Blitheringly stupid

Rush Limbaugh needs to untie the other half of his brain. The half he's using now is clearly dysfunctional:
Radio giant Rush Limbaugh says he’s “jazzed” about Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan to be his running mate, and he expects an instant economic recovery if the Republican ticket wins in November.

“I guarantee you, if Ryan and Romney win this election, you’re gonna see the stock market go through the roof,” Limbaugh said this afternoon. “You’re gonna see small businesses start to hire. It’s gonna happen so fast, you’re not gonna believe it, the moment it’s known that Obama’s out of office.”

Limbaugh, the top-rated voice of the political right in America, says a true conservative is finally on the presidential ticket.
So, if Romney and Ryan are elected, the machines that make up the bulk of the stock market trading are going to kick it up another notch? And who is this "true conservative"? It certainly isn't the guy with the voting record that belongs to Ryan (WI). Limbaugh is putting the Stupid in Stupid Party with this inane commentary. I'd be very interested to know precisely how Limbaugh thinks Romney and Ryan are going to make a 350 percent debt/GDP ratio disappear overnight.

The stock market is doing pretty well right now. Not that the stock market is a direct indicator of the economy. But to imply that the market is down is disingenuous.

This is the same cycle that gets repeated every 4 years. No matter what the republicans have done or not done to earn our votes, Limbaugh can be counted on to carry their water at election time. No wonder the GOP never changes. They know the sheeple to the right of center will end up voting for them anyway.

Rush is a Republican hack, no more no less. That was obvious as early as 1992, when President GHWBush was a "special guest" and Rush tossed him 'questions' worthy of Katie Curic. When he had the opportunity and platform to (rightly) roast the Republican nominee for acting like a Democrat, he played cheerleader. Not much has changed in the intervening years, I suspect, though that was the day I quit listening to him.

Blogger ajw308 August 13, 2012 4:52 PM  

I stopped listening to Rush the first few times he used the old "I only provide radio entertainment" line when he got called on some of the dumb things he says.

Sometimes I think a lot of people think the DJI is nothing more than an indicator of the public's confidence. People who don't know what wealth is or where money really comes from.

11B, in no way did Vox imply the market is down. In fact, just the opposite, since he seems to doubt that there is nobody who could kick it up a notch.

This brings up an interesting point. Many ordinary folks I talk with apparently seem to think that as long as the stock market is doing well they're not in any imminent economic danger. I guess many people think the stock market is a cause rather than a symptom of the problems.

Limbaugh is a superb communicator and is extremely knowledgable and persuasive regarding the neo-right. He's also one hell of an entrepreneur.

He has a reasonable grasp of the Founding Fathers' beliefs; however, he literally cannot connect the dots from the America that was to the U.S. that is. Few can and the cognitive dissonance required to make the transformation is painful and, as an added benefit to those who endure, quite literally makes one unable to communicate to those who've refused the red pill.

Limbaugh's last caller of the first hour was starting to school him on the financial crisis. Rush cut him off because in the blue pill world, it was caused solely by the bad dems shoving subprime mortgages down the banks' throats. That was a contributing factor I'm sure but leaves all the banker and R culpability off the table. He's an economic lightweight.

Anonymous JartStar August 13, 2012 5:05 PM  

I doubt even R/R can help create one, but if one were to define economic recovery as in the inflation of another bubble and a dramatic increase in price of equities, then I suppose there would be a “recovery”. They might probably have a better shot at it than Obama.

Regardless this election cycle should be very entertaining as R/R are serious candidates unlike the McCain/Palin joke we had 4 years ago. The Obama team won’t get to beat up on an old man and a spunky PTA mom.

The funny thing is, Rush has been distinctly...uncomfortable about supporting Romney the few times I've heard him recently. He is on his game when attacking Obama (and rightly so), but much more hesitant about openly endorsing Romney. He claims that this election is about getting rid of Obama, end of story. I do not recall any election where he has been so unenthusiastic about the GOP nominee and that alone is telling. Of course, it doesn't speak well for Rush if he truly does understand the problems with Romney yet won't talk about those problems on his show.

On the flip side, I expect there will be a spate of irrational exuberance if Romney wins. I also expect it to be short-lived since Romney doesn't recognize and won't address the structural problems with our economic system.

I cannot believe the sheer stupidity of Rush Limbaugh. How he can honestly say that either Willard Romney or Paul Ryan has anything in common with even the Buckley conservatism to which Limbaugh allegedly ascribes?

Rush Limbaugh is a highly paid entertainer. Good on him. I should be so blessed. However, like Gary North, Limbaugh is no debater. He has the power of the button to shut off another opinion. He cannot hold his own in a debate. Like North, he depends on people who only want to hear one point of view. I wish I could remember from what Sci/Fi book this came from but it went something like this: "why was I condemned to live in a democracy where every fool's vote counts the same as mine". Why indeed?

This is the big conspiracy theory out there - that small businesses aren't hiring because of Obama and/or his policies.

Small business is rigged to fail against big business. Corporate profits have literally never been higher, and it's largely because of 2 reasons:

a. The only group successful so far in controlling healthcare costs are huge corporations. End of story. No small business can escape the death-star like calamity of health-insurance cost for workers. Better workers who are at the top end of the desirability spectrum aren't going to leave corporate jobs for small business when small business cannot afford to offer reasonable health-insurance.

b. Every policy - especially GOP favored but just as many liberally contrived - put out by the government in the last 10 years has been either implicitly or explicitly pro-big business.

Nah, it's not willful ignorance on Rush's part. He cut that caller off bc he carries the water for the Repukes and the information didn't fit the script. He's been known to go off the script and rail about being tired of carrying the water for them for years and they always jerk ELRushbo back in line. Selling your soul to the Bush family has its price.

I remember back in the 90s when callers would call in regarding the NWO or any other taboo topic that didn't fall in line with the Dem/Rep paradigm. His response was to promptly cut off the caller and assure the listeners that HE'D looked into it and with an authoritative tone dismiss any and all suspicions. That " you can trust me" crap is always a huge red flag.

Antonio Vivaldi's music is a good thing; So is Rush Limbaugh.

Vivaldi's 1 Concert C major, allegro would not be considered on Rush's show as it is outside the mainstream of his thought process--even though it is Vivaldi's work.

Then, the classical period happens and Rush sticks with The Four Seasons.

That's not bad, but it does injustice to the depth, breadth, seriousness,and gaiety of Liberalism.

Poor Rush. I would have to say that Romney could have done a lot worse, T-Pawl, Portman (who?). Rush has not been a fan of Romney from the start, so this looks pretty good considering how bad Romney is (I'm getting the 'feel' of the McCain/Palin ticket - John was awful, but Palin was better). Relatively, anyway. Rush isn't educated economically at all. He's gradually been changing his toon on the economy over the last few years - his thing a few years ago was '...all the doom and gloom sayers...it never happens..." - lately he's been changing over to 'the economy is screwed!'... it's damning with faint praise with this crowd for sure. I'd be more critical, but with my crowd of relatives, most of whom are educated, they're by and large a bunch of economic ignoramouses and think it's just a rough spot! or the "politicians will figure it out"... The Ilk are pretty well informed, unfortunately most people are pretty hopeless in comparison.

Limpbutt is a highly paid Repuke hack.

The problem is the morons who listen to his rants and believe he is conservative. He is a Repugnant hack.

I quit taking anything he said seriously on Feb. 16, 2000.

Jorge the Younger Shrub, Juan McCrazy and Alan Keyes debated the night before live on the Larry King Show. Limpbutt admitted that day, that there had only been one conservative at that debate, and it wasn't Larry King. He then proceeded to rip Alan Keyes a new one for having the audacity to challenge Jorge the Younger Shrub for the presidency. Called Keyes crazy and insinuated that Keyes was dangerous to the nation.

I've considered Limpbutt nothing more than a Repuke hack from that day on.

Off topic, but I remember shortly after Obama came into power and Canada was about to come out with its budget. All seemed rosy. Next thing I know, after his visit, our finance minister Flaherty announces the need to major fiscal infusions, thus resulting in major deficits.

US companies are sitting on mountains of cash, and the biggest obstacle to their growth is the constant assault on them by the Obama administration. If Obama is removed and these companies think that all that cash can be put to better use now hiring employees and building their businesses, then the economy could take off.

Yeah but they won't stabilize it. They can't. The 350 percent debt/GDP ratio is more like the truth of it, when the net present cost of entitlements is figured in. The actual number may even be a lot higher.

A debt that high simply has to be defaulted on, and when it is, it's going to be ugly. So far, we've heard nothing from Romney or Obama but more of the same dull, empty rhetoric.

@ Conservative Teacher,

The offshore money will save us? And how will it all come flooding in when there will be no appreciable change in tax law. Romney is even saying there will be no change to the 2013 budget, I assume that means will have another $1.2T deficit? Will we have to get Dems to support Republican bills to raise the debt limit? How charming.

Even if some of the money comes in, companies are not going to invest and hire when the economy sucks. We are in for six or more big years of financial hell. All of the arbitrage, ponzy, HFT mechanisms are collapsing. As Bradbury put it, "Something wicked this way comes" and it will be regardless of Obama or do nothing Romney (and stop listening to pols with 10 year plans, they are science fiction.

From what you quoted, Vox, Limbaugh didn't say the debt-to-GDP of 3.5 would be fixed. All he said was the stock market would go through the roof and small businesses would start to hire. Who knows, the stock market is just insane enough to act that way. And it's remotely possible we'll see an uptick in small business hiring after an election. Limbaugh is pretty careful with what he says and is often hard to pin down as being just plain wrong.

I just take for granted that Rush is full of shite. I listen to him occasionally to keep up on the neo-cons but there's no doubt that any decent libertarian could take him down in a debate.

There two things that always force me to change the station though. First, he repeatedly goes on long winded rants about how great Apple products and yet claims he doesn't have any financial connections to Apple...BS he just gave them a crapload of free air time. Second, he is constantly putting on callers who shamelessly kiss his ass and then he lets them go on and on. No other radio host wastes so much listener time getting off to the praise of ignorant, star-struck callers.
