    and when he won election to Congress. To be honest, he's never really impressed me as a particularly effective leader or politician, pretty milquetoast. And you're right that he was never a big supporter of Obama when he was running for President, for whatever reason. So not only is Limbaugh's statement completely and disgustingly racist, it is flat wrong. But Rush has a long long history of portraying African Americans as not being able to think for themselves, and as voting for Black politicians like Obama only because they are Black. For Limbaugh, every decision that any African American politician ever makes has something to do with their race, he seems obsessed with this.
