Nothing against Rush of course.
Don’t bring persuasion to a gunfight.
The way to beat liberals is not to trick them; it is to flush them away like the sewage they are.
Rush doesn’t convince people?
Yes, no one who does not LISTEN to his show, EVAR.
But if they listen 1 or 2 times, they’re hooked.
Rush wins arguments by screaming “Your [sic] an idiot”...?
The only person who’d say that is someone who has NEVER heard his show. In fact he’s polite —incredibly so. To callers, to his friends, to co-workers, to his pilots and ground crew, to people he is SUPPOSED to hate, the list goes on and on.
It’s just “cool” to say that Rush is mean, and sorry, but that’s just incorrect. The truth is MUCH harder, much more complex —Rush takes care of people and even many of the libs who call his show.
The left needs to repeat “Rush is mean and screams” because the very thought of even giving him just ONE CHANCE is terrifying to them. And it’s terrifying because deep down they have a dawning sense of just how rickety it is, their conceptual model of how the world works.
They ignore and bash him, and he is GOING TO WIN. And so are WE.
Any one thinking that Zero's followers could even hang in a Econ class, let alone with Friedman, is kidding themselves. Most of Obama's people, the 47 percent ... plus, couldn't get by the Calc 3 course to get into intermediate Econ course. (At least that is what I had to do 30 years ago)
There are no arguments that will win with liberals. They are brainwashed. I’m tired of being called evil because I’m conservative. We have “compromised” over the years instead of standing up for our priniples, and Republican moderates believed like this guy that we needed to make them love us. Well they don’t, and the liberals have insisted on us giving up half of what we wanted as we’ve gone down the slope calling it compromise. We have to understand that they ask for far more than they expect, knowing we will “compromise” and they’ll end up with what they want. The moderates have been in charge too long and given us more and more welfare and less and less morality. Time to put adults in charge. Repubs like Graham and McCain have to go.
Rush Rocks, too!
Wouldn't that be "You're an idiot" idiot?
“Your an idiot”?? First, it’s you’re an idiot, and second, you’re an idiot.
Reaching across the aisle only benefits the person you reach across to in politics.
The basic premise of the author is flawed. He thinks liberals are open to reasonable discussion of issues.
They are not. Their views are based on emotion.
What a bunch of baloney.
I won’t point out all the poor logic in this piece.
But the main flaw in the author’s reasoning is that one can persuade liberals. One does not persuade liberals. One defeats them. You don’t convert them to your way of thinking (impossible), you overcome them. They are mentally ill.
Tom’s a touch thick.
Nah. Better to go after the low hanging fruit. That’s the way the Left does it. They go after the college and HS kids, the skulls full of mush, that are generally open minded. We have to convince those that will listen that the Leftists are nothing less than vicious authoritarians.
As far as Rush is concerned, he seems to be phoning it in nowadays. Focusing on the superficial culture stuff is really boring, but that’s probably what it takes to attract new low info voters.
Having worked with rabid liberals at a union for 10 years, sometimes I would just act dumb and ask them to explain how something worked according to their beliefs. I’d just keep asking, and most of the time they would end up walking away with their head down, or sometimes get irritated because the knew they didn’t have a good argument.
It worked for Al Franken.......
