Rush Limbaugh Predicts Republican 'Wave' in Midterm Elections
NewsMax ^ | 02/13/2014 | Cathy Burke

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday predicted frustrated voters will create "a wave election like 2010" in this year's midterms, kicking out Democrats "every chance they get."

On his daily radio show, Limbaugh pointed to "plenty of evidence" for the potential sweep, citing the retirement announcement last month of California liberal icon Rep. Henry Waxman and several other Democrats.

"They're in the swan's song portion of their lives anyway," Limbaugh said. "Waxman, he doesn't want to be a member of a minority in the House of Representatives, where basically all they're doing is writing executive orders for [President Barack] Obama . . . These people don't want to be in the minority. It's no fun."

Here’s Limbaugh’s exact quote:

“I’m gonna go out on a limb here, I fully expect the 2014 midterms to be a wave election like 2010. I think the people of this country are gonna sweep Democrats out of office every chance they get, every opportunity they get.”

I came across an afternoon show today on one of the alphabet channels. Pictured was stock video of Rush and multiple people remarking about his comments regarding Sandra Fluke and how that will impact women in business roles. Nothing new but one bumble head who was woefully nervous and seemingly espousing feminist superiority (something about that was on the graphic) in her delivery said “Companies are literally taking money out of Rush’s pockets to this day.” Literally? I hope he slaps their hands. The last line is intended sarcasm.

And the victorious RINO’s will trash us Tea Party conservatives again post victory while we’re the ones voting against rotten demoRats the greater of the two evils. A catch 22 scenario.

He tries to rally the troops, but he is often wrong.

Rush also thought by voting for Zero in the primaries would stop Clinton from winning the nomination and McLoser would win in a landslide election b/c no one would vote for Zero.

I rate Rush’s predictions right up there with Karl Rove and Globull Warmers

After which the majority Republicans will appoint every special prosecutor DemoRats ask for and require those investigated to answer unlimited questioning without legal or Constitutional protection.

When Nancy Pelosi runs ads in her own district CONDEMNING and DISTANCING herself from Obamacare --- you know the Dem's are in trouble.

Question is, can the STUPID PARTY stop itself from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory again?

Glass half empty, eh?

It takes more than just one election cycle to drain the swamp. It'll probably take several...maybe more.

It's an uphill battle to reverse 100 years of decline and degradation in our government, but reclaiming our country is worth every bruised knuckle.

More like 3/4 empty and leaking into 2016.

But we’ll see if the country has learned anything, soon enough.

Pulling the GOPe to victory whether they like it or not, kicking and scratching us all the way? Knowing we won’t get gratitude either.

Want a nice morale booster?

Click on the source link to almost any article posted here, and read the comments section. Even at liberal news sites, the replies run overwhelmingly to the right. Libs are oftentimes outnumbered 100 to 1 in the comments.

And Americans are livid. I mean, fit to be tied. Just madder'n hell. I don't think I've ever seen so much raw anger about the gov't expressed online, and it's everywhere.

If I were an outsider who didn't know anything about the U.S., and started reading the commentary sections at U.S. news sites, I'd think this place was on the verge of a revolution.

Funny thing is, we've so clearly identified the enemy within, that I no longer consider that we're pulling them anywhere. Mostly, we're giving them the boot wherever and whenever we can, and taking the party back.

It's a process that's working, hence all the name calling from the so-called Republican leadership against the Tea Party.

There's a disturbance in the force --- it's as if thousands of quisling RINOs all cried out at once.

Some troops refuse to be rallied or act as a cohesive unit.....

I hope Rush is right. If we got Tea Party candidates, we will win. If RINOs are candidates, the Dems will win.

I believe Rush is wrong on this one.

What are the Republicans giving the conservative wing of the base to vote for?

After securing a majority in the House for them, conservative TEA Partiers have been smeared by the GOP-e.

The GOP “leadership” has surrendered on every key economic issue—Boner’s collusion with the Dems on the debt limit was a direct thumb in the eye.

Obama runs a lawless administration because Republicans are afraid of being called racists by the MSM if they try to stop him (which will happen regardless of what they do).

Yep—I’m really motivated to go to the polls in NOV.

I might actually vote for a Democrat for the first time. At least then I know what I’m getting.

It's a shame that doesn't translate to votes.

Of course, if we could get rid of 'Rat vote fraud, it very well might. That's why they fight so damned hard to block photo ID requirements.

It does, when the party runs real conservatives. When they run RINOs - not so much.
