Damn this guy is picking up

Damn this guy is picking up like he was a freedom guy all along. What a POS.

Why does ANYONE care what a

Why does ANYONE care what a radio loudmouth has to say? No matter what he is saying, his function is to maintain and build an audience so the radio can sell advertising... THAT'S IT!

Not true

If it were, TV and radio programs would be increasing (or at least maintaining) audience share. Most political programs are losing audience share due to their obvious establishment propagandist leanings. Attacking Ron Paul certainly didn't help draw a larger audience. Some of the establishment media actually needed and received bailout dollars through TARP. Their real purpose is to protect the status quo at any cost. Once in a while, the talking heads throw us a bone to fool us into believing they're "one of us."

To clarify... As a radio

To clarify... As a radio personality, his function is to attract an audience so his station can sell ads. When he fails to do that long enough, he will be fired. Obviously, if he's changing his song he's trying to find another audience of suckers who will listen to his rambling.

Rush sells political piss.

Rush sells political piss. he thinks putting some ron paul flavor in it will make it a better selling piss right now. worst part is, it's artificial ron paul flavoring. end of story.

Deceptive

Rush omitted this portion of the Ron Paul's speech which is relevant to the context.

"Yet the good news is that compared to 1976 when I first came to Congress, the desire for more freedom and less government in 2012 is much greater and growing, especially in grassroots America. Tens of thousands of teenagers and college age students are, with great enthusiasm, welcoming the message of liberty."

Rush wants to ignore the growing freedom movement. He was attempting to reinforce his view that Romney lost the election because those who love liberty are out numbered by those who want free stuff. The remaining part of Ron Paul's statement would conflict with Rush's view he continues to push. He doesn't dare assert that maybe those who love liberty didn't vote for Romney.

CO-OP ALERT!!!

CO-OP ALERT!!!

Rush's post is about one

Rush's post is about one thing and one thing only, and the only thing he actually cares about - ratings.

Rush no more believes in the liberty movement than Michael Moore.

are doing this on purpose just to piss in our beer. But we're laughing our asses off instead, because we know what they are doing. Ruck Fush!

The Tea Party

fell for this after the 08 election and look where it got them. Limbaugh is a crackhead!

Oh yeah, now they're onboard.

Thanks Rush. Thanks Hannity. Where were you Fair and Balance duds when they stole Iowa from Ron Paul, which could have drastically changed the political landscape? Even when the Iowa GOP boss openly said they wouldn't accept Ron Paul? Not a peep. Where were you guys when they didn't even offer Ron Paul a speaking slot at the convention? Not a peep. I'm sorry, you guys are worse than the obvious socialist. They ridiculed Ron Paul every chance you got, when they mentioned him at all. They deserve Obama.

It is ashame

That Rush twice did not endorse Buchanan, and twice did not endorse Paul. His influence would be much more wholesome if he ever went anti-establishment, anti-neocon.

The only important thing here

is that Rush posted the video and lead 20 million people to it.
THEY are where our potential for growth lies. So even though Rush is not sincere in his supposed "liberty" philosophy..... he just sent 20 million people to perhaps Ron's greatest speech.

PLANTING SEEDS is what we are about. If Rush inadvertently watered the crop...... HORRAYY

Stop With All The Negativity

Like it or not, Limbaugh is the voice of the GOP. If he were to come our way (not saying he is), it would be huge. Now stop attacking people for merely living in reality and accepting it as it is, not as they want it.

Limbaugh still has an audience of millions and he's only going to get more popular now that Obama's been reelected. The strange thing for me here is that in terms of "talk" Ron Paul and Limbaugh are very similar. Especially if you go back to the mid to late 90's. Back then Limbaugh and the GOP were completely against NATION-BUILDING.

Limbaugh is the voice of the

Limbaugh is the voice of the neocons. Neocons know nothing about liberty. Limbaugh knows nothing about liberty. But Limbaugh does know how to make the neocons march lock step into wars no matter what the ulterior motive is. I doubt that I'll have anything but negativity when it comes to Limbaugh. He's part of the problem.

I don't understand why..

..you people are still giving this media whore your attention.

Just ignore him into irrelevancy.

Rush Limbaugh has NEVER said anything nice about RP

I distinctly remember when his hero Bush was in office in 07'...(Before Rush became a born-again Constitutionalist) He said something to the effect of: "Ron Paul can paint the Constitution on a blow-up doll and make love to it" Meaning he didn't give a damn about RP or the Constitution at the time. He even tried to take credit for RP's 1 Trillion dollar spending cuts when he finally mentioned that. IDK what Rush's M.O is here...but there is an agenda...there's ALWAYS an agenda with these guys...

I give this post 100 down votes to the guy who made it his goal never to say one good thing about Ron Paul until today. Limbaugh doesn't deserve to say the words, Ron Paul. He wouldn't know what liberty was if it bit him.

Kookville

Caption: right under the Ron Paul video: "RUSH: I know a lot of you think we're listening to kookville here, but, for me, this nails it."

Same Thing Happened in 2008

after the election conservative radio/tv hosts magically realized they agree with everything Ron Paul says then in 2012 they magically forgot that they agree with Ron Paul and called him crazy.

They are all conservative until the time arises when their can actually be change then they all change their tune and support the liberal "conservative" who offers nothing but the same.

Everyone acts in their

Everyone acts in their self-interest. Neo-cons are like Darth Vader to the GOP's Emperor Palpatine.

You are 1000% right

That is their great deception tactic. I watched it happen in real time. After RP was out of the race and Obama got in, they started echoing ALL of Ron Paul's idea's as if they were always their own. (minus the foreign policy) Then when he decided to run again- he became a "kook" again, but never once changed his positions on anything.

If THAT doesn't tell you these neocon talk radio hacks aren't bought and paid for by some establishment think-tank, I don't know what will.....

Is this the same guy who said Ron Paul has nothing to do with Tea Party?

Why should anyone care what this guy says? Downvoting.

This is the same hypocritic, lying RAT Limbaugh who said...

...last January that Obama is a better president than Ron Paul would be.

I heard him say it.

Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity, Medved, Beck, O'Reilly, Gibson and Ingraham did irreparable damage to Dr. Paul's campaign.

They are all lying pieces of Neo-Con CRAP.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

not to mention

Limbaugh called all people who support Paul druggies living in their parents basement. This blowhard single handedly destroyed the Paul Campaign in the days before the Iowa Caucus. Maybe we should ask him to retire and hand over his timeslot to a real conservative radio host like Josh Tolley.

Rush Limbaugh can't hold a

Rush Limbaugh can't hold a candle to Ron Paul. Ron Paul actually believes in and supports all the things that Rush has claimed to stand for. Rush needs to have Ron on so they can debate military spending and using the federal government to police social/personal choices. Of course Rush would never do this because Ron would expose that in the areas where the GOP loses - to women, the young and latinos - the GOP is not really advocating for limited government in all instances. If the GOP actually advocated for limited government in all instances they could win in big cities eventually.
