Limbaugh: “I live rent-free” in President Obama’s head

posted at 6:41 pm on May 14, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

While the news of the several latest scandalous abuses of administrative authority was crashing wave-on-wave upon the White House on Monday afternoon, President Obama was otherwise occupied with wining and dining at big-money DNC fundraisers in New York City. Hardly ever absent from the program of his fundraising appearances, of course, are the usual denunciations of the “hyper-partisanship” plaguing Washington and the lamentations concerning the degree to which the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune are preventing him from governing properly — and outrageous misfortune, thy name is Rush Limbaugh. As Allahpundit pointed out yesterday, it’s yet another recycled talking point among the Obama crowd, but Limbaugh had a few follow-up words this afternoon. The Free Beacon grabbed the audio:

He simply cannot get me off his mind. I live rent free in his head. And he is using me as his convenient excuse for not being able to get anything done. He really thinks the Republicans would work with him if it weren’t for me. So he’s telling these Hollywood people — and you gotta understand, they’re sitting there and they’re very sympathetic, and they love Obama, and they want Obama to succeed. I’m the guy who said, “I hope he fails.” So Obama’s sitting there and he’s telling these Hollywood people, “You know, this Limbaugh guy, this Limbaugh guy… If it weren’t for this Limbaugh guy, Good Lord, look what I could get done!” … Now, let’s be honest, folks. Who am I? I’m a guy on the radio. I am your beloved host, El Rushbo. I’m a guy on the radio. The fact remains that the truth of the matter is, by his own admission, I am the opposition to Barack Obama.

No, he doesn’t. No Lefties ever listen to Rush, Levin, etc. on a regular basis. If they did they would end up having to question their statism, plus it would make them feel bad about themselves (can’t have that!).

Obama was at a fundraiser for clueless “1%er” entertainment-types and was just telling them what they wanted to hear. He’s playing them for fools. He was there to make money, so of course he’ll mention people like Rush. Cha-ching….

He said these scandals will be over in about two weeks.

He can’t hijack a thread nearly as easily, when he has to spend every comment explaining how it’s ok, if a liberal acts like a fascist..

but that’s the same thing isn’t it..

Rush’s take was dead on about Obama.. he doesn’t convince compromise or make deals.. he crushes, destroys through illegal leaks the reputations of his opponents.. he simply REMOVES the opposition.. then expects the remaining opposition party to quake in submission..

I now am absolutely certain that the election was stolen…

Between his ACORN approved multiple voters, his ballots found in car trunks, and the smear jobs by his pacs and 501′s.. which seemed to have an awful lot of inside information on Mitt’s tax forms..

They still lied about it’s contents..

But who at the IRS gave Reid Romney’s tax history to distort?

That would make Reid the accomplice in an illegal act wouldn’t it?

I’m hoping he has some retired SEAL’s and Delta on his security team.. they have to be good all the time.. a lunatic just needs to be lucky once.

The pill-popping part is comical out the wazoo, coming from a liberal.

Yes, Rush got addicted to an opiate. You know, something derived from heroin. And he got cleaned up with his own money years ago.

But you liberals are all for taxpayer-funded methadone clinics and free needle exchanges for junkies. You all would freak and scream, “Right wing racism, indifference, and hate!” if the government decided their drug use is no longer anyone’s problem but their own.

Go play Switch, kid. Need a reminder of the rules? Stick one thumb up your a$$, the other in your nose, and wait for someone to yell, “Switch!”

Liam on May 14, 2013 at 7:59 PM

In reality, Obama and Limbaugh are in a symbiotic, mutually-beneficial relationship. Each uses the other to raise money; Obama mentions RL at every turn not because he is afraid of him, but because it gets his donors to open their wallets and shake out a few extra coins. Similarly, Limbaugh makes over-the-top statements like the ones above not for political reasons, but rather to keep his ratings high and thus make more money for himself.

Another thing I have gleaned from this particular Limbaugh quote is that, unlike most people here, he seems to feel that the GOP is committed to opposing Obama’s policies.

Maybe a gerbil or two from Barry’s ‘Man-Country’ days in Chitcago?

Rush has money. You’d think he could afford a better neighborhood.

Ya – can’t be much more than a very Spartan “efficiency” apartment – perhaps along the lines of those Japanese sleeping boxes.
(caveat – not that there’s anything efficient happening in that head)

You’re a fat, bloviated, pill-popping, phony, exploitative, unpatriotic entertainer. nothing more.

NP:

1. He’s no longer “fat”. Look at a recent pic. If you want to compare Mr. Limbaugh to a “fat” person, check out Moochelle or Shillery.

2. “Bloviated?” Come on. “Bloviator, maybe. But bloviated? Yes, you don’t know what that means.

3. Pill-popping? Nah. Former codeine addict, I’m sure. Past tense.

4. Phony. Really? In what way?

5. Exploitative? Like Rev. Sharpton? Tell me where anything Rush has said has resulted in a couple of deaths. Come on. Google it.

6. Unpatriotic? I think one who follows the strict construction of the Constitution to be VERY patriotic. And damned entertaining. I laugh with Rush all the time. When is the last time Obama made you laugh?

Finally, if that is all Rush is, why does the President of the United States feel compelled to mention him as the sole reason he can’t get anything done?

Well, we did elect a community organizer. The one thing about community organizers, they’re really good a agitating, not so good at fixing things. When they’re called on it, the first thing they do is find someone to blame, hence Obama with Limbaugh.

One has to wonder, with all the organizing the Democrats did for the election, how much did the IRS and DOJ enter into that planning? How many states, that DOJ went in and fought their voter i.d. laws, did Obama win? How many ads did Obama keep off TV because the tea party wasn’t tax exempt? I don’t expect any answers to these questions, but the election was close and, as such, every little bit helped.

…you shouldn’t be talking to Barney Frank like that…while you’re plowing him!

KOOLAID2 on May 14, 2013 at 8:28 PM

Rush, call your accountant, the IRS is on line one.

What does Michael Moore have to do with this?

Jomama on May 14, 2013 at 8:29 PM

The comments alone made this thread excellent!
I listen to Rush every day and I am happy to admit that.

redlucy on May 14, 2013 at 8:36 PM

He simply cannot get me off his mind. I live rent free in his head. And he is using me as his convenient excuse for not being able to get anything done. He really thinks the Republicans would work with him if it weren’t for me.

I think this is an “I am Spartacus” sorta moment. We all live rent-free in the rat-eared coward’s head.

Happy Nomad on May 14, 2013 at 8:40 PM

So, Obama listens to Rush every day? That is funny.

birdwatcher on May 14, 2013 at 6:45 PM

nope that is a paid GS10 position .. has to listen to all 3 hours and write
a report afterward …. I hope I can get hired for the job .. maybe even as backup.

conservative tarheel on May 14, 2013 at 8:47 PM

Who’s on the short list for Obama’s Rush Czar?

Jocundus on May 14, 2013 at 8:50 PM

The fact is you probably are stopping some Republicans from working with the Socialist Pig,Rush.Now work your magic on Graham,McCain,Rubio,Collins,McConnell,Boehner and Cantor and we will be okay!

redware on May 14, 2013 at 8:58 PM

Hey NP…and obama is a low life baby killing, lying, never worked a day in his life, race baiting thief…..whats your point…..the jackass symbol perfectly symbolizes those whom you support

crosshugger on May 14, 2013 at 9:03 PM

I live rent free in his head.
Sarah Palin is in there too. It’s probably getting crowded.

myiq2xu on May 14, 2013 at 7:00 PM

Not really. It’s pretty much empty space.

justltl on May 14, 2013 at 9:04 PM

Now, let’s be honest, folks. Who am I?

You’re a fat, bloviated, pill-popping, phony, exploitative, unpatriotic entertainer. nothing more.

nonpartisan on May 14, 2013 at 6:46 PM

Even if what you say is true of him, and certainly most liberals do, then it makes Obama’s claim even more pathetic.

And what is Obama but an emaciated, pot smoking, cocaine snorting, phony, exploitative, unpatriotic, who is definitely not entertaining.

Queen0fCups on May 14, 2013 at 9:06 PM

Rush is awesome.
Were he alive at the time, he would have been a Thomas Paine or maybe one of the Founding Fathers. Seriously.

justltl on May 14, 2013 at 9:08 PM

Obama would have been a goat trying to chew up copies of the Constitution.
