Skip to comments.Limbaugh Intentionally Throwing November Election to Hillary? (Real Reason He Wants Her to Stay in?)
Posted on 03/03/2008 5:10:55 PM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
There seems to be an inherent inconsistency in how radio host Rush Limbaugh is analyzing Hillary Clinton's chances for election.
On his radio show, he is urging his listeners to vote for her in tomorrow's primaries.
Limbaugh claims to be doing this because he thinks that the longer Clinton stays in the race, the more she'll damage Obama and the party, thereby increasing the chances of a Republican victory in November.
This, however, is contradicted by his statements about how resilient a candidate Mrs. Clinton would be. For example, today he stated that "these Clintons are like cockroaches. They'll be the last thing left after a nuclear blast."
If, as Limbaugh states, Hillary Clinton is such a tough candidate, it makes no sense for him to want her in the race if he truly hopes for a GOP win in November.
All of this leads to the conclusiong that, in fact, Limbaugh wants Hillary to be our next President.
As recently as last month, Limbaugh stated that, if John McCain were the Republican nominee, he would rather see the Democrats win the White House.
If that's the case, perhaps Limbaugh sees Hillary Clinton as a better (and more profitable target) for his program's commentary in the coming years. He already has years of experience mocking the Clintons. Furthermore, attacks on Hillary don't come with the risk of being called a racist, even if wrongly.
Finally, there may be simple profit motive. In the past it has been suggested that a President of one party, increases the circulation of magazines on the other side. Limbaugh, of course, publishes a monthly "Limbaugh Letter" magazine. And, of course, he is widely considered to have enjoyed his greatest popularity during the previous Clinton administration.
If this is true, perhaps Republicans in Texas and Ohio might want to reconsider taking voting advice from Rush in tomorrow's primaries.
And some here as well, apparently.
You got it.
You just look silly when posting something so obviously wrong and uniformed.
“How many times does he have to talk about his 14 foot TV and the other toys he has accumulated? Today he talked about his round of golf at Augusta National with his buddies. Come on.”
Yeah, I guess you’re right. He should stay on point, and keep it really, really serious, every precious minute of every show, for three full hours a day, five days a week. Yeah, that’ll keep us all glued to the radio and energized, won’t it?
Come on. Have you ever truly listened to a full three hours of Rush? Ever? I don’t think you have. If you had, you’d realize just how much keen political analysis that man puts into that three hours a day.
In my opinion, Rush delivers exchange in abundance with his audience. Why else do you think he’s the number one radio host in the country? Because people want to hear about his big screen TVs, his golfing, and his house in Palm Beach?
Geeez, grow up already...
35 years of intense public scrunity of every public breath.
Has there EVER been any evidence that the Hildebest drinks beer.
Ask the media "Hey, Hitlary asslickers, How often does the Beast sit around and schmooze with the Press over a beer?
Even happen before? I don't recall reporting on it?
Have heard she likes to hit the Vino before bed - very respectable.
Never heard of her swilling beer before. Must be some crazy coinsidence that there are a couple of little votes tomorrow.
His support of Buchanan was always tongue in cheek, and designed to kick the Bush candidacy in the butt to get it moving. Unfortunately, not even the successful Perot candidacy did that job.
However, 50% of the people of this country, people of every party, already hate Hillary. That's a nice head start when your candidate is as weak as McCain.
Not if I can help it!!!
I'm voting for Ralph Nader!!!
A little GANG-GREEN never hurt anybody!!! (snort!)(just ask McCain)
He also said Hillary would never be elected senator. And I believe he said she wouldn’t run for prez, but I could be wrong on that.
Not me. I will cross over and vote for The Magic Negro tomorrow.
But, while bloody convention would be an *acceptable* outcome for me personally, what I REALLY want is to see the beyotchs political coffin nailed shut. Finally and with no hope of escaping to terrorize the countryside ever again.
The only way this happens is to have her lose the general. If McCain wins over Obama, she will be made to look like a martyr who was screwed and should have been the nominee. She will come back in 2012 stronger than ever.
I think a drug has been prescribed for Hillary. She hasn’t cried in two days.
I don’t know why people think Hillary is easier to beat, if she does steal the nomination she will just select Obama as VP and that fusion will wipe McCain out in a landslide.
After Rush’s drug addiction I don’t listen to a word he says about anything. Sorry, hypocrites don’t deserve the time of day. He influences dunces, that’s the only audience he has left. His impact on this election will be insignificant.
I'm glad you said that. I was just thinking more or less the same thing.
The longer these two fight it out, the more likely they will have to join together on a fusion ticket to 'unite the party.' On the other hand, if Obama knocks her out today, she will probably get mad and secretly work against him come the general election.
Rush has really tried to screw the proverbial pooch on this one.
