Limbaugh Lies Again

But when you take your cues from Liz Cheney, you're pretty much guaranteed to be lied to.

A few days go, President Obama went to Dover AFB to witness and honor fallen service members making their final journey home. Without any fresh ideas for the nation, the Republican Party falls back onto it's tried and true formula: attack, obstruct and demonize....even when it's a bald faced lie.

From The Raw Story:

Dissecting President Barack Obama's recent visit to Dover, where he saluted America's war dead on camera, right-wing radio personality Rush Limbaugh echoed the words of Elizabeth Cheney, falsely implying that President George W. Bush had done the same, but without the cameras.

"I don't know why he went to Dover," Cheney said during a Fox News radio interview on Thursday. "I think that it is clearly important for a commander in chief, whenever he can in whatever way possible, to pay tribute to our fallen soldiers, our fallen military folks. But I think, you know, what President Bush used to do is to do it without the cameras. And, um, I don't understand, sort-of showing up with the White House press pool, with photographers, and asking family members if you can take pictures. That's really hard for me to get my head around."

"Mr. Obama's predecessor, President George W. Bush, visited the families of hundreds of fallen soldiers but did not attend any military funerals or go to Dover to receive the coffins," CBS News reported on Friday.
