It's Bush's policies that led us to bin Laden, says radio host

(Newser) – The Obama administration shouldn’t be patting itself on the back for finding Osama bin Laden—it should be apologizing, says Rush Limbaugh. And so should the entire “American Left” for "taking every opportunity to undermine" the Bush-era policies that ultimately led to bin Laden's death. “Virtually every tool, every apparatus, every technique, every policy used to affect a successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden was employed by this current administration,” Limbaugh said today. But "Barack Obama campaigned against the very enhanced interrogations that have made him a hero."

Obama should now be thanking his predecessor, said the radio host. Instead, his administration is claiming “credit for being gutsy and courageous when none of this would have been available to them had they had their druthers.” Oops, writes Jon Bershad at Mediaite. "All of us naive people who imagined a country united by the destruction of a common, hated enemy" clearly made a mistake. "We totally should have envisioned the inevitable pissing match over who deserves the most credit and who got thanked enough." Click for more from Rush Limbaugh on Obama.
