Rush Limbaugh leaving the country-NOT!

Our favorite neo-con, Rush Limbaugh says he's leaving the country-not!  I'm sure that got the attention of millions of Americans-and then some. ( Just last year, he threatened to leave New York if he had to pay more taxes. ) Why doesn't he ever act on his so-called threats?   

This story seems to have taken a life of its own and morphed into something that has been taken so out of context.  Not that I’m a fan of Limbaugh but it started off as him saying if health care reform is passed-he’s leaving the country.  The correct version of that is he said if the health care reform bill is passed in this country,  he would go to Costa Rica for medical care and still reside here.  Costa Rica is a country that offers universal healthcare.  We will see if he’s a man of his word or just expressing his distain for Obama’s policies.  The GOP has told to start over on the health care reform bill because it would be a drain on our country’s already ailing economy.  Is there really any easy way to do this?  It’s clearly not a bipartisan effort and if we think there is already animosity between the two political parties-it will only become worse.  It’s apparent that since the health care reform bill was in its early stages, it has been a thorn in the side of the conservatives.  It’s a hotbed topic for discussion and debate. 

The story with Rush Limbaugh being quoted saying that he will go to Costa Rica for medical care reminds me of the Michael Moore film, “Sicko” and the whole thing with Cuba’s health care system.  How far would someone go to get universal healthcare in this country?  This whole situation reminds me of watching a dog chase his tail, it’s going nowhere fast.

Quick Tip by . November 11, 2012
Rush Limbaugh is nothing more than an oxycodone-guzzling windbag with a radio slot and uses it just to annoy and offend people.  Now I'm not one of these guys pushing for political correctness in entertainment (I despise PC enterertainment a lot), but the fact that Rush isn't the least bit entertaining is what turns a potentially amusing conservative media personality into an annoying, sanctimonious windbag stirring up the pot.      If I want to listen …

I don't always agree but Rush Limbaugh is a master at his craft.
In 1988 a brash, highly opinionated and exceptionally talented broadcaster burst onto the national scene and changed the face of radio in America.  For over a decade AM radio had been struggling mightily to find its niche and most of these stations were having great difficulty just  turning a profit.  Rush Limbaugh would change all of that.  In fact, Rush has been credited by many with saving AM radio.      I recall the first …

A convicted drug addict and probable sex tourist who heads the Republican party? God, what a loser.

The Republican's biggest cheerleader for ANYTHING they do. Republicans could call for executing the illeagals in mass graves and he'd be for it if they said it. At least he has a nice voice for the radio.

A greedy, insensitive, hypocritical, egocentric ignoramus. Anyone who makes fun of people with diseases or disablities is a real jerk...

About this topic

Wiki

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III, born January 12, 1951, is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. Limbaugh is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, a nationally-syndicated talk-radio show that airs throughout the United States on Premiere Radio Networks.

Limbaugh has been credited with reviving AM radio in the United States, and was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993. The National Review magazine, in a 1993 cover story, called him "The Leader of the Opposition" during the Clinton administration. He is a bestselling author, with two titles on the New York Times Best Seller list in the 1990s.

Limbaugh's radio show airs weekdays for three hours daily, beginning at 12 noon Eastern time in the U.S. It also is carried worldwide over the Armed Forces Radio Network, and in some markets is carried on FM stations.

Radio broadcasting shifted from AM to FM in the late '70s because of the opportunity to broadcast music in stereo in FM, with better range and musical fidelity. Limbaugh's show was first nationally syndicated in August 1988, in a later stage of AM's decline. Limbaugh's popularity paved the way for other conservative talk radio programming to become commonplace on the AM radio. As of 2006[update], Arbitron ratings indicated that The Rush Limbaugh Show had a minimum weekly audience of 13.5 million listeners, making it the largest radio talk show audience in the United States. In March 2006, WBAL in Baltimore, MD became the first radio ...
