Day 3 And Beyond

There's the Obama that we all know and love!

First he takes a jab at radio king and conservative icon Rush Limbaugh:

"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.

Then he shows his hopey changiness to Eric Cantor of Virginia:

In an exchange with Eric Cantor (R-Va) about the proposal, the President shot back "I won," according to aides briefed on the meeting.

"I will trump you on that."

I can imagine the fury that would have ensued if a Republican President had said that to Democrat minority leaders.

Rush Limbaugh did not miss a step in returning fire, giving a statement to Byron York in the NRO:

"If I can be made to serve as a distraction, then there is that much less time debating the merits of the trillion dollar debacle," Limbaugh explained.

Rush also took the opportunity to point out that the attack was straight from the Alinsky playbook, and revealed this quote from the meeting:

"If we don't get this done we (the Democrats) could lose seats and I could lose re-election. But we can't let people like Rush Limbaugh stall this. That's how things don't get done in this town."

Whew. There for a minute I thought maybe this guy would turn out all right, or at least not so bad. I guess that danger has passed.

Hat tip: Ace O' Spades.

Hehe - I ain't just dropping by anymore. I'm in yer blog, being part of yer furniture! :D

I totally commented on that link - Obi-wan Obamessiah really seems to believe his own press doesn't he? THAT will be his downfall. He really thinks he won as opposed to the inevitable change of parties that occurs after 8 years (if you're lucky.) He REALLY thinks that! Everyone knew McCain didn't have a chance, we just got thrown a curveball with the beauteous Sarah is all. It gave us false hope.

Verification word: ressub

Use coasters and throw away yer empty bottles then ;-D
Yeah, he's an arrogant jackass, but I think he's going to get a rude awakening about the whole separation of powers thing and how much fun it is being the guy that everyone can identify (instead of being in a nice safe Senate seat where no one knows you for six years at a time).
Time will tell!
