Do We Want to Reach the Low-Info Crowd?
The Rush Limbaugh Show ^ | 20 December 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 12/20/2012 4:35:45 PM PST by COBOL2Java

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We're gonna start in Long Valley, New Jersey. This is Frank. Thank you, sir, and welcome. Great to have you here.

CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I was sitting here enjoying a cigar in one of the last bastions in New Jersey you're still allowed to smoke. So having a good time listening to you. But the real problem here is, you're talking about the uninformed voter, you're not gonna get them by giving them more information. And the left separates elections from governing. And we don't do that. We tell people during the elections what we're gonna do after we are elected, and progressives tell people what they want to hear to get elected. And we don't separate it.

I had breakfast with Romney. And I looked at him and I said, "Are you gonna attack President Obama during this election?" And he said, "No." I said, "Then you're gonna lose, because we need to start thinking about elections separately than governing." And we don't do that. We come up with great ideas, great policies, but there's never been a policy enacted with a concession speech. All we do is give concession speeches. It's ridiculous. And the tax issue, I said to him, "I think you should go out there and say to people, 'Look, progressives want to tax less people more and conservatives want to tax more people less. Because when more people are being taxed less, then people are working and the economy grows.'" He looked at me and said, "Ah, it's a great idea, it's true, but you can't say that." I said, "Why can't you say it? It's the truth. And we need to separate --"

RUSH: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, now. He did say it, and that was the problem. What was it that scared people about the Republican convention, do you think?

CALLER: Probably too many facts and figures. Probably too much information.

RUSH: No! The Republican convention was about hard work. Every Speaker had the same story, up from nothing. Families who sacrificed for years, in some cases decades, so their kids could make something of themselves. The kids came along and they worked really hard, America's great, the land of opportunity. Sorry, doesn't sell. But Romney did talk about broadening the base, lowering taxes so more people get hired. More people working equals more revenue to the government. People weren't interested in that. They're not interested in that.

CALLER: No, but he did it just like you did it, by explaining it through facts and figures in a broad sense. We need to start using -- and this is what low-information people understand -- one- and two-sentence terms and repeat it over and over and over and over. And that's what the progressives have done and that's why they win. They don't care about governing. The governing comes after the election. We don't think about just winning. We need to destroy the opponents. We should be looking at whoever's gonna run in 2016 and we should start to destroy them today. Today.

RUSH: Now, I'm gonna tell you something. You are right on the money with that because that's what they are already doing. They are already targeting Marco Rubio. They are already beginning to target whoever they think our future stars are. That is exactly what they did to Romney, and Romney didn't do a thing about it. Bush didn't do a thing about it when it was happening to him while he was president. For some reason our side keeps believing, ah, nobody's gonna really believe that. That's so extreme and outrageous, nobody's gonna believe it, and they do.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Our last caller did have a point. Actually, two points. He said we ought to be out destroying whoever, working on Hillary right now. They are. The Democrats, that's their modus operandi. They're out destroying Rubio. Now, the low-information voters don't think it's unfair. They think the Democrats are warning them, telling them the truth about these evil people that want to do 'em harm, gonna make 'em work or what have you. Do you realize, Obama really never has governed, at least the perception is he's always campaigning. Now, clearly he's governing. Don't misunderstand me. The people we're talking about, he's constantly appealing to them. He's constantly reaching out.

Do you know he's fundraising even now off of Newtown, Connecticut, on his website? What's he fundraising for? He doesn't have another campaign. They're out asking for donations to Obama websites. And they're appealing to people's emotions based on the Republicans and their stand on the fiscal cliff and Newtown, Connecticut. They're fundraising on this stuff. And he hasn't even been inaugurated for his second term yet and he's fundraising. For what? Democrat Party? Who knows what. But the caller's on to something. You know, we equate campaigning with governing. "Okay, here's how we're gonna govern."

They don't do that. In fact, the Democrats cannot be honest about that they're gonna do. If they were, they would lose every election. If Obama had told people, "My plan is a perpetual unemployment rate near 9%, ever-expanding government with more debt and a higher deficit," you think he'da won anything? In fact, he campaigned promising people he's gonna end all that stuff. And so he gets credit for trying, because that's what they think he's doing. Now, we're talking low-information people here. That's the caveat.

In one way it's very frustrating. It's also, to me, quite fascinating, in the sense that we gotta devise a way to defeat it.

Here's Larry in Evansville, Indiana. Thank you for calling, sir. Great to have you on the program.

CALLER: Well, hi, Rush. I've been waiting to have this conversation for a long time, and it's very important. I'm glad you're having it. Listen, my comments are, earlier you raised two questions. How do we reach low-information voters, and then what do we tell them? Well, I believe there's only three ways, there's actually three ways --

RUSH: Can I interrupt you for a second? Don't lose your train of thought, but I'm gonna tell you what my gut reaction is. And this is why I could never be a politician. When you say, what do we have to do to reach low-information -- I don't even want to. I don't even want to descend to that level.

CALLER: Well, I think it's necessary to win elections.

RUSH: Now, no, no, wait. See, even my staff here, highly overrated the other side of the glass, thinks I just stepped in it by saying that. But do we want to be governed by -- or maybe -- I know what my problem is, we have to figure out a way not to appeal to 'em but to use them.

CALLER: Correct.

RUSH: We make them think we care about them but we really don't.

CALLER: Well, I wouldn't say that.

RUSH: That's what the Democrats are doing.

CALLER: I say we have three opportunities to reach them.

RUSH: All right.

CALLER: If you want to win elections, debate number one, debate number two, and debate number three. Now, Rush, if we woulda put an earpiece in Romney's ear and you on the other end telling him what to say, we woulda won. In other words, we want our Republican candidates to say what you and your colleagues have been saying for years.

RUSH: Wait a second.

CALLER: That's why it's so frustrating.

RUSH: Wait just a second. Just a second. Your premise, are you telling me that I know how to reach low-interest voters?

CALLER: I think you could, yeah, better than Romney could, yes. See, low-information voters tend to vote emotionally rather than logically.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: And you're a smart person, very logical and all this. They like Obama 'cause he's cool, he plays basketball and all that. Romney is being the same old same old Republican rich guy who's gonna make us go to work. In other words, if you would say in the debate, "Hey, if you want a bunch of free stuff then I'm not your guy. But if you want some dignity in your life --"

RUSH: So what, we have to convince them that we don't want 'em to go to work, either?

CALLER: No, you gotta reach them emotionally. In other words, you say, "Hey, if you want some dignity and pride in knowing that you can provide for your family with a good job, then I'm your guy." That's an emotional thing they're gonna react to, you see what I'm saying? They'll react to that, "Hey, I don't want to be a freeloader. I really do want to work. This makes sense." It's an emotional -- they buy emotionally. See what I'm saying? And that's how we gotta change things.

RUSH: Now I'm confused. I understand when you talk about they're emotional, not thinking, but I don't equate teaching them about work and opportunity as working with the low-information voter. Now, I could be wrong about this. Okay, let me ask you, are you essentially saying that you think my degree of passion and my desire to have people understand what I'm saying could reach these people? Is that your point?

CALLER: Rush, thank you. You just put words in my mouth. Passion is the key. You have a passion for caring about people and our country. That's not being displayed so much in the debates on the Republican side. Thank you. That's exactly what I wanted to say.

RUSH: Okay. All right. No, I appreciate it 'cause I must tell you, when I hear low-information voter, I think hopeless. Low-information voter, how do you reach somebody that doesn't know anything? And then I guess I'm coupling the fact that -- and maybe this is where I'm wrong. I'm assuming that in America in 2012, if you're a low-information voter, you don't want to know. We got more media. We have more opportunity to be informed than we've ever had in this country, and if you aren't it means you don't want to be. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but you have to work at not being informed in this country.

CALLER: Well, not when you got the liberal news media against you. You know what I would do? I would take all the campaign money or all the money I would spend on commercials and give it to supporting low-information supported charitable causes, not spend one dime --

RUSH: What the hell is that? What is a low-information charitable cause?

CALLER: Well, I didn't mean low charitable causes, but people who benefit from charitable causes from low income or low --

RUSH: Who are they? What are low-information charities?

CALLER: People who abuse the welfare system. People who want a free ride. I'm not talking about people who are in real true need, but the people who are abusing the giveaways by the government. That's who I'm talking about. In other words, if a candidate actually said, "Hey, I'm donating all my money." You're not buying votes, you're showing your sincerity, because it doesn't matter anyway. Those commercials are just a waste of money. Why not give those to charitable causes anyway. And you have to reach people at the debates because they don't listen to conservative radio. We're preaching to the choir too much.

RUSH: They're not listening to liberal media, either. By definition. They're low-information. They're watching Entertainment Tonight.

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: They're tuning in to TMZ on the Web. They care about KStew and RPattz. They care about the Twilight saga. They are moved by when Oprah cries.

CALLER: Exactly.

RUSH: But they're not watching CBS, ABC, NBC.

CALLER: They don't care about the fiscal cliff. They don't understand the national debt. As long as they can watch their reality TV shows, it's not affecting their lives on a day-to-day basis.

RUSH: They think that stuff is just typical Washington BS, fiscal cliff, all this. Let me illustrate 'cause I realize I'm probably making people very nervous and I'm probably sounding very threatening to 24-year-old single unmarried, maybe divorced twice, three times, bigamy women. Who knows. I don't intend to be doing that. But let me illustrate what I mean when I think of low-information voter. Oh, this isn't gonna work because I'm just gonna get called names. Let me use it anyway. I'll run the risk. You remember in the first term, maybe the first year, Obama announced a voucher program for rent-free leaving in certain American cities. One of the cities was Detroit. Literally 30,000 people showed up to register for the opportunity to get some rent assistance or something like that.

Of the 30,000, there were only like 1,500 such grants to be made. Thirty thousand people showed up. And our affiliate, WJR, sent a reporter into the crowd to ask them some various questions. Why were they there. What did they hope to get, and where was it coming from. They were the classic low-information voters. They thought they were showing up to get a free apartment and that Obama was giving it to 'em. And when he said, "Well, where's Obama getting the money?"

"From his stash. I don't know, I don't care, Obama, Obama, it's coming from Obama's stash." Now, they were of the opinion that Barack Obama personally was gonna get them into some apartment or whatever the deal was. I think it was rent assessment or abatement, but Obama was gonna do this personally for them. That's why they were showing up. Now, that is what I think of low-information voter, and I said at the time that if I were president and that's what people thought I was going to do, I'd be embarrassed. But Obama was not embarrassed. That's a sign of success to Obama and the Democrats. That kind of citizenry, if you will. See, they don't care how it is they end up with their power. They don't care what kind of country it is that they're governing, as long as they're governing it or controlling it.

Where it is often thought they have all the compassion, they're the ones that have all the care and concern for these people. They don't. Your average Democrat voter lives in squalor, lives in near poverty. Your average Democrat voter lives a subsistence. But they keep voting for it. Now, it would embarrass me, and I said this at the time, it would embarrass me. I caught hell, by the way, from the Drive-By Media for this assessment at the time that I made it. I'm just repeating the story because that's what I think of when I think of low-information voter. So when I say I wouldn't want to reach them, as president I wouldn't want to do what it takes to get their support. 'Cause what is that?

That's turning the country into a socialist state. I don't want to do that. I don't have a desire for power like that. When I hear low-information, that's what I see. I don't see skin color. I see helpless people. Now, you may see low-information people in a totally different way. You may see average, ordinary, common Americans who just don't know anything, or don't care to know anything. I have a different knee-jerk, admittedly, definition or reaction to low-information voter. So if I'm wrong, feel free call and tell me. I could very well be. You know me. I'm never right that much.

Some of the moron vote is beyond help e.g. the Obama phone lady, but for others it may take things getting so bad that any alternative to Obama’s socialism would be better. Sadly it might take the US turning into East Germany complete with a border fence to keep people from fleeing.

Reach them how? By promising them more goodies than Obama? Because they vote for whoever gets them more goodies.

Exactly.

I think they need to be constantly reminded that they are slaves to the democrat party and show them the conservative path to freedom. I suspect you could even use their socialist indoctrination against the democrats.

The caller is correct. Another thing is that conservatives are too busy praying and actually thinking everyone will play by the rules. Dems DONT. They will do everything, meaning cheat, to win and I doubt conservatives will do that.

I think it will have to come bottom-up, from the red states first. Hopefully the 10th Amendment won’t be quashed before this happens. Once states like Texas, Oklahoma and others start pushing back against the statist tide and prosper, it will eventually trickle up to the federal level. Hopefully it’s not too late.

You have to understand, they don’t see themselves as slaves. You can’t appeal to their intellect. As sad as this is, “feelings” are treated as facts.

Feelings inspire action. Persuasion works best when it focuses most on core emotions, not cerebral abstractions.

You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle.

Encouraging prepping is a good foot in the door strategy. It appears to be non partisan, but encourages self sufficiency and not waiting for the government to come rescue you from a hurricane.

I actually don’t agree with Rush. Obama lost this election by legal votes. He did not legally win.

He won because the low info voteers were pushed to commit fraud.

That is why we see odd polls like “the American people say we are going in the wrong direction”.

Very true, but that won’t fix voter fraud that goes unanswered.

You want low info? Look at the Republican party leadership. We have 24 months between elections. We’ve burned up a month and a half, and where are they? Still scratching their heads.

Agree.

And one of the most powerful feelings is in feeling betrayed. They need to know that Obama and the Democrats are taking them for granted, keeping them in poverty, and laughing behind their backs that they STILL got reelected.

And it's true, they don't watch ABC, CBS, NBC, or listen to Rush Limbaugh. They are on social media most of the day. That's where they need to be reached.

How much info does an inner city single Mom need to make a decision on who to vote for? Here’s what an inner city single Mom cares about.

“I’m scared for me and my kids. Can you help me?”

The Democrats used Behavioral Scientists who taught them to use fear to manipulate people. It’s sickening but effective. Our big political science brains are trying to squeeze out an extra four votes in a precinct while the Democrats are going after millions across the country.

“Understand yourself and understand your opponent, and in one hundred battles, you will not be defeated.”

Well one thing we could do is get rid of Boehner and elect representatives and leaders like Allen West who will tell it straight and put it into language these idiots can understand. For example, instead of saying Obama’s plans are unacceptable state that Obama is a petty tyrant who is spending us into bankruptcy. Tell it straight into kitchen table language.

I think SOME will vote for a candidate who does a really good job of articulating the advantages of a real economic recovery and the pride and liberty and better life that comes with making your own living

SOME. I realize... not all.

But we only need SOME.

Yes, unfortunately the techniques of propaganda and brain-washing are well known...and, as we’ve been seeing, quite effective.

Let’s just say that the next R candidate would be wise to at least study a little basic marketing before going on the campaign

Understood. One good thing that's happening in Detroit is some tightly controlled bacon in the form of a new international bridge. Canada is effectively paying for the bridge so that money won't have any Detroit control. We have to pay for the land on our side but that will go primarily to property owners. The big bonus will come with jobs in warehousing, truck terminals and other freight related infrastructure.

Basically its treating Detroit like a drug addict by offering them a hand up without handing them cash to blow. The cash will be available but only if they work for it.

They vote we need them! I think we should create 30 second spots to run just like the Mormon TV spots to explain how conservatives work. We also need to help the middle class. We no longer have a free economy. The power has shifted to the corporations. I would rather come up with a way to "spread the wealth" at the corporate level and not send money to Washington to “redistribute”.

“And one of the most powerful feelings is in feeling betrayed.”

Or played. The left plays the game that greedy white racist millionaires are the cause of whatever condition their target audience is in.

Take Chicago or Detroit. The people who live there have been played for generations. This is Shangri-La, the best that it’s ever going to be. They need to be kept in their place. Not by greedy white racist men, but by black hucksters, “leaders” if you will, whose source of power depends on their followers’ misery.

The day that government Santa Claus is exposed as a crack dealer, they’ll start to get it. That’s when we go to work.

I think we could reach them on two fronts:

1) free abortions for all liberals and minorities; and

2) opium dens.

By the time they caught on, it would be too late.

Any good it does for the city will be a side effect. That’s the second busiest freight crossing in north America and it needs to happen. The jobs will be there for the taking and the rest will be up to the people.

Once people start working they look at things a bit differently.

Another good side effect is that it will virtually erase one of the worst most run down areas of Detroit (Delray)

“The jobs will be there for the taking and the rest will be up to the people.”

Do you think that people might come back? Or maybe non-native Detroiters re-populate the city? It could use some new blood to kick out the old guard.

I have absolutely no reason to, but I have a soft spot for Detroit.

I suspect plenty of native Detroiters will come looking for jobs and what aren’t taken by locals will be filled by other means. Being good for Detroit is just a by product.

Its kind of funny, if you look t aerial pictures of Delray (Along the north edge of Zug Island) and across the river, you can tell that Canada has been planning for a long time. They even have a major highway spur there for no apparent reason.

Gingrich got the country on board with welfare reform (and Clinton had to sign the bill) by focusing on the "cycle of dependency" and the effect that had on the human spirit and on children. When children saw parents going to work every day, they saw the way adults should live their lives and had responsibility and pride modeled for them. That argument was very effective.

Berating and belittling people in an attempt to shame them into voting for you is not a winning strategy, but appealing to peoples' concerns for the future success and well being of their children works.

The one thing really lacking in our constitution is that there should have been a clause right at the top that said, “All potential voters shall(no exceptions) take and pass a voter fitness test concerning the operation of the three branches of government in order to be qualified to vote. A grade of 80% or higher is considered passing.”

why do conservatives play by the rules of the left when we use the term "progressive"? The Dims are not progressive, but regressive

I refuse to call them that and refuse to use the term "pro-choice" preferring the terms "leftist" and "pro-baby-killing".

We're letting them win by Newspeak -- we let the homosexuals do it with the terms "gay" etc.

Surely no one believes America voted to reelect the Marxist/Muslim usurper- the worst president in American history?






Can't you just imagine the above was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?

Next time? What makes them think the massive voter fraud in this last farce of an election won't be repeated? If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime

Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012


What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the criminal Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.

>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.

>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.

>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.

>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.

>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.

So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?

Massive voter fraud.

That and no other reason

Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events, Canada Free Press...


We cannot wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.

We must act NOW.

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....

Believe it or not, there ARE patriots out there who are going to FIGHT Obama's reelection- unlike the spineless Republicans who remain silent!

Visit the website; 'The Competent Conservative'

'These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below... '





Visit the website, 'Halt Voter Fraud':

'This election is not over - YET. Obama has not been elected by the Electoral College - YET. The Presidential election is being stolen from us with "Chicago Style" thuggery - and we can STOP the thieves in their tracks. But we do not have time on our side. This is our LAST chance. Don't give up. We must act now.

If massive voter fraud has occured as alleged by so many, and if the state vote counts include these FRAUDULENT votes, then is it logical to say that the entire state vote is COMPROMISED and can't be trusted? 59,000,000 Americans might agree!

The state vote is used to determine the allocation of Electors in the Electoral College which actually elects the President and Vice President.

If the vote count is FRAUDULENT, FLAWED, and CAN'T BE TRUSTED - and if the Electors have been FRAUDULENTLY allocated based on FLAWED vote counts - then WE CANNOT ALLOW THE GOVERNORS TO SIGN THEIR CERTIFICATES of ASCERTAINMENT on December 17th. We can stop this if we ACT IMMEDIATELY.

***** CALL TO ARMS ***** FIVE STATE CAPITOLS ***** SEVEN DAYS *******

Patriots must rally NOW in the State Capitols of Harrisburg,PA - Richmond, VA - Tallahassee, FL - Columbus, OH, and Madison, WI ****** MASSIVE RALLIES ** *** PATRIOT LEADERS ORGANIZE YOUR LOCAL EFFORTS NOW, coordinate with the other PATRIOT groups as they also rally, let us know who you are and how you will respond, how we can help.

Remember the Battle of Trenton?

We can make HISTORY TODAY.'
