RUSH: So three million Republican voters stayed home on Election Day. Three million predominantly white voters stayed home. The media is all over the place with the fact that the Republicans lost "the white vote." They can't get the white vote. They did lose the white vote, but Democrats didn't get it. They just didn't show up, and it wasn't voter suppression that didn't turn 'em out. What would be the reason that three million voters didn't show up? Let's go through the possibilities. It could be that there are a number... We've talked to 'em. We've had 'em call. We got 'em, in fact, on hold. A number of Republicans are tired of moderate nominees. They've sent the Republican Party money for years and said, "To hell with it. If you're gonna eschew conservatism, I'm not giving you any money, and I'm not voting for you."

Republicans aren't conservative enough - or too conservative?
Rush talked today about why 2 million white Republican votes didn't bother to get off their butts and vote. He says it's because they wanted to send a message that the Republican isn't conservative enough. I say - and Neal Boortz says (at least he said yesterday) that it's because they're too conservative. Stop fighting gay marriage, stop fighting against abortion - stop telling women that God knows best for their bodies - and maybe they'd've got off their butts and voted. Don't get me wrong - they're stupid. I don't deny it. All you have to do is read the papers to see what Obama and the Dems are going to do to this country... but they just couldn't be bothered....
