Rush sticks it to Obama
Talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh today blasted President Obama and his appointees for the extended time period before there was a significant response to the oil well explosion off the coast of Louisiana, an event that has been described by some as potentially the biggest environmental threat to the U.S.
He also took swipes at the mainstream media for their kid-gloves treatment of the president regarding his responsibility to lead the nation.
“He said on Thursday, February 11th of this year, ‘Until jobs are being created to replace those that we’ve lost, until America is back to work, my administration will not rest and this recovery will not be finished.’ Well, he’s resting,” said Limbaugh.
“He’s playing golf. He waited 12 days to head down to Louisiana. I don’t know how many rounds of golf, how many pickup basketball games he’s played since then,” he said.
“Do we have an EPA? We do. It’s the Environmental Protection Agency. I’ve looked into what the director, the administrator has been doing during these 12 days, and the answer is ‘not much,’ I mean to do with the slick. I’ll just ask you point-blank: What has the EPA been doing after a BP rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico? What have they been doing? What has the EPA done? What have they done?”
