Roger.....both of them and Hannity and O'Reilly were willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt when he was first elected and stated so.

They have all said that they are POSITIVE the democrat party is ruining the country.
Even though they will NEVER admit it Rush Limbaugh's popularity exploded during the Clinton administration. the current administration will keep guys like Limbaugh, Hannity,and Beck alive and full of fodder..they thrive on controversy, thats why to me you have to take them in very small portions,because they all share the same talking points

The trick is not to be entirely consumed by either side and make up your own minds, but the media is a powerful force in today's culture and their influence reaches far and deep into the American psyche..there are way too many on both sides of the aisle that cant think for themselves and makes this country ripe for being controlled by whoever has the slickest marketing campaign and packages their candidate like a new laundry soap that you absolutely cant live without...scary but true..
