    Limbaugh's words do carry a lot of weight with conservatives, and a listening audience of over 20m nationwide isn't something insignifigant, Limbaugh isn't angry about Obama the man as president, he is upset about the stated goals of the executive and legislative, which is reasonable.

    I know what you're saying. But do you think anyone who puts a lot of weight into Limbaugh's words is going to see Congress's petition and think, "Limbaugh's wrong!" To me, this petition serves no purpose except to waste time and energy. JMO

    There was nothing to go off of as to the likely truth of them but your history and personal opinion and knowledge of those quotes.

    If you make a claim, and provide NO EVIDENCE at all to back it up, then yes expect people to use the only things they can to make a judgement on this statement...their knowledge of your history and their own knowledge.

    If you had provided me with the quotes, some kind of link or reference pointing me to something I can go to to verify that it really IS a fact that he said it, and allows me to see context to see it really is FACT that this is his opinion and not just him using hyperbole then yeah...i'd have no need to make a judgement based on my own knowledge of the situation and of your views.

    The burden of proof lies first on the person making the initial claim, NOT on the person disagreeing with said unfounded claim.
    ok, ok, ok,... Uncle! the next I don't document everything, I'll know that all the ad hominems and non-arguments directed at me are perfectly legitimate. thanks for the explanation and clarifications.

    I love how everyone who disagrees with you is quickly labeled by you to be dumb and/or have thoughtless or dumb ideas. If all you are going to do is demean those who's opinions differ from your OP....why even start the thread?

    Rush doesn't give a **** about what's best for the country, he cares only about what's best for Rush. I'd lay odds that he secretly in his heart of hearts was ROOTING for Obama to win the election.
    I don't know the man, but he is very consistent, no matter who's in office, whether or not he cares is up for debate as no one is privvy to his private thoughts. Rush doesn't ever advocate for big government, and gives us the information we need plus his analysis, so either way, I think he does an overall good whether we agree with him or not.

    And now he not so secretly wants Obama to fail.
    I was listening to his show that day, and saw the Hannity interview, his stated position is he wants the U.S. to succeed, and Obama to fail in the implementation of more socialism since it fails. He stated as well that he could support a free-market, conservative Obama administration. I am paraphrasing BTW.

    This isn't because he wants what's best for the country, it's because the worse Obama does, the better his ratings will be. The more unhappy the people of the country are with "liberals" the more his ratings will increase.
    My hourly job is at a broadcasting company, one of the stations carries Rush, his numbers are always increasing, no matter who is in office, so I have to say from experience that your point is a good take, but factually incorrect.

    All I can say about Rush, is that I wish I would have come up with the idea first. Of course I was like 10 years old or something when he started broadcasting.

    I see it as a waste of time as well, it is funny as hell though. My big problem isn't the petition, it is the very sinister idea of bringing back the fairness doctrine that scares the hell out of me.

    Consolidation of the media into into a limited number of multi national corporations scares me.
