Rush Rails Against Gingrich‘s ’Inexplicable‘ and ’Mind-Boggling’ Obamacare Comments

"Folks, don’t ask me to explain this. There is no explanation!"

Don't ask Rush Limbaugh to support Newt Gingrich's comments over the last 24 hours. He won't.

On radio today, Limbaugh characterized Gingrich's support for a variation of Obama's individual insurance mandate yesterday as "inexplicable" and "mind-boggling." The top conservative radio host refused to defend Gingrich's comments, and even was visibly annoyed while describing Gingrich's position. Here's part of what he said (via Mediaite):

“I am not going to justify this. I am not going to explain it. The attack on Paul Ryan, the support for an individual mandate in health care? Folks, don’t ask me to explain this. There is no explanation! What do you mean, if I don’t explain it, who will? There is no explanation for it. First off, it cuts Paul Ryan off at the knees. It supports the Obama administration in the lawsuits that 26 states have filed over the mandate. I guess, what? Back in 1993, Newt supported an individual mandate, everybody should buy insurance. I am as befuddled as anyone else is what I’m telling you.”

It should be noted that Gingrich has since come out and said he doesn't support the Obamacare mandate "period."
