Rush Limbaugh on Ben Carson: 'Steel-Fisted Tough'

Rush Limbaugh on Ben Carson: 'Steel-Fisted Tough'

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh Tuesday praised Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson for remaining firm on his remarks on whether a Muslim should be president, saying that the retired pediatric neurosurgeon's resolve proved that he was "steel-fisted tough."

"He has this image of soft-spoken, certainly not steel-fisted tough, but he's demonstrating that that is exactly what he is when necessary," Limbaugh said on his afternoon program.

"I think it's an upper. I think it's a positive. It's an amazing phenomenon to actually see Republicans doubling down rather than apologizing, rather than backing off, rather than caving, rather than clarifying, rather than trying to do damage control."

Carson has been attacked since he said in a "Meet the Press" interview on Sunday that he would not support a Muslim as president of the United States.

He doubled down on the comments Tuesday, blaming the nation's "politically correct" media for the dust up and calling his comments "theoretical."

Carson also said that any president of any faith must place the Constitution above their personal religious beliefs.
