Rush Limbaugh said Friday that doctors 'found absolutely nothing wrong' with his heart.
Rush Limbaugh said Friday that doctors 'found absolutely nothing wrong' with his heart.

(CNN) – Tests that were performed on Rush Limbaugh after he was admitted to a Hawaii hospital for chest pains "found absolutely nothing wrong," the conservative talk show host said Friday.

"It was a blessing," Limbaugh told reporters at The Queen's Medical Center where he was admitted Wednesday.

Doctors gave Limbaugh an angiogram Thursday that revealed no evidence of arterial or coronary disease, he said. The cause of his pain - which he called "very real" - has not been determined.

    Thank God Rush has declared that there is nothing wrong with our health care system. I suppose that means that whenever your average Joe, insured or uninsured, has severe indigestion, he can go to the hospital for three days of TLC.

    I'm so sorry that he'll recover. I guess it just goes to show you that years of being a drug addict and denying it, and spewing hateful, deceitful venom don't necessarily add up to a coronary... but then again this slimy piece of crap would need to actually have a heart to have a heart attack.

    Apparently, if you're a millionaire, the healthcare system works, and it doesn't need fixing!

    Oh there appears to be something wrong with his heart, head and mouth regardless of medical reports- just listen to his show.

    Maybe all the people sticking pins in their Rush Limbaugh voodoo dolls has something to do with this.

    I call this a political ploy! Of course he has great health care hes flipping rich. He is nothing like the average american citizen who runs the risk of getting layed off from a job or if his health care wont pay for something he can just pay for it himself. This man has no heart which is why they couldnt find anything wrong with it. If this wasnt a ploy then why inflict politics in it at all....

    See I told you he was going to be alright. I knew it wasn't his heart. Because he doesn't have one. Just kidding folks. But I knew Rush would get the best of care. I worry about the average hard working person who can't afford great health insurance. Who have no health insurance, and when they have chest pains most of the time they ignore them.

    Duh? This was done to up sage the President and his family who just happen to be on holiday in Hawaii. Idiotbaugh cannot stand having this Black President get more Media coverage than him. He faked chest pain just to get into the news and I'm sure getting his hand on more pain medication played a part. Idiotbaugh is a crack head, drug addicted Moron.

    There is a million zingers that could be used here but Limbaugh will get whats coming to him when he meets his maker. It is ironic how so many like him, Palin,Hannity, Beck etc can make millions off of fear, hate, ignorance and lies to the public. The most ironic part is that it is the public that make them rich for doing nothing of importance. Not one of the mentioned has done anything to make a positive mark in history or for mankind, yet they live very rich in the material world.They get rich off their foul and develish words. Happy New Year everyone !

    Troubling news. This could be the greatest blow to the conservative movement since Ann Coulter announced that she had a penis.
