“The point here is to take me out of context, what I said, attach it to the Republican Party in general because President Obama wants no debate. President Obama wants no discussion.” – Rush Limbaugh
Anytime I can work Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove into the same blog post, it’s a good day to be me.
This has actually been something that has been burnin’ my biscuits since the day after Inauguration, because it appears part of the Obama Administration’s game plan is to sell their agenda by either taking out of context or straight up lying aboot what Republican’s stay and what they’re position is. And when everyone in the media except for Fox News and Joe Scarborough not only refuse to call them on it but help them get away with it…who can blame them?
Seriously, what do you think will be the top talker of the day: the dow falling under 7,000 for the first time since 1997 (and close to 3,000 points since Dear Leader’s anointment), or the faux feud between Rush Limbaugh and Michael Steele?
Karl Rove, your hero and mine, wrote aboot this recently. Here’s one of the examples he gave from a recent Dear Leader speech…
Mr. Obama also said that America’s economic difficulties resulted when “regulations were gutted for the sake of a quick profit at the expense of a healthy market.” Who gutted which regulations?
Perhaps it was President Bill Clinton who, along with then Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, removed restrictions on banks owning insurance companies in 1999. If so, were Mr. Clinton and Mr. Summers (now an Obama adviser) motivated by quick profit, or by the belief that the reform was necessary to modernize our financial industry?
Perhaps Mr. Obama was talking about George W. Bush. But Mr. Bush spent five years pushing to further regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He was blocked by Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd and Rep. Barney Frank. Arriving in the Senate in 2005, Mr. Obama backed up Mr. Dodd’s threat to filibuster Mr. Bush’s needed reforms.
Now, I know some of you might find this blog post trolling for things to insult and complain aboot in the comment section, and will say, “How is that any different that what the Bush Administration did?” You know what, you’re right. It is not different.
Barack Obama is just more of the same as George Bush.
