Obama Goes After Rush Limbaugh and Rush Fires Back - IT'S ON!
I adore Rush Limbaugh. Never has the TRUE conservative voice had such a champion of our belief system. Obamba warned Republicans in a meeting that they needed to stop listening to Rush. In other words, Obama is the leader, the only one, in fact THE ONE. Evidently, Rush didn't take it very well, which those of us who have listened to him for two decades knew he wouldn't. Here's a part of Rush's response:
"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."
Saul D. Alinsky, also known as the father of American radicalism, wrote a book entitled Rules for Radicals. He had developed strategies and tactics that take the enormous, unfocused emotional energy of grassroots groups and transform it into effective anti-government and anti-corporate activism. Activist organizations teach his ideas widely taught today as a set of model behaviors, and they use these principles to create an emotional commitment to victory - NO MATTER WHAT. Rule #12 reads:
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)
It appears that Obama is familiar with the book and the techniques and that leads me to believe his administration is going to use these dirty underhanded methods in days to come. I can hardly wait. (sarcasm intended)
