A Conservative Ascendency: Utah Sends Anti-RINO Message
EIB / Rush Limbaugh ^ | 2010-05-10

Posted on 05/12/2010 11:18:41 PM PDT by rabscuttle385


RUSH: Heron Lake - and I must admit, I did not know there were lakes in New Mexico, but here's a guy that lives on one, Dave, great to have you on the program. Hi.

CALLER: Good day. Yeah, I wanted to bring up the subject of Utah. They threw out Bennett in the primary.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: Is this an ongoing thing that, say, Schumer, Waxman, or McCain better start thinking about. It's not a Democrat thing or Republican thing, the people are -- pardon the pun -- pissed. They're throwing all of these people that think that hands across the aisle is a thing that they should do all the time. People want people that are gonna represent them. Not tell them how things are going to be, whether you're Republican or Democrat, you're going to have to look out for your seat, because people are pissed.

RUSH: Yeah. Thanks. That's twice there. And this, by the way, proves and demonstrates the power of the tea party, ladies and gentlemen. Now, I'm going to tell you something, though, don't fall into a trap here. The media is out there saying it's anti-incumbent. It's anti-RINO and anti-Democrat. It is not anti-conservative. It is anti-RINO. Here. Bennett was a RINO. I have evidence. I have three sound bites from people who are shocked and ticked off that he lost. David Brooks, E. J. Dionne, and Tom Brokaw. Tell me where we went wrong here? Here's Brooks.

BROOKS: This is a damn outrage, to be honest. I mean, this is a guy who was a very good senator, and he was a good senator and a good conservative, but a good conservative who was trying to get things done. The Wyden Bennett Bill, which he co-sponsored, if you took the healthcare economists in the country, they would probably be for that bill ideally. Nobody liked the TARP, but we were in a complete economic meltdown and sometimes --

RUSH: Okay, that's enough of that. We gotta squeeze these all in before the break. Here's E. J. Dionne Jr. on Meet the Press.

DIONNE: Somethings happening inside the Republican Party that I think in the long run won't be good for the Republican Party.

RUSH: Stop the tape. E. J., tell me you really care about what's good for the Republican Party. Okay, so there's E. J. Dionne Jr., big liberal columnist, Washington Post, and Tom Brokaw on Scarborough's show morning on Mess NBC.

BROKAW: He was having a hard time getting in to Republican meetings around the state. He'd have to kind of knock on the door and say, "Can I come please talk to your group?" When I first began to read and hear about that I was absolutely stunned because no one has better kind of gold standard credentials as a Republican in the state of Utah --

RUSH: Right. Stop the tape. With people like you. This is not anti-incumbent. What's happening here Tom and E. J. and David is a conservative ascendancy. Get ready for it.

Hatch is up in 2012. Maybe he could be persuaded to retire.

Something happens to elected officials after a long time in DC.
Orin Hatch USED to be a staunch conservative and now he is like Juan McCain.

The End Of the Right?

By E. J. Dionne Jr.

Is conservatism finished?

Conservatives Finish 2009 as No. 1 Ideological Group

January 7, 2010

conservatives (40%) outnumbered both moderates (36%) and liberals (21%) across the nation in 2009.

Why newspapers are failing nationwide. Deaf, dumb and blind. I used to read newspapers and listen to people like Brokaw and Rather. That was before I knew that they were liars.
