RUSH: Well, Bret Baier at Fox News tweeted that he’s heard the same thing: Wealthy Republican donors are starting to give up on Chris Christie for 2016. F. Chuck Todd at NBC News has tweeted the same thing. “Some GOP Donors Think Christie’s ’2016 Hopes are Done.’” Today, Christie gave his inaugural address to commence his second term as governor of New Jersey. Among the things he said: “We must shun partisanship. We must take action on behalf of the people.”
CHRISTIE: We cannot fall victim to the attitude of Washington, DC, the attitude that says, “I am always right and you are always wrong,” the attitude that puts everyone into a box that they are not permitted to leave, the attitude that puts political victories ahead of policy agreements. The belief that “compromise” is a dirty word.
RUSH: Oh, my. (stammering) So apparently here we’re trying to salvage Republican donors here with this kind of bipartisanship talk? You know, it’s not just Governor Christie. There are a lot of RINOs and Republican establishment types and consultants who say, “We can’t have this attitude, ‘I’m always right and you’re always wrong.’” What if it’s true? What if we are right? Are we supposed to just forget it because it’s not fair or it’s not right or it’s not kosher to be right?
