    Listening to Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN tonight--March 4, 2009. Baglia--the best friend to our new Chief of Staff--Immnual--who he admits he speaks to every single day.

    The interview starts with Anderson pressuring Baglia regarding what was it that made them go after Rush Limbaugh. Baglia--grinning ear to ear is just so proud to explain that he & Carvill did some kind of poll last October, prior to the election. They asked the people taking the poll--whom do you dislike most.

    1. Pastor Wright
    2. Bill Ayers
    3. Rush Limbaugh

    Pastor Wright & Bill Ayers came in at 50 & Rush Limbaugh came in at 58--(the worst number according to Baglia--still grinning ear to ear.) So they came up with this strategy to attack Rush Limbaugh--& make him the icon of the Republican party.

    NOW HERE IT IS: the achille's heal to this DNC strategy:
    Still grinning ear to ear: Baglia--then inadvertantly states that to "be fair" most of the people polled did not know who Pastor Wright was!

    Did you catch that? The majority of the people that James Carvill & Baglia polled did not know who Pastor Wright was. If they didn't know who Pastor Wright was I doubt very seriously that they knew who Bill Ayers was either. Therefore the one name that stuck in their minds--the one name that they had heard before, came up with the most unfavorable rating & these two morons ran with it.

    Still LOL!

    I think it's great to be honest with you. They used very unreliable data in their poll to form the attack.

    They were polling people who did not pay an ounce of attention to politics. No one could have possibly missed Pastor Wright last year!

    We need a more advanced word for Moron--because these two guys have just crossed the moron line.

    I don't recall a POTUS ever attacking a radio personality before i heard BO do it.

    POTUS is supposed to be above that, even assclown Bush refrained from that.

    There were three things that made Rush popular:

    Sean Hannity said last year that he wants Obama to succeed. This provided a small boost in moderate and democratic voters to Hannity's audience. Anyone who listens to Hannity on the radio knows he's more moderate than Rush and a hell of a lot more moderate than Hannity on FoxNews.

    Obama told Republicans to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh. For a first-term, first-month, first-week president to even MENTION Rush would denote how powerful and influential Rush truly is.

    Then Rush did something no radio talk show host has ever done. He said he wants the president to fail. This caused a huge uproar among people and Rush's ratings have been phenomenal and Rush knows for sure that this is short-term so he's doing everything he can to milk this latest ratings boost.

    I don't think, though, that Obama did this by accident and I think Rush is playing right into Obama's hands. Rush Limbaugh's approval rating is lower than Bush's. If the Republicans are branded as the party of Limbaugh, moderates and Democrats aren't going to vote for Republicans because they can't stand Limbaugh.

    I think Limbaugh is actually HELPING Obama and the Democrats. Meanwhile, the conservatives are letting lose and airing their frustrations with Rush.. scaring away more moderates and swing voters. When 2010 comes and the economy is recovering - Obama and the Democrats will point out how the Republicans have been following Limbaugh who didn't want the country to succeed - they didn't want unemployment to go down, they didn't want the stock market to go up... etc.

    I think it's genius. I also think that Obama hasn't stopped campaigning and won't stop until 2013. He's already got a heads up on whoever his next opponent will be. The problem is that Rush doesn't know who his next opponent is going to be. It won't be Palin and it won't be Jindal. The Republicans are going to throw a sacraficial lamb at the 2012 election because the economy will have largely recovered by then.

    Issue is that most people hear that comment taken out of context and believe Rush wants the nation to fail and people to suffer simply because the Dems are in charge. Makes the Republicans look heartless and cold just as they have always been potrayed to be by the media and today's pop culture.
