The problem lies in the failure of the tax cut/trickle-down/deregulation policies that gave us tech and housing bubbles and is about to deliver a student loan bubble to further weaken an already lousy economy trying to recover from the worst meltdown in three generations.

My viewpoint is that our current situation isn't the result of too many lazy folks wanting to live on handouts. To me it's clear that there are far too few decent jobs available for millions who are willing to work.

So what? If he were poor, you'd say he was jealous. Since he's not, cons call him a hypocrite.

Why do you cons try to cover you azzes with such silliness? What are you ashamed of?

Because conservatives are so incredibly stupid, hypocritical, greedy and vile, the jokes just write themselves.

Someone who moves their mouth complaining about others moving their mouth, about others not earning the money they earn, is indeed a hypocrite..

Rush gets plenty of "buzz" and it is not the fault of liberals that it is mostly negative. Rather ironic that you are presenting poor Rush as a victim of the media. Also their demographics are massively different.
