First he rails against McCain now he's calling for riots to make sure he gets elected? How does anyone take this hypocite seriously...

"He said the riots would ensure a Democrat is not elected as president, and his listeners have a responsibility to make sure it happens."

If this is really true, isn't this criminal speech?

What a patriot.

He might get his wish. Sadly.

The democrats need to draft a candidate at this point to unite the party. Otherwise, this one is in the books.

Exactly, inciting a riot is a criminal act. I do not understand for the life of me why people take this draft dodging, pill popping asshole seriosuly. I mean this is a guy who got a ton of deferments and out of the draft because of some kind of 'cyst' then he has the nerve to say that John Kerry's Purple Hearts were not legitimate. The Kerry shot himself story has always been bullshit.. there were only two people on the boat, Kerry and a guy who corroborates his story. NONE of those swift boat veterans group that Rush promoted were anywhere near the events of that night, and some of them greatly embellished their own records it later came out.

I should think for those to the right of me on things, they would want a better spokesperson than Rush Limbaugh. I guess it goes to show.

As far as this race goes, I dont like Clinton, dont like Obama and dont like McCain. The two best candidates were Biden and Richardson and the party kicked these people to the curb. I guess what I am saying is they already have enough embarrassment to look forward to in Denver without Rush complicating things.

I'm eagerly awaiting 2861's defense of this statement.

It could be good.

if there is a riot, perhaps they'll arrest him and throw his ass in jail so we don't have to hear from him for a while.

Sorry, but, I doubt there are enough listeners based on demographics, to be able to blame Rush for the riots that will occur.

I am pretty sure the Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton's prediction of riots would be much easier to prove causality.

But, carry on, in the FYM way, and target Rush.

LOL

Rush must be sniffing glue since he doesn't have many brain cells left.
I don't want to go to Denver this summer because the traffic there is hell. it will be worse during the convention.
Besides we'll have riots in the cities once the food gets way to high. Did anyone see the reports of Americans stock pilling food?

I don't know

my little dog 'sparky' climbed up on my kitchen counter and got a box of Raisin Brand and scattered it all over my house


I blame
Operation Chaos for both of these calamities

"...I can think," Limbaugh said.


That remains up for debate.

RUSH: I, as the commander-in-chief of US Operation Chaos, am going to tell Obama how he can end Operation Chaos.

I condemn, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Rush that have caused this controversy. Rush has used incendiary language to express views that have the potential not only to widen the political divide, but views that denigrate both the greatness and the goodness of our nation -- that rightly offend conservatives and liberals alike. But for some, nagging questions remain.

Given my politics, and my professed values and ideals, there will no doubt be those for whom my statements of condemnation are not enough.

Why associate myself with conservatives in the first place, they may ask? Why not change the dial?

And I confess that if all that I knew of Rush were these few snippets from all his years of broadcasting, or if his radio show conformed to the caricatures being peddled by some posters, there is no doubt that I would react in much the same way.

But the truth is, that isn't all that I know of the man. The man I started listening to more than 20 years ago is a man who helped introduce me to conservatism, a man who spoke to me about our obligations to torture detainees; to lower taxes on the rich and to blame all our troubles on the gays and Mexicans.

I can no more disown him than I can disown the conservative community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother. He is a part of me. And he is a part of America, this country that I love.

So how do you REALLY feel about Rush? If I read your satire of Obama's speech correctly, you feel that his comments are completely unacceptable and that any conservative with a conscience should immediately disassociate him or herself completely from Rush (as you apparently feel Obama should have done with Rev. Wright).

Or do you laud Obama's speech and the point you're making is that that conservatives should not be called upon to condemn Rush because of a few inflammatory comments; that a conservative counting Rush an influence doesn't mean they have to agree with everything he says.

Which is it?

Gosh, the cyncism in this country if astounding.
