Invitation To Moderate Republicans: Leave RUSH, Join The Democrats!

Limbaugh 2  Radio personality Rush Limbaugh who seems to be the anointed spokesman for the GOP is trying to kick retired General Colin Powell out of the Republican Party. 

Earlier this week in an address to a conference in Washington sponsored by Fortify Software Inc., Powell said, “The Republican Party is in deep trouble. The party has to reconcile with the fact that the mood of the voters has changed, Powell suggested: “Americans do want to pay taxes for services… Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less.”

Powell said that in his observation he believe some of the party’s leaders were bowing too far to the right and suggested that neither Limbaugh nor commentator Ann Coulter serves the party well.

The party lacks a “positive” spokesperson, continued Powell: “I think what Rush does as an entertainer diminishes the party and intrudes or inserts into our public life a kind of nastiness that we would be better to do without.”

This infuriated Limbaugh and he said, “Look, if you want to know what this is all about, Colin Powell is out there saying that American people want more taxes, they want bigger government. He’s out there saying I am killing the Republican Party while he endorsed and voted for Obama,” Limbaugh said on his show. “The Republican Party nominated the exact kind of candidate Colin Powell thinks the Republican Party should have and he still endorsed Obama. He’s just mad at me because I’m the one person in the country that had the guts to explain his endorsement of Obama. It was purely and solely based on race. There can be no other explanation for it. What Colin Powell needs to do is close the loop and become a Democrat, instead of claiming to be a Republican interested in reforming the Republican Party,” Limbaugh said. “He’s not. He’s a full-fledged Democrat. So I don’t care. This kind of stuff is said about me ten times a day by liberals. He’s just one of them doing it. ”

Ha! Poor Rush cannot take even the hint of constructive criticism.  He is such a BIG cry baby! 

But, as a Democrat, speaking collectively, we will gladly accept Colin Powell and any other open minded, innovative, forward thinking Republican who wants to join us. We love America and want to see it become all it can be and we need your ideas to make this a great country for all of us.

Cross over moderate Republicans, come on down – we are glad to have you!!!

  2. Rush is the self-anointed spokesperson for the party … just ask him!

    Meanwhile, the GOP is the party lacking both a leader and a message. But politics runs in cycles, and time will sort them out. Actually I’m one who believes that it will be the Dems who will invigorate the Republicans in due time.

    The first thing to watch will be the moderates in both parties. They have enough numbers that they could block whatever they wish. That will be the first potential sign for the GOP.

    Rush, Coulter, and other talking heads are pathetic and represent only a small slice of voters. Meanwhile, the GOP is recruiting moderates to run in key races.

    Keep pounding on Rush and company!
