You would think the last thing any self-respecting liberal would want to do is enable rightwing attacks on the President. Seriouslyu, is it really that hard to find a reason to have the President’s back against a despot who used poison gas?
Limbaugh seems a little confused on the current minimum wage. He says it’s dictated by “the market,” but of course, it isn’t. He also indulges in the popular slippery slope argument. “Why not $15, or $25, or $50, or $100 an hour?” Learn how to handle that one, because you’ll hear it again.
Conservatives are blaming recent sensational murders on “the culture” … by which they mean “liberal culture.” Limbaugh says people are taught “you are the center of the universe. There is nothing more important than you.” He may be right about the message, but he is wrong about who delivers it. Capitalist businesses teach self-indulgence 24/7 right on your TV set.
Don’t miss this one. It’s good.

50 million people have opinions shaped by Rush Limbaugh. They’re everywhere, and you know them. It’s time to speak up!
It is perhaps the single biggest lie he tells. Democrats want you “dependent on government.” Why then, have Democratic adminstrations created 25 million more jobs than Republicans since the end of World War II? Limbaugh doesn’t answer that question … probably because he doesn’t know that little fact.
Newt Gingrich says they stopped Hillarycare because they had an alternative. He says they need a new alternative to stop Obamacare. Limbaughs disagrees. He says they should run on “free market” … which means “do nothing.” Here’s the problem for Gingrich and Limbaugh, Obamacare IS the Republican alternative … the very alternative Gingrich proposed in 1994.
Yesterday it was Republican ideas, today it’s capitalism itself. Find out why on today’s show.
