In a conference today at the White House, Obama warned Republicans not to listen to Rush Limbaugh if they want to get anything done. The exact quote was, “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done”. According to a White House official the quote was an attempt to bring up a greater point about “unifying Republicans and Democrats”. I, however, have this sneaking suspicion that the real reason he said that was because Rush royally dissed him during his Hannity interview a few nights ago. (In case you missed it, Rush just said he hopes Obama is a failure. I have a feeling Barack didn’t take that too well.) What’s funny to me about this, is that Rush Limbaugh’s opinion doesn’t affect too many people. At all. I mean seriously, even I think the guys nuts. The only people that listen to him for the “insight” are people that wanted Obama to fail well before Rush Limbaugh ever opened his mouth. But what really bothers me is that if this is an issue of partisanism (Is that a word?) he needs to address both sides. He needs to warn the liberals not listen to Keith Olbermann, because in my opinion he is just as bad, if not worse, than Rush Limbaugh. But we know he will never do that, because Olbermann is on his side. So really all that saying that did, if anything, was make the partisan divide that much larger.
What’s your opinion on this? Do you think Obama should call an emergency press conference to warn the public to beware of Olbermann? Send us your opinion this and it may be featured on the site!
