Rush Limbaugh praises (and praises) Obama for Osama bin Laden takedown

Rush-Limbaugh

If it’s bad business to criticize your enemy, what do you do? According to conservative radio pundit Rush Limbaugh, you praise him. And praise him. And praise him until it’s clear you’re being disingenuous. “Ladies and gentlemen, we need to open the program today by congratulating President Obama,” Limbaugh began today’s show. “In fact, it may be that President Obama single-handedly came up with the technique in order to pull this off … Thank God for President Obama. If he had not been there, who knows what woulda happened.”

As his monologue continued, Limbaugh reverted to form, and the faint praise grew even fainter. “We’ve all seen President Obama last night on television announcing his single-handed involvement in securing the death of Osama bin Laden,” Limbaugh said. “We know that it was Obama who called off the bombing, insisted on the Special Forces. In fact, it was Obama who assembled the team. He said so. ‘I,’ ‘me,’ ‘my’ were three of the most used words in President Obama’s media appearance last night.

“Not a single intelligence advisor, not a single national security advisor or military advisor came up with the idea. Not one of them — not one of them, according to Obama — had the ability to understand the need to get DNA. This was Obama’s message last night. He said, quote, ‘I assembled the team.’ He refused to give the team the green light for the last three months, ’cause the team wanted to go in and create mayhem, and Obama alone — Barack Obama alone — knew the right way to do this.”

As Limbaugh proved, just because you have to say something nice, doesn’t mean you have to say it nicely.

How about water boarding suspects completely disregarding a simple law of our land “innocent until proven guilty “… Oh wait…that was Bush too. What did Obama do? Deregulating the banks, borrowing billions from the Chinese over 8 years while cutting the taxes on the rich meaning that everyone else is going to be forced to pay off with high interest rates, allowing the oil industry to be so relaxed and unregulated it lead to the BP oil spill, chipping away at the clean water act?

But that is NOT the case…I’m so happy to see all of these like-minded people commenting on what this mouthy moron spewed out of his pie hole….

        Regarding what the other idiot said (Rush Limbaugh), Of course Obama did not do it alone, but if he hadn’t caught Bin’dover Laden then they’d all be talking about how HE didn’t do HIS job, and how it’s no one else’s fault but HIS….then they’d proceed to try to put palin’s non-educated ass in the white house so yet another VICE pres could be in control (*simulated sneeze* ha chaney…)

      Limbaugh is such a putz. He failed to mention that the president was speaking as Commander in Chief, and taking responsibility for allowing the operation.

    • Why can’t we keep politics out of this fantastic achievement from the Navy SEALS

      ….Just a typical

      • c medi

        The fact that Obama used the words I,me,my was used to remove all blame from any member of his cabinet or the military. This was done to indicate he is the responsible one whether the outcome of short or long term effects be good or bad. Heck of a gamble on his part but truly a sign of a great leader

  • Crystal

    It’s funny how he never said any of that and frequently referenced the specials operation team members who did the raid . . . knew the conservatives would find something to b**ch about.

    • Kelly

      I’m not a Republican by any means, but there was a whole lot of “I” and “my” in that speech! My husband, an Afghanistan war veteran, was pissed!!

      • Z

        by my count he said I nine times in a nine minute speech, 4 of which were referring to the buildup and planning on the operation. What did you think he was going to speak in the third person? He’s the commander in Chief, he says I because he’s taking responsibility for an operation which was carried out by his order. Just like every other president. I know you cant stand him but every now and then you can give a guy credit for a job well done.

      • Kat

        I too was rather surprised by how much the speech discussed Obama’s own role…but I agree with Z. The man DID assemble a team and he DID give the order to go in. Yes, he’s got advisors, but in the end, he’s also got the sole responsibility of making the decision. I think it’s reasonable that he took some of the credit for decision-making and authorization.

      • Ashley

        OMG he only said “I” when saying he gave the order! And why shouldn’t he? He’s the President, he DID give the order. He went on about the brave troops and other people involved. Some people will latch onto anything to criticize.

      • Lee

        Kelly, maybe President Obama did that because he knew the Republicans would not give him any credit. And after watching FOX News–he was right!

      • @Kelly

        You’re not a Republican? Sure. And I’m sure your Afghanistan war veteran husband only thought about how many times the President said “I” or “My” instead of the news about Osama bin Laden.

        Turtles can breathe out of their butt, which is incredible, considering most Republican / Tea Bagger humans can only talk out of theirs.

    • Art

      Yes, but those are facts that he didn’t take the full credit. What matters are the Republican Talking Points, which today, instruct them to go forth and pretend that the president took full credit without acknowledging anyone else. Because the angle of taking down the opponent is always more important than “facts” or “what’s best for the country.”

Oh right, I was sitting in my office (not my couch) as the stock market improved, as the job market improved, as both the business and private sector improved. You’re right in that the economy isn’t completely back to where it was yet, but to say it hasn’t improved is like Charlie Sheen hasn’t messed up his life at all.

      • Steve

        Loch Ness- Why don’t you back up that statement. Our country is beyond broke after Obama’s spending spree. The preivate sector hasn’t added enough jobs to effect any type of change at all. Obama spent more money than every president before him combined in his first two years. Then, when the Chinese wanted their monthly loan payment, Obama gave them one of our banks. Our current President was the biggest mistake to ever happen to Democrats and black people. He’s set both of them back a hundred years. Pretty soon, we’ll all be speaking Chinese and you will have him to thank.

        What amazes me is that President Obama has only been in office for over 2 years. He inherited a War and the economy. Yet you want to forget that and put the peeple who got us in this mess back in control. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, but vote for the right reason and take responsibility for your part as well.

      • jim

        Addison, Obama gets blame for the US still being in the Middle East. He promised that we would start to back out by now.

        @Vince, $5 gas may be a good thing if it forces us to make cars that don’t run on gas, reducing our dependancy on oil.

        ..and the ecomony is slowly recovering because Obama kept the Bush tax cuts. If those went away the economy’s momentum would have stalled.

      • @Jim

        “$5 gas may be a good thing if it forces us to make cars that don’t run on gas, reducing our dependancy on oil.”

        Liberals have been saying this for 20 years and guess what we are still dependant on oil because no econmically viable solution has been found. $5 a gallon is never a good thing. How you can say it is is mind boggling stupid. Every aspect of your life is more costly because of these prices (and this president). Food, commuting, rent, travel, household goods. Everything. And you know what else? There is a TON of oil located in the US but we cant use because of liberals and treehuggers.

        Please leave your bubble and join the real world.

        By the way I voted for Obama the first time. I will not this time.

        This is not the change I wanted

      • Lee

        @Vince & @Jim: How did President Obama have anything to do with gas costing $5 a gallon? If anything, he wants to correct it by implementng an investigation into all this. If you want to blame someone–blame the stupid speculators who raised the cost of crude oil. Or, if you’re still in the mood to blame someone else–then why don’t you blame Libya for its Civil War. Grow up. This is the world in which we live, and the President of the U.S.A. can’t control everything–including the wars in the Middle East, the speculators, and gas prices.

        VINCE – correct. It wasnt 0 when Obama started but he has added more to that number than any other president. Including Bush. And some of it came from two wars (now three – why are we in Libya again?) but most came from wasteful spending and two failed stimulus bills, and blowing up the size of the government. Those are Obama’s own policies and failures. Cant really blame those on others can you?

      • Ashley

        @Bob
        Gas prices raising again is not a reason to vote against someone, sorry. Gas prices went way up during Bush’s presidency too. And Obama has been saddled with a lot of his mistakes. People started criticizing him straight after he took office. Flip flopping between parties will do this country no good, especially if someone like Bush gets elected again who will probably just make the situation worse.

      • @Ashley

        Ashley – maybe read everything before you mouth off. $5 gas is one reason i mentioned. The others you failed to mention:
        wasteful spending, two failed stimulus bills, blowing up the size of the government. I can also add high unemployment, bad leadership, high inflation, terrible foreign policy, etc.

        Dont tell me how to vote. I dont need mouth breathers like you telling me what to do and think.

      • vinmac

        TARP Started under Bush morons.

    • Levelheaded

      @pjm – Exactly you can’t have it both ways – blame him solely for all bad things and give him no credit for all good things.

      That makes no logical sense.

    • andy

      no that would be too logical for Rush and his GOP autobots

  • Hope

    I’m surprised rush would turn on his own party like this. Sounds like he’s praising O for something OUR men did while our fearless leader was at a dinner party. Have I lost this much faith in humanity? As of now..a lot.

    • Hope

      Read through it again. Way to go Rush for sarcasm. I me and my HAH! Classic.

      • @Hope

        You are really, really dumb. Go play and let the grown-ups talk.

      • Hope

        Why? Is it because I responded to myself after reading through it again? I’m not the dumb one.

      • Mike B

        Yea, you are all stupid! Lets keep fighting amongst ourselves while both parties keep screwing us! OMG, wake up!

    • Ashley

      A dinner party? Really? All the former Presidents have a White House Correspondence Dinner…why should Obama be criticized for it?? The mission was already ordered by then. Do expect the President to go do it himself?

  • Necro

    Rush Limbaugh just continues to prove he’s a pig, as does Trump and all those who continue to bash President Obama all the while he’s doing an incredible job. Bush/Cheney broke down our country and President Obama is building it back up. That’s what I want. That’s what I vote for.

    • jim

      Talk about Kool-Aid drinking. Obama is harding doing “an incredible job.” That, both sides can agree on.

      • olivia

        Er, no they can’t. The Tea bag right may hate him, but the Left certainly doesn’t. We have complaints but at the end of the day, he’s our president. I think the vast majority of us will vote him in 2012.

  • Brett

    Bush captured Sadaam like Obama caught Osama

    • Lee

      Bush made things worse by capturing Hussein. What are you talking about? Iraq went from being Sunni-dominated to Shiite dominated. In case you don’t know, Iran is Shiite dominated. So what Bush did was not only strengthen the terrorists but also Iran. And to top all that off–we never did find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The whole war in Iraq was a waste of time, money and lives. You can thank Bush for that. (Like Limbaugh, I’m being sarcastic.)

    • Kick-A55

      It’s so nice to see some people swallow their pride, and give credit where it is due..Great job, President Obama..

  • OMGosh

    The sad thing is a lot of people do care what Rush thinks. Just as Osama had his looney followers, so does Rush.

  • Barb

    This fat ass needs to shut up. When will he OD and put us all out of our misery? He contributes nothing but negative, racist rants. What morons find him credible?

    • Tanya

      You wish an overdose on someone that you accuse of negativity and racism…classic!

      • @Tanya

        Stupid much??

      • Tanya

        LOL Thanks for proving my point! Namecalling…again, classic… No, really…that made me laugh out loud…

      • @Tanya

        Off your meds again?

      • Tanya

        Put down the shovel…the hole you’re digging is getting pretty deep! I swear you must have a checklist at hand of how to argue like a liberal…call them: negative, followed by racist, stupid, mention that they must be off their meds, bring it around the bend with tea bagger, knuckle dragger, make a statement about their trailer, and enter the home stretch with tin foil hat, Nazi, and win by a nose with a reference to their pointed hat wardrobe. You’re so predictable…what a pity. Oh, I forgot to add “kick your dog much?”. That’s always LOL worthy…

      • Tanya

        Oh yeah…”moron”. How could I forget “moron”?!

      • MikeM

        I LOVE you Tanya. You’re just so damn logical! Well done…

      • @Tanya

        Wow, you are Off your meds.. call Rush, maybe he will share.

      • Tanya

        Dang Barb! You disappointed me…we had a betting pool going and you came back with the “meds”. Oh well…gotta go take my kids to dinner and a movie. Have a nice life!

  • And…

    …I praise Rush Limbaugh on his swift takedown on that bucket of fried chicken situation. Way to go, lard@$$.

    • Tanner A.

      I want to slap him in the chins.

    • @And

      Wow, are you always a racist a hole?

      • at@and

        Since when is fat a race?

      • Lee

        LOL

    • Jon Mitchell

      Racist. Say what you like, you’re a low-life racist and you know what we’re talking about. Or, you could just go on playing dumb, you do that so well.

  • The Donald

    The ironic thing is that Rush’s usual listeners won’t pick up on the sarcastic tone, and thnk that he actually is praising Obama.

    • @The Donald

      A lot of people aren’t picking up the sarcastic tone. Stupidity isn’t a partisan trait; it’s a human trait.

      • LOL

        While it’s true that not all Republicans are stupid, it is true that all stupid people are Republicans.

      • Sharon

        I think sarcasm is very tough to translate

      • jim

        “While it’s true that not all Republicans are stupid, it is true that all stupid people are Republicans.”

        That’s what my really smart, tree-hugging, pot dealer says.

      • Ed H

        Left, right middle- come on …being a republican or democrat means that is the company you work for and the goal is to keep your job- period. We are the morons who pay them. Now if you voted independent, even communist or write in , you are not a moron.

    • whit

      No, it’s just us hopeful independents that thought that perhaps sanity had returned to the airwaves. Oh well, I guess the name-calling and finger-pointing will continue. And people wonder why this country is in the crapper.

      • Sharon

        UPDATE: Later in his broadcast, Limbaugh read out one of the reports about his comments which suggested he was praising Obama. While he read the report, from The Hill, Limbaugh laughed heartily before moving onto a caller.
