So is House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) going to criticize Rush Limbaugh, or not?
Earlier today, Rush told
Greg Sargent that Cantor's comments
on ABC's This Week
, saying that neither he nor other Republicans want President Obama to fail, was in fact in agreement with Rush on the policy issues, and had been distorted by ABC.
So we asked Cantor's office for clarification -- and they're not giving a real answer to it.
Instead, Cantor press secretary Brad Dayspring is daring the Democrats to go talk to Rush themselves:
If Robert Gibbs is worried about the policies Rush Limbaugh talks about on his show, he should call into the show- I'm sure Rush would welcome it. In the meantime, if Mr. Gibbs and the Administration want to focus on creating jobs and helping the Middle Class deal with an economy in recession, they should call Eric Cantor and work with us on the these very real problems.
After seeing what happened to Michael Steele, who can blame Cantor for not wanting to be caught criticizing the great leader?
