Rush Limbaugh: Newt Shines with the Pressure Off – The Romney/Paul Alliance

RUSH: I thought Newt was outstanding last night. Once again, Newt illustrated a point: When the pressure’s off is when you do best. And Newt’s pulled out of Michigan. Not really “pulled out,” but he’s not going to make any effort in Michigan. And Newt claims that he expects Santorum to win Michigan. So he’s pulling out.

Ron Paul… Get this, now: Ron Paul is not really competing in Michigan, but he’s running anti-Santorum ads in Michigan. Even though Ron Paul is not viable in Michigan, he’s still running anti-Santorum ads. But Newt pulling out is gonna coalesce support to Santorum, and Paul pulling out… See, I don’t know. The thing that’s interesting to me about the Paul-Romney alliance is I don’t know how the Ron Paul camp is gonna feel about that.

If this allianceis actually a purposeful strategically assembled alliance and if it has an electoral purpose here to benefit Romney, I don’t know how Ron Paul’s crowd is gonna react to that. They may love it. I don’t know how Ron Paul supporters feel about Romney. I don’t know if Romney’s their second choice or not. If they don’t like it, and if they figure out there’s this alliance, who knows? But this is gonna increase Santorum’s odds in Michigan with Gingrich putting no effort forward there. Now, I don’t think Gingrich is doing this to benefit Santorum, per se. I think Newt still wants to win this himself.

He’s positioning himself so that a poor finish cannot be talked up to a poor finish following a full-fledged, all-out effort to win. If you don’t make a big effort, if you make no effort at all in state and you don’t do well, “Well, it’s not unexpected that you wouldn’t do well.” So Michigan and Arizona are next Tuesday, and we shall see. But I thought Newt, with no pressure on him, hit Obama better than anybody did last night. (read more)

    Thanks for posting this. I missed this call because we were sitting down to lunch and I “allow” the kids and dh to talk even though Rush is on. I heard the beginning when she was trying to come up with Franklin Graham’s name and Rush was pretending to not know who she was talking about.

    Rush is right. We didn’t start this social issue nonsense. BO/BS and the DemonRats did. They know that they can’t run on their record, so they have to trot out distractions. They also have been ginning up this contraceptive nonsense because they know they have lost the abortion argument.


  2. Awesome. So we’re not imagining the Paul-Romney alliance. I was feeling a little exposed without enough tin-foil to cover my house.

    Rush just asked the same thing I asked in the other post with Levin’s audio. I just wonder what will happen if Ron Paul comes out in support of Romney in the end. I would personally be VERY disappointed if I were a Paulbot.


    • Makes you wonder how much support he could even expect from the Paulinistas after that kind of betrayal. And I think they would consider it a betrayal.

        My Paul supporter friend that I asked this of this morning thought I was ridiculous to even suggest it, but said he would vote for Paul in November anyway. There will have to be more before Paulbots believe it. They are convinced Paul is the “Savior” and can do no wrong.

    Is it just me or were Ron Paul’s eyebrow toupees askew last night?
