State-Run Media Totally Falls for Rush's "Thank God for Obama"
HALL: Rush Limbaugh opened his show praising the President, even thanking God for the moves -- this decision made by President Obama.
RUSH: Bill Ritter, WABC, Channel 7 Eyewitness News in New York from Ground Zero.
RITTER: Consider this: Even Rush Limbaugh today -- and there is no bigger critic of President Obama than Mr. Limbaugh, he -- said today, quoting now, "Thank God for President Obama." That, from Rush Limbaugh. Are the times changing or what?
RUSH: And Mara Liasson last night, NPR, All Things Considered. These bites, the last two, are four hours after this program ended yesterday. Here's Mara Liasson.
LIASSON: Rush Limbaugh was congratulating Obama today, so this is a moment of unity. This is what the president's whole brand is about.
RUSH: But they weren't fooled over at CNN. Well, they were fooled at CNN earlier, but the reporterette that they've assigned to essentially stalk me (a woman by the name of Carol Costello) this morning on CNN's Newsroom...
COSTELLO: Rush Limbaugh came out with a line saying, "Thank God for the President Obama," but he meant it very sarcastically. If you take a look his website he actually meant, "Congratulations, Mr. President, for Continuing the Bush Anti-Terror Policy."
RUSH: So a reporter who works this beat got the story correct.
