Rush Limbaugh began his show today thanking God for President Obama in regards to the death of Osama bin Laden. Of course, Rush was being facetious. Most of the monolog consisted of Limbaugh thanking Obama for still carrying out the agenda of George W. Bush, such as keeping Club GITMO open in Guantanamo Bay. During this opening segment, Rush Limbaugh sarcastically credited Obama as being the only person in Washington, DC who came up with a plan to send in a Navy SEAL team to either capture or kill Osama bin Laden. Early reports of top Pentagon officials originally proposed using two B-2 stealth bombers to annihilate the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, about 30 miles northeast of the capitol of Islamabad.

Of course, many in the media to Rush Limbaugh’s praise of President Obama seriously at first. The Internet became a-buzzed with stories. Even so-called legitimate news organs, like the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper commented about Limbaugh and his high praise for Obama. America is giddy with the news of Osama bin Laden’s death and rightly so. But many are still gullible even though they ought to know better.

While I was watching TV today, I was greatly amused by how emotional many on-camera personalities were on bin Laden′s demise. I lost count of how many people mixed up Obama and Osama bin Laden by name. President Obama bin Laden or Osama Obama. Even Glenn Beck during his show today, after fielding a marching band along with confetti and cookies to celebrate, accidentally said “killed Obama”. I’m certain that Media Matters and the like were all over that one.

So Rush Limbaugh praise for President Obama today at the beginning of his show was a joke. Later in the show he chuckled over the media′s reaction to it. Once again Rush proves just how flaky the dive-by-media is. The death of Osama bin Laden is indeed a good thing and Obama deserves some credit in trusting his advisers, the CIA and the Pentagon in carrying out the mission. But realistically, anybody sitting in the big chair would have made the same call.
