Day By Day by Chris MuirCarbonite certainly has the “right” to purchase advertising on any radio program or venue. However, their political proclivities have certainly become evident with their cancelling of ads on Rush Limbaugh’s Show .
David Friend, the CEO of Carbonite, an online data backup provider, said in a statement on the company’s Facebook page that he hoped his and other advertisers’ decision to pull their ads from Limbaugh’s show “will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”
I, as a consumer, also have the “right” to do business with anyone I wish and Carbonite will not even be considered by me. I recommend the same treatment for Carbonite by all conservatives.
Pro Flowers is another advertiser who has pulled their ads from the Rush Limbaugh Show. I note they also advertise a fair amount on other conservative talk radio shows, including Salem Communications.
So, will they pull those ads when they do not agree with the commentator? Or a guest?
I will no longer do business with this company either.
Quicken Loans, Sleep Train Mattresses, Sleep Number, LegalZoom, Carbonite and Citrix have also said they will pull their advertisements from Limbaugh’s program.
I like Clint Eastwood and have enjoyed his films for decades. And, I do not have a problem of him making some money on this ad for Chrysler.
What I do object to is my tax money being spent on bailing out poorly run automobile manufacturers in Detroit.
Here is Rush Limbaugh’s video parody of the Clint Eastwood ad:
John McCain’s mom bad mouths Rush on the tonight show, lol Rush says shes right and thats why Republicans keep losing.
Rush Limbaugh responded to Roberta McCain’s criticism of his tough radio persona Thursday, joking over the fact “McCain’s mother is dumping on me.”
“She is absolutely right” in her assessment that that she belongs to a different Republican Party than he does, Limbaugh said during his radio show: “The Republican Party she belongs to gets shellacked election after election after election.”
In an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Wednesday, the outspoken 97-year-old mother of Sen. John McCain said, to cheers from the audience, that Limbaugh “does not represent the Republican Party that I belong to.”
Rush Limbaugh discusses the National Council for a New America in relation to Gov. Sarah Palin on May 4, 2009.
Discussing the Republican listening tour conducted by Former Governors Jeb Bush (FL) and Mitt Romney (MA), radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said they are “embarrassed” by Sarah Palin.
Limbaugh said the underlying issue of these speaking engagements is that Bush and Romney “hate” and “despise” the Alaska Governor and former running-mate of John McCain. Limbaugh added they have “presidential perspirations” and called their tour an “early campaign event.”
Limbaugh defended Palin and heralded her as the “most prominent and articulate voice” for conservatism.
Sarah Palin is a definite threat to Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. Where do you think all of the latest rumors originate?
From the LEFT?
Obama and his minions are focusing on Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner in California. For without California, Obama will be in trouble in the Electoral College.
All of the rancor about Sarah Palin is NOT for 2012 but the “OUT” years of 2016 and beyond.
This is not exactly what the LEFT is making of Rush’s comment.
But, it an intriguing thought.
Alas, Meghan McCain won’t be going.
Late Tuesday afternoon, Meghan McCain fired back on Twitter. “RED TIL I’M DEAD BABY!!! I love the republican party enough to give it constructive criticism, I love my party and sure as hell not leavin!”

Conservative standard bearer Rush Limbaugh told his radio audience that if Governor David Paterson’s new budget passes, he’ll move his show out of New York.
He told listeners, “I don’t know what the breaking point is … when people leave, I’m leaving … I’ll sell my condominium, I’ll sell my apartment. I’m going to get out of there totally. This is just absurd.”
Limbaugh is just one of many New Yorkers angry about the Governor’s weekend proposal to hike taxes for those making more than $250,000. The controversial talking head, who came clean about an addiction to pain killers in October 2003, is well in tune to his reputation in the Big Apple.
“New York is probably going to celebrate that I’m not going to come back … They hate me, so they’re happy I’m not coming back,” he said on his radio show. “They’re going to praise Paterson for driving me out, even though I am rarely there anyway.”
Limbaugh quoted a statement made by Mayor Bloomberg years ago saying that, “there are 40-50,000 taxpayers in this city of 8 million that pay so much tax they essentially support the city. If even 5,000 of them leave because of the tax hikes, there’ll be a big problem.”
This is certainly Limbaugh’s perogative and the fact that New York Governor is being reported to have said that if he knew that Rush would leave the state then he would have raised taxes earlier certainly cannot be settling for high income New York earners.
Besides left-wing comedian Jon Stewart can pay his fair share instead.
Then, there was the Jaba the Rush video from Al Gore’s Current video operation.
Now, Meghan is staying classy again.
A follower on Twitter suggested I state the obvious but here goes: This is a PARODY.
Here is the video
Yes, it was. In fact, Senator McCain refused to support his daughter after her “Fat Ass” retort.
Exit question: Is Meghan McCain being disingenuous or hypocritical with her comments on the Current video?
In the March 16 issue of Newsweek (on newsstands Monday, March 9): ‘Enough! A Conservative’s Case Against Limbaugh’ David Frum examines Rush Limbaugh’s impact on the GOP and what conservatives need to do to assure people that Rush is not the voice of the partyWho is in charge of the national Republican Party?
- Rush Limbaugh?
- John McCain?
- Sarah Palin?
- Michael Steele?
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Republican voters say their party has no clear leader, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Another 17% are undecided.
Just five percent (5%) view either John McCain, the GOP’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential candidate, or new party chairman Michael Steele as the party’s leader.
Two percent (2%) see conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh in that role, and one percent (1%) name McCain’s running mate, Alaska Govenror Sarah Palin. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner are each seen as GOP leader by less than one-half of one percent.
This is as expected from a party that is out of power and coming off a Goerge W. Bush Presidency.
The Operation Limbaugh project enigineered in the Obama White House has been a failure and merely a distraction to a country seeking Presidential leadership, particularly on the economy.
As for David Frum, he does NOT speak for this conservative and by many political pundits is no longer considered a conservative because of his moderate to liberal views on the issues. Newsweek and the Washington Post who owns Newsweek needs to move along to another FAUX-conservative.
Flap doesn’t think Obama’s political operatives are serving the President very well with this Rush Limbaugh fight.
If the first six weeks of the Barack Obama administration can be summed up in one sentence, it would be this: Obama fiddled with Rush Limbaugh while Wall Street burned. Politico reports that the demonization of Rush Limbaugh comes as a deliberate strategy by Obama and the Democrats, who hoodwinked people into believing that a Chicago Machine pol really wanted to change the partisan nature of politics.
But, then again, James Carville and Paul Begala are Charter Members of the Clinton Cabal, now aren’t they?
