Rush Limbaugh admonished House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Monday for acknowledging on Fox News Sunday that the Occupy Wall Street movement has some legitimate gripes.
Cantor insisted that protesters focus is misdirected on Wall Street instead of on policymakers on Congress.
Limbaugh had none of that, insisting on his show Monday that accepting any part of the Occupy message is inappropriate and hurts the Republican Party.

Obama’s harm is deliberate, yours was a simple mistake. Vast difference.
Frankly, republicans should stay waaaaay away from this. Maybe a very neutral reply if asked a direct question, but otherwise the left needs to own this fully. Every last stinking hippy bit of it.
By any repubs legitimizing any part of this they take the heat off of obama’s embrace of this OWS crap. It makes the right partners with obama, in essence, so if crap goes really wrong the left can point to idiots like Cantor and say, “See, it was them too!” “They backed the protesters too, you can’t blame just obama for supporting them!”
You are right!
You are right on. We do not need a circular firing squad.
Is anybody as sick as I am of hearing Cantor and Boehner everytime they come on TV to oppose some ridiculous Obama initiative, prefacing their remarks by mewling “ we wanna work with the president on this, but...”
The gop elite couldn’t care less about what Rush or the people are saying. They do what they want to do. All any of them wants is to stay in power and keep their perks.
Maybe Rush has finally realized they just give lip service and that’s it.
I’m in Cantor’s district. I have known for years what he is and haven’t voted for him since 2006.
And Freepers, remember how some of you were pushing this guy for President at one time. I cannot remember the year; I am indeed an OldPossum, that’s my excuse.
Well, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
It’s a rare occasion when Cantor is not being weak-kneed.
We need to clean house in the leadership in both chambers of Congress.
