I used to tune into him in the late 90’s on AFN just to keep up with the latest RW talking points.
Remember those halcyon days under Clinton when the US government was actually running a budget surplus?
I recall Rush coming on and saying that it was “immoral” for the US government to take more from us than it needed to operate.
Only thing I can give him any credit for: he was one of the first to admit that the attempt to convict Clinton had failed and it was time to call it off. I even sent an e-mail to my (Republican) Arizona congressman quoting that statement.
