Rush Limbaugh advanced a surprising hypothesis on his radio show today regarding the motivation behind the current teachers' union protests plaguing the Chicago area. Specifically, Limbaugh argued, the union protests were being allowed to go on as long as they have so that they could become a manufactured crisis, allowing President Barack Obama to sweep in and look like the hero by negotiating an end to the standoff.
"Why are the teachers in Chicago going on strike?" Limbaugh asked rhetorically. "So Obama can solve it as a campaign issue."
