Limbaugh: Obama Wants To ‘Eliminate Any Opposition’ So He Attacks Fox News And Me

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Lasher (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Mediaite


On his radio show this afternoon, Rush Limbaugh took a shot at President Obama in response to the president’s New Republic interview in which he partially blamed the conservative radio host and Fox News for partisan gridlock in Washington.

“If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it,” the president told TNR in an exclusive interview.

Naturally, Limbaugh took to the air to mock the president’s statement:

“Obama said to The New Republic he’d get a lot more done without Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. The rest of the media’s in the tank. Everybody else has fallen in line. There is no opposition other than Fox News and Limbaugh. The way it works, and what this all boils down to: the Republicans, everybody knows they want to get along with Democrats. Everybody knows they want to socialize. They want their lives to have meaning, but Limbaugh is the one standing in the way ’cause what happens? The Republicans are simply afraid that I’m gonna criticize them if they do something that is cooperative with the Democrats. And so that’s a problem.”

1. If Limbaugh was a man, he wouldn't hide behind FOX

Or, should I say, if he was Human?

2. Limbaugh desperately trying to be relevant.

 

Sad little man.

Here's a hint Rush. If you want to make headlines, release Marta from the gag order you demanded in the divorce settlement. The secrets she could tell would certainly get you a couple of weeks of press.

It seems to justify his existence.

23. I agree

Obama needs to stay above the fray when it comes to the RW media hacks. They just love it when they appear to get under his skin.

Oba really should just refuse to engage with the likes of Limbaugh and let his surrogates deal with it.

5. Politico - "Rush Limbaugh: 'It's up to me and Fox News' to stop immigration reform"

The hypocrisy and lack of irony from the right is amazing...

http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2013/01/rush-limbaugh-its-up-to-me-and-fox-news-to-stop-immigration-155434.html

Right-wing talk radio host Rush Limbaugh today said that it was up to him and Fox News to stop immigration reform, though he added, "I don't think Fox News is that invested in this."

Limbaugh made his remarks shortly after a bipartisan group of Senators, including Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. John McCain, announced their plans for immigration reform.

"I don't know that there's any stopping this," Limbaugh said on his program. "It's up to me and Fox News, and I don't think Fox News is that invested in this. But I don't think there's any Republican opposition to this of any majority consequence.

"We’ll have to wait and see and find out," he said. "But this is one of those, just keep plugging away, plugging away, plugging away until you finally beat down the opposition.”

6. I object to putting Rush in a taxpayer financed FEMA camp.

However, I'm not opposed to sealing him into a basement with no way to communicate with the rest of the world.

7. Can anybody explain...

... why this asshole is still a public figure?

You mean to tell me there's no dirt out there that would finally put him down?

The fucking guy has been married... what?.. 3 times. None of them will talk for money?

Are there no Dem oppo researchers anymore?

Can't somebody troll a boy past him and see if he'll go for it?

10. Typical bully, turns into a sniveling coward who whines

that he's being picked on when anybody stands up to him and starts to fight back.

Somehow, I think the more he snivels and whines, the more the behaviour is going to be recognized for what it is.

13. Limbaugh is the reason for much of the decline of political discourse in this country

I first heard him in 1992. I thought, "is this guy for real...does he really believe his own bullshit?"

If Bill Clinton hadn't been elected, Limbaugh wouldn't have the career he has today. He made his empire mostly through character assassination of the Clintons in the 1990s.

He, and his clones who followed him (Beck, Hannity) lowered the level of political discourse in this country to slinging shit, hoping some would stick. Unfortunately, all too many people believe what he say as objective truth.

What really pisses me off is how he still portrays the far right as being "under attack" by the mainstream/lamestream/liberal media. He's got a persecution complex.

27. I don't think any of them could BE him, though

Limbaugh has got such a "unique" (cough) combination of ego, on-air presence, his own invented jargon, uncanny knack for making bullshit semi-believable and (yet more) ego, that I don't think he could truly be "replaced."

Not to say that some wouldn't try.

The odious Michael "autism doesn't exist" Savage, the crybaby Glenn Beck and the insufferably whiny Mark Levin might be itching to take Rush's spot, but they just don't have the "mass appeal" (cough) potential that Limbaugh has somehow carved out.

16. Does anyone have a list of the number of Republicans who failed to honor Rush...

All of the Republican politicians over the years who, in a candid moment, said Rush was a problem or wrong, or merely said that Rush wasn't important...


...and were on his show within 48 hours (usually less) backpedaling like crazy. "Taken out of context." "Liberal media twisting my words." In one way or another kissing the ring (or draft-dodging butt) of the man who has been the Republicans' unofficial national precinct captain for the last quarter century.

20. "Opposition" to Lush Rambaugh is coming from the furthest Right...

His numbers are falling, and more RW gassers are blowing blowing even more noxious material into the atmosphere. That is why he is so shrill. He ain't the king of da far right anymore.

know how good he has it. If the President was another person, then he would make no bones about it. He better be glad the President is not me. Just what does Limbaugh think the the Right has been trying to do for the last four years? If was up to me, Limbaugh would be breaking big rocks into little ones.

28. Locking...

There is an earlier thread here on this topic. That thread was locked because it is based on Rush Limbaugh's opinion. We LBN hosts have debated that decision. Regardless, it is clear that this thread is a LBN dupe, so I feel compelled to lock it.
