- The president is also getting help from Republicans who are calling out the most extreme members of the coalition, like Chris Christie. Mr. President, you need to form more alliances with Republicans like Christie, who's doing everything he can to help destroy the Republican Party, just like you want to do, and we'll help.
- People have been calling here for 25 years, "Why don't the Republicans do this or say that?" The Republicans are as afraid as anybody. The Republicans are scared to death, folks. They're afraid that Obama's gonna come for 'em one way or the other. Everybody's afraid. That's why the Republicans are doing what they're doing. That's why certain conservative media is saying what they're saying. Everybody's scared to death of Obama. I've never had this happen in my lifetime.
- RUSH: Exactly. This is precisely it. Again, you who listen to this program knew weeks ago -- or at least you heard a warning, in my opinion, weeks ago -- that this is what Obama's objective is: To be transformational. He admired Reagan not for what he did, but how he did it. He changed the trajectory of the country. Obama didn't like Reagan, but the trajectory is changing. Now, the reason this is important, folks, to me is if I can see it, I don't know why the entire conservative establishment in Washington can't see it and why there isn't any opposition to it. But there isn't. All there is is admiration. All there is is daily reporting on it.
- The Republican Party and whatever conservative wing it has is sitting by in a passive way, and they are watching themselves and what they believe in be targeted for elimination, and they're not doing anything about it.

There's even an obvious simple target for that anger - Karl Rove." and today I heard Fats Limbaugh attack the RINOS and the Republican Establishment for not putting up a harder fight against Pres. Obama. Those specific remarks didn't make it to the free transcript section but here are some almost as good:
