Do you ever get the feeling that Rush and Hannity don't really care who wins, just as long as their dollars keep rolling in from us tea party saps. Besides Mark Levin, what prominent talker has gone out on a limb and endorsed true conservative candidates? Everyday we have to here Hannity interview the John McCains of the world. If he truly believed in the conservative movement, wouldn't he be out there trumpeting Richard Mourdock and Don Stenberg like Levin is?
As for Rush, he is more interested in commercializing the tea party movement with his "Two if by tea" than promoting it.
Besides Mark Levin, they're all sellouts just like the Republican leadership...looking out for their own career over the well being of the country.
Eric Cantor with his support of Richard Lugar and Adam Kinzinger in their primaries is consolidating moderate, establishment support behind his ambition to be speaker some day. But Hannity is more interested in a softball interview with him than evicerating him for his actions.
There are very few leaders in our movement.
I haven’t heard it recently, but fromt time to time during the past several years he has said “I’ll let you know when it is time to go” and teased about going to New Zealand or some other unnamed place. I take him to be half joking. Half. But he has not talked that way recently.
I am sure he has contingency plans though, both as to his person and his fortune and his closest circle. He is a wily and pragmatic man, with the means to put his plans into action should he choose.
Rush and Levin and others are very brave. If 0bama is re-elected, there is a chance that their lives could be in danger.
He said he’d go to Costa Rica of all places. That was back in 2010 before the passage of ObamaCare.
Yes, he mentioned that too.
Why haven’t you created an “about” page? You’ve been on FR for a long time according to the date attached to your name. Why haven’t we seen any postings before? What have you been waiting for?
Rush still likes money but he is reaching an age where money becomes gradually less important. He is already super rich so what he is looking for now is recognition and adoration.
Hannity was never about the money. He has stronger core than any other celebrity IMO.
Levin is more about money than above two combined.
O’Reilley was always about money and rating and still is. His show is very entertaining as evidenced by top rated show for dozen years running.
Filthy tricksey capitalisticsists. Using filthy advertisementing to sell... THE PRECIOUS.
Yes, they always go for the establishment. Levin said support Romney. I don’t worship them..I use to adore them since they seem authentic. It’s insane to put liberal Romney at the head of the republican party. He began Romneycare. Their sheep will follow them-see these posts among us.
They all make money - so what? If you give them money and regret it - then stop!
They are realistic. They will eventually back whoever the nominee is, as we all should.
Ideals are fine but reality is a harsh mistress. Sometimes you must vote for the lesser of two evils. In better terms one must envoke the Buckley rule which states that you elect the most conservative, electable candidate. Or push them in that direction. *cough*
Tee hee...good one.
Funny how....people can see the same thing...but think the opposite.
Are you sure...you are in the right place?
“Do you actually think Rush started Two if by Tea for the Money? LOL That whole thing is a toy for him to have fun with.”
I thought it was a very deliberate stick in the eye to fair weather friend Snapple. I loved it!
Yep, longer than you!
I will delight in opposing both evils.
Yep, it's an example for the others.
There’s a lot of phonyism there. I recall many of our pundits beating their chests in the run-up to 2008, swearing that they would NEVER NEVER NEVER back that RINO John McCain, not in the primary, not in the general, not in a boat, not with a goat. I DO NOT LIKE McCAIN AND HAM; I DO NOT LIKE THEM, SAM I AM! But when he got the nomination, they dutifully bent the knee and kissed his ring. Same with Mittens. Coulter is a particularly sad example in both cases, but then she’s been perfectly frank that she comes out with rabid statements just to gain publicity. She’s venal, but at at least she admits to being venal.
