The liberal media and illiterate socialist wanna-be freeloaders are the problem with this country. Hard working people have become the uninformed voter because of the liberal media. Acorn types... bought the last two presidential elections. If you didn't vote for the American businessman in November you too are the problem.
The Republican Party is nothing more than the "me too" party that goes along to get along. They want to keep what they have in terms of power and influence while being invited to all the swanky parties in DC. They want nothing to do with conservatives and rue the day the Tea Party Conservatives showed up in their "tent". We the People have ourselves for support against everyone in DC and no one else. The few true conservatives left are being retired or shunted off onto a siding while the Demunist train moves down the track, towing the Republican Party caboose. And all on the train sing "Kumbaya" as they continue to loot the treasury and laugh at the silly conservatives huddled under the bridge.
They must be so proud of the USSA.
Actually the GOP is DOA. There is no compelling reason for conservative, Tea Party members to support them anymore. As someone said, they can become the center right of the Marxist party. Thanks for nothing RINO's.
My wise mother used to say "stand for something or fall for anything." She could have been describing today's RINO's.
This is so sadly true I wouldn't even be surprised if they did call a press conference to do just what Rush suggested. I would not be surprised. I'm not kidding.
Rush Limbaugh is a phony. This is how he does is Dirty work for the Establishment repubs whils sounding like he's against them.
Since the day after the election's Rush has been pounding it home (Paraphrasing ),"That our Country has changed,there are more takers and maker and we have to face facts about it". This "Meme" did two things. It steered people away from the massive voter fraud that took place and it legitemized a reason for the repubs to have to move to the left and cave to Obama,because as they say,"Election's have consequences". It also helps his buddy Jebbie as the ultimate "Reach across the aisle" candidate.
Now that Rush has sold that line of Bulshe since the day after the election and helped cement the false ( Believe me,we are still in the clear majority ) "Meme" that the Country is 50/50 takers and doers and that's why Obama won,he's now playing CYA and tacking right and going after the repubs for turning left,after helping to give them an excuse for doing so. We are onto your act Limbaugh!
The irony...back in the 90s I'd get annoyed with Rush for attacking Bush 41 and the establishment republicans, and now I'm annoyed with him for supporting establishment republicans.
I've listened to Rush for 24 years. Though there have been times I have been annoyed with him or disagreed with him, there has never been a time that I mistrusted him. Rush Limbaugh is not a fan of Jeb Bush - that just is not so. Everything you have written is so off the mark that I can't really address it. You either don't listen to Rush, or you listen to him with a deaf ear.
Respectfully disagree. I've also listened to Rush since he came into National prominence in 1988. That would have been the year G.H.W.Bush ran for President,what a coincidence...Not!Rush is an establishment lackey who pretends not to be.If he wasn't,he would have given a full throated endorsement this primary season to a candidate of his choosing,who he considered the most Conservative. We are in a literal death struggle for our survival and the talk show host who could have made the biggest difference if he got behind someone when our Country most needed it,didn't. Why is that? Because it helps the establishment.i don't care what he has done in the past,this year was beyond crucial.
They are being exposed for what they really are big government statists who really only want control. They run this presidential cycle for almost 2 years and now because of there defeat they are essentially telling us they were never really for the things they ran on in the first place. REALLY, you don't change your core principles because you lose, do you? No of course not. If you really believe in what your saying and doing you fight to the dying end. Just remember who your are dealing with big government Republican statists who between 2000 and 2006 skyrocketed the debt when they had control. I dont pretend to have the answers but I can tell you John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the rest of the leadership in the GOP are in no way part of the solution. God Bless You All
I think that when Rush finally washes his hands of the GOP that they may wake up to the fact that they are no longer what made it the party of Lincoln/Reagan. I wish Rush would call the Republicans out and state that they are now a third party and it is time to move on to finding a true second party that will be in opposition to the Dem's.
Win lose or draw, I am no longer a Republican. I have made it official, I am an independent voter. I will never vote for someone again just to show my opposition to the one that they are running against. I will only vote for the candidate that I support, not pick the best opposition to the candidate that I do not support.
Oh, me too. For a short while there, Mark Levin was talking like he might consider leaving the GOP, but then last night, he stated he would not. I was kind of disappointed. If people like Levin and Rush just announced it's conservative third party time.... think of the millions of people who just might consider it. Imagine the thud that would hit Washington if the conservatives just walked away from the GOP in droves - not thousands, but millions. I used to staunchly argue against forming a third party. Not anymore. Not after this last election and what I'm seeing from GOP leadership now. I'm done with that bunch. I despise them almost as much as I do the democrats, and unless they drastically turn things around in short order, I won't be back to vote for their candidates. It will be true conservative or nothing for me. I can't bear the lies and waste of my vote and time any longer.
Political parties exist to WIN. So, it doesn't surprise me that we are being told to compromise our principles, etc. in order to win the next one. It is proof in itself that the Republican leadership and those that run the party are not (how did Palin put it?).."INSTINCTIVELY Conservative". We need to continue to push to remove the faux conservatives out of leadership and push in another round of fresh blood in 2014 until they get the point.
Rush is correct as usual. I worked with him and he's one of the greats in Talk Radio espousing an conservative ideology. In addition, he's far more astute than most on either side of the political divide acknowledge.
IMO, Romney lost the election in the last month when he was reluctant to hold strong on conservative principals and began to move to the middle. It can be seen in the results from the 2012 race compared to 2008. Obama lost about 6 million votes in 2012 while Romney had a few less votes than McCain:
Obama received a total of 63,714,092 (50.7%) popular votes.
Romney received a total of 59,782,295 (47.6%) popular votes.
Obama received a total of 69,456,897 (52.9%) popular votes.
McCain received a total of 59,934,814 (45.7%) popular votes.
When the GOP abandons conservative values they LOOSE and McCain/Romney prove it.
How fortunate you are to have worked with Rush. I'd love to just meet him and thank him in person for the intelligent thought he has brought to my life. I started listening to him when he was in Sacramento, and I'm still listening. He took my 20-something fertile mind and helped nurture it into the mature conservative gray matter I now have in my skull. I can't imagine America without his voice, and that's an understatement.
Maybe just maybe a little self-loathing within the Republican Party is exactly what is needed right now. Starting with the touchy feely Bush Republicans with their Compassionate Conservatisms (like what Greg Gutfield calls it synonymous with Idiot Liberalism) which is nothing more than Progressivism within the Republican Party. It this Progressive crap within the Republican Party that is not allowing a true Conservative identity to surface within the party. This Progressive loathing of true Conservatism within the Republican Party is what has the tainted RINO’s within the Party fighting tooth and nail to keep the Tea Party from taking part in the formation of a new and revitalized (Bold and Vibrant) Republican Party. Until the tainted GOP establishment embraces true Conservative values and stops with the hand wringing over one special interest group or another you can count the Republican Party completely out of the race. They are reacting to the Liberals and not setting their own path so a spot light on what deserves loathing maybe exactly what is needed.
Poll: Republicans Getting Massacred In Debate Over Tax Increases
You see? I told you. These idiots will never figure it out.
Heard Rush say this and what the GOP doesn't understand is their cowardice is losing them the conservative base. They think they can do without us but as they have witnessed they are sadly mistaken.
I believe that if you receive aqny check from the federal government with the exception of an actual tax refund, after having PAID taxes, you should not be allowed to vote.
That 47% Romney was talking about will only vote for people who keep the checks coming on a monthly basis. Same with Medicare and Social Security recipients. They may have paid into the system over the years, but they still want their checks and will vote for whoever gives them the biggest check with the biggest benefits. I don't really know if the Republicans want to get into that game with the Democrats, because the Democrats were always the ones who wrote the book on giving away "free" stuff to people. They never explain how they're going to pay for it, but they always keep giving it away. Once the people getting the checks outnumber the people supplying the money for the checks, I don't really know what you're going to do. Probably just become George W. Bush, or Democrat light. Do the "Compassionate Conservative" thing and just not spend as much as the Democrats. We'll still go broke, only a little slower.
The GOP doesn't have a message problem, but a lack of cojones! Instead of going to the shrink and/or attacking Romney they should just either re-count the votes or impeach Obama or finally check his eligibility. I mean for how long is this guy going to fool and disrespect us? For how long is this guy going to destroy the country and attack Christianity. There is not one day that passes by without a terrible new regulation or some scandal from the regime. I understand that the Chicago Regime is making lots of death threats, but he cannot kill all of us! And if, we would die for our Country, so what!
Furthermore it is not only about Obama, but about his corrupt entourage. Valerie Jarret has to be investigated, Biden needs a psychological and drug test and Hillary, Panetta and Holder need to testify before a congressional hearing and then go directly to jail! And when it comes to Obama, there is enough room for him in Guantanamo!
You see guys, I cannot take it no more!!!!!
Rush is correct. They are acting like wilted pansies.
Glad Rush is back.
He is a daily staple of life.
I had a little giggle here, about the 'wilted pansies'.
Before everybody was 'gay', the word 'pansy' was used here in England, amongst other expressions. Mind, that was some time ago ...
I am assuming I know the answer, but wanted to ask. Based on your screen name, you have a border collie? Me too. Two of them, actually - Sassy and Soxy. They are hell on wheels and keep me going. I found them together abandoned when they were about nine weeks old in a box outside of a supermarket. So, they came home with me, and here we are three years later. They are the loves of my life.
Good morning from across the Big Pond, Constance -
Yes, there's a resident housewolf, a.k.a Border Collie X, sharing the house right now, There have been other in the past, going back 17 years by now.
I love all dogs, no matter the breed (or not, such as the 57 variety mutts) or size: a wagging tail at one end, a wet nose at the other and one look from melting eyes and I'm gone.
But Border Collies, once one's shared one's life with them, will always be the ones coming home from the dog rescue centres ...
I cannot understand people wh abandon puppies, and am certain there wil be a special place in Hell reserved for them.
So well done you, taking the two little ones home with you - and yes, BCs are very demanding in regard to training: they thrive on it, and very demanding in regard to exercise: skimp on that at your peril, they say over here. But there's simply nothing like spending hours outdoors, accompanied by those intelligent dogs! Mind - once they get older, they become pig-headed, not because they're going bad, but because they know exactly how far they can go before their human gets cross! And they do try and push the envelope, do try and take advantage whenever the opportunity arises! On the other hand, their body language and mimic is so expressive, one can read them like a book, while they understand instantly what one wants or what one's mood is.
The current housewolf here has a bit of greyhound in her, so I'm lucky: for a BCX she is a bit of a couch potato, and loves sharing the sofa with me ...
I think you've been wonderful taking those two pups home, and they are and will repay that good deed with years of love, laughter, enjoyment, fitness (yours, that is!) and company.
Cuddles to Sassy and Soxy, and wags from the housewolf - taking them home must count as one of the best things you've done!
Actually, it was used here too...some time ago.
When I was in high school in the fifties it was just plain ole queer.
I never heard the words gay or lesbian until I was grown.
And back then it was done in whispered conversation. None of us as kids understood the situation.
There was a middle aged man in the choir at a local church and one high school girl that we all "whispered" about...my, how times have changed.
That particular girl recently confessed to her sister (all in their seventies now) that she has always been a lesbian. I learned this from a friend that was in the sister's HS class and she told them at a class reunion
I know. I am naive and lived a very sheltered life.
Nevertheless, I like men to be real men and women to be ladies.
Our parents did shelter us in so many ways, while giving us freedom and responsibility at the same time - like, being out with friends in whatever was deemed to be 'wilderness', provided we were home on time (or else!!!)
I never knew what a 'gay' person was, and lesbians were absolutely unheard of, or rather, not talked about. Two ladies living together were good friends, that was all.
I'll never forget some chance meeting, in a coffee shop at Paddington Station, where I was waiting for my train. That was in the early 1970s. A gentleman came and asked if he could sit at my table, I agreed, and then he talked, and talked. He was very sad, I didn't know what to say, just listened. At the end, he said he was a homosexual and had never been able to speak to anybody about this in his life, and he was grateful that I just listened. It was so very sad.
I was young, had no idea, didn't know what to say, but the sadness of this poor man has stayed in my memory ever since. That was the very first gay man I met in my life.
How different it is now - but then, how different is the whole, over-sexed behaviour of the young people nowadays.
I'll go for a Palin third party. America is dead. Communist light vs. communist heavy isn't a good program.
This is what is wrong with the world. NO ONE is willing to stand up for what they believe. The "Christians" are afraid to stand up to rest of the world. (52% Catholics voted for Obama) The Republicans are afraid to stand up to the left. (Oh, lets cut our immigration bill so we can forget about the laws that we have in place just like the Democrats.) Americans are afraid to stand up to communism and the rest of the world. (Let's get universal health care like the other countries.)
Folks.... The fact of the matter is that we need to stand up and stand strong. We need to stop giving in to the dark and show the light. Negotiating with the devil is wrong no matter what you get from it!! Accepting a "little wrong" negates the "little right" and no one wins.
I disagree. Many don't know how to stand up and those Catholics and others that voted what is against their supposed values? They didn't vote against themselves at all. Do you think politics is the only segment of society that has an 'in name only' segment?
Every segment of society at every level has an 'in name only' segment.
That is my entire point!!! Just like you said, "Every segment of society at every level has an "in name only" segment." Everyone is willing to join in at the party until it's time to pay for the drinks. We can all be Christians until we start to listen to the liberal talking points that divide our belief. (Divide and conqure. Ever hear that?) We can all be Republican until we start to give into stuff so we can have our stuff.
The point here is that there is only one TRUTH. Everything else is FALSE. This is why we're in the mess we are because we settle for "it's mostly true". Well, that means is also partly false and everyone goes on to accept it. (Did you ever read the part in the bible that says "because you are neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of my mouth"?)
The constitution is the constitution. The Bible is the Bible. You either accept it (and I mean all of it) or you don't. NO MORE OF THIS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!!! We have to get to the point of where we don't give a crap if we hurt someone's feelings. If you really care for some one, you will look them in the eye and tell them the truth. I would rather have them mad at me because I told them the truth that to claim to be my friend because I continually lie to them.
We need to stop trying to turn this country into what we "think" it should be instead of what it was designed to be.
Now that you have clarified yourself I agree.
However try and get any singular group of people to agree on what is 'truth' whether it is applied to the Bible or the Constitution. All will claim they know the truth in which case the truth becomes once again 'relative'.
Heck you can't get a group of people supposedly on the same side of the aisle to agree on certain topics and most especially the Bible or the Constitution.
Given that Rush has his ears to the ground and knows a lot more about this than I do, I've got to say this saddens me. It saddens me because the Republicans, for whatever reasons, don't seem to be able to look at what happened very recently to the Tory Party when they found themselves in that same predicament, after the landslide victory for Labour and Tony Blair in 1997.
They went through this self-same soul-searching, of this weepy 'we were so wrong, we'll become more like Labour' stuff.
It took them thirteen years to get elected, after 'rebranding' themselves, after 'getting rid of the toxic conservatism', after embracing the lefties' green dreams.
Even then, and in spite of standing against the most disastrous PM ever, and after 13 years of failed Labour policies, after a huge deficit and an economy driven to the wall - they didn't manage to win outright. Worse - one of their top team said the Tory Party was the 'nasty party', but no longer.
The MSM and Labour still use this self-inflicted epithet to bash the Tories.
That's where such spineless wailing, such abandonment of conservative principles will get the Republicans as well. And it will be worse for them because true conservatives have had it with their squishiness, same as over here, only you are willing and able to do something about it, thanks to your tradition of grassroot movements.
Sometimes I want to go and knock the heads of these "Conservative" grandees together, so that they get a bit of common sense back.
There's more: the Tory party under Cameron has done exactly what republicans under Boehner are doing, bending leftward to cater to the socialist, 'multicultural' base, to the point where Britain has ceded much of its sovereignty to the EU. If you want to see how a principled third party can emerge as a force to be reckoned with through grassroots support, watch UKIP. The Tea Party caucus should be taking notes.
One wonders why we can't learn from all the European failures. You guys are years ahead of us down this path and we refuse to look at what's happening. I suspect that if I had a video that showed the future of tomorrow morning and it showed a giant rock falling on our doorstep, many would look at it and still walk out their front door in the morning (wondering why nobody told them to look out for falling rocks).
It's just amazing how stupid we really are. Lemmings doesn't even come close to describing our idiocy.
Ah - but the difference is that Jesus is the Shepherd, and not a politician, President or Prime Minster.
In OT language, the Shepherd stands for the King, and it is his duty to look after his people, 'the sheep'. That's why He goes after the one lost sheep, that's why He defends His flock, to the death.
And that's why we're sheep only when we confess that we belong to Jesus.
Without Jesus we're just tumbleweed.
Any animal does behave better and with more sense than a lot of people I could name ...
Heh, well you're talking to one baaad-a$$ sheep right now. And I'm not going to take it anymore. Let's roll.
