Skip to comments.RUSH - Condoleezza Rice, Morality and Perspective [ spoke on sitting out election ]
Posted on 07/13/2012 7:49:04 PM PDT by NoLibZone
I saw some stories about... Actually, I should more accurately say I saw blog posts speculating on what would happen to turnout. Some of them made the point that there really isn't a whole lot of turnout energy, that conservative turnout's kinda flapping away in the wind. And if Condoleezza Rice had happened to be the nominee, it could suppress turnout.
And I read that and it boggles my mind.
I could be dead wrong about it, bit when I see blog posts that conservative turnout is down because they hate Romney and are unhappy that Romney's the nominee, and conservatives are already thinking sitting it out and sitting at home?
And if Rice is the choice, that's bad?
I'm thinking, "What the hell is going on out there?" If that's true, if there are a bunch of you people sitting around there thinking you're not gonna vote 'cause Romney's the nominee and if he chooses Condoleezza it's over, then I have lost touch with you!
I have lost touch with you. I don't understand that at all.
If they fully implement Obamacare, it's not just babies in the womb that are gonna be killed! That's his point. So what does it matter?
Now, it matters because it's morality.
It matters, and you should never compromise your morality. But you do have to keep things in perspective. And you do have to have your eye on the big prize and what is going to enable you to have your morality prevail (or to have a chance to, at any rate).
But if there are people out there who are saying, "You know what? (grumbling) I don't like Romney so much and I'm thinking not voting,"
I don't know you.

Here’s the audio of RUSH saying this.
Obama is NOT a RINO in any sense of the word.
I heard that today, and finally realized Rush doesn’t know me.
“I’m thinking, “What the hell is going on out there?” If that’s true, if there are a bunch of you people sitting around there thinking you’re not gonna vote ‘cause Romney’s the nominee and if he chooses Condoleezza it’s over, then I have lost touch with you! I have lost touch with you. I don’t understand that at all.”
Dear Rush...yes you have lost touch with us, but you need to examine your own stance to understand your inability to understand. You are too quick to allow Romney to be POTUS because you don’t hold to the “morale/social” conservative viewpoint. You are more focused on the other two legs...I think mainly “economic.” I have always known you were part of the GOPe as Ann Coulter...you need to break to bonds. Don’t just “talk the talk”, you need to “walk the walk” and fully break ties with the GOPe (you are not fully Tea Party as you say). I think you need to take to heart what Jim Robinson has repeatedly said in many different ways. What follows is a lengthy (unedited and spot on) quote by Jim Robinson:
You either defend life and liberty or you dont.
Im sworn to defend it from all enemies foreign and domestic and an oath is forever.
Obama believes in the power of the state. Romney believes in the power of the state. Both have records of abortionism, homosexualism, progressivism, statism. Neither defends the constitution or life and liberty.
Those who line up with either are lining up to give unlimited powers to the state and place severe limitations on liberty and individual freedom.
Im very sorry to have to report to you, my dear friends, that barring a miracle we pro-life and liberty conservatives have already lost the battle for the presidency. With either one of these two statists in power and with the current frame of mind of the SCOTUS, we have witnessed the end of constitutional government in America.
Our only prayer will be that we elect a majority of constitutionally minded conservatives into a majority of the legislative bodies all across this great land so that we the people can we re-assert our sovereign powers and impeach/recall/expel/fire and otherwise remove, rescind, overturn, repeal, abolish, close down and shutter all the corrupt usurping executives, legislators, judges and their corrupt usurping decrees, acts, amendments, treaties, decisions, departments, agencies, commissions, regulations, etc, and fully restore the constitution, restore the limits on government power and restore our God-given Liberty!!
Short of civil war, thats how you mend it.
I will be voting, and will urge any conservative who's thinking of staying home, to vote. The only hope we have of helping conservatives in Congress is of voting for conservatives down ticket and voting top of the ticket such as to make it so whichever bastard wins the White House, LACKS A MANDATE in the popular vote. The only way we can do that is by casting a vote and having it registered in the popular vote count. I'm voting FOR a plurality and therefore FOR denying the winner a mandate; I'm voting third party at the top of the ticket. Every vote counts in measuring the degree of mandate the winner can claim. The more votes that go third party, the weaker the mandate of WHICHEVER guy wins.
We are running out of leaders!

“It matters, and you should never compromise your morality. But you do have to keep things in perspective.”
Rush, you say “never compromise your morality”, which voting for Romney would do...then you contradict yourself and waffle by saying “keep things in perspective.” Rush...it is YOU THAT ISN’T KEEPING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE!
I still like you Rush, but on this you are just plain wrong...as is Coulter. Romney DOES NOT deserve our support anymore than Obama. The “Prize” is getting a conservative POTUS....voting for Romney WILL NOT accomplish that, and it may actually hamper it.
I wonder how many may stop listening to Rush now? Another sell out to the GOPe! I can hear the clicks all over the U.S.
I love it when someone who’s been divorced 3 times and married 4 times talks about morality.
“I’m voting FOR a plurality and therefore FOR denying the winner a mandate; I’m voting third party at the top of the ticket. Every vote counts in measuring the degree of mandate the winner can claim. The more votes that go third party, the weaker the mandate of WHICHEVER guy wins.”
Amen to that Bro! Keep up the good work! I agree 100%!
“I love it when someone whos been divorced 3 times and married 4 times talks about morality.”
Romney is the last sliver of hope that mending might occur, otherwise it will be civil war and you and your "I voted 3rd party on principle" pals had better be ready.
He says one thing that you don’t agree with and you are ready to dump him? You must not have been listening to him for very long to say such a thing. I disagree with Rush several times a day while listening to him, but for the other 99 percent of the time I agree with him.
“Neither defends the constitution or life and liberty.”
Bit of a stretch there, don’t you think?
I always thought maybe Jesus Christ is a RINO
Limbaugh must have paid his 3 ex-wives BIG bucks to keep their mouths shut.
As far as I know, not 1 of them has ever said a peep about him to the media.
I will not vote for Romney. I was not going to vote for the office of President in 2008, until Palin joined the team. I refuse to hold my nose again for a GOPe candidate. If they want my vote, they need to come to me.
Who cares? Rush isn't my moral authority. I don't answer to him.
