PALM BEACH, Fla. – In the wake of a string of recent advances for Barack Obama’s left-leaning agenda, radio’s Rush Limbaugh, the top-rated voice on the political right, admitted Wednesday there appears on the surface to be little hope in rescuing America.
“It all looks like doom, unavoidable doom,” Limbaugh lamented.
On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage as the union between a man and woman to be unconstitutional.
But Limbaugh pointed out that was just one of a number of leftist initiatives moving ahead at full throttle.
“If amnesty happens,” he explained, “seven years from now this gonna be an entirely different country – politically, culturally, linguistically. It’d be different in six months if that happens. But that’s not isolated. Amnesty happens after Obamacare, and Obama’s efforts on climate change and so forth.”
“It looks like we’re headed to one-party rule!” he exclaimed.
“And there doesn’t seem to be any push back from the Republican Party. Push back is coming from the American people, a portion of them. If amnesty happens, that’s undeniable what that will bring. We’re talking about way too many people. We’re talking about a significant number of people who will be granted to vote sooner than 13 years. You know it and I know it.”
Limbaugh was responding to a caller named John from Indianapolis who had asked him: “What do you predict from the overflowing toilet that we call Washington, D.C.? What do you actually forecast flowing down that sewer from there and where will be in … seven to nine years?”
Limbaugh answered, “For 25 years, I have been asking, ‘When’s all this stuff gonna even out? When are we gonna hit the bottom? When are we gonna reach the point where people say this is enough and we start to rebound?’ And I’m continually surprised that we haven’t, that our decay continues apace.”
Still, Limbaugh stressed he was not predicting the inevitable demise of the United States.
“I’m not a fatalist,” he said. “I just have a feeling that something’s gonna happen to straighten this stuff out. I’ve always thought that. I don’t know why. I don’t know what my faith is in. In the past, it’s always been in the people. I’m not trying to be Pollyannish here. …
“I still have this gut feeling or whatever it is – and it might just be silly, blind, beauty-pageant-contestant faith – that this is all gonna work out. But I can’t tell you why or how, so it’s not worth much.”
He concluded his program by urging Americans, “Keep the faith, hang in there and be tough. And keep calling Washington on immigration.”
