RUSH: So those inside the Beltway miss a lot that they don’t have any idea they miss it. One of the things that we learned out here in flyover country, and actually something we already knew, is that one guy with some supporters, one guy standing up can change everything. We learned that one guy standing up can stop the status quo in its tracks. Can you imagine in this last five years, if we would’ve had five or ten Ted Cruzes?
Can you imagine the difference? Can you imagine? If we had five or ten Ted Cruzes, we’d win a lot of debates. If we had 45 Ted Cruzes in the Senate, we’d come close to winning every vote — and that’s what everybody outside the Beltway sees — and I’m telling you, particularly the Republicans insides the Beltway do not. They look at Cruz, and they’re embarrassed, and they hope nobody thinks that they like Cruz — and I’m talking about the inside-the-Beltway, conservative media types.
