Limbaugh claims Candy Crowley committed an ‘act of journalistic malpractice’?

So Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential footnote Willard Mitt Romney has his lunch handed to him on national television by the President of the United States and uber-right wing radio blowhard Rush “Rusty” Hudson Limbaugh III’s assessment is debate moderator Candy Crowley was biased towards President Obama

Rusty was especially outraged over Crowley’s fact-check of Mitt Romney on Libya, and bellowed she “kept feeding” Obama lines and interrupted Romney a total of twenty-eight times.

“In the real world, she would’ve committed career suicide last night,” he bloviated. “In the real world — in the media world I grew up in, her career would be finished.”

But wait, Rusty wasn’t finished, “She committed an act of journalistic terror or malpractice last night. If there were any journalist standards, what she did last night would have been the equivalent of blowing up her career like a suicide bomber. But there aren’t any journalist standards anymore. And she’s going to be praised and celebrated, probably even get a raise, give her another half hour on that show she hosts.”

In what world of reality is Rush Limbaugh qualified to comment on someone’s journalistic standards? First of all, one would need to have standards in order to judge someone else’s, and secondly, well, one would need to have standards in order to judge someone else’s.

Cheney says Obama should apologize to Bush administration?

Only someone as twisted and convoluted as former Vice President Dick Cheney would think the President of the United States owes the George W. Bush administration an apology after taking out terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki.

And what would be Darth Obtuses’ logic behind such a bizarre statement? Well, it appears while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, he said President Obama needs to apologize for his past criticism of how the Bush administration interrogated suspected terrorists.

The Obama administration “in effect had said that we had walked away from our ideals or taken policy contrary to our ideals when we had enhanced interrogation techniques,” the former vice president said. Al-Awlaki’s death indicates that members of the Obama administration “clearly have moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it’s justified,” Cheney said.

“You’d like an apology, it sounds like?” host Candy Crowley asked the former vice president.

“Well I would,” Cheney responded, “I think that would be a–not for me–but I think for the Bush administration.”

“I think it was a very good strike. I think it was justified,” Cheney added regarding the strike against al-Awlaki, CNN reports. But Cheney added, “I’m waiting for the administration to go back and correct something they said two years ago when they criticized us for ‘overreacting’ to the events of 9/11.”

Did Obtuses fall out of the idiot tree and hit every branch on the way to ground?

There is a world of difference on using a drone strike against a terrorist convoy and torturing a prisoner. One is an actual act of combat against a combatant; the other is the ploy of the international thug attempting to extract information.

Bush/Cheney committed acts in violation of international law when they authorized the use of torture against prisoners; President Obama acted decisively and took out a number of enemy combatants with one drone. When one is fighting a war – as in the war on terror – one uses bullets and bombs. The President doesn’t owe you – or Bush – anything; be grateful there weren’t investigations into your conduct and slink back under your rock.
