Oh, come now. Surely he never said this. Our Barry? Captain Civility?
Since when does The One use juvenile sexual innuendo against his opponents?
“He’s the president of the United States,” Limbaugh told Chafets. “If any president asked me to meet him, or play golf with him, I’d do it. But I promise you that will never happen. His base on the left would have a s–t-fit.”
“How about letting me ask?” Chafets said.
“Go ahead,” Limbaugh said. “Nothing will come of it.”
Chafets writes that he reached out to Obama adviser David Axelrod, “whom I know slightly,” but Axelrod didn’t return calls. Then Chafets spoke to “a very senior Democratic activist with whom I’m friendly” who said he would convey the message.
A day or two later the adviser responded, “Limbaugh can play with himself.” Chafets wouldn’t name the aide or say whether the quote was directly from Obama.
Via Breitbart, here’s the man himself accepting this rhetorical flipping o’ the bird with good cheer. Given Rahm’s reputation for off-color remarks, I’m tempted to guess that this came from him — but then, Rahm isn’t the only one in the White House known for salty comments, is he? Exit question: How much would an Obama vs. Limbaugh round of golf fetch for charity on pay-per-view? Let’s do it, baby. Let’s pay off the national debt.
