Rush Limbaugh keeps on managing to up the ante when it comes to bashing President Obama. And this time, his rhetoric has become expressly racial.

While bashing Newsweek editor Evan Thomas for saying last week that Obama was attempting to be “sort of God” in his approach to international relations — that is, moving beyond a single-minded American approach and thinking globally — Limbaugh then made a reference to Obama’s racial background as a seemingly disqualifying factor.

Said Limbaugh: “It is offensive to the sensibilities of millions of people to hear a member of the state-run media refer to a half-black, half-white human being with no experience running anything of substance referred to as a god. He may be president of the United States, but he’s not a god.”
