After Inciting Death Threats Against Rush Limbaugh, Democrats Now Tie Him to Romney

I guess they want to kill the Romney campaign like they want to kill Limbaugh.

Talk about overplaying their hand.

Democrats are seeking to turn the recent controversy over Rush Limbaugh into a problem for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, with one House Democrat suggesting this week that Romney is at fault for Limbaugh’s ability to stay on the air.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) said it is “unquestionably” fair to tie Limbaugh to the GOP candidates, especially Romney.

“The fact is, Bain Capital owns Clear Channel, he’s got a conflict of interest, and you can’t have a leader like that,” he told Current TV’s “The Young Turks” on Tuesday night.

Bain Capital, the private-equity firm Romney co-founded in 1984, acquired Clear Channel, which hosts Limbaugh’s syndicated show, in 2008.

Democrats have pushed hard to label Limbaugh, a very popular conservative talk radio host, a voice for the Republican party after he made controversial remarks about a Georgetown University law student who testified for a Democratic hearing.

In no small irony, these idiotic comment were uttered on an obscure cable television show on a network owned in part by Democrat Al  Gore.

Every year we go through this silliness with Limbaugh and he comes back stronger every time. You’d think these idiots would learn to stop opening the door into their faces.

    You have a strange and extra-legal definition of the word “incite.”

    But hey, never let it be said that conservatives let facts get in the way of playing the victim card.

    Liberals/Democrats never let anything get in the way of playing the victim card…the race card…the gender card…the class warfare card…the “Republicans want to beat old people senseless and leave them for dead in the streets” card…and, well you get the idea.

    Calling for his murder is not “incitement”?

    Somehow, I don’t think you’d be that tolerant of similar comments targeted towards, say, Algore.
