Funny that a great majority of the world population does not think so, but about the same majority thought this about G.W Bush.

They must all be idiots, right?

Incidentally, Rush Limbaugh said today that Obama is doing better job than Al Qaeda destroying this country. I find that statement quite offensive and inappropriate.

It's all part of his campaign to see that Obama fails

A plethora of platitudes! ...to say the least. Damn bear, that was a big waste of bandwidth!
Let's see, you said "A plethora of platitudes!..and put downs of the USA. " and I asked the simple question of "What particularly offends?" The key word there was PARTICULARLY.

See, that takes gross generalities like "plethora of platitudes" and accusations like "put downs of the USA" and requires them to be broken down into specifics to add contractual specifics to the comments. Otherwise they lack meaning.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

But very appropriate! Why don't you become our ears and eyes on Rush Limbaugh? I hardly ever listen to him, but it looks like you do--so please keep us up to date on el Rushbo?

Don't believe everything you think

Time will tell if Rush is right or if you are just thin skinned.

Why don't you read all of those 6000 words and then honestly answer your own question? I mean for heaven's sake, his whole speech was what you call "gross generalities." Geeze bear, you're making yourself look like an Obambi groupie! How embarrassing...

Don't believe everything you think

I was not listening to Limbaugh - it came from another source commenting on this statement.
