Rush Limbaugh: "intelligent, open discussion"

I do find that funny.

Limbaugh – and the rest of his party want the American government to fail – which isn’t surprising at all. Why would they want a Democrat administration to work and be successful?

But that has been said. Now that Limbaugh has claimed (unofficially) to be the real leader of the GOP he wants Obama to grace his show – now if that isn’t looking for listeners I don’t know what is.

You have to admire the fat bastard – he is milking all this free publicity for all it is worth. How many more have tuned into his tirade of complete bollox? Who knows and who cares, but old fatty will be paid one hell of a lot of cash for it. But that is what he is all about – he is a typical Republican, all for themselves and to hell with what is happening out in the wider world.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh challenged President Obama to a verbal showdown Wednesday, calling on him to visit his talk show for an “intelligent, open discussion” on issues like health care and taxes.

“If you can win at this, then come here and beat me at my own game, and get rid of me once and for all, and show all the people of America that I am wrong,” said Limbaugh. “If you take me out, if you can wipe me out in a debate and prove to the rest of America that what I say is senseless and wrong, do you realize you will own the United States of America?”

*Shrugs and shakes head*

What I do find odd is Limbaugh believing that Obama is so low in intellect that he will go onto the show and let the fat twat shout down/over him. Just how retarded are the Republicans in believing what the tub-man says? Quite if you take the response from those who are elected to represent the electorate who just happen to be in Rush Limbaugh’s party.

Limbaugh also accused the White House of orchestrating an attack on him, telling his listeners that the Obama team is demonizing the radio host since Bush left office. He said the effort was being spearheaded by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who Limbaugh refers to as the “power behind the throne.”

“Don’t let his effeminate nature and his ballerina past mislead you on this. He may look effeminate (he was a ballerina at one time) but he has the feral instincts of a female rat defending its young,” Limbaugh said.

“I’m calling. I’m ready. I’ll do everything I can to facilitate it. You’re a very courageous man, Mr. President. I am, after all, just The Last Man Standing,” Limbaugh said.

Isn’t it the demented that feel they have to re-fight a lost fight? Last man standing? Oh dear Lord!

    I tried, I really did, to stay away from Limbaugh commentary. But alas, I’ve got to take you on, Will.

    #1) Rush Limbaugh has never said he wants the American government, economy, or people to fail. You can post whatever 10-second sound byte you want, but the truth of the matter is that is not what he was talking about and if you actually listened to his show that much would be perfectly clear.

    #2) Limbaugh has never claimed to be the leader of the GOP. In fact, he doesn’t consider himself “Republican” – he feels he is conservative and the closest party to that at the moment is the GOP. He feels (and rightly so) that he is the most prominent voice and de facto leader of the conservative movement, not the Republican party.

    #3) Rush isn’t doing this for publicity – he doesn’t need to. He has the largest radio audience by leaps and bounds. Nearly 20 million people listen to him, do you really think he is doing something like this just to make that number higher? Come on, you have a little more common sense than that.

    #4) President Obama has brought this upon himself. When in our history did it become okay for the President to call out media personalities? Did Bush go around on national television saying that if Democrats stopped listening to Keith Olbermann, we’d all be in a better place? Heck no! The President should concern himself with Presidential duties, not petty sideline bickering. If he wants to act like a child, he’d better be ready for a schoolyard fight…

    Lastly, I personally think it’s a stupid idea to challenge Obama to a debate. Debates should only be had among candidates and on the floor of the Capitol – end of story. If you want to invite him onto the show, fine, but let it be to talk about his policies to the American people instead of a shouting match. With 20 million people listening, Rush’s show would be an excellent outlet for the President to open up and talk directly to the American people.

  2. Matt says:

    Yes, Obama directs government policy. But your initial statement implies that Obama’s policies are best for the country. Rush, myself, and others feel the other way around – leading us to the conclusion that IF he succeeds in his policies, America will suffer. It’s as simple as that, and if you can’t see a difference I feel for you, I really do.

    So now apologies are a sign of subservience? Anyone that Howard Dean apologizes to after belittling them on national TV becomes the DNC leader by default?

    Rush Limbaugh does not make money based on ad revenue – he gets a salary (approx. 30 million). If he gets a raise because of that, fine, but that’s a decision made by the radio station. This is America after all.

    Look, this really is a non-story: the Left no longer has evil Bush and evil Cheney in office to whine about and now they need to create someone to attack. This is nothing new out of Rush Limbaugh…why is it such a big deal right now? Oh, that’s right, we need to distract America from spending trillions upon trillions of dollars.

    And by the way, liberals need to quit building up Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal as the promising, new face of the Republican party: MOST OF US HATE THEM!!! Trust me, you won’t see either get more than 10% in the primaries…

    I think it’s brilliant the way the Democrats have positioned Rush “Oxy Contin Addict” Limbaugh as the face and voice of the GOP. And Steele isn’t the first in recent weeks to kiss that fat blowhard’s behind and probably won’t be the last.

    The blog looks great, Will!

  5. Matt says:

    No, Will, what over half of Americans want is not void. The point I am making is that the reason Rush wants President Obama to fail is because in his opinion (and mine), those policies will not help America. It’s not a blanket statement that “all Americans should see it this way”, rather it’s expressing a point of view against President Obama’s principles and ideologies. You are taking your point of view and applying it to everyone, while Rush is taking his point of view and applying it only to himself for other people to listen to. Now if he had said “Everyone in America should hope for Obama to fail”, that’s a completely different story.

    Rush is not a self-identified Republican: he considers himself conservative. Labeling him as a GOP all-star is misleading, for if you listened at all during the campaigns, he beat up on Senator McCain more than anyone.

    Maybe you mistook my condemnation of Governors Palin and Jindal to be an endorsement of Rush – it wasn’t. I don’t know who should lead the GOP party because I can’t see a clear answer.

    Ella reinforces my last point: now that Bush and Cheney are out, there’s no one in Washington to direct liberal hate at so Rush has been elevated to “GOP leader” status. After all, it’s really easy to hate him (in all honesty).

    You’re still my favorite blogger, though!

    Matt- First, please don’t ascribe emotions to me. Hate is a very strong word, one I seldom use, let alone experience and he’s not worthy of the time or energy hate requires. He’s just an ant at a picnic.

    So I don’t hate Limbaugh. I do think he’s a pontificating, shit-stirring, opportunistic megalomaniac who is all veneer and who has laughed all the way to the bank but is not getting the last laugh, much to his surprise. Awww…pobrecito.

    And surely you read Plouffe’s column?

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
