Eric Cantor spent his Sunday morning telling CNN that the Republican Party plans on launching a listening tour.
Said the House minority leader, “What we’re trying to do here today is kick off a series of town-hall forums so that we can get back to listening to the people.”
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh didn’t like that one bit and on Monday said the GOP shouldn’t take such a tactic: “We do not need a listening tour. We need a teaching tour. That is what the Republican Party, or, slash, the conservative movement needs to focus on. Listening tour ain’t it.”
Well, Cantor must have gotten the message, because he told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough this morning that the party’s rebranding does not amount to a listening tour: “You know, Joe, really, this — this is not a listening tour … What the National Council for a New America is, is an opportunity for us to go out across this country to talk about our conservative principles and to appeal to as many elements in our society as we can, and to really talk to them at a higher level.”
