"You can't listen to Rush Limbaugh"

President Obama recently threatened Congressional Republicans saying, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." I guess that probably means Republicans should stop listening to Ann Coulter, Jason Lewis, Michael Medved, Hugh Hewitt, Dennis Prager, Mike Gallagher, Laura Ingrahm, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, and others too.

In other words, when President Obama expresses his desire to work accross the aisle, what he apparently means is that he wants to work accross the asile with Republicans who stop listening to conservatives, i.e. RINO's. Some Democrats even even want to shut down conservative talk radio altogether with their Orwellian "Fairness Doctrine."

Rush Limbaugh isn't about working across the isle. He's about stirring up conservatives any way he can. He's a pompous windbag.

If Obama means that in order to find working solutions you're probably going to have to compromise, back down the rhetoric, and generally try and play nice together then I agree with him. Of course... if that's what he means he might try reigning in the whackos like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and trying to create a more civil climate before pretending that the party with barely any power is actually going to hold up his agenda.

WTF, at least El Rushbo is constitutionally qualified to be President!

Rush Limbaugh was born in 1951 to an American mom "Millie" and an American dad lawyer & WWII fighter pilot in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Since 'President' Obama now wants to silence El Rushbo even before BHO has a chance to re-establish the "fairness doctrine" to silence all conservative talk radio, I've got three questions (but answers to only two of them):

FIRST QUESTION: Who IS the actual and lawful 44th President of the USA?

ANSWER: Joe Biden

Biden was initially the Acting President for at least 5 minutes under either the Constitution’s Article 2 or the Constitution’s 20th Amendment, from 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, having already taken his Oath of Office and before Obama completed his ‘oath’ at approximately 12:05 PM, 1/20/09. Under the 20th Amendment if the President-elect shall have failed to qualify, or alternatively under Article 2 if the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term, being 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, which ability and/or qualification includes that he take the Article 2 oath “before he enter on the execution of his office,” then either the Presidency shall devolve on the Vice President under Article 2 or the Vice President shall act as President under the 20th Amendment. (The importance of the oath in ‘commencing’ an ‘Obama Presidency’ — rather than merely the 1/20/09 Noon time — is confirmed by the re-take of the ‘oath’ by Obama at the White House on 1/21/09 after the first ‘oath’ was NOT administered by Justice Roberts NOR recited by Obama in the words as required under Article 2.)

This is significant because at such time that the Supreme Court finally rules on the merits on Obama’s disqualification as not being an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (clearly he is NOT, on either and/or both of two bases -- (1) BHO refuses to show Birth Certificate to deny Kenyan birth/res ipsa loquitur "action speaks for itself" or (2) BHO admits dad was Kenyan/British, not American, citizen at Jr's birth), Biden’s automatic status (without needing to take a separate Presidential Oath) of being President would be predicated upon four different bases: First, having been Vice President under Article 2; second, having been Vice President-elect under the 20th Amendment; third, having been actual President in the hiatus before Obama took the ‘oath(s)’; and fourth, retroactively deemed President during the full period of the Obama usurpation so that the acts of the Federal Government under the usurpation can be deemed authorized and/or ratified by Biden’s legitimacy.

SECOND QUESTION: Who will be the 45th President?

ANSWER: Hillary Clinton

One must assume that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been aware of all of the above. Biden’s wife recently “let the cat out of the bag” on the Oprah Show that both Biden and Hillary had considered alternatively Veep or Secretary of State, in either case, setting up Hillary to be President on a vote of the Democratic Congress if need be.

THIRD QUESTION: Is Obama an unwitting victim of this troika or a knowing participant?

ANSWER: Not yet determined.

I agree with Kevin. There are radicals out there like Rush or Keith Olberman that are just going to stir the pot and make people just hate each other. That kind of partisan playtime is getting ridiculous.

But just like Kevin said, Obama needs to say the same thing to his side as well.

Dennis said...

I agree with Kevin and Jason. Rush Limbaugh is a partisan entertainer.

But although Rush is an entertainer, he often makes some important points and has some good things to say.

Rush is no less partisan or bombastic than Pelosi, Reid, Franken, Sharpton, Jackson, Murtha, etc.

What is disturbing about this is that President Obama seemed to imply that if Republicans want to get along, they better stop listening to the conservative wing of their own party!

That's reaching across the aisle, Obama-style.

Rush combines serious commentary with irreverent humor.
When a person learns to separate out the serious commentary, they understand that Rush is a brilliant conservative thinker. When a person learns to appreciate the satire and mocking of sacred cows, Rush is extremely funny and entertaining. When you combine the two you have a kind of commentary/entertainment that no one else has ever done or possible will ever be able to successfully perform.

I make no apologies for being a fan of Rush! Dennis’ comment was very good.
