RUSH: Now, I have a question, and I’ll bet that many of you were asking the same thing. Where’s the Republican Party yesterday and today? No, no, no. Seriously. Forget Tea Party, establishment stuff. Where is push-back from the Republican Party? I know it’s a rhetorical question, but I’m gonna mention it anyway. You’ve got the president of the United States, his signature piece of legislation is a bomb, it is an abject failure. He has to sound like he’s selling — what’s that guy, the infomercial guy, Ron Popeil and the Ginsu knife. It’s like Obama’s out selling bamboo steamers yesterday.
It would seem to me that the Republicans could easily call a press conference or some kind of an appearance and bring out a bunch of people who tried to sign up, haven’t been able to sign up, get them to tell their stories, and in the same vein let it be known that the Republican Party is looking out for you, the people of the country and so forth. I mean, in the old days this might have been done. I don’t know how old the days would have to be for the Republican Party to have done something like that, but clearly the establishment of the Republican Party doesn’t want to do anything to incur the wrath of the media.
