But he really doesn’t.
You see, Rush lies when he says that Obama continued Bush’s hunt for OBL. Or, perhaps he just forgets, that Bush declared back in 2004 that capturing/finding/killing Osama Bin Laden was not on his radar. So, had Obama continued the Bush policy as it pertains to Osama Bin Laden, OBL would still be alive today.
Here’s a quote from Bush about Osama Bin Laden:
“I don’t know where [Osama bin Laden] is. You know, I just don’t spend that much time on him to be honest with you … And I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s at the center of any command structure. And, again, I don’t know where he is. I — I’ll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him.”
So, yeah, the next time you hear a tea bagging blow hard talking trash about how Obama merely followed Bush’s lead, and that Bush deserves the credit, you can now correct them with something called “the facts.”
