Rush talked about this Friday and gave kudos to the MSM for standing together on principle with Fox News as the White House tries to bar Fox News from intervewing it's pay Czar:
"Pay Czar Cuts CEO Salaries 90% and Obama Didn't Know About It? Forget class envy. Yes, these firms made a deal with the devil, but where does this stop? If you take a student loan, can they tell you what to major in?" Rush
The tactic of bashing Rush Limbaugh and conservative talk show hosts to score political points is apparently no longer the exclusive realm of national-level Democrats and moderate Republicans. Now, even local politicians are adopting this political maneuver in their local campaigns.
Upside down thinking democrat David Englin, member of the Virginia House of Delegates for the 45th District (and currently my own delegate), sent out a direct mail piece which I received on Thursday where Englin boldly proclaimed his opposition to the top conservative talk show host:“If Rush Limbaugh is for it, I’m probably against it.” “You and I know that our community’s progressive values are once again under attack. Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and their right-wing allies want to block progress on issues that matter. But we can’t let them. We have come too far and there is too much at stake to let the rhetoric of hate stop what we know is right.”
After listing his policy accomplishments for the past four years, including being “for marriage equality [and] reproductive rights” [elsewhere in his mailer, Englin touted his “100% pro-choice” rating and his endorsement by NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia] and promoting “new green jobs that help reverse climate change,” the Democrat returned to bashing Limbaugh: “I won’t back down and I won’t bow down to the voices of hate trying to block our progress. Join me. Let’s send a message to Rush- we don’t care what you say. We know you’re wrong and you will not stop our progress.” http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2009/10/23/virginia-state-delegate-if-rush-limbaugh-it-probably-against-it
David, millions disagree with you. we not only care what Rush says, we agree with him. Not everything little thing mind you, but most things. You Sir are wrong! We (conservative America) are having an impact on your socialistic progress. Rush is right, your success, especially where nationalised healthcare is concerned, is America's doom! Your successs will also mark the end of your political term. This is undeniable, a point to which even moderate Democrats will conceed.
