Obama’s Secret Weapon (Rush Limbaugh) Urges the GOP to STAY WHITE!




Is Rush Limbaugh working for the Democratic Party? It sure seems that way after Limbaugh told his listeners that the Republican Party doesn’t need to court minority voters.






Limbaugh responded to calls within his own party to increase outreach to minority voters by pointing to the minorities who spoke at the Republican convention, “Everybody says that we need to reach out to minorities. We have plenty of highly achieved minorities in our party, and they are in prominent positions. And they all have a common story. They all came from nothing. Their parents came from nothing. They worked hard. Told those stories with great pride. Evoked tears, and didn’t work. And don’t tell me that people didn’t watch the convention, didn’t see it. There’s a reason it doesn’t work.”



Rush Limbaugh offered the Republican Party this horrid piece of advice for a few different reasons. First, his listeners don’t want to hear that they are the past. White conservatives are still trying to convince themselves that they hold all of the political power in this country, but a larger and less talked about reason is that it is in Rush Limbaugh’s best interests to keep Obama in office and Democrats strong.



Why?



Rush Limbaugh is the voice of the angry right. If Mitt Romney would have won the election, how would Limbaugh have kept his audience revved up and angry? Limbaugh has already suffered massive financial and ratings losses thanks to the Sandra Fluke boycott. Can you imagine the impact a happy right would have on his bottom line? Rush Limbaugh keeps offering terrible advice, which Republicans too often keep taking, because his business benefits when Democrats succeed. Of course, Limbaugh wants Republicans to fail. Of course, he wants the party to stay white. If Republicans continue on the white path, Rush Limbaugh gets to continue his lucrative career as the right’s preeminent race baiter. If the Republican Party changes, Limbaugh will be on the outs. If the Republican tent could ever include minorities, Rush Limbaugh and his love child of George Wallace and Bull Connor impression would soon find themselves out of favor with a darker skinned conservative audience.

2. Rush is mush....

even Lindsay Graham said the Republican Party is producing enough angry white men to keep them afloat.

4. I listened to the entire Rush Limpball show today, it was quite entertaing. As I suspected he would

Say they should have ran a true conservative. Some asshat called in today and says a moderate is someone that doesn't have guts to call himself a liberal.
I hope they keep up that way of thinking.

5. You ask ANY one of these crouching weasels exactly what is a ' Librule ',

and you will get the same blank-faced, empty stare ' duh-duh-duh ' response fishing around their hollow head for a bullshit answer. They have been spoon fed this hatred of ' Librules ' from the same neo-hate-pimps that are in the business of keeping diverse sides polarized and under control!!
