RUSH: Don’t you dare, don’t you dare believe that immigration had anything to do with Eric Cantor losing. Don’t you dare. The White House is telling the Republicans immigration had nothing to do with it. The Politico is telling the Republicans immigration had nothing to do with it.
Ladies and gentlemen, greetings, and welcome to the EIB Network and the Rush Limbaugh program.
I can honestly say I have never seen such a divide between the people who govern this country and the people who live in it. I have never seen Washington so distant and so removed and so unaware. It is stunning to me to listen to some of the commentary from inside the Beltway. Everybody has their take on what happened with the Eric Cantor and Dave Brat election last night. But I remind you, I went back and looked at some of the transcripts of me on this program in the past months in which I have been predicting a wave election.
I have been predicting that inside-the-Beltway people have no clue what the people of this country are really thinking. They have no clue how irritated people are. They have no idea how angry, and they don’t care on top of that, even if they were aware. But Washington has less and less about it that relates to normal life in this country than I’ve ever seen. And the commentary in the aftermath of this election last night is evidence of it, and I’ll share some of that with you as the program unfolds.
