It's On: White House Trades Barbs With Rush Limbaugh

In yet another installment of hope that brings real change as we get away from the old politics of divisiveness, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs today sneered at Rush Limbaugh's weekend comments at the annual CPAC conference held in Washington D.C.. The Hill quotes the White House press secretary issuing terse threats to critics of the President's economic stimulus package, daring them to echo on camera the sentiments expressed by Rush Limbaugh at CPAC.

Do they want to see the president's economic agenda fail? You know, I bet there are a number of guests on television throughout the day and maybe into tomorrow who could let America know whether they agree with what Rush Limbaugh said this weekend.

Referring to Limbaugh and the CPAC attendees, Gibbs added, it would be charitable to say he doubled down on what he said in January in wishing and hoping for economic failure in this country...I can only imagine what might have been said a few years ago if somebody might have said that on the other side relating to what was going on in this country or our endeavors overseas,....(the) notion of presidential failures seemed to be quite popular in the room in which he spoke.

Mr. Gibbs seems to have a very selective memory when it comes to what Democrats were saying about the 43rd President of the United States. While George Walker Bush was waging a war against terror on the front lines of Afghanistan and Iraq and maintaing the security of the homeland from another 9/11, Democrats were only too happy to line up in front of cameras and microphones and megaphones to declare the War in Iraq LOST and accuse our troops of murdering civilians, bombing villages and terrorizing Iraqis.

As for the, "he wants the President to fail" meme offered by Gibbs and other liberals who say saddling generations of Americans with Trillions of Dollars in Government debt is the way out of an economic slowdown, Limbaugh says, why in the world do I want what we just described, rampant government growth indebtedness, wealth that's not even being created yet that is being spent, what is in this? What possibly is in this that anybody of us want to succeed? Did the Democrats want the war on Iraq to fail!

In this video, Limbaugh responds to the administration's foray into economic folley and includes an impression of Harry Reid's infamous declaration that, this war is lost in Iraq. Limbaugh also recalls the Dems shameful treatment of General Petraeus, culminating with Hillary Clinton's insulting the General with her willing suspension of disbelief crack made during a Senate hearing while he was testifying on the progress being made in Iraq.

Here Senator Kerry calls President George Bush's policy of staying the course in Iraq a failure and says American troops were terrorizing women and children in the middle of the night.

In this video, Harry Reid calls George Bush the worst President ever and goes on to make one false accusation after another against the President regarding Social Security and Medicare.

Here Congressman John Murtha is confronted by Young America's Foundation's Jason Mattera after Murtha's accusations of Marines committing murder in the Haditha case are proven to be false in a court of law.

Presidential press secretary Robert Gibbs has the unmitigated arrogance to ask, I can only imagine what might have been said a few years ago if somebody might have said that on the other side relating to what was going on in this country or our endeavors overseas? The Democrat leaders in Congress cravenly made it a practice to regularly and shamelessly slander a Republican President and undermine his leadership while he was engaged in winning the war and liberating 50 million people in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their goal in making one outrageous claim after another was to gain short-term political gain at the ballot box. In times past it was said and observed by both parties that politics ended at the shore's edge. Despite our differences at home, Democrats and Republicans presented one front undivided before the world, but the cynical leaders of today's Democrat party threw that honorable notion out the window a long time ago in favor of expedience.
