RUSH: There was a story -- I intended to already be into my media Stack here ´cause it´s great, but something just struck me. I didn´t go into detail on it yesterday. I intended to, I just didn´t get to it. There´s another thing I didn´t get to yesterday. There´s a bunch of polling data out, and I saved it for today, that American people and African-Americans think race relations are worse today than since Obama was elected, and even an Obama pollster is admitting this, and I´ve got the sound bites.

I don´t see any particular campaign, either. Cutting taxes? Nope Deficit reduction? Nope Closing the border? Nope Cutting the budget...how a budget bill? Nope. Repealing Obamacare? Obamacare? What is that? Nope.

The leading GOP Candidate for Gov. in MA is a pro choice, Scott Brown type, "me too" guy who wants to be nice to everyone. the conservative candidate is at 15%.

Thanks for posting this piece. I don´t listen to Rush much anymore, and I would have missed this.

I believe the R´s are lulled into believing the people are so fed up, blab, blab, blab. And, that conservatives have nowhere else to go blab, blab, blab IS their strategy.

I don´t know what the percentages are, but there are a number of forward thinking, Tea Party type voters whom see the holding-their-noses, and voting for the lesser of two evils is not working; and, in fact by doing so, we actually become ´enablers´ of the status quo, by keeping the D-lite R´s in office.

Again, I don´t know how many see the above logic, but I´m ONE who will NOT play that silly game any longer --- I say, let things get so bad that even the stupid voters will understand the nation is headed in the wrong direction, and that the present crop of R´s, and most whom are up for election, and reelection are complicit (perhaps intentionally so), in the destruction of America.

Umm -it doesn´t take much effort to find awesome Republicans campaigning hard for the House, Senate , Governorships and local and state seats.
However, if one spends all their time in a bubble existing solely of their gated compound and The Everglades Club and trolling tech blogs and watching Netflix , how would they know ?
As an example , Speaker Boehner has spent August
on a 14 state bus tour campaigning, fundraising and supporting Republicans at every stop.
Youtube has the video-The Drive to 245.
" The Drive to 245 " is the House Republican theme for November.
“We have members who need help,” Boehner says in the video. “But it’s also an opportunity to talk to an awful lot of Americans about what’s going on in our county.”
Boehner has done many town halls and raised campaign cash for
Stewart Mills of Minnesota;
Ryan Zinke of Montana;
Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin;
Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota;
and Mike Bost, Darlene Senger, former Rep. Bobby Schilling and Rep. Rodney Davis, all of Illinois.
Limbaugh has done..bupkus, but, complain and misrepresent.
Former VP Dick Cheney is hosting an enormous Republican gathering in Jackson Hole to strategize and fundraise for November.
Every Republican at all levels is working hard to get their message out and for Limbaugh to trash them
and say they aren´t, is a lie.

We keep hearing that if we don´t vote for the Republican - however bad - then the Democrat will win. I can just hear John Bell in 1860 saying if you vote for that third party Republican then Douglas the Democrat will win.

I am in NC, and supposedly, the dem, Kay Hagan is in trouble. She has pop up ads on almost all the websites I visit, and she is running TV ads touting how much she loves the military.

I have seen and heard zero ads from the Republican, Thom Tillis. He sure ran a lot of ads against the conservative challengers in the primary. He won the primary, and I think he only got 49% of the GOP vote. It´s almost September, isn´t it getting pretty late to be running ads? Especially since the local paper has hit pieces daily about Republicans.

I don´t have a lot of hope for Tillis. I just heard on the radio today, he is debating Kay Hagan, and it is being moderated by Stephanopolous. Is Thom Tillis that clueless?

This is further evidence why the GOP is wise to ignore Limbaugh and the rest of the elite talk radio Establishment.

Limbaugh isn´t saying Boehner doesn´t go out and raise money for his chosen candidates. Boehner´s well known for doing so. The GOP already controls the House so they don´t have to say what they´d do differently there. Rush said he doesn´t hear GOP saying what they´ll change, stop, make better when and if they control the Senate. In the transcript he says he reads a great deal but doesn´t see local news across the country and invites callers to let him know their impressions. My observation is Boehner has had daily access to microphones for 20 years, McConnell for 30 years. I´ve never heard either of them repeat scientific studies published in plain English proving CO2 doesn´t cause warming, or even that EPA says Obama regulations won´t effect CO2 emissions-which they´ve said. This needs to be repeated daily. Nor that multiple published studies say warming hasn´t happened in 15+ years and cooling may continue for 2 more decades. Nor that even if CO2 were poison, China controls global CO2 and keeps building coal plants. $1 billion a day is spent on something that doesn´t exist. It´s foundation is that Americans are greedy and must pay in perpetuity. Boehner and McConnell could point out scientific proof every day that this is fraud but they don´t. And it must be done daily to stop it. They either change the subject, say I´m not a scientist, or that regulations will hurt jobs. Global warming exponents have noted that Boehner and McConnell won´t deny AGW. This is just one issue that could differentiate Republicans from Democrats. In this case, it´s also a matter of massive fraud.

I give thanks daily that our local radio station carries Rush. Without him , the totally progressive nuts in this city have free reign to spout and spin everything from the economy,unemployment numbers to shoving at us environmental reports to suit their agenda - it is so refreshing to hear Rush expound on exactly the opposite construct to what the city rulers have said.

It´s hard to run strong, aggressively proud ads when your response to Democrat lies and destruction is "Me too!", and it´s impossible to claim you´ll go after Democrat corruption when you´ve solemnly sworn never to impeach Dear Leader Barack Hussein, no matter how lawless he becomes.

This GOP "wave" talk is just talk, so far. I hope it´s true but I see no real evidence. Two years ago it was conventional wisdom that no president with such an abysmal record could ever be reelected, and look what happened. The GOP has given us very little reason to be enthused about voting at all in November. I hope the opposite motivation provided by Democrats - to get rid of them - will be enough. But I´m not betting on it, yet.

‘Sexting’ To C-SPAN Caller

Rep. James Clyburn, the third-ranking House Democrat, recently told a C-SPAN caller that “sexting” is an important tool for organizing voters. Clyburn seemed to confuse basic “texting” with “sexting” — which involves sending sexual messages or photos — during a Labor Day weekend appearance on C-SPAN to promote his new memoir. Clyburn, 74, told an anguished caller that Americans concerned about the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin shootings should employ Twitter, Facebook and “sexting” to organize.

The Alaska U.S. Senate race has seen a “significant shift” in favor of Republican nominee Dan Sullivan, according to new polling data from The New York Times. Democratic freshman incumbent Mark Begich had been leading Sullivan, the state’s former attorney general and a former Bush administration official.

Since winning a hard-fought primary against a tea party challenger, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) seemed to rest on his laurels — failing to run any television advertising for the past month and returning to his home in Northern Virginia to recuperate after his victory. Now Roberts, 78, is the focus of an urgent political rescue operation led by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which is deploying a veteran strategist and others to try to bolster his foundering campaign with less than nine weeks until the November election. The moves come in response to the sudden rise of Greg Orman, a

Does anyone actually believe this? I guess Kentucky Republicans who don’t pay attention to politics but who’ll end up deciding this year’s Senate race anyway do. God bless democracy. “We’re going to pass spending bills, and they’re going to have a lot of restrictions on the activities of the bureaucracy,” McConnell said in an interview aboard his campaign bus traveling through Western Kentucky coal country. “That’s something he won’t like, but that will be done. I guarantee it.”…

The Eight Grossest Reactions
to Education Reform
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill McMorris    Original Article
Posted By: periwinkel- 8/12/2014 8:25:00 AM     Post Reply
Education reformer and former CNN host Campbell Brown has had to deal with a series of vile Twitter attack from teachers, trolls, and pornbots since launching her court challenge to teacher tenure. Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce set the tone for the debate when he posted a story headlined, “Who the Fck is Campbell Brown?” Pierce—a product of private, Catholic school—declared that her cadre of rightwing “mountebanks” and “grifters,” such as former Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs, are shilling for Wall Street. Pierce’s readers relied on public school language to voice their support for teachers unions and tenure.

Sen. Mitch McConnell´s wife, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, sits on the board of an organization that has been part of a campaign against the coal industry and against tobacco use. The anti-coal news, first reported by Yahoo News, comes as McConnell campaigns for re-election, in part by trying to tie his opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, to President Barack Obama and his so-called "war on coal." The Senate minority leader is the top recipient of coal industry campaign contributions, which total more than $179,000, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics. The senator also has

The conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal immigrants from Central America. Many of those who advocated for amnesty following the 2012 election are now complaining that people indeed came expecting that amnesty. But there is also an unbelievably bad policy at the root of the problem. (snip)It is not ironic at all that that a law intended “to combat human trafficking” has facilitated human smuggling. It is not ironic because this is precisely the outcome we should expect from immigration policy designed by multicultural elites.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition
