The only hatemongering is in these comments. I bet you who call Rush a racist hatemonger have never listened to his show and have no evidence that he's a hatemonger or a racist.

Newsflash: Rush exposes those who care little for the Constitution. I tell you what, read the Constitution, then tell me which Democrats are upholding it.

LMFAO @ Wes, and Diane, you don't seem any better than the rest--wishing death on everyone else.

Amazing all of the hate comments that come from people that do not listen to Rush. They are a part of the group that gets their news spoon fed to them. Vote for Obams (ok) taxes are good (ok) sarah is bad (ok) Gov health care is good (ok) Olbermann is a genius (ok) I pity them all. Oh gosh, I forgot. Don't dare listen to the evil Fox News.

God Bless you Rush

He was rushed to hospital in a socialist ambulance after being treated by the staff of a government run fire department.

Rush will blame his heart attack on McDonalds and Burger King, he will accept no responsibility for his grossly inflated arteries and somehow this may end up being Obama's fault as well.

I absolutely hope he lives, until Friday.

I'm sure this is somehow Obama's fault.

I hate to see a person sick, but Rush you ARE an a $ shole deluxe.

Well said #14! The liberals attack him because they are afraid of him. He tells it like it is and doesn't hold back. Our prayers to Rush for a quick recovery.

What a terrible thing for me to say!! Sorry. Hope Rush is okay.

Do you dumbasses realize that YOU are spewing hate and venom with your death wishes? Get outta your momma's basement and actually listen to his show instead of letting media matters think for you.
Prayers up for El-Rushbo.
