Rush despises the faux “conservatives” at that dinner, Brooks especially.

I wonder how many had to pass the smelling salts for fear of fainting in their messiah's presence.

When I heard about this, the first thing that crossed my mind was that perhaps the President was going to award Rush the Medal of Freedom, but being invited to attend Tony Blair’s award ceremony is almost as good...

Story goes that 0 was denied the Blair House because John Howard was booked there way in advance. Likely true

Rush SHOULD have been awarded the Medal of Freedom Medal.

Just like the two border agents SHOULD have been granted a presidential pardon.

Too late now.

No guts, no glory, Mr. President.

God bless ya, Rush. We’re entering a dark tunnel with no way of knowing what’s on the other side. Nice to have someone like you on our side as we begin this unwanted journey.

3947 comments there. Amazing. Rush is the omni-present MahaRushi so he can be anywhere at any time, in multiple places in fact. He was there. Bank on it.

He had George Will’s bow tie twirling like the prop on a propeller beanie. He had 0 saying Donovan McNabb sucks

I have an idea. Since most people vote the “popularity” ticket instead of the facts, why don’t we convince Rush and Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity and all the other popular talk show hosts to run for the Senate or the House. There are lots of good talk show hosts who could fill in until the people get the idea that we have to have good Republicans to run for office.

I’m starting to get a little bummed out with Sean. A thought occurred to me just this week. I’m slow on the uptake at time so most of you probably already had this thought. Sean Hannity cannot go after some people like Levin and Rush can because a lot of these faux conservatives are paid/permanent guests/hosts on FNC. Let’s see - he can’t criticize Karl Rove, O’Reilly, Huckabee, Beck, Sharpton, Fred Barnes, Mort Konracke, etc. This compromises him and makes him less effective to the conservative cause.

Obama is talking to the wrong conservatives; if you can call them that. If he was really interested in being a leader to all; he would talk to real conservatives.

“...to real conservatives.”

Defined as?

Or is it a matter of “I can’t define it but I know it when I see it”?

All that is prolly true about Blabbity. Plus, he’s a NorthEast Republican, not a conservative. He’s also not the brightest bulb in the box.

I listened to him a little bit during the election and right after. After the election, he kept saying he “wished Obama success”. That was it for me. I’ll never listen to him again. I don’t listen to boobs who wish Marxist leaders success as president of my country.

He is probably one of the loneliest people on the planet. He has gotten burned in marriage twice, no children, hounded wherever he goes, always wondering if “friends” are friends or just want something from him. Yes he “has it all” but I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes.

Ditto that. Rush deserves the Medal of Freedom as much as Blair, and Blair is deserving as well.

Why should I do that?

What should you think I have a good one, or even a bad one?

Conservatives = those who have read, believe, and adhere to the United States Constitution.

Is that a good enough definition for you?

"There's still hope (for the border agents)."

Don't hold your breath.

Bush has been so erratic in his last term it's obvious someone has had his ear, and it hasn't been us.

Mix shadowy advisors who have no compass with a dose of Bush stubborness (and misplaced "compassion") and you get his eerie jumping-bean behavior. It's a toss-up what he'll do next.

Sixteen scary days till his departure....and then we get another enigma. May the saints preserve us.

“You seem to be questioning mine...”

It wasn’t my intent to discuss who in particular is or is not a conservative.

“...so I am assuming you do have one.”

Not necessarily a good assumption. Perhaps I’m looking for a good definition myself.

You left out understand.

Also, that leaves out fiscal and social conservatives unless their fiscal and social conservatism relates to the United States Constitution. I'll have to think about that.

I not you didn't mention the Declaration of Independence either.

Just knew Rush would not be called by the anointed one for any input. Obama will always talk out of the side of his mouth. He is the typical liberal piece of lying trash.

Yes I understand your frustration, as I have mine. Bush will loose my respect for being the naive nut he has been the last few years. Those two border agents were convicted by the worst kangaroo court nitwits I have ever heard of.

Ditto to both of your statements, Leni. I think there's still time (up 'til the night before the inauguration?) for the two border agents. Why he hasn't pardoned them by now, I'll never understand...
