Rush Limbaugh: ‘It’s Kind of a Crock’ for Obama to Blame Me for Partisanship

Rush Limbaugh is responding to President Obama taking one final shot at how he and Fox News contributed to partisanship during his presidency.

Obama has expressed occasionally over the past eight years––most recently in an NBC interview last week––that “folks like Rush Limbaugh and some commentators on Fox News” helped Republicans “create… an environment in which Republican voters would punish Republicans for cooperating with me.”

Limbaugh said today that Obama “came into office blaming me and telling the Republicans they have to stop listening to me” in the interest of “trying to marginalize conservative opposition”:

“It’s kind of a crock here for the guy to blame me for partisanship in Washington. I’m never there. I’m a guy on the radio. Admittedly, a powerful, influential member of the media guy on the radio. But nevertheless I’m not there. But the noteworthy thing here is how he exempts himself from any of the reasons for partisanship.”

He argued that Obama only cares about partisanship when it’s opposition to him.
