Axelrod always seems to have his boxers in a bunch over something. Today, it’s Rush Limbaugh. On his program this afternoon, Limbaugh declared that Barack Obama “hates this country.”

Limbaugh argued Obama’s philosophy was not only un-American, it was aimed at depressives who needed to belittle successful people to feel better about themselves.

“This is a bunch of people that don’t count,” Limbaugh said, according to a transcript. “This is a bunch of people with miserable, meaningless lives who are lying to themselves; trying to tell themselves that they matter.”

Limbaugh said the young Obama was destined to become anti-American.

“He was indoctrinated as a child,” Limbaugh said. “His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: a radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great.”

Limbaugh can admittedly be dramatic, but based on Obama’s own words and behavior, his assertions are at least accurate.

So back off, David. Get back to us when your boss denounces his donor pal Pig Maher.
