Carolina conservatives want more opposition in DC
RUSH: Here’s a big See, I Told You So. I love this story. It’s out of Lincolnton, North Carolina. Republican Patrick McHenry, Republican congressman from North Carolina, “loudest constituents have no desire to see conciliation on gridlocked Capitol Hill, unless it comes from Obama and the Democrats.” This is such music to my ears. Patrick McHenry was at a town meeting and his voters showed up, “To hell with this compromise crap. Let them compromise.”

Why don’t the Democrats ever have to engage in outreach? Why don’t the Democrats ever have to make any adjustments? Why don’t they have to make any accommodations? Why is it always the Republicans? So Congressman McHenry’s constituents show up. He’s holding public Q&A sessions out there during the break, and conservative Republican loyalists showed up to one of his town meetings “demanding that he and his House colleagues defund Obamacare, refuse to raise the nation’s debt limit and generally intensify opposition to the White House and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.”
I’ll tell you, wherever these town meetings are taking place, the message from Republican voters is the same. Would you guys start fighting back? Would you start defending the country and the direction Obama’s taking it? We don’t want to compromise with these people. We don’t want to conciliate with the Democrats. We want to beat them. That’s what Republican voters are telling Republicans who at least are having the courage to hold town meetings. Not all of them are. But those who do, that is the message.
