Rush Limbaugh doesn’t speak for me…

The following rant concerns the article listed below…

[ More fallacies of distraction and garbage coming from the new administration…  The Obama propaganda machine has identified Rush Limbaugh as their “dialectical” opposite — a “straw man” tactic if ever I’ve seen one…  It’s their hope, of course, that all those who might voice criticism over their Marxist policies of deconstruction will be tagged as a “Rush supporter,” a “dittohead,” and so on.  This is a propaganda technique meant to ridicule and belittle opponents instead of engaging them in real dialog…

Rush Limbaugh ain’t MY spokesman regarding the execrable policies of socialism coming from the Obama party machine…. His voice is not mine — or of other true conservatives.  In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me to discover that Mr. Limbaugh is himself a product of the Disney company (or at least Pixar)…  His views are not truly conservative.  He is part of the problem — a cog in the machine — a symptom of the greater sickness of this country.

And of course Mr. Limbaugh is falling right into step with the game, upping the rhetoric and engorging his swollen ego to the bursting point…   So why Rush?  Because he’s an easy mark and he makes the Big Lie easier to promulgate. He represents the antithesis of the “Fairness Doctrine” they would like to make into law (read censorship)…  Knock him down and claim that you’ve dealt with criticism…  Nahrishkeit!  This is an evil plan coming from an evil administration — and it’s also gutless, I might add.  If ObamaCo really wants to go up against some true conservatives, let him go after some real thinkers, not a pathetic talking blowhard like Rush Limbaugh. Let them dialog with Ron Paul, for starters…  Shame on you con artists… ]

Rush Job: Inside Dems’ Limbaugh plan

Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House.

“If you take me out,” Limbaugh said addressing Obama directly, “if you can wipe me out in a debate and prove to the rest of America that what I say is senseless and wrong, do you realize you will own the United States of America? You will have no opposition.”

The strategy took shape after Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville included Limbaugh’s name in an October poll and learned their longtime tormentor was deeply unpopular with many Americans, especially younger voters. Then the conservative talk-radio host emerged as an unapologetic critic of Barack Obama shortly before his inauguration, when even many Republicans were showering him with praise.

Soon it clicked: Democrats realized they could roll out a new GOP bogeyman for the post-Bush era by turning to an old one in Limbaugh, a polarizing figure since he rose to prominence in the 1990s.

Limbaugh is embracing the line of attack, suggesting a certain symbiosis between him and his political adversaries.

“The administration is enabling me,” he wrote in an e-mail to POLITICO. “They are expanding my profile, expanding my audience and expanding my influence. An ever larger number of people are now being exposed to the antidote to Obamaism: conservatism, as articulated by me. An ever larger number of people are now exposed to substantive warnings, analysis and criticism of Obama’s policies and intentions, a ‘story’ I own because the [mainstream media] is largely the Obama Press Office.”

The bigger, the better, agreed Carville. “It’s great for us, great for him, great for the press,” he said of Limbaugh. “The only people he’s not good for are the actual Republicans in Congress.”
