Rush Limbaugh claimed in his radio show Wednesday that the National Hurricane Center's warning that Tropical Storm Isaac could hit the Republican convention in Florida next week was wishful thinking, according to rawstory.com.
"The National Hurricane Center is Obama," he said. "The National Weather Service is part of the Commerce Department. It is Obama."
Isaac is currently taking aim at the Dominican Republic and Haiti and could threaten Florida next week as a hurricane.
Limbaugh questioned the need for the National Hurricane Center, which tracks such storms.
"They are talking about this Hurricane Isaac thing," he reportedly said. " We, who live in south Florida, become experts on it and we don't need the National Hurricane Center -- we don't need all these weather dolts analyzing this for us."
....."I can see Obama sending FEMA in in advance of the hurricane hitting Tampa so that the Republican convention is nothing but a bunch of tents in Tampa," he said. "A bunch of RVs and stuff. Make it look like a disaster area before the hurricane even hits there."

Front page of Houston Chronicle headline: "Rush Limbaugh plays politics with storms" - Actual article headline "Rush Limbaugh takes aim at Obama over hurricane forecast."
The full transcript.
Have to wonder if the Houston Comical got their talking points again from Media Matters or some other redactive liberal watchdog of Rush’s program.
The Chronicle reported it took it from here:
for a second there I was afraid Rush was gonna start doing shows on Project HAARP...
Not Media Matters, perhaps, but not much different:
About Raw Story
Raw Story is a progressive news site that focuses on stories often ignored in the mainstream media. While giving coverage to the big stories of the day, we also bring our readers’ attention to policy, politics, legal and human rights stories that get ignored in an infotainment culture driven solely by pageviews.
Founded in Cambridge, MA in 2004, Raw Story reaches more than 3 million unique readers per month and serves more than 13 million pageviews. Recent focal points have included Occupy Wall Street, Wikileaks, wiretapping and judicial abuse.
If the Comical is going to be reposting the internets, at least they could go someplace interesting like FR or Breitbart. And they wonder why circulation is down.
Rush is Right!
There are only a couple models that show the storm actually hitting Tampa.
So, are they having the convention or not? This kind of confusion could cause people to not watch it, not that these conventions get a lot of viewership. I heard that it would be a Cat 1 hurricane. That’s a lot of wind, but not the worst. Still, the GOP and the media better have some good generators around if the power goes out.
It’s sad watching guys who obviously need the money trying to give away the Houston Chronicle.
