On his Friday radio show, Rush Limbaugh dives into yet another race conversation. In this snippet, he goes back to the meme that President Barack Obama isn't qualified to be president.

"[For] the media, the Democrat adults and the establishment, the Clinton years were their Nirvana. And if Obama had not been African American, he would never have been elected. It would have been Hillary and we'd still have had the love affair with the Clintons going on. This ... injection of race into the Democrat primary and overall presidential contest did what the insertion of race does to most subjects: It totally distorts it."

Listen to the rest of the clip on Mediaite, where he also talks about how the age of the "Clintonistas" is back.
