[Operation Chaos] Operational Pause Officially Lifted [by Rush Limbaugh]
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | 30 Apr 08 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/01/2008 9:07:06 AM PDT by seanmerc

RUSH: A TV station in Indianapolis thinks they caused the operational pause in Operation Chaos. WISH-TV, the anchor Eric Halvorson and his report last night on Operation Chaos.

HALVORSON: Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh called for a pause in what he calls Operation Chaos. It's a call to conservatives to vote in Democratic primaries to extend the nomination battle. Yesterday, 24 Hour News 8 Jim Shella reported on official reactions to Operation Chaos here, a story Limbaugh referenced on the air today.

RUSH: So they're implying, ladies and gentlemen, that Operation Chaos, the operational pause was due to their report. I can understand. I can understand a local television station wanting to think they're a factor in a major nationwide operation, and they're doing a hard-hitting investigation out there, that's what local TV news is known for. I don't want to deflate them. I don't want to ruin their day out there in the newsroom at WISH-TV, but the operational pause in Operation Chaos was due strictly to the Obama press conference yesterday while we awaited what I knew was going to happen, media reaction, because we had to determine what course of action we would order next given the media reaction to Obama yesterday. And I can just tell you, the operational pause is now lifted. Operation Chaos is back at full speed, and we have no change in direction, orders from headquarters remain exactly what they are: You are to go out and sustain the Democrat primary season by virtue of voting for Hillary Clinton. Nothing has changed, ladies and gentlemen, nothing whatsoever.

Why would he issue a “pause” just before a speech? There was no voting that day. That’s kind of weird.

Rush is brilliant. He predicted EXACTLY what the drive-by response would be, but called an "operational pause" to see if they would surprise him and dump on Obama, in which case he'd urge people to vote for Obama. But they didn't.

Right now, Rush Limbaugh is John McCain's best friend, and ONLY effective campaigner.

A Hillary Presidency will push Rush’s ratings way, way up: even political comedians need a straight man...no, straight woman...well, perhaps straight woman...to work with.

You people just can’t wrap your minds around the fact that the MM would have buried Wright so far under the radar if Hillary was already out of the race.

Understand that the MSM only tolerates a democrat being criticized if it’s from another democrat.

Now, many democrats say they won’t vote for the other candidate if theirs is not the nominee. That alone almost guarantees a McCain win.

Oh wait, that’s not great either.

So who is the best choice - the BLT candidate, the communist, or the socialist republican ?

Extending the Democrat campaign was Limbaugh's gift to Republicans. McCain is making a point of staying above the fray, so that the Democrats can continue their internecine war uninterrupted.

An unfortunate side-effect is that Hillary has grown stronger as as candidate even as -- we hope -- she loses.

I see. And it is interesting that the media didn’t dump on Obama. They would have dumped on Hillary if she had done the exact same thing.

It means they’re afraid to confront the Obama supporters.

Man, there’s gonna be a hot time in the Denver town this summer!

Agreed—I was just listening to him during my lunch hour and turned him off. He’s telling the supers what to do—(don’t worry, blacks won’t sit home if you give it to Hillary—they have never left you before in our history, no matter what...blah blah). Let’s just hand the presidency over to her right now. I am just sick.

Just got finished with a heated discussion with a liberal Obama supporter, who is still convinced Obama a) will win the nomination and b) win the general election.

I told him Wright is like a tin can on the tail of a dog. Obama is toast.

Rush must think that McCain will do better against Hillary. I fear we will look back on "Operation Chaos" with deep regret when Hillary becomes POTUS #44.

Rush...lay off the comparisons to George Washington, please!

[So who is the best choice - the BLT candidate, the communist, or the socialist republican ? ]

None of the three are acceptable to those who want some kind of fiscal responsibility and a genuine desire to uphold the Constitution from the next president. That objective is irretrievably lost. The next best outcome possible is to have the Democratic Party beat up its own members and for their allies to be in perpetual disarray. Even if we end up with a President Obama or President Clinton, the fact that their lack of competence for the job was evident before the election and such an unqualified candidate can only win by virtue of not having any real competition, will make it that much easier to boot them out of office at the earliest opportunity in favor of a better alternative from the right (remember Reagan succeeding Carter).

The chaos was already well underway by the time Rush assumed ownership of “Operation Chaos” and it would be proceeding pretty much the same right now, with or without him. It's being driven by a grassroots effort from dissatisfied conservatives who know what they're doing when they poke their fingers in the Democrat primary process.

And it's FUN.

Rush Limbaugh’s job is to garner ratings, not win elections. He is doing his job quite well, and has for a long time. Operation Chaos is entertainment, and is having no quantifiable effect on the Democrat nomination process. Stop being silly and get on with your lives.

"Rush is such a buffoon"

Another intellectually riveting response to Rush from someone unable to refute his assertions.

Obama is toast, that’s true. But then think of Hillary in the general election. With her negatives and her sniper fire attack experience. She’s toast, too.

I think we’re going to be stuck with the third Democrat in the race: John McCain. I just hope he picks a Republican VP. But then again, why should he?

Yes, I agree. To be reduced to hoping that somehow an as-yet unnamed VICE PRESIDENTIAL candidate for the least-least-desirable of the candidates somehow ends up in the presidency shows how desperate we all are, and how bad off the nation is.

You’re right.

This seems to be your most common response to what I have to say to you.

Perhaps you should realize you are in the company of superior minds.

Agreed. Those who don’t understand what Rush is doing are missing the big picture.

I’m enjoying the schadenfreude the Dems have promoted by their “identity politics” all these years.

Chickens coming home to roost !

Just wait until some of these fools find out in November that they can’t change party affilliation now that they have declared themselves to be Democrats. At least that’s the way it is in WA.

Why would that matter ? You can vote for either party in the general.

The mail-in ballots in WA had very strong wording saying that by signing here you pledge to stay with the party that you selected in this primary. It *sounded* like they could invalidate your vote if you went against your pledge.

Yes, beandog, these Rush bashers will use any argument for not voting in the Dem Primaries, forgetting that in the General you can vote for whom ever you want regardless of party affiliation. They just don't understand Rush humor or the trouble he is stirring up among he Dems. Personally I love the so-called "Operation Chaos", it hasn't really caused any difference in the election but it has Dems crapping their pants, and some conservatives who should know better are also crapping their pants.

The only one who sank Obama, was Obama himself and his minions.

Some of these Rush bashers are just about as bright as Democrats.

Wow, you really need to bone up on election law. During a General election(as opposed to a primary)you get the same ballot regardless of party affiliation and you vote for what ever candidate you wish to vote for. If you really think they can invalidate your vote by voting for a republican candidate when you are registered democrat then I really think you need a brain transplant.
