    Thumbs down Limbaugh attacks Obama for thanking Native Americans on Thanksgiving






    How dare he!

    Rush Limbaugh blasted President Obama on Wednesday for thanking the Native Americans and using "every cliché" during the White House's official Thanksgiving proclamation.

    The conservative radio talk show host said he was so shocked by Obama's "wildly distorted" version of the holiday that he initially thought it was "a prank."

    Limbaugh read the President's words and added his own commentary.

    "This Thanksgiving Day, we reflect on the compassion and contributions of Native Americans, whose skill in agriculture helped the early colonists survive, and whose rich culture continues to add to our Nation's heritage," Obama said in the declaration.

    Limbaugh added, "…at their casinos and on their reservations."

    In the proclamation, Obama said "This spirit brought together the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe — who had been living and thriving around Plymouth for thousands of years."

    The radio host chimed in, "So, we were the invaders. The Indians were minding their own business. We were incompetent idiots. We didn't know how to feed ourselves so they came along and showed us how and that's what Thanksgiving is all about."

    Limbaugh complained that Obama said "nothing about the Constitution in his Thanksgiving Day proclamation because he's got a problem with it."

    He explained to the caller what he thought the "real" story of Thanksgiving:

    "The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed," the radio host tells a caller, adding "the Indians didn't teach us capitalism" and that "we shared our bounty with them… because we first failed as socialists."

    But Obama isn't the first President to recognize the contributions of Native Americans during their Thanksgiving proclamation, Media Matters points out. In 2000, Bill Clinton mentioned Native Americans and their "generosity."

    And in 1981, Ronald Reagan recalled the first Thanksgiving, giving thanks to the Native Americans

    "The Pilgrims planted and harvested a bountiful crop. After the harvest they gathered their families together and joined in celebration and prayer with the Native Americans who had taught them so much. Clearly our forefathers were thankful not only for the material well-being of their harvest but for this abundance of goodwill as well," said Reagan.

    When is his apology tour going to end? Those bastards tried to stop the building of the greatest country in the history of the world. We gave and gave and gave, but it was never enough. Obama should be tried for treason on this one.

    Rush is just a marketer trying to woo anti Obama business.

    We all know Obama (and every other president who gave similar thanks) is right here.

    Limbaugh is a fucking idiot who should be arrested and tried for sedition. Never ever has there been a blowhard who claims to be such a fountain of infinite wisdom, spouting off against the flavor of the day yet never actually offering any suggestions to fix things. Only trying to incite non-thinkers into acting like idiots themselves.

    Perfect example of why I don't listen to this idiot. If you want entertainment watch Colbert, Stewart and Bill O’Reilly.

    It's pretty ridiculous, these entertainers.

    All of this attacking, spinning, counter-attacking, and counter-spinning over every little, trivial utterance.

    To repeat, I stopped watching TV in 2004, and I stopped listening to political radio sometimes around the year 2000.

    I only read, and I choose my sources carefully.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    those types of entertainers provide fodder for all the mental midgets that hang off their ever word is it it were gospel. 90% of the US population gets 100% of their "information" from televised news media, the sheeple are easily lead and mislead.

    ^ LAM,

    Damn right. And it pisses me off!! I tell some of my family members who follwo this shite, and they are actually starting to listen.

    I don't care what they believe - they just need to use different sources.

    They regurgitate this stuff - and they don't even know it.

    exactly...nothing wrong with having an opinion just make it an educated one. so easy to tell when people haven't formed their own opinion are are simply reciting the rhetoric that they heard on TV or from their parents, etc.

    Yeah, the only real legitimate news source nowadays is MSNBC and The View. The rest is all just corporate crap.

    Fox is the worst. Like the some of the shows and the sports but when it comes to the commentators I just can't sit there and watch it.
    Fox is the only station that promotes Palin.....Doesn't that say something?
    I want fair and balanced news, Fox falls short of it.

    that is always the case with those types aka. the typical self-serving sociopath. they never have any sane or rational answers to any problems.

    These types of folks thrive on knowing that so many people just want to hear what they want and rarely the facts nor the truth....

    "When confronted with an overwhelming truth,
    contend the opposite, and surely someone will
    think you wise." quote I remember but forget from whom it came.....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    That's Rush's schtick though. He's overstates and deliberately goes over the top to be confrontational. That's why he's been #1 for so long. He makes good points at times, but he does it in a very crass/caustic way deliberately. You just gotta take what he says with a grain of salt. He is an entertainer.

    Absolutely. The thing that stuns me is that he has such a loyal fan base. Shocking how many people actually buy his particular brand of B.S. Whole lot of stupid out there.

    I don't see how it's dangerous. I wonder if any of you have even listened to his show before. He's just over the top sarcastic and makes fun of liberals the whole time. He's not telling his listeners to go out and take up arms or bomb buildings.

    He's no more dangerous than some on the left that were calling on the govt to release CIA docs related to interrogations or left wing papers like Newsweek that were all over a rumor about a qoran being flushed, that couldn't be verified, but did lead to riots and killings in the middle east.

    They are both dangerous, left or right.
    There are people out there who hear voices in their heads and all it takes is one nut to cause damage.

    He has not made any good points. Ever. He's contrary just to be contrary. On one show he bags on Lindsey Lohan for being an addict. Same guy who was shopping doctors to get his fix. What the bag of shit should be doing is holding her hand in rehab, offering support.

    Yeah, being the sweet compassionate guy he is. That would be majorly stepping out of character for Rush.
