I thought Obama was going to be the great communicator and unify everybody. He's only been in office a few days and he's already trying to flex his muscle. This article and his little spat with the White House press corps are beginning to prove, to a bigger audience, how big of an ass he is. This is the Obama Doctrine. I have unfounded ideas about giving tax breaks for those who don't pay taxes. I will do whatever I want since "I won, I'll trump you on that". This is Obama's "you're either with us or you're against us." Obama: Quit Listening to Rush Limbaugh if You Want to Get Things Done Obama warned Republicans to quit listening to Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats, during a White House discussion on his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package. By NY Post FOXNews.com Friday, January 23, 2009 WASHINGTON -- President Obama warned Republicans on Capitol Hill today that they need to quit listening to radio king Rush Limbaugh if they want to get along with Democrats and the new administration. "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," he told top GOP leaders, whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his nearly $1 trillion stimulus package. One White House official confirmed the comment but said he was simply trying to make a larger point about bipartisan efforts. "There are big things that unify Republicans and Democrats," the official said. "We shouldn't let partisan politics derail what are very important things that need to get done." That wasn't Obama's only jab at Republicans today. While discussing the stimulus package with top lawmakers in the White House's Roosevelt Room, President Obama shot down a critic with a simple message. "I won," he said, according to aides who were briefed on the meeting. "I will trump you on that." The response was to the objection by Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to the president's proposal to increase benefits for low-income workers who don't owe federal income taxes.
