InI hope he fails.' (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here's the point. Everybody thinks it's outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, 'Oh, you can't do that.' Why not? Why is it any different, what's new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what's gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don't care what the drive-by story is. I would be honored if the drive-by media headlined me all day long: 'Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.' Somebody's gotta say it."

This resulted in a sharp decline even among Mr. Limbaugh's loyal flock. So he wisely accepted a widely anticipated interview with Hannity in which he back-peddled the statement to mean that as long as Obama emulated Reagan instead of FDR, he hopes that he "doesn't succeed".

Bin Laden thanks Christian extremists for their support

In a videotaped message issued to mark the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden praised Christian extremists for inflaming the Islamic world with their anti-Muslim actions and rhetoric.

He spoke particularly of plans to build an Islamic-based cultural center in New York City and of a Florida preacher threatening to burn the Koran.

The tape, apparently recorded on Saturday, was aired Monday on the Arabic-language network Al Jazeera and was confirmed as authentic by the FBI.

“Lately, with your President Obama reaching out to the Muslim world and troops leaving Iraq it was becoming more difficult to recruit and convince our Muslim brothers and sisters that America is out to destroy Islam, but then you guys lose your marbles and all I have to do is roll the videotape. I don’t even have to make things up or give a fiery speech,” bin Laden said on the videotape. “Every time Americans do something stupid like the Abu Ghraib scandal, the reaction against a New York Islamic center or this man in Florida threatening to burn the Koran it makes my job so much easier. We’re going to exceed our recruitment goals for the month thanks to you guys. ” (continued…)

That's SO not an authentic story .... I just started skimming it ..... but it seems to make a pretty good point ..., yes, Christian extremists do play right into OBL's hands, and plans, for sure.

Peace to all.

Y'all haven't listened to us in the past. What should one letter from a few of us change that?

As a Navy Veteran who served two tours in Iraq (Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom OEF/OIF) you can add my name to this list. We fought and continue to fight for the rights of Afghans and in return make our homeland safer by placing a vigiland eye to our foes across the land. Very important that those here state side understand that Taliban and extremist leaders hold any little thing we do here as a reason to rally the oposition against US Forces overseas and make a good day a horrible one in a matter of minutes.

Does anybody else see the irony that this "small but growing" group wants us to forgo some of the rights the military is supposedly fighting for us?
04:14 PM on 09/13/2010
The issue is not whether one has a Constitutional right to be a idiot. The issue these soldiers are addressing is that one must consider and take responsibility for the consequences of one's actions.

They "conservatives" have one or two talking points on this or any major issue that they circle back to, endlessly, no matter how many times it has been debunked.
04:19 PM on 09/13/2010
I am not sure speaking your mind insofar as your perceptions of a religion are concerned makes you an idiot...even if you vociferously disagree with the conclusions....Then again, it don't make you a blinkin genius either.

The twist will be that it won't appear on Fox. If it doesn't follow the pre-existing narrative, it has no place on Fox.

This American may disagree with the government but I sure support the troops in the field.  
These brave and patriotic citizens are putting their lives on the line and the idiocy of the Cults of Jesus Inc in their "perpetual victimization" state of willful ignorant hate are the foundation of this Islamphobia fanned by Faux Spews fairly unbalanced Tabloid TV and Holy Republican Cults of Jesus Inc insaniTEA of propaganda and lies.
I pray that they find their "end of times" as Dubya and the Wrecking Crew were searching for the demons "Gogg and Magogg in the Middle East" as Dubya confessed to the French Prime Minister.  May they go to their rapture rapidly and leave we "secular socialists" to peace on this earth.

It's good to see so many of the "good old boy's" with solid heads on their shoulders!
03:45 PM on 09/13/2010
So tell me, how patriotic is it to put our military in danger. Bravo to these vets who are standing up and putting it straight - don't endanger the troops because of your stupid prejudices. grow up and act like and adult American. You don't have to like everyone on America to be an American, but you can tolerate those you don't agree with.

Aren't we just sweeping under the rug the fact that people will kills us if we burn a book? THAT SHOULD BE PROTESTED!

And what do you think we might be able to do about that? Those people are either extremists, or being manipulated by extremists, just like so many in the U.S.

And, like so many in the U.S., the fact that they "give good news", makes them seem a lot stronger, and representative of a lot more people, than they actually are; really.

And they do get pretty riled up; they're kind of like tigers, and Pastor Terry Jones was kind of like a geriatric housecat with an attitude problem .... and how long did it take to get him to listen to any kind of reason?

In terms of the flag-burning, America-hating extremists you see on the news:

As long as they hate us, they'll probably threaten to kill us.

As long as they believe the people who lie to them, they'll continue to hate us.

Simple as that.

Peace to all.
