I agree he should run -- I'd love to see his past actions examined to the depth of Obama's and other Presidential candidates.
I fully support a draft Rush movement.
Why don't your attempt to get the ball rolling by posting about it on Yahoo message boards? The Tea PArty should get serious and run their own candidate, and Rush would be a perfect choice, particularly if he chose Palin as his VP.
CDC Official Dismisses Claim That Undocumented Immigrants Bring Measles Into The U.S.

Despite claims to the contrary from some of the loudest anti-immigration reform voices in the Republican Party, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stressed on Monday that undocumented immigrants are not bringing measles into the United States.
Dr. Anne Schuchat, director for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, dismissed claims tying undocumented immigrants to the recent measles outbreak that has afflicted individual communities and sparked a broader national debate about vaccination policy.
“We don’t have evidence to support that,” Schuchat said during a webinar hosted by the National Press Foundation.
Though there are an estimated 20 million measles cases worldwide every year, only a handful ever reach the U.S., according to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Most of the measles cases that do arrive have origins outside the U.S., and are usually carried by Americans returning from trips abroad.
Representatives from the CDC said that they don't need to know an outbreak's exact point of origin to know where the disease came from and how it may have reached the U.S.
"Just because we don't know patient zero doesn't mean we don't know the strain," CDC spokeswoman Amy Rowland said. The CDC regularly monitors different diseases and strains to track where they originate.
In her presentation, Schuchat said that in the Disneyland case, it's quite likely that the congressman had it backwards.
“In fact, this outbreak associated with the Disneyland Park? The U.S. exported [the] measles virus to Mexico,” Schuchat said.
