Democrats and the White House have been propping up the impeachment narrative to gin up support in the past few days (it did wonders for their fundraising), and today Rush Limbaugh went after CNN covering calls for impeachment in a way that he believed was all about trashing Republicans and propping up Democrats.
Limbaugh said as soon as he saw a headline on CNN reading, “GOP Wants to Impeach Obama,” he knew it was a big lie. Some people, like Sarah Palin, have called for President Obama‘s impeachment, but John Boehner and House conservatives have ruled it out.
Limbaugh charged CNN ran with that headline because they want to be able to blame Republicans even if they don’t do anything. He said, “They’re going to report this as something the Republicans want to happen so that they get creamed by it even if they do nothing. It’s a strategy. There is no journalism anymore, don’t forget. There’s only advocacy and support for the Democrat agenda, disguised as the news.”
