Some Rush Limbuagh Quotes on the Nobel

From Time’s ”Swampland” blog (as you can imagine, they are not amused):

  • “Folks, I think the people who used to run the election board for Saddam Hussein’s government were hired by the Nobel people here to tally the votes.”
  • “Obama’s not only the first post-racial president, he’s also the first post-accomplishment president. He’s now judged on wishful thinking.”
  • “Obama gives speeches trashing his own country and he gets a prize for it.”
  • “I think Obama’s the second Kenyan to win.”
  • “The elites of the world are urging him not to do the surge in Afghanistan, not to take on Iran. How can he now send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan after that cotton candy speech he just gave this morning?”
  • “You are destroying your country as a superpower–keep it up, bud. These are the accomplishments they’re looking for. He’s basically emasculating this country and they love it.”
  • “He goes out there and admits he’s not qualified!” [followed by clip of Obama saying: “To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize.”]
  • “The Nobel Peace Prize is almost a straitjacket for Obama. That means he’s gotta be a man of peace. The way the left defines a man of peace is, everybody else can go to war but we won’t. Even if we’re attacked, first we’re going to try to find out why they don’t like us.”
  • “It really is insidious. The intent of the committee is to neuter the United States of America. They’ve done it by rewarding a pacifist.”
