From his home and on a friendly network, Rush Limbaugh lobbed potshots across the airwaves Sunday at President Obama — “immature, inexperienced, in over his head,” offering the country “radical leadership” and laying siege to the economy.
“We’ll let Mr. Limbaugh foment,” responded the White House’s chief political strategist, dismissing the conservative commentator with the reported $400 million contract (”I’m probably worth more,” Mr. Limbaugh said) as no more than an entertainer and not really the right guy to give “lectures on humility.”
The banter began on the hour long “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Limbaugh the lone guest, interviewed from his home in Palm Beach, Fla., on a network the Obama administration has labeled as the voice of the far-right wing of the Republican Party. Obama adviser David Axelrod swung away later in the morning from Chicago on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
