Limbaugh: “GOP Irrelevant”

It’s good to see the nation’s leading talk show host FINALLY recognize what we here at ‘Nox & Friends have been saying practically forever.

“The GOP is Irrelevant”

From World Net Daily:

Rush Limbaugh, the leading conservative voice in America, is scorching the Republican Party as an irrelevant disaster which has apparently made a decision “not to exist.”

“I was trying to think earlier today if ever in my life I could remember any major political party being so irrelevant,” the top-rated radio host said Wednesday on his national broadcast.

“I have never seen it. I have never seen a major political party simply occupy placeholders as the Republican Party is doing. There hasn’t been any opposition [to Democrats], not any serious opposition.”

Limbaugh was non-stop in his criticism of the GOP during his opening monologue, continuing, “I was thinking about this last night, too, while I was pondering if I could ever remember a greater political disaster in my lifetime, if I could ever remember a time when a political party just made a decision not to exist, for all intents and purposes.”

The radio star said the Republican Party now can’t wait to move on granting amnesty to illegal aliens.

“There’ll be a fast move in Republican circles to push comprehensive immigration reform [and] go all in now,” he explained.

“I can’t tell you what the Republicans think they’re going to achieve except this: I really do believe that some of this is oriented toward driving the conservatives out of the party. I really think some of this is oriented toward the Republicans actually seeking to get rid of their conservative base. And even if it takes 15 years in the wilderness to rebuild a new base of people who don’t embarrass them, and people who are of the right temperament, maybe that’s what they’re willing to do.”

He opined there’s a prevailing belief among the Republican establishment that in order to win future elections, “All they gotta do is throw away their base. That’s Christmas morning for them.”

Limbaugh indicated Republicans have been “hoodwinked” for two main reasons.

“They are literally paralyzed because Obama is African-American,” he said.

“Before that happened, the Democrats and the media ran one of the most brilliant political tricks I have ever seen pulled off. That political trick convinced Republicans and more importantly their ‘brilliant’ moderate consultants that criticizing any Democrat president would anger the independents.”

“So the Republicans got hooked into this belief that any criticism would send the independents running to the mild-mannered, never-critical, never-extreme, never-loud, never-arguing, never-bickering Democrats. …

“There was no behavior the Democrats could engage in that would send the independents running to Republicans. The Democrats can call Republicans hostage-takers, they can accuse them of taking a ransom, they can accuse them of being terrorists, and that doesn’t bother the independents. But when the Republicans question Obama’s Obamacare plan, [the reaction is] ‘You racist pigs! How dare you?’”

The political trick, Limbaugh explained, actually got members of the GOP to keep their mouths shut on opposing the Democrats’ agenda.

“They have bought hook line and sinker that what the American people want is kumbayah –everybody living together in a circle and loving each other and no acrimony, nothing but love everywhere. …

“So the Republicans have done everything they can to try to make everybody like them and what they’ve ended up doing is creating one of the greatest political disasters I’ve ever seen in my lifetime simply because they failed to show up. And then when they finally did make a play of showing up, they didn’t have the guts to stick with it.”

While there are a few staunch conservatives in the Republican Party, such as Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah who have voiced strong opposition to President Obama’s plans, Limbaugh said the conservatives do not run the Republican establishment.

“Whatever the Republican Party is today is because the wizards of smart that run it are NOT the conservatives,” he noted.

Limbaugh added, “There are times I feel like we have just lost a war to the communists. … I almost feel like that’s happened here. And in addition to that, it seems like it happened overnight. All through the Bush years, I guess the signs were there, but I missed them. I didn’t see the utter total transformation and I will call it deterioration of the pop culture.

“With the election of Barack Obama and then the next day after that, it is like the country that was founded didn’t exist at all.”

“How do you go from Bush winning two elections to where we are now in the spate of a week is like what it seems to me to have happened. And because of that … I don’t really think that’s happened. We are being asked to believe it has. … They want us to believe this, they want us to accept it. They want you to, but things don’t happen that way.”

Limbaugh told his audience he sought to prepare their minds for an “all-out assault” on their beliefs.

“We’re gonna have to hang tough,” he said. “We’re gonna have to remain detached from that mess and stay up,  optimistic, of good cheer as best we can because there is an all-out assault now, not just on Cruz and Lee and not just on the tea party, but on the conservative wing of the party. …

“For the conservatives, it’s regroup time. I just want you prepared. There’s going to be an all-out assault on the people that you think have done a good job and, by extension, an all-out assault on you. It’s gonna come from both parties. It’s gonna come from the media.”


Hey Rush, welcome to our side.  You’re late to the party.

  1. Many of us have long referred to the GOP as the PSP, Perpetually Stupid Party, since they never do what conservatives request, but always roll over and give in to the Democrats.
    When was the last time the Democrats compromised ANY of their positions? Not since Bill was actually working together with Newt.

    Tea Party on the horizon!

    Well, hell. Where was Limbaugh back in 2008, when we Crispies were yelling all this stuff from the rafters?

    • Hardnox says:

      Exactly right. He and the others were still kissing RINO ass. Now he, Hannity, Levin, and others are saying what we have been screaming for years. Better late than never I suppose but we all would be better off if they stepped up earlier.

    Re: Buck- Tea Party on the horizon!, Nox,That third party thing is beginning to take hold. Tea Party/TOTS (Tired of This Shtuff). Oh, if I disappear because of some letters to the House, well, carry on, and hoist one in my memory

  6. western guy says:

    Dear Mrs. Bachmann, I take pen in hand to urge you to circulate this request to any and all who have the want and will to fight for the right thing for this country. I understand the next vote due to arrive on the floor is the increase in the debt ceiling. I suggest that every Republican take the same stance, to wit: stand up to vote, state that you are taking the same principled stand that none other than Pres. Obama took, urge all members to join you in that stand, and vote NO to a debt ceiling increase. The Treasury takes in enough money to service the interest payment and there are more and more citizens that know this. Urge the Speaker to continue to stand and fight….we have enough so-called republicans in the senate “caucus-of -surrender”, we do not need anyone from the house to join them. Please continue to fund one or two things at a time, this is the constitutional responsibility of the House of Representatives. Please urge your fellow members to continue the fight without fear of the democrats, press or the president….they only say nice things when we present with abject surrender, and surrender should NEVER be an option. If you are going to go down, at least go down SWINGING! The citizens want their country back. Thank you for your time and attention. L. Xxxx Citizen/Voter/Sleeping Giant

    Good post, ‘Nox. It’s about time he caught up. Maybe he’ll tick off some more people. Hope is a good thing.

    • Hardnox says:

      Thanks. I thought this good news. The talking heads have finally stuck their collective necks out bucking network executives for a change.

  8. Mrs AL says:

    Since retiring from copdom, my husband person has steadily calmed down and become less prone to express himself via street language when he was on the job. He asked this morning what happened with ‘that bill in the Senate.’ Well, I said, the Resident has already signed it. To which he replied, ‘effing’ cowards (in the House). ‘They (Republicans) have bowed to bullying again.’

    • Hardnox says:

      He’s got plenty of company. It is difficult to remain civil when we have such cowards in charge. What was the last two weeks about other than kabuki theater?

    Hey, Ohio, take note.
    When Boehner came to the choice of serving his constituents or kissing a donkey’s ass, he chose the latter.
