Limbaugh: Why Are Republicans Scared of an Unpopular President?

by AWR Hawkins 5 Feb 2014, 10:46 AM PDT

On January 31st, talk show giant Rush Limbaugh said Republicans act "like Obama's approval numbers are...in the eighties," like they do not know that "majorities of Americans oppose practically everything Obama has done and wants to do now."

But instead of highlighting the damage Obama has done, Republicans are cowering and joining a suicidal amnesty push that takes attention away from the Obamacare disaster that Republicans should run against in November.

In addition to Obamacare, Obama's energy policy has doubled the prices consumers were paying for a gallon of gas under George W. Bush. His war on guns is also wildly unpopular, but amnesty is taking attention away from that as well.

On foreign policy matters, Russia does not respect the United States, Iran mocks us, and more than half of Americans believe we failed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Add the IRS Scandal, Benghazi, and Fast & Furious to the list, and the number of failures, questionable schemes, and alleged cover-ups are legion.

Yet Republicans clamor to support every endeavor Obama undertakes, including the amnesty push that will create a new Democrat-voting demographic that could deny Republicans a national election for decades to come.

Limbaugh said it is "frustrating and inconceivable" to see that Republicans are willing to sacrifice their party and their nation's future to please Obama.

One reason, the race card.

Because Republicans have actively created a schism that makes Republicans as desirable as a turd in a punch bowl.

Moderates that have voted R in the past, are not so inclined now. And to be honest, I can envision a scenario where I'd vote D.

Please elaborate on that scenario where you'd vote "D".    :whistle:

Awwww, a RINO lover gets in a twist. Now all we need is your compadre to come in call us all stupid and comment on how this is just like TOS.

I'm sick of the go along to get along types like Boehner. If my choice is a Democrat lite, or a Democrat, I'll choose the Democrat. At least the proper philosophical base will get the blame when things go south. If the Boehner, McConnell, etc. types keep getting elected, the country is run to suit the Democrats agenda, and anything that goes wrong is blamed on Republicans.

Maybe it isn't so much that they are "scared," but rather that they actually support much of what he has done, and wants to do??

Or their financial masters support it. I know, it's the same thing.
