Sometimes it’s really quite surreal watching Fox News and their paid contributors go to such incredible lengths to defend the Republicans and blame Obama for everything. Michelle Malkin went on Fox and Friends to talk to Steve Doocy, the dumbest man on television, and deliver this delusional nonsense:
On Fox & Friends on Thursday, co-host Steve Doocy led a segment about Sandy relief by noting that Obama is on vacation in Hawaii and added, “Meanwhile … there are tens of thousands of people whose houses were destroyed by Sandy.” Doocy continued, “And it’s interesting — you go back 60 days, the president of the United States was out at a big photo op with Chris Christie, saying, ‘I’m going to eliminate the red tape. I’m going to make sure that FEMA follows through.’ And now 60 days later, nothing.”
After a montage of Obama speaking about cutting through red tape for Sandy aid was aired, Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin said, “Well, golf clap for that Oscar-winning performance reel from Obama, paying lip service to the exigency and emergency and urgency of helping out Sandy victims. Aloha and mahalo, right?” Malkin later added, “I think it’s ridiculous to fully blame Boehner for the gridlock that’s happening over this bill.”
Ridiculous? Obama can’t spend a dime without Congress appropriating it. He has used the bully pulpit to push Congress to pass the relief bill. The Democratic-controlled Senate passed a $60 billion relief package and then Boehner refused to bring it up for a vote. In fact, he promised the legislators from New York and New Jersey that he would hold a vote and then reneged on that promise, prompting a furious reaction from Rep. Peter King and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both Republicans. So who else could possibly be to blame other than Boehner?
