One Guy Can Make a Difference
We just need to send that one person some support.
Check it out:
Can you imagine the difference? Can you imagine? If we had five or ten Ted Cruzes, we’d win a lot of debates. If we had 45 Ted Cruzes in the Senate, we’d come close to winning every vote — and that’s what everybody outside the Beltway sees — and I’m telling you, particularly the Republicans insides the Beltway do not. They look at Cruz, and they’re embarrassed, and they hope nobody thinks that they like Cruz — and I’m talking about the inside-the-Beltway, conservative media types.
It’s almost like Palin. “Oh, God, don’t know associate me with her! Don’t think I like Palin. No, no. I agree with you. Palin’s an absolute ditz! I agree with you. Cruz is a lunatic. I agree with you. Cruz is insane. I agree with you. Cruz is the downfall of America.” This is what they all say to each other, and they believe it. But what do we see? We see something totally different. The Republican establishment tells us that they don’t go to the media and make their case because the media won’t cover them.
Common excuse that I hear. “Well, Rush, we could call press conference every day. They’re not gonna cover it — or if they do, they’re just gonna distort it, misrepresent it, and lie about it.” Well, I’ve always said, “Reagan was able to get past ’em,” and so was Ted Cruz — and Ted Cruz, by the way, got covered by the way, media. Now, I imagine if I said this to an inside-the-Beltway conservative, “Yeah, he got covered by being a kook! Yeah, he got covered because the media saw an opportunity to destroy the Republican Party brand with him.
“Of course Cruz can get covered, but we smart people can’t. We substantive people can’t. But, sure, the media will cover every Republican kook that comes along.” That’s not how we see it. We see it entirely differently. We see how one guy — unflappable, courageous — standing up against that machine can in fact stop it. We also learned it’s gonna take more than one. We can’t do it all with one.
