Attacks on Rush Limbaugh backfire

Limbaugh's ratings spike amid Dem attacks

I just knew that this would happen.
A conservative media watchdog group says recent Democratic attacks on Rush Limbaugh may have given a big boost to the talk radio host's ratings.

According to the Media Research Center, stations that carry Limbaugh's day time talk show experienced a "dramatic surge" of listeners in February — the month when congressional Democrats and even President Obama publicly took swipes at the conservative talker.
Rush is laughing all the way to the bank. All Obama and the Democrats did was give Limbaugh a priceless amount of free publicity when they attacked him, and the ratings show what happened.

As we learn more and more about how Obama plans to lead this nation down the road to socialism, conservative voices will become more important. The likes of Rush Limbaugh will be there to provide a counterweight to Obama for millions of radio listeners to hear. And with most of the mainstream media except for Fox News controlled by the liberals, we will need conservative talk radio as never before.

So I say to Obama and company, "bring it on." Keep up the criticism of Rush Limbaugh and his compatriots on talk radio. The more that you open your big mouths the more people will tune in to talk radio and the more people will hear the truth about the sorry state of affairs being created by your ultra liberal policies.

Of course the liberal elite hates Rush with a passion. And that's fine. Rush is not conducting a popularity contest. He is a communicator and an entertainer, and every day thousands more tune in to hear his take on events of the day. The election of Obama was tragic for the well being of the country, but speaking strictly on the basis of ratings, it was the best thing that ever happened to Limbaugh since Bill Clinton.

Liberals will continue to try to silence Rush. They will continue to try to resurrect the so-called fairness doctrine in an attempt to blatantly censor what Rush has to say. We Americans who believe in fairness and free speech have got to make it clear to the Democrats that we will not stand for this cynical attempt to neuter Rush and his opinions. If they don't like what Rush has to say, let them start up their own talk show so that they can give voice to their opposition. I would love to see a few more far left talk shows fail just like Air America did. LOL.

Rush Limbaugh is a disease for the
Republican Party. He is self destructive. I respect your opinion, nice blog.
Hello John; I'm just in the process of approving your blog!
Thanks Anji. BTW, I enjoy all of your blogs, especially the one about postcards.

John
I agree, keep attackin Rush, Orielly, Hannity and Beck. Liberals are doing more to spread the conservative message than conservatives could ever hope to achieve on their own. Obama is using the bully pulpit to help us out. It's the only thing he has done so far that I agree with.
There is plenty of thanks to go around. We can thank George W. Bush for giving us President Obama, who gave us Rush Limbaugh. It'a just one big circle. Peace.

John, You make an excellent point. I have been hugely critical of the attacks on Limbaugh for another reason: It's a diversion from the real issues! And I think that is what the so-called progressives want to do. If they can get their base all upset about Limbaugh, then they divert attention from the real problems facing America.

It's a political ploy as old as time itself.
