Oh and as for Limbaugh. I'm not sure out of context that makes any sense...but is he saying donations to haiti will go to obama?
Or that anyone who gives to haiti is a liberal?
He's suggesting to his audience that President Obama is going to steal donations intended for Haiti. Roger Ebert's open letter to Limbaugh included the necessary context:
Justin of Raleigh, North Carolina: "Why does Obama say if you want to donate some money, you could go to whitehouse.gov to direct you how to do so? If I wanted to donate to the Red Cross, why do I have to go to the White House page to donate?"
Limbaugh: "Exactly. Would you trust the money's gonna go to Haiti?"
Rush: "But would you trust that your name's gonna end up on a mailing list for the Obama people to start asking you for campaign donations for him and other causes?"
At the time of this insinuation, the Haitian Donations link at WhiteHouse.gov pointed directly to the relevant page at RedCross.org. Today, it goes instead to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. Nonetheless, today Limbaugh again warned his audience against donating through WhiteHouse.gov
because of an unnamed study he read about welfare expenditures ten years ago.
Limbaugh also dismissed the crisis as an opportunity for Obama to burnish his credibility with the "light-skinned and dark-skinned black community,"
wondered aloud if he'd apologize for America, and today, he warmly welcomed his audience to "Week Two of Obama's Haiti Crisis."
My local conservative talk show host has been having a lot of fun with the Haitian catastrophe. Last week, he talked with his audience about how Haiti is a "liberal paradise; an entire country of poor minorities demanding hand-outs from the U.S. taxpayers rather than taking responsibility for their own hardships." One memorable caller angrily demanded to know why the Liberal Media was so hellbent on covering this story when all those "Haties" have to do is dig out food from collapsed grocery stores to eat while they rebuild.
So really, it's just a typical week in conservative talk radio.
