Obama: Stop listening to Rush Limbaugh

From today's NY Post:

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.

In an exchange with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) about the proposal, the president shot back: "I won," according to aides briefed on the meeting.

"I will trump you on that." . . .

This guy is a legend in his own mind. He reminds me of a Mohammed Ali that can't fight. All mouth and nothing to back it up. It'll be fun to watch what happens when he meets an immovable object.

First, we must consider whether we want SLimbaugh as spokesperson even for 'conservatism' because he has mistakenly fused capitalism with conservatism.

That said; what a wonderful opportunity for The Godfather of Conservatism to illuminate the rotten foundations of the US left. Also to proof himself against the 'fairness doctrine' as effective political opposition.

SLimbaugh may be no conservative but he is a better friend than the Blackberry-oligarch Barry the black POTUSBO.

If you listen to Limbaugh, he's more of an objectivist than conservative. Some of his points of view are right from Ayn Rand's mouth...

The libtards fear and loathe Limbaugh as personified by Jon Stewart...

Then again Suzanne Fields notes just how abysmally ignorant the young voters (Jon Stewart's audience) are thanks to what passes for modern education...

Many voters are abysmally ignorant, but who are the most ignorant? Should we worry more about the young voter who believes Hamas can be negotiated with or the old voter who believes that all muslims are ipso facto terrorists? Remember that old voters even in 2008 consistently turnout at higher rates than young voters.

Presumably all you good libertarians are ecstatic with Obama's first executive orders to reduce his own powers right?

I would be ecstatic if he would resign. For some reason I don't see that happening.
