Since the 1800s, people have made a living in New York City taking tourists for rides in horse-drawn carriages. Today, 200 horses are licensed to pull carriages in the city, mostly around Central Park. The new mayor, Bill de Blasio, has vowed to shut down the carriage industry. He calls it “inhumane.”

RUSH: Last night the president of France, Francois Hollande, and the Obamas and 350 of their closest friends dined on caviar and quail eggs, dry-aged rib-eye steak served with blue cheese, charred shallots, oyster mushrooms, and braised chard. They dined in the gigantic tent lavishly decorated to replicate a Monet painting of spring in sunny France. Outside the tent, 17 degrees. For dessert, they enjoyed cake made with chocolate from Hawaii, Florida tangerines, and cotton candy dusted with orange zest. Michelle Obama wore a designer dress estimated to have cost $12,000, designed by Carolina Herrera. Today, President Obama will give another speech about the horrors of income inequality.
RUSH: This is Stalinism. This is sheer, brazen lawlessness. There is nothing stopping Obama if he wants to raise somebody's tax rates or to eliminate somebody's tax rates... The very fabric, the very rule of law that is the glue that's held the country together -- our culture, society together -- is just being obliterated. It's not actually disintegrating. It's under assault. It's being attacked.
RUSH: Now, folks, I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I fully expect the 2014 midterms to be a wave election like 2010. I think the people of this country are gonna sweep Democrats out of office every chance they get... What if we get to 2016 and Obama says, "You know what? I like being president. I'm not leaving."
RUSH: "Right winger" equals "extremist," and you don't want to be thought of as one of those.
RUSH: Toobin says it's not even illegal. The secretary of the Treasury runs the IRS, and the IRS can do whatever they want when it comes to Obamacare because of what John Roberts said. Andy McCarthy says, "He can't do it."
RUSH: Why hasn't Obama fixed this? You guys have had five years of Obama policies.
RUSH: Somebody show me in the past three years where there's been a serious fight with Obama on the debt limit. The one time that you might consider serious, what happened? The government was shut down, and who got blamed and who got scared and who got punished?
RUSH: This country is gonna survive. The people of this country are gonna overcome this. I don't know how and I don't know when. I'm not gonna make any predictions, but we're not finished. This is not it. I just want everybody to know that.
RUSH: I'm sitting here, I'm watching Obama, and he's up there giving away other people's money, and I'm sitting here thinking, "How popular could I be if I could give away everybody else's money as much as I wanted every day? How popular could I be if I could take money away from people that other people hate, like he does, and give it away, and talk about it all day?
RUSH: Let me tell you something: Laurence Fishburne does not look like Samuel L. Jackson any day of the week. He does not. He does not sound like him, doesn't look like him.
