In speaking of President Obama’s address Wednesday on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Rush Limbaugh predicted Obama will “hijack” the occasion to advance his political agenda.
“To take the 50th anniversary of that event and to convert it, hijack it, into something to advance your political agenda, that’s as bad as wedding crashing, funeral crashing that the Clintons are famous for,” Limbaugh said. This is really unseemly, if you ask me.”
In setting up the comment, El Rushbo said: “I have been told privately that people are not happy with what this thing is going to be tomorrow — on the Democrat side and the African-American side.”
Limbaugh said it appears Obama will address the impending budget battle and “attack the wealthy,” according to Mediaite:
The latter a charge he found amusing, considering Obama will be joined by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx, and Forest Whitaker. Limbaugh mocked the idea that these people would stand before a crowd and “claim that they have everything in common with the audience that will be there.”
