    ....The image of Rick Perry and Barack Obama that has been circulating is worth 300, at most. The above “side-by-side comparison,” tweeted by David Limbaugh, has torn through the Internets of late. It’s supposed to be a “side-by-side comparison.” True, Obama is not actually 22. He’s 20.

    RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 26 first, Mike. I didn't know we'd get to this this early. I asked Cookie to put together a little montage here of all the stuttering around that Obama did in his press conference today and I want you to hear this because -- and we didn't repeat anything here. It goes 46 seconds, and we're doing this because we hear constantly, "What a great orator and a great communicator! Ohhhh, this man is smooth!" Just listen.
