In his new interview with CBS, President Obama refers to the "troublesome" talk and "vitriol" of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. "Keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out," Obama says. "It happens often when you've got an economy that is making people more anxious, and people are feeling like there is a lot of change that needs to take place. But that's not the vast majority of Americans. I think the vast majority of Americans know that we're trying hard, that I want what's best for the country."
I asked Limbaugh what he thought about the president's comments. His program's popularity is undeniably soaring now, but has it risen and fallen with economic anxiety -- that is, was he less popular during times of economic security and more popular in times of economic worries? Since Limbaugh has been broadcasting nationally for more than 20 years, there ought to be some sort of pattern, if what Obama says is accurate.
"I have yet to have a down year at the EIB Network," Limbaugh responds. "I and most Americans do not believe President Obama is trying to do what's best for the country. Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people, purposely. I have never seen the media so supportive of a regime amassing so much power. And I have never known as many people who literally fear for the future of the country."
The point, Limbaugh says, is not that listeners are feeling anxiety about the economy, although many undoubtedly are. It's that they are feeling anxiety about the Obama agenda.
Rush is right, as usual.
Rush is right. This regime is not listening to the will of the people!!! I feel we are living in very dangerous times and Washington has turned a deaf ear to us...So now we are yelling, protesting, and making plans to take back our country in the voting booth...
Amen to that.
Great quote by Rush.
OT: During Thursday's program, did Rush mention where he went on his extended weekend trip?
Rush is right. Yeah, the economy is really shaky, but my greatest concern is for what Obama is going to do to our country. After so many years of listening to Wright preach “God D*mn America” and worse, why would anyone think he would do anything that would help our country? And why couldn’t the voters see this back when it would count? Can you get grape juice out of a lemon? Why would people think they could? You’re going to get plain, bitter lemon juice. That’s what we’re seeing now.
Rush is spot-on!
Rush Limbaugh is racist. /sarc
Obama wants what is “right for the country” according to the liberal agenda. Not what is right based on any moderate or conservative viewpoints, but only from the LIBERAL point of view.
The bottom line is that Obama, Pelosi, etc. are too liberal for the mainstream of America as they pursue their agenda. They want this country to be more left than it is.
In spite of electing Obama and Democratic congresses, America overall is a center/right country, politically, socially, and economically.
Obama would know all about vitriol, having kept company with the lovely Ayers/Dohrn couple, and listening to Wright for 20 yrs.
If Obama’s approval ratings keep falling, he will be an anchor on MSNBC.
Bammy, It’s all about your Socialism.
I have seen a bunch. Cuba, Nicaragua, Soviet Union, Venezuela etc.
Tell it like it are, Rushbo!
Limbaugh responds to Obummer: ‘Never in my life have I seen a gimmee gimmee gimmee regime like this’
No. No real mention of it at all. Infact, some of us regular show threaderz were concerned that he sounded down. Unhappy. Not his usual self.
Ordinarily a ‘call out’ from Barky would enthuse elRushbo...maybe this interview happened after the show. I dunno...my mom senses were ‘on’ the MajaRushie yesterday.
