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 cant be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh, said Goodwins fiancée, S. E. Cupp, a New York Daily News columnist and a co-host ofThe Cycleon MSNBC. If we can get three Republicans on three different networks saying, What Rush Limbaugh said is crazy and stupid and dangerous, maybe thatll give other Republicans cover to denounce the talk-show host as well.

If you’re on MSNBC, you ain’t a conservative, no matter what you say. PERIOD.
Well I don’t watch MSNBC and I won’t watch Real News on The Blaze either.
“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.
Fake bitch got bought off by MSNBC. She’s dead to me.
So the new rage is...lets become more like democrats so we can win...heh, what fools
It’s time to go to war (figuratively) on the media bias. This is getting beyond ridiculous.
Cupp is a useful idiot of the left now.
Kupp would feel right at home on the Carnival Cruise ship Triumph among the other sh.t dwellers.
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.
Well babe, you just go right ahead and call him out. Nothing stopping you is there? Ya FUBAR.
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!
Sorry S.E., you can’t survive on your hot looks forever.
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.
Pinging some fellow fans of El Rushbo...
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 think she IS an atheist, I believe I heard her say it once.
If SE Cupp has any fans here, they’re in the wrong place.
Her hot factor just dropped to zero....below freezing zero...
If I ever see her on tv again, I’m going to turn the sound off.
Can’t stand the sound of harpies...
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.”
Something went wrong with her. I just can’t trust these light weight bimbos on tv sometimes. I support Rush Limbaugh. S.E. Cupp sounds like Meghan McCain now.
Call him out for what exactly? It’s sometimes handy to know the charges before pronouncing guilt.
“But he’s not particularly deep...”
Please explain, what sort of depth do you feel he is lacking?
They don’t seem to see the disconnect.
Rubio has become a target of liberals therefore he is ok by me at the moment. As Rush says they tell us who they fear. They fear Rubio, I’ll take what I can get.
Bo idea. She didn’t elaborate.
NO idea. She didn’t elaborate.
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 partys 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 partys loudest voices sound far more right than center. The voters in Kristen Soltis Andersons 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. Cupps 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 whos against gay marriage, Cupp told me, Id say: Dont change your beliefs, just say legislatively this is not a priority, and Im not going to take away someones right. And if abortion or gay marriage is your No. 1 issue, Im not your guy.
I tried to imagine how Cupps 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 partys image remains hard to ignore. When I brought up the subject of the Tea Party to Cupp, she said: People arent 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 dont know it. Again, thats a messaging issue, thats not a principle issue.
She went on to say, I dont think we win by subtraction meaning, by casting out the partys right wing to entice the centrists. Instead, Cupp and her fellow travelers hope to revive Lee Atwaters 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 partys most extreme wing intimidate other Republicans into legislating like extremists themselves, thereby further tarnishing the partys 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 isnt just the far right that shows up at the polls.
No wonder we’re doomed. A Guy approves of legalizing illegal aliens and the right supports him regardless.
Well take what you get. Just have the integrity to not complain later.
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?
She’s calling it brave on twitter. How brave is it to hate on Rush? They all do it.
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 Proximuss 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.

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.
Good luck with that!
Where does MSNBC keep finding these new scumbag liberal mice to put on the air?
They seem to multiply like cockroaches.
You mistake me as anti-Rush. I’m not. And I tune in at least once a week. He’s good at inside baseball. Just not a good spokesman to the uninitiated. RWR had that nailed-down.
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.
“... win over anyone to our side ...”
And you say you listen to him ..?? I’ve heard people over and over again call in to the program to tell him the exact opposite. They say they have been a liberal or dem for all their life but for (and they explain how they began listening to him) and how he has changed their lives.
He’s drawing people to him all the time .. because people are looking for the truth; and they know it when they hear it.
I'm calling you a liar.
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.
Well, Rush is not RWR - Rush is Rush .. but Rush believes more in RWR than anybody that I’ve ever known or met.
I listen every day. Rush knows more about what’s really going on than anybody else.
