Rush: Now, I got a post here at Legal Insurrection. And the poster, the writer is somebody that calls themselves Neocon, but it’s actually just a post pointing to something in the Washington Post, and they point to the headline, and they say, “Look what’s gonna happen here. They’re gonna make Obama a victim. That’s how they’re gonna explain this,” and the Washington Post headline: “Obama Suffers Most From Year of Turmoil, Poll Finds.”
