Dear Commons Community,
There is absolutely no limit to the depths that the extreme right-wing spokesman, Rush Limbaugh, will go to try to criticize President Barack Obama. Yesterday, Limbaugh said that President Obama was “hoping” that Hurricane Irene would be a “disaster.”
Discussing how the media hyped Irene, he said that the storm was blown out of proportion to “push the leftist agenda,” and tied it to what he said was Obama’s desire to have a huge disaster.
“I’ll guarantee you Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster as another excuse for his failing economy,” he said. “If he’s out there blaming tsunamis, blaming earthquakes, this one [was] made to order, but it just didn’t measure up.”
What idiocy and sadly indicative of the pathetic state of talk radio in this country.
