During an October 2010 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said: "It's pretty clear the American people expect us to use the existing gridlock to create compromise and advance their agenda. ... They want us to come together [with the administration] after we agree to disagree." Limbaugh was not impressed, saying on his October 19, 2010, program: "There is no more compromising with Democrats than you can compromise with the Taliban! Who in the hell thinks that this can be done? Mr. Issa, what are you thinking?" Later that same day, Issa called in to Limbaugh's program to "clarify what a half hour of an interview turns into when it turns into one bullet line by an author." Issa assured Rush: "There's going to be no compromise on moving to Republican principles. There's certainly going to be no compromise on how the House is run.
