‘IDEOLOGICAL STRAITJACKET’: LIMBAUGH GOES AFTER OBAMA FOR BEING A ‘CLOSE-MINDED ECONOMIC BIGOT’

Speaking in terms his detractors can understand, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday accused President Obama of being a “close-minded economic bigot.”

“You, sir,” Limbaugh said addressing the president’s handling of the U.S. economy, “are the one creating the mess. The days of ‘who created the mess?’ are long gone. You inherited the mess and you doubled-down on it. You have made the mess even worse.”

Limbaugh went on to explain that the president’s repeated calls to move “forward,” and away from the policies that “helped to create this mess in the first place,” are misguided and disingenuous because they disregard the economic successes experienced under these same policies.

“During this time in [President] Reagan’s first term, our economy was growing at six percent … unemployment was dropping like a rock from double-digits under Carter. We were creating 600,000 jobs a month,” he said.

“And when Reagan was done, we had created over 20 million news job; economic growth for 25 years like the nation had not seen in a century. So, yeah,” Limbaugh continued, “that’s what Obama says we can’t go back to.”

The conservative host had strong words of disapproval for the President.

“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Ideological straightjacket. A close-minded economic bigot is what Barack Obama is,” he said.

    0bama's biggest problem is that he only uses the pieces of economic theory that fit ideals, ignoring all those other messy details.

    Strange - I thought the problems started a long time ago with the way the Fed and Bank of England were set up, and then compounded by globalisation, deregulation of the banks and getting rid of the gold standard...

    It is true that since the governments handed over responsibility for their respective economies over to the sharks in the Financial sector no administration has had motivation or vision enough to take it back...

    Each one complicit in "kicking the can down the road" - well now we have reached the end of the road and it is time to face the consequences.
