Flawed analysis of Rush Limbaugh

I turned to his show while driving today -- utter nonsense coming out the speakers. He was going on about how the whacky belief by liberals in some climate fantasy was responsible for high gas prices -- going for ethanol is what has driven up the price.

Liberals. They done it.

Don't be fooled by any notions that China and India have amped up Global demand or that his hero DUBYA-dingle has managed to throw the middle east into upheaval. It's liberals, I tell you, LIBERALS!!

And, speaking of flawed logic, I can't remember a time when the middle east wasn't in upheaval, and I'm older than Shrub.

Middle east is jumped up more now that usual.

I can only take so much Limbaugh. The man is a full time propagandist. His devotion to truth is non-existent.

Shrub is no guarantee for perfect memory.

Same thing as always. Right wing liberals in the clitch with left wing liberals and/or vice versa.

You may certainly laugh at Rush, after all he is an idiot--all conservatives are idiots. Isn't that standard liberal "logic"
Or,
Or you could listen and see if there might be just an element of truth in what he said.
Just a hint...
Probably not----I doubt if the many different blends required by each different metropolitan area has any effect on prices.
I also doubt that the mandates to use ethanol have any effect on either fuel or food prices.

Liberals never want to look at the results of their populist, flawed policies.

If you listened more often you might know that he is not a great fan of the President.

There is an interesting distinction between 'nuisance' and 'threat', yet both can be annoying.

.

If you look at who is behind ethanol you will find large corporations
like ConAgra and and GM.

Ethanol is not a liberal idea !

Rush is extremely biased toward the right wing conservatives.
He is most defiantly wrong in trying to claim that all of the woes of
the country are the fault of liberals.

His perpetual attempts to polarize people into two groups
liberal and conservative
is a very base and ugly thing.

How different is he from a racist, or sexist ?

The things he says are disgusting on a human level.

He is not talking politics, he is talking hate.

He is not a wise political sage.
He is a disgusting hate monger pandering to the rest of the hate mongers
of this world so he can make a buck.

He is making lots and lots of money off of the backs of people who are
not smart enough to realize they are being pandered to.

If you think his fat, drug addicted ass gives a siht about you or the
conservative party, you are a fool.

He has repeatedly shown that he has no compassion for anyone.

A true conservative would not destroy the US economy by creating and flushing a trillion dollars down the toilet in unnecessary war.

All the while your own country's infrastructure is crumbling.

But your friends are getting rich.
