Rush Limbaugh on the Tea Party movement the Republican party and the conservatives Sarah Palin her Daytona beach appearance and McCain. Rush Limbaugh says that Sarah Palin is not a Tea Partier , she is a republican first and foremost, Rush Limbaugh believes that Sarah Palin owes McCain the fact that she is what she is today and that it is a payback time for her to McCain , it is an obligatory payback says Rush Limbaugh.
I wonder if he’ll spend 6 minutes today defending Fred Thompson?
Hopefully people will listen to it.
She ran with a RINO. She campaigns for a RINO.
Put your thinking caps on.
Please ping the Palin list. the trolls will be here shortly telling everyone to pay no attention to Rush.
Supporting McPain, who is a major part of the REPUBLICAN problem is NOT something Palin should do. McPain certainly didn't do much to support her; nor should she compromise her principles as “pay back” for a failed RINO run as VP.
Who was the Freeper that asked Rush to respond to this question? I have heard him on before. I think he’s from Florida.
Why? Is Fred Thompson under daily attack?
“She ran with a RINO. She campaigns for a RINO.
Put your thinking caps on.”
McPain has also made disparaging remarks about Palin. It’s time to give McPain the boot!
I agree with Rush’s take on this.
She would run again as an “R”.
She is returning a favor. If McCain
loses, she will endorse JD Hayworth.
I suspect JD knows all this too.
Seems to me I recall Limbaugh was fine with Santorum endorsing Specter over Toomey. Didn’t understand that, either.
My take would be just the same. Sarah’s who she is because of who she is, but she has the prominence she has because of John McCain. Best thing he ever did, and he probably didn’t mean to.
Irony’s pretty ironic, sometimes.
Note to Palin: Remember Santorum....
So what if he does.
Rush also pushed RINO Romney on us during the primary. Look how that turned out.
Rush may be wrong only 4 percent of the time, but this falls into that 4 percent. ;)
So did Reagan.
Palin's support of McCain does not tarnish her at all.
She said she was going to campaign for him (long before J.D. declared) and she's not going to go back on her words.
That said, Hayworth should still be supported.
I pose a logical question:
For those of us belonging to the Christian faith, if the Archangel Gabriel were to this very day appear in the Heavens above us, and announce that our Lord and Master Jesus Christ loved, respected and intended to support the fallen angel formerly known as Lucifer, for ‘all’ have fallen short of the Glory of God and are in need of redemption, who among us would dare to say ‘the Lord can’t DO that!!!’?
Sarah Palin, devout Christian and Patriot has chosen to support John McCain, no less than Rush Limbaugh arises to defend her decision, therefore does that make someone supporting J.D. Hayworth unwise, rebellious and disloyal?
Stand with me, my fellow pretzels, let us find new ways to twist ourselves into ever more amazing patterns of explanation and justification.
I have to agree with Rush. It’s a sign of her character for her to campaign for McCain.
It would be a sign of McCain’s character for him to pull out of the election and retire.
But I have my doubts that McCain is really a man of the highest character after his behavior during the 2008 campaign which did not permit Palin from speaking out on 0bama and his lapsing into “Mr Bipartisan I’m really a Progressive” -ness. McCain’s fighting spirit was destroyed in Vietnam and the 2008 election proved it.
