Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Last night on Fox Rush Limbaugh lectured wayward Republicans about the evils of compromising with Democrats.
But first Rush talked about Republican prospects for the future.
Rush Limbaugh: There is anything that we're not even conceding is possible a scandal or some such thing that could happen which could cause people to start voting against Democrats in droves regardless what the Republican do.
Ah! A bright future is in store for Republicans if they just keep shaking that phony scandal tree.
Greta Van Susteren: ...Are you suggesting Republicans shouldn't negotiate and have a bipartisan approach with Democrats?
Rush Limbaugh: Well.........Yeah pretty much, because I don't think we have anything in common with em. I mean where's the commonality?
That the two parties have a country to govern is far less important than Republicans getting their way on everything.
Rush Limbaugh: Too often in Washington it means conservatives have to compromise their core in order to be nice people or what have you.
I...I'm about defeating them rather not compromising with them. They don't...Compromise is a one way street! why don't you... not you. Why doesn't the press ever ask Obama or any Democrats why don't you... are you willing to compromise? What are you willing to give up? Its always a one way street! What do Republicans have to do to make something work? What do Republicans have to change to make something work?
So liberals having to compromise their core values so conservatives won't have to is Rush's idea of a fair compromise. If and when the parties do reach a compromise those resolute Democrats barley budge making the always conciliatory Republicans have to cave in again and again.
Rush Limbaugh: He doesn't want our ideas on the table! He's not about ideas he's brute force! Obama is about eliminating opposition not working with it. So why would we help him?
Obama and those dastardly Democrats want a one party state!
Its so ironic that Rush is urging the Republican Party to adopt the imperious no compromise tactics of a party pursuing one party rule, because he claims Obama wants to eliminate his political opposition.
