Rush Limbaugh said on his Monday show that President Obama was "hoping" that Hurricane Irene would be a "disaster."

Limbaugh firmly came down on the side of those who think that the media oversold the destructive power of 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."

I don't recall when he blamed earthquakes and tsunamis. We haven't had any tsunamis (yet), and we had a minor earthquake..don't recall when Obama tied that one at all to the economy. Unless he means Japan-did Obama actually tie any of our economic woes to the earthquake and tsunami in Japan?

Oh, bitch please. Like there weren't conservative talking heads hoping it would be a disaster so they could all compare it to Katrina and crow about how Obama had failed the east coast and that he doesn't care about black people east coasters.

(No, of course no one said that out loud. But I'm sure there were some horrid people thinking it. Like me! )

The Hill, Aug. 31
Quote:
President Obama has requested a joint session of Congress next week to deliver his jobs speech directly to lawmakers. In a letter to congressional leaders requesting the Sept. 7 slot, the president said he will urge Congress to put aside politics and focus on creating jobs during the 8 p.m. speech.

...The speech will fall on the same night Texas Gov. Rick Perry makes his debut on the GOP 2012 debate stage. The Republican presidential field is set to take part in a debate, also scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif.

Asked whether the speech was purposefully scheduled the same night as the Republican debate, White House press secretary Jay Carney said "of course not." "It is coincidental," said Carney, who explained that a number of considerations were taken into account when Obama settled on Sept. 7. "One debate of many that's on one channel of many was not enough of a reason" to pick another date, Carney said.

I dunno, it's kind of fun when Obama decides to be a dick about something.

I need you to send a message to your members of Congress, to your representatives that we’re tired of the games. We’re tired of the posturing.

Not sure being a dick is the wisest way to encourage bipartisanship to "put country first."

Take a look in your party's backyard before you bitch about Obama scheduling a goddamn speech.

There is no bipartisanship with this Republican congress, period.
  1. They know Obama will cave
  2. They have proved Obama will cave
  3. They will make him cave again

Who's bitchin'? I think this fell into the GOP's lap. Let Obama kick off the 2012 race with his campaign speech-- and let the debate serve as the GOP response.

I wouldn't move it, I'd promote it.

Although it's an interesting idea, I doubt campaign strategists for several of the GOP candidates who tend to put foot in mouth would want their candidates responding to the Prez during a debate with very little to no prep time.

Imagine asking three or four Joe Bidens to craft a response to a major presidential speech from the other party with no lead time.
