    The leader of the Republican party - Rush Limbaugh.

    The "former" drug addict, who struck a plea deal to avoid a conviction on drug charges - got married last weekend for the FOURTH time.
    His new bride is 30 years younger than he is.

    What a pillar of "family values".
    What an outstanding example he sets for his party.

    Why would anyone give his words any value whatsoever?

    Actions speak louder than words - and his actions say sleazy dishonest hypocrite.

    He's "preaching to the choir." People who already believe what he's saying, of course, agree with him. And, sadly, that constitutes close to 50% of America.

    Negative comments get publicity.
    Fear, lies, and hatred get lots of publicity.
    Positive comments do not.
    The radical Conservative Republicans quickly learned this.
    And, the Teabagger Republicans have taken it and run with it.

    The leader of the republican party? LOL you are a total fruitcake. I think you forgot to take your medication this morning.

    Did you hear that he invited Elton John to sing at his wedding? What a total homophobe!

    The point is that Rush is not even a religious extremist in any sense of the word. He talks from a secular rightwing point of view even if he may personally be religious (which I doubt he is). The whole idea that "violating" traditional christian family values has anything to do with tarnishing a rightwing image politically is just plain stupid.

    Rush Limbaugh as the leader of the Republican Party is laughable. I listen to him. Some of his arguments have merit. But usually he panders to propaganda and hysteria to incite people. He claims to agree with the Constitution, but he forgets to oblige it when it is not convenient for him.
    We can all agree, Rush Limbaugh does not represent "traditional family values." I don't think he has ever claimed to represent them. We don't know his views on it, because every time a caller comments on him he hangs up on them.

    This is a good question...I am of the belief that the leader of the party is the person who is in the highest position of power. For the Democrats, obviously, this is President Obama. For the Republicans, I would say it is House Minority leader John Boehner. If the Republicans retake the House in November, Boehner would likely become the Speaker, or 3rd in line for the Presidency. I believe this makes him the defacto leader of the Republican Party.

    You stoop to personal insults.
    How pathetic.
    It says nothing about me.
    It just makes you look like a loser.

    Rush Limbaugh is an intelligent, reasonable person with unbelievable sense of humor, which gets him in trouble quite often. I've been listening to him recently, and though I disagree with him on 70-80% of the issues, I assure you he's not the things you accuse him of. Oh and if Robert Gibbs or Maddow or whoever didn't came up with the idea that he was the head of the Republican Party, then you wouldn't be mentioning it whatsoever. You would've even thought about it, or let alone, known who he was. You're a parrot, that's all. Can't think for yourself, kinda like many of Rush's listeners.

    Hey posters, can you tell me (and no offense to any of them) but what the heck is the difference between rickrick91 and Southbeach150 when it comes to the topics they post? What happened to true liberalism? You only preach it when it applies to your cases, don't you?

    No, that is not the point.
    I don't recall anyone mentioning religion, but you.

    However, countless Republicans (like Rush Limbaugh) who tout "traditional family values, regularly get caught in their hypocrisy.

    ---Limbaugh screaming about heterosexual family values, although he's been married four times, and become a drug addict ?
    ---Limbaugh hiring a gay man to perform at his wedding ?
    ---Limbaugh painting Hillary Clinton as the devil incarnate, up until she lost the nomination ? Then, he didn't have another word to say about her.
    ---Cheney and his daughter who is raising a baby, with her lesbian partner ?
    ---Senator Wide Stance cruising for gay sex in a Minnesota airport restroom ?
    ---ALL modern day Republican Presidents screaming about fiscal conservatism while they run up the national debt and do not reduce big government one iota ?

    It's all lies and hypocrisy.

    Really?
    He's "not the things" I "accuse him of"?

    Please name one thing I listed about him that isn't true.
    Just ONE.

    And, the difference between SB and myself is that I post facts and he posts right-wing BS spin.

    Who the Hell called Rush a "religious extremist", other than you?

    The offensiveness of his personal behavior has nothing to do with religion.
    What's right and what's wrong exists in a true sense that has nothing to do with the doctrine of any religion.

    Your admission that you choose to side with evil says a lot about your (lack of) character, and explains why you're a hardened Republican partisan.
