I just got an email from the DNC that basically states:

We need you to come up with a slogan, in ten words or less, that we'll put on a billboard where [Rush] can't miss it -- in his hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida.


Wow, what a freaking diversion. My blood is boiling. Why in god's green earth is the DN freaking C wasting such time, money and energy on this guy? He is a radio pundit for crying out loud! His JOB is to say extremist stuff to rile up what is left of his base! THAT IS WHAT HE GETS PAID TO DO!

Look, I may not like the guy, but he has every right to use the 1st Amendment whichever way he likes. If it helps keep the current administration in check just as certain leftist pundits tried to do for Bush, then so be it.

- The economy is in shambles, we are in a depression, banks are insolvent, and the automakers as well as other businesses are going bankrupt.
- FDIC may not be able to cover all bank failures this year.
- Drought conditions are emerging on the west coast, Texas, southeast and parts of the north.
- Civil war is erupting in Mexico and spilling over the borders.

Oh, but we have to build a billboard to throw a one-liner at a radio pundit????????


I am normally rather calm and level-headed but this is absolutely incredible. FOCUS PEOPLE. This is a VERY important phase of American history and we the people must stay very focused on the state of affairs in our country. Don't let this 'divide and conquer' tactic work. Ignore the blow-hard, ignore the Democrats who are playing into Rush's hand, keep your eye on the prize - and that is liberty.

And don't forget, he's also a hypocritical narcotics junkie too, ha. I use to listen to the guy a long time ago until I realized be sounds like a broken record.

Thank God there is no hate from the left. The posts on this thread speak of understanding and compassion.
I'm also very thankful that so far only Rush Limbaugh has ever had a drug problem. Wouldn't it be horrible if we had a President of the United States that ever did drugs?

C'mon people, a few posts here complain about that hate that Rush spews yet all I see is hate here.

It absolutely drives me crazy to hear the way concervatives are viewed. The liberal's sit there and say how tolerant they are and how reserved and calm they are. They never say anything bad. Give me a break
I have tried to listen to the left wing radio stations (who do nothing but say hateful things 24 hours a day) and so-called news stations MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and others. They lie all the time, twist things. Just like what Rush said about wanting Obama to fail. He wants him to fail if it is going to lead this country to Socalism and ultimately Communism. I want him to fail too if that is what it means. Open your eyes people, most of you do not know what was put in office. You do not see how the media twisted things and made sure that the obsolute worst conservative candidate was put up for the Rebublicans.

Think about a couple of things.
1) The economy was doing pretty good until hmmm 2006 when Oh the Dems took over the congress and senate.
2) The media has suddenly stopped talking about and giving daily death tolls in Iraq. That it was clear Obama was going to win.
3) The liberal media told you nothing of this man. Never asked him a hard question.
4) Dems do not throw there own people under the bus. Look at Rangle Head of ways and means ( I didn't know I had to pay taxes), Geithner - head of the treasury - Tax cheat, Jefferson (you know the guy during Katrina that made rescue workers go to house and get his illigal money out of his freezer) Still there. It goes on and on.

I really hate how the both the Dems and the Repub. play these games.
What I do know is we are going to be very much like Venezuela very soon. Wake up people. Obama is bad news. He is going to destroy this country. His goal and the goal of the Dems is to make everyone dependant on the government so they can completely control us.

Yes Rush is a turd. But he does not speak for the GOP, nor is he the leader of the Republican Party. That would be like saying Bill Maher is the new head of the democrat party.

I find it a roll on the floor laugh at every one who is putting a serious ear to Rush or any one in the media that has the answers to our problems in our country right now. I do how ever love the fact the the Republican and Democratic party have shown their hands now. They are BOTH frauds they have both put this country right where we are with years and years of failed economic policys. And I say to all you who re-fuse to try a "change" at the polling booth and not vote for a third party "I TOLD YA SO!" The mess your country is in is your fault if you cast a vote for anyone with a R or D beside their name so suck it up and take your medicine. Cause now the people who have been wanting real change by warning you that following media figure heads like Rush and Stewart and blindly voting for the same 2 parties is not going to do any thing for this country.....Reap the rewards now smart guys as your 401k melt to nothing and your homes become worth less that the lumber they were built with...It's all your fault and the ones who were smart enough not to vote the 2 party good ole boy system get to point our fingers and laugh.

Those who spew hate deserve to get it back. The thread is not aimed at conservatives in general, but rather at Limbaugh and people like him (Ann Coulter, Sean Hannitry, Gordon Liddy) who make their living encouraging people to hate and be contemptuous of ALL liberals. Many of you have no idea of how far they've dragged this country down because you're not old enough.

30/40 years ago, we didn't have this kind of ABSOLUTE INTOLERANT HATRED. Unfortunately, Coulter, Limbaugh, Liddy, Hannity, etc., found there was a good market for it -- one that could make them rich and famous. And the found the more angry and insulting they were, they more they labeled, the more they ridiculed, the more they distorted, their audience never challenged them and they just got more rich and famous.

It's too bad there's an audience for this kind of stuff.

I have heard Rush Limbaugh speak.

I have heard Barack Obama speak.

Can't help but say - Rush makes more sense and seems more honest than Obama could hope to be.

Call Limbaugh full of hatred, a racist, a yob - BUT - in comparison to the liberal messiah of Obama - he rises head and shoulders above in regards to intelligence, experience and honesty.

He's no Ron Paul, but at least he's no Al Franken.

Good post for finding people with similar opinions. If any lies that Rush has been spewing could be documented that would be great. I like being able to see the facts, you know. I've always thought that Rush was very self opinionated, but I haven't heard about any flagrant outright lies here recently. I would figure the White House would have held a press conference to inform the public of any lies he has said within the last 6 months. Should have just ran a poll if you wanted peoples opinions. Pretty harsh though hammering on the guy for being overweight, if you are going to discredit someone you should do it on substance and not in the means of a third grader. Calling the guy fat in the OP and then stating the reasons why you dislike him seems pretty hypocritical. Sounds like you have been listening to too much Rush yourself.

My political leaning is far socialist Left. However: personaly attacking Rush is not productive. The majority of Americans are overweight. To digress for a second, there is something horribly wrong with the 'food' in this country, and I'm going to make a thread about it. I myself, do not hate Rush Limbaugh, but I DESPISE the corporate legal policies in place, that allow right wing hate rhetoric to own AM radio. For every right wing talk show, there should be a left wing talk show. Thats all.

I could not agree more. I think it is important for people to post where possible and respond to the DNC telling them that this is immature, idiotic and not where we want their attention seems crazy that they don't get that in the midst of an economic crisis, but there are idiots on both sides of the political fence that are choosing to prioritize political partisanship and games over the well being of the country.

AND...lets be clear..If President Obama is anything he is someone who does not enjoy this kind of political BS...this is the DNC and he needs to slap them down.

Can I safely assume that you would also agree to an overall media 'balance'? Why stop at AM talk radio, lets have complete balance in Television and Newspapers. But that will never happen because the liberals are just fine with those setups.
AM radio is an open market and dominated by conservatives only because that's what the listeners want.

so if the GOP elects someone whos black to the head of the party, they are only doing it because obama is black.. if they didnt do it, those same people would scream RACISM. its hilarious

talking about hypocrisy

you mean the hypocricy of Obama saying all people should pay taxes when half of his cabinet hasnt?

i thought so

if you listened to even one minute of limbaughs CPAC speech you would have heard the truth, no matter whos mouth it came from

Hey... duhhh. Hows about that fatty Michael Moore leading the Democrat party in their war against trans fats when he himself is so fat. What a hypocrite. Since he's there leader ah reckon all democrats are fat hypocrites. Can't argue with that logic can ya?

Leftist's view of a Republican stereotype.

This letter was sent to me by a white conservative male from the south (where, by the way there are no, nor have there ever been any racist democrats... wink, wink.)

He can't seem to tell the difference between ratings grabbing sensationalism and politics. Granted, during the campaigns there is quite a bit of blurring between the two, but as far as I know Rush hasn't run for any political office. He is most certainly not the minority party leader. Michael Steele holds that position, and is a very reasonable and able politician. Many demcrats don't know that, and if I thought like democrats, I'd probably say it's because he's black. Just like they weren't aware of it when republicans nominated Alan Keyes for president, a black man whom Rush openly supported. Anyway, I'm getting off topic.

These people are there to get us worked up agaings each other while they're grabbing our wallets. I can't stand Keith Olbermann or Michael Moore, but I love Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. I just don't make these guys into templates for how I view all people on the left.

Take a deep breath and look for the people who are directly destroying your way of life before starting threads like this.

But you all are listening to him!And so are others.

After all you say is said and done he is a radio personality whose job is to attract listeners.

That is what he is paid big bucks to do.

The fact that he and his politics is even being discussed on this forum is proof that he does his job well.

And what is exactly wrong with political dissent?

We as a democracy must have individuals who do not agree with those in power.

If we silence them as you all suggest we will be no better than Cuba.

Or is that your agenda?

I feel so sorry for those members who are stuck with such ancient technology. You know, the kind of radios that have no tuning knob or on-off switch. They are forced to listen to Rush Limbaugh every day!

These type of threads pop up every couple of months. Hate filled rants, calling Rush's broadcasts hate filled. What's that called again? Hypocrisy?

That was an amzing example of sound with no substance. No...really...did you say ANYTHING of value in that post or did you simply spew all over your computer?

Let me throw out some pointers...

1. Is Rush being the head of the GOP bad? If so why? Provide examples of failed ideas.

2. Is his popularity upsetting you because 20,000,000 people listen to him and 20 people listened to Air America?

3. Rush makes more money getting up in the morning to poo then most people do in a week. The ONLY way that happens is he provides value to people willing to pay his outrageous ad costs. He does not steal. So are you jelous of his Money?

Simple ideas for the next time you want to vent.

Yet more evidence of people being outraged at what the media tells them to be outraged about.

Your interest in these people, either pro or anti, just puts more money in their pockets.

Wise up to the bigger agenda. Think independently.

posted on Mar, 5 2009 @ 02:26 PM
"can't people think independently?" is right on the money in my book. I guess now our elected officials are also responsible for protecting the ears of the public from hearing any view that doesn't go with the flow. I don't agree with a lot of things that Rush says just like I don't agree with a lot of the things Bill Maher says. I don't see much of a difference between the two myself, they both represent the extreme point of views on different ends of the spectrum. All it is a smokescreen in my opinion.

posted on Mar, 5 2009 @ 02:46 PM
whatever rush limboughs views are and no matter how hypocroes they are he is indeed just an entertainer ...he sits in his studio and talks -what possible influence does he have on world happenings or internal antional happenings? sure he might put some people of the truth but is he the only source of news that they can get?

posted on Mar, 5 2009 @ 02:48 PM
What do you mean think for ourselves?

The Democrats said he was head of the GOP so it must be true, right? The day after they said it Rush bashers were flooding this site regurgitating those exact words.

But it is the conservatives who follow blindly because we question whether the President is doing a good job.

The Liberals are wide awake and follow knowingly that the DNC is shifting the focus off of the President with these type of attacks. Without the spotlight shining as heavy on him he is able to say anything he wants and not lie as much.

The biggest spending bill in history was signed a few days ago and more people wanted to discredit Rush then they did this bill. Alot of Liberals defend it saying its Bush's fault we are in this mess. I agree he had a hand in it, but why make it worse? Just because it was failing when he "inherited" it doesn't mean he gets a free pass if he destroys it.

Obama trying to negotiate a deal with Russia that makes us look weak happened this week, that story got throughly thrashed by the Rush threads. Not very many people got involved in that thread. To busy wondering what snappy new nickname the Presidential administration was going to come up with for Rush I imagine.

President Obama has spent more money in his first 2 months or so then the cost of Katrina, Iraq and Afghanistan combined. Yet we gather around our keyboards and giggle at how cleverly someone insulted Rush and those who enjoy his broadcast. Not much fuss being raised about President Obamas spending spree.

All of this happening and you want to complain about Rush? I think you should step back and think your priorities through.
