Recent attacks on conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh by the Obama administration and its Clinton cronies have nearly doubled his ratings, James Hirsen’s LEFT COAST REPORT on Newsmax notes.
Limbaugh’s ratings have gone from 14.2 million listeners to about 25 million, according to Talkers magazine, since being targeted by the administration.
Reportedly, the attacks originated from suggestions by former Bill Clinton aides James Carville and Paul Begala. It has also been reported that former Clinton aide, George Stephanopoulos of ABC “News,” gets daily talking points from Obama’s White House.
The fight began when Obama and his team became incensed over Limbaugh’s comments that he wanted President Obama’s policies to fail because he thinks they are socialist policies that will harm the country and its people, if not the entire world.
Even moderate and independent pundits have become concerned about the far-left aspect of many recent policy statements and initiatives from the Obama administration and his party’s control of the U.S. Congress through Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
