(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.

    It looks so impressive.
    One fat big mouth-garbage comes out of it.. it stinks.
    Let it go, he is not worth it. It is really the fault of the people who listen to this garbage. Who is paying for his salary?

    Rush is now on another billboard and it is thanks to the democrats. Is the person who came up with this dumb idea unemployed now?

    i hope obama fails too, but i am sure the whitehouse will control whether i keep my job or not.

    rush is a success because of himself not anyone else. like it or not, that is the truth.

    libs and the demcratic party cannot handle a successful person who exposes them for who they are. their only solution is witch hunt. pathetic.

    DNC must be retarded to waste money on Rush Limbaugh!! DNC has bigger problem of their own – like Kaine and Stem Cell research. Maybe they would be better off cleaning house before pointing fingers at others.

    Either way we don't need to no stinking dems or repubes. We need honest politicians. And NEO ain't THE ONE either........ Someone have mercy on this country. Oh baibeee jesus in your diapers, have meeercy on this country... Oh tom cruise pls do your vodoo and save this country.....

    Limbaugh spits out whatever crap he wants, and people accept it. A billboard isn't going to stop that. My problem with him is that so many people do accept what he says, and most of its completely ridiculous. Still...maybe a little more useful spending, other than a billboard, would be more welcome. Anyone in America who says that want Obamas policies to fail obviously care more about party lines than the country itself, which pretty much means I'm going to reject what they say outright, since its automatically biased.The country needs bipartisanship, not a person with a microphone trying to get attention.

  12. nobody actually puts their name here...

    I'm torn. On the one hand, I love it. I hate Rush, because he's a big balloon of hot air and nothing else.

    On the other hand, I'm irritated that the Dems can't come up with anything better to do with their time. Just because the GOPs have to slander and color everything doesn't mean the Lefts have to jump off the bridge with them.

    I wonder which DNC insider is taking huge sums of donors money for this meaningless gimmic..

    The oxycodon addict RL, the fatso with a falsetto voice, does not fit the criteria for a fitfully featured fracas over his failin' personality. We want to see him fail miserably.

    West Palm, the place hit hardest by the stocket markets reaction to Obama's election, may not be the best place to start this campaign...

    The DNC grows more childish by the day.

    Rush is a 'success' because he gives people an outside target for their own shortcomings and failures. He made 'liberal' a derogatory term even though the root of liberal is liberty. The Nazi's would have loved him.

  18. 35% of Americans are TRAITORS for wanting America to FAIL and 65% of Americans to SUFFER!

    That is the one I voted for after the quazillion entries were narrowed down to 5.

    The closer Lush is tied to the neo-cons they better for Dems!

  19. enough already

    Typical liberal morons. While decrying that we are killing the planet with SUV's and trucks, they hire someone to drive a huge truck around with a billboard denouncing their opposition.

    I agree with the Democrats, FIGHT! Fight for this country! Take the fight to his back yard because what is being done by Rush and Republicans is hurting this country. The claim that 95% of conservatives do not take heart to what Rush says or does BUT it appears that at least 95% of the Congressional Republicans care what Rush says or does and that is lethal!

    The problem with most of the comments that Rush is "just a shock jock" is that if that were true, then why did the shock jock have POLITICIANS bow down to him and apologize? We do not have Republican politicians in Congress helping to lead this country as we have RUSH LIMBAUGH a shock jock commanding the Republicans in Congress and across the land. When you have politicians looking to Rush for guidance, that is VERY DANGEROUS to this country. Until Rush commanded the Republicans, the House Republicans amended the Stimulus and appeared to work with the president and then when Rush spoke they followed his instructions and has since. This country is in bad shape when our leaders are taking marching orders from a shock jock!

    Numbers don't lie. The guy gets AT LEAST 20 million people per week to listen to him. And it's nice to know the tolerant, open-minded democrats are campaigning against him.

    If you don't like him, fine, but he HAS a right to speak his mind and can get paid top dollar for it.

    So what if he got addicted to prescription drugs? It happens to a lot of people, he sought help and got it. Why accuse him of unfair attacks and then do the exact same thing to him?

    RUSHing to judgement, RUSHing to head the crumbling GOP, RUSHing to make up his mind about Americas' status, RUSHing to be a druggie, RUSHing to stir up the minds of the naive, RUSHing to lead by fear and smear tatics... He is the poster child for democracy gone awry. I hope his 15 minutes of fame will RUSH to a quick END.

    Love it! I don't care if it helps Rush's rating either. Just because people listen to him doesn't mean they will agree. It's good to have a political dialogue going on in this country, even if it is sparked by the comments of an idiot.
