From Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., to the nation’s liberal pundits, many are trying to convince the rest of the country that the “message” of Tuesday’s election can be summed up in one word: Compromise.
But not Rush Limbaugh.
Limbaugh opened Wednesday’s show with a monologue debunking the desperate Democratic spin on Tuesday’s results, which saw the Republicans retaking control of the Senate, padding their control of governors’ offices and putting control of both chambers of Congress in GOP hands for the first time since 2006.
“The Republican Party was not elected to compromise,” Limbaugh declared. “The Republican Party was not elected to sit down and work together with the Democrats. The Republican Party was not elected to slow down the speed the country is headed to the cliff and go over it slowly.
“The Republican Party was elected to stop before we get to the cliff.”
