[W]e can’t be afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh,” said Goodwin’s fiancée, S. E. Cupp, a New York Daily News columnist and a co-host of”The Cycle”on MSNBC. “If we can get three Republicans on three different networks saying, ‘What Rush Limbaugh said is crazy and stupid and dangerous,’ maybe that’ll give other Republicans cover” to denounce the talk-show host as well.
Goodwin has a group (don’t we all) that is trying to fix what is broke in the GOP. Goodwin’s group is asking young people, who voted for Obama, what they think about Republicans. Naturally, Goodwin would ask people who he thinks can be persuaded to vote Republican, to give their views about Republicans without considering once that those people don’t know much if they already voted Obama.
So, Goodwin’s fiance tries to help, by smearing the one guy who reaches more people and REFLECTS and STRENGTHENS their own views on life, natural common sense, and history.
Cupp doesn’t say what she means when she points to Rush Limbaugh’s comments, she just simply gives cover for denigrating him. By the way, does Cupp have any children? I don’t think so. I have two teenagers, and many conservatives who listen to Rush have ‘Rush babies’, kids who have been listening to Rush for years along with their parents. In fact, teenagers only glean a little about life in general, as they are quite self-centered (we all were) and they also speak their mind without being asked.
Where Cupp goes wrong is that she is trolling for something Rush may say, usually taken out of context, and spread out on media platforms that are populated with gleeful conservative-haters. Point that out to a youngster, and they will see the injustice of it, since they already say exactly what they think, usually at inopportune times.
No, this a major foul for Cupp. Big time. Rush is part of our lives, and Cupp would have him thrown to the wolves to somehow ingratiate liberal know-nothings to the Republican party. No thanks.
What she should be doing is educating herself and her peers about the founding of this country, the spirit of America, and how our children are the greatest resource of hope for our future. The kids can save their future if only they know the truth. And Goodwin should have responded to the group of know-nothings, that if they just turn on the radio once in a while, they might learn something.
You don’t grow the party by changing it into whatever the youngsters think it should be, because they aren’t seeing it the way it really is. There is no truth in what the twenty-somethings thought the GOP was, how can you suggest the GOP change when you don’t even educate people on what it stands for?
Should there be a new term for self-loathing Republicans now?
