Rush Limbaugh Says BP Oil Spill A ‘Non-Story’

Rush Limbaugh Says BP Oil Spill A ‘Non-Story’

On Rush Limbaugh’s show of December 19th, he stated that the BP Oil spill, the AP top story of 2010, ‘Ended up being a non-story,’ and that few people remember it. We could spend years refuting all the misinformation and outright lies Mr. Limbaugh spews on his show, but I thought this a good opportunity to remember one of the worst man-made ecological disasters in U.S. history.

It’s a Political Circus, Mr. President!

It’s a Political Circus, Mr. President!

My point, Mr. President, is that mud-slinging, bitter rivalries and personal attacks are facts of life in politics, as you well know. But what is occurring in this nation over the last few months is owed not principally to a divisive political discourse, but has its genesis in something far deeper and more insidious. It goes back farther than the mere divide of political parties, farther even than the Republic itself. The principle issue before us, Mr. President, is race.
