Democrats Launch Petition Against Rush Limbaugh Tuesday, January 27, 2009 By Melanie Hunter-Omar
(CNSNews.com) 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, Id be happy the Republicans have laid down. I dont want this to work. So Im thinking of replying to this guy, say okay, Ill send you a response, but I dont need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.
Meanwhile, Obama advised Republicans last Friday to stop listening to Limbaugh if they wanted to get along with Democrats and the administration.
You cant 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.
The Republican National Committee did not return calls requesting comment.
If they want to waste their money let ‘em.
Socialism, hatred and Censorship....you can’t separate them!
What a bunch of limp-wristed, pansy-assed crybabies.
I don't understand...
What about listening to the radio makes in impossible to bend over????
Rush is probably ORGASMIC at the news that once again the democratic party is airing publicly its fear of the voice of one private citizen.
eBay, be ready for another record-breaker.
Jeezy peezy what nitwits...
All of these extracuricular activities are taking them away from the work of the country...
Oooooooo, another “letter”. Woohooo!!!
Well, we must launch not a petition but an INVESTIGATION into the fraud and criminal acts of those in Congress, followed by indictments, prosecution and when found guilty, imprisonment.
Write your Congresscritter.
Oh please continue. Make sure there’s a nasty and threatening letter to Rush, too! Think of all the money he can raise for charity again!
Gee, even the Canadians got it wrong. What Rush actually said was ‘I support my President but I want his policies to fail’ (paraphrased). He said it in the same spirit as those on the Left who say ‘I support the troops but I don’t support the war (or their mission).
hmmm, I can’t wait for the ACLU to get all over this!!!!!!....crickets chirp
These people are simply herd mentality.
Part of the attempt to generate support for the Censorship, er, Fairness Doctrine.
“Phony soldiers” part 2?
That is the most damning and depressing piece of data in the article.
The RNC should have issued a press release supporting Rush and the sentiment he expressed. Vichy cowards.
Time to FReep.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is one thing and one thing only: the Bag of Bile Chuck Schumer. Let them try to get him off the air - and any attempt will ultimately make them look like the Censors they are.
Schumer is a menace and must be removed form the Senate. We should start a petition to remove him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If Rush REALLY wanted 0bama to fail, he would have gotten behind a REAL conservative in the GOP primaries of 2008 instead of pontificating while refusing to take a stand.
His so-called ‘Operation Chaos’ did nothing to help conservatives. If he’s not part of the solution, he’s part of the problem.
