Obama Uses Rush Limbaugh as Distraction

Limbaugh's thoughtful response to the new POTUS's remarks about partisanship and the trillion dollar "stimulus package" should be read by all opponents to the "voter grab" the Dems are attempting to make by buying the loyalty of millions of down-and-outers.
It's no secret that the Dem's pitch to minorities in the FDR years was a shameless buy-out of ethnic voters [and later black voters] after the Dems had been the party of racism and discrimination for over a century [Jackson and Native-Americans sent on a "Trail of Tears," for example]. Here's Rush on Obama's attempt to marginalize him and steal a march on sleeping solons of the GOP:
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.

And that strategic reason Rush explains in clear and lucid terms:
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.

Obama was angry that Merrill Lynch used $1.2 million of TARP money to remodel an executive suite. Excuse me, but didn't Merrill have to hire a decorator and contractor? Didn't they have to buy the new furnishings? What's the difference in that and Merrill loaning that money to a decorator, contractor and goods supplier to remodel Warren Buffet's office? Either way, stimulus in the private sector occurs. Are we really at the point where the bad PR of Merrill getting a redecorated office in the process is reason to smear them? How much money will the Obamas spend redecorating the White House residence? Whose money will be spent? I have no problem with the Obamas redoing the place. It is tradition. 600 private jets flown by rich Democrats flew into the Inauguration. That's fine but the auto execs using theirs is a crime? In both instances, the people on those jets arrived in Washington wanting something from Washington, not just good will.

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.

One more thing, Byron. 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."

Rush is the "red herring" and Obama's sneak attack on the private sector, aided and abetted by the witless nitwits in the electronic and press media, continues apace.

As usual, Rush is the prophet in the wilderness, speaking wisdom and decrying the Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds whipped up by the Mainstream Media concerning the present "crisis," which may be simply another low in the peaks and valleys of economic corrections.

When such esteemed incorruptible thinkers as Charlie Rangel, Barney Frank [whose "husband" was runniing Fannie Mae for a while during the nineties] and Pelosi/Reid [Oh yes, let's not forget Chris Dodd of "VIP customer" fame with Countrywide Mortgage!], are in the vanguard of "economic reform," anyone with a job and some assets should watch their wallets.

Rush is the strawman scarecrow keeping the scavengers from pillaging the harvest, such as it is, of our faltering economy.

It is kind of funny to see how threatened Democrats get by Rush. But to get to the point, I feel as if many of Obama's other plans are also counter active to the goal of "saving" our country. The environmental issues are another story, but the main one I see as a huge error is his plan to get wireless internet. As I understand it, he wants to make wireless internet available to everyone, as if it will be a public service. My question, then, is what is going to happen to the Internet providers that employ thousands of people, and that run most of the technology today...
