Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh used some choice words on Tuesday to describe President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). Hours after Obama and Christie toured post-Hurricane Sandy New Jersey together, Limbaugh delivered what his analysis of the "bipartisanship" between the two men.
"Obama has money," Limbaugh said. "Governor Christie wants the money. Governor Christie needs the money, so the people will be helped," referring to the many folks who are still struggling to recover from the storm.
"So, Christie praises Obama," Limbaugh concluded. "It's a master-servant relationship."
The relationship between Obama and Christie reached a fever pitch on Tuesday, as the duo's Jersey Shore activities included some arcade games that resulted in a big stuffed bear prize. This was not the first instance of Limbaugh voicing an Obama-related hurricane conspiracy theory. Back in August 2011, he vowed that Obama wanted Hurricane Irene to be a "disaster" for economic reasons.
"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."
Limbaugh can always find just the right racist comment to describe President Obama at any given moment, but ever since Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie has been in conservatives' cross hairs for complementing Obama's response to the tragedy right before the general election. They saw it as a self-serving moment for himself as he readies a possible 2016 presidential run while hurting Romney's chances at the same time. Wingnuts still hold a grudge against the media because George Bush got lambasted by everybody for his horrific response to Hurricane Katrina.
