RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): And it is terrific to see the country start to be opened up. You know, I — I cannot tell you, those of you who are listening regularly — this economic shutdown, this forced shutdown was just destroying me. It was breaking my heart over the damage that it was doing, not just to the country, but to individuals, and that it had to end. And so now, it is ending in various places.

The Democrat governor — the governor of Oregon has said they’re not opening up until July 6th. They don’t even have 200 deaths in Oregon. This is purely partisan politics.

I mean, a lot of these Democrat governors are keeping their states locked down and shut down, because obviously, orders are coming from on high — within the Democrat hierarchy — that whatever it takes to make sure Trump does not benefit from any kind of economic recovery, or rebound, or anything that might happen here that would entail good news, is just — it is mind-boggling.

And then these Democrat governors are — oh, are they discovering how much fun it is to wield all this tyrannical power on members — on residents of their states.

But there have been a lot of courageous openings. There've been a lot of places opening. Schools are being talked about now as — seriously thought about as reopening. So there’s progress in that area.
