Human Events

David Limbaugh

President Barack Obama is not just a radical leftist; he is obviously so ensconced in his ideology that he believes — or wants you to believe — that anyone who opposes him must have sinister motives.

One of his recurring themes is that some Republicans would work with him but can’t do so for fear of reprisal from Grover Norquist on taxes, the National Rifle Association on guns, the conservative House caucus, radio talk show hosts and your garden-variety racists, who allegedly oppose Obama just for sport.

In mid-January, Obama accused the “gun lobby” of “ginning up” fears that the federal government would use the Newtown, Conn., shooting tragedy to seize America’s guns, saying, “It’s certainly good for business.” Is that how presidents should talk?

Obama suggested that GOP congressional opposition was based not on principle but on the fear that unless it resisted Obama’s gun-grabbing schemes, it would lose its precious NRA funding. As if the American public agrees with Obama on this issue any more than it did on Obamacare. As if Obama truly cares whether the American public agrees with him on this issue (other than as a means to an end) any more than he cared about the public’s view on Obamacare.

Indeed, this is either record-breaking myopia or sophisticated Orwellian deception. Few things are more palpable on the political scene today than the groundswell of grass-roots support for the right to own firearms under the Second Amendment. It is intrinsic to the American character.

Obama didn’t just mischaracterize the public mood on the issue of gun control; he threw in an additional allegation of political corruption against Republicans, saying, “The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they’re really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies.”

Do you see the pattern here? As the leading disciple of radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, Obama must delegitimize his political opposition. He can’t just debate issues on the merits. He must “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” We’ve seen Obama do it on virtually every policy he has promoted — from demonizing health care professionals and insurance companies in pursuit of Obamacare to taunting “fat cat banks” in his quest for financial “reform” to his defamation of “big oil” to his personal attacks on the “rich” to his savaging of Rep. Paul Ryan and other House Republicans as callous toward seniors and the middle class for daring to reform entitlements.  MORE

    I’m having a harder time listening to Limbaugh as he talks about himself so much. I want politcal evaluation with caller comentary…I dont care about Ipods, golf, the constantly abuse of words (he’s the “words mean something guy”)& the evr increasing commericals.

    He had a chance to nail Boner & let him skate…bummer

    Obama is nuts,a real dangerous man and the left loves him.
    I just hope he leaves office when his term is up.
    We will have to start repairing the damage he did. If Hillary gets in office, it really will be over.
    Not much we can do,since we keep running RINOS.

    In a word: Sophistry

    Now I’m going to wait to see which writers pick it up. I am responsible for a number of words adopted into common usage.

    David Limbaugh is Rush Limbaugh’s brother, who is more focused and genuine than Rush.
    David has written some really good books, one titled “Crimes against Liberty” that’s worth reading.

    One problem with Right /vs/ Left is that people on the “Right” generally have businesses or jobs or families or other worthwhile commitments.

    People on the Left just sit around all day plotting how to screw the Right.
