Rush Limbaugh wants Republicans to take back America by picking a good candidate for President in 2012. In the meantime, he wants Obama and the liberals to fail. In other words, he wants our nation to fall even farther down the rat hole.
I especially love the part of his speech where he claims that Conservatives want this: “We don’t want to tell anybody how to live. “1 Really? Aren’t these the same Conservatives who push for anti-gay amendments? They don’t want to “tell you how to live”, but they certainly want to butt in. And, aren’t these the same Conservatives who are against a woman’s right to choose? Again, they won’t “tell you how to live”, but they’re going to control your body. For the record, I should disclose that I am pro-life, but I would never join the pro-life movement, because 90% of the pro-lifers I met are just jerks.
Rush said, “We love people”2 Really? ALL people or just the ones that happen to agree with you? Because, I don’t see the love when you don’t believe in programs that help the poor. I don’t see the love when you want families to lose their homes, but you bailout the bankers. I don’t see the love when an 8% profit isn’t good enough to NOT layoff employees.
He’s also claimed that Democrats have wanted all Republican Presidents to fail. He said, ” the Democrat Party has actively not just sought the failure of Republican presidents and policies and now wars for the first time, the Democrat Party doesn’t stop at failure. Talk to Judge Robert Bork or Justice Clarence Thomas about how they tried to destroy lives, reputations and character, and I’m supposed to say I don’t want the President to fail?”3 Really? Judge Robert Bork? Isn’t he the guy who worked in Nixon White House and carried out Nixon’s firing of special prosecutor Archibald Cox? I mean, Nixon ordered two other guys to fire Cox (don’t know who Cox is? Read about the Saturday Night Massacre on Wikipedia). Those two guys, Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus, resigned rather than fire the special prosecutor, but not Robert Bork. So, who destroyed his life? He’s a judge now, even though he didn’t have the courage to stand up to the President of the United States when he knew it was wrong.
Rush is clearly running scared, as a matter of fact, the whole conservative movement is running scared. They had this country for 8 years and what happened? Well, nevermind, we all know what happened. The problem is that they don’t want to take the blame, but they’re not offering solutions.
