Stop Listening to Rush

rush_limbaughBarack Obama (BO) told a group of lawmakers on Friday (01/23) "...You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." Apparently:

  • BO has listened to Rush and doesn't like what he has to say.
  • BO is afraid other people listen to Rush.
  • BO is REALLY afraid that if people listen to Rush, they may quit listening to HIM.

I don't listen to Rush; not that I don't like him. I used to listen, but my schedule changed at work and now it's just not convenient. I do listen to Glenn Beck when I have time. I'm a Glenn Beck Insider, so I stream the broadcasts when it's convenient. I also listen to Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham on the way home from work. I don't agree with everything those radio personalities say--but I do agree with a lot of it. I don't need them to say things for me to have an opinion. I can read and I can listen to what BO says/is saying and the bottom line is: He don't think like me...nor any of the people I associate with.

I didn't vote for BO. I believe he will spend and tax us into the biggest mess this country has ever seen. I believe he will work fervently to limit or take away some of the rights we currently enjoy as Americans. I believe he will push (via The Fairness Doctrine) to quiet voices like Rush, Beck and Hannity. I think he is bad for America and that it will not be long before even those who voted for him will be asking themselves: "What have we done?" to which I will reply, "who's this we you're talking about?

Know what? I may have to start listening to Rush again...

It's definitely going to be an interesting ride, that's for sure. I love it when Rush makes important people squirm.

I used to be an rabid Rush listener but, he has lost touch with me. I enjoyed his parody stuff and the comedy he included in his show. He has taken on a more important air about himself and doesn‘t do much of that anymore. That’s just my perception. If I happen to be in the car, I will listen as opposed to the old days when I would go out of my way to tune in.

Some of the newer folks have taken up the slack in my opinion. Beck, as you mentioned Mark Levin has his moments. Levin come on around 6 PM in my neck of the woods. That’s around the time when I might be working on the hot rod, so I listen then. Neal Boortz is another interest one.

I miss Air America radio!! I used to LOVE to listen the folks there. They were ALL so miserable when Bush was president. But, alas, that has gone by the wayside in my area in Florida. They used to simucast on the internet by I just can’t bring myself to waste my internet service on listening!!

Having said all that….I think the Dems and the liberals give TOO much credit to Limbaugh and his effect on the Republicans. If he DID have the power would McCain have gotten the nod to run for president??? I think not!
