At the end of the day, Americans will either let this man have 4 more years or they won't.

I hope they watched the State of the Union.

I don't like Limbaugh but he is no where as inflammatory as Sharpton or Farahkan. For fuck's sake - a rape fraud, anit-semitism come to mind right away.
I must've missed Sharpton and Farrakhan in here.......

This is a political thread. Wildly varying forms of engagement should be expected.

Here is one to answer which I posed in another thread: What say you about the fact that she departed from the normal way of introducing the president upon his entry into the gallery? Was that a snub?

Ranks right up there with neo-Nazism and trying to incite racial tensions (there have been race riots in the US).

I think Rush is a full of shit blowhard but relatively harmless. Don't see Al or Louis the same. If you do, that's fine.

You compared giving Limbaugh the award to giving them the award. Ok, that's not saying they are the same. You win as always.

And it's not really that tiring.

Just a few of his greatest hits, the guy is a hypocritical piece of shit. I don't wish an agonizing death on him (or many FWIW), but to say he's done so much for the country blah blah blah and give an extreme partisan hack like that this award is truly mind blowing. Even if supposedly meaningless.

Both sides have jumped the shark and let their worst of the worst take over each party (especially the Repubs). It isn't good for anyone and I don't see an end to it anytime soon, which is really depressing.

Oh yeah, back on the economy talk. I did get a kick out of Trump begging the Fed to lower rates again so he can prop up the economy long enough until November. Even he knows it is on extremely a shaky ground due to his own policies and external pressures out of his control.

If it has no meaning then why does Trump keep saying he should get one?

The medal of freedom now has no meaning. To get one for spewing hate is pretty lousy. His acting last night pretending it was a surprise was even worse.

Because he's a narcissist :

This was just another way for Trump to say Fuck You to the Democrats. Plain and simple.

I get amusement out of all of these shenanigans. Then again I have a sense of humor and realize the orange sky isn't falling.

Buried in the election. Yeah Trump who said Obama wasn't an American citizen.

And Limbaugh who said a 13 year old Chelsea Clinton was a dog.
Nice try. Own what you said and you damn well know what you meant. What election is Rush going to get buried in? Dude is fighting stage 4 and you wish him death as well. When you open the door it will be karma and the USSS...

There are a lot of Americans, including democrats and independents, who were offended by how the dems acted in general, and Pelosi's actions in particular.
These people were celebrated by both sides, myself included. Pelosi tearing up the speech was petty but not directed at them. It was directed at Trump.

He did a good job staying on task for the speech that was written for him. He repeated a few things for emphasis and extra applause. A lot of obvious pandering but that does not change the experiences these people went through and they are all worthy of praise, respect, and admiration.

Eh, it was a campaign speech and he did his job delivering it. A bit too self focused, but not the worst I have heard. Trump is having a good week overall. I am having a pretty good week too. Hopefully we all are.

I didn't call a young girl a "slut" and "prostitute" and only apologize when commercial sponsor complained.

I hadn't made a career talking low about black people.

If you've got a more apt comparison involving a hypothetical with Obama, I'm all for it.

You do understand what analogies are, right? Let's start there, shall we?


analogy
/əˈnaləjē/
noun

a comparison between two things, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification.

a correspondence or partial similarity.

a thing which is comparable to something else in significant respects.

Well yes, but that narcissism drives a lot of his impulses and despite the thinking that whatever is good for him is good for the country it is just not the case.

Honoring Rush is more than a fuck you to democrats though. It is a fuck you to a lot of independents and centrists.

Rush is the epitome of rich, old, white, racist, and boomer. Great for people in those groups but not for the rest.

I used to listen to Rush and he was not as bad as some of the other guys on the shows that come on after him. Sometimes I was in agreement with what he was saying. Usually if he could make an argument without demonizing liberals or democrats. But if he actually addressed an issue in this country without the unnecessary insults I could usually relate to where he was coming from even if I didn't agree.

But his image and what he means to many that oppose him goes further than just liberals and democrats.

Maybe he can give one to Alex Jones next or the nazis at the daily stormer.

Lol, I think I read that the daily stormer was having to lay off all of their employees because their readers don't donate any money to them. Who would have thought that a business model that relies on donations would have a problem when their demographic is all parent basement dwelling incels. Sorry, I digress but going down the road of toxic speech naturally goes right from Rush to the daily stormer and Steven Miller.
