Rush Limbaugh spoke on Monday about how news media will be trying to make President Barack Obama and Hurricane Sandy “look good.”
Politico notes that Limbaugh spoke on his radio program Monday, saying:
“[When] they have time they’re gonna try to massage it and figure out a way they can make it look good for Obama. Which is juvenile, infantile, sad and disappointing because this storm is going to affect everybody.”
He added that media will soak up any news about Mitt Romney. Limbaugh believes that the media will help spin Hurricane Sandy for Obama, because coverage of the storm has impeded their efforts of talking about the president in other ways.
The conservative talk show hosts adds that, like in golf with the “golf gods,” the “weather gods” are interceding in the campaign so that the news media will talk about how bad the storm is, instead of how bad Romney is. Therefore, Limbaugh stated, according to the transcript on his website:
“And then when they have time they’re gonna try to massage it and figure out a way they can make it look good for Obama. Which is juvenile, infantile, sad, and disappointing because this storm is going to affect everybody.”
Interestingly enough, Republican Governor Chris Christie praised Obama for his response on public television on Tuesday. Limbaugh stated of Christie on Monday:
“Heed the warning. Except what Governor Christie says. He’s fat and a fool. Don’t listen to Governor Christie. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He makes fun of me all the time.”
Do you think Rush Limbaugh is right to say Hurricane Sandy is being twisted to praise Obama and help his campaign.
