Obama Blasts Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist in Rolling Stone Interview
He has to blame someone for his failed record. Right?
President Obama sat down with lib mag Rolling Stone recently. The president lashed out at Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist for persuading Republicans to block his big government – big spending plans.
The Weekly Standard reported on The Rolling Stone interview with Barack Obama.
The president was asked, “Is there any way to break through that obstructionism by Republicans?”
He responded by attacking conservatives Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist:
My hope is that if the American people send a message to them that’s consistent with the fact that Congress is polling at 13 percent right now, and they suffer some losses in this next election, that there’s going to be some self-reflection going on – that it might break the fever. They might say to themselves, “You know what, we’ve lost our way here. We need to refocus on trying to get things done for the American people.”
Frankly, I know that there are good, decent Republicans on Capitol Hill who, in a different environment, would welcome the capacity to work with me. But right now, in an atmosphere in which folks like Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist are defining what it means to be a true conservative, they are lying low. My hope is that after this next election, they’ll feel a little more liberated to go out and say, “Let’s redirect the Republican Party back to those traditions in which a Dwight Eisenhower can build an interstate highway system.”
Of course the US Senate is still controlled by Democrats. Barack won’t mention that.
By the way… It’s not the first time Obama attacked Rush Limbaugh – It’s just the first time this month.
In March Obama attacked Rush Limbaugh while defending Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who wants American taxpayers to foot the bill for her $9 a month birth control pills.
