just as much as President Obama and his buttmonkeys are hating it. Two reasons:
One is the obvious: Rush will pick up that ball and run with it, loudly. If Obama had to mention him at all, this was NOT the way to do it.
Second, this would seem to demonstrate that he seems to think that because he won the job interview, it means he gets what he wants. Right now. Don't you even think about arguing about it, let alone saying 'no'.
In an exchange with Rep. 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."
Translation: "I won the election, and that means you do what I want."
Not that Obama was gloating. He was just explaining that he aims to get his way on stimulus package and all other legislation, sources said, noting his unrivaled one-party control of both congressional chambers.
The hell he wasn't; he was gloating AND threatening. Which brings us to this:
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."
Translation: "Not only should you do what Pres. Obama says, and right now, but if you think the Evil Party is going to take major responsibility for this, you're nuts! We need Stupid Party members helping pass this so we've got cover, and can blame the problems on them later!"
Take being very picky, downright dumb at times, about refusing to answer questions from the media, add to that the entitlement mentality, stir in dumb comments like that about Limbaugh... I wonder if he really has any idea just how much trouble he's causing for himself?
