You are NOT the only one that feels this way. Rush was my initiation into understanding conservatism, not very many years ago, like alot of the others here. But this last year I have begun to notice he is just phoning it in... and when he was hinting about 2ifbytea before he actually announced it, I felt sure it was going to be a real conservative cable network with some of his rich buddies and real conservatives... since he often says this is the most important election of our lifetime and in America’s history. His answer to the most important election in America’s history was to open a tea company trading off a true patriot’s namesake, and make his wife CEO. He did that with his other wives, also.
Only I think I have figured it out: Rush supports Romney, he endorsed him in 08, and he may fight with the media because it gets his name mentioned, but he won’t go against his rich friends and support Newt, he won’t risk getting kicked of some dinner-party-invite list of the rich and famous.
If someone convincingly knows why my summary isn’t correct, I would appreciate if they would post it here, as it makes me very very sad.
Since the debate on Thursday, Romney has gained significant traction in Florida with the influence-peddling allegations against Newt. The number of stories in the media about Newt's role at Freddie Mac has grown.
Romney campaigned on it all weekend. He appeared in front of foreclosed homes with the former homeowners to slam Newt for not blowing the whistle on Freddie Mac's practices. Newt has been damaged by the allegations because Floridians are still angry over and feeling the consequences of the 2007 housing crisis.
The FR article about Romney's affordable housing push in MA went up mid-afternoon on Friday and not a single conservative news organization or show has picked it up. By comparison, the FR exclusive on Journolist membership was picked up within hours. We know they monitor FR.
If Newt's alleged role in the housing crisis is newsworthy, then so is Romney's more significant role. Will conservative news media report on it before Floridians vote on Tuesday? I doubt it.
Rush needs to endorse Newt when his endorsement will matter, NOW. Waiting for the general election to endorse is a fools choice. If Newt does not get the nomination, we will have a choice of Obama or Obama light (Romney). Rush, get your head out of your backside. This is the most critical election in over a century.
SP has been a large let-down, and RL has underwhelmed me for years .. not that either of them give much of a damn.
Those brass rings they've grabbed hold of must be coated with some serious epoxy . . .
There it is again! I hear this repeated 10 times a day.
Does anyone have any proof this is true about FOX contracts?
I suspect its not. Just something people speculate and repeat over and over.
Here’s a story about Hannity endorsing Hatch.
The GOP-E has made it clear that they want to kick us Tea Party types to the curb—that they think we are just useful idiots. Well, I have news for the GOP-E: Romney will NEVER get my vote!
If Romney is the nominee, I’m goin’ rogue. *pffffft* to the jokers in the RNC/GOP.
Excellent! will send it to as many as possible. Thank you for fighting the good fight.
If there was another bomb to drop on Newt, WIllard would have used it. He is desperate to win Florida.....Look at how much money he’s spent....
This is great! We need all the conservative muscle we can get to take a stand for conservatism and for Newt! No time to lose!
Right on Jim. Romney is a hard core liberal.
If I were Rick Santorum, I would reassess my priorities in light of my daughter's worsening condition over the weekend. His wife and family need him to focus on them not the country.
(No, I do not mean that God allowed Bella to get worse as a sign that he should drop out of the race.)
Just the way to do it! Call “em out.
Thank you JIM, right on the money!!!
I am reminded of Reagans 1964 time for choosing speech.
Rush we are at that point. Time to stand up and
be counted for what you espouse daily or continue
with the Vichy Republican establishment.
Its a time for choosing. Which will it be Rush?
The problem with certain public figures taking that position this time around is that they've been screaming and beating their proverbial chests about how much danger the country is in and how we're not going to recover if we allow big-government socialism to gain anymore ground.
If we're really in that much danger, and I suspect we are, then they have an obligation to stand up against socialism ... whether it comes from the left or the right.
Romney & Barry Soetoro = 2 empty suits, taking this great country down the rat holes by Alinsky’s tacticts which Romney’s father told the son to listen to very carefully, hmmm!!!
Ah. Yes, you have it covered.
