    Re: Do you remember President Bush or his Press Secretaries singling out...

    If I were Rush, I'd have little glee orgasms every single time some goofball in power on the left mentions my name.

    Why wouldn't he?

    His listeners cannot stand the people who are attacking him, for the most part, and every time one of them does it, it does indeed elevate him.

    In fact, when Obama and others mention Rush, the people who are pissed off about what is going on in Washington with this spending are MORE likely to tune in.

    And if someone is not a regular listener already, the fact that they hear from the President about someone who is saying what they might be thinking, they might be even more inclined to check out what is being said.

    I'm sure the only outcome of this whole debacle so far has been a boost in Rush's ratings and popularity with his base.

    Why bother fueling his fire?

    I don't get it.

    Look it jumped a million since yesterday!

    Not in this manner. I was making a relevant comparison on how to handle entertainers as critics.

    Steele.

    Rush may get increased ratings. Obama is stimulating his economy. I hope Rush sends him a thank you card.

    I don't think Rush could be any more popular with his fans.

    I really think it's a divide and conquer strategy against the GOP. Sooner or later someone in the GOP will have to step up and become the leader. Either they take on Rush and alienate his listeners, or they will have Limbaugh stapled to them.

    Anyone who talks for 3 hours a day is going to say something stupid or offensive. It may be a gamble, but the odds may be in their favor.

    Conservatives stapled Michael Moore to Gore and Kerry. They couldn't rise above that. I know Moore isn't exactly Rush, but both are detestable to the opposing sides, and much of the moderates.

    I don't see moderates flocking to Rush over this.

    Let me know when Obama discusses Ted Nugent. The Dixie Chicks are not the same kind of entertainer as Rush.

    I thought he said that Steele wasn't the leader of the party. Why yes, that is what he said. It's at about 1:45 in.

    Head of the RNC and not the head of the Republican party.... Get act together...


    Yes I fully agree with him, my bad for not understanding you...


    However, what is the thesis of Rush after 1:45? Context is everything.

    At 2:20 he complains about open primaries.
