May 12, 1995, Friday 11:15 AMSHOW: RUSH LIMBAUGH (9:00 PM ET) LIMBAUGH: Thank you very much and welcome back. RUSH LIMBAUGH, the television show. It's great to see you. I want to go back to this show on April 24th of this year and--and remember at this time we're--we're about five days after the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. And we're into this period of time where talk radio--and, of course, when you say talk radio what everybody thinks of is Rush Limbaugh--talk radio is responsible...

I Don't Want the Economy to Fail

RUSH: I know it's sort of like spitting into the wind here, but I want to make another point on this failure business. Remember back in 2002 when we had a plummeting Dow Jones Industrial Average and Dick Gephardt was happy? Dick Gephardt, then the Democrat leader in the House, gleefully said, "Every hundred-point drop in the stock market, we pick up another seat." You'd think Dick Gephardt was hoping for economic failure? Yes, Dick Gephardt was hoping for economic failure, and he was publicly...

More Clips from the CPAC Speech

RUSH: I will admit, I've been waiting until the third hour of the program on both days here to play excerpts from the speech on Saturday and I think, contrary to what you might think, I don't want to be distracted from the news of the day by focusing on something I said Saturday. So the first two hours of the program I'm hammering this economy, I'm hammering Obama... (interruption) What? What did you say? (interruption) Well, I know it's still the news, but there's been news made since. (interruption)...

A Message for Robert Gibbs and His White House Press Lackeys

RUSH: Let's go to the tape, let's give you an example of how the White House is encouraging reporters to stay focused on me. And don't tell us that those Rahm Emanuel, Stephanopoulos, Carville, Begala secret phone calls every morning don't have meaning. The question is from Ed Henry, CNN, of Robert Gibbs, the White House spokesman: "The president has spoken a lot about bringing the country together." Ed, you're a butt boy. You know, my fertile brain, I'm exploding with reaction just to one phrase...

Caller: You're Being Played, Rush

RUSH: Arnie, in a truck, which means he's a target of the Obama administration, in Vermont. Nice to have you, sir. Hello.CALLER: The great socialist state of Vermont.RUSH: Right.CALLER: Rush, I can't believe the all-knowing, all-powerful, all-seeing Maha Rushie does not see that he is being played like a fiddle from the far left. They don't want the conversation being on the good conservative policies coming out of the conservatives Washington. What they're doing is they're starting a fire...

Has Taking on Rush Ever Worked?

RUSH: This is the Today Show today. The cohost, Meredith Vieira, talking with Chuck Todd -- who, by the way, yesterday said that I am part of a dying medium: radio. Radio is a dying medium and, you know, the Internet and television, that's where the action is. Hey, Chuck? We ought to do a little poll. Who is Chuck Todd? He is in the media. He's in television. He's in the very active, big time, really popular television medium. We should do a little poll: "Who is Chuck Todd?" and then give some...

Obama to Stock Market: Drop Dead

RUSH: I said yesterday there was a CNN commentator out there who said over the weekend that he knows somebody that said Obama's speeches, they're like sex. They're better than sex. I can see how that's true. When Obama speaks, the American people get screwed. This morning in the Oval Office, Obama talking with Gordon Brown. Here is a portion of the conversation.OBAMA: What I'm looking at is not the day-to-day gyrations of the stock market but the long-term, uh, ability for the United States...

Repentant Caller: Keep It Up, Rush

RUSH: John in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Great to have you on the Rush --CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Listen, I want to get to my point. I know time is limited.RUSH: -- Limbaugh program. Yes, hi, sir.CALLER: Things have become quite different since the last time we talked. The last time we talked, by the way, you hammered away at me pretty darn hard. Then you hammered away when I hung up and then you hammered away at me in your newsletter. So you kind of made me famous in Pinehurst, but I...

Obama Isn't Helping the Economy Succeed, He's Tearing It Down

RUSH: This is the Charlie Rose Show last night. He has Jake Tapper from ABC as his guest, and they had this exchange about me.ROSE: Give me a sense of Rush Limbaugh and how the Democrats see him and why he is achieving this kind of prominence now, notwithstanding that he is a popular figure on radio, has always been a popular figure with House Republicans. But now it seems to be Limbaugh versus Obama.TAPPER: For the Obama administration, this is an issue of -- of tone. Rush Limbaugh, who is...

E-Mail Exchange with Greg Sargent

RUSH: So I'm minding my own business, bothering no one -- I guess it was about hour before the program or 45 minutes before the program -- and I get this e-mail from Greg Sargent, who is writing at the Washington Post. Now, until a couple months ago, just so you know who Greg Sargent is, he was a blogger at a far-left blog post that calls itself Talking Points Memo. This is the website that is now trying to distort Bobby Jindal's story about Hurricane Katrina in order to make it look like Bobby...

Obama Aims to "Remake" Nation and Stamp It with His Own Emblem

RUSH: This is a headline from the Chicago Tribune: "Barack Obama's Push: Make Rush Limbaugh Appear to be the Face of the GOP." Here's the subhead: "Obama gambles that taking on conservative radio host will cow Republicans, benefit president's agenda." What do we have here? We have the president of the United States, Barack Obama, gambling on me to benefit his agenda and to cow the Republican Party. Me. He's counting on me to end up selling his agenda. Fat chance. It isn't going to happen....
