Is Limbaugh a political prophet?


Some preachers say the average person cannot understand the bible unless someone gifted with biblical insight decodes it for them. Limbaugh appears to be saying the same in terms of conservatism and politics. He scours the daily news and translates it into conservative context for the weak at heart who are scared by the power of the mainstream media. I used to call him a spin-surgeon but now I call him a political prophet.

    Not angry (at whom?), not paranoid (about what?), he;s a blowhard and condescension is his TM. He's there 4 facts, not to promote discussion. His show is to showcase HIS ideas. His is to foster debate, but NOT ON HIS SHOW. He can do what he wants.

    Time Traveler2...You call him.with 100% accuracy. Anytime I am unlucky enough to see him in a news clip, I think, "One pop to his obese belly and there goes all his hot air." Without that, he will no longer exist. He is a disgrace to humanity.

    I disagree. The show is owned by Rush who has sponsors who keep him on despite criticism. Rather than his going to bed, is there a reason you don't tune him out and change channels? Easy solution: If you don't like what he says, CHANGE CHANNELS.

    Very abrasive personality and can be condescending. Own agenda, is owned by NO MAN. He's a blowhard, but I respect facts.

    Sounds like you bought into his political rhetoric, my friend, and are enjoying the "conservative" ear tickle performed by old man Limbaugh. What term does Rush use to describe people with this condition? Sheeple :0)

    Incredibly well put. Rush puts it out there, uncensored, takes the attacks by the LEFT AND THE RIGHT. But, I bet the man can 'sleep at night' knowing that he wasn't compromised by allegiances and told his truth.

    Rush; prophet??Heck no.. But he calls 'em as HE sees 'em and is beholden to no one. Women do listen because they are paying more for groceries, bills, gas with NO JOBS.

    I just saw this, CJ, " A fact may be true or it may be false. It is a fallacy to conclude that all facts are truthful." CJ, A fact IS BY IT'S VERY NATURE, A FACT AND TRUE. A fact has been fact-checked and is beyond ANY doubt, TRUE.

    I'm sure you're including Andrea Mitchell, Chris Matthews, Gwen Ifill, Martha Raddatz, Candy Crowley, G. Stephanopoulos for space reasons.. Rush doesn't lie to me, He gives facts. I research them. He's not the conservative Pied Piper.

    My thinking is that Rush is a bit too partisan when he spins. I like him because we share the same ideology, but there's more. He provides an element to his commentary, which is CRITICAL THINKING, an ability that many Americans have lost.
