Rush Limbaugh Foolishly Theorizes That Al-Qaeda Wants To Make President Obama “Look Good” [LISTEN]

 

Rush Limbaugh’s attacks on President Obama have sunken to a new low. It’s one thing to have partisan views, but Limbaugh tip-toed further across the line of decency by claiming that al-Qaeda wants to help the president look good.

Limbaugh believes that the terrorist group sacrificed Osama bin Laden for the commander in chief’s gain, views which he shared on his radio show. “What do the militant Islamists want more than anything in the world? Israel gone is right,” he said, implying that Obama winning a second term would be a victory for Muslim extremists. “Even moderate Islamists wants Israel gone,” he said.  “What if Ayman al-Zawahiri and other al-Qaeda leaders gave up Osama bin Laden for the express purpose of making Obama look good? Giving Obama stature, political capital.”

Despite being seen as the mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorists attacks, Limbaugh believes that bin Laden was not as important to al-Qaeda as the public believes. “Al-Qaeda was not depending on Osama bin Laden for operational leadership. His day had come and gone. He’s expendable.”

In short, “militant Islamists” will be more “hopeful” of disposing of Israel under a Democratic president versus a Republican candidate like Mitt Romney, and therefore had to make a decision to appease the Obama administration.

The theory is dangerous on many levels, and while it does not imply that the POTUS had any knowledge of this alleged plan, it involuntarily links Obama to terrorist activity. Being that a healthy percentage of Americans believe that he is Muslim (and therefore linked to terrorism by default, a ridiculous theory that many adhere to), Limbaugh’s words plant a seed of ignorance in the minds of voters who lack a clear understanding of foreign policy, and could potentially sway the perception of the president in the minds of voters going into the forthcoming election.

    • THOMAS WREN

      He’s been the most listened to talk show host on the radio for over twenty years, where have you been? You seem to think that anytime you’re offended the person you’re offended by should be destroyed, are you that intollerant and hateful, or are you yourself on drugs?

      • Carol

        Regardless of how long he has been on the radio, he is still a hateful,mean toad

    I have read a hint you are listening to a sociopath is if they use “kill” or “die” etc. I will resist suggesting that re: Rush Limbaugh. I don’t want to be described as what his diagnosis is.

    Mitt Romney has proven himself to be inept at world relations. Even people in England found him offensive. The ramifications of Mitt Romney representing the U.S. during world matters (such as tensions in the middle east) scares the #!#!# out of me! Look out for WWIII !!!!

        Ohhhh, here we go. Do you folks just not remember the last ten years of your lives? Do you remember the surplus Clinton left us? Do you remember the debt Bush created? In what insane world do you live in where the financial black hole created by multiple foreign wars, frequent deregulation, and horribly criminal Wall Street business practices can be repaired in four years? I don’t care if you’re Republican, Democrat, or just Indifferent – our debt and employment problems won’t be fixed for years to come. It’s going to take multiple presidencies to fix it, and that’s only if we elect people who can do something about it.

      • D-san

        See, Wren, you diminish your credibility when you spend your time browsing news message boards in order to contradict and contest every single liberal with an opinion. All of your comments lack substance – they’re the political ideologue’s equivalent of “I know you are, but what am I?!” They make you look childish, and when every one of your comments looks like this, it’s real easy to figure out what’s driving you. Rather then spending time addressing one liberal comment with a well thought out reply (which is entirely possible, so don’t dodge the challenge), you’d rather tell fifty posters that they’re stupid morons who follow a secret Muslim president.

        Nice try buddy, but you should let the adults talk.

    Rush Limbaugh is a loud, insulting mouth piece who believes he is the authority of all world affairs. Those of us who disagreed with the previous administration,did not have this much negative print stated about “their president” and we all saw what his form of foreign relations did to our world. With the situation that is developing in the world today….how much “help” is Mr. Limbaugh doing, for the sake of peace??

    Well, maybe he went a bit far if he said that al-queda wants Bam to look good, but if you were a militant Islamist, who would you want to win the election? The answer is obvious.

      Just curious . . . what’s your EVIDENCE that the President is a radical muslim or any of the other traits assigned to him? Make sure it’s evidence and not more emotional garbage heard from Rush or Fox.

  • Need No Rush

    Who’s this Rush head case? Is he the one on his fourth wife and lays claim to conservatism? Was he able to get refills on expired prescriptions? Feel sad for the man. He wants his station in life but has to settle for mediocrity and a following of people you wouldn’t want in your neighborhood. There would never be community has we know it.

        Sorry . . . not true that the left is the “home of drug abuse” and you can’t prove that can you? Saying it, screaming it, writing it, declaring it, swearing to it . . . . doesn’t make it true.

  • Jet

    Question? What is one of the primary hallmarks of the Democratic party?
    Answer! They will make unreliable, unsubstantiated accqusations and try to pass it off as fact. Such is their tirade against Rush! All wind and no substance except for their unfound and delusional denunciations. By the way, can you guess from which end of their bodies this foul wind blows?

    • RubysGirl

      Real mature dialog.

    • D-san

      Accqusations? Even though I realize typos are not an accurate indicator of intelligence or lack thereof, I can’t help but see responses like this and think that some critical cognitive skills are completely absent from their authors. Look up the word you just wrote and tell me why I shouldn’t immediately dismiss your comment.

  • cmf

    If Rush Limbaugh says it, then it is TRUE (his accuracy rating is 99.7%). GOD
    BLESS Rush Limbaugh!!! Rush Limbaugh is our best ally. Rush Limbaugh LOVES, CARES and BELIEVES in this country (the UNITED
    STATES OF AMERICA). He knows that there
    is a constitution for the UNITED STATES OF
    AMERICA that was created by
    our founding fathers and Rush Limbaugh wants to ensure that it is followed by
    our leaders, and not manipulated and distorted for their own personal gain. PLEASE PLEASE listen to Rush Limbaugh…

    • RubysGirl

      OMG . . . please tell me where you got Rush’s accuracy rating of 99.7%. If Rush had real love for the United States of American, he wouldn’t be inciting his listeners to hateful talk. “PolitiFact reported that Rush has been given the lowest score … 31.7 percent of the time, followed by Glenn Beck at 38.8 percent. Six of the 12 claims by Limbaugh analyzed by PolitiFact were rated as either “false” or “pants on fire” – the lowest rating given by PolitiFact, a rating reserved for absolute fiction.You can see Bercovici’s full report, including a spreadsheet of his findings . . .

  • Kool_madness

    Looks like Limbaugh went off his meds…wait, he’s on his meds…Ok he got the wrong meds or he took his wifes meds. Hell Limbaugh is already screwed up enough. I think its time for rehab Rush.

    The Low here is the lying deceptive bias media. We need more voters like Mr. Limbaugh we wouldn’t have voted a Marxist/Socialist Muslim sympathizer in the WH in the first place.
    You brainwashed liberals are so sick minded that you can’t see what’s happening to our great United States. GOD HELP US! GOD BLESS AMERICA! If this post stays up, watch how the lefties respond. They aren’t much different than the Radical Muslims. 2013 recovery will begin and the chaotic mess we’re in will be reversed so fast you can’t even imagine. When it does, the sick minded liberals will give this President credit. You Liberals are so pathetic it’s almost unbelievable.

  • southern rock 9909

    the media is libera- just a fact. wait until after the election, there is always a count on negative articles for each candidate. after the last election, mccain had 73% to obams 27%. fair and balanced eh? numbers don’t lie folks. it is what it is.

    • RubysGirl

      It is not a “fact” that the media is liberal . . . that is propaganda espoused by Republicans, Rush and Fox. If media is fair, they will appropriately rate and determine the truthfulness and positions of candidates of all parties. If a party gets excessive negatives, they need to take responsibility for their message, thinking and source of the information they put out. “Fair and balanced” applies to giving all sides of an issue an opportunity to make their case. That’s never happened on FOX . . .the Tea Party Republican advocate. I long for the old time “County Club Republicans” that cared about working for the benefit of our county first – and not their political party.

    • D-san

      You do realize that Fox News is part of the media, right? Not only that, but it’s part of the MAINSTREAM MEDIA. Why the hell is that so hard for you guys to realize? The weird thing is that I’ve heard conservatives boast and brag about how Fox News has more viewers than CNN, MSNBC, and PBS/NPR combined, but then turn around and complain that conservative perspectives are being silenced. What a crock. In terms of pure media saturation, Fox News probably sits at the top of the pile and yet somehow, the liberals are just able to destroy every Fox News personality (not to be confused with reporter) and story with minimal work. Complete balderdash. When conservatives paint themselves as victims of a liberal media in spite of the truth I just described above, you have to wonder why they do it. Is it because they would rather play the victim card then get to the hard work of analyzing the American media machine?
