    "I am offering President Obama to come on this program -- without staffers, without a TelePrompTer, without note cards -- to debate me on the issues. Let's talk about free markets versus government control. Let's talk about nationalizing health care and raising taxes on small business...

    "Let's talk about the New Deal versus Reaganomics,'' Limbaugh said today. "Let's talk about closing Guantanamo Bay, and let's talk about sending $900 million to Hamas. Let's talk about illegal immigration and the lawlessness on the borders. Let's talk about massive deficits and the destroying of opportunities of future generations...

    " The president yesterday suggested "we're getting to the point where profits and earnings ratios are approaching that point where you want to invest." Uh, Mr. President? There is no "profits and earnings" ratio. It's "price and earnings" ratio. He's the president of the United States. He doesn't know anything about the stock market. He's admitted it before. Let's talk about it anyway.

    "Just come on this program,'' Limbaugh says to Obama. "Let's have a little debate...

    " You've debated the best! You've debated Hillary Clinton. You've debated John Edwards. You've debated Joe Biden. You've debated Dennis Kucinich. You've debated the best out there. You are one of the most gifted public speakers of our age. I would think, Mr. President, you would jump at this opportunity.

    Limbaugh dares Obama: 'Debate me': The Swamp


    NEW YORK -- March 4, 2009: Premiere Radio Networks' Rush Limbaugh today invited President Obama to appear on his show -- all travel expenses paid -- for a "one-on-one debate of ideas and policies." Limbaugh cited a report by Jonathan Martin on the Politico.com website that begins, "Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House."

    The report points to Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as leading the effort, which came in part out of polls saying younger voters in particular have a negative view of Limbaugh.

    According to a transcript on RushLimbaugh.com, Limbaugh said on Wednesday's show, "If these guys are so impressed with themselves, and if they are so sure of their correctness, why doesn't President Obama come on my show? We will do a one-on-one debate of ideas and policies. Now, his people in this Politico story, it's on the record. They're claiming they wanted me all along. They wanted me to be the focus of attention. So let's have the debate! I am offering President Obama to come on this program -- without staffers, without a teleprompter, without note cards -- to debate me on the issues. "

    The Obama cannot do that. Even though his interview with Bill O'Reilly went well, Bill was a friendly interviewer in that he isn't a partisan hack and stayed away from populist nonsense. Bill was firm, but The Obama came across very well in that arena.

    Up against Rush, in that much more informal and partisan setting, there is no way The Obama can come out smelling good. He's far too intelligent to even try it.

    Limbaugh knows that.

    Hannity has had a standing invitation for The Obama to come on either his TV or radio shows, for months.

    Why would Obama care to go on Rush's show to debate him? Hell, I CHALLENGE RUSH LIMBAUGH TO DEBATE ON US MESSAGEBOARD. IF HE DOESN'T, then he is a giant pussy.


    now... let's see how quickly Rush logs on. I am about as important to Rush as Rush is to Obama. You people want Rush on that kind of platform? Put your vote where your big mouths are and get him out from his little radio cave.

    Indeed, it looks like you took the suggestion seriously enough to contemplate his chances of "smelling good". So, again, if Rush won't take my challenge seriously why would you imagine that Obama would take a challenge from a radio entertainer seriously?

    I didn't say he would, or should. But he would be alot closer to doing that with Limbaugh, than Limbaugh would ever do with you. Because Limbaugh, like him or not, IS somebody.

    You're not.

    Limbaugh "is somebody"? What, EXACTLY, are his credentials that should temp an American President? Should Bush have gone at it with Randi Rhodes? She's somebody on the radio, yes? If you can't fathom the ridiculous, and let's face it LAUGHABLE, nature of some radio entertainer challenging the President then I guess it's pretty clear why you don't get my farcical challenge to Limbaugh.

    :thup:
