How in the world has Rush Limbaugh versus President Obama become such a huge story in this nation? With America on the 'edge of the abyss' and so many major catastrophes threatening to take America out the back door, how is Rush challenging Obama to a debate even relevant?

For most voters in middle America, the petty and foolish 'jaw jacking' between the Obama White House and the Rush Limbaugh daily radio show... is both ridiculous and irrelevant in comparison to what is important in our lives and to our survival.

Most of us living in the nation's bread basket states don't have time for these tit-for-tat-school-boy-taunts and male pissing-matches any longer. Not when breaking news reports indicate: 
South Korea and the US believe North Korea could be preparing to test-fire a long-range missile under the guise of a satellite launch. With tensions between the two Koreas extremely high, North Korea has warned that any attempt to shoot down a satellite it says it plans to launch will result in war.

That's WAR... Ladies and gentlemen!!! 

And other distressing news such as:

600,000+ Americans lost their jobs last month. The job picture is becoming so bleak that nearly 700 people applied for a single job as a school janitor recently in Ohio. People are out of work and the numbers are growing daily!!

Hmmm... while Rush Limbaugh is laughing all the way to the bank?!?!! 

And even more dire news that:
The U.S. stock market continues dropping like a rock. People are losing their shirts and their 401k values... their nest eggs are evaporating. The latest report that the Dow Jones is currently under 6700 points with no bottom in sight any time soon... is quite disturbing out here in America's heartland.
This is not fun or funny any longer, as Mr. Robert Gibbs jokingly said about the Rush-Obama-drama during a recent White House press briefing. 

We need for the President and his staffers to ignore Rush Limbaugh and stop elevating him to the level of the prestige the office of the President represents. 

We need President Obama to order Tim Geithner to cease with the procrastinating mumbo-jumbo... and present a comprehensive plan to the American people on how this Administration is going to get the U.S. economic bus out of the ditch. Remember...It's the ECONOMY STUPID...

Now is 'not' really a good time for this Administration to open up the polarizing stem cell research debate in this country... or crack open the pork versus no-pork can-of-worms as was demonstrated in Congress last week. Americans are broke, afraid, and hurting... and these hot-button issues will further inflame an already angry nation, causing further division and possible civil unrest.

Rush Limbaugh is a distraction! What we need are bi-partisan leaders who will make tough decisions and get this country back on track.
