Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday that it was becoming clear to him that top GOP officials no longer had any interest in being a national force for conservatism – or for anything else, as far as that was concerned. He said this election had crystallized his growing suspicions about the Republican Party’s self-imagined place in American politics.
“The Republican Party is not interested in winning. It clearly is not interested in winning,” Limbaugh said. “And if you want to be even more specific than that, it is paramountly obvious that they’re not even interested in defeating the Democrats.
“It’s just mind-boggling,” he continued. “All of these years I’ve been doing this program I was under the impression the Republican Party wanted to beat Democrats. And as the years have gone by, it’s become obvious to me that that’s not their No. 1 objective.”
Limbaugh said he was disgusted to see Republicans go after their own nominee with such greedy relish.
“We have Republicans – to one degree or another – working as hard as the Democrats are to defeat Donald Trump,” Limbaugh said. “The country we know and love is being torn apart and rebuilt in ways that we don’t want, and the Republican Party doesn’t even seem to care about that. The Republican Party seems just as eager as the Democrats to pronounce their voters as extreme kooks.”
Limbaugh warned that while Republicans were warring with each other about Trump, the Democratic Party was unified in one mission: The total destruction of the GOP once and for all.
And, indeed, they seem on the verge of getting what they always wanted. You have half the Republican Party freely willing to hand the election to Hillary Clinton if it means they can wash their hands of Donald Trump and his merry band of “deplorables.” They still seem blind to the obvious: That Trump is a direct response from the voters who are sick and tired of watching Republicans lay down for Obama and the Democrats. It’s not about this policy or that one. It’s about standing up for the country in the face of unprecedented, unimaginable liberalism. And they’re simply not getting the job done.
These elected officials are not supposed to act as gods and goddesses, looking down their nose at the pathetic citizenry and telling us what’s best for our lives. They are supposed to be our representatives – our collective voice. And for eight long years – at least – it seems that only half the country has had that representation.
If the GOP goes down in flames next month, they’ll blame Trump.
Just like the Democrats are hoping.
