Pathetic Limbaugh Lies About Democrats Attacks on Romney



Rush Limbaugh sunk to a new low today, in a blatantly dishonest and pathetic assessment of how the Democrats views the candidacy of Republican Mitt Romney. At the close of a discussion, which you can read here, Limbaugh states:

"The Democrats are afraid of any candidate they have sought to destroy. You can start with Sarah Palin, you can move on to Santorum. Any -- any conservative who showed any interest -- the Democrats set out to destroy. That's who they're genuinely afraid of. They are not hammering Mitt Romney at all, and Donna Brazile let the cat out of the bag. Don't doubt me."

Not at all?   Really Rush?

I guess the following are expression of love and support:

Democrats Keep Focus on Romney (12/30/11)

DNC attacks Mitt Romney as a flip-flopper in new ad (11/30/11)

Dem Attacks On Romney Indicate Preference for Gingrich (12/5/11)

In fact, just Google DNC attacks Romney to find a treasure trove of info.


Now the incident Rush used to advance his deceptive narrative was a completely partisan post debate assessment by Donna Brazile Saturday night, during a conversation with correspondent John Karl and moderator George Stephanopolus:

BRAZILE: Mitt Romney won tonight because no one touched him -- and for Democrats, you know what? It was good news for us.

KARL: Why is that?

BRAZILE: Because we believe that the weakest candidate is the candidate that the Republicans are not attackin', and that's Mitt Romney.

KARL: Oh, come on.

STEPHANOPOULOS: No, you don't believe that, Donna.
----------------

Now Rush is dishonestly spinning this story as Stephanopoulos' response as being irritated with Brazille for letting the secret out of the bag. In reality, the entire panel laughed in her face when she uttered these words. Nobody believed and Brazille herself could be seen with a grin on her face, which bespoke the mischief she was trying to create.

I know this for a fact, because I was watching it live. Thankfully, I don't Rush to interpret or explain things to me.

It's really sad to see someone you liked and enjoyed listening to, lose all credibility with these tired, stale political theories. Rush trots these dog-eared arguments every cycle. I think he's just tired of the grind, since the things he says are so easily debunked.

Rush likes to say "Don't doubt me."

I don't have to doubt you Rush, cause I don't believe you.

What is wrong with this man? He has to want Obama re-elected. It provides better ratings.

When he says "Don't doubt me", he is spinning something, or perpetuating a lie.....plain and simple

Terrye said...

Well, exactly who does he think the Democrats are afraid of? Herman Cain...this is just a way for Rush to explain away supporting people like Palin..they go after her hence they fear her hence we must all support her..never mind her crappy poll numbers..that is all part of the ruse..Pathetic.

I saw when Brazile said this, and she didn't even believe it herself. She kind of chuckled and half laughed, clearly a joke she didn't believe herself. Her statement was something you throw out when you're losing an argument--just to see if there's anybody foolish enough who'll bite.

As soon as I heard it, I knew Rush would use it as proof of Romney's supposed weakness.

Notice, too, that Rush didn't mention a recent interview with Larry O'Donnell of MSNBC. In this candid, casual, and honest interview, O'Donnell frankly states that the Democrats do not want to run against Romney.

There's no point in Rush mentioning this, since it doesn't fit his agenda.

Rush constantly accuses liberal media of ignoring stories that don't fit a narrative, but he is guilty of this very thing all the time. In this case, Rush is ignoring the O'Donnell story because it doesn't fit his narrative. Rushes ratings have been slipping, which means less revenue for his network. He spends too much time peddling his tea, and doing live commercials in the middle of a monologue. He has become tiresome and I rarely listen beyond the first hour, if that.

Doug,

I hope Rush's head explodes when Romney wins. He is going completely insane. Every day, it gets more embarrassing for me that I ever listened to him. What a pathetic little lying sack of crap he has become.

As I posted on Rush's fb link where he repeated this, I stated:
I'm confused, does that mean we don't like Romney or that this ruse by the Democrats to turn us against Romney? By the way, the answer is it is a ruse. Obama's ego is so large he thinks he can defeat any Republican.

Doug NYC-I watched it live as well and it was quite obvious to anyone with a brain that old Donna Brazille was being sarcastic.

Limbaugh is such a lying pig. I guess he really does want 4 more years of Obama.Got to keep the ratings up for another 4 years with the anti-Obama agenda.

I literally said to myself the very moment the other liberal members of the panel scoffed at Donna Brazille for her silly comments that Rush would spin this to mean the opposite of what was intended......and.....well, Don't doubt me folks. It's hard to believe that I'd be saying I'm done w/ Rush, but this campaign has brought out a side of him that stinks to high Heaven. That goes for Levin too.

Last spring on a Sunday TV talk show, Donna Brazile seconded George Will's statement that "Tim Pawlenty is the candidate to beat." I was convinced at the time that she did so with tongue in cheek. Subsequent developments proved my suspicions correct. Pawlenty dropped out in August 2011.

Donna is an adept partisan for Democrats (and George Will was/is still mourning over the failure of his darling, Mitch Daniels, to run).

Limbaugh and everyone else KNOWS that Donna is playing a partisan game. She's joking. Wink-wink, nod-nod. Only a fool would believe that she's sincerely revealing to the public who it is that Obama fears.

Conclusion? Limbaugh takes his audience for fools.

Does anyone know why rush was for mitt in'08 and not this time around? Really curious.

Alan said...

Rush's excuse for being for Romney in 08 is that he was the most conservative candidate among McCain, Huckabee, and Romney. Even though Rush called Romney a "full spectrum conservative" back then, Rush won't fess up to his "flip-flop" on Romney. How ironic is that?

Rush, Levin, and others are looking for a reincarnation of Reagan, but there is no such person (and if there was one, it would be Romney).
