    Sure does. One only has to read newspapers and magazines here in Taiwan to get a sense of that.

    Personally, I think the GOP ought to study the issue while it's in the light.

    I mean, personally, I traditionally like the GOP. Over the better part of the last decade, I have gotten sideways with it. I like being conservative, in a Goldwater "live-and let-live" kinda way. Since the O'Reilly's and Limbaugh's started representing and making policy for the GOP, (and brought in all these rude, disrespectful, nasty people with them,) The party has nosedived and you can't hardly buy a seat in politics anymore if there is an "R" beside your name.





    PS... I'll tell you guys something else I believe. If the marketed demanded it, I believe that Rush Limbaugh would broadcast in high-heels wearing silk panty-hose (with a line running up the back,) endorse same-sex marriage, eat tofu and own a little mexican hairless chihuahua. It's all about the money.

    Whereas, he does have a little competition in his field, he's on top. Hannity's just an idiot, Coulter is just a **** and O'Reilly is...well, O'Reilly is O'Rilley.

    Still, Rush is the King or Rightwing Lunacy. There are many impersonators, but there was only one Elvis.

    He has worked hard for that title. He deserves it above all others. He deserves the money it brings him. That is the American way for sure. Let freedom ring!

    (CNSNews.com) – The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail.
    http://cnsnews.com/public/content/ar...x?RsrcID=42616


    On the heels of Obama’s ill advised Limbaugh comments, the DNC is now making the same mistake. Even starting a petition, sure wish I could recall the name of the poster who bravely predicted that Obama’s POTUS victory would spell the end for Limbaugh. Because clearly his show is about to experience an audience swell and even more exposure than usual, via Obama and the DNC. Jeez talking about playing into Limbaugh’s hands.
    Limbaugh does better with the opposition in office I believe. This sort of stuff is right up his alley. Bravo Democrats for playing right into his hands.

    You can't buy advertising like that, huh?

    For all the reasons people love to insult him, and some of them are right, to call him anything but deft at politicial warfare would be foolish. The DNC keeps trying and they keep failing.

He can barely control himself." - Rush Limbaugh

    YAY for propoganda. Since at least one of those I know for an absolute undisputable fact that its taken out of context, and knowing your love to go completley hyper partisan to the left at times, I'm going to assume the vast majority of these are taken out of context.

    Thank you niftydrifty, you've proven that if you take a single sentence out of a 3 hour show that's on 200+ times a year for over a decade now you can find a number that can appear questionable. You've definitely swayed me.

    Absolutely correct, and its actually a telling example of Limbaugh's prescense and influence still in this country. When you have the DNC and the President of the United States who just got elected in by a large margin worrying about Rush Limbaugh in the first week of the new administration then you know it is a big issue to them.

    Like him, hate him, Limbaugh is an extremely influential and important character in the landscape of American Politics and many of the liberals in power are extremely afraid of that fact to the point of feeling the need to make stupid stunts or idiotic comments like those in the past week.

    As has been pointed out, Rush's comment wan in reference to Obama's economic policies and the current economic woe.

    Given that Rush disagrees with Obama's policies, and believes they will cause the US more long term harm than short-term good, why would he NOT want Obama to fail?

    And then, what is wrong with Rush expressing that view?

    Re: Democrats Launch Petition Against Rush Limbaugh

    The Drug addict gasbag is a cancer for the Republican party...I don't see this as the Democrats playing into his hands at all. The best thing that could happen to the Democrats is for Rush to be in the limelight for the next 2-4 years...the closer he is affiliated with the Republican base the more clear it becomes how out of touch the Republican party has become.
