MUST LISTEN – Rush: Don’t be fooled by the media trying to dispirit you because nothing has changed since 2010

Rush’s opening segment today is just what the doctor ordered. He opened his radio show very animated over what he sees as the media working overtime to try and dispirit Americans and crown Obama the victor in this election, and he’s never seen them work so hard at it. But Rush says don’t be fooled because nothing has changed from 2010 and more people are fed up with Obama than the media would have you believe.

If anything has changed from ’10, it’s that we’re more upset with this administration. Also, Romney may not be a conservative, but he’d better start acting like one because we’re gonna hold his feet to the fire of liberty the second he sets foot in the White House!

I believe Rush was correct today when he said polls will only be correct about 1 week before Nov vote. Polls will tell the truth to save face. Just Remember Reagan. He was behind as well until a week before election.

I just love it to see it when any conservative gets All-Fired-Up and Shows the Passion for conservatism that Rush often displays.

Rush, Sununu and Newt are 3 of the best at understanding the MSM’s attack angle before they finish the second syllable and have the skill to turn it right back on em.

You know what gets me down? It’s not the polls because I don’t believe or give a rat about them. Remember the peanut farmer was ahead in the polls by 4 pts just weeks before the election and Reagan won by a landslide! (he only lost one state) No, what gets me down, is when I read comments here on Scoop that are so darn negative. We watch a Romney ad, and some immediately criticize (he should have said this or that, the music should have been different, the lighting was bad, etc). People criticize the campaign (he needs to do this or that, come out swinging, etc). Stop being so negative! Geez, we may not like EVERYTHING about Romney, but there is NOTHING we like about O. I’ll leave you with a few American Indian wise proverbs for you to contemplate: “Don’t judge any man until you have walked… Read more »

This is my only issue with Romney:

“The GOP candidate’s Monday rally was only one in a handful of public events for Romney over the past week, as he prepares for a trio of debates against Obama this October. Speaking with reporters, a Romney adviser dismissed the notion Romney had not been keeping a vigorous campaign schedule.”

If it doesn’t appear he is working hard, then how does he expect his supporters to work hard.

SICKENING!

Watching CBS’s “(de)Face The Nation” yesterday was like watching a one hour Democratic commercial, with LEFTY HACK Nora O’Donnell (previously shilling for Obama on Democrat network, MSNBC) as Moderator, and an “impartial” panel of a political reps….a NY Times rep., a Washington Post rep., a CBS rep., and Dee Dee Myers!
I guess “impartial” means no conservatives, Republicans or Independents – just various degradations of LIBERALS!

They were GUSHING about Obama’s bump after the (Godless) Hate Fest in NC!
Free Democratic TV Ads by the (3) networks, NBC, CBS & ABC for Obama’s re-election are why the polls are still close! – EXPOSE THEM over & over again for the Democratic Propagandists they’ve become.

I live in reality. This race is over. The Romney Party has ignored the Tea Party and Gov. Palin. Romney had a choice embrace the Tea Party and Gov Palin and win or ignore them and give Obama 4 more years.If he embraced the Tea Party and Had Gov.Palin speak at the convention it would have given them credibility and life. The Romney Party chose Obama.

I happen to think is Palin had been at the Republican Convention, Romney would be behind by double digits. You think you live “in reality”? Ha. I am no Palin hater, but for every one person who loves her there are two who do not. That’s reality. She would have run herself otherwise. Romney had plenty of Tea Party at the Convention.

It has always amazed me how quickly those of us on the right simply believe these liberal media polls, get disheartened and ready to throw in the towel, without ever really looking into these polls. For example: Yahoo News, which is a left-wing news source, ran a Reuters/Ipsos poll, which is another left-wing news source, this past weekend that said a majority of 1,457 likely voters surveyed online, would vote for Obama. (Note the poll was conducted, ONLINE.) And my response to them was: How can you survey “likely voters” online and claim they are a random national sample? First of all, the participants would all have to have Internet access. Secondly, those with Internet access would have had to self-select themselves by making their e-mail addresses available to the pollsters. And thirdly, even the people who were e-mailed by the pollster, would have had to self-select themselves further by… Read more »

Rush uses us conservatives as saps. He should have educated people about Romney before the nomination. Now we have this mess.

I used to listen to Limbaugh until I heard the following conversation:
Caller: I am a degreed engineer who lost my 15 year job in engineering. I pulled myself back up by my boot straps and started a window cleaning business. I don’t make a lot but you don’t see me crying that I cannot find a job.
You see, my husband also lost his engineering job because it was shipped to India and now he was doing painting and carpentry work. My analysis was so enlightening that I could never listen again. What I suddently realized was what a “service based economy” was all about. It was about turning the American worker into slaves for the 1% and I will have no part of it.

I found it pretty disgusting that there were women in the crowd crying while Obama spoke….and his speech wasn’t very good. I can’t grasp how people worship a human being and pretty much view him as a god (not G-d). Makes me want to puke. I love Palin, West and others, but I don’t worship them.

Yeah, all the polls are weighted heavily on the Democrat side. Supposedly because nearly 2/3 of the country identify themselves as Democrat so they reflect that balance in the polls. I don’t believe that high of a percentage is Democrat.

Rush is dead on right!!! I see absolutely nothing that is different today than it was in 2010. Not one thing. And 2010 was a landslide for the Republicans. If anything, things are worse now than they were in 2010, so why would MORE people vote for Obama? It just doesn’t make sense. Obamacare is still VERY unpopular, the only thing the stimulus stimulated was more debt, and we now have a $16 trillion debt with no change in unemployment for almost four years! And this is a record a guy wins on? I don’t think so. I still get this feeling Obama is going to lose in a landslide, just like Carter did in 1980. And there is one, BIG, difference between 2010 and 2012: Republicans are even MORE motivated than ever to throw Obama out of office. Do NOT ignore that. The base is ready to move, and… Read more »

It is not because we are better it is because we like to lose and then complain about it!! These same whiners will be the first that will come on here and Say I told you so but then SHUT UP AND LIVE WITH THE MISERY OF YOUR SMUGNESS….because that moron will live under all the Regulations and Nightmares that Obama will bring over the next 4 years.

I was sent this email and thought it was funny.

BO, MO, & O
Flying on Obama’s private plane.
Obama looked at Oprah, chuckled and said, ‘You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy.
Oprah shrugged her shoulders and replied, ‘I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy.
Michelle added, ‘That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy..
Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, “Such big-shots back there. I could throw all three of them out of the window and make 256 million people very happy.’

Why difference in Ras National vs Ras Swing State: ONE WORD: ADS!! I live in Florida in the Orlando area and just yesterday Americans for Prosperity came out with a TERRIFIC AD slamming Obamacare with a Canadian Woman who is only alive beause her husband bought her to America for a surgery that in Canada (UNDER BIG GOVERNMENT) she would have had to wait months for, and if she would have she would be dead. It is powerful and very effective…right at Obamacare. Now in the Swing States you are getting alot of ads and more are finally attacking Obama….much better than Mitt’s Ads but his are not too bad…Dick Morris loves Mitt’s new ads…. Hence in the swing states Obama is NOT DOING AS WELL because of the Ads….that is why Ras has swing state poll 46/45 Obama with the DNC CONVENTION…it helped him little at all and with… Read more »

We are all well aware of the antics that the media and this administration will do to ‘ensure’ another term for this failure. The photos from this weekend are exactly how far they will go to spin themselves as part of the ‘average’ American. It’s all BS. Just look at the topics the media will concentrate on. Ryan’s marathon time? Romney’s taxes. Romney’s dog. All are subjects that the ‘average’ American could give a hoot in hell about. But they cannot go near the economy. But this whole teacher strike will be interesting to watch. As I watch the MSM hardly anyone is wall to wall on the strike? Now why is that? Because the issue hasn’t reached its momentum yet. Rush is right about that. Obama will swoop in like he always has and appear to save the day. The numbers from the convention DO NOT look good for… Read more »

LOL! Rush is so animated. Love it!!

I agree with him. I suspect the same. The last indicator is when they moved from a 75,000 seat stadium to a 20,000 seat building. And now suddenly he’s up in the poll????
Uh huh!

I do hope that people who know about how deceptive and manipulative the media is would know better and wise up though and not falling for it again and again.

Rush is right! I also noticed the conservative media falling for it again and again, even the people at Breitbart.com who really should know better than that are falling for it.

In some ways, we need to take our cues from the Left. When all hope was lost for Obamacare after the Scott Brown election, what happened? They doubled down and fought even harder to “pass” their socialized medicine. The take home lesson for us: its never over until we say so.

Per Romney campaign memo: Don’t Get Too worked up by the polls.

Good for Rush to point out the full-throttle efforts of the Obama campaign to sway pollsters (and, I might add, so-called fact checkers). The turn in the polls is irrationale. far too much, and unsupportable by what has taken place. If everyone keeps a cool head and stays focused on voting him out, it’ll happen. Keep the faith because the alternative is something we cannot accept.

The liberal media and Team Obama must be in panic mode as their internal polls probably indicate that Obama is in gigantic trouble. The fact that they are pushing the panic button with the election two months away indicates they’re not just worried about November 6, but are very, very worried about early voting which I believe starts in October in some states.
