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.
