Conservative syndicated radio show host Rush Limbaugh said on his Monday afternoon show that the Republican Party will be unable to survive if Obama wins this November. Limbaugh said that a second term to Obama would mean a total economic collapse and a re-assembling of the conservative party.
Limbaugh asked his listeners how long the United States will be able to survive if Obama wins a second term at the White House.
“We’re headed toward an economic collapse and we are the leader of the world. And when it happens to us, there are reverberations all over the world [...] how long is it going to take? I’m asking a serious question. 18 months? You throw ObamaCare onto what we know what we are going to get from Obama — more debt, more spending, the expansion of the welfare state. How long can this go on?” the conservative host asked, according to a report by Mediaite.
Making a reference to the comment by MSNBC host, who said last week that if Romney loses, it would mean an end of conservatism, Limbaugh disagreed. “If Obama wins, it’s the end of the Republican Party,” he said.
“There’s going to be a third party that’s going to be orientated towards conservatism — orthinks libertarianism,” he continued. “If Obama wins, the Republican Party will try to maneuver things so conservatives get blamed. The only problem is right now, Romney is not running a conservative campaign.”
Limbaugh hasn’t been particularly silent about his dislike of team Obama. He also made clear that he wasn’t impressed by the president’s DNC speech last week. He said his speech was not only halfhearted, but also similar to the one former Democratic Presidentonce delivered.
After being criticized for calling the president’s speech a “carbon copy” of Jimmy Carter’s, Limbaugh backed down his comments, saying that Obama could have picked the success stories of people like J. F. Kennedy or someone else if he wanted to dig into the past and look for inspiration.
“If he’s gonna go back to the liberal playbook, if he’s gonna go back to the Democrat Party failed ideas of the past, if he’s gonna go back to the boilerplate, why pick Jimmy Carter, if you want to win? Why pick Jimmy Carter?”
