ALERT: Rush Limbaugh Victim. Scared, Insecure Republican VICTIMS Sound Off about Their Celebrity Idol.
For a confident bunch of “pull up your bootstraps” “do it myself,” independent conservatives, they sure are a needy bunch of whiners. Look at how they protect their helpless multi-millionaire from the slings and arrows of the liberal left, and their “boy” in the White House. Never missing a chance to blame someone else for having an opinion about their failed ideological leanings, the story went something like this:
Newsbusters.org: The Drudge Report blared the New York Post report by Charles Hurt that President Obama told the Republicans in Congress that they should go along and get along, and stop listening to Rush Limbaugh: "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." Let’s imagine that Obama went to a black audience and suggested to them that if they wanted to make their way in America, they should stop listening to Al Sharpton’s radio show, because it’s too divisive. How long would the media ignore those remarks? This is also a distinct signal that Obama could be serious about imposing a Censorship Doctrine on talk radio.
Ooops. Wouldn’t “a censorship doctrine” also affect liberal talk radio? Also, no racist would ever bring up the issue of race in a completely irrelevant way like Newsbusters, right?
At Alan Colmes’ Liberaland.com: Later the White house clarified: “There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats. We shouldn’t let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done.”
Limbaugh, being the showman he is, offered how he hopes Obama fails, in spite of his anti-left tirade in 2006 when he said, “I’m getting so sick and tired of people rooting for the defeat of the good guys.” Personally, I feel Obama should ignore the right-wing loudmouths. He only gives them publicity, credibility, ego gratification and a false sense of importance by acknowledging them.
And this Posted comment by Eric: Regarding “Obama WILL lose the fight to silence Limbaugh!” POSTED BY JERRYSROLLIN.BLOGSPOT.COM, what fight? You insane conservatives always do that. Every time someone talks about the disgusting bile and fear-mongering and lying that goes on right-wing radio you all start going on about being silenced. This was a request to not partake in obvious partisan political media to a very specific group.
At adisgruntaledrepublican, this comment about his nut job ranting:
As for President Obama's point, I totally agree. The quote actually says, ""You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." Emphasis added for effect. Sometimes reactions are based on pure projection onto the speaker to read into their quotes in the worst possible light. It makes me mad....
Amen. Just call them the "blame Americans first" crowd.
