“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of these…to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being is — it just makes me ashamed.” Rush Limbaugh told his radio listeners that day.

“Seriously man, here we get worked up over 44 billion dollars — that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. And in truth, we’re gonna spend more this year than we spent last year. We’re just not gonna spend as much as was projected. It’s all baseline budgeting.” Limbaugh added.

“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 this are over. We have the media playing along with all this. The ruling class of both parties play along with all this. It’s insulting. I don’t know how else to describe it.” Limbaugh said further.

“I’ve said the same things over and over for 25 years. Whether the Clinton presidency or the Obama presidency, whether it’s a Pelosi speakership or Tom Foley (who was speaker when I started), it’s the same stuff. It’s the same threats. It’s the same arguments over and over. Nothing ever changes!” The 62-year old political commentator noted in the latter part.
