So you are a regular listener? If not, just think how dumb of a statement this is.
BTW, almost every talk show including those two are highly critical of the Republicans. Hannity, not my favorite show, but I do listen fairly often because there is nothing better on, has said he changed his registration from Republican to conservative which is an option in NY because he is so sick of them. Rush has often been quite critical and there are many other talk show hosts that are quite popular and far more harsh than these two. Maybe you should listen regularly and you would learn something and see what you are missing
both parties lie, one party just has MORE streams of expression
And one group of voters believes giving more power to their lying politicians is a good thing and one group of voters thinks giving more power to lying politicians regardless of party is foolish. One group looks to the lying politicians to solve their problems and one group of voters looks to the lying politicians as a necessary evil that needs to be constrained to the minimum possible.
The problem is not the parties. It is the voters. One group thinks they can make a deal with the devil and one group thinks that is insane.
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
