Skip to comments.Just cancelled my subscription with Rush

I was looking for the "vanity" thing but could not find it. I hope I did not do anything wrong for Fr to post in this section.
The first 3 words of Rush show today were for Sarah "Fight like a girl" - so I was very excited to hear what Rush had to say about that beautiful teaparty and Sarah speech in Madison Wisconsin. I think that was so important for the symbolism of it - unions and stuff - courageous of her to go there - and I also think that Sarah was great and her speech surely deserved a good 10 minutes from Rush.
Well..I waited and waited through a long hour of so annoying tax stuff, a good 15 minutes about Trump...sick of it really..and then an almost full hour about global warming..and then around 2.30 I emailed Rush show and said that I will revoke my subscription if I don't hear about Sarah's speech in Madison at least for 10 minutes before the end of the show. Well, I did not expect them to be scared..ah..
And then, nothing at all about Sarah in Madison.
So I cancelled. I am not sure where Rush is going but frankly I find him very boring lately. Excusing the pitiful Gop after they caved on budget. Bizarre. Is he becoming a RINO? Something's up with Rush.
Can’t disagree, he’s been terribly boring and uninformative lately.
For a guy who says he doesn’t like to talk about himself, he’s sure been spending a lot of time parsing his position on the birth certificate and Trump. Maybe Sarah Palin threatens him too.
You showed him.
It’s your money. Do you think Rush would want you to give it to him against your will? Or are you looking for someone to agree with you? Just curious.
Good grief. Does the entire world have to revolve around Palin?
It’s not just you.... Rush seems to have lost something since his marriage. Maybe he’s happy now so the job doesn’t hold his interest like it used to??
I think our expectations of mere mortals are way too high these days.
You can listen to Mark Levin for free day or night. Your subscription $ can go to FR instead.
I have the conceit that I have a pretty good vocabulary...but I had to look that one up. I’m impressed...:)
Great minds.... ;)
Looks like this is the perfect time for me to sign up to Rush 24/7.
Yes. Sarah Palin is the center of the universe...magritte
Breaking News, y’all!
Rush has this on his website:

Story #1: Palin to GOP Establishment: Fight Like a Girl
RUSH: Did you see Sarah Palin? I’m paraphrasing here. Sarah Palin said that the GOP leadership needs to learn how to “fight like a girl.” Now, that’s a great line. That is a great line, and the way she meant it obviously is certainly true. But you know the Republican leadership in the House, can you imagine what they feel? (laughing) They probably feel like sane people who have been mistakenly committed to a lunatic asylum. They need all the support they can get, they’re looking evil in the face every day, and now they have Sarah Palin saying, “You guys need to learn how to fight like girls,” and they’re wondering if while they weren’t looking the guys in the white coats came and picked ‘em up over the weekend and took ‘em to the home.
(and he gives the link to the full article on Fox Nation)
Is that old windbag still on the air?
Phew..I feel a bit better. Thank you :-) I was ready to take all the anger from Freepers and I thought I was the only one to feel that way. Thanks.
It’s obviously another conspiracy devised by the Patriarchy.
I’m sure he’ll miss you.
The impact of your cancellation on Rush would be similar to you losing 1/100th of a cent.
Rush is being cautious for good reason. He opened mentioning her and mentioned she made a good speech.
What more do you want?
Not a good reason to quit him since he has given her so much time.
I said to hubby the other night the same thing. It’s like
his mind has gone on vacation, or sometimes it seems that
it is a show from another time zone. He’s not the same...
I upped mine last month.
What you’re upset because he didn’t talk about Palin? Does the whole conservative world revolve around her..
you’re making a big deal about ‘nothing’, if you ask my opinion.
I will, I think, give Rush a chance to get his principles back. Don’t know how long I’ll give him.
But I will say this; he doesn't cut people off with their phone calls.
| Palin in Wisconsin: ''We didn't elect you just to re-arrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic. We didn't elect you to just stand back and watch Obama re-distribute those deck chairs. What we need is for you to stand up, GOP, and fight. Maybe I should ask some of the Badger women's hockey teamthose champions -- maybe I should ask them if we should be suggesting to GOP leaders they need to learn how to fight like a girl!''
Click for my Palin in Wisconsin speech highlight!
Now Zer0 has a track record that he must run on.
The winning rule in 2012: Direct and non-stop political attack on Obama!
Sarah is still the best candidate out there, and that speech was so good even the left wing press was impressed.
I can’t believe that Rush ignored it.
I was also very troubled to see that he was giving Trump a big push. I thought he understood that Trump is a damned leftist. Yes, the birther stuff has been great. But no, Trump is NOT a viable candidate.
In fact my granddaughter just joined.
It’s good to see smart teenagers these days.
You did don you asbestos skivvies before posting, right?
I wasted 45 seconds reading that drivel, and about the same typing this. I wish I could get my time back.
It's not her fault. They all rely on Drudge to do their show prep and have become lazy. You can tell the content of most talk radio for the new day just by clicking on Drudge in the morning. Don and Roma are good for this in Chicago, though I'd just as soon listen to Don as Rush.
I think Rush skims Drudge, skims Free Republic and that is his show prep.
I’ve got the impression that Rush is in this big time for Sarah. Maybe I’m wrong. I just get the impression that Sarah is his choice for 2012.
My third year.
I stopped listening to him 11+ years ago!
I agree with you. For whatever the reason he does seem to be a day late and a dollar short on his show prep lately.
Does this count as an opus or a swan song?
Rush goes with flow of events and talks about whatever he wants to talk about. So don’t be surprised that he’s on and off depending on how events go.
Madison, Wisconsin has died down somewhat, and Palin hasn’t yet announced her candidacy officially. Also, the ball is in Boehner’s court and the House having the only credibility left on the Hill. Rush at the core is about bashing the Democrats and not cheerleading the Republicans when the Republicans have to actually do the actually sausage making of legislation.
I think Rush will be back someday soon to your satisfaction. But renewing your subscription is your prerogative.
I don;t listen to Rush...
because I already graduated from the Rush Limbaugh University. I know am a right-wing conservative who hates liberals.
I was a liberal in high school until the day I heard Rush on the radio. No need for Masters degree in Rush.
So when is the giant idol being erected?
He's a cut above all the back-benchers!
Many years ago, Rush used to brag that he would never read articles to his audience. Seems like that is all he is doing lately. By the time his show airs, I’ve already read the things he is highlighting. Of course I like his take, but he wastes valuable time by regurgitating the pieces.
I posted a few days ago here that sheer laziness or complacency has allowed Rush to cede the birth certificate issue to Trump. Rush has lost his edge, and that, my friends, is just plain sad.
If I was Rush, I’d be devastated!
