Rush Limbaugh Says Obama Wanted Another Katrina

Rush Limbaugh Says Obama Wanted Another Katrina

 

Rush Limbaugh, weather meteorologist and psychic friend, came out yesterday to criticize President Obama and “the media” for over-hyping Hurricane Irene.

ďThe hysterical reporting on Irene? They couldn’t wait for this storm. Obama — Iíll guarantee you this. Iíll guarantee you that Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster and another excuse for his failing economy. If heís out there blaming tsunamis, blaming earthquakes, and whatever other natural disasters there are. This one was made to order but it just didnít measure up,Ē said Limbaugh.

While the storm wasn’t the Zombie Hurricane it promised to be on our eastern shores, it was still devastating to our Caribbean neighbors, which means it was a force to be reckoned with. Obama, Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Christie all came out to tell people to take this seriously, they’re not going to save your hurricane kayaking idiot self, and to get the hell off the beach, respectively.

So why is Limbaugh calling this a politicized attempt to push the “leftist agenda”? He claims Obama wanted this to be a disaster — that he wanted hundreds of people to die, like in Hurricane Katrina. Because that worked so well for former President Bush?

Apparently, Obama was crossing fingers for a one-two punch of natural disasters so we’d all run screaming into the streets and dive into deeper poverty (this time blaming Mother Earth and not Obama.)

I guess Mother Earth has a political agenda. But what side is she really on?

Well, Michele Bachmann half-joked, “I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending,”

Bottom line, we survived a hurricane. Meteorologists have to take the worst case scenario into account. Thankfully, the eastern seaboard was prepared for this category of hurricane.

Sorry, Limbaugh, that only 36 people have died as of yesterday and only a handful of homes destroyed. You can call and ask for a bigger one next time.

Why is the news media still giving him attention???

It's hard to believe Limbaugh is still on the air, what with so many of his advertisers responding to their customers' complaints.

For any persons to suggest a sitting President, or any American would wish for a trajedy to further their own political agendas is unprosacutable treason; treason none the less. A bloated and poor specimen of a human being, let alone an American, Rush deserves his following; ignorant and scared, incapable of original thought or, for that matter, reading a book with a hard cover and costing more than fifty cents.

I only hear about him when, implausible as it seems, he makes a bigger ass of himself.

This is just stupid. Why would Obama want the people of the USA to suffer again? Hurricane Katrina cost the US millions of dollars so why would Obama want another diaster on that scale? Everyone blames him for the state of the economy but they seem to forget that it was Bush that ran the country into the ground with his 8yr reign of terror, after Clinton did such a good job of pulling the US out of a recession. Obama was never going to be able to fix the economy in one term but he is a better president than Bush ever was, at the very least he can string a full sentence together...:-(

Elizabeth, I am on NO drugs and I can't keep to the subject. (:->)

Rush is on so many drugs it's amazing he was able to keep on the subject so long.

Limbaugh is such a manipulative, creepy fat guy. He always banks on his bull$h!t, and the weak-minded keep giving him an audience and keep his pockets full of bills.

I have to admit that regardless of what all you lefties have to say about Rush, it is an embarrassment that he is the most popular righty radio talk show host. Fortunately, we still have Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt (and the fetching Mrs. Hewitt), Michael Medved and others who manage to broadcast the conservative viewpoint without spite and mind-reading.

Rob, I have always said that he was spiteful and had a secret ability to read other people's minds. I am sure that if I were a liberal I could see his faults better.
