"Folks, just a few minutes of my voice can change a life."
"I've been doing this long enough now to start seeing the cycles repeat on everything. I don't care whether it's the debt limit or the fiscal cliff or the continuing resolution or the budget crisis of 2008 or TARP or the auto bailouts or the sequester-- it's the same playbook. It is the same threats, it's the same danger, it's the same crisis."
"I can't help but think that we are all being played for a bunch of fools, a bunch of suckers on this sequester business. I don't know -- are you like me? Do you really think 800,000 people are going to lose their jobs in the Pentagon because we cut $22 billion?"
"What isn't a government study these days? What happens here that isn't related to government anymore?"
"Story: 'President Obama makes a credible case that he's reached farther toward compromise than the House Republicans have.' He has? Well, I guess he has, since the media says so."
"Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it's being during this sequester business... it just makes me ashamed. Seriously, man."
"The left has not been silent while we have been informing and educating. What the left has been doing is waging war on the private sector and creating more dependency among people."
"We're robbing people of their own dignity and humanity and opportunity to realize their own dreams by turning their lives over to the government, and nobody ever talks about stopping this."
"For years now I've actually been defending the accusation that Republicans want to starve children; it comes up -- predictably, regularly. And for 20 years I have been trying to tell the people of this country via this radio show, 'No, the Republicans are not trying to starve children.'"
"Whereas you are not supposed to complain and get along just fine with a little tax increase, the government can't be expected to continue to operate if $22 billion is subtracted from their pile of $3.7 trillion."
"The left has total control over the public education system, all the way up to the university level. It's something they own, and it's going to have to change."
"The bulk of this audience is not low-information voters. You are not low-information people; you are at the head of the class. But there are low-information people out there to whom $44 billion sounds much larger than $3.7 trillion."
"It's a bugaboo I've always had: if somebody is offended, whatever offends them must stop. In a group of a thousand people, if one person's offended, the 999 other people have to stop doing what offends the one. It's so stupid."
"So I'm bashing federal employees by explaining what they did in 1995? Oh, okay. Let's move on, then. A photo was taken of Britney Spears coming out of a grocery store."
"Every president that I have seen has always been tied to national policies, be they military, economic, or social. Obama is the first president that a majority of people do not associate with actual events and occurrences. He's seen as not involved, but trying to stop them; not involved, but fighting them."
"Drudge took down our website. Drudge crashed RushLimbaugh.com. This has never happened before. Usually we do the crashing."
