Stocks Plunge on Limbaugh Pullout

In the fight over Rush Limbaugh’s recent remarks, who is really getting hurt? A number of advertisers have pulled out of Rush Limbaugh’s show in order to teach him a lesson about watching what he says on the air. As the charts below show, they are the ones who are getting a lesson.

Carbonite has been particularly outspoken against Limbaugh, and their stock price has dropped over 10% since they pulled their ads from his show. Several other sponsors have also done so. Of the publicly traded companies that have pulled out, there is a similar pattern; Carbonite, AOL, Citrix, and Select Comfort have all seen serious price drops in the last two days since last friday. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Carbonite dropped from about $9.40 to $8.40:

AOL dropped from about $17.80 to $17.00:

Citrix dropped from about $75.50 to $71.80:

Select Comfort dropped from about $30.00 to $28.80:

A Catalogue of Mitt Romney’s Flip-Flops

Mitt Romney’s flips-flops are legendary. Thoroughout the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, various groups have made numerous videos of Mitt Romney’s flip-flops. The actual number of flip-flops is difficult to count because he has flip-flopped on so many issues. However, I thought that I might take a stab at compiling all of the Mitt Romney flip-flop videos that I could find, just to see how many there are.

This first video comes to us courtesy of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and provides a glimpse of what we are likely to see in the fall 2012 campaign, if Mitt Romney wins the republican nomination. The video contains flip-flops on the stimulus, abortion, Reagan, Obamacare, hiring illegal immigrants, manmade global warming, the Ohio union proposal, the no new taxes pledge, the assault weapons ban, TARP, and the auto industry bailout. More links will be added here as I post more videos: Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12, Part 13, Part 14, Part 15, Part 16, Part 17, Part 18, Part 19, Part 20, Part 21, Part 22, Part 23, Part 24, Part 25, Part 26, Page 27, Page 28, Page 29, Part 30, Part 31, Part 32, Part 33, Part 34, Part 35, Part 36, Part 37, Part 38, more to come . . .

Mitt Romney’s Flip-Flops Part 26

I no sooner remarked in the last post that Mitt Romney had hidden behind the blind trust remark last night and that the DNC would be out with a new video, when I came across this video from yesterday that notes that Romney was using the blind trust lie again. This DNC video, entiltled “Mitt vs. The Truth,” points out Mitt Romney’s flip-flops on several issues that came up in last night’s Florida debate: blind trusts, lowering taxes, and his attack ad on Newt Gingrich.

Mitt Romney’s Flip-Flops Part 23

This video was cut from a 2012 New Hampshire debate. Newt Gingrich asks Mitt Romney to come clean about the ads that are being run by a superPAC that supports him. Mitt Romney’s flip-flop takes just 14 seconds, and he goes from saying that he hadn’t seen the ads to saying “the ad I saw . . .” and then fully describing an attack ad in great detail. Click to go back to the beginning.
