Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh talks with guests in the East Room of the White House in Washington, prior to a Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony for Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, January 13, 2009

OPERATION LIMBAUGH planned by Obama political operatives, (Obama Chief of Staff) Rahm Emanuel, James Carville and Paul Begala appears to have NO legs.

Despite efforts by the Obama political team and its surrogates to link Rush Limbaugh to the Republican Party, just 11% of GOP voters say the conservative radio commentator is the party’s leader.

Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republican voters disagree and 8% are undecided in a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Democrats, however, are closely divided– 44% say Limbaugh is the Republican leader and 41% don’t believe it. Among voters not affiliated with either of the major national parties, 27% say Limbaugh is the Republicans’ leader, while 58% say he is not and 15% are undecided.

American voters are seeing through this FAUX-Democrat manufactured FLAP.

After President Bush, the LEFT needs someone to demonize and then associate with the Republican Party while distracting Americans from the retread, flailing policies of the Obama Administration.

Not working, is it?

    Wouldn’t the fact that 11% of the Republican respondents even list a radio personality and entertainer who has never held political office nor has had past aspirations to hold office seem as the leader of the party show that this strategy is working?

    I can guarantee that no one has ever listed Jon Stewart as the leader of the Democratic Party.

    27% of independents list Limbaugh as the leader, that’s not a good sign, with 15% undecided. This statistic does not bode well for Republicans, no matter how you spin it.

  • Flap

    This Operation Rushbo, the creation of Rahm Emanuel and James Carville in the White House has failed. The GOP has many problems but this flap is not one of them.

    In the meantime, Limbaugh’s ratings soar to the consternation of the Left.
