Another day, another Rush Limbaugh rant.
Monday found the host in particularly outraged flow against President Obama. Saying that it is clear that Obama "hates" America, Limbaugh fulminated in what could be seen as the ultimate synthesis of his anti-Obama views.
After playing a clip of Obama saying that every successful person had had some help on the way to their success, Limbaugh was off and running:
I think it can now be said, without equivocation -- without equivocation -- that this man hates this country. He is trying -- Barack Obama is trying -- to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream.
There's no other way to put this. There's no other way to explain this. He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: a radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great. He hates it.
It's not as though Limbaugh hasn't said these things before, but it's possible that he hasn't strung all of the details together quite as succinctly.
