RUSH: The national conversation is consumed by race. How many Americans do you think went to vote in November of 2008 and voted for Barack Obama for one reason: He's African-American and they hoped that that change would signal the end of racism? They hoped that the very act of this horrible, unjust and immoral country finally electing an African-American would finally put the notion that we still are deeply racist behind us and demonstrate that we're not. How many people do you think voted for Obama for that one reason? I would say enough to get him elected. And of course all that's happened is things have gotten worse.
