Rush Limbaugh: Obama Will ‘Hijack’ MLK Anniversary to Push His Own Agenda

Rush Limbaugh predicted today that at tomorrow’s events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, President Obama will “turn the occasion into something about him and his presidency,” promoting his personal political agenda on a day dedicated to the legacy of the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr.

Limbaugh noted how it appears Obama will address the impending budget battle and “attack the wealthy,” the latter a charge he found amusing, considering Obama will be joined by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx, and Forest Whitaker. Limbaugh mocked the idea that these people would stand before a crowd and “claim that they have everything in common with the audience that will be there.”

Limbaugh then shared what he believed to be the most cynical part of Obama’s expected remarks.

“To take the 50th anniversary of that event and to convert it–hijack it–into something to advance your political agenda, that’s as bad as wedding crashing, funeral crashing that the Clintons are famous for. This is really unseemly.”

Limbaugh added this is “close to these guys doing their Miley Cyrus impersonation.”
