Limbaugh fires back: Guess Obama doesn’t like being ignored


In an interview aired Friday on CNN, President Obama said some Republican lawmakers tell him they’re afraid to speak out against a government shutdown because they fear a backlash from talk radio leader Rush Limbaugh and the tea party.

“I’ve made this argument to my Republican friends privately, and, by the way, sometimes they say to me privately, ‘I agree with you, but I’m worried about a primary from, you know, somebody in the tea party back in my district,’ or, ‘I’m worried about what Rush Limbaugh is going to say about me on the radio. And so you got to understand, I’m — it’s really difficult.’” Obama said.

Well, El Rushbo took to the air later in the day Friday to scoff at the idea that the president sees him as one of the biggest roadblocks to Congress getting anything done, calling Obama a “broken record.”

“I think that nobody’s listening to Obama anymore. I don’t think he commands nearly the attention or the interest that he does, and so what he’s doing is going back to the greatest hits.. He recycled this idea that the Republicans are not cooperating with him because they’re afraid of what I’m going to say about them.

“The Republicans are not listening to me!” followed up on Obama’s comments with a post titled “Confirmed: Obama still thinks ‘but Rush Limbaugh!’ is a winning strategy” that generated some predictable responses.
