RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, it’s an outrage, it is an absolute outrage. Our president has been shafted by the Nobel committee and by the pope. Greetings, my friends. Great to have you with us. Rush Limbaugh, the EIB Network. 800-282-2882 if you want to be on the program. The e-mail address today, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.
Well, they gave out the Nobel Prize for economics last week. President Obama did not get it. It is an insulting outrage. I mean if he’s going to get the Peace Prize for doing nothing, at least the same bunch of people who like what he’s doing to destroy America’s foreign policy and standing in the world could at least have awarded him the same thing for destroying our economy. If I were the White House I’d be outraged about this. In fact, he shoulda gotten the Nobel prize for economics before he got the Nobel Peace Prize, because there isn’t peace out there, but there is economic destruction, the kind of which Western European elites love to see along with the likes of the Hugo Chavezes of the world and the Fidel Castros.
And, folks, another insult, the pope, Vatican City news was made yesterday. Pope Benedict XVI canonized five new saints on Sunday, even one for work in Hawaii. I saw that, I said, ‘Oh, my God, the Catholic Church has sainted Obama.’ But no, the Catholic Church has shafted Obama. Five new saints and not one of them was President Obama. Obama has been robbed by the Nobel economic team and the Catholic Church. Well, Obama may be bigger than the pope, Snerdley, but he’s not bigger than saints. If they’re going to pass out five saints or elevate five saints a couple days after you give out the Nobel Peace Prize and you don’t put our president on there — I mean, our country is being dissed left and right here.
And then there’s this: ”Nobel Winners Who Probably Changed Your Life. — Forgive the question, but have you had a colonoscopy yet? If the answer is yes, you can thank Charles K. Kao, Willard S. Boyle and George E. Smith, who won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics last week. Four decades ago, the men produced key scientific insights that have led to fiber-optic data transmission and digital photography.’ Let me translate this for you. (interruption) Oh, you think you know where this is going? So the colonoscopy guys, all three of them get a physics Nobel. Three physicists won the Nobel award because of research that allows doctors to peek inside your colon. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because the Nobel committee stuck their heads up his colon, or maybe it was the other way around, maybe he stuck his head up their colons. I know you’re wondering how is this possibly going to relate to President Obama? Leave it to me, ladies and gentlemen. (laughing)
Did you hear what Liz Cheney said? I love Liz Cheney, here’s what she said about the Nobel Peace Prize, she said that, ‘President Obama should send a message to the Nobel Committee at the Dec. 10 awards ceremony in Oslo, suggesting that he skip the ceremony and send the mother of a fallen soldier to show the importance of the war efforts. The notion that this White House says he will go to Oslo to accept this prize just adds to the farce.’ She said this on Fox News Sunday. ‘But I do think he could send a real signal here. I think what he ought to do frankly is send a mother of a fallen American soldier to accept the prize on behalf of the US military and frankly to send the message to remind the Nobel committee that each one of them sleeps soundly at night because the US military is the greatest peacekeeping force in the world today.’
