President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill Friday that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.
It has become evident this week that the narcissism of President Barrack The Hussein Obama have revealed his closed door preferences and utter intolerance towards any hint of question or criticism of him. So he issues threats.
The first week of The One’s official messiahship has showcased his disdain for a free press to have any access to him. On Wednessday, Obama shunned the press photographers and had his own personal photographer provide the press with ‘properly approved’ photos of Obama’s first day at the The Desk. No press was allowed to record the secret re-administration of the Oath of Office Wednesday night that was bungled on Tuesday afternoon. On Thursday – His highness stopped by the White House Press Room to wave hello, and got agitated and lashed out at those who dared ask His Oneness a substantive question.
I simply have to laugh at the audacity of this guy, the new Dear Leader of the world, to think he can go to A PRESS ROOM, and think no one is going to ask him a question??? Obviously Saul Alinsky and William Ayers did not enlighten Obama that the press is not automatically a state propaganda arm, it often has to be MADE into such a tool.
This lack of access and transparency is not surprising, even though Obama insists his will be “the most transparent” of Administrations. I think we can call this a bold-faced lie in advance based on what we already know. According to Sun-Times columnist and long-time Chicago journalist, Carol Marin, journalists at Barack Obama news conferences have come to realize that Obama pre-picks those journalists whom he will allow to ask him questions at the conference and many of them now “don’t even bother raising” their hands to be called upon.
So much for ‘transparency’. Obama pre-selects his photography, those with access to him and those who are allowed to ask him questions.
And these Liberals think Nixon was an “Imperial President”.
What is behind all of these efforts of ‘control’ is Obama’s intolerance and ability to handle any criticism. But then history teaches that tyrants of men NEVER allow criticism of their ideas, policies or actions. As it was with the world’s tyrannical dictators, so will it be with Obama.
The sycophantic worshippers of Obama can burn effigies of Bush and Cheny and taunt and hiss at them as an exercise of free political speech, but if anyone dares question or criticize The One – then his displeasure is made known, and his admonition is to silence and warn others away from those that dare opine in the negative of Obama or his agenda.
Of course many Conservatives fully expected efforts by this White House and the Democrat Congress to silence talk radio, Obama’s harshest and stalwart opposition. Obama took a step in fulfilling that fear Friday when he admonished the Republicans in Congress to “stop listening to Rush Limbaugh” if they wanted to get along with his administration.
Obviously Obama is not the brightest bulb in the pack, because if he was paying any attention, he would understand that the Republican Party HAS NOT BEEN LISTENING to Limbaugh AT ALL. In fact the GOP Leadership despises Limbaugh as much as Obama does. Beltway Republicans hate Limbaugh and Conservative Talk Radio and have made no secret of it. Do folks forget that Colin Powell, that bulwark of Republicanism made a similar suggestion on CNN back in October? Do the short memories and short weenies in Washington forget that John McCain is no fan of Limbaugh or Talk Radio?
Perhaps if the Liberal GOP Elites running the party WERE LISTENING to Limbaugh – The GOP would not be begging for scraps from the Democrat table and the Marxist Left would not be in control of the government right now.
Facts aside, can you just imagine if Bush suggested that Democrats stop listening to Al Sharpton’s radio show, or Randi Rhodes on Air America if they wanted to get along with his administration? Bedlam would have ensued. But then hypocrisy is a hallmark of the Democrat Liberal Elite and this is what we expect of them. Liberal radio is free expression, Conservative radio is Hate Speech.
Such is the Orwellian society we now exist in.
Rush: There are two things going on here. One prong of the Great Unifier’s plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan. He is hoping that these Republicans will also publicly denounce me and thus marginalize me. And who knows? Are ideological and philosophical ties enough to keep the GOP loyal to their voters? Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.
Secondly, here is a combo quote from the meeting:
“If we don’t get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election. But we can’t let people like Rush Limbaugh stall this. That’s how things don’t get done in this town.”
To make the argument about me instead of his plan makes sense from his perspective. Obama’s plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR’s New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts. It would allow a majority of American voters to guarantee no taxes for themselves going forward. It would burden the private sector and put the public sector in permanent and firm control of the economy.
Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing “eternal” power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.
…If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of the trillion dollar debacle.
…Your publication and website have documented Obama’s ties to the teachings of Saul Alinksy while he was community organizing in Chicago. Here is Rule 13 of Alinksy’s Rules for Radicals:
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
Of course that is what is going on here, and Obama is not the only one engaged in doing this. The Republican Leadership and the Moderates in the GOP are on the same warpath, because they now think it is better to go along with the Marxist makeover of America, than to stand against it. The GOP leadership knows where the power lies, and they will do anything to share in it.
Which is why all we have heard this week is for everyone to unify behind Obama and the Democrats and to ‘See what Obama does before commenting’ crappola.
His High Exaltedness, The One was not finished with displaying his hubris however, as later in the day in an exchange with Eric Cantor (R-VA) about his Pork Spending Bill disguised as a “Stimulus package”, Obama told him point blank ‘I won. I will trump you on that” – which in essence means, “Shut Up, I’m king”.
I seem to recall the outrage of Liberals when Bush said pointedly that he was “The Decider” when defending Donald Rumsfeld from all the calls from the Press and the Pundits for Rumsfeld to resign back in 2006. I guess defending a Cabinet Official from anti-war zealots calling for his head and defending yet another omnibus pork spending bill that affects every American taxpayer and their children, are mutually exclusive.
What has been made clear by Obama himself this week is that he will not tolerate any opposition, any questions, any dissent of his plans which he is adamant are enacted as swiftly as possible, without debate.
Welcome to tyranny folks. Hope you enjoy it.
It gets more “interesting” from here.
