    Let's break it down so you can understand it.

    The Obama Team, through his Chief of Staff and his friends have publicly stated Rush is the leader of the Republican party.

    Shouldn't you sit with the leader of the opposition just one time if you really want to fulfill your claim to "Unite".

    To seek bipartisan solutions.

    You do remember that word don't you? Unite?
    It was one of six words Obama could get out without a teleprompter.

    Yes

    Hope

    Unite

    Perhaps it's too much for Mr. Teleprompter.
    Maybe he can only recall five words without his teleprompter.

    You guys talk so tough, talk such a complete game, but when the ball is put in play... you balk. You whine. You cower.

    All mouth, no game.
    No, let me break it down so you can understand it. Taunting and baiting me isn't going to make this debate happen. You can rehash your same illogical argument all you want, but Rush is not the leader of the GOP, he never will be. The GOP is shifting to a somewhat moderate stance, Rush is an extremist douche bag with a bully pulpit. This is a celebrity stunt, nothing more.

    And it's doesn't make you right. It just really pulls the focus to your obsession over a pointless issue.

    But you have fun with that.

    Well of course not, but there is a difference here. Alex Jones is a retarded conspiracy theorist who's actually considered the fringe that hangs on the fringe. Rush is just a hyper partisan wind bag who has a following among people who love to listen to his voice.

    Both are the same.. Not identical and not really the same, but they are symbolically the same. Rush is a retarded conspiracy theorist as well, the drivel he spews out has no reality written on it.

    They are? Who, and since when?

    What I don't get it why so much is made of this....and why the dems seem so desperate to go after Rush. Like I said before, he is a radio talk show host.
    What are they afraid of, and why are they doing this rather than try and do something with the suck economy we are having to live with.

    I think they should at least have a nice, civil, private lunch together and share a six pack between them, maybe a couple of cigars.

    It would be good for the world...heh.

    Re: Should Obama debate Rush?

    I wouldn't say that Rush is the leader of the Republican party and in many ways he is a horrible bane upon the Republicans. But he does wield a great amount of power as can be seen with people kowtowing to him. Just looking at numbers it makes sense that if a significant portion of Rush's audience agrees with him then they will likely vote Republican and therefore the Republicans would not want Rush to turn against.

    As for Obama debating him, even if he were the single most powerful man among the Republican party it would not make sense for him to do this. Obama has issues that are more pressing than debating some blowhard. Is there really even a precedent for a president to use his time in office to debate his political opponents?

    I voted no/no. The US is better off with a strong looking president if only for appearances sake.

    Mr. Limbaugh would crush him in an open factual debate sin teleprompter.

    Then what?

    President Obama gains nothing from winning either.

    So, Rush offers a debate.

    Rush to the President: Debate Me

    Should The Obama debate Rush?
    Will he?

    If not, why not?
    After all, is He is so right, what does He have to lose?
    First off, Obama would rip him a new ass. 2nd, Obama didn't call Rush out, Rush made a mistake and the admin, wisely, jumped on it. 3rd, Apparently Rush thinks he is more important than he really is, just because the administration is using him like a hammer to pound repubs doesn't mean Rush is anything but a tool.

    Can't think of any, and I don't think Obama should.

    Can you name any example of an Administration clearly and openly going after a private citizen with such aggression and negative language?

    And no, I'm not talking about theoritical conspiracy theories with no legitimate sources that a White House person happened to contact through numerous contacts to get some bad press made about some random person, but actual legitimate statements by an administration against a private citizen.

    The President of the USA should not debate extreme partisan hacks for any reason...
