Just a few Rush lies

Quote
OLBERMANN: But tonight's winner: the indescribable Rush Limbaugh. He has now defended the president bypassing the foreign intelligence surveillance courts to authorize those NSA wiretaps by explaining to his audience that it was one of those FISA court judges who wouldn't let the FBI examine the laptop of the so-called 21st hijacker [sic], Zacarias Moussaoui, which perhaps might have allowed them to discover the 9-11 plot in the summer of 2001. Of course, in fact, the FBI never even went to the court in that case; they never even asked a judge to let it read Moussaoui's computer. The FBI's own lawyers decided the bureau did not have the right to examine the computer. A later investigation suggested the FBI lawyers were wrong, and if they'd only gone to one of the FISA judges, the judge would have granted access to Moussaoui's computer. But of course, that's not the kind of story Rush Limbaugh wants you to know, so he lied about it, told it backwards. Which is why his listeners live in ignorance and why Rush Limbaugh is once again today's Worst Person in the World.

Quote
As Senate Democrats pressured Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) to complete an investigation into whether the Bush administration misused intelligence in the run-up to the war in Iraq, The Wall Street Journal editorial page, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News correspondent Major Garrett falsely claimed that various government reports had already done so. In fact, "phase two" of the Senate Intelligence Committee report would mark the first assessment of whether proponents of the war exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein's regime.

Quote
Rush Limbaugh cropped remarks by Rep. John Dingell to falsely claim that Dingell "refuses to condemn" Hezbollah. In the portion of Dingell's remarks that Limbaugh omitted, Dingell said "I condemn Hezbollah, as does everybody else, for the violence."
Aired on Rush:
DINGELL: First of all, I don't -- I don't take sides for or against Hezbollah or for or against Israel.
SCILLIAN: You're not against Hezbollah?
DINGELL: I happen to be -- no

Actual Quote:
DINGELL: Well, we don't -- first of all, I don't take sides for or against Hezbollah or for or against Israel.
SCILLIAN: You're not against Hezbollah?
DINGELL: I happen to be -- no, I happen to be -- I happen to be against violence. I think the United States has to bring a resolution to this matter. Now, I condemn Hezbollah, as does everybody else, for the violence. But I think that we've got to talk to them, and if we don't -- if we don't get ourselves in a position where we can talk to both sides and bring both sides together, the killing and the blood let [sic] is going to continue.


Quote
Rush Limbaugh downplayed President Bush's low approval ratings by falsely claiming that former President Bill Clinton "was down in the 20s at one point" and suggesting that Clinton had "parallel poll results" to Bush during the equivalent point in his second term. In fact, Clinton's approval rating never dropped below 36 percent, and remained above 58 percent in the Gallup poll throughout 1998, the equivalent year in his presidency to 2006 for Bush.

Quote
Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that after "the left-wing fringe threw a hissy fit" about The Washington Post's hiring of Ben Domenech to write for a conservative weblog on the newspaper's website, the Post "concocted some phony excuse that the guy that they had hired was a plagiarist" and "he was gone inside of two weeks." In fact, on the day of his resignation -- four days after his blog for the Post began -- Domenech admitted to using other writers' work "inappropriately and without attribution."

Quote
Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that Rep. Dennis Kucinich's proposal for a cabinet-level Department of Peace and Nonviolence would "[g]et rid of the Department of Defense." In fact, Kucinich's proposed Department of Peace would operate in addition to the Department of Defense to "develop policies that promote national and international conflict prevention, nonviolent intervention, mediation, peaceful resolution of conflict, and structured mediation of conflict."

Quote
Rush Limbaugh suggested that Schumer and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton had only recently emphasized port security. In fact, Schumer, Corzine, and Clinton have all sponsored or co-sponsored port security legislation and have also frequently spoken out on the subject.

Quote
Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed, "[Sen.] Pat Leahy opposes NSA [National Security Agency] intercepts of the enemy," referring to the NSA's warrantless surveillance program secretly authorized by President Bush in 2001. In fact, according to his statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee on February 6, Leahy "agree[d] that we should be wiretapping Al Qaeda terrorists."

Quote
For the second time in a week, nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court denied the FBI a warrant to search the laptop computer of Zacarias Moussaoui. But in fact, the FBI never petitioned the court for a warrant after bureau attorneys determined they did not have sufficient evidence.

Quote
On his radio show, Rush Limbaugh falsely claimed that "[t]here is no evidence that we could destroy ecosystems." In fact, there is ample evidence that humans can -- and do -- devastate ecosystems.

Quote
Rush Limbaugh twice falsely claimed that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had "admitted that torture worked on him" during his five years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. The false assertion originated in a NewsMax.com article and is not supported by McCain's version of events.

Quote
On his radio program, Rush Limbaugh falsely suggested that the "9-11 Commission didn't say anything" about "[t]his whole picture of the U.S. as a torturous, torturing, barbaric institution." In fact, the 9-11 Commission's final report called for the U.S. government to "engage its friends to develop a common coalition approach toward the detention and humane treatment of captured terrorists."

I can't wait to read Mr. Intenseone's response to this.

Are you out there Mr. Intenseone?

Are you feverishly devising a strategy to pin the blowhard Limbaugh's shortcomings on the Liberals?

But he's just not a republican cheerleader, between him and Sean Hannity they have the power to sway voters and I personally think they had a big influence on the last election. I haven't listen to Savage too much, I don't know if he is on in So. Cal....Mark Levine is awesome!

Brutal pointing out of Liberal blowhards without acknowledging Limbaugh is a blowhard. Nice attempted deflection.

The dogma is so ingrained in this dude's head that he could witness a Conservative running through a mall and shooting people and he'd find a way to either blame it on Liberals or change the subject to Liberals.

Zealots are a dangerous breed, on both sides, Liberal zealots and Conservative zealots.

Rush is a blowhard I'll admit, but he's usually right!

I have a few serious questions for you, if you choose to answer please be honest.

Do you understand that this country runs better with a combination of Conservative and Liberal policies?
 
Do you believe that there are just as many bad people that are Conservatives than there are bad people that are Liberals?

Why is it that you can never admit that Conservatives have made a mistake?

And finally, why do you hate Liberals so much, is it just a gimmick for the board or do you really ALWAYS complain about Liberals?

The quotes are from media matters.  Like I said, I don't exactly keep a notebook of Rush lies.  I have better things to do, but for example I remember hearing Rush tell a lie listening to the Ed Schultz show.  Rush said that Cindy Sheehan's story was just another Bill Burkett... That her story was the same as forged documents, none of it was real.  Well that's a lie.  Even if you don't like Cindy, she did infact lose her son as said.  That didn't stop Rush from telling his audience that her entire story was manufactured and not true.  Now It doesn't do me a bit of good to say this without double checking to see if I'm remembering right so I'll go look it up on mediamatters and see. Which is down right now so I'll just do a search.

http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=bill+burkett+cindy+rush&ei=UTF-8&fr=FP-tab-web-t400&x=wrt

Where I discover, he was busted in another lie by denying he ever said it:

http://www.bluebus.org/archives/20050819_rush_limbaugh_d.php

Now the Media Matters site is up where I obtain the actual quote and just as I remember hearing it when Ed was broadcasting from Cindy's camp in Texas:

Quote
LIMBAUGH: I mean, Cindy Sheehan is just Bill Burkett. Her story is nothing more than forged documents. There's nothing about it that's real, including the mainstream media's glomming onto it. It's not real. It's nothing more than an attempt. It's the latest effort made by the coordinated left.


This is the same thing I did last night with the other lies I had recollection of.  You wanted an example of Rush lying.  There are obviously plenty.  Oh I'm sure there is some spin somewhere for excusing most of them, but the fact is he is an established liar just as I said.  You would be much better off listing to Ed.  He's as middle of the road as you can get and has a listener base that without a doubt constitutes the section of America not sitting at the extremes.  But if you're an extreme righty more interested in deception, I guess Rush is your man.

I'm with you . . . I'm pretty conservative, but I despise Rush, O'Reilly . . . can't even really stand Savage. I like smart people, not people who make appeals based on emotion . . . preach to the choir, etc.

I don't even like Robertson or any of the major "Christian" figures as I think they take the message of Christianity and pervert it to gain earthly power.

Savage is one of the most evil of them all.  His level of rage and hate is only matched by Ann Coulter.  To bad for them Ann is probably a tranny, Sad they could get together and make little Hitlers and rule the Universe.

I like Rush but he blindly follows most anything th Republican party does..same with Shawn Hanity. Savage is the best of the bunch.....He tells it like it is and has shown the muslims for what they are..murdering pricks. I imagine he is seen as evil becuase he calls out the liberal weakness and cowardess we see in American politics every day.

Bluebus.org is a blatently liberal site, what did you expect. For Chirsts sakes, they have porn links on the home page. How do we know they didn't fudge the transcrips? As for Cindy Sheehans son getting killed...I don't think he was referring to that or doubted that. But she..like most Liberals, tend to make things up and personally I think she 's an attention whore who can give a crap about our country!

Legit question....why is you cannot stand listening to him. I admit he's self-centered and arrogant....but is he wrong? I listen because he puts things in  prospective and tells in like it is.

Also, has ANYONE listen to a full show for a couple of days to make a realistic judgement?
