Rush Limbaugh Proclaims America a Failure

Not content to root only for the failure of President Obama, on his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh declared America a failure because Obama is succeeding. Rush said, “Ladies and gentleman this country is failing because Obama is succeeding.” Rush claimed that the economy is hopeless, and that we are all doomed.

Here is the audio courtesy of Media Matters:

Rush said, “Ladies and gentleman this country is failing because Obama is succeeding. I don’t care how you choose to measure it. There is no hope on the horizon for a job. There is no hope on the horizon for renewed prosperity. There is no hope on the horizon for economic growth…President Obama’s policies will not fail in one regard. They will not fail in impoverishing and enslaving more and more Americans the longer his policies succeed.”

Limbaugh went on to blame Obama for unemployment, home foreclosures, the auto industry, Wall Street, and the bankruptcy of the state of California. Rush also claimed that he was misquoted, “This is the exact kind of success I wanted to fail and everybody who heard me knew exactly what I meant. It is being used by people on our side of the aisle who are scared to death of conservatives. It is being used by them to say that I am driving moderates away. It is being used by people on the left to say that I want America to fail, when everybody in their brain knows exactly what I meant.”

Obviously, Rush has decided that the economy was just fine before Obama took office. He is ignoring the fact that the recession started in December 2007. The National Association for Business Economics released a survey yesterday that projected that the recession will end in the second half of this year. The recession grew under the Republicans, but Rush is deeming Obama a failure for not fixing it in 3 months.

NABE President Chris Varvares said, “While the overall tone remains soft, there are emerging signs that the economy is stabilizing. The survey found that business economists look for the recession to end soon, but that the economic recovery is likely to be considerably more moderate than those typically experienced following steep declines.” Things aren’t going to be easy, but they are getting better at a slow pace.

This is just one of many projections that say that the economy is stabilizing, but that recovery is going to be slow. Blaming Obama for the decades long problems in the state of California and the auto industry is insane. Blaming Obama for stock markets that are up is delusional. Limbaugh’s cheering against his own country has grown tiresome. He is this close to going down the Bachmann path, by encouraging armed revolution against Obama.

  1. Dude’s already there…crazy as loon. His eyes spin in different directions and his head bobs up and down…back and forth.

    Limbowel is way too white trash for me…

    Ahem…now, can we resume the enlightened part of the discussion?

  2. Well said. The man is a total and complete fool. He makes millions a year spouting trash to the “elite religious right”, you know, the ones who used to burn witches, and yet he thinks of himself as the heart of america. What a joke.

  3. […] to be a rash of naivete on this subject lately. Here’s Rush Limbaugh, quoted in TAPPED Rush Limbaugh Proclaims America a Failure – 05/28/2009 Not content to root only for the failure of President Obama, on his […]

  4. Well how is hope and change working for you ? Where is the stimulus ? The highest unemployment in 25 years. Yes, the recession started in 2008 with the fall of Fannie and Freddie run by the dems. Yes, It was a Bush mistake to bail out GM and the banks but Obama has added to all of these bailouts. He is now into take over mode. This economy is his. He has added trillions to the debt with plans for more. We shall see. The gov owning private companies and adding new taxes to pay for all of the socialism is not a path to prosperity. Their is not a socialist country that is successful anywhere. It does not work. Obama and the dems own it

  5. I saw the video of him saying this and he is sooo angry! His chest is heaving and his eyes are bugged out and he’s spitting his words. I’m not weak or mild mannered but it was unnerving to watch and I could not help but wonder about the people you watch and listen to this guy on a steady basis.

  6. Once again gonna misquote him? Trust me the TRUE meaning behind his words are even more offensive.

    He actually believes that Obama wants ‘America’ to fail, which is why he wanted Obama to fail… he thinks Obama success is America’s failure.

    This may seem delusional for use who see the definition of America as what it actually is, a country, however lets get into his head for a moment to see what he sees America as. Republicans like Rush don’t understand we’re all in this together, this isn’t some good versus evil fight.

    To Rush ‘America’ = the Republican Party. He doesn’t want to believe the He and His Party are not all of America.

    That is the meaning behind his words, no something as simple as he wants America to fail, of course he doesn’t because to him America is the Republican Party, and if Obama succeeds, the Republican Party (America) fails.

    In other words… Democrats are not American, or part of America, in his head.

  7. How people like Limbaugh, Hannity and O’Reilly to name a few get so much credibilty is scary but all one has to do is go back into history to find others cut of the same cloth..Hate and scare-mongerers have for ages found their “audiences” and when they get “publicized” even by good-meaning people , they “fourish”..They flourish because they say outlandish things and bring out the worst in all of us on both sides of an issue..The best way to end this type of “divisiveness” is to ignore them until only their most avid listeners are left to “agree” with one another…And when the purveyors of this “trash” cannot reap profits from radio or TV, they will “fade-away”. They are just a few who prescribe to Goebbels, “principles of propaganda”..We should know better by now…

  8. Obama is an islamic trojan horse and he wants the the US to fail and be destroyed from within economically because they couldn’t do it militarily.

  9. I can’t believe he still has listeners…I know they are mindless hillbillies but come on even a blind pig finds an acorn every now and then.

  10. Actually he once claimed to have 20 million listeners… that may sound like alot, however it is less the 1 in 10 Americans… meaning if some vague statistic is true, there are more gay people in America, then Rush Limbaugh listeners.

  11. Limbogus is the MOST un-patriotic bafoon I have ever seen. Who really cares what teh old fat pill poppin talking head says anyway. Only a few really listen to his rants, and anti-american raves, which should be dealt with by boycotting his sponsors. I Have not heard of any, but I do not trade with ANY of his sponsors, t me they are just as guilty of being un-patriotic as Limbogos himself. All he does is spew HATE over the airwaves, and that should be a crime. I fully believe in freedom of the press, but I also believe that hate mongers, racist ranters, should be silenced, because it only CREATES more hate and racism. I will say though that all the BS coming from Limbogus is bringing the GOP down, I say DAMN GOOD JOB rushmush. This country has had enough of the GOP…..R.I.P….!!!!!!

  12. Irony… a man who accuses someone of anti-American speech saying that free speech should be limited. How is your speech any less hateful?

    He’s just a fat washed up old guy, he’s not worth your anger.
