(CNN) - The Democratic National Committee's anti-Rush Limbaugh billboard makes its debut in West Palm Beach, FL Tuesday morning, the town adjacent to the conservative talk show host's neighborhood of Palm Beach.

"Americans Didn't Vote for a Rush to Failure" was the winning slogan in a DNC contest last month that followed Limbaugh's statement that he hoped President Obama would fail.

  1. To RUSH and JINDAL: I do not want the levees in Louisiana or Florida to fail, just the policies of the Corp. of Engineers building them!!!

    Why are all the neo-cons on the thread saying the DNC should leave Lush alone?

    You should be praising the messiah of the RepubliKLAN!

    You are proud that he is affiliated with repubs aren't you?

    The reason why Limbaugh has such a large audience is in direct correlation with our educational standards. If we don't require adults to take critical thinking courses, listen to news without injecting words like Socialism, Communism, Facism everytime a policy comes up that they don't agree with....This is what we get.

    A large number of IQ deficient goofballs that listen to the overweight pill popper

    I hope Limbaugh followers are much more visible. I don't care if his ratings spiked. We need to now which of our fellow citizens supports this guy and his idiocies. Once we've identified the actual number, it is a perfect justification for increasing spending for education. Our country needs intelligent citizens to compete in a global society. We fail to help those lunatics agreeing with Limbaugh

    Wow, most of the posts here from the libs are hate-filled and childish. Get over it, liberals....Rush Is RIGHT.

    You have to feel sorry for the conservatives. They rally behind a complete baffoon and call themselves ditto heads. How does someone look at Rush Pillpopper Limbaugh and see him as a symbol of what your party stands for? GEESH...we are talking pathetic and mentally feeble here folks

    As a lifelong Rep. my observation is that we better hope that this guy runs out of "gas" long before the 012 elections or we're cooked!! He certainly fires up the far right fringe but also certainly turns off the far larger center!!

    His rantings would mean certain death in a general election!!

    To Ryan March 31st, 2009 2:21 pm ET – How about instead of trying to be me, you bet me. Sure, I'd take you up on it. Heck, the way and the Obama and the Dems are tanking this country, by 2012 Coco the Wonder Iguana will be able to beat Obama.

    True, Americans (well the smart ones who didn't vote for Barry) didn't vote for a rush to failure, but we also didn't vote for Hurricane Obama to come in and destroy everything: the economy, the stock market, national security...well everything that is except for Obama's home, Pelosi's rat haven, and Dodd's Irish 'cottage'. Yet that's what we're getting.

    TO beachgirl March 31st, 2009 2:50 pm ET

    The sign should read ………………….AMERICANS DIDN'T VOTE FOR ANOTHER "BUSH FAILURE"

    Rush just like Bush are "THE BIGGEST FAILURES"

    Wow, harsh! You think of that all by yourself or did the DNC help you with that too?

    I would like to nominate Rush Limbaugh to be the next president of Iraq. Wow his big mouth sure would take the heat off of Isreal.
    Good Lord Hamas and Isreal would team up against him.
    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    I contributed money to the creation of this billboard. Funds for it were raised outside of regular DNC fundraising. I want people to know, in no uncertain terms, that I believe Rushbo to be a piece of human excrement, exceeded only by Aloph Hitler, in the destructiveness of his putrid ideology and rhetoric.

    I love it! Go buy another dozen just like it. Obama will pay for as many more as you want, with his endless suply of OUR money.

    Shameful!!

    An American who believes that Americans should fail if it is not done his way!

    How selfish can you get?

    How stupid can you get?

    CNN up here in Canada – we heard he is a drug addict – is it true!
    The only way to explain his stupid!

    Up here in Canada we hope you succeed in all you efforts – and I am a foreigner…

    If all America has is Rush Limbaugh to remind us of the constitution/ bill of rights then may the good Lord bless and keep him.

    Rush should be Irrelevant to the US voter. What is relevant are Obama's broken promises: No troops coming home, 30,000 more to Afghanistan, missles aimed at Russia, targets Pakastan.
    Voted for warrentless wiretaping, reinstate the Patriot Act
    Expanding NAFTA and GAT. New tone in Washington, R. Emanuel becomes Chief of Staff. No lobbyist to be hired? Adminstration filled with corporate lobbyist, ie, Lion Pionetta, a top wall street lobbyist now heads the CIA. New Gitmo law allows secret arrests and secret prisons to continue. Reflect the will of the people? Obama is the biggest cheerleader for the banker buddy bailout of the privately owned (Non) Federal, (Non) Revserve (Criminal) Bank of New York. It's a scam people! Both Right and Left are owned and controlled by offshore banks.

    Maybe the best way to deal with Limbaugh is to ignore him; I do. He like's the attention, there is no embarrassing this man.

    The Dems are trying paint Limbaugh as the leader of the GOP?

    That's a laugh.

    Republicans kneeling and apologizing to Limbaugh already made that clear.

    Let's not RUSH to judgement, but this guy only cares about two things and that is his ratings and his gas money for his private jet. If he's really leading the Republican party,...... no wonder they're loosing election after election.

    It is quite amusing to hear all the hateful comments against Limbaugh here. At the end of the day Rush Limbaugh is contributing to society, he is giving, while libs like you are only taking. Rush's existance is a positive, yours a negative. You are a drain on our nation, Rush replenishes enough to compensate for thousands of libs.

  22. Now this is great news!

    Wow. Now that's mature. The slogan is in bounds, but the picture turns it into a character attack intended to bolster the strength of the argument. You know what we call that? A logical fallacy – ad hominem attacks.

    Hypocrits like Limbaugh should be sent to Siberia. People like him think it's okay / capitalism when they get large tax give aways ( so called tax breaks.
