RUSH: Now, don’t misunderstand me, ladies and gentlemen. I’m not coming up here with a partisan strategy that’s based only on partisan concerns for the Republicans. I think if you want to call Obama‘s bluff — if that’s what you really believe, if there are people who think that Obama will not go where he wants to go unless he has Republican fingerprints — then don’t give him any. If you believe the Republicans truly have leverage, then use it.
