    If only the GOP followed him. The GOP has broken away form their conservative, small government principals and have become more moderate and compromising with their core beliefs. Rush is heavily critical of the GOP as well as Democrats.

    I didn't say anything about the GOP. I would agree that Rush is most influential with the members of the GOP. I'm talking about independents, Reps, Dems, Libertarians....whoever....that are conservatives.

    Beck is the loudest, and becoming the most visable to the mainstream because he goes on the attack. However most conservatives I talk to feel that his message is not what we need because of the snotty rhetorical methods he uses. Rush is still the man as far as conservative and constitutional thinking goes.

    Actually, the GOP partisans don't fall completely in line with Rush because he will attack them as well if necessary, he is more in line with actual conservatives rather than any particular party.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Glenn Beck of course. Plus, he is one of the few conservative opinion leaders who defends his stances with good arguments. I may not agree with him in most things, but I recognize his good qualities.
    Obama is a fail...

    Beck does land good points, the problem is he relies too heavily on hyperbole and an "in your face" style, which is fine if you are a conservative, agree with the logic, know he's factually correct, and thus can sit back and laugh. The problem is that when others need to hear the message and absorb it to figure out where they stand, they will be turned off at being the butt of his jokes, or feel slighted in some other way and will automatically tune him out. In this way he is neither a good representative of nor an effective communicator of the message.

    Probably Krauthammer or Drudge.

    People like Beck and Rush convey a message to millions, but they're not the ones who develop that message.

    Krauthammer and Drudge have a limited impact in a way, I voted Rush because of the size of his audience and the fact that he is much more palatable than Beck. If it were due to actual formative input I'd have to go with Alan Keys, Walter E. Williams, George Will, and a few other great minds in the conservative arena.

    With out Beck and Limbaugh their ideas would not get around as much.
