Rush Limbaugh is on the attack after President Obama delivered his speech, and he is holding nothing back. On his Wednesday morning show, Limbaugh referred to the PresidentÂ’s speech asÂ Â“a personal bitch slapÂ” to the Republican party. Then on Thursday, Limbaugh called Obama Â“a vindictive little guy.Â”
Now, of course, Limbaugh is well known for slamming the DemocratÂ’s party and President Obama, but now he is making it personal. Why did he call ObamaÂ’s speech a Â“personal bitch slapÂ”?
According to Limbaugh, he thinks it was a low blow for Obama to invite Paul Ryan, who is a Republican from Wisconsin and the House Budget Committee Chairman, to sit on the front row during the George Washington University Presidential speech and then slam the Republicans left and right. Yes. Limbaugh is right that Obama and his advisers basically set up Paul Ryan to be slammed.
After the official invitation to Ryan, Obama Â“took issue with Mr. RyanÂ’s 2012 budget plan saying that it would Â‘fundamentallyÂ’ change AmericaÂ’s social compact and harm seniors and the poor.Â” Now, donÂ’t forget that just days before the speech, Obama personally stated that he was ready to Â“fundamentally change the United States of America.Â”
Paul Ryan was completely offended by ObamaÂ’s remarks and felt that the President was personally attacking him and the Republican party during his speech. Ryan stated that the speech was Â“excessively partisan.Â”
Well what in the world did Ryan, Limbaugh, or the Republicans expect from the President? Obama is a democrat; of course, he is going to be partisan. Did they think the President was going to be pro-Republican?
Yes, it would be wise for the President of the United States to tactfully stay more neutral on controversial issues, but really, he was following his own personal convictions. Can you blame him for that?
After calling the speech a Â“personal bitch slapÂ” to Republicans, Limbaugh progressed to calling Obama a Â“vindictive little guy.Â” The controversial radio talk show host stated that the speech Â“was in no way presidential.Â” Limbaugh is really getting stirred up about the Obama speech, isnÂ’t he?
The host also stated that he felt that the Obama speech revealed the PresidentÂ’s true character. Limbaugh stated, Â“ObamaÂ’s not a good guy. HeÂ’s a mean, vindictive little guy. HeÂ’s very cold.Â” The problem with the radio talk show host speaking this way about Obama is that these type of comments will only stir the DemocratÂ’s fuel for the fire. Was this wise for Limbaugh to make these comments? Does he care what anyone thinks?
