Limbaugh Blasts Obama's Thanksgiving Address

Friday, 26 Nov 2010 08:43 AM

Rush Limbaugh dissected President Barack Obama's Thanksgiving proclamation and found it riddled with cliches and other faults, according to a New York Daily News report.

Limbaugh called the Obama vision of the national holiday so "wildly distorted" that he first thought he was listerning to a "prank."

• "This Thanksgiving Day, we reflect on the compassion and contributions of Native Americans, whose skill in agriculture helped the early colonists survive, and whose rich culture continues to add to our Nation's heritage," Obama proclaimed in the official address.

But Limbaugh qualified, "…at their casinos and on their reservations."

• "This spirit brought together the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe — who had been living and thriving around Plymouth for thousands of years," Obama declared.

But Limbaugh crticized: "So, we were the invaders. The Indians were minding their own business. We were incompetent idiots. We didn't know how to feed ourselves so they came along and showed us how and that's what Thanksgiving is all about."

Limbaugh furthermore noted that Obama said "nothing about the Constitution in his Thanksgiving Day proclamation -- because" he's got a problem with it."

The controversial host then went on to give some of his own thinking on the important and historic holiday.
