Tests reveal 'nothing wrong' with Limbaugh's heart

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.

    The man's purpose in life is to make money creating hate in the world. I despise him and everything he has contributed to make people hate one another. He is no better, in fact deceivingly worse, than any Islamic terrorist in the world. He has done more with his hate-mongering to hurt this country than any terrorist has ever done. He is not an example of a good American. In fact, he is the opposite. He is treasonous.

    It's not surprising that there is nothing wrong with his heart. It's amazing that he has one at all.

    If it's not his heart then definitely it is his brains. Too many drugs and sins.

    and price tag for hospital stay??? did any reporters ask to see a copy of his bill?

    The health care debate is not about incompetent doctors; it's about ordinary citizens not being able to afford a 3-day hospital stay.

    Given a second chance, let's see what he does with it.

    This column should have been labeled "Rush Limbaugh–confirmed he does have a heart" because most of us struggling middle class Americans feel that he does not.

    His comment about how great the American health care system is showed some really shallow thinking. How can he judge the entire system by his experiences with one facility? Besides it's not the ability of the health care system that is in question so much as it the lack of access for so many people. Doesn't he realize that his millions do not make him an average consumer? Also maybe there really is something wrong with his heart and the tests didn't find it. That happens to a lot of people.

    If I were this guy's pastor, I would have real difficulty with this guy's medical prognosis. Morally, I have no clue where to begin with such a stubborn, short-sighted guy. Maybe there's a snake-biter church home for him down the road somewhere?

    Perhaps it was psychosomatic. After 2 decades of lying for profit, maybe the guilt finally caught up to him and played to his unspoken knowledge that he should be rightfully punished.

    Of course, this assumes that Limbaugh actually has a conscience, which is doubtful. Would it be tasteless to wish him more of the same pain in perpetuity, given that there's apparently no damage?

    Negative, not only is there something terribly wrong with his heart, but also his head. How can he live with himself?

    I didn't know he even had a heart. You could have fooled me.

    Well, I would say there are many things wrong with Limbaugh's heart. Nothing physical though.

    No one says there's anything wrong with American healthcare! The problem is paying for it.
