Now That's What We're Talking About

From Rush Limbaugh show.
"RUSH: Now, the Obey question. This is from Dave Weigel, who is a blogger at the Washington Post: "What do we know about the retirement of Rep. David Obey (D-Wis.)? Why would one of the most powerful men in Congress, elected in 1969[er], in a district that went for the Obama-Biden ticket, bail out of reelection? Republicans point to the campaign of Sean Duffy, a telegenic (literally) district attorney who raised a lot of money, built a following among national conservatives and, according to everything I'm hearing, was giving Obey a real battle in his internal polls. I've talked to Duffy several times and been so impressed -- and so convinced that this was the sort of race that would determine this was a good or a watershed year for Republicans -- that I dubbed him the No. 3 conservative to watch this year." The bottom line is here" David Obey, one of the most powerful men in Congress elected 1969er, in a district that went for Obama-Biden is quitting because he's being outpolled by a dyed-in-the-wool conservative Republican. Not a "moderate" Republican, not an "independent" Republican but a dyed-in-the-wool conservative Republican. Once again: A teachable moment.
