Rush reads letter from friend who is dumbfounded, saddened that Romney may be the nominee



The letter really speaks for itself, and many of us here I’m sure. It’s simply the frustration that the establishment seems to be winning again in 2012 while conservatism takes a back seat when it seemed to be doing all the work over the last few years:

The American voters can stop Romney and put the GOPe in their place……but they don’t………………….shame on the voter……shame on the GOPe! When Romney loses, there better not be one negative comment from the GOPe……….if Romney loses it’s all the GOPe fault for pushing a rino……………….

It seems a change that the voice of so many people get covered by the powerful media and the “significant” ones in D.C. I pray that the the voice of the people will be heard of the megabucks of negativity that Romney has hitting the air waves in WI and other soon to be voting states. Santorum is the man who can stand up to Obama.

The one thing that I think is killing this for conservatives are the Independents. They want a centrist…someone that would work for both party interests. We need to get behind a third party movement. We need three parties. The left, the center, and the right. Obama pretended to be centrist when he ran for office although there was a mountain of evidence he was a lyinig SOB. Independents will not vote for anyone that’s not a centrist, which means we are forever stuck with moderate conservatives at best if we win. I didn’t think a third party was a good idea and I thought it better to retake the Republican party, but I’m beginning to think that won’t matter. When it comes to the general the Independents will not accept a conservative candidate. We need to start our own party once and for all.

Actually, there are more conservatives than independents…….the problem is that conservatives don’t vote for moderates………so they stay home……….independents will vote…………so it’s not that there are more independents, it’s because conservatives stay home………If we had a true conservative, conservatives would vote and outnumber the independents….there are 42% conservatives and 20% independents………That’s what happened in 2008, 30,000,000 conservatives did not vote…….rino’s need not apply……that’s what will happen in 2012………Romney will not win, even if every independent votes………conservatives will not vote for Romney………….and it’s all the GOPe fault!

That makes sense for the general election because true conservatives are only left with a moderate to vote for. But what about now? I thought for sure the Tea Party would push forward a conservative candidate and they didn’t. The vote was massively split for a long time and that’s the only reason Romney led all that time, but now he’s pulling in more delegates than all the others combined. Where’s the damn Tea Party? I’m Tea Party and I don’t get it.

Rush keeps harping on the “Tea Party vs. the Establishment” narrative, but does it hold water? Either the Tea Party has been voting for Romney or the Establishment outnumbers the Tea Party. Either way, the system is working the way it is supposed to. The majority of those who show up to vote gets to determine who wins. Those who don’t like our system would seem to prefer that a small group of “elitists” who represent their way of thinking should be able to choose our nominee. That’s the way progressives think. Do you really want to become like them? Romney’s record is that of a social RINO and a fiscal conservative. Santorum’s record is that of a social conservative and a fiscal RINO. Social Conservatives think they are the only “true” Conservatives. Fiscal Conservatives think they are. Right now fiscal conservatism is winning over social conservatism. It’s also what… Read more »

At the risk of making enemies, I will say that Romney is nothing more than Obama lite. He has lied in the past, and he is lying now. He might slow the slide to Hell, but a slide to Hell the destination will remain. For all of his faults, Newt Gingrich is the only candidate who has a plan which will work, has balanced budgets, has remained on target Obama, and admitted past mistakes openly. I truly believe that America will regret “forever” if it votes “electability” rather than “what is needed.”

I am not sure at this point I will be able to be the ‘good soldier’ this time. At 50 years old, I cannot fathom the thought of not voting. I also cannot fathom the thought of actually pulling the lever for Mitt Romney. One thing is for certain, I have completely given up on the republican party, I may be forced to vote that way, but the days of donations, greenback, and campaigning for a candidate picked by the nasty establishment are long gone. Mr. Romney, should he manage to win, can probably only count on my one little vote..Nothing more.

These recent endorsements are meant to water hose the hope of conservatives and give in to the “inevitable”. They are carefully crafted and timed, and (at least IMO) are a sign of panic from the Romney camp about getting to the 1144.

About their timing: They are coming out now because the next few primaries are ones that Romney can do ok in because they are bluish to purple states. So, they are hoping with key endorsements and a few expected wins, they can wash away our last hopes and build a consensus– and even a momentum to decry the others for remaining in the race.

This is a tactic. Santorum must know this. He needs to stay in, and we need to catch our second wind and VOTE.

Precisely. It is manipulation. They want to dispirit us. Remember we are still the majority. Romney is only winning 40% of the primary voters, that means 60% are voting against him. Let’s take this thing to a brokered convention and let the 60% be heard.

Why should we give up? Because Paul Ryan said so? Because Marco Rubio said so? Because George H.W. Bush said so? I have my own mind and my own values and they are not only telling me no, but hell no! Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio would not have anywhere near the voices they have today without the Tea Party Conservative support that gave them prominence. They are suppose to listen to us, their constituency, not the other way around.

It is nice of Rush to read his friends letter but why hasn’t he and Sean Hannity come out and endorse a candidate? Sean Hannity wanted a true conservative but wouldn’t come out and endorse one. Kinda feels like he was more interested in doing his show. You can come out for a candidate and still be fair. Mark Levin came out and stated who he would vote for. Sarah Palin did the same thing. Romney is afraid to go on Levin’s show. Well, I guess it looks like we are stuck with a liberal for a candidate. And the only ones to blame are conservatives.

There is no way we will ever get a true conservative candidate when you have such unprincipled people, and the money to do what you want. Tea Party time?

Romney care has also been a detriment and unsuccessful in Massachusetts.

Steve
Guest
Steve

I agree that there are problems with Romney-Care. But it is still a states right issue and the Majority of the people in Massachusetts like Romney-Care. Also, if they hatted Romney-Care do you think he would have won 72% of the vote.

sDee
Member
sDee

Are you trying to convince yourself of that or us?

We work directly with a support line for patients in Massachusetts. Romenycare is really bad news. Rising copays, shortages of doctor time, increasing medication costs, rising premiums. Insurance companies under under cost and regulatory pressure. Some plans are pushing $2000 an month.

In other words it is working exactly according to plan. Collapsing private insurance. It will probably be the first state to collapse and force its citizens to obamacare plans.

It is not a states rights issue. The states do not have the power to violate our rights under the US Constitution. Well…unless you happen to be Romney or Obama.

Steve

I will have to disagree with you on this, I believe that health care should be a state rights issue, But sense your for big government I guess we will just have to disagree

sDee

States have always regulated health insurance. Of course they can. What they have never done until Romenycare is force citizens to buy a product from a private company.

Would Romney have been able to mandate that all gun owners pay a $100,000 fee because gunshot injuries impact the health care costs of the entire state? According to his Statist view he could, because the Mass Constitution does not prevent it. But the that would an unreasonable measure designed to strip the citizens of their second amendment rights.

Mitt dispatches 1 or 2 guys like you to every blog, and you all wind up posting the most inane stuff.

And then pray-tell who shall bail out the state once it goes bankrupt? Do you want to pay for California because they are on the verge of being bailed out by our tax dollars even though many of us do not reside there. Or how about the city of Detroit or Chicago, Harrisburg? This is a statists argument. Think a little harder and see the big picture. It ends private insurance and forces an individual mandate. That’s the plan and once more, it is going as expected.

If Romney care is only a states rights issue, that is once again seeing the Constitution as a document that is flawed. That it is putting forth negative rights which limit gov’t, instead of one which tells us what the gov’t should do on our behalf. Gee, who said that? 3 guesses and the first 2 do not count.

This is funny coming from Rush Limbaugh. Because guess what, he endorsed Romney in 2008. Nothing has changed with Romney since 2008. He attacks him now because of Romney-care. If Rush has such a hard time with it then way did he endorse him two years after he passed it.

Romney-care was passed in 2006 and he had no problem with it until Obama-Care. There is a big difference between the two. Mainly, Romney-care is a state right, and if every state would have taken action to solve there own healthcare problems then Obama-care would have never passed. Health Care must be solved at the state level (which Massachusetts did) with the federal government supporting them by getting out of the way.

Karl Rogue
Guest
Karl Rogue

You’re nuts. The federal government didn’t support Mass by getting out of the way. The Beacon Hill Institute’s 5 year study found that Mass care dramatically increased costs, and passed most of these onto the federal government–ie, onto us, taxpayers in the other 56 states:

State health care expenditures have risen by $414 million over the period;
• Private health insurance costs have risen by $4.311 billion over the period;
• The federal government has spent an additional $2.418 billion on Medicaid for
Massachusetts.
• Over this period, Medicare expenditures increased by $1.426 billion;
• For a total cumulative cost of $8.569 billion over the period; and
• The state has been able to shift the majority of the costs to the federal
government.

Thanks a lot, Governor Rombot, you socialist a-hole.

Ok then, if it was so bad then why did Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Glenn Beck endorse Romney in 2008, that is two years after Romney-Care.

I’m not saying that I support everything about Romney-Care. But I do support states having the ability to tackle the problem as they would like to. It is still a state rights issue and over 80% of the legislates working on Romney-Care were democrats.

There are things in Romney-Care that even Romney would do different. But guess what, Getting things done in a very liberal state requires working with the other side, and if you cant work with the other side and be able to compromise especially governing in a state with over 80% democrats then nothing would ever get done.

Again, because Romneycare was not a substantive issue at that time. Once it was, clearly all of them have backed off. Now that data is available for a comprehensive examination of Romneycare, they’re speaking to what’s in their hearts and minds, and that’s that this is not a working solution. If it were, why wouldn’t the other 57 states have already adopted it? If Romney is so beloved, why didn’t he run for a 2nd term, Steve? Why did he completely vanish from the electorate? Also, why did so many folks champion Romneycare’s mandate until they actually went and looked at it? That’s b/c your guy disguised it under the guise of ‘personal responsibility’! Well, look what the White House is trying to re-brand Obamacare with this week … why it’s a “Republican Personal Responsibility Clause”!

See, Karl, methinks the strongest point you raised is the one that seemingly gets zero traction with Romneybots … the fact that the federal govt had to pump up MA’s Medicaid to keep it solvent. The biggest problem I’ve seen with the healthcare industry — as a billing/finance person within it — is that the first sign anyone sees of government payment, the charging rates go through the roof. Why? That’s because the U.S. government payments are so, so low. The only way to recover some — not all — of what you spend to operate the business is, necessarily, to demand higher rates. I’ve given this one example before, but I think it’s so telling about how difficult it is inside the healthcare industry that I’m gonna repeat myself: for a fairly routine blood test, I worked with one very small facility.

Steve, you’ve been living on a island. Let me bring you up to speed. Romneycare wasn’t much of an issue in the 2008 election cycle precisely b/c it really hadn’t been in effect long enough for any substantive analysis to prove anything. It only passed in 2006 — with lingering effectiveness rolling in late 2006 and early 2007. The best serious analysis into Romneycare was done and published in 2009 and later. Now, this is NOT to say that there weren’t factors that could be analyzed in 2008; it’s only to say that, given the size and scope, there just wasn’t any serious review being done. The numbers are in, and, presently, Romneycare is NOT popular institutionally; even worse, it’s bankrupting Massachusetts. So … if that’s the canard you wanna embrace … feel free to do it. It’s ok. No one’s gonna fault you for it. And, to continue the… Read more »

Romneycare only *works* because the American taxpayers are funding it. So yeah, the Federal Government supports it, but not by “getting out of the way” but by TAXPAYER $$$$ from EVERY OTHER STATE.

You seem like an intelligent person, so I can only assume you don’t bother to find out the facts because the facts prove your arguement doesn’t hold water. Do yourself a favor. Don’t stay ignorant. Do some research on the costs and consequences of Romneycare. I’ll even give you a place to start:

Yes, the Federal Govt did support them, as in we supported Romneycare to the tune of 585 million dollars and we are still supporting it today…what a crock!!

Can’t do it.
