    He's been on the air for more than 20 years and he's been saying the same things all along. He's had plenty of opportunity to BE opportunistic if he wanted to.

    If you want someone who blows with whatever wind she thinks is going to make her the most money, I give you Arianna Huffington (who's due to turn conservative again).

    Limbaugh never did that.

    By the way, Patisok, many have proclaimed the "beginning of the end" of Limbaugh many, many times.

    (Personally, I think his greatest value is the apoplexy to which he drives the Left.)
    I don't doubt that Limbaugh believes what he claims to believe (for the most part). I'm sure he truly is conservative and truly does have doubts about Obama. However, the outrageous WAY in which he often expresses himself is done for the purpose of making money IMO. The same goes for Ann Coulter, Michael Moore, or Arianna Huffington.

    But seriously, my view is pretty much the same as it was last year...he believes the base principles he talks about, the more extreme things are generally used for entertainment or illustrative purposes, but he is an entertainer first and foremost

    Liberals just need to ignore him, then he'll die, starved of attention.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I really believe that Limbaugh is a conservative. Probably not as extreme as he portrays himself on his show, but he has act that way to make money.

    Rush is Satan's voice on earth. His job is to take drugs, get rich, confuse and harm the people. He is good at his job.

    As long as we're being all logical about it I guess.

    Obama is an elitist from a church that hates America, and looks down upon anyone who reads the Bible or owns guns.

    his job is to teach conservatives a retarded form of sophomoric rhetoric, practiced by such posters on this board such as Truth Detector.

    Same with Ann Coulter.

    And same with Bill O'Reilly. How do I know?

    A friend of mind worked for a charity that was in the news, as they came out with statistics on the homeless in NY state. The head of that organization appeared on O'Reilly, and was pretty much chastised from the beginning in typical O'Reilly fashion. She was very upset, and after the interview, hastily stormed out of the studio.

    The following week, a generous cheque from Billy arrived, thanking her and her organization for the good work that they do.

    Yes, a lot of it is for show and ratings. Which, of course, makes me hate them even more.

    Limbaugh has an audience. A large audience. audience=attention. It ain't made up of Liberals.
