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.

Can’t wait for Rush on Monday .. should be a great show!
Take your “warning” and shove it, Obama.
And so it begins...
president of the usa feels threatened by a talk radio host
Excuse me there is a thing called free speech...
And it begins, Barry can not win this one.
Free speech you dumbass.
Obama will show up at a Battle of Wits with Rush unarmed.
Bill Clinton whined about Rush, and THAT didn’t get him very far!
Ha, GO RUSH! He’s gotten under Lord Obamination’s thin skin!
Someone sounds a little scared! Bring it man child!
He’s got all the Clinton stooges, may as well just rerun everything.
Hope Rush’s tax returns for the last thirty years are neat and tidy.
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.
Odummer can’t seem to get the hang of the free speech, free country, liberty thing can he.
Ain’t it that truth? He’s AFRAID of the truth......and it spreading to his zombies under his control.
God bless this new post-racial America.
Neither can I, but that's a problem for me and my employer.
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!
Odummer knows how to pass the fairness doctrine.
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..
He is Carter II four days in...a micro-managing, petty grudge-carrier showing his Chicago political ward-heeler roots.
This is the sort of stuff that will never get printed on a Sunday or Monday morning.
Friday night headline...ha. It will be over in the morning, for most, but it appears that the gauntlet has been thrown. Lets see what happens.
Did Obama name the big things that unify us?
Foreign abortions? Closing Gitmo? Favoring Hamas? Trillion dollar deficits? Money for Barney Franks to spread around Boston?
Rush truly is the last man standing.
Ahhhhh bipartisanship at it’s best. /sarc
Of course, you realize, DIS means war!
Sorry — if I could figure out HOW to put a picture of Bugs Bunny here I would!
Monday will be FUNday listening to Rush, LOL!
“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,”.......
Four days in office and Obama is already spooked by the ‘vast right wing’ talk show hosts......
Rush, I’m with ya. Shove it, BO.
Well, he dogged on Sean Hannity........now it’s Rush’s turn. They have, OBVIOUSLY (THANK THE GOOD LORD IN HEAVEN) touched a nerve. Hopefully a CLUSTER of ganglion.!
Who is this leftist jackass listening to? Alan Colmes?
EIB’s rating share is going to skyrocket with all this good Presidential endorsement.
If the President of the United States is afraid of Rush Limbaugh, then what of the idiot in Iran? Or Putin?
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.
Is there a warranty for this piece of . . . ?
Caligula is so brave he waited until AFTER RUSH’S SHOW ON FRIDAY to make this threat. HAHAHAHAHA.
Bring it on, baby. BRING ... IT... ON.
Buy stock in popcorn.
4 years of O'Bambi will be a breeze for Rush...
BRING. IT. ON. BARRY.
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.
I guarantee that this is Zero’s hint that he is going to try and shut Rush off with the Fairness Doctrine.
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 DLCs 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
swallowed that SOB, Hook, Line, and sinker, he did.
Amazing how easy Obama takes the bait. If Rush can fluster him what is Putin gonna do to him?
Now I’m going out of my way to listen to Rush!
And I just heard on WMAL radio here in DC that, this morning, a Dem Congresscritter introduced legislation to abolish the 22nd Amendment.
I almost exclusively listen to the pod cast. But 12:05 on Monday I will be in my car with the radio on.
“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.
