Limbaugh not biting on Obama’s date night

The Republican National Committee (RNC) might be taking a swipe at President Obama for his weekend date in New York City, but Rush Limbaugh isn’t biting.

“Bickering over the Obama’s Saturday night date is chump change compared to some of the big stuff going on out there,” Limbaugh said during his radio show today. “There’s bigger stuff to grumble about than that,” he later added.

The RNC had criticized Obama for flying to New York for a date with his wife while the country is in recession.

“As President Obama prepares to wing into Manhattan’s theater district on Air Force One to take in a Broadway show, GM is preparing to file bankruptcy and families across America continue to struggle to pay their bills,” RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho wrote to reporters.

“Have a great Saturday evening–even if you’re not jetting off somewhere at taxpayer expense,” she added.

But alas, Limbaugh isn’t so enthused. The RNC really can’t catch a break these days. Even when they go after the “low hanging fruit,” conservatives (if Limbaugh is any indication) take issue with their strategy.
