Say It Ain’t So, Rush! (By The Way, It Isn’t)

I keep seeing these ads on Facebook about sending Rush Limbaugh a ticket to Costa Rica.  The ad say that Rush said he would move there if Obamacare was passed.

Now I love Rush Limbaugh – listen to him alot, agree with him alot.  But I don’t always listen, and I don’t always agree.  This, however did NOT sound like something El Rushbo would just put out there!  Having listened to him, I find him to be meticulous in his speaking – not only eloquent, but very concise on what he means.  So I was pretty sure I could find out whether this was true or not.

As I said in the title, it isn’t.  As usual, those who want a thing, manipulate what is said (we call that twisting where I come from) to make it so – at least in their minds, if not in reality.

So, here is what Rush said:  Asked by a caller on Tuesday (I am assuming 3/09) what he would do if health care passes, Limbaugh gave this response:

“I don’t know. I’ll just tell you this, if this passes and it’s five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented, I am leaving the country. I’ll go to Costa Rica.”

And here he is saying it:  (please forgive the quality – it is an “anti-Rush” production)
