Limbaugh Calls President Obama a ‘Jackass’ & an “Economic Illiterate” and an “Idiot, When it comes to Capitalism”
Rush Limbaugh calls Obama a jackass, an economic illiterate and an economic ignoramus.
A note to the media and bloggers both on the Left and Right, if what Limbaugh said was vitrioland over the top, what would you call what the US politicians, including the President have said about the American people for the last two years? We just found out today, really? Americans have been called racists and Nazis for not agreeing with the policies of Obama. Democrat politicians have stated that Republicans want people to die quickly. Those who disagree with Obamacare have been called “evil hate mongers”. Now you think the line has been crossed? Spare me!
At what point does political rhetoric turn to disrespectful vitriol? Some are suggesting that we found out today when conservative talk radio provocateur Rush Limbaugh ostensibly referred to President Obama as “you jackass!”
Sorry, but conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh just vented what a majority of Americans and Business people think. There is a reason why only 42% of Americans believe Obama is doing a good job as President while 49% disapprove. His handling of the economy is looked upon as even worse. I would dare say even non-Ditto heads would agree with Rush’s comments. Sorry, but its not too far. We have a MSM who refuses to confront this President and we have millions of people unemployed and collecting food stamps. Enough is enough. If a sitting President can disregard the will of the people and treat them as Obama has done, criticism of his policies is hardly vitriol.
As the economy gets no better, unemployment is heading up and business is sitting on money because of the uncertainty of Obama and Democrats … Obama does nothing to extend the Bush tax cuts. Derision? Sorry, I would dare say many people have said the same or worse, they just don’t have a talk show to vent their views or opinions. But what they do have is a vote this November 2, 2010.
Derision of the president on his program is nothing new, but Rush Limbaugh’s tone today may have struck the ears of regular listeners as particularly disdainful, taking his contempt of the president to a new level.
The nation’s preeminent conservative talk radio host referred to Mr. Obama as a “jackass,” an “economic illiterate” and an “idiot, where capitalism is concerned.”
Remember when the LEFT used to call GWB rigid and set in his ways when it came to Iraq? What’s the difference with this issue? Obviously, nothing Obama is doing is working to provide an environment

“Extend the tax cut to everybody, and you’ll inspire confidence,” Limbaugh argued, saying that added degree of certainty would free business to spend some of the capital they’re holding onto and hire people, “which, once upon a time, we were told, was Obama’s top priority.”
For not getting this, “He’s a jackass. He’s an economic illiterate. He’s an economic ignoramus.”
“And that’s being charitable,” Limbaugh said.
