    Did you know that many of the talk radio hosts that you listen to on a regular basis use the same company to broadcast their shows? Clear Channel boasts names like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and even Coast to Coast AM! Michael Savage is TRN, but is on a lot of Clear Channel stations. Clear Channel is the largest owner of radio stations in the United State [...] Did you know that Clear Channel is owned (in large part) by Bain Capital? On Friday, November 17, 2006, Clear Channel announced that it was going private and...

    Right wing rips Gingrich, Perry for attacks on Romney, capitalismBy Justin Sink - 01/11/12 12:31 PM ET Conservatives are savaging Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry for their attacks on Mitt Romney’s years at the private-equity firm Bain Capital. The attacks from Gingrich and Perry, whose presidential campaigns are on life support, are meant to resonate in South Carolina, the next state on the GOP calendar and a place hit hard by the economic downturn. Yet in slamming Romney as a corporate raider, the two candidates fighting for their party’s right-wing might have done what Romney never seemed capable of: rallying...

    Legall Insurrection ^ | 1/11/2012 | William Jacobson
    Politico has a story about Newt agreeing not to go after Romney any more about Bain, and Newt was just on Hannity’s radio show on the issue. (I’ll post the audio if I can get it.) Newt said there are three or four instances where the record is really bad and Romney needs to defend it. Newt said the challenge is not to the model but how Romney acted in specific instances, and how odd it is that Romney runs on his business record but doesn’t want to discuss the record. Newt made the point that it is impossible to...

    RUSH: Folks, I realize this is serious out there, and at some point I may have to issue a fatwa to stop this. If I sense it's really getting out of hand, of course I'll take action. I'll stand up and I'll just tell everybody here involved, "Cut this out and get serious." I don't want to bleed on any of you. It's unbecoming (sigh), but you don't know what being surrounded by negativism is. I am surrounded by it. It takes a concerted effort on my part every day to avoid it, to not be affected by it. I...

    LANDSLIDE: Limbaugh Predicts 2012 Election Rush Limbaugh predicts 2012 outcome Radio host says pollsters wrong about presidential race By Joe Kovacs PALM BEACH, Fla. – While polls across America show Barack Obama in a tight race for president with potential Republican nominees, top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh doesn’t think the outcome of the race will even be close. “If the election were today, it would be a landslide loss,” Limbaugh said this afternoon. “Let me define landslide: five to seven points. It’d be big. It would be huge.” “Make no mistake about it,” he continued. “Of this I am as...

    This is an appeal to all long-time conservatives. Let's start lining up behind Newt Gingrich, as Thomas Sowell, Art Laffer, JC Watts, Jim Robinson (Free Republic honcho) and others have. The hazzard of holding back an endorsement is that the media, pudits and PAC TV commercials will continue to shape negative opinion against Newt and we may lose our best conservative warrior. The result of the media, pundit and PAC TV onslaught may cause the nominee to be Romney or Santorum. Romney is a moderate and Santorum does not have the experience to Push the conservative agenda in the general...

From what I'm told, it's where the rich people of Cleveland live. And Obama was there, at Shaker Heights High School speaking about the economy and I'm told the students laughed at him, not with him, when he told them that they inspire him. OBAMA: I want you to know, you're the reason why I ran for this office in the first place. (cheers) You...

CALLER: I was listening yesterday and getting increasingly frustrated with a lot of people calling in to support Romney but they seem to have a short-term memory when it comes to the behavior of the press just prior to the national election in the fact that we saw the press systematically support John McCain. They praised him for being a "maverick," going against his party. He was all buddy-buddy with the...

    Daily Caller ^ | January 6, 2012 | Yates Walker
    Mitt Romney will be the GOP nominee unless Rush Limbaugh decides he shouldn’t be. Conservatives adore and revere Rush. We love his show. We buy his products. Someday in the distant future, we will mourn his loss. Rush appeals to our reason. He amazes us with his oratory, dazzles us with his wit. He ignites our passions, buttresses our beliefs and sharpens our arguments. Bestselling author and screenwriter Andrew Klavan aptly compared Rush Limbaugh to Elvis, both as a cultural phenomenon and an agent of change. El Rushbo is in a group by himself. He is one of one. Over...

    Given the billions of dollars in new spending and tax cuts Congress approved Friday morning, it is surprising just how few lawmakers had a hand in the final denouement. All told, with such momentous issues at stake, only a dozen lawmakers were present for the action, which happened in an amazing 2½ minutes of total floor time. The Senate went first, gaveling into session at 9:30 with just Majority Leader Harry Reid on the floor and Sen. Mark Warner presiding. Mr. Reid read out a preapproved agreement that automatically gave Senate approval to a two-month payroll tax cut once the...

A caller was venting about our side failing to "get the word out"...the guy nearly ver batim took what was in my head and spoke it. However, Mark actually blew it...rare for him. Let me explain. The caller vented that our side should be using YouTube videos and such to explain our points and get the word out. I have to agree. My point isn't to blame Mark, who said folks can go to Rush's website for...
  • Rush Limbaugh’s Fake Ron Paul Ad Will Not Be A Hit With Ron Paul Fans

    Mediaite ^ | December 17, 2011 | Frances Martel
    At this point, Rush Limbaugh‘s offensive against Rep. Ron Paul has become something of a regular feature on his program. So it’s not entirely surprising that Limbaugh’s anti-Paulism has seeped into his commercials, too– or at least in parody. This week, Limbaugh debuted a “pro” Rep. Paul ad that featured the “candidate” arguing “the greatest danger is not from Iran, it’s from us overreacting.” Surely this will go over well with Paul fans. “Ron Paul has recorded a commercial for us,” Limbaugh joked, before a commercial played featuring a fairly good (albeit a little caricatured) voice of Ron Paul arguing,...
