RUSH: Yes, here we are, we're back. Folks, listen to this. This is from Ed Henry at Fox News. I have a little inside information on what Ed Henry has told some producers and people at Fox: "In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday's big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress," which makes this an even bigger farce.
RUSH: Piers Morgan talking to Frank Rich: "We can't start with anything else apart from this complete farce over Obama's speech about how to get America back to work, which has descended into anarchy it seems from where I'm watching. What is your view, Mr. Rich?"
RICH: It's amateur night. It's embarrassing. It looks amateurish. That speech really better be dynamite, because if after all this buildup and nonsense and farce, if he, you know, delivers a mouse, really for -- when you think of all the Americans who are suffering from unemployment, he's got a bigger problem than he started with.
RUSH: I have here a review of AP stories on unemployment, and it is hilarious. All three are from the AP by Christopher Rugaber. From this morning at 8:30, AP story headline: "Jobs Report Could Show Signs of Modest Growth." This is before the news was released, now. This story ran before the job number of zero was announced.

RUSH: "The Internal Revenue Service allowed undocumented workers to collect $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year, a new audit says, almost quadruple the sum five years ago." And the Washington Post report goes on to say that this money was from the earned income tax credit.
CALLER: There you go. Rush, I'm calling to try to hijack your airwaves to direct my message towards Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.
CALLER: I'm desperately attempting to try to get this guy to enter into the presidential race.
RUSH: He said he doesn't want to.
CALLER: You sound like a Fanboy to me.
RUSH: Well, what I meant by I'm not a Fanboy, I don't know code, and I'm not even proficient enough to use Terminal, which is a poor man's attempt to write code to change some things in the OS, operating system. I can do it if somebody comes up with a command, I can paste it in there if I want to but I was just trying to tell the real Fanboys when I was talking about Jobs that I don't pretend to be anything other than a high-end and fairly well informed consumer. But the great stuff about Apple products is, you don't have to know how they work, they just do.
RUSH: Forty-seven percent of Americans who work pay no income taxes. The top 10% are paying close to 50% of all income taxes, sir. You don't know what you're talking about.
