Obama´s Lies About Romney
Worked Because Republicans
Were Afraid to Define Obama

Rushlimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/12/2013 5:31:13 PM

RUSH: I was dead serious. We talked about this yesterday. The Democrats, Obama, they can´t win in the arena of ideas. That´s not what their campaigns are about. They can´t even give voice honestly to their ideas, so what they do is simply discredit, tarnish, destroy, ruin, whatever word you want to use, their opponents. And they do it, in the case of the presidential campaign, there was two to three months in the spring to summer where all that Romney stuff ran. Romney didn´t have any money.

There wasn´t one public voice in 1912 who ever tried to explain the driving force behind everything Obama had done or planned to do. No public voice ever said that Obama is an angry, vindictive, obsessive, determined, jealous, racist, self-identified black man (he had a choice, you know)who´s total purpose in life is to get even (using his own measuring stick, of course). Why not? It´s true. Every public voice was gutless throughout the whole year. They´re still gutless.

With all due respect #1, the next election has already started. The left is already smearing any potential candidate. The time to fight back is now. Or never.

The establishment Republicans are a bunch of wimps, that´s why Romney lost. Now by all accounts, the establishment Republicans are about to cave and go along with a liberal Democrat designed "path to citizenship" amnesty for 11 to 20 million illegal aliens, thus handing the Democrats 10 million or so new voters in the coming years. Once the wimpy Republicans do that, their chances of ever winning in the future will be slim to none.

The constant smearing of Romney by folks on our side during the primaries certainly did not help either. I can think of a couple of radio show hosts that were were relentless in their bemoaning of Romney. One of them finally got on board maybe the last couple of months before the election. Those on the right that refused to vote for Romney because he wasn´t their idea of the perfect conservative candidate were not exactly helpful either. As far as I am concerned we did just as much damage to our candidate as the left did.

This is exactly what many of us felt and tried to get across during the campaign.

Romney took the high road and lost. Obama and the Democrats took the low road and won.

Republicans are reluctant to get down and wallow in the mire of the political gutter where the Democrats and much of the American people live.

Like Romney, they strive to remain above such ugly, nasty, personal partisan politics. They prefer to stick to the issues. So they lose. But they cannot quite figure it out. What happened?

They go back to the drawing board, the same drawing board, and sally forth to lose again. They are clueless - like Cal Thomas, who actually said that Dr. Benjamin Carson owes Barack Obama an apology for his comments at the National Prayer Breakfast!

Nothing better illustrates the problem Republicans, as well as other decent, normal Americans have in dealing with radicals like Barack Obama & Company. They are playing by an entirely different set of rules - rules that are certainly better ones, but which the other side does not have the slightest intention of following.

Rush is right.
Never enough discussion, we have to learn from our mistakes. Negative ads DO work, and Republicans have to fight back using the same tactics the democrats use. DOUBLE.

I guess my point is that as our candidate Romney should have been able to count of republicans (at least MOST of them) to rally behind him and we as a party did not do that. There was a very long,drawn out primary that bloodied Romney and after that there was luke warm support from other republicans that had been trying to get the GOP nod if any support or endorsement at all of Gov. Rommey. We had two of our most influential conservative talkers that even after he got the nod continued to bemoan him and do even more damage to his candidacy. And we had far to many that stayed home and didn´t bother to vote or they threw their hissy fit and did a write in or voted for Obama because Romney = more Obama (which is a CROCK). Boy we showed that pesky old Karl Rove though didn´t we? I have said it before and will say it again. We have a war going on within the party between the far right and the more moderate in the party and until that is resolved in such a way that will unify the party we will not win another election. I am sure of that.

66 million out of a nation of 315 million put 0bama back in office. Tens of millions looked on passively. The burden of shame is on the Republican Party leadership. They foisted their chosen candidate on the process, then couldn´t convince even McCain voters to show up. In adequate numbers. These people do not in their hearts believe in core Conservative principles, but are only too willing to split the difference with evil. The next election cycle is on us and they have learnt absolutely nothing.

#13, VERY brave and been on the front lines for conservatives for over 20 years. He did not have to go into much detail on the birth certificate mess - there were many other lines of fire on Obama. #3 is right, IMHO. If the GOP refuses to admit mistakes and openly fix the massive mess they made of the last two elections, then we WILL repeat it in 2016.

There was an element of over confidence in the anti-Obama vote. I believe a lot of people thought Romney had it in the bag. I had two co-workers hold "Victory Parties" the night of the election. The majority of the one I attended did not bother to vote.

Bingo #6. The dems didn´t beat Mitt, the Republicans did. thanks to Gingrich, santorum and the other stooges. And those who wanted the other guy stayed home and let Obama in, because they were "principled". Also the blatant widespread voter fraud didn´t help either. 53 voter pricincts in Philly and not 1 single vote for Mitt?? Obama wins every state where voter I.D wasn´t in place and lost every state that had it. The dems are corrupt people and they circle the wagons around their guy and the press helps too.

Rush is apparently a low information radio host.
He admits that he spends most of his time playing golf and surfing tech and gossip blogs.
He no longer does his own research.
And it shows.
There is this attitude on the right that says
" If I didn´t hear or see it, it didn´t happen ."
Rush is a perfect example of that.
Perhaps the hard hitting Romney ads against Obama -that began playing very early in the primaries-
did not play on his cable channel.
Or the really terrific Crossroads GRS / Rove ads.
Which were some of the best.
Limbaugh and Levin spent months trashing Romney
when Obama was the problem.
Limbaugh makes declarative statements about Republicans
which are patently false.
Like Republicans won´t criticize Obama.
Today Boehner said Obama didn´t have the guts
to cut spending.
Senator Lindsey Graham has eviscerated Obama
during the Benghazi hearings.
Limbaugh claimed that 4 million Republicans stayed home in 2012 vs 2008.
Limbaugh does not have his facts straight-again.
McCain got 59,948,00 votes in 2008.
Romney got 60,929,000 votes in 2012.
In 2012 , it was actually 4 million Democrats stayed home.
And any Republican who pouted and refused to vote for Romney is a fool.
Since 1992 , Limbaugh has never had a positive word
about the Republican nominee until
a few days before the election.
It is Limbaugh who has been afraid to discuss Obama´s sketchy birth certificate, hidden college records and his Muslim history.

A defining feature of President Obama´s second term is his willfulness in defying limits on executive power to suit his political goals, and no more so than with the Affordable Care Act. The judiciary is the last check on those abuses, and this week it will have another opportunity to vindicate the rule of law. On Tuesday the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear one of the more important legal challenges to ObamaCare´s lawless implementation. Unlike the challenge to the individual insurance mandate, Halbig v.

Michelle Obama has declared that access to the internet should be a universal right, in a rare and controversial foray into the world of international politics during a cultural visit to China. The US first lady, who is on a week-long trip to the communist state with her daughters and mother, risked upsetting her hosts in Beijing by declaring access to information as a birthright. During a speech at Peking University´s Stanford Centre, she called for greater freedoms while refraining from a direct attack on the controls over information in China.

The captain of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 received a two-minute call shortly before take-off from a mystery woman using a mobile phone number obtained under a false identity. It was one of the last calls made to or from the mobile of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah in the hours before his Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur 16 days ago. Investigators are treating it as potentially significant because anyone buying a pay-as-you-go SIM card in Malaysia has to fill out a form giving their identity card or passport number. Introduced as an anti-terrorism measure following 9/11, this ensures that every number is registered

Incessant "antifascist" propaganda from Moscow, baseless claims of attacks against Russians in Ukraine, incitement of Russian-speakers in eastern Ukraine, Russian troops without insignia seizing official buildings in Crimea, a stage-managed illegal plebiscite there and then its annexation by Russia, assurances from President Vladimir Putin that he has no further territorial designs in Europe (though, alas, he may be forced to intervene elsewhere to protect ethnic Russians)—yes, it all has the disturbing ring of the 1930s.

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.
