Rush, thanks again.
Let's remember what a great man said.

"Establishment Republicans" Want to Redefine the Term "Conservative"


"Establishment Republicans" are Lying to Us With Threats of a Dire Default

Let's remember:
Someone on another thread said But with the press not doing its job, and the LAME Stream Media trying to silence speech they don't agree with,
we're in a real mess and under attack by an evil force rarely seen in this country.
The Republicans and the God-Given freedoms this country has enjoyed so far, are descending into oblivion.
And the "Establishment Republicans" aren't doing a damned thing to stop it.
The "Establishment Republicans" aren't providing "the boots on the ground" to win.
They're trying to put the public back to sleep, lying to them, in order to keep their power, and "wreck the country as it commits suicide".
So now the "Establishment Republicans" have "fractured their base" and,
because they have taught us "that accepting short-term loss in exchange for long-term gain is the essence of compromise, the essence of politics",
they're going to lose, and lose big, if they don't swing to the hard right wing of what used to be their party.
How many conservatives have re-registered as "Conservative Party" or "Independent" because they're fed up with being lied to?
We've been "treated to one lecture after the other on the need for “compromise” and “patience” ", and we're sick of it.
We don't trust them any longer.

Look, Rush said it best....
So now, because of the Establishment Republicans" there's not just a candle lit, but a bonfire lit ...
in the very heart of the conservatives, and it will burn away the dead wood that is "Establishment Republicans."

Yes, it's time to curse the "Establishment Republicans" for every thing they've NOT DONE!
And CURSE THEM for most of the things they HAVE DONE!

"Attack, repeat, ATTACK!"


"Establishment Republicans" Want to Redefine the Term "Conservative"


DO CONSERVATIVES "ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS" WANT TO WIN IN 2012 OR NOT?

Palin was my first choice, but she dropped out.
Bachmann became my first choice,and she dropped out.
Cain was my second choice, but he dropped our.
Now ... Newt was my second choice, but he challenged Rush.
So now ... Rick Santorum, who use to be my third choice, is now my first choice.

But Romney, Perry, Ron Paul, Huntsman, and Johnson are NOT acceptable,
and if on the ballot for the general election for President or V.P., would cause me to do a write in.


There's no way in hell I can compromise my values.

Jack Kerwick wrote an article on May 24, 2011 titled The Tea Partier versus The Republican and he expressed some important issues that I agree with.



I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
"COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.

The "Establishment Republicans" can go to hell!

Rush misunderstands big time what Newt is really saying. It's an unfortunate reflection on many Republicans that they don't seem to understand it either.

Newt's case is simple:

1) Romney's vaunted "private sector experience", is of a particular kind that's going to represent a huge liability in the general election. Nobody's asserting that Bain Capital's actions were necessarily illegitimate nor unlawful, but it's obvious that Romney was no white knight of heroic, entrepreneurial capitalism.

2) Questions on business ethics are legitimate inquiries that one should have to answer for, especially if they're running for public office—these are not attacks on capitalism, and it's completely goofy that some would construe it that way. Those advocating a "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" attitude towards private enterprise activity, aren't doing capitalism any favors.

What the heck is the matter with Rush? This was irrational and I honestly don’t understand what he was trying to say.

Personally, I hold Rush at least partly responsible for electing Obama because of his stupid “Operation Chaos” stuff in the last election. He spent most of his shows talking about the Dems, never focused on the lousy candidate that was being pushed on us by GOP Central, and got people so confused by encouraging them to vote for Hillary in open primaries that the conservative “base,” as he likes to call them, had no idea what to do about getting a decent GOP candidate.

I used to think he was having problems answering callers because he didn’t hear them very well, but now (with the supposed wonder hearing aids he keeps pushing) I have no idea what he is doing.

Newt went over the line on FoxNews this morning, telling us when Capitalism is ok, and when it’s not. Telling us the difference between profits which are ok and those which are too much. I thought he would find lots of nastiness in the Bain records. Instead he is parroting Oliver Stone from “Wall Street” and portraying venture capitalists like Romney as Gordon Gekko. Newt actually said that capitalists should reduce their profits to share with the workers “who made the profits”. Isn’t that a Leftist position? This is a VERY risky play. Democrats are giddy today. One of them said that the “greedy capitalists” position is no longer a left-wing one, but a centrist one, because of Newt and Perry’s attacks. I am increasingly convinced that we need someone new to come into this race - perhaps someone who has already refused.

I agree.

I believe Romney’s actions in certain cases were illegal. He intentionally drove companies to bankruptcy by overborrowing against their assets while his company siphoned off a huge share of the BORROWED money.

He took advantage of both bankruptcy law and corporate law to achieve his end.

Has no one asked why, if Bain Capital owned, for example, AMPAD, why Bain Capital did not have ITS assets seized in the Ampad bankruptcy in order to satisfy AMPAD’s creditors?

In Rush’s imagination ‘conservatism’ often seems to equate to support for the interests of the corporate suite.

This is a far cry from the traditional conservatism of Russell Kirk and the Southern Agrarians, who possessed a healthy skepticism for the world of big business. Not that they were hostile to it, but they certainly didn’t put the mercantile interests of business on their list of first principles.

Try this quote from Kirk’s ‘The Conservative Mind’:

“The United States had come a long way from the piety of Adams and the simplicity of Jefferson. The principle of real leadership ignored, the immortal objects of society forgotten, practical conservatism degenerated into mere laudation of ‘private enterprise,’ economic policy almost wholly surrendered to special interests—such a nation was inviting the catastrophes which compel society to re-examine first principles.”

This is called “vulture capitalism” and it’s not a good thing. Driving a company into the ground and then feeding off it is not capitalism, except in the most distorted of worlds.

And as for sharing with the workers, yes: give them good wages and good working conditions. Why not? Should the few top execs be the only ones to benefit from a good year...they certainly weren’t the only ones who did the work.

I worked for a big financial services company for several years, and they rewarded everybody in the firm, right down to the mailroom, when they did well. What’s wrong with that?

To be honest, if Newt’s message is that there is a difference between positive, productive capitalism where investors spur growth and innovation to turn a profit for themselves while building a workforce thus producing jobs and a corrupted capitalism that decays the workforce by cynically bleeding companies of wealth and talent before selling off the scraps, then I am for his message.

We knew all along that Obama is going to go full on Class Warfare. Obama will try to paint all capitalists as the latter greedy, evil ilk. Do we want Newt making the counter argument, promoting beneficial capitalism that has historically made this country great, or do we want Romney taking the point on that argument? I go with the gentleman from Georgia.

” Romney’s vaunted “private sector experience”, is of a particular kind “

Bill Gross of PIMCO and Eric Janszen of iTulip, neither of whom could be accused of being anti-capitalist, both have written of a distinction between the finance sector and the productive sector of the economy. Bain Capital belongs to the finance sector.

The productive sector of the economy grows as more things are produced. The standard of living of the middle class historically rose along with the productive economy.

The finance sector grows as asset prices increase. Its growth doesn’t always correspond to an improved life for the middle class. The finance sector used to support the productive economy, but in recent decades their interests often diverged. Instead of fueling the growth of the productive economy the finance sector could make money dismantling American manufacturing or shipping it overseas.

Nothing is wrong with having all workers share in a company’s good business results. In fact, it builds team and commitment.

Bain’s bankruptcy tactic was, in my opinion, illegal. It was not just workers who were injured by their abuse of bankruptcy laws, but also creditors and contractors. All of those took serious losses at pennies on the dollar.

I continue to wonder how Bain Capital controlled these companies but were not liable for their debt out of Bain assets.

How were they able to siphon off millions upon millions in fees from the borrowed money but have to pay with their assets when the bankruptcy was dealt with in court?

But that isn't true here. It was mainly a venture capital firm. The Staples investment was just that, as Kleiner Perkins invested in Google early on. I despise Mittens, but Newt never worked an honest day in his life, and it is a little rich for him to tell us when a capitalist makes "too much". No thank you. We need fresh blood in this race. There is plenty to shred Mittens about with his Mormonism, his illegal alien polygamist grandfather, his being an LDS leader at the time they had a viciously racist doctrine, RomneyCare, gay stuff, etc. We don't need these Occupy Wall Street talking points from Gingrich.

The really perverse result of this episode is that the end result is that due to their disdain for Romney some people on this website are allowing themselves to be pushed to the left by agreeing with Newt’s anti-capitalist sentiment.

I think it is possible to continue to support Newt but disagree with his comments about Romney’s Bain career. Rush mentions that only 2 of 100 company’s were forced into bankruptcy - and do we know the specific circumstances of those companies? My suggestion is to continue to dislike Romney for his flip flopping and liberal positions, but not be suckered by Newt into adding capitalist behaviour to what is already a long list.

The traditional conservatism of Southern Agrarians, are you kidding. They were lock step in line with the New Deal as long as Roosevelt looked the other way on Jim Crow. Who was to benefit from the giant boondogle called the TVA. Hell, guys like Huey Long were even further to the left than FDR. The so-called traditional Southern Agrarian was conservative on Social Issues, but economics, he was a major partner in creating the New Deal. The South was no bastion of Conservatism until recently. Do not buy in to the Liberal story that the old Southern racist pols were Conservative. They were as Left as their Northern compatriots on any issue dealing with Economics.

I don't think Rush "misunderstands big time what Newt is really saying".

To really get a thorough view and understanding of what Rush is complaining about, you need to read:
Rush's main point is
IF Newt's case is as you stated, I'm inclined to agree with you,
BUT, listen closer to Newt's answer to Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends.
Now read Rush's response.

There's a lot more to read, but it's better to go to Rush's article and read it there,
for it will provide Rush's reasons for not liking the way Newt has stated his position.

Rush is right, and this is not good. This is not conservative. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/01/10/newt_sounds_just_like_obama

Venture capital companies invest in the future, and there’s a lot of risk involved. A company that devotes itself to seeking out a weakened company and then savaging it and draining its resources is not a venture capitalist company.

"Mitt Romney needs to be pushed to the right...So whoever's gonna win this thing has got to be pushed to the right...The Republican establishment is going to have to be pushed to the right...Whoever the Republican nominee is, is going to have to be pushed to the right..."

What a creep. Rush sided with feminists against fathers and families for the divorce/cohabitation industry during the '90s, too, so he would naturally be on the side of more spending from debt for socialists like teachers, building officials, land use regulators, social workers, pensioners from such positions, all. Thus, his support for Romney and dishonesty about it.

There can be no lasting fiscal conservatism without moral conservatism. Thievery--even legalized thievery is not a tenet of conservatism.

Capitalism is a system--not a philosophy. It can be used for good (conservative) purposes or evil ("progressive") purposes.

You need to read the supporting information to Rush's article, and read:
Yes, it's possible that Rush's hearing loss might be a small factor, but I don't believe there's any "misunderstanding" on Rush's part.

It's hard to take emotion out of this, because we all get very emotional when we see what this ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF,
and his minions are intentionally doing to OUR country.
But we must keep emotion out of it.
Listen and think. Don't just react.
We mustn't try to play on other peoples' emotions, like the left.
We're better than that.
We can't win if we're NOT conservative.

Like Rush said:
“Operation Chaos” worked like it was suppose to, keeping the Democrats at each other's throat for an additional 6 months.

Try a little harder to understand what Rush is saying.
Read Jay Nordlinger's articles We don't need to use the language of the left, or sound like the left.
We need to BE ... CONSERVATIVE!

Rush was so full of $hit today and this caller wasn't having any.

Today a cabal somewhere told all the minions that it is over. Romney will be the nominee. Everyone get behind him and trash all his opponents. Use the Bain Capital attacks as a vehicle. We can't have our guys attacking Romney, our nominee, any longer.

Rush was first, followed by Hannity. They were reading from the same talking points.

Rush was over the top against Newt. Comments about his ex-wife and Freddie mac were not one bit funny. If I were Newt I'd never talk to Rush again.

Rush making statements about Bain that I doubt he has any real knowledge about. Propping up Romney.

Hannity had Juan McCain on, sucking up to Captain Queeg who of course has endorsed Romney. It was sickening.

Rush and Sean were talking out both sides of their mouths today, so when called on their attacks on Newt, they would point out to the couple positives they had said while really stabbing him in the back the majority of the time.

I guess I am DONE with both of them. (I already fired Beck).

When people have to keep telling me just how Conservative they really are, I begin to wonder.

Our only hope is that the voters don't listen to these pundits and do the right thing. I am not optimistic. Looks like the “FIX” is in.

“The South was no bastion of Conservatism until recently”

Dude, put away the crack pipe. It only makes your yankee mind more benighted than nature created you, and its original state was handicap enough. Huey Long and FDR were not Agrarians, nor were they supported by Agrarians. The last politician the Agrarians admired was likely Jefferson.

While your version of what you think Agrarian conservatism might have been is highly entertaining it doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to reality. Quit using that copy of ‘I’ll Take My Stand’ for a door stop and read it, and then we can have a rational discussion.

Rush is worthless. He NEVER endorses the conservative candidate in the primary and waits until the nominee is elected, then complains the entire time that a conservative isn’t the nominee.

As far as I know, he doesn’t donate very much to elections either, or go about using his name recognition and influence to raise money for conservative candidates.

http://www.newsmeat.com/media_political_donations/Rush_Limbaugh.php

Never a penny’s donation to Bachmann or Santorum or anyone he thinks is conservative.

Talks a good game though.

That is the difference between conservatives and liberals. The liberals are out their street fighting and stealing every possible vote. The conservatives sit back and pontificate.

On every channel tonight/and early evening were talking-heads reciting the same mantra. They must have got a memo. The ONLY one who didn't spout the agenda was Sara Palin; but Fox cut her off mid-sentence to break to Huntsman's victory (???) speech. They were suppose to let Palin finish afterwards, but I wasn't willing to listen to Huntsman or wait around to see IF they let her finish.

Newt stirred up a hellfire! GEAUX NEWT!!!!!!!!!!!

"Mitt Romney needs to be pushed to the right...So whoever's gonna win this thing has got to be pushed to the right...The Republican establishment is going to have to be pushed to the right...Whoever the Republican nominee is, is going to have to be pushed to the right..."

At that point, Rush lost me... and pist me off.

You can push to the right all you want; but you can't change a leopard's spots. GOP "establishment" possibly can be pushed back to the right IF voters refuse to accept being pushed to the left. Otherwise, it's called a third party. Historically, that's what happens. At this point, the current two parties are meshed. And conservatives are being squeezed out as fringed radicals. I'm done compromising to vote left of center; the center keeps getting moved left. Rush knows this. Where was the hailstorm when Newt, Cain, Palin, etc., were being lamblasted? And what the heck is up with all this "it's _______________'s turn" stuff?? IMHO, the game is rigged.

Rush is a leftist RINO who defended Romney,
while putting down CONSERVATIVES,
during the NH Election.

RomneyBOT Rush = supporter of LIARS,
BACKSTABBERS, anti-CONSTITUTIONALISTS
and VULTURE CAPITALISM.
