Did Rush Limbaugh just blame Obama for his failure to buy the Rams?

From http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4562338

Limbaugh says he believes he has been made an example by a players' union seeking leverage in talks over a new collective bargaining agreement. And he says he believes what happened to him was an illustration of "Obama's America on full display."

-----

It's amazing that my level of respect for this steaming turd could actually drop, but I think he might have pulled it off. Baby didn't get his toy and now comes yet another tantrum. I can't believe there are people out there who still take him seriously.

Re: Did Rush Limbaugh just blame Obama for his failure to buy the Rams?

In related news, Limbaugh stubbed his toe on a coffee table today.

"This is what we're in for, people," Limbaugh told his listeners. "We've let Obama come in and rearrange our furniture, and he's clearly trying to kill all of us. More proof that Obama hates Amercia."

Fortunatly, Limbaugh had a cache of painkillers to deaden the pain and further remove him from reality.

I can't believe anyone would care enough about the guy that they would keep up with anything he says or does, much less make a thread about it.

I agree, but he is the president.

You're calling that a tantrum?

I do find it amusing that the NFL will gladly let back in a guy who tortured and killed dogs and then even lied to the police about it.. but a talk show host who has said controversial things in the past.. THAT'S DRAWING THE LINE!

Yeah dog killers, people murderers, and drug addicts. All welcome in the NFL. But god forbid a talk show host might get his foot in there! That would just ruin the outstanding image that is the NFL.

True. If he can make a team, I say let him play.

That is obviously BS, they went in lockstep with the Lefties in this case. Limbaugh being an owner wouldnt have cost them any fans or money.

Once again a small but vocal group of people bully to get their way. I dont listen to Limbaugh, his arrogance gets on my nerves. But there was no reason to prevent him from being part of the group buying the Rams.

Why would Limbaugh give Obama credit for this? It would contradict Limbaugh's assertion that Obama hasn't done anything since inauguration.

I find it ironic that Rush would want to get involved with a socialist organization.

Many people view sports leagues as single organizations, not markets.

Re: Did Rush Limbaugh just blame Obama for his failure to buy the Rams?

I think it's funny that people think the NFL was bullied into any decision. The NFL does what it feels is best for its pocketbook. The negative press they felt they would receive from Limbaugh, was not worth it to them. Limbaugh doesn't put fans in the seats or increase ratings. Vick does, and that's why he straps on a uniform and plays today even though he killed some dogs.

You can't tell me the St. Louis Conservatives wouldn't have been an awesome team.
