How often do you listen to Rush? Because he makes logical arguments with history and numbers to back him up on a daily basis. Go read transcripts on his website.

I could say the same thing to liberals. Do you think people like Barack Obama and Keith Olbermann follow your advice here? Because they fit perfectly what you just described here.

you should read what some of his law school students said about obama when he came to lecture. it is actually quite the opposite. also, when making policy decisions, he does listen to every side. thats one of the good things about Obama. Olbermann is obviously not like that, but he doesnt use the word conservative the way that many republicans will use the word liberal.

He didn't seem too fond (or even aware) of the tea party protests- which included millions of people who had different views than his own. Rather, he seemed quite dismissive of them.

Don't kid yourself. Of course he does. He loves calling anyone who doesn't believe in Democratic policies a racist, a homophobe, a Mexican-hater, and much, much more. He's a man who will sit there in silence as people like Garofalo call conservatives racists and as morons like Michael Musto launch absolutely vile garbage at Carrie Prejean- people with whom he disagrees.

So people have a lot of nerve to say that its conservatives who need to "listen more" and be more "open-minded."

The tea party people were protesting the Bush tax cuts... you do realize that ? the obama taxes have not even been implemented yet.

they were also saying "eliminate all taxes", which is so impractical, and most of them dont realize that they are getting a tax cut under obama so, yes, I did listen to the tax party people, but I have come to learn that most of them are uniformed.

Did Obama even say anything about them? I wasn't aware he said anything.

And is wasn't millions, by Rush's account, close to 300,000.

oh forgot to respond to this. yes, i listen to Rush about 2 times a week, and I watch O'Reilly and hannity every now and then too.

Even though I am a total secular progressive I like to hear all sides to make sure that I am educated about all beliefs and understand all sides. even though, I usually end up totally disagreeing with them, I still find it very entertaining (especially Bill O putting on a show).

why would he care? Bush was incredibly dismissive of the anti-war protests, and those brought hundreds of thousands of people out into the street in cities across the world. we're talking about a few hundred people here and there in this country who can't even agree on what they're angry about, had no coherent message, and were making a laughably inaccurate historical parallel.

while i agree that there is a tendency, on both sides, to not only lampoon and create straw men out of those who disagree with them, but also to attribute the worst possible motives for whatever belief, i do not think we're dealing with equals when you compare people like Rush and Hannity to Olberman and Garofalo.

aside from a few posters on Daily Kos, i cannot think of a left wing equivalent to Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin (who your posts very clearly echo).

Did you guys see Sean Hannity's "Tree Of Liberty and Crate of Socialism?"

Colbert did a whole segment on it.

I just saw that. I actually felt a bit embarrassed for him.

According to Wanda Sykes, Rush Limbaugh is a terrorist, should be waterboarded, and his kidneys should fail. And Obama seemed to finds this amusing.

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/toby_ha..._limbaugh_dead


YouTube - WH Correspondents' Dinner: Wanda Sykes thinks Rush Limbaugh is a fine fellow.

The excuse of this being a "joke" won't work here. This crosses the line.

Just imagine if the tables were turned...

PLEASE!!!

Bush wouldn't laugh at jokes about Olbermann?

Why you worship this man(Rush) I will never understand, honestly it f**king scares me, but you do and that's your right... but the man has a LOOOOONG history of racism, one of the more recent the Magic Negro song he commissioned...

So can you blame her? It's just a joke. You tell me where she crossed the line, and I'll show you where you're a hyprocite.

What allegedly crosses the line in the US wouldn't even count as a start in German political humor.
