Open letter to Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and all God fearing, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, strong defense conservative grassroots patriots and leaders!!
What are you waiting for?
We know who and what Romney is. It's no secret. In his past he was intentionally to the left of Ted Kennedy.
He campaigned for Roe v Wade as settled law that should be preserved and sustained and he delivered liberal activist judges to do just that.
He campaigned on the platform that abortion should be safe and legal in America and he delivered taxpayer funded abortion in Massachusetts to make it so.
He promised to be better for homosexual rights than Ted Kennedy and he delivered gay marriage in Massachusetts.
He campaigned on and delivered banning "dangerous" guns.
He supports TARP, bailouts, Porkulus, and the government takeover of General Motors. Says they were absolutely necessary and the right thing to do. And says more of the same is needed.
He designed and advocated for mandated socialized healthcare in Massachusetts and pushed it through.
RomneyCare = ObamaCare = CommieCare = taxpayer funded abortion = death panels = socialism = tyranny.
Romney still brags about RomneyCare TODAY!! He would like all 50 states to impose similar socialist plans. These are the indisputable facts and thats really all you need to know about Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney has now bought off Florida Attorney General PAM BONDI, and her mission as his new National Healthcare CZAR is to head up a National Healthcare Task Force to impose socialist RomneyCare-like plans on all fifty states. They claim to be doing this as a tenth amendment states rights effort, but they fail to take into consideration that they must have the consent of the governed before imposing unwanted socialist systems on we the people. Doesnt matter if its federal or state, its still SOCIALISM!! And a state forcing its government approved and controlled top-down socialist program on its citizens against their will, or else, especially with federal backing is FASCISM!! TYRANNY!! It is unwanted, unnecessary, un-American and UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!
As Newt says, We the people are the SOVEREIGNS!!
Together, we can put a stop to this socialist takeover!!
Ronald Reagan warned us that the socialists would try to impose socialism on America through socialist healthcare. Well, here it is. A so-called Republican now wants to impose a socialist healthcare system on us, only he calls it a conservative free-market program. Well, if its a conservative free-market program, why does it use federal and state tax dollars and why does the state have to FORCE it down our throats?
A vote for Romney is a vote for the Socialist States of America!! Dont let it happen on our watch!!
The tea party rose up to resist this tyranny!! The tea party says:
"Force SOCIALIST healthcare down our throats, we shove it up your DONKEYS next election!!"
The next election is here! What are you waiting for?
Newt is a pro-life, Reagan conservative and veteran of the Reagan Revolution of the 80's and leader of the Republican Revolution of the 90's. His rebellion took the Republican majority after it had been held by the democrats for 40 years. And as Speaker, he cut spending, cut taxes, cut the deficit, cut regulations, cut unemployment, blocked socialist healthcare, balanced the budget four years running and he can and will do it again!!
Romney has never lifted a finger for our conservative causes. When asked to name his greatest conservative achievement, he couldn't name even one!! That's because he has no conservative achievements. He is no conservative, never has been!!
What are you waiting for??
Do not allow the GOP-e to shove its establishment elite statist Mitt Romney down our throats!!
You all know that the above is true and 100% factually correct in all respects.
Rush, Sarah, Santorum... GO ROGUE!!
Get on the air, get on your website, get on facebook, get on twitter, get on a plane, but however you do it get on America's side!!
Join the TEA Party, join Newt!!
Annoy the hell out of the GOP-e!! Support and vote for Newt Gingrich for president!!
P.S. Rick Santorum is a great guy and a God fearing pro-life conservative, but he doesn't stand a prayer of a chance in Florida, and he admits that. Florida is a winner take all state. Don't let the GOP-e RINO Mitt Romney have those 50 delegates. Rick Santorum should immediately release his supporters in Florida to vote for Newt as Rick Perry did in South Carolina. And his supporters should do that either way.
NO ObamneyCare!! No Romney!!
God Bless Jim Robinson!
I will never vote for Romney. Not ever. It’s time to take a stand and take our country back! Voting for Mittens is the same as waving the white flag. I won’t ever surrender to abortion promoting, gun grabbing, socialist traitors.
muddler got a zot from Jim - check it out. (muddler ticked me off. I’m at war with Romneybots and Paulbots).
Can we make the suggestion that in Florida the Santorum backers cast their vote for the conservative candidate that can win, Newt.
Heck Yeah. And then, after FL they can go back to supporting Rick. YES!!! How can we get the word to them requesting that they do that?
Oh, and Sarah, it really would be nice if you could take a little trip to Florida and take the stage with Newt. You did it for the RINO McCain, maybe you could find it in your heart to do it for Newt.
I'm going to repost all my arguments to Limbaugh from May 25, 2011, the day that Limbaugh said he totally missed that there was a special election in New York. We ended up having a battle over the air vs. posts here.
The relevant posts from the thread are below:
If Limbaugh endorsed a candidate on his show, it would clear up all the phony, Democrat-stooge, candidate confusion in key races.Then...
Griping about it after the election is wearing thin.
In 2008, Limbaugh refused to endorse primary candidates, and then griped about how the MSM selected our candidates for us.
Same problem then, same problem now.
Destroying candidates you don't like is one thing, but putting your reputation behind a single candidate with an endorsement is something that Limbaugh has steadfastly refused to do during primaries.Then...
If you search my Limbaugh postings in election cycles, you'll see that I mention this time and time again.
Limbaugh is right about not doing it alone.Then...
The Democrats align their talking points with the MSM, with Pelosi in the House and Reid in the Senate, Schumer said he was given words to use each week, etc.
The Republicans do not unify across bodies like this. Boehner and McConnell do not seem to coordinate in a way that creates a greater strategy the way that Pelosi and Reid did.
Limbaugh is right.
Boehner should have coordinated with McConnell so that when the House passed their budget, McConnell was all ready to go to put Reid on the defensive about where the Democrat plan is. Each time the Democrats say that Republicans want to throw grandma off the cliff because of the House Budget, McConnell should have been saying "Where's the Democrat budget? All you can do is criticize Republicans for leading?"
Then, all the Senators deflect all questions during MSM appearances into "Why won't the Democrats show leadership? Where is their plan?"
That's how the Republicans should force the agenda with the MSM.
It's good that Limbaugh is advising candidates to have a conservative message, but he just finished saying how Republicans better get used to the MSM distorting the Republican message.Then...
Having a message is not good enough. They also need the friendly media to help shape and get that message out, because that's what the MSM does for Democrats.
Limbaugh is the closest thing we have to the New York Times' relationsip within the MSM and Democrats.Then...
The NYT sets the daily agenda and the rest of the MSM run with it.
It used to be that Limbaugh set the the talk-radio agenda and the others followed-up on the message.
Lately, with the shake-up in conservative talk-radio (see the threads on Citadel/Fareed Suleman), the medium is disorganized, too.
It's not necessarily a bad thing that the different segments of conservative talk-radio focus on different issues. That helps to focus on the many different issues. But there isn't the tight alignment in messaging like with the DNC-NYT-WaPo-CNN-NBC-CBS-ABC-Congressional Democrats-President.
We have Limbaugh-Hannity-Levin-Savage-Beck, and to a lesser degree Ingraham-Batchelor-Boortz-Hewitt-Medved-local hosts. Occasionally, Congressional Republicans will appear as guests. They don't coordinate around a daily theme, as each is strongly motivated to maintain their own distinctive persona and market.
The difference between liberal/conservative media is stark: Democrats are aligned with news gathering orgs with the legacy mission to report (distort?). Conservatives are aligned with entertainment outlets that inform.
The liberal MSM will never go away or change (one day, the NYT will be demed too big to fail). The conservative outlets have been subjected to radio market forces and manipulation (see again Farid Suleman).
As long as people like Limbaugh say their first priority is to be entertaining, the Republicans with conservative messages to get out will always be underserved when compared to their Democrat counterparts.
While Repulbicans are playing catch-up on organizing their MSM message to be more like the Democrats, the Democrats are already moving onto the next frontier of messaging, social media.Then, to another poster...
Sarah Palin has already figured out how bypass the MSM via the internet social networks, and the MSM are attacking her there as being less serious because the nature of the outlet, while at the same time building up their own presence there.
What people like Limbaugh can do, if they he genuinely believes in the "Golden EIB Microphone" and "Excellence In Broadcasting," then he should back-channel a series of seminars with Congressional Republicans to teach them how to be as effective as he is in messaging.
Who else besides him is seen as the guru of this subject for conservatives? If not him, then who CAN teach our candidates how to do this?
With all due respect, that sounds like echo chamber thinking.Then...
Like you, I am aware of the issues and don't need to hear it from someone else to keep me informed.
But I do believe that people like us are far less a population than we may think.
I do believe that the mass of voters do wait to be told what to think. The numbers are too large to suggest otherwise. There were almost 120 million votes cast for president in 2008, one-third of the US population.
Even if the MSM ratings suggest that only a few million households watch those shows, combined with newspapers, magazines, and comedy shows, people are waiting to be told what to think.
I see Limbaugh's success in two parts: 1) reward for taking the vanguard in conservativism and influencing politics and leadership in our direction, and 2) an investment in ensuring the sustainability of this.Then, to another poster...
There is no doubt that Limbaugh has been successful in mobilizing Republicans by pioneering the AM radio medium to counter the MSM.
But people invested in Limbaugh by supporting his show, supporting his sponsors, supporting his charities, and supporting the knock-offs that Limbaugh inspired.
Now they're looking to him to make due on that investment, and that means sometimes putting aside the stories of golf trips on private jets, smoking cigars with world leaders, and other fruits of his success, and sometimes getting dirty again and paying back the hard returns on that investment to those who expected it when necessary.
We see in hindsight how necessary a time the 2008 election was. The 2010 election was a necessary time. The 2012 election is too consequential to be cavalier about it now.
The NY-26 special election should be a wake-up call on how serious the Democrats are taking all the elections, now including state judicial elections. We need to mobilize all our forces, too, to close the gaps for 2012 that are being shown to us now.
We don't have many leaders who are today in a position to do this now. We only have the few people that we invested in to be in place now to do this.
I'm not saying that Limbaugh is doing it wrong, I'm saying there are key gaps that he's uniquely in a position to address, and that he's in that position because we put him there.Then, to another poster...
Let's also look at the 2006 election. The Democrats took over because of a few key messages:
1. Republicans losing their way, no doubt about that.
2. Democrats hammering on the Mark Foley race in Florida, having held back incriminating, offensive (but not illegal) texts to former House pages, until just 10 weeks before the election. Then, using the Mark Foley incident, they tainted the entire House GOP leadership as being enablers of child molesters. How was the voting public not led to use a single House race in Florida to throw out the entire GOP and put Nancy Pelosi in charge? One example was the "Don't Vote" ads by the AARP to subliminally suggest that people stay home and not bother to vote.
3. Democrats running faux conservatives in conservative districts, and then getting Republicans to vote for them.
I'll agree with you that today, people have come to see what they did wrong in 2006, and the wave threw out the faux conservative Democrats that they installed in 2006. It took more than clear messages to do that in 2010, though. It also took those faux conservative Democrats to side with the majority over their stated principles in ramming through the health care legislation against the population's wishes.
But I'm not convinced yet that the public has grown past being led by slick messages.
Using your analogy, I see it as we're playing baseball while the Democrats are playing football.PJ
You can argue over how to get more base hits, while I argue about how not to get tackled anymore.
we so know Romney’s a Massachusetts politician and we do know them well: Kennedys and the wolf in sheep’s clothing...Scott Brown. say anything and do anything to get elected!
It’s because our political allies, at heart, are party-line Republicans. I like Mark Levin, Jim DeMint, and Sarah Palin, but if Romney wins the nomination, they’ll turn right around and tell us to pull the ‘R’ lever. And they know that Romney is the enemy within just as well as we do.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
-Marcus Tullius Cicero
We need Palin to introduce Newt or show up on some stage somewhere with him. We need something that will make the news and shift the momentum to Newt.
Sanatorium dropping out and endorsing would also do the trick.
After McCain chose Sarah as his VP, I held my nose and decided to vote for him—and speak no evil of him during the campaign.
Well, his handlers did everything they could to undermine Sarah, and McCain did everything he could to hand the election to Obama. And he succeeded.
That was the last time. I will not vote for Romney no matter who he chooses as his VP. And if Ron Paul runs third party, I will not vote for him, either.
If the GOP manages to push Romney on us, they will commit suicide. They’ve come pretty close to it before, but this time, they will be finished. The only problem with that is that our country may be finished, too.
I’m still praying that some solution will present itself, God willing. But never Romney, and never Ron Paul.
The Republicans have been willing to support the Democrats, if necessary, so as to get their share of the pork. Those days are over. The GOP will go the way of the Whigs if they persist on this course—as they seem more determined than ever to do.
There may still be a way out of this mess, but I won’t suggest what it might be right now. The immediate thing is to vote for Newt, who has proved himself to be the candidate whom the RINO Establishment Pork Gobblers fear most. If he succeeds, he will owe them NOTHING. He can, instead, work for our country’s true welfare.
Cubans in FL are breaking for Newt. Read this written by a Cuban-American Radio Talk-Show host.

Press release worthy.
Imho, it needs nailed to the top of the proverbial church door til at least Wednesday morning .
That’s why I brought the idea to Jim...Put it on Sarah’facebook page and have a few likes. It’s also been sent to Rush...You might want to send your own message Elrushbo@eibnet.com
Imagine that both Rick and Dr Paul have web pages with contact information. If you find the links post them back here for all. Thanks.
Sarah not so much.
I think the fact that Todd came out for Newt and she supported him speaks volumes.But will she come out full fledged and campaign with him,go on the road with Newt or get into the daily campaign routine? Hard to say. Remains to be seen.
She could easily make all the difference.
Question is will she or not?
Well said Jim.
Another problem is that the big talk radio guys will not admit two things about Rick Santorum, who I agree is a good guy:
A: he cannot win.
B: he has some very bad big government positions he has voted for and his overall voting record is not spectacular.
Once you realize those two things, and the big talkers have not for some reason, you know Newt is the only answer!!
That cant be said enough. The votes going to both Newt and Santorum beat Romney handily. Santorum supporters may be trying to make a statement but the result of that statement will be an increase in the chances we get Romney. They will have to live with that result should it happen.
Romney/Obamacare is game, set, match, it’s implementation will complete the Europeanization/Socialization of the USA turning us into the United Socialized States of America.
Rush, it’s time you broke with tradition!
Mitt Romney is turning the Republican into a giant Charlie Foxtrot.
How can you possibly say that? Do you believe that the Santorum supporters would switch to Romney? I would say thats highly unlikely. With Santorum out Newt would beat Romney handily.
“Its because our political allies, at heart, are party-line Republicans. I like Mark Levin, Jim DeMint, and Sarah Palin, but if Romney wins the nomination, theyll turn right around and tell us to pull the R lever. And they know that Romney is the enemy within just as well as we do.”
Ding ding ding-we have a winner!
They are all politicians. Put faith in their ideas but never in them. They will ALWAYS disappoint you.
Time to exercise the Rolodex!

Outstanding letter, Jim!
Message on this thread are consistant with Newt’s interview on FOX Sunday this AM.
I’ll second that!
Good point - of course, I could file that under category B also.....
People forget that Florida had their number of delegates cut in half because they pushed up the date of their primary. 50 delegates is big, but not huge.
I don’t blame some top conservative talkers for not getting four-square behind Newt at this point. It’s way too early and too much can still change. There might even be someone who jumps off the sideline and changes the whole equation.
I’m guessing there are still some bombshells that haven’t come out and the talkers who jump in too early could end up with egg on their faces. Nothing the libs would like better than to hear that a Limbaugh or Palin endorsed a candidate with a shaky past or an untenable campaign position.
No thanks. I prefer my fingers to the talking. On my keyboard.
We are up against the entire Republican establishment. It’s now or never!! Do or die!!
Palin and Hannity have contracts that say they can’t endorse or campaign for any candidate. Rush just has his own reasons. If our Forefathers resembled our current leaders we would still be subjects of the King.
Pray for America
You are NOT the only one that feels this way. Rush was my initiation into understanding conservatism, not very many years ago, like alot of the others here. But this last year I have begun to notice he is just phoning it in... and when he was hinting about 2ifbytea before he actually announced it, I felt sure it was going to be a real conservative cable network with some of his rich buddies and real conservatives... since he often says this is the most important election of our lifetime and in America’s history. His answer to the most important election in America’s history was to open a tea company trading off a true patriot’s namesake, and make his wife CEO. He did that with his other wives, also.
Only I think I have figured it out: Rush supports Romney, he endorsed him in 08, and he may fight with the media because it gets his name mentioned, but he won’t go against his rich friends and support Newt, he won’t risk getting kicked of some dinner-party-invite list of the rich and famous.
If someone convincingly knows why my summary isn’t correct, I would appreciate if they would post it here, as it makes me very very sad.
Since the debate on Thursday, Romney has gained significant traction in Florida with the influence-peddling allegations against Newt. The number of stories in the media about Newt's role at Freddie Mac has grown.
Romney campaigned on it all weekend. He appeared in front of foreclosed homes with the former homeowners to slam Newt for not blowing the whistle on Freddie Mac's practices. Newt has been damaged by the allegations because Floridians are still angry over and feeling the consequences of the 2007 housing crisis.
The FR article about Romney's affordable housing push in MA went up mid-afternoon on Friday and not a single conservative news organization or show has picked it up. By comparison, the FR exclusive on Journolist membership was picked up within hours. We know they monitor FR.
If Newt's alleged role in the housing crisis is newsworthy, then so is Romney's more significant role. Will conservative news media report on it before Floridians vote on Tuesday? I doubt it.
Rush needs to endorse Newt when his endorsement will matter, NOW. Waiting for the general election to endorse is a fools choice. If Newt does not get the nomination, we will have a choice of Obama or Obama light (Romney). Rush, get your head out of your backside. This is the most critical election in over a century.
SP has been a large let-down, and RL has underwhelmed me for years .. not that either of them give much of a damn.
Those brass rings they've grabbed hold of must be coated with some serious epoxy . . .
There it is again! I hear this repeated 10 times a day.
Does anyone have any proof this is true about FOX contracts?
I suspect its not. Just something people speculate and repeat over and over.
Here’s a story about Hannity endorsing Hatch.
The GOP-E has made it clear that they want to kick us Tea Party types to the curb—that they think we are just useful idiots. Well, I have news for the GOP-E: Romney will NEVER get my vote!
If Romney is the nominee, I’m goin’ rogue. *pffffft* to the jokers in the RNC/GOP.
Excellent! will send it to as many as possible. Thank you for fighting the good fight.
If there was another bomb to drop on Newt, WIllard would have used it. He is desperate to win Florida.....Look at how much money he’s spent....
This is great! We need all the conservative muscle we can get to take a stand for conservatism and for Newt! No time to lose!
