Why don't you call Rush and tell HIM all of that, on his show?
I'm sure he would like to discuss this with you.

I hope he sues Obama for slandering his name.


I agree , it is an expression of free speech to put up the bill board but if I was Rush I would get a chain saw and cut it down !

Is there an Obama law against that too?

Well guys,

Regardless of your belief or alignment it's dangerous when the government rejects any kind of criticism, from wikipedia entries to talk show host Rush Limbaugh's statements. If Obama succeeds and if his policies succeed there won't be an America as any of us knew it to want to hope for anymore. On that note, all of the entries that the DNC is considering posting on the billboard are severely lacking in clever insulting-ness. They've narrowed it down to five entries and they're voting on them now.

* "Americans didn't vote for a Rush to failure"

* "Hope and change cannot be Rush'd"

* "Failure is not an option for America's future"

* "We can fix America, just don't Rush it"

* "Rush: Say yes to America"

www.democrats.org...

I don't think any of them are snarky or biting enough to catch Rush's attention, so in that aspect the DNC is letting themselves down, much to my delight.

There is something seriously wrong with liberals and the liberal mind set.


Brilliant line... so compact and punchy.

I must've written thousands of words on ATS alluding to the same, but you've managed to espouse that entire library into one sentence!



Haha!

And the exquisite irony of that exchange is that Conservatism has actually been identified as a 'condition' that is demonstrable in clinical studies.

I'm not sure I catch your drift here, perhaps you could be more specific. You know how us foreigners often have difficulty with the nuances.

Here's where I'm coming from with my statement. You'll have to forgive me for not providing a precis, but I've got other stuff on the go right now. I'll leave you to do the heavy lifting if you wish to explore it further. Gotta say, though...it sure puts ol' Rush in context:

See:"When Corrections Fail: The persistance of political misperceptions"

"What Makes People Vote Republican?"

"Spiders, Maggots, Politics"

Happy Trails, y'all...

Thanks to Rush, and other commentators that mimic him, the conservatives have embraced ignorance and a rejection of intellect as a virtue.
This is of course no accident.

If you can get people all emotionally worked up and voting with their tempers... or their sense of being slighted in some way... and NOT by actually looking at what the candidates stand for and what they'll do once they hold office, you can manipulate them to stay in office while you suck their wallets dry to give to your wealthy cronies.

And as their economic fortunes grow worse and worse, they'll curse the evil liberals, completely unaware they've been used and cheaply discarded until the next election cycle.

You are actually accussing Rush of doing this and claiming it is wrong?

What the hell did Obama do? He got people worked up and voting with their tempers. The majority of his voters didn't know anything about him. They voted for him because they made the voters angry and scared that if McCain gets elected then we would have a Bush 3 in office.

Guess what? It worked. Now they are sucking our wallets dry.

How much has your tax obligation increased since Obama took office?

They are spending our money. Where do you think the funds for the stimulous bill is going to come from. Its like we have a credit card and the government is using it with our permission. We are going to have to pay it back with interest.

Just because your check isn't smaller right now, doesn't mean they aren't spending our money. We are going to see our taxes increase. You are diusional if you don't think so.

Hey BH, I know this may get lost in the wash, but seriously, can you answer this question?

Now remember, I DO NOT LISTEN TO RUSH, but I want you to answer this....

Why do YOU, a person who claims to be educated and unbiased, take the party line when it comes to twisting words and meanings?

I view Obama's policies as socialist, far reaching, too much gov't and damning to our economy. Therefore, I want those specific policies to fail. NO MATTER WHAT!!!

So can you twist that into me hating America and wanting it to fail?

Please?

As I told you before, the end does not justify the means, BH. You may have got what you wanted in Obama, but you lose credibility when you parrot the words of him and his democratic version of Karl Rove.

Seriously.

-Jason

I'm not delusional. I pay attention to the bills being debated, and the proposed tax changes to pay for the stimulus, and then make up my own mind.

Which is why I'm not frightened about an increase that isn't coming.

And spending money is the only way to jump start the economy.
Republican cries of fiscal responsibility are mindless noise designed to trick the ill informed into backing them. Especially considering Bush gave 8 tax cuts to the top 2% of tax payers and created the biggest deficit in history all with the approval of Congress.

Angus, you sound like you don't read much.

You do know, of course, that it is a FACT, indisputable, that lowering taxes raises revenue. Period. Double period.

So to try and make the relation that Bush lowered taxes, AND the deficit grew out of that.... Well thats just a lie.

So I take it back. Maybe you do read. Maybe you just like lying so that you can cling to party lines?

Please explain, in detail?

I mean, you will never hear a conservative argue that Bush was a fiscal conservative, not a reading, thinking one anyways.

Lowering taxes on the upper brackets does not raise revenue. Trickle down has been disproven time and again. Look at the record defecits under Reagan and Bush 1. They were historic. Until Bush 2 anyway.

I don't cling to party lines because I don't have a party. I vote back and fourth depending on the lesser of two evils. (And yes... they're all evil.)

Nevertheless, Bush is the only president in world history... not just U.S. to lower taxes during wartime. And his spending increased in order to wage those wars. And he did it by borrowing from China. If they decided to call in all of our debt right now, we'd be screwed like you read about.

And speaking of reading, I read a great deal. Unfortunately it's making me old before my time.

Once again, you are proving that your reading comprehension is not at it's best today...

I was pretty clear that I pointed out that REVENUE was increased with the lowering of taxes.

Let's try that one more time....

"Revenue is increased when taxes on the upper crust and corporations are lowered."

I used your words there. The upper-crust thing.

You see, you are arguing about SPENDING increases. I actually agree with you, that Bush was an idiot about spending.

But this does not negate my facts, and you will NEVER be able to debunk those, because they are FACTS.

Once again; FACTS.

Please read this a couple of times friend, so that comprehension can set in.

See me in a year or two when everyones taxes has been raised and lets see if your still okay with the spending.

Hard to believe you think raising taxes only on anyone who makes 250,000 is going to pay for all of this, plus what we owed before hand.

I was not okay with President Bush doing it and I'm not okay with President Obama doing it.

I'm sure you read alot, you just take everything at what it says. You don't sit back and think about what you read.

Look, you strike me as a nice fellow, and I actually am liking you despite your acerbic comments.

At any rate, we can argue until we turn blue about tax cuts raising revenue.
You're not going to be convinced no matter what. Calling something a fact over and over again doesn't make it true, but in the face of such dogmatic determination I'd be insane to give it a go. So I'll let that be. Besides, I'm hungry and I want to go to Taco Bell.

But my original point was that the Right has rejected intellectualism in favor of emotional button pushing. And the media feeds it by asking stupid questions like "which candidate would you rather drink a beer with." I don't want to drink a beer with any of them. I want them to do what's right by the American People.

This is why we have "Joe the Plumber" and Sarah Palin speaking to huge crowds and getting people fired up. They're lightweights, but they appeal to people's lower instincts.

BTW... you can't look at the Republican tax cuts in the past and say that they helped anyone but the 2% who received them.

Peace!

I hope I was able to shed a little lucidity to that otherwise horrific statement you made about preferring Hitler 100 times over Obama. I thought hindisght was supposed to be 20/20?

Anyway, this is ridiculous. Why does anyone take Rush seriously? His only goal in life is to enrich himself by playing at the beliefs of others. He's a shock jock just like Howard Stern or Michael Moore or any other media personality, and as such, why anyone takes him seriously is beyond me.

I don't agree with the DNC doing this because it could backfire, but this doesn't get anywhere near smearing a free citizen. Have any of you ever heard the media industry phrase: "There's no such thing as bad publicity"

Rush is eating this up right now, this is the conflict he loves.

And I just wanted to mention a poster that said


Our universities, institutions, and media are infiltrated with liberals. Major propaganda and bombardment of liberal thought.


I think that's more damming of Conservatism than a jab at liberalism. Could you tell me what industry conservatives have infiltrated?
