Obama is nation’s greatest disaster


There are some 25 million people listening to Rush Limbaugh every day and I would like to see that number double.

Lately he has coined a phrase, “low information voter.”

Would you fit this description? Do you vote on your emotions without rational thought? Are you voting to fill your personal pocketbook with no thought about the future of your country?

The dangers we face with a socialist sitting in the presidential seat cannot be taken lightly and he is not alone in the drive for personal power. To gather a better understanding of our current president, I would encourage people to read “Obama Care Survival Guide” and “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House.”

The political maneuvers used today mirror those of Germany in the 1930s. In my opinion, Obama is the greatest single disaster in the history of our nation! Does he want to be king?

Yes - becoming a nation of gimme gimme gimme and the money is gone so now what? Expect another downgrade on our credit system if something isn't done shortly.

A discouraging example of the consequences of inadequate government funding for education... Listening to talk radio is a poor substitute for an accurate understanding of history and sound critical thinking skills.

Rush is awesome! It's cool how he cheer-leads for war yet avoided the draft during Vietnam because of an anal cyst. I love how he is for strict drug laws and then had to go to rehab for his oxycodone habit.
He's a conservative with strong family values! Just ask his current wife (number 4) or the three before her.
I'm not sure why he had Viagra not prescribed to him while vacationing in the Dominican Republic, but maybe one of his wives can tell us. Oh, that's right he was single at the time. But he can point out who a slut is with the best of them!

Rush Limbaugh - a draft dodging, adulterer drug addict. A great role model for any conservative.

25 million people listening to Rush daily! Actually, only 1/10 of 1% of our 350 population listens to Rush Limbaugh.

Radio counts listeners in quarter hour increments. If you listen to Rush for 15 minutes, you're one listener. Listen to him for half hour, you're two. The full hour, four, and so on.

As for Rush's comment about "low information voters," that is the Republican Electoral Base. These voters are "single-issue" voters, that vote for a candidate that validates their own biases; whether it's anti-abortionists, creationists, homophobes, anti-immigrationists, etc.

Also, for people that continue to complain about "socialists" running this country, then how many of these could you live without, that each and everyone of you benefit from daily.

No TV for over forty years, but I can see Mr. Obama is turning out to be as good a president as Mr. Clinton. Now that we have quieted these anti-tax, anti-government wingers, we may be able to get on with life -- JHV

George W. Bush was the biggest disaster in the nation's history. He got us into a war in Iraq for no reason at all resulting in thousands of deaths, more thousands wounded and billions of doillars wasted. Obama is a saint compared to Bush.

Echo, echo, echo! I had no idea, that anyone loved the town of Echo, Oregon so much, that you had to repeat it 3 times! :)
