Web two years ago tomorrow the five launched over 500 plus shows and we've only had a handful of guests Barbara Bush Sarah Palin Donald Trump a few others.
It's my pleasure now to welcome the king of talk radio personal friend of mine in a friend of free -- It's Rush Limbaugh rush welcome.
Before we get into the important news of the day -- -- -- political spy on the headline to make it seem like you -- issue with Fox News headline says quote.
Rush Limbaugh tells -- or not to watch Fox News now I know better but can you explain to people what you think Politico is up to.
Absolutely and by the way Eric I am the news of the day so I'm not that extra.
Happier that I'm thrilled to be here I've I love your guys show -- I've I've whenever I watched it in the afternoon -- is it.
You know I I had a caller.
Who was just.
Almost just -- of profane he was angry spitting.
Any inquiry started telling me why he was upset they start listing names of people.
And on on a fox it turned -- the Fox Business Network and much of the names I didn't know who they word that which is why I was having trouble.
And he would it would just come off the wall -- -- or look just stop listening to those people stop watching those people and I kept saying those people I never said.
Don't watch fox now.
I have said over the course in my career don't watch ABC don't watch NBC and has never read the -- This I never said don't watch fox but the media it was only.
I guess they consider me and talk radio when you guys the last vestige of any opposition.
To the leftist agenda in the country Obama the Democrat party of -- that -- -- drug drive a wedge.
And they were clearly trying to and it's amazing how -- -- that it it made web sites all over the country.
So eager are -- for UN IA to adjust literal way and become ineffective but -- gonna work.
-- can I just -- out it's got felt that was me who called in.
I would ultimately.
That's I was drunk and that's -- that's why you did not identify your zone that way they handled it entirely differently I would have told you to stop watching -- they rest before you didn't -- And it has an important question for but it's very important question but as you know rushed the best way for -- -- that to make front page news it's an attack a Republican back and forth.
And so I'm not surprised that they did this to you and I think that -- we all sought for what it actually was.
I noted askew because you obviously very successful in the media were having our two year anniversary tomorrow.
You say you watch every day and I was curious because we've been asked what makes our shows exit so successful.
I I wonder why you think it's successful.
-- -- It's there's nothing contrived about it.
And you all seem to enjoy what you're doing and I it's it's got passion I think -- -- passion is the magnate to anything.
If if if people are speaking of -- nationally and -- -- They have a a level of intelligent about it that there is officially informed it is going to be at a -- to people.
-- -- -- single like each other and even during times where there might be.
Striking disagreement that it it doesn't seem.
Filled with stress.
But and it's unpredictable.
You guys might identify what you're gonna talk about -- nobody knows where it's gonna go and nobody knows who's gonna say what -- him.
As always it's it's it's something you can't predict if it's Ivan it's got all the always elements but you guys make the -- because it's.
Personality driven and it's just real it just happens and it's it's relevant it's topical and all your are are are relatively intelligent.
And again rush rush we want to get to this today and -- want says he's very important question also so -- and people are a little confused because sometimes it does seem like he might be shooting at folks on fox can you could.
Something up for me finally please right here right now you know why -- Angela tarantula.
-- Did you take that as an insult no I don't I got -- and I -- -- -- I have two great legs not eight great legs.
I asked you now that you're mad you're -- unlike the answer because it's it's somewhat sexist ads and -- compliment.
OK I like I hear -- -- come from.
A long -- bureau -- men could be men and stereotypical humor didn't offend anybody.
You are Andrea tarantula it was what the spider is a window but what do black widows due to man.
And if you are just you -- you were so dominant you -- soul -- -- you are so confident.
I wouldn't want to mess with you.
Or you're gone -- no problems.
Hunt and that's about it so it's it's it's a compliment you are the news -- -- but let's get to some of the news of the day by putting in their Bob -- -- -- months ago and irrational -- this Beckel I one day.
Steve you rivers and I remember when you came to do our show what Tony Snow we've Akron co -- record and you mentioned on -- -- You said Bob is they elect Bill Clinton president I'm going to be the biggest talk show host in history.
You remember that.
-- and I you turned out to do what I mean what city.
That was was that the TV -- -- Washington yeah yeah what and that's where I met Jane Mayer -- -- PJ O'Rourke was comment yet another show that -- -- -- -- -- and you and I remember that day well.
It was a late Friday afternoon and I flew down and and it was.
I don't know if you work you -- early in the if commitment -- group back and -- there's was what are but it was feeding off eleven and that was.
Your efforts it to get in that game and I liked it.
The woman about about Clinton -- it is it is said that that Clinton.
Help me to -- actually made me you know I was already at 500 radio stations before Clinton was elected I'd been on here for years.
And when Clinton -- not evident in her 112.
To finish it up but but really my success had nothing to do little.
With Clinton for saying he didn't permit but I didn't I didn't need Bill Clinton in order to have to prosper.
Okay all right good bye let's robot got rushed there's a big dominating cable news the -- about Martin George Zimmerman trial it's all over the place.
Rush talked to us a little bit about is this that George Zimmerman on trial or is it race in America on trial -- -- specifically.
Taught us about the media's role in all of this.
I think the media and you all excluded of course I think the media is invested in -- guilty verdict.
And they're invested -- -- guilty verdict it's racial.
And New York Times call this guy -- white Hispanic.
And CNN has picked up Monica and Zimmerman a white here's what is a white Hispanic I mean that's a desire.
To categorize this is entirely racial when it probably had nothing to do with the race the actual event and when it happened.
But everybody wants to make -- that because there are there are just that I think races I've gotten to know liberals over the course of my career here.
Something about race in the civil rights movement is is.
It's almost of a rite of passage to be.
A liberal in the media and you have to have that.
Perspective that this country is inherently racist and it has not recovered from slavery and it still miss treats everybody.
Of minority skin color.
You're invested -- this country is immoral and unjust on that basis and every opportunity to prove you're gonna take it even -- -- to make -- up.
And this was it's just like this like to do what Duke Lacrosse case there was no evidence whatsoever to support any.
I'm the contentions the media made or the faculty of duke.
This is the same thing I had a story today judicial watch.
Got hold of some documents from justice.
Via a freedom of information and there's a community relations service part -- DOJ which by its name -- -- -- to go down and help facilitate community.
Peeks at coming together and so for these people from the DOJ were -- Sponsoring.
Rallies prior to this trial sponsoring people getting together.
A bus to protesters in to Sanford Florida from nearby universities the DOJ Eric Holder was invested in this being seen it.
As a racism.
And unfairness and -- this against this -- -- not trade on -- And it's if they can't let go of it in and that's why there's wall to wall coverage this trial I don't even think should be taking place I don't even think it's a case here.
Rush it's the torrential -- do you think that this wouldn't be a national story if the president wouldn't.
Have weighed in and -- Eric Holder wouldn't have made such a big deal out of it and and actually spoke about this case.
That helped it but I think the media would have made this -- cause celeb.
Oh whether Obama had said anything -- holder not and you know brought Al Sharpton down there and called reverend Alan.
And -- agreed with him on all -- I think the media is capable.
Totally capable itself of making -- say a nationwide issue by covering it.
With in the framework that they hope everybody sees it and Obama was just icing on the cake and then Eric Holder did.
Are restless move on to the other story that's making the rounds right now immigration -- -- -- proposal on -- -- it amnesty.
What it what you come down on this one rush.
I don't think everybody says the immigration system's broken and aren't the only thing that I can see -- -- broken.
About the immigration system is that were not enforcing existing law I don't and all.
What couldn't be fixed if we just did that I don't think we need a whole new -- -- laws.
What -- being told today is exactly what the country was told in 1986.
With Simpson -- -- -- if we legalize these three million we grant them amnesty it will never have to do this again.
And -- -- all kinds of promises about border security first that was taken back.
There's no effort to secure the border therefore -- no effort to stop.
The inflow I'll tell you what I really think and I really believe this I really believe the Democrat party.
That -- in both parties are fault -- so don't don't jump on me out.
The Democrat party needs a permanent underclass negative permanent dependent class of people that are low educated low wage low -- -- dependent on government.
They need that now has as Americans.
Climb the ladder of success and elevate themselves through the middle class become less dependent on government the Democrats -- replace them.
The Democrat party clearly -- eleven million votes here.
The Republican Party.
At two things going on they're scared to death they believe -- I have don't you guys find it funny the Democrats keep telling Republicans look foolish you guys help us -- that you're never gonna win the White House as though they -- -- You think Obama the Democrats really want to share some of your voters witness I don't mind that.
-- Republicans and their parent -- the Republicans are scared to death believing a myth.
That unless they do this the Hispanics are never gonna support -- the Hispanic turnout was seven point 8%.
Romney -- twenties embers if -- had gotten 70% of the Hispanic vote when he probably still lost.
This is that this is a giant it's a myth everything amount -- I think the Republicans.
Have businesspeople want cheap laboring and so forth but -- call -- -- earlier you're trying to hurt a guy called me the other day and made a great point -- -- -- -- -- -- There's so many people in America not working and still eating.
And still driving and still watching TV and still calling on their phones they don't need a job in the American business community needs workers and that's why.
The Republican Party is for this businesses can't find qualified or anybody to work as Americans want anymore I mean that's how roiled this has gotten.
They rushed about the idea that somehow that is being floated that.
If the Republicans embrace this bill Democrats will no longer.
Call them racists and I I firmly believe that.
At telling a Democrat not to cry racism is like telling -- -- not to play free bird that's not get a change in my right.
Well -- didn't they say if we elected Obama.
In the country would no longer be racist because we would -- that we want because we've elected the first black president.
And we were gonna be unified and happy and it was going to be utopian -- -- -- in a whistling -- my yacht and none of that has happened I think.
That that the Republicans get tricked by really skillful.
And media people Republicans.
Let's don't let the with the -- Republicans are intimidated.
By the media when it comes to independents.
Republicans told don't criticize Obama don't bi partisan that just makes the independence may have been -- gonna run right to the Democrats the minute -- -- partisan -- -- -- -- want bipartisanship.
-- the Republicans.
They got docile and they don't criticize Obama they are quite nice it never works and the independents -- -- spoke at a Democratic Party is is means there are extreme as anybody I've ever seen.
Rush rush is bad wait what are you talking about some Republicans who don't read rumors that that they -- there other structures -- -- help -- -- these Tea Party people and ours are all this stuff up but by the way the Forte made -- owners can't.
Get to be a -- voters.
Under the senate bill for fourteen to twenty years.
So what do you expect to have eleven -- million a new voters I mean it is the Republicans that are cause of the problem at Atlanta Democrat.
Just the other day the president United States said you know what I don't like the individual employer mandate -- -- just gonna cancel it.
Well I get -- Bob I will guarantee you if this bill passes as the gang of -- bill exists today.
And there is this whatever it is twelve to fourteen year waiting period to vote.
Within six hours of the bill's passage Chuck Schumer we'll find the nearest camera and talk about how unfair.
It is that we have granted these people up pathway out of the shadows.
But that they can't vote.
And the next day they'll be able to vote you what that.
Whole reason for doing -- that's the only reason anybody cares about this again this time eleven million voters to be bought you're not to do -- either Democrat democratic demographic increase of respect by the year 2030.
They're going to be so -- that dominant.
That's just gonna affect the Republican Party I think.
The Republican Party can get anybody by being conservative if they start pandering we got a set of policies for this -- -- a policy that group.
We're finally be here we don't dislike you hear.
They're gonna for ever lose because that's the democrats' game -- the Republicans can't win Meehan Democrat -- The Republicans are are are abandoning what they need to do to win we got the greatest opportunity Bob.
The Democrat to Republicans do to contrast themselves.
With what the Democrat party stands for and they're not using it they're trying to be Democrat party light.
They're trying to echo the Democrat party be perceived like a Democrat party be liked by the Democrat party be liked by Democrat voters it's a losing game.
Hey rush I don't want to rush you -- so to speak.
Wouldn't -- -- -- mentioned something at the employer mandate in obamacare -- has questions for you are in that level I wondered if do you think that because they did that.
And that -- on a slow news weekends they try to get out that.
People that -- Gallup -- until I got it said 33% of people -- think it's been repealed anyway.
What do you think that the -- if you were advising one of those consultants.
In for the house Republicans -- the senate Republicans what would what do you think they should try to do now.
Well I don't I don't you see this as much.
I don't know but I'm -- my businesses and politics.
And I have opinions about it but I would.
You know laughter Meehan and throw me off the show I would advise republicans' just say no.
Just stop this business that's not to do there -- here advice there is nothing well then they need to hold fast to it that -- -- it.
All the -- broken is we're not enforcing the law already on the books all we've you know Bob.
If these guys would simply secured the border you'd be amazed at the magic that would happen after the but nobody wants to -- that nobody wants to shut down this inflow.
-- -- -- -- It can't -- -- there there's a group of conservative or let's senators that want to do that I'm thinking that Rand Paul won test takers still in some other ones as well.
That -- that do wanna do that I wanna shut the border down first before any the other stuff goes through before -- but their immigrant amnesty.
You know giveaway goes happens in before they get Obama -- But -- is -- what you say to the fact that deportations are up -- -- The number of people coming in a country.
Well see that's that's the more evidence I think for my point of view of these though it's -- -- washes and it from what we know that.
People leaving on their own is in washing out by the people coming in it's a net number now.
The economy's down the attraction to come here is not Mir is not quite as great there's no crisis is the point they -- there's no reason that if acts that -- done right now.
Under the rubric of -- every time we do something.
That's in the middle of a crisis has to happen now and can't wait the Republican Party gets the shaft.
-- on -- Friday the administration also.
Announced that they would not be requiring people because the an individual mandate is still enforceable.
They wouldn't -- verifying whether or not they had health insurance they're just gonna trust what people say.
-- you think this is an opportunity for the Republicans on obamacare to push back on the individual mandate now.
I I don't think got I haven't repeal the whole thing I would -- I had 37 times in the house but but.
But I mean that the case can be made to the American people I'm -- here's.
You what Obama is doing with this -- I laughed when I hear people you know it's it's all for an apartment Obama rush no it's not.
He is getting everything he wants on and on what you just mentioned the honor system anybody can say I qualify for a subsidy what Obama wants two things.
It will with this that happen on Friday you're talking about.
If you -- he's -- campaigning.
For a bill that sorted along the way he's getting Hollywood NFL players trying to get everybody to push -- Y 2010 is one key.
The Democrats lost down the ballot they got shellacked it was deep it was -- it was it was rotten they lost the house.
It was because a Tea Party came to life because of Obama cares that trying to change people's minds about it but the second thing -- The more people they can entice to come -- And sign up -- these exchanges the harder it's going to be the taken away you get this entitle you get the win of the tentacles of this entitlement.
Deep into the fabric of society and it'll never be repealed it'll never be taken away.
