CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Limbaugh urges listeners to vote for Clinton « - Blogs from CNN.com
As Hillary Clinton battles to keep her presidential bid alive, she may be getting help from an unlikely source: conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh has been actively urging his Texas listeners to cross and vote for Clinton in that state's open primary Tuesday, arguing it helps the Republicans if the Democratic race remains unsettled for weeks to come. "I want Hillary to stay in this .. this is too good a soap opera," Limbaugh told fellow conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday. He reiterated the comments on his Monday show and replayed the exchange with Ingram. CNN Politics.com 4 Mar 2008.
Sorry, I had to post this on my blog. Today Rush Limbaugh was on the front page of Diggs twice, about the same topic. Can you believe this all started three weeks ago? As Rush says, about everyday on his radio show, "It's working and I am loving it". This is a great idea that Rush has come up with and his listeners are responding.
What I want to share with you is, why I think it is working. For a long time the Democrats have been getting away with attacks on the Republicans and the Republicans have not been fighting back. When the Democrats lost both the House and the Senate they started fighting dirty. Then when the Democrats lost both the 2000 and 2004 elections, everyday they bashed President George Bush and he didn't fight back. The Republican voters have had enough. They just needed a little push and Rush gave it to them.
The Republican voter, with the push and guidance from Rush Limbaugh, are lining up not in hundreds, but thousands. These voters can't wait to give it back to the Democrats. These voters can't wait to get down in the dirt and stick it to ones who have been bashing the Republican, without anyone fighting back. If Rush would ask them to stop doing what they are doing, they will not listen. Now they have the taste of blood and can't wait to give it to the Democrats. Can you blame them?
