Skip to comments.Rush Limbaugh should offer $1 Million for Parkinson Research for Obama- Khalidi L.A. Times Tape

Rush should offer to donate to Michael J. Fox's Foundation for Parkinson Research if the L.A. Times provided him an unedited copy of the Obama-Khalidi tape.
How could they - or the source who allegedly wants to keep the tape confidential - refuse?
If any Freeper knows how to get in touch with Rush to tell him of this idea, please pass it onward!
It’s interesting that you have decided the best way for Rush to use his money.
Why is that?
You must feel strongly about this, since you posted it four times in a row.
I don’t condone hostage-taking. To me, what you’ve proposed is as bad as threatening to kill someone if your demands are not met, and then blaming the third party for the person’s death.
If you have the million dollars to give to Parkinson’s, and it’s important enough to you, you’ll do it. You won’t make them a pawn in an unrelated controversy.
One minute and ten second spread. Seventy seconds.
Someone didn't refresh the index to make sure the post went thru the first time. :)
Interesting concept deciding how others should spend their money. Do you do this often?
Did you spend a lot of time thinking this up?
sheesh, are you on 28kbps dialup?? ;-)

I think Rush should spend $20 million! $10 million for the tape and then donate another $10 million to the Save The Gay Whales Coalition!
Then, just to prove how wealthy he is, he should burn another $5 million in his front yard!
If Nobama is President ( I doubt) and he is what we think he is as President.
Imagine if the release the tape and people scream I would never have voted for him had I seen it.
LA Times would look real bad.
Love the album that supplied your screen name. Cream, one of the best rock bands ever.
Lets all spend Rush’s money.
This would be a waste of his money.
Is Rush your George Soros?
Here’s an example of why we frown upon vanities on FR.
Frankly, I do not believe said tape even exists.
I believe LAT was using the “tape” as a bluff - they WERE supporting Hillary and tried to claim to have a tape that would damn Obama. No need to see it, they claimed it existed, and just like I could describe a dream with such realism you’d think you really saw it, they described said tape.
Oops, Hillary lost and Obama won!
Now, the old article claiming a tape exists that would hurt the One was drug up and their bluff has been called. They now do NOT want to hurt Obama, but also don’t want to admit they never had such a tape, they claim they’d be violating an agreement.
It’s a poker game, and folks are starting to call their bluff on it.
Now why would someone, me, for example, give a tape to a new organization then say, here, enjoy, but it can never ever see the light of day. To what end? Why? What’s the reason?
If you are going to insist no one ever see it, and it never be shared, then why in the world would you even give it to them? For safe-keeping? I could lock it away and keep it from view if that was the goal - why would I give it to a paper, then tell them they can’t ever use it????
This makes NO sense and I maintain the tape was a bluff, a poker hand and never existed.
It defies all logic that some would give a “tip” like that, but tie their hands.
Nope, it was a bluff used to help Hillary and now they are stuck.
There is no tape, never was.
You want to redistribute Rush’s wealth do you? Vanities are a waste of bandwidth 99.9% of the time.
Maybe we need to rethink the angle we are approaching this at.
Did Wallsten say he had a physical tape, or did he say he watched a video? Maybe he watched something on youtube, or an embedded video somewhere, like at Electronic Intifada (see below).
I believe the poet who appeared at the Khalidi dinner is a woman named Suheir Hammad; that Wallsten was told about the dinner by Ali Abunimah who has recorded tons of events in Chicago through the years, and has an axe to grind against Obama-and has many videos available on his site, EI.
If Abunimah is the source of the video (not necessarily the owner of the video) it’s no wonder he doesn’t want to be outed.
I would love for Rush and other conservatives who can afford it to Buy CBS.....change it to Conservative Broadcasting System and then start a school of journalism to counter the skulls full of socialist mush coming from Columbia
