S.E. Cupp: ‘We can’t be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh’
Daily Caller ^ | 2./14/2013 | Matt K. Lewis

Posted on 02/14/2013 10:13:16 PM PST by Mozilla

The New York Times has a must-read up on how the GOP is losing the tech war — and losing the youth vote.

But tucked away in the piece, I found this:

[W]e can’t be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh,” said Goodwin’s fiancée, S. E. Cupp, a New York Daily News columnist and a co-host of”The Cycle”on MSNBC. “If we can get three Republicans on three different networks saying, ‘What Rush Limbaugh said is crazy and stupid and dangerous,’ maybe that’ll give other Republicans cover” to denounce the talk-show host as well.

I think Cupp has spent too much time with libertarians, progressives and atheists. I have turned on her. She sucks. She is a Karl Rove and a Ron Paul plant.

If you’re on MSNBC, you ain’t a conservative, no matter what you say. PERIOD.

“Call him out” for what? Daring to be peacefully subversive?

It seems as though Ms. Cupp has adapted quickly to the beltway society mindset and will soon burn through her 15 minutes of fame.

S E Cupp is a darling member of The Blaze team!

I agree, call out Rush Limbaugh on what?!?!?!

Saying that all that he has, and will continue to say, for over 25 years????

S E Cupp does need to ‘get out among the folks’ now and then!
She is building her own version of an ivory tower, methinks!

Earning her paycheck at MSNBC no doubt.

She’s on that one show with her pal Toure. Both her and Scarborough suddenly found their inner progressive over there.

As far as I’m concerned she’s just some loud valley girl trying to make headlines.

Call him out for what? That he is making stupid Republicans feel the heat..There is an ilk on the Republican side who are quickly becoming united against conservatives because they think that the party should move to the middle...funny thing is we've done that and lost our butts in two general elections and a huge loss in 06 because of this mentality... It was Rove who brought us Pelosi and Reid.

So the new rage is...lets become more like democrats so we can win...heh, what fools

I have no idea who this bimbo is, but Rush does go off on tangents at times, and is frequently over-the-top. He’s a radio personality, and is expected to be bombastic, God bless him.

But he’s not particularly deep, and shouldn’t be the voice of the party. That much I’ll concede.

Has S.E. Cupp been seduced by the Dark Forces at MSNBC or is she really showing off her CINO roots? She's beginning to sound like Ann Coulter after her Bill Maher/Log Cabin Republican/Chris Christie conversion.

Getting back to Cupp: she's articulate but there's always something that just doesn't feel “right” about her sincerity. Maybe her Atheism pulled her over to the Dark Forces (or, maybe it was a fat Lib paycheck)?

Yup... just like Joe Scarborough, Margaret Hoover, et al.

So she's disappeared into the black holes of MSNBC and GBTV or The Blaze TV or whatever it's called? No wonder I haven't seen her in years... I thought maybe she fell off the face of the earth.

Gee, maybe I think we should “call out” S.E. Cupp on the STUPID and INSULTING things she says, especially regarding Christians.

See, I can play this game too!

When the gun grab crap started, there were plenty of...’internet conservatives’ that called for ‘moderation’. Two weeks ago we had a zotting when one got vocal with calls for ‘moderation’ on the abortion issue. Yesterday and today I have read several posts praising Rubio and saying his position on immigration is OK because ‘no one’s perfect’.

I’d say SE has a lot of fans real close to home.

" but there's always something that just doesn't feel “right” about her sincerity."

That's been my impression. I had her in the category of wait and see before making a decision. She talked the talk, but now, she looks like she doesn't quite walk the walk. I give her one thumb down for that comment.

I would like Cupp to be more specific about what she wants to call Rush out on. If she has something she should take the lead in her criticisms, and not hide behind “we.”

What I do know for sure is that S.E. Cupp is a plant or a stooge for the forces against us such as Ron Paul and Karl Rove. She was hired to do their work or help out. The New York Times piece said this:

Cupp, who is 33, defines her brand of conservatism as “rational — and optimistic!” She is staunchly anti-abortion but also pro-gay-marriage and a “warheads on foreheads” hawk whose heroes are Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley Jr. Like many Republicans today — and indeed like liberal Democrats in the 1980s, before Bill Clinton came along and charted a more centrist course — Cupp finds herself in the unenviable position of maintaining that Americans largely side with her party’s worldview, even if their votes suggest otherwise. “Public polling still puts the country center-right on a host of issues,” she told me.

The problem is that her party’s loudest voices sound far more right than center. The voters in Kristen Soltis Anderson’s focus groups condemned Republicans for their unchecked hatred of Obama and for threatening to take away financing for Planned Parenthood, ban abortion, outlaw gay marriage and wage war. From where they stood, at the center-right of S. E. Cupp’s domain, the party had been dragged well out of plain view.

Proximus seeks to marginalize the more strident talking heads by offering itself up to — or if necessary, forcing itself upon — the party as a 21st-century mouthpiece. “If I were training a candidate who’s against gay marriage,” Cupp told me, “I’d say: ‘Don’t change your beliefs, just say legislatively this is not a priority, and I’m not going to take away someone’s right. And if abortion or gay marriage is your No. 1 issue, I’m not your guy.’ ”

I tried to imagine how Cupp’s kinder-gentler message-coaching would go over with the Tea Party, a group that was never mentioned by the young Republicans I spoke with until I broached it. Still, the influence of the far right on the party’s image remains hard to ignore. When I brought up the subject of the Tea Party to Cupp, she said: “People aren’t repelled by the idea of limited government or balancing the budget or lowering taxes. Those Tea Party principles are incredibly popular with the public, even if they don’t know it. Again, that’s a messaging issue, that’s not a principle issue.”

She went on to say, “I don’t think we win by subtraction” — meaning, by casting out the party’s right wing to entice the centrists. Instead, Cupp and her fellow travelers hope to revive Lee Atwater’s bygone “big tent,” under which gay people and Tea Party members and isolationists and neocons would coexist without rancor. But Atwater, the legendary R.N.C. chairman, did not have to worry about freelance voices like Limbaugh and Todd Akin offending whole swaths of emerging demographic groups. Nor during the Atwater era, when Ronald Reagan was president, did the party’s most extreme wing intimidate other Republicans into legislating like extremists themselves, thereby further tarnishing the party’s image. When I mentioned this to the Proximus gathering, Goodwin explained the dilemma faced by Republicans in Congress. “What forces them to vote that way, 9 times out of 10, is a fear of a primary challenge,” he said. “What we hope to accomplish is to bring more voters into Republican primaries, so that it isn’t just the far right that shows up at the polls.”

New York Times readers believe that Rush is EXTREME. No supporting evidence has ever been required, nor ever will be. The article presents no specifics about Cupp's objections to Limbaugh, if indeed she actually has any objections.

Since this piece is about voter perception in the last election, I want to point out that perhaps the reason leftist propaganda slime sticks to Republicans is not its accuracy but its sheer volume. Here's an interesting chart (sourced to here) comparing online display ads:

Does anyone think that all those online ads plus 24/7 MSM propaganda might have influenced voter opinion of Republicans?

This Goodwin idiot is S.E. Cupp’s fiance and his group called Proximus sounds like a Karl Rove, establishment front to take out the tea party.

The focal point of Proximus’s mission is not policy formulation but how to bring new voters into the fold while remaining true to “conservative” principles. “This is a long-term play,” conceded John Goodwin.

Quote from the article: When I mentioned this to the Proximus gathering, Goodwin explained the dilemma faced by Republicans in Congress. “What forces them to vote that way, 9 times out of 10, is a fear of a primary challenge,” he said. “What we hope to accomplish is to bring more voters into Republican primaries, so that it isn’t just the far right that shows up at the polls.”

Hmmmm ..?? Too bad you all weren’t listening the last couple of days .. he nailed Obama to a T: “He’ll never take responsibility for anything that happens in this country”. It was so good, even Drudge had it up on their website.

I’ve been listening longer than some of you may have been alive, and I can tell you .. he’s the best at discovering what people are really up to.

Some of you might want to listen more often, instead of hearing about what Rush said or didn’t say.

Ideological/intellectual depth. He can be a bit of a winsock/blowhard at times. Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan and appreciate his value to the party. Been listening to him since the early 90's. He's great at preaching to the choir. But he's not the kind of guy that's going to win anyone over to our side.

We are also doomed because people who claim to be conservatives, but are really not conservatives are infiltrating the grassroots, tea party and the republican party claiming to be one of us and lying and then twisting conservatism. Plants. It is a mix of democrats, libertarians and rinos. And that is the reason we eat each other up because they want to divide us and that is their mission. But also we become unable to trust anybody because they might backstabb.

He’s drawing people to him all the time .. because people are looking for the truth; and they know it when they hear it.

And that is what I have been shouting from the rooftops. But many don’t care. Moderation is the new buzzward and “How dare you question my conservatism!” is the new mantra.

If people want to call themselves conservative while accepting/trading abortion, gay marriage, gun control and illegal immigration for GOP votes, they can do it without me. I am far from perfect, but I am not stupid enough to try calling black white and thinking people should believe it.
