Stop Listening to Limbaugh!: Obama Clearly Worried

As he talks down the economy Barack Obama is showing alarming signs of pessimism and paranoia. From The Telegraph (U.K.):

Mr Obama has told Republicans in Washington to stop listening to the right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh, risking a new culture war with conservative voters..... After less than a week in office, Mr Obama's presidency is already encountering the very partisan bickering he had pledged to stamp out during his first 100 days....

He... told (Republican House leaders)... to break free of the confrontational mindset epitomised by Mr Limbaugh, the highest paid talk show host in America. "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," Mr Obama said.... His comments followed a blunt attack on him by Mr Limbaugh, who declared on air that he hoped Mr Obama would fail as president because otherwise it will usher in socialism.

What Limbaugh actually said:

"“So yes, I would hope he would succeed if he acts like Reagan. But if he’s going to do FDR — if he’s going to do The New New Deal all over, which we will call here The Raw Deal — why would I want him to succeed? Look, he’s my president. The fact that he is historic is irrelevant to me now. It matters not at all. If he is going to implement a far-left agenda... Look, I think it’s already decided: a $2 trillion in stimulus? The growth of government? I think the intent here is to create as many dependant Americans as possible looking to government for their hope and salvation. If he gets nationalized health care, I mean, it’s over, Sean. We’re never going to roll that back. That’s the end of America as we have known it, because that’s then going to set the stage for everything being government owned, operated, or provided. Why would I want that to succeed? I don’t believe in that. I know that’s not how this country is going to be great in the future; it’s not what made this country great. So I shamelessly say, “No! I want him to fail.” If his agenda is a far-left collectivism — some people say socialism — as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed? “

Clear that Obama's worried? About Limbaugh? You ARE kidding, right? You attribute too much crap out of your imagination. Obama just wants to get stuff done--stuff the American majority elected him to do. Limbaugh just wants to get in the way. His focus is on his big salary and stirring up sh*t, not on bettering the United States of America. He does not live in "our" world. Obama's a cool customer--it's laughable that you think Limbaugh "worries" him.

Obama cannot even prove he's a Constitutionally legitimate president. Of course he's worried and paranoid.

That's Ms. Anonymous to you. Your site left off my name even though I posted it. I guess your site is deficient in more ways than one. And, Bush is the one who's a joke and a fraud--thank heaven he is gone.
