Skip to comments.Steve Schmidt: GOP must muzzle Rush Limbaugh
Posted on 11/06/2012 10:58:51 PM PST by Windy City Conservative
Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said early Wednesday morning on MSNBC that its time for Republican leaders to stand up to extreme statements and nonsense coming from within the GOP, including Rush Limbaugh.
Now, people calling for revolution and these extreme statements when I talk about a civil war in the Republican Party, what I mean is, its time for Republican elected leaders to stand up and to repudiate this nonsense, and to repudiate it directly, Schmidt said.

The GOP must muzzle Steve Schmidt.
Who is Steve Schmidt?
Rush is extreme. You can thank him for the Sandra Fluke phenomenom and of coursse you can thank him for operation chaos four years ago.
Rush just needs to make it clear he is not in the GOP any more, that’s all.
The GOP won’t fight the fraud, it means they are dead to me-again. The fraud will be 10x worse in 2016 because of the spineless GOP.
We need a new party.
Heck, I wouldn’t blame Rush for retiring.
If we followed Limbaugh’s blueprint for candidates, we’d win just about every time. 2010 was a Limbaugh style election and it was a mega sweep.
2012 was a consultant run loss.
Yeah Stevie! We can’t let the zombies know what we, as Americans, really stand for. We need to lie to them like the Fluken commie ‘RATS! Good thinking Skippy! Mmmmm. Mmmm. Mmmm.
Valerie jarrett said there would be hell to pay so to speak if Obama won. I bet the fairness doctrine will come back.
Another indication that the GOP is going to go the way of the Whigs.
The GOP establishment doesn’t realize that they’ve shot their last wad.
Rush is conservative.
You can thank spineless GOP weasels like this idiot for failure.
Walk away from the Geriatric Old Plotters.
The GOP is the hole in the conservative bucket.
IF it hadn’t of been for RUSH, we all would be basket cases. GO RUSH and YOU STAND UP TO ALL THE GARBAGE. AMERICA needs you more than EVER now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first refuge of the cur.
You can expect the GOP leaders to bring back the Fairness Doctrine.
The GOP establishment lost the election.
Yeah way to go after that Fraud Obama, Stevie
You lost to a fraud. You were spineless, so you’re hardly one to talk.
The ignoramuses of this country re-elected a communist. It's not the conservative's fault!
Anybody have Steve Schimdt’s telephone number.
Rush is the one reason why the GOP even has a chance in these elections
Now, his GOP Talk Radio competition is the problem. Unlike Rush, his counterparts are too busy appeasing the Liberal RINOs to get interviews, keep their FoxNews appearances. These are the ones who pander to the Liberal RINO politicans
Notice that Rush rarely appears on FoxNews? He won’t be compromised
Why didn’t Rush talk about the forged birth certificate? IT’S CLEARLY A FORGERY. Yes, I’m yelling, but not at you.
I am enjoying the talk about revolution.
Rush is a good guy. Not his fault Romney lost. He wanted Bachmann like I did and nobody went for her in the primaries. If we ran things like him we’d win. Romney is too moderate.
Rush needs to learn not to take stinky bait like the Sandra Fluke thing and then doubling down
GOP you go to f’ing hell. Rush is going to be a very very valuable voice in the years to come. I hope he lives in a fortress. Rush can be jokingly pompous but his take is indispensable to me and many others.
Conservative radio will be illegal. It’ll be against the law to say anything bad about Islam. These are just two things that will happen and the people will accept them.
Oh yes, it is time for the RINOs to solidify their grasp on the party by blaming conservatives for the loss of a liberal against a liberal..
What a shock. It’s not the RINO after RINO being nominated that’s the problem, it’s the conservatives who’ve spoken against the liberal agenda.
Like a broken clock, they’re almost always wrong.
what does he think, we’re going to go out to petsmart and purchase a muzzle and put it on him? And for what reason? Ican see none.
And as for operation Chaos, Hillary would have been worse. she’d have had credibility as she is an American, for one.
Two, she is better at all of this than BO is.
Three, She’d never go away. she isn’t now.
Rush other talk radio hosts defended Romney more than establishment pundits that wanted Romney to be the nominee
They ran the squishy middle former governor of lefty Massachusetts who helped inspire Obamacare, but the lost because there was still some conservative somewhere saying controversial things. These guys would never get past the first hole in a round of golf. “The sun was in my eyes...You coughed in my backswing...my ball wasn’t clean enough...that bird looked at my funny.”
Rush and other talk radio hosts defended Romney more than establishment pundits that wanted Romney to be the nominee
The RINO’s want a civil war.
The guy even said it.
Go to hell GOP
right now I am pissed at all of our so called leaders and that includes Rush Limbaugh and Steve Schmidt. To be going through what this country is going through is unfreakinbelievable and I hold them all responsible ALL of them!~~~~
Steve, this was your candidate. This was the guy you sandbagged Sarah Palin for. If he’d won, and I’ll be honest, I thought he made a damned good run at it once he got the nomination, and I thought he looked incredibly good to win it, maybe I’d give a crap what you think. But now...eh, no.
Steve Schmidt, rhymes with.......
Okay, but what did Fluke amount to? One round to the lefties. Big whoop. If you think she had anything to do with Obama’s win I have a bridge to sell you.
You know, you can only tell folks what’s good for them. You can’t make them comprehend or accept it.
It’s not Rush’s fault.
The people of this nation are going to learn the lesson the hard way. Obama is going to continue spending, continue infringing on our rights, destroying our military...
When the people who voted him in again, are begging in the streets because he has destroyed this nation, perhaps they’ll think back. More likely they’ll blame everyone else, like the ‘used to be rich’ they helped destroy.
This nation is headed for a big fall. Prepare for the worst, because this guy is going to deliver that on a platter to one and all.
Glenn Beck found he had beef with Fox News and left. He created his network and fled to Texas. He has his flaws, but he is a good man for laying it all on the line.
I’d say the problems is more with having rino candidates than anything else. But I think some on the right did not do enough to help Bachmann, Santorum or Gingrich get over the finish line.
One of the idiots critcizing one of the great conservative minds. FUSS. Didnt he quit Obama’s campaign because he supported Obama because he was black? now that I think of it, FUSS Kinda has a ring to it.
Fluke brings 10 people to a rally
If you think thats to blame for the loss, your a moron
Who is this yob?
I mean He quit McCain’s campaign.
In the past several decades, Rush has influenced more people to become conservative and Republican than any other public figure other than Ronald Reagan. This Schmidt guy is a knat swarming around a giant and he needs to be swatted away once and for all.
Schmidt was also involved in the McCain campaign. Some resume he has.
Sigh...on a philosophical basis, I love Rush. More often than not, on that basis, I agree with Rush.
But, here’s the thing: Rush is provacateur. He says outlandish stuff-he attempts to illustrate absurdity with absurdity-to keep his ratings up, first and foremost. He forgets-as my grandpappy used to say-you get more flies with honey than vinegar.
And, unlike twenty years ago (when you knew when he was kidding and when he wasn’t) he has created a persona of “serious commentator” that doesn’t allow us to excuse his (often funny) stuff.
As a result, he creates unnecessary distractions.
I DON’T want him to go away but I DO want him to go back to the days when he was able to convince people he was a satirist and not the voice of the movement. I want him to go back to skits and other things that puncture liberals with humor instead of just railing against them.
We needed to muzzle two candidates who are supremely ignorant about rape. Their stupid comments confirmed every awful suspicion women have about Republicans.
Don’t worry Rush. You can join our new crusade for secession!
We will stand by these principles. Oh, and about that document that was supposed to protect us from the likes of Obama? We’ll take that with us.
The GOP is a means, not the end itself.
What’s the point of having a GOP if it’s just going to be a wimpy version of the Democrat party?
