From a reader with a lovely sister in Atlanta:
Another little tidbit from Rush’s show today in response to a caller in Salem, Oregon:
(CALLER: What characteristics will you look for in a Republican that would convince you that, when elected president, they will follow through on our conservative values?
RUSH: The first thing I’m looking for is fearlessness, conviction, someone unafraid to express the core beliefs, a willingness to teach, an enthusiasm to convert. Somebody that’s not concerned with media attention, will welcome the media’s attention as an obvious opportunity to expand the number of people who understand what he believes. Somebody that’s optimistic. Somebody who believes in the country. Somebody who is unafraid of talking about the greatness of the country and is unafraid of talking about what the risks are that we face with four more years of this guy.
I’ve already got the campaign slogan: “We can’t afford four more years of Barack Obama!” That’s it, and then people say, “Why?” and I’m off to the races with my reasons, and I got an hour’s worth of reasons with an entertaining speech of why — informative, and so forth. That person has to be out there. There has to be somebody out there that can do that)
Here is the actual link.
Thanks to Matt, who sent this in to me. We both agree that Rush just described Gov. Romney perfectly!
