Rush In a Hurry - September 28, 2007

1) The Clinton-Soros Group Media Matters for America takes Rush out of context and reports that he called soldiers who oppose the war in Iraq "phony soldiers."
2) The Drive-By Media runs with the lie.
3) A reporter challenges President Bush's spokeswoman to repudiate the quote (that Rush never said.)
4) Democrat senators and House members trip over themselves to condemn Rush, demanding he apologize (for what he never said) and challenging Republicans to condemn him.
If reporters had bothered to check the transcripts and audio at RushLimbaugh.com, or even to call the EIB Network for comment, they wouldn't look like such fools.
Rush was talking about phony soldier Jesse MacBeth.
MacBeth portrayed himself as a decorated Iraq war veteran who opposed the war. Since "Corporal" MacBeth fit the left's anti-war template, the Drive-By Media lapped up his lies.
The truth? Mr. MacBeth was just sentenced to five months in jail for being...a phony soldier.

MacBeth never served in Iraq, never won a Purple Heart, never reached the rank of corporal, was never an Army Ranger -- and therefore never could have witnessed war crimes against Iraqi civilians as he claimed. In fact, MacBeth washed out of Army boot camp after 44 days. (Rush 24/7 Members: Listen Here).

Rush reminds us of how Democrats smeared General Petraeus, and how John Kerry, Jack Murtha and Dick Durbin attacked our rank-and-file soldiers based on lies.
The full transcript of these comments is posted at RushLimbaugh.com.
The Dittocam video of Rush's opening monologue is up on YouTube. Will the media bother to look at either?

The left had to go to a phony soldier to give them bad news out of Iraq. They need bad news because they're invested in defeat, and cannot accept the fact that the surge has brought Sunnis over to our side and away from Al-Qaeda. Frederick Kagan's piece in then Wall Street Journal, "Why We're Winning Now in Iraq," details the anti-war left's worst nightmare. The tide has turned, so much so that every major Democrat presidential candidate has committed to staying in Iraq through 2013. (Rush 24/7 Members: Listen Here).
