Democrats in Congress have worked themselves into a tizzy because Rush Limbaugh recently stated that he wants Obama to fail. That may have been inartfully put, but the fact of the matter is, many Americans agree with Rush, because they believe that Obama’s policies will be bad for America.
Democrats have called Rush’s words, “outrageous”, and have distorted them on the DCCC website:
“Last week, Rush Limbaugh actually said that he “hopes” President Obama fails to meet America’s challenges”.
They’ve started a petition to condemn Rush which they no doubt hope will be the impetus to to implement a “Hush Rush” type of Fairness Doctrine bill some time down the road.
Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters, says:
The war for freedom of speech has officially begun, America.
Be afraid! Be very afraid!
“I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me if I am doing such terrible damage to the GOP? Click here to send messages of love, hope and change TO ME via this petition!”
The Rush Limbaugh Show website has linked to the DCCC website and Rush has asked his listeners to tell the DCCC to stop distorting his words. Frankly, I don’t trust the DCCC to keep a record of the “reverse petition” comments.
That’s why I started this petition, which I encourage all supporters of free speech to sign. I will forward the results to Congress to counteract their “Hush Rush” efforts.
