Democrats take the fight to Limbaugh's doorstep

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee plans to buy billboard space in West Palm Beach criticizing Rush Limbaugh for opposing President Obama's policies.

The DNC sent an email to supporters Thursday soliciting a "slogan in ten words or less " that will appear on the billboard in Limbaugh's Florida hometown.

"If Republican leaders aren't willing to tell Rush, then we will," DNC Executive Director Jen O'Malley Dillon wrote in the email. "Americans want President Obama to succeed. Our country's future depends on it. Rooting for the President's failure is rooting for our country to fail."

The DNC did not offer any further details, such as when it plans to erect the billboard.

    NOW WAIT A MINUTE....I'm no Rush fan, but I think that the Democrats ared giving this man waaaaaay to much power, and putting up a billboard is going to do nothing but make the Demos look like the fascist for who they so call themselves fighting against.

    people like Rush go away when they are ignored, not when they are continuously exploited.

    So what with what Rush thinks...freedom of speech is just that....

    we all have the freedom to listen or not also.

    DId anyone watch Rush at CPAC? Am I the only one who thought he looked like he was high on something? The way he was sniffing, rubbing his nose, and jumping up and down looked like he was high on coke. From oxy to coke, eh Rush? DId anyone see that besides me? Don't you Repubs feel used by him, or betrayed? After the years of railing against drug abusers and then find out he was an addict. Buying oxycotin without a prescription. That's illegal, people! That's who you're worshipping. Sad. And hypocritical.

    Except Rush doesn't live in West Palm Beach; he lives in Palm Beach. How utterly childish of the DNC but that's not surprising. The DNC is comprised of just a bunch of dumb nut cases.
