This is a humanitarian disaster that cries out for compassion and help on a massive scale

Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds; enthusiasm of the free and buoyant. education and free discussion are the antidotes of both.
~Thomas Jefferson, writer of the Declaration of Independence and president of the United States

Rush Limbaugh is making political capital on the suffering of thousands in Haiti by saying that Obama would improve his credibility with black and light skinned people in his swift reaction to the Haiti disaster when compared to his reaction to the attempted terrorist attack on a flight to Detroit. To make such a statement while a country with oppressing poverty and now tens of thousands of people dead and suffering is insensitive and cruel and shows a lack of compassion for his fellow man. The silence of Republicans to call this bigot on this is a disgrace.

Rush Limbaugh's friends Fox News is no better in their reaction to the tragedy in Haiti, where O'Reilly, Beck and Hannity are not talking so much about the tragedy but about Obama and his gaining votes from black people is insensitive and stupid.

This is a humanitarian disaster that cries out for compassion and help on a massive scale. President Obama is doing what any decent human being should do. Fox News has made political capital against Obama when they should be trying to help relieve the humanitarian disaster that is Haiti. Fox News is pandering to the racism and bigotry of the Right. This is sad and speaks to the mentality that is the Republican Right and Fox News
