YAHOO! HEADLINE: President calls for end to partisan ‘vitriol’
ARTICLE HEADLINE: Obama says Beck, Limbaugh fuel ‘troublesome’ political climate
In an interview with Harry Smith on CBS’ “Early Show” Friday morning, President Obama called out Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh as purveyors of “vitriol” – creating a climate in which he’s called a “socialist” and even a “Nazi.”
Smith asked the president if he was “aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation about you.” Obama replied, “When you’ve listened to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck it’s pretty apparent.” The rancor is “troublesome,” he said, but he acknowledged it’s also a recurring phenomenon.
I LOVE HOW ACCORDING TO THE PRESIDENT LIMBAUGH AND BECK ARE “PURVEYORS OF VITRIOL” WHILE HIS MENTORS AND PASTOR APPARENTLY ARE NOT. BEYOND ALL OF THIS, APPARENTLY YOU CAN’T EVEN STATE THE TRUTH ABOUT OBAMA WITHOUT BEING ACCUSED OF BEING “TROUBLESOME.” IN DEFENSE OF THIS STATEMENT, WHAT ARE OBAMA’S POLICIES? ARE THEY IN ACCORD WITH TRADITIONAL AMERICAN VALUES OR ARE THEY IN LINE WITH THE SOCIALIST REGIMES HE IS BEING ACCUSED OF ASSOCIATING WITH? WELL? THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION. AS ANOTHER EXPERIMENT, ASK YOURSELF IF THERE IS ANYTHING A DEMOCRT COULD SAY THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED “OVER THE TOP,” “VITRIOL” OR “TROUBLESOME”. DO YOU COME UP WITH ANYTHING?
