Rush Limbaugh did not mention Sarah Palin not running for president

Posted on 10/06/2011 12:05:01 PM PDT by Politics4US

Why do you think Rush didn't bring up Palin's announcement that she's not running for president?

He has said he did not think she is running.

The Steve Jobs story trampled the Palin story today.

The decision not to run is a personal story, unlike the Chris Christie story where he is being courted by liberal Republicans. If you notice, Rush made THAT the point of his discussion, not the fact that Christie made a decision.

You make an excellent point. I was wondering why myself, your explanation makes sense.

I would not be surprised to hear Sarah on Rush’s show soon, perhaps tomorrow. That would explain why there was no mention today.

Palin’s decision not to run was also a news story.

Uhh...Maybe because it was a non-story?

Just a guess.

A future appearance doesn’t mean he can’t mention the story today.

How was it a non-story, when there were many threads about it on this board, and most of the other hosts talked about it?

Because Rush’s audience is the most informed audience out there and he assumes they already know she’s not running and why. It was a personal decision and I’m sure Rush respects it and assumes we would respect it as well. What more is there to say?

no, it doesn’t but if there is a planned appearance in the next day or two, he might choose to keep the topic fresh.

Just as I was never a "Palinista," I'm certainly not going to go the other direction and attack her. All along I think (can't prove) that she was going to base her decision on testing the waters by the bus tour and movie; and that she privately polled after each; and that the #s among women and independents had not moved from their high negatives. So I think she made a sound calculation that she probably wouldn't get more than low double-digits in a primary race and that it would therefore be a little embarrassing.

That to me doesn't mean she's "in it for the dough," but that unlike Jon Huntsman or Ron Paul, she can actually read a tea leaf.

Because Rush only wanted to talk about Apple and his hero Steve Jobs... the man is obsessed and dedicated his entire show to the worship of his favorite passion... apple and his favorite entrepreneur... Jobs.

I can't speak for the FReepers who posted thread about that, but the way I see it, she wasn't running yesterday, and she's still not running today.

Non-story.

I thought it was a bit unusual myself. You would think that he would have at least mentioned it in passing. He didn’t take many calls today either.

Oh my gosh, are there still Freepers on here that think she still might run, even after announcing she isn’t? If so you need to get help ...

Do you know how ignorant that sounds? Millions of people expected her to announce. She was running something that had all the appearances of a campaign. Of course there’s a big story there. You may not have been rooting for her,,, but its silly to pretend like it’s not news.

And there are a few things to discuss there. Did her kids say ‘mommy no’ and that was it? Was she that shallow? Or was it more likely her calculus that she couldn’t run against Obama and the GOP establishment.
Still,, a much bigger story than the hippies out on Wall Street.

Rush seemed to hop on the Palin bandwagon early on (unusual for him) but then seemed to jump off and onto the Rick Perry bandwagon. I don’t remember him getting involved so early in 2008.

I do not want to hear from Sarah.

I think he is disappointed in her (as he indicated last week) and is waiting for the “dust to settle”. Perhaps he is trying to get more info before saying anything.

She has hurt conservative “women” in politics for a long long time.

Tammy was quite upset today. I am upset too.

Well, he opened his show and made a big deal out of Christie’s announcement.

I think it is odd he never mentioned it.

However, he has been saying he didn’t think she was going to run.

His total focus with Apple lost me. It gets boring.

Rush hasn’t been the same anymore. He goes off the rails and becomes almost super crabby and flippant at times.

He was never rude to his own callers as he has been lately.

He is a generous person, so I will attribute it to old age. LOL

Really? it was pretty clear to me after Oct 1 passed (she gave end of September as a deadline) and that little talk about titles and shackles.

The difference with Christie was that he gave a powerful speech that gave his supporters a reason to hope he’d reconsider while Palin gradually lowered expectations.

Why would Rush mention it? He knows how her supporters are feeling today...so he has enough respect for them to give them time to recover from their loss and it is a loss to them. I realized 2 months ago Sarah wasn’t running and it took days for me to get over being absolutely crushed by that realization. I felt a huge loss from it.

Silly us. I mean, I get that Rush is an Apple guy. I like Apple stuff, too. But we thought that the conservative radio broadcaster of record might have something to say about, you know, a major breaking story in conservative politics.

I'd say no to each of your questions......and just because it wasn't discussed today doesn't mean it won't be discussed tomorrow or next week or the week after.

Have patience my friend......LOL!

Because he calls himself “America’s anchorman,” and he claims he’s the leader of conservatism in America. Almost every other host has talked about it.

Precisely. Yesterday's Paper

But before Rush launched into his unabashed, epic homage to Jobsian greatness to which he has always aspired--

His insists-upon-anonymity friend who forecasts riots.

A capsule of the next thirteen months.

Fed by the Butt-Boy Media (BBM)--

So when Brian Williams pops his head out of Husseinus, he goes giddy over this amazing spontaneous uprising.

A Soros-generated mirror of Kenya 2006 is being rolled out before our eyes.

We don't need no stinking votes if we got machetes and burning tires and the Brian Williams BBM behind us.

Ayers in Caracas in 2006:

Viva la revolucion bolivariana! Hasta la victoria siempre!

The "community organizer" is the Communist agitator is the creep with the bullhorn shouting ends justifies means.

1917. 1922. 1933. 1949. 1959. 1979. Arab Spring. American Soroastrian Movement.

Not the first jackass rodeo.
