Rush Limbaugh slammed Jeb Bush on his radio broadcast Friday for suggesting that President Trump needs a primary race challenger who can offer alternatives to Democrats’ new ideas.
“The Democrats now are proposing new ideas, some of which I think are way out there,” Bush said. “And if Republicans think they can just say, ‘That’s bad,’ and not offer a compelling alternative, that can be bad for us.”
Limbaugh retorted that Republicans don’t need to offer their own versions of ideas that are “literal insanity.”
“No, we don’t have to come up with an alternative,” Limbaugh said. “If climate change is a hoax, why do we need to have any kind of an alternative to deal with it?”
Rather than offer competing plans that are slightly less terrible, Limbaugh advised alerting the public to just how awful the left’s ideas truly are.
“Without getting into the weeds of climate change, ask them, ‘Why in the world do you think you’re not paying enough taxes?’ and spell out the dollar amounts and how much this is gonna cost, and tell ’em how much freedom they’re gonna lose, and tell them how much more difficult life is going to get.”
