Writes Christopher Manion at the LewRockwell.com blog:
“Pretending to respond to Colin Powell, who apparently likes New York City values just fine, Rush Limbaugh distances himself from Bush — and himself — while he tries rewriting history just like the master, Cheney.
Limbaugh slavishly cheered on the illegal war, the wiretaps, the whole enchilada, as he used to say, for the entire Bush presidency (by the way — are we there yet? Is it over?)…
Now Rush will target Obama, pretending that his boy Bush had nothing to do with the socialism, the moral collapse, the international disasters, and the financial maelstrom that plague our country. Today. While Bush is still president. During the Bush presidency.
As president, Obama, while inheriting all the unconstitutional power that Bush foolishly accrued to the office, will be able to say, “Hey, don’t blame me! Bush did this to you!”
Yes Bush did. And Rush cheered him on.”
