January 28, 2009



With all of America unempoyed and the world on the brink of catastorphe (see Sunday Herald: Britain on verge of collapse / UK faces bankruptcy and national debt default), I wonder where all those "big bucks" will come from?

OH yeah, sorry, forgot to keep these comments in the style the blog -- so very correct above to "... will come from to you from old, feeble-minded, beer-gutted whacko?"


I thought Obama was teying to marginalized Big pants. Looks like the fringe right is going to be used also.


I can't wait to see how much money the Democrats can glean from Rush. Can they make him into money? I doubt it.


As if you weren't rooting for President George W. Bush's policies to fail? Let's be honest here.


He hates America and loves his paycheck. It's that simple. His followers have subscribed to anti-liberalism with the same devoutness the subscribe to religion despite the fact that their own economic philosophy has been proven extremely hazardous.

Conservatives are the new muslims wishing death to America.


What a fricken stupid statement that was. I'm no Rush fan but your idiotic conclusions spewed in that statement shows what a 'little' mind you have. You will forever be discounted by me...hope that makes your day.


Your reactionary, redneck, knuckle-dragging comments are offensive and rude. I have never wished death on America but to suggest that, even jokingly, betrays your cultural ignorance and rightist extremism.

If President Obama were to re-educate thuggish Americans like you, I would vote to have you be one of the first sent to a training and awareness camp. (And, by the way, cute way to diminish my culture by using a lowercase "M" - real class act you are, moron.)


Saxitoxin; I wouldn’t bet on that. Obama made a mint during his election. So my presumption is this will be a message played sometime in the future. But my guess is the ad was to gather e-mail addresses. I presume when you try to send your comment, that is what the ad is asking for, it will request your e-mail. This will be used later for soliciting.

Mykelbe; What are you talking about??? Bush’s’ policies did fail.


Isn't it something that he can outright claim he wants the US of A to fail? And people still make excuses for him? And listen to him?

When you want the leader of the free world to fail, you are choosing failure for yourself.

Nobody wanted Bush to fail on ridding the world of terrorism. Too bad he went to Iraq instead.


Sometimes Mike Malloy is right on. This is one of those nights.

"Right on cue, the White House press awakens from its Bush slumber
by Eric Boehlert"


"Nobody wanted Bush to fail on ridding the world of terrorism. Too bad he went to Iraq instead."

The truth is; after the war in Iraq began, the far left/progressives started wanting him to fail - for selfish political advantage over someone they already hated for the way he won in 2000.

"Conservatives are the new muslims wishing death to America."

To put it nicely, a totally irresponsible statement that sounds like a 4-year old throwing a tantrum.


Someone please explain how Obama can fail while somehow leaving the well being of America perfectly intact.

This notion that libs wanted Bush to fail is idiotic. We disagreed with his policies because it was and is our belief that they ultimately lead to failure, and fail he most certainly did. We never wished that he fail for the sake of sabotaging conservative ideology.

You self described "ditto heads" have an allergic reaction to anything liberal. If Rush by chance says something you disagree with you will give it a second thought and then come around to seeing things his way within a few short minutes. If Rush's audience was known for being a lively controversial bunch the term dittohead wouldn't exist as we know it.


"When you want the leader of the free world to fail, you are choosing failure for yourself."

Now I know why you voted for Obama Joanie. When one takes pride in comparing the leader of the free world to Hitler by refering to him as Bushler, they want that man to fail. Doncha think!!!


And I just sent another nice message urging Rush to keep doing what he does best. Nothing better than using the Libs own site to make them look foolish. Imagine Rush getting letters from them praising him, he'll have a field day.


I notice this blog (& it's posters) have been strangely silent on the Illinois Governor fiasco...whereas it's being discussed plenty on talk radio. What gives?


Oh my! DUH...I just realized he doesn't have an (R) after his name.


Wasn't that you who said something about staying on topic?


Hahaha...only helping to confirm what I implied.
