Conservative Talk Radio is scaring Obama!

To the 58 million American voters who've refused to join Barack Obama's creepy cult, these are difficult times. With the mainstream media eagerly awaiting their Dear Leader's orders, independent-minded citizens are left with few places to turn as they race to save the country they love.

One non-believing medium their Messiah has yet to dismantle is talk radio, where Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have been pounding away at Obama's hollow rhetoric and empty promises. During the course of the campaign, the King Of All Egos went after the FOX News Channel host by name, but now he's aiming squarely at his most outspoken foe: El Rushbo himself.

From the New York Post:

WASHINGTON -- 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.

One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts.

"There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats," the official said. "We shouldn't let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done."

That wasn't Obama's only jab at Republicans today.

In an exchange with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) about the proposal, the president shot back: "I won," according to aides briefed on the meeting.

"I will trump you on that."

Beyond the absurdity of a Democrat barking orders at his political opposition, he's especially foolish to air his fear of Limbaugh and talk radio in a public setting. Now, what was long suspected by conservatives has been verified by the man himself.

The timing was no coincidence: after a rocky first week in office, the Obamists are also faced with a resurgent Fox News Channel, where ratings have been climbing since the moment he took office.
And after a wildly successful fall ratings survey, talk radio is looking forward to record numbers with the installation of the Obamists.

Obama's words are also perfectly timed to meddle in another big battle underway right now: the race for leadership of the Republican Party, a fight that pits conservative grassroots supporters against traditional, elitist blueblood interests.
emember the mushy moderates who were claiming Rush was ineffective and overrated? If that were the case, then why would Obama be attacking him by name?

After a rough start for the Obamists this week, the last thing they want is a viable, effective opposition movement. Rush, Sean and others provide hope that America can be saved from this budding dictator and his cultist followers.

But as the new regime oversteps its bounds, it is far more likely to elevate talk hosts to heights they've never before seen, proving Obama is truly a rank amateur.

Here in local talk radio we are finding our listenership is increasing by huge degrees. The latest ratings show our audience has doubled since the last period. People know where they are getting the truth and they are loyal to our advertisers. We are experiencing growth in a "down" economy.
I believe much of that is due to Providence, but also to a mentality here locally and probably Nationally, of "circle the wagons". Listeners are listening, advertisers are advertising and the two are meeting like never before in my 25+ years in the business.

So take heart Conservative, unless the Messiah shuts us down with the "Fairness Doctrine", we shall be the "voice in the wilderness" for the next four years!

Rush is qualified for prison, Ted. And that's according to his own statements on the issue of drug abuse....why does anyone actually believe what that guy says? He lives in a $20 million house and is the exact kind of elitist he preaches against. I won't even comment on the sillines that is Hannity....

And I'm all for the market dictating what kind of radio is on the air. But I would like to see some honesty attached to it. But that's just the good and decent human being talking...

Anyone who is fans of Hannity would really like a film called "This Divided State" about his battle with Michael Moore at Utah Valley State College. It's very entertaining...

Matt, tell me why then, is Obama so obsessed with Rush that he would name him directly the way he did?
I would assume then, that Rush is more relevant than liberals think he is.
I am not a huge Rush fan, believe me, I think his RX drug problem was brushed under the rug, but, Barry seems to have a real problem with Conservative Talk Radio, and if the listeners to that radio are a threat to him, he will shut it down. That is not "fairness" that is vindictiveness.
I am more of a Glenn Beck fan and he is more Conservative than Republican and that I like.

I don't know why he would validate Rush by naming him specifically. I suppose it's the first of many mistakes he will make as president. I would hope he doesn't limit the free speech of any radio. Even though I;m not a fan of any one-sided radio, I think people like Rush, Hannity, et al., need to be held accountable for the lies and misstatements they often make. And I, too, am a conservative but not at all a Republican. Isn't it nice to agree on some things?
