Sometimes truth hurts as when Rush Limbaugh declared yesterday:

“I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country,” the conservative radio host said. “He is trying, Barack Obama is trying, to dismantle, brick-by-brick, the American dream. There’s no other way to put this. There’s no other way to explain this.”

Rush made these comments coming off an Obama speech Friday in Roanoke in which he said:

“Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something: There are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.” 
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” Obama continued. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”

The remarks quite naturally created a stir all over the internet and Rush just fanned the flames.  Via Professor Jacobson:

The good professor writes that both Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama "are hypocrites cut from the same cloth."
