I could see a small percentage of uninformed voters who voted for obama tuning in out of curiosity, and understanding what they hear.

They will make a Rebellion they do not want.
Rush is the most powerful man on the Radio.

I almost pity the Dems for their stupidity...almost.

Besides, Mr. Limbaugh was declared "Irrelevant" by the Main Stream Media during the election!

Is it possible that they could have been wrong then?

Nah.

Pretty amazing.

Democrats are very insecure about their power.
Ignoring Rush utterly would be the smart choice.
Yet...

I used their petition to send my warm regards to Maha Rushdie. Thank God he’s there for us. He truly has become the opposition.
This suddenly discovering fiscal responsibility by Boehner is such an insult. He and the rest of the GOP crapped on us fiscal conservatives for years thinking we had no where else to go. Well he was right, we had no where to go. The country is worse off because of their betrayal of the Reagan Revolution.

"Click here to send messages of love, hope and change...'

What a joke. Leftist loons are the most hateful, hopeless people on the planet. Like they are going to "change" their M.O. Likewise their hopeless empty suit Messiah.

My response to the DCCC

"Dear DCCC

Since I heard this about Rush Limbaugh, I am glad that you have taken the challenge to respond.

To me anybody anywhere that can take time away from you ruining this country with your criminal bailout, and no controlling legal authority or oversight is OK in my book. Just one question Did you come up with the name of DCCC because Nazi party was taken?"

"Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP?"

Now that's the funniest thing I've read today.

Are Dems that dim?

Maybe we should request Rush to use a teleprompter as a prop, then the Dems might not feel so threatened. ROFL

Over at the DUmp they are singing the chosen ones praises for “Smacking down” Rusbo. Quite the opposite is the truth though. The chosen one is the one who made the mistake. A very LARGE mistake and in a few weeks obammy and the DUmmies will find out just how wrpng they are. Of course the will sing the standard mantra of Rush=Hate Speech. but obammy doesn’t look very presidential or professional in lowering himself to childish attacks. Rush has him on his heels staggering backwards into the ropes hoping the ref will give him a standing eight count.

Throwing Rush into this briar patch will probably put an extra $10 million in his pocket this year. Having the Prez call you out is the best economic stimulus yet!

But *why* are rats so insecure about their new power?

Because it’s distorted vis-a-vis the election, and really isn’t 50% supported by the people?

Is Hussein doing things to tank his approval rating already?

What is the cause?

Oh, my, this gets curiouser and curiouser. What with Rush starting to talk about mounting casualties (and casualty counts) in the “War on Prosperity”, and keeping a running tally, and now this, wow. Things could get very amusing.

I can hardly wait for the release of the Obama “War on Prosperity” T-shirt line.

They have been about nothing but hate, tearing at Bush, and championing defeat on the battlefield for our troops and cheerleading bad economic news.

Now they actually have to be responsible and produce results, they were never about accomplishing anything.
Just opposing.
They still need to hate, and Rush is the attractive target to them.

Rush should publish the individual emails in a book, "Liberalism In Today's America: Emotional Illness Illustrated"!

Let us see the hate, the four-letter words, the threats, the illiteracy . . . .

Rush has a great instinct for capitalizing on opportunity, and this one is heaven-sent.

To smack some sense into the Republicans and energize conservatives, he was say “Sheesh, what is the matter with you guys, when I pose a bigger threat to Obama and the Dems than YOU do!”

And to further antagonize the Dems he will continue to state his conservative position and be critical of Obama’s policies while riding a new wave of free publicity that will take that message to audiences that that normally don’t listen to him.

We learned as a kid it’s not smart to pick a fight with the schoolyard bully. But these Dems have decided to get into a shouting match with the man with the biggest megaphone!

It’s a con. The overreach is happening. The D’s are trying to fool all of the people, but just for the next two months.

Rush isn’t fooled, and that’s a problem.

This is a short con, not a long one. Rush called it.

I hope Rush hires someone trustworthy to go over his plane with a fine tooth comb before, during and after each trip. I wouldn’t put it past the Chicago Thug Obambie to try to destroy Rush in and “accident.” That’s the way crooks act...

I’m praying for Rush.

I went to the DCCC address, but didn’t fill out the form.
I couldn’t bring myself to give even a throwaway email address to the RAT party. It felt too much like stepping in something nasty in the dark.

That's not the point of what the leftist are trying to do. They are not afraid of Rush. It is simply part o f their plan to methodically demonize and eventually eliminate all opposition and dissenting points of view.

Rush is the biggest so they intend to take him down first. If successful then all others will be attacked and eliminated. This is just the first battle in their war to eliminate free speech and organized dissent to their NWO plans.

They are in charge now. They are responsible for failure. They will hesitate and be insecure. They don’t want to fail, but they (Dear Leader and crowd) have to pay homage to those who brought them power.

Their policies are bad for America. But, that is what they ran on so they have to try to implement them.

The last time the democrats got together for a "letter", Rush was able to turn it into a charitable opportunity and the Dems looked like fools.

Well...there they go again!

The LEFT controls the “education” of 90% of Americans. Which means that the LEFT controls a trillion-dollar-a-year chain of recruitment centers, which control 90% of American for eight hours a day, from age 5 to age 18. Each year, they churn out millions of graduates and dropouts—i.e., people who have been SUCCESSFULLY indoctrinated into slavery and collectivism, but UNSUCCESSFULLY trained in reading, arithmetic, and reasoning about such things as liberty.

The RIGHT has NO REMOTELY COMPARABLE mechanisms for spreading its understanding of the world and human nature.

All this bickering about talk radio, a little tax cut here and there, a little de-funding of this or that—is, to coin a phrase, rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

The LEFT’s goal is the utter destruction of the anti-collectivist U.S. Constitution. The LEFT is getting near the end-game, which it has been working toward, with a coherent strategy, since 1830 or earlier. The RIGHT lurches from Nixon to Ford to Reagan to Bush to Dole to Bush to McLame—no vision, no goals, no strategy, no insight. And Republican First Ladies and officeholders who “champion education” by heaping praise on “our” public schools.

While you are probably correct about the leftists, there may be another element which I will throw out there for what it is worth.

Rush and the other conservative talk radio commentators are targeted by the left under their plan to reinstate the "fairness doctrine" or its "localism" variation. They have said this all through the campaign.

Rush therefore has nothing to lose by what he is doing, if they are going to shut him and others down they are going to do it.

But the leftists want to do it under the guise of "fairness." That is they want to slide this in with most of the people who do not pay attention not really being aware of what they are doing. That is how they operate. The phony stimulus bill is another example. It is why Obama waited until the weekend to sign the executive order using tax payer dollars abroad to kill babies. They cannot be up front and honest as to what they are really doing.

Rush, by making himself a target the way he is, is doing something. If they attempt to take him or others down, in this context, it will be overt and obvious that it is pure censorship, not "fairness" falsely so called. The best defense is a good offense. It would also strengthen any court challenges he needed to bring.

It seems to me that Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Glen Beck and others are doing the same type of thing. The result is it might just give a backbone to the conservatives in congress. (The Republicans are standing up to the stimulus farce to some extent as they did before.) It increases their listening audience and revenue, and is the only effective opposition.

I could second guess and wonder if targeting Rush was part of a plan to manipulate the public perception of republicans. Let’s face it, Rush is not well liked outisde of his listeners, he isn’t exactly Oprah. LOL

You are wrong about Boehner. He has never taken any pork barrel money in all his years in Congress, but, up until now, he was like a voice crying in the wilderness. I just heard Carl Cameron on Special Report saying that the extent to which the House Republicans are going to oppose this bill is more than might be expected and Boehner deserves a lot of credit for that.

To address the true subject of this thread, Obama is showing both his ignorance and his arrogance by taking on the most articulate spokesman in the Conservative movement - one who will not be swayed by Obama's dulcet tones and is not afraid to oppose "he who is too big to fail".

Here is my response sent to the DCCC:

Thank you Rush for speaking the truth, saying what the American people have no voice to say and doing it boldly, without fear!

The outrageous hypocrites of the DCCC and the old media hoped that President Bush failed for eight years and actively lied to and deceived the American people every day with that agenda.

Thank you Rush for being there for us! We hope you succeed for America!
