  • Rush Limbaugh is a hypocrite when it comes to Trump

    The Hill ^ | November 25, 2015 | Travis Hale
    In the summer of 1992, Rush Limbaugh saved me from myself. I was an 18-year-old high school graduate about to begin college, too impatient to wait for adulthood to come to me. So instead, I went in search of it the only way I knew how: by engulfing myself in presidential politics and the fascinating campaigns that summer between Bill Clinton, George Bush and Ross Perot. Like many idealistic teens, I was at first drawn to the youthful Clinton campaign and Fleetwood Mac's cheerful command to "Don't stop thinking about tomorrow." But then I started listening to Limbaugh and it...

The Establishment stuck Republicans with Mitt Romney, who couldnt use the issue because he was responsible for imposing ObamaCares prototype on Massachusetts.

    RUSH: A new Fox poll out yesterday, last night shows Donald Trump is just soaring. Trump is gaining ground on everybody in the GOP field and over Hillary. It's a Fox News poll, NBC poll, and in both of these polls, Hillary, the bottom is starting to fall out identically, exactly as it started to happen in 2008. And that's why the Democrats are starting to push out these stories about what a great guy Biden is and those gaffes that he makes, why, they just make him more lovable. That's old Joe. Telling the guy in a wheelchair to...

    RUSH: By the way, Joe Biden is... It's looking serious. I don't think there's any doubt about it. Once we learned that after his son passed away -- once they leaked the news -- that on his deathbed the son of Joe Biden, Beau Biden, urged his father to run, we kind of knew that confidence coming. And it looks like it is. Also, just to show you how unsettled the Democrat side -- and there's apparently big time panic (finally; should have been in there a long time) settling in regarding Hillary. Because now there's news out there that...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Chris in Raleigh, North Carolina. Great to have you, sir, on the EIB Network. Hello. CALLER: Dittos, Rush, and I would like to say that the reason why Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump are liked in this country is because you're not out trashing the country on a daily basis. RUSH: Interesting observation. You think that's all it is? CALLER: You know, you listen to Trump and when he talks about somebody, he says, "I met this great guy," or, "I did this great thing," or, "I go to this wonderful golf course, I met these awesome...
  • Trump Taps Into a Voter Bloc the GOP Needs to Win (Hint: It's Not Latinos)

    RUSH: No, no, no. I've not forgotten where I was in the Trump story about the Trump campaign. And a mistake that the Republican Party is making is thinking they need to improve their standing with Latinos and Hispanic voters to win. Now, there's nothing wrong if they do that, but that's not the road to victory. That's not what they have to do. Romney's already proven it. And when you hear me run the numbers, report the numbers that already had been run on what it would have taken... I'll cut to the chase. For Romney to have won,...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I've been thinking about this. We are all inundated by each other, every day, with e-mails, phone calls, texts, what have you, of utter incredulity over what's happened to the Republican Party. It's just too weird, folks. There just isn't any serious opposition to anything that the Democrat Party wants. Remember Angelo Codevilla? He's back. He had that great place on the ruling class that I read in its entirety to you when he published it, and he then turned it into a book. He's back with his thoughts on Trump, and I found it at the...

    RUSH: To the audio sound bites first quickly. I want to remind you just to hear it from my own lips. Last Monday on this program. RUSH: That was last Monday. I was warning everybody that Trump's not playing by the rules, and it really is an important point. I know I've made this over and over again, but it's required, particularly to make impressions on low-information voters. The fact is when the media, Washington establishment, whoever, starts acting outraged over something a public figure said... They're doing it now with Huckabee, by the way, over what he said about...

    The professional hand-wringers are freaking out over Donald Trump's straight talk while displaying abysmal indifference to the deserved targets of Trump's charges. The United States is incinerating, but all they can think about is Trump's heated rhetoric. Trump is resonating because, as a presidential candidate, he is giving public voice to many of the concerns that have Americans beside themselves. Some commentators have called attention to these issues for years, but it's different when a candidate does it, especially a Republican candidate. Democratic candidates have no fear of making controversial statements or even of taking extreme positions, because the liberal...

    RUSH: Today is Thursday. Last weekend was four days ago. Depending on which day of the weekend you go back to, it could be five days ago. And if you have wishful thinking about weekends it could be six days ago, all the way back to last Friday. What happened last weekend? Donald Trump supposedly took himself out of the presidential race with one sentence about John McCain. I mean, that's what the conventional wisdom told us. From the moment it was reported that Trump said he wasn't impressed with McCain because he's not impressed with people that get captured,...

    RUSH: As I knew we could, we've gone back to the archives, the Grooveyard of Forgotten Sound Bites, and we have from 2007 the opening of the bit that parodies exactly what's happening in the Drive-By Media this moment, today and last night. This is on the Fox News Channel's 1/2 Hour News Hour. By the way, I starred in a number of episodes of this program, as president of the United States, as myself, it was a lot of fun. But, anyway, this is from the pilot episode, episode number one. It's 2007. FEMALE ANCHOR: Six men have just...
