Obama: Limbaugh, Beck Spreading 'Vitriol'


Obama: Limbaugh, Beck Spreading 'Vitriol'


Obama said that while he never bought into the overly nice things people said about him after his election, he didn’t think he deserved the ‘vitriol’ he says he’s heard from Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

In an interview with CBS News' Harry Smith Thursday, Obama suggested that the two leading conservative voices on the airwaves were stirring up hatred toward him.

"I've been out and about, listening to talk radio," Smith told Obama. "The kindest of terms you're sometimes referred to out in America is a socialist. The worst of which I've heard is called a Nazi. Are you aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation about you?
"Well, I think that when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, it's pretty apparent, and it's troublesome," Obama said. "But keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out. It happens often when you've got an economy that is making people more anxious, and people are feeling like there is a lot of change that needs to take place. But that's not the vast majority of Americans. I think the vast majority of Americans know that we're trying hard, that I want what's best for the country."

Added Obama:

"I didn't buy all the hype, right after inauguration, where everybody was only saying nice things about me. And I don't get too worried when things aren't going as well because I know that over time these things turn."


The "Troublesome" El Rushbo Responds to President Obama

RUSH: I wonder if today over at CBS they are on drugs or if they are drinking. They have a poll out today on Obama's approval rating and health care that I'm sure is just ripping their hearts out. "Obama's Approval Rating Hits New Low -- Last week, President Obama signed historic health care reform legislation into law -- but his legislative success doesn't seem to have helped his image with the American public.

I guess I need a new title for myself. I need to start calling myself the Troublesome Rush Limbaugh, because the president said that comments I make are troublesome.

RUSH: All right. So I am the Troublesome Rush Limbaugh, vitriol. Let me say that I, we at the EIB Network have yet to have a year that was down from a previous year. Every year we've had improvement, economically we've been up. There is no economic anxiety here at the EIB Network. What there is is fear for the United States of America. The American people do not think that Barack Obama is doing what's best for the country. They do not believe that in the slightest. Never in my life have I seen a regime like this governing so against the will of the people, purposely. I have never known more people personally who literally fear for the country. I have never before in my life witnessed a media so supportive of a regime amassing such power, and for Barack Obama to run around and say that this show and Beck and all of talk radio is filled with vitriol? Barack Obama sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years and never once complained about the tone of Jeremiah Wright's bigoted, anti-American, racist rants.

One of my theories about President Obama is that he has been filled with anger from day one, that he has a chip on his shoulder about something. It's laugh-out-loud funny to hear him pretend to be concerned about dissent from the people he has insulted, people he has provoked and ridiculed and run over. A domestic terrorist, Bill Ayers, is one of his best buddies. Jeremiah Wright was one of the most important people in his life, as was Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed communist who raised him. Barack Obama always honors the infamous Jewish hater, Louis Farrakhan with the title "minister." This guy's worried about truthful, informed political speech? Of course he is, because all radical leftists have to shut up and shut down anybody who stands in their way. They clear the field. They don't look at leveling the field. They clear it. And now they have the State-Controlled Media to help 'em out.

Look at the language toward Republicans that his own party uses. Look at the false claims of racism at the tea party people on Sunday, the date the health care bill was signed. They faked an incident. They were trying to provoke an incident. There's no reason to walk above ground to get to the Capitol building from their offices. There are tunnels underneath with trains, subways and so forth. The Congressional Black Caucus and Pelosi walking over there with a big gavel trying to provoke an incident. When an incident didn't happen, they made it up. The media reported the incident without one shred of evidence. There still is no evidence that anybody shouted the N-word to anybody. There was video being taken by hundreds of people of these incidents. Not one of those videos shows the incident to have occurred. These are the kind of tactics that Barack Obama inspires. In Philadelphia during the campaign Barack Obama: "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." Is that vitriol? Barack Obama, Jim Messina, deputy chief of staff: "If you get hit, we're going to punch back twice as hard." Barack Obama: "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." This he said to top Republican leaders whom he had invited to the White House to discuss his failed $1 trillion Porkulus bill.

In San Francisco, Barack Obama: "You go into these small towns of Pennsylvania like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them and they fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration, each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustration." Is that vitriol? Barack Obama daily insults the American people. There's no question. Barack Obama: "I do think everybody has a responsibility, Democrats and Republicans, to tone down some of this rhetoric, some of these comments." He needs to start with himself. He needs to start with Reverend Wright. He needs to start with any number of his party members.

The American people are not a bunch of freaks. They're not bitter clingers, and they're not overly anxious about the economy and the country. They are overly anxious about Obama's agenda. They are scared to death of Obama's agenda. They do not understand how it is that a man was elected like Obama who willingly, purposely governs against the will of the people, oversees the destruction of the private sector where their jobs and the future jobs of their children and grandchildren were supposed to be.

It's really funny how we never heard from our State-Controlled Media about the real Nazi skinhead groups when they were out there protesting Bush and the Iraq war. You go to the Daily Kos website or whatever it's called, and you'll see the word "Nazi" I don't know how many times, do a Google search, they call everybody on the right Nazis over there. And remember that joke Wanda Sykes told about me when she did the White House Correspondents Dinner? It involved me dying, and Obama sat there and laughed at it. He was the guest of honor at that thing. So I would suggest if this vitriol exists it is not the responsibility of the Troublesome Rush Limbaugh. This country has been divided and roiled on purpose to create chaos for the express purpose of the expansion of government to fix the problems that they are causing. I told the broadcast engineer I need to hear a song today reminiscent of the situation I now find myself in.

Nancy Pelosi calls tea party people Nazis! "Carrying swastikas" and all of that.


Wild Thing's comment.......

When Obama says things like he does against people that prove they LOVE America it just keeps showing anyone thatis awake how horrible Obama truly is and how he now only hates America but anyone that does not hate America along with him.

And adding in to that his one accomopolishment will be how he put through, forced through with bribes and scare tactics his obamacare. A bill that the majority of Americans do not want. Yes that is some claim to fame Obama.

According to Webster Vitriol-something highly caustic or severe in effect, as criticism.

Rush and Beck are accused of this "vitriol", first thing Rush said, "I hope he fails". nothing vitriol about that more than half the country wished that and still do. For a year Glenn Beck gave obama the benefit of the doubt, He kept investigating obama's Czar appointments and all the evidence pointed to the fact that all the wierdos appointed by obama are Socialist, Marxist or flat out communists. So who is Barack Hussein Obama. No vitriol there, either, notihng but the truth.

This thin skinned Soutpiel Puppet ought to grow a pair an act like a man and take his lumps and stop whinning. Becuase it is going to get worse before he's out of there.

Hmmm...That doesn't quite measure up the what Bush had to put up with. A movie about Assassinating the President, primarily Bush, Likenesses to Hitler, SwastiKaas and a book on taking out Bush. Bush never complained.

Sounds like the BoyCub can't take the heat, you know what Harry Truman said about taking the Heat, Get out of the Kitchen Barry.

Maybe it's just me, but the rhetoric from the left seems to have grabbed another gear in this past week. It seems they're trying to force a violent confrontation and so far, have been unsuccessful.

It is very apparent that the very people who claim tolerance as one of the pillars of their belief system are finally being seen for who they really are. The far left couldn't be more hypocritical in their response to the truth. They play the wounded one who is hurt and shocked by what they hear being said.

I applaud Rush and Beck for asking the questions that the mainstream media won't touch.
