Forget the Terrorists, Obama Declares War on Rush Limbaugh

President Obama warned Republicans today that they need to quit listening to conservative Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new Obama administration, according to media reports.

In a chilling statement verging on the infringement of 1st Amendment protection of free speech from government intervention, the Fresh Prez said, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is not an elected official, has never run for public office, and has recently stated on his radio program that he is not a Republican.

On Friday's program Limbaugh accurately predicted that President Obama and Democrats would mount an all out effort in an attempt to separate Senate and House Republicans from their voters:
So I think what's going to happen, Obama had a meeting with congressional leaders today, and it's a wild guess, but my assumption is that there's going to be an attempt made to separate elected Republicans in the House and Senate from their voters.

The effort's going to be, "Don't listen to what your voter says. It's not the way this is going to get done. We're not going to get things done up here unless we work together my way."
With this not-so-veiled threat, can we now expect House and Senate Democrats to move quickly to pass so-called 'fairness doctrine' legislation to censor talk radio?

Critics of liberal political methods have long contended that the Left's definition of bi-partisan cooperation on issues amounts to nothing more than an expectation of silent acceptance and capitulation by conservatives and Republicans.

Read it.

After reading all these strange reports about the president, I get the unmistakable impression that Obama, in way over his head, is squirming around trying to find his way.

When Obama effectively ends the war on terror, like he did when he announced the closing of GITMO (without knowing the details of his own executive order and without having a plan to deal with detainees), and then flexes his strength as the most powerful man on the planet by declaring war on junior college drop-out, talk-show host Rush Limbaugh (because of an opposing viewpoint), we are simply watching and waiting for the failure of a president who has quickly reached the level of his incompetence.
