President Barack Obama is jettisoning working-class voters and is targeting the unemployed and others who rely on entitlement programs in order to win in 2012, Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Monday.
Limbaugh, citing an article in The New York Times titled “The Future of the Obama Administration,” said the president already has begun ceding those constituents.
“If you work, we don’t want you,” Limbaugh said of Obama’s campaign message. “If you work, we know you don’t want us. If you work, you’re the targets. If you work, you are the people we are gunning for. If you work, we are coming after you to make sure that the other elements of our constituency are able to eat — that’s what the Obama coalition is saying.”
Limbaugh said The Times article also pointed to the educated and the elite as groups the Obama campaign is trying to enlist.
“You throw people who work who are white overboard, and instead your coalition includes the eggheads who have taught all these people the entitlement mentality and the entitlement-mentality recipients,” he said. “Here’s Obama . . . saying you are who we’re looking for.”
Limbaugh said he thinks the news is “a big deal” because it’s the first time the Obama administration has gone on record ditching the working class.
“The Democrat Party and Obama are making it official: We’re going after life’s losers, and we’re going to empower them,” he said. “We’re going to make them the reason we win.”
