Obama made Rush Windblow a happy camper last week when he told Republicans that “you can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done”. I’m dying over how many different ways that statement can be taken out of context – my favorite so far is Limbaugh’s contention that Obama is “more afraid of him” than he is of any other person in the Republican party. Afraid – uh.. don’t think so.

So what was Obama saying? Well – I think the blowhard did get one thing right when he asked “What does that say about our party?” (Note: “Our” means “their” in this case.) What it says is that Obama recognizes that most of those opposing him in the House are taking their talking points from the distorted views presented by Limbaugh and his cronies. If you’re going to listen to the twisted context and outright lies and base your thinking on the hateful, discredited garbage coming out of his mouth, then you’re not going to get very far with Obama’s administration. In short, he put the House Republicans on notice – look at reality, folks, not delusions floated by self-important blowhards.
