Limbaugh becomes the center of the conservative universe

As far as I can tell, Rush Limbaugh is more than just a right-wing entertainer; he's like a kid who can't get enough attention. If so, the talk-radio clown must be loving life right about now.

It may be the best sideshow in presidential politics: the nation's top radio talker trying to take down the Republican front-runner in today's Super Tuesday showdown.

Rush Limbaugh has been relentless in his criticism of John McCain, prompting suggestions that he may have to soften his stance if the Arizona senator wins the nomination and faces off against Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. But if that happens, Limbaugh said in an interview over the weekend, he would rather see the Democrats win the White House.

"If I believe the country will suffer with either Hillary, Obama or McCain, I would just as soon the Democrats take the hit . . . rather than a Republican causing the debacle," he said. "And I would prefer not to have conservative Republicans in the Congress paralyzed by having to support, out of party loyalty, a Republican president who is not conservative."

Yesterday, apparently, Limbaugh's pre-Super Tuesday tirade was aimed almost exclusively at tearing McCain down, arguing, among other things, that he has "lied about his reason for opposing the Bush tax cuts." Limbaugh added: "I think McCain has an animus toward the Republican Party. I think ever since South Carolina 2000 he's had it in for the Republican Party, and one of his objectives is to destroy it and change it."

Limbaugh went on to say that McCain "stabbed his own president in the back on legislation, a number of times. He doesn't support his party or his president when the chips are down. He called people who want to protect the border racists, nativists, protectionists, and worse. And what kind of character is it that tries to slide all that through under cover of darkness, in a back room."

It's reached the point that the campaign finds it necessary to respond. Yesterday, Bob Dole implored Limbaugh to go easy — or at least easier — on the senator.

I don't like McCain, but I HATE the fake conservatives that give me a bad name. I actually changed my political leanings on facebook from conservative to moderate, because I didn't want people to think that I'm a bible-thumper.

Rush wasn't even registered to vote during the 1980 and 1984 elections. That's how much he cared about delivering a "true conservative" to office

Yet surprisingly, he carried a huge amount of political weight during key elections in the 90's. He's proof that many who lean to the Right (not all) are like sheep....all it takes is some loudmouth to grab their short attention span.

I don't see what is not conservative about McCain.

The problem is neocon versus true conservative.

Honestly, the only true conservative in the running is Ron Paul. McCain and Romney are both the worst kind of neocons.

The same can be said of the other side of the spectrum. I see your fat #######, and raise:

Is it necessary to allow these media figures to have so much clout in any election? Again, this is such a US phenomena that I am trying to get used to it and finding it hard to understand. Or indeed, maybe it's all hot air and doesn't really have much effect on the actual votes? I don't know, just seems kind of weird to me.


Refusing to use the spellchick!

I have put you on ignore. No really, I have, but you are still ruining my enjoyment of this site. .

To a degree, yes, but...the concept of liberal (in general) is to be open to change. There are good elements to taking a conservative approach to certain situations in life as there are with a liberal approach. A good leader is one who doesn't adhere to one approach religiously but looks at each situation and decides what approach will work best.

Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

Tell me about it. I mean there is a big problem with voter apathy in the UK, as there is in a lot of countries, but at least people talk about the candidates directly, rather than wasting time talking about people who talk about the candidates.

Some of those media commentators are so out there - I can't see why anyone would want to associate themselves with them even in an indirect way.

Tolstoy syndrome anyone?

Cult of personality combined with a growing distrust in public education or learning in general....and then pepper it with religious fundamentalism and you've a got a very large population unable to think for themselves.
