Dick Armey: Rush Limbaugh Is Right About Obama
http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/armey_rush_obama/2009/...
By: David A. Patten
Former House Majority leader Dick Armey told Newsmax in an exclusive interview Friday that he joins talk radio host Rush Limbaugh in hoping that President Obamas efforts to impose a "nanny state" agenda on America will fail.

Asked if he agreed with Limbaughs controversial sentiments, Armey replied, "Well sure. I mean, who wants to see America so many other nations that have gone down this primrose path of thinking government can be the nanny state and provider of all things?" .

In fact, Armey said, "a great many Americans" agree with Limbaugh. But he went on to say that Limbaugh should have been "more circumspect and more judicious" in his choice of words, to avoid being misconstrued.

A quick translation is: 'Rush says he wants the president to fail - Rush hates America,'" explained Armey, who was a chief architect of the Contract with America. "My only comment on Rush is, 'Rush, you know the rules of the game of political discourse well enough to have not walked yourself into that trap.' And by some inference, not to have walked some of us into that trap with him."

2. So much wrong with this, so few ideas. One, he's a 'hot get' at Newsmax,
two, add his voice to all the other rethugs who don't have an independent thought of their own on how to solve this country's problems other than to lambast a man and a party that do.

By siding with limbaugh, Armey surely loses any credibility he might have had.

And who said the name 'dick armey' just about summed up the rethug/conservative party? :D

5. I Remember When a Writer from The Nation Magazine Mentioned a Joke
he or she overheard a Republican say about him:

"What do you call a thousand penises?"

"Dick Armey."

12. Nanny State my ass
Pigs like Armey and their special interest contributors have been at the public trough for so long they think they own it.
We now know where the wealth these bastards have been bathing in has come from. The interest payments on homes by hard working Americans! It is time to feed the engine that drives our economy and cut the fat off that has dragged us down.
