Rush Limbaugh Seems to Think Obama Is Responsible For Isaac Heading Toward Tampa

Thumbnail image for rush-limbaugh.jpg 318×397 pixels.jpg
Rush Limbaugh sure knows a lot about hot air, so, you know, he's pretty much an expert on hurricanes. He seems to think that President Barack Obama is personally responsible for guiding Tropical Storm Isaac to Tampa, or something. Nothing he says really makes much sense.

"So we got a hurricane coming," Limbaugh said on his radio show, according to Media Matters. "The National Hurricane Center, which is a government agency, is very hopeful that the hurricane gets near Tampa. The National Hurricane Center is Obama. It's the National Weather Service, part of the commerce department. It's Obama."

Right, because if you go to the National Hurricane Center's website the front page is a giant picture of Barack Obama smiling with the words "We gonna fuck some Republicans up, y'all!!!!!!!!!"

Oh wait, it's just a map of TS Isaac, which, as of right now, looks like its heading far into the Gulf of Mexico west of Tampa.

"Well, you know, we who live in South Florida become experts," he continues. "We don't need the National Hurricane Center, and we don't need all these weather dolts analyzing this for us. Well, we need the center, we can look at their charts and graphs, we know what to do, we can read the stuff. I've been tracking the charted forecast track of the storm, and they're moving it sometimes to the east."

Yes, Limbaugh, we don't need all these "weather dolts" to analyze things for us, except when we need for them to present their analysis of things in the form of charts and graphs.

"Nobody knows, but they're desperately hoping, they're so desperately hoping for Tampa," he continued. "The media, you know, I can see Obama sending FEMA in in advance of the hurricane hitting Tampa so that the Republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in Tampa, a bunch of RVs and stuff. Make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there."

I don't even know what any of these means anymore. Listen for yourself though:

So it's not global warming...it's that damn Kenyan born, socialistic, beer brewing, health care giving, business destroying president. Where does he find the time? Ya gotta love a country that allows this garbage under the title Freedom of Speech and a big mouth like this makes a living, a very big living, making these kinds of statements. Does that count as government aid?

Hypocrisy has become the only constant of today's GOP 'We Built This!”

The Tampa Bay Times Forum arena, which houses the Tampa Bay Lightning, was built in 1996 as the “Ice Palace” with 62% government funds. The total budget for the project was $139 million, of which public money accounted for $86 million and team money accounted for $53 million.

 

The city of Tampa is receiving a $50 million federal grant to pay for security around the 2012 Republican National Convention. So far, officials have detailed plans for $46,520,490 worth of security expenditures. From a 16,000-pound armored SWAT truck to segways, cotton uniforms and pay for 3,500 law enforcement officers, we offer a visual breakdown of how the Tampa RNC security spending is be spend dennis

 

Sollmann, the owner of Sollmann Electric Company, who appeared in a Romney web ad criticizing the president for his "you didn't build that" line, did millions of dollars worth of work for the government

 

Sher Valenzuela Story with the convention's "We Built It" theme: She didn't actually build her company without the government's help.Valenzuela's company received roughly $17 million in federal loans and contracts and she's openly encouraged other business owners to rely on taxpayer funding, Media Matters reported Thursday.

 

Jack Gilchrist, the owner of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating, who starred in another Romney ad, received $800,000 in tax-exempt revenue bonds, as well as sub-contracts in 2008 from the U.S. Navy.  

 

NO taxpayer should be paying for this - period

Can't have it both ways. Either Obama is all powerful or he's useless.

Did he just tell his listeners that Obama is God? I never thought he'd come to that conclusion, but then this has been a weird year.

If you're going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk with what may be the Etch A Sketch candidate of the future.

 

 

Remember all the conservatives, fundamentalists, and preachers saying hurricane Katrina was God's way of punishing New Orleans for it's sin? Well apparently God hates the GOP and especially the heathen Mitt Romney. Using the GOP's own logic, rejection of science, and blind faith in the creator what other conclusion can one draw from this storm?

New times is stupid for actually taking Rush Limbaugh literally. Stop with the stupid anti conservative articles and stick to what you know. Reporting about best eats or best gay clubs to hit up this weekend.
