    I don't see this particular incident as being an example of Rush being racist, but after doing some research since this thread was created there is definitely a history of racism on his part.

    So how do you know if he's a racist or not if you've never listened to him on a regular basis?

    I don't think he's racist, but he is an extreme moron. I do not like the guy.

    Unfortunately he's the public face of the Republican Party and that has to change. There isn't a single active person in that party right now who has more influence then Rush does. I pray to God that changes soon because it's awful watching him undermine them.

    He actually was on TV a long time ago and it failed. When he's unable to cut you off and has to listen to your point and invites knowlegable adversaries to speak, a whole lot of what he says gets broken down and exposed for what it is... pointless, meaningless hot air that's spewed in order to incite his followers.

    What the hell are you talking about? Is that some kind of reference to Obama?

    In case you've missed my politics for the last nine years, I'm an independant. Green Party, if you want to know for certain. And quite frankly, I think Obama is way too underqualified for the position that he holds, and the only thing keeping him afloat is his charisma. That being said, I'm not some kind of right-wing nutjob either who refuses to see the facts about anyone, liberal, conservative, or independant!

    In my opinion, based on what I've seen of Limbaugh, he is a racist. Much like a lot of people in his generation, it's not nessicarilly an actively hateful kind of racism, but it is still racism.

    If you remember his comments about Donovan McNabb during Monday Night Football...he certainly doesnt do much to help the public opinion that he is racist.

    What he said about Donovan wasn't racist though, it was the truth. He got railed for saying what no other commentator would ever dare to say. I still think it's funny that he got fired for the very same reason he was hired, for the controversy that comes along with him. It's not like they added him to the broadcast team for his deep insight on Man to Man coverage.

    They knew what they were getting with Limbaugh but that is another discussion. If you dont want to cause a stir and be called a racist dont bring up someone's race.

    Don't know if he's racist, who but his closest friends could say? I don't think there is any question, however, that he incites racism; covertly and overtly.

    considering one of his closest friends is Ken Hutcherson, who also married him and his wife....well we'll let the haters stammer along for excuses.

    as someone who listens from time to time to Rush while at work, with my managers full knowledge no less, 99% of what is in those links are snippets taken out of context of the overall show and conversation therein.
    It is highly hilarious to listen to his show, hearing the whole conversation, then see and hear the MSM, haters, et. al. cry scream and wail about what he may have said to offend their p.c. sensibilities. of course they never listened to the show and just parrot the snippets those with agendas take and use to paint him.

    well that's you saying it, not me. of course i can listen to many radio stations music cds, books on cd, podcasts, ect. while at work.

    but i will say, i certainly couldn't do what is needed on the job if i was watching a tv.

    maybe a security guard could or someone in a position where their attention wasn't required to do their job.

    who knows?.... oh, you do.

    Xpunge, it's called making a logical deduction based solely upon your own input.

    I am saying that people who don't work watch The View while people who should be working listen to Rush Limbaugh.

    You might want to catch up on "The View" thread dude.

    I am in no way saying that you two are the same. JC made a comment, and you made a comment. Simple stuff. No magic on my part.
