Rush Limbaugh Gets it; Mitt Romney, Get Lost

Monday, May 4, 2009

Rush Limbaugh, who along with Sarah Palin was just named one of Time's Most Influential People, gets it. What I like most about Rush is that he is not competing for elected office, which provides him the freedom to speak the truth without worrying about it costing him popularity. And he called it right today. He called out the fear Republicans have--not of Democrats--but of one of their own, namely Sarah Palin. This fear leads them to make digs and take cheap shots at her, like Mitt Romney did when he commented that they must have been selecting the "cutest" rather than the most influential. This is the second shot I've heard him take at Sarah. I was at CPAC in February when he made the first shot, commenting out of the blue that "Sarah isn't here, but I heard she has a million dollar book deal!" Some of us were left scratching our heads as we were trying to figure out two things: 1) why he found it necessary at the beginning of his speech to point out that she had declined attending to the chagrin of thousands of people, and 2) why he was promoting the book deal rumor that she had already publicly refuted. We knew what he was doing, though. He was trying to say that she couldn't show up for the people, but she was willing to capitalize on her fame by writing a book. The truth was she was back in Alaska doing her job.

No doubt, Romney is planning to run for president again and is trying to aim, shoot, and fire on the one who is likely to be his main competition, but be that as it may, low blows against a member of your own party are definitely NOT "cute." Romney and others in the GOP who have tried to diss or ignore Sarah know she's influential, and therefore a threat to their 2012 aspirations. These insecure creatures should take the advice of Tommy Christopher at Politics Daily. Today I read his comments at Conservatives4Palin:

My advice to any Republican who plans on running for President in 2012 is to be really nice to Sarah Palin. That way, if it doesn't work out (and it won't), they'll at least have a shot at the bottom of her ticket.

That is too good! I love it!!! Another one who gets it.

Like I said at the beginning, Rush Limbaugh gets it as well. Click on the link below and listen to what he said about the GOP contenders and the reason for their bad attitude toward Sarah Palin.

Wise up you people. Are you actually that dense? Did you even listen to what Mitt Romney said in context? There is no way he insulted Sarah Palin or Rush Limbaugh. You people wouldn't know an insult if you launched it. There are people in this world several notches above yourselves. GO MITT ROMNEY, SARAH PALIN AND RUSH LIMBAUGH!

Yes, Anonymous, I heard the comments in context--and I was in the room when he made the first comment at CPAC. So yes, I know an insult when I hear one, and I heard TWO. Go Sarah and Rush! Romney, go home!

Adrienne, great blog here- keep up the good work!

Romney is a gentleman with a lot of character and class- particularly when compared to what we're stuck with no. He said nothing offensive whatsoever, and IMO it is ridiculous to see some sort of wrong.

So move-along people... there's nothing going on here, only more manipulation from the left. The current abhorrent situation in Washington calls for GOP party unity, not playing into Obama's hands by starting the battles of the Republican primary two years early.

Team Obama and the DNC have been employing despicable Alinsky-esque divide-and-conquer/character assassination techniques for months now... stoking fake "fights" like Rush vs. Steele, plus ceaseless ridicule of Jindal, Palin, even shameful distortion of the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Clearly, the strategy is to eliminate GOP rallying points and philosophical framework for 2010/12.

What's been done to Palin and her family by the MSM is beyond-the-pale. But the left is so self-righteous, ala USSR, that they feel any means justify the ends... even editing her interviews disingenuously, digging through her closet, or and attacking her children in the national media. If she's so silly and irrelevant, why the obsession?

Gov. Sarah Palin has been highly successful in life while completely ignoring the left-wing feminist model... this helps to explain the extra dose of venom in the attacks. She turns their fantasy world on it's head, and with a smile.

Dems are plenty afraid of Palin coming-back at them in 2012 with a dynamic and complementary VP like Bobby Jindal... or visa versa. And they have plenty of reason to fear her-

Palin is the most popular governor in the country; her 60+% approval rating exceeds that of the MSM-pumped Obama... are all those people up there idiots?

Alaska was a pretty corrupt system until she stepped in. Her reforms took on entrenched politicians (inc. Republicans), a mafioso-style union boss, and Big Oil.

Wouldn't it have been nice if Obama had been principled and brave enough to confront the corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine?

Shady political operators like Tony Rezko?

Racist preachers?

Instead of doing business with every last one of them?

Go get em, Sarah- and don't mind the press, nobody will be listening to them anymore after the pending Obamamania implosion.

You were are not alone, I know a jab when I hear one too and Romney jabbed. Romney go home!

Reaganite Republican Resistance, thank you for replying. I appreciate your comments and agree with most of what you said. I disagree about Romney. I'm not saying he's a bad guy or whatever (though I can't take to him), but I am saying that it's not the fault of the Left when he chooses to dismiss Palin by suggesting she isn't influential, just "cute." Sure, they tried to bait him, but he needs to be smart enough not to bite. When Sarah was asked to respond to his comments, she simply said she hopes all Republican leaders can work together for the good of America. See, they threw the bait out there for her, but she didn't bite. That's Sarah: very graceful even when mistreated.
