Rush Limbaugh: I really think Trump is running
WND ^ | April 18, 2011 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 04/18/2011 1:10:42 PM PDT by RobinMasters

PALM BEACH, Fla. – Will Donald Trump actually take the presidential plunge and run for the White House in 2012?

Radio giant Rush Limbaugh now believes the real-estate tycoon and television personality will.

"Up until Friday, I didn't think so. I thought there were other things behind this," Limbaugh said on his program today. "And I still don't know, still into wild-guess territory. But now if I had to put money behind the guess, I would say he's running. I really think he is. As of now I think in his mind, he's running. Now, with Trump, anything can happen between now and that day that he says he's going to announce. ... I think he's gonna do it."

Thanks Rush for the certainty of equivocation.

I listened to Rush today and he was NOT confident in his prediction. He was on FIRE though about Obama not giving a poop about what’s good for the country, just for his big special interests.

What I heard was that Rush thinks Trump is going to run and that Rush is pleased he is running. Rush shies away from endorsements but you can tell he likes Trump

Not sure it makes a difference. Trump is already thoroughly exposed as the non conservative he is; in fact he’s looking - judging by past statements - like he’s a liberal, if anything. But he is NO Conservative. And I’m sure he’ll have second thoughts once the media exam of his empire starts to flush out things that don’t exactly flatter him. He’s a One Trick Pony: All Birth Certificate All The Time. Even if Trump manages to secure enough heat onto the issue to make a serious dent to Obama - denting Obama has ZERO to do with how credible he would be as a Commander In Chief.

“Is Trump a conservative?”

Not only is he NOT a Conservative, he’s a Hillary Liberal.

If he runs as a Republican, or rather they allow him to run as a Republican he’ll be a major RINO.

More than likely will run as an Independent I believe, because I think he’s running as a spoiler for the purpose to Ross Perot the election for a Democrat be it Obama, or Hillary, whichever comes out on top of the fracas I see forthcoming.

Trump is already thoroughly exposed as the non conservative he is; in fact he’s looking - judging by past statements - like he’s a liberal, if anything.

He has consistently taken a good number of positions that are conservative -- eliminating the national debt, school choice, tight border security, pro-death penalty, increasing spending on the military and allowing citizens to opt out of social security.

He also supported Canadian style socialized health care, gun control laws and has been pro-abortion.

I doubt Rush and Trump are 'buddies' or that Limbaugh has any 'inside track' on Trump's plans. Trump appeared on Rush's program because it has a huge audience and Trump loves an audience. Donald Trump is playing 'conservative' these days and an appearance on Limbaugh's program was almost compulsory. However, Rush didn't endorse Trump, he simply said that he thought Trump was going to run, something many FReepers, including this one, agree with.

Trump is entertaining but I don't trust him. I think his 'conservative' awakening is a pose that he'll shed when it's convenient for him to do so. I suspect that Rush finds Trump interesting but would not endorse him - or any candidate. However, Rush often speaks well of Sarah Palin. That shows sound judgment (translation: he agrees with me). .

Isn’t it sweet that the media would flush out things about Trump, while after 2 1/2 years, they still haven’t done it to the poser in the WH?

The media in this country makes me sick.

Trump is not ideological pure! But if I had his money I could live with a little impurity here and there. Yap, $2200 million can overcome a lot of short comings lol. He is also the least PC of those running.

I can’t answer that one for you, nor Rush as I quit listening to him back in the ‘90’s due my hearing got so bad.

I only have time to read, and participate here at FR, so I don’t read his transcripts etc., so I don’t know if he’s doing one of his pranks, or what.

If anybody knows Trump is a Liberal phony, or a would be RINO, or that he’s in the bag for Hillary it would be Rush, so he’s up to something me thinks, and it will come out when he’s ready.

Trump has said if he runs he will run as a Republican. He has backed off the flip comment that he would run as an independent if he did not win the Republican primary. If he wants to run I say let him. Let’s listen to what he and all the other GOP candidates have to say and then judge for ourselves who is the one to beat Barry. We have to win in 2012. Losing is just not an option.

No, he falls squarely in the RINO calls.

Which makes him different from any of the other GOP front runners how?

Good grief - after all the info that has come out some people just can’t admit they were snookered. None of the republican candidates are as liberal as trump and none of them sent money to Ted Kennedy and supported John Kerry. Trump was initially against a partial birth abortion ban until he got some info on it. He supports increased taxes on all Americans vis tariffs, taxing the rich’s net worth and universal health care. He’s a liberal.

If all you want is a macho candidate with a big fat mouth, blond hair and cajones you could always support Hillary. -):

Trump is currently a lightning rod that will take some of the heat off Sarah. Let him break ground for a while. I’m sure Rush realizes it is good for content. If Trump can get conservative themes into the national conversation, good for him. That doesn’t mean I want him for POTUS.

Exactly, I am all for Trump running, I may not vote for him for the nomination, but I think he will bring some important issues to the campaign that would not otherwise be there, especially our trade relations with China.

I listen to Rush every day. He likes Trump... they play golf every now and again. He has also made certain remarks that point to the fact that Trump has a past and will have to answer for that past in no uncertain terms. Rush also stated that the first Candidate that attacks obama head on like Trump is doing now, will walk away from the rest of the field. He knows that Trump will not get the nomination even if he does run.

The day that he interviewed Trump for the first time, he received many callers telling him that Trump was bad... not a conservative. Rush said that if Trump runs... he will have to answer a lot of questions about his past... and that there certainly were some major things in his past he would have to answer for. It is obvious that Rush understands that Trump cannot win the nomination due to his past and the number of things that will come back to haunt him.

Like most of us... he encourages Trump to say the things that he has been saying because it is forcing others to see the success in this tactic (contrast that with the rove/mclame style). Listen to Rush every day... you will understand exactly where his head is. Maybe you already do?

I think Trump will run if (1) he thinks he can win, or (2) he thinks he can gain power somehow by running.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Why is Rush suppressing the truth about Trump, his shocking and very recent liberal comments, which Mark Levin so clearly exposed? I love Rush, he’s #1 in my book.

But I know he’s aware of this and won’t comment on it. Why not??? Rush, what’s up?

Trump’s audio clips, played on the Mark Levin show:

So people exposing Trump's record are trolls now? Funny, those who exposed Obama's record were called patriots. But hey, if you want to ignore the blatant liberal past and pretend Trump's a conservative, go for it.

Trouble is, he isn't any different than Romney. Oh, he has more money. Trump said so.
