The El Rushbo Buzzer

LOL - Finally a solution to all of the disunity in the GOP!

I liked what Julie blogged a few days ago about the Newsweek piece by conservative David Frum contrasting Limbaugh and Obama.. here is a snippet of his piece:

"This president invokes the language of "responsibility," and in his own life seems to epitomize that ideal: He is physically honed and disciplined, his worst vice an occasional cigarette. He is at the same time an apparently devoted husband and father."
A man who is aggressive and bombastic, cutting and sarcastic, who dismisses the concerned citizens in network news focus groups as "losers." With his private plane and his cigars, his history of drug dependency and his personal bulk, not to mention his tangled marital history, Rush is a walking stereotype of self-indulgence.
Here's hoping that the GOP leadership can again find their way and unite the party.. the caustic vitriol is helping no one but Rush and the Democrats.


  1. Speaking as a conservative, there are plenty of other commentators who I would rather listen to (Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham) who each bring their own style and way of questioning things, but in my opinion aren't as bombastic. I gave up on Rush (and Ann Coulter!) several years ago and haven't looked back.

    There are far too many problems in this country -- and in the GOP -- for things to deteriorate into a shoving match between Rush and Michael Steele and a shouting match between Rush and the Administration. Having read all of the relevant remarks, I can easily see the point Rush was trying to make about the country -- he just could have done a much better job in the way he tried to make it.

    Ringling Brothers is in D.C. often enough; we don't need another circus in this town.

  2. Once again the double standards: "occasional" cigarette use? Rush's drug dependency? If Rush were a democrat, papers would opine about his "disease" and hold a benefit to help him.
    I was a life insurance underwriter. "Occasional" smoking is smoking.
    Obama used drugs and no one cares. He smokes and no one cares. Whatever he does, no one cares.
    I don't listen to Rush much, but the media is certainly painting the Republicans in an even more negative way lately.
    Let's focus on what Mr. Obama is doing these days.
    Or do we just want to distract from that?

  3. I don't see much good stuff coming from Beck, Hannity and Ingraham Matt.. I try at times to listen to them and find their rhetoric to be just a tad reminiscent of sour grapes.

    I agree with you Karen that this is a diversionary tactic by Democratic leadership that is aimed at getting the attention away from them and onto the disunity in the GOP.

    I don't think that unity is possible for the GOP these days. I think that this stuff will just have to eventually work itself out. Folks like David Frum (and others) will simply be discounted as disgruntled conservatives and their message will be lost as the dirge plays on.

  4. I think the disunity of the GOP is being blown bigger by the media in their distraction attempts.
    I can't stand to listen to Matthews, Gibson, Maddow, or Olbermann. They are just as annoying to my ears with their smugness. It's only fair that conservatives have irritating commentators! ;-)
