WASHINGTON — He has publicly urged Republicans to vote for Sen. Hillary Clinton to keep the divisive Democratic nomination fight alive, but talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday he really wants Sen. Barack Obama to be the party’s nominee.

Rush Limbaugh urged listeners in states with open primaries to cross party lines and support Hillary Clinton.

“I now believe he would be the weakest of the Democrat nominees,” Limbaugh, among the most powerful voices in conservative radio, said on his program. “I now urge the Democrat superdelegates to make your mind up and publicly go for Obama.”

“Barack Obama has shown he cannot get the votes Democrats need to win — blue-collar, working-class people,” Limbaugh said. “He can get effete snobs, he can get wealthy academics, he can get the young, and he can get the black vote, but Democrats do not win with that.”

But Jamal Simmons, a Democratic strategist and Obama supporter, disagreed, saying the Democratic Party has “the best coalition to go out and talk to people across racial lines, which are the unions.”

  1. Yep, and we know how right Rush has been over the years about the Iraq War, Bush’s popularity, the economy, the 2006 election, and a dozen other issues.

    Franken’s Big Fat Idiot is just trying to position himself to claim credit for Obama being the Dem nominee and if he really thinks Obama can’t appeal to white folks, then he has to explain why so many came out to vote for him in such white-bread (and some Red) states as Maine, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Vermont and Iowa.

    Rush should also explain how Dems won in special elections in Lousiana and Illinois in formerly ‘safe’ GOP districts, even after the Right-Wing Smear Machine threw every nasty Rove ‘divide and conquer’ trick at the Dem candidate, and why Dems have a majority of the governorships now.

    The Republicans are washed up this year, and so is Limbaugh.
