Apparently the President does not have enough on his hands with the economy and two wars that he feels the need to to take on the #1 Radio Talk Show Host in America. According to the New York Post:
President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.
“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.
One White House official confirmed the comment…
You know, as a conservative, I don’t want Republicans to “get along with the Democrats and the Administration,” I want to to stand up for what is right and what is best for the country. Spending a trillion $ on public works projects is not what this economy needs – we need lower taxes and less government spending.
The Post said the President even told my Congressman, Eric Cantor, during an exchange about the “stimulus” package that “I won, I will trump you on that.” In a battle of wits between Barack Obama and Eric Cantor, my money is on Cantor.
