Obama Started The Fight With Limbaugh

Of course, the MSM are slobbering over the row between Rush Limbaugh and RNC Chair Michael Steele.

As someone who has on occasion been critical of Limbaugh (i.e. Donovan McNabb -http://www.americandaily.com/article/3218 and Michael J. Fox - http://www.intellectualconservative.com/2006/10/30/has-rush-limbaugh-hammered-the-final-nail-into-the-gop-coffin/ )I wouldn't have minded Steele's objections if he had been specific. But instead Steele claims he was "inarticulate" and ends up apologizing to Limbaugh looking very, very weak in the process.

But make no mistake it was President Obama who picked a fight with Limbaugh. Only 72 hours after the Inauguration in his first meeting with Congressional Republicans he told them, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." (http://intellectualconservative.blogspot.com/2009/01/obama-to-gop-stop-listening-to-rush.html) It was Obama who has made Limbaugh once again, as National Review once depicted him, as the leader of the loyal opposition.

What would you say to the argument that Obama started the war of words with Limbaugh because it would help his agenda? Since the moderates in this country see Limbaugh as far too extreme, then anointing Rush as the leader of the Republican party lets Obama give lip service to bipartisanship while going on his preordained path. Conservatives should drop the Limbaugh dead weight and try to formulate a path back to power through new ideas which the public can see as another path and not the same ideas which put the country in this position in the first place
