MSNBC's O'Donnell Begs Congressman to Denounce Rush Limbaugh
NewsBusters ^ | January 28, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 01/28/2009 3:27:37 PM PST by Rufus2007

President Barack Obama wants congressional Republicans to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh. MSNBC's chief Washington correspondent Norah O'Donnell even asked one congressman to take it a step further.

In an interview with House Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Mike Pence, Ind., which aired on MSNBC Jan. 28, O'Donnell referenced the well-known radio host and asked if Pence agreed with him. O'Donnell quoted Limbaugh as saying, "We have to hope Obama succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward whichever because his father was black, because this is the first black president."

Instead of echoing Obama's response to Limbaugh and urging Pence to ignore the talk show host, O'Donnell asked Pence to denounce the talk radio king.

Once upon a time, everyone though Norah was a sweetie, but she looked outright angry in that clip.

I’m starting to really like more and more this Pence guy. He fights back, has some spunk. Good for him.

Getting wierder everyday. One member of the media, instead of pointing out where he thinks Rush is wrong, asked a congressman to “denounce” another member of said media.

Wha......?

Norah O’Donnell lives in Washington, D.C., and her husband owns a restaurant there. Can you imagine what her social life and his business would be like if she were a conservative? She’s no fool, that one: she sees the expedient thing to do and she does it.

Man, they sure are worried about a guy that they say they are not worried about aren't they. Obama said some time back that “Rush was an entertainer.” That he listened to Rush some times (sure, right you do Osama), and that he was a showman, thus not to be taken seriously. I guess the Chosen One has changed his tune.

There is an all out frontal assault against Rush, and conservatives. I this they (dems) feel they have us on the run, may as well finish us off.

On May 20, 2007,[1] and husband Geoff Tracy (owner of D.C. restaurant, Chef Geoff's) became the parents of twins, whom they named Grace and Henry.[2] They welcomed their third child, daughter Riley Norah Tracy, on July 5, 2008; O'Donnell noted that her daughter's first name had been suggested by the late Tim Russert, who died three weeks prior to Riley's birth.

She'll turn conservative, just give her time
Having three children is very un-liberal in this day and age

Isn’t ‘denounced’ what happened to people in the Soviet Union that got them sent to a gulag?

These people are pushing things way too far. What country do they think they live in? Better yet, what gives them the right to tell us who to listen to and what to think?

Maybe they have been doing as they were told for so long, they think everyone follows orders blindly too.

I remember that comment by O about Rush just being an entertainer. Time to remind O and his minions.

They make themselves look very very small and petty.

I'm sure Mike Pence won't read this, but I would like to thank him for not giving a mealy mouth Republican answer. An answer that a John McCain would have given:

"Look Norah, we can all agree that this rhetoric from certain members of the right wing media isn't helpful at a time like this. Let's come together as the President has asked. We need to forge ahead in a bipartisan fashion to solve our nation's problems, and I intend to do just that. I will give our President all the help he needs."

(Read that last bit in Rush Limbaugh's John McCain voice.)

It's funny how the rat wing media is constantly talking about "unity" and "coming together" now that they carried dear leader into the White House....of course they forget one very important aspect of last November's election:

We’ll see. Norah’s kids will be okay because they’ll go to private schools. Unless one of them gets mugged by one of the fine citizens of Washington, D.C., she’ll probably remain a pie-eyed liberal/hypocrite.

Pence was definately the WRONG guy to beg such nonsence of. He has written several bill to forever ban the stupid Fairness Doctrine. If memory serves, he used to be in talk radio! This had no chance of going well for Norah.

Rush is almost certainly the only living American with the capability of rallying conservatives and other decent Americans to save our country and our way of life from what is happening to it. Kind of ironic when I consider that only 3 or 4 years ago Rush usually just chuckled when callers brought up aspects of “conspiracy theories”.....now, IMO at least, Rush is our only immediate hope....I truly hope he has good security....the enemy hordes are clearly focused on him.

Rush Limbaugh: The $400 Million Man

On the verge of the 20th anniversary of his conservative talk show, Rush Limbaugh has re-upped with Clear Channel Communications and the deal worth some $400 million to rant on through 2016 -- that's the next three presidential elections and everything in between.

So Norah says "......when America's trying to come together...." which is totally news to me. I've been watching the new pukes in town pretty closely and what they've decided to do first is turn mindless killers loose on our streets, kill babies and encourage others to do so, and spend all the money they can on vote fraud, graft, corruption and condoms.

Doesn't sound like Norah's Obameister is at all interesting in "bringing America together". Sounds like he's a mindless twit into killing babies.

I doubt Norah can be saved ~ some people are like that ~ too stupid to differentiate p--p from candy bars ~ but least she could do is keep her mouth shut.

He has THREE RESTAURANTS. Basically they are beer joints with wine and tapas ~ entirely too many instances of food there having gluten in it for many of us to "feel safe".

One of his restaurants is a couple of blocks from the White House ~ probably on the site of that Starbucks where the guy murdered 5 people including that lesbian White House intern (or so Eric Holder would have us believe).

Not going to ANYTHING near the White House that had a mass murder in it ~ NEVER.

Yup. Like Rush says, they are attacking a PRIVATE citizen on his free speech rights. Nothing Rush has said can be termed “hate” speech. He just said he hoped the guy failed. I do also. I hope he fails badly. I don't want my country to fail, but Obama I do. BECAUSE IF OBAMA does do well, what do we have: socialism, more abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, downsized military, country laid open for terrorist attacks, close Gitmo prison, hampering agents on getting info from terrorist captives, more big government programs, more BIG government, his Gestapo internal police force, gun control, lost 2d amendment rights, socialized medicine thus less medical care, huge tax increases, more and more and more. I DO NOT want these things, thus I want him to FAIL. He can bet his last Ruble I want him to fail. I think these types things are what Rush is meaning when he talks about Osama failing.
