Rush Limbaugh's ridiculous hypocrisy

There was another forum up today about Rush Limbaugh saying he would vote for Obama over Ron Paul. After checking his facebook page to see if Ron Paul supporters left any comments, I followed a link to one of his transcripts about the debate (BTW, did he actually state that he would vote for Obama? He criticizes Paul and Huntsman multiple times, but I couldn't find anywhere where he said he would actually vote for Obama).

Anyway, the headline on the facebook page and a key part of the transcript I'll link at the bottom of the page is about how the media and the pollsters are trying to make this a two-man race and how we shouldn't let them determine the race.

"That leads to another thing. We're being told that we have a two-man race. Who is telling us we have a two-man race? Why do we have to settle for the fact this is a two-man race? If you look at it as a two-man race then of course that's all you're going to see. But who is it that sets these narratives and who is it that sets these templates? The pollsters create these mind-sets."

Yet just a minute or two earlier, he had this to say:
"Now, my point is that we know that anybody on that stage last night, well, I'm gonna throw Huntsman and Paul out 'cause they're not electable anyway, not on our side, so throw 'em out. Any of the remaining people on that stage last night would be a profound improvement and so much better a chief executive than what we have now."

Elsewhere, he stated,
“The first conclusion I came to, Huntsman and Ron Paul need to quit the Republican Party, join the Democratic Party and run against Obama…and then everything get’s cleaned up."

So he's basically saying, "you can't vote for either of these men. They are dangerous. They're Democrats. They're no better than Obama ... You can't let the media tell you it's a two person race. Don't listen to them." Absolutely pathetic.

Also, he ridiculously oversimplifies the problems we face:
"I want to applaud Bachmann for focusing on Obamacare. For crying out loud, that is the issue, that and the economy. And the people on that stage last night that kept it focused on health care, Obamacare, and the economy, deserve plaudits, and that's Bachmann and Newt." He then says Social Security is just a distraction.

Sorry Rush, but the federal government was way too big before Barack Obama was in office. We can't address the economy without addressing things like Social Security, the Federal Reserve, and other aspects of the massive federal apparatus that are supposed to be off limits.

My dad's been a longtime listener of his, and I've slowly been bringing him to Dr. Paul's point of view, and I hope he sees through Limbaugh's act.

Here's the transcript:

this isn't surprising, right?

We all know what Limbaugh is about and that he's in the pockets of the military industrial complex and advocates the war propaganda. He has no credibility. His tactics are so obvious and it's all about half-truths. Lures you in with a truth, then commences with distortions.

I don't understand

why he (Rush) doesn't get more flak from his listeners about disrespecting one of the most honest statesmen of our time. Agree or disagree with RP policies...

"but treat him with the respect he deserves."

To not do this, is to silently endorse the corruption and dirty politics that all these neo-con radio propagandists rail supposedly against. In reality however, (as they're SOOOO fond to say) they are the furthest from the American Ideal as can be. Levin especially.

The general public who pay attention to politics revere these radio hosts, and the radio host rely on the public to stay ignorant, and believe what they are told.

I used to say that the television is the most powerful mind control device ever created. It can turn lies into the truth in the minds of men, create an artificial reality, a false history, that people actually believe in their mind.

I'm starting to wonder if radio should be considered number one.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Because his show is EXTREMELY controlled.

.." I dont understand why he (Rush) doesn't get more flak from his listeners about disrespecting one of the most honest statesmen of our time."

When you call Rush's show you FIRST have to get past the "call screener". This guy's job is to prequalify the callers to make sure they are only going to discuss what Rush wants to talk about that day.... and eliminate anything he DOESNT want to talk about (like Ron Paul).

If you manage to sneak your way past the call screener and plan to ambush Rush into talking about RP..... forget it, because he also has like a 40 second delay on his calls. THIS way he manages to hit the off button if someone starts going off on a topic that is different than the pre screened topic.

I would forget about trying to get on Rush. He is unchangeable. But his audience is old and dying. Better to spend your energy spreading the word in your area... one person at a time.
