Rush Limbaugh Just Asked The One Question About Obama’s Mosque Visit He Wasn’t Supposed To

In light of President Obama’s first official visit to a mosque while in office, he has received widespread criticism for both choosing a facility with links to Islamic extremism and thanking those in attendance for their purported contributions to national peace.

Some of the fiercest backlash came from syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh during his program Thursday. The veteran broadcaster used the controversial address to highlight some questions about Obama’s self-professed Christian faith.

“Why did he choose to become a Christian?,” Limbaugh asked, after painting a picture of the way Obama has characterized both Islam and Christianity.

“Barack Obama, he goes into this radical mosque in Baltimore [Wednesday],” he said. “He talks about how Islam has always been part of the fabric of America, and I stopped. I said, ‘Really?’ I didn’t know that.”

Not only does the president talk “about how awesome Islam is all the time,” Limbaugh continued, “at the same time, he’s out there, and look what he says about Christians. He says he is one. Look, he talks about them as bitter clingers and they hold on to their guns when they’re nervous.”

In light of his dichotomous position on the two faiths, the host wondered why Obama would have chosen to follow Christ.

“I’ve always wondered that,” Limbaugh concluded. “He’s such a defender and promoter of Islam, and, on the other hand, he and his party are constantly denegrating Christians. I don’t care what the issue is — whether it’s guns, whether it’s gay marriage, any cultural or social issue, or the ‘bitter clinger’ comments.”

 

Rush Limbaugh Just Revealed A Candidate He ‘Really Likes’ That’ll Stun A Lot Of People

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh named a candidate he “really likes” in the Republican nomination presidential contest on his radio program on Tuesday, and it is a name that might be a surprise to some.

Describing him as a “full-throated conservative,” the political pundit spoke very favorably of Sen. Marco Rubio. “He was the first to get out there. He hustled to get out there. As such, it made him look like the winner,” Limbaugh said“He had energy. I thought it was a great speech that Rubio gave last night. It was energetic.”

Limbaugh took some time on his program to shoot down the notion that Rubio should somehow be viewed as Washington, D.C.’s choice for office. “I don’t like this idea that Marco Rubio is all of a sudden being labeled as an establishment candidate,” he said.

The conservative believes if the label sticks, “Rubio is gonna end up becoming an enemy of several Republican — or many perhaps potential Republican— voters.”

Limbaugh acknowledged Rubio’s bipartisan “baggage” of the 2013 Senate bill on immigration reform. “Nobody’s pure, and nobody is ever free of making mistakes,” he said. 

“Marco Rubio is no moderate, Republican centrist,” Limbaugh contended. “I don’t see Marco Rubio as anything other than a legitimate, full-throated conservative.”

Limbaugh, who is a Florida resident, said, “I just remember the days that Marco Rubio was in the state of Florida, local politics, state politics, and then going national. He was considered, perhaps, one of the greatest potential heirs to Ronald Reagan, and now he’s being derided as a sellout member of the establishment.”

Rubio scores a 94 percent conservative rating on the Heritage Action Scorecard (the political arm of the Heritage Foundation) for his votes as senator, and a 96 percent with the American Conservative Union’s (the sponsor of CPAC). Cruz scores 100 percent on both. The average rating of the two senators with Heritage Action is 60 percent.

Limbaugh stated he also likes Sen. Ted Cruz. He noted in the two senators, “We have two genuine disciples of Ronald Reagan in the top three places in Iowa.” Rubio, 44, and Cruz, 45, would have both come of age, while Reagan was still in office and in his early retirement years, when he remained on the political stage.

Listen: Why Limbaugh Couldn’t Keep His Eyes Off Bill During Hillary’s Speech- ‘I Saw…’

As did most of his colleagues, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh dedicated much of his program on Tuesday to analysis of the Iowa caucuses held the prior evening. During one segment, the syndicated anchor discussed Hillary Clinton’s speech to supporters after eking out a razor-thin victory over rival Bernie Sanders.

Specifically, Limbaugh revealed his concern over the aged appearance of Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton.

“I saw it all,” he said. “I saw Prep[aration] H, I saw Geritol, I saw Fixodent, I saw Depends, I saw it all. I saw dripping saliva. I saw it all, folks.”

He went on to call the scene both “astounding” and “frightening” before segueing into the candidate’s performance.

“And in front of him, Hillary’s running around screeching like a bunch of seagulls that have been starved out near Alcatraz for a while,” Limbaugh said.

Clinton’s post-caucus speech earned harsh reviews from other conservative pundits, including National Review’s Jim Geraghty, who wrote that the address marked the beginning of “Hillary Collapse 2.0.”

She was also upstaged during her own event by a local college student with a mischievous streak.

Limbaugh also offered his take on the reason for Donald Trump’s second-place finish in the GOP caucus, placing the blame on the front-runner’s use of leftist tactics in attempting to smear competitor Ted Cruz.

“Nobody is going to believe that, especially when you offer that criticism sounding as though it could come with Bernie Sanders,” he said. “In a Republican primary, you do not win if you’re going to sound like a liberal Democrat criticizing Ted Cruz.”

Rush Limbaugh Just Exposed One Thing About Fox News That Could Lose Viewers – It Might Surprise You

With all eyes on the Fox News/Donald Trump debate feud filling the news cycle, many are wondering who is hurt most by the kerfuffle. If Rush Limbaugh is right, though, it seems the network is the one coming out worse for wear.

During his show on Wednesday, Limbaugh told his audience that many are telling him the network once hailed as the conservative news network is falling in people’s esteem. He said “I’m here to tell you Fox News is not considered the conservative network it used to be.”

Limbaugh continued, saying that where once “virtually everybody” thought of Fox News as “the conservative network,” people are now saying Fox is losing its conservative edge. The most-listened-to radio host noted that many people in public and private are telling him Fox has changed.

“You go out to the heartland of this country, and it’s not so much,” he told his audience.

The appearance of extreme left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show really raised Limbaugh’s eyebrow.

“What would a conservative network be doing giving time to Michael Moore? Why would New York Times and Washington Post reporters be on the air to give opinions on a conservative network?” Limbaugh said. “This is what people are saying out there… that I hear.”

While he pointed out that Fox is still “heavily tilted to news and analysis that you don’t get anywhere else,” the radio icon added, “I’m just telling you people’s perceptions as they share them with me.”

This isn’t the first time Limbaugh has told his audience that Fox seems to be moving away from its conservative leaning. He noted in 2013 that there have been several times when he wanted to go on Fox and argue against the GOP’s moves in Congress–such as the 2013 Gang of Eight amnesty bill–but was told they did not want to discuss those issues. Limbaugh called this “quite telling.”

“Now I told the people at Fox that I wanted to talk about this today three or four times and they wouldn’t do it,” he said in 2013. “They were not interested in bringing this subject up. I wanted to talk about this in relationship to the current state of the Republican party and they wouldn’t do it.”

Rush Only Needed 12 Words To Explain Why Trump’s Plan To Skip Fox Debate Is Brilliant

In the wake of GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s decision to sit out Thursday evening’s debate due to his assertion that host network Fox News has been unfair to him, pundits have argued whether the move will hurt or help the unconventional candidate’s campaign. For syndicated conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, however, the answer is simple: Trump will come out on top following his latest skirmish with the cable news leader.

During his broadcast on Wednesday, Limbaugh shared his opinion that the decision to boycott the final debate before Iowa caucus-goers select their favorite candidates is in keeping with Trump’s penchant for eschewing political norms.

“Anybody can do this,” Limbaugh said of the debate protest. “Ted Cruz could choose to do it if he wants to. They just don’t. Cruz and the rest of the pack are playing the rules of the game. Trump is saying, ‘I don’t have to. I don’t want to. I don’t have any respect for these people. What the hell?’”

Trump’s latest unorthodox move, however, might not be enough in itself to make him the debate winner in absentia, the host maintained. In fact, he said the Fox News Channel is actually playing into the candidate’s hands by giving him the attention he craves.

“Donald Trump knows that by not showing up,” Limbaugh said, “he’s owning the entire event.”

He cited Wednesday evening’s coverage on the network as “proof” of his theory.

“I have to tell you, folks, this is where it gets tough for me,” Limbaugh concluded. “If it had been me — and this is easy to say — if it had been me and Donald Trump makes a big to-do about not showing up for the debate, report the story and move on. Talk about Ted Cruz. Go talk about the other candidates. Go talk about Hillary and the FBI. There’s a lot of news out there, but don’t devote the rest of the night to how a candidate’s now showing up because of you.”
