Man-on-Dog has his marching orders from Rush, like a good little puppy. Think Progress interviewed the former senator from Pennsylvania.
TP: What do you think about what Rush said about, I mean, do you hope, should we hope that President Obama fails?
SANTORUM: If…absolutely we hope that his policies fail.
Speaking of the leader of the GOP, Rush received a hero’s welcome at CPAC, received an award, and was — get this — compared to Ben Franklin.
After his speech, CPAC presented Rush with a “Defender of the Constitution” award, which included a document signed by Benjamin Franklin. The presenter then compared Rush to Franklin:
The king of England sat with his advisers, and they read the writings of Ben Franklin. They said, “The colonists will never be successful if they read what he writes.” Just as the king’s successor, who is in the White House, said the other day, that conservatives will never be successful if they listen to Rush Limbaugh. The only way we will be successful is if we listen to Rush Limbaugh!
The crowd again erupted into cheers.
Again, this is a party in complete disarray — the delusional folks at CPAC didn’t hear the booming message sent last Nov. 4. Oh, btw, Faux News covered his speech live — there’s no doubt that he, not Michael Steele is seen as the leader of the party. (more…)
