I used to Lis.ten to Rush daily for 5 plus years. I credit Rush for getting me interested in politics in the first place.
Like most Dittoheads, I trusted that Rush was right about most things...
I then got a job where I wasn't able to listen daily anymore...
Then the Bush administration took over, I actually voted for Bush when he was appointed president in 2000.
Most everything the Bush administration did I disagreed with, especially going to war with Iraq. This made no sense to me.
A friend at work turned me on to Democracy Now, and Thom Hartmann.
The more I listened, the more I realized that this is where I belong. Whenever I'd tune back in to Rush, he was always supportive of Bush no matter what stupid thing Bush happened to be doing at the time.
Now, since Obama has been President, the Republicans seemed to have driven off the cliff and into the Grand Canyon.
I can't even imagine ever voting for a Republican again. I am for fiscal resposibility, and I am Pro-life... but not when they blame and damage the working class (which I am a part of) and kill doctors as their solutions.
