A "Fox News alert" broke the shocking news Friday that Rush Limbaugh was criticizing President Barack Obama's handling of the economy.

"The President of the United States is winning his war against the private sector," the network quoted Limbaugh as saying. "He is destroying it. That is his mission."

"I'm glad the godfather has been reading my program notes," conservative radio host Neal Boortz told Fox News host Alisyn Camerota. "I've been saying that for quite a while. It is Barack Obama's intention."

"If people vote for Barack Obama next year, it's like strapping on an economic suicide vest and giving the detonator to your ex-wife," he declared.

"Neal, wow," Camerota said chuckling. "I'm glad you're not mincing any words this morning."

Boortz added that there was no way Obama would be re-elected unless Republicans did something "stupid" like nominating Sarah Palin.
