Caller Wants Palin to Lead Conservatives

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on July 29, 2013

Calgary_March2010_sarah

During today’s Rush Limbaugh Show a caller discusses his desire for Sarah Palin to lead conservatives in a take over of the Republican Party.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here’s Greg in Nashua, New Hampshire.  You’re next on the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  Based on what you’re saying about the Republican Party abandoning a large chunk of the American population — including conservatives — or even being any real opposition to the Democrats on Obamacare and apparently everything else, I’m wondering whether Sarah Palin’s recent gambit that if the GOP… I think she calls them the GOP brain trust on the Greta show.  If the GOP is indeed abandoning her as well as a large swath of American voters, she’s going independent.  Palin is a prominent Republican. Even beyond what Ted Cruz or Mike Lee has said, she’s broached the topic of going outside the GOP if need be, and maybe she’s right on target there. Maybe she can lead the way out of this conundrum of the Dems and the GOP, apparently, being joined at the hip, at least on Obamacare and probably a lot more.

RUSH:  Well, you mean by going third party?

CALLER:  Yeah, or thing if… Turn the party over to her she’ll go third.

RUSH:  Now, wait a minute.  I think I mighta missed something.  Nobody is gonna turn the party over to anyone.   More

Rush Limbaugh: Sarah Palin was right – the death panels have always been in Obamacare

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 29, 2012

Video retrieved from   (h/tp C4P)

From the transcript (emphasis mine):

CALLER:  Okay.  But I was wondering if you came across an article by Steven Rattner in the New York Times called “Beyond Obamacare” where the very first line of the article is “WE need death panels”?

[…]

RUSH:  I don’t read it [New York Times]. Is that really…? Steven Rattner was the car czar.  He was the first car czar.  He’s Little Pinch Sulzberger’s best friend.

[…]

CALLER:  Yeah.  I tried to get you yesterday, ’cause you were talking about somebody bringing up how stupid Sarah Palin is, and I’m sitting here saying, “I remember how crazy the left went when she brought up death panels or Betsy McCaughey would bring it up or you would bring it up or Glenn Beck brings it up.” We’re always crazy when we bring up these things, but here we are right here in the New York Times, Steven Rattner, one of Obama’s guys puts it right out there. “WE need death panels.”  Then he goes on to say, well, maybe we should call it rationing.

RUSH:  You know, I don’t know what he’s wishing for.  They’re already there.

CALLER:  Yeah.

RUSH:  We’ve already got rationing in Obamacare.  There’s already going to be death panels. (interruption) Snerdley just found it and has confirmed your reading of the story.

CALLER:  Yeah, another quote that I think is kind of exciting is you’re talking about how Obama’s giving away cell phones and all that stuff. So I guess we’re entitled to cell phones but it says here “that elderly Americans are not entitled to every conceivable medical procedure or pharmaceutical.”  So they’ll give you phones, they’ll give you food stamps, but they won’t give you life.

RUSH:  Let me tell you what this is.  Let me tell you what this is.  Rattner just doesn’t one day decide to write this piece.

CALLER:  No!

RUSH:  Just like last November, Thomas Edsall didn’t just decide to write a piece that the Obama campaign was writing off white working-class voters.  That piece was aimed right at New York Times readers, and the purpose of that piece is to get it out there that there are going to be death panels so that when it happens, they’re ready. Particularly the death panels are gonna be judging whether or not the elderly live. It’s exactly what we’ve all said!

CALLER:  Yes.

RUSH: It’s whether or not it makes sense to spend the money to keep ’em alive.

CALLER:  Amen, and there it’s right there.

RUSH:  Obama, you remember the ABC special where the woman asked Obama about her hundred-year-old mother, whether or not she could get a pacemaker and Obama said, “No, no, no. Maybe let’s give her a pill.” The death panels have always been in there.  Palin put it out there, and the reason they jumped on her is because she was right. She revealed what was supposed to be a hidden truth.

CALLER:  Yep.  And that just goes back to what you’ve always said, Rush, that you can always tell when you hit a nerve by the way they react.  When the truth comes out, if they react really nuts then you hit ’em.

RUSH:  Yep.

CALLER:  You got ’em.

RUSH:  Stuck pigs.  I mean, it really is true.  Okay.  Well, thanks for the heads up, Rick.  So Steven Rattner, Obama’s car czar, big friend of Little Pinch Sulzberger.  It’s a piece entitled “Beyond Obamacare,” is that what it is?  “Beyond Obamacare,” by Steven Rattner. “WE need death panels.”  That’s how it starts.  Well, see, Rattner knows that there are already death panels in it.  By death panel, I mean: “As the secretary shall determine…” That’s the secretary of Health and Human Services right now, Sebelius.

So she will appoint panels that will decide.

Once Obamacare is fully implemented, folks, once it’s fully implemented, there will be rationing.  There can’t be any alternative to that once the government’s responsible for paying for everything. They don’t have an endless supply of money, either.  The question will be, “Does it make more sense to spend a lot of money on surgery or treatment or pharmaceuticals for somebody statistically close to death, or does it make sense to save that money and spend it on a young person that might end up in an accident or what have you?”

That’s gonna be the calculation.

Your life will actually come down to a dollars-and-cents value assigned to you — as a number, by the way — by the government.  It was always part of Obamacare.  Sarah Palin was right.  It was always there. We’ve all been right.  They’re lying about everything to us.  In fact, that debate next Wednesday night, you know we ought to do? Do a Lie-o-Meter.  We ought to just sit there and just scratch it up. Every time Obama lies about something, make a note. And at the end of the debate, add ’em up, ’cause it’s gonna be one lie after another.

That’s all Obama’s been doing.

That’s all he can do, if his record comes up, is lie about it.

Limbaugh: “Pure and Simple. Sarah Palin Was Not The Mistake On That Ticket.”

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on August 1, 2012

During today’s show, Rush Limbaugh responds to Dick Cheney’s comment that choosing Governor Sarah Palin as the 2008 vice presidential candidate was a “mistake”.

Political March Madness

Posted by Adrienne Ross on March 13, 2012

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Those of us who love and follow the game of basketball have a special appreciation for this time of year. March Madness, baby! But the NCAA tournament hasn’t even started, and madness is already running rampant–in the political world, that is. All around the country, March will work its magic, uniting teams and clarifying goals, bringing out the best in players and igniting fans. Meanwhile, the current political madness is working a whole different kind of magic.

March began with the sad news of the death of conservative warrior Andrew Breitbart who unexpectedly departed this life on the first day of the month. He was just about to share with the world some videos that further reveal President Obama’s penchant for choosing some rather–shall we say?–questionable characters to run around with. Breitbart was just about to relaunch his website. In the blink of an eye, he was gone. That was the start of the unforeseen madness, a loss many are still struggling to wrap their brains around. He left behind a wife, four children, and an inspired army of patriots who are determined to take up the mantle. His work continues.

Then, just a couple days into March, the Sandra Fluke controversy grew wings and liberals grew outraged–selectively, of course–at comments Rush Limbaugh made concerning the law student’s baffling desire to have others pay for her desires. Rush subsequently apologized, but of course that wasn’t enough for liberals. As usual, they wanted to use the situation for political gain. Even the President got involved, invoking his daughters. Never mind the fact that people on his side of the aisle have said things so vile that his daughters wouldn’t be able to attend a movie that includes language liberals use to describe conservatives. The hypocrisy of the left is maddening, and we’ve come to expect it. However, we should be able to expect more from the President of the United States. The fact that we do not have a President who will preside fairly over all people, but only over those who fall into his ideological bubble, speaks volumes about the insanity of the time in which we live, a time when partisanship trumps all, when politicians’ mouths move in two different directions, or not at all–as in times that they choose to remain silent when they actually ought to speak.

For example, what we get from members of Congress is a refusal to condemn misogynist Bill Maher who repeatedly demeans Governor Palin, the man who has said things that even I’m not, as they say, a mature enough audience to listen to, and may I never be so mature. What we get from our President, too, is a refusal to answer a question a journalist poses about a million dollar donation Maher made to his campaign. The President–the concerned father that he is–has no problem accepting what Governor Palin has called “dirty money.” And with all his talk about civility, he still has yet to call out the numerous vulgar, sexist comments made about Governor Palin and other conservative women. What does he do instead? He calls Sandra Fluke to demonstrate his support for her. Really?

Madness is definitely running rampant when the President’s campaign puts out a video attacking Governor Palin, twisting her words to make her appear to be a dangerous racist. Their methods bring me back to a time in the not too distant past when Katie Couric and her team spliced and diced tape to create a false image of Governor Palin. But Couric has nothing on Obama’s people; they’re actually using their dishonest video as a fundraiser to make more dirty money. I call it such because it’s being collected on a knowingly false premise. We could spend all day on the ridiculosity of a President targeting a private citizen–an irrelevant one at that, so he would have us believe. This irrelevant woman somehow manages to provoke the most powerful man in the free world to hold brainstorming sessions to figure out how to handle her influence. And for those who say it’s Obama for America, not the President himself, who is responsible for this, let’s be real. Does anyone really think he doesn’t have his hands all up and through what gets circulated in the name of his re-election?

Let’s not forget that in the spirit of intense competition affiliated with the madness of March, HBO strategically planned the release date of Game Change, which they hoped would be a game changer itself. They expected Governor Palin to be knee-deep in a presidential campaign now, and they had just the thing to cut her down–a movie composed of a plethora of both flagrant fouls and bad calls by officials on the take. They clearly hadn’t imagined that she was being genuine when she repeatedly said she didn’t need a title to make a difference. Now it’s the fourth quarter in this game of politics President Obama and his surrogates have been playing, and they know the clock is winding down. Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose. However, their attempts to send Governor Palin limping to the bench, never to re-emerge, have fallen flat and will continue to fall flat. If they haven’t figured that out yet, I recommend they take note of her high school championship basketball game in March of 1982 when, injured, the Wasilla Warrior nailed the shot that secured the state championship for her team. It’s 2012, but she’s still a warrior, and this is March after all.

HBO’s sensationalism might appeal to those hungry for more of the same lame anti-Palin propaganda, but everyone with a modicum of common sense knows that the same person who turned her hometown into the fastest growing business city in Alaska, defeated a big-name incumbent in her run for governor of the largest state, possessed an approval rating of nearly 90 percent, exposed corruption, negotiated the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history, became the first woman on the Republican ticket, energized the Party, and carried Senator McCain farther than he could have possibly gone without her, all while raising a wide-ranging family, could not possibly be the same individual Julianne Moore portrays. Furthermore, why would anyone believe sources who are too afraid to reveal their identities when sources close to the Governor, people with real names and identifiable faces, have shot the movie down?

As smart as liberals purport to be, enveloped in their ivy league world of academia, they sure can’t put two and two together, and they certainly don’t think the rest of us can. I’m just one of those bitter clingers, so excuse me as I steal a line from Scripture to address them: “Much learning doth make thee mad.”

March has always brought basketball enthusiasts a yearning for more and more madness. We make predictions, fill out brackets, and enjoy the ride. We experience the proverbial thrill of victory and the agony of defeat–and we love every minute of it. The political madness this March has been a horse of different color, however. And lest I be blamed for that old-fashioned Republican “racism” (Yes, even black conservatives get accused of being racist against the President), let me help ease liberals’ race-card-playing minds: I’m speaking metaphorically, okay? It’s that season, and folks have lost their minds, sure enough. It leaves rational people pondering what April might bring. Considering what liberals have done with the concept of March Madness, there’s no telling what they might attempt with April Fools’ Day.

Limbaugh: P-A-L-I-N is Only 5 Letters to Write In

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on December 21, 2011

Several friends shared this clip on Facebook and after months of GOP campaigning, it’s intriguing that conservatives are still not satisifed with the slate of candidates.  At this point in time, I have to say that I agree with Rush Limbaugh. P-A-L-I-N is very easy to write in and if I’m not feeling that “fire in the belly” for one of the existing candidates, I suspect that writing in Sarah Louise Heath Palin will be the option that I choose.

 

 

This is the Wall Street Journal article written by Jeb Bush that Limbaugh refers to.

The Latest Polling Explained

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 19, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Lots of bogus polling out there lately. We’ve been working on a comprehensive guide to understanding polls, and how to spot a bogus poll from a credible one. In the mean time, Rush talks about the latest polls concerning Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. He’s on a roll, but starts explaining the problems at 2:14 in the video.

One of the real problems, other than the reliability of the sample group: “adults” vs “likely voters” is the fact the new polling doesn’t tell you the political breakdown. In other words, the percentage of Republicans, Independents, and democrats polled.

All legitimate polls will have, buried somewhere deep in the internals, this break down. Almost all over-sample democrats, even though fewer people claim to be democrats than Republicans or Independents. This pollster is notorious for it.They do this because they are looking for a certain result.

Any poll that doesn’t publish it’s breakdown should be disregarded as meaningless. We notice a lot of polls concerning Sarah Palin never publish their internals at all, let alone the political break down. I wonder why.

As Rush points out, the same pollster who put out this bogus polling also put out one that claimed the public was quite pleased with the nonsense that went on during the lame duck session of the 111th Congress, where the democrats shoved bills through that no one wanted.

Yeah, that’s why there are several bills circulating now through Congress to ban lame duck sessions altogether. That’s how pleased America was with the democrats lame duck session!

The truth is, these polls aren’t designed to measure public opinion, they are designed to SHAPE public opinion. To create a headline out of whole cloth. To create a narrative. It’s an old trick that sadly, many people fall for.

60 Minutes: Vote Sarah Palin Most Influential Conservative

Posted by Ron Devito on November 30, 2009

In an unscientific poll conducted by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair, Governor Palin is currently ranked as the fourth most influential conservative voice in the United States. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and former Vice President Cheney have the number one through three ranks respectively. Talk show host, Sean Hannity is fifth, ranking behind Governor Palin (60 Minutes Poll, 2009).

Governor Palin’s ranking is fantastic considering that she does not have a nationally syndicated talk show on either radio or TV; and has not held high federal office. From the foregoing, we see that she is ranked more influential than Sean Hannity who has nationally syndicated talk shows on both radio and TV!

Governor Palin’s core communications methods are her <a href=”http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin”>Facebook</a&gt; and <a href=”http://www.twitter.com/sarahpalinusa”>Twitter</a&gt; accounts.

But…let’s not settle for No. 4. Get her to Number 1! Get on and vote!

Sarah on Rush

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 17, 2009

By Shane Vander Hart, Caffeinated Thoughts

For those of you who were hoping for more policy talk (unlike the Oprah interview) in some of Governor Sarah Palin’s interviews this week for her new book Going Rogue: An American Life.  The interview she did with Rush Limbaugh this afternoon provides that.

 

The transcript can be found here.  Some excerpts below…

On job creation & the current unemployment rate:

It’s over 10%, and in fact it could be closer to 17 or 18 when you consider those who have kind of given up and not applying for unemployment benefits. So it’s bad, it’s really bad and then of course Fed Chair Bernanke announced that there are still weak job prospects for the very short term and probably long term, and that’s an uncomfortable place for our country to be.  What we need to do is shift gears and really head in another direction because what we’re doing right now with the fed, it’s not working. We need to cut taxes on the job creators.  This is all about jobs, creating jobs.  We have to ramp up industry here in America, and of course reduce the federal debt, quit piling on and growing more.  But those common sense solutions there, especially with the cutting taxes on the job creators, that’s not even being discussed.  In fact, increased taxes is the direction it sounds like Obama wants to go.

She pretty much put to rest any speculation that she’ll start or run with a third party:

You know, to be brutally honest, I think that it’s a bit naive when you talk about the pragmatism that has to be applied in America’s political system. And we are a two-party system. Ideally, sure, a third party or an independent party would be able to soar and thrive and put candidates forth and have them elected, but I don’t think America is ready for that.  I think that it is… Granted it’s quite conventional and traditional, but in a good way that we have our two parties, and I think that that’s what will remain. And I say that, though, acknowledging that I’m not an obsessive panther, I understand why people — good people like my own husband — refuse to register in a party. Todd’s not a Republican and yet he’s got more common sense conservatism than a whole lot of Republicans that I know because he is one who sees the idiosyncrasies of the characters within the machine and it frustrates him along with a whole lot of other Americans who choose to be independent.  But in answer to your question, I don’t think that the third party movement will be what’s necessary to usher in some common-sense conservative ideals.

Palin on our greatest challenge with energy:

And our greatest challenge with energy is that we’re not tapping it to the abundant domestic supplies that God created right underfoot on American soil and under our waters. It’s ridiculous that we are circulating hundreds of billions of dollars a year in foreign countries, asking them to ramp up production so that we can purchase it from them — especially from the regimes that can control us via energy, using it as a weapon against us, potentially. It’s nonsense that this administration and past administrations haven’t really understood yet that inherent link between energy and security. I think more and more Americans are waking up to the fact, though, and we will hopefully see changes there soon.

On her thoughts on the health care reform bills:

Well, we don’t really know, do we, what’s in that Senate version, the Senate consideration? It will be soon but we have no idea of costs. We don’t know how many will be insured. We’re waiting to hear that. We don’t know if the tax funding of abortions will be in this new version that’s sitting over on the Senate side. We don’t know if those who choose not to purchase this government-mandated level of coverage will face jail time as punishment. There are so many questions unanswered. I don’t like the idea, in general, of the federal government thinking it needs to take over health care — which essentially this is — and control one-sixth of our economy. Not when there are common-sense solutions to meeting health care challenges in our country, like allowing the intra- and interstate competition with insurers, tort reform, cutting down on the waste and fraud that the Obama administration insists if we just did that we’ll pay for this one-point-some trillion-dollar health care reform package. So lots of common sense solutions that need to be plugged in before ever considering federal government taking it over.

Her thoughts on National Security, our threats:

Well, I think domestically a threat that we’re facing right now is the dithering and hesitation in sending a message to the terrorists that we’re going to claim what Ronald Reagan claimed. Our motto is going to be: “We win, you lose.” The way that we do that is allow McChrystal to have the reinforcements that he’s asking for in Afghanistan. That sends that message to the terrorists over there that we’re going to end this thing with our victory. We need to start facing Iran with tougher and tougher sanctions that need to be considered. We need to work our allies with the Iranian issues, like Britain and France and not allow access to favorable international monetary deals. That’s a great threat that I think would kind of shake up Ahmadinejad and get him to listen. We need to look at halting Iran’s imports of refined petroleum products. They’re quite reliant on imported gasoline, and we need to use that hammer to wake up the leadership there, too. Those are two big challenges that we have right now, domestically and in naming those two countries, Afghanistan and Iran. Two big challenges there, too.

For a an interview that was less than 20 minutes they covered a lot of ground.  Be sure to listen (above) or read the whole thing.

Rush Limbaugh: Sarah Palin’s Book Is “Truly One Of The Most Substantive Policy Books I’ve Read”

Posted by Gary P Jackson on November 14, 2009

Was listening live when I heard el Rushbo say this. Rush was announcing that he had interviewed Sarah Palin for the upcoming issue of his popular Limbaugh Letter.

Here’s a transcript of Friday’s show. Limbaugh also announced that he would interview Sarah live on the air Tuesday in the second hour of his show which will be 1 pm Eastern noon Central across the EIB Network.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Yesterday afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, I interviewed Governor Palin for the upcoming issue of the Limbaugh Letter. It will be our cover story. I think it was the first time other than an interview with me — sometimes I do interview myself in the newsletter because the best questions I ever get asked are the ones I ask myself. But she’s the cover story, she’s the interview, and she will be here live on the radio next Tuesday, the day her book is released, at the top of the second hour. I talked to her yesterday, I’ve got the book, I have it right over there and I’ve had a chance, I just got it a couple days ago, three days ago, and I’ve had a chance to go through it, and I made a prediction to her when I talked to her yesterday. I said, “You’ve got enough in here that people who get hold of this, like the AP or any of the State-Controlled Media, they’re gonna focus on the soap opera aspects of your book, and they’re going to ignore what is truly one of the most substantive policy books I’ve read.”

This woman, Governor Palin, clearly is jazzed by policy, particularly environmental policy and energy policy, as well as taxes and so forth. I talked to her about the future of the Republican Party, what she thought about New York-23, how she deals with the character assassination, not just of herself, but of her entire family. It was fascinating, and we’ll do it again on Tuesday afternoon at one o’clock eastern time. She sent out a message here on Facebook: “‘Keep Your Powder Dry’ — As you probably have heard, the AP snagged a copy of my memoir, Going Rogue, before its Tuesday release. And as is expected, the AP and a number of subsequent media outlets are erroneously reporting the contents of the book. Keep your powder dry, read the book, and enjoy it! Lots of great stories about my family, Alaska, and the incredible honor it was to run alongside Senator John McCain. We can’t wait to hit the road and meet so many on the book tour! See you in Michigan first.” That’s Sarah Palin’s post — her reacting.

One of the things the AP is focusing on is nonsense. I should have printed out the AP story. I didn’t do it. Rather than try to paraphrase it I’ll find it during the break. (interruption) Well, not going after her son-in-law? You mean this Levi? He’s not her son-in-law, but no, she doesn’t mention him. She doesn’t mention him in the book. Nobody can stop talking about this guy, this Levi Johnston, but she doesn’t mention him in the book. She’s pretty open and honest about being locked up and confined and not allowed to be herself by certain people in the McCain campaign, Nicolle Wallace who set her up with the Katie Couric interview. You know, I told you that I had some friends in town last week and I blew my stack again when one of them started asking me questions about Sarah Palin based on media reports. This guy brought up the Palin-Katie Couric interview and that’s when I started throwing the napkin. I said, “Don’t you know what happened there?”

Nicolle Wallace, who used to work at CBS, pushed that interview on Couric to help Couric. Couric’s numbers were in the tank, and she told Palin some things that were not true, and most of that interview ended up on the cutting room floor. The substance of the interview, it was a total setup, a total setup. “Well, why didn’t she know that?” She was on a leash. When you read this book, you’ll find that they dressed her. She wanted to wear her clothes. They started this whole controversy about paying for the clothes, were they donated, this kind of thing. They would not let her mention, they wouldn’t let her give a shout-out to George Bush during the campaign for keeping the country safe after 9/11. They wouldn’t let her make a concession speech alongside McCain the night that he gave what many thought was his best speech of the campaign.

There are many other instances of stuff inside the campaign that I think will help people understand what the real problem or series of problems was. I mean she really dishes it out at Steve Schmidt, who was the campaign manager. They wouldn’t let her go back and talk to the press on the campaign plane. I woulda gone nuts had I been in that position, that muzzled and that directed. But, you know, she’s not hard on McCain. She talks about it was an honor serving with him as his vice presidential nominee. Anyway, you’ll learn all of this when you read the book, it’s going to come out to Tuesday. It’s going to set sales records, it already has. One-and-a-half million printing is what’s the original, and it’s going to go higher than that.

END TRANSCRIPT

As usual, Rush is right. Mark Halperin of Time Magazine is out there chirping: “Don’t look for hefty policy prescriptions.” [ in Sarah’s book] I think I’ll trust Rush Limbaugh over Halperin.
