Fox News’ Brit Hume told Bill O’Reilly that conservative talk radio hosts are causing the Republican Party to go on “suicide missions.” Hume said the party is unable to govern that it’s taking its cues from conservative talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh.
While he wouldn’t go so far as to say conservative radio hosts are “calling the shots” in Congress, he did say that they have used their “real influence” to promote primary challengers against what they view as insufficiently conservative incumbents. “Keeping radio talk show hosts off their back” Hume said, “is one way” for members of Congress to avoid that fate.
As Bill O’Reilly summed up Hume’s point, “You believe that in Congress, if somebody has to run every two years as they do, and they get on the wrong side of a powerful radio voice… they can really do them bad damage if they promote the other guy.”
The first person Mr. Green Eggs and Ham Sen. Ted Cruz ran to after his ridiculous 21-hour-19-minutes fake filibuster was Rush Limbaugh. Hume forgot to include fellow Fox News personality Sean Hannity to the mix. He has made it his duty to attack President Obama every chance he gets. Even when it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
