President Barack Obama should repudiate — and the media should challenge — Teamsters President James Hoffa’s verbal attack on the tea party, Rush Limbaugh said Tuesday on his talk show. Limbaugh further accused Obama of hypocrisy.
“When is Obama going to repudiate Hoffa?” Limbaugh asked. “Obama wrote it for Hoffa — Obama suggested it — Don’t you just love the irony?”

Hoffa made the verbal attack while introducing the president during a Labor Day rally in Detroit, stating, “President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let’s take these son-of-a-bitches out.”

Limbaugh played the audio clip of Hoffa’s comments while music from “The Godfather” sounded in the background.

“Here we have James Hoffa and Barack Hussein Obama commemorating Labor Day in Detroit, a city that epitomizes the disaster brought about by” organized labor, he said, noting to the city’s 15.7-percent unemployment rate.

“I hope before this is all over, Hoffa has to go hide in Italy someplace,” Limbaugh said.

Instead of rebuking Hoffa’s “direct call for violence,” Obama praised the union leader.

“CNN was outraged when I called Obama a Chicago thug,” Limbaugh said, countering that Hoffa’s “over-the-top attack on the tea party” drew “no media outrage, no reports on CNN.”
