Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday reacted harshly to the what is being framed as a GOP surrender on the government shutdown and the debt ceiling.
“I was trying to think if ever in my life, I could remember any major political party being so irrelevant. I have never seen it,” Limbaugh said. “I have never seen a major political party simply occupy placeholders, as the Republican party has been doing. There has not been any serious opposition…against what’s happening in this country.”
He continued: “The Republicans have done everything they can to try to make everyone like them and what they’ve ended up doing is creating one of the greatest political disasters I’ve ever seen in my lifetime…I was pondering if I could ever remember…a time when a political party just made a decision not to exist, for all intents and purposes.”
