Well, considering Rush's candidate Thompson is going exactly nowhere (and possibly dropping out of the race entirely on Tuesday), I'm not surprised. He can't stand the Huckster, and he's not a big fan of McCain, either. He never forgave McCain for the 2000 election, and the whole campaign finance reform among other things sealed that deal.

He'd probably get behind a Giuliani candidacy, but that's something of a longshot at this point. He'd probably be okay with Romney, too. So yeah, I can see Rush not supporting the GOP candidate if it's not one of those two.

At this point I just have extreme dislike for both Clinton and Obama.

Read the comments on the site.

First several are denial. "Rush never said this! I listened to him today!". Pretty funny.

Rush is flirting with leaving the GOP and if Dobson is going to tell his fundy flock not to vote for Rudy or McCain, should either get the nomination.....?

The Republican party is losing even the most loyal, it seems.

You know it's kind of funny, the talibangelicals and the Liberal Bashing Industry are becoming a liability for the GOP, unable to hold the coalition together

Don't worry, Rush will receive his new directives from the RNC soon enough, no matter what.

none of the powers that be will allow Ron Paul a shot at the nomination. He's an old skool fiscal conservative and that's the sort of person who gets assasinated before he gets a reform package before Congress.

Neither do any of the other Republican candidates. And every last democrat wants to raise my taxes. And republican and democrat alike think the patriot act is just spiffy, the RIAA are wonderful people and that there's nothing wrong with those nice people on wall street who keep giving them all that free money....

At least Ron Paul is talking about the failure of the drug war. He's talking about cutting taxes AND spending. He's talking about our extremely serious economic problems and saying that MORE government isn't the answer because we have enough government already.

In a large field of bad choices, Ron Paul is looking more and more like the best of a rotten bunch. And besides - Fox news and CNN alike absolutely hate the guy. That's gotta be worth some serious cool points right there.

All i'm saying is that Ron Paul seems to be hated and despised by all the right people. That right there makes him worth consideration at this point. I suppose we'll see where we stand after a few more months...but keep the guy on the short list for a while and don't dismiss him so easily.

Oh, don't get me wrong; I dig how he is upsetting the Official Discourse. But I am attracted to Obama too, because I am a (probably delusional) believer in a Great Middle. I am SO SICK of divisive rhetoric.

Obama isn't in the middle. if anything, he's slightly to the left of Hillary. Not that I think it's a good thing, since Hillary seems to believe that Marx wasn't enough of a marxist and should have been kicked out of the communist pantheon for being a wimp.

Neither one of them is 'center'. But that's the way this election cycle is gonna go...a bunch of men and women in $4000 suits standing around telling us how they're all gonna save the country by spending our money in various ways. Ron Paul is the only guy who's saying we shouldn't spend any more, and that maybe we should rethink our assumptions about how government handles it's cash.

Democrats want to throw tax money around and pass laws on everything.

The GOP wants to throw tax money around and repeal laws on everything.

To expect that any of their actions will solve things is stupid.

All I know is they will do *anything* and say *anything* to make sure they're in power next year.

A pox on both their houses.

/Hillary I fear the most.

DarthBrooks: /Hillary I fear the most.

Obama is busy kicking her ass from one end of the country to the other right now.

I can think of no better way to torture Hillary than to see her pull out all the stops against Obama only to lose the nomination to him at the convention.

I'd wager we'll see expressions of such rage and hatred as to crack camera lenses and boil blood from 40 feet away....

So it will be politics as usual then? If Hillary looks like a liberal to you then Goldwater must look like a card carrying member of the Socialist Republic. There is nothing liberal about Hillary.

He's just bluffing to try and influence the race. Same for Dobson.

Yeah, because only a person would say repeatedly that he thinks candidate's religious beliefs have no place in the public discourse, or say about Huckabee's "I'm the most Jesusy!" tactics: "When fascism comes to this country it will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a cross." Yup, sounds like a real theocrat.

Im happy to amuse you now perhaps you can enlighten me by explaining what part of Hillary Clinton's campaign platform is liberal? Not "LIbrul" (whatever that means) but truly liberal?

Paul doesn't want a nationwide theocracy. He wants each state to be able to establish their own. See his "We the People" act.

Rush got very rich preaching the hatred of Bill Clinton. Why wouldn't he want another Clinton in the White House?

I'd vote for Fred or Rudy long before I vote for anyone who isn't currently doing the job they were elected to do...you know our venerable senators Clinton, Obama, Kucinich, et all

Then again, should I vote for people who can't even hold down a minimum wage job?

Son of God: TheCid: Paul doesn't want a nationwide theocracy. He wants each state to be able to establish their own. See his "We the People" act.

Can we just let this drop at this point? Debating Ron Paul with Churchill2004 just isn't worth it. He believes in Ron Paul, end of story.

Plus, attacking Ron Paul is liking beating up a retarded baby at this point, it's obvious his supporters predictions that he would come in 2nd or 3rd in some states are way off.


This. The Paul fans talk a big game, but never show up when he actually loses. There predictions were flat out wrong, they end up changing the goalposts, and they never admit they might be wrong. They remind me of millenarian preachers or something, the day after the supposed apocalypse.
 
2008-01-22 07:46:38 AM
Please. When the time comes, Rush's bosses in the RNC and the White House will order him to rally behind the Republican, and he will.

He's a utter and complete whore who doesn't have an independent position on anything. He just waits to be told what to say and pops pills.
 
2008-01-22 07:55:43 AM
Rush's GOP paymasters haven't told him who to support yet.

There's no cash in riding the fence. He has to pick a republican candidate or he's got nothing to talk about. Both sides can't be villains.

So do Republicans, but they do it on the hush-hush (or cut programs and let the next guy handle the mess)

Republicans spend just as much. They just slash "useless" things like NIH funding to make up for it.
 
2008-01-22 08:09:14 AM
I believe Rush pulled this schtick in 2000.

He does this for entertainment purposes, "None of the candidates are true conservatives...or Reagan Republicans."

After super tuesday Rush will know who to support.
 
2008-01-22 08:13:37 AM
"This is why I keep hearing that Hillary is loved by Wall Street? That wouldn't make much sense if she was a Communist, now would it?"

Because for all the talk, she is about as right wing as the majority of the Republican candidates. A conservative with liberal leanings in some area. Though that wouldn't be so fun to admit.

"and if Dobson is going to tell his fundy flock not to vote for Rudy or McCain, should either get the nomination.....?"

Isn't that kind of illegal when he claims tax free charity status?
 
2008-01-22 08:14:50 AM
Ron Paul has a lot of great ideas, and its sad that he's ignored, and laughed at by other people who claim to be conservative. That said, he's not presidential material imo, but the guy makes a lot of damn good points that the GOP and DNP don't want people seeing.

Unfortunately, anti-American sentiments have been so ingrained into the public that it may be too late.

That's nonsense. In terms of policy, Obama is the closest to the middle of the three Democratic candiates. His policies are all pretty center-left, particularly in education and health care. Edwards is probably the most liberal of them.

Weaver95: Neither do any of the other Republican candidates. And every last democrat wants to raise my taxes.

Apparently fiscal conservatism these days means running up a huge bill and the leaving someone else with the check. The Republicans will spend like drunken pirates but, since they don't have a plan to pay for it, they're the only ones who will get your vote? That's some real fashion forward thinking there, Weaver.

Good. Every American should be flat-taxed at 50% until the Iraq cluster-fark is over. You want war, be prepared to pay for it. Maybe people would a little less nonchalant about sending our troops out to die needlessly.

All three are classic liberals. Obama tries to I believe is personally left of Obama but will change her positions with the political winds to win elections. Edwards is running left of both of them because there is nowhere else for him to go.

I really don't get where this "Hillary is a leftist" idea came from. If you look at her platform and the policies she's supported in the past she's pretty much corporate center-right. Can you provide some examples of her policies that are even remotely left of center?

Given the global market's response yesterday to Bush's tax cuts proposal, and the way Wall Street is going to drop today, it appears that tax cuts aren't going to create new jobs, either.
