Just cancelled my subscription with Rush
Free Republic ^ | 4/18/11 | American Dream 246

Posted on 04/18/2011 6:28:09 PM PDT by American Dream 246

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.

Sorry guys.

Your thoughts?

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.

I hate to say it but Rush is being mellowed out by his wife. Becoming downright uxorious. That woman is giving him no time for show prep like he used to have, so he is mailing it in. Very sad to see another good man brought down by a conniving woman.

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.

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??

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)

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.

He's an entertainer - nothing more!

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 team—those 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.

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.

That woman is giving him no time for show prep like he used to have, so he is mailing it in.

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 agree with you. For whatever the reason he does seem to be a day late and a dollar short on his show prep lately.

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.

Strength.

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.

Dude, the mainstream GOP or neo-conservatives like the Weekly Standard, Rush, National Review, etc. all have dumped Palin.

They hate her. That is why Trump is polling well and getting on TV.

I thought too - actually I still think that so I was very surprised - seemed to me that he is talking about Trump a bit too much (I like the birther thing from Trump but the guy is a liberal) and again, what happened Saturday in Madison was important - even Beck was all over it with what the Unions did there during the speech and the National Anthem and all..

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.
