Hawaii - Conservative radio talk host Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Honolulu hospital on Wednesday afternoon with chest pains, sources told KITV.

Paramedics responded to the call at 2:41 p.m. at the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Limbaugh, 58, suffered from chest pains, sources said. Limbaugh was sitting in a chair in his ninth-floor hotel room at the Kahala when emergency crews arrived, sources said. He told medical crews that he was taking medication for a back problem, sources said.

Paramedics treated him and took him to Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition. He will not be released from the hospital on Wednesday night, sources said.

He was seen golfing at Waialae Country Club earlier this week. The country club is next to the Kahala Hotel and Resort.

Officials with the Rush Limbaugh Program released a statement Wednesday night.

“Rush was admitted to and is resting comfortably in a Honolulu hospital today, after suffering chest pains. Rush appreciates your prayers and well wishes, and he will keep you updated via RushLimbaugh.com.”

The radio show host had been in the islands during the holidays. Coincidentally, his visit comes at a time when two of the nation’s most powerful Democrats, President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are also staying in Hawaii.

In 2001, Limbaugh received a cochlear implant after he suddenly lost hearing due to autoimmune inner ear disease. Limbaugh underwent treatment in 2003 for an addiction to prescription painkillers, including Lorcet, Norco and hydrocodone.

According to Wikipedia, his name is Rush Hudson (III) ben Rush Hudson (Jr). We daven for goyim by their father's names. I had thought that he was named Rush for his dad Russell but instead of calling him Russell Jr. they called him Rush, but apparently wiki has the story differently.

Who cares??? He won't get to poison all those naive brains in the chasidishe community! Trust me, he HATES people like you. People who suck the government dry with every possible program out there. You are too naive to realize that you are hardly on the same page as him. You sit there and nod your head with agreement to everything he's got to say, yet you actually do the exact opposite. So you're either incredibly naive or a good ole hypocrite!

Yo can call Rush many things, but not dumb. I do not believe he is a racist either. When he speaks his mind it is called inciting hatred? Hatred of what? Communism? People should hate communism! What other hatred is he inciting? Just because Obama is a left wing radical communist and Rush exposes him doesn't mean he is a racist!

Rush is one of the most intelligent people you would come across. He has a terrific command of the English language, unprecedented charisma and unparallelled sense of humor.

On top of it he is a friend of Jews and Israel! Proven 1000 times! He is worth to daven for!

it's funny how everyone seems to have forgotten that Rush was one of the biggest supporters ofthe movie the passion of the C----, which was just a modern packaging of thousand year old Christian anti-semitic rant about jews being JC killers, and he supported the arch anti-semite mel gibson, until gibson got drunk and publicly spewed his venom.
But refuah shleimah anyway, big guy.

You are correct but just remember it is CONSERVATIVE RADIO that CONSTANTLY defends EY against all left, liberal, and evil. Rush went to EY many years ago with Rabbi N. Segal and saw first hand what they go thru there. He came back even more committed to defending EY at every opportunity.

I like the man, though he is a showman, and some things he says are hyped up a bit.

I also think he was misquoted. I think he said the administration is a pain in the back for which I am taking pain meds.
RUSH watch those meds. Take a lesson from Michael Jackson. Unlike Michael you are not replaceable.
And keep away from Hawaii, it is dangerous to be so close to your adversary.

I enjoyed listening to Rush long ago, but eventually got tired of his ranting and raving. I agree with most of his opinions, but when he started out, he had a sense of humor. Now all he does is blame the world's problems on the Clintons. The worst thing is, and my feelings are bolstered by the above comments, is that the frum community have become his chasidim, quoting him all day without thinking for themselves. Nevertheless, of course, I wish him well.

So now being pro-Israel, pro-Jew, and anti-abortion is the new definition of a "racist"- you must be insane or Not Jewish. You probably listen to Janet Napolitano and think that our returning vets are terrorists. You should really be ashamed of your foul mouth and sick ideas. Please get Help.

Hate hearing the diatribe against Rush, especially from frum people who should know better. Who should we trust in the media - Matthews, Friedman,Dowd,Olbermann, Maddow,Cohen, Krugman, Klein, Hennison, Rich,Helen Thomas,Page, Herbert, Alter,Clift. NY Times, Wash Post, LA Times, Newsweek, TIME, Huffington Post, the three major TV networks?
Rush is a mensch who is extremely bright and manages to be entertaining. He sees events before they happen and peels away the nonsense from the foolish media spin of liberal politicians. I listen to him daily and I'm astounded at how much I've learned.
The silliness and attempts to be clever here are misguided, insipid, and in horrible taste.

 Dec 31, 2009 at 09:45 AM AP Says:

I think the chest pains was a conspiracy conducted by the liberal obama administration. Proof being, that it happened to Rush and not one, I repeat, not one leftist media talk show host. This is absurd, and I encourage everybody to talk to your elected official that represents you. Your voice must be heard. Let them know that you will not take this sitting down.

Obama's late mother's name was Dr. Stanley Ann Dunham. Here story is rather amazing; you should type her name into Google or Yahoo! and read about her. It is very inspiring. And her professional work, begun later in life, is very pertinent to economic development in third world countries.

Not all Conservative pundits are pro-Israel. Patrick Buchanan is an anti-Semitic rasha who blasts Israel and defends ex-Nazis. The late Robert Novak was an anti-Israel apostate.

I hope Mr. Limbaugh has a speedy recovery. But while he is no anti-Semite and has supported Israel consistently, neither his personal life nor his radio program should be seen as models for Jewish conduct.

We should never wish pain on anyone just because they are controversial.

However, to those who think he is a great friend of the frum community, why not call up his show and tell him how the frum community lives a nearly 100% socialist lifestyle - most don't work (or have no education so they work for pennies), then take section 8, welfare, and food stamps from the government to support themselves. Then tell him you are a conservative. After 10 minutes of laughing at you and mocking you, he would organize a protest outside your house.

His support for E"Y has nothing to do with Jews. He's be perfectly happy to see all the Jews driven out and replaced with xians. He is no fan of Jews AT ALL.

And you base that on?? ALL OF IT!!! I dont see how we live "a nearly 100% socialist lifestyle."

As far as education, there is no guarantee an "education" will get you a job. Lots of college grads looking for work nowadays and how about those who dont work in the field of their degree??

I am going to indulge and speculate on Rush’s conditions this is what I think happened.
Rush had chest pain, when to the hospital which confirmed a heart attack was admitted to hospital within 72 hours they do an angiogram, where they discover blocked arteries he undergoes successful surgery either stent or bypass, otherwise he would already be out of the hospital.
