PRESIDENT OBAMA TAKES ON RUSH LIMBAUGH IN NEW MEDIA WAR

WASHINGTON -- President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

"There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats," the official said. "We shouldn't let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done."

That wasn't Obama's only jab at Republicans today.

Wow super pointless remark by Obama, man he is just a textbook liberal stereotype.

Yeah dude we really CAN listen to Rush Limbaugh.

That whole “you get your ideas from Rush Limbaugh” thing is just childish liberal talk.

ROFLMAO — and I am sure Rush is too. The little crackpot dictator thinks he is in Kenya.

This is gonna get good. I think I’ll start paying attention to this. Rush is no wimpy weak-kneed RINO. Caligula ain’t gonna know what happened.

But he’s not really “taking on” Rush. Caligula is threatening people who are basically on his side already. The RINOs’ plea is to “don’t hurt me. We’ll cave. Just don’t hurt me.”

Bunch of panty-waists.

WTF does that mean?
How does he know what they listen to on the radio?
Is this supposed to intimdate GOP leaders from interviews with Rush Limbaugh?

Why is the Obama worried about Rush Limbaugh? He has an entire planet to heal now, doesn’t he?

Watch yer back Rush!

O'bambi doesn't want to go there... what a moron.

If he wants to get into a p***ing match with Rush, he's waaay over this head.

Rush is going to eat this up... Plus O'Bambi just boost Rush's Monday's listenership a few million.

Hey, O'Bambi, just ask Dingy Harry what happens when you get into a p***ing match with Rush..

That’s exactly what I was going to say! I’ve been so worried that Rush would also wimp out and drink the Kool-Aid and start telling us we all just had to be nice to that dangerous fool in the WH. But Bambi still recognizes Rush as his enemy - which is a good thing.

The left will eat this up; make up for points lost in appointments etc.

I think we'll see a lot of this over the next four years; there are lots of people who can go under the bus, or into the system, to cover for administration gaffes or any little coup that might take place in the name of bipartisanship.

Know your Enemy - the “PROGRESSIVES”, discusses the enemy in depth:

Literally translated, the phrase PROGRESSIVE means AMERICAN SOCIALIST, and those who are “PROGRESSIVE” employ the whole SOCIALIST arsenal of deceit and violence. A PROGRESSIVE is a man, woman, or child; a tough fighter, with words or weapons, for what he is taught to call the “liberation” of United States of America.

“PROGRESSIVE” also applies to the military and civilian components of the “Democratic Party” . To its deluded followers the “Democratic Party” is the government they serve, but to the vast majority of REAL AMERICANS it is an instrument of terror and oppression manipulated by the SOCIALISTS IN CONTROL OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

The SOCIALIST regime in WASHINGTON DC directs, controls, and supplies the entire “PROGRESSIVE” political and military effort to conquer the REAL AMERICANS IN THE NON-SOCIALIST STATES.

All control, political and military, comes ultimately from the “National Committee of the United States Democratic Party” (DNC), which maps out broad strategy.

In the United States itself, the “PROGRESSIVES” have created a show of legitimacy through the “Democratic Leadership Council” (DLC). The DLC’s central committee sets policy and also is responsible for planning and organization building.

The next level in the SOCIALIST-dominated DEMOCRATIC hierarchy consists of the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE (DNC), which determine agitprop (persuasion and propaganda) policy guidance, and which are responsible for political indoctrination and training.

Within the last 6 years the program of the “Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee” , the “50 State Strategy”,” as they call it, has become a major program. A favored practice is the use of girls, women, and children, speaking as sisters or mothers, to serenade small groups, calling to them to vote “DEMOCRATIC” for their families’ sak

“I won,” he said, according to aides who were briefed on the meeting. “I will trump you on that.”

He will for two years....

I think an attitude like that will even turn off the RINO’s (hear that McCain, Snow, and the rest...)

If Rush had actually come out and endorsed a conservative GOP candidate (which precluded McInsane or any of those other RINOs), we might not be witnessing this garbage coming out of the 0bamunist regime right now.
