Limabugh: Would We Go Back To Our 1848 Borders?


rush-limbaughOn Thursday, President Barack Obama delivered a speech at the State Department in Washington, D.C. laying out what direction his administration would be pursuing its Middle Eastern policy objectives. One of the highlights coming out of the speech was Obama’s proposal to restore Israel’s borders to those of 1967 with some swaps.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has since offered his thoughts on the speech, declaring that Obama has all but sided with those against Israel.

“The Arab Spring is an uprising of Middle Eastern nations against Israel and they aided and abetted by President Barack Obama of the United States of America,” Limbaugh declared. “That’s what’s going on and that’s what this speech was all about.”

However, more specifically, Limbaugh explained why Obama’s proposal was wrong by offering an analogy to his proposal that Israel and Palestine reinstate the 1967 border agreement.

“What country in its right mind make a deal with such an enemy?” Limbaugh said. “Would we go back to our 1848 borders? Would we give the French areas of the Louisiana Purchase? Would we do this? What kind of president urges a country to destroy itself and submit its people to potential genocide? And that’s what Obama has just done.”

Limbaugh added that there had been some talk Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had considered using what Obama had proposed as a bargaining chip, but that might not be possible anymore.

“Well, if that’s true, he’s lost it because Obama’s just gave it away,” Limbaugh said. “Obama just used it himself – if that was to be a bargaining chip.”

  1. why would you print an article from Thursday with Rush Limbaugh lying about what Obama said on Thursday Friday and Saturday ?

  2. Why does Rush only ask would we go back to the 1848 Borders, why didn’t he ask would we go back to our 1776 Borders?

  3. Maybe we should go back to 1948 borders. Hawaii would not be a state and Obama would not be able to be president.
