Obama to GOP : Stop Listening to Rush Limbaugh

In a meeting with GOP leaders on Friday, President Obama told them, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done."

Republicans will be happy to go along with that suggestion just as soon as Democrats vow to stop reading The New York Times, listening to NPR and watching MSNBC.

Of course if President Bush had ever said such a thing to Congressional Democrats the institutions I just mentioned would have a fit. Bush would be accused of partisanship. But Obama can talk disrespectfully about Republicans and conservatives with impunity.

It won't be the last time.
