If I emailed you every time Rush Limbaugh said something nutty, I wouldn't be allowed on the internet anymore.

But Mitt Romney says he finds it "hard to disagree with Rush Limbaugh," so here's the latest direct quote from Rush:

"I think it can now be said, without equivocation -- without equivocation -- that this man hates this country. He is trying -- Barack Obama is trying -- to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream."

Rush isn't some loose cannon -- he's apparently right in line with the Romney campaign's talking points.

This morning, top Romney surrogate and former Republican Governor of New Hampshire John Sununu called the White House "dumb," and, on an official Romney campaign conference call with reporters, even said: "I wish this president would learn how to be an American."

The only way to stop the disturbing hate campaign from the Romney team is to show them that decisions like this have a cost.

If I emailed you every time Rush Limbaugh said something nutty, I wouldn't be allowed on the internet anymore.

But you need to hear what he said about President Obama on his show yesterday -- it says a lot about the people we're up against in this election.

Direct quote from Mr. Limbaugh: "I think it can now be said, without equivocation -- without equivocation -- that this man hates this country. He is trying -- Barack Obama is trying -- to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream."

News flash: Barack Obama -- son of a single mother and the first African-American president in U.S. history -- embodies the American dream as much as anyone. And in case Rush forgot, here's what President Obama has said about it: "As long as I live, I will never forget that in no other country on Earth is my story even possible."

Rush Limbaugh is someone no one should have to take seriously. But when upwards of 20 million people listen to his show every week, and Mitt Romney says he finds it "hard to disagree with Rush Limbaugh on topics," we can't let it go unaddressed.
