Rush Limbaugh: Obama Wanted Hurricane Irene To Be A 'Disaster' (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Rush Limbaugh said on his Monday show that President Obama was "hoping" that Hurricane Irene would be a "disaster."

Limbaugh firmly came down on the side of those who think that the media oversold the destructive power of Irene. He said that the storm was blown out of proportion to "push the leftist agenda," and tied it to what he said was Obama's desire to have a huge disaster.

"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."
