Mo is 100% correct, what is your problem?
At least Rush did not pull CNN's Rick Sanchez thing , and just made up quotes, to support his point.
A:~)Why doesn't Rush read the whole article before he rants about it?
This is another person who voted for their own answer to be best answer. Please report him.
I did not hear what he said and therefore cannot comment on it either way. However, I do wish good people like yourself would turn a bit of that scrutiny on what the Government is trying to do and whom they have selected to hold positions of power. Rush Limbaugh may be one hell of a radio personality but he has no power like the Government does. He is much less a threat to anyone than the Federal Government.
That would mean he had compassion and a heart for those less fortunate than him. Rush is man to divide us as a nation and to make people angry. He's an a%%h%ole. %26gt;%26lt;
Maybe he's still getting high. Rush like to get his base fire up. It's all about us against them. He's divisive. IMO he's a hate and fear monger. +++
That's how he makes his money ranting, stirring up trouble and keeping us divided as a nation. %26gt;0
Rush can read!?
He sounds like a lunatic because he is ... was there a full moon last night?
Try listening to the talking heads on the Left sometime. They rant about things they've never even read.
I do listen to Rush sometimes and know for a fact that he reads the entire article prior to ever commenting on it. The fact that he only reads portions aloud over the air, does not mean that he doesn't know what he is talking about, or that he is ';ranting';.
You considered what he said to be a rant, because you only listened to a few minutes of his broadcast and you listened with a closed mind.
To the first poster, I agree that making mistakes is perfectly acceptable. However, as a radio icon, he should have read the complete article BEFORE incorporating it on his show and wasting everyone's time by making irrelevant comments. Secondly, I apologize for making mistakes and expect others to do the same. Once he realized his mistake, he should have apologized, corrected it and moved on with the show. Trying to shift the blame and negaitive attention on anyone is juvenile and should be avoided.
So out of yesterdays show that is all you got? He was dead on about most everything else, did that offend you? You currently have a tax cheat as treasury secretary, thoughts? a few in the cabinet talking about a brutal dictator as if he was a prophet? Problems? A few congressman that should be tried for corruption (on both sides)? Once again, any issues? I think you miss the point Rush is making.
****** is that what Sharpton and his media lynch mob did after misquoting Rush? Libeled the guy out of an opportunity to be a minor owner of a football team. Any apologizes? Nope, so only the Republicans need apologize?
Rush is a morbidly obese racist redneck. He's also illiterate, so he obviously did not read the article. But he was probably too busy popping Oxy and illegally smuggled Viagra while licking Cheeto crumbs off his rolls of fat to care about sources anyway.
Rush Limbaugh only appeals to the LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR.
God doesn't exist.
apparently you only listened to a couple of minutes of the segment...if you had been truly listening (which is suspect now), he was actually tying it into something called ';political timing'; concerning the heathcare debate. i'm not going to waste my time offering opinion on this, here's the link for you to read the transcript to get the context of the segment....
Well, you say he backtracked when he ';realized'; he ';kinda agreed';
What else would you want him to do? I dont understand the problem with that. If what you say is true why is that so bad? Everyone makes mistakes now and then (except Obama, that is. LOL)
I don't know what instance you are speaking of but don't see the problem?
If he took something out of context, realized it and backtracked changing his line of thought, that seems human.
I'd like to see some of that from the current administration.
I don't understand any kind of fuss about radio and tv personalities.
The man isn't a lunatic just because you don't like him or his way of stating an opinion.
Is he obnoxious? Yes. But ALL the mouth pieces for both sides are. Get over it. None of them are worth listening to no matter WHAT party they claim to support.
Here's an idea, turn off the radio and pick up a newspaper. And more than one, and actually read the things instead of waiting to hear what some blow hard has to say about it. You'll be better informed that way and your opinion on the issue won't be influenced by some windbag radio personality.
