Rush Just Said It: Obama Is "Economically Illiterate" (vanity)
Rush Limbaugh Show | 08-03-12 | OrangeHoof

Posted on 08/03/2012 9:39:42 AM PDT by OrangeHoof

I've used this phrase for about a year and now Rush Limbaugh has said it to millions: Barack Obama is economically illiterate.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: economicilliterate; eib; obama; rushlimbaugh; vanity
Now, watch the race baiters jump all over this. Illiteracy will be seen as code word for racism.

Rush is totally correct about this. Every time Obama speaks he displays his ignorance about economics. He either doesn't get it or refuses to understand it.

But I expect Rush is going to get the worst blowback about this since he called Sandra Fluke a slut. Calling a black man illiterate is going to get the libs in a dither.

No one can prove that The Disaster ever took an Economics Course. I certainly see no evidence that he has.

There will be no “racism” blowback over what Rush said. Media power to generate outrage about criticizing The Disaster is severely reduced.

On the bright side, Obama is also “clean and articulate”,...as long as the teleprompter doesn’t fail.

Exactly right. Anyone who doesn’t know the difference between gross and net can easily be described as economically illiterate.

If you can’t send Obama money, send him your food stamps. He needs your help.

Yep, and more successful than ever. Rolling in money. Listeners up from 18 million to 20 million per week.

And you? Still clicking away at the keyboard? Your accomplishments?

Rush is precisely wrong on this. Describing Obama as economically illiterate suggests that if only Obama were not so stupid and understood the error of his ways, he would alter course. Obama understands exactly what he is doing, understands the damage that it is doing to the economy, and is choosing to do it anyway. He is fundamentally an ideologically driven collectivist who does not care if the overall economy suffers. What he cares about is redistribution and making everyone as equal as possible - that is equal outcome rather than equal opportunity.

The truth is that if Obama had any economic intelligence and sought to articulate it, he couldn’t get elected. He desires an economic system where government rules over all and selects the winners and losers based on their own standards and biases.

I’d have thought you would have moved on to another stage of grief by now. Sorry for your loss.

Seriously, why would we expect a communist to know a capitalist economy? That’s exactly why he’s trying to change us away from capitalism.

Whether he knows the difference or even really cares is unimportant. It is easy to spend other people’s money.

When it comes to Hussein, it is much easier to list the areas of human endeavour where he is NOT ignorant. It would be a very short list.

He is not ignorant on using Saul Alinsky tactics of deceit as it is his only method to defend almost total ignorance of everything else.

He is not ignorant on how to play the race card every day but totally ignorant that it no longer works for most of us.

Other than that, yep, his is an ignorant, America hating, Is-Slime loving, Marxist POS who in a just universe would not be qualified to clean the toilets in the White House.

Rush still doesn’t get it or perhaps he is just faking it to promote his career.

The situation that the country is in has little to do with Obama’s economic illiteracy (nobody can be THAT dumb) but everything to do with the fact that he is intentionally destroying this nation.

It’s not only our economy that is in trouble, but so is our national security and moral compass.

Actually..... Osama (AKA - Obama) is a self loathing half black / half “whatever” white guy who’s mother dumped him with his grandparents and who’s father had absolutely nothing to do with him.

His only friends were dope heads and communist radicals.

Anyone who doesn’t know the difference between gross and net can easily be described as economically illiterate.

They can also be described as a radical Marxist who doesn't give a big rat's ass about capitalist economics and, in fact, is very effectively working to destroy American capitalism.

Exactly correct!!! Everytime some media or political figure says that obama “doesn’t understand”, is “illiterate” or “has the wrong outlook” on any subject they are playing into the concept that obama is just ill-advised or unschooled but well-meaning.

BULLSHIT! He is a hardcore socialist who knows exactly what he is doing and revels in his successes in destroying the Constitution and the Republic.

Enough of this playing nice, speaking well of democrats and putting up the illusion that they love their country. THEY DO NOT! They are the enemy of the Republic and the Constitution and it is past the time of being nice. They are Nazi/Socialist/Fascist/Criminal/liars. They have no redeeming social value and even the loyalists during the revolution were better human beings than the denizens of the democrat party of the U.S.

Rush's actual quote:

The only way that we can grow this economy and create opportunities, create wealth, create jobs, see real GDP growth over 4%, see real job growth of hundreds of thousands a month, the only way to do that is to get rid of this economically illiterate president who is driven by an ideological straitjacket that makes it impossible for him to do what must be done.

My point was that Rush will catch hell for calling Obama an illiterate. It may need 24-48 hours to generate the groundswell in the lib media but I'm expecting it to happen.

Ubama, the marxist, has stated his plan is working as planned.

That plan would be Cloward-Piven - the communist professors at Columbia.

Oh, come on. Didn't Obama lecture us masterfully on the ins and outs of the profit/earnings ratio? What more do you want?

This may be the first time you’ve heard Limbaugh use the phrase but it isn’t the first time he has used the phrase.
