Rush Limbaugh :“Forget this Vaccine Business. This is Ending Up Being a Giant Distraction” ~ Exactly Rush Is Right!

The Daily Caller

“Alright, Perry goofed up by using an executive order on the Gardasil,” Limbaugh said. “There’s no question he goofed up on it instead of taking it to the Texas legislature. He’s admitted that over and over again. I think one of the reasons that Perry gets tired is that he had all the questions. He had to answer a question three or four times last night and he did it smiling.”

However, Limbaugh cautioned the candidates not to use that against Perry, particularly because there was an opt-out provision in his executive order. Bachmann, he said, may have taken her attack a little too far.

“There was an opt-out,” Limbaugh explained. “If anybody didn’t want to take it they didn’t have to… So next time I’m going to have to issue another warning. Next time – not only don’t bother with this Social Security ‘Ponzi scheme’ stuff, but forget this vaccine business. This is ending up being a giant distraction. Now I said that [Michele] Bachmann may have jumped the shark. It’s just a gut a feeling.”

Limbaugh said Bachmann should have taken her victory in last night’s debate on the Gardasil issue and left it alone after that.

“Alright, now she had scored the points in the debate,” he said. “But now this comment has become a news item for Bachmann today, rather than what she said at the debate last night. That’s what I mean by ‘jumping the shark.’ She scored the points and should have left it there.”


Wild Thing's comment.....

I agree with Rush, Bachmann made her point, now back off and get ono to the next thing.

You all are right about this as well, there are so many things that need to be talked about and the border etc. as well and details of what would be done about it by each of the candidates.

My guess is that Bachmann shot herself in the foot by pressing the Gardasil issue. I also think that she will stay in the race even though she has minimal support. She is desperate.

This is one good woman and a true patriot.

She should have used more discretion.

In her position as a candidate for high office you don't turn around and parrot something that a mother came up to you to say about Gardasil causing mental retardation without first verifying the correlation.

She needs first to admit this mistake and then move on, otherwise she herself becomes the issue she brought upon herself.

Sadly, this is a bad call on her part, poor judgement, and not the first time.

Michele Bachman is still one good woman and a true patriot.

One thing I like about Newt is how he well sees these meandering distractions.

Lucid, quick on his feet, and with wit, he correctly reminds everyone how they are all completely united in defeating this president's reelection, and while others just talk and whine about a left leaning press corps, Newt is defiant, confronts them straight on, and takes it to them.
