If you’ve been around long enough to remember the Reagan years, it wasn’t just necessarily the Democrat Party who hated Ronald Reagan — it was what was referred to as the “Rockefeller Republicans,” now referred to as RINOs (Republicans-In-Name-Only) — the GOP establishment — who hated Reagan even more.
On Wednesday, the day of the third GOP presidential debate, talk show legend and one of the most influential conservative voices in America, Rush Limbaugh, told his vast radio audience that there’s another Republican presidential candidate who the GOP leadership despises in the same manner.
In fact, Rush claims that the cronies in the GOP would be happier with — get this — Hillary Clinton, because Hillary would protect the big government, big spending ways that the cronies in both parties benefit from, all at the expense of the American taxpayer.
Rush Limbaugh spent much of his three hours on Wednesday utterly thrashing the newly negotiated bloated budget deal negotiated by John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Obama, including referring to the budget deal as “Obama’s 9th year,” because the Republicans were stupid enough to give Obama a two-year budget, which would therefore seep one year into the next president’s term — even if it’s a Republican president.
Rush said that the Republican Party stupidly — because of the budget deal — had surrendered half of any of the GOP candidate’s “campaign arsenal,” because they can now not campaign on reducing (or ending) deficit spending when the Republicans themselves agreed to do more of it.
“So how does the budget deal pave the way for Hillary Clinton? Folks, it’s real simple. Over half of any Republican candidate’s campaign arsenal has just been neutered. The Republican Party cannot campaign by running around blaming the Democrats for destroying budget, for overspending, for threatening the very fabric economically of the country. They can’t do it. This is the Republican budget deal that Barack Obama cannot wait to sign.”
Earlier this month, Limbaugh was asked by a caller which candidate was the “most anti-liberal,” and his answer was clear and without hesitation.
“There’s one clear answer. Put your hand up if you know who it is,” the most powerful conservative voice in the country told his vast audience. “Ted Cruz — Ted Cruz is the answer to your question,” he stated.
Mark Levin made similar comments about Cruz around the same time, saying, “Ted Cruz is the most consistently conservative candidate running.”
Ted Cruz strongly condemned the Obama-Boehner budget deal on Tuesday in a statement, calling it a “golden parachute victory for the Washington Cartel.”
Amazingly, the Washington Post on Tuesday said that, “FACT: Ted Cruz is running the best campaign of any presidential candidate.”
Not the type of thing you’d normally expect from a leftist publication, would you say?
