AWESOME Rush: Heavily skewed CNN poll proves that Obama inevitability talk is manufactured
The Right Scoop ^ | 9/11/2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 09/11/2012 7:24:51 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Great news here. Rush opened his show noting that the CNN poll which has Obama up 6 points over Romney is a joke of a poll, that it over samples Democrats by a very wide margin. Which makes his point that media is still trying to prop up Obama with these phony polls.

He explains below and more:

We on the Right side, know that MSM is in the tank for Obama. Romney needs to get out in front some way some how and start articulating what a liar this President and his administration is. He just needs to use their words, not his(Romney’s). Tell the indie’s and Demorats what is going on. If we wait for the debates we are going to be let down with that as well. I can see it now, “Gov. Romney, what do you say about gay marriage?” UGH!!!!

The way it's going the debates will be something to avoid watching, and the news afterward. I thought of this earlier :see#69 here

Would you rather he had declared a McCain defeat before the election? (rhetorical)

Frankly, I don't doubt that the polls are skewed. But most importantly, Romney and the Republican party is dealing with an opposition that CHEATS...Chicago style! I don't doubt skewed polls and voter fraud is all part of the 0 and Democrat playbook, and they'll use it to every advantage they can muster.

RE :”Would you rather he had declared a McCain defeat before the election? (rhetorical)

Rush does this EVERY election, not only 2008 but he did it in 2006 too,
In the early 1990s I was ecstatic about Rush but I have no desire to have someone lead me off an emotional cliff by deforming reality so bad in the short term. I don't want to live in an imaginary world because as like Dreams it cant last.

The problem with the polls now is that in this climate there is no way to tell who will really come out and vote. It is not 2008 or 2010 where it was VERY easy to tell who had the big advantage(assuming you didn't believe Rush or Hannity 2008, I knew better)

Romney and CO seem to be struggling hoping the bad economy wins it for them.

Hope you enjoy your 4 more years of Obama.

Apparently you liked his last 3. His last 4 "progressive" years should be at least double good for you.

All this is going to happen because I posted this link to an old Rush post?

Imaginary world? Emotional cliff? No offense, but man, you almost sound liberal. I can sympathize with you and understand your point, but, frankly, but perhaps you need a different outlook.

At times I view Rush as being a quarterback or even cheerleader when the opposition is doing their extreme best to taunt you. And by the looks of it, the opposition is perhaps taunting you and many others very well. Why would Rush show the opposition weakness? In fact, why should any of us Freepers show the opposition weakness? That’s almost like appeasing our enemies. You may call it a realistic view and perhaps you have a better crystal ball to the future than the rest of us...And if you do, more power to you...I wish you the best. But even at the worst of times, a football team that’s having a bad day (or season) tries to give their all with each game. That’s part of the American spirit that is lacking in many people nowadays.

Quarterback??? Rush is an entertainer not some selless hero who leads us into battle at any risk to himself. He makes $$$ by creating an imaginary world that his listeners want to live in, and he is very successful at it. In that imaginary world Republicans will crush Dems in 2006 and 2008.

Over at MSNBC you can watch Sharpton and Maddow create the imaginary world that liberals want to live in, in that imaginary world Democrats were beating Republicans on every issue in 2010, then OOOPS.

Coulter supported Romney from the beginning and I read comments that Ingraham did too, but I dont know if she was supportive as Coulter was, I know Coulter was super supportive.

That's is why they are livid with Romney now for running such a lame campaign, because they were sure he was a strong candidate who would knock around Obama and it's not happening.

So they should tell Romney+Co to get their act together, but time is running out. I was critical months ago but a few freepers told me to just wait till the convention and things would change.

RE :”Romney isn’t doing anything to win yet. Will he ever do anything? We shall soon know

Nothing??
He is doing interviews with the MSM to get public exposure avoiding (refusing) answering many of their questions. And they know exactly which ones to ask, those ones he wants to not answer.
I heard he gave a interviewer a list of questions that she was not allowed to ask him, and he did it ‘On the record’ so they all know exactly which questions to torment him with.

But dont worry Rush says :

If that holds up, and if on election day Romney wins independents by 14, we're looking at a landslide. It's not even going to be close. Well, I won't say close, but it's going to be big

Really,
You have a cult member's mentality.
You worship certain individuals(mortals) and put them so high above yourself you don't care if they are completely wrong with what they tell you regularly, When you go into that imaginary world where an talented entertainer who is still flawed is a messiah figure to you (he tells you he is as part of his act) you don't even care if he's completely wrong with what he tells you from time to time. Only 'liberals' would care about that , Rush teaches you.

It felt good while it lasted to live there, but eventually the election results get through to you and its not pretty. But Rush explains how he was right being completely wrong and you feel a little better.

Then the day after the election Rush tells you the bad news and it's Boom!

Dont doubt him, he says he's ALWAYS RIGHT! And you know only a lib would doubt him....HA-HA. Rush told you that so it must be true.

ROTFL!! Rush--A messiah? LOL! Dude, if I were to take your bet, you'd lose big time. Admittedly, for an "entertainer", Maha Rushie's opinions tend to reflect mine than most of those in Hollywood. So, frankly, I don't have the problem with his opinions, as you do. Plus, I don't hold ill-will towards him for being a capitalist.

But consider this: For someone who uses the moniker "sickoflibs", you seem to prefer to voice a doom and gloom opinion which only helps the liberal cause. I don't fault you for it. Even Rush, Coulter and Hannity say bonehead comments that only help liberals now and then, IMO. Perhaps your values are conservative like theirs, but, on the off occasion, when emotions are high or low, you tend to point negativity towards the wrong direction. That's an answer only you would know.

And since you seem to like to focus on an article from 2008, let's fast-forward and take your worst case scenario for November 2012:

Say, if after this election is over, and, in your words, BOOM!! Through all the Chicago-style tactics, trickery, thuggery, biased-media, fake polls, and voter fraud that the 0 will use: The 0 wins. Will I Blame It On Bush? Will I blame Rush, Romney, or you? Will I moan, groan and wallow in doom, gloom and sorrow? Hell NO! Life's much too short for that. I'll just calmly pick myself up, quietly dust myself off, and simply go with plan B. ;)

I won't bother asking what you would do. I'm only participating in this discussion to give my 2 cents and provide a food for thought. I would like to say, however, this has been an exhilarating discussion and exercise. I've actually learned a lot from all of this.

My best regards to you. ;)

??? Telling your listeners they are winning when they are losing is not helping them, or hurting Dems. It's like disabling all the indicators on your car because you dont like the readings. Or finding a blood pressure meter, scale, bood sugar test, or thermometer which tells you what you want the measurements to be so you can keep eating fatty saltly sugary food.

If you are losing (and big like 2006 and 2008) you should figure out why so you can make corrections. Not try to find someone like Rush to tell you everythings going great.

I was a huge Rush fan in the early 90s, Loved both his books and his TV show. But things have changed greatly since then and so has he.

The Republican party has many problems right now, but one of them is that they really haven't changed leadership since the disastrous 2007 and 2008 years :Boehner and McConnell and now Romney who is not that much different than Bush or McCain (he is probably more loyal to the party than McCain.) This is a big problem.

The other problem is that the R party is fractured and doesn't have a leader it trusts, where-as the liberals base of the Dem party trust and love Obama. They were starting to turn on him in 2009 and 2010 but Boehner taking over the House fixed that. So Democats unite and Republicans argue with one another. A strong winning trusted leader would unite Republicans (or even conservatives) as a team, and Rush is certainly not that person

We dont know how this election will turn out (unlike 2008 and 2010 which were easy to forcast) but Republicans are not doing very well considering the current climate.

Dukakis up 17 after his Convention.

The convention bounce will fade and then watch the LV polls...Romney will be looking good in the swing states and this recent Carteresque Mideast debacle may swing independents and Reagan Dems back hard to Romney.

I'd refer to football or sports related anecdotes in disagreement, but then we'd only be talking in circles. I would like to note that the election, close as it is, is still weeks away, and your already talking about losing.

It's like disabling all the indicators on your car because you dont like the readings. Or finding a blood pressure meter, scale, bood sugar test, or thermometer which tells you what you want the measurements to be so you can keep eating fatty saltly sugary food.

Ah! Then the problem isn't Rush, it's the "indicators" that individual people are willing to believe and go by. You're going by the indicators you trust in, which seems to work for you; I go by mine; Rush goes by his. And we all voice our opinions based on those indicators. Still, whatever any of our indicators say, that still doesn't sway the fact that we have a politician in the White House who is prone to lying and cheating at all cost, and is not above to using Chicago-style, dirty tactics and thuggery. In which case, all indicators can be deemed moot.

The real problem isn't Rush's optimistic(?) view. The real problem is how do you deal with an opponent who cheats and has the Media biased in his favor.

As individuals, it's up to each of us to figure out our own way in handling this dilemma. Rush handles it the only way he knows how; and if times, it comes off as false optimism, then perhaps, in dire times, he believes false optimism is still better than NO optimism. Who knows. At least, from what I can hear, he makes an effort to point negativity in the right direction......most of the times. ;)

Again, I would like to say this has been a thoroughly enjoyable and informative discussion. I'll leave you with the last word.

RE :’ I'll leave you with the last word.

HA, That is like that ‘last’ potato chip we promise ourselves it will be.

I am not convinced that Rush's recent argument that Obama looking better in the polls rallies Dems to vote and Republicans to stay home is true. I think this may be another of his arguments of convenience.

If a Rush listener thinks that the R candidate is going to win in a landslide why does that make him more likely to vote? seems that if the R candidate is down that is more reason to get out the vote for him.

Or does Rush think his listeners are like horses ? they just follow the pack where-ever they go and wont bother to vote for the candidate they think will lose?

He did exactly the same thing in 2006. He Kept on saying up until the day after elect day that Dems would get creamed by Rs.

You are confusing Rush being ‘right’ and Rush claiming he ‘is always right’. They are not the same thing. Rush is not a wizard whose words completely transform and redefine reality flipping it upside down, he is just an entertainer, and maybe a cult leader.

RE :” he's (Rush) much more right (correct :) than wrong.

Given he was completely wrong in 2006 and 2008 he has come up with a clever but silly scam to use this time. He now says: ‘The MSM is creating bogus polls showing Obama winning to suppress the Romney vote

I dont see how showing Obama ahead suppresses the Romney vote, I was more inclined to vote for McCain when I saw he was losing rather than winning. But this way Rush can be ‘right’ no matter how the election turns out.

If Romney wins Rush says “See I was right, those polls were bogus

But if Romney loses Rush says :”See I was right, those bogus polls suppressed the Romney vote

That way he is right, ‘Always right” as he says. He predicts heads and tails at the same time so he ends up 'right'.

If you are gullible enough to swallow his nonsense.
