RUSH IS A KNUCKLEHEAD

Posted on 03/05/2012 6:20:47 PM PST by mamelukesabre

What the heck does he think he's accomplishing with his asinine APOLOGY? With his STUPID apology, he has just pandered to the left. He has just had his first "Don Imus" moment. Is Rush going senile? I just don't get it. Maybe the guy really isn't all that bright.

I sure do hope Rush doesn't have to be unemployed for a period before recovering from his little apology moment like Don Imus did.

What a knucklehead.

This is your about 3rd whine and b*tch thread about Rush in the last 4 days. Did you call him and he rejected you on the hotline? ;)

rush may just be an honorable man who realizes that he’s gone a little over the line and seeks to make amends

Since Clear Channel(i.e. Bain Capital) is backing him, watch for a softening toward Romney. Everybody has a boss.

Rush got the mandatory apology out of the way. Hopefully, he can return to being an important voice but he’s got some bad road ahead to face yet.

How many millions of listeners do you have?

Are you able to charge your sponsors confiscatory advertising rates?

Because you know better than Rush about the broadcasting business and when it might be necessary to issue an apology?

“mandatory”?

Why is it mandatory?

There is no mandatory apology.

Rush did not do a wise thing in trashing the “free sex for me” broad..but the whole matter has been taken over by the left.

The essence of this issue is government involvement in private affairs.

Little Miss What’s Her Name got her moment of fame and Limbaugh will be around long after she’s gone.

Only for calling the gimmee girl a slut. Once he did that he fell into the punji pit and the only way out was to man up and apologize.

My husband and I heard the first 1.5 hours of Rush's show today, and thought he was magnificent. We were traveling and not able to hear the entire show. I'll catch up with today's show ASAP via Rush 24/7.

We stand with Rush 100% and will support his new advertisers as much as possible.

Rush takes his marching orders from his sponsors/advertisers and management. He’s compromised due to $$.

It’s one of the reasons I stopped tuning in years ago. There are other venues were people can speak their mind, and not be manipulated/controlled or face retaliation.

Surely he knows he’s making it worse by apologizing. Anyone with the memory of a gnat knows what happened to ole Don Imus when he went the apology route.

It’s funny how you and many others on these various threads say, on the one hand, that Rush has a right to say whatever he wants, and then, on the other hand, turn around and excoriate him for saying whatever he wants. You guys are as fickle and inconstant as the leftist defenders of free speech.

Actually, if you listened to his explanation for the apology, it was an opportunity for another thumb in the eye of fhe left. “I acted like them, and for that I am sorry”

Nice way to kick a good man when he's down.

Look, Rush had a lapse in judgment. It happens.

His misjudgment was not that he was wrong about Fluck (he wasn't), but that he walked right into the Leftists' trap.

This will blow over, Rush will still be on top, life will go on, and we'll get back to serious issues.

Above all, Rush is a paid entertainer. The moment this started affecting his income he folded like a cheap suit. It was the same way back when GM took equity from the bond holders and gave it to the unions in the most un-American bankruptcy in history. Rush had no problem taking money from GM while that was going on. Never had a bad word about the deal until the money stopped. Flame away, but that is just a fact!

Rush is a master at what he does....His former advertisers will lose a hell of a lot more than he will with the severance of their support. If your product is put before two million people per day, by someone who seems sincere about it, you need to think carefully about altering that relationship.

Jeez, people. Parroting the left. He wondered what one would call that type of woman who expected others to pay her for sex, a slut or a prostitute, and then finished by saying, "Okay, so she's not a slut."

I love Rush but he did owe an apology for calling her a slut and prostitute and asking her to post video online.

She was not talking about herself being sexually active. She lied about the cost of birth control but was talking about it for contraception AND for treatment of disease (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome etc).

Even if she WAS talking about her sex life he should not have stooped to the left’s level.

I am glad he apologized and I forgive him. In doing what he did, he made the controversy about him.

Look, I don’t necessarily agree w/ what you are saying here but it’s true that Rush effed up big time. He took a little to nothing story and magnified it 100 times to the point that it let Obama off the hook for his self-made Catholic/contraceptive controversy. Rush turned a big minus for Obama into a huge talking-points plus for the left.

I just hope it dies down soon. One thing is for sure - Rush needs to STFU about it but I don’t know if he is capable of doing that. He’s on the defensive so he may continue to talk about it every day and thus continue to keep the story in the news.

What a mess!

Bottom line, no pun intended, end of story.

And a big part of the problem with America today:

Profits over principle, profits regardless of consequences, money over morals.

You are reading it about the same way I am.

The problem is, he is not going to recover from this if he angers a lot of people like he did me. I’m not some idiot rushbot that will go on cheerleading for him no matter what. This apology was a slap in my face. He likes to brag about principles but I’ve only heard SPIN out of him since the apology.

4 years ago he continually trashed on juan mccain for eating sh1t sandwiches dished out by the left. Now he’s doing the exact same thing.
