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.

    What a joke why have a press conference? He never graduated from a college so why do people think he is smart? He is a joke he wants America to fail. He is a fat pig with to much money and a drug addict that has a eating problem thank you

    Rush may believe that he didn't receive any special treatment. However, to assert positively that this is so, he would need some knowledge of what ordinary treatment is received by others; particularly those less privileged than he.

    There's nothing wrong with his heart, because he has none.

    How many bottles of Vicodin does it take to cause heart palpitations?

    I sincerely think that this was a result of his use of oxycontin. I can't say for certain because I do not know his history except to say that he looks slightly obese and displays type A personality on air. I hope that he and the media machine are being completely honest about it.

    the fault isn't with his heart ... it's with his head. and the way he thinks.

    It seems ironic that LIMBAUGH was admitted to the ame hospital that President OBAMA was born in. It is also strange that LIMBAUGH and PALIN was in Hiwaii at the same as the president. What hateful evil act were they up to?

    I guess I'm just surprised to find out that he has a heart.

    More articles for the liberal hate machine. Hate, intolerance and fear appears to be their only methods anymore. Perhaps one day, civil and constructive dialog will be the result, but I'll not take that bet any time soon.

  17. Great!

    Carry on, Rush! We need you.

    I suspect it was that exotic food he ate in that foreign country of Hawaii; you know, the one where Obama was born.

    So it is all in his mind? Is that where something is wrong?

    To all the liberal haters out there, see you at the end of next year, licking your wounds as we wipe the slate clear of your America hating liberal politicians. 2010 is the year America removes the vermin that have been occupying the Capitol since 2006.

    The doctors may not can find anything but there is a lot that is seriously wrong with this person...

    I suspect his pain had something to do with a lack of painkillers.

    No surprises he doesn't have one.

    Rush, in order to have a heart problem, you have to have a heart first.
