    Even Rupert Murdoch has more credibility than Limbaugh - so what does that have to say about John Boehner?

    You have a problem with him presenting his plan to the media and through the media the people?

    We complain about transperancy. How politicians are doing things behind closed doors without sharing anything with the people. Boehner is transperant and now that's bad because he had the audacity to talk about his plan to the American people on the Rush Limbaugh show?

    What is wrong with you people?

    Calling Rush Limbaugh "the media" is generous at best. Boehner is not transparent at all. He's just making sure he doesn't get out of line with Rush.

    Oh come on, you know damn well that he didn't show it to "the media" to be transparent; he was asking Limbaugh for his blessing. If Rush were to have had a problem with it, the address would have been changed. We're not sure it wasn't.

    Let me guess, I am supposed to be outraged.

    Guess what, I wasn't outraged when I found out Pelosi used to used liberal media outlets to get to her base for important issues either. I guess it has something to do with that pesky 1st Amendment everyone hates.

    Rush isn't media, Rush is an entertainer and that's it!

    Could anyone imagine what the Right would say if Obama told Ellen DeGeneres he was going to use the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling before he told anyone else! :cool: :lol:

    Calling him a reporter would be generous. Since he is the number 1 radio host in the entire country there is no doubt he is part of the media.
