media drive by on rush limbaugh

i heard Rush limbaugh wanted Obama to fail as a president the other day and i thought, wow, rush is a total a-hole. then i read the transcript and i dont think what he said is that bad.


http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,481484,00.html

Quote:
Look, he's my president. The fact that he is historic is irrelevant to me now. It matters not at all. I if he is going to implement a far left look it. I think it's already decided. $2 trillion in stimulus? The growth of government. I think the intent here is to create as many dependant Americans as possible looking to government for their hope and salvation.

If he gets nationalized health care, I mean, it's over, Sean. We're never going to roll that back. That's the end of America as we have known it because that's then going to set the stage for everything being government owned, operated, or provided.

Why would I want that to succeed? I don't believe in that. I know that's not how this country is going to be great in the future, it's not what made this country great.

So I shamelessly say, no, I want him to fail, if his agenda is a far- left collectivism, some people say socialism, as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed?


the final verdict is that the liberal media is doing a Drive-by on Rush. they just keep repeating "i want obama to fail" and never mention the rest of the article. i think rush has the right to his opinion. he wants a small government, a conservative government. wow i cant believe i am defending rush limbaugh!

personally, i dont like the guy. i hope Rush has a stroke and he becomes a paraplegic, or develops parkinson's disease so he has uncontrollable body movements, the same ones he accused MJFox of faking:

ok the real version is here:

Totally agree. I think that in general, the guy is a moron. However, this comment is being totally blown out of proportion. I completely agree with what he is saying. Even though I was VERY unhappy to see Obama win the election, I hope that he can do some positive things for the country. I do not, however, want him to succeed with several (maybe most) of the things that he campaigned on. Ex: healthcare, war, bailout, taxes, etc. Nothing that Rush said was out of line. The liberal media pisses me off to no end.

The way that I read it Limbaugh would prefer to see Obama fail than see Obama succeed and Limbaugh have to adjust his world view. It would have been different if he had said that he did not think Obama’s initiatives would be successful -- that would be a fair commentary. But that is not what he said; he flat out wants him to fail.

Or to put it another way, better for the entire nation to suffer than for Rush to be proven wrong.

Well...I can partially agree with what he's saying. I want Obama to succeed of course considering he is my president now, regardless of the fact I didn't vote for him.
I know he has a tendency to say some pretty inflammatory things and he's not everyone's cup of tea but generally speaking I can agree with Rush's viewpoint. I hope to God that we don't end up with socialized healthcare, etc. Fix my economy, find some way to get more people healthcare access, get us responsibly out of Iraq and Afghanistan (none of this instant pullout junk the leftists would love to do if they could...we'll end up right back over there with a much more empowered Iran breathing down our necks for some icing on the cake), but find a way to do it without turning to socialism. It is possible.

But we all know the liberal media will throw Rush under the bus in much the same way they got Barack elected.....reporting with partisanship. Telling the partial story.

Yes, Rush Limbaugh is a total moron. His faithful ditto head followers are bigger morons. He's also now the defacto head of the republican party, which shows how f*cked up the GOP is right now. With thoughtful leaders like Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh repubs are in pretty sad shape.

I suppose all those that agree with Rush's warped point of view also feel he and the repubs who have been in charge for the last 8 years have done a bang up job of making sure this country was headed in the right direction. Lest they forget Rush's party is the one that got us into this mess and left it at Obama's door step.

I don't think the dems are prefect, and I don't believe Obama has all the answers. But I do believe he will do his best to get us out of this mess and I sure as hell hope he succeeds. This country can't afford for him not to.

RUSH LIMBAUGH's 285million dollar contract is coming to an end. He just signed a 400MILLION dollar one if I'm not mistaken. Its in his best interest to be on the opposite side. It dosent matter if the other guy is right.

Nothing new... They are constantly doing this to Rush. I think many ppl do not like him for this reason, but I challenge anyone to actually try listening for themselves and I guarantee they will have a different view.

I don't care for the guy. I grew up with my parents listening to him, and watching his tv show (remember that?).

I don't care for him nor Hanity. They both annoy me.

BK....ever take a look at the time window when the economy started the downspiral into the recession? Interestingly it coincides quite closely to when congress became majority democratic. It's just easier to dump it on Bush because he was the poster child for the government at that point and the pacifist left wingers were already TO'd at him for going in, hunting down and stringing up Saddam against the almighty UN's wishes. Had it been Clinton or Obama or Gore or any democrat and congress had been republican the dems would've instantly blamed the congress. It was just incredibly easy and convenient...."we have a republican president that most of the uninformed American public doesn't like anyway so lets cover our rears by dumping the economic slump on him as he gets ready to head out the door! Then we can use the help of the largely liberal media to exalt our sophist candidate in the election to celebrity status as he preaches about "change" in Washington!" (change I'm waiting to see to believe...as of yet it's been business as usual in Washington...the elitist attitudes of the politicians in the capital continues...hence the tax evasion charges resting on a few of Obama's cabinet appointees...I'm with my marketing professor...the IRS needs to halt all audits on the general public and audit every single member of congress, etc.) The seeds of this recession were sewn years before Bush came to office (Clinton is actually responsible for some of the bills allowing the predatory lending practices that helped get this recession going)....I'm not saying he was perfect by any means, there were things I disagreed with him on, but by and large I think he did a much better job in office concerning alot of things than the media will give him credit for.

Again, I hope Obama is successful, America needs him to be. I'm just praying to God some of these borderline communist ideals in masks don't get voted through...and he better not slack on national security....dems have a history of that. We haven't had any major terrorist attacks since 9/11 because of the Bush administration.

to make it simple...the office of the presidency did not get us into this mess...CONGRESS did...when is this country to wake up to the reality that there is NO meaningful difference between these two parties...

President Obama left the bailout to Pelosi...his fingerprint is no where in that legislation...

KC I suppose you can always debate how much of an effect a president's policies has on the nation's economy at any particular point in time. Here's what's not debatable:

1. President Clinton left the incoming President Bush with a $236 billion surplus, the largest surplus in American history.

2. During his term as president Bush posted a budget deficit every single one of the 8 years he was in office.

3. For 6 of those 8 years Bush had a Republican majority in congress against whom he NEVER vetoed a single spending bill, even though they created record deficits and ran up the national debt.

4. President Bush and the Republican congress increased federal spending by a staggering 50 per cent.

5. President Bush and the Republican congress increased the national debt by more than $3 trillion.

6. President Bush and the Republican congress more than doubled our foreign held debt.

7. Upon leaving office President Bush left the incoming President Obama with a record $1.2 trillion deficit and an imploding economy.

You can try to spin Bush's presidency any way you want but even many loyal Republicans acknowledge that Bush was anything but fiscally conservative. It's pretty simple and plain to me. He wrecked our economy and skipped town. Bastard.

Oh yeah and as far as national security goes, where was all that Bush administration national security BEFORE September 11, 2001????????????? Somebody please tell me that.

And finally yes, the drug addicted Rush Limbaugh who wants our new president to fail at cleaning up the mess his party created is a total moron. If you ask me he should be arrested and thrown in jail for treason. I think Gitmo will do just nicely. Anyone who listens to anything he says is an even bigger moron than he is. You really need to stop drinkin the GOP joy juice. It will have you totally ignoring facts, losing your memory of the recent past and sayin some really crazy shit like Obama is a communist socialist.

The difference is obvious to anyone paying attention. The previous administration along with a republican congress waged 2 wars (one uneccessary) simultaneously and spent money recklessly with no regard for the consequenses. The new administration is now FORCED to spend money to clean up the mess created by the previous administration.
