Limpbaugh is such a class act, isn't he?
"We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically. It's obvious that the Republicans are not going to do it, they don't have the stomach for it," Limbaugh continued. "As you probably know we're getting all kinds of memos from the RNC saying we're not going to be critical. Mark McKinnon of McCain's campaign said he'll quit if they get critical over Obama. This is the presidency of the United States we're talking about. I want our party to win I want the Democrats to lose."
He's encouraging today's voters to go for Hillary.
"I want Hillary to stay in this...this is too good a soap opera," Limbaugh told fellow conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday. [...] He also said Clinton is more willing than the Republican National Committee and John McCain's campaign to criticize Barack Obama.
Does this kind of campaigning work? Or this kind? The answer should be "no", but unfortunately, negativity works, and we all end up losing.
According to a new Fox News/Washington Times/Rasmussen reports poll out today, Republicans like Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) nearly as much as they like McCain. The survey -- of likability -- isn't indicative of whether they'd vote for Obama over their own nominee -- but it could suggest problems for McCain down the road, should Obama become the Democratic nominee.
Equally troubling for Republicans is that the survey showed that party supporters think Obama is smarter than McCain.
