From the December 17 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH LIMBAUGH: We had two midterm elections in 2010 and 2014, which were landslide victories for the Republican Party. The Democrat Party lost over 1,000 seats nationwide in just those two elections. People went to the polls in droves wanting exactly what was rubber stamped last night, or what will be, stopped. And instead they showed up in record numbers and they turned out and they just, they defeated Democrats down the ballot in the process. They elected Republicans to stop this. And now the Republicans have the largest number of seats in the House they've had in Congress since the Civil War. And it hasn't made any difference at all. It is as though Nancy Pelosi's still running the House and Harry Reid is still running the Senate.
Betrayed is not even the word here. What has happened here is worse than betrayal, and betrayal's pretty bad, but it's worse than that. This was out and out in our face lying. From the campaigns to individual statements made about the philosophical approach Republicans had to all this spending. There is no Republican Party. You know, we don't even need a Republican Party if they're going to do this. You know just elect Democrats, disband the Republican Party and let the Democrats run it because that's what's happening anyway. And these same Republican leaders doing this can't for the life of them figure out why Donald Trump has all the support that he has? They really cannot figure this out? Repeated stabs in the back like this, which have been going on for years, combined with Obama's policy destruction of this country is what has given rise to Donald Trump. If Donald Trump didn't exist and if the Republican Party actually does want to win someday, they'd have to invent him.
