Limbaugh Goes Off: ‘For The First Time In My Life, I Am Ashamed Of My Country’

“Nothing ever changes,” Rush Limbaugh lamented on Thursday. Pointing to the narrative surrounding the country’s spending concerns and “manufactured” crises, the talk radio host grew frustrated, saying he’s no longer getting “roped in.”

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

Referring to the country’s spending, Limbaugh said we’ll spend more this year than we spent last year. “There is not real cut,” he said. Yet “here they come” with the panic and fear.

“Crisis, destruction,” Limbaugh continued, citing the potentially disastrous effects of the sequester that President Obama recently listed.

“My days of getting roped in to all this are over,” he said, criticizing the media and “ruling class” for going along with the narrative. Deeming it insulting, Limbaugh said we keep hearing the same “threats” and arguments, it never changes.

One manufactured crisis to the next, he went on, we spend more, growing more dependent and irresponsible.

But here’s the real crisis: “We can’t afford any of this.”
