Name one lie that he has told? Just one.
I'll bet you can't.
He was addicted to prescription drugs for pain....but he whipped it. I think he should be commended for that.
No he's not a Republican, you see you don't know him.
He's a conservative.
Oh, I see when you divorce your wife, then your considered running out on her, but if your John Edwards, Democrat....it's ok for you to cheat on your wife when she has cancer and then father a child from a woman helping run his campaign? Talk about sleezy....but that's typical Democrat style.
Not educated? Man you are lost...the guy is the
NUMBER 1 MOST LISTENED TO TALK SHOW HOST IN THE WORLD!!
I'm sure all those people that listen to him, do so because he's not smart?
Just think about it for a while......ok?
No, you definetley don't know Rush.
I think the people who listen to him are not so smart.

No, if you're a person who called for the resignation of Clinton because he lied about cheating on his wife and then sign a pact with America saying you will bring morality to Washington DC THEN you cheat on your wife and don't report it to the American people...THEN you are a hypocrite and sleeze...If you walk out on your wife for a young and rich one and then pass legislation to block the US from looking for anymore POWS, then you are a sleeze and hypocrite.

Hey Dufus Mcfly,
YOU claim the following statement about Cheney:
First of all, Cheney didn't make any sacrifices in Iraq.(NO DUFUS, YOUR RIGHT, AND HE NEVER SAID THAT) DO YOU KNOW HOW TO READ PROPERLY?????
"I would not want to see (THE U.S.)NOT CHENEY) waste all the tremendous sacrifice that has gotten us to this point."
Where in that statement does it say Dick Cheney's sacrifice? Did you go to the public school in El Paso? You must have, because any kid, even my kid and he is 10 knows what the statemtn says. I'm guessing you are about 8.
Cheney launched a war with FULL DEMOCRAT SUPPORT!!!! Where do you get this crap?
Even your boy CLEEENTON said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction....look it up on google fool.....just because your news media doesn't play it 24 hours for 2 years doesn't mean it's not true.
Your just a puppet of the Democrat controlled media.
Period.
Keep on being led by the GOP.

Now, the CIA is doing an internal investigation - panetta found out about a covert group of killers in the CIA, who by the way, answered to CHENEY!

I hate to burst your bubble, but the"killers" as you call them have been there for years and as much as politicians ACT shocked, they ALL knew it.

Kinda like how outaged and shocked they act when one of them gets caught with their pants down or taking "CONTRIBUTIONS". Remember the one that "FOUND" $100,000 in his freezer ?

Review your history, who had the President of Viet Nam killed and which PresidentS, notice it is plural, ordered hits ?

Any and all of you people who beleive that Cheny deferred serving his country in the military is to be dispised, I have one question for you. When and where did you serve? I served from Sept 1968 to April 1978, 1980 to 1984 and everyone of you spouting hatred for Bush Cheny are the same ones who spit and also threw various foul smelling products on wounded servicemen comming home. You like to despise people who serve but you surely enjoy the freedoms we keep for you. Once again I will say I will depise you for tou words and actions but I would give up my life for your right to say ad do as you do. Can you say the same? I think not.
My brother, my husbands and now my sons have all served this country in wars. Cheney and Bush never left the country and Bush actually was registered in the TX National Guard but changed to Alabama when his elite Rich kids unit got called to go to Vietnam........so for 8 years we had dumb and dumber running the country and a bunch of ditto heads agreeing to finance anything for the good of Big Oil, Big Business and Big drug companies. And with no actual experience in combat the 2 of them managed to start their own war on lies to the country about who what and where the perpertrators of 9-11 were from........fact is that 19 of the 20 were from Saudi Arabia but "of course our Saudi friends did not condone that" So let's attack the country with the most oil that could be connected.

If justice would prevail then both those cretins would be charged with war crimes and go to Leavenworth for the rest of their lives and not receive the pension and benefits plus the Secret Service protection which would save the country a tidy bit of cash........several million a year

I think you may be the first pollster from Texas to say what most people already know. Very refreshing.

Please remind me: What uniform did Obama and Biden wear? Oh yeah, none. Biden in fact received 5 student deferments from the draft....probably because he was a rich kid.

My point is that your hero, the chosen one, and his party are no better than their predecessors from the other side of the aisle. Once you realize that you might be able to make decision for yourself.

Just seen a Documentary and 9/11 Heros, Veterns and Americans are going to Mexico, Cuba, Canada , France, Great Britan, to seek medical attention... Sounds like the gig is up with the Insuarnce and Doctor scams and Hospital Scams... Everyone that is against Obama on this Medical revamp has been scammed... Obama will deliver the change we need... Other countries are sick and tired of taking care of our disease infested vile citizens , its about time we start taking care of our own trash...

First off, he is not my hero, or th chosen one. These are terms the disgruntled GOP use way too often - and it is so redundent, it has become boring.

He is the president of our country. You may not like it, but that's life.

Second, are we not going off track? Is this thread supposed to be about socialized medicine, as the GOP labels it?

In 2004, George H.W. Bush's brother, Jonathan Bush (Both Skull and Bones members) was on the board of Riggs Bank, which has been linked to terrorist money-laundering -- another Bush bank, down through the generations, funding causes like Nazism then, and terrorism now?

Don't worry.....there are too many stupid people who enjoy fighting over politics (as evidenced by the comments above.......they're all wanting their party to be the "winner").....to even consider socialized medicine. We already HAVE socialized medicine....it's called Medicaid and Medicare...... and as far as I know there is more freedom in choosing a doctor with those plans than exists if you are involved with an HMO. My understanding of HMOs is that an insurer searches around until they find a health care provider who has an empty.....or almost empty waiting room......and he agrees to "work for them." If you have coverage with this provider....you are then limited to the health care providers THEY identify..... If these are excellent providers it would seem they would not NEED to work for HMOs.... What is the difference between the level of care one receives from providers under HMOs, Medicaid providers and Medicare providers. I've had many people tell me the "quality" of care is similar.......... Medicaid IS paying for socialized medical care? Is this true? If this type of "quality" care is good for low income ....and we hear all of the time that it is....then why doesn't the rest of the nation want to receive care paid for by a similar plan?
