For John, BLUF: Rush says both Republicans and Democrats are responsible for the deficit/debt problem. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is OpEd Writer Charlie Spiering, writing in The Washington Examiner, about Rush Limbaugh saying, on Thursday, "For the first time I am ashamed of my country". I find that an interesting reversal on the First Lady's line from four years ago.
The argument of Mr Spiering is that perhaps Rush Limbaugh has relaunched the "Tea Party" movement.
Why? Limbaugh explained that both political parties in Washington refused to stop spending and used alarmist scare tactics every time anyone proposed cuts to government programs.So, today Rush Limbaugh spent the first hour this Friday not talking about this issue. In the second hour he talks about it. In doing this he distinguishes between ignorant and stupid. He says that the voters aren't stupid, but they are ignorant. In his words, "low information voters". So, stop reading and tune in Rush. Hat tip to the Instapundit.
"To be watching all of this, to have my intelligence – all of us – to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it is….it just makes me ashamed," Limbaugh explained, "Seriously man, here we get worked up over 44 billion dollars – that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year."
