Video: I’m okay, says Rush

posted at 1:10 pm on January 2, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via the Right Scoop, a belated dose of holiday cheer from yesterday’s presser. They don’t know what happened but it couldn’t have been too serious: Not only was he out of the hospital last night, he was in high enough spirits here to turn this into a stump speech for the status quo in American health care.

He’ll be back in front of the golden microphone sometime this week.

You’d think on an issue as serious as this we can all be in agreement without the childish name-calling.

Faking? I had what I thought were severe chest pains in my late 20′s. If you have never had chest pains and know that they are usually not a good sign they are all severe. It freaks you out and the more I worried about the pain the worse they got so I went to the doctor. Mine were not heart related at all but due to stress and anxiety according to the doctors. I’m 46 now and have only had the pains a few times since then.

kahall on January 2, 2010 at 4:22 PM

THANK GOD!!! What would we do without Rush….

reshas1 on January 2, 2010 at 4:17 PM

FIFY.

And the thing is, at this point you can make the case that we would be able to carry on quite nicely whenever Rush does pass on. The movement that he has created will most definitely survive him. Conservative talk radio and the conservative blogosphere is truly too big to fail.

Rush is an invaluable resource and he would be truly missed in so many ways but we would carry on thanks to his pioneering work. He will live on.

A Conservative has needed only two things to succeed:

Liberals and the Truth.

Is that why Leftists are afraid to tell people they’re “liberal”, so lie and say they’re “progressive”?

Del Dolemonte on January 2, 2010 at 4:41 PM

I have had chronic back problems for over 25 years, and it causes me to have many different pains all over my body. It also at times causes severe indigestion, and the pains in my chest feel very much like what a heart attack might feel like, at least to a person who has never had a heart attack. I’ve always said I’ll never know when I really have a severe problem because I always know it’s my back. I have a very good chiropractor to help me keep going, but it is a constant in my life. Rush, find a great chiropractor. Most of our ailments stem from our spines being unaligned.

silvernana on January 2, 2010 at 4:48 PM

Too bad Bambi couldn’t spare a few minutes out of his busy schedule to visit Rush in the hospital. That might have been too bi-partisan.

After all, how much can we expect a “tired” president to do? sarc/off.

walkingboss on January 2, 2010 at 5:10 PM

Good news!! I hope Rush will get further evaluations. I had pancreatitis and it felt like a heart attack.

DanaSmiles on January 2, 2010 at 5:56 PM

We love you Rush. We will continue to pray for your good health. Rest up and we’ll see you on the dittocam later this week. :)

Branch Rickey on January 2, 2010 at 6:25 PM

I love Rush and prayed for him. Glad that he says he’s totally okay. Prove it Rush…. get your butt back behind the microphone right away, we have been waiting for 2 weeks and we need you!!! If you are okay – they come on buddy – back in the saddle.

suzyk on January 2, 2010 at 6:34 PM

Thank God Hawaii already instituted many of the reforms that are included in the health care reform bill before Congress.

Or we’d have no more Rush!!!!!!

harry on January 2, 2010 at 7:00 PM

What the hell are you talking about?

Hawai’i has none of the reforms that are in that monstrosity of a health care bill. Rush got best in class health case from Queens Medical Center because the center has state of the art technology and world class physicians.

Once the government takes over health care, which is what the Obama, Reid, and Pelosi bill really is, you can expect that state of the art medical quality care to come to a screeching halt, except for those who can afford it.

So, here’s your big chance.
Provide specific details, with credible sourcing, that validate your statement.

You’ll have instant credibility with the HA audience, if you can do this, and teach us something new.

But, be warned; most of us think you just posted a lie; if you don’t substantiate your argument, we will know that you have.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/17/health/policy/17hawaii.html?_r=1&sq=hawaii%20health%20care&st=cse&scp=1&pagewanted=all%20

Because of these reforms:

Hawaii’s health insurance premiums are nearly tied with North Dakota for the lowest in the country, and Medicare costs per beneficiary are the nation’s lowest.

So, he said, the emergency room in Hawaii is not clogged with patients suffering minor problems like medication adjustments and cold symptoms, and patient waiting times are a small fraction of those in Los Angeles

Rush got treated in a socialist system, it not indicative of any of state.

harry on January 2, 2010 at 7:56 PM

Huffpo tells a lie and harry runs with it. Rush was praising the health care he recieved, not the overall healthcare system throughout Hawaii

Tell me, if I get a steak from my local restaurant and tell everybody it was good, does that mean all restaurants are good?

harry on January 2, 2010 at 8:07 PM

Hawaii law requires employers to offer standardized health plans with low co-pays, no deductibles and few out-of-pocket costs. Cliff Cisco, a senior vice president at the Hawaii Medical Service Association, said that having a standardized and popular benefit has helped keep administrative costs to just 7 percent of revenue, among the lowest in the nation.

It’s the law there folks. Best healthcare there is….

Well that’s what Rush said.

harry on January 2, 2010 at 8:17 PM


“They found absolutely nothing wrong.”


. . . with his heart. Yet this does not answer for Rush’s chest pain. Identifying the source of Rush’s chest pain must be resolved before accepting a total clean bill of health. I certainly hope he seeks a second opinion with his own personal physician when he gets back home.
Rush mentioned @2:30 he felt chest pain

“. . .like he never felt before. I sat down, walked around. . .nothing abated.”

Gallstones (video) can cause chest pain which is not resolved with movement or repositioning. A gall stone attack can mimic the symptoms of a heart attack.

When gall stones block the bile duct from the gall bladder to the small intestine, the pressure builds up and leads to painful inflamation. . . hence the intensifying pressure felt in the chest radiating to the back and shoulder.

Rush lost a lot of weight recently and looks great! A drastic weight transformation can take it’s toll on the body. As the body metabolizes fat during prolonged fasting and rapid weight loss—such as “crash diets”—the liver secretes extra cholesterol into bile, which can cause gallstones. In addition, the gallbladder does not empty properly. And as people age, the body tends to secrete more cholesterol into bile.

Been there . . .done that. Cholecystitis is not a pleasant sensation and can be frightening.

All the best to Rush with best wishes for a healthy, prosperous new year.

harry on January 2, 2010 at 8:10 PM

Rush is not employed by a company based in Hawaii. The care he recieved is not governed by employee provided health benefits.

I don’t know you well enough to judge whether this (conflation of two unrelated things) is an honest mistake on your part, or just proof of density.

Hey Harry,

Here’s a nice easy link for state income tax comparisons: http://retirementliving.com/RLstate1.html

You might note that the progressive rate will go as high as 11% for ’09. I would imagine that tourists and sales, hotel and other related taxes have an impact, as well as non-resident property owners. Also the impact of the military personnel being taxed but not in ‘the system’ would have an effect as well.

Hmm, wonder what the tourist and military to resident ratio is in, say, Iowa…

What is law, state-by-state, is easy enough to relate. What is harder to discern is the impact of statutory disparities within multi-state regions and the applicability of uniform regulation in dissimilar -by demographics/geography/industry- regions.

I highly doubt that Hawaii’s subsidized-by-non-participant system is sustainable elsewhere… except of course, in minds of good Germans everywhere.

Doorgunner on January 2, 2010 at 8:37 PM

Harry, do you live in Hawaii? If so, can you tell me what happened to the Hawaiian economy when the Hawaiian healthcare law came into effect?

How is it subsidized? Did they have to raise taxes or demand more money from the federal government? What about lawsuit reform? Any doctors leave the state or have were any hospitals shut down?

In short, how much money is coming out of my pocket in order for Hawaiians to have cheap healthcare?

What part that Hawaii has Mandated Health Insurance? It’s the law, just like the law that’s about to be passed. That’s the system that Rush praised. Hawaii has mandated employer-provided health care since 1974. Where is your evidence that I’m lying?

And yes I’m aware of the recession going on; you, however, seem to be willfully ignorant. The rest of America doesn’t really have a boom-or-bust tourist trad to base socialist pipe dreams on.

And could you remind me again how Rush “loved him some Hawaian health-care”?

You continue to conflate “health coverage laws” (which Hawaii has) with “the care that Rush recieved.”

You did not provide evidence; you simply restated your conflated, confused, mistaken argument; as if it proved your first statement of it.

Again, and again, you were invited to prove your original point.

You still have not.

You came up empty on reason, logic, facts, and supporting sources.

Your argument has no foundation; your posts no purpose.

harry on January 2, 2010 at 9:04 PM

Every state has specifications for the health insurance sold within their borders, in some states it is part of the problem. But the health care available through out the U.S. is pretty much the same and although states restrict the sale of certain insurance most hospitals and doctors except all insurances held by most patients. And cash is always golden. Massachusetts, Tennessee and Maine has all tried “universal” single payer health care and it has not worked.

Wait! I’ve got it! We’ve got to attract more, millions more, Undie-Bombers and -stay with me here- somehow convince them somehow to go ahead and land and spend few bucks at the airport concessions…

Also, Rush pays for his medical even though he has insurance. Why? Because he can get more of thismoney back and not be screwed over as much via the insurance. Get the idea?

So.. are you going to be a man? Or a little boy which you are showing you are?

———

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him. He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365. His meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this He pays nothing and nothing is required of him. He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than He needs, but He is not required to do any upkeep. If He makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.

He receives these accommodations absolutely FREE. He is living like a King, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head:

You see to be a troll I’d have to be saying something that was trollish.

All I’ve said is the truth. All of the stuff I’ve said can be looked up and verified.

If you don’t like it, take it up with Rush.

BTW Did I mention that he loved the healthcare system in Hawaii.

Thanks for proving my point, sport.

We both have reputations here; I’ll keep mine, thanks.

Thank gawd the doctors were able to pull that 10 lbs ham sandwhich out of that pig’s face.

BTW, the same surgical would probably be able to remove your head from you (beep).

I’m glad Rush is ok!

Who’s the hottie with him at the end of the video?

Glad Rush is OK….

Rush’s Cardiologist, Dr. Magno, has a beautiful smile and appears to have a good relationship with El Rushbo. I am glad he got the best care. She seems really nice…:)

Well, I hope is doc is right. Rush is a smart man and stopped when he felt trouble. I’d feel better if someone from Hopkins cleared him though. Just personal preference.

Thank God.

Makes you wonder what kind of care high profile government critics would get under Obamacare doesn’t it?

Who wants to like in a country where your healthcare is determined by who you know or what you say about the powers that be? Seems to me America was founded to specifically reject that sort of system. A feudal system where the local Lord determines your quality of life and your beliefs…. America is dying one Congressional vote at a time.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head:
my dog is a Democrat !!

I take it that means he’s been neutered, as well?

Random Numbers (Brian Epps) on January 3, 2010 at 12:23 AM

The lefts hatred of Rush is amusing. He is not an elected official, he does not change policy, he can be silenced with a click of the keyboard, or a turn of the channel….yet congress critters that are stealing, mocking and fooling the left are given wide berth….are all democrats infantile and removed from reality?

nondhimmie on January 3, 2010 at 7:37 AM

To be honest, he probably just slept on his arm wrong. I sleep on my left side all the time and sometimes wake up with a bad cramp. I’m happy to know we’ll have Rush around for sometime still.

AbaddonsReign on January 3, 2010 at 7:51 AM

Ted is dead. Let him RIP BIH.

Fixed.

Walkinboss observation was interesting. If the President had taken time out of his busy floging time he could probably received some tips on how to improve his floging and turn it into what its is supposed to be golf.

Let’s look at the big picture. Rush stayed at a local resort The President at an expensive estate that inconvenienced an entire swank neighborhood.

Rush had the sense to call 911 for symptoms of a heart attack (meaning he has a heart. 911 called the President to tell him a friends kid had a boo-boo, so he stopped to world to get back to his bunker to make sure the press saw his compassion, then stopped the world to get back to his golfing.

The day after Christmas the President held a press conference to tell us what we already knew and that he has appointed a group (composed of people that should have prevented the failed attack in the first place) to look into the problem and how to fix it, while Rush held a press conference to thank the many who helped him through his incident and reminded the world of the importance of knowing the signs of an attack and taking proper steps to prevent it from becoming fatal.

Rush cut his hospital vacation to return to work, the President returned to Comedy Central to see if those he appointed to look into the Christmas Day failed attempt if they had found anything. I bet dollars to donuts, sorry gambling in Hawaii is illegal, the report will tell us that a Middle Eastern male, sets off flags, bought his ticket with cash, sets off flags, a week before departure, bough a round trip ticket because a one way ticket sets off flags, and traveled without any luggage, sets off flags, and had ties with terrorists and should have been on a watch list, sets off flags, that Schiphol Airport had body scanners in place and working, but political correctness did not allow those traveling to U.S. or were American citizens to be scanned. Enough said, I think the point is made.

Have a great New Year and ‘Let U.S. Win in Ten’.

Rush! Glad to see your ok and will be returning to continue the fight against socialism! I had hoped you would get a chance to do some real digging while in Hawaii and try to get us a good copy of the Obama birth certificate. Would answer a lot of questions if we could just see it! At any rate, you keep up the good fight and lets give these liberals some hell!

SgtRed on January 3, 2010 at 10:09 AM

I just realized that the pain Rush felt in his heart was probably just heartbreak over the loss of freedom in our country. I feel that same feeling everytime I realize that our government doesn’t care about our people and what we want. It is heart breaking to see our country failing.

SgtRed on January 3, 2010 at 10:19 AM

God answers prayer! Thank You, Lord and Thank You for Rush!

Look, Limbaugh is a neocon plain and simple. But sometimes he hits things out of the park.

But there is another con he is…ICON. Of radio, broadcasting, etc. He is a pioneer.
