    I too listen to Rush and Dr Savage, been a teamster for over 30yrs.
    I listen to them because I don't have the time nor the expertise to research
    all the nonsense coming from DC.
    I found the author of that story to be just another moonbat.

    Then yeah, he was talking about you. To say that Rush and Savage are enemies of the working class is an understatement.

    A power-grabbing, socialistic-wannabe govt. is a far greater threat to this country than a radio talk show host.

    I would respond to this with logic but I've found here at the BC it's much easier to :rofl: :rofl:

    What I find pathetic is the way that the Republican Party has been reduced to groveling at the feet of Rush Limbaugh for approval.

    Limbaugh is nothing more than a hypocritical, right-wing empty suit with a drug habit....yet somehow he has become (in his own mind at least) the mouthpiece of Republicanism.

    Someone in the Republican party needs to grow a pair and tell him to shut the %$#@ up. He is driving away the moderates and anyone with an open mind who can think for themselves, and reducing the GOP to being the neocon party of right wing extremists.

    And Obama is a hypocritical, left wing empty suit with a drug habit..... but he is the President of the United States.

    It amazes me how anyone can think Limbaugh has ANY political clout. He is just an idiot on the radio! No one has to worry about him, you have to worry about the guy with the REAL power in the White House.

    Thanks for the eloquent display of logic, there. On the other hand, having a sense of humor is good...

    Prob is I can change the radio station, but last time I checked, I had to wait til 2012 to change Presidents.

    The "rags" are saying that Michelle wants to run in 2012 !! OMG!

    They are also saying she's drinking a bit much lately.

    This sounds like a troll alright.

    And the piece, what a bunch of crap. Just from a 30 second encounter the writer had a total grasp of what the driver was thinking etc.

    I knew the peice was total BS when he said the guy paid 50 grand less for the motor home than it was worth.........Actually sir, he paid what it was worth in todays economy, which was 50 grand less than the marked up and inflated price.

    But then again, with some motor homes running above a cool million, a 50 grand reduction is not that much...

    This is a little old, but I thought it was an interesting commentary on Rush:

    Reminds me of Obama mocking the Special Olympics.

    I'll listen to the righties Rush, Savage, Dennis Miller if hes still on, but also the lefties Randy rhodes, Stephanie Miller, Rachel Maddow-and i find that they are both in the ditch but on opposite sides of the road. I'd like to ride the smooth pavement in the middle of the road. I dont like the hate Savage puts out but i dont like the lefties bagging on religion either.
    The bible says its a bad idea to mix government and religion together so lets keep it the way the forefathers planned it.
    Kinda like when ur a tourist in unfamiliar territory u need to ask 3-5 people directions to a place to make sure they dont send you off into the wrong part of town.

    I have to disagree with you on this LIB, Obama was making a lame attempt at a joke that was in poor taste and backfired. Rush was clearly making fun of Michael J. Fox's disease and its affects.
    Which we should do neither

    exactly how was Rush making fun of Parkinsons or Fox? He accused Fox of exaggerating his symptoms or purposely not taking his meds for this commercial. He also went on a long rant about stem cell research and some misconceptions people have about it in general; and how politicians use this to further their cause.

    You don't believe everything Obama says is scripted? That was no off-the-cuff joke. Granted, he may have been too dense to understand what he was saying. The man repeats the same lines in his speeches if the teleprompter fouls up, for crying out loud.

    Double ditto.
    I listen to talk radio all day.
    I listen to our local libs, and rush occasionally, mark L mostly.
    I am finding my libs who supported Obama are not liking their choice.
    Hows that hope and change going for you? Just ask any loyal UAW worker from Lordstown Ohio, or many of the other plants who are closing, and or extremely limited. Just ask some of the dealerships who were profitable, and forced to close. Who had to lay off people and lose money through no fault of their own. Just ask anyone who doesnt approve of the cap and trade bill that no one read, or the health care bill which will get shoved up our :censored2:, and no one will read it. Or anyone who can listen to both sides and see that one side is not the America we want. Its so elementary.
