The President formerly known as President Elect ought to be thankful that Jesse Jackson isn't the one wielding those loppers.

Have you seen Rush lately? The guy's lost a LOT of weight. Whatever one might think of him, he had the discipline to lose all that weight and keep it off.

Whatever happened to Mr Joe Cool President? ONE conservative talk show host has him all tied in knots. Ever hear of President Bush calling out Keefums Olbermann or "Tingle up my leg" Matthews?
Oh, I also like The Chosen One's new definition of 'bipartisanship'. The term now means being willing to "listen" to the other side.

confused on the interpretation... is Limbaugh making Obama become more leftist? I dunno if that's true.

Saw Rush on "Hannity"--thought he looked kind of bloated. Not that I care--his weight has nothing to do with who he is or what he thinks. Boortz makes a big deal about weight--but I expect that head to head, Rush would eat Boortz's lunch (no pun intended).
The way I interpret it, John is portraying BHO in a "positioning" connundrum. He's trying to LOOK like he's "reaching out" to the Right...
"I support the Left,
but I'm leanin' to the Right..." - Cream, "Politician"
...but his preoccupation with Rush exposed his duplicity--& as a kicker ceded power to Rush that he otherwise would not have had.
By clipping the line, Rush is taking what many call "a delicate balancing act" & exposing BHO for what he is--in the left-field bleachers (in the nose-bleeding-heart section).
GF has it right. The only REAL bipartisanship (as the Left sees it) is when Righties move left.

Rush specifically said, "I hope he fails." He seems to be in a "rush" to damn Obama's balancing efforts.
His Royal Bloatedness seems a bit EAGER to see Dooms Day.

WAY out of context:
"I would hope he would succeed if he acts like Reagan. But if he's going to do FDR--if he's going to do The New New Deal all over, which we will call here The Raw Deal--why would I want him to succeed? Look, he's my president. The fact that he is historic is irrelevant to me now. It matters not at all. If he is going to implement a far-left agenda... Look, I think it's already decided: a $2 trillion in stimulus? The growth of government? I think the intent here is to create as many dependent Americans as possible looking to government for their hope and salvation. If he gets nationalized health care, I mean, it's over, Sean. We're never going to roll that back. That's the end of America as we have known it, because that's then going to set the stage for everything being government owned, operated, or provided. Why would I want that to succeed? I don't believe in that. I know that's not how this country is going to be great in the future; it's not what made this country great. So I shamelessly say, "No! I want him to fail." If his agenda is a far-left collectivism -- some people say socialism -- as a conservative heartfelt, deeply, why would I want socialism to succeed?" - Rush Limbaugh (follow the link for the full transcript)

My apologies for the harshness of tone in my "preface".
I didn't intend for that to read the way it does.
Mea Maxima Culpa.
