Rush Limbaugh: Criticism of Tea Party Will Create Whole New Tea Party Generation
Excellence In Broadcating ^ | March 14, 2011 | Rush Limbaugh

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: It's amazing how the liberals distribute their talking points. Every liberal politician, every liberal journalist is reading from the same playbook. All together now: "The Peter King hearings on domestic terrorism will create a whole new generation of jihadists!" We've seen this, right? You saw it all weekend, all last week. "We better be careful! They're going to really get ticked off at us, it's gonna create more terrorists!" Just like Gitmo, just like going to Afghanistan or Iraq were gonna create a whooole new generation of terrorists. All right, how about this?

For those of you at the New York Times (and CBS, ABC, NBC, the Washington Post) using this same talking point that you can't let go of: The Peter King hearings (Guantanamo Bay prison, Abu Ghraib, whatever) is going to lead to a whole new generation of jihadists, how about this: "Any criticism of the Tea Party will create a whole new generation of freedom lovers." You keep ripping into the Tea Party and all you're doing is creating more of 'em. Well, would you think of yourselves and your reporting that way? Then why are you thinking of the Peter King hearings? "Your criticism -- your never-ending, irrational criticism -- of Sarah Palin, it's just gonna create more Sarah Palin Palins coming out of the woodwork."

Would that stop you from your irrational, immature, inexplicable hatred and reporting of Sarah Palin? No, of course, not. You're gonna keep telling us what a bunch of "tea baggers" the Tea Party is. You're gonna tell us what a bunch of racist, sexist, bigot homophobes they are. You're gonna keep telling us how stupid and how dangerous and how whiny and how immature and how everything else Sarah Palin is. But we're not supposed to do the Peter King hearings; it might lead to more jihadists.

So everything these people do is aimed at shutting us up, is aimed at intimidating us -- and the thing that really ticks me off is when it works against our people, like it apparently is working in the House leadership now. "You keep going on this and you're gonna lead to government shutdown, and you're gonna get blamed for it." "Oh, we don't want a government shutdown, and we certainly don't want to get blamed for it!" I hate it. I hate it when they set the premise and we react to it. I just despise it. See, I don't. I just refuse to. But living in Washington-New York apparently changes your attitude about that.

Yep. He is using her to beat the enemy over the head, using their own weapon to do it with—Sarah Palin.

We’re all going to vote for ANYBODY but Obama if that helps, but the dang Independents are in charge of picking our nominee, sorry to say, because they are not going to sit out our primary and they don’t seem to go for Sarah. Pence, maybe, but he’s run for the hills to sit out as a governor and we have a vacume Sarah doesn’t seem eager to fill, nor anyone else either. Just the usual suspects.

In the 08 primaries Duncan Hunter held 90+% on the Free Republic poll which remained on the top page for months. He turned out to be a 1%er. And only a handful here learned from history.

Whenever I bring up a republican candidate, my son asks me one question: “Is he/she going to run all over the world bowing to Muslims and dictators?”

If the answer is no, he says, “OK, I can vote for that.”

Mitt Romney would be hard for me, though.

He may do but Rush usually doesn’t make a quick endorsement so I would not expect it.

It would be highly unusual for Rush to endorse any cancdiate specifically by name before the GOP nomination is decided.

But we live in extraordinary times...

I still don't see Rush making an endorsement in the primary seasaon.

I like Duncan, but his book wouldn't draw thousands at its signing.

Hopefully Rush will stop any movement of the Great Socializer of State Medicine.

IMHO, Indies wont vote like they did in 08 however conservatives will swarm the voting booth!!!! Dems are down too except the Michael Moore folks but they wont come unless you pay them. Blacks wont come out like they did either. :) I truly believe this! Conservatives win this next election.

So Gov Palin is a "1%er?"

HAHAHAHA!

You'll see. I personally know two people who never voted before that came out to vote in '08 just because of her. They went with me to 2 Palin rallies. You have no idea how deep Palin's support is out here in flyover country.

We still have the electoral college, you know. Big cities therefore can't totally control Presidential elections. Not yet, at least. She has a shot.

First things first. Get the redistricting taken care of before the primaries. Consolidate,
