I don’t think Rush could get into much of a conversation with Willie without the pleasantries deteriorating pretty fast.

They should both love each other. Rush helped motivate Bill’s base. Bill helped Rush’s ratings. Bill is making money like crazy and so is Rush.

I don’t know - I would be willing to bet the conversation would be very civil.

Rush is NOT given to anger toward liberals - when engaging them in person.

He really can “leave it at the office”.

That’s his gift - he likes and respects people.

The show is the show - in person - he engages with people.

Rush was disqualified for having some medical issue...

That "Medical Issue" was a ingrown hair on his posterior

No. Believe it or not, Bill and Rush actually have different ideas and it actually matters which ones the nation chooses.

Rush is personal friends with a lot of liberals and just about everyone who has ever met him (with the obvious exception of the women he’s assaulted) talks about how friendly BJ is.

Public place, public people. Nothing happened. Both were probably quite cordial with each other. Perhaps a bit of joking banter. They may despise each other inside but externally it won’t show. Bill’s rage is for private audiences anyway.

The MSM of course will try to blow it out of proportion. Disappointed Drudge called it a “Confrontation.” If it was, guaranteed Clinton is the culprit. Rush just doesn’t act that way in public.

Figure out where the closest "gentlemen's club" is and they can probably tell you who he left with.

Rush makes a ton-a-money more than Bill, at least that which is reported to the IRS.

Roger figuratiely poked a finger is Slick's eye with roughly that statement on yesterday's show.

My guess is, that Bill actually pockets a lot more value, but for Bill to claim it, he would have to recognize his illicit "tribute."

Oh, come on. If there were any fireworks, I’m sure Drudge would wait for confirmation rather than splash it across his main page, known as he is for his well-tuned sense of journalistic restraint.

I bet they talked about diets.....Clinton wants to know how he can lose 50 lbs too.

Bill Clinton was out with Jenna Jameson discussing the possibility of her endorsement of HILLARY! for president.....they bumped into Rush at a swanky restaurant and sat having drinks together......

I know from dealing with liberal friends and relatives, even if you only want to have a lighthearted time, you have to watch everything you say because the smallest inference to having too much fun will put them in a snit.

If there was, I fear for Rush's safety.

Quarter pounders with cheese versus a honeymoon salad (lettuce alone)?

I think he's got a crush on the Socialist woman from France ... Royal. He never missed an opportunity to get her picture up.

snip:
The 53-year-old Ms Royal is the socialist party candidate for the presidency and would become France’s first woman president if elected.

Her manifesto demands equal rights for same-sex couples, paving the way for future anti-discrimination legislation should the French population elect her.

She has suffered from a series of gaffes during the campaign - at one point she appeared not to know how many nuclear submarines France has.

She also caused controversy by appearing to support the accession of Quebec from France and praised the Chinese justice system as “faster” than France’s.

Human rights advocates pointed out that China executes 10,000 people a year.

In 2000, as the Minister of the Family and Children, Ms Royal spoke out against anti-gay bullying in schools.

“School must be a place of tolerance, of welcome.

“Too many young people face teasing, social exclusion because of their sexual orientation. Some consider drugs, suicide attempts.

“It is time to stand up to this hostility shown towards homosexuality,” she said.

Royal has indicated that she is in favour of same-sex couples adopting.

In 2002, Ms Royal introduced a law that gave legal recognition to families with same-sex parents.

Speaking to the LGBT publication Tetu in 2006, she said she is in favour of same-sex marriage, something which is currently banned under President Jacques Chirac’s conservative ruling UMP party.

“Opening up marriage to same-sex couples is needed in the name of equality, visibility and respect.

Bad blood between them, even since the Washington Correspondence Dinner when Clinton was president. Clinton went after Rush personally implying he was a racist. It was so bad that even Chris Matthews said that Clinton owed Rush a public apology.

Former President Bill Clinton said that he has seen “unmistakable signs” that the world is headed for disaster. “When I was governor of Arkansas the women were slim,” Clinton observed. “Take Gennifer and Paula, for example. They were lean and luscious. By the time I was president I had to settle for a significantly chubbier Monica. Now, it seems like the only women available are borderline obese or worse.”

Clinton said he discounts Hillary’s contention that his age may be an important factor. “Hillary says that now that I’m fat and old I should expect to have to lower my standards,” Clinton said. “But I’m an ex-president, for God’s sake. How many other guys can use that line? I say the world is on a downward spiral that can only end in disaster.”

Yes - but not in person - and certainly never in person with a man like Rush.

Say what you want - Clinton is not stupid.

He knows that taking on Rush is a no-win scenario.

He knows that.

As Rush’s story today suggests.

Besides - if attacked - Rush would put out the flames.

Rush likes people - all people.

Actually it isn't, unless infecte. People who have them tend to get them infected several times in their lives expecially as a young adult. That is why the military would not accept them. Today they can remove or treat them so that they are no problem. My wife had / has one and it got infected at least three times when we were young.
