In the March 16 issue of Newsweek (on newsstands Monday, March 9): ‘Enough! A Conservative’s Case Against Limbaugh’ David Frum examines Rush Limbaugh’s impact on the GOP and what conservatives need to do to assure people that Rush is not the voice of the party
- Rush Limbaugh?
- John McCain?
- Sarah Palin?
- Michael Steele?
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Republican voters say their party has no clear leader, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Another 17% are undecided.
Just five percent (5%) view either John McCain, the GOP’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential candidate, or new party chairman Michael Steele as the party’s leader.
Two percent (2%) see conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh in that role, and one percent (1%) name McCain’s running mate, Alaska Govenror Sarah Palin. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner are each seen as GOP leader by less than one-half of one percent.
This is as expected from a party that is out of power and coming off a Goerge W. Bush Presidency.
The Operation Limbaugh project enigineered in the Obama White House has been a failure and merely a distraction to a country seeking Presidential leadership, particularly on the economy.
As for David Frum, he does NOT speak for this conservative and by many political pundits is no longer considered a conservative because of his moderate to liberal views on the issues. Newsweek and the Washington Post who owns Newsweek needs to move along to another FAUX-conservative.
