Rush Responds To Obama

Rush Limbaugh has a good response to Obama. An excpert from Rush's brief conversation with Byron York:

To make the argument about me instead of his plan makes sense from his perspective. Obama's plan would buy votes for the Democrat Party, in the same way FDR's New Deal established majority power for 50 years of Democrat rule, and it would also simultaneously seriously damage any hope of future tax cuts. It would allow a majority of American voters to guarantee no taxes for themselves going forward. It would burden the private sector and put the public sector in permanent and firm control of the economy. Put simply, I believe his stimulus is aimed at re-establishing "eternal" power for the Democrat Party rather than stimulating the economy because anyone with a brain knows this is NOT how you stimulate the economy. If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of this TRILLION dollar debacle.

He is absolutely correct. Obama wants to take a polarizing figure like Rush and essentially say to America that if you're against this spending bill, you're just like Rush Limbaugh. (But of course, they would also be right.)
