I know, this isn’t REALLY news, but now that he’s said it on the Daily Show we’ll never hear the end of it.
But wait, it gets better:
KRAUTHAMMER: I’ll give you one fact. When Social Security was instituted, the age of longevity was 62. Today life expectancy is 80. So what you have is a huge change in the demographics and when you look to Europe, which is the social democratic state where we’re headed which has all the entitlements of the government activities which a liberal would want and — to with which American liberalism is headed — it became insolvent because it never adapted to the change in demographics and the change in technology. And it has had a rude awakening.
STEWART: If it was ever presented in that fashion, the way you just presented it, I think the conversation we would be having in this country would be very different.

Last night on Breitbart this came in over the transom. Try this headline: “Experts Conclude: Limbaugh Plan Better than Obama’s Stimulus.” And I said, “My gosh, who remembers that? That’s five years ago.” And Joel Pollak writing in Breitbart: “In 2009, at the height of debate about President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh proposed a compromise in the pages of the Wall Street Journal that would have devoted half the stimulus to tax cuts. Now, a new working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) concludes that Limbaugh was right, at least in terms of that portion of the stimulus that was directed to state governments.

Once again, I’ll tell you, this is so frustrating. I cannot tell you how everything that we predicted, folks, is panning out. Every bad aspect of this is happening. This is classic.
