Look people, I know this won’t happen but it sure is fun and somehow comforting to dream about.


Cheney, Limbaugh in 2012?

Many conservatives believe that Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh have all the answers to solve our nation’s problems. Could that team head the GOP banner in 2012?

“If I had to choose in terms of being a Republican, I’d go with Rush Limbaugh,” said Cheney on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

This led to immediate speculation that Cheney and Limbaugh intend to run as a ticket in the 2012 election. Limbaugh, on his weekday radio show, often calls Barack Obama “a man-child president who is immature, inexperienced, and over his head.”

A Cheney-Limbaugh ticket would be a conservative’s dream, said conservative analyst Mary Matalin, but she said, “I don’t believe Cheney will run for president, nor will Limbaugh.”

As for Limbaugh’s daily criticism of Obama, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said, “It’s a surreal day when you’re getting lectures from Rush Limbaugh. He (Limbaugh) is an entertainer.”

The White House has suggested that Limbaugh and some other far-right political personalities have grabbed control of the Republican Party. Limbaugh has openly vowed to do what he can to ensure that Obama’s presidency is a failure.

“I don’t know how good a Cheney-Limbaugh ticket would truly be or how happy I’d be with them over the long term. However, I’d take them in a heartbeat, from a national security perspective, over that fraud in the White House. Man, would I like to have a recall election (a la Gov. Grey Davis in California) right about now,” said one conservative talk show radio caller.

Limbaugh and Sean Hannity remain way ahead of the field in their two-horse race for the most conservative talk-radio listeners, according to the trade magazine “Talkers.” Limbaugh has a minimum of 14.75 million listeners who tune in at least once a week. Hannity is second with a minimum of 13.75 million.

Our Hintgen family prefers to listen to Minnesota Public Radio, for which we are contributing members.

Limbaugh said he loves being a conservative, adding, “We believe in individual liberty, limited government, capitalism, the rule of law, faith, a color-blind society and national security.”

He said true conservatives also support school choice, enterprise zones, tax cuts, welfare reform, faith-based initiatives, political speech, homeowner rights and the War on Terrorism.

“And at our core, said Limbaugh, “we embrace and celebrate the most magnificent governing document ever ratified by any nation — the U.S. Constitution. Along with the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes our God-given natural right to be free, it’s the foundation on which our government is built and has enabled us to flourish as a people.”

Limbaugh asserts that African-Americans, in contrast with other minority groups, are “left behind” socially because they’ve been systematically trained from a young age to hate America through a widespread movement headed by figures such as Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, and Obama.

Many people believe that Limbaugh not only has no compassion for those in need, but that he’s also mean-spirited.

During the Clinton administration, while filming his television program, Limbaugh referred to media coverage of Socks, the Clintons’ cat. He then said, “Did you know there’s a White House dog?” and held up to the camera a picture of then-teenaged Chelsea Clinton.

Responding to the ensuing criticism, Limbaugh claimed he was handed the photo by mistake. Later, he mocked the shortness of U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert B. Reich who’s about 5 feet tall.

Democrats say that Limbaugh uses his platform to become national precinct chairman for the Republican party. Right or wrong, millions of Americans love Limbaugh, and he earns millions of dollars each year through conservative talk radio.

Would Cheney and Limbaugh, if elected, tap Sarah Palin for a Cabinet post?

Why in the name of Cthulhu would Tommy Boy think that the reader would possibly care that his Hintgen family listens to Mostly Pinko Radio? Or contributes to it?
I see he also uses the lazy propagandist’s trick of “cloaking” his opinions using the null phrase “Many people believe…”. Many people believe Hopey McChange is a Marxist. So what?
