Obama Won’t Golf With Limbaugh; Rush Can ‘Play With Himself’

Isn’t this the same Obama who said that reaching out to enemies “strengthens our hand”? But of course that’s only if the “enemies” are people who want America to be buried under a mushroom cloud. Domestic critics who voice opposition to a socialized America are worthy of no such olive branch, apparently.

From the New York Post:

When President Obama was asked if he would play a round of golf with his talk-radio nemesis Rush Limbaugh, the response, relayed by a top Democrat, was: “Limbaugh can play with himself.”

This is according to Zev Chafets in his new book, “Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One,” due May 25 from Sentinel.

The caustic comeback is another example of the verbal venom between the White House and the conservative radio star. In an interview with CBS News last month, Obama called the views spelled out by Limbaugh and Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck “troublesome.”

I’ll bet this wouldn’t have been the response if Ahmadinejad, Castro or Chavez wanted to play 18.
