Limbaugh: National Hurricane Center Shifts Storm Projections To Help Obama
It’s all a government plot to hurt the Republican convention, and then remind people about how poorly the Bush administration handled Hurricane Katrina.
“I’m not alleging conspiracies here. The Hurricane Center is the regime; the Hurricane Center is the Commerce Department,” Limbaugh said on his talk show. “It’s the government. It’s Obama.”
The conservative talker suggested early forecasts, which showed the storm hitting Tampa, the convention’s host city, were intended to cause Republicans to cancel the first day of their convention. Newer models showing the storm striking New Orleans, he said, are intended to link the convention to memories of Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall seven years ago this week.
