LIMBAUGH: ‘We’re in the midst of designed class and race wars’
The level of optimism in this country is at a low not seen since 1979, Jimmy Carter. Only 39% of the people in this country are optimistic about the country. Now, I checked the e-mail when I mentioned this in the first hour or second hour. People sent me e-mail, “Well, how do you explain Obama being reelected?” It makes perfect sense. If you’re sitting out there and you’re in a defeatist frame of mind, and you have no hope for the future, then you vote for the guy who’s telling you that there’s a way of dealing with all this and that he’s in the process of fixing it or making it fair or what you have. But I think it makes perfect sense that the lowest level of optimism since 1979 would result in Obama being reelected.
There’s a lot of factors, by the way, that go into why Obama was reelected, and largely it’s not enough Romney voters turned out. It’s a whole ‘nother discussion for a whole ‘nother day. But we’re in the midst here of, I think, designed — I don’t say this lightly. We’re in the midst here of designed class and race wars. They’re brewing out there. The president, in an inaugural address, the president of the United States was filled with venom for his political opponents, and there are 60 some odd million of them who voted against him. It’s not just the Republicans in Washington. There’s 67 million Americans who voted against Obama. He declared war against them, too. He declared war against Republicans and, by extension, anybody who voted for them.
