(CNN) – Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh fired back at Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele Monday, suggesting on his radio show the GOP leader appears to be supporting President Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Why do you claim to lead the Republican Party when you seem obsessed with seeing to it President Obama succeeds?" Limbaugh addressed Steele.
"I frankly am stunned that the chairman of the Republican National Committee endorses such an agenda. I have to conclude that he does because he attacks me for wanting it to fail," said Limbaugh.
Late last week, Steele told CNN's D.L. Hughley that Limbaugh is an "entertainer" whose comments are "ugly."
Also on his radio program Monday, Limbaugh said Steele is being used by the "liberal media."
"Michael Steele has been around long enough to know that the liberal media will use him by twisting what I say or what others say," he said. "He took the bait, he bit down hard on the bait, he launched an attack on me, even though the premise of what was said to him was false."
hey Steal they do not wont you in the RNC
Why do you claim to be an American when you seem so obsessed with seeing that this country fails?
Steele needs to go...he's not representing republicans!
That's it! The Party is dead and over! Thank GOD!
Too Funny...keep it up, after all Rushie, you are a comedian.
Rush is a scumbag and should be deported. We don't need jerks like him in the USA.
WHY --– DO --– RUSH, --– HANNITY --– AND --– COULTER --– HATE --– AMERICA --– SO --– MUCH?
It appears the GOP has a Frankenstein problem.
wow...if THIS is the face of the new repukes, the dems have nothing to worry about. We'll be in control for years to come. Or at least until the repukes wake up and see just what an idiot this man is. He's only after the attention, and as long as he gets it, he'll keep opening his mouth and making stupid comments.
no need for the dems to worry, Lush will take care of the repukes for us.
Rush is right. He is a very smart man.
THE ADDICTS THAT LEAD THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
NEED NEW POLLS. WE WILL NEVER ELECT ANOTHER BUSH.
Remember when Limbaugh, or people like him, said it was "unpatriotic" and "un-American" to speak against the President when Mr. Bush was in office...
Limbaugh is one of the new leaders of the "Hypocrite Party".
Those of you who underestimate Rush, you need to know this. If Rush runs against Steele in an election for the Republican nomincation, who do you think is going to win? As a United States Military Officer and a current attorney, I adore Rush.
Steele must apologize to the head of the Republican party – Rush Limbaugh!
It is beneath the dignity of the office of RNC chair to get into a verbal confrontation with a talk show host, however popular. If the Republicans had wanted Mr. Limbaugh as their official chair, they would have elected him.
Our country has too many problems to spend energy on this kind of drama.
limbaugh's trying to divide the country and make us fail. it is the presidents plan, but we have to make it work. negative people like limbaugh should not even make the news. why report on him? what has he done to help? nothing.
Steele MUST apologize to the head of his party, or he will be kicked out of the Republicans!
Rush Limbaugh=Poster child for the GOP.
Put him back on probation or give him for life for his stupidity
Hey, shouldn't this story go under the 'Entertainment' section?
Obey your master Rush" Republicans LOL!!! Ha ha ha!!!!!!
Why would anyone listen to this chunky junkie?
THE NO PARTY IS ABOUT TO SELF DESTRUCT...
Obama is Pelosi's socialist puppet!!
Another fine example of "Country First."
