    Cheney On Limbaugh: "I Love Him" (VIDEO)

    CommentsMany Republican leaders have squirmed lately when asked about Rush Limbaugh, fearful of angering the conservative talk show host but not willing to endorse his most incendiary remarks. Not so Dick Cheney, who offered a full-throated defense of Limbaugh on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday:

    Q: What next for your party? There has been a big dust-up in recent days, in parts stoked by the White House, about Rush Limbaugh making some comments. David Frum, a conservative who worked in your administration, says that Rush Limbaugh is kryptonite, because he drives away the voters the Republicans need to build the road to discovery. Is Rush Limbaugh kryptonite?

    CHENEY: No, Rush is a good friend. I love him. I think he does great work and has for years. He's now offered to debate President Obama on his radio show. Hell, I'd pay to see that! It would be interesting to have developed.

    A majority of Americans and a huge plurality of Republicans drew a blank when Gallup asked them who speaks for the GOP today. The best news for the Grand Old Party out of this poll is that the sound of crickets is a better answer than the two names that most often came to respondents' lips: Dick Cheney and Rush Limbaugh.

    Here's the breakdown from Gallup:

    So you wanna point me to anything in that which indicates Limbaugh influenced Cheney or had any power over the party?

    There is only one stripe that follows the commands of Beck and Limbaugh, and they all vote Republican.

    Don't let him suck you into this irrelevant discussion about Limbaugh and Cheney - it's a red herring, and meant to distract from yesterday. Powerline summed it up best with their "Top 5 lessons from yesterday" (edited for length by me).

    1. The "independents" or "moderates" get it. That is, they seem to understand that the Obama agenda and those allied with it are bad news for the economy.

    2. The era of succeeding by running against George Bush is over.

    3. Intensity counts.

    4. Far from being a post-racial figure, Obama is the most racially polarizing politician since George Wallace.

    5. Goldwater 2.0 is underway. That is, the Republican Party, which, in domestic policy, had been all but emasculated by Bush's playing kissy-face with welfare state and corporate liberalism is into the process of discovering that conservatism is its heart and its salvation.


    Should this continue, Obama and those who wish to further such policies, their days are numbered... after just 9 months.

    So nothing to refute the points made in this thread? Just another trolling expedition?

    That's what I thought.

    I know Palin endorsed Hoffman, and many conservatives thought Gingrich was wrong for endorsing Scazzi, as I did.

    What I did not see on the news or any where else was a "touting" of a New GOP.

    Who are the ones calling for the GOP to shun the moderates and move the party to the right?

    And you actually believe this is a GOP initiative??? I'm not sure what to think about someone that believes a radio talk show host can command a major political party to do as he pleases. Perhaps you've been reading Daily Kos or DU too much.

    Who are the ones calling for the Dems to shun moderates like Lieberman and move the party to the left?
