Rush Limbaugh: Obama and Democrats Think Conservative Politics and Republicans are ‘The Enemy’
Rush Limbaugh says that the Obama administration believes conservatives and their politics are the opposition to achieving its "fundamental transformation" of the United States.
"The Republicans are the enemy," says Limbaugh about the Democratic party's stance. "The biggest problem to Obama is the existence of opposition. I firmly believe everything going on in Washington today -- everything inside the Beltway, in the media, in the think tanks, in the halls of Congress, everything -- is oriented toward eliminating a viable opposition. I think both parties have this goal."
While this may be viewed as being a bit extreme, Limbaugh goes into detail to support his claim.
"I think the Republican establishment is of the same frame of mind as Obama is, that the opposition is conservative," he says. "The primary focus is to make sure that whenever a conservative speaks, everybody laughs at him. Whenever a conservative speaks, the reaction, 'Oh, listen to that extremist.' Whenever a conservative says anything: 'Ah, listen to that racist, that sexist, that bigot.' It's been set up for quite a while, but there is a real full-court press on this now."
