Limbaugh urges Republicans to back Clinton
NEW YORK, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Conservative talk-radio
icon Rush Limbaugh is urging Republicans in Ohio and
Texas to vote for Hillary Clinton in their states'
March 4 primary.
Newsmax reported Thursday that Limbaugh has urged his
listeners to "pimp themselves" by voting for the New
"I understand I've got a big challenge here to try to
get Republicans to change their minds on this and vote
for Hillary to keep her in the race, to keep that
party at war with itself," Limbaugh told listeners
"It's clear that Republicans in Texas have been
listening to this program where we have advised
Republicans to pimp themselves for a day and go vote
in the (Democratic) primary ... I just think, at this
stage, the longer Hillary can stay in this, the better
for us," he was quoted by Newsmax as saying.
Limbaugh said if Clinton and her Democratic rival,
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, continue battling for
their party's nomination, Democrats will not focus on
Arizona Sen. John McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee.
"If Hillary loses this thing, all of that's going to
come to a screeching halt," Limbaugh said. "We want
all the disruption in that party as possible. It's
about us winning."
- The future generations will look back and see that Ron Paul was right
on everything, from foreign policy to monetary policy. It's so sad
that truth tellers don't win elections, they are always mocked and
laughed at and then dismissed.
Ron Paul's campaign slogan: We're BROKE.

I don't agree with his stance on many issues also, but on the most
important issues -- foreign policy, the Iraq war and the war on
terror, fiscal and monetary policies... The ever-weakening of the
dollar is indicating that the country is becoming insolvent, the other
dozen issues are irrelevant should a financial collapse occurs, and it
seems increasingly likely by now.
