On the Right Side: Limbaugh supports U.S. troops

A few weeks ago, there was a letter to the editor that beat me to the punch regarding that despicable little man, Harry Reid, and his lies about Rush Limbaugh.

The happy ending is worth mentioning again since the liberal press forgot to fulfill its responsibilities of objective reporting. It is still trying, as are the treasonous liberal leaders of the House and Senate, to wipe the egg off their faces and hope once again that the public will forget about their embarrassing actions.

The incident began when, on the Senate floor, individual senators attacked Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen, about his supposedly calling any veterans who opposed the war in Iraq phony soldiers.

This is Senate business? They knew this was a lie before and during their ranting, but they were acting on orders from Moveon.org and trying to appease their ultra-liberal base. They also wanted to show everyone, by huffing and puffing with righteous indignation, how patriotic they were.

No matter that they have been making concerted effort after concerted effort to undermine the ability of our troops to win the war and exit with honor.

No matter that they forgot to denounce the Moveon.org ad insulting General Petraeus. They certainly can't denounce their puppetmaster, George Soros.

No matter that they have repeatedly called our troops baby- and women-killers and torturers. And, luckily for them, they have the mainstream media letting them get away with it.

Now, about the phony soldier claim. Rush was, if you listen to that portion of his monologue, specifically denouncing Jesse MacBeth as a phony soldier, a traitor who claimed to be a past Army Ranger and also claimed to have witnessed unspeakable cruelties committed by our forces in Iraq.

It turns out that, yes, Jesse was in the Army _ for exactly 44 days _ before being kicked out for not making the grade. He is now in prison for falsifying his Army records.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
