Limbaugh: Ahmadinejad “echoing Barack Obama talking points”

Summary: On Fox News, Rush Limbaugh claimed that in a U.N. speech, Iran’s President Ahmadinejad was “echoing [Sen.] Barack Obama talking points — talking about how America is responsible for all the problems of the world, talking about how American defense spending is — led to the crisis here.” Limbaugh provided no evidence that Obama has said anything remotely similar to Ahmadinejad’s remarks, which, according to a translation, included references to “Zionist murderers” and to the purported influence of “Zionists” on the “political decision-making centers of some European countries and the U.S.”
