Check out this interview Michael Steele did Saturday night with D.L. Hughley on CNN, in the wake of Rush Limbaugh’s speech at CPAC proudly proclaiming that he wants President Obama to fail.
Finding himself in unfriendly territory, Steele said that Rush is not the leader of the Republican Party — Steele is:
“Let’s put it in the context here,” said Steele. “Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, his whole thing is entertainment.”
“Yes, it’s incendiary,” Steele added. “Yes, it’s ugly.”
You start to see why Dems are so eager to tie Republicans to Limbaugh. The man can do an hour-plus speech for the activist base, declaring that he wants the president to fail so the country can survive and succeed — but in polite society, most people don’t want to be anywhere near this stuff.
