“If we don’t get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election.

I like the sound of that. I really do.

You can't just read the NYT and get things done.

Do not let them dominate that ground. The nerve.

You can't just watch Chris Matthews and get things done.

One prong of the Great Unifier's plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan.

Commit this to memory.

This is part and parcel of Obamadamadingdong's ongoing, never-ending, bait-and-switch campaign strategy.

One more thing, Byron. Your publication and website have documented Obama's ties to the teachings of Saul Alinksy while he was community organizing in Chicago.< Here is Rule 13 of Alinksy's Rules for Radicals:

"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."


Rush is hip to yo' game, Obama. HAHA!

What Rush is missing is that it isn’t enough for the GOP to simply oppose 0bama’s stimulus.

The GOP has to present a *popular* alternative.

If we can’t do that, then we’ve got to go along with the only (popular) game in town: 0bama’s.

Otherwise, we’re the new Whigs (no matter how tough we talk to ourselves).

Actually, I think Obama make a big mistake injecting Rush into this. Seems the Republicans were just raising reasonable questions concerning all the pork in his plan.

This episode makes Obama look like a small minded poser, and yes, as most have been saying, an empty suit.

For many Americans, the ENTIRE POINT of the ‘08 election was to be part of the novelty of electing the first black President.

That accomplished, the novelty is wearing off. Quick.

Can the target (true conservatism, here being given the persona of Rush Limbaugh) avoid destruction if it is aware of the tactics being used?

Is there an effective antidote and counter?

Take on Rush? Saul Alinksy idea may not work out that well. Rush is going to crush Obama. This is going to backfire big time and Rush is going to grow his radio audience by 100% no matter what happens...

Obama's plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR's New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts. It would allow a majority of American voters to guarantee no taxes for themselves going forward. It would burden the private sector and put the public sector in permanent and firm control of the economy.

I believe Obama's plan is beyond FDR, who socialized part of the government. Obama wants to fully socialize what's left; if they don't comply, they will be litigated off the continent.

At least FDR had a war and recognized the enemy as the enemy. Obama is hoisting the white flag to terrorism while posing Limbaugh and his republicans as the enemy.

They are two different presidents.

You're spot on with that comment. Unfortunately, I know a LOT of people who voted for this loser, and no one can give me one reason why other than, "He's not the same old white guy we've had in power for 200+ years."

No, he's different, all right. But I don't think Communism is what any of them had in mind.

Rush again makes good points, but he is wrong in justifying the Merril Lynch expenditure of $1.2 million of TARP funds for redecorating offices under the guise of providing jobs.

That was taxpayer money appropriated (stolen) by the government and given to Merril Lynch with no oversight. In essence, Rush, who preaches that the private sector and the taxpayers should determine how they spend their own money, is instead approving the government deciding how the taxpayers should have their money spent.

If taxpayers were given the vote on how $1.2 million of their money should be spent, it sure as hell wouldn’t be for redecorating and $60,000 rugs for Merrill Lynch corrupt executives who just stole their retirement funds.

Come up with a better example Rush. Or send me a Freeper mail and I will instruct you in logical argumentation.

Obamawama is an empty suit with no power except that given to him by those he sold his soul to for the office of POTUS.

He read what is put in front of him and is the target.

If he has an opion about anything it will be used if the powers behind him say it’s ok.

When he becomes a danger to the reelection of the thieves in washington, they will cut his ba**s off and feed him to the wolves.

Such is the future of an empty suit who sold his soul for his 15 minutes of fame.

Do I feal sorry for him, I think not. I feel sorry for the the pain of those who are affected by the real power who control his ever word, deed and action.

Obama, "I'm um worried uh there will um be uh counter revolution. There is (Craig what did you decide was the best word? evidence?) ummmm "evidence" that the Republicans will go grass roots and realize the nation is umm smarter than we thought."

Craig and Hilary and of course me, we decided that uhh you ummm are not really the voices of conservatism. We discussed it and they uhh I mean me, I uhhh.....(silence for 30 seconds) Rush is a terrorist and a racist.

And now ummm.... We I me we will ummm will declare an end to the War on Terror, release all terrorists in custody, criminalize the military, and tax & spend our way into prosperity creating ummm (what we say the number will be today ? 15?) 15 billion new jobs.

No real substance in Obama’s claims that the GOP shouldn’t listen to Limbaugh. Just bumper sticker partisan rhetoric. Limbaugh’s response however contained actual substance ie. the democrat power grab disguised as a trillion dollar ‘stimulus’ bill. Excellent response Rush!

I understand your point, but I also understand Rush's. He is using the absurd to illustrate absurdity. The very Congress that gave Merril Lynch the money, with no strings attached, and no guidelines on how to use that money, is not crying that Merril Lynch spent money on redecorating.

Obama is in the process of playing Limbaugh for a ‘gag man’ to his Marxist initiatives, as a way to create deeper division in the nation to be exploited by the Rhambo style of politics. Limbaugh will serve Obammy’s purpose quite nicely since Rush is clueless to his own egomania. Within a year, Obamam will have Rush Limabugh on a nose ring to be yanked whenever Obammy needs a distraction.

Rush Limbaugh is single-handedly saving our nation from total socialist ruin. He completely nails Obama on these points. Why mention Rush at all? You didn't see Bush scream about Olbermann did we? Because Rush has completely exposed Obama for what he truly is and his agenda. This "stimulus" is all about securing Democrat power forever.

But watch what happens. As Rush said, there will be some Republicans who are going to denounce Rush and cooperate with Obama in the spirit of bipartisanship. We can't let this happen.
