Rush: Sponsors 'Practically Begging to Come Back'

After national controversy over his calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and “prostitute,” radio giant Rush Limbaugh says he has brand-new sponsors lined up to advertise on his program, and some who had canceled are now asking to return.

“We have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks,” Limbaugh said this afternoon, adding he was not going to identify them today.

“Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return. We are being very careful about that. I’m not gonna give you any names here. One of them is practically begging to come back.”

There have been reports among some news agencies that at least 40 advertisers have abandoned Limbaugh’s top-rated program since the furor involving Sandra Fluke’s push for insurance-covered birth control erupted last week, but Limbaugh said those news outlets are not being honest.

“Because they lie, and because they don’t understand how it works,” he said. “Everything is fine on the business side. Everything is cool. There is not a thing to worry about. Whatever you’re seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect.”

    This democrat trumped up issue is purely a fluke. I say we all boycott those advertisers who dropped our Rush Kabob, and send an e-mail to Rush letting him know that we still back him. I think that I will take a cotton ball and glue little plastic eyes on it and send it to rush to let him know that he is a harmless fuzzball. The liberals fear Rush because they can't handel the Truth. They will do anything to silence TRUTH. We must do everything to preserve IT.

    • daves says:

      How can it possibly be a Democrat trumped up issue since Rush started it?

      • schnitzelschitzen says:

        It isn't so much what Rush said , but what the liberal democrats don't say when even worse statements about women are encouraged by their leadership. These liberals, who believe in a free ride in life, jump on the band wagon to destroy someone who constantly attacks them about their freeloading. The democrats who have a long list of things that they support, yet few to create a more fair and honest society, only fight to preserve their discolored view of America and continue to demand their right to a free ride at the expense of the work-a-day people. Abraham Lincoln gave his life to bring America together, the obama administration has created a division here in America that has never been whitnessed here in America even before the Civil War started. Liberals are more useless than a screen door on a submarine or a June Bug in December. I have nothing against June Bugs, just freeloaders and dirtbags.

    • Independant says:

      I would love to see the LIST! For 40 years I have botcott certain movies, TV shows, and products based on Anti-American Celebs. And that goes for my kids and teen age grandchildren.

  2. Axelrod: If Romney Can't Condemn Limbaugh, 'How Can He Stand Up To Ahmadinejad?'

    ahahahahaha. good point!

    • patriotrenegade says:

      hey jerk, axelrod is a CFR globalist traitor just like knewtieknewt and soros. traitors all. bama as a TC is the worst. brezhinski's slave boy. you are either ignorant, a traitor, or both. Which is it?

      • daves says:

        I think your attitude of calling people names just because they don't agree with you is far more traitorous.

    • BuddyH says:

      Yea, that is funny!

    • 2WarAbnVet says:

      Another Chicago thug speaks out.

    • vicki says:

      Maybe he thinks Rush was right. I admire him for not condeming Rush.

    • mary m says:

      why should he condem rush, the so called presedent didn't call pali ,or laura Ingrim after bill maher called those women worse words than what rush called her but he is right if she wants to sleep around and have us pay for it. they should be abstanant and she wouldn't have to worry about it. thats not our place to pay for their birth control. and obama didn't call those other women and appologize to them. and that crap that they are public figures is bull crap this puke women put her self in the public eye when volunteered to speak to the congress.So there you have it axelrod.

    • Cathy says:

      talk about hypocrisy !!! Like Obama stands up to Ahmadinejad! HA! The tyrant STOLE the election, people fled out of Iran,he killed his own people and Obama did nothing! He's down nothing about Iran in 3 years so now he's talking tough. It is too late.

  4. ruth says:

    Rush, you don't need any of those scumbag sponsors! They will need YOU before you EVER need them! Go Rush!

  5. gbandy says:

    The Left has used boycotts as a tool against the truth for years. As far as I am concerned any sponsor who drops Rush will also be boycotted by me. The little slut who must use taxpayer dollars to live her life of sexual freedom truly is the term.

    • John says:

      I don't know that " slut " is apropo. Some media have reported that Fluke is a lesbian. If this is true,why would a lesbian need access to birth control, free or not. "Slut " should be changed to " slurp."

  6. I'm an online publisher with over 200,000 readers. I unsubscribed from all my newsletter who promote the companies who stopped supporting Rush! Some were very upset, knowing I will indeed inform my readers as to what is happening – really!
    Hey, Rush – I'm with you, Babe!!

  7. Concerned American says:

    Rush, you have got our full support. Don't give in to the dems pressure

  8. Concerned American says:

    Let's boycut all the sponsors who dropped out of Rush's program.

  9. Concerned American says:

    You can find the names of these cos in the wsj

  10. Jon Golt says:

    A boycott on Rush? Wonder how the BOYCOTT is working for GM? Buying a lot of Volt's? Buying into the BS from the American Communist Party? Why did Bretheart die? Why is G Beck on his Own? And seems to be doing well? Why is Air America not on the Air? Why is ABC, CBS CNN, NBC running the lowest rating's of all so called New's show's? And why is FOX starting to lose there American Base? Ask the 1/2 white POS who is in the white house! Why are we (american's) Paying near $4.00 per GL and when "he" started Gas was $ 2 something? Why are we not Drilling in the gulf of Mexico? But gave money to the "oil Co's" of about every South American country? TO DRILL in the Same area's WE no-longer can? Boycott the Communist Party! Boycott the Democrat's!

    • easyme says:

      Jon your post is the answer,

    • MidniteDStroyer says:

      You might as well boycott Democracy in this country too…After all, this nation was NEVER meant to be a Democracy in the first place; the Founding Fathers knew Democracy for what it was & abhorred the idea of it. Any of OUR officers employed within OUR government who condone & support Democracy are in direct violation of Article4, Section 4 of the US Constitution. This is a REPUBLIC!

  11. Remington 870 says:

    Rush called that slut as he saw her, and when a Democrap wench wants to put her stuff out there in hopes of tricking the GOP into a social issue trap, there is going to be name calling. The loser coward sponsors jumped ship because they were afraid of Democrap whores, sluts and weiners. And Rush knew this Fluke woman was a Dem plant with one purpose…to draw attention to a non-existent issue.

    • Dianne says:

      I plan to boycott everyone who dropped (s) Rush, I have been boycotting McDonalds since 1974 for giving me cold fries I have a long memory and strong will. Love you Rush, love what you stand for.

  12. Jeff says:

    Limbaugh's loss of sponsors is having an impact, it is why he offered up his lame apology and still more advertisers are leaving his show. Funny, if they wnt back, why does the list of sponsors that won't advertise with the show continue to grow?

    Yep, Limbaugh stepped in it just like Beck. What are the chances of LImbaugh going the way of Beck?

    Oh the irony is almost to much to withstand…almost, but not really.

    • Sheila says:

      Too bad you libs don’t do the same thing to Bill Maher, Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, and the rest of the liberals who have sad worse things about Sarah Palin and other Conservative women!! Hypocrites!

    • Brian says:

      Best not be too smug on this topic with Rush. He doesn't need those sponsors who bolted like sheep at the first sign of heat afte he used an inappropriate choice of words (for which he sincerely apologized). Those sponsors include "Carbonite"- which by the way dropped about 12% of their stock's value the very next day after the worm heading up Carbonite announced he was pulling his ads from Rush's show. I'd be willing to bet he's now one of those 'begging' to come back as a sponsor with Rush's show. This is all much ado about nothing re: Rush's comment, and his comment pales in comparison with the really offensive comments made by several Democrat operatives with mind-numbing ignorance like Bill Maher- another despicable human being masquerading as a 'comedian'.

    • Jonathan Gartner says:

      No, he offered his apology because he realized that he was getting caught in the left wing arguement of womens rights. It had nothing to do with womens rights it has to do with religion . Obama like a slight of hand magician is creating a diversion to what it really going one. Rush went to say that no proof have been given and that much sex is silly to begin with. And Rush is right the girl has prostituted herself she has sold herself to the Demoncratic Party.

    • Jerry says:

      Jeff, you are one of Obama's useful idiots. What happened to make you hate this country so much? I'll put my money on Rush, he'll come out standing on his feet. You should be glad you live in a country that lets you speak your mind, unfortunately, that will end with a second term for the great pretender.

    • easyme says:

      Jeff are you getting your info from an obama news agency.or just making it up.

    • Jeff says:

      Ah yes, the defenders of Rush stand firm against honest criticism, facts, and questions about Limbaugh's future. There is a reason calls people like you, "dittoheads." He insults his listeners by calling them dittoheads, people who don't think, they just agree with what Limbaugh says unquestioningly as evidenced my the responses to the thread in general and to my post specifically.

      WND and Vision to America are not real news sources, they exist to foment conspiracy theorists wet dreams. And calling me names doesn't change the fact that the 30 some advertisers that have left aren't interested in going back. You should read the comments being made by the former advertisers.

      And LImbaugh's attack of Fluke had nothing to do with religion. It was because he is a misogynist, and has a ling career of attacking women.

  13. dandman says:

    Looking back to history, if Fluke's mother had bought into the BC issue, then she would a moot point indeed.

    Let's put in place a policy that only Democrat women can get free birth control and mandate that they all must use BC for the rest of their lives or face jail time for violating goverment policy. The whining problem will be solved for the next generation.

    • Antiliberal says:

      Now there's a policy we can all…get behind!
      We could call it the "Cabernet Bill: STOMP out liberal whiners in 3 terms or less"

  14. SEAN MURRY says:

    Rush told the truth every time someone tells thetruth the left goes into a fit.

  15. BigC says:

    Fluke's mother must be proud to have raised the poster-child for immoral SLUTS everywhere!!!!!!!

    • Ellen says:

      This slut Flake is a transgender liberal activist who is part of the homo-in-chief's regime. She wants your dollars for a gender change – the SLUT!

    • easyme says:

      Big C Fruit does not fall to for from the tree.I think obama and pelosi are mad as hell because their parents did not have an abortion.
