I am FURIOUS at Rush Limbaugh

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
And at Brian Kilmeade from Fox


First, Rush, with the defection of Spector to the Democratic party.
Rush says, "Let him take McCain with him"

And Kilmeade on Fox during a segment on Water Boarding saying,
"John McCain shouldn't give his opinion on torture because he WAS tortured"


Holy freaking cow. How stupid it that? Okay, Kilmeade let's not ask for the opinion of the only man in the Senate that has actually experienced torture, you moron.

And Rush has never been a McCain fan and I just want to lambast him for not respecting a true American hero and a member of the Republican party.

This is NOT the way to get invigorate the Republican party.

I saw McCain on Fox the other night, he was on Hannity I think it was and he is the ONLY one that has made me feel better about the future.

Sorry people, no links, I don't want to get my blood pressure up again by reading what Rush or Brian said so early on a Saturday morning.

While I'm not a huge fan of Rush (although I do listen to him sometimes while driving along with others on both the conservative and progressive radio networks), Rush has stated many times that he has the utmost respect for McCain for what he has endured, and for his service to our country. I think Rush's only beef with McCain is on his political views. During the election, Rush did NOT want McCain to be the nominee. However, again - he stated multiple times that he respected McCain very much.

I think what Rush was making a joke about was how McCain is for the most part seen by conservatives as more of a liberal than a conservative. He tends to have more views in sync with the left, than the right. Specter is that way too, which is why this move makes sense for him.

Brian Kilmeade on the other hand IMO - was out of line with that comment.

As for invigorating the Republican party, I have serious doubts about it happening any time soon. Michael Steele was a terrible choice for chairman. His views really don't mesh with true conservatives either. Additionally, he constantly says things which diminish his credibility and the ability of party members to respect him (such as throwing in the word "baby" constantly when answering questions). The Republican party has some major issues and I am seriously considering changing my registration from Republican to Independent. My views tend to be a hybrid from the Democratic party and Republican party anyways, but these days the Republican party is becoming more and more liberal on the wrong issues. There are definitely some issues that changing to the liberal view on would bolster their votes - such as pro-choice (although I have mixed views on pro-choice). Rush doesn't like what's going on with the Republican party either.

Anyways, hope this helps.

Rush sometimes gets on the wrong side. I've been catching some of his comments on the way home from work - out of Cedar Rapids radio station! While I agree with him at times, other things he says, are too far off.

You either love him or hate him.

He blew all his credibility when he pulled that stunt about meeting/not meeting O.
Anything he says is not worth getting upset about.

My Democrat friends were talking about him the other day. They can't stand him. I'm not much into the political scene so I don't know half these people they talk about. But they did say that Limbaugh was like, criticizing Michael J. Fox for his disease?!?! Unnecessary.

Rush indeed respects McCain's service to our country. So do I. However, that does not mean that it is disrespectful to criticize McCain's politics. The Senator has served his country honorably in wartime, but as a politician he is not off-limits to criticism because of that fact, nor should he be. Sen. McCain unfortunately represents much of what is wrong with the GOP these days. Until he, and many other Republicans find their way back to their conservative roots, the party will continue to struggle.

I have no respect for Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh and his ilk (on both sides of the spectrum) are only out to stir up their "base," and shore up their own ratings.

I would much rather see someone of the Republican persuasion offering some actual ideas and solutions rather than just bashing Democrats.

Call it wishful thinking but I would really, REALLY like to see the far right and far left meet somewhere in the middle. It is so depressing to see how divided this country is.

I know Rush doesn't agree with McCain's politics and that is okay but to insult him and say, "Spector can take McCain with him" is out of line IMO.

I'm not a huge Rush fan either. He is too partisan for me. I nearly always agree with Bill O'Reilly though, and he is an independent.

I lost a lot of respect for McCain after the election when he didn't come to Sarah Palin's defense with all the badmouthing and hate mongering she was receiving from within the campaign staff! McCain lost my support then and there. I hope Chris Simcox beats his socks off in the next election (AZ senate seat, 2010).

I noticed he didn't sound too intelligent when he was speaking on one of the morning shows last week. I agree wholeheartedly.
