Joe Scarborough, John Heilemann to GOP: Ignore Rush Limbaugh, Do Deals with Obama

‘It’s in their best interests to do that! I keep hearing Rush Limbaugh, Rush Limbaugh, Rush Limbaugh’

Scarborough, Heilemann to GOP: Ignore Rush, Do Deals With Obama (NewsBusters)

Rush Limbaugh likes to say that when the liberal media says "talk radio," they mean him.  Rush's point was perfectly illustrated on today's Morning Joe.  John Heilemann first spoke of "talk radio  . . . howling" at Boehner and McConnell not to capitulate to President Obama.  Just a moment later, Heilemann made explicitly clear whom he had in mind: "you got to listen to Rush Limbaugh for just one day right now."

Then it was Joe Scarborough's turn to fulminate: "I keep hearing Rush Limbaugh, Rush Limbaugh, Rush Limbaugh." The message that Heilemann and Scarborough had for Republicans was clear: ignore Rush and do deals with President Obama.  Specifically on immigration, Scarborough suggested that Republicans not "capitulate" but "work with the president and meet in the middle."
