Why Republicans oppose cap and trade
Cap and trade is the reference to carbon emissions caps and carbon credits legislation being pushed by the Democrats and the president. The Republican Party is opposed to this legislation because it would raise taxes on energy and harm businesses.
Voting in mid-term elections
Mid-term elections strongly influence the rest of the president's term in office. If his party is in the majority in the House and Senate, then his agenda will breeze through. If not, then he will be a lame duck president very early.

Rush Limbaugh is vilified by the left regularly. The left also likes to try to paint Limbaugh's comments as those of all Republicans, which is a very erroneous generalization. One thing Limbaugh does very well is rile Democrats, and for that reason, I like him.
Republicans Party direction
While the fundamentals of what the Republican Party has stood for still garner support from the base, the party needs to look at the current anti-incumbent movement seriously. It's not just about kicking out the Democrats.
