PAT ROBERTSON DUELS RUSH LIMBAUGH AGAIN?
"Those people in the Republican primary have got to lay off of this far right stuff. They're forcing their leaders, the front-runners, into positions that will mean they lose the general election. You appeal to the narrow base and they applaud the daylights out of what you're saying, and then you hit the general election and they'll say no way. They've got to stop this far right extremism! It's just so counterproductive. Well, if they want to lose, this is the game for losers."
Icheoku says the message, "Stop pandering to the far right or lose in 2012," coming from a fundamentalism-personified Pat Robertson, should be more than enough to drive the message home into the cranial recesses of the Republican wanna-be presidential candidates, that they are running on empty. Extremists' votes, whether of the far right or far left, never puts anyone in the White House and 2012 will not be any exception. It appears Pat Robertson has once again deliberately taken the other corner of the ring opposite Rush Limbaugh, whose view is that those Republican candidates are not far-right enough and should accordingly move further further away right and to the tipping edge of far right extremism. Icheoku notes that this would not be the first time both men have sparred or disagreed on an issue. The other time when radio talking head Limbaugh said he wants Obama to fail, Pat took umbrage at the remark saying, "That was a terrible thing to say. I mean, he's the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn't, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally." Peradventure Pat Robertson has at last acknowledged that Rush Limbaugh is missing some nuts and bolts in his brains; or did he just say that Rush Limbaugh is suffering from some mental retardation induced by illicit drugs ingestion? Icheoku is just asking.
