Limbaugh is pissing me off with all his negativity lately. The first day of the convention and nothing positive from Rush. He could care less if Romney wins and he cost the GOP the election with his Sandra Fluke comment. That is precisely when the momentum shifted back toward Obama. He cost us the WH in 2008 with his personal dislike of Mccain and he’s done it again this election. Hannity is just as bad right now as I listen to him. What has happened to the once proud Republican Party?

Rev. Sammy Rodriguez is a bottom feeding piece of racist trash who runs with the LaRaza crowd to push for open borders.

In a historic week for Immigration Reform in America, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez met with President Obama on Monday and urged the President to address the moral and spiritual dimension supporting immigration reform. Rodriguez joined a handful of other leaders representing the largest Hispanic organizations in the nation including National Council of La Raza, League of United Latin American Citizens and others in affirming the President's commitment while simultaneously reiterating the urgency of immediate action.

So today will be: pander, pander, pander through in a few good remarks about the American way and excellence, then pander some more, a few lines about compromise because we know the democrats want things to improve, some more pandering then a hearty wave with God Bless America.

All the while Romney and his lieutenants are figuring out how to get rid of conservatism.

Rush was REPORTING.

The negativism is from TEAM ROMNEY against
conservatives, as usual.
TEAM ROMNEY will defend Obama (nice man), but let
a conservative be seen, or one DARING to discuss
a conservative principle, and TEAM ROMNEY unsheathes
the knives.

One more thing.

Rush did not cost the GOP the White House.
THAT was caused by Mitt Romney having his team
attack Gov. Palin on the eve of the Election.

Do not try to revise the truth, because we ALL
watched the attacks on her and her children.

What has happened is that the GOPe have forced their socialist on the party and the base is tired of having moderates shoved down their throats.

The “us” is the Republican Party that I go back to all the way to the Eisenhower adminitration. I don’t like seeing the party being dominated by high stakes players in the ratings business.

I don’t agree with anything you said. I listened to Rush today. He was right on target. McCain lost in 2008 because he was such an AWFUL candidate, even Palin couldn’t drag him over the finish line. That, and Obama’s corrupt media accomplices, so don’t even try to blame it on Rush. He is also right about the rules power grab. We went into the convention with a unified party, and the GOP establishment decided to make a power play. Is Rush supposed to not mention it? I actually thought he tried to down play it more than he should have.

Uh,yeah right. Rush gets behind every nominee, whether he was for them or not. He had zero impact on this election with the Fluke comment. In fact, the whole war on women was essentially dropped three months ago because it has no impact at all on polling. It was a manufactured issue. Now, it has reared it’s head again because of the doofus in missouri.

I think we are coming undone as a party. We must beat obama. Romney is off to a very bad start. I’m not a Paulinian but he represents over 10% of this party— That the 10% we must have to win. The report on Dennis Miller radio today was that the delegations from Kansas , Maine , Iowa and Louisiana have been shoved in the back of the hall so they cannot be heard and they are furious. The idiot romney is insulting entire state legally constituted delegations.That is NOT good sport fans.We need a BIG tent or we are history.

Boehner declared them passed, on a voice vote that seemed to me to be far from unanimous. Lots of booing. I think Boehner and the RINOs have just told us to shut the hell up. I hope I am wrong, but think not.

A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.

I have been in and out all day and I am not sure what is going on either, other than some rule changes that will benefit the GOP establishment. Should anyone be so kind as to provide me with an executive summary of what is happening, I would GREATLY appreciate it.
