    If it had just been Rush, then it would just been another of his silly comments. However, when you have Republicans like RNC Chair Michael Steele and Gov.Jindal stepping forward to publicly support Rush, then Rush's comments are taken more seriously. I suspect ads will show Rush's more outrageous comments and ask if all Republicans agree with Rush.

    Democrats will try to use those remarks against Republicans; most likely they'll laugh as they do, since everything indicates that Obama is more or less on the right track.

    Republican successes in 2010 and beyond will be directly related to how far ordinary members of the party can distance themselves from Rush L.

    Are there 2 GOP's now, because last time I checked the Honorable Mister Steel is in charge of the Republicans.

    The election or reelection of Barack Obama depends on the economy of the USA~~affordable housing for the masses~~the international relations

    the endless wars on terrorism~~and the general malaise of the American

    people

    It is too soon to think of who is going to say what~~the issue is if Obama

    can do what he claims he can do for this country.

    Ahhhhh so now its OK to use a non-related persons comments and attribute some sweeping ideological camaraderie?

    We weren't "allowed" to consider Rev Right's hate filled racist bull **** despite Obama's 20 + years front row center......but now a radio personality is supposed to represent the thoughts and beliefs of unnamed politicians in the future?

    Wow...just wow.

    No, the midterm will be a concern for the Democrats, and those results will determine 2012.

    Rush is not part of the GOP. If you ever listened to him, and understood what he meant, you would know that. Since you don't, your question is invalid.

    I don't understand why anyone would listen to or examine anything Rush says.
