Not one Republican to disavow the disgraceful Limbaugh “photo-op” insult of President Obama.

“Fox News Sunday” gave over the first halfhour today to the Head of the Republicans, Rush Limbaugh, who came up among other things with a disgraceful insult of President Obama, accusing him of the “photo-op” exploitation of the casket of a U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan.
[]
Not one Republican –unless you count Joe Lieberman– has come forward to disavow Limbaugh’s insult. This demonstrates how radicalized the whole party has become, how much in fear and trembling of Limbaugh it is, and how far from its proper “loyal opposition” role that the rightwing has moved.

Limbaugh rationalized his “photo-op” insult: “It was a photo-op precisely because he’s having big-time trouble on this whole Afghanistan dithering situation,” Limbaugh told “Fox News Sunday”.
His echoing of Dick Cheney’s use of “dithering” show how much “lockstep” the Rep. talking points are.

This Republican irresponsibility is unconscionable: is there no reasonable responsible, “loyal-opposition” section of the party? [Republicans! You lost the election! This is now your proper role!]

Readers of this blog will recall my recent post in which I relayed the words of my friend, the US Captain leaving Afghanistan in early 2008 after serving for 3 years there. In a direct statement, he said that he saw defeat for the U.S. if it did not change its strategy!

Mr. Cheney, the dithering was yours! And Mr. Bush’s! Seven years of dithering! Including a Whole Dithering War in Iraq, with all that death and injury and waste of our nation’s resources!

Did anybody else see or hear this Fox interview of Limbaugh? Is he really as pathetically un-self-aware as he sounded to me when he talked about what his drug-abuse/addiction to oxy-contin “had taught him” about his self-confidence or lack thereof ?
Does he seriously put himself forward as a well-adjusted individual that he claims he now is?

Take a look at Our Pompous Bloviator with his $400 million contract and his close pal Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and his in-your-face cigar-smoke-ring –the default de facto face of The Republican Party!

Does he not realize that were it not for his protracted attack on him in 2008, Candidate John McCain might now be President John McCain!
