Will Somebody Please Tell Me How We Compromise with Socialists?
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s turn back the hands of time. Earlier this year you will recall during the continuing resolution debate, the funding of the budget, the raising of the debt limit, I was urging from behind the Golden EIB Microphone, John Boehner, the Republican leadership, to force Obama to cave, that we were the ones who held the position of strength coming off the 2010 midterm elections, which was a landslide shellacking. The Democrats lost 63 seats in the House. Well, it’s a net number that the Republicans have now in the leadership, in their lead. All the way down the ballot, state and local issues, the Democrats just took a bath. And I said winners don’t compromise with losers. Losers compromise with winners.
At the end of World War II in Japan on the USS Missouri, we did not compromise with the Japanese. We gave them the terms of surrender, and they signed them. Ditto in Europe, in World War II. Winners do not compromise with losers. When I said that the State-Controlled Media and the Democrat establishment literally had a cow. They called me and they held those remarks up as the single reason why this country was never gonna go anywhere, because I, El Rushbo, was not going to permit the Republicans to compromise. When I hear Republicans want to compromise, I immediately say, “With who, and where?” Where do we want to compromise with Obama? Do we want to say, “Okay, we’ll give you health care in ten years instead of next year?” Or, “Okay, you can have half of the tax increases.” Where’s the compromise on tax increases? Where’s the compromise on government spending? Where’s the compromise on stimulus bills?
