to promote the whole concept of the necessary steps we need to take to reverse the trends in this country, to save this country, to stop the direction we're going, instead what do they do?  They pander... And this is why, you know, say what you want about Ted Cruz, but Mr. Ted Cruz would never engage in this kind of watering down his beliefs.

Pray for the Good Health of Bill Clinton

RUSH: There's no gleam, there is no electricity, there's no charisma, there's hardly any life. The guy's hoarse. He can barely talk.  The only time he came alive was when Chelsea started talking about it, and that wasn't very much.  He just doesn't look to be very with it, folks. It's very... This is bad, folks.  We want great health for Bill Clinton.  We want Bill Clinton in just fabulously great health for the rest of the year and beyond.  We do not want Bill Clinton to get sick. We pray for the great health of Bill Clinton.

Trump's Performer's Instinct

RUSH: I don't know anybody else who would try to turn this around the way Trump did.  And it's just... I don't know what else you call it, performer's instinct or what.  He clearly has it, whether you think that's a disqualifier or a serious presidential candidate or not.

Rubio Said What Needs to Be Said -- and Repeated -- About Obama's Intentions

RUSH: I got an e-mail this morning, "Could you tell me why you are endorsing Rubio?"  I said, "I'm not endorsing Rubio.  I haven't endorsed anybody.  I haven't endorsed Trump, I haven't endorsed Cruz, I haven't endorsed anybody."  "Well, okay, why are you...?" Is it really that complicated, folks? What I happen to be supporting is: When people say something that I think needs to be said, I'm going to amplify it.  To me, all of this is about ideas, and it certainly matters who wins.  And it certainly matters the ideas that they have.  Now, if Rubio is out saying what nobody else in the party other than Ted Cruz, will say, then I'm not gonna condemn him for saying it. I don't care how many times he says it.  I don't care if he looked robotic when he said it. 

Liberals Worry About Authoritarian Trump But Had No Problem with Dictator Obama

RUSH: I don't know how many Trump supporters this is. It's probably not a lot, but there's some people who think that the country is in such dire straits that it may take drastic action, that we don't have time to go through the normal channels to stop some of this stuff, to reverse it. If Obama does an executive order letting 'em in, we're gonna do an executive order kicking 'em out. The hell with going through Congress. Can't trust those creeps anyway. And they think Trump's the guy to do it. You know who mostly articulates those fears to me? A bunch of leftist media types who sit there and applaud it when Obama does.

Establishment Spin to Watch for Tonight

RUSH: I want to prepare you, because if Jeb Bush finishes in second place tonight and if this Emerson poll is right, then you are not going to recognize the news tomorrow.  You are not going to recognize the Republican primary.  You are going to think you have been asleep and tomorrow you have just awakened, and nothing that's happened up to tomorrow will mean anything. 

El Rushbo's Super Bowl Review

RUSH: There are a number of people in the country worried about where we're heading culturally and socially, and I think there are subconscious reasons people are happy for various and certain outcomes.  They may not even realize it until somebody like me comes along and reminds them, and they're probably saying, "Yeah, yeah. Right on, dude. That's exactly right. That's exactly how I'm feeling.  I just didn't know it 'til you came along, just like it was when you came along in 1988."  

The Real Question: Why Won't Anyone But Rubio and Cruz Say Obama Is Destroying the Country on Purpose?

RUSH: There's not a single Republican in this field who would, by virtue of inexperience, make the mistakes Obama is making, because Obama is not making mistakes.  Obama has an agenda. I think the real important question here to ask and answer is why won't anybody but Rubio and Cruz say it? I think when you start making fun of Rubio for repeating that Obama's doing it on purpose, you don't understand how important that is to the Republican base, which is what this primary is all about.  It's fundamental.  And by the same token, defining conservatism, being able to, is fundamental.  It's what this is all about.  And if you can't do it, if your definition of conservatism is ignorant or wrong, I guarantee you you're gonna pay for it when it comes time to vote. 

Why Mrs. Clinton Can't Release Her Goldman Sachs Speech Transcripts

RUSH: How they ended up having $150 million, for doing speeches, are you kidding me?  Nobody gets paid that much to do speeches, because nobody has that much to say to make it that worth it.  There's something else going on here.  That's why Mrs. Clinton won't reveal the transcripts of these speeches.  Something in them would give away the game.
