For the first time in his career, conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh proclaimed he was ashamed of the United States of America.

According to Limbaugh…both the left and right wing parties will not stop spending….and they have each resorted to “fear and panic” scenarios whenever anyone proposes cutting government programs.

“To be watching all of this, to have my intelligence – all of us – to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it is….it just makes me ashamed,” Limbaugh said, according to a transcript of his afternoon radio program.

“Seriously man, here we get worked up over 44 billion dollars — that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year.”

“I’ve said the same things over and over for 25 years,” Limbaugh said.

“It’s the same stuff. It’s the same threats. It’s the same arguments, over and over. Nothing ever changes.

“We just keep spending more money,” Limbaugh continued. “We create more dependency, we get more and more irresponsible one crisis to the next, all of them manufactured.

“Except for the real crisis that nobody ever addresses — and that is we can’t afford it.”
