Wanna be shocked by Rush?

 

Rush Limbaugh did something he rarely does: he praised President Obama on his Monday show for the death of Osama bin Laden.

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

The effectiveness, he said, came from President Obama's decision to send a Special Forces team to kill bin Laden--something he said, citing news reports, that none of the president's military advisers had thought of doing.

"Our military wanted to go in there and just scorch the earth...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," he said, adding, "thank God for President Obama."

Limbaugh also said that it was Obama's continuation of President Bush's military and detention policies that provided the intelligence which led to bin Laden's killing. (He also made the by-now-common gaffe of swtiching Obama's and bin Laden's names around in his sentences.)

    Everytime we debate the wars I ALWAYS say there should be a WAR it should be a special ops mission....Multiple missions...you can go back as far as you'd like and see that has ALWAYS been my answer....

  • Wishful thinking Carpy. You just WANT everyone to put down the President. But wishing won't make it so. How sad for you.
