"Bipartisanship" Is A Dirty Word; and RUSH: "We want to defeat them"
RushLimbaugh.com ^ | February 6, 2008 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 02/07/2008 2:42:26 AM PST by Yosemitest

This is built on two articles from Rush's show today. I've added a few photos and links.



TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Extended News; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: election; electionpresident; elections; evangelicals; gop; huckabee; johnmccain; juanmcaztlan; mccain; mccainromney; mikehuckabee; mittromney; republican; republicans; rino; rinos; rush; rushlimbaugh; talkradio; taxes; transcript
Well done, Rush,
and thank you, very, very much.
I have so much to add to this, McCain-Feingold, McCain-Kennedy, and Lieberman-McCain, really makes my blood boil. What should McCain say to the conservatives?
What I love to hear his say is, But that power hungry, vile piece of garbage, ain't gonna' do that.

Do conservatives really want to lose?
We've been losing ever since Reagan left office.
We want McCain to lose, and lose big.
If Hillary or Obama gets into office, then we'll get more conservatives in the House and Senate.

Well ... I can think of another "Mr Brooks" that could probably come up with a solution.

May I suggest "John McCain vs. the Right: No easy peace; Update: McCain at CPAC" by Michelle Malkin as a resource into his problems with conservatives.

When you’re lecturing conservatives and Graham and Lieberman are standing next to you, my eyes glaze over.

I’m with you. Every picture of him standing on a podium shows him with other RINOS or libs.

I heard last night that he is going to use a Reagan film to “introduce” himself at CPAC today. A way of saying he has the Reagan mantle. OMG! The guy needs to get a clue. Does he not see how that will offend conservatives.

Hey wound. Meet Salt.

What McCain can say to reassure conservtives:

“I announce my withdrawal from the Presidential campaign...”

It is a mighty big “nutshell”, but that sums it up in a nutshell.

'I think they've made their case against me pretty eloquently,' he said, adding wryly, 'if that's the right word.'
Sounds to me like he's admitting that he's an ass in an elephant's clothing.

Offensive as it is, McCain will probably become the GOP nominee. Hitlerie’s campaign is in financial trouble and is facing a much longer primary race than she had hoped. Therefore it is probable that Barak Obama will be the Dem’s nominee. Without an energized base supporting him, which he will not have, it is very probable that McCain will lose the general election. Therefore,it seems reasonable to expect that the final result of Super Tuesday will be an Obama presidency, with all that means. Not a pretty picture.

So McCain’s master plan is too act and talk like a liberal to get some of the leftist-centrists and liberals to vote for him. Then supposedly when he gets in office he will turn his back on all these new voters and govern conservatively ? So we are supposed to be happy about this master plan to win the Presidency that is based on deception ? Apparently McCain knows nothing about conservatives. We do not govern by deceit and we despise those who do.

The Ant and the Grasshopper
.................................................

TRADITIONAL VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

MODERN UPDATED VERSION:

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. Americais stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.”

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Jesse then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

Nancy Peloski, John Kerry & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity and Anti-Grasshopper Act, retroactive to the beginning of the summer! The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a
defamation suit against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare recipients.
The ant loses the case.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2008.

Yeah, where is the Republican Party in all this? I'll tell you where. Look what has happened. The Republicans took over congress in 1994. Gingrinch inacted the Contract With American. Republicans were on a B-Line to utterly and completely dimsantle big government. When they started too the DBM/dems threw up their arms and went berserk. In the thirteen years since then as a party we've gone from a strong unified conservative movement to this wishy-washy McPita rino/moderate quagmire. What happened?

BUSH...Compassionate Conservatism.

The only thing the conservatives of the party felt they could do to advance the republican party is to support moderate Bush. And look what they've gotten for it! This has been dissaster of biblical proportions. Conservative allowed Bush to run roughshod over them with moderate values and it's produced this McPita effect. If McPita gets nominated the only thing conservatives can do is force a brokered convention by not supporting him, because the alternative, at least at this point becomes President Hillary Clinton. < /spew chunk factor >

I will never vote for Hillary, but what I will do is sit on my dead conservative ass in November if McPita is the nominee, and millions will join me!

"What should McCain say to the conservatives? What I love to hear his say is, "I'm sorry. I was wrong to turn my back on the base of the party, the conservatives. I realize that I can't get the conservatives' support, so I resign my office, and resign my campaign for the Presidency."

If he said those things and did resign his office and his campaign, I might be able to forgive him and respect him. But an ice machine in hell is more likely to happen than McAmnesty ever saying those things. If McAmnesty is on the ballot in November, I either vote third party or write-in Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson, or Lou Dobbs (Lou gets it on stopping the illegal alien invasion and securing our borders and ports).

It will set us back 20 yrs but it is a price we will have to pay.I have decided that to get the party back to conservatism we need to send the message that if you are gonna sell us out we are going to show you the door. We can send the message that four years from now if you are not for conservative principles you need not apply. The biggest mistake Ronald Reagan made was choosing Geo. Bush for his running mate. He could have had any true conservative he wanted and he picked a RINO.

Another thing that's interesting is that the Democrat advisers like Bob Beckel and others act dumbfounded by the conservatives' disgust with McCain.

It's like Br'er Rabbit saying "But don't fling me in that briar patch."
The Democrats say they're scared of McCain. BULL!!!!!!

Then again, sometimes I wonder if they really don't want a lesser liberal that the democrats can support, rather than Hillary or Obama.

Do you think that the Democrats would put McCain over the top in November?

Rush and the rest of the RINOs are nothing but a bunch of egotistical blowhards, and I now question if they were ever real Republicans to begin with. They like Democrats so much, let them join them.

Liberalism does not compromise.

McCain becomes president... a liberal win. If he chooses Huckabee as VP... a double liberal win.

Either way, the liberals have won this election. I’m voting third party, because voting republican means voting liberal Fifth Column.

I think you will be disappointed to learn that history does not repeat itself in such simple ways.

With a Democrat Congress and Senate, it will take Hillary or Obama less than two years to permanently alter the calculus of this country.

Rush also knows that we do not win by losing.

I think you’re right. Get a “moderate” that goes along with a very large part of the liberal agenda, but has an “R” so as not to scare people off. This is the first national election I can recall in my 52 years where the so-far front runners offer varying degrees of liberalism.

McPita is nothing but a rino of the worst order, disloyal, backstabbing, liberal coddling, hothead. If you want that for a Republican President I'll fight your measily rino supporting, namby-pamby moderate existence with every conservative bone in my body.

There will be war in this republican party before it's all done. Now, is the time! NO MORE RINO'S!

Btw, conservatives WILL NOT yield to McPita and his moderate/independent/rino supporters. If you guys want to be part of this party, YOU have to come to the conservative values side and concede to us!!!

You're probably right. So why didn't the reverse happen in November 2000 when Republicans won total control? I can tell you why...because of RINOS, with McCain leading the pack.

It's no longer about winning or losing, it's about principles and believing in them. McCain will not receive my vote. Ever.

You are correct I probably am right now in the minority, but you moderate/rino McPainintheass supporters have to come and concede to us conservatives because moderate rino's like McPita are a deathnail to conservatism and the Republican Party. I won't allow that to happen.

I will do everything politically to fight you to your ilk for this parties soul. I won't vote for the other side, to take him out, but I will never support him and work diligently to get rid of him and his moderate, liberal coddling ways.

Can you explain to me how I'm the rino????
