Rush Interviewed by Sean Hannity, Part Two

BEGIN PART TWO TRANSCRIPTHANNITY: You came on the air one day, and you said, "I resign as the head of the Republican Party." RUSH: Titular head.HANNITY: Sorry. (chuckling)RUSH: Titular head of the Republican Party.HANNITY: Quote it accurately, yes.RUSH: Because I was not the head of the Republican Party. I was named the head of the Republican Party by the White House, by the Obama White House. What they were trying to do was get Republicans -- elected Republicans -- to throw me overboard,...

Rush Interviewed by Sean Hannity, Part One

HANNITY INTRO: Rush Limbaugh has been the focus of the political world in recent months. He has been viciously attacked by the left and even criticized by so-called members of the Republican Party, like Colin Powell. I sat down with Rush earlier today to get his thoughts on all the criticism that he has faced and his reaction to Obama's "Muslim nation" comment and also his thoughts on the country's turn toward socialism. Here is Part One of my exclusive interview with nationally syndicated radio...

A Great Story on Clarence Thomas

RUSH: I've got to play two sound bites. This is one of the greatest stories. Two kids from Maryland high school being recruited by Nebraska University. They fly out there; they go through the recruitment; they see the place. On their return flight home, in coach, is a black man, huge Nebraska fan, and they talk to him throughout the flight. They have no idea they're talking to Justice Clarence Thomas. When they found out who it was, they went to their school, and they asked the school to have...

Did This Day Really Happen?

RUSH: I'll tell you, you know, the news today... This whole news day... I won't be surprised if I wake up in a moment and this whole thing is a dream, that it's a nightmare, that I did not do the interview with Sean Hannity, that Barack Obama did not say America is a Muslim nation, that Lara Logan did not say that the Muslim world's hopes reside on the shoulders of one man, that Newsweek did not say that Osama Bin Laden is a myth, that he's not important anymore. And when you take those two things...

CNN Polls Rush Favorability Again

RUSH: CNN has done another one, another poll of me. It was revealed and announced yesterday by Wolf Blitzer on his show, The Situation Room.BLITZER: Our CNN/Opinion Research corporation poll asked favorable/unfavorable numbers for most of the top Republicans who we're hearing a lot from lately. And look at these numbers. Colin Powell, he's at 70% favorability. Then John McCain, 58. Then it goes down. Sarah Palin 46, Romney 42, Dick Cheney 37, Newt Gingrich 36, Rush Limbaugh is only at 30%...

NBC Obama Reality Show Depicts White House Flummoxed by Rush

RUSH: Now, as you know, state-run NBC was granted access to the Barack Obama reality show, The West Wing. We have a series of sound bites here, and the first one is a montage to give you a flavor of Brian Williams following Obama and his staff around in the White House last Friday. Now, this show, as you would expect from state-controlled media, is a fawning tribute to Obama. But the topic that dominated the day last Friday at the White House was Sonia Sotomayor -- and, by extension, me. So here's...

Never Has Something Worked So Well, So Fast (and So Hilariously)

RUSH: State-run MSNBC at the top of the hour focused a lot on Newt Gingrich retracting the word "racist" to describe Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as too extreme. The Drive-Bys all happy that Mr. Newt is retracting. I'm not retracting. The truth doesn't need to be retracted and we don't retract the truth here, but they're all excited about it, "It's too extreme, it's too extreme, "racist," it's too extreme." It wasn't to extreme when it was applied to Robert Bork. It wasn't too extreme...

National Health Care Will Obliterate the Concept of Individual Liberty

RUSH: The Wall Street Journal, interesting story today: "Why the Health Care Rush?" It is an editorial. It turns out, ladies and gentlemen, that the Democrats had a Democrat-only meeting yesterday with Obama on nationalized health care. The Democrats want to ram this down everybody's throat just like they did TARP and just like they did the stimulus bill. They don't want any public hearings, and no Republicans were in that meeting. "Democrats are trying to rush the largest entitlement expansion...

State-Run Media: Bin Laden Out, Obama Now Leads Muslim World

RUSH: Lara Logan, "CBS Evening News," live last night from Cairo.LOGAN: (purring) Sunset in Cairo. The call to prayer rings out. Thousands fill the mosques for Friday prayers.MUSLIMS: (chanting)LOGAN: Muslims around the world are paying close attention to the overtures made by Barack Obama. From his first moments as president, America's new leader has raised the hopes of Muslims all over the world, who now expect so much of one man.RUSH: State-controlled media, CBS: "Muslims around the world...

El Rushbo to State-Run Media: You'll Find No Retractions Here

RUSH: All right, I have read Newt Gingrich's op-ed where he supposedly "retracts" his comments about Sotomayor, and here's how it begins: "Shortly after President Obama nominated her to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, I read Judge Sonia Sotomayor's now famous words: 'I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life.' My initial reaction was strong and direct --...

What if Sotomayor is Pro-Life?

RUSH: What, Mr. Snerdley? Have my words been too strong on Sotomayor? Are you asking because Newt has retracted his? No, my words have not been too strong. I just heard right before the program started, I didn't have a chance to do a whole lot of show prep late because of the Hannity interview, so after the interview I checked my e-mail and three members of the state-run media had sent me e-mails wanting my reaction to Newt's retraction of his calling Sotomayor a racist, and I didn't know that...

Obama: US is "One of the Largest Muslim Countries in the World"

RUSH: Did King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, did he grow six inches in the past year, six months? Well, the last time Obama met King Abdullah he bowed down and the White House says, no, he wasn't bowing down, the king is so much shorter than President Obama. We were told Obama was much taller, was not bowing, just adjusting and accommodating their height differences. This meeting Obama did not bow, and maybe that's it, maybe the king was wearing the lifts that have been popularized by Kim Jong-il...

Story #1:Hope & Change: US Loses Another 532,000 JobsRUSH: We lost another 532,000 jobs in May, 16,000 jobs every day since the stimulus bill. That's a lot of change and a lot of hope. "U.S. private employers chopped more than half a million jobs in May, signaling job conditions remain tough and dashing some hopes the economy was not deteriorating as rapidly as thought." Well, whose hopes? State-run media. State-run media is the source for the news the economy was getting better. So here we...
