On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh blamed the Ft. Hood shooting where 13 soldiers were killed on President Obama. Limbaugh said, “We could almost say this is Obama’s fault, because this guy said that he believed Obama was going to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Here is the audio:
Limbaugh said, “I am sure they’re not going to call this hate crime. I’m sure this man’s inner feelings are going to be probed regarding the Bush/Cheney war. You wait, but let’s not forget this man had no problem with killing people, zilch. This guy’s not a pacifist. This guy is not a coconscious objector. He didn’t like Americans in Afghanistan or Iraq, and by the way, playing the game the way the media and the Democrats do, we can almost say that this is Obama’s fault, because this guy said that he believed that Obama was going to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama hasn’t done it, and that’s one of the reasons why the guy cracked.”
According to Rush, it is Obama’s fault that a mentally unstable man shot 43 people last week. It is pretty safe to say that his upcoming deployment was not the only reason why this man decided to go on a shooting. However, Limbaugh’s Obama paranoia knows no boundaries. It is only a matter of time before Limbaugh starts blaming Obama for the weather.
Limbaugh’s act would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad that millions of people listen to this guy. The whole idea that everything bad that happens in the world is Obama’s fault is getting tedious. The Ft. Hood shooting is no more Obama’s fault, then the Virginia Tech shooting was Bush’s fault. It may be difficult for Limbaugh to understand this, but not all people act with a political motive in mind. Once again, Rush tries to capitalize on a tragedy by blaming Obama.
