Rush Cites TVNewser Interview with Terry Moran; Moran Responds

By SteveK Comment

Rush Limbaugh kicked off his Friday show calling out ABC’s Terry Moran after Moran’s interview on the Morning Media Menu podcast.

There’s a blog out there called, TVNewser and so forth, and the TV people read it religiously. I mean not too many other members of the public do, but it’s big in the TV business. They have a show on there; it’s a web radio show. Terry Moran of ABC’s Nightline was the guest. This is what he said about President Obama.

“Yes, you heard right, a step down for Lord Barack Obama, the Most Merciful,” said Limbaugh. “He was leading this giant movement, a la George Washington. Now he’s had to take a step down. What did I tell you people? He’s too big to fail.”

Moran sent us two Tweets responding to Limbaugh:

“Rush didn’t get the joke. Or the point. As usual,” he wrote in one. In the second: “I said like only Washington, Obama came to office as more than a politician, a visionary leader for many. Now he’s got a job.”

The full quote from Moran concluded that Obama, as president, is “getting more regular scrutiny, as is necessary.”
