Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that he "thank[s] God every day" for the political difficulties facing President Barack Obama.
Limbaugh told Fox News in an interview to air on "Fox and Friends" tomorrow that the difficulties facing the president's agenda are in the best interests of the country.
"The fact that his agenda has totally failed this year is the best thing that could have happened to this country," Limbaugh told Fox. "I thank God every day that it is going down the tubes, that this Massachusetts election happened -- not that God had anything to do with that, that is the person that I thank.”
The talk radio host said that he gave up on the president's State of the Union address 50 minutes into the roughly 79-minute speech last week, because, Limbaugh said, he had "heard it all before, there was nothing new in it, the only difference was the tone."
The conservative talker is fresh off a health scare during a vacation in Hawaii late last year. While doctors initially had feared heart problem, Limbaugh said he is "100 percent healthy," and received the cleanest bill of health he'd had in a while.
Limbaugh also drew some snickers for his dance moves this past weekend while serving as a judge at the Miss America pageant.
He told Fox's Gretchen Carlson, a former pageant winner, that he is "a huge supporter of women," and was impressed by the political knowledge of many of this year's contestants.
Limbaugh also suggested he could be "Mister America," if there ever were such a contest.
“[T]his is Miss America and if there is a Mr. America out there, it is me -- so this is a perfect fit!" he said.
