    Re: Limbaugh Rallies Conservatives to Fight Democrats, Find 'Right Candidate'

    OP, do you take Rush Limbaugh serious enough to warrant a thread in "Breaking News?" Or is it a really, really, really, slow news day?

    It's unfortunate that so many Repubs rely on Rush for leadership.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Limbaugh is Obama's best friend. So long as the right is marginalized by being tied to an extremist like him, the middle will be scared to death to ever vote for them.

    If Republicans want to win again they are going to have to start appealing to moderate voters again. They can't do that if they are beholden to the far right. So long as Limbaugh and his clones have such a strong voice in the conservative movement, the movement will be marginalized more and more. I have said it before and I will again, what the conservative movement does not seem to get is that half the supposed "Reagan Coalition" they keep trying to revive is dead by now. Trying to run as hard core conservatives makes as much sense as a Democrat in 1975 trying to revive the New Deal coalition.

    Realistically, he is just as much of a hack as our past and current presidents are/have been.

    They all push propaganda based on half truths and lies.

    It is just really convenient to go after a talk radio host because he is not government.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Good god man, you guys are implementing New Deal II right now, don't lecture us on old ways. We lost because we didn't listen to Limbaugh for 8 years and spent money like drunken liberals. Please go back to your side of the aisle, we don't need you.

    Seriously, what is Rush Limbaugh going to do to Barack Obama? Why should Obama have "left him alone?" I think any damage Rush could have done, he would have already done.

    Rush is the wrong person to put the GOP back together. The day of his kind of extremist rhetoric is over. I think Republicans are sick of that kind of negative, virulent blabber. At least I hope they are. The campaign that was mounted against Obama was one of the most detestable things the extremist right have ever done. You don't need them trying to fix the damage they did.

    Re: Limbaugh Rallies Conservatives to Fight Democrats, Find 'Right Candidate'

    Since losing the election, Conservatives are split in all directions and some are rallying behind Limbaugh because he has been the only one to be really outspoken thus far. I don't really see it as a big surprise and I think that it was an unwise decision on Obama's part to call Limbaugh out and even give the man attention. It just added more fuel to the fire. Limbaugh's extreme views and comments may rally some Conservatives together, but I think it's going to take a lot more than that to put things together again the way they were before. Conservatives need someone rational to rally them together and I don't see Limbaugh fitting that title.
