Yet, Rush thinks that it is all a hoax and that Obama is more scared of Perry. It really is hard for me to even think like the average Rush fan. How can one be so brainwashed that you really do think that Perry would be a more formidable force against Obama? Yet, that is what Rush does to you.
A couple of weeks ago, Rush declared that Mitt Romney is not conservative. This, almost four years after he declared Romney to be a three-stool conservative. Has Romney become less conservative since then? No, but Rush has small minds to mold. Furthermore, the grassroots has gone buck wild and he can't risk his entertainment enterprise over the pitchforked anger of his Tea Party audience.
The Republican Party has fallen a long ways from the days of William Buckley. It no longer concerns itself with the details of governing. It is strictly a reality show. That is why Rick Perry and Herman Cain can offer tax plans that glaze over basic math. That is why right-wing bloggers can praise Rick Perry's energy plan despite the fact that it reveals that Rick Perry knows nothing about energy. And that is why Rick Perry has given up on the idea of debating before a live audience and instead will completely give himself to paid advertisements and winks and nods affirming birtherism and religious bigotry. Sorry Mr. Buckley, but this is now the Grand Ole Party.
And this is why Mitt Romney is such a threat to Rush Limbaugh. The former governor of Massachusetts represents a small possibility that a Republican who is interested in governing will reside in the White House. Limbaugh's entertainment complex will take a hit. Rushbo will not have Obama to use a fear-creating prop.
So, my dear Rombots. Repeat after me: Rush Limbaugh is not on your side. He wants you to lose.
