McCain: Listening to Limbaugh is Masochistic
Bizblogger ^ | 02/02/08 | Richie Rich

Posted on 02/02/2008 3:58:16 PM PST by RichieRich1

John McCain says he does not listen to Rush Limbaugh and does not expect his endorsement. But here is McCain's quote of the day that probably won't endear him to many conservatives:

"I don't listen to him [Rush] very much. There's a certain trace of masochism in my family, but not that deep."

Rush is right.

McCain is a loon.

It’s abundantly clear that MCain doesn’t want to hear the opinions or advice of conservatives.

Now if the opinion in question comes from one of his Dhimmiqrat buddies across the Senate aisle, well, now that’s a bit different.

The fight between McCain and Rush marches on.

McCain trumped Rush by taking Florida and winning round one.

Be fun to see what happens next.

Is this the same McCain who is planning to reach out to conservatives?

Look, if Rush had put out half the effort in promoting Fred Thompson’s campaign, as he is now employing to trash McCain’s campaign, conservatives might have a reliable and viable conservative to support. Instead of three wannabe’s who don’t deserve to represent the GOP as its nominee. Not a conservative in the bunch.

OK, Rush, I hope you’re ready to endorse Romney on Monday.

He convinced himself long ago that he was the smartest man on earth. That is the bases of his delusion.

It doesn’t matter where on the political and social spectrum you fall in particular, if you are a Freeper with a FreeRepublic sign up date prior to Feb 1st, 2000, John McCain actively despises you, your values, your family, your religion and your very existence. He has been actively attacking the foundation reasons and common causes we formed this online community around, and he does so with malice and vigor every day he gets out of bed.

John McCain is a dangerous man.

This is all very sad.

McCain is really making friends these days with the base. I am starting to see the wisdom in Ann Coulter’s comment about voting for Hillary. It isn’t to vote for her, it’s to wake up the base.

Voting for McCain is masochistic!

McCain has a long list of NEGATIVES:
Poking Bush & Conservatives in the eye for his own benefit.
Calling those opposing his so called ‘immigration reform’ plan “racist”.
Ignorant Energy policy and belief in Global Warming,
Continually conceding to liberal criticism of conservative policies by accepting bumper sticker logic.
No depth of understanding on critical issues.
‘Gang of 14’ giving up on prohibiting filibuster of Judicial nominees.
He DOES NOT believe in Judicial restraint.
Handcuffing the military in the execution of their duties.
Naïve foreign policy objectives.
Lack of support for Israel.
Support for Embryonic Stem Cell research, when the scientific evidence is clear that no positive medical benefit is possible.

He is dangerous. He has no concept of the ideals of constitutional governance, federalism, or conservatism. He speaks the looney language of leftists. Another Bush like presidency is in the works.

To be fair Rush hammers McCain alot. Why would McCain want to listen to a guy beat up on him daily.

I agree with Rush when he does it though.

That is why he is compared to Captain Queeq of the “Kane Mutany” fame.
