Rush Limbaugh is officially ashamed of America for "the first time," he announced Thursday.
The reason? The so-called budget sequestration, which President Obama and Democrats say could do serious danger to the economy if Congress can't do a deal before March 1st. Limbaugh wasn't buying it.
The radio host said that "to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it's being, it just makes me ashamed."
"Here they come -- sucking us in, roping us in, panic here, fear there, crisis, destruction, no meat inspection, no cops, no teachers, no firefighters, no air traffic control," he said. "I'm sorry, my days of getting roped into all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class of both parties play along all of this -- it's insulting. I don't know how else to describe it!" source
Really Rush...I mean really???
You are ashamed about us?
Rush Limbaugh -- a man who has become obscenely rich by peddling racism, fear, sexism, hatred and flat-out ignorance for a living (just google Limbaugh's top 10 racist or sexist quotes) -- obviously has no clue or care about his divisive presence in America society.
Rush Limbaugh -- married four times, ex-addict, fired from ESPN because of hateful comments, called a young woman a slut on live radio -- together with FOX have done more to divide our country than any other figure or organization.
Rush Limbaugh, while our country was in a economic free fall after 8 disastrous years of Bush/Cheney policies, famously quoted to the incoming President Obama: "I hope you fail"
Mr. Limbaugh, you are,arguably, the biggest American embarrassment. Shoot, even former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough has called you and FOX out:
Joe Scarborough lashed out at conservative "media culture" on Tuesday's "Morning Joe," telling viewers that Rush Limbaugh and Fox News have not been good for the Republican party.
Scarborough urged Republicans to look beyond those two outlets. "Just for conservatives that think they have to stay in their own little media world, since Rush Limbaugh went on the air and became a national figure, Republicans have lost five out of the last six presidential elections in the popular vote," he said. "Since Fox News went on the air in 1996, Republicans have lost four out of the five last —"
"Please keep doing what you're doing," co-host Mika Brzezinski joked.
"When Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon had to go up against a media culture that absolutely hated them... and there were no conservative outlets, they won 49 states," Scarborough continued. He said that he turns to conservative outlets as well as mainstream media, but added, "for people who think they have to stay in the little box, I got bad news for you: it's not working." source
