Dems launch online petition

I don't think I'm allowed to post the link to an online petition.
However, there is a link available at the news story.

Democrats have launched an online petition against Rush Limbaugh.

Hey .. I don't like the guy either .. but their petition was wrong. This is what it says -


Last week, Rush Limbaugh actually said that he "hopes" President Obama fails to meet America’s challenges.


What Rush said was that he doesn't want Obama's policies to be a success because they would be bad for America.

Those are two different things.

Obama said -


You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.


My translation - 'you can't listen to Rush Limbaugh or else you may have questions and I won't be able to plow this pork-filled non-stimulus stimulus package through. Then I'll not look so great in my first 100 days of being POTUS.'


Seriously. I don't like Rush either. But what the petition says isn't true.

Aren't those two different things as well?


I can't stand the blow hard either and it has nothing to do with his politics.

You are old school enough to at lest search the first page for this story.

/Thread closed.

Ok that didn't work but there is another thread open where I have dispensed my wisdom on this matter.

How does listening to Rush Limbaugh and not taking part in Obama's economic stimulus package have anything to do with each other?

BTW, Limbaugh is an idiot IMO. Did you see what he said about wanting Obama to fail? I understand if you don't like him but I can't understand why anyone would want Obama to fail.

Just goes to show you... Democrats are for freedom of speech when it supports their agenda. But when it opposes their agenda they move quickly to stifle it. So much for their oath to uphold the Constitution.

rush should have been arrested for buying thousands of dollars worth of illegal drugs and using his maid as the drug buyer. but of course the republicans still listen to him and respect him, and he recieved an even bigger contract to stay on the radio. he says publicly, he wants the president of the united states to fail...obviously saying that, he wants the country to fail, since the majority of the country's citizens voted for him, and the majority of the country voted for even more democrats to be put in the congress. but he's got his money, and he obviously doesn't care what happens to the regular people in this country. what a disgusting piece of trash he is. how can a person with a I.Q. over 60 defend him, by the way he talks down to the majority of this country.

Well I dislike Rush Limbaugh because I see him as a hypocrite. Here's a quote from Rush 2 days after Kurt Cobain's body was found...

"Kurt Cobain was, ladies and gentleman, I just--he was a worthless shred of human debris..." (TV show, 4/11/94)

Rush said these things in the context that Cobain was a "drug addict".

Almost 10 years later...

On October 3, 2003 Limbaugh was being investigated for illegally obtaining the prescription drugs oxycodone and hydrocodone. Other news outlets quickly confirmed the investigation. He admitted to listeners on his radio show on October 10 that he was addicted to prescription painkillers.

This is just one in many examples why Rush is a hypocrite, according to Rush's own way of thinking, he himself is a "worthless shred of human debris". I have yet to hear him say that about himself, wonder why.

IF you read what he said in context.....

paraphrasing " If BHO want's to push thru socialist programs, then I hope he fails because they will not be good for the country"

It was not a blanket statement slamming anyting BHO does.

yup, i hope the democrats oppose everything the republicans want. the republicans had their chance and have practically destroyed this country. now a democrat has to come in and try and repair all the damage the republicans have done...war, financial meltdown, lost jobs, lower pay, hundreds of billions in tax breaks to the wealthy, spying on innocent americans, katrina, more people with no heathcare. i won't vote for a republican again. they are just mean, nasty, and don't give a d*mn about the average american.

I rest my case...

The above quote pretty much sums it all up. Oh, and by the way, didn't we have a DEMOCRATIC run Congress for 2007 and 2008, you know, the one that dove to an all-time low approval rating of 11%??? Yeah, um alot of good THAT did the country, right?

I was reading between the lines. It's pretty transparent. Obama doesn't want people to listen to RUSH because it will cause waves for him and Obama wants this stimulus package to go through without problems.

Do you see no difference between addiction to recreational drugs, and addiction to legal medications(that are highly addictive) that were being used to treat a legitimate condition?

If Obama pushes for a socialist America then I hope he fails too. It would be a win for America. If he does the right things " which I haven't seen yet " then I'm all for it. Rush has his set ways and his ways aren't the best either but for the Democrats to take what he said out of context and try to deny him " freedom of speech " is wrong too. We as the people have a right to say these things and to be against a President if we think he's doing things wrong. I'm for all of us speaking up against socialism, freedoms etc...

The Dems have always been against Rush and that will never change. But I'll be the first to speak up if they try to kick him or anyone else off the airways. The Dem's need to quit worrying about Talk show hosts and start worrying about this country.

Actually he has said this...

"I am hearing many Republicans say that — well, we want him to succeed and prominent Republicans," Limbaugh had said. "Yes, we wanted — they have laid down. They have totally — they're drinking the Kool-Aid, too."
rawstory.com...

Do you still think that he isn't partisan and that he DOESN'T want Obama to fail?

There is a video in the article with the quote in question where he says he wants Obama to fail.

Here it is in context......

www.rushlimbaugh.com...

Here it is in context......

He's been saying it everyday.

" I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don't want them to succeed."

And he's right....socialist agenda full steam ahead....

So it seems like you're taking what he says only at face value. What he really means is that since he is as partisan as he is, he wants Obama to fail, because he doesn't like his political ideology.

Please. Rush Limbaugh is a drug addled fool who makes his bones by pandering to the ignorant 20% of America. And he flat out said he wants Obama to fail....period. I HATE George Bush but I was behind him 100% for the first 18 months of his Presidency until he started the Iraq War and drove this country into a ditch. Rush is the kind of guy who would be happy to watch America burn if it would get more Republicans elected in 2010. People that listen to him are suckers.

As far as I see it, Rush has the right as an american citizen to voice out his opinions, no matter howmuch of a lie it is.

As for this claim that "Rush asks questions Obama cant answer"... well rush never asks questions, the man spreads neo-con propaganda and thats it.. He asks suggestive questions then gives the answers himself to suit his lies... not really a questions flyers


And yes.... I am very dissappointed at the few of the liberals who put this up.... its unconstitutional... however of a sleezeball liar the man is.

So much for not painting the "THEIRS" with a single stroke


I'm one of them and I could give half a chicken of what RUSH says.
I hope RUSH keeps it up, because the rabid, logic free ideology is what won OBAMA his position in the first place. America is tired of the hate speak and division, very much akin to a spoilt child.

The longer this obnoxious extremism is maintained, the sooner it will become background noise only 2 peter out. I say RUSH should go full balls and continue with the digging.

Some DEMS are reactionary, just like yalls. Were all people illegibly...
