Have you, too, heard the sound of Rush Limbaugh patting himself on his gross back all afternoon? Because he sure pulled a quick one on the liberal media today! He opened his radio show by heaping praise on the president, even saying "Thank God for President Obama." Hey now... really?
He went on:
President Obama has continued the Bush policies of keeping a military presence in the Middle East. He did not scrub the mission to get Bin Laden. In fact, it may be that President Obama single-handedly came up with the technique in order to pull this off. You see, the military wanted to go in there and bomb as they always do. They wanted to drop missiles and drop bombs and a number of totally destructive techniques here. But President Obama, perhaps the only qualified member in the room to deal with this, insisted on the Special Forces. No one else thought of that. President Obama. Not a single intelligence adviser, not a single national security adviser, not a single military adviser came up with the idea of using SEAL Team 6 or any Special Forces.
Outlets like The Hill, National Journal, Mediaite, Time, and others all reported this straight at first. But listen to the clip up, as he sarcastically stresses the parts about Obama being the only person in the room ever to think of this mission and he should get all the credit. He's just pullin' your leg, people. He hates Barack Obama!
Limbaugh was cracking up later in the show at those who took him seriously. It's so sad. He's a terribly sad man. We're glad he was able to laugh at his wacky jokes today, if it helped ease the pain.
