Rush Limbaugh: Obama ‘Doesn’t Have Slave Blood’

The conservative host uses the mic to attack the president

From the Root.

Conservative right-wing commentator Rush Limbaugh critiqued First Lady Michelle Obama‘s Democratic National Convention address, drawing up some rather sensational comments about the president. On his radio show, Limbaugh expressed his aversion with the first lady’s anecdotal tales of the president’s hand-me-down coffee tables and shoes one size too small.

“Obama did not grow up in poverty,” Limbaugh said. “His grandmother, the typical white woman, worked in a bank. Don’t give me this ‘down with the struggle’ business. He wasn’t down. In 2008, the Democrats were wringing their hands because he wasn’t authentically black … He wasn’t down with the struggle. He doesn’t have slave blood.”

Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy, having built his media persona as a contentious critic of the Democratic Party. More recently, he called Hurricane Isaac a conspiracy by President Barack Obama.

    Limbaugh is certifiably insane. he has GOT to be!!! The crap he utters is so putrid and
    absurd, yet he says it with such conviction. Even Archie Bunker made more sense than Rush.

    First they hate him because he’s black; and now that the DNC had a better convention than the hateful retards of the RNC, he’s not black enough. Limbaugh needs to know: Enough’s enough. Just retire…. or have your drug-induced heart-attack.

      Your name is awesome! Not nice calling people retards just because you agree with them however.

    Rush is unlikeable but, what if what he said is true? Why did we settle for a Black man who is just as much white as he is black? Obama is half as white as Rush. What has the half brother done for black folks? Let illegal Mexicans come in and steal our jobs? Time for a REAL black man to lead this country, not this inexperienced creation of the white man.

      Obama did not grow up poor as his wife tried to suggest he did at the DNC…if we read his books, biographies, etc..he and Michelle both grew up quite affluently..

    Most Slave Traders in Africa were Muslims and in Kenya, Barack Hussein Obama Senior’s ancestors were Slave Traders, SO our Barack Hussein Obama, Junior is a descendant of SLAVE TRADERS on his Father’s Side!!!
    The dimmoKKKRATs know this and SO they CREATED a LIE that he is a descendant of the FIRST American Slave (with no proof whatsoever) through his WHITE MOTHER!
    This obvious LIE has already been added to his website, the MYTH of Obama!

    Personally I don’t care what color he is………………he sucks a a president. Totally inept and a seller of snake oil. He should however get 49% of the votes ,since that number represents those who pay no federal taxes and love doggy bones.
