Though he usually focuses criticism on Democrats, top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh is scorching Republicans as “clueless” in their efforts to stop President Obama and his health-care agenda, and what he expects to be its “disastrous” impact on everyday life in America.

Limbaugh says last week’s 5-4 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding President Obama’s signature legislation is disastrous, severely harming the Constitution.
“And apparently it hasn’t sunk in yet in the Republican establishment how outrageously bad this is,” he explained.
“This is why Republicans and conservatives make no progress in pushing back massive government. We don’t live in Realville. Well, they don’t live in Realville. They refuse to accept the reality of what’s going on. And so they try to dress it up. They look for silver linings.
