Senate Democrats vs. Rush Limbaugh

Love him or hate him, Rush Limbaugh certainly knows how to make waves and shake things up. And liberals hate him for it. During his Sep. 26 radio show, Rush was speaking with an on-air caller about the utter lack of support by the left for the Iraq War. Limbaugh made mention of how the left goes out of their way to dig up a handful of soldiers to speak out against the war, as if to say, "See... this soldier says Iraq is a disaster, so it must be true!" Even though all evidence points to the contrary. Limbaugh specifically mentioned one soldier in particular, referring to him as a "phony soldier." This "soldier", turned anti-war activist, is Jesse Macbeth. Macbeth falsely claimed to have witnessed and even participated in war crimes in Iraq and received the Purple Heart. In reality, Macbeth was discharged after just 44 days of service, having never even set foot in Iraq! Yet, this didn't stop him from becoming an anti-war puppet for the left-wing agenda. His lies and fraudulent VA benefits claims landed him five months in prison!

So Limbaugh was correct when he referred to this soldier as "phony." But this is not how the infamous "phony soldier" comment was played out in the liberal media. The big media along with 41 Senate Democrats spun the comment in such a way that made it appear that Limbaugh was anti-military and anti-soldier. How dare he refer to our troops as "phonies."

Harry Reid and his fellow liberals in the U.S. Senate turned away from the business of running the country to publicly smear a PRIVATE CITIZEN! Forty-one Senators, all Democrats, wrote a letter to Limbaugh's boss, blasting him for his comments and essentially demanding that he be fired. Imagine... elected politicians publicly smearing and attempting to crucify a private citizen for exercising his First Amendment right to free speech!

Well Limbaugh has ingeniously turned the tables on the forty-one. He placed the letter on public auction at http://www.ebay.com/. The current bid is a whopping $65,100. Limbaugh will be donating the proceeds from the auction to one of his favorite charities, The Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation, which provides assistance to children of fallen U.S. Marines and Federal Law Enforcement Officers. Furthermore, Limbaugh has promised to match the winning bid from his own wallet.

Limbaugh has issued a challenge to Harry Reid and the 40 Senators who co-signed the letter to match the winning bid as a chance for them to demonstrate if they truly are as patriotic as they claim. We'll see if that happens. Here is a statement by Rush himself... "I would like to issue this challenge to Senator Reid and the 41 senators who signed his letter. You say you support the military. You say you're big, and you think it's patriotic, and that I was unpatriotic. Well, I would like for each of you, Senator Reid, and the 40 senators who signed, to match whatever the winning bid is. Show us your support for the U.S. military by all 41 of you pro-military people, Democrats in the Senate, match whatever the winning bid is and send that amount to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation."

This whole ordeal is not really about what Limbaugh said or what he feels. Truth is, Rush is extremely patriotic and supports America's Armed Forces like no one else! He is extremely popular among the troops, while Harry Reid and his fellow Democrats are nothing more than paper patriots. Consider this... Limbaugh's approval rating in the state of Nevada, Harry Reid's home state, is vastly higher than Harry Reid's approval rating! What this ordeal is really about is the left's hatred for Rush. He exercises his popularity and First Amendment rights to keep the left in check. When they lie and scam and undermine America's security, he is there to tell America the truth! It is truly a dangerous thing when powerful Senators attempt to publicly crucify a private citizen for blowing the whistle when they get out of line! The big media is in bed with the left, so without folks like Limbaugh, America would all too often be left in the dark.

The letter may be viewed/downloaded at http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html

C0-signers include RICHARD DURBIN(who once compared U.S. troops to Nazis), HILLARY CLINTON, JOHN KERRY, TED KENNEDY, BARBARA BOXER, BARRACK OBAMA, TOM HARKIN, CHRIS DODD, JOE BIDEN and others. These are the same democrats who refused to admonish MoveOn.Org for calling Commanding General Petraeus a traitor!

Go RUSH! Hoo-rah!!!

Considering some of those signatures are by some current Presidential Candidates, I sincerely hope Democrats wake up.
