Here’s something you don’t see every day: Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh not only quoting Democratic strategist James Carville at length but also agreeing with him.

The cause for the accord between two people more likely to cross swords than shake hands was a Carville column in which the former Clinton adviser said it’s time for President Barack Obama to panic because his presidency is going downhill so fast.

“We are far past sending out talking points,” Limbaugh quoted Carville’s CNN column during his show today. “Fire a lot of people. Don’t accept excuses. Demand actions now.”

Limbaugh also belittled Obama’s American Jobs Act and stated that the proposal is doomed.

“It is not going to be passed,” he said. “There’s no way this jobs bill is even going to get a vote in the Senate.”

He called into question the results of a recent Gallup poll that reveals more Americans want the American Jobs Act to pass rather that fail.

“You’re being scammed,” Limbaugh said. “There’s no jobs in that bill. All it is is tax increases.”

“Mr. President, if you love us, you’ve got to lower our taxes,” he said, mimicking the president’s speech Wednesday in Raleigh, N.C. “Mr. President, if you love us, you’ve got to help us make our house payments.”

Instead, Obama is “channeling Harry Truman” as he faces a “do-nothing Congress.”

“This is not going well,” Limbaugh said. “They’re in sheer panic out there.”
