Video: Another day, another White House dig at Rush Limbaugh

posted at 4:29 pm on March 16, 2009 by Allahpundit

Another one via Greg H. and Townhall. What happened here? I thought the new strategy was to put aside childish things like the Rush nonsense and start explaining to Americans why an almost $2 trillion dollar deficit is actually a good thing short-term. Maybe they saw the new CNN poll and figured there’s a little magic left in their Limbaugh-bashing bag of tricks?

The poll indicates that the vast majority of Americans, 86 percent, hope that Obama’s policies will succeed, with 11 percent rooting for his policies to fail. But when asked if Obama’s policies will succeed, the number drops 22 percentage points to 64 percent.

“One in four Republicans wants Obama’s policies to fail,” Holland said. “But six in 10 Republicans think the president will fail.”

Exit question: Is this the first time he’s taken a shot at Rush without explicitly being asked about him? Pretty soon he’ll be answering questions about Iran with, “Why don’t you ask Rick Santelli? He seems to have all the answers.”

I thought the protocol requires that the White House refer to former VPs by their title — i.e. Mr Vice President (or Former Vice President) Cheney.

I’m quite certain that “cabal” isn’t part of protocol.

Classless, tacky, incompetent, provicial Chicago rubes.

Actually, this is a dig at all Republicans.

I hate CNN… are these people that stupid?

They just don’t get it… we don’t “hope” he’ll fail for any political gain or because we hate him… we hope he fails to PUSH HIS AGENDA on the country thereby ruining it.

It’s like watching my kid about to put the cat into the microwave “hoping” to dry her off… I hope he fails in trying to get her in there because I already know what will happen.

CNN expects us to sit back with our fingers crossed rooting on the kid as we watch the cat explode. “Give his plan a chance to work!”

We want the “attempt” to fail because we know the policies themselves are proven failures… but 99% of the people here already know that… that’s why we’re here!

ronsfi on March 16, 2009 at 4:48 PM

When (not if) Obama has his first real int’l “test” and when (not if) he blows it, then he’ll have no one to blame but himself. That’s why this strategy of creating quasi enemies is such a loser – b/c it can only be used in the short term and doesn’t do anything to bolster O’s cred on anything.

Let’s say that Iran bombs Isreal, Russia invades (and seizes) a former satellite nation, a war breaks out in Mexico – how will Obama answer by saying “well, I don’t know about that but 2 out of 3 Americans think that Rush Limbaugh is a right wing nutjob. And did I mention that 6 out 10 believe that he wants me to fail”. It’s just ridiculous b/c as a LT strategy it’s loser.

volnation on March 16, 2009 at 4:48 PM

Gibbs also said, in answer to another question, those getting tax breaks to put money in their pockets are the “most deserving”.

I find that more troubling than any stupid swipe at Rush (and the Republican cabal)

Love the background laughter by one or two people who are clearly gleeful that there’s a Democrat in the White House who’s free to mock private citizens.

Say what you want about the press, but I think they should be applauded for not cheering everything they hear from Mr. Gibbs. Because you just KNOW they want to, or at least they did at first. Some of them just MIGHT be to the point where they’re going “this guy sounds like a moron, how am I supposed to defend him in my column?”

Man, Gibbs is so unbelievably stupid, it’s just amazing that the guy isn’t too embarrassed to show his face in public. Of course, the same is true for just about everyone in this administration of retards.

And who’s the shameless azz-kisser laughing loundly at Gibbs’ pathetic attempt at a joke? That person needs to be slapped silly (sillier than s/he already is).

ddrintn on March 16, 2009 at 5:01 PM

Rush and Hannity like a school yard child he likes to bait
But if he had any wisdom to go down that road he would hesitate
Even those in his own party who don’t tow his line
Will get hung out on the vine
As Obama’s snake oil starts to be seen through
He will add to his bag of tricks some more venom too
With Harry and Nacy he likes to whore
Wont be forever till more and more know the score
Neville Chamberlain he would never emulate
As he thinks that he thought too small and gave too little too late
If scarin’ folks dont do the trick
His health care system will make you all sick
When it comes to crushing dissent and preaching hate
The Obama team just can’t wait

Personally jd, I think their behavior is calculated and on message. Liberals care about power, power, and more power. Liberals see humans (civilians) in a completely different way than you or I.

I ask this simple question to anyone caring to answer. Would you choose to spend some of your personal time with Nancy Pelosi? A Liberal is a Liberal. They come in many shapes, forms, and colors; however, their brains are cloned.

Keemo on March 16, 2009 at 5:01 PM

Slightly O/T but the markets closed down again. Does that mean the Bush Depression is back on?

txaggie on March 16, 2009 at 5:03 PM

The market rally of last week was (****In my less than professional opinion***** Jonny Liebowitz please don’t take me as knowing anything) a reaction to Buffett pushing changes in mark to market accounting rules. I think the market thought this would happen, but are now not so sure.

Pro change – our old friend Kudlow – mark to market changes will be good for the market and good for the economy.

http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=MWMxM2I2OTEzNmE4ZDg3Yzk4YjRmZDAzYmU3ZTc2ZjA=

Anti-change position, I poorly paraphrase, is that fundamentals are still bad, changing accounting rules will only serve to help hide the toxic assets and further freeze up institutional lending.

In the author’s own words:

Two administrations (Bush and Obama) have attempted to craft a plan to buy bad assets to spur lending and restore confidence. The idea sounds good on paper. The recurring problem is determining how much to pay for the bad assets. Overpay and the taxpayers are left holding the bag. Pay what the market is willing to bear or fair market value and the banks will have to take a loss. If the taxpayers or private parties pay what the market will bear it creates “accounting problems for the banks”. “Accounting problems” is the politically correct way of saying “solvency problems” for many banks. If a buyer pays what the market will bear for the securities, then it will become clear many banks are indeed insolvent or lack sufficient capital. If that were not the case, then the government would have started buying bad assets a long time ago. The banks now want to change fair market value accounting rules to hide their insolvency and/or lack of capital from the public. Changing accounting rules will put us in the express lane to the Japanese “lost decade” scenario. Changing accounting rules will give us banks that appear solvent and well capitalized on paper, but will be insolvent and/or undercapitalized in reality (a.k.a. “zombie banks”).

http://www.ciovaccocapital.com/sys-tmpl/petrocks/

Interesting speculation. Cost of toxic asset clean up is not the only barrier, but of course, Rush Limbaugh is the real problem. ; ))

right2bright on March 16, 2009 at 5:10 PM

Yawn… Sometimes I wonder if I live in the matrix. I think that there may be a bug in the program that is causing stupid to be replicated too fast. (like a virus perhaps?)

Too many people who should be saying important and valuable things are too busy drooling and stammering over the most inane and trivial of people/topics.

I am guessing its too much to ask that the administration respond to the press in any sort of professional manner, even when they are so obviously on the ruling parties side. To respond to a critique from the former Vice President, must the answer be so flippant and even condescending? I am appalled at the overt laughter among the attendees as this vapid attack is launched.

Obfuscate, incite, blame, attack, divert, and lie. These seem to be the tools of the political trade that are most effective and celebrated openly in our society.

P.S. the above sentence is relevant for either major political party.

P.P.S. Pinch me if anything changes. Like that will ever happen.

It’s time for this White House to bring in the big guns.

When is TRACY FLICK going to join the administration. She’d make a better treasurer than Geithpuppy.

Slightly O/T but the markets closed down again. Does that mean the Bush Depression is back on?

Yeah; apparently, whenever the O’s administration is distracted by making public statements, Bush sneaks back in to the White House ninja-style and pushes the big red “Recession” button.

It seems like those poor insecure little twits in the White House would have something to do other than trash Rush.

And Obama falls to his lowest net approval rating ever…Soon to be in negative territory, worst ever for a newly elected president.

Thanks Peter Griffin…eh..I mean Robert Gibbs.

Democracy is still an experiment … perhaps this is the fatal flaw in it all.

You’re right.
