Rush Limbaugh is one of those people that I have listened to about as long as he has been a person that folks would be aware of.
Growing up where I did, you didn’t have that many radio stations especially if you were driving in some of the more remote places and you would find yourself listening to his show a lot because it was the only thing that was out there.
You ended up learning more on those car rides than you probably could have with just about any other thing that you could possibly digest from the media.
Rush Limbaugh is getting impatient with Trump’s lawyers and others who are delving into possible voter fraud in the November election. As he says, they have promised bombshells but so far they have only dropped water balloons.
Actually, the Trump lawyers are fighting their case as a constitutional one and that only requires the preponderance of the evidence.
Simply put, the preponderance of the evidence means more likely than not. The burden of proof is much less than that needed for a criminal case. Lin Wood and Sidney Powell are pursuing a criminal investigation, which requires evidence beyond a shadow of a doubt. That is a much harder case to prove.
“You call a gigantic press conference like that, one that lasts an hour. And you announce massive bombshells, then you better have some bombshells, there better be something at that press conference other than what we got.”
“But you don’t — you can’t — I talked to so many people who were blown away by it, by the very nature of the press conference. They promised blockbuster stuff, and then nothing happened. And that’s just, that’s not — well, it’s not good.
If you’re going to promise blockbuster stuff like that, then there has — now, I understand. Look, I’m the one that’s been telling everybody, this stuff doesn’t happen at warp speed, light speed, the way cases are made for presentation in court.
But if you’re going to do a press conference like that, with the promise of blockbusters, then — then there has to be something more than what that press conference delivered.”
I can understand Limbaugh’s impatience but often you don’t want to tip you hand before you are in the presence of a judge. Do not give you opponents time to come up with a spin campaign. It is a matter of strategy. They are trying to win in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion.
