****I listened to the first 2 hours of Rush today, when you hear it in context on the radio is was a velvet glove attack on Newt.****
Also read the transcript on another thread - I agree with you and don’t understand how some FReepers interpreted Rush’s remarks as pro-Newt. Rush is dead to me.
He has certainly fallen off the “voice of conservatism” mountaintop.
I've no use for him anymore.
“Also read the transcript on another thread - I agree with you and dont understand how some FReepers interpreted Rushs remarks as pro-Newt. Rush is dead to me.”
1:45 minutes of 2 hours was playing audio attack on Newt...and then comments like...”well, it’s true...Abrams was devastating” etc.
Reading the transcript doesn’t give you the full effect of Limbaugh velvety glove attack.
Anybody who didn’t hear it, should listen to it on podcast to see how it was an attack on Gingrich.
...or read the commentary of the people on the live thread here... http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2838185/posts?q=1&;page=101 to see how it was seen as an out and out attack on Newt by Rush.
a small sample “Ive been a big Rush supporter for years but today he is reminding me of Karl Rove when he attacked Christine ODonnell..... and Im liking it not one bit. If Rush had a preferred candidate, he should have went public long before the field got narrowed to this point. Unless, of course, Mitt Romney IS his favored candidate as it appears to be now.”
Same here. If after I hear the audio, it is no better, he's dead to me too.
