Conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh blasted members of the so-called “birther” movement as “children living in a fantasy” who want a “magic wand” that will undo Barack Obama’s election.
“If you want to focus on what should have happened before the election, we can do that [but] but going back in time and talking about a birth certificate is not the most effective way of stopping this guy [Obama],” Rush exclaimed to a caller who lambasted him for not questioning the president’s ability to hold office based on his natural born status.
Rush exclaimed that he would love to see everything Obama has done legislatively while president get erased, but he deals with “‘what is,’ not ‘what ifs’.”
“‘If’ is for children, and we have certain things that are the reality of the day and need to dealt with,” Rush said.
“There is no magic wand that can get Obama un-elected,” Rush declared.
“I would love for this guy [Obama] to be a fraud with the birth certificate, he’s a fraud with everything else,” he said. “Just to watch the Democrats and the media go [nuts], that would be fun. But until such things happen, if, when, whatever, there is a reality that has to be dealt with, day in and day out.”
