“How could I have lost when what I stand for is rock-ribbed conservatism, and all of our Republican candidates claim to carry the conservative mantle?”

“There are some pro-McCain people with some really caustic comments that are aimed at Mitt Romney: ‘He has all this money.’ Well, he needs to spend all that money to counter the free media McCain’s getting from the Drive-Bys!”

“By the way, it’s Mitt Romney, Tom Brokaw. George was his dad. The candidate’s name is Mitt: M-I-T-T. No L’s in there; should not be too tough.”

“I just checked the e-mail: ‘Rush, McCain sounds so good in the speeches that he’s giving. What is your problem?’ I wish the rhetoric matched the deeds.”

“If Ronald Reagan had ever been in the Senate, I don’t think we would have heard about the Reagan-Feingold bill. Or the Reagan-Kennedy bill. Or the Reagan-Lieberman bill on global warming. Reagan worked with liberals to advance his agenda, not theirs.”

“I have experience with computers freezing. I’m not an old person that doesn’t understand these things.”

“Do not underestimate the degree of fear — with a capital F — and intense dislike people have for Hillary Clinton. There are a lot of people for whom, if Bozo the Clown could beat her, they would support Bozo the Clown.”

“Which of the two Americas will benefit the most with Edwards gone? Only time will tell.”

“You Drive-Bys are hoping and praying that conservatism’s dead, and frankly that’s comforting — because if you think you have no enemy you’re not going to prepare for one. And we’ll be happy to sit in the tall grass, waiting to ring you around the neck politically with all of your arrogance and conceit.”

“Presidential candidates come and go, but I am forever. I mean, Clinton’s gone, and I’m still here, right?”

“Barack Obama ought to genuinely be up 14 points like the NY Times says he is. I think William Ayers and ACORN are sticking.”

“Jerry Jones has his massive new $1.1 billion stadium down there in Arlington, Texas, but they can’t find anybody to pay for the naming rights. About the only guy in the country who’s not in debt and has the money to pay for the naming rights would be me. That would be cool: ‘Limbaugh Stadium’.”

“The New York Times today is writing again about ‘the sharply personal attacks on Obama.’ What ‘sharply personal attacks’? All the McCain camp is doing is telling the truth about the little squirrel.”

“To say that Robin Hood is the equivalent of Obama is to malign and impugn Robin Hood. I remember watching Robin Hood when I was growing up, and I remember the sheriff of Nottingham was as evil at that guy on Lost in Space — might have been the same guy, for all I know.”

“Has your school demanded that you come in and watch Algore’s propaganda movie with their students in the past month? No. However, first graders are going on field trips in San Francisco to see their teacher get married to her lesbian lover.”

“Did you see what Sarah Palin did yesterday? Somewhere on the way to a campaign stop, she pulled into a Wal-Mart and bought some diapers. When did you ever think that you would see pictures of a vice presidential candidate buying diapers at Wal-Mart?”

“Isn’t it interesting, ladies and gentlemen, that Obama wants to take from the rich to give to the poor when it comes to money, but when it comes to human life, Obama is willing to allow babies to be killed in order to get their mothers’ votes?”

“Tim Mahoney’s mistress is being treated no worse than most other women Democrats find inconvenient — from Sarah Palin to Hillary Clinton to Monica Lewinsky to Chandra Levy to Paula Jones.”

“Barry promises that there will be no Bill Ayers in the Obama administration. Maybe what McCain ought to do is promise that Bin Laden will not be asked to serve in his cabinet. I mean, can you imagine the absurdity of having to reassure people you won’t give a bomber a job in your administration?”

“Everybody out there, check your credit card bill for the last month to see if somehow $2,300 has been charged to the Obama campaign.”

“Now it is plain for one and all to see: Taking the moderate path of appeasement leads to abysmal defeat.”

“I’ve just been handed a note here: ‘President Dmitri Medvedev orders missiles deployed in Europe as world hails Obama.’ No big deal. Another note: ‘Palestinians launch rocket attack into Israel as world hails Obama.’ No big deal.”

“Now, our road to rebuilding is going to be steep, but I know that as conservatives, we will get there. Can we oppose the belief that one’s earnings must be redistributed for the false promise of fairness? Yes, we can!”

“It’s patently obvious — looking at the election returns — that we have not risen above our own public education.”

“As long as you start making excuses for your failure, you’re never going to get to the core of the problem, and the core of the problem today is that the Republican Party — for some inexplicable reason — decided to abandon conservatism.”

“Last night Obama said, ‘I know there are people out there who didn’t vote for me, but I’m going to listen to you.’ As in, the-Fairness-Doctrine-you’re-going-to-listen-to-us?”

“I love enlightening stupid people. I get euphoric when I turn the light on inside some stupid person’s brain. Does that sound cruel, Mr. Snerdley? Well, what’s wrong with the word ‘stupid’?”

“Exit polls said that 48% of voters said Sarah Palin was a drag on the ticket. Who the hell put that question together and for what purpose? Sarah Palin saved this campaign! Sarah Palin was the closest thing we had to conservatism on parade, and you saw the crowds that she drew!”

“There’s one reason why Obama will not seek a meeting with me: I’m the only guy who might be able to change his mind.”

“How many people would admit to you that they dipped their napkin in ranch dressing at lunch at the White House? That’s how secure of myself I am.”

“So I walked into the Medal of Freedom ceremony yesterday, and one of the first people I see as I’m glancing around is Colin Powell. I just looked at him, and he looked at me, and I just looked at him.”

“Okay, let’s see here, folks: The education nominee cannot speak proper grammar, the treasury nominee doesn’t pay taxes, and the nominee for secretary of state voted for a war that she opposed. Got it.”

“The left has the Republican Party right where they want it. They have a party that’s subservient, cowardly, that’s running around saying, ‘We want Obama to succeed’ — which is tantamount to saying, ‘We want extreme liberalism to succeed.'”

“Bin Laden today has a new tape where he calls for a jihad against Israel. Excuse me, but hasn’t there been a jihad against Israel for decades?”

“What I think last night was about was Barack Obama trying to choose who the conservative leaders are. Now, you might be saying, ‘Rush, how could he do that?’ Well, he’s the president-elect, he’s historic, and he has just given these people who dined with him last night an audience.”

“Yesterday I had my driver take me by the Capitol to see what’s set up for the inauguration. I have never seen so many Port-A-Potties in all my life.”

“A friend said to me, ‘I, frankly, am stunned you just don’t want to get out of politics for a couple of months. Do you realize how depressed we all are out here?’ And I said, ‘Depressed? I am energized, I am honored, and I am happy to be the last man standing.'”

“It is difficult to find, ladies and gentlemen, a time in American history when so many liberals have spent so much time slinging so much mud on an embryonic movement. They are petrified and scared to death of the 500 tea parties!”

“Obama made it plain yesterday in his speech that he wants an entirely new ‘foundation’ on which to build the United States and the US economy. We already have a foundation. It’s called the Constitution!”

“You’re going to be mischaracterized no matter what you do at these tea parties. You could show up singing peace songs in togas and smoke some dope, but they’re still going to call you ‘bitter clingers’ and so forth.”

“Obama proposed building a new foundation for our economy, one built on a rock. What rock? Marxism? Socialism? Hard to say. All we get is the dreamy, silky speeches that promise a better day.”

“I’ve been paying taxes since I was 13, and this is probably the first time in my life that I’ve thought it completely worthless. I have never felt more like throwing money down a bottomless pit.”

“You could put all 535 members of Congress and Obama together and make them work, and they could not generate the kind of revenue they are taking from everybody else. They haven’t the talent, they haven’t the wherewithal, they haven’t the knowledge.”

“Barack Obama could no more produce this country’s GDP to redistribute it himself than anybody else could, yet he believeshe canbecause of his sense of entitlement based on his self-perception of superior intelligence.”

“It’s not bad for a guy like me to have a 30% approval rating in a Muslim country, folks. I’ll take that any day.”

“Did King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia grow six inches? Well, the last time Obama met him, he bowed down and the White House said, ‘No, he wasn’t bowing down, the king is just so much shorter than President Obama.’ Maybe the king was wearing the lifts that have been popularized by Kim Jong-il.”

“When Leahy and Schumer and Kennedy and all the rest apologize to Miguel Estrada, Clarence Thomas, and Janice Rogers Brown, then I might give a damn what they have to say — and that goes for their media puppets in the state-controlled media as well.”

“Lara Logan of CBS News said that Obama ‘has raised the hopes of Muslims all over the world’. What hopes do Middle Eastern Muslims have? Might it have anything to do with Israel? Or do they just want their share of the stimulus money?”

“Just to be clear, I have nothing against anyone’s faith. I just do not like Islamofascist terrorists.”

“Here’s the real problem with nationalized health care, if the Democrats get their way: the concept of individual freedom and liberty will be obliterated. Washington will be able to regulate every facet of our behavior under the guise that it has some kind of a cost impact on health care.”

“I mean, look at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Do they care a whit about making you happy or satisfying you there? Now, imagine that when you go to the doctor under nationalized health care.”

“Obama has lost the only thing he had going into all this, and that’s the trust of a majority of the American people. And without that, he’s got nothing.”

“We have polls today that show that conservatives outnumber liberals in every state in this country, and we have a poll showing that the Democrat Party approval is under 50%. This is a center-right country, so the path for the Republicans here is crystal clear: no deals, present free-market solutions, and reap the rewards.”

“There’s a huge difference between selfishness and self-interest — it’s called staying alive. Remember that? The Bee Gees?”

“By the way, 60,000 AARP members have canceled their membership. That’s a good start. We only have 40 million more to go. But who would have ever thought that a Democrat president could get 60,000 seasoned citizens to tell the AARP to go to hell?”

“This is all happening because we’re finally seeing what ultra-radical leftism is. It is arrogance, it is contempt, and it is Obama finally opening up being exactly who he is.”

“Do you remember when Clinton was talking about welfare reform, and the slogan was, ‘Mend it, don’t end it’? I think with Obamacare rationing, the slogan regarding America’s life spans will be, ‘End it, don’t extend it.'”

“Folks, I cannot tell you how proud of you I am, and I don’t mean to sound paternalistic. I’m saying this as one of you. You and you alone have totally turned this administration upside down and inside out.”

“Let me ask you something: After all these supposed fat cats get their compensation slashed to the bare bone, is your life going to be any better? See, the Democrats are counting on satisfying you simply by fulfilling your desire for revenge.”

“We haven’t suffered any moral failing here in America. Maybe among some elite leftists in Europe, but who gives a crap? Who cares what Hugo Chavez thinks?”

“Remember all the conventional wisdom: ‘Hey, Rush, don’t worry about Bush signing campaign finance reform. The Supreme Court will never find it constitutional.’ Meanwhile, today we have campaign finance reform — which is why when there’s conventional wisdom, you’ll find ol’ El Rushbo running in the opposite direction.”

“As you know, I do not endorse in primaries. My theory is, politicians come and go, but I am forever.”

“All this talk about ‘the American people want the parties to get along’… It’s all a crock. American people don’t like the partisanship? No. What the American people don’t like is the country being taken to hell!”
