President Barack Obama received bipartisan praise for his handling of the operation to kill Osama bin Laden – but was there one high-profile exception?

Rush Limbaugh opened his radio show Monday with effusive – and highly uncharacteristic – praise, ending with, “Thank God for President Obama.”

But later in the show, Limbaugh broke into laughter while reading aloud a publication that appeared to take his earlier comments literally.
