Skip to comments.Rush: Sponsors 'practically begging to come back'
Posted on 03/07/2012 10:53:11 PM PST by Impala64ssa
PALM BEACH, Fla. After national controversy over his calling a Georgetown University law student a slut and prostitute, radio giant Rush Limbaugh says he has brand-new sponsors lined up to advertise on his program, and some who had canceled are now asking to return.
We have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks, Limbaugh said this afternoon, adding he was not going to identify them today.
Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return. We are being very careful about that. Im not gonna give you any names here. One of them is practically begging to come back.
There have been reports among some news agencies that at least 40 advertisers have abandoned Limbaughs top-rated program since the furor involving Sandra Flukes push for insurance-covered birth control erupted last week, but Limbaugh said those news outlets are not being honest.
Because they lie, and because they dont understand how it works, he said. Everything is fine on the business side. Everything is cool. There is not a thing to worry about. Whatever youre seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect.

Oh, sorry! That nasty Simpsons comment seemed so weird I started wondering if it was some game.
My last post had so many errors in it I think I’ll keep my thoughts to myself for a while.
You're the one believing that I called you something which I didn't do. I stated that my comment would go right over your head. You were the one calling young women whom you do not even know names not me. I also stated then maybe you should walk up to one and call them that too their face. BTW that it is not a practice I would ever engage in. My parents taught me better.
Hey dude, you’ve successfully hijacked this thread and made it about you......give it up.
When you’re done spinning the sharp edges off your behavior; you’ll be able to tell people, with a straight face, that you saved my life.
Imus used to be funny long ago, I remember him getting booted off some Southern stations when he angered some Fundamentalists with his “Roght Reverend Dr Billy Sol Hargus” routine. That was Imus’s style, making fun of every concievable group.
Well there is quite a difference between Fluke and the women’s college basket ball team or Laura Ingram. Neither the b-ball team or Laura Ingram had gone public with a whine over wanting someone else to subsidize their social sex life.
I would have given Rush a pass for saying once, but he went on for three days about. That was his mistake, not the first use of the label.
Didn't you used to post on Clown Posse with this same name Dude? My votes the past 12 years in the POTUS General Election went to runs running on The Constitution Party Ticket. Go ahead search my user name in here to The Constitution Party. Look up the "Why I can't vote for Bush" threads from 2000 I think it was.
I don't agree with Ron Paul on Defense nor most foreign policy issues as well. For those reasons I can't vote for him. I voted for Santorum last Tuesday not that it is any of your business. I will vote Constitution Party again if Romney gets the GOP nod. How about you?
And remind us again just who you voted for in 2000 and 2004?
What were you doing at Clown Posse, hmmm?
Point taken and agreed upon!
In 2004? Peroutka from the Constitution Party. In 2008? Chuck Baldwin from The Constitution Party. In 2000? Howard Phillips Founder of The Constitution Party. Those were my General Election POTUS votes. I do remember in those years voting for Alan Keyes in the GOP Primaries except possibly in 2008 I'm not certain he was on my states primary ballot.
So are you the same poster using the name Hot Tabasco in here and in Clown Posse as well?
I'm not going to be a repeat serial dumbass like you, I'll vote the GOP nominee whoever it is.........
Let me guess, you were one of the third party dumbasses who gave the 1992 election to Clinton by voting for Ross Perot thus allowing Clinton to win with only 43.01% of the public vote, right?
Yep, you're really sending a message aren't you?
So are you the same Hot Tabasco that posted in Clown Posse the political troll website?
I was busting a troll who was posting personal info on a friend of mine in another forum. I’ll sent you proof in private.
Arm chair QB’s are a dime a dozen..........
I have no idea what you are talking about. Why don't you post a link to the comment?>
Because that forum is no more. LOL Come on you’ve been in here long enough to remember that site and the problems it caused several forums. It shut down about 6 years ago and was a haven for Trolls. I lurked in there for a short while gathering needed info to out a Troll somewhere else. LOL. I do remember some of the user names I saw though. :>}
Are you accusing me of being a member of that site you claim that is now nonexistant and being a troll?
my entire diocese of 50 parishes had a letter read from the bishop stating that the Obama administration had declared war on the Catholic Church with the contraception mandate. The Left will not stop until they force Obamacare with a full abortion, contraception, ‘partner’ support, the works on everyone. Alinsky was a radical atheist whose motivations were driven against truth, and as such, people of faith who believe in certain irrefutable truths. It can be tremendously damaging to society, but we really have the capacity to wake up and fight back.
I detest what Obama stands for but I can’t thank him enough for forcing us to decide who and what we are and will be as a people. It is hard to believe that such an empty suit of a man may well be the key for the strong to stand up and reclaim our American culture.
Hey Donna, did you ever get that info? How about posting it here since the Snipe has now hijacked this thread and made it about him and his lame accusations about fellow FReepers.........
All I asked was were you a former memeber of it? Not all posters there were Trolls but many were though. Hey if you can ask or say without any proof too the fact I voted for this or that person then I can ask my own questions of you. Actually I haven’t called you any name unlike your conduct toward me calling me a dumbass. LOL.
thanks Hostage, for a very helpful post. I am not a lawyer (went to business school instead) but what you state about severability and the need for Congress to vote on it again is exactly my understanding. Michele Bachmann spoke to this in her campaign and corrected Romney’s stance that Obamacare could be simply stopped by executive order.
I suppose that short of a re-vote they can withhold funding, but as you say, the taxable provisions are still there. If the GOP has another strong, conservative result this year as in 2010, there can be impetus in the direction of private plans. Employment as we knew it, will change. Employers will hire far fewer direct employees and use more contractors. The need for personal, private plans will be critical. We will see.
It wasn't even about you LOL. It concerned someone else. IOW it's none of your business. Dig it deeper. :>}
I’ve been on FR since 98, and I don’t recognize the name of that site. Like most other posters, I don’t read everything posted on FR...
In fact, that would take more time than the typical Georgetown U coed spends screwing - according to Fluke.
I know, but it was about a fellow FReeper and as your mother should have taught you, it's not nice to talk behind someone's back without allowing them to defend themselves....LOL!
Congratulations, you have successfully hijacked this thread and made it about YOU.......Unless you wish to further discuss the merits of the topic here, which is obvious you don't, then it's time to put you to bed and say good night.........LOL!
Oh so you do remember LOL... Your memory is healed LOL... Thanks for playing LOL.. It didn’t even happen on this forum. So unless Donna told you the contents of the mail without asking me first only a former CP would even have a clue as to what the heck or WHOM I was talking about.
I got the FReepmail but I didn’t read the whole thing.
cva66snipe, why don’t you post it on the thread for all to see, hmmm?
Check for Private reply. I don’t want that info posted here.
Add too that IF it were posted here personal what should be private info on others possibly Freepers would be released. The FR mail was simply for answering your question as to why I would go to CP and it did not involve anyone on this thread. I had good reasons as I explained too you. I was not a member of CP.
Cool your jets. I won’t reveal private mail.
Much appreciated. Thanks.
