Skip to comments.Are Hannity, Rush, and the big talkers playing us for $$$? (vanity)

Do you ever get the feeling that Rush and Hannity don't really care who wins, just as long as their dollars keep rolling in from us tea party saps. Besides Mark Levin, what prominent talker has gone out on a limb and endorsed true conservative candidates? Everyday we have to here Hannity interview the John McCains of the world. If he truly believed in the conservative movement, wouldn't he be out there trumpeting Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg like Levin is?
As for Rush, he is more interested in commercializing the tea party movement with his "Two if by tea" than promoting it.
Besides Mark Levin, they're all sellouts just like the Republican leadership...looking out for their own career over the well being of the country.
Eric Cantor with his support of Richard Lugar and Adam Kinzinger in their primaries is consolidating moderate, establishment support behind his ambition to be speaker some day. But Hannity is more interested in a softball interview with him than evicerating him for his actions.
There are very few leaders in our movement.
Yes. Which is why I quit listening to them years ago.
“Are Hannity, Rush, and the big talkers playing us for $$$?”
And exactly what money have they taken from you? And if you don’t like them don’t listen to them.
I find “purity” tests such as yours totally disgusting and divisive. Rush and Hannity are two of the biggest voices we have and you are ready to throw them overboard because they don’t meet your purity test?
In your conservative world, the population would be 1 - you.
Is that you Eric Cantor?
We stopped listening to Rush long ago, as he bumped bellies with those who rolled out the red carpet for tens of millions of illegals, during war time, as he babbled about feminist and golf.
It became unbearable.
Are you attacking us or making a point?
Rush readily admits it’s a business for him. Though...it’s really in all of their best interests for Democrats to win, because they make the big money when people are unhappy with the current leadership. If Democrats win, people become dissatisfied with Democrats/liberals and tune in to conservative (or Republican) broadcasting.
Levin endorses Mittens now, so does Newt and Sarah.
Not Limbaugh. Not Levine. Hannity is a slug, dont listen anymore.
I think you are just over thinking it.
Hannity is like listening to a political radio Disney.
Rush became so rich, he became completely detached and isolated from the real world. His jet orbits in lofty circles.
“Are you attacking us or making a point?”
I also wonder.
I do not know why he addressed his post to us.
“I need to get me some! Or send some as gifts!”
Ohhhh...you are welcome to put me on your gift list, haha.
I would love to try it, but I can not afford the FedEx
to the Philippines.
No I wasn’t attacking you, just the poster of the vanity, and making the points that:
a. you would be in small company if your purity test is so narrow that you would exclude Rush and Hannity
b. nobody is putting a gun to his head forcing him to listen to them, so his accusation about them taking his $$$ smacks more of a liberal than the conservative he claims to be
BTW, I agree with your comment about Rush.
Just look at Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Beck, Medved, Hewitt, Prager, Miller, Gibson, Levin, Ingraham, Boortz, Bennett, Liddy, Bruce, Elder, Hedgecock, Gallager, Larsen, Humphries, Kilmeade, Sciff, Parshall, Doyle, Sullivan, Carr, Quinn and Rose, Belling, Davis, Thompson, Pagliarulo, Garrison, Mancow, McConnell, Crowley, Grant, Redding, Cosby, Schlafly, Loesch, Sliwa, Dr. Albrecht, Erickson, Giordano, Sekulow, Severin, Stock, Thomas, Slade, Lawson, Valentine, Peterson, Are, Parshall, Zoller, Manders, Mckay, Belfrage, Donahue, Reagan, Merlino, Carroll, Douglas, Rydell, and Siegel. All are oars in the conservative waters. Some are minor players who work to earn a modest living while putting out the good faith to those who care to listen. Some reach huge markets who become blowtorches for the message of conservativism. We are fortunate to have all of them.
I’d say man up and order a case but I peeked at your profile. So woman up - you can handle it! Its great tea - I would normally order unsweetened tea with a couple of lemon slices but of the two cases we got I think I had three bottles (wife and son wiped out the rest), sweetened and raspberry - they were delicious and I think designed to be strong enough to put on ice and still have a good tea flavor.
Please order some so Rush doesn’t go bankrupt allowing Obummer to be re-elected and the good ‘ol US of A ending up as a socialist disaster. Thanks. Think I’ll order some myself. ;-)
Thanks for respondin, aquila48. I agree with your points 100%.
Yes, Rush and others like him are risking everything in the new world we’re living in.
I’m sure we Freepers are on a list somewhere.
LOL Wasn’t it Maxine Waters who called Rush by that name?
Dat’s one ugly creature.
and Mark Steyn when filling in for Rush ... ;-)
Maybe its you that is the problem. Maybe it is insane to NOT got for the obama block...which is a vote for anyone but obama.
“Yes, Rush and others like him are risking everything in the new world were living in.”
I have no doubt that public enemy number 1 for the libs and the socialists is Rush. If they ever succeed in getting rid of him they would celebrate and gloat for months... and we would lose the most potent voice for the conservative cause. Remember how hard they tried to do just that with the Fluke affair?
As for Hannity, although he’s not on a par with Rush when it comes to incisive political analysis, devastating humor and parodies, and communication skills, he plays an important role as a bulldog who is not afraid to take liberals head on and expose them. He was by far the the most relentless pursuer and exposer of Obama’s radicalism and his connections to Wright, Flager, and Aires.
And Levin also plays an important role in educating people about the founding principles of this country and why they work.
And many of the other conservative talk show host also make their contribution and we need all of them.
