"A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There's a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year," Obama said. "If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it's not surprising that would happen."Limbaugh, who's not used to being called on his bullshit by people of this stature, said:
"I actually don't believe this. Barack Obama, in my own state, raising money for his presidential campaign called me xenophobic at a fundraiser," Limbaugh said. "I thought this guy was the unity candidate? Calling me a Xenophobe? Responsible for hate crimes? My feelings are hurt here."I generally don't think Limbaugh warrants mention, but I think Obama was right to prop these two up as examples of the problem. And I think it's hilarious that Rush is sad.
