President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address was a “filled-with-lies speech,” and went against the principles of the nation’s Founding Fathers, Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday on his radio show.
“I’m listening to the most vacuous, empty, filled-with-lies speech — it was boring,” Limbaugh said. “That speech, yeah, it was a campaign speech . . . it was chock full of lies — it was fantasy land.
“In fact, there are a lot of facts that were omitted in the State of the Union speech,” he said. “He didn’t talk about the 13.1 million unemployed Americans — didn’t talk about the national debt. You realize one-third of our entire national debt . . . is his, his alone. Of course he didn’t bring it up. He didn’t talk about the Keystone pipeline.”
Limbaugh also scoffed at Obama’s references to teamwork, saying the Founding Fathers’ intention was a nation based on the freedoms of the individual.
“Teamwork?” he said. “Do you know, ladies and gentlemen, how wrong that is? The whole point of this government, the whole point of this country, the whole point of this [nation’s] founding was to champion the power, and the rights, and the civil rights, and the freedoms, and the liberty of the individual over the government.
“If anybody on our side running for office . . . is on their game . . . Obama unwittingly has tossed a softball with the bases loaded,” he said. “This is worth two grand slams.”
