    Poor Rush Limbaugh. It’s all Obama’s fault, of course.

    I guess Rush forgets about the Dixie Chicks saga and where he stood on that. Maybe all that hillbilly heroin has damaged his memory.

    Rush has a very selective memory. I heard him today railing about GHWB asking students at the U of Texas to be respectful when Obama visits. Rush was flabbergasted and wondered aloud if ANYONE would have considered even trying to keep protesters away from GWB.

    It’s like he’d never heard of “Free Speech Zones.”

    From Wikipedia:

    Free speech zones were commonly used by President George W Bush after the September 11, 2001 attacks and through the 2004 election. Free speech zones were set up by the Secret Service, who scouted locations where the U.S. president was scheduled to speak, or pass through. Officials targeted those who carried anti-Bush signs and escorted them to the free speech zones prior to and during the event. Reporters were often barred by local officials from displaying these protesters on camera or speaking to them within the zone.[3][4] Protesters who refused to go to the free speech zone were often arrested and charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and/or resisting arrest.[16][17] A seldom-used federal law making it unlawful to “willfully and knowingly to enter or remain in … any posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service is or will be temporarily visiting” has also been invoked.[18][19]

    Reagan used them way back in the 80s too. When he visited Purdue in 88 the protesters were placed well out of the way, where he would never see them. I know this because a frat brother was the student liaison for the Secret Service. He took the incoming requests for a “license” to protest the visit.

    But this is America! Being a filthy rich miscreant bastard is his personal religion, so it violates his rights if we prevent his free exercise of it in any way.

    Maybe he’s planning to resell it, to Rush, for a quick profit!
