If GOP Caves, Hello Third Party
CALLER: No. Rush, this is a step in the right direction. We’ll still be able to run. All of our leaders will be able to say, “We would have done more if we had more of the right people in government,” but they’re just not there, Rush. We don’t have the Senate, don’t have the White House.
RUSH: I guarantee if they say that, it’s hello third party, ’cause it’s Obama who’s on the ropes.
CALLER: Rush, third party equals Obama reelection.
RUSH: I know! That’s exactly what I’m telling you.
CALLER: Everybody in the Tea Party needs to understand that, that third party equals Obama reelection.
RUSH: I know, and you’re giving me the architectural mechanism to create a third party here.
CALLER: Rush, a third party will equal Obama’s reelection, and the Tea Party and anybody else that would like to start a third party need to fully understand that.
RUSH: You’re not hearing me.
CALLER: I’m trying, Rush.
RUSH: What I’m telling you is that if we go out and say, “Okay, this is the plan, and this is the best we can do, but we need four more years and we need another election,” that will create a third party.
CALLER: Well, no.
RUSH: It will, because it’s giving up. It’s because it’s waving the white flag. It’s saying, “We won that November election in a landslide, in a landslide, and the result of that landslide is, ‘This is the best we could do. We need to win more elections.'” It would be looked at as a cave.
