The New York Post has an interesting story about a potential golf outing between President Barack Obama and Rush Limbaugh. According to Zev Chafets, when asked if he would play a round with Rush this is what was said by Obama, “Limbaugh can play with himself.” Of course Rush can play with himself has several connotations.

Zev Chafets is a former columnist for the New York Daily News and other well read publications; he’s writing a book about Rush entitled, “Rush Limbaugh: An Army Of One” which is due out this month. Chafets reportedly told Limbaugh he should get together with Obama and play a round of golf.

Rush told Chafets that if he were asked to play golf or meet with any President [including Obama] he’d do it out of respect for the office. He then told Chafets that that would never happen. Chafets asked Rush if he could try and set it up.

After trying to contact David Axelrod to no avail, Mr. Chafets contacted an unnamed Democratic activist who relayed the message. The response from Obama? “Limbaugh can play with himself.” It’s not entirely clear whether Obama actually said this or whether it’s how the activist relayed the message. Also not clear is the context of the response, what exactly is meant by “Limbaugh can play with himself?” Surely you good folks will have your own theories.

Limbaugh, never at a loss for a good comeback responded to the apparent response by Obama, “Limbaugh can play with himself,” by saying that these guys were confusing him with Bill Clinton. Once again a response with many connotations.
