It’s been a while since Rush Limbaugh has said something stupid enough to get some real coverage, he remedied that fact on Monday when he told his listeners that President Obama was “hoping” for a widespread “disaster” so he could justify the economic woes.
According to Limbaugh:
“I’ll guarantee you Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster as another excuse for his failing economy,” while adding, “If he’s out there blaming tsunamis, blaming earthquakes, this one [was] made to order, but it just didn’t measure up.”
Like most of Limbaugh’s idiotic comments it comes with absolutely no proof, in fact the last major disasters in the United States weighed negatively on our nation’s Presidents, including the BP oil spill for Obama, Hurricane Katrine for G.W. and Hurricane Andrew for George Bush I.
While it’s true the recent Japanese earthquake caused major economic drain on the entire economy of Japan in a short period of time, the country wasn’t facing a U.S. sized downturn in the economy at the time of their disaster, a downturn anyone with at least two brain cells (this excludes Limbaugh) would realize couldn’t be suddenly blamed on a singular hurricane sized event.
In closing Limbaugh says the entire event was blown out of proportion as part of a “leftist event.”
What do you think about Limbaugh’s mad man rant?
