There is one CONSTANT in all of this discussion......

The radical Conservatives will always.....Always.....be critical of President Obama.....on everything.

Be ahead of the game.....predict it.....before they do it.

It was nice to hear President Bush take issue with Limbaugh's comments. I'm neither a fan nor a detractor for Limbaugh, but what he's been saying about the Haitian relief operations hasn't been at all helpful. There are plenty of legitimate issues to disagree about without trying to add this one to the mix.

The president who abysmally failed us, lied to us, tore the whole world into war, and has put more dead on our hands than any president in history deigns to give his blessing to someone who acts as a president should.

What's wrong in this picture?

"More dead on our hands than any president in history?" That's not even historically accurate.

I just hope Clinton keeps an eye on him. He'll be down there trying to tell the Haitians its good to be working for 50 cents an hour.

I do wish people would just ignore this sorry excuse for a human, this guy "gets of" on all this criticism, fate, kharma, gods will, whatever you want to label it, will sort out this guy, maybe not today or tomorrow, but he will get his comeupence, you can put your money on it.

Sorry Sam Stein, but I did not see or hear any "push-back".
I saw an unwillingness to make a clear statement !

Actually, I have seen no clear statement by almost anyone in the public eye (exeptions: Keith Olberman, Ed Schulz, Rachael Maddow).

I would like to hear something to the extend of : "This sort of corrupted, inflammatory hate speech is neither constitutional free speech, nor serves the greater interest or good for our society, thus needs to be reconsidered as something we want to keep on the air."

I'm sorry to hear that you are a fan of such hatred. A person is judged more by the company they CHOSE to keep than by their enemies.

Okay - back to the point. Haiti and not making this about politics. I guess some can do it, while it takes others a long time. No different from Rush if you cannot focus on what is important and keep up with the political crap, right?

Of course you realize the main topic of discussion... This should be about the disaster, and what we can do to help. We did, and it's an abomination that others are discouraging through the dittoheads. Thus the discussion.

Yeah whatever we do don't pay any attention to the man behind the curtain.

"I don't know if -- what they're talking about ......First of all, it takes time to get the supplies in place. That shouldn't deter them. In other words, there's an expectation-- amongst people that things are going to happen quickly.... there is a great reservoir of good will that wants to help"

Jeeze, he hasn't become anymore comprehensible.

Yes, time to forget this nobody. How about if we hang on every word of someone who actually matters and does something to make the world better?

Great point!

The Previous Occupant to the White House was classy and apolitical in his remarks. Bless him!

Would that his former vice president adopt that same approach. Alas, too late, the Cheney is out of the Bottle!

I agree with an earlier post that questions the position of the GOP regarding these latest, clearly racist, albeit damaging, comments. We hear a former president through the media explaining the dire situation, and the need for help. Not Carter, but Bush. And the questions that should have been asked of him clearly weren't. The "mainstream media" needs to sharpen their pencils at this obvious invite to a story that everybody wants to hear. How can these blatantly racist statements, and a discouragement for help in this situation be seemingly unnoticed by the very tribe that support their talking head? Why has noone in the ranks spoken out against this obvious do-no-gooder? How many close brushes with stupidity via his comments is enough? They know his history. Those who are in cohorts with this dude should really be afraid of allowing him to be attached to the conservative party. If I was on the side of conservatism, I would be scared, and rightfully so. What an ignoramus. If he were in my employ, he would be fired, immediately, with others cleaning up his mess. I want to hear someone shouting from the Belfries. Boycotting will only feed the fire. Write to the sponsors. That will get their attention. This thing needs to have his microphone turned off.

Rush is not doing anything different than the left wing talking heads do everyday. It's all entertainment.

Totally disagree.
09:20 PM on 01/18/2010
Like who?

I promise you that the number of right-wing talking heads who cross the line outweighs the number of left-wing ones by at least a 100 to 1 ratio. There is _no_ liberal equivalent to the conservative, mostly AM-based talk radio.

Now as for Rush not having a charitable bone in his body, I challenge this website and everyone who subscribes to it to match Rush's pledges to his Leukemia Cure-A-Thon where Limbaugh holds an annual fundraising telethon called the "EIB Cure-a-Thon"[80] for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. He's personally contributed millions to the Leukemia Foundations yearly Cure-a-Thon, $400,000 in 2008 alone.

He also listed on Ebay a letter signed by 41 senators that was critical of him and bought it back, raising 1.2 million for Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation that provides scholarships for the children of Marines and law enforcement officers killed in action.

Now how much have you done that qualifies you to criticize him in this area? Oh I know, you're a leftist and because he can claim it as charity it doesn't count. Isn't that about the size of it?
09:22 PM on 01/18/2010
good for Rush for having a charitable streak.

if only he'd skip the mean-spirited put-downs, the open call for the President to fail in his term of office.

imagine if Rush didn't make racially-charged statements about the President? imagine if he wished President Obama would succeed wildly, so Americans and people across the world are better off?

"He's personally contributed millions to the Leukemia Foundations yearly Cure-a-Thon, $400,000 in 2008 alone."

That's pocket change for him. It's like you or me dropping a dollar in a Salvation Army kettle.

Why is Rush Limbaugh given so much space? I understand only four search and rescue teams were sent by us and they just worked the places UN and NGO people were staying.

They could have at least gotten the date right. Nothing else in the letter is.
