What is wrong with you vicious liberals? When your "hero" Ted Kennedy was sick, no one wished him ill.

Rush is a conservative icon, and is the best voice for restoring our country to the values upon which it was founded. And unless you people want to live in a socialist country, you better pray that he recovers and that we get a new Congress and POTUS ASAP!

We love you, Rush. In the Name of Jesus, we pray for your recovery.

I have never posted a comment anywhere before; I can't believe TMZ would allow people to express such horrible sentiments. Unfortunately, I DO believe that there are many ignorant, hateful, prejudiced people, as evidenced by some of the posted messages and the lack of compassion for someone would could be seriously ill.

Hope Rush will get well soon. TMZ shouldn't report about Rush on their site. I know TMZ is not a fan of Rush Limbaugh. TMZ like to talk about bad negative stuff and their guest comments are cruel. I am not a fan of TMZ. I go to the Radar Online site. I like their site better.

Wow. So many left wing haters on this site. Intolerant, narrow minded, hateful and bigoted. Bless you, Rush. Thank you for standing up for all of the Americans who know the truth because we have lived it. The jokers on this site are too young and stupid to know the truth. They have been propagandized by the left wing main stream media. Forgive them for they know not what they do.

I am not surprised at the quality of people coming out of the rat holes making such unkind comments about anyone. Where has morality gone. I frankly don't like Obama but would never wish death on the man or his family. Where does this hate come from.....?
