Egan is full of something that may be construed as fertilizer. . . When the "fact" of the matter - The Affirmative Mortgage Action - "give loan to anybody" push from our Democratic leaders snowballed in the system. . . We can debate that for a long time - however, it wasn't Capitalism that devoured itself. It was greed, theft and treason (from many many dems). Plenty of youtubes will vouch for this. This stimulus "robery" is being forced on banks; many of these banks did not solicit for this assistance that the Gov't is pushing. One local bank in Georgia is giving the money back - My buddy's bro sits on the board and he said they were having hell trying to give it back - the conditions of the stim money are nothing more than the tentacles of left wing Gov't control trying to force nationalisation upon us.

Rush is not and has not attempted to be the face of the Republican party. . . This is something from Washington as well. We will rise with a leader - it won't be Rush; however, he or she will concur with Rush's presentation of American conservatism.

BTW - I'd rather be addicted to opiods than what Barnie Frank is addicted to. He's one of the top Dem leaders. . .

Okay - I feel better now.

I think what we are seeing here is that the media is way too powerfull and has a too much influence. What republican wants to piss off Rush? Rush has a forum that millions of people listen to faithfully. I do not listen to him, I don't even now what chanell he is on here in the Chicago land area. Take a look at the last election. The national media got a man elected to the highest political office in The United States. It wasn't because he was the best canidate running. It wasn't because he was the best canidate running in the Democratic primaries. It was because they saw the money that they could make off of this guy's popularity. Look at every magazine on the news stands. Either Obama or his wife. Look at the ammound of money that he was able to raise for his campaighn. Close to $800,000,000 in his war chest. Think a network wants to speak the truth about a canidate when he has that much $$ to spend? How many Obama adds did Obamam purchase on Fox news? I bet noto too many.

Mac,

as Jrock would say ... more cowbell!

shall I take it you don't think the article made any reasonable points about Rush not really helping the R's? did you maybe think it was an interesting take?

(notice I haven't said anything yet concrning recent new about the Bush Justice Department memos just released, or the fact that **** weed Rove will be "talking" in private to congress about certain stuff. that's all other stuff not related to this discussion, the same way the Tarp bailouts and mortgages are another subject. We can hijack the thread if you want, Id o allthe time, but I was interested to see if anyone on DHC thought the article offered and interesting take on whether Limbaugh is helping or hurting the Republican party. Not really interested in a pissing contest. If I wanted that I'd just come out and ask for Spinner's take. :lol3: )

No bro, I simply think Rush spoke from his heart and he's getting WAY too much pub from the speech - that's what I really believe - I also believe that the R party (I'm more independent conservative) is floating around with no real direction; it was good to have a clear-cut presentation showing how MANY of us conservatives feel. The Washington crowd is making putting Rush on the nr 1 enemy position. . . we are in serious shape - the R's of the past are a part of the problem as is the CFR, trilateral, international bankers and the push for a NWO. Do you not believe this a clear and present danger?

If I'm a Democrat then I hate Rush Limbaugh. If I'm a Republican I like Rush Limbaugh. If I'm an Independent or someone who is not very interested in politics, I am all of a sudden interested in who Rush is and what is his message.

All the attention that the Dems are putting on Rush Limbaugh is only helping his cause. Look at the O'Reily factor and the Countdown with Keith Olberman. At one point O'Reily would mention Olberman on his shows. During that time Olberman's ratings spiked. O'Reily soon realized this, and basically quit talking about Olberman alltogether. Olberman continues to bash OReily on a daily basis. The O'Reily Factor now dominates the evening news channel ratings. Olberman is just to stupid to realize that this.

What the Dems don't realize, is that all they are doing is creating more interest in Limbaugh. Rush knows it.

Good point!!! I concur myself; however, what if Rush is an incognito liberal - sent to let off a little steam when we are at polar moment. . . :lol:

And now the Kenyan-American says; We can fix the economy if we address Health Care . . . Ef him and whoever is behind his socialist takeover of America. . .

is that all you've got? this us versus them is way old. It's tired and of no value at this point.

Rush may well have spoken from his heart. But is that it? The fact that you rally behind such a vacuous position...of loathing, with nothing that addresses moving forward (only movng backward) disheartens the discussion.

Is that how you approach duck hunting when things are inthe misdst of change? I think not. What, if anything, do you or anyone have to propose going forward?

Here's what I propose going forward..Abolish the FED. Return the US to a stable monetary system where it constitutionally belongs. Reign in entitlement spending and get back to the principles that this country was founded on. Hold both political parties accountable for this mess we are in....They both created it.

I'm not sure what you mean. Please elaborate. I think Rush's primary message is that we don't improve our country with the expansion of government and entitlement programs. He's not affraid to criticize Republicans either. The economic mess we're in was caused by the Community Reinvestment Act. An entitlement program that forces banks to make loans to people who cannot afford homes. Now we are paying dearly for it. The Liberal solution? - more entitlement programs. Obama wants the transfer of wealth and the creation of a welfare state. Exactly what Rush says is the unnecessary spending that got us deep into the economic mess and put our economy further into debt. Rush tries to push the message of the founding fathers that the consequences of the government intervention to correct problems only creates additional problems. He is on the far right wing of the the Republican party, and not every Repub agrees with his message. But he doesn't care. Like it or not, he is the most popular political radio talk show host, and the followers of his message continue to grow.

If what you mean by moving forward is wasting Hundreds of Billions of dollars, then no, Republican/Conservatives do not want to move forward. In times of prosperity we can afford liberal thinking and spending. In times of economic stress, it makes sense to do what works to get the economy back on track. The government can't give something to someone that it doesn't take from someone else. And, you can't multiply wealth by dividing it.

THIS WILL WORK PEOPLE. . .

We then institute a fair tax system. . . the US would be one of the most attractive corporate havens in the world. But, to do this we would have to arrest the political system from the current CFR elitest.

THE NERVE OF SOME OF THESE LIBS:

Execute Rush Limbaugh for treason?
That's what Obama-loving talker suggests on CNN

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephanie Miller
Radio talker Stephanie Miller, outraged that Rush Limbaugh wants Barack Obama's policies to fail, has called for the nation's top talk host to be charged with treason and executed.

She made the call, not on her rather obscure radio program but on CNN's "Larry King Live" show Tuesday.

King seemed unfazed by the suggestion, neither following it up with a challenge or a question.

"To me that seems treasonous," Miller said. "If I could say something tonight that gets me that kind of attention, like maybe Rush Limbaugh should be executed for treason. How about that?"

IF WE ARE TO START EXECUTIONS FOR TREASON WE NEED TO START IN WASHINGTON. . .

I think left has hated bush for so long, they continue to need somebody to hate. So Limbaugh ruffled some liberal feathers, especially when he said he wanted Obamas policies to fail. Now its all out war on Rush b/c he wants the Dem's to fail. "its unpatriotic" to want your government to fail no matter how much damage they're doing to our country. We don't care if you have a first amendment, we want you to fail.

It really reminds me of when we went to war on Iraq. The pub's were for it, the dem's didn't like it. All the conservative rednecks told the tree hugging hippies if you don't like it, then get out. Now the tables have turned, except currently its the war on our economy. The dem's passed a pork bill, the pub's were against it. Now all of us conservative rednecks are being told if you don't like it then get out.

The difference is, we let the MSNBC's and CNN's bash the pubs all they wanted when they disagreed whereas, the dems want to annihilate their opposition. Thats why they're proposing this fairness doctrine, to keep people like rush off the radio.
