Limbaugh: For the first time I’m ashamed of my country

On his Thursday program, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said he is “ashamed” of his country, specifically lamenting both the apparent lack of fiscal discipline in Washington and media coverage of ongoing budget negotiations.

It is particularly galling, Limbaugh said, that politicians and analysts are resisting the prospect of cutting $44 billion from the federal budget through sequestration.

“Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country,” Limbaugh said. “Seriously man, here we get worked up over $44 billion. That’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year.”
