RUSH: St. Louis. This is Greg. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. God bless you, buddy. Been listening to you for a long time, and, like you, I'm an expert at what I do. I've got a painting company, funny story, I have the ability to listen to you at different job sites, particularly residential job sites, and it's a hoot when I'm at a liberal's house painting with Rush Limbaugh on. It drives 'em crazy.
RUSH: I can imagine that. I've heard such stories, guys on ladders with the radio on where the owner can't get to it. The wife, in particular, just goes batty.
RUSH: Husbands, too. They can't do anything about it other than fire the painter, which they don't want to do.
CALLER: Right. Yeah. It's hysterical. It's really amusing. It's funny. I can almost tell neighborhood by neighborhood, you know, what kind of clientele I have and whether or not I'm gonna drive 'em crazy.
RUSH: How can you do that? How can you tell by neighborhood what kind of clientele you're gonna have?
CALLER: Yeah, well...
RUSH: Okay, you don't want answer, I caught you. The host caught you. Yeah, yeah, yeah, expert painter knows when he's going to a liberal neighborhood or a conservative neighborhood.
CALLER: You can tell.
RUSH: You can tell. Yep. Whether you got a car on concrete blocks in the front yard or not, I know.
CALLER: Yeah, right, right, especially election time when all the signs get put in the front yard, it's even more of a hoot.
CALLER: But, hey, the reason why I'm calling, you know, you're the guy that I listen to the most, and you're the guy that I get all my information from. I get why you couldn't endorse someone, but, boy, it sure would be helpful for me and your listeners for you, at the end of the day, say, "Here's the guy," because you're the expert, man. You know who's full of it, and you know who's legitimate, and it would be awesome if you would just, you know, come out and say, this is --
RUSH: Ah, see, wait a minute. You say you understand why I don't endorse. In fact, you said you understand why I can't endorse. And then you very sneakily and slyly try get me to endorse. If I tell you who I'm voting for, that's an endorsement. You're trying to tell me I can do that without actually endorsing anybody. Snerdley, I'm gonna tell you something. 'Cause Snerdley's behind this, folks. If I don't shut this down every call is gonna be somebody demanding or trying to pressure me. Snerdley is sitting in there thinking that I can change the outcome of elections if I would just say so. He really believes that.
You and I both know that's absurd, but he believes it. I'm just telling you, you could give me two more hours of this, I'm not gonna tell you. It isn't going to happen, because when this is all over, I am not gonna be in a position where my credibility is such that I can't support whoever the nominee is. 'Cause I am not voting Obama. I'm not supporting Obama. So whoever wins this, I can't sit here and pigeonhole myself in such a way that I don't have credibility supporting whoever the eventual nominee is, because Obama is the end result. I'll tell you right now, I'm not voting Obama. I'm the expert. And that's really all you need to know.
I’ve moved past Rush. His mouth just does not inspire me any more. Old, tired, blowhard. Don’t listen to him any more.
Yeah right. Rush has taken the easy way out with the de facto support of Santorum. He has been trying to ride the fence in this election between the Tea Party Conservatives and the establishment RINOs. I thought he would have more guts than he has shown. Sarah Palin sure is not afraid to say what is on her mind. GO NEWT GO!
Fine, don’t endorse anyone. Just stop acting dumb when it comes to Romney. Go after him. Mark Levin is the only one who’s doing so at this point, and he deserves respect for it.

Ah, but we have another thread where a FReeper is telling us Rush is endorsing Santorum.
He has, repeatedly.
He's too busy talking about how influential he is and selling Ice Tea. His last comment of the day did sound like a back-handed endorsement of Rick.
Rush must be an elitist, Establishment RINO, eh? < s/o >.
At this point (other than ignoring the negatives on Romney) Rush has thrown plenty of bones to the Santorum camp, and the end result of this is an indirect endorsement of Romney. Encouraging Santorum to stay in the race is only hurting Gingrich, and it’s a chief strategy of the RINO establishment.
He may be considered an expert in what I have no idea but he’s not a Patriot. This is a Patriot.
Before being hanged, Nathan Hale said: “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”
Rush won’t even speak for his country unless he knows he’s right. But who needs his endorsement? Don’t people have minds of their own? Can’t they even see the huge difference between Newt and mitt? It really isn’t rocket science that they need another’s input.
Why and who would be drawn to a KNOWN LIAR like Mitt? An initiator of gay marriages? Why do voters have a magnet towards evil.
We even have people here at FR putting words into Rush’s mouth, then slapping it on the TITLE.
I cannot imagine how pissed that would make Rush at FR.
He was clear he’s not endorsing anyone at all, and then some Santorum fan posts, “Rush endorsing Santorum”.
He must be doing angry back-flips.
I can’t believe there are Freepers that stupid and blatant.
Well, I have endorsed Newt.
Sarah Palin sure is not afraid to say what is on her mind.
She has something in common with Rush. She hasn’t endorsed amyone either.
I finally just turned him off, today. He spent the entire part of the show I heard explaining why he doesn’t endorse. And how much it upsets people and how he doesn’t understand, yada, yada, yada......It was boring.
He’s voting for Santorum today......
Limbaugh (David) did endorse Santorum in much the same way that Palin (Todd) endorsed Gingrich....
