    Re: Rush Was Punked: “Obama Thesis” Hoax

    Good Lord.

    Rush is an entertainer. He has an opinion show, not a news show. He got punked. He admitted he got punked. Yet the blind rage directed towards him is all out of proportion to common sense.

    We hear blatant lies from the President's own mouth damn near every night. We hear the same from Congress and the House. Where is the outrage? Why no protestations against these elected liars? They have the ability to take money out of our pockets for whatever they wish to do with it. Rush just entertains people and has no ability to harm me or you. So why the outrage at him?

    I disagree 1easy.

    Spreading hate and lies IS certainly harmful.

    But I do agree that there are liars in more powerful positions. That is just a given, however.

    Of course I see the difference, but you left out the part that I really object too, is his kind of entertainment has given permission for some people to be rude when disagreeing about political issues by saying this:

    "That is how the ultra right wing does business and why I refuse to try to have a civil conversation with them about politics, because it is never civil."

    I'm certainly not going to say the left is better, it's that when I disagree with a left winger, unless they are ultra PC, I don't experience them spitting venom.

    The truth be told, I don't have much use for either extreme and believe, since the advent of talk radio and Internet extremism, that this country has become more divided then anytime I can think of in my 58 years on this planet. That includes during the Vietnam war where I could have a civil conversation with a republican or democratic hawk and we'd still remain friends, despite our differences. Now I have learned to keep my trap shut, till I can feel them out to see where they stand. If we are like minded, then we can probably talk, but even then I'm taking a chance.

    One of things I love about this site is we can debate all we want, civility is a must. While it is not perfect, nevertheless there are limits to free speech when it is used to beat up the opposition through verbal intimidation and lack of respect, then it is no longer free speech, it is censorship by mob rule.

    Rush sets the example, the rest follow.

    Perhaps there is, I am just amazed that Rush has a following at this point. The staunchest right-wingers I know in real life even think he's a buffoon.

    And despite the fact that he isn't a "real" newsman, many people take him as such. Same with the talking heads on TV, if it's on a news channel, and politics are involved, some will always equate commentary with "news".
    obama's the one who takes rush so seriously, deadly seriously

    obama feels the same about fox, self evidently

    presidents probably shouldn't lower themselves to debating those they've determined are "bufoons," as you put it

    especially when the nation is undergoing such turmoil on so many different fronts

    oh well

    Remember a few weeks ago, the MSM using a fake quote or two to label Rush a Racist?

    What do you think he did with this when he learned it was a fake?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Prof, let me ask you this.

    Do you this the Rush ditto heads take his entertaining rants as gospel or at least in a serious manner?
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    It is what one would expect of a blow hard high school graduate challenging a constitutional scholar. More humiliation for El Rushbo! First the NFL telling him to take his money and go home, and now this!

    "Limbaugh graduated from Cape Central High School, in 1969. His father and mother wanted him to attend college, so he enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University. He dropped out after two semesters and one summer; according to his mother, "he flunked everything", even a modern ballroom dancing class."
    Rush Limbaugh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb

    In that case we can expect to see you seriously criticizing Obama on nearly a daily basis. He has been lying to us from day one of his campaign, not just about what he believes and does but about others as well. He has damaged racial relations with his position on the professor/cop situation, he has tried to divide the country along racial lines, ideological lines, regional lines and financial lines.

    There is nobody with a bigger bully pulpit audience than Obama, yet everyone is pointing fingers at Rush. Sounds like some people need to get a sense of perspective.

    (This is a reply to Dr Gonzo but is not aimed at him personally. I have no beef with Dr Gonzo. )

    Re: Rush Was Punked: “Obama Thesis” Hoax

    I am not obsessed with Rush.

    I am more concerned about lies from the PotUS. And if you continue to debate with me, you'll see that even though I don't think Obama is any worse than any other PotUS of recent times, I will call him out when I disagree.

    I am not a knee-jerk kind of guy, and the whole idea that the President is so concerned about Rush, Fox News, etc., just validates their twisted ideology, imo.

    So, I think Obama should drop it, and just realize that as long as there is a love affair between he and the MSM, there will undoubtedly be some who take an extremely adversarial stance against him.
