  • Rush Limbaugh’s Apology: Saving Conservative Line on Obamacare?

    Daily Beast ^ | 03/05/2012 | Michael Medved
    Limbaugh’s career and radio show aren’t in danger. But his professed contrition might help salvage conservatives’ most effective line of attack against Obamacare. Left-leaning pundits and activists who cackle gleefully at the prospect that current controversies will seriously damage Rush Limbaugh’s media career display their own vast ignorance of the talk-radio industry. Yes, El Rushbo’s weekend apology for crude comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke demonstrate his own recognition that these remarks fell far short of the “broadcast excellence” he regularly promises his 15 million listeners. But neither uproar from all quarters against Limbaugh’s language, nor the much-publicized phone...

    A Statement from Rush March 03, 2012 For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the...

    President Obama said his formal apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans by U.S. troops last week has "calmed things down" after the incident sparked an outbreak of violence across the country. "We're not out of the woods yet," Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Bob Woodruff at the White House. "But my criteria in any decision I make, getting recommendations from folks who are actually on the ground, is what is going to best protect our folks and make sure that they can accomplish their mission." The president's comments came just hours...

I mentioned the wimpy, dhimmi reaction by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to Muslim pressure groups’ demands that any FBI training materials that contained information deemed “offensive” to Muslims be purged from FBI curriculum. Then I commented on the pansy reaction by high-ranking members of the military and Obama’s administration in falling on their faces before the altar of Islam to profusely apologize for the so-called “accidental” burning...

    The White House press secretary told members of the press pool aboard Air Force One today that President Obama’s “sincere” apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for a Koran-burning incident “is not appropriate to show” to reporters. Jay Carney spoke with reporters for about 20 minutes as the presidential entourage flew to Florida for a speech on energy at the University of Miami. Obama’s letter to Karzai that included the apology was “a lengthy, three-page letter on a host of issues, several sentences of which relate to this matter,” according to the travel pool report. “The president, following up on...

Mr Obama stressed the the incident was not intentional.

First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years. Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns. He would ram through an unreadable law allowing the federal...

    Leaked confidential cables reveal that the Government of Japan declined to accept an offer of an apology for World War II from President Obama. The grounds for rejecting the offered were reportedly twofold. On the one hand, there was the question of credibility. Obama was seen as “a person who has given so many inappropriate apologies to unworthy recipients that the value of an apology from him on this issue is dubious.” On the other hand, there was befuddlement. “We started the war. Its unsuccessful outcome was the fruit of our own inability to carry it through to a victorious...

    Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said Monday that Turkey's demand for an Israeli apology for deaths aboard the Gaza flotilla last year constitutes "chutzpah." Speaking on Voice of Israel government-run radio, Yaalon noted that the flotilla – which pitted armed thugs against IDF soldiers, while posing as a humanitarian mission – was a provocation, and that Ankara bears some of the responsibility for this. Turkey wants to "stand Israel in the corner" and raise its own prestige in the eyes of the Arabs, Hizbullah and Hamas at Israel's expense, he added. "The Turkish policy will not change if we apologize,"...

    Earlier this month, the popular magazine Psychology Today published an article by evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa titled “Why Are Black Women Less Physically Attractive Than Other Women?" that was met, expectedly, with mass outrage. The article used data based on another study to make several claims such as "black women are objectively less physically attractive than other women" yet "subjectively consider themselves to be far more physically attractive than others." After some attempted editing of the title, the magazine retracted the post from its website in its entirety. Kanazawa in turn is facing an investigation by the London School of...

    Yes, we should. It is past time for evangelicals to express remorse and regret to Native Americans for the mistreatment they experienced at the hands of Christians throughout the history of the nation. Although President Obama signed a resolution of apology in 2009 on behalf of the nation, evangelical groups should also follow suit. It is a sad fact of American history that Christianity, at times, conspired with the government to colonize and nearly eradicate a proud and free people. Sadly, in the present, those wounds have been reopened by a representative of that same belief system, in effect, blaming...

    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan's president on Sunday rejected a U.S. apology for the mistaken killing of nine Afghan boys in a NATO air attack and said civilian casualties are no longer acceptable. According to a statement from his office, Hamid Karzai told Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, that expressing regret was not sufficient in last week's killing of the boys, ages 12 and under, by coalition helicopters. NATO has also apologized for the mistaken killings. Civilian casualties from coalition operations are a major source of strain in the already difficult relationship between Karzai's government...

    Oregon Rep. David Wu apologized Tuesday for sending photos of himself dressed in a tiger costume to aides, calling that and other behavior last fall “unprofessional” and “inappropriate” as his mental health suffered. “You shouldn’t ever send photographs of yourself in a Halloween costume, something you intend to wear to a private party a couple of nights later,” the Democrat said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” It’s just not professional, even when you’re joshing around with your kids a couple of nights before Halloween. I did send those photographs. It was unprofessional, inappropriate.” Half a dozen Wu staffers have quit...

SNCF transported 76,000 French Jews towards concentration camps during the war. "Our company drove these trains to the border," Pepy said. "It was forced to, but it did it. I want express the deep sadness and...

    She warned us...Submitted by Cal Thomas Tuesday, January 4, 2011 - 4:32pm Sarah Palin deserves an apology. When she said that the new healthcare law would lead to “death panels” deciding who gets life-saving treatment and who does not, she was roundly denounced and ridiculed. Now we learn, courtesy of one of the ridiculers — The New York Times — that she was right. Under a new policy not included in the law for fear the administration’s real end-of-life game would be exposed, a rule issued by the recess-appointed Dr. Donald M. Berwick, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and...

    Today on his show, Glenn Beck seemed particularly irked (and funny). One thing that was getting his dander up the most, was an article on Forbes.com entitled “Soros Warns U.S. Could Be On Verge Of Dictatorial Democracy, Slams Fox, Glenn Beck” and, most of all, its assertion that the host had been “falsely vilifying Soros publicly.” Beck was so angry that he demanded an apology from Forbes. Pretty interesting. What’s more interesting, is imagining whether or not this will be broached next Saturday at 11am during Forbes on Fox. First, Beck went after the author of the post, Robert Lenzner,...
