RUSH on contracting economy: If a Republican were in the White House they’d be doing impeachment hearings now

Rush noted on his show today that instead of the 4th quarter of 2012 growing at a rate of 1.1% like they told us, it actually shrank and Democrats are talking about how it’s the best looking contraction they’ve ever seen – and the media is just repeating that.

But if there were a Republican in the White House with this economy, he says there would be impeachment hearings going on already.

  • Sorry Rush, but if a Republican was in office, he would have been tried and convicted of treason by now and sitting in a cell somewhere wearing pink underwear.

    • deeme

      You beat me to it..What else would you call passing out weapons to our enemies, passing out weapons to Drug Cartels and disarming the law abiding citizens..Somebody wants a once great nation gone..

  • If a Republican were in office headline news everywhere would be about the Great Recession!

  • TickedWhiteDude

    Hey Rush….Do us all a favor and make a big loud call for impeachment.Let’s get this ball rolling. I think Obama should be locked up in the same place he promised to close 4 years ago.

    • sjmom

      Nah, too much freedom there.

      • Orangeone

        My thoughts too, he needs to be in the dark with unknown direction so he can’t pray to mecca

  • Joe


    Please start pounding the drum – louder and louder

    • Orangeone

      What happened Joe, ABinC beat you out of the gate!

  • TexasPGRRider

    Cloward-Piven strategy is alive and well, pressing Full Steam Ahead seeking virtual collapse of our economy…THIS my friends, is and always has been, one of B.O.`s goals….

  • With all due respect to Rush, we have to start addressing the debate as being one of not so much the D’s vs. the R’s, but the D’s and R’s vs. Us, We-the-People.

    I would like to see him take on the GOP more. Just my opinion. Who agrees?

    • Joe

      I agree –

    • marketcomp

      I agree Isabel! I ask myself, what does the GOP stand for? They’ve given up on immigration,many support legalizing illegal drugs, they gave up on defining marriage between one man and one women, many are suppoting gun control, they’ve given up on tax decreases, and always always in favor of compromise and these are just a few. I don’t think Rush is completely on board with the GOPe but he sure sounded like it yesterday with the Rubio interview.

      • cabensg

        Rush tried to show Rubio the error of his ways but Rubio didn’t listen. I saw no agreement from Rush in fact I think the reason Rush had him on was to point out what he knew would happen if Rubio and his gang of misfits continued along these lines. Rush stated at least three times that this would be turned against Republicans and explained that you don’t negotiate with Obama because he will not negotiate. He said that at least twice and even predicted what Obama was going to say in his speech in Vegas.

        • marketcomp

          I think Rush, like the rest of us, have been dooped by Rubio. Now he says he was against the fiscal cliff deal but I think if that vote was close and they depended on Rubio’s vote, he would’ve voted for it. So I no longer trust Rubio. The minute I saw him hanging out with John McCain I only saw another RINO! Simple, not complicated.

    • korn8131

      Isabel you are spot on! Rush tends to cover for the Republicans more often then not, likewise, the same for Hannity. Where as Levin goes after them big time.

      • aposematic

        Levin sees right/good/smart v. wrong/evil/stupid irregardless of capital letter.

      • cabensg

        I must have missed the shows where Rush agrees with Republicans. I’ve seen him give begrudging approval for something headed in the right direction but agree…I don’t think so. Just because he hasn’t tied them to a post and given them the horse whipping they deserve (which we would prefer) I don’t see agreement just frustration.

    • I completely agree!

    • Orangeone

      Me too!

    • white531

      You are golden, girl. Stop wasting your time on that other site. Stay here with us, where you are really needed.

  • And have you heard the mainstream media screaming about this? Not a peep. Just a “bump” in the road, right? Nothing to see here, just move on. God, do I hate the mainstream media. If this was Bush, we would literally be bombarded with front-page news articles that the economic world is coming to an end. And today you’d think nothing bad has happened at all. Well, start storing all of your goods, food, and whatever else you’ll need to survive. The economic collapse is coming, and then we’ll see how “understanding” Obama’s supporters will be, especially when they don’t get their government checks anymore.

    • Orangeone

      Be sure to purchase and properly store lots of ammo because those ObamaBots will try and seize what you have when the gov’t checks stop coming.

  • Rshill7

    If a Republican were in the White House?

    We’d all be a lot happier right now. Would feel better all around too. Less pressed upon. More confident. Less worried about what the government might do…or pull.

    • Conniption Fitz

      THAT all depends on WHICH Republican.

      If it were Cruz or Newt or Palin, that’s one thing.

      If it was some of the SohBs we have seen cow and kiss Obama’s boots, facilitate the destruction and continue the spending, pass Obamacare, etc. and then decide to give 12 million illegals amnesty, that’s another. The Bushite establishment have earned every bit of contempt we can bestow on them.

      • crosshr

        may not show, still I liked your comment numerous over C.F.

        Amen !

      • cabensg

        I had many disagreement with G.W. more after he was gone actually but he was the best of the bunch of Bushes. It seems no one remembers any good but I do. I can’t imagine anyone handling 9/11 better than he did and in spite of the vicious press he was successful in Afghanistan and Iraq and some day if we ever get anything but liberal historians he’ll be credited with it.

  • Right On Rush! Impeachment? Darn well should be and should have been 3 3/4 years ago! But not just obama, the whole darn democrat party should be impeached and imprisoned for violating their oath of office.
    Darn good Rush, now someone is starting to make sense America understands.
    Aw Shucks, ya’ll just throw a penny in the shoe box.

    • Orangeone

      I’d like to toss some Repubs into that impeachment group starting with crybaby Boehner, Cantor, Kline, and every flipping senator that voted to confirm Ketchup Boy yesterday

  • Conniption Fitz

    There are many more grounds for impeachment of many in this corrupt radical lawless administration than just the economy. For one, this POTUS was never constitutionally qualified to begin with.

    • Orangeone

      That behind closed doors conference will soon happen!

  • Sober_Thinking

    Spot on. Good old corrupt, criminal media…

  • sjmom

    The Obama economy is coming home to roost and the chicks are silent lest they awaken the public to how bad a mess Obama has us in.

    BTW Rush if the Republicans had any courage and moral strength Obama would have already been impeached.

  • deeme

    Oh Obama care and Bush tax cuts otherwise known as payroll cuts for everyone…will take care of that..It’s going to get real ugly..

  • mikeinidaho

    Recent news article: Obama and the communist regime blame the REPUBLICANS for this contraction. You can’t make this crap up! What a hoot these lamebrains are. But the sad thing is that the “low information voters” believe every word of this BS!

  • Conniption Fitz
  • They would say a republican is unpatriotic, like bho.

  • PhillyCon

    Isn’t Hurricane Sandy to blame for the weak numbers? Or something regarding defense cuts? This is the new line.

  • dcnj

    pfft they are gonna tank the dollar on purpose…you wait…then it’s gonna get fun.

    and ….buying a gun isn’t such a bad idea. It’s coming people hold on to your arse.

  • CAPITALISTS!!! …………………..American businessmen and businesswomen!!!
    Stop advertising with MSM!!!
    …………………………………..Let those idiots feel the economic squeeze!!!
    Hit those commies in the pockets!!! Help USA to survive!!!

  • Malkiel_kol_hakavod_la_el

    If a Republican was in the White house in 2009 – 2012 he already would have been impeached for just one of the illegal acts that obama committed….

  • bobemakk

    Rush is always right. I wish he would speak loudly about impeaching Obama. Our beloved country is not the super power it used to be and we are headed in the same direction as Greece and Spain, thanks to Obama. All the idiots who voted him back into office, are selfish and greedy, all they want is the social justice/entitlement programs and worry about themselves and no one else.
