When Rush Limbaugh can influence a budget compromise it's a sad day in politics

Jul 23, 2011 Full story: Examiner.com 15

Are the debt ceiling negotiations being influenced by conservative talk-radio? Is our credit rating dependent on whether Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh thinks the Republicans made a deal that is "good enough"?

How does it go again...... WE THE PEOPLE...
Not, We the president.
Come on people wake up.
Talk radio is saying what,'we the people' want to hear.
The president is not saying anything we want to hear.
Now if he were to lets say reduce the size of government and take those cost savings he'd have more than enough money to do whatever he wanted to do.
Perhaps mr. president could do more than talk about increasing jobs in america.... maybe he could make a 'special' tax cut for companies that bring back manufacturing onto american soil. It would creat jobs that increases tax dollars. Why is that concept so foreign.... so difficult for democrats to grasp? Reduce government and then make a law that keeps... that forces, the number of government jobs to be a small percentage of the number of manufacturing jobs. That way we never have runaway government again. And never again higher taxes. PERIOD. I'm not purchasing anything new mr president becuse your radical views and higher taxation are prepairing me to find sanctuary somewhere else. Yea! you're one smart president alright. Good Job!
Yes, it's called sarcasim.

Not only is Conservative talk radio saying what the people want to hear...they are saying what we (the people) are saying.
The people are not parroting Conservative talk radio - Conservative talk radio is parroting the people.
Where do you think Conservative talk show hosts get their content? That's right - straight out of forums like this one...
If you read enough and post enough about and in political forums, you will begin to hear conservative talk-show hosts echoing the material in these forums - sometimes days and weeks after the content (from regular citizens) appears online.
Much of my own material has been borrowed from the biggest names - Sometimes, word for word. And I've seen others' material borrowed as well.

Rush is a great American. He's gifted at what he does to be sure.

But his show is powerful and influential primarily because he has the truth on his side. There is nothing more powerful than the truth.

The government is a parasite - They have no interest in doing anything other than draining their host until the host is dead....You are their host - the American people. It is deliberate. Wake up and smell the coffee. The Obama Pandora's box is open. 2012 is our last chance to close that box and nail it shut.

I could not agree more. Conservative talk radio is getting their content from the people. They are literally the voice of the people - and they are the only thing that stands between Obama (and the Democrat party) and the destruction of America as we have known it.

Rush DID influence the outcome here. And Rush's views are echoes of the people - his talking points came directly from the people.

You are more right than you know! Rush is the voice of America. And America wants it's country back from Obama and Pelosi and Reid.
