Limbaugh Says Gov. Christie Has ‘Man Love’ For Obama
"Conservative shock jock, Rush Limbaugh went after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his collaboration with President Barack Obama in assisting the recovery and rebuilding effort after Hurricane Sandy ravaged much of the New Jersey coastal neighborhoods."
“New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has decided to play the role of a Greek Column today for President Obama,” Limbaugh said, accusing the governor of effectively aiding the president’s electoral chances.
Limbaugh said Wednesday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s praise of President Barack Obama has been so effusive, he might just be going gay."
“Let’s just put it this way:
Is it wrong for one man to love another man?” Limbaugh asked during his Wednesday show.
“That man-love out there is isolated in the state of New Jersey.”
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated Christie’s state the worst of all, the outspoken Republican who gave a keynote address at the 2012 Republican National Convention has heaped praise on Obama for halting his campaign and ensuring that state and local governments receive all the resources needed to get the recovery underway in earnest.
However, Christie also cautioned a Fox News host on Tuesday to not confuse his words with personal political ambition.
“If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics then you don’t know me,” Christie said."
Christie meant that he cared more about the people in his state and their needs than the presidential election.
"That didn’t really make it through to Rush, however, who said that Christie instead looks like he’s playing “the role of a Greek column” for Obama’s reelection campaign.
He added that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who hasn’t been so breathless in his praise of the president, “has also endorsed Romney, by the way.”
Unfortunately for Rush, Bloomberg did not endorse Romney — in fact, the Republican mayor announced his endorsement of Obama on Thursday afternoon, citing the president’s commitment to taking action to counter the worst effects of climate change.'
Rush used to be good to listen to back when he took both sides of the political aisle to task for waste, fraud and abuse of power.
Rush is angry about what Christie has done.
And what did Governor Christie do?
Christie, in looking out the victims of Hurricane Sandy first, has dispelled the GOP myth that Obama couldn't work with Republicans- that Obama was unreasonable, inflexible, and incapable.
None of this is true but Republicans had many people convinced of their hype.
Now, Christie shows many independent voters otherwise.
Too bad, Rush.
And what's wrong with a little camaraderie between a Democratic President and a Republican Governor, if it gets aid for those in need more quickly?
Isn't this the reason we elect representatives- to work together?
Rush doesn't like the fact that the GOP conspiracy has been exposed- and just before voters hit the polls on Tuesday.
