RUSH LIMBAUGH: Now before we go to the audio sound bites, let me give you a quick overview, just a quick review of the hearings today, folks, with Kathleen Sebelius. I didn’t hear it all. It’s been on here. I didn’t turn the audio on through all of it, ’cause it’s a distraction. But what I saw alarmed me a little bit. It didn’t seem to me that the Republicans were organized or prepared and the Democrats are.

They’re constantly, always moving their agenda forward. They’re always moving their ideology forward. They always have a plan; they’re always on the attack. We’ve got a gold mine here, and we’re not using it. I didn’t hear a question — and there could have been one asked. I didn’t hear a question about any no-bid contracts. I didn’t hear any Republican say, “Look, if you guys can’t even launch the website, if you guys can’t even get a website up and running, how in the world you gonna run one-sixth of the US economy?”

I didn't hear any question like that. Did you, Snerdley? I didn't hear any ideological questions whatsoever. I didn't hear anything. In fact, one Republican I heard (I don't remember his name) said, "My constituents want to be able to buy insurance, and you're making it impossible." What are you saying, bud? Your constituents do not want them! He was from Texas. I saw that. "My constituents want to be able to buy health insurance and they want to be able to go to your website to do it."

No, they don't want to go to this website. What is this guy talking about? It's very frustrating for me. Sebelius is clearly being hung out to dry here. She is clearly the fall girl. She's gonna survive. Obama's not gonna get rid of her. But she's clearly the punching bag. She was sent out there today to absorb every bit of damage. She's a sponge. She's supposed to soak it up and smile and take it. Even at that, she mighta damaged herself, but I don't know that the Republicans did much damage.

It's like they're afraid to. It's like there's still a fear of going after Obama, or going after Sebelius, just from the consultant level of the party or whoever's running the Republican Party. There seems to be some instruction that's gone out from on high to back off. "Don't even get close to making it look like it's personal! Don't be mean!" I'm at a loss. Well, no. I'm not at a loss to understand it. I know exactly what's going on. There is no Republican ideology is what is going on.

There is no Republican strategy. There is no ideology. Now, it may well be that there is a strategy. It could well be that whoever came up with this idea that, "Well, this thing's in the middle of the imploding. Just back out and let it." Maybe that's the instruction that's gone out. "You know, don't be mean, don't be critical, 'cause this thing's imploding itself, and it'll go down," and that's such a big mistake. Because with every new day of chaos, Obama and the Democrats are getting closer to what they want, which is single payer. (via Daily Rushbo)

That's the strategy, Rush.  It seems to me the GOP members did a pretty good job of ripping Sebelius.

Rush wants blood.  You can pontificate from on high like that when you're dragging down $40 mil a year.

Tune in to MSNBS some time when Al Sharleton is on the air.  He is perfectly capable of stirring up a full blown race riot in protest of anything the Republicans say or do, and any criticism of Obama is immediately spun as racist.

Nothing.  But he doesn't have to run for office.  He can beat up on Sebelius all he wants on his radio show;  Congressmen have to be a bit more discrete.

In fact, the MSM thinks the GOP reps yesterday were TOO HARD on Sebelius.

I haven't listened to Rush since he started pimping his book.  It's ALL he talks about.

It will not stay imploded.

It will be transformed into single payer.

The idea of government provided health care is now established in this country.  It will not be revoked, ever.  The argument now will just be the method and who are the best technocrats or apparatchiks to run it.  Socialism is the law of the land...until it cannot be supported any longer by the emaciated economy.

Nothing




Yet you complain about Rush making money, Beck making money, Palin making  money, Cruz making money...  it does make it seem you at least have some issues with Consetvatives making money.
