    @SP

    Benghazi has been covered by every single netwrok. The only difference is that Fox News continues to cover it on a daily basis as if it’s still news.

    It’s no longer news…it’s time to move on to actual news like the story of a 5yr old boy who shot his 2yr old sister with a rifle that was given to him as a gift.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I want a conservative President’s feet held to the fire in circumstances like Boston and Benghazi. I am enraged by the cover up for a far left wing President, they are in a word corrupt!

  • lbles

    “I tell you, folks, I really believe the pursuit of likability, of making everybody like you is the greatest prison you could put yourself in. You end up denying who you really are. You’re afraid to be who you really are!” – Rush

  • Chriscee

    Why are state and local taxes higher in hoggish blue states?

  • lbles

    “There will never be a greater opportunity to contrast conservatism with what’s actually happened these past five years. We don’t have to warn people about what will happen if radical liberals get in office. It’s already happening!” -Rush

  • lbles

    “Imagine Bush’s head of the Civil Rights Division not prosecuting Klanners when they engage in voter intimidation, and then imagine what would happen if Bush turned around and nominated the Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. That is exactly what’s happened here with Obama nominating Tom Perez for labor secretary.” -Rush

  • lbles

    “The left’s big lie is that government frees people and that only government can liberate people, when really it’s just the opposite.” -Rush

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Isbles

    Rush hit the nail right on the head. We, as Americans, should be enraged by the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective medias lies, omissions and distortions.

  • lbles

    “Do you know how I know there’s no science of global warming, folks? Because they tell us a ‘consensus of scientists’ agrees with X. There is no consensus in science. See, I am the mayor of Realville, and science is not up to a vote. It either is or isn’t.” -Rush

  • Chriscee

    Obama care is going to go down in a big fiery blaze. Its broke and not even fully implemented.

    Harry do nothing Reid is crying in his stale beer

  • lbles

    “You’re worried about being lied about? You ought to try being a Republican for one day, Mr. President, and see how it feels! You ought to try being a conservative. You want to worry about being lied about? You ever lie about Obamacare?” -Rush

  • lbles

    “The Gosnell trial hasn’t received much coverage until now. The reason it hasn’t is the narrative in ab0rti0n. There’s only one story in ab0rti0n the left covers. There’s only one story in ab0rti0n they care about. That narrative is ‘the erosion of reproductive rights.’” -Rush

  • Doug Z

    Did Obama do that?

    April was the deadly month in Iraq since June if 2008.As it is falling apart in Iraq

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Mark 2

    Doug Z is right, you sound like Dick Nixon talking about Wartergate. The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media hammered Nixon into submission. No body died in Watergate!

  • lbles

    “You don’t have to go to Pakistan or Afghanistan or Iraq to be radicalized against America . To me, you can be radicalized against America right here in America . You can be radicalized against America in American schools. You can be radicalized in America against America by watching American television and movies and websites. You can be radicalized by professors, many of them former bombers themselves, many of them with grievances against this country. You don’t need to go outside this country to be radicalized against it.” – Rush

  • lbles

    “The purpose of mainstream media today, is to make sure that whoever’s watching is convinced that whatever conservatives think about something isn’t true.” – Rush

  • lbles

    “The welfare program worked as one would hope because it helped the alleged terrorists get on their feet and feel deep gratitude to American taxpayers. Wait, nope, sorry, didn’t do that.” – Rush

  • lbles

    ”By the way, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the dead terrorist, has a nickname now. Some people online are referring to him as ‘Speed Bump.’ Just passing on what’s out there. I’m making no judgments about it, just passing on what’s out there.” – Rush

  • lbles

    “I used to have a phrase: Liberalism is spreading misery equally. And now the ruling class throughout Washington seems to have adopted this.” -Rush

  • lbles

    “Liberalism scrambles the brain more than football, as far as I’m concerned. I mean, if you’re worried about the brain, if you’re worried about what’s happening to people’s ability to function, ban liberalism, not football.” -Rush
