Skip to comments.Forget Rush; Mitt Romney is quietly showing leadership (BARF ALERT)
Posted on 03/05/2009 5:23:07 AM PST by CASchack
It's been a win-win the past few days for Democratic and Republican loyalists, but what about the rest of us?
You know. Americans who either don't think that (a) spending nonexistent trillions is quite the way to proceed in an economic crisis, or that (b) Rush Limbaugh is the messiah.
Oh wait, that's right, Barack Obama is the messiah. I get confused sometimes, what with so much deification going on. Limbaugh's 85-minute speech at last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference, frequently interrupted by grateful applause from a slightly star-struck audience, was, dare we say it, Obama- esque.
But where there's deification, there's bound to be demonization. Thus, Rush told conferees that Obama, in essence, is Stalin. And Obama, via chief commando Rahm Emanuel, anointed Limbaugh as leader of the GOP, calling him the "voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party."
Talk about damning with praise.
El Rushbo can't have minded much, despite his protestations that he was being manipulated and maligned by the White House to distract Americans from the "plunging economy." What could be better for a talking head than to be chosen by a president as his worthy adversary?
At least finally both sides certainly should agree on one thing: The Fairness Doctrine is a terrible idea! Who wants fair and politically balanced commentary on the airwaves when being "unfair" is keeping both armies in their Humvees?
The body politic, meanwhile, resembles a tempest-tossed ocean liner on which passengers scurry across the deck as the ship pitches. On one side is the president, promising to build a new $3.6 trillion ark. On the other is El Rushbo, clutching the conservative tablature: Thou shalt not raise taxes.

K Parker= barf alert tag every time
Very revealing when RINO liberal slime like Parker, who rely on slander and character assasination, praise Romney...
Remember it was Parker who urged McCain to dump Palin from the ticket... we can see where this sh!t is coming from.
If I were ever inclined to be positive about Romney, this just blew it. Kathleen Parker’s support means he must be pro-abortion, no matter what he says.
Romney is neither showing leadership nor being quiet.
Uh, Kathleen,... You should replay your recording of the speech, (assuming you actually watched it in the first place). They were applauding what Rush was saying, not the man himself.
No way would I ever vote fro Romney.
Kathleen parker is an ass. I would never listen to/read her crap ever again.
What, you mean the media whore who trashed Palin turns out to be a Romney supporter? Shocking!
I soured on Romney during the Palin attacks. This just confirms my decision. Romney had his chance and showed that he can't win or unite conservatives. Time for him to go search for an Olympic committee to chair.
Smiling carpetbagger and chameleon RINO-Mitt ("the Myth") Romney installs
BOTH socialized medicine and gay marriage which his liberal followers purport "build and repair" America.
More like destroy and break. There is no honor to a "victory" based on the character assasination and bullying of an innocent mom and her children.
Romney needs to go away.
Here are reasons I will NEVER vote for Romney:
1. He is a gun-banner. He signed 2nd Amendment restrictions in Mass.
2. He signed socialized medicine into law in Mass. Do we not think he would do the same to the country?
3. He approved (tacitly or not) of gay marriage in Mass., and thus apparently does not know the true definition of “marriage”.
4. He attracts people who virulently oppose Gov. Sarah, whom I love and respect, because we come from a similar background, and because of her policies.
5. K. Parker has just endorsed Romney.
Notice that “he’s a Mormon” isn’t on the list? Yep, that’s right. Give me a Conservative Mormon, and I’ll vote for him. But Romney ain’t conservative. Not by a long shot. He’s another RINO.
He could retire to private life with his nice family and live happily ever after.
6. He is a liar and opportunist of highest order.
taking care of his wife is not on Romney’s ‘front burner’.
I guess not.
7. He and his minions regularly slander Ronald Reagan.
8. He wants to bring gays into the military and ENDA to the rest of the country.
9. He can’t tell the difference between pro-life and pro-abortion.
