    Obama is kicking ass. Even Rush had to give him some props. Kudos to Rush for showing some integrity and giving due credit....

    "Rush Limbaugh began his radio show Monday morning praising President Obama for his leadership in the demise of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

    In his nationally syndicated radio show, Limbaugh who has been one of Obama's fiercest critics, gave the commander-in-chief all the glory in the successful mission that ended the life of Public Enemy No. 1.

    "Ladies and gentlemen, we need to open the program today by congratulating President Obama," Limbaugh said. "President Obama has done something extremely effective and when he does, this needs to be pointed out. 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."

    Limbaugh, who has recently criticized the first lady's figure, said in 2009 that he hopes Mr. Obama fails, and complained last year about Americans donating to the post-earthquake humanitarian relief in Haiti, continued about Bin Laden: "You see the military wanted to go in there and bomb. They always do. They wanted to go in there and drop missiles and launch bombs. 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," Limbaugh said, with what some are saying is a slight tinge of sarcasm in his delivery.

    "Our military wanted to go in there and just scorch the earth," Limbaugh continued, "but President Obama single-handedly understood what was at stake here. He alone understood the need to get DNA to prove the death ... it was President Obama single-handedly and alone who came up with the strategy that brought about the effective assassination of Osama bin Laden," the radio host said, concluding, "Thank God for President Obama."
  2. It really amazes me how much emphasis the media is putting on this one event. The whole bit about bin Laden being Public Enemy #1 was about revenge. He is dead now. Is that really going to solve anything? You KNOW AQ has a whole line up of "evildoers" to take his place. Killing AQ leaders is not the way to solve the issue of terrorism.

    We must reduce our dependence on oil so that we can reduce our military presence in Middle Eastern countries so that we can stop making the extremists angry. When they're not angry they have no reason to attack us. This is simple human psychology people.

    Thank you, Rush, you may now resume your regularly scheduled bashing. ; )
  4. I guess some of you have never listened to Rush and can;t recognize his parodies and sarcasm. Obama was the "most qualified one in the room"? That pretty much tipped it off.

    And you have to love the way he mocked obama's incessant use of the false alternative.

    Ahh well, you can't fault us for assuming the best of the man.
  6. Yes, the sarcasm was fairly dripping. It didn't escape me. A true American, that Rush, able to ridicule a genuine national victory with loosely-veiled contempt.
  7. Hello


    What i find funny is that the left wing media ate it up, though i suppose this is the same left wing media who takes all of his jokes/sarcasm literally. The same idiot who wrote the article also took 2 of rushs other jokes literally in the same article.

    Maybe they're being sarcastic. ; )

    My bad. I didn't listen to it, just read what I read. I should have recognized 'single-handedly' as a tip off to his sarcasm.

    Well, the sad thing is that I lost that bit of respect that Rush had earned from me by giving Obama credit for something.

    Rush is still a douche
  10. Rush is a degenerate druggie who sings the same tune day after day for his faithful dittoheads. He has no loyalty but to his own agenda.
