CNN Quotes Rush: "Thank God for Obama"
CNN | 2 May 2011 | Nelson111

Posted on 05/02/2011 3:02:29 PM PDT by NELSON111

Today CNN quoted Rush Limbaugh, who said "Thank God for President Obama." What CNN did not make clear, however, was Rush was being HIGHLY sarcastic during his monologue and was thanking him for saying one thing and doing another. This is, of course, a fine example of what we are fighting in terms of MSM bias.

CNN basically lied to their entire viewing public without actually lying. The implication is that Rush was thankful for Obama and what he did in terms of bringing Osama to justice...which anyone who actually heard the monologue can tell you is not true.

I was looking forward to the show today...and was wondering how Rush was going to approach this. As usual, he did not disappoint. His take on the situation is something I would have never thought of. Now...his words are being taken out of context by CNN (deliberately). This is what we are facing and the media is the real enemy. If they would do their jobs and do it right...the dems would behave. They know they have this get out of jail free card with a press that won't do their jobs and are actively employed on minions for their cause. We have to stop them.

Those of you who are inclined....we need to let Rush, Hannity and BOR know what they did...so at least some others will know.

Actually, it might be good. Perhaps some of the loony leftists who only watch CNN will read that report and tune in to Rush to see exactly what he’s saying about it all. May get a few new listeners who normally wouldn’t tune in, at least for a day or two.

Rush was clear as a bell on so many hypocrisies of Obama and the left in general...but as usual he was preaching to the choir as the MSM does not cover the marrow, but just the out of context sound bites, to 'prove' their inane points

Most people laugh at CNN and such when they talk about Rush. They always do this to him.

Rush predicted it, as many did. The radically leftist, media made its choice as to what it would become quite a while back, and is totally predictable, and thus totally boring. Their ratings prove it. It serves one purpose, and that is to feed daily doses of “literal feces” to the mindless left to keep their base happy....after all, who else would buy their news papers or listen to their networks?

True...this isn’t the first time they have taken him out of context. Begs the question: Are they stupid are evil. And that isn’t an easy question to answer. LOL.

Yeah...hope it gets wide play that if it wasn’t for waterboarding...we wouldn’t have killed him. I know I plan on asking that question to my liberal neighbor who is flying his American flag today.

Just like the time movie critic Gene Shallot was reviewing the movie “Benji” saying it was just okay. At the end of the review he said:”Now it’s time for this message.” Guess what the media stated Mr.Shallot said about the movie in his review.

Liberals never say anything unless it advances the agenda du jour. If they have to quote their enemies, they will do so if what is said is powerful enough. But make no mistake. The truth, and any quote from Rush, will be cast aside in a New York Second the instant that it is not useful. And when distortion and spin are useful, those will be shamelessly used.

All in a day's "work" at CNN.

Later on his own show, Limbaugh was having fun reading MSM “news” stories about how he (allegedly) was praising Obama earlier!!! It was a hoot.

At one point Rush even game the media a hint when he said, “The liberal MSM just doesn’t get satire”.

Everytime BO said an I or me he just painted a bigger target on his own back. How stupid can one man be? Does he really think they will not take him out if given half a chance? WH has been a target once and they DO repeat.
