Rush Limbaugh pointed out the hypocrisy of President Barack Obama being widely revered as a “peaceful” president, despite being the U.S. president who has been at war the longest.
The conservative talk-show host recalled Thursday that Obama won the Nobel Peace prize merely two months after he began his presidency in 2009.
“Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, what, in March of his first term? He’d been immaculate for two months, they give him the Nobel Peace Prize,” Limbaugh said. “They gave it to him on the come. They thought, ‘Oh, my God, this is great. We got a guy here, we got the Prince of Peace right here in the White House in the United States of America.’ Well, there’s some stats.”
Limbaugh then revealed the cold hard facts for Obama supporters.
“Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Hussein Obama will leave office as the first — are you ready for this? — the first two-term president in all of American history to have been at war every day of his presidency,” Limbaugh quipped. “It just doesn’t get any better than this stuff that’s happening.”
Obama came into office with the promise of ending the wars of predecessor, George W. Bush, but as the New York Times reports, he has now been at war longer than Bush or any other American president.
Limbaugh called attention to the irony of Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize before he had tangible foreign diplomacy accomplishments.
“Here’s the Peace Prize winner, the Nobel Prince of Peace candidate gets it only two months in on the come. They thought Obama was gonna unite the world and bring peace everywhere and love and all this stuff, community organizing around the world,” he said. “He was gonna bring newfound peace, great relations, and, instead, he ends up the first two-term president in history to have been at war — wait a minute, it gets even better — to have been at war every day.”
According to an analysis of Defense Department Data from the Council on Foreign Relations, a non-partisan think tank, Obama will depart the White House having dropped 26,171 bombs on foreign countries around the world last year, or 3,027 more than 2015,
A majority of the bombs were dropped in Iraq (12,192) and Syria (12,095).
Obama added another prestigious award to go with his Nobel Prize last week, when Defense Secretary Ash Carter awarded the president with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.
Former U.S. Representative Ron Paul pointed to Obama’s track record to delineate why Obama was undeserving of the awards.
“Barack Obama started with a Nobel Peace Prize and is ending his presidency with the Pentagon’s Distinguished Public Service Medal,” Paul wrote. “Sounds about right for a president who bombed seven nations and became the first in U.S. history to be at war every single day of his eight-year administration.”
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tweeted out her criticism of Obama receiving the award.
“This is what happens when you grow up thinking every kid gets a trophy,” Palin wrote.
