Rush Limbaugh’s speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington DC was broadcast live Saturday, February 28, 2009, on FOX News and CSPAN. Those who praise President Barack Obama for his oratorical skill should have been dazzled to watch the true master at work. Speaking without a teleprompter (with half his brain tied behind his back just to be fair), Mr. Limbaugh gave his audience a full demonstration of the power of truth.
Scheduled to last 20 minutes, Mr. Limbaugh’s speech ran close to one and a half hours. Every minute was riveting. The attendees jumped to their feet in applause almost as maniacally as Speaker Nancy Pelosi did during the President’s first “State of the Union Show” on February 24.
After Mr. Limbaugh’s speech, CPAC honored him with the “Defender of the Constitution” award. Brad O’Leary presented Mr. Limbaugh with a framed document signed by Ben Franklin.
