As NewsBusters reported Saturday, former ABC White House correspondent Sam Donaldson told the Huffington Post, "Many on the political right believe this president [Barack Obama] ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices [sic] and political view but for who he is, an African American! These people and perhaps even certain news organizations (certainly the right wing talkers like Limbaugh) encourage disrespect for this president."
Limbaugh responded to this nonsense by email moments ago:
"Sam's premise, sadly, is ignorant, simplistic, clichéd, predictable and wrong. The President's ideas are what I oppose, not his skin color, which I couldn't care less about. He's the President of the United States and his race does not inoculate or immunize him from substantive critique."
We couldn't have said it any better.
If only media members such as Donaldson would understand this tremendously basic concept about politics in America today.
It's not about race. It's about policies and ideas.
Only the Left and their media minions are fixated on the color of Obama's skin.
Thanks for clearing that up for us, Rush.
