Rush Limbaugh Has Most Ridiculous Obama Accusation Yet

Hurricane Irene had a few moments of utter devastation and she killed enough people to make her pretty darn scary, but the fact is, in the end, she was less than anyone expected. Of course, anyone who would be disappointed that a hurricane is less than expected is clearly insane. But Rush Limbaugh says that is exactly how President Barack Obama feels about Irene.

On his "news" program today, Limbaugh accused the President of using the mainstream media to stir up fear about Irene because he wanted a huge disaster to take all of our minds off his presidential blunders.

Limbaugh has proven himself an impossibly stupid windbag time and again, but really, this takes the cake. He said:



I'll guarantee you Obama was hoping this was going to be a disaster as another excuse for his failing economy. If he's out there blaming tsunamis, if he's blaming earthquakes, this one [was] made to order, but it just didn't measure up.

Calling it "hysterical reporting," Limbaugh went on and on about the "leftist agenda" and somehow spun it into it being Obama's fault. Truth be told, his logic was so idiotic, it's hard to follow, but one thing is clear: Obama wanted us all to die.

Not once did it occur to him that maybe Obama was so on top of things because he was afraid of looking like George W. -- "Brownie you're doing a heck of a job!" -- Bush.

Call me insane, but I am grateful and happy that this storm passed over my home leaving my children, husband, and valuables relatively unscathed. I am not losing a lot of sleep over "hysterical reporting" because you know what? I want to know the worst case scenario and I want to be prepared.

Do I regret my $100 worth of flashlights, canned goods, and non-perishables? Not really. Because I was in a good position in case something had happened and I am grateful today that it didn't.

Not only that, Limbaugh is just plain wrong. The Japanese earthquake and tsunami actually hurt Obama in the polls. And natural disasters haven't exactly helped other presidents in the past, unless you think being mentioned by Kanye West is a good thing.

In fact, Limbaugh is just doing his usual bit of lying, exaggerating, and fear-mongering. But you know what is cool? This time nobody is buying his crap.

Do you think Obama wanted this?
