Rush Limbaugh: "Thank God for President Obama"
This has to be one of the signs of the apocalypse -- Rush Limbaugh praising President Obama. But not just praise -- he uttered the words "Thank God for President Obama."
According to a report from The Huffington Post, Limbaugh of course started his radio show on Monday talking about the killing of Osama Bin Laden, saying, "We need to open the program today by congratulating President Obama. President Obama has done something extremely effective, and when he does, this needs to be pointed out."
Limbaugh said Obama deserves credit for sending in a Special Forces team to kill bin Laden. It was something he said that according to reports, 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."
Then he added the stunning, "Thank God for President Obama."
Limbaugh did throw in a kind word for former President Bush, saying policies started under Bush, which Obama continued, ultimately led to Bin Laden's killing.
