article imageLimbaugh's Remarks on Health Care and Kennedy Condemned by Dems

By Carol Forsloff     Mar 7, 2009 in Politics
Just when you think Limbaugh might have gone too far, here comes another zinger. To announce about the health care bill “before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care bill” takes insensitivity over the top, some say.
The Huffington Post took Rush Limbaugh on for his remarks made Friday about the healthcare bill and Kennedy. Not only did Limbaugh make light of Kennedy's cancer, he said that Obama was taking on health care because he can't solve the economic crisis.
Brian Wolff Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Executive Director declared this in response:
"Rush Limbaugh's reprehensible remark that, ' before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care bill' is truly outrageous.
"Leader Limbaugh minimizes the struggle of hardworking Americans without access to affordable health care and demonizes a patriotic Senator who has spent his life fighting so that every person has the opportunity to live the American dream.
"Leader Limbaugh crossed the line. National Republicans must stand up to their leader, Rush Limbaugh, and tell him that enough is enough."
Democrats have asked Michael Steele, the Republican Party Chairman, to step in and denounce Limbaugh. That's likely not going to happen since Steele has apologized for criticizing Limbaugh and called him a “national conservative leader.
With Limbaugh there seems to be no sacred cows or considerations in his remarks. Wish Obama to fail as President. Make fun of Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's disease. Enjoy what other people consider profane caricatures of Obama as a monkey, then be forced to apologize. Describe feminism as something invented to allow ugly women access to the mainstream. Advise a black caller to his radio show: "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back." These are some of the things he has done, according to the Seattle Times and other newspapers as well as from excerpts of his radio shows posted on Limbaugh's web page.
Democrats maintain Rush Limbaugh is the voice of Republican Party, but as the party no longer in power and with unpopular ratings, folks are wondering if that's the voice they want.
