Rush Limbaugh: The World Laughs at His 100 Days of Failure

posted at 9:50 pm on April 22, 2009 by

Did you hear Janet Napolitano the other day?  Janet Napolitano said the 9/11 hijackers actually got into our country through Canada.  So now the Canadians are up in arms and the National Post in Canada today has a piece asking how in the hell did this woman get her job?  Earlier this week she says it’s not a crime to illegally enter the country, cross the border, when it is.  She’s a ditz.  She’s a total hick, hack, left-wing kook that is now in charge of Homeland Security — and she’s there because who chose her?  Obama!  I mean, you Obama people cannot have it both ways.  You cannot say this guy is something brand-new and fresh like we’ve never had before, and he’s so smart, and he’s so in control, he’s so in touch.  And then say he has no clue what’s going on in his own administration, or that he’s being pressured and he’s buckling to pressure.  What was funny about the interrogation memo flip-flop was when he talked about allowing Holder… If this happens — we keep talking about overreaching. If this happens, if Eric Holder — and he could very well do this — does instigate investigations or let Conyers do it over in the House or somebody start investigating former Bush administration officials, if they subpoena them, and if these guys have to go out and get lawyers, let me tell you something. If this happens, they don’t care whether they get a conviction or not. It won’t be about that.  

Finals week, Barack Obama approaching a hundred days.  Now, they say this has been a historically productive 100 days.  I have just put a list here together in no particular order, just off the top of my head, of the things in this administration that have stood out to me since it began.  Admiral Blair — this is all over the New York Times today — Admiral Blair admitting the CIA received high value, lifesaving information from terrorists, while President Obama is condemning the same interrogations as immoral and counterproductive.  President Obama is throwing and has thrown grand White House parties with Kobe beef, a hundred bucks a pound, while telling the nation to cut back in order to survive the greatest economic downturn supposedly since the Great Depression, bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia, listening patiently and respectfully while a two-bit dictator lectures Obama — it was Daniel Ortega — with false charges for 50 minutes about the criminal country he leads, and Obama doesn’t say one word to object, one word in disagreement, does not stand up for his country at one point during the Summit of the Americas.

He has run around the world and apologized for the greatest, the most compassionate, the most innovative and freedom-loving country in world history.  Now we’ve got Fidel Castro setting Obama straight about how Cuba handles political prisoners and its economy.  Fidel Castro, one of Obama’s idols, calling him superficial.  We had the nomination of tax cheats to his cabinet, including the man who oversees the IRS, five tax cheats in the Obama administration.  We have Obama’s joke of a press spokesman, who makes a complete idiot of himself on a daily basis.  He sends back a symbol of freedom, that bust of Sir Winston Churchill to Great Britain just after moving into the White House.  He wants nothing to do with it.  He did of his own volition.  They said you can keep it.  He said no, we don’t want it here.  They said put it in a different room in the White House. We don’t want it here, and sent it back to the British embassy.  It was given to us, President Bush, after 9/11, by the Brits.  He insulted the prime minister of England, the queen of England, with embarrassing, thoughtless gifts.  We have the French president Sarkozy ridiculing Obama’s messianic complex, inviting him to walk on water at Normandy beach.  We have Iran taking a hostage, an American journalist, as Obama promises better relations.  We have North Korea humiliating Obama with their missile launch.  We have Obama putting the country in debt for generations to come while promising fiscal responsibility, offering up laughable budget cuts, banning lobbyists from his administration, while appointing them left and right. Openly lying that Caterpillar would hire up with the passage of his stimulus bill, then watching while that company lays off thousands after the stimulus bill passes.  He pledges to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay where I have a thriving merchandise business.  But then he keeps it open with no plan for its future.  Proclaiming total transparency, while keeping secret who got the TARP funds, when, where, why. Being incapable of communicating without a teleprompter, while the press declares him a Reaganesque, Great Communicator.  

He attacks a private citizen broadcaster from the White House as part of an orchestrated plan to distract the country from legislation and policies we don’t want, which thus touched off a political firestorm, all of this while claiming to be a unifier.  He makes a ham-handed attempt to nationalize the banks preventing financial institutions from paying back TARP money they don’t need or want.  We got a column today in the Wall Street Journal by Holman Jenkins that General Motors is a debacle; it is an absolute debacle and mess, and soon Wall Street is going to be the same thing.  He has made bad situations worse with car manufacturers, and the worst is yet to come.  He has sparked hundreds of protests involving hundreds of thousands of Americans at tea parties regarding irresponsible government spending while his Homeland Security chief labels peacefully demonstrating Americans and veterans as security risks.  Now, that’s just the things I could think up the top of my head.  Oh, yeah, moving the census over to the Commerce department to politicize that.  I mean, this administration has been one part joke, one part unbelievable, and many parts scary.  Because while all this has gone on, this man is reported upon and reported to be the best president we’ve ever had, a shining light, a beacon, historical figure.  

We have a sycophantic mainstream media in this country.  How about the New York Times.  The New York Times, $34 million in cash.  The New York Times is in debt $1.3 billion.  By the way, this is cool, folks.  The New York Times’ corporate president and CEO, Janet Robinson, received a compensation package valued at $5.58 million last year while the publisher of the New York Times, Arthur Sulzberger Jr. received a total of $2.4 million while this company is losing its shirt.  Does that not sound a little bit like Wall Street?  Does this not sound like excessive bonuses?  Does this sound like CEOs paying them when the performance of their company is in the sewer?  And haven’t we demonized private sector CEOs for this very thing?  Oh, and that is another one: making enemies out of people in the private sector and ginning up protests by his ACORN buddies at the homes of AIG executives, fomenting class hatred and rivalry.

What an incredible record of ineptitude in only 100 days!

It’s imperative that we continue to chronicle The One’s “achievements” because Americans have notoriously short memories.

And I thought 4 years of Jimmah was a long sentence…

Great rant, Keemo!

jimmy the notable on April 23, 2009 at 3:13 AM

Is this just a copy/paste from Rush Limbaugh’s site or did you write this?

And did Sarkozy really invite Obama to walk on water at Normandy? That’d be amazing if he did.

amkun on April 23, 2009 at 4:51 AM

Nobody calls it like Rush. Janet Napolitano must go. This country’s security is in jeopardy under her watch–our enemies are paying close attention–and they aren’t white-wing “extremists”..LOL!

This is a portion of a segment taken from Rush’s show yesterday. The entire segment was way too long to post. Nobody says it better than Rush…

Keemo on April 23, 2009 at 7:31 AM

way to go, keemo. keep hitting.

kelley in virginia on April 23, 2009 at 9:07 AM

Awesome job Keemo!

And all 20 million listeners to the El Rushbo in one voice say, “Amen brother, AMEN!”

I do not know for sure whether or not it is true, but it was all over the place that Sarkozy did ask Mr. Floofy Pants to go to Normandy while in France, and to place a wreath at one of the graves. Apparently Zero refused. It was said Sarkozy was gassed and could not believe an American President would not go to Normandy. Sarkozy apparently said something in shocked tones about the dead being Obama’s countrymen, sacrifices of lives, patriotism, so much given for France and the world, etc. and it is the thing done by most Presidents. Of course none of this could be true because OUR press did not report the story.

When Merkle is refusing a second bailout, and Sarkozy is calling The Man-Child out in a way we all cheer; you know we have entered the third dimension! God Save Us!

I wish I had mad video editing skills to make a “One Hundred Mistakes in One Hundred Days” vid (which he seems to be approaching that quota).

Shouldn’t you include a link, and give credit and all that? Keep Michelle out of trouble?

Tanya on April 23, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Oh, Keemo….I dont think America is listening.

Can’t link to this type material due to membership issues. In order to open the link, membership to Rush 24/7 is necessary. Trust me, Rush doesn’t mind having his brilliance spread to as many minds as possible.

Keemo on April 23, 2009 at 5:59 PM

What we, as Conservatives should remember is that Obama maintains very high approval ratings. High enough to keep him in power. All he has to do is maintain the charade for another 18 months. If he can hold on to the House and Senate then, I fear, we’re finished.

All Rush, the Repubs and Conservatives want to do is point the finger at the numerous imperfections of the dem’s. Spending zero time getting their own dysfuntional house in order. There are reasons why Repub’s lost huge ground on both 11/7/06 and 11/4/08. Middle America wants to move rightward. The GOP has ignored and dis’d them. Darvin Dowdy

Darvin Dowdy on April 24, 2009 at 7:43 AM

Very good assessment Darvin. I’m not holding out much hope for the GOP to right it’s ship by 2010. I’m afraid this battle is left up to the citizens. Either we the people, enforce our will over all politicians, or we slide off the cliff along with DC. All incumbents should face really tough scrutiny with the upcoming elections, no matter if they have a (R) or a (D) in front of their name.

The citizens must engage!

Keemo on April 24, 2009 at 8:30 AM

keemo shame on you for telling the truth.the way obamas going he will give you plenty to write about.stock up on tums the next 100 days will make you even sicker.keep up the good fight
