Limbaugh fans are too blinded by hate

  • Follow Letters

Rush Limbaugh, and those who agree with him, are plain stupid.

They do not have the sense to realize we are all on the same ship called the United States. The ship is taking on water and sinking fast. The president, our captain, is trying to keep the ship from sinking by bailing water and repairing the leaks. Instead of closing ranks and providing assistance to the president, Rush Limbaugh and his toady followers are idly standing by criticizing the president's bailing technique and leak repair. They are chanting, "We hope you fail; we hope you fail."

Rush Limbaugh and his chorus of conservative toadies are too hate-filled to realize that if the ship sinks, so do they. They would rather drown than to see a president of color clean up the mess left by their idol George W. Bush.

It's obvious that Kevin doesn't listen to Rush. If he did, he couldn't possibly make such ludicrous comments. Thank you to AC for exposing the mindset of the Pied Piperors.

"Limbaugh praised Obama as

"Limbaugh praised Obama as one of the most gifted politicians he has seen, but said, "It just breaks my heart that he does not use these extraordinary talents and gifts to motivate and inspire the American people to be the best they can be. He's doing just the opposite."..............................."We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are, because we make the mistake of assuming that people know. What they know is largely incorrect, based on the way we're portrayed in pop culture, in the drive-by media, by the Democrat party," "We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence." so palmer these are Limbaughs words....whats the problem????

Rush Limbaugh is an angry
Unpublished

Rush Limbaugh is an angry white man who have been successful by preaching to the choir. He only reaches uneducated white men and their wives, and mostly in the Southeast. His life is that of an unhappy man, who thinks he know it all. And being white in America, thats all one have to think. He has no formal education, but makes millions talking. He can't keep a wife, but talks about family values. He has no children but knows everything about our culture and how to raise kids. He has demonstrated his prejudice against minorities, but white-owned businesses pay for ads and his show is everywhere. It's the rich owners who keep this guy on the air. And who can trust those people about the numbers...and Rush is a convicted abuser of drugs. Wow! Again, a rich white man finding that happiness is not in hate, but finding peace from within. "We" already know this stuff.

How soon they forget. Bush is history and the Dems (led by Obama) still never pass up an opportunity to demonize him. Quit being a hypocrite!

I'm sorry I thought that

I'm sorry I thought that non-violent dissent was permitted in this country. That must only be if you are a member of or are supporting the ideals of the Democratic Party. My Bad! The Constitution is going to hell in a handbasket.

Does anybody remember Reid

Does anybody remember Reid (current Senate Majority Leader) saying the war in Iraq was lost? Does anybody remember Dick Durban calling our soldiers NAZI? What about Jack Murtha calling the Marines cold blooded killers? The lefts attack on General Petraeus calling him General betrayus when he appeared before congress in suppport of the surge? What aboout when Kieth Obierman called Bud Day (aCongressional Medal of Honor winner and a hero who fought in WWII, Korea, and Viet Nam the worst person in the world. I guess it is OK with the left to denigrate our military and gave comfort of our enemies but an entertainer and political commentator can't express his views?

Again, Rush presents opinions

Again, Rush presents opinions of Obama's policies that point out the administration ineptness and socialistic tendencies. Liberals never debate what Rush says, but always attack personally because they can't win on the issues. Warren Buffet also pointed out the other day problems with Obama's plans. Jim Kramer has done the same. It is as if the downtrodden want to believe what Obama says even if the math and logic doesn't work. Woe be to anyone who points out one and one is two.

justus, it's interesting how Walter Williams and Herman Cain both echo Rush's thoughts and ideals, Williams is a regular substitute host for Rush, Cain is a regular substitute for Neal Boortz. By the way, both men are black.

JUSTUS, you are an angry

JUSTUS, you are an angry black man. For 8 years, W put up with criticism from every leftie on the planet. John Murtha, Dem crongressman from Pennsylvania said that victory in Iraq would "definitely cause us problems," referring to election results for Democratic candidates in upcoming elections. Now, O is in the hot seat, and he is taking heat for the incompetent that he is showing himself to be. Hope you, KEVIN PALMER, and the rest of the lefties are enjoying this "change." The rest of us are waiting for 2010, and 2012.

Rush is the mouthpiece for

Rush is the mouthpiece for the Right-Wing's philosophy of failure. 8 years of failure was not enough, so now he and the right-wing unabashedly voice their hope for more failure for this country under Obama. No wonder they are being swept out of power. Why do they hate America so much?

If the captain is steady

If the captain is steady chopping holes in the hull of a sinking ship, while assuring some that he's helping to save them, who in their right mind would rally to support the foolish captain? Certainly not conservatives. We're currently not in a position to stop the captain, but we're in a position to prepare to stop him. The 2010 elections are a long 20 months away. By then, I think America will be ready to rally....but not in support of this mad Marxist.

I kinda disagree. Hate would

I kinda disagree. Hate would be an indication of a persons ability to think. And we all know that the Fat One does all the thinking for his Lemmings. This is evident in the post by the posting of colco, carcraft and 44mag. I wonder if the tremendous weight el Fat One has put on is because he is full of S---, and it has no where to go. So I'll close for now by saying I never met a CON who didn't like and repeat what the exalted (draft dodger) says on a daily basis. And I still believe he is as powerful a speaker as Adolph Hitler and has a mindless following that would make Hitler jelous.

mimsy, Rush hasn't run for the presidency. Your messiah chose him as his chief adversary on several occasions and has ordered his staff to attack Rush's free speech rights to show what a fine president he is. If you don't feel Marxism will destroy America as we know it, support it. Conservatives won't and Rush is a powerful voice for conservatism. In 2010 America will have a chance to defend herself again...If we still have the vote.

I am not defending Rush...I

I am not defending Rush...I have never listened to him ..but decided to read this so called "fail" comment for my self... this is it...."What is so strange about being honest and saying, I want Barack Obama to fail if his mission is to restructure and reform this country so that capitalism and individual liberty are not its foundation? Why would I want that to succeed?" he said, bringing the crowd once again to its feet.

"Did the Democrats want the war in Iraq to fail? Well, they certainly did. And they not only wanted the war in Iraq to fail, they proclaimed it a failure." so where is the hate??? where is the hate???? where are the lies???? As in the above portions of his speech...I do not see any.

It is so odd that when the left wingers don't agree with someone, they start yelling racist and hate....I just don't understand that. What is happening, is that as the lefties begin their takeover, they are quashing free speech. It seems we are no longer allowed to voice our opinions. If we do, we are made to feel like we have committed a crime. Maybe this is the time free speech will emerge again.

It is most difficult to

It is most difficult to understand someone who is always yelling others hate when they themselves are doing the exact same type of "hating" they accuse others...Simply because someone doesn't agree with Pres. O doesn't automatically label them as dumb haters of humanity...I do not hate Obama I just deplore ignorance on any level especially from one who pretends to lead...Rush Limbaugh is not the President so what is the problem with him voicing his opinions?...What is particularly upsetting is to see Obama in front of Congress looking as lost as a newborn baby...Now that is something to worry about...Not what some newscaster has to say or not say....
