Then you're just a hypocrite. If you think it is wrong for Limbaugh to make certain claims and to not back them up, then it is wrong for you to do it as well. It is a very childish mentality to think just because you believe someone has done something wrong that it gives you carte blanche.

Plus, you are making a charge he is not only doing something illegal, but something particularly heinous.

Lots of women in the Dominican Republic as well.

If you are going to employ that kind of tenuous logic, then it could be used to make the same assumptions about you. Lets say you were seen walking out of a drug store with some "protection," and when you get in your car, there isn't a woman waiting for you, but your dog. See where this is going?

But I guess when you hate someone, you are all-too-willing to believe the worst about them, beyond all reason and logic.

Like I said " only in America".


Yes, because Rush Limbaugh's paycheck is responsible for all the ills you listed. Whether Limbaugh gets $1 or $400 million doesn't help nor hurt anyone else.

Limbaugh is not taking a dime away from anyone. He is paid, willingly, by his network who in turn is paid by the sponsors, who willingly give them their money. Because he gets ratings, because people willingly listen to and enjoy his show.

Are you going to provide some proof or should we take your liberal word for it.


Let me guess.......You will be voting for the drug-addicted OBAMA. Hello kettle!
At least Rush is a entertainer and not a drug addict running to be President. Get over yourself please.

Obama is not a drug addict. Yes, he admitted he tried drugs in the past. But that no more makes you a drug-addict than having a few beers makes you an alcoholic.

It's called making a point. Geesh.
If the left here can call Rush a drug addict for taking oxycontin in the past, I can call Obama a drug addict for taking coc aine in the past. Got it! Plus, it's even worse for Obama since he used an illegal drug while Rush used a prescribed drug.

You are trying to split a very fine hair there. While oxy is a legal, prescription drug, Limbaugh was using it in an illegal manner and obtaining it illegally.

the drug he admited to using cocain. is one of the most addictive substances on the planet. once used the desire never leaves. sure some have the will to stop, but put it in front of them and watch what happens.
obama is a drug addict in the same way rush is...

Prescribed? You are joking, right? The issue was he was illegally having the pills imported from our amigos in Mexico. If his oxycontin was prescribed to him it never would have been the issue. Did you think it became news only because he USED oxy?

He's a fat druggie who took the day off today. Way to go Rush!

I wonder if they are paying him in Howard Stern Bucks. If they are paying him on a cash basis, I have to say he must be worth it to someone.

Anyway, when you call Obama a drug addict, he is an admitted drug addict because he smokes and it is no secret.

Turnabout is fair play. This is a war of ideology. He made the rules; I'm using those same rules against him.


It is a very childish mentality to think just because you believe someone has done something wrong that it gives you carte blanche.


As I said, I didn't make the rules. Rush did.


Plus, you are making a charge he is not only doing something illegal, but something particularly heinous.

Except Rush broke the law.

His Viagra was prescribed in someone else's name, which means he went to great lengths to conceal his use of the drug.

Were his trip a legitimate booty call he could surely have just gone to his doctor and had it prescribed properly, yes?

Surely, someone with his resources doesn't need to resort to illegal means to acquire a prescription drug?

If what he was doing there was all perfectly above board, he had no reason the break the law in obtaining his Viagra.

"If you've done nothing wrong you have nothing to hide". Isn't that the same standard Rush has applied to the likes of Bill Clinton, Webb Hubbell, Hillary, pretty much the entire Muslim population, etc. etc. etc.? Why is Rush Limbaugh allowed to throw out accusations and call for investigations and punishment for people who, at the time, had not clearly been shown to violate any law, when he himself DOES violate the law (at least twice now, with Oxycontin and Viagra)? Am I not justified in calling for investigations into his actions? Why does Rush get a pass?


But I guess when you hate someone, you are all-too-willing to believe the worst about them, beyond all reason and logic.


Reason and logic, tempered with a belief in fair play, dictate my actions. Rush plays by a different set of rules. Therefore I find logical justification in using his rules against him.

Ok, so what?
My point is that by using the same standards here in this thread, Obama is also a drug addict. It's even worse because coc aine is illegal and he chose to do so because he liked to party. Unlike Rush who got addicted because he had back problems.

You mean ex-druggie. Using this thread logic, Obama is a Presidencial druggie.

Yes, he is an admitted drug addict of coc aine. I'm glad you want to elect a drug addict. The big difference is Rush got addicted because he had back problems while Obama just wanted to party.

Untrue. That is an urban myth. If that were true, coc aine would not be used in medicine as a topical anasthetic.

In reality, the chance of becoming addicted to coc aine within the first two years of use is 5%:


According to estimates from the National Comorbidity Surveys of the early 1990s (NCS), when the NCS study sample has been restricted to individuals who have just started to use coc aine, the estimated risk of becoming a case of coc aine dependence is about 5% per year for the first 1–2 years after first use.

I'm just wondering how many of the liberals on here who claim Rush is a hypocrite, drug-addict etc. came to Bill Clinton's defense when people called him a hypocrite, sex-addict etc. I'm guessing more than a few.

I'm not a huge fan of Rush's but I do listen on occasion and, more often than not, he makes some valid points which tend to make people on the left a little antsy.

People make mistakes. The animosity towards him I've read on here has little to do with the man than it does with his political affiliation and yearly salary IMO.

There's absolutely no reason to make unfounded accusations such as Rush being a child molester. What a bunch of tripe and grasping at straws! If I were him and read that accusation, I might consider legal action.

Here are a few examples on the left of upstanding public servants that have done the same things or similar things you accuse Rush of and, in fairness, that he has admitted doing: Obama-drug user, Al Gore-made the false claim of being the inventor of the Internet and, of course, the ever present global warming argument (hypocrite deluxe on that one), Bill Clinton-liar extraordinaire, sex addict yada, yada, yada and the list goes on.

It works both ways. If you're going to round up one person and crucify him for certain things, round up the whole bunch.

I say good for Rush for attaining what most of us only dream of attaining.

I find it disgusting that someone like Rush is the #1 talk radio show.

It just shows - sadly - how many SHEEP there really are in America.


. . . . and yes I have listened to him. I don't believe in having an opinion on what I have not experienced.

Unlike my husband's uncle who quotes Rush daily. When asked about Michael Moore's movie 911 had all kinds of negative opinions. But when asked if he had seen it - responded "I would never watch that trash".

Why should any of you here even care how much money Rush makes?
I'm sure given the same opportunity, you would take the money.
Do you also have a problem and hate all the others personalities who make millions such as actors and sports figures? What about if the person is an extreme leftist like George Soros? Do you hate him also because of the money?

I absolutely love all ATS's left-wing propagandists coming out of the wood work and foaming at the mouth over this. You can really tell who the DNC loyalists and propaganda agents are by looking at the responses.

It just enrages them that someone who disagrees with them not only does so, but gets paid well to do it. Its a free market, if he wasn't drawing in the revenue he wouldn't get paid this much. It doesn't impact you, except in your prideful arrogance and hatred of those who disagree with you. The democrat partisan hacks on ATS are just priceless.

All the liberal sheep are upset that their attempt at bigotry and hatred (Air America) was a miserable failure.
Really guys, its OK, you've got the bigotry and propaganda markets on the internet covered. Let the RNC have the radio.

There is nothing funnier than watching the left-wing ATS partisan hacks getting upset over ANOTHER partisan hack, just because he doesn't fit their ideology.

If you find it disgusting then don't listen. Simple really.

More like it shows how many people there are who think clearly, realistically and honestly. People like yourself have it backwards. People listen to Rush because he expresses their views and thoughts and NOT because they are waiting on someone to tell them what to think and believe, unlike yourself.
It's funny because you are actually the brainwashed individual who need to be told how and what to think.
You just can't wait to get them liberal talking points.
