Rush Limbaugh said on Thursday that he is ashamed of the United States for the first time in his life.
The conservative talk show host made the comments in regards to the pending sequestration. Although President Obama and Democrats feel the automatic cuts to federal spending would be detrimental to the country, Rush apparently isn’t buying it.
According to Politoc, Limbaugh said he was ashamed of the United States because he feels America’s intelligence is being insulted by Obama’s claims.
Rush explained on his show:
“Here they come sucking us in, roping us in, panic here, fear there, crisis, destruction, no meat inspection, no cops, no teachers, no firefighters, no air traffic control. I’m sorry, my days of getting roped into all of this are over. We have the media play along with all of this, the ruling class of both parties play along all of this — it’s insulting. I don’t know how else to describe it.”
Limbaugh believes that the arguments are all the same, and that nothing will ever change. According to Mediaite, Rush told his listeners that he believes Obama is using fear to get what he wants. He also referred to the sequestration as a manufactured crisis.
“I’ve said the same things over and over for 25 years. It’s the same stuff, it’s the same threats, it’s the same arguments, over and over nothing ever changes.”
“We just keep spending more money, we create more dependency, we get more and more irresponsible one crisis to the next, all of them manufactured. Except for the real crisis that nobody ever addresses and that is we can’t afford it.”
