Rush Limbaugh Wraps Up CPAC Today With Speech

Rush Limbaugh will give ia speech and also he will receive the "Defender of the Constitution award."

Rush Wraps Up CPAC on Saturday

RUSH : Listen to Carl Cameron's report on Fox. Fox News is going to carry the speech live at five o'clock. They've been promoing it since last night, they're promoing it all morning today, and I'm saying, "Man, I better be good, all this attention?" (interruption) "Well, this is the head of the party." No. I'm not the head of the party. See, this is where these Looney Toons are missing the whole boat here. If I'm head of anything, which I'm not, but if I'm head of anything, it's conservatism, but not the party.

You know, Clint Eastwood had it right, Clint Eastwood said he's fed up with political correctness. He's fed up with everybody trying to be politically correct. He's fed up with nobody being able to laugh anymore. He's fed up with not being able to tell race jokes and ethnic jokes. When he was growing up, everybody did. Nobody took offense at it. Every race tells jokes about the other race. Every country tells jokes about people in other countries. We can't do it anymore. And he's right, and, as such, people don't understand humor any more, unless it's liberal humor, and liberals especially do not laugh. I never see a happy one. Even liberal comics are angry and filled with rage. I just never see it. This program's one of the funniest programs on the radio and the libs don't get one syllable of it, which, to me, is sort of fun at the same time, 'cause I can tweak 'em any time I want to, and they don't even know that they're being played. Anyway, here's Carl Cameron this morning, reporting live from the Conservative Political Action Conference.

CAMERON: The radio icon always a polarizer, love him or hate him, liberals hate him, here the conservatives at this CPAC conference are just in a lather waiting for him here. It's the biggest turnout, people are talking about how Republicans are in disarray and have problems because of the last election and the breakdown. They acknowledge that here, but there's no sense of demoralization at all. The GOP and conservatives ready to get sort of back to core principles and see the Obama administration and the Democrat control of Congress as the perfect opportunity for them to do it.

RUSH: Largest crowd ever, is what Carl Cameron and others have been saying. So it will be on TV at five o'clock, and I'm on time. Presents CPAC 2009 Online

9:00 a.m. - 6:p.m.

Rush is scheduled to be on at 5:00 p.m.

Also Rush's speech will air on FON news channel at 5:00 EST as well

I caught CPAC also was shown yesterday on C-SPAN

So there are a few place if you would like to see it available.

Also Gov. Sarah Palin was asked to speak and I guess is unable to make it. So she did an interview instead and they will be showing her video. I am not sure if they will show the interview on TV or just in one of the conference rooms of the conference.

Yesterday House Republican Leader John Boehner told conservatives today at CPAC that the Democratic Majority and President Obama are taking the first steps toward an American brand of socialism.

"First it was the stimulus, then the omnibus and now the budget," Boehner said during a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference. "It's all a down payment on a new American socialist experiment."
"The spending barrage is just beginning," he added.

I've got my alarm set to make sure I watch it. Newt was good yesterday and I believe Rush will be better.

I wish I could attend this conference. Just watched Bill Bennet. Optimism is difficult to come by these days. There is some at this conference.

Posted by: TomR at February 28, 2009 11:55 AM

I've got 5000 stations, and none of them have anything worth watching. Hopefully if I start now, about 1 pm, I will be able to find it.

Posted by: Mark at February 28, 2009 12:56 PM

Earlier today I put on C-SPAN to watch the 2009 CPAC coverage - like last year - and on C-SPAN they had 'The State of The Black Union'... In exactly six hours and three minutes, Black History Month ends! "GOD love Clint Eastwood...
and Bo Derek too!"

Just watched Rush and he was on Fire. He covered everything. I didn't think they were going to let him out of there.

Just outstanding, uplifting and most of all encouraging.

Posted by: Mark at February 28, 2009 06:25 PM

Wow!!! Thank you Chrissie everything came to a screeching halt for this address. Rush in his 'first international address' wowed the audience, I have never witnessed so many standing ovations as he made salient point after salient point about everything that's wrong with the current administration. We'll have to mute the news for weeks now as they try to discredit Rush and all the conservatives. God bless Rush, he deserved that "Defender Of The Constitution" award signed by Benjamin Franklin. Very inspirational!!!
Thank you

Interesting...I am a moderate democrat who stumbled upon Rush's speech and found it a little eye opening in a good way, actually. It was interesting however that near the end of the speech CNN went snowy - said it was a power outage in DC ....hmmm....didn't like the message? I then switched to Fox and found the speech still in progress. No power outage for Fox? Rush was in DC for both networks I believe. Interesting how mainstream media pulls the plug when they aren't happy with the message. I think I will tune to Rush on Monday to learn more. Maybe I have been misled by the democrats.

BobF, good idea. It is done now but I wanted to respond. It was uplifting and the kind of speech that I will not forget. Awesome.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:45 PM

Tom, yes it is filled with people that feel like we all do. We are upset and angry but there is a positive side to all of this too. Like the Phoenix, some will rise to the top to take a lead for conservatives.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:48 PM

Mark, it was weird, we had it on C=Span and then right before Rush was to speak they cut to some kind of Black group meeting with Travis Smiley. So we watched it on Fox.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:52 PM

Darth, yes Clint really is upset about all the PC stuff. Bo Derek is great too, she is a Republican.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:54 PM

Mark, YEssssss you said it!! He really was on FIRE!

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:55 PM

Jack, I agree it sure was inspirational. I love too how Rush can laugh at himself, and all he says is right from his heart. He loves America so much.

Posted by: Wild Thing at February 28, 2009 10:57 PM

Peg, I am so glad thank you for sharing about it. Yes do give Rush a chance, listen to his show and check it out for yourself.

One thing for sure Rush loves this country and wants everyone in it to succeed and do well.
