    Okay. Yes! I admit it!

    The Sean Hannitys and Rush Limbaughs of conservative talk radio have been getting to me. Slowly. Like chinese water torture. Getting under my skin.

    Limbaugh repeatedly, daily expresses his desire for Obama to "FAIL". (Limbaugh: "I want Obama to fail!" -- Limbaugh also says FDR's "New Deal" was a failure. According to Rush, only unadulterated capitalism succeeds)

    YouTube - "I Want OBAMA to FAIL !" : RUSH LIMBAUGH | CPAC Convention 2009


    Sean Hannity has no problem calling Barack Obama the worst president in american history (even though the guy's been in office for six weeks). Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh continue to suggest that President Obama is to blame for the decline in the stock market, referring to the state of the stock market as an "Obama recession."


    Fringe conservatives are yelling in a vacuum. There is no center to the republican party. No laws of gravitation are operating. They're spinning & in a state of free-fall.


    Despite this. A new poll today.

    --------------------

    Poll: Obama's rating at all-time high


    NBC News
    March 3, 2009


    WASHINGTON - After Barack Obama's first six weeks as president, the American public's attitudes about the two political parties couldn't be more different, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds.
    Despite the country's struggling economy and vocal opposition to some of his policies, President Obama's favoribility rating is at an all-time high. Two-thirds feel hopeful about his leadership and six in 10 approve of the job he's doing in the White House. "What is amazing here is how much political capital Obama has spent in the first six weeks," said Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. "And against that, he stands at the end of this six weeks with as much or more capital in the bank."

    By comparison, the Republican Party - which resisted Obama's recently passed stimulus plan and has criticized the spending in his budget - finds its favoriblity at an all-time low. It also receives most of the blame for the current partisanship in Washington and trails the Democrats by nearly 30 percentage points on the question of which party could best lead the nation out of recession.

    In some twisted way, I hope that the extreme conservative base continues to talk in this negative way. It'll only put more nails in the coffin of their already twisted beliefs in regards to this country. And perhaps, a sensible Republican may emerge from the rubble to actually spark some REAL conversation. Otherwise, let them dig their own hateful graves.

    Oh, if Rush Limbaugh's opinion counted more. Then, why wasn't his fat-arsed self running for President? John McCain didn't EVEN pick Limbaugh as Vice-President. :rolleyes:

    Just put Limbaugh in a cheerleader's outfit and call him what he really is...a cheerleader. A GOP hypeman.

    really, it's been bad for a couple of months, but in the past week it's become all too obvious how dire the collapse of the u.s. (and beyond) banking systems really is, and what it will mean.

    it's not a joke anymore, this is the real thing and we're all living through it.

    obama's right, the partisianship in congress has to stop for the sake of the future
    survival of the u.s. government and even the survival of capitalism as we know it. though
    all of this seems to change on a day to day basis. OBAMA'S NOT A SOCIALIST. will citibank and bank of america be "nationalized", even partially or temporarily? it now seems likely. but under the free market, their very survival seems unlikely.

    i'm impressed that most americans "get it". maybe it's just a gut feeling for them.
    but we've got a good man there during these bad times, and that is something i am truly thankful for.

    My head spins every time I flick on the evening news.

    Hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer bailout money are flying out the window to companies "too big to fail" -- Citigroup gets $50 billion, Bank of America gets $45 billion, etc. - yet these same companies are still failing and coming back for seconds.

    AIG's (American International Group's) newly overhauled rescue package is $162.5 billion, according to government officials. Divide that by 111,609,629 -- the total number of U.S. households, according to the U.S. Census' 2005-2007 American Community Survey -- and the pricetag to bail these guys out is over $1,400 per taxpayer family.

    AIG reported a record-breaking $61 billion quarterly loss today.

    General Motors posted a quarterly loss of $9.6 billion Thursday, Feb. 26.


    I don't know the answer. But this mad governmental lending... spending... partial nationalization, whatever you want to call it, is getting pretty scary.

    Ok. Do you even know, or are you even interested in, the context of that quote? I saw the initial interview where Rush said that and what he said was if Obama wants to turn this nation into a socialist one, then i hope he fails. But if he see's America like reagan did, the he hopes he succeeds. for the last 8 years liberals did everything they could to see that Bush failed in bringing forth his agenda. This is no different.

    Democrats did nothing to make Bush fail. Bush did that on his own.

    The republicans controlled the white house, the senate and the house for 6 of the 8 yrs bush was in office. then they got their ass handed to them in a landslide midterm election by the american public that finally saw the light. Yet he did nothing to advance the right wing agenda. republicans should be livid over the missed opportunities but instead they just mount opposition for the democrats. Bush has failed at every job he's ever had and POTUS was no different. He couldn't even get one of the SCOTUS appointments right the first time. the man's a fool. good thing he's got daddy's oil money to live on.

    (btw the "awareness test" has little to do with the sponsor of the ad and has more to do with "shell game" scenarios.)

    the major fucking banks, the bastions of american capitalism, are ASKING TO BE NATIONALIZED NOW.
    because their stock isn't worth the paper it's printed on
    is that subtle enough for you and your man limbaugh?


    and the crap about a salary cap being a "brain drain" to the bank execs?
    it was their "geniuses" that got us into this mess well before obama set foot in the white house. "brain drain"? crap upon crap.

    stanford chartering a jet to antigua in the middle of the night to flee the country.
    3,000 abandoned cars, and still counting (many lexuses and mercedes) at the dubai airport. (like post-katrina, but without the hurricane.) where are they going?
    madoff thinking he's entitled to his manhattan condo and tens of millions in money he says is "unrelated" to the billions that was stolen
    from investors.

    do you think the shit has hit the fan yet? or are you waiting for the divine word from limbaugh before you can decide?


    oh, and steele being a poodle to limbaugh? a big show of strength there in the republican party, when a drug-addled fatso has-been can boss around the chairman of the RNC and come out on top.

    Oh my.

    I'm sure Rush would be really enthused to know that you just said he's no different from Bush-era Liberals. :biggrin1:

    what up with that!?!?

    falls right into the lib dems' hands:


    "Chairman Steele's reversal this evening and his apology to Limbaugh proves the unfortunate point that Limbaugh is the leading force behind the Republican Party, its politics and its obstruction of President Obama's agenda in Washington," Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said Monday evening.


    Over the past several days, the White House and its Democratic allies have launched a concerted effort to draw attention to Limbaugh in a belief that his support exists only among the most die-hard conservatives.
