Democretins Rush to Failure

We have a winner in the Democrat Party's jejune contest to find a caption denouncing El Rushbo for display on a billboard in his hometown:


Maybe these idiots should paste "Paid for by the Democrat Party" across the top so that passersby don't think it's an ad for Rush's excellent show.

Hat tip: Power Line, on a tip from Gregory of Yardale.

Nope, they voted for the slow, agonizing path to failure.

"Maybe these idiots should paste "Paid for by the Democrat Party" across the top so that passersby don't think it's an ad for Rush's excellent show."

Damn strait VH. I'll bet 1 in 2 people will mistake it for that.

Actually this could be interpreted as anti-Obama since "America" voted for Hope and Change, not the current rush to failure of the Obama administration "Rushing getting Turbo Tax Geithner into Treasury Dept", "Rushing the Stimupork spending bill", "rushing to get the Omnibus bill passed", 'rush, rush, rushing towards failure by creating a $1.75 TRILLION deficit in one year (the total of Bush's first 4 years) and now Pelosi is getting ready to add to that by rushing to get ANOTHER stimupork bill ready!

The demacreep party of dirty demacreeps they all deserve to be sent to the spice mines of kessel or the penal planet of ELBA II or maybe THE DEVILS ASTEROID for life

Kessel, Elba II? No - send them to the dilithium mines on Remus. Total darkness. Then again they might enjoy it.

This is great!

Liberlism always generates the exact opposite of its general intent.

This billboard case in point. They just gave Rush free adverising for his show.

Keep up the great work DNC!

That is hilarious, it looks exactly like an ad for Rush!! On their dime!

FranklinsLocke sez:
"Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its general intent."
How true! And, they're too tunnel-visioned to see what we see on this billboard.

Posted by: Karin at March 13, 2009 8:06 AM

But with Obama elected as President, that's what we got anyway.

Posted by: J at March 13, 2009 8:12 AM

"Americans didn't vote for a RUSH to failure".

Some Americans did when they voted for Obama and a liberal majority (as did a number of clones and dead people, courtesy of ACORN).

But this billboard is awesome! The DNC has inadvertantly conceded Rushs' point by paraphrasing his basic argument.

That being said, is this the best they can throw at Rush (other than the hidden stiletto of the revised "Fairness Doctrine" buried in the Stimulus Bill)?

Rush should use this billboards message to promote his show.

I'd like to see some of the "runners up" I bet theyre just a scream. This is the best??!!
Now the one says maybe things arent as bad as they seem,,,, YA THINK!!!

Posted by: czuch at March 13, 2009 8:17 AM

I wonder how long it will be before they pull the thing down realizing it really means the opposite of what they meant it to be?

Posted by: Anonymous at March 13, 2009 8:36 AM

I'd like to see the runners up too. Gotta wonder if the "winner" will actually wear the T-shirt with Rush's face 'n all.

Posted by: Kathleen at March 13, 2009 8:39 AM

Big time fail. It looks more like a promotion for Rush Limbaugh than anything, and that's exactly what the libs do anytime they go after him. I think I read somewhere his audience has grown another 2 or 3 million listeners from all this debacle.

Posted by: Atomic Lib Smasher at March 13, 2009 8:41 AM

We have WON, the left is pulling out the stops to discredit a single conservative. Which just raised his shows rating!!!

The left needs to keep spending there money on Limbaugh promotion!!

Posted by: Unicorn Fart at March 13, 2009 8:41 AM

Gotta love Rush Limbaugh.

When you are at the top, the bottom feeders
will always try to pull you down.

Keep up the good work, Rush!

%$@# those libs!

Sillt waiting for the Obamessiah to accept/decline Rush's invitation to debate him donchyaknow!

Posted by: Nathaniel M at March 13, 2009 11:21 AM

Is this the real contest winner? If so I say we just be as quite as we possibly can so they go through with it. It is perfect. Ha ha ha ha!

Posted by: Anonymous at March 13, 2009 11:28 AM

Gah! I have the dumb today: "just remain as quiet as we possibly can"

Posted by: Anonymous at March 13, 2009 11:32 AM

These "contests" to come up with something "clever" from Libs always come up with the lamest things. At DemoUndgrd they were contesting to come up with a nickname for Bobby Jindal. They came up with "coon-ass."

I wonder if the Rush billboard winner was a mole.

Posted by: Karin at March 13, 2009 11:34 AM

Its really odd how the Obamatrons are attacking someone who doesnt even have a vote in Congress or any power in the Capitol. At least when they attacked Newt Gingrich (derided as GinGRINCH) back in the mid 90s it made sense politically as he had power in the halls of Congress.

Posted by: Anonymous at March 13, 2009 11:38 AM

Could you explain how President Obama has failed when just 53 days have passed? In large opinion,he has done more in under 2 months than Bush did in eight years. Researching a number of right-wing tool sites, it is clear you guys are in the running for the "whine" award.The economy was bad long before last Nov.4th, and it is not going change overnight.Carrying the mantra of "No!", no matter what no way to go through life son. That said, I will offer applause for covering the Veterans Benefits story. It is a wrongminded idea to even consider. However, the Rush billboard, while it could of been better is clearly pointing out THAT WE ARE CLEANING UP AFTER REPUBLICANS...AGAIN!

LOL@Al Pennam

You mean exponentially ramp up our gubment debt more than Bush ever could conceive? Yup you betchya!

it is clear you guys are in the running for the "whine" award.

How quickly we forget the "stolen" 2000 & 2004 elections huh?


Please excuse my blogger's tourettes outburst but prolonged exposure to moonbats will do that to ya.

Posted by: Nathaniel M at March 13, 2009 12:07 PM

"Kyle at March 13, 2009 11:54 AM"

Please tell us just WHAT Obama and the PUPPETEERS pulling his strings have done so far that was worth a damn. So far, Obama has offered NOTHING to alieviate the problem; it was the Donkeys who control him that have been throwing money around in a way that have the people we owe money to CRAPPING IN THIER PANTS!

Posted by: KHarn at March 13, 2009 12:31 PM

"However, the Rush billboard, while it could of been better is clearly pointing out THAT WE ARE CLEANING UP AFTER REPUBLICANS...AGAIN!"


Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac?

I'm assuming you wanted Bush to fail, well he did.

He failed in his attempt to enact regulations on the latter mentioned financial institutions in no small part due to the stonewalling of the former mentioned idiots (among others) who are surprise...DEMOCRATS.

"Could you explain how President Obama has failed when just 53 days have passed?"

He has this incredible difficulty of nominating for and filling his cabinet with people who have actually paid their taxes. Other than this I can't think of anything else he has done other than attack a broadcaster (Rush)who openly and stridently disagrees with him.

He has failed incredibly with foreign relations in regard to Great Britain. This would normally make me laugh when remembering how liberals believed the world loves us again because we elected Obama but his arrogance and incompitence is enough to smother any levity in the matter.

Posted by: ChicagoBlood at March 13, 2009 2:16 PM

Nice Slanitty talking points here.The deregulations that affected the housing market began in 1998-99, under Republican rule.Don't get me wrong,there is plenty of blame to go around.As far as the "whine" comment, let me clarify. A daily rant about Democracts,using Fox and Conservative pundit talking points is not a plan.As far as 2000 and 2004 elections, yes it is conceivable those of on the left "whined", however, it is well documented that the irregularities in both Ohio and Florida favored the GOP and the people involved are still being investigated, and/or jailed. As a staunch Bush/Cheney opponent, I never once wished for them to fail, as that would be wishing the country ill. Conservatives and Republicans are now scrambling to oppose anything the Progressive movement puts forth no matter how good or ill advised. If you wish to gain relevence, I suggest you tear a page out of our playbook, and organize or at the very least pay attention to Meghan McCain is saying. And to suggest the WH picked the fight with Rush is adolescent at best.It is on record that James Carville and Paul Begala picked that fight, and so far are winning. I find it humorous how you guys wish to re-write history, and suggest that this began in December.Use your head! If you wish to, I suggest you review the policies that President Ford fell for,the mistakes of Carter, and the wrongdoings of Ronald Reagan and Bush Sr. and Clinton before putting all of this on President Obama.Putting forth a stimulus pkg. the way Obama has is in the mold of FDR's efforts which worked, until the GOP convinced him to pull back,which prolonged the depression.

Posted by: Kyle at March 13, 2009 2:48 PM

Kyle, perhaps you're missing a point here. All those other presidents you speak off ( signs of BDS leaving 43 out of the list ) had one thing Obama does not... experience.

And, having experience, playing it from your angle, they still had problems. How much more confidence should we place in someone who has absolutely no experience and who, was in fact, a vigorous supporter of the Community Reinvestment Act and received the second highest amount of campaign contributions from the very companies prospering off this political philosophy that created this mess?

His inexperience is not helping the situation and people cannot be expected to keep their opinions to themselves as they watch this bumbling 'American Idol Winner' destroying everything they have worked for. Some people don't notice the smoke being blown up their ass because they are infatuated with his glow of symbolism. Others are a little more astute like those losing wealth.

Posted by: IOpian at March 13, 2009 4:04 PM

I am not missing the point here at all. Keeping your head in the sand and mumbling "I got mine", is not only shallow, it is un-American.In addition.Furthermore, you apparently missed where I stated "there is plenty of blame to go around". Sticking with the experience reasoning also does not help your argument. nor does "BDS".Grasping onto the idea that "Wow,our guy was so bad over the last 8 years, we better make sure we paint a picture that their's is worse" I ask you, what do expect to accomplished in 53 days? This is not infatuation with a President, this is looking around my country, and not seeing a pretty picture. You don't seem to understand the domino effect we (yes "we")are experiencing.

Posted by: Kyle at March 13, 2009 6:43 PM

Keeping your head in the sand and mumbling "I got mine", is not only shallow, it is un-American.

Expand on that please. I aint gettin' it.

Posted by: Nathaniel M at March 13, 2009 7:19 PM

So, Kyle, if there is "plenty of blame to go around," please explain what the Democrats' and Obama's share of the blame is.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at March 13, 2009 8:22 PM

I was realy consitering like JANUS VII where the HORTA lives im sure they wouldnt care for them and do something to them

Posted by: Flu-Bird at March 13, 2009 8:25 PM

So, as of today, the Obama White House (oxymoron anyone?) announced that they were done going after Rush and are off to other pastures.......

They got a stick in the eye over the Rush attack.

Posted by: Oiao at March 14, 2009 6:48 PM

I suggest you tear a page out of our playbook, and organize or at the very least pay attention to Meghan McCain is saying.

Posted by: Kyle at March 13, 2009 2:48 PM

LOL, Really??!!?!?!? You guys think Palin is a ditz, wrongfully, but were supposed to listen to the bleach blonde bimbette daughter of John McCain? Why? Because she's to shallow to understand Ann Coulter? Because she hangs out with a bunch of liberal brown shirts, and has to compensate by playing up Obama's "coolness"? What has Meghan McCain said that anyone would want to listen to seriously?

Posted by: Right0fReagan at March 15, 2009 1:25 AM

It is nice to see a bunch of right-wingers respond here with a trunk full of...well, we'll call them thoughts, to be polite. Let me respond to a few direct things. First, the right-wing mentality of "I got mine" is over. The country overwhelmingly voted against it. The Santelli's of the world are running from Jon Stewart of all people. The fact is,when your neighbors, or community has common failures, it effects all of us!That is now over.

As for "plenty of blame to go around", well I have always said that if I agreed with someone all of the time, then I am an idiot. Far too many votes in the House and Senate, from both parties helped achieve the wreckage that ALL OF US are now picking through. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden have contributed just as much as Diaper wearing David Vitter, and the likes of John Boehner among others.

Listening to reason come out of the blonde head of Meghan McCain makes the likes of Sarah Palin and Victoria Jackson appear cartoonish at best. Michael Steele says "bipartisanship is fiction", well over the years the likes of John McCain, Russ Feingold, and Kennedy have shown it is not. Whether you agree or not, Meghan is making a good move from her position. Point out what has made your party extremely ugly in many ways.Like him or not, Michael Moore never became a venom for Democrats like Coulter, Savage and Limbaugh have for you guys. Ron Reagan Jr. has made a great radio show and has proved to be a positive tool in the political arena, as has Thom Hartmann, and Richard Greene. You have good voices that would work in a positive direction, however the old right muzzles them. Hence, you have become a party of old, white, religious, bat-shit crazy Republicans. I find this site well researched, no matter how off to right it is, but I can see you are not dumb, I do suggest you put a little more effort into helping our communities through a "collective" mess we are all in.

Posted by: Kyle at March 15, 2009 11:35 AM

Kyle used the word 'collective' - how so appropriate from his point of political view.

Earth to Kyle - Obama did not win with anything close to a mandate of the popular vote. Can you show us some credible stastics that show a 'mandate'?

As it stands now, the Indies and Moderates who voted for him have already realized the mistake.

The mid-terms are going to be interesting. Both Ds and Rs in the House and Senate are going to answer to the vote of those Indies and Moderates who were duped by the current Adminsitration and Congressional leadership's open lies.

Also add in the far left babyfitters who are not getting what they demanded for supporting the current Dems. They are really the wild card to upset the apple cart in 2010.
