Rush Limbaugh At CPAC Conference

Bottom pic: Rush in the 70's as an east coast DJ, known in those days as Jeff Christie.

The right wing bloviating blowhard Rush Limbaugh made an address the other day to the Conservative Political Action Conference.
"We can take this country back," Limbaugh told them. "All we need is to nominate the right candidate."
He means the right wing candidate, the far right wing candidate of course. Now days he seems to consider himself as the de facto leader of the Republican Party.
Rush and the others of his ilk forget this is not just "his" or "their" country to take back. He can't have it!
It is the country of a huge and disparate population and all have rights, not just the ones Rush appeals to.
Rush also claims that President Obama is filling the nation with fear.
"He wants people in fear, angst and crisis, fearing the worst each and every day because that clears the decks for President Obama and his pals to come in with the answers which are abject failures, historically shown and demonstrated. Doesn't matter. They'll have control of it when it's all over. And that's what they want," Limbaugh said.
"They see these inequalities, these inequities that capitalism produces. How do they try to fix it? Do they try to elevate those at the bottom? No, they try to tear down the people at the top. "
That is such a ridiculous statement when it is Limbaugh and many others on the right that have long made the propagation of fear and resentment as part of their stock and trade.
