As the Romney campaign gains momentum, Rush Limbaugh made a positive prediction.
“If Romney wins this,” he told listeners, “we are going to see signs of an economic uptick very quickly. It’s gonna be practically immediate. It’s gonna be amazing” (FREE audio).
Casino mogul Steve Wynn made news this week when he launched into a blistering critique of Obama’s economic policies, saying his company has created 250,000 jobs – which is “exactly 250,000 more than this president.”
This was music to Limbaugh’s ears.
“A-freaking-men,” Rush said. “I tell you, there’s a boatload of resentment out there, and most of the people feeling it don’t have the courage, guts or the desire to speak up and say it” (FREE audio).
Donahue noted the irony that “this happens as Savage departs the airwaves for awhile,” having won a lengthy battle to free himself from his previous contract.
Savage himself has informed his millions of fans that he’ll be back on the airwaves soon, hopefully “within two weeks.”
The veteran host and bestselling author told the San Francisco Chronicle that he’s “got to be back [on the air] before these presidential debates are over. And when I do, it will be bigger than ever.”
Klein’s listeners were privy to exclusive audio of Obama this week, which revealed his true feelings about race, capitalism, foreign policy and much more. Not to be confused with a 2007 speech that was widely aired last week, this newly discovered address by Obama to Harvard Law School contained more incendiary (and inaccurate) accusations against President Bush’s handling of Hurricane Katrina.
Klein also speculated on whether an “October Surprise” was in the works, talked about foreign affairs with Rep. Trent Franks and John Batchelor, and served up some comic relief with Jackie Mason (FREE audio).
Mitt Romney endured plenty of criticism after his remarks about the attack on the Libyan embassy, but the facts are finally out and as Mark Levin put it, he was “the only one who got it right” (FREE audio).
Levin condemned Obama’s mistreatment of a Gold Star Father, who waited months for the White House to acknowledge his son’s sacrifice; when the response finally arrived, the father says, it was just a form letter.
“Barack Obama has ice water in his veins and uses the military for a play thing,” Levin declared. “It’s time for a new commander in chief” (FREE audio).
Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., came on the program, noting that while Obama has time to chat with the ladies on “The View,” he hadn’t met with him in 18 months.
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton analyzed Mitt Romney’s first major foreign policy speech, calling it “strong,” and noting it “struck a Reagan-esque tone of ‘peace through strength.’” Bolton condemned the administration’s attempts to cover up its own incompetence by blaming the attacks on U.S. embassies abroad on an obscure video (FREE audio).
A happy day ended badly for Glenn Beck last weekend. After his daughter’s wedding, his parked rental car rolled down a hill, “flipping over several times before coming to a stop.”
A member of Beck’s security detail actually jumped into the SUV to try to stop it, mistakenly assuming that one of Beck’s children was in the car. Luckily, no one was in the vehicle during the freak accident.
