When it rains, it pours.
It truly does.
The unfolding of the Republican Party is like watching a movie with your popcorn.
First, Rahm Emanuel, Chief of Staff to President Obama calls out Rush Limbaugh as the Leader of the Republican Party and honors him.
Then we have Steele on CNNs D.L. Hughley's Show stating that Rush Limbaugh is not the head of the Republican Party. That Steele is the de-facto leader of the Republican Party.
Rush Limbaugh closes out CPAC with a scurrilous speech, truly nasty verbal viagra.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs challenges Congressional Republicans, if they agree with Limbaugh in wanting this country to fail?
King Rush then hits Steele and puts him in his place, which made him run like a dog with his tail between his legs, following the King to apologize.
Now Governor Kaine, DNC Chairman comes swinging:
“I was briefly encouraged by the courageous comments made my counterpart in the Republican Party over the weekend challenging Rush Limbaugh as the leader of the Republican Party and referring to his show as ‘incendiary’ and ‘ugly.’ However, Chairman Steele’s reversal this evening and his apology to Limbaugh proves the unfortunate point that Limbaugh is the leading force behind the Republican Party, its politics and its obstruction of President Obama’s agenda in Washington. Just this weekend, Rush Limbaugh repeated his claim that he is rooting for the President to fail. The last time Rush Limbaugh said he wanted the President to fail, virtually every single Republican in Congress followed his lead and voted against the President’s plan to create or save 3.5 million jobs.
“As Congress works to pass the President’s budget, Republicans need to stop following divisive figures like Rush Limbaugh, stop apologizing to him and put aside the failed politics of the past so we can put our economy back on track, reform our health care system, break our dependence on foreign oil, improve our schools, and lay the foundation for long-term growth in the 21st Century.”
People are turning away and tuning OUT on this Rush Limbaugh crap. Folks don't want this country to fail. The failure of the United States of America is the failure of each and everyone of us. Rush Limbaugh makes roughly 38M a year, he is the last person to be talking about failure for anyone. Unless you are rolling in the Limbaugh dough, then hey, you are on the same page as him, but most of America is not. We need Obama to succeed, too many folks are unemployed, no health insurance, families in dire straits, all folks life savings lost on the stock market. We need this president to succeed and King Rush to just go away.
