TOP 12 QUOTES FROM RUSH'S EPIC RANT: Boehner and Obama Have Joined Forces to Destroy Conservatives

There's only one problem with their plan: Constitutional Conservatives are the American people; therefore, any attempt to destroy conservatism is an attempt to eradicate the fabric of America:

1 The news is that the Republican Speaker of the House has thrown in with Barack Obama. I don't care what the Democrats are doing. What does that matter? Holy smokes: John Boehner has just squandered the election results before the Republicans even are sworn in to run the Senate...

2 There is a major falling out taking place in the Democrat Party, and we're supposed to be enthused by this, by the way, we're supposed to be excited by it... we're supposed to look the other way while our Speaker of the House gets in bed with Obama and advances the Obama agenda, takes care of it, amnesty, Obamacare, fully funded, done deal. The election must not have mattered.

3 [Campaign contribution] limits have practically been obliterated, which means that corporate donors can just start giving left and right. It used to be a limit of $37,000. Now it's $737,000, something... You know why? The Republicans put it in... This is how corporate America's gonna defeat the Tea Party. By allowing limitless donations from that crowd under the rubric that it's campaign finance and money is speech and freedom of speech and First Amendment. The theory is that Main Street, Tea Party people can't come close to competing with corporate money.

4 Marlin Stutzman is a Republican from Indiana... he's saying ... that he was lied to by the Republican leadership; that the Republican leadership reneged on a deal they made with him to get his support for the omnibus bill... Stutzman, Republican, Indiana, was one of the last Republicans to vote in favor of the rule allowing the House to fully vote on the omnibus spending bill, the $1.1 trillion omnibus... Stutzman backed the rule at the last minute after the Republican leadership told him that they would pull the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill, once the rule was passed, and they would replace it with a short-term continuing resolution that conservatives, including Stutzman, wanted, and that they would take up the whole thing next year after the Republicans and the new Congress are sworn in, and he was lied to.

5 ...the leadership in the House went to Marlin Stutzman and said, "Hey, if you vote for the rule, just give us the -- we need the rule. Our reputation, our image, we just want, we need the rule, vote for the rule and we're gonna pull the omnibus and replace it with just a couple, three-month, two-month, whatever, continuing resolution."

6 ...Stutzman said, "I supported the rule because I was informed by leadership that the cromnibus was dead and a short term CR would take its place." He was lied to flat-out because they didn't pull the bill obviously. They lied to him to get his vote.

7 ...he was told they would pull the full-fledged bill after they won the rule, but they had to win the rule for their reputation, for image, you know, protect Boehner's Speakership and all that. "After President Obama came out in favor of the cromnibus, Republican leaders spent the day whipping their members and hoping that Democrats would deliver the requisite number of votes." What you had at the end of the day, Barack Obama was whipping votes for John Boehner.

8 Elizabeth Warren, is, for all intents and purposes, threatening to shut down the government. Now, where this thing is in the Senate's kind of up in the air, but she's threatening to shut down the government. And the media is praising her. The media is praising her for principled opposition. And, as you know, Republican shutdown, why, it's the end of the world, it's the end of everything as we know it.

9 Why was and why is Barack Obama whipping votes for John Boehner? ...The reason is because the media is reporting this as, for all intents and purposes, a done deal. They are reporting that all the action was in the House, and once the House voted for the $1.1 trillion omnibus, since the Democrats run the Senate it's a fait accompli that it's gonna get done. [But t]hat's not the case because there's a flamethrower over there named Elizabeth Warren, and she's not happy with what's in the Republican bill -- and neither, for that matter, is Nancy Pelosi. So the Senate's not done on this. They did a couple-of-days spending bill, and the Senate's gonna take its time and still argue about it, debate this. Now, the consensus is that the Senate will ultimately pass it, because that's what Obama wants, and the Democrat Party's still loyal to him.

10 President Obama and John Boehner want a bill that the bases of their respective parties reject. Boehner is enabling (or did enable) the passage of a bill in the House that the Republican base wants no part of. They don't want Obamacare fully implemented or funded, and they do not want Obama to get away with this executive amnesty. Boehner has worked with Obama to fund Obamacare and Amnesty.

11 ...the Democrats are not invested in Obamacare to the degree that you would believe. Remember, Obamacare is why they lost, in their minds -- and you've heard by now the old stat that half the Democrat senators remaining in the Senate who voted for Obamacare, for one reason or another, are gone. We've had Chuck-U Schumer and Tom Harkin and a number of other Democrats publicly throw Obamacare under the bus claiming it was bad bill... But Boehner has picked up the slack there with the Republican omnibus bill, which fully funds it.

12 Why are Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Steny Hoyer, working so hard on John Boehner's behalf? ...The reason why is it's Boehner's doing their bidding. It's Boehner's bill they want. Boehner, the Republican Speaker of the House. His bill is what Obama wants. That's why they're working. That's why they're whipping votes for Boehner. That, to me, is what's newsworthy today. Not the fact that there may be some fallout in the Democrat side.

It is mind-blowing how this asshole Boehner is still in Congress, let alone elected three times as GOP Squeaker.

But we did it to Eric Cantor, and we can do it again.

We have to starve the GOP to death and replace it with the Tea Party, much like the Whig Party was put out of its misery by the GOP in 1860. Oh yeah: we need to boycott the business who pour money into the GOP, or the tv programming that features the likes of GOP scumbags like Karl Rove.

Hey, did you hear? - Pee Wee Prebus is up re-election for GOP Chairman!
