Rush glimpses Romney’s conservative core

The biggest story of the day  that no one is covering occurred in the closing few minutes of today’s Rush Limbaugh program.

El Rushbo says Romney has a Polkian-conservative core:

RUSH:  Folks, I must be honest with you.  I hear this all the time from people about Romney, and I know him and I’ve talked to him.  He came here and he sat down and he told me what his plan was, and it sounded like anything you and I would say. He even said to me, “If I accomplish everything I want to do, I may only be a one-term president.”  I said, “What do you mean?”  “Because I am gonna so fix this. It’s gonna be dramatic. We’ve gotta reverse this. We gotta stop this. Our children’s future is at stake here, and I’m gonna stop the direction that we’re headed, and if they throw me out after four years, fine and dandy.”  And from right here in this studio he left to go to a huge fundraiser here in Palm Beach.  First traffic jam I have ever been in since I lived here trying to get home. (interruption) No, I don’t go to fundraisers. Of course I wasn’t invited. I don’t go to those things.

But anyway, what she just said, no core, I can’t tell you how many people I hear this from.  And it surprises me a little.  There’s gotta be some core there.  There has to be some core.  But there is a tremendous amount of, what is it, suspicion, distrust.  And I know why.  Back in 2006, (imitating Romney) “Oh, no, I’m not really conservative. Yeah, I had to vote for Paul Tsongas, a Democrat, there weren’t any Republicans on the ballot.”  Then there’s Romneycare and all that.  I think the note I read from my friend really sums it up.  The Tea Party did all the heavy lifting.  The Tea Party actually presented this opportunity.  I think some of the anger at Romney is actually anger at the Republican establishment itself.  Maybe I’ll develop that, talk further about that next week.

President James K. Polk (D-TN) made America’s  sea-to-shining-sea destiny, manifest. Remember 54’40” or Fight, the Alamo and that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C. native promised one term, delivered on his promises and chose not to run.

Mitt Romney can be trusted to do us right. I have always seen the character that will do what he says he will do. It seems Rush has glimpsed a man we can trust as well.

  1. At this point, all I can say is I certainly hope so. Rush saying this will begin to have some impact on the conservative base. I trust Rush, though I haven’t felt very trusty of Romney. But I am now resigned to Romney getting the nod, and then it is up to us, We the People, to make sure he starts dismantling the socialist state. Even as a businessman, he must see the unsustainability of the welfare state. Whether he understands the tyranny and threat to individual liberty and the foundation of this nation – that’s unknown at this time.

    Thanks for catching Rush’s closing today, GC. I had turned him off after getting depressed listening to his first hour discussing the lefties speculation about the possible ruling from the SC on Obamacare.

  2. I missed this also, so many thanks Mike! Maha Rushie may step in it once in a great while, but he and I are usually eye-to-eye where it matters. In his own unique, read-between-the-lines manner, this is tantamount to an endorsement. And for a more substantial reason than–anybody but Obama. As for a one and out term, I don’t remember Romney promising it, but if he’s sincere about doing what needs to be done, and being OK with no second term because of it, we may have a winner on our hands after all. If so, a second term will take care of itself. But first, we have to empty the garbage from the Executive Branch, tear it out by the roots, if I may metaphor mix a bit here. Great catch & dispatch!
