The Quote Of The Week

I am thinking I may start a new series in which I will post quotes from people. Like a lot of people, I have a fascination with quotes, good and bad. We all have times when we are sitting and reading an article or watching TV and we hear something that makes us go YEAH, or, I can’t believe they just said that. I will either give an Eagle, I like this graphic below, or… I will have to figure out an alternative.

Drum roll, please… The quote for today goes to Rush Limbaugh for his comment to Jonathan Martin’s Blog on

Rush was talking about the Colin Powell endorsement of Barack Obama and whether it is suspicious.

"Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race," Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail. "OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with."

For this thought provoking quote, I give Rush Limbaugh the Eagle

Yeah i read about the endorsement, i don't know from where i stand it sounds like a betrayal to me. Perhaps not of the lowest order, but still a betrayal.

Glad to hear Rush is giving it to him in spades.

Something i saw in a movie recently, a sticker about bald people. Along the lines of "God only made so many perfect heads, the rest he covered up with hair".

That's a good one i think, and no, i ain't bald, at least not yet.

Chuck said...

My favorite quote, the bald one. I am bald at 45. Started going bald in my 20's. Bigger things in life o worry about.

Rush deserves a gold medal as far as I'm concerned. He consistently speaks for our movement and doesn't dilute or waver on that. Maybe he could give Joe the Plumber a spot on the show if the liberals force him out of his job.
The endorsement by Powell is a slap in the face to all of us. But aren't we getting used to being shoved around yet?

Conservative said...

Ofcourse it's about race. Look, a balck comes first even if it's for a socialist. Does Powell care about what the (he, Obama) wants to do is penalize people for being SUCCESSFUL. Yes I am SUCCESSFUL and I became that way from working hard, working lots of hours, going to collage and learning how to be SUCCESSFUL. I am what I consider to be comfortably wealthy and I enjoy the fine things in live and want to do the best that I can for my family.. That is why I worked so hard for. NOT to help out as you call them and I agree “CRACK HEADS” Yes, people that sit on their ass’s looking for hand outs for the likes of a MARXIST CREEP like Obama. As well as ACORN, and whoever else the Obama campaign/DNC paid to register people.
I’m inclined to distrust EVERY claim of Obama And EVERYTHING he says Given Obama’s history (e.g. caucuses, intimidation, fraud conventions and delegate stealing even before the convention, contributions, and more importantly his associations ) it’s almost believable that he is where he is today. And that shows the stupidly of the people... And since the Democrats accept the BS that he has slung around at will, who’s to know what is and isn’t real?
Let them eat cake, and let them eat crack. Let the crack head go screw himself! I’ll donate MY money if and when I please too. I don’t need no stinken Obama to tell me what to do with MY money.. I already pay enough in taxes and I will shut my business, before I give my hard earned money to some LAZY crack head who doesn’t work and doesn’t pay taxes. That’ the kind of narrow-sighted thinking that the left thrives on.
Where ever there are lies, cheaters, deceit, felenonies committed, Obama is attached to the organization. Is this who America wants for President. People that support Obama have no shame or respect for their country.
I truly feel sorry for all of the people in this country that don’t have enough pride, and interest in our country and it’s future to get informed. We will all pay dearly for this ignorance and laziness. Iam not saying that McCain does not have his faults but at least his goal is the same as most of ours- He loves this country and will do whatever he thinks is best to better the country. Shame on all of you that are willing ot risk this country on SOCIALIST like Obama

What Conservative said... I can't add anything to that!

Myself said...

Nor can I dd2. He said it best

Mustang said...

As to Rush "getting back" to us, it would probably not be a good idea to hold our breath.

Semper Fi

Brooke said...

Once again, Rush is right!

cube said...

Rush is right, but not because he's some frelling rocket scientist. Anybody with two neurons to rub together could see that Powell's choice is all about race.

Nancy said...

Rush always puts things so perfectly. I think its a good idea about the quotes, thats an interesting way to go.

Chuck said...

I think Rush's comment pretty much sums it up. As far as Powell, I think it's a mixture of race and the fact that most people way overexxagerated how conservative he was. He was more an opportunist with Bush than a fellow Republican.

Cube, your right. It's easy to say this in hindsight but I assumed he would do this all along.

Nancy, thanks. I'm trying to decide on how to do it as a regular (maybe weekly) fixture. I'm trying to decide what to give the "bad" quotes, something in keeping with he bird theme.

Everyone knows that it's a virtue for a non-white to be race-conscious but a vice for a white man. I don't want whites to be race conscious but I do wish the others would be less-so.

Chuck said...

Myself, welcome and thanks for stopping by.

Shoprat, it's the double standard that's killing me
