Why is the president of the United States obsessed with a talk radio host?
Obama mentioned Rush Limbaugh again at a fundraiser last week, and Rush replied gleefully, “I live rent-free in Obama’s head” (FREE audio).
Limbaugh added that if the president really thinks of him as the official opposition, it’s a role he’s delighted to take on: “I’m willing to meet with the president any time to advise him, to help him.”
However, Rush warned listeners not to get their hopes up regarding all the scandals plaguing the White House (FREE audio).
“Do you really think that the media is gonna end up divorcing Obama and end up opposing him over this? What are they gonna do, demand impeachment?” Limbaugh asked. “This is a lover’s spat. They’re gonna kiss and make up inside of a week.”
“Why is the government behaving this way? Because this is the way dictatorships act,” Dr. Savage explained this week, reflecting on the sudden rash of scandals crashing down on Obama’s head (FREE audio).
“You may say that this isn’t really tyranny,” he added, “that Americans aren’t being rounded up and sent to camps or anything like that. You’re right. Not yet. But this is how all tyrannies begin.”
Savage declared that in particular, the White House’s surveillance of Associated Press journalists is “worse than Watergate” and that the current president has now “done far worse things than Nixon ever did” (FREE audio).
Why are all these stories coming out now? Because, Savage explained, someone in the administration realizes that Obama is “a clear and present danger” to the survival of the United States.
“It’s time to kill the IRS!”
That was Mark Levin’s conclusion after revelations that the Internal Revenue Service had harassed so-called “tea party” non-profit groups. Levin’s own Landmark Legal Foundation has been sounding the alarm about “IRS abuse since the 1990s” (FREE audio).
Levin also singled out Attorney General Eric Holder for criticism in light of the Associated Press wire-tapping scandal. He says Holder is lying when he says he recused himself from signing off on the subpoena that authorized the “investigation” of AP reporters (FREE audio).
Investigative journalist Aaron Klein focused his attention on the ongoing Benghazi scandal. Klein tries to find out what really happened to Ambassador Stevens, now that new information is coming out about the circumstances surrounding his brutal murder.
He explains that the Obama administration actually used taxpayer dollars to cover up the truth about the attack and adds that Hillary Clinton may have perjured herself under oath while testifying about the incident. Klein even offers evidence that the Benghazi massacre was related to the Boston Marathon bombing (FREE audio).
“We’re going to talk about what my old friend Marco Rubio is doing,” Laura Ingraham told her audience on Monday, after it emerged that the senator’s staff was monitoring how Rubio’s immigration bill was being discussed on conservative talk radio.
“Is this what conservative senators should be spending their time doing – having their staff doing?” Ingraham wondered, adding, “I have no problem in many ways with being monitored by the people that are sadly and in a disappointing fashion turning their backs on conservative principles. Eighty percent of amnestied individuals will end up voting Democratic – 80 percent.”
Laura’s guests included Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies, Senator Jim Sessions, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and British author and columnist Peter Hitchens, who talked about the sudden popularity of the conservative U.K. Independence Party (FREE audio).
This week, Glenn Beck contended that the three major White House scandals reveal Obama’s stated goal to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
The president insists he was ignorant of these scandals, but Glenn Beck says, “It’s absolutely incomprehensible. There’s no way. There’s no way he didn’t know. But I want to go back to the name of the scandals. We have Benghazi, IRS and the AP. I tried to figure out what these things were really all about – in the end what do these three scandals have in common?”
“What they have in common is the arrogance of transforming the world,” said the talk radio host.
