In answer to your question: Rush Limbaugh takes Ron Paul seriously because Paul’s foreign policy—a foreign policy which is not in the interests of the globocrats who have abused our country’s resources and sovereignty, turned us into a bankster bailing-out paradise, and used our military as a big stick for multinationals and the U.N.—is the foreign policy most Americans support. Most Americans don’t want us in foreign wars unless our soil or our citizens are attacked. We don’t want to pay for the defense of other countries when those countries have their own means to do so (e.g., Korea and Germany) or aren’t our supporters in the first place (e.g., Kuwait and Saudi Arabia). Most Americans want our borders secured now. And all that scares the living crap out of the globocrats who set up this foreign policy of military mission bloat, shrinking national sovereignty, and transferring of power by treaty agreements to international bodies, all moves unapproved by popular accord but by sneaky back-door lobbying and legislation. The power players have spent many years and untold trillions to establish their view that our country’s thousands of troop postings abroad are all that keeps America safe. Rusty Limbaugh is a guy that these folks can call in the chips with whenever they really, really need a mouthpiece.
This is just Rush showing his yellow stripes again. I saw the same noise from others on Fox this morning. Ol’ crazy RP, look, he’s crazy, etc., etc. I suspect Rush and the amen corner of the national press will be making up more tinfoil hat crap right up until the election so as to drive away potential RP votes. God forbid we get a proven constitutionalist into office, and ruin the interests of Limbaugh’s clients with a foreign policy that stops our American military from being used as a police department for multinationals. That, of course, is why members of the military actually support Ron Paul via donations nearly ten-to-one over his closest primary competitors).
And it’s not as if there was ever any doubt Limbaugh would come out swinging against Ron Paul if Paul struck fear into the heart of the globocrats. Rush carried water for Bush the Elder back in the day that a far better option, Pat Buchanan, was running against that globoweenie, and he pushed for Romney against McCain—ROMNEY, the proven leftie who’s better than McCain because...well, because Rush said he was.
Rush is gutless anyway, because he COULD endorse a real conservative candidate when it might make a difference (Bachman, now, for example) but doesn’t. Instead he just dances around with the not-Romney crowd and now the not-Ron-Paul crowd and refuses to pick a date. What a complete wuss.
Or, Rush recognizes insanity when he sees it. With RP it’s hard to miss.
Limbaugh never endorces in the primary.
Limbaugh does not take Paul seriously because Paul is delusional.
Most Americans understand defense, well those who do not support Paul anyway.
Who is the constitutionalist you are talking about?
What military supports Paul, paulbots say that and can show a few people that do, but I can tell you that my family who is in the military (special forces, Navy, Air Force) think he is a nut case.
Of course Limbaugh fears Paul, Paul is dangerous and delusional, anyone with a thinking brain can see that.
Just to name a few items.
There you go again trying to make sense in a world of GOP global imperialists. The elite just bring up the scare tactic of international threat and all other issues are forgotten, and the reactionaries chase the bait. Wait and see, Romney will eventually be the one with a plan that best seems to take on Iran, the knucklehead Republican voters will flock to him and he will be the nominee. Once again we will have been suckered, and Obama will get another four years.
Back in 1996 Rush was used to help take out Pat Buchanan by effectively labelling him a kook. Ever since then I have believed that when it gets down to nut crackin time Rush will always perform the role of GOP elitist shill. No matter what he says he is in bed with the elite or he has been compromised by them.
