President Obama Warns Repubs To Quit Listening To Rush Limbaugh
"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

1. Misleading headline, courtesy of the Murdoch Spin Machine.
Obama told Republican Congressmen that they couldn't only listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to accomplish anything in a Democratic-held Congress with that kind of a world view.

The RW spin on this is "BIG BROTHER OBAMA WARNS AMERICAN PEOPLE AGAINST LISTENING TO RUSH LIMBAUGH."

4. It wasn't all that many years ago that a feller like obama guy
wouldn't DARE to refer to a WHITE MAN in that disparging manner!

Oh, how the times have CHANGED! (I'm loving every bit of that CHANGE!)
