RUSH: I got an e-mail this morning, "Could you tell me why you are endorsing Rubio?"  I said, "I'm not endorsing Rubio.  I haven't endorsed anybody.  I haven't endorsed Trump, I haven't endorsed Cruz, I haven't endorsed anybody."  "Well, okay, why are you...?" Is it really that complicated, folks? What I happen to be supporting is: When people say something that I think needs to be said, I'm going to amplify it.  To me, all of this is about ideas, and it certainly matters who wins.  And it certainly matters the ideas that they have.  Now, if Rubio is out saying what nobody else in the party other than Ted Cruz, will say, then I'm not gonna condemn him for saying it. I don't care how many times he says it.  I don't care if he looked robotic when he said it. 

RUSH: I don't know anybody else who would try to turn this around the way Trump did.  And it's just... I don't know what else you call it, performer's instinct or what.  He clearly has it, whether you think that's a disqualifier or a serious presidential candidate or not.

RUSH: There's no gleam, there is no electricity, there's no charisma, there's hardly any life. The guy's hoarse. He can barely talk.  The only time he came alive was when Chelsea started talking about it, and that wasn't very much.  He just doesn't look to be very with it, folks. It's very... This is bad, folks.  We want great health for Bill Clinton.  We want Bill Clinton in just fabulously great health for the rest of the year and beyond.  We do not want Bill Clinton get sick. We pray for the great health of Bill Clinton.

RUSH: All three of these guys try to make themselves look like the biggest squish moderates you have ever seen.  They're certainly trying to make themselves not look like they are Republicans.  And that's what annoys me.  They're in a Republican primary, and rather than stand up and try to sell and try to promote the whole concept of the necessary steps we need to take to reverse the trends in this country, to save this country, to stop the direction we're going, instead what do they do?  They pander... And this is why, you know, say what you want about Ted Cruz, but Mr. Ted Cruz would never engage in this kind of watering down his beliefs.

RUSH: There's not a single Republican in this field who would, by virtue of inexperience, make the mistakes Obama is making, because Obama is not making mistakes.  Obama has an agenda. I think the real important question here to ask and answer is why won't anybody but Rubio and Cruz say it? I think when you start making fun of Rubio for repeating that Obama's doing it on purpose, you don't understand how important that is to the Republican base, which is what this primary is all about.  It's fundamental.  And by the same token, defining conservatism, being able to, is fundamental.  It's what this is all about.  And if you can't do it, if your definition of conservatism is ignorant or wrong, I guarantee you you're gonna pay for it when it comes time to vote. 

RUSH: There are a number of people in the country worried about where we're heading culturally and socially, and I think there are subconscious reasons people are happy for various and certain outcomes.  They may not even realize it until somebody like me comes along and reminds them, and they're probably saying, "Yeah, yeah. Right on, dude. That's exactly right. That's exactly how I'm feeling.  I just didn't know it 'til you came along, just like it was when you came along in 1988."
