    about the president tonight... Even Rush started off his show with some pretty emphatic praise for the president tonight, singling him out as "the only qualified member in the room to deal with this."  And O'Reilley has always struck me as be as being one of the more reasonable of the conservative pundits... Not saying much, of course, but I'm interested to see what he says tonight.

    •  well, your link is broken. And until it's fixed (0+ / 0-)

      I'm going to call bullshit when it comes to Limbaugh showing "emphatic praise" to the President.

      When your link works and I see the quote, complete with what I suspect to be a huge caveat, I'll apologize.

        But if you watch the video in the new link I posted, the first 3 or 4 minutes are pretty much praising Obama... The money quote

        "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. You see, the military wanted to go in there and bomb as they always do. They wanted to drop missiles and drop bombs and 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."

        Coming from Rush Limbaugh, that ain't bad.

        •  That was a snarky comment (0+ / 0-)

          Only Obama could have possibly thought of this. How could the military think of something so brilliant as a military raid. Only Obama was smart enough to think of this.

          ... complete snark.

        He offered one line of praise for Obama finishing "Bush's mission." He also said it was suspicious that Obama planned his speech to pre-empt the ending of Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump.

        On that note, I want to add that Pakistan would have never told the Bush administration a damn thing about Bin Laden.

        •  And at this moment, Rush and a caller (paid actor) (0+ / 0-)

          are debating the merits of Rush "praising" Obama for continuing Bush's policy. The call will continue after the break, at 33 minutes after the hour ...
