What a bunch of whining defeatists the GOP-e are. They got burned twenty years ago when Clinton and the media convinced the public that the people who passed a budget were responsible for “shutting down the government”, not the guy who vetoed it. So now they operate on the assumption that it always has to be that way. Well, it isn’t 1995 anymore, and there are now conservative media outlets for them to present their case to the public. But not if they are afraid to make it.

And per some people, the GOP may have suffered a bit at that time but not as bad as the media and others tell us or in other words, try to scare us about. At least, this is what Rush was saying.
