LOL!! You're really reaching now... by your logic, I guess I'm a McCain supporter for life.. since, he was my "favorite" over Obama..
Ewww... I think I just threw up a little just typing that.
It was Rush’s transcript, not analysis.
The transcript is of Rush gutting Newt with what Rush knew was a lie, and man was he in our face and arrogant that day, while doing it.
I was pointing out that in a race of three, you liked the radically left wing Romney in 2008.
Today, you are going after Newt, when he is the only opposition to Romney.
I don’t think that your are passionate about Romney this time, but I do think that you are at the very least, indifferent to him beating Gingrich.
ok... right. Well, that is YOUR opinion. I don’t agree.
I don’t see that as Rush “gutting Newt”... I see it as Rush talking about the news of the day, and expressing SOME doubts about it.
But, all in all... that IS what Newt was saying in that speech. Maybe, it’s Newt you should be upset with??
Bed-time for me... carry on with your Rush-bashing.
Rush was forced to admit it was a pile of Bull the next day, a fact that he already knew, but he used it to kill Newt anyway.
You haven’t cleared up whether 1989 was when you became a Rush listener, you said it was, and then denied it later, claiming to have started before he went national, before he left Sacramento.
You are ASSUMING that Rush knew it was "Bull"... and, used it anyway. You can believe that if you want... I don't agree.
You havent cleared up whether 1989 was when you became a Rush listener, you said it was, and then denied it later, claiming to have started before he went national, before he left Sacramento
Cleared up? I didn't realize this was such a controversy.
Here are my "Rush Credentials":-)
I first started listening to Rush sometime in August of 1988 (not '89) in Houston.. on 700 KSEV radio.
The very first thing I heard when I tuned in was: Andy Williams singing 'Born Free'... the theme for Animal Rights updates. I thought it was hilarious, and was immediately hooked.
I've never stopped listening.
I was a charter subscriber for the newsletter, own first printings of both books, and have been a subscriber or Rush 24 since the first day it was offered.
When I lived in Louisiana, I used to join friends in a RUSH ROOM at a local BBQ spot. While we ate, the restaraunt owner played Rush loudly on the radio. Since I WORK during the day... I generally only get to hear the first hour. Sometimes, when news is particularly interesting, I'll catch the other hours later, on the internet.
I DO travel quite a bit... and, when I'm on the road, I ALWAYS listen to whole show in the evenings. Especially when I'm overseas...
I know Rush. I GET Rush... When people ask me if I "like Rush Limbaugh"... I tell them : "No, I AM Rush Limbaugh.. only better looking and without the money". :-)
I don't ALWAYS agree with Rush...but, it's a rare day when I don't. And, it's usually more of a tactical thing, rather than substance.
I think Rush likes Newt Gingrich.... quite a lot. But, he's still going to speak about whatever the "news of the day is"... whether it's good, or bad for Newt.
These hosts know their listeners are not stupid. But again I don't remember much mention of this issue at all, apart from on Michael Savage's show.
If I am wrong I thank people for corrections in advance.
You created the confusion about when you started listening to Rush. Rush knew that Speaker Newt was not anti-Reagan, all conservatives know that, and so should anyone else who lived during the 1980s and 1990s.
See post 100, when he mocked his audience, knowing that they were raving at his disgusting hit on Newt.
Birthers, and the birther arguments are not welcome on his show.
Well... I hope that's all cleared up. What I was saying was.... YOU couldn't have been listening longer unless YOU lived in Sacramento. I've been listening for as long as Rush has been heard, nationally. My bad for getting the year confused... I was in the middle of a plant startup then... working 320 hours a month for several months in a row. It's all kind of a blur.
See post 100, when he mocked his audience
I've see post 100 several times now... I HEARD Rush saying it when he did. I've even gone back and listened to again. I just don't see it as anything other than "Normal" Rush style..
Rush Limbaugh right now is making the case that it’s ok to lie about your opponent by bring in Jefferson and Adams.
Stating that we are whiner for complaining about it.
JUST COME OUT AND ENDORSE ROMNEY RUSTY.
See post 112, hours before voting starts in the primary that could stop Romney, and it is clear that Newt will not be getting any momentum from Rush.
What a bizarre, useless, irrelevant, first hour for the day before such a monumental conservative election, but it keeps him from helping Newt.
Newt HAS BEEN whining about it... for the past two days. And, it's NOT HELPING him.
Rush is going Newt a favor by trying to re-direct him toward speaking PASSIONATELY about conservatism... not whining about lying politicians. it's not attractive
You guys are WAYYY to sensitive....
Now Rush is linking Romney to the re-districting effort to write out Allen West.
Is that YOUR idea of a way to endorse Willard?
Some moron a few days ago was claiming that Rush, Sean, and Mark Levin were all supporting Romney because of Bain Capital owning a (minority) share of Clear Channel. Rush and Mark have been extremely hard on Romney. These people claiming a Bain/Clear Channel conspiracy are delusional.
Yes, Rush cultist, Rush’s using Jefferson and Adams to justify Romney’s and the GOP-Es attacks on Gingrich is just Rush playing chess...lol.
Coming out and endorsing Myths and the E’s coordinated attacks IS and endorsement of Romney.
They’ve eliminated Palin and Cain and wow they are attempting to take out Newt for the second time.
Tools will be tools. Rush is a tool.
Well... on THAT much, I think we agree! ;-)
That’s cute, but you are the one who thinks there is no difference between Romney and Gingrich.
KUDOS Danae! You are so right.
I hear considerable conservative blustering about Obama’s philosophies, which are unAmerican but never really referenced as such. Newt talks about Saul Alinsky, Beck discusses socialism, and Rush and Hannity slather it on with similar oblique references.
But none of them are willing to address the root issue - WHY Obama was not raised to appreciate American culture, but rather to rebel and fight against it. It is exactly this kind of foreign influence which the Framers intended to preclude from the US Presidency by requiring “natural born Citizen” status.
But the national media, even the conservative wing of that industry, finds the subject taboo, even to the point of ignoring the fact that, as of 01/26/2012, a state court in Georgia has finally accepted testimony and evidence in a legitimate complaint that Barack Obama is Constitutionally ineligible to serve as POTUS.
This event should have opened up a full discussion of the issue in the media, but instead we find a virtual syndicated news blackout. Even Drudge only carried a small blurb about it for a couple of hours, then - poof! - gone. Someone mentioned Obama’s Indonesian upbringing on Hannity recently and he shut it down to avoid “...getting me in trouble.”
My belief is that a treacherous deal was struck when then-Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton signed off on Senate Resolution 511, a non-binding agreement accepting John McCain as a natural born citizen, even though he was not born on US soil, because his parents (plural) were US citizens upon his birth. From that moment on, I believe the topic of Obama’s illegitimacy was off limits.
What’s the down side of breeching that contract at this point? It must be formidable to keep this issue in check for so long.
What’s the downside of keeping the agreement? It seems to me that Republicans and Democrats have conspired in this matter to the ruination of the Constitution, no less.
What could be worse than both major parties in cooperation against the US Constitution? This presents awesome challenges and responsibility incumbent on we citizens to overthrow this concerted attack on the Supreme Law of our land.
I wonder: Are we up to it?
“What could be worse than both major parties in cooperation against the US Constitution? This presents awesome challenges and responsibility incumbent on we citizens to overthrow this concerted attack on the Supreme Law of our land.”
I wonder the same thing often. I believe that both parties are now deliberately covering this up. The GOP knew about it before Obama was elected but could not do diddly about it because McCain had the same problem. So they screwed us. They are still screwing us, only now we do not have the constitution to protect us. The only hope I see is a massive number of citizens DEMANDING redress for this wrong, and I don’t see that happening either. Not enough people know or seem to care. Or they have bought into the Alynski BS and the mockery of the Birth Certificate - which was irrelevant from the get go.
We can’t give up though. I pray that Georgia is the crack in this seal of doom.
“Do people listen to talk radio?”
Is that a serious question?
Right, I missed it deliberately to piss you off.
Sheesh, come up with a cogent argument instead of throwing insults will you.
You must have missed my posting updates...
There IS a difference between Romney and Newt.
Newt HAS called himself a “progressive”.... That terminology sickens me. But, Newt also has a RECORD of controlling government spending.. and, of being willing to take the heat for it.
Both Romney and Newt have some culpability on supporting government run health care. But, Newt at least now says it’s a bad idea. Romney still thinks what he did in Mass was a good thing.
So... I’ll take Newt.
None of them want to talk about it. All of them change the subject faster than light. Even THEY mock it, either being deliberately stupid, or honestly ignorant.... which it is I am not sure.
Yes. They are paid entertainers and should not be taken seriously. I could really care less about what they blather about on talk radio.
Well, I sure would like to hear Hannity describe racism for what it is. A racist is a person who uses race as a means to an end. That goes for Obama, Michelle, Rev Wright, the entire Congressional Black Caucus, as well as other “Community leaders” like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson et al.
I am SICK of seeing the black community used and abused by these racists who are part of the system which is keeping them poor and dependent.
Ugh. Its enough to drive one to despair.
You have a point about the entertainment bit. I agree.
Yet they pose as being members of the conservative constitutional movement. If they aren’t then we should give them no heed at all. That was sort of the point of my opus for what ever it’s worth.
Blang for later ....................................... FRegards
THanks for all your hard work. You are a true Patriot!
Thanks Godebert! DO NOT GIVE UP THE SHIP!!!
We cannot give up the fight!
You betcha Gonzo!
Have a great evening!
Yup, that is my experience when listening also. Although now I listen much less, because I just don’t trust the hosts the way I used to.
I just remembered that Peter Boyles at KHOW is a birther. I listened to his show this morning, he’s up to speed. He’s having Corsi on tomorrow.
I sent him an email that he read on air, asking if the big talkers have been threatened. He said he can’t speak for them.
RIGHT ON DUDE!!!!!!
