Obama needs to gro a pair and sit down, one on one with Rush. Let them spend 2 or 3 hours debating the issues and let the public decide. This needs to be on television, no commercials, just mano a' mano. I will guarantee that Obama will NOT meet with Rush. (Note to all the Bush Haters. Bush went one on one with several pundits and talking heads. He wasn't afraid of them.)

Then WHY does he? Continually!?



Rush, as far as I know, is not an elected official.


Correct! So why is Obama so determined to demonize a PRIVATE citizen?

How unseemly would it have appeared if Bush White House officials kept going on TV and attacked Keith Olbermann day after day?



Should Obama then, debate every mouthpiece that disagrees with him? What makes Rush so special?


No, just the ones he tries to demonize in public.

What makes Rush special?

Ask Obama!

Yeah, if Obama is too scared to face Sean Hannity, he'd have a nervous breakdown if he had to face Rush.

You are right, the President does NOT have time to go around trying to pick fights with radio show hosts! How stupid can he be?

Unless he just wants a diversion from his destruction of the country.

If President Obama and his administation would stop mentioning him then he wouldn't be in the spotlight as much now would he?

Rush Limbaugh is a talk radio show host.
Barack Obama is the President of the United States.

Fate and Destiny...

They do not dance together!

Did you email that to "Team Obama"?

I think Obama should put up or shut up!

Stepping foot into a political thread here, well anywhere really, is about as pleasurable as stepping into a freshly lain cow pile.

So it's with reluctance that I posit this, which I read on the TMP website. Perhaps Rush's recent diatribes and stinks which he's raising against Obama are little more than win-win situation for both the President and Rush which both keeps the Conservative party firmly in second place, while promoting Rush as a speaker and figurehead of the movement - thus ensuring a greater listening audience to the beleaguered party.




Here’s the duel that Obama and Limbaugh are jointly arranging:

On the one side, the president of the United States: soft-spoken and conciliatory, never angry, always invoking the recession and its victims. This president invokes the language of “responsibility,” and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal: He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette. He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father. Unsurprisingly, women voters trust and admire him.

And for the leader of the Republicans? A man who is aggressive and bombastic, cutting and sarcastic, who dismisses the concerned citizens in network news focus groups as “losers.” With his private plane and his cigars, his history of drug dependency and his personal bulk, not to mention his tangled marital history, Rush is a walking stereotype of self-indulgence – exactly the image that Barack Obama most wants to affix to our philosophy and our party. And we’re cooperating! Those images of crowds of CPACers cheering Rush’s every rancorous word – we’ll be seeing them rebroadcast for a long time. Rush knows what he is doing. The worse conservatives do, the more important Rush becomes as leader of the ardent remnant. The better conservatives succeed, the more we become a broad national governing coalition, the more Rush will be sidelined.

As an Obama supporter (big time during the election), I find the whole Obama-Rush thing to be extraordinarily childish, particularly on Obama's part.

Obama: You're the President. Rush is, comparatively, a nobody. Ignore him and focus on the country. If you do your job, the results will make Rush look like an idiot. Actions speak louder than words.

I would think as am American citizen he has more than an obligation to acknowledge Rush or any other American that wants answers. I would imagine with all the Obamaphiles around the country as well as the Mount Rush-More crowd there would be a pretty hefty audience. There is a lot of America that would like to see how the Obama way is the right way. If Obama is doing what's right then he has nothing to fear. He states his peace, Rush does his. The people make a decision. I would imagine that Rush would like a more formal debate. With no teleprompters, earpieces,etc. Give them both X amount of time to state their case. Many people watched the debates during the election and the people were allowed to make up their mind. With all the turmoil in the U.S. now I would think that the POTUS would be more than happy to show how what he's doing is the proper direction for the country and why. rather than debate a bunch of conservatives one by one. Let the two heavyweights have it out and be done with it.

Last I saw the POTUS was still a federal employee and was accountable to the ones that hired him. To say he has no obligation means that the American people no longer matter. Is that the Obama message I'm supposed to take with me?


We all know it wont happen though. Mt. Rushmore does too. But it is an interesting prospect. Obama is well known to not want to get in the ring with anyone that it is not a slam dunk. Hell, he ducked campaigning in some states because he didn't thin it was with the time if the polls called it too close or it was a no win situation. and that was just the primaries.

Obama can acknowledge Limbaugh's influence, but also think that it's unfortunate. And that he doesn't respect him enough to debate him.
And that this guy is nothing but a divisive mouth who's intentions are bad, and would purely be using the format to help his career. No one would stand to gain but him, for pulling off the stunt. Such a major coup for a radio personality.

If it happened, pbfffft. Same schticks. Soundbites. The reaction, a surprise split along party lines.

Years and years and years of arguing political issues and never once have I thought afterward, "Wow! That was really great and useful!"
There's no point. It's just never-ending bullsh*t, a brick wall, and it does not have any value. Partisan bickering is the most tiresome endeavor a man can follow. No one learns anything. No one changes their mind. Ever. Ever. Ever. Ever. It almost always degenerates into personal attacks, which is maybe where it should be. It's all sh*t talking on the internet. This thread. Every thread like it. After the debate there would be a spike in internet sh*it talking. That would be the payoff. And the one for Rush. Professional, wildly successful, # talker.

I just want to see them get to the bottom of the age old question "Which foreign country is the best for viagra fueled vacations?"

That I would watch.

I like how alot of people who dislikes Rush throws his past drug use in our face, while they have conveinatly forgotten about President Obamas own admitted drug use.

If it discredits someone on a talk radio show, why does it not discredit someone who is President?

the difference is blubber boy said publicly on his show that all drug abusers should go to jail. and what's the deal with U.S. congressmen groveling to a AM talk show host...i'd tell him to shove it, and if he didn't like it, have him run for a seat in congress. apologizing to a radio talk show host, how spineless can you get.

I meant the sex with the Dominican prostitutes/rentboys stuff. And I didn't know Obama had to go to rehab for doing that evil marijuana in which he was addicted.

Yep, he does say that they should go to jail. Do you think if I asked President Obama if drug abusers should be in jail he is going to tell me no?

Thanks for some reasonable remarks from an Obama supporter.

If you are Obama and you've got this plan (he has a plan, right?) and you are confident that it is going to work, why waste your time with this Rush thing? As you say, IF his programs work Obama will be worshipped and Rush will be ignored.

Obama and the democrats have the White House and solid majorities of BOTH houses of Congress. They don't need any republicans to go along with them, and they certainly don't need Rush!

So WHAT is Obama up to?

The only thing that makes sense to me is that Obama & Crew know their plans WON'T work and want a "bogeyman" to blame. They want to say "well, things haven't worked out because Rush and the GOP wanted us to fail, so blame them!"

LOL. That is EXACTLY what Clinton had to do after "joking" that Rush was racist.

"I had learned not to care," he wrote. "I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though. ..."

That little quote came from President Obamas book Dreams From My Father.

If you don't know what blow is, I can learn you. It is coc aine.

Now that you learned that he has done coc aine does it discredit him the way you say Rush's old habit discredits him?

Now please provide a source to your pedophile claim.
