This is what President Obama accurately said earlier in the week. Of course Rush would say that he's not necessarily trying to get things done. With a Democratic Congress and President he'll settle for keeping bad things from getting done. That said it does let Rush play the victimization card, and for his fellow conservatives to play it on his behalf.
David Limbaugh, I suppose, has more of a reason than most to jump into this fray, being Rush's brother and all. And he does so in his latest article, hilariously.
Obama is savvy enough to realize he can't eliminate all dissent. But he's enough of an Alinskyite to know that marginalizing and demonizing his strongest opponents could intimidate the fainthearted into supporting or withholding criticism of his policies and increase his chances for success.Poor Rush; the man who's spent decades trying to destroy Democrats at every opportunity is now the subject of Presidential criticism.
Perhaps Alinsky would couch Obama's strategy in different terms, but it is essentially a divide-and-conquer approach. Make no mistake: The goal is to single Rush out and pick him off.
