    Talk about hot air seeking a vacuum. I hope he does become the one . They will get maybe 10% of the vote next time. Hell, maybe he will run with Sarah.

    One of your elected officials actually apologized to him for criticizing Rush's remarks.:cuckoo:

    First off this was written by a leftist twit who just doesn't get it. Anyone who has listened to Rush knows his sense of humor and his comments in reply to the press sec. really wan't 'taking the bait'. And if you listen to Rush for any length of time or any right wing radio station you will hear them chastise the right almost more often than they do the left these days.

    His comments about wanting Obama to fail were addressed before, but was put best by Rush himself when he said that if Obama advances policies he likes he would hope he would succeed. If he advances policies he doesn't support, he hopes he fails. I'm not sure how that warrants incredulous indigination by the left or anybody.

    I don't think Rush needs or should be the person to be the new face of the GOP. For the time in needs to be a politician that actually exemplifies conservative values in his actions, not just words. Rush along with other radio hosts, (Jason Lewis comes to mind) can be is exactley what they are. A voice for the rest of us who obviously despise leftist, big government, nanny stateism who dont' have as a big a microphone and simply hope that are elected officials listen.

    Rush typifies the right wing conservatives, all he seems to do is criticize others. I've only heard him a few times as one can only take stupidity in small portions. Does he ever talk about anything positive? What did he say while Bush was wrecking the budget and the world I wonder?

    Yes you are deranged, Willow. No one talked about hate here. More of the katnip, My Dear?

    Now speaking of hate: That is what Rush is all about. Getting the right to hate the left.


    You really don't have any idea of what you are talking about, do you?

    Listen to the add. They play Rush saying "I hope he fails" then when the pundit is talking to Ann Coulter they deny he said it.

    This is one even for the right. Ann is on in all her head flashing glory. Fox special.

    All you horny righties who won't admit to sins of the flesh, can vicariously lust after her/him?

    He says absolutely nothing. Rush praises Bush without ruining his reputation. Conservatives flock around Rush because of the false sense of enlightenment he oozes out to the Right-wing. Dennis Miller is conservative as well but at least he is somewhat funny.
