From ABC News:
In his meeting with the bipartisan collection of congressional leaders Friday, President Obama cited conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh as a symbol of partisan politics.
“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” President Obama said, according to the New York Post’s Charlie Hurt.
A source present in the room, characterized what the President was driving at as “Limbaugh was basically representative of petty partisan politics — the broader point being: if we listen to the partisans and are driven only by our political bases — instead of an interest in getting things done – we’re not going to be able to accomplish the enormous task of passing the stimulus.”
Limbaugh earlier this month said on his radio show and again on Sean Hannity’s Colmes-less Fox News broadcast that he hopes Obama fails.
[…] he told Hannity, “I want him to fail. If his agenda is a far-left collectivism — some people say socialism — as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed?”
Tip of the hat to IamTheJudge at the Big Orange for the Jabba the Hutt idea.
