Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh called the mutual respect between President Obama and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie a master-servant relationship this week, after the two walked the Jersey Shore boardwalk discussing Hurricane Sandy relief.
"Obama has money," Limbaugh said. "Governor Christie wants the money. Governor Christie needs the money, so the people will be helped.”
And thus: "So, Christie praises Obama. It's a master-servant relationship."
Limbaugh mocked what he defined as the liberal definition of bipartisanship: liberal masters ruling over conservative slaves. He scolded Christie especially for acting as a “Greek column” by supporting Obama’s presidency.
Supporting Obama now could improve Christie’s bipartisan standing in the next presidential election. Likewise, highlighting the efforts of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and government success could clear the air for a scandal-plagued White House.
