(Newser) – Right-wing trumpet Rush Limbaugh absolutely tore into President Obama yesterday, calling the commander in chief a "jackass," an "economic ignoramus," and an "idiot," over his support for extending the Bush tax credits to all but the top 2%. Obama said at a speech before the Economic Recovery Advisory Board that the wealthy would “take our ball and go home” if the tax credit isn't extended to at least most of the rich.

Limbaugh responded: “Mr. Obama, our imam-child, they have already taken their trillion-dollar ball home, and they’re sitting on it, you jackass." The talk show host believes keeping the tax breaks for everyone, including the very wealthy (like Rush?) would "inspire confidence," notes ABC News. And Limbaugh's not likely to back down, calling his comments "charitable."
