Rush Limbaugh Admits Carson Isn't Qualified To Be President, But He'd Vote For Him Anyway

So nice to see Mr. OxyContin is sticking to his "principles" on who is qualified to be President of the United States, which is Hillary hate above all else.

So nice to see Mr. OxyContin is sticking to his "principles" on who is qualified to be President of the United States, which is Hillary hate above all else. Here he is on this weekend's Fox News Sunday admitting that old Stabby Ben isn't equipped to hold the office, but he'd vote for him anyway if he wins the nomination.

WALLACE: Let's do a lightning round. Get your quick reactions to some of the people running-- I know you like this.

LIMBAUGH: Oh, lightning round! Yes, sir!

WALLACE: Running for president for 2016. First of all, Donald Trump.

LIMBAUGH: Uh, Donald Trump is I think doing a great service. He is showing that you do not have to fear attacks from the media. Republicans do not have to fear attacks from the media. He's showing you do not have to fear being political correct or violating political correctness.

WALLACE: Ben Carson.

LIMBAUGH: One of the most decent human beings in this country. One of the finest men. I've met him. The things he has done, places he's come from, he's just one of the most decent human beings--

WALLACE: Equipped to be president?

LIMBAUGH: And I cringe when I see that they're trying to destroy him. OK, next name.

WALLACE: Equipped to be president?

LIMBAUGH: Ben Carson equipped to be president? Um -- probably not at this stage, but any of these Republicans running would be better than Hillary or better than anything we've got now, so on that, based on that comparison, yes. I would vote for him if it was up to him and Hillary, absolutely, without a doubt.

WALLACE: Ted Cruz.

LIMBAUGH: Brilliant, and conservative through and through. Trustworthy, strong, confident, leader, and somebody in whom you can totally depend.

WALLACE: Jeb Bush?

LIMBAUGH: Jeb Bush, I don't think he really wants to do this. I'm watching, and I don't see passion, I don't see fire. It's as though people in his camp want him to do it because they want to get back in power. I just don't see Jeb with all that energy that says I need this, the country needs me, I can't wait to do this. I just don't see any of that.

WALLACE: Finally, Hillary Clinton.

LIMBAUGH: I just think corruption. When I think of the Clintons, I think corruption, and skirting the edges, don't trust them, and certainly don't think the country would be in the best hands possible if either of them got back in power.
