Rush Limbaugh: Obama’s Speech Was ‘Personal Bitch Slap’ To Rep. Paul Ryan

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - [Yesterday] on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh joined the likes of Joe Scarborough and Charles Krauthammer in criticizing the tone of President Obama’s deficit speech, calling it a “personal bitch slap” against Paul Ryan and the other Republicans. He gave an interesting take, however, theorizing that Obama specifically chose to give the speech during the day because it wasn’t serious enough to give at night.

Rush Limbaugh: “What I meant by ‘He couldn’t have given that speech at night’ was it wasn’t serious. It had no gravitas. It was a campaign speech and the networks are not gonna give up primetime for a campaign speech. Not now. They will later on depending on how close the Republican nominee’s getting to Obama. I was simply talking about the speech itself, how unserious it was. Obama did not want to give that speech at night. Obama did not even want to give that speech yesterday to adults. He chose to give it to a bunch of young skulls full of mush at an institute for higher learning. And he relied on the drive-by media to report it by virtue of sound bites.”
