So the left needs Rush, it keeps the whole right wing nutty enough to make fun of, but unified enough to still be a pain in the ass to everyone.





Agree...but is Rush just articulating what the far-right thinks...or is the far-right apeing Rush?

Otherwise...Rush might be a nut-job...but he is not the only one....more like the spokesman for wacko-hate alliance.

I personally believe that liberals NEED Rush.



Well, for once we agree on something....not for the same reasons but hey....

Liberals need Rush as he is a thorn in their side, he has a huge listening audience,
all by free will. As I said earlier, there are no automatic radio switches controlled by
Republicans in the Congress forcing people to listen to him.

If he did not have an audience, he would fail.

Now....talk about fail, that is what is happening to Obama.
Maybe Obama does not really care that his ratings are in the toilet.
Maybe Obama does not really care that the U.S. is falling apart at the seams.
Maybe....his complaints are just scripted to make it look like he cares a little.

Liberals need Rush, no matter what you say about Rush he finds a way to
drive it home, and people listen, thats why. You know, conversely like Liberals listen to
Howard Stern...that kind of thing.

I am NOT defending OBAMA! keep your eye on the FRISBEE, not the car, cat, squirrel, or anything else in the park.

Pay attention.... these are my original comments, before the off topic trolling.. answers? 7 questions. where am i defending Obama?

Oh, not attacking a puppet? --- that's defending I guess. not stepping back and looking big picture .. Darn me, where is my fishbowl to look at the world through,, apparently it works wonders, along with that ostrich neck,

What would Obama have to worry about? I mean really?

does he have a job to worry about after Prez?

pretty sure being Potus scratches off the whole bucket list.. Hate him if you want.. what's that prove?

that you are short sighted to the big picture and get all spent up over a charade?

that is kinda low brow.


OMG ----> IT is ALL because of Obama.. if it just wasn't for Barrack..

lollipops and gumdrops huh?...and we would all be in this video.. yeah.. that darn Obama..

Did this one zing right over your head ?



“Congress doesn’t have a whole lot of core responsibilities,” Obama said. “One core responsibility is passing a budget, which they have not done yet. The other core responsibility that they’ve got is to pay the bills that they’ve already accrued.”
Huh ?



""“One core responsibility""

""The other core responsibility""

I guess Obama thinks there's only Two core responsibilities eh ?


Is it therefore possible that THIS is His core responsibility ?

Ummm....for a serious answer? Probably the day that the truth is found out.




does he have a job to worry about after Prez?


Nope. He will have the biggest post presidential bill ever handed down,
judging by his conduct in office....no job in sight, he will probably create
his own foundation, much like Bill Clinton, heck he already has Organizing for Aciton.



pretty sure being Potus scratches off the whole bucket list.. Hate him if you want.. what's that prove?


Well, ask Jimmy Carter if he likes his legacy, then will talk about that.
And I dont hate Obama, I pray for him. He did boldly proclaim to
be a devout Christian, so I am sure he appreciates the value of that.



that you are short sighted to the big picture and get all spent up over a charade?


Charade? If only the decline that has taken place in the U.S. was a charade.
Now then, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.



that is kinda low brow.


I take cues from Rush, you should know that by now.

You still don't see it, do you.

You call Obama a puppet, yet Bush wasn't?

Bush was to blame for his presidency and everything that came from it.

Yet when the time came to assign blame to Obama, you and a host of others decided to portray Obama as a victim or a puppet.

Bull.

I'm not going to let you get away with that. Either hold presidents responsible or call yourself a hypocrite.

*tick tock*

Along with WW3 they seem to be pushing at the moment.


My theory?

Some jumped up spark with Daddy issues decided to become a psychologist to understand his or her own screwed up personality...used that training and insight and landed a job advising Obama how he can manipulate Congress into doing what he wants them to do...which is pull the trigger on Syria and then on Iran.

Obama and his head-shrinker henchmen are goading Congress, essentially slapping them around psychologically by saying they are useless, inept, conceited and cowardly and 'can't even do two things properly' (yeah, the USA is going from strength to strength under Mr. Obama...!!!)

It's Congress that takes the USA to war, not Mr. Obama...and that's why he is trying to rile them up and getting them in the 'right' mindset for a fight.

By the way, that Personality defect that thinks the tactic slipped under the radar? He or she needs a swift kick in the backside, the writing isn't just visible on the wall, it's in neon writing!

where, please find my quote where I "blame" bush.

I am stating that the same things Obama "is doing" and getting REAMED by Rush and co.

Set sail under Bush, every last darn thing Obama is acting upon was handed down by Bush.


I say they are all puppets.. But will engage in the charade talk, just to prove that specific point I have made clear already more than once.

It is STUPID, to blame one guy for doing something the previous guy was doing with praise.

beside from the point the whole thing is a charade.. just keep scouring every angle of everything I state, struggle for that little morsel..

then you may feel better. mad about something unrelated to the Op?

Nope as that would make you a one percenter, and the government would take half of it to pay for his new healthcare program.

So, treasonous and traitorous things din NOT happen under Bush.

The point is Rush praised these things when 'Bush did them'..
But now Obama does them.. OH NO... it is now bad.

I explained previously.. but keep grasping and trolling.. that's all you got.,

Stick to the issue.

DOPER/Drug ADDICT being defended by someone sympathetic to dopers... that's rich.

so, answer one of my 7 questions. the Obama blame is as tired as any.. Its so retarded.


here answer these to yourself, I already have the answers.
1. Does Obama have writers and prompters?
2. Do you actually think Obama runs things?
3. Seriously?
4. have you never thought POTUS has become a 'puppet' position.
5. Don't you get that globalists is PLURAL!
6. Do you really believe there aren't people behind the presidents?
7. Have you never considered that the Pres follows orders too?


actually thinking that Obama is behind it.. HILARIOUS!!

what would Bush, McCain, Romney, or anyone do?

what they are TOLD... FFS.

only a RETARD would blame a president., then in other threads admit that there are 'others' spinning the wheel of tyranny.

Perhaps the concept of SCAPEGOAT.. is a new concept to incorporate into that fish bowl.

I never said that, although I treat politicians the same. If they screw up, I hold them accountable.

Kind of like you praising Obama and slamming Bush.


I explained previously.. but keep grasping and trolling.. that's all you got.,


No. You are rude and rather insulting. I just illustrate your bias.

Kay.

Are we still talking about Obama?

Here we go again. Bush bad. Obama, puppet.



what would Bush, McCain, Romney, or anyone do?


Who cares? None of them are currently POTUS.


what they are TOLD... FFS.


Huh?

Um, yes. Please see my previous post that had your two quotes.

I don't watch, read or listen to political news, aside from a very tiny number of threads at ATS (I like social or cultural politics, not national politics) and the occasional stuff that Slashdot ends up with and I only read the main headlines and sometimes. So I'm afraid I can't compete in the who hates which president more fest. But I did have a few thoughts on the last page or two of posts:

1. It is reasonable that talk show hosts (of either side) pick stuff a) in the news and b) highly representative, you might even say a 'condensed symbol' in a way, of the dynamics of current issues. I don't think that necessarily makes their fans (of either side) merely parrots just because they have a similar or same opinion on the same topic.

On the other hand, given the way many "political online debators" communicate, I think the confounding factor is that perhaps many of them weren't the brightest stars in the sky to begin with. The talk show hosts (of either side) are a secondary, not primary, factor in their later communications.


2. I am from the la-la land of midsouthern coastal California, very nearly a Valley Girl teen of the early 80s, and my conversations with the left and right -- initially I was profoundly confused about politics -- were very enlightening because I actually began on the left, or thought I did. I might never would have talked with the conservatives except all my friends and I were at the fair one day when I was 18, and there was the democratic booth with cool music and all these hip people and a big crowd, and the republic booth with a few young men that looked like Mormons standing around in suits. I found it so utterly hilarious that the contrast between these groups was so extreme that -- to the screeching laughter of my friends -- I walked over to talk to the tragically unhip young men in suits. Given that I wandered over there from the democrat booth, and perhaps that I had two-length tri-colored mostly screaming magenta hair, I have to say they were pretty casually welcoming without judgment.


So I asked them a long list of questions about how could they possibly think anything other than ___ about ___ and they were as confused as I was, because it turned out we already agreed on nearly everything. I kept saying, "But no, I'm a liberal, I totally don't like government interference, conservatives are the rich old men who want nothing to change, but I want it to change, I want people to be more free, the way I was taught this country was when I was young!" and they laughed and laughed, and told me liberals were the ones that wanted government everywhere. Years later, I was to realize that my situation was probably like it is said about religion: that people do not believe what the religion says, but rather, they believe that the religion says what they believe. I'd been subtly brainwashed by teachers/media into finding it incomprehensible that I could be a conservative (not being either rich or an old man), so to me, obviously, everything the democrats believed was whatever I innately did. Obviously I hadn't done enough communicating with others about it...

I think it was around then that I got a political flyer in the mail about Michael Dukakis and.... some homely woman whom I cannot recall now. It looked like it was written by an 8 year old with emotional problems. Nearly every line of it was either the sort of thing that wasn't even a fact and sometimes wasn't even sensible, except a couple I was pretty sure were probably completely untrue. I was so horrified by how juvenile and insulting it was I registered promptly as a democrat so I could vote against him. I later reregistered as a republican. Then I decided they were all a bunch of corporate shill evil overlord boneheads so I registered as a libertarian. Then I decided they were all a bunch of drug-obsessed useless whiners (I had not heard of the Pauls then) so I registered as an independent. Then I decided that all senior politics were in fact manipulated at levels that make it completely irrelevant who is in the Big Chair because we're all completely doomed anyway so I quit voting entirely.

I'm thinking of rethinking that for the next election. Not because it will matter. But because I'm sick of people thinking if you didn't vote in the most recent election you have no right to an opinion. Kind of like telling someone they must choose which of two ugly people will rape them, and then telling them they have no right to complain because at least they had a chance to choose, even if their choice didn't win. And if they don't choose saying they have no right to complain which they ended up being raped by, since they'd refused to vest themselves in the process. But if you choose you've agreed to be raped.

I see it as a surreally fake game we all mysteriously play. Anyway...

3. George Bush is guilty of everything. Forever. Once you understand that, the left's logic is clearer.

Holding politicians accountable? that's what I mean. They are ALL puppets! its a charade! ffs

where am I praising Obama? where?

I posted questions, do you have the intestinal fortitude to answer.? NOT ONE out of seven.

Wasting energy blaming a puppet will do what?

prove you are easily distracted and controllable.
