“Rush Limbaugh is the voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party. He has laid out his vision, he’s been very up front and I compliment him for that. He’s not hiding. He’s called for President Obama to fail. He has been up front and hasn’t stepped back from that. And that’s what he has enunciated. And whenever a Republican criticizes him, they have to run back and apologize to him and say they were misunderstood.” — “Rahmbo” speaking this morning in CBS’s Face The Nation.
