Rush Limbaugh to Republican Leaders: Grow a Spine, Not a New Base!

by at . Comments

In a wide-ranging, hour-long discussion with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night, Rush Limbaugh shared his views on all things politics.

His criticism was not reserved for the opposing party, either.

Rush discussed a range of topics from his disdain for President Obama to his disappointment with the Republican Party leaders currently in Congress.

"The Republican Party wants a new base. The Republican leadership isn't conservative. They're not particularly crazy about conservatives," Limbaugh said.

"I'm a fairly prominent media conservative, and I swear I get more grief than the Taliban gets. I get more grief than Al Qaeda gets," he lamented.

"All conservatives do because we constitute a threat to the way Washington views the country. And I don't think it's so much conservative vs. liberal."

"It's Washington vs. the rest of the country ... and Washington has a mindset and a desire for the country that doesn't dovetail with the majority of the people."

When asked about the opposing Democratic Party, Rush reiterated that he was interested in "defeating them, not compromising with them."

He added, "The Republicans are shell-shocked. The image of racist, sexist, bigot homophobe has taken hold. They think that's what people think of them."

"I think they've lost their confidence ... they have bought into this notion of why they are hated, and they are trying to change rather than defeat the people responsible for it all."

"I'm about defeating them within the political arena of ideas."

Do you agree with Limbaugh's assessment?

Not a big Rush fan but it's true. Grow a set of balls or stay on the porch. People want a cause that they can sink their teeth into. This last " Pot of Gold" at the end of the rainbow has turned out to be nothing but an illusion. Obama is talking just to hear himself talk. Nobody has faith in his ass at all. Republicans need to stand strong and have the people choose which way they want to go- either continue on with this travesty they call a government or vote people in that can clean up this mess and DON'T EVEN START with that George Bush shit. Freaking Obama voters along with Pelosi fans-they havent done DICK but sit on their ass like a Buzzard and shit and squawk. What the shit were you out of wedlock peckerheads thinking? This mistake hasn't even completed 6 months into his 2nd term and look at the wreckage. If it took $10 to get to heaven you poor bastards wouldn't have enough money to get to Fort Worth but you will sit and congregate like hyenas and ear screw us about Trayvon , you and Al Sharpton.
