Limbaugh Holds Court at Conservative Conference
If there was any question as to how Rush Limbaugh is positioning himself vis-à-vis the new administration, that was obliterated by his performance Saturday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, where he once again made it clear that he’s not wishing President Obama well.
Wait, before you go…
Limbaugh used his self-described “first national address,” which ran more than hour longer than his allotted 20 minutes, to criticize President Barack Obama for inspiring fear in Americans in order to push a liberal agenda of “big government.”
“He wants people in fear, angst and crisis, fearing the worst each and every day because that clears the decks for President Obama and his pals to come in with the answers which are abject failures, historically shown and demonstrated. Doesn’t matter. They’ll have control of it when it’s all over. And that’s what they want,” Limbaugh said.
