Dems' targeting of Limbaugh

116 posts in this topic

For those that do not understand the political logic behind framing Rush as the leader of the Republican party:

Independent and moderate voters, the people that decide close elections, disdain Rush. They will not suddenly like the ideas he supports because hes being pulled into the mainstream media via the Democratic leadership. It is a brilliant strategy that will help secure Democratic control of congress and the white house. The more successful the Democrats are at framing Rush and his right wing ideas with Republican leadership the less likely the Republican party can regain moderates/independents any time soon.

RNC leadership is having to play a delicate dance between not even further turning off the moderate/independents and not turning off the right wing base by repudiating Rush's extremism. Not to mention the wedge and fights this creates between the right wing of the republican party and the more moderate part of the republican party. This strategy thus far has been more successful than one could have hoped for.

/\Rush isnt as powerful as you are acting/\

I dont think he is capable of getting people to vote either way and he certainly isnt determining who will control Congress

you are giving that guy way too much credit

I hope it backfires... they are getting close to doing something unconstitutional... When you infringe on someone's Constitutional rights, especially with freedom of the press, you might as well be doing it to everyone.

Limbaugh is a yellow journalistic fear-mongering buffoon, and his listeners make people suffering from Down syndrome look like college professors.

Oh and saying you listen to him because he is funny or because you buy into some of his shtick is like saying you only subscribe to Playboy for the articles. It insults the intelligence of everyone who can hear it.

I actually like some of the things Obama says. Does that make me an Obama dittohead? I think Rush is a pompous ass. But he has a talent for articulating a lot of things people feel in a way that they can rally behind. When I disagree with those things (examples: animal testing and abortion) I can't stand him. When I agree (pointing out liberal hypocrisy especially in the media) I want to hear what he has to say. I don't listen to his show, but I do follow the controversies that the media reports on.

I never heard anyone hate on McNair. Maybe I just wasn't listening.

If that's true then I wasn't talking about you. I'm talking about the people like the guy two offices down from me who claims that he only listens to Rush because he is funny and occasionally says something he agrees with. BUT every day his radio is tuned in and he doesn't like to take meetings during the that time.

As a registered 'Pub and an previously active member of the GOP I view Rush as one of the Rights worst enemies. He does more to feed the elitist rich white male hypocrite stereotype of Republicans than the Left could ever hope to do.
