Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh says that if former President George W. Bush’s Iraq invasion was called “Shock and Awe” then President Barack Obama’s attack of Syrian should be called “Shuck and Jive.”

“Have you ever heard Obama talk about regime change as an objective? You have not,” Limbaugh opined on his Monday radio show. “This operation, Bush had ‘Shock and Awe,’ we’re looking at ‘Shuck and Jive’ here.”

“That’s what I’m going to name this. The Obama operation in Syria. Operation Shuck and Jive. Because that’s what this is,” he continued. “No, we don’t do shock and awe. That’s too big, that’s too dangerous, that’s too mean.”
