Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh slammed President Obama for “complaining and whining” about Fox News on Wednesday.
Rush said, “See, Obama wants you to think Fox News is standing in their way. He’s president of the United States. He’s got a checkbook. If he wants to, he could spend a billion dollars on Amtrak. If he wants to, he can ignore the Constitution, and flood the country with unskilled, uneducated, poverty-stricken people who are going to stay in poverty once they get here, by design, so they will constantly vote [for] the Democrat Party. Obama has 25 gazillion times the power Fox News has, or any radio talk show has. If Barack Obama wanted to, he could write everybody in poverty a check for a thousand dollars, instead of spending ’em on Amtrak or whatever. But somehow, the Limbaugh Theorem comes into play once again, and Obama is an innocent bystander. While more and more people get sucked into poverty, he’s out there doing everything he can to stop it. He’s out there making sure that the powerful forces of greed who want people to be sponges and leeches and undeserving continue somehow to relegate them to poverty. I don’t know how it’s happening, but the Koch brothers are making sure people are poor and they’re making sure they’re steered to poverty, and they stay there.”
Rush added, “Meanwhile, Obama, the president of the United States, with a checkbook that nobody will stop him from using, is powerless to do anything about it. So powerless, he had to convene a conference at Georgetown University to sit around and whine and moan with a bunch of other liberals about the plight of the poor, all the while exempting himself from any role, any responsibility, when virtually every economic circumstance in this country today is attributable to Obama policies.”
He concluded, “So here’s the most powerful man in the world, sitting around complaining and whining with a bunch of other impotent liberals, wringing their hands and so upset and crying about the poor and it’s all the fault of Fox News. And then he said we’re gonna have to change how the media reports on these issues. Really? Well, how does he propose that?”
