Rush Limbaugh, the de facto leader of the Republican Party, fires Mitt RomneyWe all know Rush Limbaugh is the Godfather of the Republican Party. You listen to him, and do what he says, or you’re out. People often say that the President of the United States is the “leader of the free world.” No, sorry. If the POTUS is a Republican, Rush Limbaugh becomes the leader of the free world. Can you think of a scarier thought than Rush Limbaugh calling the shots for the entire planet Earth?
(I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. But I digress.)
Anyway, even when the President is not a Republican, Rush still runs the Republican party. He is now in charge of both the Senate and the House, because if you are a Senator or a House rep, and a Republican, you do what Rush says or you are out.
Similarly, Rush Limbaugh is the gatekeeper for the Republican Party’s process of putting up candidate for president.
Not long ago, Mitt Romney seemed to be indicating that he was thinking about running for President. Shortly after that, he indicated that he thought Anthropogenic Global Warming was for real and important. Then Rush said this:
Rush Limbaugh Ends Mitt Romney’s Presidential Aspirations over Global Warming
Then, Romney said this:
‘After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee.”
And so, in this manner Rush Limbaugh has fired Mitt Romney.
I hate the expression, “Grow a pair.” But, really, Republicans, do grow a pair when you get a chance. This is embarrassing.
