Limbaugh calls Obama a 'jackass'

(CNN) - Rush Limbaugh criticized President Obama's economic positions Tuesday during his radio show with some intense rhetoric, even for him.

"He's a jackass, he's an economic illiterate, he's an economic ignoramus and that's being charitable," Limbaugh said on his popular radio program.

Limbaugh was talking about Obama's tax policy and whether to extend the Bush era tax cuts for individuals making over $200,000 and couples making over $250,000.

He referenced a meeting the president had with his economic advisers this week.

"Here are these two experienced economists telling this neophyte little man child president, look you've got a confidence problem out there," Limbaugh said. "I do believe he's an idiot where capitalism is concerned."

Later in the show Limbaugh referred to President Obama as "our imam child."
