At the height of the Great Depression in the 1930s, many Americans fighting for survival ended up living in crudely built shantytowns known as “Hoovervilles,” in humiliating honor of President Herbert Hoover, who many blamed for the economic distress.
Now in 2010, radio giant Rush Limbaugh is declaring the United States has become one giant “Obamaville,” thanks directly to the policies of President Barack Obama.
“The whole country is Obamaville,” Limbaugh said on his program today. “Obama is Herbert Hoover. You know they used to call those unemployment camps Hoovervilles. Well, now we’re going to see Obamavilles springing up all across the nation.”
“Hoover was trying to fix things. Obama’s not. The only difference is Obama is doing this on purpose. Hoover wasn’t.”
Limbaugh took direct aim at the president’s comments yesterday when Obama insisted, “The economy is strengthening, we are into recovery.”
“It’s the summer of recovery. How’s that working out for you?” Limbaugh asked facetiously. “Thirteen thousand, 13,000 private-sector jobs added in June. If you divide 13,000 by 50, just for illustration purposes, you get 260 jobs created in the private sector per state. Two hundred sixty jobs per state. This is Herbert Hoover-type stuff.”
