Hagel: Rush Has No Answers
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/18/2008 6:43:01 PM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Door, meet Hagel.

That's how many Republicans are likely to react after the retiring Nebraska senator blasted Republicans in general and Rush Limbaugh in particular, claiming Rush and fellow conservative talkers "don't have any answers."

David Shuster, subbing for Olbermann on tonight's Countdown, highlighted Hagel's remarks of today.

Hagel has sided with the Democraps so many times he wouldn’t know an answer if it kicked him in the a$$. Maybe now we’ll see a real Conservative in his seat...

...claiming Rush and fellow conservative talkers "don't have any answers."

Yeah, Rush just makes $50 some odd million a year spewing no answers...

Rush should ignore Hagel’s comments. These clowns attack Rush because it’s free publicity.

I have an answer Mr Hagel

Get rid of all the RINO’s like yourself.

There is the answer to almost all of life’s problems.

Hagel, you can go f**k yourself, you lightweight RINO halfwit. Don't let the party door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Looks like Hagel want’s to be RINO in chief.

Since McCain wants to run again in 2010 we need to get behind a conservative in the primaries to defeat him. It’s RINO huntin’ time, we need a conservative to step up to the plate in Arizona, defeating McCain would wake up these RINO’s.

Let them join the democrat/communist party, we’ll make up the defection of the RINO’s with the stay at home conservatives.

I think Rush has been spelling out the answers for quite some time. Return to Conservatism, call out the Liberals for the scumbag traitors they are and get rid of the Hagel RINOs.

Rush does have the answer and it is that we need real Republicans in the GOP not pretenders like Hagel.

Exactly where he needs to be! He belongs with the new administration and its socialist policies. He will be as he truly is a RINO/Socialist! When it fails he will go down in flames with them and we won’t have to listen to his nonsense anymore.

**Maybe now we’ll see a real Conservative in his seat...**

A DemoCRAP in that seat would seem more Conservative!

As for RUSH not having any Answers ... HAGEL, what PLANET have you been on for the last 20 YEARS??? If I follow RUSH’s Advice, I’ve NEVER been wrong. When I followed the GOVT’s advice... it takes RUSH’s Advice to fix the position the Govt PUT ME IN!

Time for Hagel to trundle off to the old RINOS home. He has been added to the “Enemies of the Republic” list by self nomination.

Im hoping that a$$hat takes a job in the 0 administration so that he and his Dem loving bag of dirt of a wife will not darken the doors of my fair state anymore.

It just shows what being in Washington for a while will do to a politician. Hagel was a conservative when he first got elected and devolved into a gasbag RINO after he got elected to his second term.

Good riddance Chuckles the clown. Have fun wrecking the country with your elitist Marx loving buddies. Please try not to show your alky face in Nebraska again.

Sorry about the rant. I hate that guy. The buyers remorse that comes from voting for him twice is pretty painful sometimes.

Ahemmm Hag your not supposed to listen to Rush for Answers your supposed to listen to Rush for Idea’s and Ideal’s and come to your own conclusion if nothing else Rush is one of the Greatest Teachers ever known to man The problem is folks like you and your ilk hear what Rush is saying BUT you don’t Hear what he is telling you !

And it’s refreshing to most people that do listen and enjoy that they don’t have to read between the lines so to speak they actually hear the Unfettered Truth Rush has flaws Like any other Human but he’s not the Victim or does he portray it Like most in the limelight !

"Senator Hagel saved his harshest criticism for the most popular host on right-wing talk radio, quote":
We are educated by the great entertainers like Rush Limbaugh. You know, I wish that Rush Limbaugh and others like that would run for office. They have so much to contribute and so much leadership. They have an answer for everything. And they would be elected overwhelmingly. The truth is, they try to rip everyone down and make fools of everybody but they don't have any answers.
Shuster then brought on liberal WaPoop columnist E.J. Dionne, who observed, "I would love Rush Limbaugh to run for office: that would be a hoot."

Why should he, (Rush Limbaugh) lower himself to the Sen(ile) "Jeffords" Hagel "level of Incompetent".
Rush, Is helping to rebuild the Conservative (not Bowel :) Movement in the Republic...while he earns his living (and educating the public/citizens/voters on conservatism) while entertaining his listeners....While you (Hagel), lived on the public's dime.

Rush doesn’t need to have answers, that’s the job of the elected. The trouble with those dolts is that they think every issue is the business of the federal government. And the hagels of the government get especially angry that somebody is telling them to butt out and mind the business of the people, and leave the people alone.

"Chuck" Hagel

Another demented leftist apparatchik sucking at the giant tit of the federal government.

A traitor to his party and his nation.

ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING BUT SECURING HIS PENSION AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE RELEGATION OF THE GOP TO PERMANENT MINORITY STATUS AND THE ELECTION OF A MARXIST CRYPTO-MUSLIM AS CIC.

Die screaming you MF.

Rushie should challenge Chuckie to a debate. It’s safe. Hagel will run in the other direction.

Ah, don’t worry bob. McCain will probably be defeated in 2010. The Messiah, BHO, will go to Arizona and campaign for WHOEVER is running against McCain. The very presence of BHO in Arizona will create a tidal wave of support for Candidate X (D).

Of course, McCain will be able to say “I worked with my President, Barack Obama, in many useful ways during my last two years in office. I was bipartisan and listened and supported a Democrat president, something I was very reticent to do while a Republican was in the White House.”

McCain will then spend the rest of his career as a guest on MSNBC, hailed as the “kind of Republican we all like” by Keith Douchermann.
