Ready to Rumble for Rush

Mr. Obama threw down the gauntlet regarding Rush Limbaugh recently. The President told GOP leaders, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done."

This may be the first time a sitting President has elevated a talk show host to this level of power! However, silly as you may think this issue is, it is really about killing talk radio and free speech.
Then the mainstream media took some of his comments out of context (again) and piled it on a bit more saying Limbaugh wanted Obama to fail.
Now there is an ad pitting Rush and Obama against each other and the Democrats have a petition to express outrage at the comments Rush didn't make.

Mr. Obama and the Democrats are using Rush Limbaugh as a rallying point to continue their assault on any speech that voices opposition to their policies and agenda. The implementation of the un-"Fairness Doctrine" is the next step in this war.

Once we start down the path of curtailing freedom of speech on the radio there will be more. It will be the Internet, the television and other media.

We invite you to help fight this battle. Whether you are a ditto-head or just someone who believe in free speech, you can't afford to sit on the sidelines in the current skirmish.

We've set up a blog, and designated a section on the Read My Lipstick Network regarding "Free Speech" which includes info on the ongoing fight. We'll be letting you know more as this issue continues to mushroom.

Heritage Morning Bell: The Stealth Plan to Silence Rush
Does President Barack Obama believe that the greatest threat to progress resides in Rush Limbaugh? Earlier this week while trying to sell his Trillion Dollar Debt Plan to Republican leaders, Obama said, “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” Thankfully House Republicans listened to the hundreds of constituents calling their offices asking them to vote against the bill and not the guy who thinks he can buy their votes with a couple of cocktail and Super Bowl parties. Now we find out that Obama’s far left allies are upping the ante.The leftist umbrella organization American Untied for Change is pouring money into radio ads in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Nevada. The ads ask listeners, “Will you side with Obama or Rush Limbaugh?” ... More
