RUSH LIMBAUGH RESPONDS TO OBAMA: “One prong of the Great Unifier’s plan is to isolate elected Republicans from their voters and supporters by making the argument about me and not about his plan. . . . Meanwhile, the effort to foist all blame for this mess on the private sector continues unabated when most of the blame for this current debacle can be laid at the feet of the Congress and a couple of former presidents. And there is a strategic reason for this.”

Plus this: “600 private jets flown by rich Democrats flew into the Inauguration. That’s fine but the auto execs using theirs is a crime? In both instances, the people on those jets arrived in Washington wanting something from Washington, not just good will.”

And a Saul Alinsky quote.

UPDATE: Don Surber:

President Obama is willing to talk to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions. But Rush Limbaugh? “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” America, we have met the enemy and he is some fat guy in Florida.

Plus, from Tom Maguire:

Why shouldn’t Republicans listen to Rush? Consider the latest WaP/ABC poll with this buried gem:

19. Generally speaking, would you say you favor (smaller government with fewer services), or (larger government with more services)?

The answer, it turns out, is that even in the current environment, post-Katrina and in the midst of the worst economy since the last bad economy (OK, 1982), 53% of the respondents plumped for “smaller government with fewer services”, in contrast with 43% backing expanded government.

Read the whole thing.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Heh. “Of course you know one of Rush’s comments will be: ‘If the Republicans had listened to me, you’d be sitting in Roland Burris’s seat, Obama.’”
