Skip to comments.A 'Rush Is the Leader' TV Ad
Posted on 03/03/2009 4:12:09 PM PST by redk
Continuing the newfound theme of liberals proclaiming Rush Limbaugh the leader of the GOP (more on that here), activist group Americans United for Change has announced it will begin airing a TV ad dedicated, almost solely, to making that claim, calling on Republicans to reject Limbaugh's politics.

Not only is Rush the leader of the Republican Party, according to the ad, Sarah Palin, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, RNC Chairman Michael Steele, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are specifically NOT the party's leaders, at least as indicated by the raucous applause Limbaugh received at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in DC over the weekend. (Limbaugh, it should be noted, is no stranger to Americans United for Change ads--the group has used his "fail" comment since early February to blast Republicans for opposing President Obama's stimulus.) The ad will air in DC and on national cable as early as Thursday through the end of next week, the group says.
Thanks for getting the word out, Sheesh! such singlemindedness. However, you are wrong.
It will be the single biggest mistake they ever make...(liberals, that is...)
the liberals, the media, Fox News and Ron Paul have all picked up the meme from the White House and ran with it. This was nothing more than a Rahm Emmanuel talking point and see where its going?
its all beeen planned.
I was asked if I was a “Rush freak” by one of my co-workers about a month ago. The dems are emboldened and have finally started attacking Rush publicly. The dems are viscious.
its a coordinated attack. there is a point to this.
they are going to bring down another shoe once this becomes generally accepted. count on it.
I refuse to be drawn into a discussion of who the leader of the GOP is by Democrat clowns.
This reminds me of the propaganda bullhorns and PA systems used by communists, only taken to a whole other level. Someone should lampoon their “re-education” tactic.
Does anyone have the number to these folks? Is there any group that will step up to counter these? There’s nothing wrong with what Rush said in his CPAC speech. It was a home run! I’ll take him as the leader of the GOP anyday.
The Dems are just jealous.
It was Obama who first said that Republican members of Congress shouldn’t listen to Rush Limbaugh. They weren’t in the first place. Rush is not an issue, no matter how much the Democrats want to make him one.
Juan Williams admitted to Bill O’Reilly that he was becoming more conservative, and that the real viciousness is on the Left. He has never seen the same viciousness on the Right. The light is going on for Juan.
Sheesh, these guys are dumb. Before the year is out, Rush will have an audience of 100million and the dims will be crying "uncle". Or, they will have shut Rush down and will be hunting the rest of us in the hills.
They picked our candidate, they picked our president, now they want to pick who our leader is.
In this case though, I think they’re right and I’m thankful for Rush.
They will live to regret doing this. The more publicity Rush gets, the more minds he will change.
Good, I hope they keep it up. They will be putting one more nail in their own coffin.
Who is Americans United for Change? Who is paying the bills?
It’s a distraction to try and get people off the main issue the TANKING ECONOMY.
Juan, though liberal, is a fair and good man.
I am pleased to hear that.
Americans United for Change is an extreme liberal group.
Kewl .. this will backfire on them big time.
At least we know he has a brain. Just like, love him or hate him, Dick Morris. The truly smart can only become more conservative because it’s clearly what is right.
George Soros, owner of the Democrat Party, and of the government of the U.S.A. as well, making progress through his Vice Regent Obama toward his goal of channging the U. S. A. info the Socialist Republic of America.
At this point, I would rather be known as a “Rush freak” any day than someone who was foolish and voted for Obama. I wonder if any of those naive voters are figuring out what they had done and are ashamed to admit they voted for him yet.
I’d ask anyone who asked me if I was a “Rush freak” if they believed in the 1st Amendment....and, I’d also ask...what IS a Rush freak?
Probably getting good ol’ ACORN money. Zero’s plan to have our tax dollars pay for our own destruction.
Keep it coming Rahm!!
Then there is only one answer to that question. "ABSOLUTELY!" And then I'd back it up by saying "I'm an American who backs anyone who espouses strong conservative principles. Obviously, you'd rather see this country go down the drain."
Damn straight. Rush made zer0 look like a fool when he attacked, now he's sending out his minions to do it for him.
What an idiot, I don't think he realizes just what kind of "support" Rush is going to get. Dude's gonna start a war any way you look at it.
I heard David Frumm on Hugh Hewitt show.
He really appears to detest Rush. He said “we” will never win with Rush making racist comments. He said Americans by in large( and esp women) hate Rush.We need to reach out to these people if we are going to win, and Rush is the reason we are failing to connect with these voters.
It was astonishing.
You should have asked your retarded lib friend if he was an Obama freak.
They hate Rush because he has the audacity to speak the truth about liberalism. We all know how much truth hurts...
The left is scared to death of Rush because he makes so much sense that anyone can understand. Saying he wants everyone to succeed and he wants to protect the constitution freaks them out. It’s ridiculous.
tell him you’re a freedom freak.
Excellent! Thank you.
As for me and my house, we are staying on the BRILLIANT side of right, with the facts and the truth...RUSH 98%+....
When you can shut up haughty liberals it’s just an inner thrill that I can barely hold in until I get into my car or home and burst out laughing!
RUSH, RUSH, RUSH, RUSH, RUSH, RUSH!!
in case you wish to catch up on Soros
It’ll backfire. :)
I’ve been asked, too. I smile and say “Rush is awesome.” :)
Dumbass DemoPervs don’t even realise their new gollem attack ads ain’t got no teeth. “Rush Limbaugh is their leader!” (smile) yeah...sure he is! (snicker)
D.L hugely reads the headlines and thinks he knows shit. Going around accusing people of being “Nazis” when he doesn’t even know enough, to know that it is the *DemoKlan* that are using Nazi tactics...and his ignorant support of the Left, is him being a step-n-Fetchit for the rise of the next party of enslavers..It’s the *dems* that think they have the right to tell everyone else what they can think, feel, eat, say, believbve...and they viciously attack anytone who disagrees with them...Bill by bill, Law by Law, they take away everyones rights to make up their own minds, and live by any other rules than the ones they set up...He and Whoopie are *allready* slaves in gilded cages to the DemoKlan plantation.
And now today, hugely says that there shouldn’t be any “incediary rhetoric”...( b wich he means *Rush Linbaugh* should be muzzled....But *we’re* the nazis, racists, and bigots...
We should definitely agree with the liiberal ads. To argue with them would be giving them the infighting they are trying to foment. Rush is awesome, and yes, he is the number one spokesman for the conservatives around the world. Rush is the king of words. O-boy is a piker by comparison.
LOVE IT! Rush is always on the side of right. He has what is missing these days in politics (and in academia): COMMON SENSE.
I Listen to RUSH! or...
I VOTED for Obama!
I’d rather admit to VOTING for RUSH!!
