The rationalization to keep believing the hate this guy spews is simply astounding.

I can't fault him for making money raking in the gullible to repeat, then defend, his hateful rhetoric.
Did you read the transcripts?

Or was the spittle covering the screen?

The only "hate" I see being spewed is from the left each and every day as evidenced by the hate speech towards Limbaugh in this very thread by those compassionate liars misrepresenting the least little things. Cherry picking in order to try and elevate their argument. Epic fail as usual.

So true. I just posted the same on another thread. These people are one trick ponies. Take away their ability to insight and inflame and you take away their bread and butter.

Morning Joe had an interesting discussion today. They were talking about hate speech, and that the reason it's so common on cable networks is because it sells. People get riled up and they listen. They thought it was very notable that Roger Ailes has ordered the FOX staff to shut up, tone it down, and make their arguments from now on with intellectual points vs. insults and finger pointing. The thought was that Ailes is one of the most shrewd players in media today, and he's always two steps ahead of everyone else. He makes money that way. If he's telling people to tone it down, it may well be that we've hit a threshold with this garbage, and people don't want to hear it anymore. Ailes is just doing what's good for business.

Rush may be out of a job soon, because I don't think he can adapt. He rose to where he is today when the national conversation turned nasty, and he's capitalized on it. It's his entire brand. We'll see what happens...

Included is the audio from his program, in his own voice. Apparently blame is only on the shooters madness (and not politics) till he can write a show blaming liberals.

Keep it classy Rush. It is not either wing that's the problem with vile rhetoric, it's only hate mongers like Rush.

Show one shred of proof that this shooting was due to political rhetoric........There is none!

A mentally insane person who was not treated,end of story.

The lie? You mean like Rush stating " This program does nothing but try to inspire people to be the best they can be. . "

Please do explain just how hoping Obama fails is nothing but an attempt to inspire peoiple to "be the best they can be" ?

I see nothing in the transcript but the blowhard patting himself on the back and promoting his own very lucrative agenda.

He may be entertaining to some but he's a poor actor, his whiney little portrayal of a victim is poorly done and not remotely close to believable.

Cannot deny, Obama did not fuel some of the fire within Arizona, yes he did, does it have anything to do with a whaco, maybe just as much as people saying Palin was responsible. Neither had a thing to do with this, he is one crazed individual hell bent on taking some innocent lives, while he now sit in jail. Obama himself was so hard on Arizona, how quickly one forgets.
