Limbaugh: Obama a 'One-Man Wrecking Crew'

Rush Limbaugh questioned President Obama's ability to manage the nation's economy today as U.S. Labor Department reports show new-job growth screeched to a halt in August.

“Actually, there was a guy hired in August,” Limbaugh said Friday on his radio program. But he was laid off Aug. 31, “less than two weeks after he was hired!” he laughed.

“Obama is a one-man wrecking crew” when it comes to the U.S. economy, Limbaugh said.

“After almost three years of Obama jobs programs…80 percent of Americans agree that we are in another recession,” he said.

Limbaugh called out CNN for defending the president during the financial crisis.

“CNN is so eager to save Obama’s bacon, that they point out, ‘But they’re wrong’,” he said of the poll that shows eight in 10 American believe the economy is, once again, in the doldrums.

“When there is a Republican in the White House, if most people think we are in a recession, we are,” he said. “That’s all that it takes.”

The White House is using the Labor Department report and the recent poll data to build momentum for the Sept. 8 presidential address to a joint session of Congress, Limbaugh said.

There’s no doubt the president will ask for another round of stimulus spending next week during the much-touted jobs speech, Limbaugh said.

“All of this talk about slipping back into recession, and even the jobs number — zero — I tell you, it’s gearing to next week’s big speech,” he said.

He said Obama’s speech, much like his 2008 presidential campaign, will be “devoid of any substance.”

“I think the only thing that Obama could do…that would be convincing…is to resign,” Limbaugh said.
