Rush was really on today. He had a really important and insightful show.
Good job Rush and spot on the target.
How mind wants to rationalize what one disagrees with.
Yes, Limbaugh is a bit hard to take sometimes.
He was better when he was on the Oxy.
Rush is ALWAYS good and ALWAYS right. I thank him every day that I listen to him.
There is another factor. McClellan’s mother lost the GOP nomination for Texas Governor (she was too liberal) and Bush supported the GOP nominee. This is payback.
Bottom-line: McClellan wanted the money (and probably needed it).
Indeed, Rush mentioned that, and that probably played a part. Well, that’s politics. A party cannot support more than one candidate per race, unfortunately. Maybe that’s the answer why McClellan got the job.
This is Scott McLellan’s version of O.J. Simpson’s “How I did It”...
Speaking of White House Press Secretaries, I’m listening to Mark Levin’s show. Mark Levin has just said that Tony Snow’s doctors have told him not to travel. Tony Snow was supposed to be traveling to be giving a speech. My thoughts and prayers to Tony Snow and his family, if needed. I will not speculate.
Former Bush press secretary Snow, sick, cancels Ohio speech
ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — Former White House press secretary Tony Snow, diagnosed with cancer three years ago, canceled a speaking appearance at Ohio’s Ashland University because of an unspecified illness, the university announced Wednesday.
The university said Snow’s doctors have told him he cannot travel, and that Snow will be replaced by the president’s brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, at Thursday’s fundraising dinner for the Ashbrook Scholar program.
Snow, 52, joined CNN as a conservative commentator in April. He became White House press secretary in April 2006 and served until last August.
In 2005, Snow had his colon removed and was diagnosed with cancer. In March 2007, he underwent surgery to remove a growth in his abdominal area. Doctors determined it was a recurrence of his cancer.
Ashland had no details on Snow’s illness and CNN’s public relations department had no immediate comment Wednesday.
I think Rush chopped him up pretty well. Especially the line McClellan used to blow off another book person when he was “loyal”...
Just another diversion, me from the jilted one and his for his mommy.
All knowing Barack Hussein Obambi ....Obama: McClellan ‘confirmed what a lot of us have thought for some time’... REALLY? Ya don’t say. Could have fooled me.
Has anything been PROVEN? I want proof before I decide.
the oldest profession rears its ugly head again.
GW Bush had 3 strong press secretaries - Ari Fleischer, Tony Snow and Dana Perino. Scott McLellan always seemed to have been an "affirmative action" one, something no President can really afford.
Why aren’t these people required to sign some sort of non disclosure agreement, at least for a reasonable amount of time, in exchange for the job???
I’m sorry—who has Rush shilled for? That uberconservative Bob Dole? The super-duper conservative George H.W. Bush?
Fat chance I’m going to buy his new conservative act is what he really believes. Maybe he’ll claim Marta made him go soft. If anyone knows firsthand how Washington culture seduces, it’s that lately-conservative-again Rush.
