LIMBAUGH: Is It Patently Ridiculous To Suggest That Hillary Get A Pass Because Bush Got A Pass On 9/11?

RUSH: Okay, Trumpsters, I need to know what you’re thinking here.  Donald Trump said that he had to say it, that 9/11 happened while George W. Bush was president.  He wished it didn’t, but it did.  And the implication was clear that 9/11, if you’re gonna start blaming politicians for things that happen while they’re in office, then how do you not blame George W. Bush for 9/11?  And then Democrats immediately picked that up and applauded Mr. Trump and said, “Exactly right.

“So if the Republicans are not going to acknowledge that George W. Bush was to blame and was responsible for 9/11, well, then how in the world can Hillary Clinton be blamed for what happened in Benghazi?  And to show you how effect… I think that’s so bogus. I think that’s so full of holes. I think it’s Swiss cheese.  But I ran it by a lot of people over the weekend, and they think it makes sense! Frankly, I have been shocked at how easy it has been.  It really is mind blowing.

It has been easy to talk to people who voted for and supported Bush who say, “Well, yeah, you know what? If we’re gonna blame Hillary for Benghazi, I guess to be credible we do have to say that Bush had some role in 9/11.”  I’m incredulous.  I’m literally incredulous when I hear this.  Jake
Tapper, by the way, asked Jeb Bush this very question: “If George W. Bush wasn’t responsible for 9/11, how do you blame Hillary for Benghazi?”  That was on State of the Union, the CNN Sunday show.  And Jeb’s answer, frankly, was hard to discern.

Let me take a stab at this by asking Jake Tapper and any of you who might think that this is a valid, analogous comparison, because this it’s so clear what’s going on here. This is all part of the setup here for the Thursday hearings, folks.  I mean, is it patently ridiculous to suggest that Hillary Clinton should get a pass because we gave George W. Bush a pass on 9/11?  And that’s what Jake Tapper’s basically asking Jeb.
