      Thursday, December 31, 2009

      … As recently as November 2009, Americans said in a poll that Limbaugh was America’s most influential conservative voice. His three-hour weekday show is heard on some 600 radio stations across the country, and more than 14 million people listen to him at least once a week.

      While I disagree with this man in so many ways, I can’t say that I wish ill upon someone. At a time like this I can only show compassion and wish him the best. He and his family will be in my thoughts.

      Hope Rush is OK. Wonder if Obama left his golf game to check up on him…or if he’s monitoring the situation? :>)

      Get well soon Rush.

      I don’t wish anything bad for him……but Karma’s a bitch!

      Rush’s hospital stay has nothing to do with karma. How on earth would he “deserve” this? What has Rush ever done but speak the truth as he believes it?

      We wish Rush well.

      #5 Yeah it sure is…The liberals will be getting theirs to.

      Rush has been doing the investigative
      work that the lap-dog press should be
      doing. He enunciates the truth about
      greedy politicians and other parasites
      that the Mass Media is afraid to point

      Bless your heart, Rush!

    9. Wolf on December 31st, 2009 2:07 pm

      Maybe that’s what he gets for saying things about other people…that’s all.
      I’m not saying he deserved anything…Just maybe he “exaggerating the effects” of drinking too much..or taking too many meds.
      Who knows…..who cares…

      Godspeed, Rush!

      Yes … America’s Commander and Chief was slow to respond to a terrorist act that came thisclose to claiming almost 300 lives. Islam must be appeased. A balancing act must be performed.

      I was searching for an official update on Rush’s conditions today. From a selfish perspective … I pray that Rush emerges from this health setback stronger than ever. America needs his voice of reason … common sense … logic …

      What is that I hear? Could it be the sounds of “high fives” coming from ObamaLand?

      isn’t Limbaugh just another shockjock looking to score ratings?
