Bob and Tom is the most popular morning show in the nation. I wasn't making it up, I checked their website first.
I never said anyone did say that it was only for Americans. I was just pointing out that someone who may be culturally valuable here is a nothing to the rest of the world. I also never said that he caused people to hate America.
And it has nothing to do with patriotism, being opinionated, his wealth, or anything else in your argument that begins to sound quite a bit like the "they hate our freedom" speeches Bush gives all the time.
I meant, quite simply, he's a big fat jerk. He's a hypocrite. He's a liar. He's obnoxious. And quite a good number of his listeners love him for it. Which is fine, of course, he can do whatever he wants and people can listen to whatever they want. But IMO, Rush Limbaugh is just another shock jock with a talk show.
As for the global warming thing, yes, his site today says that global warming is "It's politics, not science. Feeeeelings, not facts" (his extra ee's). The way he talks about taxes is completely misleading, making it seem like he's the bearer of a huge tax load when half the recent tax cuts went to the top 1/3% of wealth. Our middle class has gotten poorer and our upper class has gotten richer. But not if you listen to Rush Limbaugh, who seems to have very selective fact checkers.
No, you didn't say Rush *caused* people to hate America. What you said, which I quoted from your previous post, was that "Rush is exactly what so many people around the world hate about America." I just tried to imagine what it was *exactly* about Rush that corresponds to hatred of America by "many people around the world". Glad to know that "it has nothing to do with his patriotism, being opinionated, his wealth" or, as you point out, "anything else in (my) argument".
So let me see if I understand this... you go on to say "I meant, quite simply, he's a big fat jerk. He's a hypocrite. He's a liar. He's obnoxious". Is that why "many people..hate America"? They think we're big fat jerks who are obnoxious, hypocritical liars? Hopefully, I've got it right, now.
BTW, thank you for comparing my comments to the President's speeches.
