Rush Limbaugh Picks a Fight With Fellow Republicans

Earlier this week, Rush Limbaugh taunted the Republican leadership, contending that President Obama had more to fear from Rush, than from them. In an interview with Politico, Congressman Tom Price, who leads the Republican Study Committee, came back with some tough words for Rush:

It’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.

Despite the back and forth between Republican hot shots, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell believes that one big-named Republican's absence from the national stage will help the party in 2010. McConnell said yesterday: "We wish the president, President Bush well, but, frankly, we will not have to be carrying that sort of political burden that we carried the last two elections."

Do you think shunning Rush could help the GOP make the comeback, or is he crucial to the party's success?

"Bush was attacked from the day after the election."Maybe that had something to do with the whole recount issue? He was lying from day one.

I used to listen to him, And Beck and Tony Snow, and I still Like Beck, but Rush's way of talking got on my nerves, not what he was saying...but how...

I think plenty of us <b>have</b> listened to his show, and formed our opinions on his lunatic hatefulness based on that.

I'm going to step into this river of hatred and state that I actually like Rush Limbaugh. I work 8-5, so I don't get to listen as often as I'd like, but he makes some really good points, if you'd care to look beyond the reports ABOUT him and read what he actually says.

Since the statement isn't true, yes.

"Not to offend anyone but maybe it just seems like the media leans left because Bush was such a bad president that there was a lot to criticize"Actually, Clinton got a major pass while he was in office, and Bush was attacked from the day after the election.Case in point, the November 8th Lax Trib headline was "Bush stole election with brother Jeb's help."

The Democrats don't have anything like a Limbaugh.

Limbaugh and Hannity are really a phenomenon. They have influence. Regular folks quote them.

Any time, Steph! Since you seemed to have missed parts of the convo; I'm glad I could be here to help.

Thanks for the recap Lilk. Don't know what I'd do without you.

Actually, Steph, haus was not the first person to nudge the discussion away from the original topic. Additionally, others did talk about bias without presenting evidence, whether that was the original subject of the article or not. Nice try, though. Thanks for your input!

I don't why we are attacking each other here. Really! I personally do think that Rush Limbaugh only cares about himself. He knows some of the crap he says will creates controversy. And controversy is good for his bank account.

Because Lilk, the thread isn't about the study, or media bias. Those were Haus' issues. But thanks very much for your input.

The media is biased. Rush Limbaugh is..as I quote from another poster a 'crackpot.' I don't listen to him, but I know some who do, and they say that he's like that, but not all the time. He has his few good moments (according to some of his listeners, that is).
