You know there is some powerful people when they can get Rush to apologize. My wife said he would. He said he wouldn’t.

Mark Levin would never have apologized.

Here’s what Rush really meant to say: I apologize Miss Fluke for calling you a slut. I really meant to say whore.

Meant to say “I” said he wouldn’t apologize.

I guess Rush doesn’t realize that when you apologize to these marxists they’ll only come after you more. I’m amazed he doesn’t know this.

Actually I think his waife asked him to apologize. I told my husband yesterday that I thought his wife was most likely yelling at him i don’t know but I bet he would do it for his wife.

“Mark Levin would never have apologized.”

He would either apologize or not be broadcast.

Women control men then the Marxist regime manipulates the women. That was the plan all along.

Whatever happened to gender discrimination in the workplace? Oh that's right.. Preferential treatment for EVERYONE! (except white males).

And four of his sponsors dropped him because of it. Guess it all boils down to staying on the air. Heck of a note when a lying sleaze can humble the man.

As far as I’m concerned it’s over when Rush is beaten. And when he apologized because NOW told him to, he’s beaten.

Of course I’ve always thought it’s about money with Rush. This proves me right.

And I have to admit I don’t understand why people with so much money keep working. There is a figure that would send me into retirement. And the figure ain’t that high.

It was reported that he was losing sponsors on Friday PM. Maybe there were enough of them to force him...

Everyone said Rush set this up perfectly.

I think the left figured out Rush’s playbook.

Speaking of Bret Baier and Special Report, I am getting more and more disgusted with Fox News as even this show has gone over to the dark side.

The panel now regularly features some FAR LEFT moonbat (Lane) from (what else?) the Wa [Com]Post who tore Rush a new one last night along with some Lib Babe (don't know and don't care who she is but she is also now a regular) who also disparaged Limbaugh, as well as the token Conservative, none other than RINO Fred Barnes who waffled and equivocated.

A pox on the Fox House!!!

I like this a tad better:

Miss Puke, I’m sorry if you’re “offended” by me calling you a *slut* and a *prostitute*, but since that’s what you ARE if you want us to pay for your sex activity, LIVE WITH IT, BIMBO! Or simply divert a paltry $3,000 for the sex products you say you need, from your $65-67,000/yr college tuition, from whomever is paying it. I’m sure your parents are real proud of you, floosie! BTW, Miss Puke, WHY does a left-wing, lib-dem, lesbian activist NEED contraceptive products?

No one is standing for America. All the politicians jumped on Rush but didn’t say a word about the woman who’s having so much sex that she’s going broke.

Hannity says he has to watch what he says. Beck was pushed to the internet. Rush will be shut down. That shows he’s not for this country. He’s for himself. He’s afraid he won’t be able to afford to hire Elton John to perform for all the RINO establishment guests at his next wedding with .

I thought that what he was going to say in his “apology”, until I actually read it. But it seems to me that he DID apologize. I just can’t find the “Rush-Sarcasm” everyone is saying is there...

We can sit back and watch the destruction of America or we can try to get on the gravy train and all go down together.

I know I piss people off when I say this but I’m afraid it’s too late to do anything. And that’s why the republicans go to DC to cash in just like the rest of them. They get to Washington and learn that it’s too late. They talk a good game but have drinks with their “friends on the other side of the aisle” every night. And we’ve allowed this to go for too long. They’ve been trying to take America down for 50 years. And they’ve done it a little at a time. They’re almost finished.

What I’d like to know is how do they expect all of this to go down? Do they truly believe earth can be a utopia? Whatever happens I’m just glad my time on earth is almost over. I got to enjoy America when it was America, home of the free.

I'm thinkin' it was KFI that 'forced' Rush to apologize. We all know he's a narcissist but now we know he's a coward. If I were him I'd take my millions AND BUY MY OWN RADIO OR INTERNET PORTAL and tell KFI to shove it.

This just proves that whoever controls the news media WINS. I'll go off on a tangent here but 'Carbonite' is making a HUGE mistake from a marketing standpoint. They will see the older demographic abandon them in droves over their harsh critique of Rush and possibly pulling their advertising. Who uses Carbonite anyway? Just buy a high-capacity external hard drive and backup your stuff while at the same time keeping it truly private by not having it on Carbonite's server. It's as simple as that!

Rush blinked. Bad call on his part with the unqualified apology. He should have made it conditional: “If Bill Maher would join me in apologizing to sarah palin, then I wholeheartedly apologize to Ms. Fluke, etc etc.”

This won’t end things. The initial apology just whets the Marxist appetite.

We’ve talked at length on this site about Faux News going left..and many Freepers don’t watch it anymore.
I pick and choose very carefully... only certain shows: Cavuto, McCallum and Hemmer, Greta if she has a good guest...

Not much else is worthwhile. The panels are unwatchable.
I can’t stand Bret Baier. He’s a Dem, you know. His wife looks like a big lib.

It’s all about money, fame and power. All of them are bought and paid for. For years I’ve felt like we were being had by the radio “personalities” and the book writers.

Look what happened to Ann Coulter.

Hannity bitched about the GM bail out but advertised for Chevy by driving one around then talking about it on his show. And those ads were paid for by the tax payer. What a hypocrite!

Now Rush has apologized for saying something every congressman on that committee was thinking.

What do all these people have in common? They’re chasing the bucks.

Money talks ... "Bravo Sierra" walks ...

Courage, Rush ... Courage ... /sarcasm-off




It's the Law of Unintended Consequences ...

Now we all know why Rush Limbaugh has kow-towed to the GOP E-RINO elite ... with his defacto endorsements of Willard and Little Ricky Santorum ...

Rush "Benedict Arnold" Limbaugh now worships at the Altae of Mammon ...




What Rush doesn't understand that even if the "lost" sponsors return ...

Half of his audience is "gone" ... permanently ... including me ...




This was Rush Limbaugh's "Waterloo" ... Sadly he chose to play the part of Napoleon and Marshall Ney ...

What if ... and I'm being (very) careful here ...


Rush caved "not" to the Lost Sponsors ...

but to a beautiful "Arm Candy Spouse" who was afraid that she would be socially blacklisted from the Nantuckett Ladies Christmas Tea ?


Romantic loneliness can be a real "bitch" ... even for a multi-millionaire like Rush Limbaugh ...

If that thing gets tax funds, shouldn’t they declare her crotch government property and open for the public use?

Hell, DC locals could bring lawn chairs and set up shop. It would be just like the ocean..... wet, wide and full of crabs.

How do you know that Bret is a Democrat? I watch or DVR Special Report EVERY night and I have never heard him say anything that made me think he was a Democrat. In fact, he has said many things that made me think just the opposite! That WAS a terrible panel that night, though!!

He could always go out and buy another one. I’m thinking Rush was the one worrying about not be invited to the parties. You notice even Santorum distanced himself from Rush. So, you KNOW none of the big elites wouldn’t want to be seen with him. I’d bet some elite GOP’ers called him and told him if he didn’t apologize they could no longer be associated with him. Again, were are the principles? They’re hidden somewhere in that stack of cash and on the cocktail circuit.

Now they’ll come after him full speed. One more little oxy episode and he’s off to prison. And when the radio show is gone so will all of his elite friends in the GOP.

A lot of folks aren't going to like this point of view, but INO this ends this particular Dem distraction campaign.

Obama WANTS this election to be about contraception, Rush calling someone a slut, ANYTHING but his failed legacy. As of late, Obama has been successful in diverting the debate away from his record.

I think Rush belatedly realized the gambit going on here and decided to eat some crow for the team. And I am not a dittohead in the least, I don't listen to Rush. But this election HAS to be primarily about porkulus, deficits, energy policy and failed government-backed initiatives.

I am not saying ignore social issues, just don't allow Obama to deflect using such. Recognize a trap being set and don't step in it.
