This week, Rush Limbaugh discussed comments made by left wing supporter Cornel West, who pointed out the irony in how President Obama’s policies are affecting black people.

“We’re living in an age where we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus in terms of our visibility of our suffering,” said West. “The irony of the age of Obama in which black folk found themselves pushed to the back of the bus, our gay brothers and lesbians sisters more and more pushed to the center.”

Rush’s response to why this is happening was that it’s not what group of people Obama is more concerned with, but how much he can get out of a certain group.

“. . .That’s cause they got more money. They have more money to donate. I don’t mean to insult you, but I mean that’s why . . . the gay and lesbian brothers and sisters, they donate a lot of money, and they have to be paid back, so they get to move to the center of the bus, the front of the bus,” explained Limbaugh.
