Actually it does make him intelligent and worthy of listening to. He can read lefties like a book.

Remember the Paul Wellstone fiasco? Taking advantage of a crisis (Rahm Emmanuel), or taking advantage of the death of a Senator is SOP for Democrats. The only thing is that it usually backfires on them.

Dead on the mark! The lefties deriding Rush for predicting:

1) Teddy dying before Obamacare is passed.
2) The Democrats attempting to take advantage of Teddy's death before his corpse is in the ground by renaming the failing Obamacare to Teddycare.

Just another failed Democratic agenda to place in their Book of Shame.

Good prediction, Rush!

Don't forget, now that it's named Teddycare, when it fails it won't be blamed on Obama anymore!

As for Rush, the guy takes a LOT of crap for what he does. I don't think he deserves it, and I find it funny that someone in this thread mentioned "caricature" in a description of Rush as a negative, because the left has been portraying him in their own way for so long, that for someone who's never actually taken the time to listen to him, their view of him would actually be the caricature.

I am a "lefty," but listen, lets give Limbaugh credit where credit is due...he isn't falling for the "Kennedy was a god" fiasco, and is actually telling the truth about hows Dems are using him for self-gain. Rush, I give ya a

“And sadly, Senator Kennedy now becomes a pawn. His death becomes something they can use to facilitate a political aim.”

Couple that argument with his statement from earlier this year that the health-care bill wouldn't be passed while Ted Kennedy was alive, and your have yourself a prime situation for every overzealous Obama supporter to argue that Limbaugh's views stem from ignorance. While they often do, in this case, Rush is right.

The fact that Barack Obama is delivering the eulogy lends further credence to Limbaugh's theory. Obama loves the camera, and he isn't going to let such a high-profile event pass without plugging his health-care bill.

Here's my take on this. You would have thought that the conservatists have a higher moral standard and mannerism compared to the lefties (at least according to them). But by looking at their behaviors and actions so far, I have to say that is simply not the case.

Typical mantra of the populace who decries the opposition when and if they don't abide by their idealogical goals.. whether self professed or else laid upon them by the SOCIALIST left.

This from a group who WILL not and outright REFUSES to throw the B/S flag when one of their own is caught read handed in GRAFT and CORRUPTION charges.

Cry me a river. Ted Kennedy screwed this country HARD... and your side idolizes this decaying chunk of human filth.

Well of course many people are going to remember Ted Kennedy as the man who fought so hard for so many years to bring about health care reform. It's only fitting to name the bill after him, if that's what will actually happen.

That's one among a hundred reasons why he's being mourned.

Everyone knew Kennedy had cancer. It was a no-brainer for Rush to predict his death, or to predict that health care reform legislation was going to take time. Well Duh.

No offense but if I'm gonna side with anyone on this between Kennedy and rush Limbaugh...its gonna be Limbaugh. I don't see why people take so much offense to these radio and tv show hosts for just stating political opinions (and probably calling it news).

Limbaugh may be a loud and annoying host but at least he wasn't one of many corrupt politicians like Teddy. Limbaugh also didnt kill his mistress and let her drown in a lake after crashing drunk.

Why go against someone who it sounds like is trying to do you a favor by not wanting this bill passed?

How many "god i love obama" t-shirts do you have?

He's congratulating himself...?

Congratulating for what! That a man is dead?

For all of the people on here who have been saying bad things about Kennedy and are now backing Limbaugh, I honestly laugh.

Limbaugh is a freak for doing such a thing!

Typical Limbaugh detractor, you don't have a clue at all. Do you?

All Limbaugh had to do is look at previous Democrat history, like the Paul Wellstone fiasco, to make this obvious prediction. He predicted TeddyCare over a year ago, and the predictable Democrats are going to go for it.

Limbaugh was not celebrating the Swimmers death, he was pointing out the obvious.

No, he was giving himself, as the article states, kudos that he was right on it. That's disgusting.

Nothing is sacred anymore, is it?

If a person dies, it's time to tarnish their name.

And I'm not just saying for only democrats. It seems with everything, there's just a rush to slander and defame no matter the cost...

Typical ditto head.
No shame or class, or respect. Only more hate and bigotry.
Believe whatever this dopehead tells you! Smart, very smart!
No wonder its the party of "no". As in 'just say no"!

Maybe he'll become president amd make everyone happy!
Yah....could happen!
He could get palin signed up too, shes not doing too much now.
Since he's already your loser party leader, its the next logical step!
I am sure the country's problems will be solved immediately too!

She could teach him how to be a quitter!
This just gets better and better! Thanks for the laugh!
And this is the best candidate with all the ideas you guys got?

Shame on you disrespectfull ditto*heads. Grow up and get some class.
Limpbaugh is a swine. And thats being nice.

Edit to be nice....

Wonder if the Rush prediction will come true............

"Honor Ted Kennedy by putting his picture on the $100,000 bill. With hyperliberal policies, we're going to end up with hyperinflation."

The way Mr. Obama is going it's not going to be much longer before we need bigger bills.

Ted Kennedy was gonna die whether Rush made a prediction or not.

He's not congratulating himself for killing him. It's for what would happen when he dies. I don't see the big deal.

Can you really not see the difference. If not, your hate for Limbaugh has you blind.

I actually find it strange how right Rush was about this. Almost makes me think he may have some inside info, If you know what I mean.

Or maybe the Dems heard him and thought that's one hell of an idea.

For some reason, I thought Rush Limbaugh would not say much about
Senator Kennedy after his death because he made so much fun of his
personal life over the years. (i.e. Ted "Hiccup!" Kennedy)

Rush should have been respectful (and a least a little embarassed of
his past actions) for a few days anyways.
