So the left and the mainstream media are up in arms at the comments of Rush Limbaugh suggesting the failure of President Obama’s policies. How dare Limbaugh not support nationalizing health care, vastly expanding the welfare state, likely tripling the deficit of Bush, weakening the military, supporting a suspect global warming treaty, rolling back support of Israel, expanding abortion rights, illegal immigration and an almost unending list of other left-wing social programs that will bankrupt future generations?
Am I to believe that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, television networks and newspapers were striving to support George Bush over the last eight years?
Millions of conservatives disagree with Obama’s policies. Last I heard, we had that right. God knows that the left has been exercising the same position as Limbaugh for years.
To claim Rush Limbaugh to be the head of the Republican party demonstrates the intellectual grasp of Mary O’Halloran as much as it does the power of Mr. Limbaugh (3/4, A-1, “Is Rush GOP royalty?; Limbaugh is the party’s leader, some Democrats think, while Republicans are wary to cross him”). But it has provided the Democratic Party leadership a much-needed distraction from Americans’ close examination of their policies. You know, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
What Mr. Limbaugh should have said was that these liberal attitudes and policies toward governing can no more succeed here than they did in Cuba or the Soviet Union. Whatever relief the Democratic Party may temporarily enjoy now will be short lived, as their wild spending, tax policies and massive deficits in the face of economic crisis work against America over the next two election cycles. They will then pay at the ballot box, as surely as all Americans will pay for these deficits.
Reading Rush Limbaugh’s rants and the ditto remarks of Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, I wonder why they’re upset over President Obama’s plan. Evidently there is a blank spot in their memories of the $700 billion bailout of the banking system that President Bush pushed through Congress last October, with the panic that we had to save the economy. All this occurred without any oversight as to what was going to happen to the money.
Any individual, Democrat, Republican or Independent, wishing that Obama fail in his attempts to stabilize the nation is tantamount to saying the United States should go down the tube because you don’t like our current president. Pitiful!
Rush Limbaugh should be a happy man. He was characterized as “a big fat idiot” in a book title a few years ago, but thanks to his expressed wishes that our new government will fail, he’s never looked smaller.
