Skip to comments.(Vanity) Rush Limbaugh & EIB-Proxy Mark Stein : Why savagely pro-Santorum and anti-Newt Gingrich ?
Posted on 03/01/2012 9:11:00 AM PST by Patton@Bastogne
Let's start with this news quote posted at Free Republic today (Thursday, 2012-03-01) coming from the Rick Santorum Campaign:
Top adviser John Brabender says Santorum's future may depend upon Gingrich leaving the race.
First, I'm a Newt Gingrich guy (Rush) ...
Second ... "if" I was a Rick Santorum, that (above) remark by a key Santorum strategist would scare the "daylights" out of me ...
It is "clearly" delusional thinking ...
That's a "very bad" way to run a campaign ... very bad, indeed ...
"If" Rick Santorum goes to sleep every night ... with his final prayer being ... "Please convince Newt to drop-Out" ...
Rick Santorum is "clearly" delusional ...
BUT will Rush Limbaugh have the COURAGE to call Santorum on this ?
Newt Gingrich has many detractors ... but almost "all" of them KNOW that Newt's going to FIGHT LIKE HELL all the way to the Tampa GOP Convention ...
Newt will fight ... like Patton crossing Germany in the Fall of 1944 ...
If Nancy Pelosi KNOWS it ... so should "Little Ricky Santorum" ...
I guess Thursday's question is:
Will Rush Limbaugh discuss this point today ?
A couple of days ago Rush Limbaugh spent a long monologue (sp) stressing that "Rush lives in Realityville" ...
What would Rush Limbaugh say about a key Santorum Campaign Staffer (publicly) hoping that Newt Gingrich drops-out of the race ?
What "should" Rush Limbaugh say ?
Rush should kick Rick Santorum's XXXXX publicly ... with EXTREME PREJUDICE ... for that absolutely stupid remark ...
"What will we hear next from Santorum's Campaign ?" Rush would (should) ask ...
A) That Barrack Obama should admit that he's "really" a Moslem ?
B) That Barrack Obama should admit that U.S. unemployment is "really" 15-17 percent ?
C) That Barrack Obama should admit that he's "really" NOT a genuine U.S. citizen ?
D) That Barrack Obama should admit that he's "really" a freakin' racist ?
We've all heard Rush Limbaugh ... and that Rush-Alter-Ego (formerly respected) IDIOT ... Mark Stein ...
"SAVAGELY" attack Newt Gingrich ...
And we all know ... for a FACT that Rush Limbaugh would FIRE Mark Stein in a "New York Minute" if Rush felt that Mark Stein had crossed the magic line ...
The FACT is that Rush Limbaugh knowing invited (and re-invited several times) Mark Stein to the Golden EIB microphone ...
with the SINGULAR INTENT of Character Assassination against Newt Gingrich.
Did Mark Stein "savagely" attack anyone else ?
And that's why ... after enjoying listening to Rush Limbaugh for ten-plus years ... I'm gradually weaning myself from his "agenda" and "show" ...
So where will Rush Limbaugh be today ?
Carrying MORE WATER for "Little Ricky Santorum" ?
"Explaining Away" what "Little Ricky Santorum" REALLY was trying to say ?
Give me a break ...
Anyway ... the Santorum Campaign really needs to stop making these "stupid" mistakes ... they are killing him ... politically ...
And Rush Limbaugh AND Mark Stein should just admit that's they're in the tank ... and in political bed with ... Ricky Santorum ... and the rest of the GOP E-RINO elite ...
In the case of Steyn, it is genuine. Steyn really has contempt for Gingrich. I don’t think Steyn likes any of the remaining candidates, but is willing to consider Santorum as least objectionable.
Sometimes, someone rubs somebody else the wrong way. Newt Gingrich rubs Steyn the wrong way, and Steyn has had no difficulty making his case against Gingrich.
For my part I see good in both Newt and Rick, and could happily support either (leaning towards Santorum). I have nothing bad to say about Newt. I just don’t think that Steyn is carrying water for anyone.
Feel better now?
Feel better now?
Feel better now?
First, his name is Mark Steyn. I am sure that Rush Limbaugh has no advance notice of what his guest hosts will talk about.
Rush is certainly not rooting for Santorum, he is rooting for conservatism. Rush knows how very, very unlikely it is for Rick Santorum to get the nomination. It is, and has been for some time, a Romney-Gingrich race.
limbaugh is, and has always been, for Romney. Anyone who doesn’t know that, doesn’t know limbaugh.
Probably the for same reason so many of us are as well:
It also helps that not only has Santorum never sucked up to Nancy, but that he calls global warming a hoax.
I’ll let FReepers do the talking on just one issue and we’ll ignore things like his continued support of ethanol subsidies.
Gingrich ‘Deeply Upset’ That Scozzafava Endorsed Democrat After He’d Supported Her (ROFL)
Newt: “I am, however, deeply dissapointed that she has chosen to back Owens over Hoffman.”
Jarrett: Dems want Scozzafava nod (Newt? Newt?)
Right To Work Prez Calls Out Newt’s Hypocrisy
Group Calls on Gingrich to Rescind Endorsement of Scozzafava
Who Lied to (RINO) Newt Gingrich?
Newt Gingrich - “King of the RINOs”
Gingrich: A Vote for Hoffman Is a Vote for Pelosi
Farewell To GOP’s Squishy Gingrich Wing
Are you kidding me?
Gingrich calls GOP support for Hoffman a ‘purge’
Newt on Greta talking about Scozzafava
Newt Gingrich: Doug Hoffman support a ‘mistake’
What difference does it make where Rush is today?
It’s up to the american right to pick its candidate, not a radio host.
It’s up to the GOP to present viable conservative candidates, not a radio host.
If we can’t settle on a conservative candidate, then that is the fault of our primary voters and not Rush Limbaugh’s fault.
BS, dude. I listen to him every day.
Ann Coulter is for Mitt Romney. That’s what it looks like.
I am sick of this BS. Rush has said negative things about all of them.
Steyn doesn’t like Newt and doesn’t try to hide it.
Can you correct the spelling of his name in the title?
“Will Rush Limbaugh discuss this point today ?”
Unless I read on FR that he did, I will never know.
I no longer care to listen to that windbag. “Bloody Thursday” was the last straw for me.
Dumping Rush isn’t a bad thing, heck, I am saving money on the deal. ;>)
Did you hear that noise? Oops, I think that was Ricky throwing up again.
GO NEWT GO......
** President Newt Gingrich-”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
Newt has REPEATEDLY stated that Santorum should drop out of the race so he, himself, could take Romney on. It’s only delusional when Santorum says it?
Rush is straddling a multi-dimensional fence - not wanting to endorse any particular candidate. He has to dance pretty fast to maintain this position, but he is showing that his priority is in maintaining a large radio audience by being non-committal.
Newt has created a lot of enemies in Washington and in the establishment media. And that is coming back to him now. He has the ability to overcome it, if he can get his message out. When you really think about how things are in Washington with a group of go-along-to-get-along types, what would be wrong with selecting someone who didn’t need to be everyone’s friend?
I voted for Newt in FL, I expect him to win GA and maybe several other Super Tuesday states, and I hope that he has enough delegates at the convention to be able to make his case there. I see this as analogous to the 1976 convention where Gerald Ford managed to block Reagan, the result of which did great damage to the country for the ensuing Presidential term. Newt will make his stand and the GOP will have to make its decision.
You are right. Rush is no Andrew Breitbart, that’s for sure! Andy kicks doors in at any cost and at some definite risk.
Rush stradles fences for personal gain designed to avoid agitating the fewest members of his audience as possible, while still maintaining his self identified “cutting edge”.
I love Rush and his wit. He is a master of articulation, in so far as he is willing to go to advocate. There it ends. At the profit margin.
Steyn and Rush have egos that trump their appreciation for historic IN OFFICE accomplishments of Newt Gingrich, perhaps influenced by the OUT OF OFFICE baggage concerning weird two ex-wives who corraled him for a time.
The DeDe thing is harped about against Newt, a man who still has glass under his finger nails from the distance he crawled through for the Republican Party. She was a fake with an (R), but Newt was lending support to the Party he built and tried to save, and lived to regret that support in this ONE case.
