Rush Limbaugh nailed it today. The popular conservative radio host called out Obama and the liberals on their latest phony, divisive distraction to keep Americans from focusing on Obama’s failed policies.
Thanks to Media Matters for posting part of this segment today.

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, what happened this week at the Supreme Court is profound regardless the outcome. It was an eye-opening experience for millions of Americans that were paying attention maybe for the first time to this kind of thing. But the reason that I harp on this is… and I’m still struggling with a way to explain this to you. The reason I think it’s profound is that the next time one of these events such as Hayward just reviewed in this horrible month for the Democrats, the next time the media and the Democrat Party get all exercised about something happening in our country or in our culture or in our media, and when they’re all in unity on it, the reaction ought to be they’re lying. They’re making it up. There’s a political agenda here. There is no real outrage, for example.
All these people supposedly calling advertisers of this program. There was no angry consumer outrage. It was all trumped up. The same thing was attempted with the Trayvon Martin case. To create a false reality, to make it look like the country is as agitated as the left is, but it never is. The country is never as roiled and as agitated as the left is. They can succeed in upsetting people. But the object lesson here is to, from this point forward, just don’t believe them. Just understand with some sophistication the effort that’s being made every time something seemingly falls in their laps that is on the surface made to order to get rid of one of their enemies or to get rid of opposition to an issue or piece of legislation or what have you.
They don’t live in reality. They have no moral fiber or moral core. They are not smarter by any stretch. They’re not as smart as you are. They have shut themselves off from learning. You and I, for example, can explain liberalism to somebody. They can’t explain conservatism. They don’t care. They’re not interested. It doesn’t matter. It’s beneath them. As such they’re not informed. It’s like Geithner was up talking to some congressional committee about reducing the deficit. He said, (paraphrasing) “Well, we don’t really have a plan. All we know is we don’t like yours.” But Geithner doesn’t know what our plan is. He doesn’t care what our plan is. The fact that it’s ours is enough for him to reject it. That is arrogance, that’s conceit, and that’s who they are.
They’re bullies. They don’t know half of what they think they know. And when they are confronted with hard, cold reality as they were before the Supreme Court this week, their media members, their lawyers, their bureaucrats, when they’re confronted with reality, they’re lost. They can’t explain themselves. They can’t justify their issues. They’re never able to do that. I’ll give you a little illustration here, a couple of examples. There’s a story here in the UK Daily Mail. This is the British media. “Sarasota Murder: Shawn Tyson, 17, Found GUILTY of Killing 2 British Tourists in Florida — A sneering teenager, nicknamed ‘Savage’, was today found guilty in the shooting deaths of two British tourists after days of damning evidence.

“Shawn Tyson, 17, was charged with two counts of first degree murder for killing James Cooper and James Kouzaris in April 2011 and was sentenced to life in prison. The Sarasota, Florida, jury of eight women and four men only deliberated for two hours before coming to the guilty sentence for Tyson.” The story is that these two Brits came over here to Disney World for vacation, and this guy tried to rob them. They didn’t have any money, so he just killed them. They’re white; he’s black. You’re not hearing about this in the US media ’cause this will not fit with what they’re trying to make you believe in the Trayvon Martin case.
Now, the important thing about the Trayvon Martin case, we don’t know yet who is it that’s jumped the gun, who is it that’s trying to make that story fit into their template. It’s them. Who is it that’s waiting to see what really happened and let just take its course? It’s us.
