    Well I aint calling em immigrants unless they are doing it legally. So I guess that leaves wetbacks which no one seems to like. People seem to think its offensive. I personally could care less what an illegal thinks. If I cant call em aliens and wetbacks what the hell do I call the vermin?

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Foreigners is another.....although, again with myself. I considered how they are coming here to be Illegal. Since they are not following the way Most others do.

    well, if you are left deciding between "alien", "wetback" ,and "vermin".. I would suggest not calling them anything.... I'd suggest not talking at all.

    Dont I remember Romney's team complaining about Rush negatively impacting their campaign. I will see if I can google it in a bit.

    None call any shots in the GOP.....more than likely contributes, but definitely none call any shots or hold any power in the GOP.

    Yeah and? What would that have to do with Limbaugh being a leader of the GOP?

    Do you know who Michael Medved is? Why is he bigger than Limbaugh in the GOP? Yet he isn't a Leader either.

    the correct term is "illegal aliens" because that is what the 1924 law states.

    Although myself I would have went with someone else other than Media Matters for the real dope on Limbaugh.
    You'll like this source even less, but its from 2012, closing the gap from 94. That means Rush has been defacto voice of GOP for 20 years.
    George Will: Republican Leaders Are Afraid of Rush Limbaugh - ABC News
    ABC's George Will told me Sunday on "This Week" that GOP leaders have steered clear of harshly denouncing Limbaugh's comments because "Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh."

    "[House Speaker John] Boehner comes out and says Rush's language was inappropriate. Using the salad fork for your entrée, that's inappropriate. Not this stuff," Will said. "And it was depressing because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh. They want to bomb Iran, but they're afraid of Rush Limbaugh."

    "Folks, if I had demanded Aiken drop out, he would be gone." Rush Limbaugh Aug 21st show. Romney could not get Aiken to drop out, but Rush is confident him just saying the word would have done it? I dont appear to be the only one that thinks he is a Repub leader, he does too. I am not doing many more stupid human tricks to show this but the link below is Rush putting the head of he RNC in his place.

    Here is a good article defining Rush and his political power should anyone still have doubts.
    Rush Limbaugh: The Man Who Ate the G.O.P. | Vanity Fair
    Indeed, for 20 years, three hours a day, nothing in radio has so moved the audience to action as Rush: the Republican base both buys the pre-owned cars he suggests ought to be bought and champions the causes he’s hot on. Nothing in politics, or the news cycle, is as direct and powerful as this. In seconds, he can move an awesome tide, unleashing e-mail, telephone calls, and scary Web-site rage. Minutes after R.N.C. chairman Steele tried to suggest to CNN that he, rather than Rush, was the bona fide leader of the party, Rush, reached for comment, merely said he’d respond on the air—which must have sent a chill down Steele’s spine.
