    Rush Limbaugh accuses Obama of "ordering the killing of three Muslim teenagers on the high seas." he called them "merchant marine organizers" who just "wanted to just give the captain back and head home because they were running out of food, they were running out of fuel, they were surrounded by all these US Navy ships, big ships, and they just wanted out of there. That's the story, but then when one of them put a gun to the back of the captain, Mr. Phillips, then bam, bam, bam. There you have it, and three teenagers shot on the high seas at the order of President Obama."

    I don't usually come here to the political forum but I have a question for Limbaugh supporters. Do you agree with Rush? Or do you think Obama did the right thing? Simple question.

    Look up the word SARCASM. He was making a point regarding the same arguments made in the past against Bush.

    Geez

    Apparently you either didn't listen to the skit (neither did I BTW) or you don't understand Satire. Limbaugh is an entertainer who uses humor and satire as a major component of his show. :rolleyes:

    Where did you get the idea that this was serious,,,media matters????;)

    One MIGHT be able to buy that arguement had this prick not been fired for making racist comments on ESPN.

    He can't say "Good Job" and move on?


    no...he says Obama killed 3 black teenagers....


    is he still the voice of the soon to be split republican party?

    Where were you when the media and the Dems were saying similar crap about Bush? Where was all your anger then?

    Rush was making a point, and you just validated it.

    Now, let's not exaggerate, ESPN got rid of him for accusing others of reverse racism - he just said that the media built McNabb up to be better than he is because he's black. That's a racial comment but not a racist comment. I know you know the difference.

    I saw the video of him as he made these remarks, there was no sarcasim invoved. He never smiled, he was dead serious at least outwardly. I really don't think Limbaugh believes the sh!t he said, but but he wasn't being sarcastic when he said it. But you'll believe what you want.

    I know your reacting to HD, but i have to say I have know idea where your getting this from. When did Bush have any "kids" killed? And how in the world does what HD said validate what limbaugh said? Makes no sense. :confused:

    Did you see the entire video or anedited excerpt?

    What was the source of the video?



    When I used to listen to Limbaugh he would frequently goof on his guest 1 afternoon he spent more than an hour saying he was planning to vote for Clinton instead of Dole...


    I am amazed at your gullibility perhaps I overestimate you...:rolleyes:

    I saw him say the remarks about imagine a white president orders black teenagers to be shot. I've been around long enough to know if someones being sarcastic (one of my specialties) and if their being serious. Like i said I really don't think limbaguh really believes what he said, it was for his audiance but it was outragious to listen to and see. And BTW ultra conservative josh Goldberg slamed limbaugh on this. Goldberg while not likeing Obama said that while he didn't like what obama stood for he applauded how he handle the situation.
    Just because you ay not like someones overall political viewpoint doesn't mean that there sometimes are things that you can say good job. Overall i didn't like Bush but i can say there were times when i liked what he did.

    Talk about gullible i know i'm not some brainwashed minion of a bankrupt political philosophy. Not being sarcastic either.

    The quote in the first post that makes me think satire is " merchant marine organizers", as I said I didn't hear the comments.. The comment about a white president shooting the black guys has a grain of truth in it there are double standards and political correctness issues surrounding these situations...

    IF Bush had given the go ahead on this i don't think anyone would say he shoot black teenagers. And if anyone did they'ed be low life scumbag azzholes. This trancends party lines, no matter who ordered it would have been the right thing to do.

    I agree with the part of this transcending party lines as you know from my comments this weekend. I am not sure that all on the left feels that way had it been Bush ;)

    If you're too stupid to know the difference between racial and racist, well, that doesn't surprise me. All Rush said is the media intentionally overhyped McNabb because of his color. If you think that's racist then no mention of anything pertaining to race is not racist.
