Stossel, Limbaugh jump on Pat Robertson’s idiot train

Among the lead stories on the Fox News Web site is a piece by John Stossel claiming that a lack of American-style economic freedom is primarily to blame for the number of deaths in Haiti.
“The ultimate tragedy in Haiti was not the earthquake, Stossel writes. “It was Haiti’s lack of economic freedom.” In the meantime, Rush Limbaugh complains that Americans already give Haiti too much aid, and that Barack Obama will use the disaster “to boost his credibility with the black community.”
Hmm… makes you wonder why George W. Bush didn’t try that after Hurricane Katrina, in an area where black people can actually vote for the U.S. president. Of course Rush says Bush couldn’t do more in New Orleans because of all the Democrats in Lousiana.
