Question O-thority

I find the pants-wetting about Rush Limbaugh's defiance of The One be amusing and contemptible:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched an online petition for readers to express their outrage at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh for saying last week that he wanted President Barack Obama to fail. The petition includes a 19-second sound byte of Limbaugh, saying, “If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to this guy, say ‘okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.’”

On Tuesday, in a note at the top of his Web site , Limbaugh responded to the Democrats' petition: "I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP? "

Last Friday, Obama advised Republicans to stop listening to Limbaugh if they wanted to get along with Democrats and the administration.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” Obama said to Republican leaders who met with the president to talk about the stimulus package. On his radio program, Limbaugh noted that just as he wants Obama to fail, Obama wants Limbaugh to fail.

DCCC Executive Director Brian Wolff, blogging on the DCCC Web site, said Limbaugh has given Democrats "a preview of the outrageous Republican attacks that are on the way against President Obama and every Democrat working for change."

I've never been much of a Dittohead, occupying as I do a position in the Tory wing of the conservative movement, but I'm glad to see him nailing his flag to the mast. The question I have for Mr. Wolff and his ilk is why they don't embrace El Rushbo for speaking troof to power. I mean, isn't that a good in and of itself? Or does it depend on whose power we're talking about?

Hmm, I figured this was a great opportunity to tell Rush what I think of him and voice my support for his freedom to think and speak freely. I thanked him for doing so. I wonder if my comments will make it to Rush or be weeded out? I also took time to voice my support for the republican law makers who are trying to vote down the shameful SCHIP scheme, on another petition. Wonder if that'll make it past the demo censors?

I find it laughable that the Dems think the GOP will simply roll over and go along with O-man's agenda. They don't get the irony in their attempts to delegitimize Rush.

Rush has the right to wish for Obama's failure, just as much as O has the right to wish for the opposite. That's America, Mr. President.

Rush reflects the thoughts of most conservatives. Little wonder the GOP wets its pants at the thought of standing up for him and soiling their credentials with the MSM.

As for president 666 and his politburo members let them do their best. Most thinking people can tell the difference between an Obama truth and a Limbaugh truth.
