Specter and Limbaugh

Every Pennsylvanian should be made aware of Senator Specter’s feelings towards Rush Limbaugh. He likes Rush. Read the details here

Some excepts from the article:

Howard Stern: Are you OK with Limbaugh? You like him?

Arlen Specter: Do I like Rush Limbaugh?

HS: Limbaugh, yeah

AS: Yeah, I like him

HS: You do…

AS: Yeah

HS: You met with him?

AS: Yes I have


HS: He’s a crackpot? He’s an enemy of the country.

AS: (laughing) Uh, no, he’s not. He’s expressing his opinion.

HS: Senator, wait a second. In all seriousness. He wants the president to do poorly? Listen, I never voted for Bush, but I always wanted to see him do well. I’m an American. I want my president to be successful. Who says ‘I don’t want my president to do well?’ That’s anti-American!

AS: Well I haven’t heard Rush Limbaugh say that. But there’s a lot of talk which is provocative.

HS: Yes

AS: There’s a lot of comment – you fellas, and I know this doesn’t apply to you Howard, probably doesn’t apply to Rush, but some of these talk show guys want to attract an audience. And the more provocative, the more audience, the more ratings, the more money.

What surprises me is that Senator Specter claims that he never heard Rush Limbaugh make the statement that he hopes that “Obama fails”. Rush has said this several times and most of the media has relayed this message to the public. Either Senator Specter is not paying attention to any of the media or he is a liar.
