Rush Limbaugh feels he’s lost the Country after Obama was re-elected.

November 8, 2012

Rush Limbaugh tried to explain Mitt Romney’s loss to President Obama on his Wednesday show.

“Small things beat big things yesterday,” he said. “Conservatism … did not lose last night … it is practically impossible to beat Santa Claus. People are not going to vote against Santa Claus, especially if the alternative is being your own Santa Claus.”

Romney, he said, had promoted “traditional” values of hard work, which had been rejected: “In a country of children where the option is Santa Claus or work, what wins?”

He dismissed the idea, floated by many conservatives, that the GOP had become too white and insular.  “We have plenty of highly achieved minorities in our party!” he said.

Limbaugh then turned to the exit poll data, which clearly had caused concern. “I went to bed last night thinking, ‘we’re outnumbered,'” he said. “I went to bed last night thinking we’d lost the country. I don’t know how else you look at this. The first wave of exit polls came in at five o’clock. I looked at it, and I said … ‘this is utter BS, and if it isn’t, then we’ve lost the country.'”

I think the problem is Rush Limbaugh hasn’t quite figured out that it is he and others like him who have been believing in Santa Claus.  They are also too white, straight and anti-everything.  That doesn’t work when you live in a country with such diversity.  If Romney had been more open to women, gays and minorities he would’ve been President easily.  People are over that mentality now.  That’s why they were forced to vote for the lesser of two evils.  Obama spends way too much money, but he has been vocally supportive of all people and the majority likes that.  Hence why he was elected again.  Maybe Rush, Mitt and there followers will wake up, but it’s still sounding like they just don’t get it.  And if they were more inclusive I would be able to say I’m a proud Conservative Republican, but not in this lifetime if they continue the way they have.
