While Joe Klein from Time Magazine blames libertarians for not passing the monstrous bailout, Rush Limbaugh has been libertarianiesque this entire week. “Get government out of our homes,” he said. Even the Constitution has been quoted positively:
I take you back to the preamble of the United States Constitution where it says protect the general welfare, not ensure it. Folks, there’s a word for this. It’s called socialism. When the federal government’s going to ensure all these things for you and make sure that there’s no risk, make sure that you’re never going to lose any value here, which they can’t do.
Even Rush deserves credit once in a while.
