Obama: Don’t Listen to Rush January 23, 2009

And no, I mean this Rush…

Devil Incarnate?  I don't think so...

Devil Incarnate? I don't think so...

UPDATE:  Byron York of the National Review got a direct comment from Rush Limbaugh, seen here:

There are two things going on here. 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. He is hoping that these Republicans will also publicly denounce me and thus marginalize me. And who knows? Are ideological and philosophical ties enough to keep the GOP loyal to their voters? Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.

Secondly, here is a combo quote from the meeting:

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

“If we don’t get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election. But we can’t let people like Rush Limbaugh stall this. That’s how things don’t get done in this town.”

To make the argument about me instead of his plan makes sense from his perspective.  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. Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing “eternal” power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.

Obama was angry that Merrill Lynch used $1.2 million of TARP money to remodel an executive suite. Excuse me, but didn’t Merrill have to hire a decorator and contractor? Didn’t they have to buy the new furnishings? What’s the difference in that and Merrill loaning that money to a decorator, contractor and goods supplier to remodel Warren Buffet’s office? Either way, stimulus in the private sector occurs. Are we really at the point where the bad PR of Merrill getting a redecorated office in the process is reason to smear them? How much money will the Obamas spend redecorating the White House residence? Whose money will be spent? I have no problem with the Obamas redoing the place. It is tradition. 600 private jets flown by rich Democrats flew into the Inauguration. That’s fine but the auto execs using theirs is a crime? In both instances, the people on those jets arrived in Washington wanting something from Washington, not just good will.

If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of the trillion dollar debacle.

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:

A famous quote from Barack Obama today:

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.”

Why not?  Remember, this is from Obama, the same man who went to the last two Daily Kos annual conventions.  The same conventions where they asked people to assasinate the former Vice President, and hoped for the quick death of the former President.  Not only that, but Obama defended those people.  Now he has the audacity to attack Rush listeners?

I will admit to listening to Rush once in a while, though I wouldn’t exactly call myself a Dittohead.  And I disagree with the man quite often.  But when the President of the United States pointedly calls out an entertainer, that says something.  That Rush is a threat to the Obama Administration.  Why the President needs to even worry about a radio personality is beyond me.  And until Obama has the willpower to actively criticize those to the left of him, I am in no mood to listen to him criticize those on the right.  Get your own house in order before you worry about ours.

The real Obama begins to show beneath the pretty vernier. He is an insecure, power-mad demagog, using his new-found power to stomp on anyone he sees as a threat. This is just the beginning. You KNOW this will lead to enactment of the UNFairness doctrine, and eventually outlawing of free speech as we know it.

Thanks ever so much, Main Stream Media. You will be the first to fall, and you deserve it for shoving this monster down our throats.
