Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh pointed to an example of what he calls the “Limbaugh Theorem” on Tuesday, arguing that the White House is actually agreeing with former President Bill Clinton that President Barack Obama should keep his Obamacare promise to the millions of Americans who are losing their insurance plans.
Limbaugh first played a clip of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney reacting to Clinton’s criticism:
“As you saw the president say in an interview with NBC last week, the answer is, yes, the president has tasked his team with looking at a range of options, as he said, to make sure that nobody is put in a position where their plans have been canceled and they can’t afford a better plan even though they’d like to have a better plan.”
“The president has tasked his team with looking at a range of options. Why, it’s the Limbaugh Theorem. Obama agrees with Clinton. He thinks he should keep his promise, too. ‘Yeah, I do. I think that guy who made that promise ought keep it.’ This is unreal!” Limbaugh mocked.
“Limbaugh Theorem right in front of your face. Obama agrees with Clinton, that that guy Obama ought to keep his promise, and he’s working real hard to make sure that that guy Obama keeps his promise,” he added.
As Limbaugh previously explained, the “Limbaugh Theorem” is the idea that Obama continuously positions himself as an “outsider” within his own administration. Because of this, “he appears to have this mysterious, powerful bunch of forces that are opposing him and stopping him,” the radio host said in July.
