Skip to comments.Democrats go after Limbaugh
Posted on 10/01/2007 1:29:57 PM PDT by vietvet67
Democrats on Monday called on the chief executive of Clear Channel Communications to denounce remarks by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, whom they say made a hateful and unpatriotic attack on U.S. troops opposed to the war in Iraq.
At issue is a remark from Limbaugh that characterized such troops as phony soldiers. Democrats have seized on the issue, allowing them to hit back at Republicans who similarly latched onto a MoveOn.org ad that referred to Gen. David Petraeus as General Betray Us.
Thousands of active troops and veterans were subjected to Mr. Limbaughs unpatriotic and indefensible comments on your broadcast, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said in his letter to Clear Channel Chief Executive Mark Mays. We trust you will agree that not a single one of our sons, daughters, neighbors and friends serving overseas is a phony soldier. We call on you to publicly repudiate these comments that call into question their service and sacrifice and to ask Mr. Limbaugh to apologize for his comments.

Democrats lead by Harry Reid back Phony Soldier Jesse MacBeth now in jail for his actions against the U.S. ABC calls MacBeth a Phony VET
Harkin was stupid to say what he did. Michelle Malkin has the info on Harkin up at her website -— he lied about being a Vietnam combat pilot and was caught and had to retract!!
Oops, make that Post #28...
Heavy documentation of phony soldiers here:
Rush kinda brings Harry Truman to mind:
And this reminds us of the day--oh, it seems so long ago--when the Democrat Party was respectable, and good, decent people were Democrat leaders--Harry Truman, for example.
Why does Harry Reid (Senate Leader) and other Senators have the time to listen to Talk Radio while the country is at war? Who’s running the country while these nitwits listen to Rush?
This Video by ABC should be sent to Rush, but more importantly to each democrat and Republican in the House and the Senate. Dingy Harry deserves to be publically humiliated on the Floor of the Senate for his Outright LIES!
Headline should read:
Democrats lead by Harry Reid back Phony Soldier Jesse MacBeth
Haven’t found a transcript yet.
Just want an exact quote of the line, plus context, in question.
Harry Reid is only repeating two words, which alone sound bad but in context are probably perfectly sensible.
Rather than babbling on in generalities, the exact quote needs to be loudly proclaimed so people can hear what was actually said - and see for themselves it wasn’t bad (unless, of course, it was - which should be easy to prove either way).
Rush is not Imus. Imus has always been his own worst enemy.
Go to Post #45...click on Rush’s YouTube response. And then go to Rush’s website for all the transcripts.

There should be no resolutions for or against individuals.
He wouldn’t want to take a pay cut to do that awful job! He is better off where he is.
