My Letter to Rush Limbaugh

I'm annoyed at this extended primary season. I think it should be over, and I've just been annoyed by a letter that an anti-Romney, a friend of Limbaugh's, wrote to him expressing his intention of blaming Romney supporters if Obama beats Romney in the general election. It was enough to get me to write Rush. I doubt he'll read it - I'm sure he gets way too much email to make that possible - but, it's worth a shot. The text of the letter is as follows:

For 3.5 years I've been saying that the people who supported John McCain in the primaries in 2008 have received the Obama presidency which they so very, very richly deserve. They should have supported Romney. Romney was the conservative, McCain was the squishy moderate.

Romney hasn't changed. He's portrayed as the moderate this time only because Obamacare has become the issue and because of the obvious similarities between Romneycare and Obamacare. But that doesn't mean that Romney isn't the same conservative he was in 2008, it just means that the political environment has changed so as to enable Romney's competitors to frame Romney as a false-conservative.

You read a letter on Friday in which one of your friends planned on blaming Romney supporters if Romney loses to Obama, much in the same way that I blame McCain supporters for Obama getting the White House in the first place. But your friend is completely wrong: Romney is not akin to John McCain.

If Romney loses to Obama, the blame will reside with Rick Santorum and Santorum supporters. All of it. All Santorum is doing now is helping Obama win in the general election. It's clear that Santorum doesn't realize just how different Obama is from your standard, run-of-the-mill Democrat. He meant it when he said that we might as well vote for Obama rather than to take a chance on the "Etch-a-Sketch" candidate. Santorum is perfectly willing - no, not just willing, HAPPY - to help Obama win a second term so as to give himself an opportunity to run and win as the Republican nominee in 2016.

I think it's time to start doing the country a favor and start tearing down Santorum for his continued de-facto support of Barack Obama, and start uniting around the candidate whom we know - WE KNOW - is going to be the nominee.

Hypothetically, even if Santorum were to win the nomination in a contested contest, you'd have him winning over the overwhelming judgment of the popular voters, and that would further fracture the already fractured Republican party. Even if you don't know - KNOW - that Romney is going to be the nominee, you might think long and hard about doing what you can to prevent anyone from even WANTING Santorum to win in a contested convention.

Sincerely, a daily listener....
