“The establishment of this party is authoring its demise. You talk about Pelosi and Reid and Schumer and all these other Democrats — Bob Menendez, the Democrat senator from New Jersey — all warning us that if we don’t do this on immigration, we’re never gonna win the White House. As though they are interested in us winning the White House? I mean, the idea that the Democrats are advising us to do things to help us, which means that they would lose? I just don’t buy it. I’m sorry. I don’t think the Democrats ever want us to win the White House ever again.” – Rush Limbaugh, July 1, 2013
RUSH: Here’s Brad in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.CALLER: Mega dittos, Mr. Limbaugh. A pleasure to speak to you. I told your call screener there that I am an attorney. I teach law. I’m a former public official and a Republican, and I advise my clients and my students, “You can’t take legal advice from the people across the table. They’re going to give advice, obviously, that is in favor of their position.”RUSH: Exactly.CALLER: That sounds so obvious, why even say that, right? Well, it’s not. A lot of people don’t seem to get it, and a lot of politicians don’t seem to get that. Why is it that Republicans are always apologizing because of your … what the Democrats are saying?

The Republicans actually now target their campaigns for 20% of the electorate, and who are they, the 20%? They’re said to be non-ideological, “So don’t approach them with fire and brimstone,” and then the trick was completed when the media and the Democrats spread the notion that the independents don’t like ‘partisanship.’
