  • 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...

    The killings in south Afghanistan came after two senior U.S. officers were gunned down in the heart of Afghanistan's Interior Ministry on Saturday by what Afghan security officials say was a police intelligence official. That attack raised questions about NATO's strategy of replacing large combat units with advisers as the alliance tries to wind down the war

    Last Thursday on this broadcast I spoke with you about the despicable groveling and pandering to Afghani Muslims by this communist Democrat regime under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is). 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...

    A suicide bomber detonated a car full of explosives Monday at the front gate of a military airfield in eastern Afghanistan, an attack that follows a week of deadly violence over the burning of Qurans at an American base that has strained U.S.-Afghan military relations. At least nine people were killed and 12 wounded in the early morning explosion near the front gate of the airport in Jalalabad, Gen. Abdullah Hazim Stanikzai, the provincial police chief, said. There were no NATO casualties. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying it was in retaliation for the burning of Qurans at...

    Demonstrators hurled grenades at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan, and a gun battle left two Afghans dead and seven NATO troops injured Sunday in the escalating crisis over the burning of Muslim holy books at an American airfield. More than 30 people have been killed, including four U.S. troops, in six days of unrest. Still, the top U.S. diplomat in Afghanistan said the violence would not change Washington's course . "Tensions are running very high here, and I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and then get on with business," Ambassador...

"For obvious force protection reasons, I have also taken immediate measures to recall all other ISAF personnel working in ministries in and around Kabul," said General John Allen, adding that the attacker's actions "will not go unanswered". The two American officers, advisers to the ministry, were fired on at close range, a U.S....

    The White House said the US president had written expressing his regret and apologies for the mishandling of religious texts at Bagram airbase north of Kabul, after Afghan labourers found charred copies while collecting rubbish at the sprawling Bagram air base. Mr Obama stressed the the incident was not intentional. The letter, which the White House said was a follow-up to a phone call earlier this week between the two leaders to discuss a “long-term partnership” between Washington and Kabul, was delivered to Karzai by US ambassador Ryan Crocker. Karzai’s office said in a statement Mr Obama had promised to...
