Rush Limbaugh

From the transcript:

RUSH: There are two polls out now that have Romney 50, Obama 46 with likely voters. Two polls. The latest Gallup is just out: Romney is at the magic 50% level with likely voters over Obama at 46%. It's a seven-day rolling average. These clowns at Public Policy Polling, the liberal outfit in North Carolina, also have it at Romney 50-46.

Public Policy Polling does this poll for the Daily Kos, that bedwetting bunch of website Democrat base people. So there's two polls at 50-46. You just better prepare yourself. The media's already got the story written: "Obama, comeback kid! Won big!" No matter what happens. Romney is gonna have to literally wipe the floor with Obama for him to be declared the winner of this thing tonight.

But Romney has all these stats I just mentioned. You want me to run through this again? I'd rather take some phone calls. Twenty-three million unemployed, 5% loss median family income, 47 million food stamps, one in six in poverty, and the unemployment rate really is 15%. There's no recovery; there's no progress. We're in the middle of a disaster, created and architected by Barack Obama. He asked for this economy. He ran for president. He wanted it.

He has run it into the ground! [emphasis added]

That's OK, in case you haven't seen them, I think these two diaries nailed Rush at least as hard:

Big Trouble in Limbaugh Land - October 16, 2012

Troubles pile up for Rush - favorite sponsor Angie's List faces a serious legal challenge - October 16, 2012

Rush Limbaugh's talk radio career is in a slow downward spiral in part because of the activism of consumers, volunteers, and activists who seek to hold Rush accountable for his hate speech. One very active group in this cause is Flush Rush on Facebook. Flush Rush and other, similar groups use the StopRush Database to inform advertisers about where their ads are appearing.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
