From Chaos, Rush Limbaugh Emerges as GOP’s New Leader

MADISON – With controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh emerging from the chaos as the Republican Party’s new de facto leader, the DPW is exposing some of Mr. Limbaugh’s most notorious quotes, and asking Wisconsin Republicans to denounce his extreme agenda.

“The Rush Limbaugh’s of the world who want us to fail are woefully out-of-touch with the needs of everyday Americans,” said Joe Wineke, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. “Even though Rush is now leading the National Party, I challenge Wisconsin Republicans to take a stand and denounce his twisted views.”

Limbaugh rose to become the GOP’s leader this week after he smacked down Michael Steele, Chair of the Republican National Committee. Steele, who had earlier told CNN that Rush is not the real leader, was forced to issue an embarrassing apology this week, saying, “There was no attempt on my part to diminish his voice or his leadership.”  

Below are 10 top quotes from Rush Limbaugh – the new “voice” and “leadership” of the GOP:

“I want him to fail.” – Rush Limbaugh on President Obama’s economic solutions.

“The phony soldiers.” – on U.S. service members who support withdrawal from Iraq.

“He is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He’s moving all around and shaking and it’s purely an act. … This is really shameless of Michael J. Fox. Either he didn’t take his medication or he’s acting.”

“Poverty is not the root cause of crime.”

“They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it.”

“Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the twentieth century.”

“Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.

“The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do with it after you cut it down.”

The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.”

“I don`t need equal time, I am equal time!”
