Rush Limbaugh: ‘I Went To Bed Last Night Thinking We’ve Lost The Country’
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh offered a dire prognosis for the Republican party following last night’s defeat of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Limbaugh said that it is difficult for any candidate to run a successful campaign against “Santa Claus.” He went on to say that his last thought as he went to bed on election night was the Republican party had “lost the country.”
Limbaugh said that he thought Romney and his family would have been great for the nation, but his recipe for a turnaround – hard work – is no longer accepted by the American people as their only route to success.
“In a country of children, where the option is Santa Claus or work, what wins,” Limbaugh asked.
Limbaugh dismissed political experts who have postulated on Wednesday morning that the GOP has a problem with a lack of support from women and minority voters. He said that the party has a number of successful female, Hispanic and black officeholders, but their life stories were not held up as a model for emulation.
“I went to bed last night thinking we are outnumbered,” Limbaugh concluded. “I went to bed last night thinking we’ve lost the country. I don’t know how else you look at this.”
