On This Week with George Stephanopolis, Eric Cantor (R-VA) said (and the exact quote is) “No Republicans and No Democrats want the President to Fail”. Well, it may be true of Democrats, nobody kmows for sure. But it certainly is an out and out LIE when talking about Republicans.
Yesterday’s key note speaker at C-PAC was Lush Windbag (sorry I mean Rush Limbaugh, I just can’t help myself). C-PAC is the annual convention of Conservative Political Action Committees. These are the Republicans. More clearly these are the Republicans who cook up innacurate media releases, invent the Republican talking points, and produce political attack ads). With no real leader in the Republican party, Limbaugh has taken it upon himself, with a lot of help from the right wing who is too busy spinning out of control, and is so out of touch with America, they can’t find someone, anyone, to lead the Republican Party.
How the hell did a lying, manipulative, fear-mongering, radio talk show host (also known in English as a Comedian) become the leader of the Republican Party. I don’t know, do you? Is that really the best they can come up with? Well, they tried Bobby Jindal and we all know how that worked out earlier this week. On Tuesday, in a response to Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress, he told a story which was an out and out lie. I guess we should have known since he told the story as if he were reading a fairy tale during story hour at the local children’s library.
Back to Windbag, he blatantly said on his radio show, and has repeated it several time, that he wants President Obama to fail. He doesn’t deny saying it. So how can Eric Cantor say that no Republicans want the President to fail when the de facto leader of the Republican Party said so, and doesn’t deny saying it. In fact, Limbaugh continues to say it.
It is truly said so see the Republican party reduced to nothing more than a fringe political group in America. The Republicans are the party of Abraham Lincoln; the first Republican every elected to the Presidency. And now we have Rush Limbaugh as the person carrying the torch, more like a torch wielding villager than poetic symbolism, as the new Republican idol. Hmm. Republic Idol, that would be an awesome reality show. I’d like to be a judge.
