    Maher said what? Wrote: I have a question for the debate moderators...Pres. Obama, you called GW Bush quote 'un-patriotic' for spending 4 trillion $$$ in 8 years....And so Mr. President, you spent 5 trillion $$$ in 4 years....So Mr. President, by YOUR own definition of WHAT un patriotic IS....Are YOU un-patriotic?


    It was what the money was spent on that was the issue. Most of the rise we have seen is due to an increase in aid to poor people. Which will be wiped out if Romney gets in.

    I doubt that Lush Limbaugh has very much credibility among "liberal" circles. He was born in Cape Girardeau, MO where his father was a lawyer, and owned part of the radio station, & the airport. Talk about big fish in a small pond. Limbaugh's father obviously had power and influence there. So when the VietNam War came along, & Lush Limbaugh had flunked out of college (thus negating his diploma) -- he also negated his Deferment (to avoid going to war). He got a family doctor to claim he was 4-F, so he had no need to join the Army or end up in Viet Nam. What physical attribute won him a deferment?  He had a pilonidal cyst on his butt.

    Later on, Lush Limbaugh added other attributes to his stellar chart of achievement. He was a Drop-Out, (Flunk out) and a Doper, and a Draft Dodger, and a Disc Jockey for the GOP. He got paid Millions$$ for that radio job, since all his time was spent being a Mouthpiece for the GOP, while slandering Democrats. It was very biased, & very unfair, all the things he said & did on that radio show. His attitude was lewd and rude, and deceitful, -- the mark of SUCCESS for the GOP.

    Limbaugh has been steadily spouting lies & spewing falsehoods on American airwaves since 1985. That now makes about 27 years.  He makes over $4 million per year, just for 24/7 lying and spreading false rumors, or making up false agendas. No matter what craziness he spreads, or the type of slander used against someone like Sandra Fluke, nobody can get him removed from the broadcasting business. That is the kind of POWER given him by the GOP, who finance everything he does. He is their chief ally in the Propaganda business, to brainwash the people to Vote Republican. He was even made an "honorary member of Congress" a few years ago. That shows you all the morals of the GOP when they would honor this bag of wind like he was the Prince of Perfection. I guess in Democrat circles, he would be the Prince of Putrification. 

    But then we should have pity upon him. It would never be easy to be so physically unfit, unable to do anything truly meaningful or beautiful in life, like paint a pretty picture, or design a gorgeous greeting card, or decorate a luscious living room, or make a great batch of walnut Fudge.  I truly hope he can find some type of creative endeavor to warm his soul so he won't feel trapped in his hateful lifestyle, surrounded with nothing but hypocrites and liars. He needs to find some warm Democrats to befriend him, and he will find out what it is like out in the real world. With real people who do not need excessive $$ to be happy. Maybe he can then retire, relax, use his mind for some better pursuits, other than slander & hate. I know he has a good sense of humor, & his verbal skills are legendary. What a miracle if he could use his talents for GOOD. I wonder if underneath he may want to leave his career of telling lies and trying to destroy good honest people. Some of the disciples had similar character flaws. They repented.

    Look up the bad guy Saul (in the Bible) who killed Christians & he was a real bad guy. Then he had some kind of spiritual awakening & he became a Christian, and later on Jesus made him an apostle, -- a disciple --- & NOW -- we refer to him as SAINT PAUL.  (Anything is possible with God).

    Maher said what? Wrote: No...the issue is...In 2008 Pres. Obama called GW Bush un-patriotic for spending 4 Trillion $$$ in 8 years, and Obama spent 5 Trillion in 4 years. That's just an un-flaggable fact.


    Somehow Fenway found a way back in.

    The "unpatriotic" label was accurate for Bush, but NOT for Obama. YES it is the issue of WHERE the money was spent. The Bush Admin spent most all of their money waging an unnecessary several WARS, which destroyed whole nations, their people's homes, their water & electric supply, (which is a war crime) & killed hundreds & thousands of our young men and women in uniform. When Obama spends money, it is to improve the healthcare in America, or trying to create new jobs, or fix up an aging infrastructure that is near collapse after decades of Bush rule (& neglect). President Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize & has conducted US forces with honor, but Bush had misused and abused our troops, using them for conquest of other nation's OIL reserves. Bush did not care if troops had armor in their jeeps or not, or what horrible conditions they were expected to live in overseas.

    Our soldiers were sent back time after time, into such horrible conditions that it would drive normal men crazy, and so many of our troops are coming home to empty houses, their wives in poverty, no jobs available, & vanishing opportunities to VOTE, much less achieve the American Dream. There are some statistics that tell how many of our wonderful young people who served bravely in Wars, but injured & ignored, choose Suicide instead of living in our America in its current condition.

    Gee I'm glad you guys weren't in charge during WWll. What did the Soloman Islands (Iraq) have to do with the attack on Pearl Harbor (9/11)?...Answer...Nothing, but we fought the enemy there didn't we?...This is a war on terror...And Saddam was a terrorist, we fight the enemy where they are. The war isn't over...Iran is building a nuclear weapon right now to quote "Wipe Israel off of the map"... America & Pres. Romney wont let that happen.

    How does this man stay on the air? A lot of Republican politicians find him a major embarrassment. Maybe if we just ignore him, he will go away. Seriously! If enough people look at him as the dim wit that he is and not bother responding to his rants and raves, his ratings will drop dramatically and he will be doing his show from some small town radio station with a broadcast radius of less than fifty miles. What is there about his opinions that are really worth responding to? He's no more than a right wing shock jock. Even extreme right wing Republicans are not going to bother to listen to him, if they think he is no longer effective at stirring up a stink.

    I once said I believed Rush Limbaugh's intellectual prowess was equal to that of Primordial Soup.  Now I believe I owe an apology to the Primordial Soup.
