RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): They cant stop talking about slavery, and largely in a context of, 'Hey, you know what? It isn't settled yet.' And, 'Hey, you know what, we haven't fixed it yet." I mean, that's their starting point, and I think that's a no-win situation for us because we've made great stride. This country has made phenomenal strides since then. Undeniable. And we're one of the only countries on Earth that has. Great Britain being the other. This country has done more for and organized for minorities than any other nation on earth. I gave a guy analogy here on the program. We had a guy that called that wanted to know what was so bad about grievance politics, and I made an analogy for him. I said, sir, are you married? He said yeah. I said imagine that you -- your wife -- imagine that your wife has an affair, and it causes all kinds of acrimony, you almost lose your marriage. It's really a rocky period of time. But you and your wife get together, and you decide that you're going to forgive her, you're going to look past it for the sake of the marriage and kids, and you move forward. He said okay. Now imagine, sir, every argument you have, you continue to remind her that she's to blame for everything because she's the one that had the affair. I said, your relationship hasn't a prayer if you can't let it go. If all you can do is continue to remind her what you've already forgiven her for then the days of your relationship are over.
That's how I hear the Obama's. They love to wax eloquent about the early days and how they were 3/5 of a person, even though they never have been 3/5 of a person. He doesn't even have any slave blood. She does, but he doesn't, but they will admit they're never going to let it go.
