Stuck at work meeting quick post, apologies
I guess this is close to the “Kent State moment” they were wishing for.
I’m glad no one was killed.
He ran a I hate the marines site and is a jerk- but we can use this too!
Yhello! Yhello! Yhello!
What is Rush rambling about?
What’s Rush holding back?
Beat you to it! LOL!
Scot Olsen ran the site ( now closed ):
We can use him too!
His un willingness to endorse a candidate.
Is he an anti-war type, or gay or something? (I don’t want to click on his site.)
He is (in his long winded way) getting ready to announce his Retirement after Obama’s re-election! (BOO!!) Sorry to Scare you Freepers....HAPPY HALLOWEEN....
Lee and all her comrades at MSNBC are communists; simple as that.
I’ve listened to Rush since the late 80’s. He’s made endorsements each and every election, both primary and general elections.
All one has to do is listen. No names are needed, as everything that matters is talked about on a daily basis.
If the listener isn’t able to connect the correct name to the issues Rush endorses each and every day they shouldn’t be voting anyway.
How to speak Liberal
I’d love to have a source for the theory Rush just presented, that the stock market gains were due to speculation that Obama would not be re-elected and Ds would lose the Senate. Otherwise you know the spin from the MSM will be that Obama’s economic “plan” is finally working...
Name the candidate RUSH is endorsing.
You can’t because you are lying.
Did Rush cover this yet?
Any comment from OWS? /s
Speaking of the Occupy [insert city here], has anyone here seen anything about "Hot women of the occupy movement"? I heard about it on the news in Austin, but haven't seen anything on FR yet. The pictures I've seen haven't had a single "hottie".
Greetings Thrill Seekers - Tks IMPR for ping
Just read this on local (Tennessee State Freep page)
Have you been reading the headlines for the Army and Navy times? 90,000 to be cut, 3, 000 CPOs with not enough time in for retirement. Not going after retirement invested people. 0 is also going to CONTROL the calories sailors have both at sea and on shore. On top of that the retired over 65 got hit with higher co-pays for meds, and 0 is going for a $200 in 2012 up front fees, and in 2013 a $295 up front fee for TRL. This on top of the Medicare fee increase.
Wonder if Enron consultant Krugman will be there.
When was the I hate Marines site closed, after the head wound?
I wonder where he worked after the Corps
... and what kind of discharge he got?
Yeah, that lady in the clip speaking of OWS having ‘the right to petition their government’ was pathetic coddling compared to how they report on the TEA party
Yes, a lot of it may also be 4th quarter stock market positioning to reap maximum profits while the poor get poorer.
IF true he made BIG money.
Probably in the top 10% or better.
" Olsen, who is originally from Wisconsin, served two tours of duty in Iraq, makes a good living at a San Francisco software company and had a hillside apartment that overlooks San Francisco Bay.

I don’t think he could get out of debating Obama, if he were nominated.
So I don’t know how that strategy can work out in the end.
People have had it....people are fed up.......... and yet they are stuck having to vote for a Republican party that JUST DOESN’T GET IT!!!
I think the caller is right—Rush’s heart hasn’t been into the show since he fell in love/got married.
Herman Cain’s the man:

Whats most important to you in deciding whom you can support as a presidential candidate?
Posted on October 27, 2011 by Kevin DuJan // Cocktail Party, The Soggy Sandwich Society
The 2012 election is a strange one for me, on a personal level, because prior to just last month, I had zero emotional investment in any of the declared candidates.
I have been a supporter of Governor Sarah Palin since 2008 and hoped shed run for president this year; I respect her decision to not enter the race as I expected, but still nurse great disappointment because I believe the Governor would have won not just the nomination but the White House. As a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2003, its deja vu all over again for me, because Hillary was convinced by her own party establishment not to run in 2004 but to wait for another turn and she missed her window for the White House. I hope the same thing doesnt happen to Governor Palin in the end, but wish shed made her move in 2012 when I believe its nearly impossible for Barack Obama to win re-election.
With Palin out of the race, I had to take a look at the declared candidates running for the presidency and pick one of them to support.
The only candidate I had any negative feelings towards was Mittens Romneycare, whom I see as the definitive embodiment of everything thats wrong with the Republican Party today. To understand what alienates so many people from the GOP and keeps many of the bitter, clinging, Midwesterners (as Obama described us) from voting Republican you need only observe Mittens in action. He takes both sides of every issue and stands for nothing but his own election. He claims to have not spent his entire life in politics, conveniently forgetting thats only because hes lost every election he ran in save for this single stint at Massachusetts Governor. Its convenient he forgets this, because hes the Republican Michael Dukakis who created the basis for Obamacare Romneycare while he was in office. The entire Occupy Wall Street astroturfing operation you see in major cities across the country has been orchestrated by ACORN to breed foot soldiers for Obama to tear Mittens Romney apart in a general election since there are just three people I can think of that perfectly fit the caricature of a Wall Street fat cat the Occupoopers believe deserve massive comeuppance: Gordan Gekko (from the movie Wall Street), Mr. Monopoly (the cartoon mascot from the Parker Brothers game), and Willard Mittens Mitt Romneycare.
In 2008, the Left and its agenda-driven media enablers seeded the race with a youthful vibe early on because the plan involved orchestrating the nomination of ancient and decrepit-looking John McCain, so that Barack Obama could win the presidency in a Youth vs. Age election; in 2012, the Left and its agenda-driven media enablers are seeding the race with an Occupy Wall Street vibe this early in the process so that by the time the Left succeeds in picking Mittens Romneycare as the GOP nominee, theyll have mobilized a large and vicious mob to tear him to pieces and secure Obamas re-election.
The Left knows it cant run on Obamas record or that Nobel Peace Prize he won for being awesome in 2009. The only positive attribute ever ascribed to Mittens is that he was a Wall Street businessman a long time ago; the Left is taking this positive away from Mittens, starting now, just as a Mittens nomination for 2012 will take Obamacares disastrous impact on our economy off the campaign table because of Mittens own Romneycare.
The Cocktail Party GOP establishment is foolishly pushing the its his turn! and weve been counting on campaign jobs with him! candidate when having Mittens on the 2012 ticket means that every rightful criticism of Obamcare will be met with a well, Mitt Romney did the same thing in Massachusetts, and in fact is the architect of Obamacare from every Democrat surrogate speaker.
The Romneycare candidacy will be more of a disaster than the lackluster and foolish Washington Generals-inspired non-campaign McCain mustered in 2008.
Why Republicans keep allowing the Left and its agenda-driven enablers to select their presidential nominees is a mystery I just cant seem to solve.
So, Ive known from the beginning that I cannot support Mitt Romney in any way at all. I will not campaign for him, and I will not vote for him, because I will not give my blessing to the suicidal its his turn! stupidity evidenced time and again by the Cocktail Party GOP establishment. With that firmly settled, I needed to take a solid look at the remaining contenders for the nomination.
Here are the five things that were important to me in determining whom I support (please add your own criteria in comments below):
1. I have to personally like a candidate to be able to campaign for her or him in any capacity. Otherwise, the best I can do in an election is write essays or knock on doors and tell people why they should not vote for the other person. Id much rather be pro-something than against-someone.
Considering the above, I took a look at the candidates and determined I genuinely like, on a personal level, the following people:
I have disliked, for many years, the following people on a personal level:
Newt Gingrich (for what he did to his second wife and for sitting on the couch with Nancy Pelosi prostelytizing for the Global Warming Religion)
Rick Santorum (for what he did in Pennsylvania when he was a Senator and lied about his residency status)
I think the following person is creepy:
Jon Huntsman (whom I also believe is the Lefts Plan B and is being positioned as a Ross Perot-style spoiler intended as a third party vote splitter should Obama need that extra help next year)
I think the following persons supporters are largely creepy:
Ron Paul (no offense to my friend Kathleen and others I know who support him but I am just so turned off by all the Paul supporters running around in V for Vendetta masks acting foolish everywhere Dr. Paul goes)
I have a lot of trouble relating to the following person:
Rick Perry (theres just something about the man I dont like, and have to admit his accent makes everything he says sound a little foolish to me)
End result: I could see myself campaigning actively for Cain or Bachmann, could never lift a finger for Huntsman, and find it impossible to ever like on a personal level Gingrich, Santorum, or Perry. I believe Dr. Paul does himself a great disservice in most of his public appearances by behaving the way he does, though 70% of what he says does resonate strongly for me.
2. I can only support a presidential candidate whom I trust to take on the Left directly and show absolutely no mercy when it comes time to make the budget cuts and Cabinet Department eliminations that are needed to save this country from ruin.
With this, the people I trust to absolutely steamroll over the Left are:
Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich (in that order).
I believe Jon Huntsman is an Obama operative only in the Republican primaries because hes been promised hell be the next Secretary of State if Obama is re-elected, so I dont take his candidacy for the GOP nomination seriously. He is also super creepy.
3. I need to believe a presidential candidate will clobber the Cocktail Party GOP establishment as much as she or he will combat the Left.
I think the following people can be trusted to take on the Cocktail Party GOP establishment and end the business as usual and go along to get along attitude from Republican ranks that got us into the mess that were in:
Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman.
I have zero faith in Gingrich combating the establishment because for a long time he was the face of the establishment. I also come back to that couch appearance with Pelosi and his advocacy of the Global Warming Religion. I cant trust Gingrich on this, so he loses points here.
4. I want a presidential candidate who will clobber Barack Obama in the debates next year.
These are the people, in order, who I believe would wipe the floor with Obama:
Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Michele Bachmann.
I have no faith in Rick Perrys debating skills because hes been painfully lackluster so far. That deeply concerns me. I just dont think he can pull off the needed wins in the debates against Obama. At best, both of them would look foolish and the waters would be muddled for many Americans.
Dr. Paul would only keep hurting himself every time he speaks in public, which has been his problem from the beginning.
As noted previously, Jon Huntsman is working for the Obama campaign and would tee up an easy win for Obama in any debates.
5. I want a president whom I believe has the ability to make all the tough decisions in office that will turn this country around and who wont be concerned with what the media says about her or him.
I trust the following people to do what they know to be right regardless of the consequences to their public image and media favor:
Ron Paul, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Newt Gingrich (in that order).
Jon Huntsman, as noted, is just in this race as a stunt engineered by the Left and should not be taken seriously in the least.
End result for all of the above: Herman Cain is the candidate Im supporting, because I like the man on a personal level, Im confident hell take on the Left, I believe hell ignore what the Cocktail Party GOP establishment wants, I know hell clobber Obama in the debates, I trust his ability to make tough decisions and turn this country around, and I believe he doesnt give a damn what the media or anyone else says about him.
After Cain, my runner-up would be Michele Bachmann though Ive always thought Bachmanns destiny is to be Speaker of the House, replacing the wimpy and ineffective John Boehner in 2013.
Newt Gingrich is my third choice and someone I think would make an excellent Vice President under Herman Cain. For anyone else, Gingrich needs to be the Chief of Staff. He would excel in that role like no one in history before him. I think the job was tailor made for him, to be honest.
Id support Rick Perry next, and note that hed be much higher on this list if he didnt keep stumbling in the debates and if his supporters were also not such jerks (if you think I will ever forget what Erik Erikson did on September 30th when he spent the entire day on Redstate.com mocking Governor Palin and her supporters, you are deluded and yes, I think its fair to reflect that sophomoric stupidity onto Perry since Perry chose Redstate as the venue from which to launch his campaign).
Rick Santorums the next pick for me followed closely by Dr. Paul (whod also be much higher if he conducted himself better in public and if his supporters didnt run around in those masks).
Jon Huntsman is an Obama operative and would never in any capacity get my vote.
Interestingly, the 2012 election might end up depending on the Vice Presidential choice for me, in the event the Cocktail Party GOP establishment gets its way and succeeds in nominating John McCain again Mittens Romneycare.
The only way Id ever vote for Romneycare is if Allen West or Herman Cain was on the ticket as the VP choice. This wont happen, since its clear to me Mittens has already promised the VP slot to Tim Droopy Dog Pawlenty for some unknown reason. But I could see myself excitedly campaigning for West or Cain to be VP in the same way I excitedly and enthusiastically campaigned for Palin for VP back in 2008, though I never much liked or trusted McCain.
If Romneycares the nominee but West or Cain (or someone dynamic and trustworthy like them) arent on the ticket, for the first time ever Ill have to sit down and look at EVERYONE running for the presidency and decide whom I think is the most fit for office and who can best reflect those five points above.
I know that person wont be Barack Obama obviously but if its a third party candidate who scores higher on my personal index than Romneycare, then thats wholl get my vote.
I really hope the combined efforts of the Left, the agenda-driven media, the Obama campaign, and the Cocktail Party GOP establishment dont force a worst-case-scenario like this for me, but this is honestly how I think my thought process would work if it did.
What think you?
What criteria do you use to determine your support for the candidates?
I agree for the most part.
What did Rush lead off today's show with? I was busy, and missed his opening monologue. The caller said something about Rush's personal life. Is Rush taking next week off or something?
I wouldn't be surprised...
I missed the very beginning of that, but he was having a conversation wtih Snerdley about things that he would like to share in the show that he’s passionately interested in, but thinks his audience wouldn’t be; conversely, there are things that he feels he has to cover that he is not interested in.
Russia has the VAT TAX too
Hmmm.... thanks. I have Rush 24/7... I'll try to listen to it later (ASAP) and I'll let you know what he says. Geesh, I wonder what he's "not interested in" anymore...
I was doing some research on where the candidates stood six weeks before the first primary in 2007. Here is how it relates:
To count as the same poll this year, you would have to use the November 2007.
Cain is in Giulianis spot.
Romney is in Romney’s.
Newt has McCains spot.
Perry has Fred Thompsons spot.
“...Cain is in Giulianis spot.
Romney is in Romneys.
Newt has McCains spot.
Perry has Fred Thompsons spot.”

Did you like what you heard? What stood out for you?
I’m heading up to Huntsville, AL tomorrow to attend a reception and dinner for him. I’m hoping I’ll shake the hand of the next POTUS.
Curious. Huckabee, from the exit polls showing second choice, hurt McCain the most. I guess I’m not sure what you mean.
