"Long after we're all dead and gone, when historians who are not yet born begin to write about this era, they're going to place George Bush in the upper echelon of presidents who had a great vision for America, who looked beyond our shores, who didn't just restrict himself to domestic policy niceties." (underlined for shock value--ed.)
Not sure what Rush means by "domestic niceties," but maybe it's Bush's push to restrict the rights of gay Americans, or his inclination to infringe on the privacy rights of all Americans through warrantless phone taps, or his denial of the separation of powers through signing statements in which he declares himself above the law?
I can't imagine how anyone takes Rush Limbaugh seriously anymore, but I know there are millions—MILLIONS!!!—who do.
