Rush, A Racist? Who'd A Thunk It?

From Politicususa:
On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh was speculating as to why First Lady Michelle Obama did not attend Sen. Robert Byrd’s funeral, and his speculation focused on Michelle Obama’s “pure slave blood,” and President Obama’s “lack of pure slave blood.” Limbaugh managed to not only take a shot at the deceased Byrd, but he also leveled a racial slur at the Obamas.


Limbaugh said, “I don’t know why Michele my belle is not there, but as has been said by several black civil rights leaders, Obama does not have authentic slave blood, but Michele does. We can only speculate. Maybe she is at a skybox at a baseball or football game, who knows?”
That's the leader of the GOP, folks. And they think that this stuff will really sell with the majority of Americans?

  1. Clinton and Obama revised history when eulogizing Mr. Byrd. Even the NAACP "forgot" a lot about the man who vowed he would not serve with a negro in WWII.

    Yes Byrd had a change of heart. So did the whole country but it did take Byrd about 20 years longer and there are documented stories of him not wanting an African American driver in his limo right up to the end.

    What intrigues me is how the left side of the blogosphere is all over Rush Limbaugh for being Racist yet fully accepting of the revision of history taking place over Mr. Byrd. This tells me it ain't about race or racism. It's all about ideology.

  2. Terry you are so correct on this.
