Truth is the Obama Democrats' worst enemy, and Rush told America the truth. He had the largely youthful audience on their feet time and again and he sent them home burning with ambition to join him in the battle to save America.
Listen to what he said on his show just the other day and you'll understand why Rush scares the pants off Barack Obama and his motley crew of character assassins and covert Marxists.
In his broadcast Rush challenged Obama to a debate, saying "Let's talk about the New Deal versus Reaganomics. Let's talk about closing Guantanamo Bay, and let's talk about sending $900 million to Hamas. Let's talk about illegal immigration and the lawlessness on the borders.
"Let's talk about massive deficits and the destroying of opportunities of future generations. Let's talk about ACORN, community agitators, and the unions that represent the government employees which pour millions of dollars into your campaign, President Obama. Let's talk about your elimination of school choice for minority students in the District of Columbia.
"Let's talk about your efforts to further reduce domestic drilling and refining of oil. Let's talk about your stock market.."
That's why the arrows are flying at a tiger who is very much alive. The White House believes he must be silenced. And that's just for starters.
