On his recent show Rush Limbaugh tried to explain Mitt Romney’s loss to President Obama. ‘Small things beat big things yesterday,’ he said.
‘Conservatism ... did not lose last night ... it is practically impossible to beat Santa Claus. People are not going to vote against Santa Claus, especially if the alternative is being your own Santa Claus.’
According to Limbaugh, Romney promoted traditional values of hard work which have long been forgotten. In his opinion Romney would have been a great president. ‘He may have not been the most optimal candidate, but he's a fine man,’ he said.
‘He would have been great for this country.’ He also rejected the notion pointed out by conservatives that the GOP is overwhelmingly dominated by whites.
‘We have plenty of highly achieved minorities in our party!’he said.
