Rush Limbaugh wasted no time today in decrying Dr. Donald Berwick, President Obama's nominee for administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. After distorting remarks made by Berwick to portray him as “a socialist” and “a redistributionist,” Rush argued that Democrats oppose a hearing for him because “we would hear that death panels are in, and here to stay, in Obamacare.”
Rush moved on to immigration and the Justice Department's decision to sue Arizona over the state's new immigration law. Rush claimed that there is no racial profiling in the law, adding that the Obama “regime has been lying about this aspect” of the bill since it came up.
Additionally, Rush discussed the latest investigation clearing Climatic Research Unit director Phil Jones of any wrongdoing in “Climategate.” Rush asserted that global warming is “a sham,” adding that scientists are “circling the wagons” to protect climate change “hoaxsters.” Toward the end of the show, Rush described Jones' stolen emails as “diabolically untrue,” and claimed that “trying to reason with” global warming “hoaxers” “is like trying to reason with a suicide bomber.”
Rush also claimed that “all that counts” to Democrats “is the left-wing agenda.” Rush even offered two “extreme examples” to prove his point, asserting that Obama would pardon Charles Manson and Osama bin Laden to further his agenda.
Here are some highlights from the show:
