OE, why don't you send Rush a list of words and phrases that he could use instead of being himself so that he would be acceptable to you? I'm sure he would take that in the spirit it was intended.
Walter you're still doing 'sound biting' that I am criticizing here. You can't be honest and hold up one statement out of a lengthy discourse and use it as proof that the person is 'evil' or 'hateful' or anything else when that same statement in context obviously means something different than it does by itself. The pertinent part of that transcript you linked is the same thing as the clip I posted early in this thread.
OE, why don't you send Rush a list of words and phrases that he could use instead of being himself so that he would be acceptable to you? I'm sure he would take that in the spirit it was intended. Sure Rush says a lot of things that I dislike because I think that a) he is wrong or b) he has crossed the line into bad taste. But I express myself in ways that many (most?) of you think is terrible too.
So, I try to give others the right to express themselves in their own style and words rather than try to fit everybody into the same pigeon hole of what is and is not acceptable or how I would say it. But then I resist political correctness every chance I get too.
Well I would and do have problems with that if that was somebody's only intent. In this context however, Rush was neither outrageous nor did he say that he wanted the President to fail in the way some of you keep trying to make it appear that he did.
