Was it the way he seemed to relish their attacks? Or, were Obama's rapidly-sinking approval numbers to blame?
Whatever the reason, At least for now, Democrats say they're done utilizing an anti- Rush Limbaugh strategy in an attempt to neutralize their political opposition. Now, it's on to something else. For how long, however?
From the Politico:
Beginning Sunday, the White House will harness every part of the Democratic Partys machinery to defend President Obamas budget and portray Republicans as reflexively political, according to party strategists.
A participant in the planning meetings described the push as a successor to Democrats message that Rush Limbaugh is the Republican Party leader. We have exhausted the use of Rush as an attention-getter, the official said.
David Plouffe, manager of Obamas presidential race, helped design the strategy, which includes the most extensive activation since November of the campaigns grassroots network. The databasewhich includes information for at least 10 million donors, supporters and volunteerswill now be used as a unique tool for governing, with former canvassers now being enlisted to mobilize support for the presidents legislative agenda.
Others involved in the planning included White House senior adviser David Axelrod; the DNC chairman, Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine; and DNC Executive Director Jennifer O'Malley Dillon.
The plan follows the private complaints of some Democrats that Obama let the GOP get the better of him during the debate over pork in the budget bill he just signed, and growing concerns among some Democrats that charges of big spending could stick to the president.

Rush 1, Obama 0.
Rush has the ability to turn this particular type of lemons into very profitable lemonade. I’d ask myself when they will learn...but I know better. They’ll be back to try again, and lose again.
Only if exhausted means it blew up in their faces.
Rush was kicking their butts.
Near as I can figure Rush owes his old friend James Carville a nice dinner for suckering the Dems into pumping up his numbers. Some of them are still thinking that setting up a billboard is going to hurt Rush somehow. You have to wonder.
Okay, a clue as to what they were really doing...
“A participant in the planning meetings described the push as a successor to Democrats message that Rush Limbaugh is the Republican Party leader. We have exhausted the use of Rush as an attention-getter, the official said.”
Just using Rush as a “tool” — that’s about all...
We have exhausted the use of Rush as an attention-getter,
Translation: They found out we were behind it and it got him ATTENTION!
There are plent more crises to manufacture. Plus, Rush challenged Obama to a debate! I think he should have offered a debate someplace big, Madison Square Garden? Sell tickets? Agree to donate the proceeds to Obama’s favorite faith-based charity.
There you go. That’s how you beat the rats. Hit them again and again. Let no attack go unanswered. Simple strategy really. And typical lib, run when the opponent has teeth.
Don’t believe it for a second, they have handed it off to DU, moveon, and the tard fest at the SCRIANNA post...You know, all those so called journalists sitting in the front row of the Odrama press briefings by Gibbs.
Rush 1, Zero 0
Look for more disrupter attacks here. Kittens are going to be busy.

"He's on the radio three hours a day and we can't overcome that."
But he (in his own blue-collar way) has too much class for that.
I can’t believe those sorry bass turds attacked a private, U.S. citizen. That’s the kind of thing fascist regimes do. Amerika is looking more and more like the Third Reich everyday. I guess “change” is NOT always a good thing.
Not only did they expand Rush’s audience, they awakened the Tea Party Patriots. Plus the Glenn Beck effort.
They can’t undo what they’ve done, and the more they try, the faster they’ll fail.
Bring it on, Obama-Nuts!
I think he's got his front claws in that butt. The back ones are next.
There, fixed it.
