The Limbaugh article is 2 months old, but being featured now as current and newsworthy.  What is the current situation.  Another reason not to bother with the mainstream media, which are becoming obsolete by their own hand.

The whole Sandra Fluke thing is just another  distraction by the America  hating administration to  throw off attention to their failure to pull this country out of  the messes THEY created

Two things about this article point to the author's intended motives:


1.  They quoted the NYT. Yeah, the same NYT that has undermined and even lied about anyone NOT supporting the Progressive movement.

2.  The author didn't bother to tell their reader(s) that of the handful of sponsors that cut ties with EIB or temporarily suspended their partnership, there was a list of hundreds more companies trying to fill their spot(s).


Maybe the author should spend some time talking about the root of this particular topic:  Who is Sandra Fluke, and why did the Progressive leaders create a false setting/hearing for her to appear that she was really testifying rather than reading a script?

What people need to understand is the liberalism is popular with the general public. Giving other peoples money away and spending into deficit oblivion to ensure that entitlement programs continue is the popular thing. Consider how many people rely on those programs in some way shape or form. The right wingers such as myself tend to get bashed for speaking out against that spending. The libs make it out that we dont want people to have healthcare or food or whatever. The reality is we just want people to be self sufficient whenever they can be. Instead of being a drain on the system and the economy. Libs think its cruel to take entitelments away. I think its cruel to extend them. Who exactly is being helped. You give somebody all this free crap and you destroy their self worth and motivation. People dont need to be coddled. they need to be nudged along until they find their own way in the world. I want everyone to have a chance to succeed not to be stuck suckling the teat of entitlement programs for their entire lives. Thats no way to live.

Actually, Limbaugh's ratings for last month are all up 10 to 60%, depending on which radio station you look at: (wnd.com/2012/04/march-radio-ratings-in-for-rush-limbaugh/) That hardly qualifies as a "damaged brand."

Hey Ted....the rich work for thier money and somehow being wealthy is a crime. Whaaaaaaa Whaaaaa it not fair they have more than me! Everyone one should be equal. It boils down to this buckaroo.... It's not society's job or governments job or wall streets job to take care of you "THAT'S YOUR JOB! So stop the whining and get moving to better yourself , you pissant!

What a bunch of wishful thinking!. The quote is from the "New York Times" and the "L A Times". Yeah, like these are a couple of unbiased sources. Where is/was all the outrage about all the dispicable comments made about Sarah Palin, Laura Ingram, etc.?? The only "damaged brand(s)" here is the Democrat Party and its willing lackeys, the main street media.

They forgot MSN Money with a lousy article like that.
May 1, 2012 9:53AM
key words in the title?:  "right now"   - NBC should look in the mirror - they suck

Obviously a lot of liberal idiots out there this morning. Rush stands for what America SHOULD stand for.

May 1, 2012 9:02AM
Nothing damaged about Wal mart and Rush, I still shop at Wal mart and will, and so will millions of others, and I listen to RUSh and so will millions and millions of others, only media matters is in a twist. What is damaged is the DNC, AFL,CIO, SCIU, PITA, PINK<  NBC, CNN, ABC and CBS, and PMSBCand the NAACP who are communist lead and run organizations.
May 1, 2012 7:21AM

Add me to the 15 million that listen to Rush. Yes, calling Fluke was extreme but this article painting her as an simple law student is to the extreme also. She clearly had a goal and attacking religeon got her the notice that she and Palosi wanted.

Apr 26, 2012 7:38AM
Fluke never testified before Congress.  She did however participate in a news conference set up by the democrats to APPEAR like testimony in front of Congress, and which the media (such as you) willfully played along in propagating the facade.

America's most damaged brand is America. If you believe what you read and hear in the medial, and the opposing sides seem to agree, there has been a slowdown in the stream of illegal immigration.  That ought to tell you something. 
May 1, 2012 7:06AM
Rush uses absurdity to define absurdity. Why so many cant take a joke anymore in this country is the reason we are in such a mess.
Too many of us are quick to take offense rather than logically analyze and reason, a product of poor education and discipline.  If we all would slow down and think, most of problems could be solved. Emotions are not derived of rational thought but are the mainstay  of the the left.

I can't believe Bank of America isn't there!
