Obama Tilting at the Limbaugh Windmill

You'd think with our economy tanking the leader of the free world might be focused pretty exclusively on resolving it.

Instead, Obama has been sucked into an on-going verbal sparring match with Rush Limbaugh! The sad part is, he hasn't a prayer in a war of words with Limbaugh. It's like a man with a pea shooter getting sucked into a fight with a street gang!

This is not meant to credit Limbaugh's rhetorical style (though he is a master at what he does!) Rather it's a testament to the power of the ideas behind his speech. Limbaugh has the history of the founding fathers on his side. Obama's stuck recycling the repeated failures of long-discredited liberal ideas.
