    In another thread, JustChritian said:
    "Has Rush EVER told the truth? Not to my knowledge. He's just trying to make a buck off the foolish conservatives who back him."

    First that is an outrageous statement.

    Some say he is an entertainer. Rush often uses absurdities to showcase the absurdities of liberals.

    In that thread listed above some posters were saying some unflattering things about Rush - in general.

    Here is my request:
    1.) What are the lies that Rush has told us? Please be specific.
    2.) Where has he actually been wrong about an issue? - not just an opinion - but in actual fact

    Salty

    ps, I have never said that Rush is right 100%, but most often he is.

    I think Rush should have criticized the Iraq war build up that happened under the Clinton administration.

    And I don't think Ron Paul is a kook.

    Interesting....that is not a lie. Hussein Obama's father was from an Arab-ruled country that is populated by blacks. He therefore has no "African-American" blood in him. He is half white, but that's all.

    Really? His father was from Africa and his mother was from America. It seems to me he has more claim to being an African-American than African-Americans whose mother and father were American citizens. Neither was from Africa, though their ancestors were, or at least some of them.

    Does that mean a Caucasian born in China isn't Caucasian because China is ruled by non-Caucasians? Or there were no Africians in South Africa when the whites ruled the country?

    How is the following for a Limbaugh "truth?"

    Rush said:
    There has never been a proposal to do this.

    But neither is African-American. There is not one slave in BO's ancestry, not one civil rights victim, not one ancestor who lived under segregation. That is why he cannot be called African-American, because the trials of African-American's over the last two centuries are not something BO or his ancestors went through.

    Now I don't really see where that is a big deal. His wife certainly is African-American and I think BO has knowledge of and sympathy for African-Americans, just very little first hand experience. BO never had to go to a second class school (unless you count Harvard) or ride the back of the bus.

    This is a classic example of liberals saying Rush lied when in fact he is 100% factual. You might disagree with his opinion but his facts are dead on.

    There is no proposal to take 401k money but it has been discussed many times. Ideas from a one time tax on existing balances to taking it all has been discussed openly. Rush is right on this also, if they can take it they will.

    Rush is on 3 hours a day 5 days a week. He almost never has a guest and does not really take that many callers. Most of that 15 hours a week is him talking. And the best you guys can come up with is that?

    Our 401k's are not safe and BO has no American Black ancestors. But these are both still pretty minor points. I thought you guys believed Rush spread misinformation and lies. Aren't there any big lies you can come up with?

    I think it is pretty clear who the real liars are on this issue.

    Obama's father came from Kenya but he is descended from Arab slave traders. His father was descended from Arab muslims. Obama has more Arabic and white blood than he does negro blood. Kenya is in East Africa. Most American slaves were from West Africa. Africa is a big continent.

    I posted about this once a long time ago, showing exactly the percentages in Obama's blood lines. He cannot honestly claim to be a black negro, because he is more white and arabic than negro. Rush was correct on this. And Rush usually is right - he has a great team of researchers who get the facts and figs before he puts it out on the air waves. His critics are the ones who need to do a little more digging for the truth, if they really care about the truth, which I doubt they do.

    This really shows the lengths people will go to just to say we don't have a black president. What difference does it make?

    The color of the President has nothing to do with the fact that I do not like the term of (fill-in-the-blank)-American.
    And I do not limit it to just African-American. This goes for any person who thinks they must sub-classify themselves.

    So back to the OP. What other Rush lies can you dream up....

    Actually, Rush Limbaugh admits his own research shows he is almost always right, only 98.5% of the time.

    peace to you:praying:

    Interesting fact....when I was visiting with the members of the Gospel Light BAPTIST church in Kampala, Uganda, those people told me over and over that they loved the USA and wanted to live here because they could worship without fear of the Muslims harming them.

    And Obama is opening his arms to the Muslim world......hmmmmm......

    Why not open your arms to the CHRISTIANS that are persecuted in that world?

    Could it be the MUSLIM heritage that Obama clings to?

    Call it What You Want....

    He is black. He is what he is. If he wants to be black, I will protect his right to be that. He is 100% right on this issue, even though I agree with Lady Eagle and a few of the others.

    In the eyes of the black community, he is "BLACK!" So let it be. There are other more pressing issues in regard to this president. Color is not one of them. Let him be black, because to say he isn't, will get you knifed in the ghetto....:thumbsup:

    It seems to be of utmost importance to blacks that he be considered black, even though his mother is white and he was raised as a child of privilege by white people.

    It doesn't cost me anything to not make an issue of it.

    I have always been totally concerned with his policies , not his skin color.

    When, in my opinion, his skin color starts to dictate his public policy, I'll speak out.

    Not that it matters now, but I think the point in pointing out that he was "less-than black", was in response to the idea that Black Americans would vote for him simply BECAUSE he's black, and not because he's the better candidate.

    Considering how many of our Black Christian Brothers and Sisters did just that, its justified... Because as a Christian, they couldn't vote for him, right? But many did.

    But like I said, it doesn't matter now.

    I started a new thread on this

    *********
    Previously stated:
    He is black. He is what he is. If he wants to be black, I will protect his right to be that. (end of quote)

    Well, suppose I have some feminme traits. Would you support my right to call myself a woman?

    What is interesting is that Obama actually called himself a "mullato" Why wont the Black community accept that?
    This was discussed in another thread:
    For further discussion on this, please start a new thread.


    Otherwise lests heed North Carolina Tentmaker:

    But back to the subject of Rush, since he was obviously factualy correct on this issue is there nothing else you Rush haters can come up with?
