Obama Pimps For Rush

Using the bully pulpit of the presidency Obama has done absolute wonders, in a marketing sense, for Rush Limbaugh.

President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration.

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package.

Obama seemed to miss that part of journalism that states, 'I don't care what you say about me. Just spell my name right.' I am sure that the venerated Air America would love this type of exposure, especially their 3 listeners and sponsors.

In response to the Obama:

"You know, I'm concerned about the size of the package. And I'm concerned about some of the spending that's in there, [about] ... how you can spend hundreds of millions on contraceptives," House GOP Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) later said.

"How does that stimulate the economy?"

It has not been confirmed that this is the same room where Bill Clinton discussed stimulation, but it is rumored that Hillary applauded the move by the administration as a village resolution to raise a Republican.
