The Republican Party is so paralyzed with fear after the government shutdown that it will do anything to agree to a budget deal, Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday.
"They are paralyzed. The fear of what the media will say and do and report has them paralyzed," Limbaugh said on his radio show.

Despite blows to Democrats and President Barack Obama due to the launch of Obamacare, Republicans are "in shell shock" because of the last government shutdown and fears of another one.
"They are not moved at all by Obama's plummeting poll numbers. They are not moved at all by the problems people are having with Obamacare," Limbaugh said.
"They are literally afraid of one thing, and that is being blamed again for the government shutdown. That was the objective, to make sure there wasn't a government shutdown. And it didn't matter what was required," he said.
Republicans also think "Obama is still universally loved and adored" and that "the country despises and hates them."
Limbaugh pointed out that the sequester cuts, which would ease under the current budget proposal, were a bipartisan deal that had originally been Obama's idea. But, he said, Republicans are "so frightened of being blamed for another shutdown that they gave up parts of the sequester, which had been a hard line on spending."
