From Townhall.com and Matt Lewis:
“Calling it his first ever address to the nation, Rush Limbaugh rocked the house at the Conservative Action Conference (CPAC) today.
From the time he entered the room to The Pretenders ‘My City Was Gone’ (his theme), to the time he exited the stage, Limbaugh inspired the over-flow, packed audience, and enjoyed countless standing ovations.”
I can’t wait to watch this online! It is linked up at Rush’s website and he’s posted the transcript as well. The twits at the Huffington Post are all abuzz about Rush “doubling down” on wanting Obama to fail–their words, not mine. In my opinion, if a speech by a Conservative gets those mental midgets all worked up, it was probably a great speech! [I’m not posting a link to their site. If you want to read that trash, you can find it yourself! Plus, I don’t want my comment box to be innundated by liberal fruitcakes because of an errant pingback.]
Rush’s First Nationally Televised Address to the Nation:
Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) Keynote Speech
A quick excerpt:
“I want to tell you who conservatives are. We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are because we make the mistake of assuming people know. What they know is largely incorrect based on the way we are portrayed in pop culture, in the Drive-By Media, by the Democrat Party.
Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. [Applause] When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don’t see groups. We don’t see victims. We don’t see people we want to exploit. What we see — what we see is potential. We do not look out across the country and see the average American, the person that makes this country work. We do not see that person with contempt. We don’t think that person doesn’t have what it takes. We believe that person can be the best he or she wants to be if certain things are just removed from their path like onerous taxes, regulations and too much government. [Applause]
We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause] We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause] Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you.”
