    WRONG Scotty! Yesteray I heard conservative talk show host Lars Larson saying that it might be a good idea if we went over the fiscal cliff…because maybe it would wake people up to what a horrible mistake they made when they re-elected Barack Obama.

    And that wasn’t the first or only time I heard that sentiment expressed by a rhgit-winger

    @Ms. Ima

    Yep, just look at the way they herd protestors into ‘Free Speech Zones’ so they can’t be heard by the President

    Oh? That was Bush?

    And the Conservatives +cheered* when he did that?

    Sorry…my bad.

    Liberals LOVE to tell other people to SHUT UP! They don’t have any other power but to try to take away free speech from others.

    I didn’t realize Bill O’Reilly is considered a liberal.

    Mr. Limbaugh calls himself an entertainer but his words make people who believe him write letters and call legislators. Rush is to his conservative listeners, equivalent to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to their listeners. We can debate their various levels of “truthiness”, but the point is, they are preaching to their individual choirs who have already made up their minds. I do not like Rush Limbaugh and have sent emails to some of his sponsors. We can vote with our wallets. I don’t buy Brawny paper towels for instance, because they are produced by the Koch brothers
    Perhaps, Mr. Limbaugh will one day be properly sued for libel of slander, but until that day, his first amendment rights must be tolerated, if not respected, unless we are prepared to have commentators we like silenced as well.
    Change the channel, not the laws.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    “I’m sure we can all believe Rush wants the world to end. (rolling eyes).”

    Two thoughts: one is that many posters are willing to believe that Mr. Obama is trying to destroy the country/the world/the universe. I will be willing to accept the fact that no one really tries to make things worse. I will also submit that this line of thinking (that the other guy is out to blow up the world) is why we can’t find any common ground regarding, well, anything.

    The other is to wonder whether I have to remind you that Rush’s first show after the 2008 election was based on one theme that he actually stated: “I hope he fails.” And that’s what his Republican followers have been trying to do for five years now, regardless of consequences.

    I will be the first to admit that I was sure that Dubya would be a very bad president, and failure would be his legacy. However, I never wished for it; instead, I wished (but my wish was not granted) that my assessment was incorrect. There is a difference.

    As to Mr. Obama not pronouncing names right: if this is his worst sin, he’s a better man than most of us. I only have 4 letters in my last name, and people butcher it all the time. Doesn’t mean I hate them for it.

    As for mentioning the name of the country, it’s easier to attract bees with honey than with vinegar. How would we like it if a head of state called our country the Confederate States of America? (This question not applicable in South Carolina or Texas.) While I agree we have not chosen to call it Myanmar, they certainly have, and to call it Burma is the same as going to Istanbul and calling it Constantinople, which I personally like better.

    And remember, Mr. GHW Bush threw up on the Japanese president. We’re all human, and we have human failures.

    There’s plenty to be legitimately unhappy about in the Obama administration. I find it almost comical how people ignore the festering problems and pick at little nits.

    Rush earns $50 million per year by saying inflammatory things that keep his audience tuned in and listening to his advertisers. Explaining his behavior is that simple.

    He may or may not believe what he is saying, just like a lot of other entertainers. But it keeps the money rolling in.

    “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, basically saying that all wanted criminals are black people on his radio show in the early 1990s

    “Look it, let me put it to you this way. The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, making a racist comment, January 19, 2007

    .
    “You just gotta be who you are, and I think it’s time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call ‘em gangs.”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, another racist comment, December 8, 2004

    .
    “From this day forward, somebody propose it, liberals should not be allowed to buy guns. It’s just that simple. Liberals should have their speech controlled and not be allowed to buy guns. I mean if we want to get serious about this, if we want to face this head on, we’re gonna have to openly admit, liberals should not be allowed to buy guns, nor should they be allowed to use computer keyboards or typewriters, word processors or e-mails, and they should have their speech controlled. If we did those three or four things, I can’t tell you what a sane, calm, civil, fun-loving society we would have. Take guns out of the possession, out of the hands of liberals, take their typewriters and their keyboards away from ‘em, don’t let ‘em anywhere near a gun, and control their speech. You would wipe out 90% of the crime, 85 to 95% of the hate, and a hundred percent of the lies from society.”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show, January 2011

    .
    “The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, advocating for blowing up the world.

    The primary difference between Rush, and folks like Jon Stewart, and Steven Colbert, is the fact that Stewart and Colbert are COMEDIANS, and they both are proud of it, and don’t really think anyone takes them seriously as a source of realistic news!
    Rush, on the other hand, is merely a self-delusional IDIOT, who thinks people really believe that he actually knows what the HELL he’s babbling about!
