Tedisco to Rush Limbaugh: Iím sorry!
Add career Albany politician Jim Tedisco to the list of spineless Republicans who can't stand up to their leader - Rush Limbaugh. Just hours after it was reported that Tedisco said, "Rush Limbaugh is meaningless to me," Tedisco quickly apologized to the de facto Republican leader. Tedisco follows in a long line of Washington Republicans who are too afraid to stand up to Rush Limbaugh.
"It's just like Jim Tedisco, a career Albany politician, to talk tough and then whimper an apology to Rush Limbaugh even though Limbaugh wants President Obama to fail during America's economic crisis," said Jennifer Crider, Communications Director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "Tedisco once again showed his true colors: he won't stand up to Republican leader Rush Limbaugh, he certainly won't stand up for Upstate families worried about keeping their jobs."
