Rush: Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls of Wisdom

November 15, 2012

“Mitt Romney’s out there saying that Obama won the election because he was focused on certain members of his base coalition. He gave them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then he worked very aggressively to turn ‘em out to vote. So Romney is out saying that Obama was Santa Claus. Where have we heard that before?”

“Surprise, surprise, surprise: ‘Factory activity in the U.S. mid-Atlantic region unexpectedly contracted in November.’ Isn’t it amazing all of the revision we get, particularly in economic news, after the election. Factory activity contracts. Who coulda seen that coming?”

“Freedom has to be fought for. It will not triumph all by itself.”

“If there has been a theme to the corruption of public education, it has been anti-capitalism. That has been the umbrella under which everything else has been taught.”

“What used to be harmless, clever humor, today is heard by the people who’ve been educated the last 30, 35 years, today causes legitimate anger and indignation and charges of cruelty and insensitivity and bigotry or sexism or what have you.”

“You want to see liberalism, look at Detroit. You want to see liberalism, look at California. You want to see liberalism, look at Cuba. You want to see liberalism, look at Venezuela. The Republicans haven’t done it. I don’t know why, don’t care right now.”

“I just saw that the Ding Dong people, Hostess, they said they’re gonna shut the whole thing down forever if this strike doesn’t end today. If you don’t have any Ding Dongs, you may want to go get some because there may not be any more.”

“How’s that possible? There were fewer claims for unemployment in New York after Hurricane Sandy, but New Jersey took the hit? How can that be? Obama went in there and had the big confab with Chris Christie.”

“According to the note that I got from chief of staff to a member of House last night, the leadership of the House has said to the Republican caucus, ‘We’re just gonna let Obama take the reins. We’re just going to let Obama lead for a while and see where it ends up before we decide what we need to do.’ If that’s accurate, I can tell you the House doesn’t sound like they want to play ball on a select committee on Benghazi.”

“I really think that the solution to our problems are not really political. I think conservatives are seen by young people and the left and the pop culture the way they are not because of what these people have been taught about conservatism. It’s purely cultural.”

“Most of the things that I get in, quote, unquote, trouble for, you know, I’ll say something here, it gets all over the media and people, ‘You need to apologize, that’s outrageous. You mean-spirited…’ And you who listen every day know full well all we’re doing here is entertaining, we’re just having fun. They don’t get it.”

“Look at the Bond movies. The entire original concept of Bond is gone. Bond was always fighting totalitarian regimes. Whatever they were called, they were people that controlled, murdered, imprisoned, tortured, whatever, other people, and wanted total domination of the world. Now, that vanished decades ago. And now the villains in Bond movies are almost always evil capitalists.”


Rep. Franks Condemns Hamas, Defends Israel

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) released the following statement strongly criticizing the recent terrorist attacks against Israel by Hamas:

I strongly and unwaveringly condemn the attacks that have so far claimed the lives of three innocent Israeli civilians earlier today.

“The citizens of Israel have for far too long been terrorized by rockets launched by a terrorist regime — Hamas operating in Gaza — with absolutely no regard for innocent life, whether it be the Israeli citizens who endure their cowardly and unprovoked attacks, or the Palestinian citizens behind whom they shamefully hide.

“Over 800 separate rockets have been launched at Israeli communities in the past 11 months.  It is the sovereign right of Israel to defend herself against these acts of terror and to take decisive action in order to defend the lives of the citizens of Israel.”
