"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," President Obama told House Republicans during stimulus negotiations on Friday. Limbaugh has encouraged Republicans to oppose the stimulus plan because it would give Democrats an electoral advantage by creating new jobs. He's also said he wants President Obama to fail.
On the radio Monday, Limbaugh said Obama wished the same for him.
"He's obviously more frightened of me than he is Mitch McConnell. He's more frightened of me, then he is of say, John Boehner, which doesn't say much about our party," Limbaugh said.
Limbaugh today planned to unveil his own bipartisan plan to "resolve the fight over the stimulus package."
"I think Obama wants me to fail," Limbaugh said. "President Obama, by telling you and the elected Republicans in Washington to not listen to me because I am not how things get done in Washington, he has said that he wants me to fail.
