Discussing Obama, Limbaugh Goes With Racial Theme On Hannity

Reported by Ellen - January 22, 2009 -

Rush Limbaugh was Sean Hannity's special guest last night. I watched this interview but somehow missed what Think Progress picked up. As TP noted,

Limbaugh kept going with the racial theme throughout much of the interview. “He’s not black…he’s a human being,” he said. And while he claimed that the “drive-by media” only “care that he’s black,” Limbaugh added, “The fact that he’s African-American, his father was black, to me it’s irrelevant.” But Limbaugh later revealed what seems to be the true nature of his feelings on Obama’s race:

LIMBAUGH: We are being told that we have to hope he succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward, whichever, because his father was black, because this is the first black president.

"America loving" Limbaugh also said that only the left has racial prejudice.

Not surprisingly, Sean Hannity had no problem with anything Limbaugh said.
