President Barack Obama’s appearance Thursday at the Brent Spence Bridge spanning the Ohio-Kentucky border was a partisan move aimed at taunting House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Rush Limbaugh said Friday.
“He’s taunting,” Limbaugh said of Obama, who this week has been pitching his American Jobs Act nationwide.
The Brent Spence Bridge received federal stimulus money in 2009, and has yet to be repaired, the conservative talk-show host said on his radio program. The 48-year-old bridge carries an average of 170,000 vehicles each day.
“It’d be fun if they [Boehner and McConnell] were both there,” Limbaugh said. If they were, they could have put Obama on the spot because the “shovel-ready” project is “already getting federal money.”
“Where’s the fix?” he asked. “Where’s the money?”
Limbaugh also said Democrats need to convince Obama he should not run again.
“A lot of Democrats already are of the belief that Obama is toast,” he said. “I think we [Republicans] have to keep acting like we’re behind.”
A frank discussion about the president’s performance is the only way “to get Obama off the ticket,” Limbaugh said.
“There is not one Democrat alive who is going to actually compete against Obama in the primaries, and the primary reason is race,” he said.
