Heard a few minutes of Rush Limbaugh yesterday. Made me think Rand Paul isn't too bad.

While driving home from the airport, I turned on Rush Limbaugh. He went on a little rant about the Tea Party, and apparently he considers himself to be part of the Tea Party. Referring to them as "us" and "we". Anyhow, Rush says Tea Party people are the only ones who want to beat Democrats, and that is what it is all about. He said you can your pick, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, they all want to beat Democrats. The Tea Party wants to win.

So Rush's message is to focus on beating Democrats. Everybody get back into the right/left paradigm. Focus on Tea Party leaders like Cruz, Lee and Rubio to beat Democrats.

Oh, and who did Rush forget to mention? Rand Paul.

He also forgot to mention Justin Amash and Thomas Massie.

When a right wing hack like Limbaugh doesn't mention your name, it is a good sign that you must be doing something right.

During the primaries Rush did not mention Ron Paul

he could not even say his name, if he could avoid it. He even said to Snerdly to not put through the Ron Paul supporters. This had to be a directive right from TPTB in the party. The day after the election Rush was lamenting why the the millions of Republican votes did not turn out for Romney. Gee, I wonder why?

I am of the belief that if Ron Paul would have been treated fairly at the convention and given the respect he deserved, allowed to give a convention speech, things would have been different.

He Also ReWrites History

He also re writes history by not acknowledging Ron Paul's influence on the non establishment republican movement such as the Tea Party.

He and Mark Levin made the change in tone at the exact same time, it is like they go the memo the same day. Adopt Ron Paul's populist message but deny Ron Paul.

They have no character.

It is blatantly obvious the last few months that Rush is purposely not saying the name Rand Paul.

Common sign of fake Tea Partiers:
We have to beat those Democrats!
Real Tea Party:
We have to beat the Establishment GOP!
