Just as people are buying guns before Obama and Congress voids the second amendment, they are listing to Rush before the first amendment is voided.

Newt said last week that Rush’s ratings were 25-50 million, I think they’re definitely on the higher side and not the 25 million stated.

Hehe. I knew this would happen. Idiot 'rats. Little weasel-peeps took on a man with a mic and a HUGE AUDIENCE. Bad idea.

Fat Bill Clinton had it closer when he whined and wet his pants about how Rush had three hours a day and he (the President) had no way to counter it! 'Rats are just pathetic. Dangerous and evil, but pathetic in their own sick way.

I think that fear of people actually listening to Rush is what drives Begala, BO, Rahm, Carville etc. This plan has backfired on them. Rush makes such good common sense and new listeners will find out that he is not a racist or mean and most important, new listeners will see Obama exposed for what he is in plain English.

You source is wrong. It’s not Hardball as you state ... it’s some obscure website.

That’s a given.

14 million, and I could be wrong, I think doesn’t included all the ears who tune in but don’t stick with the program 3 hrs a day five days a week. Those numbers I believe are over 20 million. Which probably means if they are saying 25 million the less committed listeners would be greater.

Sure, I understand the fear. But their insecurity leads them to be exceedingly foolish and heighten Rush’s profile which leads to more listeners and tha in turn leads to them being exposed and more converts as well as a re-invigorated base who goes out and defends him and these principles to everyone they come across and that leads to converts too.

If they had any self control they wouldn’t acknowledge him at all but they are so thin skinned they cannot do that.

All the better for us, but you’d think they’d learn.

I was a College Republican in the early 90’s at Ohio State. We hoped and prayed for negative stories in the school newspaper. Every negative story got us new members.

Les than 10 % eh..? of non-voters ?

I think Rush has a larger than 10 % in the categories of Registered voters and voter drop outs.
Not much more, but throw in the Independants and BHOle has a problem.

No I missed the interview. Was that earlier today? I posted an interview he did with Hugh Hewitt’s fill in the other day. It’s 27:00 minutes into the audio that he starts to attack Rush.

Audio: Geraghty, fill in for Hewitt, speaks with Frum (Frum goes after Rush again) 3/3/09
