Obama Hits Limbuagh, Dobbs. Limbaugh "hurt"

Obama said:
"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.

Obama should remove the beam from his own eye before pointing a finger at Rush! Has he forgotten his very good friend and pastor so soon...Rev. Jeremiah (about as racist as they come) and what about his own wife's comments, captured on national TV? For a presidential candidate he shows remarkable hypocracy.

Limbaugh is the common voice of the middle class in this great country. He speaks of the squeeze put on them to maintain the high cost of our infrastructure, hospitals, social services, etc. required to support the influx of 12,000,000 poverty stricken illegals. Calling him a Xenophobiac is taking a "pot shot" at the very people whose sweat keeps this country afloat!
