LIMBAUGH: The New York Daily News and a lot of the New York media and some of the television networks -- New York Daily News reporting that the Empire State Building shooter -- you heard about this? OK. New York Daily News reporting the Empire State Building shooter did indeed kill his boss. Well, he was fired yesterday. He went out there and he killed his boss. I wonder if Obama's constant warfare on bosses and so forth might have led this guy to pull the trigger.
LIMBAUGH: Oh, you ought to see the faces of the people on the other side of the glass. "Oh, no. Rush, you didn't really said that -- say that. We got time on the delay to -- no, Rush. Oh, you didn't really say" -- yes, I said it. And we're not going to bleep it out.
I'll guarantee you, the last time there was a shooting in New York, who'd the mayor blame it on? Tea Party people that didn't like health care, right? Gabby Giffords, you name it. The shooting out in Colorado. Brian Ross, Tea Party did it.
Well, here you got a guy shooting his boss for being fired. Who's out there ripping bosses to shreds every day? Who's out there ripping businesses to shreds every day? And who's out there killing jobs every day?
So, yes. We're trying to illustrate absurdity by being absurd. The absurd way the news media, the rest of the left, try to capitalize and politicize any terrible crime that they think they can associate with Republicans or conservatives. We've seen it time and time again.
So, why not give them a dose of their own medicine here? You think Obama, you think the Democrats have any blood on their hands with this shooting today?
Don't be frightened in there on the other side of the glass. It isn't any big deal.
