Posted on 09/28/2011 9:18:22 PM PDT by tsowellfan
RUSH LIMBAUGH: My friends, do not doubt me. I know this is going to shock many of you, and maybe disappoint a lot of you. But when you talk about the Republican establishment -- and you've read their pieces today -- you know what I'm talking about: The columnists, the magazine directors, editors, publishers, whatever, they are reaching and searching for a counter to the conservatives. They don't want Herman Cain getting the nomination; they don't want Perry getting the nomination; they don't want Bachmann getting the nomination. The Republican establishment does not want a conservative getting the nomination...

We conservatives have to take away the GOP from the “moderates” and liberals.
Rush is right except Perry. I think they’d accept Perry.
Who’s the conservative establishment exactly? I might put Rush in it. Bill Kristol spoke very highly of Herman Cain on Special Report and Fox News Sunday last week. Previously he played a big role in promoting Palin for VP. He seems pretty establishment conservative, but I don’t see him rooting for Romney.
Grover Norquist? I expect he’s not a Romney guy either.
So who exactly are these establishment Republicans? Michael Steele? George W. Bush?
The GOP establishement are comprised of liberals. Period.
It's time to stop thinking that the sixty years of fascist majorities in Congress were the norm because the democrat fascist party is too strong to defeat. We have to destroy the fascist democrat party as a national political force and we have to do it NOW!
The democrat party is now and always has been the party of slavery, sedition, treason, secession, civil war, KKK terrorism, Jim Crow laws, eugenics laws, constant voter fraud, constant voter intimidation, anti-Semitic immigration restrictions (in response to Nazi Nuremberg laws), advocates of titles of nobility for protected classes of citizens who are above the law, creators of anti-Christian mythology, creators of the welfare plantation system, advocates of infanticide and euthanasia as well as being the party that designed, implemented, and fights to lavishly fund the systematic, eugenics driven, mass murder of minority infants. The democrat party has to be so thoroughly destroyed as a national political party that it is no longer a factor in national politics. Refusing to support less than pure alternatives over a pet peeve, sitting out elections, or doing anything that keeps you from helping or influences others to not help rid ourselves of these parasites while we're force fed democrat arsenic, is either deliberate democrat supporting fifth column activity or your personal agreement that we should commit national suicide. The entire democrat machine, including both government employee unions and the democrat academic rewards and propaganda infrastructure needs to be fought until, to paraphrase Bull Halsey, “ ... democrat is only spoken in hell”.
Bill Kristol talked up Cain last week to drop Perry. Today he wants Christie in the race to take down Cain.
He’s the worst.
They should- Perry is a fiscal Conservative and a social liberal. Pro amnesty. Pro illegal alien.
Rush: that point is so obvious one need not even comment upon it. Everything the Tea party people force Bonehead to take a conservative stand against Zero, he looks as though someone called and told him his car was on fire.
the question is why?
Morning traitor Joe has trashed Perry all along
is said Herman Cain isn’t gonna win anything
Palin ain’t running, Cain won’t make it past the spotlight, Perry’s been flaming out. We’re gonna end up with Romney unless someone else enters - soon.
Palin. But you’re right. Anyone but her would be beholden to the norm, imho. It’s going to be fun watching Palin wreak havoc on the norm.
False. One of the most persistent lies on FR these days. The ignorance here is embarrassing to me as a FReeper.
Texas Governor Rick Perry says Obama's plan to grant Amnesty to 13 million Illegal Aliens who jumped the line is "Assinine" Report By ericdondero on Nov-16-08 5:16am
I’ve been to St. Paul- didn’t see anything that looked liked that. Most of the females looked like lumberjacks.
In what way is Perry a social liberal?
Ive posted this a number of times and do so again inasmuch as THIS is a constantly recurring problem and some may not grasp how widespread it us.
Over the years when, to steal a line from Billy Joel, I wore a younger mans clothes I was involved with several pretty solid conservative candidates for Congress. One was a Democrat (Lawrence Patton McDonald) because that was the only way he could win in that district. Those old-timers who know Larrys record will tell you that he was a solid an anti-communist America Firster and more Republican than the Pubbies in nearby districts at the time. (His mothers cousin was General George Patton from whom he got the middle name and his incredible resolve and love of this country.)
Those other candidates ran as Republicans. Because I was a rabid Bircher back then (still am philosophically!), those candidates had to pass my rigid litmus test or I went looking for someone who did. For that reason, I hooked up with what the TRADITIONAL country club Pubbie establishment types believed were too radical for their refined tastes.
As those campaigns began to unfold and it became clear to the country clubbers that these guys 1) had a shot and 2) were pretty independent thinkers who would be hard to keep on the reservation once they got sworn in, the local Pubbies communicated that information to the Republican National HQ types who rather quickly sent in campaign professionals ostensibly to lock up the impending victory.
Instead, in nearly every case to which I was privy, these professionals proceeded to TORPEDO our guys campaign in subtle but effective ways.
From that experience I can tell you that the Pubbies at the HQ in D.C. would rather have a Democrat win a given district than have a pubbie up there who would embarrass them by refusing to follow the party line.
If YOU become involved in campaigns for solidly conservative, America and Constitution loving, hard-nosed, independent thinking candidates in 2012 and beyond and I pray many of you do — please DO NOT trust any of those folks from GOP HQ in Washington. If they want to send you no-strings cash for your campaign, take it. If, however, they suggest sending in one of their professionals, tell them to fuggetaboutit.
They ARE WHO GOT US INTO THIS MESS AND THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND!!!!
