From a February 2 Politico article, headlined, "Rush: 'Thank God' for Obama woes":
Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says he thanks God "every day" that he sees problems for President Barack Obama.
In an interviewing [sic] airing Wednesday on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," Limbaugh said the country has lucked out each time one of Obama's initiatives has failed.
"The fact that his agenda has totally failed this year is the best thing that could have happened to this country," Limbaugh said. "I thank God every day that it is going down the tubes."
Limbaugh added that he was thankful that "this Massachusetts election happened," referencing Republican Scott Brown's win in the Senate special election there last month.
Limbaugh said that he watched Obama deliver his State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress last week, but "gave up after 50 minutes."
"I heard it all before. There was nothing new in it. The only difference was the tone," Limbaugh said, belittling Obama "a young inexperienced guy, who is just mad."
"This is the first time in his life there is not a professor who can turn his C into an A, or to write the law review article for him he can't write. He is totally exposed. There is nobody to make it better," Limbaugh said.
