    Limbaugh: Don’t tell ‘people on welfare when the election is’ | The Raw Story

    Rush Limbaugh is calling on his listeners to keep the election date a secret from the poorest Americans.

    “Ninety-nine days, folks,” the conservative radio host announced on Monday. “Ninety-nine days before the election. If you are a welfare recipient, that’s just a little more than three checks.”

    “Maybe we shouldn’t remind people,” he added after thinking about it. “We shouldn’t remind people on welfare when the election is. That may not be something we want to actually do.”

    Earlier this month, Limbaugh suggested that President Barack Obama was plotting to win reelection with new rules that allow states to apply for waivers to work requirements under the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program.

    The president doesn’t “want people off of welfare in this regime” because “those are voters that are getting away,” Limbaugh said.

    .

    So the thinking here is that he was being serious, that they'll be able to hide the date?

    Really?

    Lol ! If there are people out there that get this easily confused about when it's time to vote, then indeed it would be best if they simply stayed home.

    Seriously, Mac is right, how the hell could there be a serious attempt to hide the date ?
    There are so many campaign ads running and non-stop discussion about the upcoming election, that it's laughable to think the date could be hidden away from a particular group.

    So encouraging more Americans not to vote. I suppose he expects illegals to vote; the only people who seem to vote actually care about the country (and their own welfare).

    If more Americans actually voted, then America wouldn't be in the mess it is in now; so rather than encouraging more Americans to vote across the political and social-economic spectrum, he instead focuses all his efforts on encouraging people not to vote. Great going for someone who claims to 'care' about America's future. :eusa_hand:

    Nope, I am just pointing out the man's stupidity and general assholey opinions. I don't watch his show or whatever else he writes about; the closest I heard about him was from an Ann Coulter book. :tongue:

    This cannot be good for conservatives because half of their voting block are on welfare in deep red states.
