Limbaugh: Obama Engineering End of America Greatness


rush-limbaughTop-rated talk radio host Rush Limbaugh finds a “silver lining” in the downgrading of America’s credit rating: There no longer is any doubt that President Barack Obama can be roundly defeated in 2012.

“Obamageddon – that’s what we have witnessed since Friday,” Rush told his listeners on Monday.

“Obamageddon. Barackalypse Now. The only silver lining I can find is that as far as 2012 goes, Obama’s a Debt Man Walking. Anybody want to tell me he’s not landslidable now?

“Let me repeat this as the Media Tweak of the Day: ‘What we have witnessed since Friday is Obamageddon, Barackalypse Now. And the only silver lining out there is that as far as 2012 goes, Obama’s now Debt Man Walking.”

In his blistering attack on Obama and the Democrats, Limbaugh asserted that “we have a president that’s overseeing – engineering – the decline of the American republic.”

He also charged that Democrats are trying to play the blame game against Republicans over the financial crisis.

“Obama is always running around complaining and whining and moaning about all that he inherited from George W. Bush,” Rush said.

“Well, he inherited a AAA credit rating, an unemployment rate of 5.7 percent.

Limbaugh’s comments came the Monday after Standard & Poor’s downgraded the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA-plus , and the Dow tanked 634 points. Obama blamed the downgrade on political gridlock in Washington and said he would offer some recommendations on how to reduce federal deficits.

Obama stopped short of sharp criticism of Standard & Poor’s for its downgrade of U.S. debt to AA-plus from AAA on Friday. Senior administration officials have accused S&P of going ahead with the downgrade despite a $2 trillion mathematical error.

“Markets will rise and fall, but this is the United States of America. No matter what some agency may say, we have always been and always will be a triple-A country,” Obama said.

As Obama spoke, stock markets were registering another steep decline, dropping more than 450 points in afternoon trading.

A joint bipartisan congressional committee, to be formed under the legislation passed last week that averted a government default, is to report its recommendations in late November on how to cut $1.5 trillion in spending over a decade.

Obama said he would offer his own recommendations for fixing the problem and cited again the need to raise taxes on wealthier Americans and make modest adjustments to popular but expensive entitlement programs.

Limbaugh took the president’s comments about the S&P, and threw them right back.

“What are the Democrats doing? Blaming the referees! Blaming Standard & Poor’s! That always changes the outcome, doesn’t it? Blame the refs.

“So go ahead and blame Standard & Poor’s all you want, Democrats. Now they’re blaming the military! Barney Frank and the Democrats are trying to say it’s the military’s fault that we’ve been downgraded.

“This is the fault of the Democrat Party,” Limbaugh said, exasperated.

Limbaugh went on to say: “So now we know what Obama got for his birthday: A downgrade of our credit rating, probably exactly what he wanted in his heart of hearts . . .

“World War II, we had a AAA credit rating, and we lose it now, and for what? For what great purpose did we lose it? Except an ideological hatred of American capitalism and a love of class warfare, what did we lose our AAA rating for?

“Think about it: Obama’s finally managed another major accomplishment on that list he told us he had, that list that he said he’d only done about 70 percent so far. At long last, Obama and his fellow Democrats have finally been able to convince the world that we are just another country, after all. There’s nothing exceptional about us or our economy.

“For crying out loud, France has a higher credit rating than we do. France! They produce cheese and perfume, for crying out loud!”

But one person who does not buy into the theory that Obama is deliberately undermining the economy is Donald Trump. The billionaire developer said on Monday that the president is incompetent not malicious.

“There is a theory that he is doing it on purpose but I absolutely do not believe that. He’s just ill-equipped to be president,” Trump told New York’s WOR radio. “Tremendous wrong moves are being made.”

Host Steve Malzberg asked him if he thinks that Obama takes a sip of champagne every time a trillion dollars goes out of the economy.

“No, I really don’t,” replied Trump. “You just have a president who is not doing a good job.”

  1. Rush Limbaugh is one of the most astute political commentators in the United States today.

    Frum Yidden are the most intelligent people on the planet.

    There is no wonder that our highly intelligent populace are politically conservative and follow Mr. Limbaugh. The two go hand in hand.

  2. Rush hasn’t known what he’s talking about for 20 years. With his 400 million dollar contract he’s laughing at us all the way to the banks.
    Remember when he promised he would leave the country if Obama was elected in 2008!
    Trump is another winner. Didn’t the Donald declare bankruptcy once upon a time.

  3. BHO and Hillary are fans of Saul Alinsky from decades ago.
    Don’t tell me you don’t know about Alinsky? And what about George Soros???. “You could look it up.”

  4. This is a typical demagogue!

    Let see who is more American and a patriot:
    limbaugh said
    “we have a president that’s overseeing – engineering – the decline of the American republic.”
    The President said:
    “Markets will rise and fall, but this is the United States of America. No matter what some agency may say, we have always been and always will be a triple-A country,”

    While Rusha spreads fear and distord the facts because that is his parnoso, our President assured us the we live in a great country that will always be responsable.

  5. Rabbi Goldstein is always echoing Leftist talking points.

    Rush is just stating the simple facts that anyone with common sense would agree to.

    All the onerous regulations, inhibition of energy production and wild spending based on borrowing far beyond our means are obvious killers of our economy. Standard and Poors would be derelict in their duty if they didn’t react to this business killing approach of the Democrats.

    Obama’s cheap rah rah rah speech is meaningless in the face of his business crushing policies.

  6. Basically, you are going to be inundated by rancor from the right no matter what this president does or does not do in his tenure. The right can not produce a reasonable plan or a reasonable way to get out of debt other than stealing from the weak and poor and sick in our nation. But thats ok. This is why we have a Barackalypse in our midst. Go Obama, you are the one that they all wanted in 2008 and even as early as 2004! We are all proud of your diligence and your honor. Get those lying wicked republicans and keep our nation afloat!

  7. Comment No.6
    As when Im driving…when I want to get somewhere, sometimes I have to go left sometimes right.

    I do not consider smart to be a member of a political party and follow all they say. I consider myself a moderate in some issues Im to the right and in some to the left. I defend the President on this one because it was the tea party that put USA prestige on the line to carry policies that are to extreme for the times. The people that elected them had no idea what was at stake. I do not seat and listen to a monotonous demagodue that convinces me how to think. S&P made a miscalculation 200,000 million dolars and then put the blame with the excuse of political debating in congress. Additionally I have a memory I saw how this country went into debt
    during the Bush years.

    To be obgective is very very smart.

  8. I don’t think people become presidents of countries to see it accedently not working out!
    You have advisers and experts running a country and you also dont need to do much in order to see it fall but you do have to do a lot to see it grow. He did nothing to put a halt to the downslide at the least!

  9. Why in the world do you keep telling us what he says? He is a worthless entertainer who shouldn’t be given the time of day. No matter how many listeners he has or how much money he makes.

  10. We hope that Rabbi Goldstein is more knowledgable in rabbinics then he is in politics. If he is an Obaama follower, then we see how smart he is. Is he a Rabbi of a congregation or just in the phone book???

  11. I think that for a debate and opinions to be useful and interesting we must refrain from name calling and to disqualify others. I respect anyones opinion and should debate to the point being discused.

    You make it seem that I have to agree with Rush Limbaugh in order to be a Rabbi……
    That makes Rush Limbaugh the guideline of rabbinical ordinations…..Hashem yashmireinu!
