Obama's flunkies have backed themselves into a corner. IF they don't have Obama talk with and debate the "leader of the opposition", then Obama is
exposed as a phony. IF they do have Obama debate Rush, then, well, Obama is exposed as a phony.
So I guess Rush IS the de facto leader of the Republican party.
Honestly this challenge doesn't place Obama's entire presidency in jeopardy. I think you are giving too much weight to Rush's opinions and no pun
Who does he think he is anyway?
I would assume the President of the United States would have more to do than take the time to go into a debate with a radio show host trying to prove
a point and earn more cash. If Obama went to debate Rush, it would elevate him to some strange new political/social status far beyond the simple
rabble rousing incendiary radio host he is. He may as well claim the Republican party as his own.
I think it matters as much as if a pissed off Michael Jordan challenged Obama to a basketball game, or an angry Hulk Hogan challenged him to a
wrestling match. Would you expect him to show up? Are we seriously supposed to try and call-out the president for our own personal gain.
What is the purpose of this?
Does it fix the economy?
Help stave off foreclosure?
Change the ever-growing unemployment rate?
It's a distraction and an ego trip.
Rush is a radio host.
A wealthy entertainer that play at being an everyman.
He wants ratings and more money.
If Obama were to actually show up it would be a great disappointment. He would have nothing to prove to any one individual with an ego massive enough
to DEMAND the time of the President for a personal grudge match debate at our dime. I would have expected the same for Bush if he were challenged to a
debate. If Obama shows up to debate him THEN and only THEN will his public standing be in jeopardy in my personal opinion.
I can't believe that anyone would get excited or happy over this stunt but I hope that Obama is smart enough to know not to participate in this
It's life folks, we don't always get what we want no matter how hard we stomp around the room.
