Limbaugh has recently made some changes to his office.
(ST. LOUIS) While Barack Obama was overseas recently, Rush Limbaugh told The Peoples News that he’s completely smitten with the president.
“Oh sure, I hate the guy’s economic plans and every strategy that he’s come up with for America—but I just can’t help myself. I really like him,” Limbaugh said in an exclusive interview.
When asked if he liked him liked him, or just liked him, Limbaugh, an ardent conservative, said he couldn’t ask and couldn’t tell.
Limbaugh waited until the president was overseas to spill his true feelings, because he didn’t want Obama to find out. But his man crush has been obvious. He’s been a constant thorn in Obama’s side, and earlier this year even told his millions of listeners that he hopes Obama’s policies to lead America out of its economic turmoil fail. All of it was to deflect his true feelings.
“Oh yeah, on the radio, he’s all like ‘I hate Obama, I hate Obama,’ but when that light goes off, he’s all like ‘Do you think he knows who I am?'” said Limbaugh’s BFF Tom Hazlett, a professor at George Mason University. “He’s so weird like that.”
Limbaugh said Obama has won him over. He said he realized his mistrust was misplaced.
“When Obama speaks, you can really understand him and get his point. I’m just not used to that, and so I didn’t trust it,” said Limbaugh, who said the last truly eloquent president was his idol, Ronald Reagan. “Once I got used to a president who I felt was smarter than me, I warmed right up to him.”
Several of Obama’s aides said they were surprised by Limbaugh’s conversion, but the President told The Peoples News that he expected it.
“Look, everyone loves me, sooner than later,” he said in a sitdown interview at the Oval Office. He then flashed his confident smile and we too were his.
Limbaugh said he will continue denouncing Obama’s economic policies, but with a little less vinegar than before.
“It’ll be like an old married couple bickering, only with a little bit more love,” he said. “Rush is still right, but now with a slight nod to the left.”
