Better put some ice on it, Maher.
I agree. He’ll take one for the team. He knows that they love him, but for now, it’s just not the right time to date him. People might talk.
Next year, the excrement will hit the fan.
If Obama is re-elected he will do everything he can to makes sure all those Bush tax rates expire. I don't see any upside to him extending them again. And since it's at the beginning of the new congress by election 2014 many voters won't be sure who to blame as each side will blame the other for two years.
If a Republicans was to win I have little idea what they would do, but I am not optimistic. Dole said that a POTUS Romney would do a great job working with Dems to get things done.
“Dole said that a POTUS Romney would do a great job working with Dems to get things done. “
You can’t work with Dems....you beat the $hit out of them on TV, like Reagan did.
#40: Are you speaking generally or do you have a specific topic Steele gave them?
I remember that thread. At first, I thought that poster had a point, because I remember a leftist radio guy on the same local station that broadcasts Rush here (KLBJ Austin) 2 or 3 years ago saying that Rush was an "entertainer." But then I looked around and found no evidence of leftists calling him an "entertainer" today. On the contrary, I found exclusively comments like that of Maureen Dowd "he has become the puppet master of the Republican Party." (Dowd is crazy as usual. Santorum, for example, called him an "entertainer.")
There is a certain group that I call the "Madame Defarge" crowd, others have called then "Harpies," etc. They see their job on FR as looking for those who do not embrace their dogma. Even if you link the actual words spoken by the people involved, the truth is less important than ideological unity. By their standards, sickoflibs blasphemed against Limbaugh by not using the left's language that he a great GOP leader.
I don't know if that poster you referred to is in that group, but their MO is pretty much the same.
I will defend Rush when he is right, but I don't think he always is. He is not sacrosanct.
Either way, I think that if Santorum, Gingrich, Boehner, etc., had publicly agreed with Limbaugh's original statements, foul language and all, it would have turned out better for Obama.
After all, those mandates dont take place until AFTER the election(2013) , as do tax increases and defense cuts. GAS prices are going up RIGHT NOW, not waiting till 2013.
That's one reason why Obama is trying to delay/discourage Israel's strike against Iran. After the election, who in the regime cares what the price of gas is?
I didn’t see the video. Will try to find it. One of the things that is happening in our part of Texas though is that we are getting a whole lot of new residents who are bringing their east coast and west coast garbage with them. They will never get it. Wish they would go back where they came from.
That's why we moved out of Austin. My US Representative here (Williamson county) has a 0 out of 100 "progressive rating."
I like your narration of that.
Well that one didn't get too far with me, trying to take me on alone without a gang was a bad idea for him. The Rush cult is not what it once was here.
My first response was “ I been doing that for a while now ”
My later response was “ He talks about golf, sports, his vacations, parties he goes to, who he meets, then weaves a few commercials into his monologue, and then maybe makes a joke about Dems now and then. Sounds like a entertainer to me ”
I forgot to rub in all those days off Rush takes with guest hosts, seems like a day a week.
Rush IS an entertainer......26 million Americans wouldn’t tune in, if it was all politics.
Rush exposes the hypocrisy of the left, citing statistics, lies, and outright political fraud. Nobody does it better.
Rush’s “ Run the Numbers, folks” is always my favorite, because when one DOES run the numbers....the DEM LIES are hilarious!!
Limbaugh thought it was funny that he was considered "The man who runs America."
I despise Trent Lott!!
