From the February 16 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:
RUSH LIMBAUGH: This is not an election of competing philosophies, ideological philosophies. People say to me, Trump is not a conservative. People say to me, Trump's not a liberal, Trump's not a conservative. Well, what is Trump then? Over here Cruz, Rubio, the Republicans for the most part are conservatives, there's some of them thatreally aren't. this primary, this election is not conservatism versus -- it is, but that's not how voters are going to decide it.
LIMBAUGH: Where is all the conservatism? Is it on Fox News? Is it National Review? Is it over at the American [Spectator]? Where is it? It isn't in the Republican Party, that is for darn sure. And so many people are livid about that. I'm talking about the party [establishment.] Yes, Ted Cruz. What more do you want me to say? Ted Cruz is the closest living thing to Ronald Reagan we're ever going to have in our lifetimes. I don't know what more I can say about Ted Cruz.
