I agree. He did the right thing. He outfoxed and outmaneuvered the leftists that were counting on getting rid of Rush and trying to destroy him.

And all of the whiners here that are now turning on Rush were not fans or supporters of him in the first place. They couldn’t be if they could or would turn on him so easily and so quickly. Ergo, no big loss!

Rush will go on and be stronger than ever now. And God help us if we ever have to depend on some of the gutless wonders we have posting at FR these days. It is reminiscent of the days right before the 2006 election. You know...the one where we lost the farm....literally...to the SocialCrats.

***

It’s amazing to me how many have missed the brilliance of what Rush did here.

Had he not said anything, the narrative would have been “Rush called her a slut.” End of story. A distortion, but Rush would have lost in the court of public opinion.

As it is, he retracts NOTHING but that word “slut.” And in his apology, which will be read by possibly millions of females who would never tune into his show, he gets to reiterate his brilliant points once more, and again devastates the arguments of Nancy Pelosi and the feministas.

Read the apology again. it is basically a synopsis of everything he said in his show, which was AWESOME.

It is a master stroke of genius, which has eluded those who aren’t nearly as smart as El Rushbo.

DON’T doubt him. ;-)

Except Rush is NOT a politician. He is an entertainer with sponsors. When Carbonite, who appears to back politically conservative entertainers, cancels this quick it should send up a red flag. They know that he has stepped into verboten territory. As much as an idiot as Fluke is, you can’t attack private citizens like that, even if it is in jest. Unfortunately, use of the word ‘slut’ took the focus off of her moronic statements and put the bullseye on his back. People that defend what he said need to reassess their tactics. Their message, not their persons, need to be attacked. All in all, I’m pretty sure that Rush will survive this. But he may be the only talk show host who could.

You are right ....He could have ridiculed her a whole lot more just by repeating her own words and letting people draw their own conclusions.He could have probably gotten away with posing the question “ What do we call someone who wants money for sex? and not directly answering it

While Rush is busy apologizing I am wondering gee how proud are her parents. The libs putting her out there is so consistent with the Ameritopia mindset. No religion, anything goes and the rest of us should support it or there is something wrong with us. No morality even you can leave religion out of it.

Rush is taking a page from Obama’s play book. By apologizing, he is calming the storm in the same way Obama calmed the rioting Muslims. We will see how much the rabid left is like the rabid Taliban in a few days. Will they stop their war against the apologetic Rush? Or will the war continue?

Evidently, the left-wing’s coordinated assault against Rush’s advertisers was having a detrimental impact as a half dozen sponsors were either pulling their ads or threatening to do so. I posted a news article about this under the “Breaking News” and “Front Page News” sections earlier today hoping to get enough of us to contact Rush’s advertisers and voice our support for him. I must say, I’m HIGHLY disappointed and in disbelief that Rush caved and issued an apology to that slutty idiotic law school student. If he would’ve only held firm for a few more days as more and more of us were contacting his sponsors, then this whole thing would’ve probably blown over. Now, you can bet the left will only be more emboldened by this... These sharks smell blood in the water and are going to continue assaulting Rush more than ever over this incident and will be screaming for him to be taken off the air. I never thought I’d see the day when he of all people would capitulate to left-wing pressure. Never!

Meanwhile, I can honestly say I have come to truly DESPISE liberals/progressives/socialists/Marxists and I’m now even more energized and determined to defeat them more than ever!

I heard his entire spiel, and I back him 100%. His point was, ond only idiots didn’t get it, is that if everything Fluke said was TRUE, which he made clear it WASN’T, then everything else he said followed. It was done brilliantly, and was extremely funny.

I have a feeling Rush was receiving pressure from ClearChannel to issue an apology. Of course Rush could’ve refused and then what would ClearChannel have done? Fire him and lose by far the #1 highest rated radio program on the planet to a competitor?

The truth is, there are many other sponsors out there that would GLADLY take the place of the cowardly ones that have abandoned Rush.

I just don’t see how Rush benefits from this apology. He knows better than anyone that THE LEFT-WING DOES NOT ACCEPT APOLOGIES FROM CONSERVATIVES. In fact, I can guarantee this apology will only further intensify the left’s resolve to continue hammering away at Rush and even try to get him removed from the airwaves. Hell, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton start organizing protest rallies outside of each radio station in major markets that carry the Rush Limbaugh program.

Rush should’ve stuck to his guns and this whole thing would’ve blown over, just like the Donovan McNabb controversy did.

Limbaugh was telling the truth. The whore fluke tells congress she expects american citizens to pay her “three year $3000.00 contraceptive bill”, and Rush makes the correct observation that ANY female who uses that much contraception spends more time on her back than on her feet. Gutless companies dumped him because of political pressure. I’ve included quicken loans, sleep number and sleep train in my list of companies who prefer their 30 pieces of silver to the truth.

Stand up for the truth.

I have listened to Rush a very long time. Have been to a Rush to excellence tour, have his books and videos. I still like Rush and usually listen to him, BUT, if you are looking for a hero, look elsewhere. He is not someone you would want in your foxhole. He is basically a coward. Is that as bad as calling a prostitute a slut?

Rush is an establishment Republican. Tea Party guy he is not. He is rich and famous and he likes it that way. He wouldn’t risk that for any cause.

Rush has always said ...don’t worry about the media. You can’t do anything about them. They are just a fact of life and besides “I am equal time”. HARDLY! Just a pimple on an elephant’s a$$ compared to the networks, left wing cable shows (that includes Faux News), thousands of left wing newspapers and radio stations.

A tremendous disservice to his loyal listeners. Protecting his own empire rather than fight our real enemy, the news media. We cry about Obama getting a pass, double standards, and how morons like Harry Reid (cowboy poetry supporter with your money), Nancy Pelosi (If not for Botox, there would be nothing in her head), keep getting reelected.

It is the POWER of the corrupt press. If we don’t change that ..... NOTHING will ever change.

Don’t give me back, what about our heroes Rush, Sean, Mark, & Glenn? Did any of them cover Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s news conference? Cowards all.

************************************************************

Gotta respectfully disagree with you here... Rush Limbaugh has single-handedly done more for the modern day conservative movement than any other figures since William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan. To this day, many (including myself) credit Rush for the conservative Republican majority that swept into Congress in 1994 for the first time in 40 years and has literally destroyed the liberal media monopoly that had previously had a stranglehold on the American public. He has been an incredibly CONSISTENT conservative voice throughout his entire career and is NOT an establishment Republican whatsoever.

While I HIGHLY question his judgment to issue a public apology to Sandra Fluke, this in no way lessens my respect and admiration for Rush Limbaugh and his innumerable contributions to the conservative movement. He’s absolutely someone we should all want fighting alongside us in our foxhole. I just hope that he’s prepared for an even more intensive assault from the left as a result of his apology than he’s perhaps ever faced before in his 20+ year career.

That is an EXCELLENT analogy! What did Obama’s apology to Afghanistan over the accidentally burned Qurans get us? Escalated violence and SIX DEAD AMERICAN SOLDIERS (and counting)!!

I wholeheartedly disagree with you on this point. As soon as Fluke stepped into the public spotlight by appearing before members of Congress to make outrageous claims in an effort to influence public policy, her testimony exempted her from private citizen status. In other words, everything she discussed in that very public arena makes her fair game for criticism and scrutiny.

Money talks, and his sponsors were jumping ship as if it was the Titanic. He had to stop the bleeding. I don’t like it either because it empowers the other side even more now.

Yes, money talks. But I don't think Rush would have apologized over the sponsors. I wonder if the big station AM stations threatened to drop his show from the airwaves. Power folks, what is power? And how do you get a person of principle to submit to that power? What is the one thing Rush loves more than anything?

Am I disappointed in Rush's apology? Yes as a matter of fact I am deeply offended and troubled by it. On Friday when I listened to Rush's rantings in-between client visits, I could not help but consider the two polar opposites he provoked. The idea of using the 'women's health issue' to promote secular, immoral promiscuity verses the moral Christian culture. The very idea of paying for women who have no morality and are not repentant of their ways, is offensive. It should provoke outrage from every corner of Religion.

And so getting up on a Sunday morning to read the immoral and sinful won should give us all pause. Rush chose his words carefully in the apology, we can all read that. And if we can comprehend it, so can the left. It won't surprise me if the apology is rejected. You can't apologize for the truth. I do see this whole conversation within the larger context of the First Amendment, both regarding Speech and Religion.

Mao used to gather up older adults and take them to theaters where they would kneel before the public and their children would rebuke them and shame them. 0bama doesn't need to roundup to theaters people who he thinks are being too powerful. Our media is the theater. 0bama's hand is all over this feigned public rebuke of Rush.

So much this past week gives me deep pause to wonder conspiratorially. Natural causes and business opportunities from unknown sources...really? Do you think Rush would have told us it was a real threat? A neon sign of Lincoln and Boothe, the day after Brietbart's death, even in a symbolic sense that is a pretty dark idea. Rush spent several days on this chick's testimony...bravado in the face of a threat?

One other thing that disgusts me about this whole ordeal is Sandra Fluke will now be elevated and enshrined into a figure of greatness by the radical left-wing. Colleges and universities from all over the country will pay her big bucks to speak about the “virtues” of free contraception. The Democrat party will guarantee her a great paying public attorney position somewhere in Washington D.C. And she’ll be forever worshiped and immortalized by the left as “the woman who made Rush Limbaugh apologize”.

The whole thing just absolutely SICKENS me.

There is nothing recreational about this woman. She isn’t some college kid so bereft of money because she has to pay for whatever it is that fixes whatever her woman problems are.

She is a 30 year old political activist who enrolled specifically to target the University, politically, for Democrat platform issues. She is an ambitious schemer, just like most other Democrats in that DC sphere of corruption.

I’m saddened to see that Rush backed off and apologized. On hindsight, he should have just laughed her off as an administration plant and been done with it.

These people can’t be reasoned with, cannot be argued with. They should be just ridiculed and then ignored like they are not there. I’m afraid that Rush’s capitulation will be an impetus for the Democrats to PRODUCE other issues like this.

Rush didn't create any national stir. The liberal media did by posting this as news and not the high gas prices, Owebama 5 trillon $ debt etc. The media controls what people talk about and so shifts public opinion .The media has ruled this country for 100 years. The media got Obama elected by lying against Palin, lying against Bush and the “republican Congress” for 8 years, etc. If the media were really reporting news and not “Palin got that congress woman shot” then we'd be about to have president Palin right now. The media has ruled this country for 100 years so that government and socialism and debt is always growing : so we must collapse as any who borrow 5 trillion in 3 years must. The media is the cause of all our problems.

If Rush were Churchill, he would hold the line & add:

No, too many sunshine patriots at FR have abandoned Rush.

Rush could have retired fifteen years ago; he doesn't need any of this garbage. Every notable conservative needs expensive security. He/they put up with daily threats. Rush has an airport quality scanner for everything addressed to him. I am not aware of any Leftist who pays for personal security from rabid Tea Partiers.

Too many pubbie pols have relied on Rush and others to do their work, to get into the Left’s faces and call them out.

So you don't like Rush's business decision? Tough.

Whether women can get the pill at Wal-Mart for that price, or whether some get it elsewhere at a higher price, may make her a liar but it does not make her a slut. Seeking to have the pill included as part of health insurance does not make her slut either.

That is what Rush called her, and that is what this is about.

Very very well said. I try to listen to his opening salvos at work in my car during lunchtime..and when I can, on the way home. And as you said, for the education..and humor. Rush is a radio talk show host and he has opened my eyes many times. But he is not the be all to end all of conservatism and he would agree.

I get it, too.

Providing free birth control does not guarantee a man is going to get sex.

I suggest we take the program one step further and create a Federal Department of Escort Services where any citizen can hire a hooker for the hour (paid by your fellow taxpayers)!

We should not pay for contraception unless sex is guaranteed!

Reminds me of that line from “Designing Women.”

Julia to Suzanne: “If sex were fast food, they’d have to put an arch over your bed.”

Rumors of El Rushbo's popularity demise have been greatly exagerated in the past.
I believe he will yet surprise you.

“... do you think any woman college student who is sexually active (yet not married or engaged) is a slut?” ...

A very large number of college co-eds are acting very promiscuous these days. I have 2 college age daughters and I can tell you from real life (they watch the behavior in disgust and don’t partake) that the hooking up scene with different partners every week end night is out of control. This is recreational sex BIG TIME and isn’t about the sexually active girls engaged or with a steady boyfriend.

The boundless hooking up college scene is over the top right now with large numbers of college women fitting the definition of “slut”, tramp, hoe. etc. In fact they consider it funny/cute to label themselves as “hoes” (whores) for fun.

Agreed. This is a liberal media sensation. Rush is a master at manipulating them and they allow it every time.
This to-do will fade in a few days.

I can’t believe I’m reading, “Rush has lost us the election!”

Rush’s bean counters must have advised him

No doubt. I've always thought of him as a very rich man, but now it is clear he is financially on a slender limb and cannot safely extend any further.

IOW, Rush is maxed.

Follow the money, Rush. What are these folks big investment plans with big pharma companies if contraception is is mandated?
A prelude to insider trading. Don't retreat, reload.
