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.
While discussing the stimulus package with top lawmakers in the White House's Roosevelt Room, President Obama shot down a critic with a simple message.
"I won," he said, according to aides who were briefed on the meeting. "I will trump you on that."

Note to self - check election results - see if Obama was listed under God or King. I was sure it said President of a Republic......
This is surreal. In a very bad, bad way.
God, I was hoping he wasn’t a Pelosi idiot..... well, looks like his handlers are no longer in charge.
4 years, that is all he will get. Time to dig in and give him no help at all.
Failure.... my name is Obama
Given the tone of a few recent threads, it seems that some FReepers agree with Zero.
But listening to “Reverend” Wright, Bill Ayers, and Bernadette Dorn is just fine, eh?
Or Keith Olbermann, for that matter.
Based on this conversation alone, any Republican who submits to Barak Mugabe should be skinned.
Last time I checked members of Congress are elected, too.
This made me laugh. Hard.
“Dig it!” THAT Bernadette Dorn?
The one who thought it was cool to murder a pregnant woman, her baby, and then eat dinner by the hung corpse?
This all feels like a very very bad dream.
Who the hell writes headlines these days?
Illiterate retarded monkeys IMing each other?
Obama, you're a racist.
Four days in office and already Rush has gotten under his skin. What happened to all the cool?
No, the election is over, he is sworn in, now the real Obama comes out of the closet. Think Chicago - think of his known associates and you will see his actual personality begin to unfold.
I only wish that GW Bush would have told the RATS to go cram it early on in his administration!
This Bush “we all gotta git along” crap was what caused the Pubbies to lose Congress, the White House, and extended Iraq for an added four years.
So Barry Zer0, bring it on! Hopefully the Pubbies will meet you head-on! I know that Rush is poised to meet you one-on-one.
Who in Congress is willing to meet this poseur face - to - face??
what is surreal- that hussien is saying this crap or that the stupid GOP is taking it laying down???
when is someone going to bring up the fact that almost the same exact number of people voted against hussien last November as those who voted against Bush in 2004??? why doesn’t the GOP throw that back in dear leaders face???
what’s this BS about hussien being a unifying force???
