DOES NOT LEAD ALWAYS TO

Shaken by Mitt Romney’s decisive loss, Republicans are blaming everybody–even the usually sacrosanct Rush Limbaugh. Top strategists are speaking out against the conservative radio host, saying the party needs to steer clear of his far-right and factually inaccurate vision of America.
Mike Murphy, GOP strategist, said on this week’s Meet the Press that while it’s “very fashionable now to beat up Romney,” it’s important that “we’ve got to get a kind of a party view of America that’s not right out of Rush Limbaugh’s dream journal.” And former John McCain campaign strategist Steve Schmidt, at a panel at the University of Delaware last week, insisted that Limbaugh’s “white, 65-plus and rural” audience is not what the country looks like anymore and that the radio host was “driving a message of total ludicrous nonsense.”

It seemed they were not even listening to the last-man-standing Republican standard-bearer. This the way paid performers might act.) It was shocking to hear Romney praise and associate himself with our beloved ex-president and Democrat, Bill Clinton. This is conclusive evidence that Mitt Romney has no core…along with having no backbone. He bends with the winds blowing from big money donors, Rush Limbaugh, Reince Priebus, et als. What does Mitt Romney stand for? Have you noticed that on the stump he goes on and on with his rehearsed criticisms of Barack Obama? However, he does not offer specific Mitt Romney ideas that he would carry out as President. With Mitt Romney it is all about secrets. He wants us to trust him and let him sail to victory without
