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.
McCain beats Hillary. Obama beats McCain.
There are conservatives who are describing this GOP Primary Election of 2008 as "the worst ever".
Later we can talk about what went wrong. But for the March 4th Primary states, they have a choice of:
Texas GOP Conservatives: Do NOT waste your vote by voting for Democrats.
·And no one should be voting for `corruption personified'!· GOP Conservatives, there is conservative work to be done in the Republican Primary!
Can someone please confirm that Duncan Hunter is on the ballot in Texas and Rhode Island.
Can Democrats in Texas `cross over' and vote in the GOP Primary? If so, Texas Conservative Democrats and Union members should `cross over' and Vote for conservative California Congressman Duncan Hunter!
Please confirm that Fred Thompson is on the ballot in Ohio (& TX).
Conservatives in Vermont should consider voting for Huck.
He does NOT yet have the necessary delegate count that he needs to clinch the nomination. There is still time to derail this disaster already waiting to happen.

(Watch Sean, Rush, Laura, Mark, Michelle et.al. rationalize 1 by 1 & enter the RINO/McCain column)
Hold your nose once more and Vote McC...?? No.
Re-draft Duncan Hunter into the Presidential Race = (With all of the written and video obituaries which have found their way onto internet regarding the recent demise of Congressman Duncan Hunter's presidential campaign, we at NWCL would like to offer this gem. There are other voices out there who believe it is still not too late).

Make that Hillary “presents” the opportunity to bloody obama up! PIMF!
>> McCain beats Hillary. Obama beats McCain. Any questions?
No questions. Your analysis is brilliant, and so well supported.
Please forgive me if I choose to disregard it as incorrect.
Don’t you understand people???
The big bone the talk radio junket has been nawing on for years is about to be over. Hillary is about to be irrelevant. Sean Hannity’s “Hillary train” is about to be derailed.
This is about Rush and the other’s ratings. This is a business first and foremost and anyone thinks otherwise is niave.
So is this some new political rock paper scissors game?
That can be taken care of with a plane crash in bad weather.

THANK YOU!! See my post 47
“McCain is toast no matter. I say Obama is far better than Hillary.”
If we are to think that McCain is toast no matter what, then I would vote for Huckabee just to try to get a brokered convention for our side. But right now, McCain is the nominee and sure hope he wins in November over Obama or Hillary. The thought of either one in the White House is just too hard to take! I much rather have four years of McCain even though I will hold my nose to vote for him.
Hussein would be far worse than Hitlery and Rush (and I) know it. Nevertheless, I would hold my nose and vote for McLame as the best of the worst of the three.
That if he keeps his job after Hillary Clinton is elected and no Free Republic as well if she is President.
Those who have listened carefully to Rush understand perfectly well what he’s doing.
He began his recent push for Hillary by asking this question: Once Hussein wins the nomination, it’s going to be a white Republican against an African-American. How does the GOP attack Hussein without being smashed with constant charges of “racisim?” You know it’s going to happen (he said).
He actually seemed to think out loud on his show (this was about three weeks ago), although I think he had it already figured out before show time. He talked about some side issues, and then came out with his recommendation: we need to keep Hillary in this as long as we can, to the convention if possible.
By keeping Hillary in, we let her bloody him. We let her make every case against him first, to get some degree of inoculation for the GOP against the race card. This way, we just pick up on charges and arguments she’s already advanced. This way the power of the race card is diminished against us, although we can never make it go away.
This is the reason he gave, and I think it is a good one. If it happens to help his audience numbers, who cares?
If she stays in longer and loses, she draws more negatives against Obama.
I think she is toast winning outright, but let her make a theft with super delegates and the party is torn for decades.
