Rush Limbaugh on his radio program today, praised Congressman Bob Turner as a solid guy with the perefect Temperrmanet. He also expressed his support in Bob Turner as the Republican Senatorial candidate, challenging Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the fall.
Below is the transcript:
"Snerdley, do you remember Bob Turner? Bob Turner was the president of Multimedia, which was a company that syndicated TV programs, and they syndicated mine in 1992 through 1996. Bob Turner was the president, and it was Bob Turner that chased Roger Ailes and me down one night at 21 with the idea of doing a show. He was a great guy. He is a great guy. And he has the perfect temperament. I mean, the guy knew what he was getting into. Almost. (laughing) He sized it up real quickly, and he was as loyal as the day is long.
He had a stick-to-itiveness. He couldn't be rattled. And at that time, 1992, we were just four years into the program. And the effort to discredit me and the program was every bit as intense then as it was now. And it would have been easy to avoid it. I mean, he was syndicating Phil Donahue and Sally Jessy Raphael, and Sally was not happy at all. Sally's show taped right down the hall from mine. Sally was not happy at all. Phil was kind of conflicted about it, 'cause Phil likes money.I remember getting on an airplane leaving a TV show convention. It was in New Orleans. We were flying back, and Donahue's in the seat next to me, and he starts talking about, "Boy, I'll tell you what. When I went out, I didn't get as many clearances as you've got. Ah! It was never this easy for me." I said, "Well, Phil, you're part of the company. I want to thank you for making it possible." He said, "Well, don't get too excited yet," but he was nice. He was just... But he had to be Phil Donahue.But, anyway, Turner ran Multimedia. He also had Jerry Springer. Jerry Springer was part of the mix. I remember we had to do a giant photo session on the roof of the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. It was my first real exposure to never-ending flashbulbs, flash attachments so forth. It was for a half hour up there.Anyway, Bob Turner is a member a Congress. He won an election. He won the seat that was previously occupied by Huma Weiner's husband. What was his name? Anthony. It was Anthony. He won Weiner's seat. He now sits in the Weiner seat in the House of Representatives. Hee-hee-hee!Anyway, Bob's going for all the marbles. He's running for the Senate. And there's a Republican primary in New York on June 26th, and he's got a good chance of winning this thing, and we want him to win this seat. He'd be great in the Senate. If he wins the primary, he'd be up against Kirsten Gillibrand for all the marbles.And, by the way, there's a story here in TheHill.com: "Democratic hopes of recapturing the House are dimming as a series of race-by-race setbacks and economic uncertainty suggest that the 25 seats they need to net might be out of reach."A lot of people are gunning for the Senate to get rid of Harry Reid and the liberal Democrat leadership and replace as many liberal Democrats with conservative Republicans in the Senate as they can. That is an objective that's above and apart from the Republican presidential race. That's equally as important.There are a lot of Tea Party people working on that, in fact. But, anyway, Turner found himself involved in a...Well, here's the story. It's from Fox News. "A group of New York City children..." You remember when they were banned from singing God Bless the USA at a graduation ceremony not long ago? "A group of New York City children banned from singing God Bless the USA at a graduation ceremony were heckled by adults when they sang the song at a nearby playground." So kids singing God Bless the USA got heckled by Democrat adults! "The protest had been organized by parents at PS 90 in Coney Island. They were outraged after principal Greta Hawkins banned kindergartners from performing the song at their graduation ceremony. "Staffers said the principal was worried the patriotic anthem might offend other cultures. She also feared that the Lee Greenwood song would not be age-appropriate for the youngsters -- concerns shared by the New York City Dept. of Education."Now, Bob Turner went to this thing. He had been invited by the parents. He's running for the Senate against Kirsten Gillibrand. "'I thought it would be a great idea,' Turner said. 'The kids were a delight.' According to video of the incident, boys and girls were waving American flags and singing God Bless the USA when adults began swarming and shouting." For the children! Democrat adults tried to drown out and heckle kindergartners! Can you believe this? Kindergarteners! They bullied 'em. That's exactly right. They were bullying them, and Bob Turner was out there standing with the kids. Bob Turner was out there helping them sing God Bless the USA. Turner said, "I thought it would be a great idea. The kids were a delight."So we love Bob Turner. He's just a solid, solid, great guy, and we wish him all the best."
