Skip to comments.[Rush] Limbaugh Predicts McCain Victory
Posted on 10/31/2008 5:39:03 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh says that Sen. John McCain will score a stunning upset over Sen. Barack Obama and win the presidency on Nov. 4.
In an interview with London Telegraph correspondent Nigel Farndale published Friday, Limbaugh said the mainstream media has been pushing Obamas candidacy because They want to be able to say they did it if Obama wins.
To which Farndale countered, Well, he is going to win, isnt he?
Limbaughs response: No, I dont see it Nigel. I think [Obama has] been dead in the water since the primaries. He is going to need to be up 10 to 12 points to win by 3 or 4.
The latest poll of polls on RealClearPolitics.com showed Obama leading by 6.4 percent.
Dont forget, Limbaugh said according to Farndale, that Hillary winning was a foregone conclusion, too. If the polls had been right it would have been Giuliani versus Hillary. Thats why polls a year out are worthless.
Limbaugh also told the correspondent that Obama has erred by going around as the acting president. Its off-putting, Limbaugh said, adding, Unionized blue-collar Democrats didnt vote for him, they voted for Hillary.
On Friday, Limbaugh stopped just short of outright predicting a McCain triumph during his program.
My gut hadnt been giving me any indication on this race, but it started talking to me last night, he told listeners. Barack is headed back to Iowa. That should be a lock; its a dead heat.

And Geraldo Rivera just predicted the end of Rush, Beck, and all the other “hard right” radio when Obama wins.
And I predict the end of Geraldo Rivera when McCain wins.
Yes, indeed he is.
Ummm, isn't he from Illinois?
And Rivera predicted there would be something in Capone’s vaults.....LOL!
LOL! No, he meant headed back to Iowa to campaign. It was thought Iowa was a lock for Obama.
Victoria Jackson is awesome tonight.
Not only did she call Obama a communist, but she is talking about the correlation between "1984" and Obama.
I am so freaking sick and tired of that soulless piece of sh!t Ted Baxter.
As usual, The Gasbag is salaciously defending Obama.
Did Rivera make that prediction because he thinks the “Fairness Doctrine” would be passed, or because he thinks their audiences would naturally dissipate?
Huuum...Rush didn’t go that far on his program...Although his “gut” was starting to move that direction.
YA GOT TA BELIEVE...!
And I do!
YA GOT TA BELIEVE...!
And I do!
I believe âIowaâ is a code word for Indonesia. Just a joke Iowans.
If there was ever a time for Rush to be right, this is it.
Geraldo is such a FAGGOT!! I stopped watching him the night he told Bill O’Reilly that the illegal immigrants were our “Honored Guests”.
What a punk.
Did Rivera make that prediction because he thinks the Fairness Doctrine would be passed, or because he thinks their audiences would naturally dissipate?
There will be a blood bath, if they try to stop talk radio.
> Barack is headed back to Iowa.”
“Ummm, isn’t he from Illinois?”
Yes, Obama is from Illinois. Rush was talking about how Obama is headed back to Iowa to campaign, and Iowa was supposed to be a “solid win” state for Obama. If that is true, why would Obama spend time campaigning there with only three days left?
Rivera didn’t say. He simply said that he predicts the end of talk radio, which the right dominates. That’s my guess Rivera believes the Un”Fairness Doctrine” will become reality again.
This interview took place in August according to Rush who mentioned it on his show today. According to Rush’s “gut” he doesn’t have a read on the election as of today. Rush in August, Rush today. Take your pick.
I think Rush is right. I see so many McCain Palin signs in my state NC. I also read last night on Digg a comment from a former Obama supporter who was sick of him. He said he has paid workers to go onto other websites including the GOP sites pretending to be McCain supporter but then question what he stands for and switch their support, they go to every online news outlet to praise and vote for Obama saying they just can’t vote Rep again. He said they get drilled continuously about what they are doing and what to say and where to go. It was really scary how far the liberals would go to eskrew the polling numbers. The large numbers that turn out for his rallys...paid supporters they have to show up, given bus tickets or car pooling to get there just for show so when he loses it will look like the republicans stole the election.
That line and the title are contradictory.
Bill O has to be fair and balance...even when they are clearly wrong.
Rush is right! McCain / Palin will win.
“...because he thinks their audiences would naturally dissipate.””
Anyone that believes that is truly delusional.
Clinton’s 8 years did nothing but accelerate the growth of conservative media.
Outright censorship would be the only way to shut down the wildly and consistently successful Rush Limbaugh. Any attempt to censor right-leaning radio programs and internet sites, (conservative TV? what conservative TV?), media would be a rather large step toward civil war in this country.
IMO he's right (as ususal 98.8% of the time). Everything I've seen and read shows Mac winning.
But we all have to vote. No matter what happens, no matter what the numbers show WE ALL MUST VOTE.
ONE NATION UNDER GOD VOTE PRO-LIFE

“As usual, The Gasbag is salaciously defending Obama.”
The Gasbag is in the bag for nobama. Mr. “Fair ‘n Balanced” is out of balance.
He is a maggot. For all his blowhard talk of standing up to the “powers that be” he sure kisses nobama’s fat Marxist butt - every bloody day.
Remember when he compared our website to Daily Kos and other "fringe" people?
Billy Graham, There is life after Death.
BTW Rush was wrong about Hillary. I hope Obama fades into grey after Nov 4th. You guys really like Rush
Praying for rush to be able to say SITYS.
Some Obamabots have infiltrated Free Republic, but they are relatively easy to spot.
Some of them post the most absurd things around here.
I Think I may have some fun, schadenfreude, at the media expense, when Obama goes down in flames.
I'm open to suggestions about how to go about it.
Michelle Malkin took care of Geraldo.
Amazing video almost 1.6 million viewed. Check out the one called THE ONE it too is powerful
Yes, And I remember him doing the back stroke somewhat.
Maybe he found out that the late Tony Snow and other FOX news contributors have/are posters on FR.
Maybe not stupid, but definitely pompous and arrogant.
I put out a bunch of them.
Geraldo was over long ago
IF somehow BO were to win on Tuesday, buyers remorse will set in even before the Inauguration. Conservative fundraising and media outlets will grow exponentially over the next 2-4 years and BO’s presidency will be a living Hell... in large measure because he is an inept empty suit.
and that is just for starters.
Youtube video already - that’s fast.
If Mac wins either Ohio or Pennsylvania, he wins EC.
That assumes he wins in Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Missouri, and Virginia, which I believe he will. Of this latter group, Virginia worries me most.
I did not vote early. I had to work. I will vote Tuesday with my first-time voter son. I will, literally, drag him out of bed if necessary.
He dislikes Palin (too religious for him), but dislikes Obama more.
Most ignored by msm? Pumas and a significant number of “undecideds” (whoever or whatever that strange species may be) who will go for Mac.
I do not hate Obama. I do hate the media with visceral and cognitive ferocity. The media are the traitors.
Maybe Obama is a nice guy. I doubt it. He is a narcissist, and an anti-American in my flyover view.
I agree with Michelle: He hasn’t done anything to justify his ascendancy to the presidency. If he is elected, we will be screwed for a while, but we will not lose the Republic.
I am heartened by what is shaping up to be a huge, huge turnout, and a slight shift in under 35s to Mac. I am also encouraged by the fact that Americans still enjoy a secret ballot.
However, if his holiness will pay my mortgage, buy my gas, and put steaks (porterhouse, please) on my table, I might vote for the One. (Do I have to write “sarc” for my FRiends?)
Mac gets 274 EC. Sadly, that’s about my best case scenario right now.
Oh, the Rivera Al Capone vault fiasco. LoL!
RCP poll also includes CBS, NBC, and other highly slanted media polls (re: PEW), so if RCP say 6.4% lead for Obama, it probably is actually around 8% lead for McCain. Rush said on his show yesterday that his “gut” wasn’t telling him anything, but then today he said “my gut finally started speaking to me last night”. He mentioned Obama’s appearance in Colorado as one of the factors. Colorado, site of the DNC convention and the Greek Theatre acceptance speech, was supposed to be a done deal. If Colorado is still in play, Obama is in big trouble all over the country.
Oops, that should have been Iowa.
