Trouble Brews on Sharpton Show

RUSH: There's trouble brewing on the Al Sharpton radio show, folks. Sound bite 28, I'm sorry.SHARPTON: When some of us said during the election that we need to get straight on things about the black community, a lot of people called, "Nope, don't do that! You all just jealous. You all player-hatin'." You told us to shut up now he is doing exactly what he promised and you all want us to go back now and make him do something he never promised! He has not lied. He never told nobody he was going to...

Barney Links Health Care to Iraq

RUSH: Barney Frank is upset, ladies and gentlemen. He has a different theory as to why there's a roadblock on health care and it's all about defense spending. He was on MSNBC last night, and he was asked about the F-22, that they said we don't need any more of those. Here's what he said.FRANK: We're being told that we can't afford to do health care, that we can't afford to do housing, et cetera. Well, the military budget is the main reason we can't afford it. If we had not fought that foolish...

Obama Opines on His Long Career

RUSH: Pete Wehner's Commentary piece says it just wasn't supposed to be this hard, and I doubt anything in Obama's life really has been hard. I think he's been very charmed. In this story from the AP that Obama may have to wait for health care, listen to this quote from Obama. "There have been so many times during my political career where people have said, 'Boy, this is make-or-break for Obama.'" Uh, ladies and gentlemen, his career is about five minutes old. "So many times in my career," and...

Dems Draw Laughs at Town Halls

RUSH: It is increasingly clear as we travel around the country. I watched town hall meetings with membership of Congress on health care. It is clear that voters know much more than government officials do about what's in the plan. We had Kathleen Sebelius down there in Reserve, Louisiana. A guy stands up and says, "It'll be a cold day in hell before he socializes my country." She had no clue. She lost it, because these are junior gods! Obama is god. These people think that they're universally...

What Health Insurance Insures

RUSH: Here's Ralph in San Antonio, Texas. Hello, Ralph, you're on the EIB Network. Big, big moment for you.CALLER: Rush, thank you for taking my call.RUSH: Yes, sir.CALLER: I'm 60-plus years old, and my income bracket would put me among the working poor, but I have health insurance because I choose to pay for it. The idea that people making 50 or $75,000 a year can't afford health insurance is an out-and-out lie.RUSH: Of course they can. You're exactly right out there, Ralph. What's happened...

DNC Runs Another Anti-Rush Ad

RUSH: I made mention of the fact yesterday that Republicans are finally courageously now using the "fail" word in association with Obama. I, of course, took the arrows on that early on. The Democrats have put together an ad, the DNC have put together an ad already. This is Wednesday. It was just Monday that Mitch McConnell went out there and used the word "fail" and then Lindsey Graham got in the act. And of course it was me back in January who said, "I hope he fails. I want his policies to...

A Rush Baby with "Bad" Insurance

RUSH: Rachel, 23 years old, Bartow, Florida. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.CALLER: Hi, Mr. Limbaugh. Mega dittos. I've been listening to you since Day One. I was a really little kid, but I've been listening to you ever since.RUSH: Thank you very much.CALLER: Well, I have health insurance. I work for a national home improvement chain, and my health insurance is absolutely horrible. It is awful. I cannot stand it. I cannot wait to get out of any part-time job and go into the...

Pelosi Trots Out Cancer Patients

RUSH: Nancy Pelosi, just before the program today, began another page right out of the 30-year-old Democrat playbook. The Democrats are dragging out people who had or have cancer to support their health care bill. How about presenting those who have diseases and illnesses that won't get the drugs and procedures they need because Obama and the Democrats are going to be denying lifesaving medicine and procedures? If the Democrats want to play this game, the Republicans ought to go get some people...

Obama Tweets Partisan Contempt

RUSH: Obama had a tweet. The White House had a tweet. The White House is running this like a campaign. They're sending out tweets and e-mails to all of their ACORN groups and so forth in all the states, trying to get them geared up for a campaign to get this passed. It's not about politics, though. It's about health care. "It's not about me," he said. It's all about him! He's worried his presidency is on the line here. This tweet from the White House last night, "Health care reform opponents...

You'll Have to Listen Fast, America

RUSH: Let me go ahead and take this call right now, because the e-mail is going nuts about this, too. So let's just deal with it now and get it out of the way. Tom in Tucson, welcome to the Rush Limbaugh program, nice to have you with us, sir. Hello.CALLER: Thank you, Rush. Very good to talk to you.RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.CALLER: Wow. (laughing) I wanted to talk about your means of speeding up your program. I cannot understand the -- the accelerated speed that you're doing with...

Would Obama Tell Ted Kennedy to Forego Surgery for a Painkiller?

RUSH: In fact, there's a gutsy story today, I found it last night on the American Thinker by a guy named James Lewis. Talk about not pulling any punches. "Does Ted Kennedy Deserve His Extended Cancer Care?" is the headline to the piece. "Senator Ted Kennedy, who is now 76 years old and was diagnosed with brain cancer in May of last year, is telling the world that nationalized medical care is 'the cause of his life.' He wants to see it pass as soon as possible, before he departs this vale of tears....

Obama on Edge as Magic Fades; DeMint Hits Nerve with "Waterloo"

RUSH: Now, look I understand it, folks, I totally understand it, but I gotta caution you again. I think people are way too giddy out there on this health care business. I think Obama's close to going over the edge. I hope nobody talks about his big ears within his earshot today, because this is a guy who grew up charmed, he grew up never laughed at, never teased, never kidded, and probably never criticized. He doesn't deal with this very well, and if somebody within his earshot today happens...

As public support for his healthcare takeover plummets, President Obama increasingly uses the language of morality to try to juice the sale. This week, Obama said the "well-off" should not view higher taxes as a sacrifice. "That's part of being a community," he claimed. He said people who are "better off" like he isoughtto "step up" and help bankroll...

Story #1:Government Motors Launches Cadillac CologneRUSH: Wait 'til you hear this. This is from the Toronto Star. General Motors, Cadillac's 100th anniversary is coming up. They're going to launch a line of men's cologne called Cadillac. It does not smell like the inside of a car. Nobody's been able to do that, actually. It is grapefruit, chamomile, a mix of geranium, tarragon, and cinnamon plus sweet spice and incense. So General Motors is going to get in the cologne business, rather than...
