Rush Limbaugh Will Ride the GOP Train into the Sunset
Since I was the one who attacked Glenn Beck this week, imagine my surprise to read, that I wasn’t the only one who was getting on his case. I said that many of Glenn Beck’s followers had left him, and I had NO idea how right I was: Check out this article that talks about just how far the Glenn Beck empire has fallen..Beck has lost millions and had to lay off hundreds of his own people.
But, I wanted to talk about another conservative talk show Guru: The great Rush Limbaugh.
Since I’m the political junkie that I am, I have been listening to Rush Limbaugh every day…for the last two or three months…(long time listener) and here’s what everybody needs to remember about Rush:
When Donald Trump was leading in the polls, Rush Limbaugh spent a good two hours of his program talking mostly about Trump. How he thought outside the box, he was nothing that Washington had ever seen before…etc., etc, anybody listening to Rush would assume that Rush was supporting Trump.
And then…Cruz won in Iowa. What did Rush do? He jumped on the Cruz bandwagon. A lot of Trump fans (like me) wondered what had happened. Even today, I heard Rush say that Cruz cheating in Iowa was very typical of elections and we should all stop being babies and move on.
Never mind that when Ben CARSON was going up in the polls, Rush was all full of praise for the man, and it was Ben that was really hurt by Cruz’s deception so for Rush to dismiss it was rather insulting.
It was…and is…downright hypocritical. Especially for a man who is promoting the Founders with his children’s book. Most all of the founders would have cried “FRAUD!”
AND THEN…all of a sudden…Rush was on the Rubio train…trying to assure his listeners that Rubio was NOT an establishment conservative. No, no..no…he just made a mistake with immigration…just ignore that ‘mistake’…Nobody’s Perfect, he said.
So what IS Rush doing? He’s all over the map. Whoever is the hot potato at the moment, Rush is there to sing his praises. Here’s what this Nobody Thinks it’s all about:
ONE: Ratings. Rush has not stayed number one by picking winners and losers like Glen Beck. Beck picked Cruz, attacked Trump with every breathe, and lost millions of dollars.
AND TWO: Whoever gets the nomination, whether it’s Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Jeb, or Christie, you can be assured that Rush Limbaugh will be right in front of the pack saying that if you…the listeners of Rush Limbaugh do NOT go to vote for the Republican, then we will get Hillary, and the country will be destroyed and it will be YOU..YOU…YOU that destroyed it.
Yes YOU. Not Rush. Paul Ryan is already repeating that message.
Rush had used this shame tactic for decades to make millions like me, hold our noses and go an vote for Dole, McCain, Romney, and yes, Bush twice. Because we’ve been let down so much, there are now in the country more Independents than Republican OR Democrats. Rush HATES Independents.
This time, it’s not going to work. Last time, Rush swore Mitt Romney lost because the base stayed home. And they stayed home in Rush’s opinion because they are morons.
It matters not that the system is broken, what matters to Rush Limbaugh, is that it continues.
The Republican Party, must survive. Even if it’s just a mirror of the Democrats. To many in America, Rush Limbaugh IS the head of the Republican Party. His whole show is based on this mantle.
Rush Limbaugh KNOWS how to survive. The rest of us…well…we’re expendable. And Americans are getting fed up with people that we admire, telling us how to think, act, and vote, and if we don’t we are morons.
It’s our country too. None of these political radio hosts or pundits have to LIVE here. They all live in gated community bubbles. They don’t have to decide between their medications and food.
This is not the America that Rush Limbaugh grew up in. BOTH parties have taking America down the path of destruction.
Someday, even Rush Limbaugh, will have to recognize that reality. In the meantime, he is being very careful not to insult any of the candidates and he will excuse most all of their felonies, and dirty tricks, because to RUSH..What matters to Rush is the survival of the Republican Party, which to him, is America.
And that party left the people a LOOOOOOG time ago. The Bush’s GOP/DEM Globalization left the train station, and left America lying in the dust bowl of long forgotten tracks to prosperity.
Somebody ought to tell him. We all stand waiting….for the next train….that is nowhere in sight. All we hear are the crickets chirping.
All we see…is the setting sun…with a lone voice telling us…
AMERICA IS GREAT…it’s YOU that missed the train.
Right. And WHEN will the next one get here? We’re listening Rush….
