New Radio, Rush Limbaugh, and Obama's speech

I finally got a new radio after I ran over my last one in my garage a couple of months ago! This means I will now get to listen to my favorite radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh everyday now when I am at work! He is one of my heros. For everyone who has never listened to him, but only hears what the media says about him check him out... He is one of the REALLY smart ones in the political arena, and he is none of the things that the media portrays him to be. This morning he was talking about how ridiculous it was that Obama gave the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame (a catholic university of all places!) over the weekend. He was also given an honorary doctor of laws degree as well. I really can't believe they chose him given his stance on abortion and how evil the Catholic Church believes it to be. President Obama addressed the abortion issue during his speech. He said, "Maybe we won't agree on abortion, but we can still agree that this is a heart-wrenching decision for any woman to make with both moral and spiritual dimensions. So lets work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies, and making adoptions more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term." Rush had some very good points this morning. He said, "Where is the middle ground between good and evil? Where do you compromise? Where's the compromise between life and death? Where's the compromise between killing and birth? Where do you compromise on that?" He then simply asked why we should strive to limit the number of abortions... "Is he admitting there's something wrong about it, then? If there's nothing wrong with an unwanted pregnancy and if there's nothing wrong with abortion, why do we have to limit them? Why do we hope it's rare, if there's nothing wrong, if it's really nothing more than an issue of liberty and freedom for women, then why do we have to make liberty and freedom rare for women?" He is exactly right. Obama is trying to find middle ground between those that are pro-life and those that are pro-choice, when there is no compromise between embracing life or destroying it. There are no shades of gray. Why is it so " heart-wrenching with moral and spiritual dimensions" if you are not killing a human being? If it's just a tiny mass of mush that is irrelevant, why give it a second thought? To quote Rush..."He bastardizes his own argument here..." Funny, so descriptive! The whole transcipt is pretty good, if anyone wants to read it, click here. Some transcripts of previous shows are usually available for a few days anyway. To me, Rush limbaugh is definitely a breath of fresh air of truth and wisdom compared to most of the liberal media out there. I'm thankful I get to listen most days.

Hypocrisy is always so FAIL, almost as much as lying politicians.
