President Obama has been getting high marks across the political spectrum — but not from his most consistent critic.

Radio talk icon Rush Limbaugh began his show Monday with a big thank you for the president and for the American military for their handling of the weekend Pakistan raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden. But the comments quickly took a sarcastic turn.


“President Obama has continued the Bush policies of keeping a military presence in the Middle East. He did not scrub the mission to get bin Laden. In fact, it may be that President Obama single-handedly came up with the technique in order to pull this off,” Mr. Limbaugh said. “The military wanted to go in there and bomb as they always do But President Obama, perhaps the only qualified member in the room to deal with this, insisted on the special forces. No one else thought of that.”
