PREZ ZINGS GOP FOE IN A $TIMULATING TALK
NY Post ^ | Jan. 23, 2009 | Charles Hurt

Posted on 01/23/2009 6:03:06 PM PST by COUNTrecount

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......

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

This all feels like a very very bad dream.

Geez,

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???

He Won

His name must be attached to every piece of legislation and executive order that results

Federal tax dollars dumped into make-work projects with people standing around holes in the ground?
THE OBAMA STIMULUS PACKAGE

Tax rates go up?
THE OBAMA TAX INCREASE

Still unemployed a year from now?
THE OBAMA DEPRESSION

Illegal aliens clogging hospitals schools and govt services?
THE OBAMA AMNESTY PROGRAM

Another surprise attack on Americans at home or abroad?
THE OBAMA INTELLIGENCE FAILURE

Catholic hospitals closed because doctors nurses and other forced by law to perform abortions on demand through the 9th month of pregnancy?
THE OBAMA ABORTION RIGHTS ACT

Mr. Obama, Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. In America, as it is in Cuba ... China ... North Korea ... Zimbabwe ... Kenya

You are dreaming. You think they haven’t read history, either? They will make him out to be FDR, not Carter. No way the MSM lets him take any blame for the damage he is going to cause, and with the power of the Presidency, and a sycophantic press, he will win. I just hope he doesn’t try for a third term. Only US citizens are limited to 2 terms.

After hearing Rush today and his disgust with the Republican leadership both in congress and the RNC, it sounded as if he’s going to give them a little time and if they don’t snap out of it he could lead the revolution to a new Conservative Party. It couldn’t come soon enough for me.

The democrats will ensure that the Republicans will never have control again. Increasing the government payroll through 600,000 more jobs, increasing the welfare state, and legalizing illegal aliens will tip the scales of voters in their favor.

the election is over, he is sworn in, now the real Obama comes out of the closet.

He is showing his true color and it has less to do with race and more to do with believing he is a king! He has no respect for freedom of speech, unless it's his. And he sure likes to insult conservatives, which will make him even more popular with the dumocrats

Hopefully the Pubbies will meet you head-on!

It's doubtful the elected pubbies will meet him head-on. More like bended over...(sorry for any visuals).

Well, every time Bill Clinton tangled with Rush, it always backfired on him as soon as Rush answered his attacks. Barack Obama will soon learn that Rush represents the “truth” - something Democrats cannot handle. Rush is an innocent and honest in his convictions, and those who are not will have their hands burned every time they reach out to try to extinguish his light or destroy him. Obama is AFRAID of Rush - and how does he KNOW what Rush is saying if he isn’t extremely interested - and worried? The truth is powerful.

El Rushbo is getting attention... we need partisanship. I don't want to make Obama successful. I want him to fail. If the GOP won't oppose him, we'll just have to found a new conservative party to do it.

This is a HUGE mistake on obi wa nobama’s part!! We are witnessing the actions and words of someone whose is coming to grips with the fact that he is in over his head and the stress is killing him.

First he lashes out at the press (who got him elected) because they tried to do their jobs (something they haven’t done for years) and asked him a question. Now we have this.

He’s also been prompting Biden on things to say and not say in front of the press.

While the entertainment value is certainly showing up much sooner than I anticipated, it remains to be seen how much worse this will get.

Reagan once gave the party a choice of either standing up for our values or create a new party. I’m real ready for a new party. If the last two elections are any example, it was the RINO’s who got dumped by the Blue Dogs who at least looked more conservative before the elections. As I recall Reagan had warned about that too. This is no time for Americans to let some illegitimate Kenyan Dictator to actually run this Nation.
