Rush Limbaugh is hopping mad at two of the Supreme Court's recent rulings and he doesn't care who knows it.
But the man who's drawing the most heat from the talk radio pundit is an unlikely pick: Mitt Romney.
According to the Huffington Post, Limbaugh bashed Romney on his show on Tuesday over what he considered the candidate's vague and inadequate response to the Supreme Court's recent immigration ruling.
Last week the Court determined that certain parts of Arizona's controversial immigration policy are unconstitutional. In response to their finding, Romney found himself criticized for what critics called his slow and incoherent response to the decision, offering only that he 'would have preferred to see the Supreme Court give more latitude to the states.'
Romney's reaction drew heavy fire from the man who many consider the true leader of the GOP, who called it 'tepid' and a 'red flag' for the campaign. Limbaugh concluded that 'Mitt Romney blew it' with his response.
'The Romney campaign was not ready for primetime on this illegal immigration Arizona decision,' Limbaugh scoffed, adding that it was the first time he thought that in a while. He added that, apart from this gaffe, he thought the Romney campaign has been doing a 'superb job' responding quickly to developments as they occur.
Immigration is simply too important an issue for Romney to hold back on, Limbaugh added.
Meanwhile, responding to the Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act, Limbaugh claimed that 'Obamacare is nothing more than the largest tax increase in the history of the world.'
But critics have responded that being a fine-like tax, or penalty, does not equal the 'largest tax increase in the history of the world.' The only ones to pay 'tax' will be the freeloaders who can afford health care and choose not to purchase it, critics contend.
