Rush Limbaugh said that he has been trying to put his finger on where we are on what's going on in Washington with the government shutdown and debt limit. Rush told the audience he has confirmed what is going on, and it's about the Republican attitude, and it's so unnecessary. It's so defeatist.

Rush said, "The Republican attitude is because they're total prisoners of what goes on in the Beltway. They're total prisoners of the Beltway narrative. I'm not kidding, especially in the House, they think the last 15 days have eliminated any chance they've got of winning any elections in 2014 and 2016, and I am not kidding.

They think Cruz and Lee and the people that led this have doomed them, and they are defeated. They are out of strategies. It's just mind-boggling that they don't have the long view, that they don't understand the seeds that they're planting right now."

Rush went on to say, "The Rupublicans are warning the country of the absolute dangers of Obamacare. Well, some of the Republicans are. Others have been dragged kicking and screaming into it. But the people have led this fight. The people that have done their best to educate the American people as to what's coming are going to be vindicated down the road. They are going to, as it is said, be stood in good stead. They're gonna be okay."
