180 degrees in a "Rush"

Okay folks. I wish to announce that I have come full
circle on Rush Limbaugh. I used to a huge fan, but now I rank him with Bob Brinker and Michael Jackson. Can't
even stand to listen any more. The final straw was his take
on Terri Shiavo. He was losin' me before but that was
the capper. So, all of you libs who think he's a big fat
idiot.............you were right. I am properly contrite.

Re: 180 degrees in a "Rush"

I listen to Rush, Hannity, and Mike Gallagher. I like Rush the best, he's the most entertaining. Hannity gets annoying sometimes as he occasionally comes across like many of the libs: harsh, angry, and shrill.

Re: 180 degrees in a "Rush"

Didn't you just get tired of Rush and this Schivao business?? Talk about a Republican Hack! I think this will hurt his ratings. But, he's survived before....

Yea I agree, Rush went way overboard with the Schaivo case. However when something other than Iraq is in the headlines, that's always a good thing. No news is good news in Iraq and it looks like that's how things have been going and are hopefully headed.

You mean besides the whole "oops turns out we didn't have any reason to start the war in the first place" headlines like this one:

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...5184_2005mar31

Funny how republicans got all worked up about the life and death of one brain-dead women in florida but seem not all all concerned about the few thousand american troops and then ten's of thousands of Iraqi civilians killed in a war over non-existant weapons of mass destruction...guess that whole "Culture of Life" thing is kind of comes and goes.

Re: 180 degrees in a "Rush"

JG,

Rush is a quintessential Republican. * Eventually you'll connect the dots and realize just how silly and narrow-minded that party can be and is. The Schiavo case is but one of hundreds of examples.

Logic/Fairness/Equality/Civil rights will put you on the democratic side 90% of the time.

I guess I didn't know that the intelligence agencies had a political affiliation. Had we not gone into Iraq, who would have been held responsible when we were attacked again? Would it have been the intelligence agencies? Or would it have been the president? Democracy is spreading in the Middle East and it's because of the due diligence of this president to address evil and wrongdoing, not run from it. The last avoidance strategy of launching a few dozen cruise missiles into the desert after the embassy bombings really sent a strong message to the terrorists didn't it? They must have been scared for about a year until the USS Cole was attacked. Then another year passes and then they strike us on 9-11 for a loss of about 3100 civilians, so I'd say with relative certainty that the old strategy wasn't working, and won't work in the future. What we are doing now is working, like it or not.

Re: 180 degrees in a "Rush"

Yes.... and spreading the armed forces as thin as butter on toast is due diligence? Recruitment numbers are way down, reenlistment is way down. If anything should happen in the next several years, you know what will happen- the draft. When your number is called, and you find yourself 1/2 way around the world, I wonder if you will be as supportive of current policies. Some of my friends from high school are in Iraq, and every now and then I see an email.... despite what you may see on TV, they still write about rockets being fired at them, things exploding.... it's not a plesent experience. For those of you who have served, and may be serving now, my hat is off to you. In my mind, there is a difference between 'supporting the troops', and supporting the policies which placed them there.

If anything is spreading in the middle east, it's unrest and anti-American sentiment. I really hope the Iraqis can pull it together and get their country moving again. I also hope Iran ceases their nuclear plans, and that Israel will not feel the need to initiate a first strike against their nuclear facilities in order to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power (they have done this before in 1981 against Iraq).... Iran would retaliate, and the US would be compelled to intervene on behalf of Israel.

Wouldn't we have had to been attacked by IRAQ the *first* time, in order to be attacked again? Don't tell me, you are still one of those people that beleives Saddam Hussein had anything to do with 9/11? That "theory" has been totally debunked many times...it just aint so.

Re: 180 degrees in a "Rush"

Rush's popularity is indicative of just how messed up our politics has become. We no longer debate the merits of positions, we root for our "team". It doesn't matter if our team captain is a drug addict (oxycontin) is a relationship train wreck (what, 4 marraiges now?) panders to racists, totally hypocritical(you said all druggies should go to jail, why aren't you there, Rushy?), etc. He may be an SOB, but he's our SOB!!!

And before you say it, I'll say it. Yes, someone's personal problems should not take away from the merits of a good argument he/she expounds. But he has spent so much time stating that character DOES matter, yet he won't weigh himself with those same scales (probably break'em anyway).

My cure for a truly annoying broadcaster is not to patronize their advertiser, suggest to like minded friends to do likewise and share my decision with the advertiser. When I shared this approach with another talking head he was appalled. Kick them where it hurts, the pocket book!

Berkshire, from an outsider looking in.

You don't really believe that horsesh*t you're spouting do you.

We used to talk about brainwashing in the late 50's and early 60's.

You've taken the bobber all the way to the bottom.

Give your head a shake!
