    White House fires back at Rush Limbaugh

    White House fires back at Rush Limbaugh

    TheHill.com

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won't comment on anything the hero of conservatives has to say and he has a lot to say but the White House on Monday was only too happy to respond to Limbaugh's repeated assertion over the weekend that he hopes President Obama's presidency fails.

    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, who last month blasted CNBC host Rick Santelli from the podium in the briefing room, challenged reporters on Monday to ask Republicans if they agree with Limbaugh's desire.

    "Do they want to see the president's economic agenda fail? You know, I bet there are a number of guests on television throughout the day and maybe into tomorrow who could let America know whether they agree with what Rush Limbaugh said this weekend."


    Look at this...

    Why is the President of the United States even giving a talk show host the time of day?

    Shouldn't he be more concerned with Russia and there laughing at him and stating they would not negotiate on Iran even though we will withdraw our missiles?

    This coordinated attack on an entertainer is rather funny.


    Do you think the Obama camp is making the right choice here? Propelling the 20 million listeners a week talk show host to political foe legitimacy?

    He's scared of Rush Limbaugh, and with good reason.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    At first, I thought it was a foolish thing to do. But now, as it plays out, I think it may have been a brilliant thing to do. I think it has caused a fight in the GOP for leadership. Just look at the conservatives that criticize Rush and then apologize. Rush is their leader. You don't see Rush apologizing to any republicans.

    This looks to me like a divide and conquer strategy.

    If so, a little pre-mature, no?


    And as the economy fails and labor unions are spending money on anti-rush ads. Do they risk blowback?

    I don't know if it's premature. Politics never take a break.

    With any action, there is always a risk of blowback.

    Or missing the phoenix rising from the ashes:

So the way they're gonna interpret -- and really don't tell anybody, this is between us, because I don't want this getting out beyond the show -- the way they are going to interpret what I just did in response to Michael Steele is, "Oh, this is great, this is great! Emanuel's strategy is working great, the Republican Party and Limbaugh are splitting apart, there's a feud, there's infighting." They will miss the whole point, and even if there are any Drive-Bys listening while I tell them the real point, they will reject it because it doesn't fit their template. What happened starting Saturday -- actually, CPAC started on Thursday, but what culminated with my speech on Saturday at CPAC was the reawakening of a huge sleeping giant that is ready to rumble, and that is American conservatism, which is found in the Democrat Party, it's found among independents, and it's found in the Republican Party.


    Guess you didn't hear about that view in the media onslaught, did you?


    I agree with this sentiment, the GOP needs to be shaken up and brought back to its roots.

    Put a few pounds on El Duce and this would be a pretty good retro image of him.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
