“Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people, purposely,” Rush Limbaugh said in an interview with Washington Examiner Opinion columnist Byron York this morning. “I have never seen the media so supportive of a regime amassing so much power. And I have never known as many people who literally fear for the future of the country.”
The radio icon was responding to President Barack Obama’s (yes, yet another one) interview with CBS anchor and Obama surrogate Harry Smith, in which the President attacks Limbaugh and Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck.
Smith: “I’ve been listening to talk radio … the kindest of terms you’re referred to … ah … out in America … is a socialist … ah … the worst I’ve heard is … Nazi. … Are you aware of the enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversations about you?”
Obama: “I can go to my right, but I prefer my left … ” Oops! That was another part of the interview, when Obama and his adoring B-ball buddy, Smith, were shooting some hoops.
Limbaugh goes on to point say: “The point is not that listeners are feeling anxiety about the economy, although many undoubtedly are. It’s that they are feeling anxiety about the Obama agenda.”
Perhaps more disturbing than Obama’s blitzkrieg-like seizure of as much as 51% of the U.S. economy is that, despite public outcries against his actions, the President is downright arrogant about it. Hence the, “I can go to my left … ” comment.
And Democratic Party leaders who helped ram through the multi-trillion-dollar ObamaCare scam are positively ebullient. York goes onto cite another opinion article he penned in which Senator Max Baucus says:
“Health reform is ‘an income shift,” Democratic Sen. Max Baucus said on March 25. “It is a shift, a leveling, to help lower income, middle income Americans.” Baucus went on to say, “the maldistribution of income in America has gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind.”
Former DNC chair Howard Dean also recently admitted that the Democrat’s true health care motive was redistribution of wealth, Dean stating, “… you have to have some redistribution….”
