I think there’s an interesting debate to be had over Rush’s latest comments regarding how he sees our nation. That said, I always preface my comments about Rush by reminding everyone he’s a radio personality, albeit an extraordinarily popular one.
Look, when we have a man running the country who I frankly wouldn’t give a second job interview to, doing a pretty damn good job convincing American’s that shaving 1 penny off each dollar spent in Washington will bring about end times, it does say something about whether or not folks are doing their homework. I argue every day with people who are simply unable to move past their ideological prejudice to the facts. I literally find myself managing my time away from folks who are just too far-gone to partake of a legitimate debate. I can’t even imagine being on Limbaugh’s level, (though I wouldn’t mind that paycheck).
Nevertheless, I think Bill O’Reilly’s analysis is a bit closer to the actual reality than Rush’s, or at least I hope so. He thinks more and more people are just plain selfish. For my part, I’m concerned the proverbial clock is ticking while this battle for the soul of our country, which I predicted some years ago, rages on. Moreover, I remain convinced the President of the United States is a narcissistic ideologue first, who means to leave this nation humbled in the wake of his time in office. To that, I believe Americans would do well to wake up and smell the political coffee.
