Rush: Obama 'Reveling' in Idea of U.S. as 'Deflated, Declining Superpower'

President Obama is "reveling" in the idea of the U.S. declining as a world superpower, Rush Limbaugh said on his show today.

While discussing Russian President Putin's refusal to extradite NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden to the United States, Limbaugh said:

"It may look like it's embarrassing Obama, but this is exactly what Obama wants.  Obama is reveling in the idea here of a deflated, declining superpower status."

"Obama's not taking this personally - that Putin, whatever he's doing, won't extradite Snowden...all it means to Obama is that the United States isn't as feared, nor is it as respected," Limbaugh said.

"I'm telling you, this is right up Obama's alley -  to preside over the decline of the superpower once known as the United States."
