When W. was President, we heard how terrible he was from EVERYONE. All of the Democrats out there, the major news networks (CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc.), and from every celebrity in Hollywood. For 8 long years I listened to people talk about how we had a retarded President and that Republicans must all be retarded for electing him.
Fast forward to today. Democrats, YOU WON EVERYTHING! You have the house, the Senate, the Presidency, and most of the state legislatures as well. And you know what, that’s fine, because in America, we get what the majority want, even if it’s foolish.
But all I have heard for the past 2 months is how awful Rush Limbaugh needs to be shut down. He’s biased, unfair, and mean, and there’s no place for that now that the chosen one is President.
SHUT UP already. Rush Limbaugh, among other things, is hilarious, entertaining, and incredibly well read. He knows a lot more about politics than YOU, the lowly Democrat reader. If he chooses to be inflammatory and rile people up, it’s because it’s good for ratings, and last time I checked, talk radio is a business. It’s there to make money.
He is speaking to the conservative base (not even necessarily Republicans in general). If you are a conservative, then you agree with most of what he says. You don’t listen to him to get brainwashed (as liberals always claim) but because it’s nice to know there’s someone public who actually shares most of you values.
The Fairness Doctrine is back on the table, because the liberals want it. They want to put Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and other conservatives OUT OF BUSINESS. No fairness is required on MSNBC. Where was the Fairness Doctrine during the 8 years of W?
I can’t understand how a group who won EVERY SINGLE THING they could possibly win are such tiny people that they can’t even stand ONE dissenting voice out there for the other 46% of us who DIDN’T vote for Obama.
Fairness. What a joke.
