S.E. Cupp: ´We can´t be afraid
to call out Rush Limbaugh

Daily Caller, by Matt K. Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 2/14/2013 10:08:21 AM

The New York Times has a must-read up on how the GOP is losing the tech war — and losing the youth vote. But tucked away in the piece, I found this:[W]e can’t be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh,” said Goodwin’s fiancée, S. E. Cupp, a New York Daily News columnist and a co-host of”The Cycle”on MSNBC. “If we can get three Republicans on three different networks saying, ‘What Rush Limbaugh said is crazy and stupid and dangerous,’ maybe that’ll give other Republicans cover” to denounce the talk-show host as well.

Comments:
She´s on MSNBC. Has she called out any of of the race baiters on MSNBC, like Chris Matthews or Toure? Her network just hired Robert Gibbs, will she call him out?

The people who are crazy, stupid and dangerous are the people who think Rush is crazy, stupid and dangerous.

Is there more to this story? Is there something specific that Rush said that she believes to be "crazy and stupid and dangerous" or is she just sucking up to lefties by attacking Rush in general?

The vast majority of journalists would love to have a documented reporting and prediction accuracy level approaching Rush Limbaugh´s. No other journalist or reporter in the country has the same level of scrutiny and criticism put on everything they say. It would crush most of them. They may not like the way he states the issue, but they have only very rarely been able to fault the accuracy of his statements.

What concerns me about Rush is the sense of depression I feel, recently, when I listen to him. And it is the same feeling I have had since November. In the old days, Rush bounced back, after a few days, from defeat. He does not seem to be bouncing back. I think he sees the end of this country as we knew it and cannot get his head around why people who have had the privilege of living in this country, are so eager to flush it down the drain. And, sadly, I think he is right.

S.E. Cupp is a solid conservative. That does not mean she cannot have real reservations about Rush Limbaugh. Many of us do. I disagree with her that he is "crazy" or "stupid", but when he manipulates his fans for his own purposes, he does real harm and so could be considered "dangerous" in that way. People tend to forget that Rush Limbaugh is an extremely successful and astute entertainer. He is not a visionary.

Limbaugh is a dead-ender. He would rather have Democrats in the Senate than Republicans who are not as conservative as he is. Think Delaware, Indiana, Missouri and Nevada with their crackpot Senate candidate losers.

I don´t hear Susan Collins crying that the Republican Party is too conservative. Somehow she manages just fine.

Ever notice anti-Rush posters never give any actual points of disagreement with Rush? At least they should propose something in disagreement with Rush´s statements and not make the usual empty ad hominem attacks. I suppose they figure on influencing the weak vessels to swell the rovette ranks.

This is the 2nd comment Cupp has made that is an attack on Conservatives. Don´t care to spend the time to search for the 1st time. Suffice to say, she´s no more a conservative anymore than the boob attorney who claimed to be one while calling to ban and confiscate firearms.

I´m not worried about Rush but this country is in deep kimshee with the reelection of zero.

I enjoy Rush Limbaugh. I particularly like his meaty economic analyses. As for S.E. Cupp, I don´t enjoy her work or what she´s really about, television appearances. She´s largely making a name for herself by selling her looks, targeting the low information male voter, which doesn´t appeal to me. There´s no depth in anything she says, her conservatism is strictly "pop-right." Go right ahead and attack Rush, Ms. Cupp. I still won´t find anything useful in either your appearance or any of your fluff analysis

Exactly right, 15.

Then what those Rush haters call out is some comment that they heard Rush said.

But when the transcript comes out, the haters go mute. The transcripts have made many a liar of the critics.

They don´t listen to Rush, and they are all too eager to believe the worst hearsay.

Oops, Ms. Cupp..... You fail on two-out-of-three accusations..... Rush is NOT "crazy," nor is he "stupid," but he is "dangerous" to you Obama butt-sniffers, water-carriers and useful-idiots.

But be of good cheer ~~ being 33% correct in your accusations puts you far above the scores of your fellow butt-sniffers on MSNBC!

Good for their ratings, bad for America.

If we lose the house we will see the end of America as we know it. Guess they all think they´re the answer.

Rush has opinions, but on major subjects he usually throws the "meat" out and enough information for the listeners to make up their own mind. He gives his audience the courtesy of realizing they have a mind capable of disseminating information.

The anti-Rush, anti-Sarah folk on here are not Conservatives. They are Leftists that lack morality or principles. They hate everything about Conservatism except the right to be prosperous without government interference. Since we happen to believe in much of what Rush believes, that somehow makes us manipulated? I guess as long as we just sit on our hands and do not get involved with such things as "Operation Chaos" then we are good lil minions of the RINO elitists. Rush has been on national radio for 25 yrs and all you can do is name one thing? No wonder you hate him so much.

Limbaugh has suckered many of you on this Rubio-Schumer amnesty gambit. "I like what you´re doing and wish you luck". Rush has turned into a nattering old fool ever since he was remarried. As for, CUPP, she is a fool´s fool, sophmoric, and good for a date or two but won´t shut her ignorant mouth long enough for the romance to go. These are the Whig death throes, my friends.

Denouncing the ideas of people with whom one disagrees -and even the people themselves- as crazy, stupid and dangerous is the Left´s idea of political debate. All such partisans know how to do is to try to marginalize or, better still, silence opinions with which they disagree. Character assassination is a principal tactic used by Leftists against people who disagree with them. The political, for the Left, is indeed the personal. Leftist dogmatism and intolerance is largely the consequence of a massive failure of truly liberal education, which has been replaced by indoctrination and propaganda for a Leftist world view within which children can become permanently trapped, unable even to conceive of a legitimate alternative.

What in the world is Cupp talking about? Rush welcomes reasoned, civil debate. Rush authentically helps fill the void left by the remarkable Bill Buckley. (...Remember when the statist pbs removed this one remaining conservative voice from their program line-up? Public Broadcasting should have been defunded immediately for their blatant political bias!!!)

are "antiPalin, Rove luvin, Romney is a severe conservative, there is no t party" adherents and are trying to influence "the weak vessels to swell the rovette ranks.

#40 - your name says it all. As usual, you took one line out of context. Rush has explained endlessly that when he told Rubio this, he was congratulating him on his successful voicing of conservative principles - he has not signed on to amnesty, and neither has most of his audience. But you wouldn´t know that because you don´t listen to Rush, you get your info from the likes of MSNBC & Co.

Funny how the same posters hate Rush and hate Sarah Palin too. Verrryy interesting - we know your game.

What #12, #28 & #30 said. And Thank you #50 for expressing the feelings of many of us, who while we listen to Rush Limbaugh it doesn´t mean we must agree with all his tactics. Operation chaos WAS a debacle and this past election a disaster because President Ronald Reagan was not on the ballot. I have been a Rush fan since 1988, and a lifelong Conservative, and am tired of being called "not a Conservative" or a "leftist", because the great "they" out here decide who IS and who is NOT "conservative". Friends can disagree and still be friends, but here lately, not so much. What has happened to the salon? Indeed..

Your right #53 Rush didn´t want Obama to win so he supported Romney, how foolish of him. I think SC Cup is going the way of Morning Joe, it happens at that station. Rush Limbaugh is one of the reasons conservatism has come as far as it has. I don´t agree with him 100% but I don´t agree with anyone 100%. unfortunately many posters here cannot support anyone they don´t agree with 100%, again this is why we lose elections.

I know I don´t perfectly align my views with everyone here, but I´ll tell you one thing, I´m directing my ordinance toward the LEFT.

Don´t worry, the leftist shills and online trolls who are deliberatley trying to sap our strength will be smoked out soon enough and dealt with accordingly. They always betray themselves at some point.

Sorry but Sippy Cupp is NOT a solid conservative. She is not even a conservative. She is a sometimes libertarian. But she doesn´t even get that right. Cupp is an airhead ditz who thinks she is "all that" and who believe she is superior to everyone else. But she is just another young aggressive media whore who wants to tell everyone else what to believe. I never liked her or her ugly New York glasses. Rush did not manipulate his audience. OC was NOT manipulation. People knew exactly what that was all about. 28, I used to appreciate your posts, but I no longer recognize your comments. #28 is not a lib, but certainly their views have changed a lot over the years.

I have noticed, however that we do have some more trolls (who even admit it in their names)and seminar posters who seemed to have come over from leftist sites just to create havoc.

50% put obama back in charge of the slippery slope our country is on. Some probable voter fraud but those who think the GOP lost for being too moderate will assure Hitlary takes over in 2016.

Political babes in the woods and political naivete IMO. Us in shambles and the dems owning the news and hence the views? Tea Party vs Rove indeed and call a Republican in a liberal state a rino instead of appreciating the seat as a number to have a majority. We really need more Akins and others that the public fear more than they do left wing tyrants?

I listen to Rush, so I pretty much don´t pay attention to what anybody else says about him. I can make up my own mind.

Rush is very impressive, does his homework so extensively that all important national news topics get covered thoroughly. I disagree that he is not a "visionary". His vision is the values and standards that this country was founded on, and the effort to return to those values and standards. What more vision could you want (if you are a conservative)?

Never even heard of S.E. Cupp until this post. Why would I care what she says?

Teacher resignations up
significantly in Wake County
WTVD News [Raleigh,NC], by Heather Waliga    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/18/2014 7:48:00 AM     Post Reply
More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

Rights to family land may

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

TCM at 20

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the
Washingtonian that make
Jay Carney look ridiculous

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

Deaths at Phoenix VA hospital
may be tied to delayed care
Arizona Republic [Phoenix,AZ], by Dennis Wagner    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/10/2014 8:46:23 AM     Post Reply
The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

After five days of coordinated effort by local, state and federal law enforcement, a Wake Forest man reported missing on Saturday was rescued late Wednesday from his kidnappers. Frank Arthur Janssen, 63, was taken from his home at 1401 Sky Hill Place and was being held in an apartment in Atlanta. In announcing his rescue, the FBI did not detail the motive for or group responsibility for his kidnapping. It was unclear if anyone had been taken into custody in the kidnapping.WRAL News has learned that Janssen´s daughter is an assistant district attorney in Wake County who prosecutes gang and

Prince George undertook his first royal crawl-about today as he attended a parent and baby group with his own, world-famous, mummy and daddy. The eight-month-old was brought along by his clearly proud parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to the ‘playdate’ organised by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington. Following his scene-stealing appearance on Monday when the family arrived in New Zealand to begin their three week tour Down Under, all eyes were on the future king as he was introduced to ten babies born within a few weeks of his own birthday, on

A once-prominent socialite was found guilty Tuesday in the 1996 Tucson car bomb killing of her ex-husband after spending years abroad living a lavish lifestyle across Europe. Pamela Phillips, 56, had pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. During the trial that began in February, Phillips´ lawyers told jurors their client had nothing to gain from the death of businessman Gary Triano and that she was the victim of overzealous authorities who failed to follow other leads. They said Phillips was already a successful real estate broker with her own money, and suggested that Triano had

President Obama shifts
focus to economy

President Obama will host two events on the economy this week as Democrats seek to pivot the political discussion away from the healthcare law. Democrats dispute that that the healthcare law will be a liability for the party in this year’s elections, and celebrated the news last week that ObamaCare enrollments topped 7 million. Still, they argue that jobs and the economy will be the central battleground in November. “That’s the debate that the election will be about, jobs and the budget,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week. Obama will be hosting two events on the economy

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
