Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said that judging by developments in the fight over DHS funding “you would have thought that there wasn’t an election last November, and then you would have thought that the election that was last November was not won in a landslide by Republicans” on Wednesday.
“You would have thought that there wasn’t an election last November, and then you would have thought that the election that was last November was not won in a landslide by Republicans. If you just landed here from Mars and were looking at politics in Washington, you would have assumed that maybe there isn’t a Republican Party, when in fact the Republican Party won a landslide last November. But you can’t discern that from anything happening in Washington” he stated.
Rush continued, “the Republicans are caving on amnesty. They’re caving on the whole Department of Homeland Security thing, which is a separate thing from amnesty in part, and they’re all ready to cave on net neutrality. They’re caving on everything. The excuse that we’re given is, in an indirect way, ‘well, this is what the donors want.’ And to a certain extent that’s true, but come on. Is the donor class of the Republican Party actually attempting to achieve the erasure of the Republican Party?”
“It just doesn’t appear that we have any opposition to the Democrat Party in Washington. We got plenty opposition to the Democrat Party out in the states, and among some of our presidential contenders, but even some of those, you ask yourself, why are they running as Republicans? I don’t have to name names. Everybody knows who I’m talking about. So let’s just get to this” Rush added.
Rush concluded by talking about Harry Reid’s reaction to Mitch McConnell’s willingness to pass a DHS funding bill that did not impact funding for the president’s executive action, saying, “this is incredible! The people that lost the election — now, they still have the White House, I understand that. But we have three separate coequal branches here, and one of them is just caving. The legislative branch is just caving.”
