RUSH: I’m holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers a paragraph from a story in the Washington Post on April 12th of 2012. Right here. And it was an opinion piece. “Obama and Romney Both Come from a Ancestry of Polygamy.” It’s an opinion piece. Again, I’m minding my own business and I’m just recounting something from the past. Washington Times, knowing full well that this was in Obama’s past, had to go out and talk about polygamy in the Mormon church and bash Romney for it so that Obama didn’t stand out on the subject. But Romney has never been part of a polygamist relationship. He’s not had multiple wives, nor has Obama, but — well, let me just read to you the paragraph.
“The line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo tribe,” which Obama just talked about. “His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters.” So not only was there some polygamy going on, there was some incest happening. Well, incest once removed by Obama’s great-grandfather.
