Looking ahead to 2012
"We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We believe that the preamble of the Constitution contains an inarguable truth, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty, freedom -- and the pursuit of happiness."
Are these the words of a wacko as CNN and the Times make him out to be?
No, but these are the words of Rush Limbaugh as he called on fellow conservatives to take back the country.
Limbaugh praised Obama as one of the most gifted politicians he has seen, but said, "It just breaks my heart that he does not use these extraordinary talents and gifts to motivate and inspire the American people to be the best they can be. He's doing just the opposite."
Obama treats the American people as if we are ALL in NEED...and that we need Him and the government to fix everything. There has been more radical government intervention affecting the lives of the People using the People's money during his first 3 months, what's the next 3 plus years going to be like? Is he just "throwing enough shit on the wall to see what sticks"?? Is he just kinda clueless and doesn't want anyone to say he did not do 'enough' or 'soon enough'? Is he just not able to come off the fast pace of his campaigning to slow down long enough to Think? Or maybe he does see the writing on the wall that he will not be the Savior or so well liked for very long, so he had better put in place all the 'plans' of his politics. Obama's plan is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. The Government has never been successful in this kind of management.
Looking ahead to the 2012 election, Limbaugh said conservatives will have to choose the right candidate to take the country back.
"We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are, because we make the mistake of assuming that people know. What they know is largely incorrect, based on the way we're portrayed in pop culture, in the drive-by media, by the Democrat party", says Rush.
I would HOPE that conservatives would NOT hang our hats on any One future candidate at this time. Instead, let all Republicans get out there and speak on All matters, either for or against, in hopes of painting a clearer picture of what the new face of GOP or being a Republican really is!
The reason the media portrays Republicans the way they do and the reason we are misunderstood is that there aren't enough of those in office, the ones who can easily get in front of the cameras, who are willing to 'say it like it is'! If 5 or 6 Rebublican politicians would hit the cameras per day and start portraying conservative viewpoints, the Republican party won't be as 'invisible' as we are now.
We need to give people a Reason to vote Republican. Define what a Republican is first, then pick the candidate that best portrays what the new path of the Rebublican Party. It's a shame that a radio celeb, bless his heart, has to be the voice that gets everyone's attention.
