RUSH: I'm gonna break this down in even more detail as the program unfolds. Lugar has issued a very lengthy and quite telling statement. Lugar is comparing his defeat to the end of reason, the end of the Republican Party, the end of compromise, the end of people working together. Lugar is saying that his defeat is a bad thing. It's gonna lead to partisanship and rancor.
It's gonna lead to the end. The Senate is gonna descend now. It's not gonna be nearly the august body it has been. Not because he's not there. He's not that kind of an ego guy. It's clear he's a moderate, establishment guy who doesn't want to argue with anybody about anything. He's not a conservative, and he's part of Republican establishment that thinks conservatives are the problem, not Democrats.
There's a headline from the Associated Press, dateline Washington. Kasie Hunt is the authoress. The headline says it all: "Primaries Reflect Conservative Enthusiasm for 2012." This was not what they were expecting to write today. I guarantee you. I think maybe down deep (in parts of their bodies and their minds that they seldom really tap into), they know. They know the country doesn't want any more of them. They know the country doesn't want any more of Obama.
But they've got the media on their side. They read the media every day; they watch television every day. They live in a world where an entirely fraudulent picture of this country is presented every day, and they end up believing it. So in part they are shocked and surprised. Richard Lugar has lived in the Washington suburbs since 1977, since he was elected to the Senate. He doesn't have a residence in Indiana.
That's what I call REAL inside the Beltway.
But even so -- even so, ladies and gentlemen -- we probably have to admit that Dick Lugar is more of an Indianan than Elizabeth Warren is an Indian, even though he's not got a residence there.
RUSH: So the big news yesterday was two things. The evidence that the Tea Party is alive and kicking and ready to make 2012 look just like 2010. Because that's what yesterday was. Yesterday was the continuation of the 2010 midterm elections. The Democrats in some places, Democrat voters, launched a war on Obama. The Democrats did not turn out in Wisconsin, despite millions of dollars spent by unions.
Republicans turned out in greater numbers to vote for Scott Walker when they didn't need to. He wasn't challenged. There was no reason for Republicans to show up whatsoever. Why did they, then? Why did more people vote for Scott Walker yesterday in Wisconsin than the two Democrats (who are in a very heated contest) combined? The answer is simple: Republicans are waiting to be unleashed! Conservatives, more specifically, are fed up. Conservatives are fit to be tied.
They're angry as how they're being portrayed in the media. They're angry at how Obama's being propped up. They're angry at the lack of truth being reported about their country. They can't wait to show up and show the rest of the country what's really going on. They can't wait to prove who they are and who this country is. That's why Republican turnout's through it roof. That's why conservative turnout is through the roof.
People love their country, and this is how they show it. This is how they answer all the lies, the misrepresentations, all of the faux journalism that's taking place. "Okay, you want some reality? Here's an election. Take this!"
“Richard Lugar has lived in the Washington suburbs since 1977, since he was elected to the Senate. He doesn’t have a residence in Indiana.”
Don’t they have to at least maintain an apartment or hotel room in the state they claim to represent?
I’ll speak about Wisconsin.
We in Wisconsin have had this crap shoved in our face EVERY SINGLE DAY for nearly a year and a half. The bumper stickers on every Prius and Suburu. The corrupt media doing everything they can do wack Walker. The unceasing RANTS by the left-wing wacko squads.
Unleashed? Absolutely unleashed! Republicans across this state have been quietly tasting the viniger on their teeth waiting, just waiting to spit it OUT! And that’s what happened yesterday and that’s what will happen again next month.
Rush is DEAD ON in this analysis on every point he makes — DEAD ON.
RELEASE THE HOUNDS!!
I spent last summer in WI. Beautiful state, wonderful people. I can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed 4th of July so very much - flags and patriotism EVERYWHERE.
Too bad the socialist romney is the standard bearer for the GOP... (unless the GOP gets a clue and changes this up at the convention)...
What a shame...
Ill direct my efforts towards worthy candidates, but i will NOT vote for or support Romney in any way. In fact I will actively work to bring his ass down along with the progressive GOP-e.
All but President. Although Virgil Goode will be good to vote for.
Conservatism threatens the Republican power structure as much as it threatens the Democrats. That fact is precisely why the Republican party has seen to it that Romney is their standard bearer. He is the most unlikable of all potential candidates by conservatives. The only real hope for Republican RINOs is to reelect Obama. To accomplish this they need a Romney candidacy. Neither the Republican nor the Democrat power structures acknowledge the overwhelming opposition to both their camps. Look for a stealth candidate in a third party run. There are several likely prospects. Among them are Ron Paul and Sarah Palin.
Revolution is in the air. The Marxists and the Do Nothings will not be pleased with the result.
I hope you will be happy if that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave gets reelected and finishes his destruction of this great country
Nope. I think he won a court challenge. But the Constitution says he needs to live there, but that may have been only for the first election. Senate rules got mucked up when they passed the constitutional amendment to take the power of Senate election from the state legislatures and gave it to the mobs.
Release the Kracken!!
Blame the GOP-e... Not me.
I think Rush is wrong on this one, because I visit FR every day and have read how we don’t have a chance, conservatives are disheartened, Romney is Obama-lite, the election’s already in-the-bag for our Dear Leader, “I’ll never vote for Romney”, etc.
As for me, I’m a broken glass voter this time. BEATING BARACK trumps all.
Same here! My goal is to watch obozo be a one term president.
Well if enough conservatives get elected to Senate as well as more in the House, they could very well put Mitt’s feet to the fire.
I remember from history lessons that Robert Kennedy won the US Senate seat from NY in 1964 but he couldn’t vote that year because he hadn’t met the residency requirement.
I’m pretty sure there are exceptions to every law that specifies lenience if your name is spelled K-E-N-N-E-D-Y.
