    Your own philosophy is a lot closer to Rush than to Shaman, but that doesn't make either one of them right much of the time. Sure, Rush is right sometimes, but, then, a stopped clock is right twice a day. His use of terms like "info babe" and the "lamestream media" is just a way to get attention, and means nothing. No doubt Rush could bury Shaman in a fair debate, but I'd like to hear Rush in a debate with a real, non radical but liberal leaning and well educated hard news type in a forum where he can't simply hang up on them. No way could he hold his own. Of course, he does OK with the extreme liberal nutcases he allows to call his show, but a real debate with a real newsie? No way.

    I think that you might be making a statement based on opinion, and not so much on fact. I've seen rush in interviews as well as prime time news shows in interviews. He more than held his own. Because you don't like someone doesn't mean that they are dumb. Also he no longer calls them the lame stream media....they are now the "drive-by media". Pretty accurate description at times. :D

    I'm always a bit confused by this. Nearly anyone on the left that calls up Rush, gets put to the head of the line. He loves to debate people. I can even remember a guy who called into a liberal show, and said he gets through to Rush constantly. Rush himself has said, feel free to call if you are liberal. I suppose it's just automatic that people assume he must screen out all the "good liberals" and only allow through the "bad liberals".

    That said, Rush has been interviewed a number of times by a number of new people. I've never seen him do poorly. Moreover, the press has routinely been deceitful towards conservatives a number of times.

    In one instance, they invited him on, if I remember Crossfire about a specific topic, and then once the show started, popped a completely different subject. They did the same thing to Laura Schlessinger. Asked her to come a show to talk about her book, then as soon as the cameras turned on, never mentioned her book, but started attacking her on a completely different subject. Something about daycare I believe.

    It reminds me a bit about the Fair.org Rush Limbaugh error list. Back in the 90s, under the paid direction of Jeff Cohen, a left-wing nut case, Fair.org issued a list of supposed Rush Limbaugh errors. Rush issued a response, the was never printed anywhere in the mainstream press. But ironically, the Fair.org response to Rush's response, was printed.

    You claim Rush wouldn't debate these people? He has, just no one knows because of their one-sided coverage. How many people have actually heard Rush's CPAC address to the nation? Yet they claim they know what he said without watching it. It's pretty sad really.

    Why would this bother us? It seems perfectly normal for global socialist to accept the socialist president of the U.S.A.:rolleyes:

    I'm sure you would love to pat your boy on the back, but are you even remotely aware that it is the world bank's intervention along with other nations who are in worse shape than we are that need our ecomony to get better, so that theirs do? The dollar still rules, Shaman. Do you actually think Obam-ba is making these decisions all on his little own because he's such a brainiac? Are you also aware that China is buying up this country faster than you can say "ramen"?

    Are you aware of anything real?

    Let me get this straight... one dude somewhere says that the economic recovery could be four months away, and this is proof to you that Obama cleaned up Bush's mess?

    Well first off, we already showed it wasn't Bush's mess. It was Clinton's mess, and congress who pushed for a knee-jerk reactionism to Enron.

    But even discounting that.... ONE guy, somewhere, is all it takes to convince you that this is all true? Even when the very guy you are quoting says "COULD" be and "Four months away"? That's it? You are this gullible, that one single guy saying something COULD happen, is enough to convince you... Well this explains a TON about why you are the least reliable source of information on this entire forum. In fact, it make perfect sense.

    Here's a tip... Obama more than three whole months ago, said that the bailout he supported was already having huge positive effects we couldn't see.

    Now unemployment is much higher, two large automakers are about to go bankrupt, and a half dozen or more of the banks that got massive bailouts, have already gone bankrupt or been bought out. OOOoooo yeah... Obama was right on the money on his theory there. Massive positive effects... no doubt.

    Reminds me of a comedy skit, where a gal was detailing all the times the stock market tanked, right after Obama won the election, got sworn in, and had is non-state of the Union speech. After which she comments "I thought Obama planned to redistribute wealth, but I didn't realize he was going to eliminate it entirely".

    A liberal blog is again your proof. Thank you for forwarding the opinion of someone else......Do you ever think for yourself or do any leg work for yourself?

    Do you ever have an original thought, or do you rely on blogs to tell you what to believe?

    Guys guys... NO he does not have original thoughts. Shaman never thinks for himself. He just posts inconsistent, unrelated blog articles, with multi colored links, and spams the entire forum with him. Never once having anything of value to say.


    Just... move on. It's a waste of time. Unless you are humored by him, in which case, let sarcasm roll!
