Topix Staff Story

Veteran radio host Rush Limbaugh is upset with presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's remarks about the very poor, their safety net, and the GOP contender's lack of concern for the former due to the latter. But not for the typical reason. The Huffington Post reports:

Limbaugh made it clear that, to him, the line was another big misstep for the former Massachusetts governor. He said that Romney should not have actually been defending the “safety net,” because any social welfare programs are destructive.

As the controversial but popular icon of AM radio puts it,

The safety net is one of the biggest cultural problems we've got!”

Nor was he happy with Romney's attempt to make amends for his gaffe by supporting an increase in the minimum wage, according to Mediate's James Crugnale. For Limbaugh, it only cast further doubt on Romney's conservative credibility.

What do you think? Is Rush right to question the safety net itself, or is Mitt the sensible one here?

Anyone know how many "people of color" are allowed in the Mormon "church?"

They discriminated against black, still do against gays and women- having paid millions as out of state carpetbaggers on California's proposition 8.

California had little say in the matter of it's own legislation- Mormons using their wealth as a weapon against equal rights- disqualifies Romney from being president.

Can't wait to see if the Reich wants to get into another pissing contest by bringing up Reverend Wright.

This is one fight I'd relish.

Speaking of oxycontin...

Did you hear that fake Teabaggers are all going to support Romney????

It's time for the 99%ers to start to replace the Teabaggers.

Isn't it ironic how the Teabaggers NEVER want TAX RELIEF fot the 99%ers?

They only like CORPORATE WELFARE for their UNPATRIOTIC buddies, BIG OIL, the BANKSTERS, and all the other CORPORATE SOCIAL WELFARE QUEENS.

Those SOB's are making RECORD PROFITS and BONUSES while soaking Middle Class tax payers for handouts, bailouts, and tax credits.

What do they do with their money (unearned income)?

Those gluttonous Mammonites sit by the pool waiting for the dividend to arrive to shop at Tiffany & Co., suck down some oxycontin (SOMETIMES the GUILT is UNBEARABLE), then squirrel away their RECORD PROFITS and BONUSES in SECRET OFF-SHORE BANK ACCOUNTS, where it is laundered by and for the underworld for nefarious purposes, never the betterment of this world.

Those SOB's love war, but want working class and Middle Class Americans to PAY for it, with blood, sweat, tears, and MONEY.

Teabaggers are HYPOCRITES! Those Bush holdouts in hiding are False Christians and Mitt Romney is their NEW LEADER!

Mitt Romney for President, of the Cayman Islands, 2012, NOT FOR PRESIDENT OF AMERICA!

November can't come fast enough. We have to get rid of this DO-Nothing CONGRESS and get some justice for We the People.

It's time for the 99%ers to start to replace the Teabaggers.

Seems odd that Topix editors of late are creating their own news threads.

Don't you wonder why?

Yes it is a shame that some denominations still call actually follow the bible..........instead of bending to liberal rewrites.

People like Limbaugh hate EVERYONE who isn't as rich as they are.

They don't distinguish between homeless, poor, or even lower/mid middle class. If you don't have millions (like Limbaugh and Romney and the rest of them) you just need to go off and eat sh*t and die. They'll tell you that if you lose your job it's your own fault. They applaud companies that offshore jobs or get rid of workers because people like Limbaugh don't care about workers.

It's time Limbaugh and his cohorts learn what it's like to be unemployed. Stop listening to them. Write to their sponsors and tell them you will no longer buy their products if they advertise on these shows. Americans can teach these arrogant pigs a lesson in humility. They've been flying too high for too long and they think are untouchable. It's time they meet the unemployment line.

Once Slush Limpballs realized he wasn't going to face any real consequences of being a drug trafficker and user, he went back on the "stuff" immediately.

Rosita, his illegal housekeeper was back up at the Denny's on Belvedere Road in West Palm at 3 am with his cigar box full of cash, ready to make the score.

He needs to get his jaws wired shut from what I saw of him recently- challenging Chris Krispy Kreme in the heft department.
