The nation’s most “fair and balanced” network gave up over 20 minutes of its premiere Sunday “news” show to nation’s loudest conservative voice. With little resistance, Fox News’ Chris Wallace allowed Rush Limbaugh to continually attack President Barack Obama. Limbaugh called Obama “the man-child president,” accused him of visiting the families of fallen troops for a photo op and said the president doesn’t care about the war in Afghanistan.

“You suggest that he is taking all of this time to decide what to do in Afghanistan to keep his left wing base on board for health care reform,” suggested Wallace.

“Well, it’s partly that, but I also don’t think he cares much about it,” replied Limbaugh. “See, this is — I know this is going to sound controversial, but i don’t think he cares.”

Limbaugh went on to call health care reform an “attack on liberty” and an “attack on freedom.”

“We’ve never seen this kind of radical leader at such a high level of power in this county,” said Limbaugh.
