Obama: 153 Bridges Will Collapse September 15, 2011


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: So I'm walking through the library last night, the television set's on, I had it on for other people. I don't watch it. I had it on. One thing there's no football on, so why have it on? Anyway, Damages hadn't started yet, so no reason to have it on. And I walked by and I hear Obama, I'm not even looking at the screen, I hear Obama say this and I stopped dead in my tracks and I almost started trying to pull my hair out. I said, "Who in the world is gonna believe this?"

OBAMA: There are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls? (applause)

RUSH: When did the last one fall? What was the first stimulus for? What was the first trillion dollars for to fix all these bridges, 153 structurally deficient bridges. He's admitting that during his reign, he hasn't done anything about any of these deficient bridges. You've got this little bill he's waving around. He hasn't filed a bill. There is no jobs bill of Obama's that has been filed in Congress. Louie Gohmert filed his own two-page job bill, and it's called the American Jobs Act. They stole little Barry's title, stole his name, stole the name of his bill. Little Barry's out there waving this thing around as though there are millions of jobs in that 155-page thing he's waving around. And Gallup, I just saw this, Gallup's got a poll result apparently out there that a majority of Americans want the jobs bill passed. Sorry, majority of Americans, it isn't gonna be passed. There's no intention for this thing to pass in all or in part, there's no way.

How many Democrat senators are up for reelection in 2012? That's the main reason it's not gonna be passed. Well, it's over with 20. There are a lot of Democrat senators up for reelection in 2012. There's no way this jobs bill is even gonna get a vote in the Senate. There's no way Dingy Harry is gonna subject his people, not after what happened in New York 9, not after what happened in New Jersey and what happened in Virginia and Scott Brown's election in Massachusetts.

Hi, folks. How are you? Rush Limbaugh. I think, therefore I am here, behind the Golden EIB Microphone. Our telephone number if you want to be on the program is 800-282-2882. The e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.

Don't worry about looking up the exact number, Snerdley. It's not that big a deal. I just heard this, "Why wait 'til another bridge fails?" He's in Raleigh, North Carolina, yesterday with this, and Bite Me is in North Carolina today. So those people got two days of traffic tie-ups.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So what we have here: Here we have a guy who said that we're gonna get rid of politics as usual, gonna be unified -- all of the utopian stuff. And what do we get? Nothing but a continuing of the usual politics of fear, crisis, and panic. So now Obama says there are 153 bridges out there on the verge of collapse. Once again, grab audio sound bite number seven. Listen to this one more time, folks.

OBAMA: There are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here on or around the Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls? (applause)

RUSH: People are cheering this! Why would we have to wait for another bridge to fall? The question is: Why didn't you fix these bridges with the first trillion dollars that you spent? But more importantly than that -- more importantly than that -- if there are bridges about to fall down, shouldn't the Secretary of Transportation shut them down? If there are 153 bridges...? Did he say here on the verge of collapse? No. Hundred fifty-three "structurally deficient bridges" need to be repaired. Where? We need to be told where these 153 bridges are, because if he doesn't tell us, then the regime -- Obama -- is holding drivers hostage. He's letting us drive over 153 bridges that could apparently fail and people could plummet to their deaths at any moment.

Name the bridges! You remember how they demanded specifics from Bush and Tom Ridge on terror threats 'cause they accused those two guys of politicizing terror threats? Well, here. The Bamster says he knows of 153 bridges that could fall down at any moment, and four of them are "near the Beltline in North Carolina," four of them. name 'em so that people can avoid them. It is his job to shut them down, not hold their repairs hostage to passing his little tax bill. Do you understand? If he's serious, 153 bridges are structurally deficient, and rather than fix 'em, he's holding the repair hostage and endangering the lives of people that drive on these bridges just so he can get his nonexistent bill passed?

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: How do we think we can fix 153 bridges Obama says are at risk when after ten years we still haven't rebuilt the World Trade Center?
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Steve in Bozeman, Montana. I'm glad you called, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Hey, Rush. I was just gonna say, shouldn't the question that Obama asked be: Why should we let the economy collapse before we fixed it?

RUSH: Yeah, like the bridges. Why do the bridges have to collapse before we fix 'em?

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: Okay. Why does the economy have to collapse before we fix that?

CALLER: Yup.

RUSH: Exactly right. If anybody's being held hostage here, it's us. And, look, I know it sounds funny, but I'm not trying to be funny. I'm dead serious. Folks, yesterday in North Carolina the president of the United States said that there are 153 "structurally deficient bridges" in this country and that there are four of them nearby where he was speaking, North Carolina. Yet he allows people to continue to drive over those bridges. He doesn't tell his secretary of transportation to shut 'em down, he doesn't identify them. He waves that piece of paper around and says, "Only if this is passed will those bridges get fixed."

One hundred fifty-three bridges he says structurally deficient need to be repaired, and he wants us to believe it's gonna happen immediately if we pass that little piece of paper he's waving around -- and yet it's ten years after 9/11 we still haven't we built the World Trade Center. Did Obama arrive over any of those bridges? I mean, part of his route he had to be driven in The Beast, his Cadillac limo. He takes Air Force One to the closest airport, then drives to where he's going. Did he happen to cross one of those bridges? Did he have to go over one of those bridges that are structurally deficient? I doubt it if he knows they're structurally deficient. He's not gonna take a motorcade of that weight over a structurally deficient bridge. If he did, we need know about it. If the Secret Service let Obama drive over one of those deficient bridges then it must be safe for the rest of us. It must not be in that bad a shape.

Tim Geithner says the economy is in the early stage of crisis. No kidding!

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: No, The Beast is Obama's limousine. It was a legitimate question, folks. You've got 153 bridges, structurally deficient, could fall down at any moment -- four of them in North Carolina near where Obama was. Did The Beast cross any of them? The Beast weighs eight tons -- without Michelle in it! Eight tons, 16,000 pounds. Did they drive that thing and the rest of the motorcade over one of those four bridges?
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here's Denny in Dayton, Ohio. Denny, hi. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Welcome.

CALLER: I appreciate that. Hey, caught my ear when Obama used the term "structurally deficient" because that is a term in transportation parlance which means it has nothing to do with a bridge actually being ready to fall down necessarily. In most cases it has to do with a bridge that might be a two-lane bridge, but due to increased traffic and lack of breakdown lanes and stuff it needs to be a four-lane bridge or a four-lane bridge needs to be an eight lane bridge and so on.

RUSH: Is that right? That's what "structurally deficient" means? Structurally deficient means it is not big enough to handle the load?

CALLER: It could be if it is a structural weakness but just simply means no longer meets the design need; and one of the bridges he would be talking about in North Carolina -- I'm very familiar with -- is the Herbert Bonner Bridge to Hatteras Island. Here's why they don't get replaced. The funding has been fully in place before he was president, possibly before he was even in the Senate. The bridges has been blocked for almost 20 years by environmentalists.

RUSH: Yeah?

CALLER: That's why the bridges don't get built. It's ranked I think a three out of 100, and the timeline is unbelievable. The state of North Carolina has been trying, and the environmentalists -- if you can believe this, it's a three-and-a-half-mile-long bridge, and the environmentalists would like to replace it with a 17-and-a-half-mile long bridge to go around the kelp beds.

RUSH: It's a three-and-a-half-mile-long bridge, and the wackos want to replace it with a 17-and-a-half-mile long bridge?

CALLER: Correct. I could give you a website if you want to nail 'em down but it has the information if anybody wants to look it up.

RUSH: We'll find it.

CALLER: You'll try it? Let's see, ReplaceTheBridgeNow.com. It's pretty simple.

RUSH: ReplaceTheBridgeNow.com.

CALLER: ReplaceTheBridgeNow.com.

RUSH: Well, this is quite interesting. Still -- still -- it's all smoke and mirrors, because when you boil it all down you can talk about the environmentalist wackos, local officials, local politicians. As in the case of New Orleans, as in the case of New Orleans and the levees. They didn't use the money to shore up the levees and fix the levees. They use the money for "social justice" or other such nebulous terms, is what they mean.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Folks, I'll tell you, Obama is going crazy with this bridge nonsense. Get this. Obama's next campaign swing, jobs pitch, is going to be at the Brent Spence Bridge linking Ohio and Kentucky, states represented by Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Has a going to be at the Brent Spence Bridge. That's his next campaign swing.

Barry Goes Looking for Love, But Doesn't Get Any from Carville
If you love us, Mr. President...
"So the president says, 'If you love me, pass this bill.' Wrongo, ladies and gentlemen. That's not the correct way to say this: 'If you love me, let me go,' Olivia Newton-John back in the Symbionese Liberation Army days, 1972." -Rush

Barry Goes Looking for Love, But Doesn't Get Any from Carville September 15, 2011

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: James Carville has a column at CNN.com. There isn't any audio of this because it's written, but Obama has Carville panicking out there. Twenty-one Democrats are up for reelection in 2012, plus the two independents, Lieberman and Bernie Sanders. (interruption) Oh, yeah, he calls himself that, right, but he's a socialist.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So James Carville's out there saying, "People often ask me what advice I would give the White House about various things. Today I was mulling over election results from New York and Nevada while thinking about that very question. What should the White House do now? One word came to mind: Panic. We are far past sending out talking points. Do not attempt to dumb it down. We cannot stand any more explanations. Have you talked to any Democratic senators lately? I have. It's pretty damn clear they are not happy campers.

"This is what I would say to President Barack Obama: The time has come to demand a plan of action that requires a complete change from the direction you are headed. I don't know how else to break this down. Simply put: Fire somebody. No -- fire a lot of people. This may be news to you but this is not going well. For precedent, see Russian Army 64th division at Stalingrad. There were enough deaths at Stalingrad to make the entire tea party collectively orgasm." "If you love me help me pass the bill," Obama says. Here, grab that bite. That is number six. Here is Obama, this is pathetic.

OBAMA: If you love me you gotta help me pass this bill. If you love me, you gotta help me pass this bill. It starts with your help.

RUSH: If you love me? You have the president of the United States going out there, "If you love me, you gotta help me pass this bill." Hey, Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta lower our taxes. Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta help us be able to make our house payments so we don't have our homes foreclosed on. Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta stop spending federal money. Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta repeal your asinine health care bill. Mr. President, if you love us, you gotta get out of the way. What is this, if you love me, you gotta help me pass this bill? I guess he's doubting that people love him now, or he still is believing it, he's just gotta remind the people that love him what he's gotta do.

Back to Carville. "Mr. President, your hinge of fate must turn. Bill Clinton fired many people in 1994 and took a lot of heat for it. Reagan fired most of his campaign staff in 1980. Republicans historically fired their own Speaker, Newt Gingrich. Bush fired Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. For God's sake, why are we still looking at the same political and economic advisers that got us into this mess? It's not working. Furthermore, it's not going to work with the same team, the same strategy and the same excuses. I know economic analysts are smart -- some work 17-hour days. It's time to show them the exit. Wake up -- show us you are doing something."
And then Carville says, "Indict people. There are certain people in American finance who haven't been held responsible for utterly ruining the economic fabric of our country. Demand from the attorney general a clear status of the state of investigation concerning these extraordinary injustices imposed upon the American people. I know Attorney General Eric Holder is a close friend of yours, but if his explanations aren't good, fire him, too. Demand answers to why no one has been indicted. Mr. President, people are livid. Tell people that you, too, are angry and sickened by the irresponsible actions on Wall Street that caused so much suffering. Do not accept excuses. Demand action now.

"Make a case like a Democrat. While we are going along with the Republican austerity garbage, who is making the case against it? It's not the Democrats! We are allowing the over-educated, over-explanatory bureaucrat by the name of (Congressional Budget Office director Douglas) Elmendorf do all the talking. Do not let him make your case. Let us make your case. Is it any wonder that we were doing better in the middle of the stimulus-spending period than we are doing with the austerity program?" And he goes on. There's one more paragraph.

I'm gonna have to read it. Carville says they're in sheer panic out there. In the Drive-By Media they're in panic over what happened in New York 9 and over the Jewish vote. They're trying to... You know, they got one of these circle things going on where they're trying to comfort each other and tell each other they really haven't lost the Jewish vote. "This a bunch of Orthodox Jews. It doesn't count. This doesn't mean anything in a general election nationwide in 2012." That may be true, by the way. I, frankly, being honest with you, folks, I'll be stunned if Obama doesn't get 70, 80% of the Jewish vote like he always does. (interruption)

Well, I would love to be stunned, Snerdley, but I'm just telling you. It is bad out there, and it is getting worse out there. So here, look at Carville's solution: Criminalize the opposition, indict somebody. Mr. Carville, I hate to tell you, but some of Obama's best friends are on Wall Street. It's called crony capitalism. Some of his best friends are CEOs of the biggest American corporations. You want to start indictin' people, the people to indict are in the regime. You know, Carville... I read this piece, and I'm thinking, "Okay, he's sitting down there with Mary Matalin in New Orleans and their kids, and during his private time when Mary and the kids have gone to bed and James is sitting there, may be sipping on the Maker's Mark, probably asking himself constantly, 'What would Stalin do?'"

And after asking himself, "What would Stalin do?" over and over again, he finally sits down, he writes this piece, fire people, indict people. If you love me. (laughing) Who had that, Stephen Stills in the 1960s, early seventies, "Love the one you're with! Love the one you're with! Doo doo doot doo doo doo doot," and Stevie Wonder, "If you really love me..." Yeah, that's nice. Yeah. Mr. President, if you really love us (chuckles), we want to see you in the rearview mirror. (interruption) No, no, that was Sally Field. Sally Field (impression): "You love me! You really love me!" When she got her Oscar. "You love me! You really love me!" Oh, yeah, that's stood the test of time. Obama's not yet surprised at it; he's just reminding his followers, "Hey, look, if you love me, you'll help me pass this bill." There is no bill!
BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So the president says, "If you love me, pass this bill!" Wrongo, ladies and gentlemen. That's not the correct way to say this. Perhaps best portrayed vocally here by Olivia Newton-John back in the Symbionese Liberation Army days, 1972. "If you love me, let me go." (playing of song)

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN: You came when I was happy in your sunshine.

RUSH: This fits so well!

ON-J: I grew to love you more each passing day.

RUSH: Yeah, for the first six months or so.

ON-J: Before too long I built my world around you.

RUSH: Yeah. Too many people did.

ON-J: And I prayed you'd love enough of me to stay.

RUSH: Yeah. But...

ON-J: If you love me let me know. If you don't then let me go. I can't take another minute of a day without you in it. If you love me let it be. If you don't then set me free. Take the chains away that keep me loving yoooou.

RUSH: That's the song that fits, folks, Olivia Newton-John here. This again from the Patty Hearst kidnap days. The Symbionese Liberation Army was big then.

ON-J: The arms that open wide to hold me closer.

RUSH: The Symbionese Liberation Army probably voted for Obama.

ON-J: The hands that run their fingers through my hair.

RUSH: It's actually a good song.

ON-J: The smile that says, "Hello, it's good to see you." Anytime I turn around to find you there.

RUSH: Yeah, but it was all phony!

ON-J: It's this and so much more that make me love you. What else can I do to make you see? You know you have whatever's mine to give you.

RUSH: Gosh, the lyrics here work so well.

ON-J: But a love affair for one can never be.

RUSH: Yeah. Never works out.

ON-J: If you love me let me know. If you don't then let me go. I can't take another minute. Of a day without you in it. If you love me let it be. If you don't then set me free. Take the chains away that keep me loving you. Take the chains away that keep me loving you loving yoooou.

RUSH: That's what every one of you ought to be saying to Obama. And for you program directors and EIB affiliates...

ON-J: God, take the chains away that keep me loving yoooou.

RUSH: I played the whole song 'cause I like it. I was a struggling young disk jockey star of the future in Pittsburgh in 1972, and I was fascinated by the whole Symbionese Liberation Army. Gordon Lightweight's Sundown was a song that popular at the same time that one was. But anyway... Lightfoot! Sorry, Lightfoot. Gordon Lightfoot. No, those lyrics fit perfectly from an original Obama voter: "If you love me, let me go." That's the real message. "If you love us, Mr. President, let us go. Turn us loose. Please, let us see you in the rearview mirror." If we really loved Obama, 9.1% unemployment wouldn't matter! If we really loved Obama, losing our homes wouldn't matter. The point is we don't have love Obama! We don't love you, Mr. President. This is the point.

  • That bridge IS getting federal funds. If it needs repair the 2 states should have been fixing it,they BOTH collect large amounts of money on gas taxes. Why would you need stimulus money to fix this bridge,the federal gas tax is $0.18 cents a gallon that is what that money is supposed to go to.
