Big, Fat Idiot
So, Rush Limbaugh recently said to troops in Afghanistan:
There are a lot of people in America who don't trust free people to do the right
thing. I won't mention a political party -- you all know it -- and I won't
mention the ideology -- you all know it.
First off, if the right "trust[ed] free people to do the right thing," the US could have pulled out of Iraq as soon as Saddam had been toppled. If the right "trust[ed] free people to do the right thing," the US wouldn't be fighting the insurgents who want to turn the country in an Islamic theocracy.
But that's not even my point here. My point is that if Rush "trust[s] free people to do the right thing," how come he spent eight years telling us that President Clinton and the Democrats, free people all, were doing the wrong thing? He's accusing the Democrats of not trusting Afghan warlords to "do the right thing," but he doesn't believe Americans in power will "do the right thing."
Quite a patriot, this man who trusts Afghani warlords more than a duly elected President of the United States.
