Limbaugh Calls Obama "A Good Old-Fashioned Chicago Thug"

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh made the following quote yesterday while describing President-elect Barack Obama's selection of Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff:

Also, this notion of governing from the center? His first appointment, his chief of staff is Rahm Emanuel. Do we know if Emanuel has accepted? Rahm Emanuel wants to be Speaker of the House. Let me tell you a little bit about Rahm Emanuel. Hillary Clinton hates him. In the White House, Rahm Emanuel pushed NAFTA and made that go first instead of her health care baby, and her health care baby suffered. There’s no love lost between Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton, and he is good a old-fashioned Chicago thug just like Obama is a good old-fashioned Chicago thug. On the night of the Clinton election, Rahm Emanuel was so angry at the president’s enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign; Rahm Emanuel grabbed a steak knife and he began rattling off a list of betrayers.
As he listed their names, he shouted, “Dead! Dead! Dead!” and he plunged the steak knife into the table after every name.

An interesting quote from Mr. Limbaugh. I guess he' still upset that "Operation Chaos" wasn't successful in derailing the Obama campaign.

Rush Limbaugh is the real enemy when it comes to the U.S. George Bush should have invaded Limbaugh's radio station that is where the war on terror started.

The Limbaughs, Savages, and Karl Rove were the real losers in this election. They have no credibility whatsoever.

Limbaugh called Obama an "Arab" on a number of occasions. He knows how to get his listeners ignited and escalated. This is what he is payed millions of dollars for.

Get to know Chicago politics.

The thug comment was stolen from Clinton and her/his supporters. So this makes Limbaugh more a plagiarist than a racist.

BTW, did you know that Bush appointed more black people to positions of power than any other president.

Get the facts correct before spewing forth inaccurate and hateful sewage.

Funny how once it was known where the Chicago Thug name came from, Bill Clinton not Rush, that it seemed to go to the back page... funny isn't it.
