As soon as the news of the massive Haitian earthquake broke, and after the horror of the event had sunk in, I knew that President Obama would be attacked immediately over it no matter how he responded by teabaggers and movement conservatives.

That's a sad statement to make, but after witnessing the behavior of the right wingers in America since Obama was elected in 2009, it wasn't that big a reach.

Rush Limbaugh leads the way, proclaiming exactly what I figured the insane right would say.

Obama discussed Haitian earthquake sooner than attempted Christmas bombing; "Did he apologize for America?"

With thousands of people dead already and as the suffering continues in Haiti, Limbaugh and his ilk only care about one thing: Destroying Obama.
