The GOP Must Choose: Rush Limbaugh or Minority Voters

"He just can't understand why the Republican Party has so much trouble with blacks, Hispanics and women. Here's how he put it on his nationally syndicated radio show, channeling the way that a lot of conservatives are feeling after looking at the demographic breakdown of Election 2012"


"It is foolish to tear one's hair in grief, as though sorrow would be
made less by baldness."
Marcus Tullius Cicero

He is a lost fool

1. Let's not hold our breath. The GOP loves Limbaugh and needs him badly to fire up their voters.

2. This is a powerful article.

I don't pay much attention to Rush Limbaugh, so I had no idea of some of the things he's said. But having heard the "slut" comment, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

I wish there was some way to get someone like that off the air.

4. I think it's too late for that. They have already lost the minority vote far at least

a generation. Dumping Limbaugh would not change that.

5. Studies show that once a voter votes twice for the same party, they become strongly associated with

that party. Most of these new voters once they vote twice and see that in normal times it really doesn't take that much time or effort to vote will remain true to their party.
Similar to Pepsi or Coke drinkers, once they choose they have brand loyalty.

6. please choose Rush but I was listening to Hannity yesterday

and he goes to commercial with the following: Sean Hannity is taking this time to list the accomplishments in president obama's first term. And then you have silence except with crickets in the background.
So Sean, killing Osama Bin Laden was not an accomplishment?
I guess Hannity didn't care about the 911 attack.
