GOP Governors' Foreclosure Ban

RUSH: I was doing Show Prep last night and I came across so many stories that made me think, "They're spoofs. They gotta be spoofs. I'm not reading this. This cannot be a real news story." With so many Internet sites out there now doing spoofs, I said, "I wonder if I'm getting scammed here," and this one turned out to be real. It's from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The Florida governor "Charlie Crist said Monday he is exploring a holiday-season moratorium on home foreclosures in Florida,...

ChiCom Unemployment Nightmare

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, in August of 2007, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the White House to have dinner with President and Mrs. Bush up in the residence. And for two hours prior to dinner, I was taken into the Treaty Room -- in the residence, just down the hall from the Lincoln Bedroom -- with President Bush and Ed Gillespie, who had replaced Karl Rove. The President took me around the world and told me what was going on and where, and what was being done about it, what the challenges...

The Bailout's Cost in Perspective

RUSH: All right, Barry Ritholtz, a financial blogger, has run the numbers on the bailout, and he cites a guy named Jim Bianco of Bianco Research who crunched inflation-adjusted numbers and compared some previous federal government expenditures to the current total of the bailout. Now, depending on where you look, the total bailout money to date is either $6 trillion or $7.4 trillion. These guys, they just ran it up to $4.6 trillion, and it's more than that now. It's at least two trillion more...

Obama's Cabinet: Clinton Retreads

RUSH: Overland Park, Kansas. This is Joe. Joe, thanks for waiting. You're next on the program.CALLER: Rush, dittos, thanks for having me on your program. Hey, I'm calling about the revival of the Clinton nation, the appointment of the Clintonistas to the Obama cabinet positions, and I think there's an angle on this that has never been explored -- at least, not that I have heard yet. Rush, I think it's time to give credit where credit is due regarding the revival of the fortunes of the Clinton...

Somali Pirates Thrive, Amuse

RUSH: AP, you have to love the headline: "Pirate Economy Thriving." (laughing) What, should we all join the Somali pirates? Somali pirates, by the way, hijacked another ship, folks, a Yemeni ship. They were mad that they were aced out in the Citibank bailout. They wanted to join Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, being investor in Citibank and they didn't get a chance. They've done everything they can to cooperate. They started out with a $10 million ransom on the $100 million dollars of oil they...

Q: Why Do the Big 3 Need Money?

RUSH: Lauren in Erie, Pennsylvania. Hi. Welcome to the EIB Network.CALLER: Thank you for having me. I'm a big fan. I have a question for you. Everyone's saying should we bail out the auto industry or not. There's no one else coming up with a solution. I've got a great one. I want to hear your opinion.RUSH: All right.CALLER: Okay. What if we have the oil industry bail them out, because I think we've all paid enough in taxes, and that's the hand that feeds them.RUSH: Wait a second, now....

Please Use a Phony First Name if You're Going to Criticize Obama

RUSH: All right, we're going to the phones. People have been waiting patiently. Livermore, California. Ray, we're going to start with you. It's nice to have you on the program, sir.CALLER: Rush, thank you for your fine program. I'm here every day, and you give us a reason to live in this current environment. Rush, I want to talk about the disconnect between Wall Street and Main Street. They keep telling us that they have to do all these things for Wall Street because of Main Street. It couldn't...

Ben Bernanke is Toast at the Fed

RUSH: Have you seen they're rioting in Reykjavik? They are rioting in Iceland over the financial crisis. They have really been whacked by it over there. They want the people responsible for it (i.e., their government leaders) whacked. They want them thrown out of office. Iceland has really been hit hard by this. I don't know what they did, but the tentacles of the subprime crisis reach far. I mean, the question really needs to be asked, ladies and gentlemen: Is Ben Bernanke toast, the chairman...

California to Investigate Mormons Over Opposition to Gay Marriage

RUSH: Officials from the government of California, ladies and gentlemen, have announced plans to investigate the Mormon Church over their role in the passage of Proposition 8. Proposition 8 in California, as you know, won big. It defined marriage as a union between mankind and womankind. "The California Fair Political Practices Commission..." The California Fair Political Practices Commission? Why do you need one of those when you have the First Amendment? Well, I know who is going to do the...

Here's the Conservative Solution

RUSH: Gloria Borger today on CNN's website, "Obama Takes Ownership of the Economy," is the headline, which is fascinating 'cause he hasn't said anything yet. He hasn't offered anything specific. Some of the Drive-Bys are worried about this. We'll get to that later. Here's how Gloria Borger begins her piece: "At long last, a team. And it's formidable. With Tim Geithner eyed for the head of the Treasury..." By the way, the New York Times kind of dumps on this guy, too. They said he was everywhere...

You Saved Gas? Here's a Tax Hike!

RUSH: Here's another See, I Told You So. This is from the New York Times environmental blog that they call Green Ink. "For politicians, two of the most dreaded words in the English language are 'gas tax,' and it was only a few months ago that a few politicians (including some presidential candidates), were proposing gas-tax holidays for the summer driving season. As it stands, the current federal gas tax is at 18.4 cents a gallon -- and it has not budged for essentially 15 years. Every state...

Rubin, Obama Push for Bailout Like the Ones That Failed After Katrina

Live from the office of America's Anchorman, I am Rush Limbaugh, and this is the Excellence in Broadcasting Network, and today I give you my plans for the future of the country. Except there's a big difference between myself and the President-select, and that is the ideas will be mine. I have no team to farm it out to. Greetings, folks, great to have you...

Stack of Stuff Quick Hits Page

Story #1: Back at EIB Southern Command: Non-Union (For Now) RUSH: It is so great to be back here in the EIB Southern Command where there's no union and there's no Moe Thacker, using thugs of the United Screeners of America telling me I can't turn on my own microphone. It's so wonderful to be in total control of the operation -- turn it on, turn it off -- without being in fear of being written up or cited and called before the grievance board. But wait 'til they give the card check provision to...
