CALLER: Too many Republicans apologize for wanting conservative fiscal policy, and we gotta stop apologizing for that, and I think we're there now.
RUSH: Well, that's yet to be seen, but we're on the right road in that regard. Look, I don't want to go there now. I'm gonna do that after the election, but there are challenges....
...if Romney wins, there will be a competition in the Republican Party for people who want to take credit for it. Basically you're going to have two factions. One faction will be the Republican establishment, which will say their strategy of moderation, cooperation, reaching across the aisle, not scaring the independents, Romney's first debate performance, that's what did it.
The other faction will be the Tea Party and conservatives who will say, "If you guys don't wake up and realize that what won this election for you is this far-left agenda of the Democrat Party scaring this country to the point that people didn't want any more of it, if you don't realize what that means, you're gonna have to go back to the 2010 midterms. If you want to understand why Romney won this election, go back to the 2010 midterms. Everything Obama stands for was rejected and there wasn't a Republican on the ballot then."
CALLER: That's right. I agree.
RUSH: But that's for down the road. That may not even materialize. But if it does, that will be the... you know, even in the best families, there are arguments and there are disagreements, and it'll be the case here in due course. But if Romney wins, there will still be a lot of work to do.
