Posted on 03/05/2012 9:48:11 AM PST by i88schwartz
Rush Limbaugh explains his apology on his Monday, March 5, 2012 program.
LIMBAUGH: This is the mistake I made: In fighting them on this issue last week, I became like them. Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything that I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke. That was my error. I became like them.
And I feel very badly about that. I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were inappropriate, they were uncalled for, they distracted from the point I was actually trying to make. And I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her.

Okay, Rush—drop it now! Enough is enough, and you were right in the first place.
Rush’s show has been quite good so far today.
As far as his cowardly former advertisers go...SCREW THEM!
The old saying is true. Don’t wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.
Weak. I actually had to turn it off.
Of course, I can listen because I’m unemployed. I might squirm the same way with that kind of $$$ at stake. :(
Rush aces it again. He was right when he said he desended to their level. Rush has class and he just proved it.
His lib advertisers are going to feel the pain!
Now... If Ms. Fluke would just apologize to all her ‘friends’ at Georgetown for calling them ‘broke sluts who are likely to get pregnant’, then everything would be OK.
He would have been OK if he had used a less offensive word like Floosie.
Personally I like Strumpet.
I think Rush should mail her two WNBA tickets later.
Rush, retire. Stop digging that hole. Stop groveling to lefty BS. If you can’t fight then let someone who can.
I was happy to hear why he apologized. It is SO true....and he also socked em as well!
He is also an Obama contributor.
I’m torn. Rush’s explanation was a good one, but then again, I think of Breitbart who would have got right in their faces and told them where to go. He would have never backed down. Kinda looks like Rush is doing that. That’s how the media is already reporting it.
This was crafted by a political consultant. Rule #1 in politics is to try to turn any apology around into an attack on your opponent in order to shift some of the focus away from your “mistake”.
The left have Rush`s white flag and they will proudly display it over and over.
NEVER apologize to a marxist.
The Rush apology tour makes thing worse for him.
Now they smell blood and will intensify their efforts on advertisers.
I disagree. It was terrifically strong. He turned it around on them. It was not what I expected.
I have to say that I thought Rush may be about to retire this weekend, what with losing those sponsors and all.
But I don’t think that anymore. I’m quite happy to admit that I was WRONG-O!
He has a point. Go to any left-wing nutball website and try to read more than two paragraphs without the F-bomb making an appearance.
I like bessom, a scots word that means slut.
