You claim that he is neutral, I read the transcripts like Bloody Thursday, and see him as anti-Newt.
Rush was not so coy last time, we knew that he despised the front runner, and supported Mitt Romney.
Even if he is suddenly "neutral" which he is not, why is "neutral" suddenly OK when Romney is so favored for 2012?
That’s not exactly a widely known issue. I would say well less than 1% of the electorate consider that an issue because they don’t even know about it...in fact that was first I’ve heard of what you just outlined in that great of detail.
If I had known that Santorum voters were romneybots, I would have challenged them every time they tried to pass themselves and Santorum off as conservative.
No wonder so many of them spend time trying to stop Romney’s only real opponent.
Rush does not endorse anyone in the primaries
I don’t know who Rush will support,but I noticed today that he calls Romney and Santorum by their last names and newt by his first.
May mean nothing, may not.
I would tend to agree with that. I'm sure there is some real variation of the number but who the heck knows what it is.
My point with Rush was that it was just an opinion without an agenda.
If I could place a bet, not that we'll ever really know anyway, Rush is voting for Gingrich....just MY opinion.
But the bottom line it wouldn't matter who he supports or endorses, it wouldn't change my vote what so ever.
I listen to him because I respect his point of view, I don't vote because of who or what he says.
I do happen to agree with him most time though.
That's about as absurd as it gets.
You can never discuss anything rationally - always just insult people who are just trying to have an adult conversation and make ridiculous accusations and attacks like this. Childish. Grow up and get real.
Exactly, and that is what Rush is doing, inform people. He said many times that he will not endorse anyone during the primaries, and he is correct not to, although his brother thinks otherwise, but that’s his privilege. My take is if you need anyone to tell you who to vote for, then you shouldn’t be voting period.
As you can see above, because by merely having an analysis that differs from what ansel wants to be true vs. what is probably actually true, we are now “Romneybots” in disguise, even though I made quite clear Newt is my next choice...but I can’t speak for Santorum voters out there in the heartland as a whole and what reasons they would have for voting one way or the other. I now recall previous run-ins with ansel that went the same way - if you even merely speculate on how people’s minds may or may not behave and it differs from what he/she wants to be true, you are to be belittled and defamed for absolutely no reason other than you said something different what he /she did. It’s ridiculous.
I listen to him daily, I hear the ENTIRE show in totality. Rush has been neutral.
I don't know how often or HOW MUCH of the show you are able to hear but you can't cherry pick segments and accuse him of bias in way or the other.
Overall, he has been fair and even in criticism as well as complimentary views of all candidates. (Except for maybe Paul)
Did it ever occur to you that some people don’t want Romney OR Newt? We’re inevitably going to be stuck with one of them but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.
As it should be. Let’s just make up our own minds.
I think Rush and big chunks of the “Right Media” have signaled that when the GOP decides,that is who they will promote. Rush has made clear his goal is unseating Obama, regardless of who they replace him with.
The 50% to the majority who would vote for Romney are romneybots.
You said 50%, Rush said the majority, personally, I think you guys are nuts, all this time I always assumed the Santorum voters would turn to Newt after Rick drops out, I still believe that.
You made a nice personal attack, but anyone who will vote for Romney is, well, the type of person who can vote for Romney, why defend them?
Indeed, that is quite telling from ansell2.
And yes, now that I recall, I believe I've had my, ahem, debates with him/her as well.
All I can say is that I pray God is still giving America his blessings....we NEED them desperately!
Bishop Romney and Mormonism is a nuclear bomb that the media is keeping on the shelf for right now, it is wild beyond your imagination.
Mitt Romney himself, will become a GOD, an actual God with worshipers and followers and a planet to rule over, he will be polygamous as God, his wife’s after life will be decided by Mitt, he can choose to allow her to enter in to the after life, or not. Mitt’s wives will be producing celestial children for Mitt.
I guess you know that as a Priest, religious teacher, missionary, counselor, Bishop, Stake President, and expected to become higher in the church, Mitt Romney, taught the religion’s racist theology until about a year after the movie “Star Wars’ came out, the year “Animal House” was released.
I think that against a Chicago trained, black President, some of this may come up, you know, just a little bit.
The idea that Santorum’s people would choose a, radically pro-gay, passionatly pro-abortion, anti-Christian cult leader over a born again Catholic convert from an indifferent Christian back ground, seems too incredible to believe.
I have decided to go with my instinct and not vote for Newt in the primaries, and because I have always liked Rick Santorum I will vote for him on March 6
He is not alone; however; you surely had to notice that despite Cain's endorsement of Newt; when pushed in interview at Fox News; he ended up giving up some 'good will' to Mitt. (Made me furious, actually; but no; there are more doing same. Witness, Sarah Palin, as well; who while praising Newt and clearly wanting him to win; nonetheless; compliments Mitt on his abilities per leadership.
They are all making me ill!
Perhaps; like Rush; today's endorsement can too easily be used as a 'kiss of death' and they do not want to give the Left/Dems. . .the satisfaction.
Meantime; our Repub Party, is beginning to look like the Costa Concordia. It is all too pathetic.
