Obama: Limbaugh, Dobbs responsible for rise in hate crimes against Latinos

The Messiah is starting the typical general election Democrat "victimization card" early:

"A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There's a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year,'' Obama said. "If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it's not surprising that would happen."

And what, precisely, have Limbaugh and Dobbs done to "gin up" this hatred? Oh, right -- they've spoken out forcefully against illegal immigration.

I thought Obama was smart. I thought he was all about a "new kind" of politics.

Two words: Empty and suit.

UPDATE: Hate crimes against the disabled grew a thirty-fold between 2002 and 2007. What do Limbaugh and Dobbs have against the disabled?
