Limbaugh Tops Obama White House Enemies List

In a throw-back to the Machiavellian days of Richard Milhouse Nixon, the Obama White House has a plan to get at conservative radio talker, Rush Limbaugh according to Politico. Threatened by the buzz Limbaugh generated at the annual CPAC conference last week, and by his daily radio broadcast to millions of Americans, partisan wonks in the Obama Administration believe they have struck paydirt with polling data compiled by Democracy Corps, a polling company reportedly run by James Carville and Stanley Greenberg.

The crux of the plan to marginalize the talk radio star and his supporters is to cast the Grand Old Party as the party of angry white males with Limbaugh as its poster child. Exemplifying the outright coordination between this White House and the so-called mainstream media, CNN Political Analyst William Schneider said Rush Limbaugh represents Angry White Men. The complicity of the media to follow the direction of Democrat party bosses couldn't be any more apparent. In comments made to CNN's Randi Kaye, Schneider said he thought Limbaugh's speech was, a very harsh speech. I guess the fact that the Dow Industrial Average is now at an twelve year low because of the policies undertaken by the administration doesn't even register as a blip on the radar of this member of part of the best political team on television, as Kaye describes Schneider.

Schneider's comments about angry white men only serve to validate the observation made by Limbaugh in his speech at CPAC, that liberals don't look out at an audience and see people, they see color and victims and grievances, whereas conservatives only see people endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. Here is part of the transcript of Limbaugh's CPAC speech:

I want to tell you who conservatives are. We conservatives have not done a good enough job of just laying out basically who we are because we make the mistake of assuming people know. What they know is largely incorrect based on the way we are portrayed in pop culture, in the Drive-By Media, by the Democrat Party. Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. [Applause]

When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don't see groups. We don't see victims. We don't see people we want to exploit. What we see -- what we see is potential. We do not look out across the country and see the average American, the person that makes this country work. We do not see that person with contempt. We don't think that person doesn't have what it takes. We believe that person can be the best he or she wants to be if certain things are just removed from their path like onerous taxes, regulations and too much government. [Applause]

We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause] We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause] Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault.

Limbaugh sees an important opportunity in this fight. In an email to the Politico he writes, The administration is enabling me,....They are expanding my profile, expanding my audience and expanding my influence. An ever larger number of people are now being exposed to the antidote to Obamaism: conservatism, as articulated by me. An ever larger number of people are now exposed to substantive warnings, analysis and criticism of Obama's policies and intentions, a ‘story’ I own because the [mainstream media] is largely the Obama Press Office.

While the President and his minions are fighting the battle of Rush Limbaugh, the New York Daily News reports that 55% of Americans say they are either unsure or that they believe the United States is in a depression. Americans haven't seen a glimmer of the hope and change you can believe in promisses they were made in 2008 by candidate Obama. Since the mantle of leadership passed from George W. Bush to Barack H. Obama, the nation's banking and investment markets have accelerated their declines amid announcements of proposed Federal budgets greater than the total of all Federal budgets since the founding of the Republic!

The President appears to believe that by waging a political battle against critics, the economy will settle down and things will begin to right themselves again on Wall Street and on Main Street. No Mr. President, the people who are the engines of the economy, from the Wall Street banker that you and your fellow liberals so malign, to the lowliest shipping clerk toiling away in obscurity at his desk, lack one important element that is lacking in a robust economy; C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E. Confidence in the market, confidence that they will have savings to pass on to their children, confidence that their jobs and their companies will not be wiped away, and confidence in a bright future for the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
